MY GIRLFRIEND IS IN A COMA...Or She's Just Not That Into You, Dude
by Robert del Valle for Real Detroit Weekly | March 14-20
If nothing else, My Girlfriend Is In a Coma is the single best name for an exhibit we've come across in many a year, and the MONA exhibit itself is a singular and enlightening overview of how our talented friends in Japan tackle the myriad possibilities of abstract art.
Jessica Hopkins has assembled an impressive lineup and the manner in which these artists address thematic nuances is a fresh and startling revelation.
Among those featured: Nobu Matsui, Kenzu Nagawa, Kiko Kobayashi, Mugi Takei and Reiko Yamamoto.
Opening reception is (you guessed it) 3/17 from 6-10pm. Hey, a little sake goes very well with Guinness! 7 Saginaw St. in Pontiac.
