SPACES Finds a Compass




Given its name, SPACES could hardly pick a more appropriate show than Internal Compasses, curated by Jeff Chiplis, Jeanne Grossetti and Vlada Vukadinovic. Press materials describe the artists in the show as "visual thinkers who map, code and catalogue experiences and information, then systematically arrange the material evidence according to personal internal strategies." Images from the artists include explorations of space defined by lines or lines of force rendered in some physical way, like Athens, Ohio, artist Sarah FitzSimmons' tent sculptures that mirror geographic features of their settings. Internal Compasses opened Friday, along with a show by Israeli artist Efrat Klipshtien and Brooklyn-based Sung Jin Choi's Ambient Sound in the SPACELab. SPACES (2220 Superior Viaduct,, 216.621.2314). It's free.
