The Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles is exhibiting “No Wrong Holes: Thirty Years of Nayland Blake.” Curated by Jamillah James, the exhibition is the most comprehensive survey of Nayland Blake’s art. The exhibition spotlight’s Blake’s interest on feminism and queer liberation and their investigation of subcultures ranging from punk to the BDSM and leather communities. The exhibition, which is on view through January 26, 2020, will be accompanied by a forthcoming catalogue.

On the second segment, Ann Hamilton talks about her recent work. She’s included in “Here: Ann Hamilton, Jenny Holzer, Maya Lin” at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus. The exhibition presents work by three Ohio-born artists whose careers have overlapped with the Wexner’s own thirty-year history. Elements of the exhibition extend beyond the Wexner and across The Ohio State University campus and Columbus. It was curaetd by Michael Goodson with Lucy I. Zimmerman and Kristin Helmick-Brunet, and remains on view through December 29.

Hamilton also discusses this recent Laura Stewart-curated installation at the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute.
