Trisha Baga <3
so good i can’t even… @The Whitney AND she’s only 27!
her NY TIMES write up is really sweet too, recognizing and trying to amend the institutional generation gap and all
“Sometimes a precocious youngster brings to the table intriguing news of her own burgeoning generation. If Ms. Baga typifies her 20-something cohort, then a description of what she does from her Web site is noteworthy. It says that she ‘engages the formal languages and concerns of sculpture, painting, cinema, music, photography, comedy and fiction’ to direct attention to ‘the acts of looking and recognizing, and the gap in between.’ To be an artist of Ms. Baga’s sort is not to be good at anything in particular, but to be a porous intelligence open to the world and to all possible ways of mirroring it.” -Ken Johnson, NY Times
