Aggregated or aggravated, Andrea Zittel stacks the deck in Palm Springs

IMG_6438

The Palm Springs Art Museum’s Architecture and Design Center accepted my $5 to see Eye on Design: Andrea Zittel’s Aggregated Stacks and the Collection of the Palm Springs Art Museum

Andrea Zittel, an artist who lives in Wonder Valley, Joshua Tree, plasters leftover cartons together. And she and the curators pulled out some Navajo rugs to go with a couple of her own weavings.

There’s this mumbo-jumbo about how “the fractured or decomposing grid represents the reality of the human condition.”

Every claim must be true, because she exhibits her work all over the world.

Better than the exhibit, I enjoyed the short and stylish film Andrea Zittel: Art & Design.

On the way out I was asked to fill out a survey, which included the question asking if I would return to this exhibit.

Hmmm. I got the gist of it the first time.
