Berndnaut Smilde @ Land of Tomorrow

Feb. 15-March 26

Land of Tomorrow
233 W. Broadway • 632-6500

Normally you find clouds by looking up at the sky. Not so with Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde, who creates them as temporary art installations. It’s quite a coup that LOT is hosting Smilde in his first solo exhibition in America, and where he will be creating his next cloud “sculpture.” “You could see the cloud as a sign of misfortune,” Smilde says. “You could also read it as an element out of the Dutch landscape paintings in a physical form in a classical museum hall. At the same time I wanted to make … a very clear image, an almost cliché and cartoon like visualization of having bad luck …” The opening reception is Friday beginning at 7 p.m. and will feature the Lexington group Italian Beaches. —Jo Anne Triplett
