Olda Reviews: Tempus for the Spring and Us for Each Other

These days marked by austerity seem to be shifting into days marked by crowd sourcing, a trend to which Tampa Bay has warmed up quickly. Indeed, around here crowd sourced funds appear to nearly outpace great ideas needing a kick-start.


On view at Ringling Museum – Sanford Biggers uses the study of ethnological objects, popular icons, and the Dadaist tradition to explore cultural and creative syncretism, art history, and politics.

On view at Tampa Museum – This exhibition includes two recent video works, cocker (2010) and post time (2012) that explore his interest in the masculine figures. Levine is less concerned with the actual fight than with the rituals in which these men partake during fight preparation.
