Alex Gray, formerly with ArtPace and Artadia, has curated the opening show at Ballroom Marfa. OPTIMO: Manifestations of Optimism in Contemporary Art, will open the weekend of April 23-24 in West Texas. Gray has brought together nine artists “whose works celebrate life, incorporating visual pleasure, humor, interactivity, color, technology, design, politics, landscape, spirituality and popular culture.” Included are Polly Apfelbaum, Martin Creed, Karen Finley, Forcefield, Emily Jacir, Beatriz Milhazes, Takashi Murakami, Adam Pendleton, & Leo Villareal. Golly.
