#lategram Even though the show closed more than a week ago, I can’t stop thinking about “Parallels," the centerpiece, of Barbara Kasten’s “Parti Pris” exhibition @bortolamigallery. When I first encountered it, I was amazed by the fluorescent colors that outline the ends of each balanced piece. The impossible balance of this construction stems from Kasten’s use of architectural language. “Parti Pris” is an architectural term that means the chief organizing principal of a project, which in this case it seems to be tension, as that is what keeps the piece balanced and stable. Each component needs one another to keep them from collapsing. For those of you that got to visit this colorful show, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
