ZOMG animated GIFs!!!!

Jack Sloss, Upside Ground

First off, I love Fleisher-Ollman Gallery for using an animated GIF successfully on their website. I have a hunch that this is the work of Claire Iltis, the Assistant Director, but I'm not sure. Awesome.

Fleisher-Ollman puts on some bangin' group shows -- they seem to have a lot of fun with them and use their excellent collection and connections really well. Rich Text is no exception. Rich Text, which focuses on contemporary work that uses text (duh), is a really varied and satisfying show. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures at the opening, so I can't post any images. Highlights for me include Alex DaCorte's birthday-banner pieces, Anthony Campuzano's Diebenkorn-text hybrids, and Bob and Roberta Smith's giant wooden walls of text. Everyone go see it!
