Art Review: Yumiko Glover

Reminders of Armageddon

The press release and poster for Yumiko Glover’s current exhibition, Pushing the Button 2,058 Times, at the Red Barn Project Space on UCSB’s Santa Barbara campus contains no PR hype or typical art marketing material, no text bragging about how the show will present ground-breaking material or test the limits of art practice in our time or any of the usual art-world bombast we see so often these days. Besides the necessary location and time information, it simply contains three quotes and their source:

Joe Cardella 1945-2018

On Thursday 15 May 2018 the Ventura arts community lost one of its long-time leaders and visionaries, Joe Cardella. Cardella had survived a difficult battle with esophageal cancer with the help of his primary caregivers, the photographer and videographer Dina Pielaet, the writer Amy Jones, and Jonell McClain. Joe had been spending time with fellow artists and friends as his strength allowed, but finally the cancer returned with new intensity.

Ojai Music Festival

Here in the 805 we have some of the most world-renown arts festivals in the United States. In Santa Barbara we have the annual Santa Barbara Film Festival, which has grown into a major force in the international film world, now being the closest thing to the Cannes Film Festival in the Western Hemisphere. Others try to claim this title of course, but Santa Barbara’s Film Festival walks its talk. In the realm of music, and more precisely New Music, the Ojai Music Festival has garnered a world-wide reputation unique to itself.

Running for four days [this year the Ojai Music Festival will run from Thursday 7 June through Sunday 10 June 2018, at various venues] the festival continues to bring the leading edge of musical composition and performance to our ears.

Review: The Baby Dance Mixed

 
THE BABY DANCE MIXED 4
Theatre
Review
Baby Tangle
As May seems to be the month in the 805 for plays about deluded people living in trailers, Ventura's Rubicon offers us Jane Anderson's world premier of The Baby Dance: Mixed. A two act, highly charged emotional drama involving two couples, one who cannot have a baby, and a poor couple about to have one, Baby Dance: Mixed features an extraordinary cast. One highlight of this production, and a reason in itself for going to see it, is Krystle Rose Simmons' portrayal of Wanda, the pregnant woman.
