Michael Velliquette (IAIR 04.1) in New York
The colorful paper sculptures and drawings of Michael Velliquette, IAIR 04.1 and 2002 travel grant recipient, are currently on display at DCKT Contemporary in New York City. “Awaken and Free What Has Been Asleep” is Velliquette’s third New York solo exhibition.
Writes Paul Laster of Time Out New York, “By far the strangest piece has to be the triangular Meat Eater, which simultaneously resembles an aerial view of an airport terminal, a Tibetan mandala and a vagina dentata. It’s the most revealing example, perhaps, of the multivalence of Velliquette’s art: its ability to convey a variety of meanings, and leave itself open to individual interpretation.”
“Awaken and Free What Has Been Asleep” is on display till May 1.
If you’re interested in seeing Velliquette’s work in San Antonio, look no further than the permanent collections of the Linda Pace Foundation (by appointment only), San Antonio Museum of Art, Grand Hyatt Hotels Collection, and the Bexar County Courthouse.
