Just got word that Ballroom alum Mika Tajima, who was in our 2007 exhibition Every Revolution Is a Roll of the Dice, has two upcoming exhibitions — Abstract Possible at Tensta Konsthall in Stockholm and a group show, , at Massimo de Carlo in Milan. Abstract Possible, curated by Maria Lind, runs from 12 January 2012 through 22 April 2012, and deals with abstraction and contemporary art, while , curated by Elena Tavecchia, is a group exhibition of young artists who live and work in New York, opening 25 January in Milan. If you find yourself in Sweden or Italy, be sure to stop by!

p.s. Fascinating new series in the New York Times about “the real artists of Marfa.” First installment out today, featuring Foundation for Jammable Resources, our favorite local hair-scorching instrumental band. More profiles to come, including Ballroom’s own associate curator, Erin Kimmel, plus musician Ross Cashiola, who’s played twice at Ballroom.
