Isto Cash & Laxmi Luthra at Michael Strogoff

28 Jun 2013

Itso Cash & Laxmi Luthra
Notes on the Desert
Sunday, June 30 @ 7:00PM

‘The desert is spread everywhere but can always reach new depths.’

Michael Strogoff invites you for a pair of talks by Laxmi Luthra and Isto Cash.

Luthra will bring three seemingly disparate videos into relation through a close analysis of what speaks through them and what we can hear about contemporary existence by listening: a DLP Cinema-Texas Instruments trailer, a french pantyhose advertisement shown in movie theaters in the early-1970s, and a promotional video highlighting advances in the military-industrial mimicry of four-legged animal mechanics for robotic warfare.

Cash will present a snapshot of recent uses of the theory of abstraction in artistic discourse, including discussion of gallery and museum installations by Allan Sekula and Reena Spaulings, and will explore why this theory, innovative in the mid-19th century, might be having an afterlife in the early 21st.

Abstraction, mediation, and a good time will be had by all.

Post-Growth: The Rest of Your Marfa Weekend

It might seem like all of the heat is happening on Friday night, but rest assured that your Marfa weekend lasts long past cleaning your plate at the community dinner …

• Early risers can join Rashid Johnson for an exhibition walk-through at Ballroom Marfa on Saturday, March 9, at 11:30am. The video above from a walk-through of his solo exhibition, Message To Our Folks, at the Miami Art Museum suggests the sort of in-depth background on offer.

From the Chinese Buffet to the Texas Chainsaw Cemetery Cleanup: Your Four Day Marfa Weekend Starts Now

21 Feb 2013



Local musician Ross Cashiola brings his monthly WAR & CINEMA open mic to Padre’s. As he tells the Big Bend Sentinel, “I want this to be an easy platform for people to try out new songs and new things.” New things including but not limited to poetry, plays and “even stand-up comedy.”

There’s an opening reception for Chinati artist in residence MATT ROBERTS at the Ice Plant from 6-8pm — an excellent opportunity to pre-game War & Cinema while experiencing the artist’s “loose narrative that reawakens the sense of wonder for what is nearest.” Roberts “works primarily in sculpture, employing extra-sculptural gestures such as walking and mapping to form the dense web of his understanding of place.” Listen to a walk-through preview of the show on Marfa Public Radio.

jesse sugarmann / Recent Work About The Big Three


The evening starts at 6p at Michael Strogoff, a new addition to the Marfa landscape from Ballroom’s Associate Curator Erin Kimmel and Nicolas Miller. JESSE SUGARMANN‘s Recent Work About The Big Three is part of a body of work that flows from the artist’s interest in “the way that car accidents function as instant monuments to traumatic events.”

And then it’s off to the aforementioned Psychic Ills meltdown happening at Padre’s at 9pm.
