hyperallergic "For this reason, Past Disquiet: Narratives and Ghosts from The International Art Exhibition for Palestine, 1978, now on view through June 1 at MACBA, Museu d’art contemporani in Barcelona, and curated by Kristine Khouri and Rasha Salti, is an important corrective to this academic and curatorial trend — both timely and ground-breaking. It is notable that they refer to themselves as both curators and researchers in the exhibition brochure, since they undertook the impressive and exhaustive process of recuperating this event.

The exhibition evokes the event within broader contexts of international artistic and political alliances, presenting archival documents, photographs, videos, and interviews. Organized into four sections: Catalogue of The International Art Exhibition for Palestine, Beirut, 1978; Exhibition History; Portraits and Characters; and Map of Actions, Events, and Agents from Japan to South Africa to South America and Other Museums in Exile. It evocatively reconstructs an ephemeral event that left few traces. The beautiful installation design leads visitors through an enveloping trajectory that puts them in the place of the curators and researchers. At the same time, as visitors walk through the archival materials, they may reflect on their own memories of visiting exhibitions."

hyperallergic Joe Roberts draws on pop-cultural imagery from the 1960s to the ’90s, filtering them through his own experiences, and re-presenting them in mixed-media works that recall Mike Kelley or Chris Johanson. Mickey Mouse, Casper, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles all make appearances, but here they’re dropping acid or eating pizza, fellow travelers in Roberts’s personal journey. This Friday is the release party for a collection of 10 years of his art from Unpiano books as well as a reception for a weekend exhibition at Slow Culture (5906 N. Figueroa Street, Highland Park, Los Angeles). 3d
