New Works from China & Jim Riswold: Art People and a Cow

Jim Riswold harpoons modern icons of the art world—Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, etc.—while simultaneously biting the hand that feeds, producing work that is "beautifully sleek and distinctively commercial." The speed of his production (this is his sixth solo show since 2005), as well as his willingness to offend, are propelled by his chronic leukemia. Meanwhile, in a companion exhibit having little to do with Riswold, but lots to do with PAM's current China Design Now exhibit, Augen Gallery DeSoto presents a group show of new works from Chinese artists. The collection ruminates on China's overhaul in the last few decades, and the struggle for personal identity.
