Is This It by Cincinnati artist Joey Versoza, curated by Justine Ludwig, has a helter-skelter approach.
And while “Fans of Kurt Cobain” seems a little easy and obvious — a phalanx of room fans and some flannel shirts hanging from a chandelier — it’s also touching when you think of how quickly time has passed since flannel-loving grunge (and Cobain) mattered to culture.
Versoza is on to something — how we remember pop culture highpoints after they pass — that feels meaningful but still is being shaped. That’s exciting.
Is This It is up through Feb. 2, 2014. More at contemporaryartscenter.org.
