Katie is an irreverent, ironic parody artist who worked with twenty kids, playing with the notion of slowing down or speeding up time. The installation is about a funky machine making anti-aging protective gear, and the whole space is like a factory, with a series of lenticular prints of ArtLab students in a sort of assembly line, explains PlatteForums Judy Anderson. And in the lower part of the Idea Box is a kiosk with student films for bogus products. Its all about the nature of desire.
Anderson and MCA director Adam Lerner hope to continue this initial partnership annually; see the installation at MCA, 1485 Delgany Street, through April 4. Admission tonight is a nickel for teens and ten cents for adults before 8 p.m.; regular museum admission is $5 to $10. Get info at www.mcadenver.org.
