TONY TASSET: “ME AND MY ARROW”
MARCH 18-APRIL 23
Sometimes an arrow is just an arrow. Sometimes it ain’t. The question of which is which, in “Me and My Arrow,” a grid of 66 arrow paintings and some additional sculpture by Chicago artist Tony Tasset at Kavi Gupta Gallery’s Elizabeth Street space in the West Loop, will be up to the viewer. Could the artist, in his wily, open-ended way, be referring to fluctuations in markets (including the art market)? Could it be a reference to political fortunes in the age of polling—who’s rising, who’s falling—or to who’s trending on the Internet? Or is he commenting, slyly, on criticism (including art criticism), with its off-the-cuff judgments and reductive, thumbs-up/thumbs-down dichotomies? Or, more generally, on our national obsession with evaluating everything that comes before us? You be the judge—in which case, perhaps, you’ve just made the artist’s point.
