REGIONAL LISTINGS

ongoing

Rob Pruitt — 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Aspen Art Museum, 590 N. Mill St., Aspen. Since the early 1990s, Pruitt’s risk-taking investigations into American popular culture have taken many forms. From his notorious “Cocaine Buffet” (1998) and glitter portraits of pandas to such events as his ongoing flea market and annual art awards, Pruitt has employed a post-pop sensibility to playfully satirize the art world and its ambivalent relation to celebrity and popular culture. His exhibition at the museum will be the artist’s first-ever solo museum survey in America. Call 970-925-8050.

Thea Djordjadze — 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Aspen Art Museum, 590 N. Mill St., Aspen. Originally trained as a painter, Djordjadze is best known for creating sculptural installations that combine found and constructed elements in carefully choreographed settings. Employing materials ranging from the elegant to the everyday, Djordjadze’s installations often suggest fragmentary arrangements of furniture and other functional objects, oscillating between such categories as abstraction and decoration, model and reality, process and product. And while her works may develop out of her interests in cinema, architecture and literature, their references remain oblique, in effect setting a mood rather than telling a story. This will be Djordjadze’s first major solo exhibition in North America. Call 970-925-8050.

Mountain Fair Poster Contest: People’s Choice Award — 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Round Room, Third Street Center, Carbondale. View and vote on your favorite Mountain Fair Poster Contest submission.
