Last week saw the birth of Springsteen, a new gallery opened up in the Copycat Building (1511 Guilford Ave., B303). Run by Amelia Szpiech and Hunter Bradley, the gallery came out of the gates with Dust-Off, a strong showing by local artists, most of whom are somehow engaged in the difference or distance between the digital world, products, and, perhaps, the possibility of authentic experience. Especially notable is Nick Vyssotsky's "Untitled (Weed)," which is a fake pot plant in a glass cube filled with Mountain Dew White Out. Perched on a metal stand at eye level, it almost looks as if the plant is cast in some kind of milky, semen-looking plastic. But as you step around the floor, the bubbles rise, burst, and regather, and then you notice the liquid shift, dangerously close to spilling over the edges of the lidless cube. Milton Croissant III's CARTOON POEMZ series is also quite interesting in the way the works blend cartoony images, 1980s-looking poster art, and high-art ideas like cubism into a coherent whole. (Szpiech and Bradley said they are planning a solo show of Croissant's work.) Through May 3, with closing reception.
