Artist Talk: Sheila Klein and Ries Niemi

Art Talk

Artists Sheila Klein and Ries Niemi discuss their latest show "Making up stories and looking at things sideways..." Sheila Klein's mixed-media bricolage works "are inspired by both the basic materials of the street and also the random things one sees while walking." Ries Niemi has been stealing and appropriating text, making mash-ups and samplings of pop imagery and middle-aged angst for years.
