The Sights of 'Out of Sight'

The second year of Out of Sight opened last weekend and saw curators Greg Lundgren, Beth Sellars, Sierra Stinson, Minh Nguyen, Julia Fryett and Molly Sides transform King Street Station once again (with exhibition designer Scott Lawrimore), this time with even more ambitious installations sprawled or suspended in the rafters, paintings, video and sculpture by artists across the region, and performers taking over nooks and crannies—or in one case go-go dancing on a plinth. Some numbers are a testament to the behemoth effort by artists to go big, like Jennifer Zwick’s sculpture made of 14,976 playing cards, Mike Rathbun’s installation constructed out of 13,000 feet of poplar and Gerri Sayler’s 2,250 pipe cleaners blossoming out of thin air. Here’s a look at some of the art and events from the opening day’s preview. The exhibition remains open through this month, with gallery hours on Saturdays and Sundays.
