Piotr Chizinski's The Third Culture
Where: Belmont's Leu Gallery
When: Through Sept 30

I spill a lot of ink complaining about art shows that close in the same month that they open. With some exhibits, it's merciful. With others, it's a damn, dirty shame. Piotr Chizinski's hilarious, humbling exhibit The Third Culture blends art and sociology to examine classism in America through a series of Hockney-esque photo-collages. The consumer goods, furniture, books and art in a series of living room images are given point values. Each space is tallied up based on its contents to see how people from different walks of life express themselves and their class in the places they inhabit. The show also features large paper models of an imagined domestic fleet of FEMA ships and vehicles that could be deployed to natural disaster areas. See it before it's gone!
