Loren Munk, the mastermind behind The James Kalm Report, has an exhibition at Minus Space in Brooklyn through January 29, 2011. The exhibition, called “Becoming Modern in America,” features more than 20 vintage issues of Life magazine spanning the years 1936-1972, and two of Munk’s recent paintings. Someone had to make a video of the opening, even if only to point out how brilliant Loren’s James Kalm videos are in comparison. It’ a shame I didn’t get there earlier or understand how to work the video feature on my phone a little better….but luckily Jason Andrew was there to help.
