Apex: Sang-ah Choi

RICHARD SPEER
Friday January 18
Portland Art Museum
1219 SW Park Ave.
 
The glittery panels, cereal boxes and blow-up Easter Bunny and Frosty the Snowman that make up Sang-ah Choi's exhibition are intended to critique American culture, yet they are so visually seductive, they wind up celebrating it. This is commodity critique and Charles Jencksian double-coding repackaged for the millennial set. It sets itself up to pierce our shallow, consumerist American hearts with a rapier, but the glint of light across the metal blade is so mesmerizing, all we can do is ooh and aah. Through March 31.
