superHUMAN and New Mystics at the CUAC

… those ordinary, and very real citizens who were caught trying to figure out how to react to a black superhero crawling past at their feet, fitted out in an elaborate costume but accompanied by a meager crew, may have paused to marvel, not at his narrative deeds, but rather at his having found the means and the courage to live out his vision in a necessarily pubic space.

In the July 2012 edition of 15 Bytes Geoff Wichert examines two new shows at the CUAC that explore works that tap into various cultural narratives, from the super heroes of comic books to the mystic shamans of primitive cultures.

Geoff Wichert has degrees in critical writing and creative nonfiction. He writes about art to settle the arguments going on in his head.
