ÆQAI—a Cincinnati-based e-journal for critical thinking, review and reflective prose on contemporary visual art—has published a review written by Steve Kemple of Michael Casselli’s most recent exhibition ‘a tacit agreement’:
“A Dayton, Ohio living room has been converted into a simulation death chamber. Walkthrough the door and it hits you in the stomach: the smell of disinfectant and an uneasy superposition of the state and domicile. There is a gurney primed for lethal injection. You can see it through plexiglass picture windows in a newly constructed wall, enclosing a third of the gallery.”
Visual artist Michael Caselli is a graduate of the Class of 1987 and is the Chair of the Arts Division at Antioch College where he teaches sculpture and installation.
