Des Moines Art Center and Alison Hiltner

Hello SOTAns! This week in the news, we talk about how the Met Museum has hired Marie Kondo to deaccession objects in their collection. Presumably, only that which sparks joy may remain. Jasa took a recent trip to the lovely city of Des Moines, Iowa and recounts the pleasantly surprising art world there. Sarah presents an interview with local artist Alison Hiltner whose work, often mechanical or biological in nature, presents the viewer with an in-depth, organic experience.
