Demetrius Oliver (MFA '04) featured in the Village Voice's "Best Art of 2010", December 29th

Demetrius Oliver (MFA '04) has been featured in the Village Voice's "Best Art of 2010" review. The Village Voice's intrepid art critics have been at it all year, striding from gallery to gallery, museum to museum and several other locations. After 12 months of gazing and pondering, and a fair amount of debate, three Voice writers selected their top five exhibits of 2010. R.C. Baker chose Oliver's "Jupiter" (The Highline project). Baker notes that, "With the city's most magical public space as a backdrop, this young multimedia artist combined a billboard depicting such mysterious tableaux as empty violin cases wedged into open windows with stargazing sessions and musicians jamming on Coltrane's 'Jupiter'."
