Curated by Craig Olson, “Idiot’s Delight” at Janet Kurnatowski is about joy, materiality, a wholehearted embrace of the impractical. “It’s an idiot’s delight, blowing like a circle around
our skulls, blowing through the buttons of our coats,” Olson writes in his statement. “It carries and
encourages us to seek these improbable ends, the conception and the
increase. The soul of an idiot is always dancing on the end of her
tongue, even when fools rush in. It reminds us of the impractical
veracity that love truly is a many splendored thing, and life is brief!”
Hell yes! Enjoy these images I took at the opening in November.
Artists include Peter Acheson,

the show, I’ve lost my notes.)
