Haiku Reviews: From Aida to Beethoven (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 11/26/10 01:15 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 07:15 PM ET

HuffPost Arts' Haiku Reviews is a weekly feature where invited critics review exhibitions and performances in short form. Some will be in the traditional Haiku form of 5x7x5 syllables, others might be a sonnet or a string of words together. This week Peter Frank, George Heymont and Laurence Vittes give quick takes on performing and visual art. Is there a show or performance that you think people should know about? Write a Haiku with a link and shine a light on something you think is noteworthy too.

HAIKU REVIEW: Gale Antokal shrouds her imagery in a dreamlike state of partial recollection or feverish hypnogogy. Her world is a swirl of mist and sand and other atmospheric conditions that obscure sight. Lone figures make their way through this visually compromised environment. Built and natural structures loom out of the murk. Interiors are bathed in a preternatural gloom – except when, just like that, the fuzz clears, or more accurately coalesces into something homey but displaced, decontextualized. - Peter Frank
