Installation artist Andy Diaz Hope loves drugs. Also, he hates drugs. Either way, he thinks they're pretty. Doesn't matter what kind: Herbs, powders, scrips, needles, and pills all find their way into his art. Working with Laurel Roth, Diaz Hope contriubutes a mixed media re-do of a chandelier to the collection of Current Exhibitions. The light fixture's crystals have been replaced by syringes and ropes of shiny capsules, and its metal parts have been aggressively chromed; it glitters. Other artists represented include Timothy Cummings and HalfLifers (Anthony Discenza and Torsten Z. Burns). We like them all, especially Sandow Birk's "Ten Leading Causes of Death in America" series of etchings.
