KIM DINGLE

Kim Dingle made this statement about an earlier series of works, but it applies just as accurately to her recent installations featuring little girls in cribs, entitled Priss' Room, a new version of which is presented in "American Kaleidoscope." Droll and understated in her matter-of-fact statements, both in person and in print, she is provocative and confrontational in her art, softening her message with an endearing, ironic humor . . .

These girls are wildly aggressive. . . . they have no supervision and it isn't clear where they get their clothes or how they keep them so clean . . . but the dresses are very important.1
