Tomorrow the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston opens its latest blockbuster, "Damian Ortega: Do It Yourself." It is, in the words of our own Greg Cook, a "survey of work by a former political
cartoonist whose sculptures — like a tin space capsule and mobile
victory obelisk — often address political and social themes from his
native Mexico. He's best known for a sculpture exhibited at the 2003
Venice Biennale in which he dissected a Volkswagen Beetle and suspended
the parts in mid air — it resembles a 3-D assembly diagram or a special
effect frozen in mid explosion."
