When the CIA responds to a request for information by saying it can neither “confirm nor deny,” that’s called giving the Glomar response. The title stems from the CIA’s 1975 refusal to confirm or deny that it was using a ship called the Glomar Explorer to salvage a sunken Soviet submarine, and Redling Fine Art is hosting a three month series of “GloMar” exhibitions. Artists will explore obfuscation, opacity, neutrality and other such ideas, and the current instance is almost painfully neutral and obtuse. Jason Kraus has installed a very tall microscope built from indistinct design materials, while Nate Page has installed railings incomprehensibly made of brick and mortar.

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Dec. 4. Continues through Dec. 20, 2014
(Expired: 12/20/14)
