James Kelly Con­tem­po­rary, 1611 Paseo de Per­alta, 505-989-1601 Tom Miller’s first ex­hi­bi­tion with James Kelly, Set to Top­ple & Equiv­a­lent Ar­chi­tec­ture, con­tin­ues through May 21. Miller uses wall-build­ing ma­te­ri­als in sculp­tures in which he ex­plores the themes of in­clu­sion and ex­clu­sion im­plied by the build­ing of walls. Miller de­lib­er­ately in­vests each piece with in­sta­bil­ity dur­ing con­struc­tion, im­part­ing a sense of im­per­ma­nence and un­re­li­a­bil­ity. Ac­com­pa­ny­ing the sculp­tures are black-and-white bas-relief paint­ings of walls and wall-build­ing ma­te­ri­als that con­vey con­cepts seen in stark and con­tra­dic­tory terms, and gray paint­ings that re­veal more com­plex de­tails.
