The latest Meow Wolf installation continues the freewheeling style this collective is known for since their founding in 2008. The visions of each member often coalesce into a unified gestalt, as in the epic pirate vessel starship amalgam The Due Return in 2011, yet this time around, the emphasis is on individual works. Tucked in a back corner the high energy and disparate installation pumps up the volume, and one can’t help but wonder how the fair might benefit by putting them front and center. Once again they demonstrate how inspired collaborative improvisation often trumps expensive materials and academic techniques.
