With a cheeky nod to the volcanic eruptions in Iceland that have recently caused havoc for flights across Europe, the Reykjavik-based i8 gallery has issued a pr-savvy email stating that "the volcano show continues". And what exactly is this explosive event? "Lawrence Weiner's powerful and timely installation runs until the 8th of May. Mother Nature's exhibition end-date unknown," cryptically adds the gallery. And that's not the only "volcanic" art happening trumpeted this week. New York gallery Casey Kaplan has announced the publication of "Irrational Exuberance: Dancing on the Lip of the Volcano", an account of the 2008 Frieze Art Fair in London reflected in interviews by Tim Blanks.
