"Turn Off the Sun" at ASU Art Museum: A Hot Mess, Despite Some Cool Art

¿Como se dice "hot mess" en español?

It's about the only term I can think of to describe "Turn Off the Sun," an on-going exhibition of selections from the mighty Jumex Collection now showing at ASU Art Museum.

Initially, I was ecstatic when I heard that work from the Jumex Collection was to be shown locally. My enthusiasm was seriously curbed after seeing ASUAM's selection and treatment of the Jumex offerings - and I saw the show on two separate occasions to boot.
