Best Disappearing Act 

Liu Bolin, Hiding in the City at Boise Art Museum

Staff Pick

The hottest ticket in Boise on a particularly cold January night wasn't a concert or movie. It was a sold-out appearance at Boise Art Museum by Chinese artist Liu Bolin. "Appearance" was the operative word, considering Bolin's international fame as "the invisible man." The artist camouflages himself with paint, deliberately disappearing into his photos of iconic images. The Boise Art Museum flew Bolin from his home in Beijing, China to Idaho for his visit and although it was all-too-brief, the exhibition of his work, Liu Bolin: Hiding in the City, was on display at BAM for a full four months.
