Ritual & Fashion

Some people are surprised to find that I love fashion, but who doesn’t love wearable art? I’m pretty sure it must have been the poet/translator Alessandra Bava who pointed me toward ‘Embodying Pasolini’ a performance co-created by Olivier Saillard and Tilda Swinton. To honour Pasolini and his long film career, Saillard and Swinton evoke the…

Enchanted: Fantasy Illustration

I ran up into the Berkshires to join the QoE Stephanie at the Norman Rockwell Museum, the unlikely setting for Enchanted: A History of Fantasy Illustration. It ended up being a lot more rainy then we expected, in fact bucketing down while we enjoyed a leisurely lunch until it stopped long enough for us to…

Niki de Saint Phalle @ MoMA PS1

More Hilma in Hudson

In the midst of all this uncertainty, we can be certain that art restores our souls [feel free to insert a less fraught word if you are uncomfortable with that one]. The Hilma af Klint exhibit in Hudson though modest is glorious. At the heart of it are her notebooks, meditating on the meaning and…
