Radical Spirits: Hilma’s Ghost

As I found myself in Connecticut this weekend, I stopped off at the Hill-Stead Museum to visit the exhibit Radical Spirits: Tarot, Automatism, and Feminist Histories put together by the collective Hilma’s Ghost (named of course for Hilma af Klint): Hilma’s Ghost, named after af Klint, is a feminist artist collective consisting of Brooklyn-based artists and…

Frida @ the Broad Art Museum

On a short break (thanks Louise) I hied myself over to MSU to see the (relatively new) Broad Art Museum as it was featuring an exhibit on Frida Kahlo. The exhibit included photos and letters, mostly between Frida and her family, although with some of her doctors, too. It was an intimate sort of set…

Visiting Leornora’s House

Catching up on my viewing as it seems to be one of the few things my exhausted brains can comprehend. Art — especially art by my trimulierate Carrington, Varo & Fini — is sustaining me when I am running on fumes and finally admitting to that fact. I am doing better about not taking on…

Joik, Gloria’s Call & Leonora’s Journey

I am still catching up on things amidst a mad week (hopefully the last for a while) but I wanted to be sure to post this video from the Biennale mostly so I can find it easily to watch again. It features Sámi noadi Ánde Somby — I just love his modern four winds hat…

Surrealism, Tarot & Leonora

I am woefully behind on everything and making so little progress. What better time to watch some of the videos from the Biennale! This one of course I was very much anticipating. I know I have shared talks with Susan Aberth and Tere Arcq many times and they have spoken about Leonora and YET, there…

Sunday Matinee: The Fake (1953)

Another early morning movie with a noir tinge and an art scam — I’m staying on brand for once! I watched another neo-noir last night but am mulling over whether I want to write about it. Yes, two films in a 24-hour period. Who am I? The key is working around dad’s schedule (also ear…

Surrealism Beyond Borders

Somehow I managed not to post about the fantastic exhibit at the Met, Surrealism Beyond Borders, even though now I have seen it twice and could go back again in a heart beat. I did upload some two or three hundred photos to FB so if you’re over there, you probably saw it. It’s so…

A Fire Ritual for the Heart @ Library

The Claverack Library here in the Hudson Valley (NY) is hosting an exhibition Creativity Amid Chaos. My video ‘A Fire Ritual for the Heart’ will be featured in the Marilyn and Bob Laurie Gallery. There is an opening today from 5-7pm — and it’s Food Truck Day, too! Stop by the library to see all…
