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…

Sunday Matinee: The Fake (1953)

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…

#InternationalPodcastDay

Hey, it’s apparently International Podcast Day, so I remind you that I have TWO podcasts/internet radio shows appealing to a super-niche clientele of oddballs and hipsters. SURREAL NOIR via NoBounds Radio IS IT FUNNY? via Anchor and many platforms: new episode on Muriel Spark coming when I return to NY. Just a reminder, too, that…
