I am loving these looks , especially the Visionary…I’m not actually going to fashion week, I’m not even going to be in NY yet for fashion week…but if I were I’d be wearing these things or something like it. These looks are all amazing even if you’re just strutting up and down your block (but not in a lady of the night kinda way). Shop the looks at Net-a-Porter
And what comes after NY fashion week? London fashion week. Check out these ‘Pack for fashion week’ goodies.
These photographs are by a New Zealand artist, Geoffrey Short. I think the simplicity in composure is a nice juxtopisition to the complexity of the meaning. The series explores ‘the relationship between terror and the sublime’
And MOMA has sanctioned a ‘Communist Tour’ of the Diego Rivera exhibition, according to ARTnews, which I think is super.
“Say the word “communism” and chances are most people will conjure images of the Soviet Union, the Cuban Missile Crisis, or Nikita Khrushchev banging his shoe at the United Nations. It is far less likely that anyone will recall the unassuming brick structure that stands on the corner of Forsyth and Broome Streets in downtown Manhattan, the site of some of the earliest socialist and communist meetings held in the United States (back in the 19th century). For artist Yevgeniy Fiks, however, this type of place has inspired works that examine the often overlooked history of communism in the West.
Born in Russia but based in New York since 1994, Fiks has painted portraits of current members of the Communist Party USA and photo- graphed New York locations connected to communist history. In March 2010, he led a group of visitors on a guerrilla performance tour of the Museum of Modern Art, in which he detailed the communist sympathies of artists in the permanent collection. (Interesting fact: Jackson Pollock went to communist meetings when he lived in Los Angeles in the ’20s.) Now, MoMA has invited Fiks to give an officially sanctioned “Communist Tour” of the museum on February 15, guiding visitors through the exhibition “Diego Rivera: Murals for the Museum of Modern Art.” read entire article
