Visited Dia Art Foundation in Beacon NY, with 8 of my favorite lady friends, on a crisp January afternoon.

Museo de Arte Moderno
10.08.13 | No Comments

Museo de Arte Moderno is situated in the middle of the large Chapultepec Park.  I wish all museums were surrounded by this many beautiful trees!  The museum is quite small but I saw two excellent exhibits  by female artists there.

The first was a show of paintings by Spanish-Mexican surrealist painter and anarchist Remedios Varo.  I immediately felt an affinity to her magic realist compositions.  Each image was composed perfectly, each representing it’s own dream world.

The second show I saw was the “Open Process” exhibit, a partial anthology of the work of Marianna Dellekamp (born in 1968).

She is a multidisciplinary artist who employs a variety of mediums in her exploration of the conception and use of images. The exhibition Open Process shows a review of the work of Marianna Dellekamp, an artist who has experienced in exploring disciplines in various media, design and image applications. Throughout her career she has used photography to other research tools, including accumulating, reorder and meanings to different materials. Her work is directed in part to the practice field, where she establishes dialogues and perspectives with the image: the actual image taken from everyday life, confronted image with text or appropriation of objects as an image. Another interesting aspect lies in the concept of accumulation, an important principle for the development of her projects. In the 1990s works emerge arising from facts related images, actions and objects that surround her life: from body fluids microscopic shots to scenes or elements from the environment and that have meaning in the analysis of the social fabric.

tourist in my own city

Sometimes you just have to take a day off and be a tourist in your own city.  We had Mr. Ties and Atom™  in town to play The Bunker and it was a gorgeous summer day, perfect for playing hooky.  The adventure started out at the Guggenheim Museum which has a James Turrell exhibit on view. I have been a Turrell fan for years but this installation was a bit of a disappointment for me. However this extensive  NY Times article on Turrell is a must read! The real treat of the day was the Kandinsky in Paris, 1934–1944 show that is up at the same time.  After we were refreshed by the gorgeous playful color of these two abstract art exhibits we decided to leisurely walk through Central Park. We had an early dinner at St. Anselm, a steakhouse that has many delicious delights for my pescatarian palette.  Our beautiful day ended with ice cream at Momofuku Milk Bar where we shared cereal milk ice cream and corn cookies.

Our super fun museum day!

Artist Kiki Smith and architect Deborah Gans talk about their stained glass window in the Museum at Eldridge Street. Their new design is the culminating piece of the 20-plus-year restoration of this national historic landmark, an 1887 synagogue. Smith and Gans’s design features a celestial motif – illuminated stars in a swirling pattern that evokes the Big Bang.

Tara Donovan at Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston
11.25.08 | 1 Comment

I went to Boston for the Brainwaves three day music festival.  On Saturday I took a break from the dark theater of warm sounds and went on an excursion to the newly built Institute of Contemporary Art.  The ICA is a gorgeous temple of light, a perfect place to look at art.  The architecture truly rivals the art.  Plus they have the best museum elevator I ever rode on.  I was delighted to see that they had a very extensive show of Tara Donovan’s sculptures.  Donovan makes beautiful futuristic structures out of very common materials.  I was only able to take a few photos in the museum.

Be sure to look at the rest of her work on the Ace Gallery site.

I really wish I had been able to see Olafur Eliasson Take your time @ SFMOMA in San Francisco. He is one of my absolute favorite artists and I can’t wait to see his show in NY.

Like abstract painting, Mr. Eliasson’s art can be slow to reveal itself. In an installation called “Beauty” a rainbow emerges from a curtain of mist and vanishes. Maybe you see it; maybe you don’t. The illumination in an empty “white” room at P.S. 1 changes color all but imperceptibly as you watch: from white, to faint gray, to pale pollen beige, to lavender, one dissolving into the next like shifts in weather or the readings of a mood ring.
