I scooped this sweater at one of my favorite vintage outposts in the Village, instantly recognizing the image from Art History. However, try as a might, I cannot identify this painting! I've scoured the internet and sourcebooks and cannot uncover the title or artist of this work.
It's overdue, but here's my Halloween costume: Picasso'sGirl Before a Mirror!
For the Annual Members Party at the New Museum, two friends and I decided to emulate Picasso's paintings of women. Meri was Dora Maar, Kathy was Woman with a Book, and I was the stunning masterpiece pictured above (which hangs at the Museum of Modern Art).
We had a fantastic evening challenging partygoers to guess who we were, and a few actually recognized my painting!
Thanks to Kathy for her help with painting and for my friends for being great sports.
Edward the bunny has been dressed up in many a costume, but this may be my favorite so far. Inspired by Frida Kahlo's Self Portrait Dedicated to Dr. Eloesser from 1940 (and her signature look in general), Mr. Beast donned a flower crown and unibrow to complete the look.
Another one from MASS MoCA: Lee Boroson's Plastic Fantastic.
Meant to evoke organic forms, the shapes in this installation are fabricated out of man-made materials, thereby collapsing the notion of a natural environment. It reminded me of Tomas Saraceno's installation on the roof of the Met a few years ago, but it gave me a greater urger to hug the walls.
