Are you already planning your weekend even though it is Monday today? Not to worry, I have a suggestion for you! The Almine Rech Gallery in the Upper East Side is having an exhibition on Alexander Calder and Pablo Picasso. The exhibition lasts until Saturday, Dec. 17th.
It is a great exhibition to see because Calder and Picasso’s grandsons curated it. Also, it will be interesting to see which of their grandfather’s works they picked; and to see the story they are portraying together.
I hope to go to the gallery soon and I hope you all go to!
Everyone is guilty of taking selfies and even I admit to taking a few too — maybe more than a few. One day I was walking down the street and saw two posters I thought was very clever. The poster from the top is defying the selfie and the bottom one is an illustration of legendary designer, Coco Chanel.
I thought these two pieces of street art were ironic because they relate to the world people live in today. For instance, many celebrities to top fashion models take selfies to be relevant in the media. Frankly, the fashion industry has taken advantage of using selfies too. This way they can promote new trends and advertise for new designers.
The top poster is also just a great reminder to stop using technology or phones once in a while. I have noticed by just walking around New York City and everyone is constantly on their phones. Sadly, the selfies do live on, now, it is up to us to figure out when it is a great time to have a social media detox once in a while.
A famous all-American artist, Frank Stella is gracing his masterpieces in the Whitney Museum of American Art. This is a must-see exhibition because his works are minimalism and abstraction. They continue to inspire other artists and onlookers around the world. The popular exhibition opened Oct. 30, 2015 and lasts until Feb. 7, 2016.
This is next on my list of exhibitions to attend before winter break and I cannot wait to see what is in-store.
One of my favourite NYC street artists is Bradley Theodore and recently on instagram I saw Nicky Hilton post a photo of a new portrait of Karl Lagerfeld and his iconic cat, Choupette. The location of the street art is in the lower east side in Nolita. Keep your eyes open for this fabulous piece of art like the one I have taken a photo of that is on my website.
When I go back to the city, I will definitely take photos of the art work and more of the city! Cannot wait!
