MidWeek Update: Beyonce & Vogue, Infinate Reflections w/The Museum of Modern Art

8. 15. 18 Hello everyone! It’s been quiet for the last few days, but I’ve been working furiously. As most of you know Beyonce and Jay-Z are touring around the world for their On the Run 2. Queen Bee is the cover girl for the September issue of Vogue magazine. Here is a behind the scenes video of her, her children with photographer 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell. He’s the first African-American photographer for Vogue. Making history indeed!         Another video I want to share with you courtesy of the Museum of Modern Art, titled Infinite reflections in a kinetic environment | HOW TO SEE “Hide & Seek” by Dream the Combine.       I hope you enjoyed these videos. Just wanted to do something a bit different today. Got one more thing…   Image source: Vogue.

Art Close-Up: Bjork Retrospective @ MoMA….What’s Really Going On?

March 30, 2015 A certain exhibition has critics in an uproar. That should be the name of this post. As some of you already know or don’t know, is that Icelandic pop icon Bjork has an exhibition that is now held at MoMA and will be there till early June of this year. I was surprised by this because, I mean I know who Bjork is. I’m familiar with her music, it just took me off guard, because I didn’t think she would even consider doing that type of thing. Too bad I can’t just pop up at MoMA to see the exhibit, but that’s alright. What’s really got my attention is the press the exhibition is getting. So far it’s generating pretty bad reviews. Art critics have pounced and they are holding no punches. Some reviews have been blunt to downright biting…. “Scant, cramped overview….jammed into a tacky little two-story pavilion….Bjork should have said no-not because her work isn’t museum-worthy, but because, as proved here, the Modern is not up to the task.” Roberta …
