Ai Weiwei: According To What?

DSC_0008

There are times when our photographs can’t even begin to sum up the magnitude of an art show.  Never was this more so than for the Ai Weiwei exhibition opening today at the Brooklyn Museum.

Ai Weiwei is one of China’s most provocative conceptual artists.  A sculptor, photographer and filmmaker, he is also an activist, meaning that he isn’t even able to visit the Brooklyn Museum exhibition as the Chinese government are currently holding his passport from him (he was imprisoned for a period in 2011 for his work).

katemoss

Anyone who remembers the 90s, remembers that Birkenstocks were the cool footwear of choice. There’s been a lot of time since then and New Yorkers, thanks in no small part to Carrie Bradshaw, spent most of the last decade prancing around the streets in the highest shoes we could find.

Sigma Polke Rebels At MoMA

DSC_9532

The first large-scale US retrospective of legendary German artist Sigmar Polke (1941-2010) opens this weekend at MoMA.  Sigmar Polke is one considered to be one of the most experimental artists of the 20th century and the works on view demonstrate this perfectly.  From his enormous paintings on materials as flimsy as bubble wrap or printed textiles, there is not one medium that defines his almost 50 year-long career.

The Rebirth Of Marc by Marc Jacobs

DSC_9631Last night we visited the Soho showroom of Marc by Marc Jacobs to view the Fall 2014 collection. Under the leadership of British design stars Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier, the new collection feels like a throw back to the spirit of the brand when it first exploded on to the New York fashion scene.  Best of all the collection feels like a total departure from the vintage inspired cute designs of the past few seasons, with this collection feeling firmly club kid inspired.
