10 Art Shows to See in New York This June
This month: Highlights from El Museo del Barrio’s collection, artworks on book covers, Chinese bird-and-flower paintings, and more.
Just want to say this piece is great. Informative, accessible, and really using the visuals to meets the paintings in an articulate, beautiful way. Excellent work.
Now THIS is a good read.
lovely. thank you.
One show I really regret not getting to ..Josephine on the West Coast. Love your write up .Thank you!
I feel inspired by this story. And consoled by the message about pressing on when one’s efforts are rebuked. Even tho I will miss the actual show at the Guggenheim, this was profoundly rewarding, to see the images through this online venue. Life is good, all the time! And I loved the gentle heckling by museum goers, challenging the “art institution world” about allowing Hilma’s work to COLLECT DUST FOR DECADES! Kind of a turn of the last century MeToo movement. The writer/cartoonist pointed so well to the nascent Spiritualist Movement, at the time when new scientific information was being revealed eg the invention of xrays. Press on, everyone! Channel your inner Hilma!!!
