MoMA’s Moment

There are two exhibitions at MoMA on my must-see list—Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait  “explores the prints, books, and creative process of the celebrated sculptor” and Items: Is Fashion Modern?  “explores the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today.” The Modern Matinees series of John Cassevetes’ films looks great, too. I may not wait for a rainy day to go.

  • All look fascinating. Jealous (in a not mean way).

  • I had a chance to see both of these exhibitions this past weekend and encourage my KIC friends to see them both if possible. I found the Louise Bourgeois exhibit, An Unfolding, personally inspiring since she worked in her 80s and 90s, doing some of her most important work as an artist in this last stretch of her life. The exhibit is wonderfully titled as the constant theme of her work revolves around relationships, most especially her relationship with her mother as well as her own children, using the fabrics of her wardrobe as her canvas for her prints.

    Fun, and thought provoking as well, the Items exhibit, leave one more keenly aware of the relavance of fashion in every aspect of our lives, past and future.
