Culture Shock

I read, cooked, and watched a lot these past few months, but I’ve been missing a different type of cultural experience. Helmut Lang has an exhibition of his work at MOCA Westport and there is a new documentary on the photographer Helmut Newton — I cast for both Helmuts — wonderful, yet very different experiences. Marilyn Chase, author of the newly released Everything She Touched: The Life of Ruth Asawa did a talk about the artist with the Black Mountain College Museum Arts Center. And, on 8/13 you can buy Ruth Asawa postage stamps. In 1971, conceptual artist Bernadette Mayer embarked on an experiment where for one month she shot a roll of 35mm film each day and kept a journal. Memory is a compilation of these photographs.  We are deep into a house renovation and Home Stories: 100 Years, 20 Visionary Interiors is timely.

  • I too have been missing and am in need of culture fix. The documentary on Helmut Newton is now on my “to do” list too. Will also be reading “Everything She Touched”.

  • I wasn’t blown away by the Helmut Newton documentary but I did come away with a better appreciation for his photographs.
