thank you @sirsargent for the photo 📸🧸

#tbt to last week in Miami. Did you happen to see the work of @bmwgroupculture artist @jamal.cyrus ? He was in conversation with @andrasszanto in regards to his on-going work and travels. The artist was inspired to travel to Elmina Castle 🏰 in Ghana, the point from where most slaves in West Africa were forced to leave the continent, amongst other places. I went to the castle in 2009 through @nyuart and will never forget that visit or the weighted history. BMW Arts was able to support and facilitate Cyrus’ journey and research-the work was on view @artbasel

Can someone please buy me a @marguerite_humeau sculpture for the holidays? 🎄🤶🏼 Her show @newmuseum is so dynamic and the sculptures transform completely depending on which angle they are viewed from. “Birth Canal” is a journey into the artist’s psyche and closes January 6th, 2019. #mustsee .

What is it like to pass through a border-crossing in Israel? While we may not truly know until we try, artist @zac_hacmon intends to give people a brief taste of the experience through his work. On view as part of “Empathy” @smackmellon constructed “Gateway” a sculpture that is modeled after a check-point in Kalandia, between Northern Jerusalem and the West Bank. 🇮🇱 The group show is on view until December 30th. *edited

Are you a fan of the Velvets? This is a question Christian Fevret, who affectionately refers to the rock-n-roll band that influenced so many in this abbreviated version, may ask. Well, you don’t have to answer but you can read my interview with the Paris-based Fevret who organized the @velvetundergroundexperiencenyc currently on view at a pop-up venue on Broadway in Soho. #linkinbio @grandlifeny 🎸🎸

“For me, coming out of skateboard culture, I think of the whole year [of shows that I organize], as a mixtape. You have to find all the right songs and put them in the right order. When looking at the program, I try to show as many types of art as possible.” Leo Fitzpatrick ~ @lousyleo spoke to me for @grandlifeny and it was such a great conversation about curating @marlboroughcontemporary acting and skateboarding. ✍🏼🏄🏻‍♂️ #linkinbio 📸 by @chris_shonting

Great story & reportage by @sarahecascone in @artnet about a newly discovered painting identified as a young Jesus in Israel. I’m sure it’s been cleaned and restored but for something made approximately 1,500 years ago....the line quality looks oddly fresh!

Fabulous day @momaps1 visiting and participating in Bruce Nauman: Disappearing Acts with @leydenlewisdesignstudio The exhibition explores Nauman’s process from the 1960s through today. Some of the work including “Double Steel Cage” (first photo) and “Body Pressure” (last two photos) both from 1974, require visitor engagement. Entering the narrow passageway of the cage tested my appreciation for small –if airy– spaces. The show reveals how Nauman has viewed and used his body over the years as both a canvas and a sculptural maquette.
