I was thinking about Dolphy Hazel the other afternoon. This gentleman used to have me over for cheese and olives and we would talk about his sculptures and paintings. He made me a drum and asked me to promise and play when I'm feeling gloomy. Dolphy would tell me stories about ballerinas from his past and he guaranteed me we get back all that we put in in to our communities. Happy to see this beautiful portrait of him by Sasha Isreal.

I'm going though my backlog of people I've been following and I came across Mosse. Remember these? Richard Mosse had a brilliant idea when photographing Congo, infrared film. I've never been very interested in his work until these images came out. His journalism style felt standard and frankly, boring. These images changed how I feel about him.

Below is a film piece called Theater of War.

Theater of War from Richard Mosse on Vimeo.

Stunning. Read more about it here.

Wherever I was, I'm back, and I promise not to leave this time.

The David
Goldblatt exhibition currently on exhibit at The Jewish Museum is not getting enough exposure. The exhibition includes a decent time line for those who know little or nothing about South African history. This time line also coincides with Goldblatt's life, which I think is an interesting way to examine the stories he tells.

Retratos Pintados is an exhibition that closes at Yossi Milo September 18. I highly recommend you take a look at these hand painted photographs from Brazil. They are like nothing I have ever seen.

Photographs by Italian Francesco Giusti of purveyors of “le sape,” the fashion-obsessed La Societe des Ambianceurs et Personnes Elegantes, or the society of atmosphere setters and elegant people, something found among Congolese (both in France and Belgium and on both sides of the Congo River).

Mark your calendars everyone! Opening reception for Adam Schreiber, at Sasha Wolf Gallery is March 11, 6-8pm.
I saw Nosferatu the other night with live piano accompaniment. It was amazing. "F. W." Murnau, you rule.

It's been a while, but I'm back.

Have you seen the William Kentridge show yet at MoMA? This is the best exhibition I have (I'm going to be bold and say it) ever seen before. There is a wonderful opera piece that he created with a puppet theater of sorts, that has me going back every day at lunch. I've spent over 6 hours in the last two weeks revisiting the exhibition, and I'm not tired yet. Basically, what I'm saying to you is, go to MoMA and see what William Kentridge is all about.
