Women's March in NYC 2018

I thought I'd share some of my photos from the Women's March in New York City. The official count is that there were 120,000 200,000 marchers here. I wouldn't be surprised if it were actually more.

I didn't take any photos of the Trump Tower because eww. In the last photo, the two little girls in the window waved at us and we waved at them, exciting them very much and so there was lots of waving back and forth, and when the drummers (the crew in blue in one of the photos above) were having at it, you could see them sort of dancing in the window. I'd say they're off to a good start in learning they have power!

Theda Tammas's "Dissected Soul" at Split Screen

Dissected Soul by Theda Tammas is now open at Split Screen. In this intriguing work, bodies are fractured, contorted, ripped through with holes. A red thread connects many of them, and much of the thread bears loops of barbed wire. The centerpiece is a heart shattering into small pieces which fly into the air. And all of it lies in a shallow lake that reflects a dramatically chiaroscuro sky.

Thinking of her installation, Theda quotes a poem by Fernando Pessoa:
I don’t know how many souls I have, I’ve changed at every moment. I always feel like a stranger. I’ve never seen or found myself.
Dissected Soul is at Split Screen's temporary spaee at LEA15 through December: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA15/59/190/43

Closing of Berg by Nordan Art

Kate Bergdorf has announced here that her exhibit space, Berg by Nordan Art, will close at the end of the year.  It has consistently presented excellent art, including large installations -- one of the few places for large builds remaining.  It will be sorely missed!
