Touching a Pierced Twist of Fabric (60/40 Polyester/Cotton Blend), 2013
Wow. Looks like a Shay Arick piece to me. In a good way.
Taking in the evening sun
thru Sept 1:
“Scrim veil—Black rectangle—Natural light (1977)”
Whitney Museum, 945 Madison Ave., NYC (at 75th St.)
$20 (admission is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays, 6–9 pm)
free admission for members and visitors ages 18 and under
a large-scale installation that uniquely engages the Whitney’s iconic Breuer building and the natural light that emanates from the large window in the fourth floor gallery space. Part of the Whitney’s collection, the work was made specifically for the Museum’s fourth floor. It has not been exhibited since its 1977 debut, a pivotal moment that would set the course for Irwin’s subsequent artistic practice.
New York. Go see this.
My uncles Hawaiian shirt. Party time!
“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”
also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope
the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him
but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high
and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair
what a badass
It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job
He was like the Renaissance Robert Pattinson
