The Björk exhibit is a collection of her multifaceted work as a composer, musician, and singer. The exhibition draws from more than 20 years of the artist’s daring and innovative projects and her eight full-length albums to chronicle her career through sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, and costumes.
Next we made our way down to Big Sur stopping in Santa Cruz along the way. Santa Cruz is one of the sweetest little beach towns I have ever been to. The people were lovely, laid back and obviously understand the importance of enjoying all life has to offer.
After our impromptu stop, we made it to Big Sur. Over 1200 photos later, I understand completely why Henry Miller made this his home. Words cannot describe the magnificent energy Big Sur encompasses. This will not be my only trip to Big Sur. Amiram and I have already decided to go back and spend more time there, stopping by some of the wineries inland.
A couple weeks ago Amiram and I decided to start our 2015 discovering new things. We headed out to the West Coast to see all the things that, I’ve decided, not enough people talk about. As someone who has traveled all the way around the world, taking flights for 24 hours, to see the sun rise off the shore of Thailand, California has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
Ai Weiwei is one of China’s most prolific and provocative contemporary artists.These works spotlight issues of freedom of expression, as well as individual and human rights both in China and globally. Many use minimal forms and methods, while others manipulate traditional furniture, ancient pottery, and daily objects in ways that question cultural values and challenge political authority. Ai is best known for projects such as his collaboration with Herzog & de Meuron on the 2008 Beijing Olympic National Stadium, as well as his embrace of the Internet and social media as a platform for his activism. Despite his arrest and eighty-one-day detention in 2011, Ai has continued to create art that transcends dualities between East and West.
