“‘Tradition, a Curse’: My First 25 Years of Reporting on Spanish Art

My Village Voice essay on punk in Andalusia was the launching point of my writing career in Spain and my essay “‘Tradition, a Curse’: My First 25 years of Cultural Reporting on Spain.”

The essay is in the new book Contemporary Transatlantic Dialogues: Art History, Criticism, and Exhibition Practices in Spain and the United States, edited by Robert S. Lubar and María Dolores Jiménez-Blanco.

The book gathers the dialogues and lectures from Contemporary Transatlantic Dialogues, a symposium organized by the Center for Spain in America and hosted by the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University in April 2011. Focusing on key issues and experiences that have shaped the cultural dialogue between the two countries over the past 50 years, the digitally published volume features essays by authors including Robert Storr, Richard Armstrong, Brian Wallis, Rafael Doctor, Miriam Basilio, and Estrella de Diego.

Edgy Quilt-Inspired Fashion Line Dedicated to Breastfeeding Mom

Whether in her epic fabric structures–a sampling of which is currently at Anton Kern–or her fierce costumes for dance, her performative collaborations with My Barbarian, and her jumpsuits for Red Hot Chili Pepper Flea, Lara Schnitger has channeled all manner of textile arts. The Dutch, Los Angeles-based artist excavates text and image by removing color from dyed fabric, creating a stenciled effect that conveys her all-caps urgency. 

Now Schnitger is bringing her post-patchwork esthetic to a new couture line, Sister of Arp, which launches in a runway show at Kern on February 8. The collection, called Never Alone, is dedicated to the working (and breastfeeding) mom.

A Quilted Lament to Loved and Lost MoMA

Amy Wilson’s Soft MoMA is a quilted, free-hanging lament to the loved and lost intimate museum experience the artist enjoyed as a child. Step inside its enveloping folds, where, via two quilted alter egos, Wilson reflects on her discomfort in a shiny new museum world where everyone else seems to be smiling. The quilt made its debut at BravinLee the day after MoMA announced plans to raze the American Folk Art Museum building to create a giant glass lobby. (The show is up through tomorrow.)
