African Textiles in NYC

Two shows of African textiles are up in NYC: One at the Met and one at NYU's Grey Gallery. As I uderstand it both will be presenting current textile and art work with historic textiles. Heaven.

Knitting for Good

Knitting for Good

Betsy Greer's Knitting for Good is my new favorite book. Will write a review as soon as I can. But don't wait, get it now!

Sarah Palin donations to Planned Parenthood

Sarah Palin donations to Planned Parenthood

The best culture jamming I've heard in a while: give ten bucks to Planned Parenthood in honor of Sarah Palin. They will send her a thank you card for it! Donate here and send the card to McCain for President, 1235 S. Clark Street, 1st Floor, Arlington , VA 22202. Hats off to the person who thought this up.

Save Bitch!

Save Bitch!

Bitch Magazine is barely hanging on. Fortunately, recent donations equaled $40K (enough to produce the December issue), but they still need help to stay afloat in the long-term. This amazing, independent magazine has, for 13 years, been a funky, unique voice for DIY and the arts.

Watch the live plea for donations or go to their site for more details.

Fab Prefabs at MoMA

Fab Prefabs at MoMA

You have one more month to catch the amazing exhibit "Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling" at the MoMA. I live in a 1949 prefabricated steel Lustron home, so seeing my same model assembled inside the museum was a must. This show is relevant to everyone, though, in the most intimate way. Through six full-size homes, architectural models, drawings, and films, the curators demonstrate how, since the 1830s, factory-built homes have been shaping our future.

Art Subscriptions

Art Subscriptions

Art collecting feels out of reach for most of the folks I know (artist themselves who don't have a lot of extra cash to play with) but there are a couple of exciting Bay Area efforts that make art objects accessible through the production of multiples. The Thing and The Present Group both work with individual artists to create editions available quarterly to subscribers. The Present Group projects range from books and prints to DVD's and sculptural objects made in limited editions. The Thing subscription is always some kind of manufactured everyday object incorporating text. Both offer a chance to support art production in a way that is both adventurous and affordable.

I have just found out about Ruth Laskey's work. Leslie knew how much I would love rigorous hand weaving with fierce geometry or oil paint. I can't make direct links, but click on Twill and Tapestry and find my mind blown. Ruth is having a show in Vienna at Songsong.
