Well, we're getting snowed in here in Bed-Stuy, and who knows if we'll ever make it out again, so in the meantime I thought I'd post a few pictures Kaisha Nicole sent from the snows at Melleray. I especially love the pictures of Felipe and Ringo, who are clearly lovers--frolicking in the first picture, and bashful in the next. See them here. ;) --MCB
This installation, Reception, was created by a woman who's only a few years older than me, Vadis Turner. The piece was almost too overwhelming to look at for long--I wanted to really get in there and look at it from all sides and examine all the materials, but of course, its flimsiness and fragility seem to be deliberate, to ward off inspection. Look-but-don't-touch, just like wommyn, eh? ;)
But nothing prepared me for The Dinner Party. I walked in and thought, "Oh dear, everyone's here," and choked up and tried not to cry. I love how the walls are reflective, so that you, too, can imagine yourself a guest at the feast. I spent a long time there.
