Museums. Art. History. Art History. Education. Museology. Historiography. Logophilia. Punnery. I often post as I explore museum exhibits. I am a museum nerd.
Really cool work with cement bleeding through the canvas by Naomy Safran-Hon in #GoBrooklyn
#GoBrooklyn at @BrooklynMuseum looks great! The work integrates surprisingly well for community curation.
Two of the #ElAnatsui "Waste Paper Bags" made from used aluminum newspaper printing plates.
I come to @brooklynmuseum to learn about booze!
Very cool squishy Marela Zacharias art just chillin' up in the brickwork at @brooklynmuseum.
@shell7 #GoBrooklyn looks fantastic! These iPads are mixed up though. Way back when, I tweeted something similar...
Raw/Cooked artist Duron Jackson interviewed (at this event http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/calendar/event/6012)
Checking out "Life, Death, & Transformation in the Americas" @brooklynmuseum. Love this Heiltsuk skull in ladle!
These little guys have so much personality for being made so simply! #ElAnatsui "Seers" (1993)
I walked in, saw these, & felt my whole body go, "Whoa." Right after, a guy walked & said it. Weird. #ElAnatsui
The fabric-like folds in this "Black Block" & the red one next to it are just... Whoa. #ElAnatsui @brooklynmuseum
I'd never seen these big "Waste Paper Bags" (2004-10) which are made from discarded printing plates. #ElAnatsui
"I don't believe in artworks being things that are fixed. You know, the artist is not a dictator." - #ElAnatsui
Gorgeous undated "Currents" by #ElAnatsui in chainsaw-incised wood. Different from the foil, but still iterative.
"The title of this work, Gli, can mean 'wall,' 'disrupt,' or 'story' in the Ewe language." - @brooklynmuseum label
The tin can lids used to make #ElAnatsui's "Drainpipe" @brooklynmuseum looked like Hannukah gelt to me at first.
These dudes are about to get medieval on this Spanish lady at @metmuseum.
Hate that your helmet hides your luscious locks? Do you want your opponent to see your elegant ears? Well now...
My favorite of the little inlaid-stone panels on @metmuseum's Italian cabinet. This little guy's like, "What fire?"
Got so close to this 1615-23 Italian cabinet, I set off the alarum. Extraordinary inlaid stone.
