We met artist @helina.metaferia at the @fountainheadresidency. Through her work with archives, she turned her attention to those documents deemed “radical.” She says she was drawn to the vibrancy of Black Panther newspapers and found a way here to present that history without being too didactic. She took photos of her students at Michigan State to pair with the papers and explored how and if they have been influenced by movements of the past. We suggest zooming in on the eyelashes. . . #tbt #FountainHeadStudios
We are saddened by the loss of @christojeanneclaude, who we had the opportunity to interview in our 7th season. . . . STATEMENT ON CHRISTO May 31, 2020 Artist Christo Vladimirov Javacheff, known as Christo, passed away of natural causes today, on May 31, 2020, at his home in New York City. He was 84 years old. Statement from Christo's office: Christo lived his life to the fullest, not only dreaming up what seemed impossible but realizing it. Christo and Jeanne-Claude's artwork brought people together in shared experiences across the globe, and their work lives on in our hearts and memories. Christo and Jeanne-Claude have always made clear that their artworks in progress be continued after their deaths. Per Christo’s wishes, 'L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped' in Paris, France, is still on track for September 18 – October 3, 2021. Christo was born on June 13, 1935 in Gabrovo, Bulgaria. He left Bulgaria in 1957, first to Prague, Czechoslovakia, and then escaped to Vienna, Austria, then moved to Geneva, Switzerland. In 1958, Christo went to Paris, where he met Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon, not only his wife but life partner in the creation of monumental environmental works of art. Jeanne-Claude passed away on November 18, 2009. Christo lived in New York City for 56 years.
