It is a warm and beautiful Easter Sunday here in New York and I spent
the morning at the Metropolitan Museum at the exhibition of Agnolo
Bronzino's fascinating Renaissance drawings.
Now, I am at Newark
Liberty Airport waiting for my flight to Toronto to board.
I spent a good part of the day at the Museum of Modern Art. The
permanent collection alone is a reason to go there as frequently as
possible, but at the moment they are also presenting a few extraordinary
special exhibitions: all of the museum's Water Lillies by Claude
Monet in one room; a retrospective of William Kentridge's work; and—for
me the most fascinating of all—the first American retrospective of the
performance artist Marina Abramović, The Artist Is Present. This
exhibit ncludes a new work with Abramović herself performing almost
every single day from March 14 until the end of May for entire duration
of the museum's opening hours. I believe there is a live video-stream on
the MOMA's website www.moma.org
to give you an idea. I was endlessly fascinated.
