NEW YORK—The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute presents Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between, from May 4 to September 4, 2017 at the The Met Fifth Avenue, Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Exhibition Hall, Floor 2.
A thematic exhibition, rather than a traditional retrospective, this is The Costume Institute’s first monographic show on a living designer since the Yves Saint Laurent exhibition in 1983.
A publication, Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between, authored by Andrew Bolton with creative direction and design by Fabien Baron and Yuki Iwashiro of Baron & Baron, accompanies the exhibition.
It features new photography by Nicholas Alan Cope, Inez and Vinoodh, Katerina Jebb, Kazumi Kurigami, Ari Marcopoulos, Craig McDean, Brigitte Niedermair, Paolo Roversi, and Collier Schorr.
A rare interview with Rei Kawakubo and a chronology of her career, amplified with quotes from the designer, provide additional insight into her aesthetic and career.
Published by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and distributed by Yale University Press, the 248-page hardcover book has 205 color illustrations and comes in a slipcase with a pullout poster of a Paolo Roversi photograph that was shot for the publication. It retails for $50.
I grew up in the ’70s when Manila was so much fun and no traffic.
No traffic and no Internet. Just radio, TV and magazines (think TV Times and the occasional Tiger Beat).
Hotdog was an emerging band that started the iconic music genre Manila Sound. Their songs included “Manila, Manila,” “Ikaw ang Miss Universe ng Buhay,” “Annie Batungbakal” and “Bongga Ka ‘Day.”
Garcia will bring back all your favorite OPM songs, but this time, on canvas using acrylic and oil paints. He has had no formal education or training for the arts.
In the show, he will introduce an art phenomenon called Outsider Art which he says is “naive, self-taught art from simple inspired people, aimed at your heart, not your wallet.”
Garcia’s paintings will be affordable.
He wants to champion the Outsider Art genre, which is a Matisse-like expressionism movement.
“There are no rules here, my art unchains myself. I am not who will be confined in a box. I have also invited fellow outsider artists to motivate them into working on their own exhibit,” he says.
Words commonly associated with Outsider Art are “naïve”, “pure”, “raw”, “visionary” and “fanatic, untouched by the pettiness of everyday life and mainstream culture.” It unveils the unadulterated act of creation, outside of trends and the desire for commercial success. It can convey the power of the unbridled imagination to create order and beauty from basically nothing.
Through his paintings, expect to see a lot of Garcia’s wit, sensuality and other emotions.
The paintings will be named after Hotdog songs so expect titles like “Behhh Buti Nga,” “Pers Lab” and “Miss Universe ng Buhay ko.” There is even a painting called “Careful,” which is a tribute of sorts to former gossip show host Inday Badiday.
In 2008, stockbroker, investment advisor and financier Bernie Madoff made headlines around the world when he was arrested for committing one of the largest financial frauds in U.S. history.
Now HBO’s original film, The Wizard of Lies, examines Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme—his deception, lies and cover-up.
Oscar® winner Robert De Niro comes to HBO for the first time in the role of Bernie Madoff.
Also on HBO for the first time, Golden Globe winner Michelle Pfeiffer stars as Ruth Madoff, Bernie’s longtime spouse and unwitting partner during the events that would lead to financial ruin for countless people and institutions, as well their family’s destruction.
The Wizard of Lies is directed by Barry Levinson from a script by Sam Levinson and John Burnham Schwartz and Samuel Baum, based on Diana B. Henriques’ 2011 New York Times bestselling book The Wizard of Lies: Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust, which featured unprecedented access and more than 100 interviews, including Madoff’s first interviews for publication since his arrest. Truth and Consequences by Laurie Sandell is additional source material.
The film also stars Alessandro Nivola as Mark Madoff, Bernie and Ruth’s oldest son, and Nathan Darrow as Andrew Madoff, their youngest son—both of whom worked with their father at his investment firm.
Other cast members include Kristen Connolly as Stephanie Madoff, Mark’s wife; Lily Rabe as Catherine Hooper, Andrew’s fiancée; and Hank Azaria as Frank DiPascali, Bernie’s right-hand man in the Ponzi scheme.
Diana B. Henriques, the first writer to visit Madoff in prison, plays herself.
The Wizard of Lies debuts May 21, Sunday at 8 AM (Manila time) with a same day primetime encore at 9 PM.
Friday, May 26 at 11:20 PM
Tuesday, May 30 8:25 AM
