December 2013

It's hard to believe it is December already. Today turned blustery and cold in Berlin -- perfect timing for the opening of Miami Basel --- and I wish all the party goers, collectors and art lovers the best of fun. It's one of hte greatest art events in the world -- if not to peruse through the countless art fairs, but to attend all the amazing parties. Oh well.

That said, I love being here in Berlin at this time of year. There is no place like Christmas in Germany. I've already ventured into at least three different Weinachtsmarkt and sipped on Gluhwein many times. It's absolutely festive and merry. I know someone who would completely argue otherwise...but me, Bella and Sofia are loving it. The lights are up and there is that omnipotent aroma of fried sugar in the air...not that I like that smell...but still, it makes the atmosphere.

I'm excited to be involved in curating this charming and rather cool shop window on Bergstrasse where the site specific installation of Jaanika Peerna from NYC is now is open for viewing. I'm having a reception open to the public on Friday the 13th of December where Jaanika will be talking briefly about the work. See the Manalo Projects link to read a bit more about it.

On my own art note, Martina Nitsche and I decided to do a pop up exhibit at the Rowland Kutschera Gallery where we have a 'special connection' with the owner. It's a goregous space and I'm thrilled to hang work from last year along with work that is new and will also be displayed in Orlando in March. 

Here is one work...part of my Love series:

"Love/Mahal/Liebe Two", Handsewn stitching, grahpite and photo on glossy paper. 12" x 12", 2013
