GeorgiaO'Keeffe

One day the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) was delivering new paintings to her dealer Edith Halpert, when Halpert exclaimed: “Another flower, Georgia?” To which O’Keeffe replied: “No, it’s my ass.” Perhaps O’Keeffe was prescient in anticipating the metaphysical and literal black hole of American society, as seen in Superbowl LIV (from the twerking halftime performers to the Snickers selfiesiders) and the Iowa Caucuses. But for O’Keeffe, the ‘black spot’, as she called it, was also womb-like — with life, not death, having the last word.

JessicaLange-HowardGreenbergGalleryAcclaimed actress Jessica Lange is also a visual artist, behind the camera. Her recent book Highway 61, filled with soul and melancholy, documents the fabled highway from Minnesota to Louisiana. Lange noted that “long stretches of 61 are empty, forlorn as if in mourning for what has gone missing — the hometowns, the neighborhoods, family farms, factories and mills.” Photographs from the project can be seen at Howard Greenberg Gallery, through January 18, 2020.

If post-modern art is about self-expression through performance art (selfies on instagram), then O’Keeffe can be seen as one of its progenitors.

MemorialDay19On this Memorial Day, we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, and also those architects of American foreign policy (from TR to Bolton) over the years who acted badly — using the US military in wrongheaded ways, and destroying countless lives — while bankrupting the nation and making the world more peace-less.

Enter Misfit Hive, a comedy troupe in Woodside that features (self-professed) mentally-ill comedians, performing and raising money for their like-minded neighbors.
