So on a Sunday I had to myself I wandered over to the Zimmerli in New Brunswick. I knew it would be free cuz it was the first Sunday of the month (I went the first Sunday of May). So I went with the intention to go to the illustrator section where they have all kinds of new and old children’s book on display with all the original artwork and captions etc. But after I saw that I couldn’t help but walk downstairs and see what the buzz was about. I instantly felt like I recognized the look of this art and i realized she had shown in Vogue at some point recently- she did this fashion spread in winter. I liked it. this exhibit is really good. At first I felt a little overwhelmed with the start of getting into seeing into myself. this is a very modern social piece there are constantly updating twitter feeds status updates live on 10 iphones, its actually hard to pull yourself from reading all the flickers and you realize you just fell in to the art of this whole thing. Voice-mails are heard echoing off the walls and she shows her chops by acting out the lost vms left for strangers, its very emotive. Oh – and there is a lot of garbage(actual garbage like fruit labels) reused to make the art. Sometimes its linear qualities like in “what do you really want?” and “lost in my life” are very bubbly and moving and the shifting twisting colors are made of twit ties and its repetitive but not youthful more classical. I personally didn’t like the clothing she used at first but then I began to just get it. And I started to feel sorta silly for flipping through that Vogue fashion piece and feeling it was too stuffy and jam packed - I saw it at the end of the exhibit and realized that fashion could be part of this machine too. Anyway if your near New Brunswick NJ before July 8th check it out – just be sure to silence that iphone.
