Finding The Art Of The ‘Real’ Moscow In Its Grim Suburbs

As Russia’s population faces a steep decline, Moscow is growing – but there’s no room in the city center. One curator: “We got used to viewing the suburbs as strange, remote areas we don’t want to visit. … But when you get out here, thanks to the artist, you see something you wouldn’t expect.” – Seattle Times (AP)

The era of Blade Runner is here, introducing Tesla's Cybertruck

The era of Blade Runner is here, introducing Tesla's Cybertruck AoiroStudioNov 26, 2019 Well it is November 2019 and carmakers from Tesla didn't hold back and introduced the Cybertruck. What was your first impressions? At first, I didn't like the design (still don't) but it definitely looks straight out of the 1982's Blade Runner which is pretty dope if you ask me. I think why the design is so brutalist and 'Cyberpunk' is to pierce a pretty well-established m...

The Philadelphia Orchestra Is Expanding Its Relationship With China Despite U.S.-China Tensions

There are many, many tensions between the two countries, but “the orchestra’s rock-star status in China offers it unique possibilities for bridge-building. Even youngsters are aware that, in 1973, it was the first Western orchestra to play in the People’s Republic of China. It has made 11 full visits since then, the most recent one in May.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer

MacArthur ‘Genius’ Lynda Barry Is Using Her Grant To Explore Brain Creativity

Documenting ‘Old L.A.’ As Developers Destroy More And More Craftsmen Houses For Apartment Buildings

It’s not that preservationists don’t understand the need for housing – that’s obvious in L.A., as in most cities and towns on the West Coast. “It seems to me that we should fight the argument that any talk of preservation is anti-housing. Because it doesn’t have to be. We can be for affordable housing but against the kind of utter freedom to tear down and put up just about anything at all anywhere in the name of it that on the block just east of mine has produced the kind of development that ma...

Progress in the Studio

The last time I checked in with you, clutter in the studio was seriously getting in the way of the creative process. After ignoring it for as long as I could, I decided to take concrete action. You might not even notice that a lot of “stuff” is gone, but the space is starting to feel more calm and inviting. The one thing that I’ve pledged to do is fill one trash bag a day and remove it, starting with three full bags yesterday. I can do this. It felt good to make a start.   Paintings my Friday f...

A Bookstore Whose Nooks And Crannies Are Practically The Key To Narnia

Well, no, no wardrobe or fur coats, but “9,000 square feet of nooks, alcoves, labyrinths, and warrens.” Its customers really love it, including the way thousands of books crammed together smell. And “the store is orderly if not antiseptic. Signs are hand-lettered; there are plenty of chairs for contemplation and ladders for climbing; and, whether by accident or puckish design, the crime section stops short at a fittingly dead end.” – The New York Times

Origami Makes A Small, Crinkly Return

American Theatre Is Traumatizing Its Own Practitioners

Lauren E. Turner, founder of the New Orleans theatre company No Dream Deferred, says that she was deeply lucky as a kid. “I was taught creating space was my duty. The idea of what was out there and available for performers of color was accessible, and I knew there was power in being able to tell a different story in different ways. Had I not had that experience, I would have just assumed theatre was strictly for white people.” – HowlRound

These Two Sisters Meld Inuit Throat Singing With Christmas Carols

Christian settlers and missionaries feared and banned throat singing, so the choice to make a Christmas album wasn’t exactly obvious, they say. “At the same time, they say some of their most cherished childhood memories include Christmas in the North, with the joy and hilarity associated with feasting, games and dancing.” Hence the meld. – CBC

The New Mr. Rogers Movie Isn’t Really About Mr. Rogers

Instead, it’s about the dark abyss of the adult soul. “Adulthood, for most of us, is about acquiring the skills to feel no feelings at all. Feelings are distracting, inefficient, unoptimizable, unprofessional — childlike. They interfere with our capacity to work. In fact, some of us use work, especially if we’re ‘good’ at it, to avoid our feelings.” But of course, Mr. Rogers can short-circuit all of that. – BuzzFeed

As Arya Learned In Game Of Thrones, Swordplay Is A Lot Like Choreography

And that’s true in weapons and swordfighting theatre classes as well. Ask one student-turned-devotee: “In theatrical swordfighting, you’re following choreography and working with your partner and trying to avoid contact unless it’s part of the routine. It’s just like dance. Except there are more pointy objects.” – San Diego Union-Tribune

Nottage: “Yes, I have to go sometimes to where my audience is, rather than being confined by the proscenium—which forces us to have a certain level of engagement, which means I have to sit very quietly in the dark while these people speak at me. There isn’t always a conversation.” – Vogue
