Met Museum Gets Major Gift Of Colonial South American Art

“It was either a dream come true or a prank: a man living in São Paulo with no previous relationship with Metropolitan Museum of Art cold-called the New York institution one day in 2017 and said he wanted to donate some of his paintings. And not just any paintings, but Spanish colonial works, a category that the Met publicly said it wanted to build up. It was not a prank, and in early March, the museum will unveil the gift from James Kung Wei Li — ten 17th- and 18th-century works from Peru, Ecu...

Stove Burners That Hang on the Wall When You Don't Need Them

  ? Ple nty of urban dwellers can, and do, live without ovens. I was one of them, and my friends in New York that did have ovens often used them to store sweaters. But few can live without a stovetop. The problem with stovetops in a space-tight apartment is that they take up so much dang space. Most city apartments have tiny kitchens and every square inch counts. So Adriano Design's Ordine, a stowable dual-burner induction hub system, looks like it would come in handy. A revolution that cha...

Salvaging Alan Jay Lerner’s Biggest Flop, A Musical ‘Lolita’

Think that’s a ghastly idea for a Broadway show? So did audiences in 1971, when try-out audiences in Philadelphia and Boston hated Lolita, My Love so much that the Broadway run was called off. But the producers of an upcoming staged reading in New York, with a revised book and a new framing device, aim to find out if audiences are finally ready for the show (with the changes, at least). – The New York Times

Photography and sex in Amos Badertscher’s Baltimore

The Baltimore photographer Amos Badertscher has been cataloguing queer lives in his city since the 1960s: male sex workers and their girlfriends, the 1990s Baltimore and Washington club culture, transgender people, crack and heroin addiction, and the impact of AIDS. His is the largest extant photographic record of the short lives of hustlers (male sex workers) that I know of. Though he could by no means be described as famous, Badertscher enjoyed a brief period of academic notice with the public...
