Be Inspired: The Artist Is Present

a99

Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again.

At her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, where she shared a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing and this is what happened.

This is her ex-husband and first love… she used to peform with him, soulmate..twin flame kind of bond. They hadn’t spoken for years before this and no one told her that he would be coming into the exhibit or sitting with her.Via zengarage.

Shoe Obsession Exhibition

A new exhibition at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology Museum is all about fabulous footwear.

Shoes make for feel-good shopping. You’re never too fat for footwear, never too washed out… Small wonder we’re obsessed with what’s on our feet. A new exhibition at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology focuses on just that. Carrie Bradshaw et al paved the way for the rest of us shoe obsessives, making household names of Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo. How better to catalogue our compulsive streak than with 150 examples of the hottest, highest and most heavenly heels?

Shoe Obsession runs 8 February13 April, The Museum at FIT (fitnyc.edu). See more shoe images below.

I don’t know how you can walk in some of those shoes but the Nicholas Kirkwood and the Invisible shoes by Andreia Chaves are by far my favorites.
