Inspired by “The Kiss”

Inspired by Helloooo there, Monday. Nice to see you again.

Jack posted this a few weeks ago and while surfing around this weekend I found some more info on what it’s all about. Entitled “The Kiss” it is part of Tino Sehgal’s show, currently going on at the Guggenheim. Here’s a snippet from the NY Times review:

The sensuous pas de deux, titled “Kiss,” is in progress. As choreography it will hold no surprises for anyone familiar with contemporary dance. Taken as living sculpture, it has amusing moments: every so often, the performers strike erotic poses derived from Courbet, Rodin, Brancusi and Jeff Koons.

Inspired by the piece, Flavorwire took real couples to the numerous other museums of New York and photographed them in the heat of passion. Neat series; Jack and I plan on seeing the exhibit before it closes.

Falling Down the Guggenheim Museum Hall

Falling Down the Guggenheim Museum Hall
Oh, how I would love for this to exist!

Instead of contemplating the void of the Guggenheim Museum’s central space, JDS architects have proposed an experience which sees a trampoline net spiraling down the institution’s rotunda. This idea plays on Frank Lloyd Wright’s original scenography for the guggenheim in which he envisioned patrons visiting the exhibition from the top, downwards.

Museum Mile at Night

Museum Mile at Night
I took a nice, long, relaxing walk up Museum Mile the other night and took some neat pictures. I’m planning on doing this more, seeing as it’s on my way home and it’s such a beaut’ of an avenue. Above is (obviously) The Guggenheim. Below is The Metropolitan, The Frick (which technically isn’t part of Museum Mile, but I like to include it, anyway) and Cooper-Hewitt.
