Sorry for the silence but, honestly folks, not much is going on this time of year. In fact, I am afraid that Objects Not Paintings is going to take a break in the month of August. This author is planning on getting married and doing some traveling but do not despair, ONP will be back in September.
In the meantime, I have caught wind of two fall exhibitions that I am looking forward to:
The Artistic Furniture of Charles Rohlfs, October 19, 2010-January 23, 2011, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Which will feature about about 50 pieces of furniture and objects produced by the workshop of Charles Rohlfs (1853-1936) in Buffalo, New York. This exhibition is coming our way from the Milwaukee Art Museum.
Notorious and Notable: Fashionable Women of the Twentieth Century, September 14, 2010 – January 3, 2011, at the Museum of the City of New York. I do not know much about this exhibition, other than that it has some great sponsers, Dior and LVMH, and is organized jointly by the Museum and the National Jewelry Institute. I assume it will have lots of jewelry and clothes. In one word: FABULOUS!
And if you are planning a trip to Turkey any time soon (I know I am), visit the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art to see an exhibition celebrating Hussein Chalayan’s ten years in fashion.
Finally, to fill the time that you would normally use to read this blog, I highly reccomend checking out the New York Time’s new blog called Living Rooms. It is a great blog on the history of domesticity and several weeks ago it featured a wonderful post on Russel Wright (Easier Living by Design, July 23, 2010).
