“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, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”

this always fucks me up

This is Anna “Vesse” Dahl and she is super duper adorable - I mean, just look at her. She’s a self-educated Norwegian adventurer and made contributions to nuclear physics. Here’s her Smithsonian Institute Profile.
(But damn, those boots.)

Slendid sculptures “Shadow Circus” by Kirsten Stingle

“Storytelling connects us to one another and explains who we are. In an age in which the individual is often alienated, my work attempts to cut through the isolation by presenting common threads of the human experience. Early in my career, a fine arts degree in theater refined my understanding of imagery and taught me to use gestures as powerful expressive tools. However, it is through figurative ceramics that I am able to fully realize my narrative impulse.” -Kirsten Stingle

“While each piece is instantly approachable, closer inspection reveals a world in which the story and inner psyche of the character slowly emerges. The ultimate goal of my work is to create honest depictions of the human quest toward self-revelation and a contemporary identity. Just as we look to our past as a springboard toward a personal vision of the future, I combine found objects and discarded elements from the past with my ceramic work. The mixed media not only creates an intriguing dialogue of materials but also informs the viewer of the scope of the figure’s journey within each narrative.”

Kehinde Wiley’s paintings often blur the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation. Rendered in a realistic mode–while making references to specific Old Master paintings–Wiley creates a fusion of period styles, ranging from French Rococo, Islamic architecture and West African textile design to urban hip hop and the “Sea Foam Green” of a Martha Stewart Interiors color swatch. Wiley’s slightly larger than life size figures are depicted in a heroic manner, as their poses connote power and spiritual awakening. Wiley’s portrayal of masculinity is filtered through these poses of power and spirituality.
