No Coincidence, No Story

Today I was taking a break from learning JavaScript and Gutenberg.

I put on a podcast. It is about coincidences and people telling their best coincidence stories. There are some good ones, like the one of the man, the love story and the dollar bill. Listen and you will see.

I start making coffee and see the boxes of books that I am procrastinating to unpack. I open one. I find this book on The Story of Art that I was reading and then misplaced it. I had been looking for it for more than a year.

I open the page with the bookmark and start reading. It is about wood blocks and Gutenberg movable letters, on the Chapter of Tradition and Innovation II. There is an example, ‘The Art of Dying Well” book: a book printed with a combination of woodcuts and Gutenberg letters.

No Coincidence, No Story.

Zao Wou-Ki Exhibition at MAM in Paris

If you like abstract art and happen to be in Paris before January 2019 you shouldn’t miss Zao Wou-Ki exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. With the title “L’espace est silence”, it is not a retrospective but a selection of large format paintings. The exhibition is well curated and the paintings shine in the big and bright rooms of the museum. 

I took some bad pictures. The official video is thousand times better:

The only thing I missed on the exhibition was more detail on the painting process. 

I would love to see Fabienne Verdier and Zao Wou-Ki paintings exhibited together.
