Krooklyn: A Work in Progress

First, thanks to those of you who have already visited my entry: "Krooklyn" in the Contagious Media Showdown sponsored by the fellow travelers at EYEBEAM. My aim is to have a respectable showing, and thanks to you fellow bloggers (who link to my Krooklyn site) it's already happening. Unique visitors count in the tally so 'spread the word' in any way you can.

In a short while the showdown will be over and this little experiment in net nonsense will be herstory.

Every little bit helps and it will come back to you, if not in this lifetime then in the next, I promise.

Hilla Rebay@ The Guggenheim
Went to seet the Art of Tomorrow exhibit just yesterday. While not a blockbuster there are a number of gems in this first-time exhibit paintings by Hilla Rebay alongside many paintings collected at the former Museum of Non-Objective Art (now known as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum). Rudolp Bauer comes off looking very good, Kandinsky emerges triumphant as always and H. Rebay's paintings look a little thin and slighty anemic. See had the eye but not the hand, the will but not the means; yet her contribution to advanced art can not be easily dissed.
If you are interested in the long history of abstract art in America this is a must-see. The Daniel Buren Eye of the Storm exhibit contimues there as well.
