Yayoi Kusama Exhibition at the Whitney Museum

The Whiteny Museum of American Art, is paying homage to Yayoi Kusama with a retrospective that features works spanning her career,  and will be on display from July 12 – September 30.

Kusama was born in Japan in 1929, and came to the United States at the age of 28, where she found herself at the epicenter of the New York avant-garde. With her ground breaking exhibitions and art “happenings,” she had achieved success. After reaching fame, she returned to her native country in 1973 and is now one of Japan’s most prominent contemporary artists.

She is well known for her use of dense patterns of polka dots and nets, as well as her intense, large-scale environments, In Yayoi Kusama work she uses a variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, film, performance, and immersive installation.

There are still a few months to catch the retrospective of one of the most famous artists to come out of Japan; you DEFINITELY don’t want to miss this!

Martin Schoeller shoots 2012 Olympian’s

Martin Schoeller, the German photographer has taken the past few months traveleing across the US shooting the rising stars of the 2012 Olympic athletes. Schoeller is know for his undistinguished style, always capturing the stark reality of his subjects in his work, and these photographs are no different. He gives the viewer an intimate glimpse at the person behind the fierce competitor.

This work is featured in big time publications like TIME Magazine and Women’s Health.  His portraits of Gabby Douglas, Lolo Jones and Ryan Lochte will be appearing on three simultaneous covers of TIME Magazine this week, hitting stands this past Friday. The shots of Natalie Coughlin and Allyson Felix ran in this month’s Women’s Health. While his portrait of Natsia Liukin did not, as she face planted during a qualifying round and unfortunately did not make it to the games.

Don’t forget to tune in for the opening ceremony & the games to see these rising stars in action!

The ‘Dark Knight Rises’

The wait is over for for one of the most anticipated movie releases, The Dark Knight Rises, the final chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, premiered in Gotham City on the evening of Monday, June 16th. Actors Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Anne Hathaway and others dazzled on the red carpet at AMC Lincoln Square Theater for the world premiere of the movie, which swooped into theaters yesterday, Friday, July 20th.

At the premier the stars were just as bright and engaging as they are in costume (minus the latex, the masks, and the weapons). Anne Hathaway stunned in a white Prabal Gurung dress, a far cry from her darker, more sultry aesthetic in the film, and Marion Cotillard followed suit in a White Swan Dior ensemble of the same hue. Both stars looked divine (as did Christian Bale, Cillian Murphy, and Jojo Gogo Lev, obvs). Here are a few of my favorite pic’s from that night!

Can’t wait to see the stars in all of their glory on the big screen! #excited

Opening Ceremony goes UK!

Retailers are popping up all over London, thanks to the Olympics. But one retailer is there to stay, with a permanent store to follow their pop up at Covent Gardens.

Opening Ceremony may be one of New York’s hippest boutiques, and now they are taking the leap across the pond to bring a new style to an already evolving fashion audience in London, and soon Europe. The temporary pop-up is ready in time for the opening ceremony of the Olympics next week, which naturally Humerto Leon and his business partner, Carol Lim will be attending.

The permanent fixture will be posted up at 35 King Street in Covent Garden and is set to open in October.

Can’t wait to see where the next Opening Ceremony Euro location will turn up!
