Sun 31st October: NYC - "Move!" MoMA PS1 - Ohne Titel vs. Tauba Auerbach
This weekend PS1 has converted its gallery into a live event "Move!" which brings together New York's fashion designers and artists who have teamed up to create performances, installations and screenings. Some of these collaborations include Brody Condon and Rodarte, Rashaad Newsome and Alexander Wang, Rob Pruitt and Marc Jacobs, Dan Colen and Proenza Schouler. I always love a trip out to Queens to visit the converted school building now home to one of the world's most interesting modern art galleries. Its a real highlight that on my trip to the city this time, its fallen on the occasion of this special fashion and performance event. Purrrrrrrrrfect for me!
Here is one of my favourites by Tauba Auerbach and Ohne Titel. A room painted blue and white gave space for 12 girls in a choreographed routine wearing blue and white panelled jersey costumes. The way their bodies fused together in "Pause/Applause" rolling around the floor in a sea of blue was a little like Ballie Walsh's "Slow" video for Kylie - which is all good by me!
