The layers in Mark Bradford's work are like the layers in every individual's life. He places them one by one - sometimes they have text already or some graphic - a unique experience in each layer. Then there's glue, then another layer. Inevitably, it gets a bit bumpy - hard to keep tens of layers of glue and paper perfectly flat, especially once it starts to dry unevenly, with moisture warping the paper. Then there are moments when he's layered these bungee cords - structure of sorts. And then other moments when he cuts around them and rips them out. Layers were already placed over-top, scars are left behind. The top part of the paper is stripped from its white pulp. There are the dots and blurs from printing an overly large image - makes you wonder if he meant for it to be like the pigment in our skins. Makes you wonder if he's showing that underneath we're all the same pulp. — #MarkBradford #Hirshhorn #PickettsCharge #ArtMuseum #ArtInstallation #BungeeCord #CollageArt #Collage #CurvedWalls #Smithsonian #AmericanArt

Pumpkin season is in full swing! 🎃 Here’s a #TBT to the great Pumpkin, Yayoi Kusama’s sculpture at the @hirshhorn. I hand-painted each spot on this dress to coordinate with her dotted gourd! #InfiniteKusama

A few months ago, I posted a picture of my mom in front of a Kiefer and it got 2,400 likes. My sister got a little jealous. So let’s see if we can get this to 2,500 likes!! — #GeorgBaselitz #Hirshhorn #GermanArt #NewCamera #ColorSplash #OilPaintings #NeoExpressionism #Expressionist

Fire for a heart

I went to see an interactive exhibit this weekend at the @hirshhorn called “Pulse.” All the lights in this room are being set off by heartbeats of the people before me and mine is registering on the light in front of me, and once I let go of the bar,My heartbeat will be the first row of lights until the next person comes. How cool is this? ✨

“In the late 60s I wanted to try my hand at more geometric shapes than those I had been painting previously. This meant that I had to struggle to maintain my own identity and not be rattled by anything going on around me, most of which seemed empty and phony, but some of which was valuable." -Frankenthaler quoted in Julia Brown’s, “A Conversation,” in After Mountains and Sea: Frankenthaler 1956–1959, (New York: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1998), 42. Helen Frankenthaler, "Indian Summer," 1967, acrylic on canvas, 93 1/2 × 93 5/8 inches (237.5 × 237.8 cm).

Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC - 워싱턴은 박물관의 도시이기 때문에 언제나 사람이 많은데 그나마 사람이 없어 편히 쉴 수 있는 곳. 현대미술관이기 때문인데 작품은 아주 기대할만하진 않다. (개인적인 의견) — #hirshhornmuseum #hirshhorn #washingtondc #dc #museum #gallery #contemporaryart #architecture #sculpture #garden #박물관 #미술관 #건축 #현대미술 #워싱턴 #디씨

Siebren Versteeg는 자화상을 코드화하고 해체해, 두 개의 채널에 흐르도록 하였다. 자화상의 물리적인 형태와 그것을 디지털화하는 트랜지션의 영역을 무너지도록 만들어 이미지가 아무데도 속하지 않 - . #SiebrenVersteeg #Washington #HIRSHHORN

3 of 3: deKooning’s “Clamdigger” at the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden (December 2018) — closeup on the dew. The bronze sculptures were all covered in dew that day. I liked the contrast of the rough edges of metal with the roundedness of the water droplets. Who is your favorite sculpturer? . . . .
