Once upon a time ... Magritte Duane Michals, René Magritte, 1967
René Magritte is world famous for his strange and poetic images. He was born on 21 November 1898 in Lessines, (Hainaut) Belgium. When Magritte is 12 years old, he attends drawing classes above a sweet shop! At 18, because the art of painting seems somehow 'magical', he decides to make this his career and he enrols at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brussels. Georgette and René Magritte, 1922
At 15, Magritte meets Georgette at a fair. A few years later, they meet again and marry. She becomes his favourite model and she lets him stage the scenes where he paints her in all sorts of outfits and in some surprising poses and places. A great complicity unites them throughout their lives!

During his years at the Academy, Magritte meets a lot of other artists who later become hi…
Todos os anos, diversas agências de notícias e de fotografias, selecionam as melhores fotos do ano. Visitando os diversos sites, escolhi algumas que mais me tocaram. Possivelmente não sejam apenas belas, mas me surpreendi com a alta frequência de fotos relacionadas com as mudanças climáticas. Ou foi meu olhar de pesquisadora?
Inicio com uma seção de mundo, natureza, humano...
As paisagens se modificam, com diversos conflitos climáticos! Não pude me esquivar das políticas fascistas em plena ascensão, que coadunam com as catástrofes ecológicas, e que forjam a migração desesperada neste mundo contemporâneo.
Entre territórios e desterritorializações, parece que o poder político dos sexos, racismos, preconceitos e violências promovem a extinção da própria Terra. Contudo, quiçá novas linhas de fuga possibilitem o esperançar do pulsar da VIDA!
Que em 2019, as tribos usem suas máquinas de guerra contra Thanatos. E que os coletivos poéticos consigam emergir com a força de Eros!

The InstallationNOTHING WILL QUITE PREPARE YOU for the setting of LACMA's astonishing new show featuring the works of René Magritte and thirty-one contemporary artists. As Suzanne Muchnic wrote in the Nov. 12 Los Angeles Times, “John Baldessari, a pioneering conceptualist represented in the show, has designed an installation intended to turn the galleries—and visitors' experience—upside down. The entrance will re-create ‘The Unexpected Answer,’ a Magritte painting of a door with a cutout silhouette of a gh…
