Made a field trip to the Guggenheim this weekend to check the Chaos and Classicism exhibition. This was work produced during the 'inter-war' period. it's highly charged, uber-creative (of course), but political. you see emotional energy in the period - from the dawn of the armistice and the rise from the depth of war through the strengthening to the brink - or as the Guggenheim set - the 1936 olympic games.
Really enjoyed the work, the energy. I love the guggenheim. I feel connected to the work when i'm there. The site's writeup will do a much better job than me of explaining the details and the artists, but I do say the energy is sharp, and strong. Recommend strongly, if you enjoy art and feeling.
This is Fridel Dehleffs-Edelmann. self-portrait wearing an artist's smock. Germany. 1932.
1 more work from the online exhibit.
Enjoy, and hope to see you later in the week.
