Remembering the Australian singer, Sia‘s old style of music. Her lyrics are forever magic. One can disappear to another place for a moment…
I’m so glad I found this. Those words should sound familiar. English post-punk rock band, Editors released this song in 2005. Amazing!
Dreams are one of those aspects of life which we question, analyze and ponder every morning when we wake up.
Images and ideas float in our minds as one tries to understand the emotion and connections. Meanwhile, artists are often inspired by the unconscious mind and in this case it’s surrealism.
Surrealism is my favourite 1920s art and literary movement. The greats come to mind such as André Breton (French), Francisco Goya (Spanish), Max Ernst (German), René Magritte (Belgian) and Salvador Dalí (Spanish). It’s amazing to view an alternative degree of content and context in art.
About 30 photographs and video works are on display focusing on the 1970s to present day with some of the best including black and white portraits by Robert Frank, Jem Southam’s never-ending spectacular skies, radiant Irish rainbows and lovely English seascapes. Discover how surrealism creatively transforms the way things are seen. Let your mind wonder and escape into its own irrational reality.
If you like English alternative rock, check out the indie group Foals.
My highly recommended top 5 bars for a night of drinks in Manhattan:
1. Booker And Dax – 207 Second Avenue, New York, NY 10003 $$
Lovely lighting paired with spirited, shaken, stirred and sharp cocktails allow young twentysomethings to sip away and discuss affairs to alternative music in the background. Early evening is the best to arrive for seating in East Village.
2. Attaboy – 134 Eldridge Street, New York, NY 10002 $$$
Hidden with that speakeasy style with candles and cocktails. Creative mixologists keep the surprise alive all night making your every desire come true on the Lower East Side.
3. Sugar Factory – 46 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014 $$$
The Meatpacking District is always buzzing and this candy crazed venue has everything to offer from candy canes, rainbow swirls, Swedish Fish to chocolate treats accompanied by massive cocktails. Think vibrant colors or pink and girls night out. Make a reservation and dress appropriately.
4. Corkbuzz Wine Studio – 75 Ninth Avenue, New York, NY 10011 $$
If you are more refined and prefer a glass of wine, this is the place for you. Cozy up in an intimate corner or people watch as the locals rush through Chelsea Market. Either way, you’re going to love this place for a nice glass, a wine tasting, a wine workshop or even a wine education session. Expand your wine knowledge tonight on the West Side.
5. The Polo Bar – 1 East 55th St, New York, NY 10022 $$$$
Saving the best for last. Ralph Lauren’s sophisticated bar has a beautiful decor with a jazzy vibe to create the ambience for that opulent patron in Midtown. Definitely make a reservation for guaranteed entry.
These are perfect options to end the weekend in different parts of the city.
