Mário Pedrosa was born in Pernambuco, Brasil. Pedrosa is recognised as one of Latin America’s favourable public intellectual critics regarding art, history and philosophy.
Often Mário’s work focused on Brazilian visual culture through the transition era. During the 1940s, it was a critical time for the modes of modernism and social realism. Eventually, this led to new and exciting trends within the world of arts.
This Sunday 24 September, there is a 3pm talk titled: “Mário Pedrosa: On the Affective Nature of Form” at Whitney Museum in New York. The retrospective event will feature the Brazilian’s life and work. Also, there is a great exhibition, On the Affective Nature of Form on display at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid.
Whitney Museum Address: 99 Gansevoort Street, New York, NY 10014. Hours: 10:30am-10pm. Tickets $8/$10.
Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Address: Calle de Santa Isabel, 52, 28012 Madrid, Spain. Hours: 10am-9pm. Tickets 10€/8€.
What an experience in May. For me, music is what keeps me going, similar to most of you. Imagine three hours and a half hours of heavy riffs and amazing drum solos completely take over your mind and soul.
Eagles of Death Metal were truly amazing. The alternative rock band duo from California captivated the crowd with each song. And of course, Cherry Cola was one of them.
Then I still can’t believe I survived a heavy metal gig! Mastodon blew me away. Tracks including Blood And Thunder, Ember City and Show Yourself were my favourites. The collective headbanging and intense mosh pits were exciting enough for one to let loose and enjoy at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Clearly, I’m going to another concert soon.
