Reflecting on humanity and liberty following the horrific terror attack in Paris.
In 1955, Truman Capote rented a basement apartment at 70 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights. His short, autobiographical essay about living in the neighborhood was originally published in February 1959 in Holiday magazine. The essay was brought back into print more than fifty years after with sixty stunning, never-before-seen photos of Capote and his neighborhood by David Attie, originally commissioned for the article but never published–until now.
Lawrence Weiner (American, b. 1942) is a central figure of Post-Minimalism conceptual art, a movement that emphasizes the artist’s idea as the work of art over its material and aesthetic existence as an object. Though he is perhaps best-known for typographic wall installations, which he has produced since the 1970s, Weiner’s oeuvre encompasses many media, including sculpture, performance art and video art.
Lawrence Weiner’s exhibition named “With a Realm of Distance” is now showing at Blenhaim Palace until 20th December 2015.
