MoMA Visit 2.21.11

Hi there! Hope you had a nice President’s day weekend… (if you are in US) We celebrated our anniversary by staying at a nice hotel in mid-town followed by a nice steak house dinner and walking around the beautiful city. It was perfect :) We also stopped by MoMA yesterday after checking out of the hotel — there are lots of interesting exhibitions going on right now, just wanted to share some of the exhibitions we saw…

Picture above is the exhibition entrance wall “Picasso: Guitars 1912-1914” — I enjoyed this a lot. His awesome usage of different materials in each and every piece amazed me. (No photographs are allowed inside of the exhibition.)

Moving onto next exhibition “Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen” — such a fun exhibition! Love the entrance wall, too…

These might gross you out, but I couldn’t help taking pictures of these poster designs. For design inspirations…

and we saw a giant Chemex! For industry use and it can make up to 50 cups of coffee.

These exhibitions are going on for a while, if you ever have a chance, please stop by and see!

Picasso: Themes and Variations

One of the exhibitions I saw at the MoMA last Sunday and thought it was really cool was Picasso’s “Themes and Variations” — it explores Picasso’s creative process through the medium of printmaking. Especially, it was so great to see his linoleum work as I sometimes work with the same medium.

Here is his inspiration:

and his work:

“One series of lithographs shows Picasso progressing, step-by-step, from a realistic depiction of a bull to one that is completely abstracted into schematic lines.” — I loved this!

Obviously, there are many more at the exhibition, I enjoyed it very much.

Oh wow, it is JULY!!! Happy July 1st, everyone!!
