Every semester we have a departmental scheduled field trip to NYC [ or in other close cities’] museums and galleries!!! This semester it happened on March 28th! I KNOW I AM SO LUCKY! Every time I am in MOMA or any other world famous art altar 😛 I just say THANK YOU UNIVERSE!!! I realize that not everybody gets a chance to be in those places, especially several times and sometimes for FREE 😛 Being a student is such a JOY and of course it has its own negative sides 😛 but I am gonna focus on POSITIVE ones ! hahahah SO we had 2 groups and we had to choose with which group to go with. I sighed up for my drawing class group, and then I felt a bit sad because my gut feeling told me to go with the other one. So whenever I go against it, Itâ€™s usually not that much fun!
Well, at least I got to see the Morgan Libraries that I have never been, they let us see very rare drawings that are only in the museums private collection, so itâ€™s kinda almost impossible to see them. YET my concern was that there was only 10 drawings, I would rather go and see a huge building full of drawings than just those tenâ€¦ well whatâ€™s the point ? They are hidden anyways, only certain minority has seen it.. Then I went to see Rembrandt and his followerâ€™s show. That was really GOOD! I liked that a lot! It made me think why I donâ€™t do small scale works ? More precise and small. I like grandeur scale, but I guess sometimes I can try small scale as well!Â
Also, we got to wait a lot… and find the way to other galleries to visit. SO we went to Forum Gallery in the city, itâ€™s a very fancy place. So the exhibition I saw belonged to the artist Odd Nerdrum. Heâ€™s compared to Rembrandt as one of the contemporary artist who produced humongous amount of self portraits! Anyways, I liked that show thought, it was quite interesting. Then I just left the group and went back to MoMA! Yes, I found my way hahaha. Itâ€™s not that easy to be lost in the city when you donâ€™t know where you are going anyway! But my friend and I managed actually to get lost, thank goodness, one of my alert classmates noticed our sudden â€œevaporationâ€ lol and all of a sudden he â€˜s like where you guys are going, this way! We were like way more away from the group! That was fun story to remember! 😀 MoMa amazes me all the time, SO I just love being in that environment! So much to look at!
|at MoMAÂ Exquisite Corpses: Drawing and DisfigurationÂ and THIS! It was one of my favorites actually 😀 Â so bizarre and of course I like weird.|
|at MoMAÂ EugÃ¨ne Atget: â€œDocuments pour artistesâ€I saw this!Â|
I guess I had fun on the bus quite lot! Hugh Laurie aka House MD, my mentor, and myself 😀 Nothing can beat that! 😀
PS I can’t believe I forgot to post this on TIME! Just found on my drafts! Yet, I posted it on my other blog…when you have dozen blogs to write, that is what happens on a regular basis! Â well anyways. hope you enjoyed it!
