Crossing Brooklyn Ferry Bryce and Aaron Dessner’s 3 day curated musicfest for which I have had tickets for months~ before I even knew that the Frieze Art Fair was coming to Randalls Island. Lo and behold it ran simultaneously. I only, kind of, got to go on Saturday- the last night.
First I went to BAM heard the Brooklyn Youth Chior and Bryce Dessner- then I split for the gallery-
Yes thats a Chuck Close contact sheet juxtaposed with my photos. I wasnt there when they carried Mr. Close up (& down) three flights of stairs so he could see the show.
After dinner I headed back to BAM. I missed My Brightest Diamond but saw Bierut. The LOVER in me was so happy to have gotten free and utilized my concert tickets… I had skipped 4 shows that I had tickets to prior to this nite /Miike Snow/ The Cranberries/ & 2 Nights of CBF so I was naturally in heaven after hearing some live music. Blissed out and somewhat tired I decided to take the G Train home…I saw Tunde and his lovely wife as we were all getting off of the subway. The internet tells me he composed the music for this film~ was it shown at the festival?
I walked home alone on Cinco De Mayo under the Super Moon.
A week ago the LOVER in me took part in a little philanthropy and attended the super fun Bent on Learning Benefit. It felt good to give to this amazing institution that gives children real yoga and a practice of inner reality that last a lifetime. And also to hear a great yoga rap song, and meet the fabulous Belinda Becker.
