Walter De Maria is one of my favorite artists. He passed at the age of 77 yesterday. His works were astounding and fine examples of minimal yet monumental art installations. Two of those are pictured below (The Broken Kilometer and the Earth Room).
Raf Simons said goodbye to his post at Jil Sander this season. Another magazine has a great interview with the florist who complimented the extraordinary show. Some of Mark Colle’s work below:
Watched L’amour Fou at The Paris Theater (my favorite theater in the city) last night. So beautifully done and so sad. It was amazing to see all the spectacular art that Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge had collected over 20 years, but disturbing to see it all split up. More saddening then that though was that Yves never seemed to have found happiness and contentment despite his fame, success and ongoing legacy. It was great to hear Pierre Berge speak about Yves because I’m reading The Beautiful Fall (a must read!) and he is not always portrayed as the most tender hearted person in the book.
