Koralie @ 5024SF Gallery, Opening on Oct. 2nd

“HA?KU” is a solo exhibition featuring French artist Koralie, an internationally renowned fine and street artist.

The show will mirror the concept and form of a haiku, focusing on what Koralie explains as, “Little canvases, little frames, little supports, all recounting a little story.? Koralie has made a name for herself in the international fine art community with her unique street art and gallery work, capturing Geisha-inspired characters with beautiful textures, patterns, colors, and forms. Apart from exhibiting in galleries across the world, Koralie has contributed designs to Upper Playground’s apparel line.

Koralie is based in Montpellier, France. Her Geisha-inspired characters are some of the most unique pieces to pop-up in cities across the world. Her work has been recently seen at Galerie L.J. Beaubourg in Paris and Joshua Liner Gallery in New York City.

Koralie’s “HA?KU? solo exhibition will be on display at the lower level of the FIFTY24SF Gallery from October 2–30, 2008.

Tartan: Hit or Miss?

I’ve always been partial to a bit of tartan. When i saw the Dolce and Gabbana campaign, tartan stuck in my mind as something that would be an prominant feature of the average Londoner’s winter wadrobe and that could only be a good thing. Its rich, its regal, its fly.

Well now, i’m not so sure how i feel about it. Overkill??

Its everywhere. Cheap looking pleated miniskirts, tights/stockings?? A vain attempt at recreating Dame Viv’s classic catwalk creations? I also cant help but feel a little irked whenever i see it classes as a “punk” trend. I cringe a little inside..

I’m not so sure that i’m a fan anymore. Think i’ll be putting my tartan bag to slee for winter…

…Although, if its any consolation, i’m in love with the shoes that Aggy and co are wearing in this pic!

In Conversation: Gloria Steinem and Suheir Hammad

This upcoming election may be the most important one in our lifetime, with  issues such as equal pay and Roe vs. Wade at the forefront of national discussion.  And with Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin running for office, women are beginning to confuse her as an icon of feminism, which is defined as “”the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men.” Contradictory, no?

Well the real icon of feminism, Gloria Steinem, sits down with writer Suheir Hammad and talks about the misconceptions of feminism, not being a breeder, women in the workplace, and of course, Sarah “the Flintstones were real” Palin.

“Having someone who looks like you and behaves like them — who looks like a friend but behaves like an adversary—is worse than having no one.”

Make sure you read up an all the issues that are being discussed this election that can affect our rights as women, as well as our daughters and granddaughters!
