Thank you Christian Mendoza and +81 Gallery for letting me be a part of this gorgeous and strong exhibition in a very small way. Chris, I truly appreciate the trust you have in me putting your stunning art into words. Congratulations!
Dad! Is giving a talk on his new theory on broken symmetries in the cosmos at MIT if you’re in the Kavli Institute hood and as interested in, you know, broken symmetries as I am. #physics#shitmydadsays
Happy to be back in Brooklyn, where you can low key find the best coffee and duck leg hash just around the next corner.
It’s 10F outside, so I’m catching up on Jack McKain’s (@jackmckain) sensational collection of portraits, feeling inspired and wishing him well during his current adventures around the globe. Looking forward to seeing what he comes back with. Really appreciative of @moiras for the intro. And how amazing is this @sogallant photo?
Now I’m ready for 2018. Bring it on⚡️
Feeling so inspired by Copenhagen’s history, food, design, people and overall hygge, a Danish word that has no direct English translation but roughly refers to a moment or feeling as cosy and special. Hygge (pronounced hooga) could describe enjoying a good moment with good people or simply the warm glow of candlelight. Hygge can be used in so many different ways and also combined with other words, like hyggehouse. It’s an idea and a way of life. 🥂 Here’s to more (and creating more) hygge in all our lives in 2018.
Raided my dad’s stash again tonight because we ain’t getting any younger and carpe diem. (And no, we had no idea what the bottle of 1976 was, but it’s French and 👌.) Happy holidays and may your days be merry and bright 🎉
DJ Nothing But Bangers
Metal is BIG in Mexico, but it’s difficult for Mexican metal bands to travel legally to the US to perform. With the help of @rbma, one of the most brutal bands in Mexico, @disgorgebandofficial, did so for the first time last October, alongside several other influential Latin metal bands, like @mictlantecuhtli_official, who hold it down for Boyle Heights in LA. “Todo Es Metal,” directed by the inspiring and tenacious @angela_boatwright_, is their story. (Special 🙏to the best partners in crime @chustahh and @paula_duran.) This is only the teaser. Please watch the full 6-min piece at the link in bio. #todoesmetal#rbmala#deathmetal
Super excited for 30 Days in Chicago and our Heroes series (by @myersk and @imamodrocker). It features shining young creators in the city, including Teklife’s DJ Taye, who is among the brilliant young disciples of DJ Rashad and carrying the torch of spreading footwork around the world. You can read his story at redbull.com/djtaye. Photography by @zoerainphoto#30DaysinChicago#photography
