Go See Some Music

urbandesert:

Get off your butt and go see some music.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I think there is something really incredible happening in Phoenix and Arizona. The music scene here is astounding. I was at Dia de los Crescent (Crescent Ballroom’s 2 year anniversary) last night and I’m…

"I want to go barefoot because it’s holy ground; I want to be running because time is short and none of us has as much runway as we think we do; and I want it to be a fight because that’s where we can make a difference. That’s what love does."

Self-Taught Genius
 
American Folk Art Museum, 2 Lincoln Square, NYC (at 66th St)

At the turn of the twentieth century, the field of American folk art was being defined by collectors, professional artists, critics, dealers, and curators whose search for an authentic American art seemed to be finally answered in works that presented a multivalent picture of national identity, faith, progress, ingenuity, community, and individuality. As the field matured under the umbrella of “folk art,” it was also expanded to include a wider variety of expressions and artists working in the present. For the  last twenty years, the term “self-taught” has more regularly come to address artistic inspiration emerging from unsuspected paths and unconventional places, giving voice to individuals situated outside the social consensus. This exhibition proposes a reframing of the conversation to consider the continuum of American folk art through the concept of “self-taught genius” as an elastic and enduring notion whose meaning has evolved over time.
