The Reina Sofia Museum Presents REALLY USEFUL KNOWLEDGEThe Reina Sofia Museum Presents REALLY USEFUL KNOWLEDGE
by BWW News Desk - Oct 29, 2014

The notion of 'really useful knowledge' was originated from the workers' awareness of the need for self-education in the early 19th century. In the 1820s and 1830s, workers' organizations in United Kingdom introduced this phrase to describe 'unpractical' knowledge like politics, economics and philosophy, as opposed to what factory owners proclaimed to be “useful knowledge”. Some time earlier capitalists began investing in advancement of their businesses through funding the education of workers in 'applicable' skills and disciplines such as engineering, physics, chemistry or math.

Everything continues to get darker and sketcher on RESURRECTION. More secrets from people's pasts are coming out, old 'friends' are resurfacing, and more and more questions are being left underanswered. Right from the beginning of tonight's episode, entitled 'Will,' we get some important information, that Maggie thinks Arcadia some sort of flu or pneumonia has hit Arcadia, but only for the Returned, which is now up to 6. Well 7, but Bellamy hasn't told anyone else about himself other than Jacob. Sheriff Langston shows Bellamy the bone fragment from the factory and explains the connection between the “trucking accident” at the factory and the Returned. Fred knows his mother is hiding something but won't tell him so he trusts Bellamy to take a shot at cracking Margaret. It's nice to see these two playing nicely together! Good job, boys! (more...)

The Zimmerli Art Museum Presents JESSE KRIMES: APOKALUPTEIN: 16389067The Zimmerli Art Museum Presents JESSE KRIMES: APOKALUPTEIN: 16389067
by BWW News Desk - Oct 1, 2014

Making art serves as an important meditative process for individuals to contemplate – and reflect upon their own roles in – the world around them. Jesse Krimes: Apokaluptein: 16389067, on view at theZimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University through December 14, 2014, is the culmination of one man's experiences. Krimes, who lives and works in Philadelphia, created the individual panels for Apokaluptein: 16389067, the mural at the center of the exhibition, while serving a prison sentence. An art school graduate and professional artist before the arrest, he did not have access to traditional art supplies during the six years of his incarceration and invented a print-transfer system using a plastic spoon, images from The New York Times, and hair gel on prison bed sheets to achieve a silk-screen effect. The result is a 15x39-foot quilt-like installation of thin cotton, loosely nailed to the wall to form a delicate curtain. Figuratively, however, the sheets are very dense, creating layers of meaning. They invite viewers to look more closely and not only join the conversation that the artist has initiated, but also consider their own mediated view of the world. (more...)

Nancy Weber Releases New Novella, AD PARNASSUSNancy Weber Releases New Novella, AD PARNASSUS
by BWW News Desk - Dec 9, 2014

Reviews: 'The writing in all three works is rich with action and conflict, and it encourages readers to burrow deeper into the hidden layers of meaning.' - Publisher's Weekly 'A swift, witty metafiction, Parnassus is life as seen through a kaleidoscope, offering a fresh take on a bright, ever-changing scene.' - Kit Reed 'In Ad Parnassum, Nancy Weber has created a novella that is on the one hand, entirely ingenious, fascinating and clever and on the other, profoundly moving. More, she has introduced a heroine so singular and compelling that we can only hope that Weber will share her again, and soon. How Weber accomplishes this feat is as unique as her heroine.' - Sherri Felt Dratfield 'Weber is the pointillist of prose, crafting prismatic Fragments of images that resonate in one's soul.' - Rose Levy Beranbaum, author of The Baking Bible. 'Nancy Weber excels at whatever she puts her pen to. In her rediscovered work, Ad Parnassum, dating from 1973, she invented an entirely new style of writing. The reader has to work at unraveling clues, but it's worth it when the pieces of the puzzle come together. There's a double reward, two equally surprising short stories all wrapped up in one package.' - Vivian Fancher, Editor, CEOTraveler.com About the Author: Nancy Weber's books include two slipstream novels, 'The Playgroup' and 'Brokenhearted'; eight romances under the name Jennifer Rose; a pair of YA novels, 'Double Solitaire'; and The Life Swap, the mostly true story of the glorious mess that came about in 1973 when she tried to become Micki Wrangler while Micki was trying to be her. Nancy wrote the American lyrics for 'Seagull: The Musical' with noted Russian composer Alexander Zhurbin. Her pieces on food, sex, travel, and family appear often in www.nycitywoman.com, womensvoicesforchange.org, www.ceotraveler.com, and www.libidoforlife.com. She lives in Greenwich Village, the setting for her next novel, a murder mystery in which lovable swinging seniors are targeted by a repressed food blogger. (more...)
