"Book About Death" @ MOMA Wales

My Card [above]

Me and Susie Liddle in the Exhibition

Me and Susie [aka my pimp] travelled down to the MOMA Wales in Machynlleth to see the exhibition "Book About Death" which we both had cards in, such an amazing exhibition, very moving and inspirational, and surprisingly not morbid, most of the cards dealt with Death in a very humorous way [although the cards from the New York exhibition were on the whole quite sombre] it was great spotting recurring themes and images aswell and seeing such variety of ideas, media and styles. The big bonus for us both was meeting Sonja Benskin Mesher who organized the exhibition, she was such a lovely down-to-earth and friendly lady, and incredibly welcoming [she took the above photo of us] It was brilliant to be able to thank her in person for all the hard work she'd put into the organization of the exhibition and to discuss the work and art in general! there's heaps of info about the exhibition here: http://www.culturecolony.com/news?id=1897 unfortunately the exhibition ends at the weekend but thankfully we got to see it [and thank Sonja in person] before it ends, but since the "Book About Death" is a global project hopefully it will continue to grow and grow!!
