More Sweetly Play the Dance
‘More Sweetly Play the Dance’ by William Kentridge is shown across the walls of a room. Featuring a slow progression of shadowy figures walking to a haunting tune played by a brass brand, it includes skeletons, generals being pulled along on platforms by bent-over women, dancers in traditional African dress, people on medical drips and a religious procession. All hint at the human and natural crises that force people to flee their homes and walk long distances: hunger, floods, poverty, war. The effect is stunning in its sights and sounds –and in its humanity. Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art, Capetown.

Cornelia Parker at the MCA
One of the most important women artists working today, known for her transformation of everyday objects into unexpected, haunting scenarios. Things are exploded, shot, turned back to front, and rearranged in often surprising ways. Working with sculpture and installation, as well as drawing, photography and film, Parker positions her subjects at the very moment of their transformation, suspended in time and completely still.

Exhibits that Move
The newly-remodeled Museum of Modern Art in New York uses architecture as part of the visual experience and features exhibits such as "Handles" that docents (voluntary guides) climb into at 4 pm and "drive" around. The exhibit features six sculptures which are activated daily, with dazzling geometries, and the play of light and sound

A concert in a monastery
We saw a wonderful concert in this monastery on the outskirts of Vienna featuring two beautiful women.  This 900 year-old Monastery called Klosterneuburg has sacred works of art, including the “Verdun Alter” and the Archducal Crown. It offers an impressive insight into the magnificent Baroque style.
