6.4.10

the swing

I’d come across lots of intriguing images from Yinka Shonibare’s show at the Brooklyn Museuma last year, but somehow missed his version of Jean-Honor√© Fragonard’s The Swing. (This pieces looks infinitely better lit in the shadows rather than under stark white lights.) Love the flying shoe!

*Note: in this exhibit, Shonibare created tableaus that combined African style fabrics with European fashion and art to make a statement about how the “African experience has long been a part of Western culture, even if it has been barely depicted on canvas.”

Haven’t seen this movie, but the English boarding school sets and costumes look like perfection.
