Murakami



This past weekend we've been to the Takeshi Murakami exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum. I loved to wander among the colourful sculptures and big paintings, when it was so grey outside. Husband managed to steal some pics while we walked around the rooms. I thought the girls would have a lotta fun too, but they didn't get the idea or enjoy the colors until they watched the short movies starring Kaikai and Kiki.

El pasado fin de semana fuimos a la exposición de Takeshi Murakami en el Guggenheim. Me gustó pasearme entre las coloridas esculturas y los grandes cuadros, cuando fuera el día era tan gris. Husband se las arregló para hacer unas fotos mientras andábamos por las salas. Creí que a las niñas les parecería una exposición divertida, a su medida, pero no parecieron conectar con ella hasta que vieron los cortos protagonizados por Kaikai y Kiki.



Today's music:
Cheap Trick

Ese husband, viviendo peligrosamente...

La musica elegida tiene que ver con la valoración de lo que viste?

Those first two pictures... just gorgeous...

Jorge said...

Hombre, yo me refería no a "cheap" como "barato" sino como "fácil"...

Lo que no quitará para que me de un voltio por allí.

i like how your husband captured both you and the art piece in the same picture - it provided a really interesting perspective.

and those cartoons are just hilarious!

Lucky you!
But have you read the other Murakami? Haruki Murakami, he's my favorite right now!

Esti said...

marie-louise, he's one of my faves too.

I agree with everyone, cute pictures of you. And a lucky opportunity to see a Murakami exhibit.
