Piet Mondrian


Broadway Boogie Woogie, 1942/43

Como inserir a assinatura sem interferir na composição? Vejam as iniciais PM em vermelho, dentro de um quadrado azul no canto esquerdo (no detalhe, abaixo, fica mais fácil ver). O ano está na mesma linha, em outro quadrado azul, no canto direito.

Adrian Piper


Colored People, 1991

“Tickled pink. Scarlet with embarrassment. Purple with anger. Blue. Green with envy. Jaundiced yellow. White with fear. Black depression.” Adrian Piper’s book is a collaboration with sixteen people who were asked to cut out these ‘metaphorical moods’ and record them as photographs which Piper then took responsibility for sorting, depending on her response to the expressions. According to Piper, the book “was intended as a light-hearted conceptual gesture with serious implications”.
Colored People is a project that attempts to deal with two aspects of prejudgement; those made about others and those made about art that is delimited as political as a method of containment of what else it may be about, how richly politics may be defined. (via bookworks)

 (a artista é mestiça, branca com traços de negro, e por isso muita gente fica surpresa quando ela diz que é  negra.o livro faz um trocadilho também com "pessoas de cor", um eufemismo para disfarçar o racismo)

Foi aprendiz tipógrafo com um primeiro oficial de tipografia da Imprensa Nacional numa antiga oficina tipográfica do Cais do Sodré em Lisboa.

Jorge de Sousa Braga


A última pincelada

Viveu em tempos um pintor que nunca conseguia acabar de pintar uma ave, fosse ela uma cegonha ou uma garça. Quando se preparava para dar a última pincelada, ela levantava voo.

E o pintor ficava muito tempo ainda a persegui-la com o pincel no céu azul...
