On Henry Hudson and plastic bags

Friday, August 7, 2009

For the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson‘s accidental discovery of the greatest city on Earth, Kathy Ryan, director of photography for The New York Times Magazine has curated a show up now at the Museum of New York City of contemporary Dutch artists asked to update their classical tradition. Behold: The. Very. Best. One.

It’s called “Bag” and is one of several  Hendrik Kerstens‘ portraits of his daughter on exhibit.

I humbly suggest that this become a traveling show, because I can think of no more logical future for this collection of works than a sojourn at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam Schipol.

Thanks for the tip, Alexandra!
