Indeed.

Ironic Facial Hair

The trend of ironic facial hair has clearly arrived in the Netherlands over the past 12 months. It only took about four years for it to migrate from Williamsburg to the rest of the US, but who’s counting? Seeing as Man Ray pioneered ironic facial hair at least 66 years ago, if not earlier, maybe the Williamsburg hipsters are the ones who were late?

Speaking of Man Ray, and facial hair, if you happen to find yourself in Groningen anytime soon, you can catch a work by me that touches on both. On view at NP3, until the 26th of April.

A conversation with (Daniel Roth)

Heads up.

If you happen to find yourself in Amsterdam this March, then you really should make sure to find your way to Fons Welters Gallery, and go check out the work of Daniel Roth.

If you’d like to read a bit about Daniel, then you can read my interview with him here (English), or here (Dutch).

See you next week!

If walls had ears, what would the ceiling be? I wonder. Especially with this ceiling, which has heard it’s fair share of history over the years.
