Complicated freshness

Art days, and days of literature …

In summer you may be in the need of “hiding” in a public library or bookstore, to escape the heat outside, while you wait for someone (to work, study or fun).

For me, days like these are dedicated to arts and literature, interactive or paper updates to capture all the news of the moment and possibly deepen the knowledge in the areas that I love.

This morning the photography books and news about the world of contemporary art or literary initiatives dedicated to Bologna dominated throughout. I realised that despite the crisis, creativity continues to give unexpected surprises, puffs of oxygen, that is really needed.

From secret gardens in NY to disputes of the Venice Biennale 2011, groups of English reading in Bologna or  festival of video art that are likely to be supplanted by those of music (see the Umbria Jazz Festival), my mind easily leaves for journey of beauty.

Some title for good reads:

NEW LANDS. Architectures And Landscapes Of The MARGINS “By Sara Marini

PHOTOGRAPHY LESSONS” By L.Ghirri

COMPLICATED ORDER” By Yona Friedman

The GARDEN” By Clément

FLYING WIND CONVERSATIONS” By Gianni Celati

SINGAPORE SONGLINES” By Rem Koolhas

Not even spoil the reading of Werner Herzog‘s “Encounters at the END of the WORLD

Cultural lectures necessary for an author… The next installment? perhaps dedicated to imagine a new theme for bookcrossing. Who knows?

About Odile Milton

I travel through words whenever possible. Odile Milton is my signature on the web as I wanted an alter ego to indicate only my writings and works, not my personal life. Odile like the dancer in black swan, and Milton from the novel An old-fashioned girl. View all posts by Odile Milton
