Welcome to Preventi Shoes. We Are Global Nomads

Eva Hesse x Sol LeWitt: Converging Lines

Hoy os traemos un regalo. Eran otros tiempos, también otros ritmos. Con motivo de la exposición “Converging Lines” de Eva Hesse y Sol LeWitt que celebra hasta mediados de mayo el Blanton Museum of Art en Tejas, la comisaria ha lanzado un Tumblr: converginglinesbma.tumblr.com con la correspondencia entre estos dos prominentes artistas.

En total son 39 postales desde diversos puntos del mundo que Sol le manda a Eva: Egipto, España y Alemania, por mencionar algunos, y en las que el artista se revela como un auténtico Global Nomad. “Son meditadas, divertidas y encantadoras – puro Sol. Y siendo el artista que era, pensó cuidadosamente en todos los ingredientes: la imagen de la postal, el mensaje incluído e incluso el sello usado”, nos cuenta la comisaria Veronica Roberts.

Y termina Veronica con un interesante statement: “La gente parece apreciar más que nunca el recibir postales escritas a mano, en parte, estoy convencida, porque estamos estamos sumergidos en la irritante eficacia de los emails, que se apilan como coches listos para el desguace. Al contrario de los emails, que insisten en una respuesta, las cartas son regalos que no implican expectativas”. Así que aprovecha estos días de semana santa para comprar alguna postal y sorprender a alguien.

Today we have brought you a present. Those were other times, but also other rhythms. On the occasion of Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt “Converging Lines” exhibition is celebrated until mid-May in Blanton Museum of Art in Texas. The curator has launched a Tumblr: converginglinesbma.tumblr.com along the correspondence between these two prominent artists.

Sol sends to Eva 39 postcards in total from different parts of the world: Egypt, Spain and Germany –just to mention a few– and the artist has revealed to be an authentic Global Nomad. “They are thoughtful, funny, and charming—classic Sol. And being the artist he was, he thought carefully about all of its ingredients: the image on the postcard, the message inside—even the stamp he used” explains to us the curator Veronica Roberts.

And Veronica ends with an interesting statement: “People seem to appreciate receiving handwritten letters now more than ever, in part, I’m convinced, because we are drowning in the irritating efficiency of emails, which pile up like car wrecks. Unlike emails, which insist upon a response, letters are gifts with no expectations attached—a chance to say something kind without causing someone to blush or requiring anything in return” So, because Easter is coming up, take advantage to buy some postcards and surprise anyone.
