Peripatetic Weekend: Fiber Arts, Wallflowers, Jane Austen

October 6, 2012

Movies

Loopers, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Master (now at BAM), Frankenweenie (maybe, it is a Tim Burton film). Plus, there’s a mini-series at BAM called Apocalypse Soon, which includes The Birds, La Jetee, Mad Max, Night of the Comet

Art

Ferdinand Hodler: View to Infinity at the Neue Gallery in Manhattan, brings together his self-portraits; his Symbolist portraits of powerful looking women; his majestic paintings of the Swiss Alpine landscape; and a series of shockingly frank portraits of his lover, Valentine Godé-Darel, documenting her decline and death. Very moving.

Craft

The Kings County Fiber Arts Festival takes place at  the Old Stone House and Washington Park on  Saturday, October 6 from 10AM until 6PM

Books

In addition to the Jane Austen Society of North America’s Annual General Meeting in downtown Brooklyn, there’s a Jane Austen Pop-up shop at the Atlantic Avenue location of Sterling Place.  The  Pop-up was organized by Honey & Wax Booksellers. 

Dance

Political Mother, a dance piece by Hofesh Shechter at BAM this weekend. “A heart-stopping, explosive assault on the senses, Political Mother invokes an atmosphere of struggle and conflict, where repression is met with resistance and survival is paramount.” A heavy metal rock band accompanies on stage. Part of the Next Wave festival.
