Enjoy virtual Lollapalooza highlights, a powerful photo exhibit about America's civil rights history and one of Europe’s best art museums.
Chicago’s annual Lollapalooza music festival should’ve been the first weekend of August. But luckily a virtual show took its place, so we can enjoy the highlights! CloZee, an electronic musician, plays her upbeat tunes in a zen outdoor setting and "4B", a deejay known for his New Jersey club music (yes, that’s a thing), keeps it real by spinning from the trunk of his car in Jersey! Check out the amazing, Grammy-winning H.E.R. in a more traditional gig with band in tow…if we could just add the stage and the crowd!
American photographer Dawoud Bey shows a moving exhibit at San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art highlighting his passion to capture the past in the current moment. Check out a powerful video with Bey on visualizing history – from his diptychs of Birmingham, AL, residents young & old to recall the city’s painful civil rights past to his Ohio night scenes reimagining what fugitive slaves might’ve seen along the Underground Railroad. Bey says his hearing loss greatly impacts his work, letting him see more vividly to fill in his sensory gaps.
Vienna, Austria’s Albertina Museum opened in 1805, so for a 200+ year old institution their website’s pretty impressive! Explore “Monet to Picasso” in what they call one of Europe’s most important collections from that era. The “Michael Horowitz” photo exhibit highlights the famed Austrian journalist’s record of Vienna’s cultural scene, including shots of a young Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mick Jagger & Andy Warhol. And “The Renaissance of Etching” features meticulous works from the 16th century during the first 70 years of printmaking.
