Need a little wit & daring in your so-called life? Here are four weekend activities that will liberate your spirit & open your mind

Need a little wit & daring in your so-called life? Here are four weekend activities that will liberate your spirit & open your mind
If you're like us, the time has come–if only for the safe space of the weekend–to GET LOOSE. We're taking inspiration from Dorothy Iannone's emotionally and sexually charged 1969 recipe book, Eva Hesse's searching and searingly honest diaries and the impassioned early love letters of John Cage to Merce Cunningham. Perhaps most importantly, we're breaking free of the stranglehold of "good" musical taste with a gleefully wrong playlist from the editors of 'The World's Worst: A Guide to the Portsmouth Sinfonia.'

Never forget glamour and the night! Dream, preen and play!

Never forget glamour and the night! Dream, preen and play!
For many of us, the last two weeks of social distancing have been the hardest. Cooking at home has lost much of its charm, as have the natural look, sweatpants and parenting. So we're breaking away from defensive pragmatism and finding inspiration in the avant-garde (yet DIY-patterned) designs of "America's First Couturier" Charles James; the weirdly interesting hairstyle trends of 70s, 80s and 90s Switzerland; and an energizing 90s playlist from Waltpaper's 'New York: Club Kids' days.

See the new film on Hilma af Klint, playing in virtual cinemas via Kino Marquee

See the new film on Hilma af Klint, playing in virtual cinemas via Kino MarqueeWhen Swedish artist Hilma af Klint died in 1944 at the age of 81, she left behind a prolific body of work. It remained largely unseen until landmark exhibitions in 2013 and 2018 thrust af Klint onto the world's stage. Predating modernist abstraction, the works were a revelation to many and called for a revision of the art historical narrative. Now a new film, 'Beyond the Visible,' introduces this visionary artist to a wider audience.

Natasha Gilmore's Staff Pick Reading List for Sheltering-in-Place

Natasha Gilmore's Staff Pick Reading List for Sheltering-in-Place
It goes without saying that we are living through an unprecedented, open-ended time of confusion, fear, pressure and information overload. All that we have loved (and hated) and every small, hard-to-quantify detail that has given our days structure up until now has been upended. And yet… we still have books! For us book people, reading IS structure. So we've asked one of our resident experts, Natasha Gilmore, for her Staff Pick Reading Books for this period of voluntary (or involuntary) quarantine. Be inspired… and enjoy!

Eat, Drink, Play: Some weekend suggestions for the age of social distancing

Eat, Drink, Play: Some weekend suggestions for the age of social distancingHow strange it is to have so much time these days, and yet so little. How full our minds are, and yet how empty! With each day blending into the next and an overwhelming awareness of the chaos that has come to surrounds us, we wanted to acknowledge the welcome, stabilizing force of the weekend. Here are three "recipes" (and a playlist) for an evening of light-hearted fun during the age of social distancing.

'John Cage: A Mycological Foray—Variations on Mushrooms' is here at last!

Featured spreads are reproduced from the undisputed bookseller favorite of Spring 2020, John Cage: A Mycological Foray—Variations on Mushrooms, releasing today from Atelier Éditions. "I have come to the conclusion that much can be learned about music by devoting oneself to the mushroom," Cage writes in Music Lovers' Field Companion, reproduced in the book alongside other writings and a wealth of mushroom-themed compositions by Cage, photographs, illustrations, ephemera and a second volume reproducing Cage’s 1972 portfolio, Mushroom Book. "For this purpose, I have recently moved to the country," Cage continues. "Much of my time is spent poring over 'field companions' on fungi. These I obtain at half price in second-hand bookshops, which later are in some rare cases next door to shops selling dog-eared sheets of music, such an occurrence being greeted by me as irrefutable evidence that I am on the right track. The winter for mushrooms, as for music, is a most sorry season. Only in caves and houses where matters of temperature and humidity, and in concert halls where matters of trusteeship and box office are under constant surveillance, do the vulgar and accepted forms thrive. American commercialism has brought about a grand deterioration of the Psalliota campestris, affecting through exports even the European market. As a demanding gourmet sees but does not purchase the marketed mushroom, so a lively musician reads from time to time the announcements of concerts and stays quietly at home…"
