In honor of Yom Kippur, the art of 'Modern Mystic' Hyman Bloom

In honor of Yom Kippur, the art of 'Modern Mystic' Hyman Bloom

"Spiritual life cannot be delegated; true spiritual experience can only come from within, and it is only through individual effort to deepen the process that a state of grace can be achieved. Certain kinds of knowledge can only be earned, sometimes through effort, and other times through suffering." So said Hyman Bloom, the influential but overlooked painter whose work is collected in this essential monograph. Despite Bloom's European Jewish heritage, his lifelong interest in mysticism ultimately transcended any one religion, philosophy or point of view. Featured image is "The Stone" (1947).

Remarkable 'Niki de Saint Phalle: Structures for Life' closes today at MoMA PS1

Remarkable 'Niki de Saint Phalle: Structures for Life' closes today at MoMA PS1

Featured image—a photocollage of scenery for Niki de Saint Phalle's unfinished 1977 children's video, The Travelling Companion—is reproduced from Niki de Saint Phalle: Structures for Life, published to accompany the outstanding show closing today at MoMA PS1—remarkably, the artist's first exhibition at a New York museum, and one of her most expansive shows in the United States. Focused on Saint Phalle’s radical, euphoric and feminist public structures, it collects sculptures, works on paper, films and rarely seen archival materials. "The utopian aspect of Saint Phalle’s work is located in its formal, functional, and cultural hybridity," MoMA PS1 curator Ruba Katrib writes. "While [de Saint Phalle] found inspiration in cultures the world over, her output was distinctive, and it captured the imaginations of adults and children alike. For half a century, working in and out of the spotlight, she developed a practice that defies definition. She continuously honed and reinvented her work without concern for the judgments of her fellow artists or critics."

Celebrating the end of summer with the US Open and 'Harold Edgerton: Seeing the Unseen'

It’s tennis time in New York City, and we’re celebrating with this 1949 photograph of mid-century women’s tennis star Gussie Moran demonstrating a power serve—reproduced from Harold Edgerton: Seeing the Unseen, Steidl’s classic monograph on the revered MIT electrical engineering professor and pioneer of electronic strobe flash photography. “For much of the twentieth century, Harold Edgerton’s brilliant images were ubiquitous, compelling to everyone,” Deborah G. Douglas writes. “His tools and techniques transformed entire professions from sports photography to maritime archaeology.” She concludes, “Through his photographs, this American original displayed an alchemist’s ability to turn the straw of industrialization’s relentless, systemic demand for efficiency for the ends of power and wealth into the gold of sublime awe and appreciation of human creativity in service to the common good.”
