Blog

A myriad of different posts: featured attendees, titillating guest additions, Haiku Fridays, Wig Wednesdays, important information updates, and organic posts meant to make our lives just a touch more interesting. 

Guest Post: Selected guests will touch us from time to time, in whatever way he or she sees fit. We don't say no. We only say yes. And we take it. Period. Full Stop.  

Spotlight: This post features a highly anticipated attendee of Art Party 2014.  September 27th will be a night of people, not just art; and the featured attendees are the epitome of everything this Event represents. The force of these individuals will make your mouth water and your intellectual loins quiver in anticipation. We will strip down each guest (physically or metaphorically) and hand feed you their unique, decedent aura.

Wig Wednesdays: Art Party will quench its thirst for exhibitionism and its fascination with wigs by featuring a guest wearing the transformative accessory.  Are you thirsty?  Child please, I know you are.

Haiku Fridays: A throwback for some of you.  A virginal experience for others. Make your kireji strong, your kigo relevant, your morae structured and make Masaoka Shiki proud. Read Haikus from attendees and contributors.    

Stendhal Syndrome

K. Kennedy (Attendee) 

Correspondence from our most recent ticket holder... 

"Beeb,
How auspicious - I had the most lovely dream last night.  There were bathtubs of champagne, a beautiful male model who kept insisting on bedazzling people's bodies with fruit, and dazzling, horrifying art.  I could barely wake up and tear myself away (see: Stendhal syndrome). 
You all were there.  Aunty Em and Toto too. 
So don't fear my friend; all your treacherous work will pay off.  And we NYC ladies will be there to bear witness. "

Marie-Henri Beyle (AKA: Stendhal) 

Stendhal Syndrome is a psychosomatic disorder that causes rapid heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations when an individual is exposed to an experience of great personal significance, particularly viewing art or confronted with immense beauty in the natural world. 

A quote from Stendhal about K. Kennedy:

"I love her beauty, but I fear her mind" - Stendhal
