To paraphrase Francesca Woodman: What happened is I used to play the pianotake photographs... Then at one point I no longer needed to translate the notes; they went directly into my hands. When I started again, I could not play. I could not play by instinct. This is me getting back to the place where it can be fun again.
I visited the MFA yesterday and saw the Harry Callahan and Albrecht Durer exhibits just before they closed.
The Callahan exhibit was interesting but not spectacular. It was a fairly small space and he has such a variety of work that I think it would have been better to narrow the focus a little. It was a good overview but it seemed a little scattershot given the limited number of pieces they could show. I would love to see a three-room exhibit where one room was the more abstract work (the flashlight photos especially), another room was the figurative work and the third was everything else.
