Laissez les bons temps rouler, it’s Mardi Gras!

For Catholics, tomorrow is the beginning of Lent, a six-week period of fasting and prayer. Around the world, this period of quiet piety and reflection is ushered in by massive colorful parades and celebrations called Carnival—except in Louisiana, where it goes by the name Mardi Gras.

Translated from French as “Fat Tuesday,” Mardi Gras festivities have actually been in full swing for weeks. The season is marked by festive costumes, king cake and elaborate parades across New Orleans and nearby cities.

The Hyperrealist Sculptures of Ron Mueck

To view works from Ron Mueck’s current exhibit in Buenos Aires, visit the Fundación Proa location page.

Australian-born sculptor Ron Mueck has lived and worked in the United Kingdom for the past several decades, where he has gained global notoriety for his hyperrealist sculptures fashioned from fiberglass, silicon and resin. By replicating human anatomy in excruciating detail, Mueck dramatizes and explores themes of life and death through sculptures both miniature and massive.

Mueck’s latest works, which debuted in April at the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain in Paris, France, recently made their way to Fundación Proa in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In March, the show will continue its tour through South America at the Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro.

VANCE JOY - Riptide (live)

Le folk, sans la dépression nerveuse.

On connaissait le concept de chansons-gigognes, mais pas encore celui de voix-gigognes : le jeune Australien possède ainsi plusieurs cordes (vocales) à son arc (en ciel). Voix autoritaire, voix plaintive, voix folk retenue, voix pop exaltée : Vance Joy les a toutes apprivoisées, au service de son songwriting qui raconte le vent dans les cheveux, les fins d’après-midi chill à Melbourne et le ukulélé heureux. Le folk, sans la dépression nerveuse, sans la barbe à poux, sans la chemise en flanelle à carreaux, sans la casquette John Deere : air frais.
