FIAC TIPS: Rainer Maria Rilke, “Letters to a Young Painter”, David Zwirner Books

Never before translated into English, Rainer Maria Rilke’s fascinating Letters to a Young Painter, written toward the end of his life between 1920 and 1926, is a surprising companion to his infamous Letters to a Young Poet, featuring earlier correspondence from 1902 to 1908. While the latter has become a global phenomenon, with millions of copies sold in many different languages, the present volume has been largely overlooked. In these eight intimate letters written to a teenage Balthus—who...

FIAC TIPS : “MARCEL DZAMA: CROSSING THE LINE”, DAVID ZWIRNER BOOKS

MARCEL DZAMA IN CONVERSATION WITH LAILA PEDRO   Marcel Dzama I have always enjoyed trickster characters throughout history and mythology, as a way to escape the hold of the logical. I do from time to time candy-coat what I’m projecting in my work. Like my anger and anxieties around our times. In some of the work, I try to explain it, but in other works I pass over it in silence. I like the viewer to decide what’s happening. I enjoy interpretations—especially misinterpretations....
