Museum visit

Yes, it was a busy day as my friend and I made our final art stop at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where they were featuring a show by Nayland Blake and Nathalie Djurberg.

I really enjoyed the queer works of Blake and especially found the installation work Ruins of a Sensibility full of personal memories and a strong sense of nostalgia crept over me. It conjured past experiences of staying at a nightclub until it closes and then stumbling home drunk wearing some crazy and skimpy outfit. Of course, I played a Peggy Lee record.

 The works of Nathalie were quirky, yet disconcerting with some rasist imagery in the stop motion video pieces. I would have liked to sit and watch them, but I was exhausted.
