Now, you realize if you go to this tonight instead of coming to see us, we’ll probably never talk to you again. But if you have that all straightened out in your head, then go on, go see Maira Kalman and Chee Pearlman in conversation at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. Kalman, an UnBeige fave, and Pearlman, another UnBeige fave, will be chatting about Kalman’s embroidery work as featured in the exhibition “Pricked: Extreme Embroidery.” Of course she’ll also be talking about her new book/opera The Principles of Uncertainty. And maybe she’ll even talk about mocha cream cakes.
If you can’t make it tonight (or if you’re a die-hard UnBeige loyalist–thank you), “Pricked” runs until March 9, and we must recommend this fabulous show with a long list of artists from 17 countries and some of the zaniest, most gorgeous needle-work you’ve ever seen.
