Uniqlo Partners With Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to Launch Katagami Collection

LINE THEM UP: With art pretty much always being in fashion, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has teamed with UNIQLO to launch the Katagami UT collection.
Inspired by katagami stencil from the museum’s collection of Japanese art, there are eight T-shirt designs for women and seven for men. The artsy items are being sold in Uniqlo stores and through its e-commerce site, as well as through the MFA Signature Shop. This launch builds upon the 10-year partnership both parties formed last year.
Hand-carved from paper with intricate designs, katagami stencils are traditionally used to dye cotton, silk or other textiles for Japanese garments. MFA curators worked closely with Uniqlo to select patterns from the Museum’s collection of 4,200 katagami stencils, most of which were brought to Boston by William Sturgis Bigelow, who was one of the first Americans to live in Japan. Bigelow played a key part in establishing the Japanese collection at the MFA, which now totals nearly 100,000 objects in all genres. The Uniqlo-MFA collaboration makes its debut 108 years after the MFA held an exhibition spotlighting katagami stencils — not only as tools, but also as works of art in their own right.

Fine Jewelry Options Now Available for Marilyn Monroe Brand

DIAMONDS, ANYONE?: In her role as Lorelei Lee in the 1953 film “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” Marilyn Monroe performed “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” Now Marilyn aficionados can “get the look” from the M.Monroe Collection, a fine jewelry line priced between $ 150 for a simple sterling silver chain to $ 350,000 for the statement piece, the Stellar Cosmos Necklace, in 18-karat rose gold featuring 11 white diamonds in varying sizes.
Many items in the collection include a signature M hangtag that includes a diamond accent mark, representing the Monroe mole on the left side of her face.
The line is available at the M.Monroe web site. Authentic Brands Group, the brand management firm that owns the intellectual property assets for the Marilyn Monroe brand, partnered with Adama Partners for the line. Adama, a New York-based venture firm focusing on the global diamond, gemstone and jewelry industries, last year combined forces with Bain Capital Private Equity and Bow Street to take online jeweler Blue Nile private.
Separately, ABG has a number of other developments in the works for many of its brands.

Ethical E-commerce Site Fashionkind to Launch Fine Jewelry Vault

With the launch of its first capsule collection, comprising 30 accessories, ready-to-wear and fine jewelry items from 11 designers worldwide, ethical e-commerce platform Fashionkind is moving toward expanding its offerings in the sustainable luxury space. Founded two years ago by former investment banker Nina Farran, Fashionkind curates sustainable luxury products from companies that give back to underserved societies and the environment.
The capsule collection includes exclusive pieces such as hand-painted jeans from Rialto Jean Project, sunglasses from Michael Nelson, bags from Khokho, as well as dinner-to-drinks apparel from Indego Africa and Colette Sol. Also included for the first time are five fine jewelry brands — Sandy Leong, Lola Fenhirst, Dana Bronfman, Tejen and Kimberlin Brown — which will be a part of the site’s fine jewelry “vault” launching in September. Prices range from $ 425 to $ 18,000 for a pair of grey and white diamond and recycled 18-karat gold drop earrings.
“I wanted to do something beyond one-offs that would go toward developing the collection and the brand,” said Farran. “After talking to brands such as Edun and Maiyet, we decided to make some changes to the site to better tell these stories. Traditional retailers may not be the ideal partners because these stories

The Last Line Launches Direct-to-Consumer Fine Jewelry Online

The latest entrant in the online, direct-to-consumer fine jewelry arena, Los Angeles-based The Last Line, launching today, aims to be first among many companies offering baubles for female self-purchasers.
Founder Shelley Gibbs Sanders, who designed for celebrity jewelry lines and high-end brands in L.A. for 15 years, is bringing her point of view to what she considers an “over-flooded market.”
“We [she and husband Teddy Sanders] found two holes in the market: there were not a lot of well-designed and high-quality staples, and nothing that felt heirloom, like when it was handmade in the Fifties and Sixties,” she said.
Hence, the decision to offer a two-part collection, called Heart (the staples) and Soul (modern heirlooms). Ranging in price from $ 60 to $ 1,500 and $ 1,000 to $ 7,000, respectively, the two ranges are targeted at women who are just starting to build a fine jewelry collection as well as seasoned shoppers seeking something new.
Like Iconery, Noémie, Aurate and Vrai & Oro, The Last Line can pass on significant savings for expensive products with the direct-to-consumer business model. Gibbs Sanders can also gather customer feedback and react quickly with pieces made in Los Angeles. The site will launch with two drops of earrings, followed by necklaces, bracelets

Tokyo Photographer Kensaku Kakimoto Takes Aim at Fine Art With Taka Ishii Gallery Show

SKY-HIGH ART: As friends, old and new, filed through Kensaku Kakimoto’s “Hyomen” exhibition at the Taka Ishii gallery Thursday, the photographer chatted about his first solo show in the U.S..
“Taka thought it was important to show the work while it’s so pure,” the photographer said through a translator, adding that his fine art is the complete opposite of his commercial work as a cinematographer, producer and video artist. “My commercial work is done to sell products. The motivation is to make products look good whereas this is purely my own sort of spontaneous work. It’s my point of view of the world.”
The Upper East Side gallery will run the exhibition through June, and has his new book “Translator.” Kakimoto recently shot a video for a Super Mario Bros. app and a film for Under Armour about women’s empowerment. In addition to shooting music videos, he often is airborne filming automobile commercials more often than not in Iceland. “Often when we’re doing those shots, I’ve thought wouldn’t it be fun if you could go a little higher, to see the world a little higher — not as high as being in a jet but being as high as in a helicopter,”

Fine Jewelry Brand Ara Vartanian Opens Harvey Nichols London Concession

SPARKLE PLENTY: Shortly after the opening of his first European store in London’s Mayfair, the Brazilian fine jeweler Ara Vartanian is partnering with Harvey Nichols to open a concession at the retailer’s new jewelry space.
A miniature version of the Mayfair boutique, the 110 square feet shop-in-shop concept features signature architectural elements, such as wooden panels and concrete-backed displays that evoke the intimate luxury for which Vartanian’s eponymous label is known.
The concession will stock a selection of jewelry, including a new line to launch for the holiday period, with prices ranging from 500 pounds, or $ 620, for entry-level pieces to 30,000 pounds, or $ 37,000, for one-of-a-kind items. Vartanian is known for sourcing rare stones that are often challenging to set, from iridescent opals to large tourmalines and rubellites. His rock ‘n’ roll two- and three-finger rings allow him to set these bigger stones without creating pieces that are too heavy.
“I’m still understanding the customer, so we are going to have a combination of all flavors in the Harvey Nichols space. I want to have an accessible price point, because being a new brand, I don’t want people to feel intimidated by my one-of-a-kind pieces with the crazy stones and crazy prices,”

L’Dezen Fine Jewelry Launches in London

GROWING UP: L’Dezen, the Hong Kong-based fine jewelry brand, is breaking into the London market via the omnichannel retailer Plukka.
The label will be carried exclusively at Plukka’s London boutique, which recently opened in Burlington Arcade.
Plukka will also stock the label exclusively at its Madison Avenue boutique in New York, which is set to open later this year.
“London is unlike other cities which are keen to jump on all things new. You have to be more established, so I waited five years to enter the London market, to have enough experience and background behind me,” said Payal Shah, the label’s founder and designer.
Shah is making something of a comeback in London: Six years ago she graduated from the University of Westminster, where she studied architecture and urban design.
Shah described her customer as: “a woman in her 40s and very knowledgeable. She has already read about the brand or been to jewelry markets, so she is very specific about what she likes.”
The label is characterized by statement pieces that she creates using sliced diamonds and a variety of colors of 18-carat gold.
Among the highlights are a pair of drop earrings with different shades of sliced diamonds arranged to resemble a leopard pattern,

Boilerplate: The Fine Print, Vanishing Rights, and the Rule of Law

Boilerplate: The Fine Print, Vanishing Rights, and the Rule of Law


Boilerplate–the fine-print terms and conditions that we become subject to when we click I agree online, rent an apartment, enter an employment contract, sign up for a cellphone carrier, or buy travel tickets–pervades all aspects of our modern lives. On a daily basis, most of us accept boilerplate provisions without realizing that should a dispute arise about a purchased good or service, the nonnegotiable boilerplate terms can deprive us of our right to jury trial and relieve providers of responsibility for harm. Boilerplate is the first comprehensive treatment of the problems posed by the increasing use of these terms, demonstrating how their use has degraded traditional notions of consent, agreement, and contract, and sacrificed core rights whose loss threatens the democratic order. Margaret Jane Radin examines attempts to justify the use of boilerplate provisions by claiming either that recipients freely consent to them or that economic efficiency demands them, and she finds these justifications wanting. She argues, moreover, that our courts, legislatures, and regulatory agencies have fallen short in their evaluation and oversight of the use of boilerplate clauses. To improve legal evaluation of boilerplate, Radin offers a new analytical framework, one that takes into account the nature of the rights affected, the quality of the recipient''s consent, and the extent of the use of these terms. Radin goes on to offer possibilities for new methods of boilerplate evaluation and control, among them the bold suggestion that tort law rather than contract law provides a preferable analysis for some boilerplate schemes. She concludes by discussing positive steps that NGOs, legislators, regulators, courts, and scholars could take to bring about better practices.

The Kids Will Be Fine

The Kids Will Be Fine


A bracing, hilarious manifesto for motherhood as it ought to be: spontaneous, loving, and just a little bit selfishPre-chewing toddler food. Flash cards for two-year-olds. Endless hours of school gatherings to sit through in smiling silence. How did motherhood-which even under the best circumstances comes with a million small costs and compromises-become a venue for female martyrdom, verging on a sort of socially approved mass masochism? How did the great natural force of maternal love get channeled into a simpering, slavish adherence to an inflexible social norm, a repressive sentimentality festooned with hideous pastel baby accessories? How did the bar to good motherhood get set so high that it’s impossible for modern mothers not to feel like they’re failing?It doesn’t have to be this way-and Daisy Waugh is here to tell us how to opt out of the masochism cycle. Part feminist manifesto, part hilarious rant, The Kids Will Be Fine asks modern mothers to stop confusing love with subjugation. This is a book for moms everywhere who are fed up with the constant stream of unsolicited, impractical, guilt-inducing advice directed their way; for moms who have always secretly suspected that children would turn out okay even without handmade organic snacks or protective toddler headgear. With biting wit and lancing observations, Waugh gives women permission to slough off the judgments, order in some pizza, and remember that motherhood is also about the mother.

Trisha Williams and Gamer Girl Pinups: Fine Art and Women in the Gaming World

In a very particular world, dominated by a very particular breed of men, Trisha Williams decided to step to the forefront and give this dangerous milieu exactly what it needs. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the world of video games.

Ten years ago, Trisha Williams was working at Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment in Arizona, where she met her now partner and boyfriend, Joe Unger. Both individuals have lead a life fascinated by video games and comic books. It wasn’t until the company at which they were both employed decided to lay everybody off that they took their hobbies to the next level. This became an opportunity to create their own liberating path towards a future that combines successful business and genuine passion.

Sure, it took a few years before the two finally joined forces. Trisha Williams moved to Seattle where she was a professor of Game Art and Design at the Art Institute and Joe took himself to Los Angeles. Eventually the two fell in love. After experiencing consistently tumultuous relationships with already established studios, they both said “Let’s pack everything, move to San Diego and start our own company.”

And that’s when Pigeon Hole Productions was formed.

2015-06-19-1434741129-9601507-BlackWhite.jpg

To some, video games and comic books are primarily for the purpose of entertainment and distraction. But there exists a laudable side to these intricate hobbies that are easily deemed fine art and an operation of science. When I spoke to Trisha, I asked her what she would say to the many people who do not believe that video games qualify as fine art.

2015-06-19-1434741174-5888789-fixed1.jpg

“It is an unbelievable amount of work and goes far beyond anything I’ve ever done in fine art. Everything still applies. You need to know perspective, color theory, the value of silhouette. You have to know your composition and predict how people are going to view a particular object. Viewers are not only looking at your art, but they are interacting with it. They can make something happen with it. There is also this almighty role you have to play when designing. Every aspect of it needs a reaction. You have no idea what the viewer is going to do so you must adapt to every situation, all the while maintaining this beautiful artistic environment.”

2015-06-19-1434741211-3302237-fixed2.jpg

Although Trisha has been in the gaming and art world for over 10 years and has become something close to a master of design and technique, it hasn’t been easy digging a groove into this world for herself. Unfortunately, like many industries, the percentage of women in charge is almost always minute compared to that of men. Even after Trisha graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead with a BFA and moved on to get her Masters of Interactive Technology from The Guildhall at SMU, professors would still question the durability of her role as a woman in this gaming world.

“They would pull me aside and give me a overview of all the obstacles I was going to run into. Basically they were warning me. It always ended with them asking “Are you ready for this?” Even when I was well into the field and attending expos and conferences, it was always assumed that I was the girlfriend of someone and not a creator myself. When I was teaching in Seattle, I would have a student ask “Well, what do you know about video games?” My response was always something along the lines of, “Well, sit down. Try not to get an F and I’ll let you know.”

Like any committed artist, Trisha continued creating games and comics despite small turmoil. And one rainy day, while she combatted her indoor boredom, she decided to start her own webcomic. Unlike the majority, this webcomic featured girls as the gaming stars. Within a month of starting the webcomic, Trisha had online publishers looking to put it on view. “Gamer Girl Pinups” disregards the cliches of who is usually behind the controller. The webcomic reflects Trisha’s sharp, colorful and visionary illustration style and the proposal of an open, unguarded comic world. There are five main girls- Tanooki, Eve, Nessa, Tru and 9Key- each with their own panache and relatable attributes.

2015-06-19-1434741256-799491-fixed3.jpg

2015-06-19-1434741317-6958666-fixed4.jpg

In a constant battle between her fine art side and her digital art side, Trisha settled on combining the two, which in the end, stirred up this modern idea with a clear message:

“It doesn’t matter who you are, what you look like or what [imaginary] category you think you belong in, everyone should be accepted into this gaming and comic culture. It’s a world of art and creativity. Just be you.”

Ask the Art Professor: How Do I Find the Right Graduate School for Fine Arts?

“My friends and I are all beginning to look into graduate school and what our future may hold for us as fine artists. We range in age from our mid-20s to mid-30s and are at all at different stages of our adult life. We all dream the dream of being strictly a studio artist, and have considered the advantage of being professors one day. We all want to apply to the right graduate school to help set up our future, and don’t want to be in a school that doesn’t fit us. What advice do you have for students like us? How do we approach the hunt for graduate schools?”

Before you apply to graduate school for fine arts, you have to honestly ask yourself what your long-term goals are. Do you want to teach at the college level? Do you want to show in commercial art galleries? It may seem premature to think that far ahead, but it’s important to think through and answer these questions before you leap into applying to graduate schools. When I was getting ready to apply, I primarily thought about graduate school as a place where I could mature as an artist, and continue to push myself creatively. I wasn’t thinking ahead in terms of my future, and didn’t realize that one of the most critical goals of graduate school would be making professional connections. No artist can build a successful career on their own; they have to make key contacts that will launch their careers in the right direction.

2014-11-24-4598663018_1468c5f055_o.jpg

On top of that, I was not prepared for how obscenely competitive the process would be. Applications are continually growing at a rate that cannot match the scarce number of openings. When I applied, I assumed that I had done everything “right” up until that point: I had graduated with a high GPA from one of the top art schools in the nation; I had been consistently teaching and exhibiting my work professionally; my portfolio was mature and cohesive; and I had outstanding letters of recommendation. I was confident enough that I announced my departure at my teaching job before receiving the decision letters.

I received five rejections, was put on two waiting lists, and was offered admission only at my safety school. I was in complete shock. I was so ready to stop working and return to school. Having already quit my teaching job, it never even occurred to me to start over and re-apply the following year. I felt like I had no options, so I enrolled at my safety school with extreme reluctance. To this day, I regret that decision. Experience has shown me that there are doors that never opened for me because of that decision. If I could do it all over again, I would have taken off only one year (I took off four) after art school to clear my head, and then started the application process, knowing that it would likely take several years of applying before I was accepted to a program that I really wanted to be in.

In retrospect, I can see now that there are five main aspects to research when applying. There are other considerations like studio space which might seem important, but actually the five factors below carry far more weight.

1) The faculty.
Do extensive research on the faculty. What kind of artwork do they make? Does their work engage with a contemporary audience? What kind of venues do they show their work in? Have they had solo exhibitions at major galleries? Is their studio practice active? What is their online visibility? What is the turnover rate of the faculty and administration? (A high turnover rate is a red flag.)

2) Location.
Location matters in graduate school. For example, if your ultimate goal is to show in New York City art galleries, going to school in Kansas is not a good choice. The professional contacts you make will be based in the city the school is in, and these contacts can launch you right into that art community.

3) Teaching opportunities.
One of my colleagues told me that her biggest mistake was attending a graduate school that did not have teaching opportunities for their graduate students. The consequence was that when she started applying for college level teaching positions, she had no teaching experience and had difficulty getting hired. If teaching at the college level is a priority for you, make sure that the school you attend provides teaching opportunities for their graduate students.

4) Current student work.
Viewing the artwork being made by current students is one of the best ways to get a sense of the school. Can you envision yourself having a lively creative exchange with these students based on their artwork? Look for diversity in the student artwork; it’s not a good sign when all of the student artwork looks the same. If possible, take a tour of the school and talk to some current students in person.

5) Alumni.
What are recent alumni doing? Where are they showing their work? Peruse their resumes online and try to get a sense of what kind of careers they have. Do they teach at the college level and if so, at what kinds of colleges? Do they have full-time or part-time teaching positions?

Remember, choosing a graduate school program is all about finding the right fit for you. Every artist has different goals, and a program that is right for one person may not work for you. Figure out where you want your artistic career to be in 20 years, and then find the program that will help put you on track to get to there.

Guerrilla Warfare: The San Francisco International Hip Hop Dancefest at the Palace of Fine Arts

2014-11-18-GroovMekanex_Ceination.jpg

Closing night of the 16th annual San Francisco International Hip Hop Dance Fest opened to the classic groove of The Police in a bleak, reflective mood – “when the world is running down, you make the best of what’s still around” – to which the five classy gentlemen of GroovMekanex in denim-blue button downs and white hats responded in crisp and witty style. The other local acts on this program did not fare quite so well, largely eclipsed by the imported talent.

Curated by legend-in-her-own-time Micaya, the festival takes hip-hop out of its customary competitive arena and on to the stage of the Palace of Fine Arts – which might sound like an incongruous setting for a gritty street art form, but the packed house on Sunday night hollered their appreciation as if we were all hanging out together on the corner of Mission and 24th scoping out a sidewalk battle.

2014-11-18-BoogieMelikaDez.jpg

Ensemble performances were punctuated by two brilliant solo turns, both from Los Angeles: the first by the feisty Toogie-saurus (Teresa Toogie Barcelo) who channelled Nina Simone and the searing saxophone of the late great King Curtis in “I Put a Spell on You,” the second by the masterful Boogie Frantick to a hypnotic score by Flume and Chet Faker. Frantick’s silky moves – whether embodying ocean waves in silhouette against a backdrop lit sea-blue, or a graffiti artist using invisible walls and his own body as a canvas – and his brilliant stop-motion achieve a poetry that touches on tragedy as easily as it does the lighter side of romantic infatuation in No Diggity (“baby, you’re a perfect 10”).

Sacramento’s Greathouse of Dance (G.H.D.) boasted some impossibly young talent strutting their stuff like far more seasoned artists, with no narrative or props, and no costumes – apart from some formidable armor sported by the final quintet – just the moves straight out of the studio and off the street. They made it all look easy, didn’t take themselves too seriously, with flashes of brilliance.

2014-11-18-_ELI2451.JPG

Storytelling by the other ensembles proved a decidedly mixed bag. San Francisco’s Funkanometry tried to convey the angst of life in an asylum (both literal and figurative, according to program notes) but the army of young women in white, with painted faces that looked like the makeup artist from Twilight had a seizure halfway through the job, did not seem to have been given coherent persona to convey, and mostly came across as a bunch of hysterical teenagers emoting.

2014-11-18-_ELI4005.JPG

The four bewitching goddesses of Zamounda Crew, from Paris, went through a breakneck series of costume changes in their roguish attempt to skewer the French obsession with haute couture, but were ultimately at their most powerful in street clothes.

2014-11-18-EmbodimentProjectJamesKnox.jpg

2014-11-18-_ELI3306.JPG

Despite the welcome presence of three singers onstage, and the rousing athleticism of five bare-chested dancers, Oakland’s Embodiment Project tribute to African American male victims of hate crimes and racial profiling fell somewhat flat. The names of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin and Oscar Grant inscribed on the dancers’ jeans and the heartfelt rendition of Gregory Porter’s politically charged “1960 What?” about the 1967 Detroit riots made an obvious point, as did tired tropes like fists in the air, but the choreography meandered aimlessly.

2014-11-18-Ritmos2_Age_ncia_Espetaculum.jpg

2014-11-18-Ritmos_Age_ncia_Espetaculum.jpg

In sharp contrast was the buildup of tension by the Brazilian Ritmos Family in their taut and mesmerizing “Fusion of Move.” Ritmos’ five male dancers integrate martial arts and contemporary dance moves seamlessly into the hip-hop vernacular to create images of desperation and hope. The result conveys not just attitude, but hints at backstories and a compelling narrative of transformation.

2014-11-18-_ELI3685.JPG

London’s BirdGang Dance Company told an equally striking tale in “Vice,” an Orwellian nightmare in which an office worker struggles to escape from his desk but finds himself glued to it in bizarre fashion. Once free, he is persecuted by hooded figures to the ominous buzz and throb of a score that melds electronic music with Tom Waits, horror film composer Christopher Young, and Radiohead. A lovely nymph (the luminous Kendra Horsburgh) hovers, in a spotlight, always out of the young man’s reach. Lit cigarettes and cigarette smoke blown with admirable precision by the malignant spirits add further menace to the intense, dramatic choreography. Remarkably, the entire piece echoes one of the three sculpted panels of the Grecian frieze that encircles the rotunda of the Palace of Fine Arts, entitled “The Struggle for the Beautiful”: Art, embodied by a beautiful nude woman, stands in the center while idealists struggle against the materialists, conceived as centaurs, who seek to crush Art.

2014-11-18-Struggle_for_the_Beautiful.jpg

2014-11-18-_ELI2933.JPG

BirdGang’s triumph did not entirely make up for the misbegotten spectacle of Mind Over Matter’s portrayal of an Amsterdam bordello. Choreographers today are marvelously adept at fusing all manner of dance styles with hip-hop – why not burlesque? But this literal, ham-fisted exhibition of ladies in pleather, garters, sparkly bras and stiletto heels prancing about and servicing two hapless gentlemen under the watchful eye of a platinum blond-plaited, whip-wielding madam was conceived without a trace of irony, subverting the considerable power of hip-hop to convey righteous, youthful anger and rebellion.

2014-11-18-_ELI2856.JPG

This piece ranks with the insidious MTV evangelism, propagated by the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna, Madonna et al who persuade their fans that images of semi-clad women gyrating and fondling themselves on stage and on camera somehow empowers all women. That many in the audience roared at the overt depictions of ladies of the night performing oral sex on johns while in the splits, and then receiving oral gratification from the men while doing headstands in the splits, merely suggests that they (audience) have not fully explored the array of adult channels offered by their local cable providers. Ballet to the People imagined the graceful statues of Weeping Women – another extraordinary ornament of the Palace of Fine Arts that stand guard at each corner of the Palace’s Corinthian columns – shedding copious tears on Sunday night at the leaden, unfunny female objectification.

2014-11-18-PoFAWeeping_1788.jpg

If Mind Over Matter was shooting for satire or parody, towering examples can be found in the dance scenes in 1966’s Sweet Charity, choreographed and directed by Bob Fosse, the 1969 film of which the creators and the otherwise terrific performers of Mind Over Matter might find illuminating.

Inevitable, perhaps, that an ambitious festival that unites troupes with such disparate backgrounds and manifestos will present unevenly. Hip-hop is indisputably the most potent dance form on the planet today, the most likely engine of artistic revolution, and while the battlefronts must be diverse, what Micaya and other guerrillas around the world are doing to infiltrate opera houses and concert halls is essential to winning the war.

MFAA: The History of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Program (Also Known as Monuments Men)

MFAA: The History of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Program (Also Known as Monuments Men)


The Holocaust was the systematic murder of six million European Jews by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party. The horrors of the Holocaust have documented been many times. Even those that were not killed, mutilated, or starved in concentration camps were stripped of their citizenship and their identities. The Nazis did not stop there, though. Hitler, in his quest to build an empire, planned and executed the most extensive theft of art and cultural treasures in history. A group of art historians, museum curators, scholars, and others with an expertise in art accepted the enormous responsibility of traveling to the front lines of World War II in an effort to protect art before it could be stolen or recover the art that fell into the hands of the Nazis. Even more lent their expertise when the fighting ended, remaining in Europe for years after the war was over. They were called “Venus fixers” by the troops but have since come to be known as the Monuments Men. Acting on orders from General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who had the backing of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, many of the Monuments Men – and women – put their lives on the line for art. By doing so, they preserved not just paintings, sculptures, and tapestries, but a significant portion of the culture that makes life worth living. As Mikhail Piotrovsky, the director of the State Hermitage Museum in Russia, said, “Art belongs to humanity. Art is what makes us human.” This book dives into the fascinating history of one of the greatest treasure hunts of all time! HistoryCaps is an imprint of BookCaps Study Guides. With each book, a brief period of history is recapped.

Why Do We Keep Saying ‘I’m Fine’?

Co-authored by Mary Wilson

Beyoncé is a talented multitasker. How do I know this? Who else can sell over 1 million records without an ounce of promotion while at the same time being a mother and wife? Yeah, me either.

Through recent post-Met Gala events recently captured on an elevator security camera and released to the word, we caught a glimpse of the less-than-fabulous part of her life, or maybe just the real part. In the video seen around the world, we witness her younger sister, Solange, attacking and yelling at her husband, Jay Z. A security guard is forced to restrain a clearly enraged Solange, while Beyoncé barely attempts to stop the madness. This altercation ended with Beyoncé leaving the event with her sister, Jay Z taking a separate car, and a barrage of unanswered questions.

But to some, the strangest part of the whole scene wasn’t the brother-in-law/sister-in-law feud but the fact that Beyoncé just stood there. It was the fact that a couple of minutes after the physical fight in the elevator, she walked out like nothing had happened.

In the days following the event, Beyoncé was spotted courtside at a Brooklyn Nets game with her husband, apparently happily in love. I am a huge fan of Beyoncé, but I found it very odd. In the midst of this controversy, she just sat there and pretended that everything was OK? Now let’s be clear: B never said “I’m fine,” but in my opinion, her smile did.

So what is really going on here? Was this just a random family feud that ended with hugs and kisses, or was that video a peek into a larger issue that is cleverly being covered up for the sake of family and image? I think the latter.

In a world where celebrities (and non-celebrities) will sell their souls for a few dollars and Instagram “likes,” Beyoncé has always set herself apart by keeping her private life private. With her fame, her music telling girls to “run the world,” and her participation in campaign initiatives such as “Ban Bossy,” she has aimed to empower women and mothers. With that being said, at what point does keeping her life private and saving face in the midst of turmoil tarnish her message to women?

I believe it does, since it tells women everywhere that no matter how chaotic your life may be, you must act like you got this down — as usual.

As women and mothers, we are expected to deal with issues at home, privately, and never let the world know the truth, for fear of being viewed as weak or imperfect.

Were you too tired to feed your kid that meal of protein and whole-wheat pasta that you promised yourself you would make, so you bought pizza instead?

Did you leave your iPhone on top of the car (again) because your brain isn’t working today? That’s a totally true story, by the way (unfortunately).

Did you go to work and pretend you hadn’t just had a fight with your husband?

Are you seeing a therapist but lying about where you are from 7 to 8 p.m.?

Do you have no problem pretending in public that you don’t care about what you weigh, when in reality every time you take a bite, you think about how you need to stop taking bites?

Why are we like this?

Like it or not, I don’t know why women are shocked. We all do the same thing Beyoncé did. And we do it every day. She has her image, her family and her career to maintain. We’re really not that different. Granted, I don’t get to go on my private yacht all the time, but I digress.

We are constantly surrounded by examples of “perfect” women feeding us false examples that are impossible to achieve. In reality life happens, and life is full of failures and lessons learned. How are we supposed to look up to a celebrity like Beyoncé who brushes these life lessons under the rug and walks away with a forced smile? It’s conflicting that all of us shout “girl power” from the rooftops while simultaneously wearing the same fake smiles.

You know what I would’ve loved? If Beyoncé had gone off herself. If we’d been able to hear that audio. If Beyoncé had cursed out Solange or Jay Z or, better yet, the paparazzi waiting outside!

I would’ve said, “Finally!”

In “Pretty Hurts,” a song on her newest album, Beyoncé sings, “We try to fix something, but you can’t fix what you can’t see. It’s the soul that needs the surgery.” The question is: When do we women drop the façade and admit what’s really wrong?

Granted, in the real world, that might mean addressing a less-than-perfect marriage or a less-than-perfect career or just admitting, “No, everything is not fine, actually.” When was the last time you heard that from a friend? Probably never, because as much as people look on in awe as Beyoncé pretends that everything in her life is fine, most people do the same thing every day, programmed to just keep going and keep smiling.

Why do we all feel like we have to maintain perfection, especially black women? Is it the constant stream of social-media comparisons to keep up with? Is it the fact that we were taught to always hold it together, even when it’s all falling apart?

When do we drop the façade? When do we black women stop thinking that allowing ourselves to feel is weakness? When do we stop saying “I’m fine”?
