4932-eng

The Museum of World Culture Göteborg, Sweden, opens Destination X on April 29,2010.

Destination X is an exhibition about people’s motivation to move around in the world. It’s about traveling out of neccessity, curiosity, lust and boredom. About tourists and migrants, global families, business travellers, refugees and adventurers. A grand mix of objects, contemporary art, film, photo and personal stories about the dream of a better life - elsewhere. The exhibition continues until December 2011.

My piece, Sacred Wands, will be there.

The History of Beads

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

Lois Sherr Dubin recently reissued her book, The History of Beads and let me know that my work is included in it.

Since its publication in 1987, The History of Beads has become the world’s definitive guide for bead lovers, collectors, and scholars. In this new edition, bead expert Lois Sherr Dubin updates all chapters with the latest archeological discoveries, opens a new chapter on contemporary adornment since the 1980s, with a focus on glass beads, and best of all, adds 200 beads to what is considered by many to be the piece de resistance: the eight-page gatefold timeline that guides readers through the remarkably rich history of the world’s first form of adornment.

The latest revisions include the oldest bead ever discovered, dating to 108,000 b.c. and explain why beads worn on the human body were the original media communication system. Updates include the numerous maps scattered throughout, which have been modernized and are now in color; 72 formerly black-and-white images have been replaced with full color; and 125 new photographs were added to this edition. Beautifully packaged with a new cover, this revised and expanded edition is a must-have for devotees of the first edition and for the next generation of bead obsessives and aficionados.
