“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

At the Menil This Thursday with Nestor Topchy

 Auspicious coincidence doesn't even begin to cover it. This is exactly the right time for me to be doing this dialogue with Nestor, who is diving deep into early Christian art and making icons of regular folks, exhibiting them in this incredible way at the Menil (I live in a Menil house here in Houston). If you're anywhere near you should come. It's going to be great. 

Something very special happens when you see this art. Go and take a look if you're in Houston. The Menil was never white cube-y but this is really something else.
