ED DAWSON in Mexico

...from the house and grounds (now museum) where Frida Kahlo lived (Leon Trotsky stayed there as well, before he fell out of favor with Diego Rivera)... Leon Trotsky museum (formerly his house and grounds). He lived here in exile, where he dictated books/memoirs, raised rabbits and chickens, and collected nopales (cactus) from the nearby countryside. He, his wife and grandson survived an assasination attempt in their bedroom by Stalinist agents (you can see bullet holes above the bed). A second attempt a few months later was successful -- he was ice-axed to death, by a Stalinist, in his office (see photo).

cARTed voyageDepuis l'automne je déploie mes antennes curieuses et gourmandes pour aller à la rencontre du réseau, de ceque font les uns et les autres et pour découvrir de nouveaux lieux et de nouveaux artistes. Ca part un peu danstous les sens et ça nourrit ma culture du tourbillon. Du vernissage de la très grande bibliothèque de ClaudinePuget à Caen, à la découverte des belles peintures de Victor Grillo dans son atelier à Paris; de la rencontre avecJean-Jacques Le Roux au Centre Colombier qu'il dirige à Rennes, où j'ai découvert le très intéressant travail deMuriel Bordier, à la visite de l'expo de Christophe Cuzin à Besançon; de l'Artboretum d'Argenton-sur-Creuse,au vernissage de l'expo M@il@rtX-change de Sandra Chapron à Varembert; de la visite de l'école des Beaux-Artsde Dijon avec Carlos Castillo, à l'improbable 6ème Lâcher de Fanfares de Parthenay; de l'extraordinaire soiréede concerts et performances Factal Musik au Théâtre des Cordes à Caen, avec entre autres Thierry Weyd,Mami Chan, Joël Hubaut et Léa Lebricomte, + plein d'autres amis, au vernissage de la magnifique expositiondes Requins Marteaux à Nantes; de la visite commentée par Bob Lens du très grand musée d'art moderne deDen Haag, au vernissage de Multipistes à la galerie Meneer de Wit d'Amsterdam. Bien sûr j'en oublie.Et l'aventure continue.

It is the opening of "Multipistes" which include the Trojandonkey' project of Stephen Wilks, the event takes place in the Meneer de Wit gallery and it's the occasion for me to see Stephen whom I had met forthe first time at the cARTed' encounter in Forbach on 2002.
