SIMPLY ASK

 

Brooklyn Museum’s new app ASK allows visitors to instant message their questions directly to curators and museum staff about artworks. The next time you’re stumped with an image, just ask! The app is still in a test phase, but hopefully it won’t be long before museums around the world start offering the service.

ÔMEGA III, BY SARA NÃO TEM NOME

 

Brazilian visual artist Sara Não Tem Nome showed last year a different aspect of her work: music. Her independent-released debut album Ômega III  brings great songs about youth despair, with folk and lo-fi touches.

MÁRIO DE ANDRADE’S HOUSE

 

Brazilian writer Mário de de Andrade’s residency in São Paulo is mentioned in several of his texts. The house was reopened to public visit in May and hosts the permanent exhibition A Morada do Coração Perdido, curated by Carlos Augusto Calil. It is well worth a visit!
