Art historian Dr. Richard Shiff from the University of Texas at Austin offers insight into one of Matisse’s great contributions to Modern art in this lecture. Matisse internalized the process of representation allowing his own desires and imagination to shape the subject matter. For Matisse the representational painting in studio was linked to the human body, its organized environment, and its domestic comforts. Matisse’s work is also marked by the surfaces he decorated, the tools he handled, and the layers of color he applied. The world became what he wanted it to be in the studio.

The McNay’s 60th Anniversary Film Series continues with Douglas Sirk’s 1954 romantic drama starring Rock Hudson as a reckless playboy who inadvertently causes the death of a local hero.
Born in Germany but residing in New Mexico, guitarist Ottmar Liebert plays Spanish-style guitar (not quite Flamenco) with a track record of uproarious success. With 38 gold and platinum certifications, Liebert’s 27 career LPs are a literal gold standard for New Age music.

With a nod to exquisite corpse, “You Are Here” highlights a collaboration between Tim Kerr and Brian Phillips. Kerr studied painting and photography at UT–Austin and played a key role in Texas’ early punk scene as a founding member of Big Boys and other bands. Louisiana native Phillips illustrates his mantra “One man’s junk pile is another man’s art supplies” with puzzle-like constructions built from reclaimed wood. A tribute to inspiring icons, the duo’s joint project involved Kerr painting portraits of Rosa Parks, Evel Knievel and many more on surfaces pieced together by Phillips.
A romantic coupling as the foundation of a band can mean bad news; just ask Rumors-era Fleetwood Mac how that arrangement holds up in the face of meteoric success. But, Berkeley’s Street Eaters appear to have a working model of how to juggle it all, while avoiding the six-second bubble gum appeal and tradeoff melodies of the many twee, indie pop couples out there. On their new release, Blood::Muscles::Bone, Megan March and Johnny Geek churn through 10 songs of stripped-down punk, relying on March’s drums and Geek’s bass to propel Street Eaters’ formidable energy. With SA’s Sheila and the Chilaquiles, and Smokey Robinsons.
There seem to be two kinds of comedy fans in 2014: those to whom a Chelsea Lately credit is a come-on and those to whom it’s a warning flag. In the case of Josh Wolf, this binary proves as dumb as most. Though at 40-plus he looks every bit the Mannish Boy Frat Daddy, and his style—confidently delivered observations about sex and other bodily functions (what before the ’90s alt/club split was commonly known as “comedy”)—is definitely panel-ready, his actual life experiences as a single dad give his material and outlook a broader appeal than any niche he might appear to fit.
