    Lives of Girls and Women
    by Alice Munro (Canada, Nobel Prize 2013)
     

    This book, rather more a collection of would-be stand-alone stories with a common principal character, invites the reader to witness the life and world of Del, a young girl whose experiences and encounters in growing up form the basis of each "story" or section as she grows from a young girl into womanhood. The reader is compelled to experience the struggle and wonder of growing up that is common amongst all of us, in a story that is peppered with extraordinary circumstances and trials that, thankfully, relatively few of us ever have to experience.

    Lives of Girls and Women is a coming-of-age story, full of the tumultuous times one goes through on the road to growing up, the universal truths about growing up and the tragedies that are suffered by far too many of us. More than that, it is the story of place and of the complex relationships that form between those with whom people live and experience life. It is about life itself, in all its beauty and ugliness.

    Venue: Laura's place.

    A Guided Visit to the Exhibition
    "Christo and Jeanne-Claude:
    Urban Projects"

      

    Join us on Sunday, February 4 for a guided visit of the exhibition “Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Urban Projects.” This is the first retrospective museum exhibition since the 1980s of the urban projects created by Christo and Jeanne-Claude. A unique opportunity to gain a comprehensive insight into the creative process of this unclassifiable artist couple.

    To evoke a number of urban projects by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the exhibition seeks through a careful selection of around eighty original works, whether or not these were ever carried out, ranging from Wall of Oil Barrels, Rue Visconti, Paris, 1961-62 up to the important urban project The Gates that Christo and Jeanne-Claude realized for the city of New York in 2005. These urban works of art were created by temporarily appropriating buildings, monuments or public places with a deeply symbolic value.

    The works are selected and displayed in such a way as to emphasize the crucial importance of drawing in the genesis, evolution and aesthetic crystallization of each of the projects. Christo sees drawing as “a path towards the real” and indulges this passion daily.

    The exhibition presents a series of emblematic works, from the first schematic sketches, usually in small format, to the final drawings, complex and often large-format collages in which color, textural effects and volume bring out their visionary character, offering a real foretaste of the actual in situ projects.

    After the visit, those who wish to may join us for a drink or a coffee in the neighborhood.

    Please note that this event is limited to 15 participants.
