Our dance critic will retire at year's end. It's been a delight reading Alastair these many years. I still have so much to learn about dance as an art form, and Alastair's pieces have served as a master class for me and for many others:

At war, in pearls. I went up to Salem, Mass. for the opulent "Empresses of China’s Forbidden City" at the (with a little digression for a Chinese soap opera with 17 billion views)

Red alert: Rem Koolhaas lecture on Yugoslav architects in Lagos, at MoMA on Oct. 4. (As Koolhaas obsessives will know, he has unpublished books, c. 2000, on both MoMA and Lagos...)

Huge news in France today. to formally acknowledge the role of French army in torture during the Algerian War. France's colonial brutality in Algeria has never been so addressed by a French president before; this is not unlike Chirac's "Vel d'Hiv" speech in 1995

Fall preview! Delacroix leads the charge, but much more I'm excited about this season: Pontormo, Corot, Hilma af Klint + R.H. Quaytman, Sterling Ruby, Charline von Heyl... Plus some free advice for Klaus Biesenbach
