Yves art show

Tonight we're off to our dear friend Yves' vernissage at Atelier 213 (at 213, rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine,
75011 Paris - M° Faidherbe-Chaligny). His show lasts until
May 10 ... so feel free to stop by.

I especially liked some new collage pieces he has done. That's a recent work (an auto-portrait) at left. You can visit his website here.

Luis strikes again ...

After the Nuit Blanche of October 4, 2008 when more than 700 people attended the installation of Vanity n°12, Visible Invisible (see a video here), the Théâtre de Verre is sponsoring a new audiovisual installation/expo conceived and directed by the visual artist Luis Pasina. Entitled Vanity n°13, Munificence, it will be shown in the City Hall of the 10th district of Paris from April 21st to May 15th.

We're invited to tonight's vernissage so I'll update this post after we return.

Rise again?

To those celebrating today ... Happy Easter!

We are at Odile's godmother's (Geneviève) place today at a party for Anna's (Geneviève's grand-daughter) baptism (took place yesterday). Many of her friends from Italy here and now all into a sort of hootenanny with a nice European mix of languages.

Ever onwards...

After a longish day of "clearing the decks" (joining Puerto Rico 2000 after reading the World Competitiveness Report, setting up PersonalBrain for a personal "wiki-like knowledge and project management" tool or, better said, to support being a "big thinker" and, finally, closure on some consultng and teaching interventions) ... I am ready for a good friday break.

Thanks to our buddy Alain, there is the perfect break tonight - close, cosy and cheap at La Commedia. The event is up on facebook - just click here, if you, dear Reader, want to come.

THIS blog is pre-posterous!

Thanks for visiting this, my "main" (before posterous) blog.

Now you can also take a look at my "sideline" blog - a place for random (or not so random) thoughts, ideas, articles and links of interest, etc:

It is at:

I like it, in part, because of its dead-simple way to add posts ... you just email your post (text, images, videos) and posterous handles the rest. Way cool.

Señor elBulli

World-renowned chef Ferran Adrià was in Paris for a talk at the Centre Pompidou tonight (I got to meet him afterwards and share a quick handshake and question: "Has he been to Puerto Rico?" - the answer was a resounding "¡Sí, joder!"). There was a book-signing afterwards for the French edition of his book "A Day at elBulli".

He gave an interesting talk (in fractured French, but "cute") about his influences, approach and future. I'll add some posts with more info (videos, links) here soon as an update ... so come visit again.
