#theateroftheworld at the #guggenheim is #chinesecontemporaryart 3.0, an astonishing survey of political art reflecting seismic changes in China over the past 30 years. As a former student of Classical Chinese painting, I was bewildered at first by the obvious lack of historical art reference, but no, it’s there. In #secondlife by #caofei , the artist’s avatar, China Tracy, floats through a cityscape built on Second Life, an online platform. Anyone with internet and an avatar could enter her futuristic, utopian world. The Confucian desire for oneness with the natural world that underscores Classical Chinese landscape painting is also embraced by Cao Fei, one of only three female artists in the show. But instead of ink and brush on silk, she uses code to build a virtual reality where there is no limit to personal freedom. #artadvisor#cromwellartllc#secondlife

Visited the #Guggenheim today!! Highly recommend people to go see their current exhibit - Art and China after 1989 - Theatre of the World. I learned a lot today - there were many things I didn’t know about the artists during China’s turbulent growth period. If you’re a fan of Ai Weiwei, they currently have some of his work as well!✨✨✨

@Regranned from @earthlove777 - Rp @2plantbasedbodies It's easy for us to look at animals as food, since we don't see them as a whole. We come across their bodies in our local grocery store, chopped up, and ground up. Without their skin & fur. Most times, without their eyes and heads connected to their bodies. We call them meat, chops, wings, steaks... things like that, so that we can forget that these beings we consider food were once living breathing feeling earthlings, just like us. Why do we want to pretend that these innocent gentle animals are some other thing and not what we buy chopped up in a supermarket? Just so we can stay comfortable? We can keep pretending that the chops aren't the same cute pig we would cuddle if given the chance? And that the steaks aren't that sweet gentle cow that we love to watch frolic in the grass like a huge puppy! It's past time for you to wake up. Stop pretending! These are animals you are eating. They want to live. They scream in pain. They cry tears, and tremble in fear. They are smart! They feel! They want to be with their babies. Same as you and me! Love them as the animals they are when they are whole, breathing feeling and bringing you joy while being alive. Choose a vegan life. One that is better for your health, and that of the animals too. Make the connection.
