Alexander Wainwright reporting from the Met Gala Monday May 5th 2015. 

I’m delighted to say that I did find my invitation to the Met Gala and so, was able to attend the Metropolitan210_2009-Gala-Invitation---UVa-Library Museum of Art last night. Invitation in hand, I mounted the steps of the wonderful museum.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

 

I must confess that I felt slightly out of my element because the focus was very much on the very latest fashion for the most beautiful women you might ever meet.  As a landscape artist, I find it impossible to resist almost any form of art and the female human form is one of the most engaging.

On The Red Carpet

 

 

 

On the red carpet, I saw the most amazing art forms reminding me of beautiful, vividly coloured, exotic birds.

But an important artistic question has arisen from the gala. Much of the display was dedicated to the influence of China on fashion and art from a westerner’s viewpoint.

As I understand it, people have questioned whether it is right and proper for the “west” to create its interpretation of Chinese art or if that is culturally insensitive. I can’t pretend to know the answer.

Spirit of the Dead Watching Paul Gaughin

 

I can only think of the painter Paul Gaughin and his lovely paintings of the islands of the south seas and its people. Didn’t he bring his interpretation, as a French man, of their customs and art  What do you think?

  1. Surely the human condition includes art,music,design and the creative process from every culture and every mind that wants to be heard or seen. After all,colour and form,sound and shape are owned by no-one. We are all enriched by sharing perspectives with one another.

    • Absolutely true! Art belongs to everyone. I’ll be posting a another blog by Alexander in the next few days about the Venice Biennale where every other year, art from every country is exhibited. Amazing place to be!
