We took a trip to MoMA last week to see some Van Gogh ("The Sower," killing it), some Kirchner ("Self-Portrait with Cigarette" maybe better than anything else) and some George Lois Esquire covers in a little corner. We left with the distinct sense that MoMA is thoroughly nailing it right now, especially after almost falling asleep next to Guston and a weird European couple on the flop pads in the atrium. But nothing was more surprising and satisfying than wandering into the museum's New Photography 2008 exhibition and seeing FADER contributor Mikhael Subotzky as one of the two selected artists. Subotzky shot the photos for the BLK JKS cover story in FADER Number 52, and the photos on view at MoMA, from his Beaufort series, are the same ones that inspired our creative director Phil Bicker to contact him in the first place. So, congratulations Mikhael and keep up the fine work.
