MFA Boston to Debut ‘Kunstkammer Gallery’

Mon, 06/02/2014 - 12:26
Rare is the human who can resist a cabinet of curiosities—those bewitching, eclectic assortments of man-made and natural wonders that flout traditional taxonomies. The Museum of Fine Arts Boston is inaugurating one of its own in the Kunstkammer Gallery, which opens Wednesday. Among the objects that will be on view in the intimate space are exotic natural materials such as amber, ivory, and coconut shells; paintings on copper and hardstone; and virtuoso metalwork, such as clocks and automata. Follow up a visit to that whimsical space with a trip to the MFA’s newly renovated gallery dedicated to Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings and sculpture, which will also be unveiled on Wednesday.

Quote of Note | Annie Leibovitz

Paul Giamatti as an Insane Museum Curator? Make It Happen!

Fri, 05/30/2014 - 12:57
Picture it: A Fellini- and Buñuel-flavored tale of a museum curator forced to face dwindling visitor numbers, harsh economic realities, his crumbling sanity, and...a giant sloth! We were sold on the premise of graphic novelist Paul Hornschemeier's planned animated short even before learning that the crazy curator, one Gordon Boonewell, will be voiced by Paul Giamatti. Saturday Night Live's dazzling Kate McKinnon has also signed on to the project, entitled Giant Sloth, which Hornschemeier is looking to fund through a freshly launched Kickstarter campaign. "Uncompromised by the studio process, Giant Sloth combines the psychologically rich world of literary graphic novels with the all the possibilities of motion and sound that animation allows," notes Hornschemeier. "It treats its characters not as clowns shuffling for an easy laugh, but as people. And as giant sloths. Giant sloths are people too." continued...
