Art Rua 13: Rio Underground

Apparently there is more to Rio than the soccer, the Pope’s visit, the slums and a titillating nightlife. We know this: it’s the art scene. And this year is more important than ever

Who is Rhoda?

Home 2 (USA). The deep country of Northern California, with the folks. There is this new tradition that developed in my absence. The front porch. Every evening after work the lady and man of the house coalesce their daily grinds

public heat

This week the temperature has risen to record highs. With scarce AC, neither in my apartment nor rarely in a bar, it is beginning to feel like Africa. Two days ago my refrigerator decided to quit. Walked off the job

a seven minute scene

Any other night I would be conjuring up some name-savvy, industry-worthy article about fashion, food, film, or philharmonic while scoping out the alleys between Venice and Milan. Tonight, I have decided to take dark turn and cover some raw material
