If you’re enough of a Scorsese fan that even a teaser trailer featuring the above-mentioned fundamental rock ‘n’ roll symbols excites you, you may also get a kick out of Hyperallergic’s coverage of Scorsese Collects, the MoMA exhibit of 34 items in the director’s collection of movie posters. The exhibit will likely be a good way to plunge yourself into the recent cultural past, providing respite from your usual routine of scaling the mountains of Kim Kardashian’s face. Oh, that’s not a part of your routine? Well by all means, check out this post on The Creators Project about French artist Gregory Chatonsky’s “continuously moving art piece”… across simulated mountains made of images of Kim Kardashian’s ubiquitous visage.
