Brainbreaker of the week: Which portrait of Jackie Kennedy was made by Rockwell and which one by Warhol? Please submit your answer in the reply space below. Have a Nice Day!
Both portaits can be seen at The Norman Rockwell Museum! A museum, we, at Mimi Berlin would like to visit very much!
“Inventing America: Rockwell and Warhol is the first exhibition linking Norman Rockwell and Andy Warhol, two iconic visual communicators who embraced populism, shaped national identity, and opened new ways of seeing in twentieth century America.” (read more nrm.org

Recapping it all a tiny nutshell
Like the title says; Artist First is created (read all about that on the site) to make the artist important again (as opposed to the modern-day importancy of curators, trends, status, money etc.) and to show the “expressive power of the individual artwork—and with it, the artist’s autonomous position” (quote via Edo Dijksterhuis at artslant.com)
We, at Mimi Berlin think The Artist First, Paper Only is an exhibition which is certainly worth your visit!
During the Venice Biennalle there is more to see than the art exhibited at the Arsenale exhibition spaces and Giardini della Biennale. For instance, at Palazzo Fortuny the exhibition Intuiition can be seen. It’s a collection of historic, modern and contemporary works, related to the concept of intuition, dreams, telepathy, paranormal fantasy, meditation, creative power, hypnosis and inspiration. Intuition is the last in a series of 4 exhibitions at the Palazzo Fortuny cocurated by Axel Vervoordt and Fortuny museum director Daniela Ferretti.
Similar to the The boat is leaking. The captain lied. exhibition at Fondazione Prada held in another Palazzo in Venice downtown, the Intuiition exhibition also took us on a tour throughout the 3 stories high building. Each floor is transformed into something one would call an installation: each floor set in a different atmosphere, nice!
