Optimism as Cultural Rebellion
November 1st - December 10th, 2011
The Hole is a please to announce the first comprehensive gallery exhibition in the United States by British artist Matthew Stone. The exhibition will focus on the intersections between the ideas, photography and sculptures that define Matthew's work. Alongside his sculptural instillations of photography, he will also be presenting a performance at the gallery titled "Anatmony of Immaterial Worlds" (November 3rd at 9pm) as part of the visual art performance biennial PERFORMA 11.
The title of the exhibition "Optimism as Cultural Rebellion" should be considered a one-line manifesto, perhaps a "mini-festo". Since 2004 Matthew has developed a personal philosophy of Optimism, defining it as "the vital force that entangles itself with and then shapes the future." This timely position permeates all of his activities. Matthew Stone operates as an artist in a total sense: his very being, his community, his lifestyle and its expression dictate the creation of his interconnected works. As well as creating photography and sculpture he works in multiple worlds as curator, philosopher, performer, musician, facilitator and cultural provocateur.

1. A great winter coat or a fur. Not really having a winter in Florida made me realize there are so many great options for winter coats. While most people go for a classic shearling; As well there are parkas, quilted jackets, capes, ponchos, and trenches all made in numerous fabrications that creates more comfort and shields you from the cold.

Whenever Richard Cory went downtown, We people on the pavement looked at him: He was a gentleman from sole to crown, Clean favored, and imperially slim. And he was always quietly arrayed, And he was always human when he talked; But still he fluttered pulses when he said, “Good morning,” and he glittered when he walked. And he was rich—yes, richer than a king, And admirably schooled in every grace: In fine, we thought that he was everything To make us wish that we were in his place. So on we worked, and waited for the light, And went without the meat, and cursed the bread; And Richard Cory, one calm summer night, Went home and put a bullet through his head.-Edwin Arlington Robinson

Walking on Fifth Avenue I saw Lindsay Timberlake a fellow blogger hailing a cab. Her simple but chic look caught my attention. The polka dot shirt with the cropped khaki pant, the red bag; and could not help but notice her platformed Jessica Simpson "Dany" heels. With a stunning beige floppy hat. Sometimes simplicity is key.

The Infamous Prada espadrille. Seen in Prada's 2011 Spring Summer Collection. I know im late but I think this shoe can be so timeless. I want a simple black pair to wear this fall; with a pair of amazingly tailored tuxedo pants by grandma herself and a orange fur! Unfortunately EVERYWHERE has sold out. Im so jealous of the people that owns this shoe. I think I know a secret to getting them.... Ssshhhh I am not telling anyone!
