Time to get the fans running and the restless explorations going.
- Soon after celebrating the amazing performance of Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born, it’s time for another glorious meeting between acting and singing on screen. Miley Cyrus is the main act in one of the latest episodes of Black Mirror, the Netflix series that changed the way we look at how we use technology. The 5th season has its big release on June 5th, but the trailer was enough to get our enthusiasm kicking.

- Lima :: Limon Poetry quiets the spirit while dizzying the mind in unpredictable ways. In her latest book, Natalie Scenters-Zapico tells the story of life as a woman in the U.S. and Mexico, focusing on the often-tested resilience of women. With unflinching language, she spins the lyricism of borders of all sorts, of bodies colliding in sensual, but mostly violent ways. The cruelty of men against women, the hardships immigrants face on the other side of the border, the rejection of the status quo and the desire for change and healing are not easy subjects, but Zapico’s poems turn them into a wildly illuminating trip.
- love and angst As usual, there’s no way one can count their main cultural cravings without passing through London. The British Museum has put on a show dedicated to the work of Edvard Munch, this subversive Norse father of Expressionism whose Scream keeps speaking to us all, like a self-portrait of our times that regenerates itself every morning. This beautiful print exhibition made in collaboration with the Munch Museum in Oslo can be visited until July 21st and is the best introduction in the artist’s work you could treat yourself to.
- Sheila Metzner. If you haven’t heard about this American photographer, now it’s time to discover her work. In the 1960s, Metzner became the first female art director of the advertising agency Doyle Dane Bernbach, and she got to work with famous photographers like Richard Avedon and Diane Arbus. She began by photographing her husband and their seven children, and she went on to have a 50-year career that spans from celebrity portraits and fashion photography, to still life and landscapes. The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography in Moscow now offers a retrospective and a great pretext (if ever you needed another one) to visit Russia.
