Matisse exhibit invites visitors to sit a while among the ‘wild beasts’á

By Elizabeth Miller

Not many people in the world get to live with a Matisse in the living room — to look at it over time and let it slowly explain itself. So for Matisse and Friends: Selected Masterworks from the National Gallery of Art, design staff filled the galleries with arm chairs, sofas and end tables topped with vases or a clock, even a bird cage. Get comfortable, they say. Spend a while.

Fifty shades of grey

Jon Bassoff makes reality a fluid concept in his new horror novel, ‘Factory Town’

By Josh Gross

“Someone said once that if you read a mystery book, even if it’s poorly written, you’ll keep reading because you want to find out what happened,” he says. “But for me, I stopped reading those kind of books because I got more interested in narrators, in unreliable, crazy narrators.

Adrian Belew’s killer app

All things considered, Adrian Belew has had a pretty weird year

By Dave Kirby

After amicably stepping away from Trent Reznor’s reformed Nine Inch Nails project in June 2013 and being politely excluded from Robert Fripp’s reformed King Crimson later that year, esteemed guitarist and sonic disrupter Adrian Belew now finds himself currently on tour with his long-tenured Power Trio, and poised to unleash his experimental project called Flux, a music and visual art app that he’s been working on for five years.

‘Dear White People’ is a must-see for us all

Somehow, that’s the sensation I got watching Dear White People, writer/ director Justin Simien’s declaration that he didn’t come to half-ass it. Audacious, overly ambitious, challenging and understandably flawed, Dear White People may be the most important conversation about race you’ve never seen, heard or had.
