B.Helvetica

Ilene Strizver shared more insights and best practices with her readers at CreativePro.com. On the topic of Helvetica, she writes, “Helvetica was designed primarily for display, and for this reason, has appropriately tight letterspacing. Yet the design does hold up at smaller sizes – but the spacing does not.” Read more about using Helvetica at any size.

In Brazil? Ofri Cnaani of SVACE will perform this week at Inhotim Institute! On December 4, she will perform Frequently Asked/ Que Lugar É Esse?  Ofri writes:

“For Frequently Asked, I worked with 40 of the museum gardeners and maintenance staff in order to create 40 private walk-throughs, which bring to the front not only the art but also the role of Inhotim staff as a translators and mediators. During Frequently Asked, each gardener will lead one visitor in a one-on-one tour, offering personal narratives or interpretations of classic or modern canonical artworks and their spatial and environmental manifestations.”

On December 5, Ofri will perform Recalculating Route, which she describes as such:

Recalculating Route is a participatory performance taking the shape of geographically-based group messaging app that encourages self-guided wandering through call and response prompts and allows participants to re-experience familiar or unfamiliar sites, whether they are cities or museums.”

And last but not least: Keith Mayerson will exhibit new paintings with Marlborough Chelsea at NADA Miami Beach 2015.
