Antoni Gaudí’s first residential work—the Casa Vicens—is now open to the public, making it the perfect time to explore the famed architect’s lasting imprint on Barcelona.

lynching memorial and legacy museum examine america's history of racial injustice

in april 2018, two separate sites dealing with the theme of racial injustice opened in montgomery, alabama. designed with MASS design group, the national memorial is an outdoor monument situated on a six-acre space where visitors walk a path through america’s history of racial injustice. meanwhile, just over half a mile away, the legacy museum serves an indoor narrative museum with audio, exhibits, art, videos, and comprehensive content about the legacy of enslavement through contemporary issues of mass incarceration.

both projects have been initiated by the equal justice initiative (EJI) — a nonprofit organization that provides legal representation to indigent defendants and prisoners who have been denied fair and just treatment in the legal system. in 2010, EJI began investigating thousands of racial terror lynchings in the american south, many of which had never been documented. this research produced %u200Ba report, published in 2015, which documented thousands of racial terror lynchings in 12 different states.

in april 2018, as a way to memorialize this history, EJI opened the national memorial for peace and justice — a site described as the nation’s first memorial dedicated to the legacy of enslaved black people, people terrorized by lynching, african americans humiliated by racial segregation and jim crow, and people of color burdened with contemporary presumptions of guilt and police violence.

There's a ceremonial feel to the latest collection from Brooklyn-based ceramicist Helen Levi.

First, there are the goblets — a type of stemware more often associated with medieval banquets or religious rituals, to which Levi gives a resolutely modern look by color-blocking and employing a pristine matte finish. Second are the jugs, which might look as though they'd been excavated from a silty river bed were it not for the delicate palette, ranging from stony buff to rose pink

The Pewter Collection by Christopher Gentner is a family of furniture pieces defined by their materiality and formal qualities. 

One crucible at a time, pewter is melted into liquid form and hand coated onto the steel structure, creating the other-worldly surface that makes each handcrafted pewter table unique. Through its manifestation of conceptual thought and dream like movements expressed through Christopher’s knowledge of materials and craftsmanship. The material finish on each piece turns into a creation unlike any other, embodying the surface of a lunar landscape and a one-of-a-kind sculpture. Available in the simple coffee table, Landscape Coffee Table and Console. All prices on request.
