"From Here on Now," Oct 20, 2016 - May 7, 2017 at the Phillips' Collection - Arlene Shechet (1951-), New York City Artist Influenced by Buddhism, and Suspended between Tradition and Independent Thought


Recommended Posts

Arlene Shechet (pronounced SHECK-ette) currently has a display at Washington DC's Phillip's Collection entitled 'From Here On Now" (a word play on "From Here on Out," playing around with the definition of the future).

The little audio recording on The Phillips Collection's website almost sounds like a parody on a Valley Girl artist, but it never deviates enough from being dead-serious to, well, not be taken seriously. 

"From Here on Now" <--- There are two of these videos, on the right side of the screen (you may need to scroll down a bit) - after you click on the text, click on the center of each one.

I'm not convinced Shechet is a great intellect, but I do believe she's a great creative thinker. For whatever that's worth to you (it could be worth anywhere from something to mock, all the way up to something to study), Shechet is worth a thought, even by the most skeptical of viewers, and she's absolutely worth a minute of your time, because, come on, what the hell else are you going to do with the next minute of your life? Why not learn something about Arlene Shechet?
