Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay

I was really lucky to be asked to assist curator Susan Brown on the Sonia Delaunay exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt (10 years in French Immersion paid off). I've liked Sonia's work for a while, but I didn't have any idea how prolific she was. The show includes everything from paintings and costume designs to over thirty years-worth of textiles. The prints are insanely beautiful! Even working with tiny thumbnails made me gasp, so you can imagine how it felt to finally see the stuff in person, not to mention install it. I learned how to 'tjuz', which I'm sure will be a valuable life skill.
