With their tiny private art museum in Oyama, Japan, Hiroshi Nakamura and NAP architects have questioned the way in which we experience art. The Roku Museum space they have designed exists at one with it's surroundings instead of disrupting them. The experience of viewing art therefore becomes a more peaceful and considered one.
Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm Mclaren opened the pioneering Sex fashion boutique in London in the 1970s. They were leaders not only of punk style but the sound too.

Phyllis Galembo has made over twenty trips to sites of ritual masquerade in Africa and the Caribbean, capturing cultural performances with a subterranean political edge. Her impressive body of photographs depicts the physical character, costumes, and rituals of African religious practices and their diasporic manifestations in the Caribbean and South America. Masking is a complex, mysterious and profound tradition in which the participants transcend the physical world and enter the spiritual realm. In her vibrant images, Galembo exposes an ornate code of political, artistic, theatrical, social, and religious symbolism and commentary. - image and text courtesy of Steven Kasher Gallery and Phyllis Galembo
