Here’s a JPEG report from a busy weekend that included a slew of studio visits, and Bushwick’s Beat Nite. I also got a chance to see the new film about Camille Claudel
at the Film Forum. After Claudel was committed to an asylum by her jealous, deluded brother in 1913, the brilliant artist’s life became grindingly dull and lonely. This film captures that, plus the maddening unfairness of her intractable predicament. She remained trapped in the asylum, essentially for being different from other women (i.e., an artist), until she died in the 1940s. I’m grateful that times have changed.
