NYT review on the exhibition: Ghosts in the Lens, Tricks in the Darkroom

N.B.: Festival goers shouldn't miss Resfest 2005 in London, Small Press Expo in Bethesda, the World Beard Championships WHY BERLIN! No. 4 in Berlin and Maschinenfest 05 in Krefeld.

Oh, and in other most thrilling artsy news, UbuWeb is back online, the Outré Gallery finally launched its new website and the Italian Colletto Fava mountain just got a tad pinker & fluffier. Weeeee!

And a final note to all Helvetistani readers: Even if you don't care the slightest µ about surrealism, make sure you don't miss this exhibition - featuring a breathtaking motherload of cher monsieur René Magritte's works. Also, the Fondation Beyeler painted the gallery walls in the most enchanting shade of lilac - probably the most flattering colour to exhibit Magritte's works. Reduced admission fees on Mondays and Wednesdays.
