Weekly Twitter Round Up

Twitter pictures streamed in this weekend from MOCA's Annual Gala
art directed by Marina Abramovic. Controversy circulated all week around the event (see Tweet below)

Now that the craziness of midterm marking is winding down and my short bout with the flu is subsiding, I am finding some time to enjoy the gorgeous fall weather we have been having here in Vancouver. Nothing like a weekend spent catching up with loved ones and indulging in the luxury of reading the weekend papers cover to cover to help recharge the batteries! I am also looking forward to another conference trip this week- this time to Washington D.C. to attend and give a paper at the ASEEES (Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies). I hope to get a visit to the National Gallery and maybe stroll the Corcoran Gallery of Art while there. Here are some favourite tweets to check out-- have a great week!
