Weekly Twitter Round-Up

Cindy Sherman's retrospective opened today at MoMA-- lots of Twitter activity all week around it.

A hectic couple of weeks with lots of great events, openings, and visits with students and friends. The reading break also allowed me to catch up with some of the marking that is now rolling in along with some much needed early spring cleaning. Now if only the weather would cooperate and bring some warmer days. I am also finally settling into the planning phase for our now booked-to-capacity field school to Paris and Documenta in June! We have a terrific group assembled and there are plans to record our activities through a collaborative blog that I will link here when the time comes. I am just now getting ready to sit down and begin watching the Oscars, both on TV and also via my Twitter feed (which is as much fun as watching the event). I am hoping The Artist sweeps the awards as predicted! In the meantime, check out some of my favourite tweets from the past week:
