Barbara Kruger downtown new york
To build excitement for the new downtown location of the Whitney, the museum commissioned three artists, Guyton/Walker, Tauba Auerbach and Barbara Kruger, to contribute to an ongoing public art project on the site of the future building. The artists stays true to their aesthetics but must use printed vinyl as the medium to mold and cover the fences and surrounding area on the corners of Gansevoort and Washington St. The current Barbara Kruger installation of iconic black and white word images debuted over the weekend and is visible at both ground level and from the High Line, New York.

Today is Saturday, has the Blaak’s market! And HAS SUN! o /
So, we went to the market that is, by the way, around the Blaak Station .
Well, we have to buy the best cheeses in the world! Fact. And in this market there are numerous options. Today I tasted a cheese pesto. Impossible not to be good, two things I love! Imagine a molten mass? Dunno, is an idea that come now in my mind :p
I bought my favorite, the Strongest, the skin black. This cheese is delicious, it’s heaven in your mouth!
After we visited the famous church of Rotterdam, Sint Laurens Church - Laurenskerk, one of the only buildings remaining in the bombing of WWII.
Now they are restoring the church.
Once in the plaza that is in front of the church has a statue of the famous Erasmus of Rotterdam. I often joke that was my husband, hehe, since I love this city and I feel so at home, you will see that I have lived here and had a great love. Yeah, I’m super romantic, does not ruin my dream! hehe o/
We decided to lunch at the restaurant nearby that has pancakes. It is a restaurant on the middle of the sidewalk, on a rounded shape (oh, why is it hehehe?).
I went last year with Ada, Lule and Vivien. Very good! I recommend! Paradise of Pancakes!
I ordered one with bacon and cheese, accompanied by a Heineken. Typical Dutch.
After our delicious lunch, we walk through Downtown. That way there are some cool stores, such as Rituals (I love this store, I had seen in Barcelona and had gone mad! Has a body lotion called Heaven, Heaven is the same. Its packaging is orange and its scent is wonderful. His is the super soft! Amo! bought, of course).
Well, for more information, visit the website of Rituals and find the closer store from your home!
We walked for a few thrift shops, I enjoyed it! haha.
Ah! We went to a fantastic shop: American Apparel. I loved it, wanted to buy everything! The colors of pants, stockings, tights. Jesus!
I bought a black dress, super lightweight, cute. Debora then showed me what she bought, and one thing was a blanket that you can use in many ways, as even a dress, amazing. Now I wonder: how did not see it? haha. Well, I’ll sure go back and buy one for me! I fell in love.
A few more walks and we found a store of materials for painting, drawing! Paradise for my mother specially. The store is very close to Coolsingelstraat, where there is a McDonalds on the corner.
Well, the store is very cool, has lots of materials! I bought a box of crayons + a block of blank paper for 8.90 Euros! It was almost for free! Want to start painting right now!
Then we move to Nieuwe Binnenweg Straat, because I had arranged to get a shoe. The store is very cool. The seller is an Englishman very nifty, and the funny thing was that he just found just a foot of the pair of the shoes. The shoe is cute, it’s Vans style, no laces, black printed with cherries. It’s Underground. For 10 Euros. Imagine if I resist it? Obviously I bought.
But the funny thing was that we were all looking at the store the other foot, haha. Until he told me to pick another day, he would look right, somewhere had to be!
So today I picked up, and there was the pair! :D
The store is very tiny little, almost beside the Rotown Bar and has very nice things. Admittedly, I go back there sometimes.
The journey continues, we walked by some shops and see some Uggs. I’m in love with those boots. I wonder why they do not exist in Brazil. I mean, in Porto Alegre, which has a very rigorous winter.
Ok, as it has, I’m seriously thinking about buying one. But not today. Let’s bust the credit card more on the end of the trip hehe.
We continue our journey, going into shops, buying some things.
Then we went to Raoul. Right there in the Beurs, almost opposite the C&A in Coolsingelstraat.
We ate a lemon pie that was delicious!
Shame things close very early here. 18hs everything closes! Boredom arises and a certain dread of what can be done! The deal is to go hiking, find another place open, some restaurants are still open, some bars, pubs obviously.
But then we thought that since we’re going to Amsterdam tomorrow, we want to go early, then ok, we go back home.
Just before we went to Rotterdam Centraal station ‘cos Debora wanted tosee a train ticket to Paris. I still stay here, I still have friends to see. imagine just five days in Holland? Impossible! Paris will be postponed yet, at least in fashion week I will go, one day I show up to see my cousin there and feel the whole mood of fashion week.
But for now, still has much to do here.
Anyway, Amsterdam tomorrow! o/
