“Curare” is the general term for a toxic substance made from the roots, bark, stems, and leaves of any of several tropical trees, vines, and plants (Chondrodendron tomentosum, pictured). Because the poison causes temporary paralysis, in the early 1900s doctors used curare to aid in surgery. What the surgeons didn’t realize then was that while curare made it impossible for patients to move, it did not eliminate pain or put patients to sleep. These patients silently had to endure every cut of the knife! Photo: Wellcome Images

To our followers in Spain-“Esther Ferrer. Intertwined Spaces” is now on view at Museo Guggenheim Bilbao. One of Spain’s leading pioneers of action art, Ferrer considers performance to be the “art that involves time and space with the presence of the audience—an audience that is made of participants rather than viewers.” Most of the works in this exhibition have never been shown before, and will be activated in special ways through performances and interactions with visitors.

You can almost smell the delicate scent of lilac in this painting by Otto Franz Scholderer. Flower still life painting enjoyed enormous success in the late 19th century, and Scholderer was a successful German exponent of the genre. This spray of lilacs against a neutral two-toned background is representative of his considerable skill. See and smell the flowers in Gallery A: http://bit.ly/2Hg2NPQ
