Exhibition Hockney – Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature @ Van Gogh Museum In Amsterdam

Hockney – Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature demonstrates the influence of Van Gogh on Hockney’s work, exploring both artists’ fascination with nature, their use of bright, contrasting colors and their experimentation with perspective. This exhibition is the first extensive monographic Hockney exhibition to be organised in the Netherlands. The exhibition features works representing all of the techniques in his oeuvre. None of the works have been on display in the Netherlands before. Hockney – Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature will be on view through May 6 at the Van Gogh Museum 1070 AJ, Amsterdam. photographs courtesy of Van Gogh Museum (Amsterdam)

A Visit To The Rodnik Band's Chateau Marmont Bungalow Hideaway

Autre got a chance to step into the whimsical and surreal world of The Rodnick Band, and what better place for the United Kingdom-based fashion-label-cum-art-collective than the famed Chateau Marmont where Philip Colbert, the brain child behind the brand, and his wife Charlotte, have been holding court for the past month at their private bungalow. The mid-century Craig Ellwood-designed bungalow was a temporary diorama replete with The Rodnik Band's wide range of delectable offerings, from lobster rugs to raw meat tables sitting on cigarette legs and pop art furniture. Philip modeled the brand's range of tailored suits, one with an exploding popcorn pattern. Charlotte donned a beaded and sequined dress inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's famous sunflower paintings. At the end, Philip took us for a spin in a BMW 7-series vinyl wrapped with his signature fried egg pattern. photographs by Oliver Maxwell Kupper
