For the lucky Bostonians this Paris exhibition for Gauguin's 100th birthday will travel to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, showing not only his paintings, but his amazing wood carvings (which I would die to see in person), manuscripts, photos AND a collection of Marquesan Tiki implements and carvings.

C'm on kids, don't tell me that no one in the area is taking advantage of having the chance to see these artifacts! It's not all about partying, ya know...

"Paul Gauguin’s years in Tahiti produced his most powerful and mysterious canvases, full of brilliant color and exotic subjects. This international exhibition traces Gauguin’s career from his departure for Tahiti, his “studio of the tropics” in 1891, until his death in the remote Marquesa Islands in 1903.
This dazzling exhibition received rave reviews in Paris. Don’t miss your chance to see “Gauguin Tahiti” at its only U.S. stop—at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston."

Bigbro,

It's only a couple hours drive to Beantown from my home, so I could head up there no problem. I can pick up a program for you, if you like. It might not be until mid-May, which is when I have plans to be in Boston.

This Gauguin cat had a 14 year old mistress/girlfriend in Tahiti. (different time, different place)

Just the facts.

The only show is in Boston? That sucks, I'd love to see it over here on the west side.

Thanks Greg, that would be grand.

I am surprised though, it does seem that we have no Bostonians on Tiki Central? A town that brought forth Jonathan Richman and houses the Museum of Bad Art must have some Tiki agents in waiting behind it's red brick facades.

An article on the Gauguin exhibition:

Gauguin's Paradise: Only Part Tahitian and All Fantasy

The article mentions another interesting exhibition.

My folks live in Boston and have one of them fancy memberships to that museum. I'll see if they will go, in my place, take photos (if allowed) and grab all the free goodies possible.
I'll call today to find out...

I'm a vegitarian and I still eat the "chowdah" everytime I'm back there.

The folks are a little wishy-washy on going, though I think they will go, I just don't know how soon.
I convinced them that going, absorbing all the artistic information and grabbing loads of free stuff would help out my carvings in addition to satisfying your curiousity.
I'll let you know if they decide to go. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

YEAH! Jonathan Richman rawks! Let's also not forget the musical giants SSD, The Freeze, the FU's and (drumroll please...) GANG GREEN!

BigBro,
Program is on the way. Hope it gets to you, as I sent it snail-mail, which can take 6 weeks.

I am sorry, but I have been on my day job of filming German TV movies since July and will have to do so til the end of October. I have a roommate who sends me my mail, but cannot sign for registered mail. It's best to send me stuff with regular mail, so it just gets dropped off.
Thank you so much for sending it, I am sorry I am in exile.

(..and I am MOST sorry that I cannot attend the Hukilau, AGAIN %$&@!!!)
