Fine Arts Alumna Kim Gordon's Memoir Reviewed in The NY Times

Kim Gordon, Sonic Youth’s Antifrontwoman, on the Band and Breakups

By Joe Coscarelli 
 
Kim Gordon knows her reputation well. “Detached, impassive or remote,” she ticks off in her new memoir, “opaque or mysterious or enigmatic or even cold.”
 
But rather than dispel the persona she built up over 30 years as the antifrontwoman for Sonic Youth, Ms. Gordon hoped to make it three-dimensional in her book, “Girl in a Band,” to be published on Tuesday by the HarperCollins imprint Dey Street Books.

Fine Arts Alumnus Kour Pour in Architectural Digest

KOUR POUR’S FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION OPENS

By Michael Slenske
 
Growing up in southwestern England, Kour Pour got an early education in textiles from his Iranian-born father, who owned a carpet shop during the late 1980s. “They were always around,” says the artist, who has incorporated his intimacy with woven materials into his own work. Pour, now based in Los Angeles, made the first of his paintings of traditional carpets for his college graduation show using found images from museum and auction catalogues of Oriental rugs.
