Travel Blogs from Bilbao

Yoko Ono vs. Georges Braque

A travel blog entry by vincent.michon


Each of them has a whole floor at the Guggenheim in Bilbao. Each of them had a long multi-disciplinary career, ranging from painting to music and "performances" for one and ballet for the other, and also sculpture. But it seems to me one is much more respected than the other, maybe because he's been dead for 50 years. Yoko Ono's work is very ...

Horrible night in the hostel; Good day in Bilbao

A travel blog entry by ericjon97


... there was a temporary exhibit of Yoko Ono’s work on the top floor. She is weird. Like, really weird. I didn’t realize she considered herself an artist, but I’m not sure that I do. She just does a lot of weird things and then calls them art. It certainly wasn’t my style anyway.

A travel blog entry by colerumbough

wasting my time. Probably the strangest thing I saw there was a video on loop
of a close up shot of ...

Day 5 - Bilbao & San Sebastián

One piece was of a bunch of things you might find in a college students backpack slung out over the floor. It might have taken five minutes to set it up. My favorite exhibit was that of Christian Marclay named The Clock. He took scenes from various films that show ...

A place called Bilbo

A travel blog entry by jessie-7


... website watching videos about him. We all knew it was coming but I'm still really sad he's gone. He was so lovely and huggable, like a third grandad for everyone. But at 95 and after the life he's had he needs a rest. After all, Mandela didn't just transform a country, which is a big feat in itself: he transformed the world. He was a symbol of hope, forgiveness, sacrifice, compassion, love - all characteristics of another extremely important ...
