Readers and viewers experience art and culture through my video reviews, which take them to exhibitions, artist’s studios, collector’s homes, social events and fairs, such as Miami’s Art Basel.  They meet influential decision makers like Gary Tinterow, a senior curator at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. He reveals his contemporary vision for the classic museum in my Artnet.com profile Mod Mod Met.  While my book essays take you behind the scenes, in Paris 1962 (Rizzoli), for example, you witness the glamorous chaos of French haute couture in the early 1960s.
