On the edge of the Contemporary Wonderland. Exploring the Art Collection of Barbara and Aaron Levine PART 2

Author: Ruxanda Renita

Published on: 07.08.2016

Barbara and Aaron Levine are exciting collectors of contemporary art who reside in Washington DC. Their collection is taking you into a Derrida- style journey of aesthetics. Each piece in their collection is placed there for a reason; it is in a cerebral debate with you - the viewer, yet in a complete harmony with the collection. It feels like Philip Glass, Franz Ferdinand, Tiesto and Mozart met and the concert makes sense. Highly conceptual, their collection took me completely by surprise. It is Sunday, late afternoon. I step out of my Uber. There is a Georgian (American Georgian) house in front of me. For a moment, I feel as if I am back to Atlanta, GA. The door opens. Barbara and Aaron welcome me inside, reminding me of the Southern hospitality. The Georgian vibe is persisting, yet the art… It transposes me with the speed of dream to outer space… More
