Grotesque in Antwerp; Manu Katche

I suppose most art lovers wish they could be in Venice for the Bienniale right now or at Art Basel, but if I could I would hurry to Antwerp to catch the last days of the Ensor/Goya/Redon show at the Royal Museum of Fine Art.

Then I'd head off across the Old Continent on trains and trams, inspired by Manu Katche's pensive song "Number One," chasing an ever-receding horizon into lilac-grey space. (For some reason the link is not working right now, but if you go to YouTube, type in "Manu Katche," you'll get the video for "Number One," and then you'll hear and see what I mean. Bon voyage a toi!)
