Rhythms of Modern Life Exhibition

While I was in Miami for Art Basel Miami Beach and Design Miami a couple weeks back, I ducked into my favorite Miami Beach museum the Wolfsonian to have a look around.

This woodcut by Edward Wadsworth was one of my favorites of the show, not just for the woozy geometry and bracing perspective, but because it's so clearly enthralled with the machine age. Entitled "Drydocked for Scaling and Painting (Liverpool)," it's one of several wonderful Wadsworths in the show.

Though there were a couple interesting exhibitions up, my favorite by far was "Rhythms of Modern Life: British Prints 1914-1939." Taking their cues from Cubism, Futurism, and the bloody, whizzing world around them, the handful of artists on show here give a gripping account of interwar English life. Check out the slideshow to see what I did. The show runs through February 28th, so get there if you can.
