If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere. I’m talking about New York. The city that never sleeps (or just 3 hours every night) you might imagine I’m still recovering after 7 days and 6 night New York fashion week. Sleeping is nothing but a waste of time in New York. Damn I love that city so much and can’t wait to go back. Those who visited New York before might know what I mean. Every time you see or hear anything about NY your heart starts beating faster, you feel the energy and the adrenaline. I love to travel, travelling is one of my biggest passions in life. You might understand why I am so super excited about the project Station to Station (started in NY).
A Nomadic Happening that connect artists, musicians and creative pioneers with diverse communities, pushing art and culture outside of institutional constraints. A public art project made possible by Levi’s. Station to Station will raise funds through ticket sales and donations to support non-traditional programming at seven partner museums around the country. Over the course of three weeks this September, a train will travel from New York City to San Francisco, making ten stops along the way. At each stop, Station to Station will curate leading figures from the art, music, culinary, literary, and film worlds for a series of cultural interventions. Sef (Dutch music artist) and Tess (Dutch actress) are joining the trip. From today on I’ll be reporting on what they see, taste, hear and experience. So stay tuned!
Sef: ‘We’re traveling with musicians, artists, filmmakers from all over the world. The trip kicks off in New York where we have dinner with Jonathan Kirby, Levi’s number 1 menswear designer who told us about Levi Strauss that made the same trip from New York to San Francisco. On the second day we head to Brooklyn for the kick off party at Riverside Studios. An amazing location with an unbelievably gorgeous sunset. This trip is all about bringing the unexpected together, throw a bunch of creative people on a train and see what happens. I pretty good idea, if you ask me. The party was great. There were no rules and it was all about surprises and meeting other people and experiences. There was video art, installations, hipsters and hotdogs. ‘It’s so bizarre that we get to be here and be part of this project. I can’t wait for all the other random meetings and artsy experiences that are coming!’
I’m as much as excited about this trip as Tess and Sef are. Stay tuned about their experiences at lindatol.com.
