This Week
On The Avenue

  • Girl of the Week

    Our girl of the week is Viola Davis, who made history Sunday night by becoming the first woman of color to win an Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series. Opening with a quote from Harriet Tubman, she went on to make an incredibly inspiring and emotional speech about the lack of diversity that exists in the entertainment industry saying, “You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there … The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity” .

  • Blast from the Past

    Nicholas Kirkwood is firmly returning to the 1980s with his “10” collection, a made-to-order line of shoes inspired by the decade’s video games, movies and toys, which will premiere at London Fashion Week. Featuring elements from pacman and star wars amongst others, the shoes are the perfect whimsical accessory for fall’s retro trend.

  • Art Scene

    Isa Genzken returns to David Zwirner this week for her second solo show at the gallery in 8 years. The exhibition, which officially opened last week, will feature a variety of the German artist’s 2D and 3D pieces including a selection from her “Schauspieler (Actors)” series, which she first introduced at her 2013 MoMA retrospective to great acclaim.
