Rhizomia Dance, Box 66, Feb 28, 1948


Another Rhizomia event, this time in a box that is clearly labeled from a time and subject perspective.

Rhizomia parties are well known for pushing the edge, that’s why Joel probably didn’t miss a single Rhizomite event.

There’s a Parisian motif throughout this time, lingerie, Moulin Rouge, Folie Bergère, and edgy portraits adore the (papered) walls.

Some of the above outfits were recycled at the Mardi Gras Ball a few months later.

And then there was Rhizomia Dance, Feb 28, 1948, COP
Artists, Parisian style, cigarettes included, Feb 28, 1948, Rhizomia, COP (Printed)

Just looking at all the wall decoration, one can only imagine how much time was spent organizing these social events. There’s clearly drawing and painting talent working in the background here.

There is one more significant subject added to this box, we’ll look at this next time.

Cheers !
