About the show..........


Opinionist: Sunday in the Park with George

Photo: Joan Marcus It’s fitting that the elegant revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s musical Sunday in the Park with George – currently at Studio 54 following an acclaimed London run – brings the latest advances in animation and digital projection to the stage. After all, the show takes as inspiration Georges Seurat and his 19th century masterpiece A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, which was itself informed by cutting-edge...

Alexander Reford
Jardins de Métis : Making an Historic Garden Hip
Wednesday, February 27 at 6pm
New York School of Interior Design
170 E. 70th St, Manhattan

"A great-grandson of Elsie Reford, creator of Les Jardins de Métis in Quebec, since 1995 Alexander Reford has stewarded a complete transformation of the Reford Gardens and its historic buildings.. In addition to positioning the garden as a leader in nature conservation in Canada, he co-founded the International Garden Festival, first held in 2000 and today considered one of the world’s premier garden design events. This past fall, the festival focused on the myriad ways in which sound impacts the experience of the garden, with collaborations by landscape architects and sound artists. Reford’s lecture tells the story of Les Jardins de Métis/Reford Gardens and the International Garden Festival, and addresses the challenges of making a historic garden appealing to a new generation of visitors."

“CHINA HERE AND NOW”February 29 – April 5, 2008
Madelyn Jordon Fine Art is pleased to present the first exhibition and sale of important contemporary Chinese photography in Westchester, entitled “China Here and Now.” The exhibit includes works by some of China’s most renowned artists, including Hong Hao, Rong Rong, Wang Jinsong, Wang Qingsong, Zhang Dali, Cang Xin and Zhang Huan. This groundbreaking exhibition, “China Here and Now” opens on Friday, February 29 from 6-8pm, and will be on display through Saturday, April 5, 2008. A gallery lecture by independent curator, Taliesin Thomas, Director ART ASIA will take place on Wednesday, March 5th at 7pm at the gallery (free and open to the public).

Chinese contemporary artists have a compelling story to tell. Layered, enticing, and provocative, Chinese contemporary art has exploded on to the international art scene with vision and vigor. From biennales to art galleries to the dramatic pauses between leading auction sales, contemporary Chinese art is infusing the global art market with its unique psychology, all while China leads the globe into the twenty-first century with magnanimous growth on all fronts.

Photography has traditionally been used as way of recording important rites of passage in Chinese society - the individual as a baby, the individual with parents, with siblings, with members of extended family, or with participants in some collective event. During the tumultuous years of the Cultural Revolution photography lost its right as a means of capturing such unique moments among family and friends. During that time photos were used for strict propagandist purposes and unofficial photography for remembrance sake was considered unacceptable.

Over the last thirty years this situation has completely reversed. With a rousing new sense of freedom at their fingertips, contemporary Chinese artists have transformed the medium of photography from a stationary form of documentation to an outright colorful and risqué expression of the times. Chinese artists are boldly turning the lens toward culture itself, capturing the incredible growing pains and dramatic changes taking place in every area of Chinese society.

The work of Rong Rong, as represented by his “Ruin Series”, documents various dilapidated buildings around Beijing and their traces of human occupation. These poetic images of rubble and solitary walls are poignant examples of a lost world. The work of Wang Qingsong, on the other hand, conjures up a fantastical world of myth and innuendo. Using a dynamic combination of documentary, performance, installation, and scroll photography, Wang Qingsong’s lively spectacles expose an array of contradictions that result in the pairing of ancient Chinese civilization with the disposable urges of modern-day development, resulting in condemning and inspirational works. Other rare examples of the innovative use of photography are represented in the exhibition such as the vibrant assemblages of common objects by artist Hong Hao, and the humorous tongue portraits of artist Cang Xin. It is evident that Chinese artists have reinvented photography as an unabashed art form, one that dramatically tells the story of China here and now.

Video on Women in Art

Thanks Claire for sharing this video with us (click on the title to see it)

For details about each painting Check :
http://www.maysstuff.com/index.html

La vidéo "Women in Art", réalisée par l'énigmatique créateur Eggman913 dans le Missouri aux Etats-Unis, est une hymne impressionnante consacrée à l'histoire de l'art à travers l'image de la femme. La musique est celle de Yo-Yo Ma jouant la Sarabande de la Suite pour Violoncelle n° 1 de Bach.

Cette vidéo, téléchargée sur de nombreux sites vidéo collaboratifs, a créé une vraie euphorie sur le web. Rien que sur le site YouTube, elle a été visionnée par plus de 5,3 millions visiteurs et elle a suscité plus de 10.000 commentaires endéans 2 mois. Elle est référencée sur des centaines de blogs à travers le monde.

Cette vidéo est un vrai chef d'oeuvre d'art digital sur les plans de la maîtrise technique et de la créativité artistique. Eggma913 a créé d'autres vidéos intéressantes, accessibles sur YouTube, moyennant le logiciel de "morphing" d'images FantaMorph d'Abrosoft.

Les oeuvres d'art utilisées pour la création du film "Women in Art" ont été répertoriées par Boni, instructrice professionnelle au "Fayetteville Technical Community College" sur son site

PREVIEW THE (RED) ART AUCTION
At SOTHEBYS.COM/RED, take a peek at the (RED) Art Auction, to be held on Valentine's Day at Sotheby's in New York. Hosted by Damien Hirst and (RED) co-founder Bono, the auction will feature donated works from more than 60 contemporary artists, including Jasper Johns, Jeff Koons, Cecily Brown, Takashi Murakami, and of course, Damien Hirst, seeking to raise money for the Global Fund, to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.

Damien Hirst said to the Independent, "Money is a key and what we raise from this auction will make a huge difference for a lot of people. For a relatively small amount of effort on each artist's part we can actually save many lives. It's great to be able to give something back and make a difference."
