Leonardo da Vinci’s St. Jerome

The Metropolitan Museum of Art – Until Oct 06, 2019 New-York (USA)


This year marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). To pay tribute to this occasion. The Metropolitan Museum Of Art offers New Yorkers. A unique opportunity to see his unfinished masterpiece, St. Jerome Praying in the Wilderness. The work portrays one of the principal theologians of the early Christian Church. During his two-year stay as a hermit in the Syrian desert. It was not unusual for Leonardo to leave his works in an incomplete state. Since other interests – science. The design of weapons. The construction of a flying machine – often distracted him from his art. Saint Jerome still shows Da Vinci at the height of his powers.

Olafur Eliasson

Tate Modern – July 11 / Junuary 5, 2020 London (England)


In Eliasson’s captivating installations you become aware of your senses. People around you and the world beyond.

Some artworks introduce natural phenomena. Such as rainbows to the gallery space. Others use reflections and shadows to play with the way. We perceive and interact with the world. Many works result from the artist’s research into complex geometry. Motion patterns, and his interest in colour theory. All but one of the works have never been seen in the UK before.

Joan Mitchell / Jean-Paul Riopelle

Gallery Jean Fournier – Until July 20, 2019 Paris (France)


Joan Mitchell and Jean-Paul Riopelle, a couple that still fascinates today. Similarly, if their love story ended badly. When they meet in 1955 in Paris. He has painted for three years small rectangles of color that look like mosaics. She is still under the influence of the first generation of American abstract artists. Of which one of the most eminent figures remains Willem de Kooning. Both have very different universes. Riopelle’s art is powerful and instinctive. While Mitchell’s is much more cerebral and intellectual.

The Parian years.

Yet it would be naïve to think that these artists did not influence each other. Throughout their life together, advising and exchanging on their impressions. By bringing together some fifteen works. The exhibition gives us to see the reciprocal influence of these two artists. She focuses on their Parisian years. Period of their meeting and their first exchanges with Jean Fournier. We are pleased to find works deeply related to the history of the gallery. Like an oil on canvas realized in 1964 by Riopelle. A work exhibited during the inauguration of the space.

Edvard Munch

Bristish Museum – Until July 21, 2019 London (England)


Loneliness, anxiety, jealousy, fear and torment. Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944). Probably wasn’t much fun at parties. But he sure had a knack for art. This exhibition doesn’t make for easy viewing. It’s heavy, dour stuff that’ll hang over you like a dark cloud.

But don’t come here expecting a massive in-depth show of his iconic paintings. Tthis is all about his prints. Munch worked extensively with woodcuts. Lithographs and etchings, and the results are often lovely.


Everything that’s in Munch’s paintings. Except for colour – is also in his prints. There are lovers whose bodies merge. Couples tearing themselves apart in separation. Solitary figures lost in unbearable anguish. Beautiful unattainable women. ‘The Kiss’ is filled with a naked lust that’s almost Shockingly intense; the eyes of the lovers in ‘Attraction I’ are sunken and hollow; and ‘. The Scream’ – yes, it’s here, relax – is colourless. Stark and almost more haunted than the painted version.

Vivian Maier (the color work)

Les douches The Gallery – Until March 30, 2019 Paris (France)


One of photography’s truths is that the best street photographers learn to be invisible or. At the very
least, to convince themselves that they are. Over the years, I’ve walked the streets with Henri CartierBresson. Garry Winogrand. Tony Ray-Jones. Diane Arbus. Lee Friedlander, Tod Papageorge, and some of today’s younger shooters. Gus Powell. Melanie Einzig. Ben Ingham, and Matt Stuart. And we have all developed our own sleight-of-hand street act. We dodge, feint, twirl, two-step, and eye-shift our way through crowds and rallies. Along avenues and backstreets. In parks and on beaches. Anywhere that ordinary life draws our attention and desire. It is our invisibility that helps us get away with stealing fire from the gods.

Antony Gromley

Le Gallerie Degli Uffizi – Until May 26, Florence, (Italy)


This exhibition is intended as a form of adventure that invites both physical and imaginative participation. The body in Gormley’s work is not a protagonist in a narrative. Nor an ideal, a portrait or a memorial. It is the body in and as space.

Early experimental sculptures, objects and drawings. Often made using his own body as a primary tool, material and subject. Are brought together with large scale environments made especially for the RA. Using organic. Industrial and elemental materials, such as iron. Steel. Lead. Seawater and clay. The solidity and certainty of sculpture is put to the test. Acknowledging entropy, disintegration. The experience of disorientation. Our understanding of matter itself is under scrutiny. What it means to have a body. When every ‘thing’ is essentially space and energy.

Pierre Bonnard

This is the first major exhibition of Pierre Bonnard’s work in the UK. Since the much-loved show at Tate 20 years ago. It will allow new generations to discover Bonnard’s unconventional use of colour. While surprising those who think they already know him.

Born 1867. Bonnard was, with Henri Matisse. One of the greatest colourists of the early 20th century. He preferred to work from memory. Imaginatively capturing the spirit of a moment. And expressing it through his unique handling of colour and innovative sense of composition.

Charlotte Salomon’s life was short but intense. Marked by love. Death and a family history of suffering. Art was a refuge where she could overcome the past. And come to terms with a present that saw her being deported to Auschwitz. Where she would die in 1943. The Monastir de Pedralbes, continuing its commitment to resarch and disseminating information. On silenced women. Gives a voice to this Jewish artist. And the time she lived in, with some of the 782 gouaches that make up her ‘Life? Or theatre?’

Vanessa Safavi

The Approach Gallery – Until Feb 10, 2019 London (Engand)


The Breeder participates at Condo London 2019, hosted at The Approach, with a presentation of works Vanessa Safavi.

Vanessa Safavi uses the conceptual systems of language. And a personal narrative to explore in her work the experience of the dearticulated body. Questioning the relationship between the brain and the flesh. Her work recalls the weakness of our bodies and also. The poetry that emerges from them. She employs the modernist idiom of geometric abstraction. And the fluorescent-flavoured vernacular of contemporary pop culture. Delineating a landscape where both languages are spoken fluently. Silicone is a recurrent medium in her works. As the artist is interested in its materiality and is fascinated. By its analogy with the human body and skin.

Vanessa Safavi (1980) is Swiss-Iranian and she lives and works in Berlin.She has been awarded the Luci d’Artista award in Turin (2013).

Paula Rego

Musée de l’Orangerie – Until Jan 14, 2019 Paris (France)


The only female artist to be part of the London Group. Paula Rego set herself apart with her highly figurative. Literary, incisive and unusual work.

Born in Lisbon in 1935. Paula Rego left Portugal and Salazar’s oppressive dictatorship. As an adolescent to study in London. Where she has now lived for over fifty years. As a student at the Slade School of Arts. She rubbed shoulders with the likes of Francis Bacon. Lucian Freud. Frank Auerbach and David Hockney.

Dark narratives. Ser paintings seem to be taken from a cruel tale. And evoke the female condition in strange scenes. Going against social codes. “My favourite themes are power games and hierarchies. I always want to turn things on their heads. To upset the established order, to change heroines and idiots”.

Mounted on the occasion of the artist’s 90th birthday. This survey constitutes the first solo exhibition in a New York museum of this mid-century Argentinian modernist. Whose Op-y. Pop-y geometric abstractions evoked a sense of movement through the repetition. And sequencing of varied motifs. He was also a pioneer of kinetic art. A role most notably represented here by an immersive psychedelic installation from 1962 titled. Continual Light Cylinder.

M. C. ESCHER (1892-1972)

The National Gallery of Victoria is bringing a world-first exhibition of works by MC Escher to Melbourne this summer. Between Two Worlds | Escher X nendo will feature more than 160 prints and drawings from the renowned Dutch artist. As well as an immersive Escher-inspired environment created by Japanese design studio Nendo.

We can’t wait to see how they’ll respond to Escher’s most iconic image. The physically impossible, Hogwarts-esque staircases.

Escher rose to prominence in the 20th-century art world for his mind-bending and mathematically complex works like. ‘Hand with Reflecting Sphere’. ‘Relativity’ and ‘Balcony’. Though he considered himself to have little mathematical ability. Sis art has become iconic for its seamless tessellation, warped perspectives and impossible objects. Like endless, connected staircases and mirrored self-portraits.

Luis Camnitzer

Museo Reina Sofía – Until March 04, 2019 Madrid (Spain)


This retrospective offers a global. Contextualised view of Luis Camnitzer’s multi-faceted work. Spanning nearly sixty years. As an essayist. Art critic. Curator. Teacher. Lecturer and a creator of objects, actions and musical compositions, Camnitzer focuses on art’s transformative capacity. Viewing it essentially as a product of reflection. His practice, whether it be artistic. Or through his essays or teaching. Is defined by its approach to the controversial issues of our times.

the criticism of art-commodity, the demystification. And obsolescence of the role of the artist in consumer society. The strategies power uses to impose its logic and perpetuate its control. Or the capacity of neoliberal societies to turn education. Into an instrument of propaganda and thus render it irrelevant. All through the signifying role of language. With its ambiguities and arbitrariness. And images’ power to evoke. With these tools Camnitzer seeks to awaken the active participation. Of the viewer and their involvement in the artistic process.

Franz West

Museum Centre Pompidou – Until Dec 10, 2018 Paris (France)


A retrospective of Austrian artist Franz West at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Begins where most biographical tales perhaps should – with his mother. Emilie West. Born to a well-to-do Viennese Jewish family. She espoused communist ideals and the artist’s father, Ferdinand Zokan, a Serbian coal merchant. The family lived in a public housing complex. Out of which Emilie ran a private dental practice. Her clients included many artists and poets. Among them Reinhard Priessnit. A poet and theorist who would give the name Paßstücke (Adaptives). To West’s most iconic series of sculptures. This early contact with Vienna’s artistic milieu. Would have a profound impact on the young West’s later career. As would the sounds of whirling drills. And the image of his mother creating white and pink moulds of teeth from plaster and resin.

Andy Warhol “Shadows”

Dia Art Foundation – Oct 26 / Dec 15, 2018 NY (USA)

Created between 1978 and 1979. Shadows is one of Andy’s most abstract and enigmatic pieces. Consisting of variously colored silk screened. Canvases hung edge-to-edge in a site-specific installation. Some 102 paintings were produced in all. Though the total number of panels varies from one location. To the next, depending on the dimensions of a given space. Each silk screen is limited to a palette of two contrasting colors. While the picture itself—which flips between positive. And negative—comes from the same photo of the eponymous subject taken at Warhol’s Factory studio. Taken together, Shadows resembles a film strip capturing an indeterminate play of light.

This exhibition is dedicated to the work of American artist Saul Leiter. Who was one of the early adopters of working with colour photography. Leiter combined photography and painting his whole life.

Capture and interpret live in New York City in many-layered compositions. As well as intimate scenes as nobody had done before. Leiter also played an important role in the formation of the New York school of photography in the 1940s and 1950s.

Hilma af Klint

Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) was a pioneer of abstract painting, though admittedly. Something of an accidental one. Although she produced purely non-objective paintings. Well before the likes of Vassily Kandinsky or Kasimir Malevich. She created them as part of her involvement in occult and mystical practices. That sought contact with the spirit realm. When Klint did exhibit. She mostly showed conventional portraits and landscapes. Nonetheless, there’s no denying that the Swedish artist anticipated one of the most important aesthetic revolutions in 20th-century art. This show takes the measure of her singular artistic achievement.

Staged entirely for the camera His work is a form of drag that involves elaborate customs and sets to deconstruct icons of pop culture and art history—and. Very often, the overlap between the two. Famous paintings and photos are the grist for his work. Which channels Marilyn Monroe. Che Guevara. Frida Kahlo and Vincent Van Gogh, among many others.

Zao Wou-Ki

His work has now achieved the fame it deserves. But the opportunities to appreciate its complexity have been too rare here. This exhibition sets out to consider it in a new light while. Also inviting the viewer to reflect on the question of large-format paintings.

The exhibition itinerary begins with Zao Wou-Ki’s adoption of a new, “abstract” approach – even. If he found the term too restrictive. With the 1956 painting titled Traversée des apparences. This decisive step preceded a first stay in the United States, in 1957. That encouraged him in his quest for an ever-larger picture space.

Korean-born, American artist Nam June Paik (1932–2006). Blazed a trail with video art that remains influential to this day. Paik’s TV Clock, one of SBMA’s most important media art works. Is on view for the first time in nearly a decade. TV Clock consists of 24 color televisions mounted upright on pedestals that are arranged in a gentle arc. And displayed in a darkened space. Paik created each electronic image by manipulating the television to compress its red, green. And blue color into a single line against a black background. Called a “fixed-image television” by Paik. Each TV does not involve a videotape. disc, or computer chip but an image.

The artist created by ingenious manipulation of electronic elements. Read in sequence, each static line tumbles. Into the next to form a dynamic yet elegantly spare. Rhythm that resembles a universally recognized way to measure time. A crucial work in Paik’s long career. TV Clock offers audiences the chance to experience. The art and thought of one of the 20th century’s most innovative. And enduringly vital artists.

a young woman. These silent figures in everyday poses. All of them with their eyes closed. Seem lost in thought yet simultaneously caught in a moment of high concentration. There is, for example, a boy meditatively holding a crystal ball in his hands. A boy who just closed his eyes before shooting. An arrow with a toy bow, and a young woman listening to music

The Studio Museum in Harlem (1983) and the New Museum (1993). A moment of “re-discovery”. About a dozen years finally put him on the map as an artist to contend with. As appreciation grew for his over-all abstracted paintings. That touched on themes from race to cosmology. This show introduces viewers to his sculptures. A heretofore, little-known aspect of his practice notable for its frequent references to African art.

An early performance art innovator. Pistoletto founded The Zoo in the late 1960s. Which joined artists. Intellectuals, and the public for collaborative “actions”. That unified art and daily life.

Anselm Kiefer

White Cube Gallery – Until Aug 25, 2018 (Hong Kong)

Anselm Kiefer has produced a diverse body of work comprising painting. Sculpture and installation that has made him one of the most important European artists of the past four decades.

After studying law, and Romance languages and literature. Kiefer devoted himself entirely to painting. He attended the School of Fine Arts at Fribourg-in-Brisgau. Then the Art Academy in Karlsruhe, while maintaining contact with Joseph Beuys. But soon began to develop his own deliberately indigenous set of subjects and symbols. That he used to explore the fraught territory of German history and identity. In his artistic language. Physical materiality and visual complexity enliven his themes and content with a rich. Vibrant tactility.

His subject-matter ranges from sources as diverse as Teutonic Mythology and history. Alchemy and the nature of belief. All depicted in a bewildering variety of materials. Including oil paint. Dirt. Lead. Photography. Woodcuts, sand, straw and all manner of organic material. By adding found materials to the painted surface of his immense tableaux. He invents a compelling third space between painting and sculpture. Recent work has broadened his range yet further, and in 2005 he showed a series of paintings based around the little-known work of the modernist poet Velimir Chlebnikov (1885-1922). Few contemporary artists match Kiefer’s epic reach, and his work consistently balances powerful imagery with acute critical analysis.

Erwin Wurm’s outdoor installation

It’s a gray, dreary day at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, on Furman Street. And Austrian sculptor Erwin Wurm is going somewhat off topic whil. Discussing his new installation for the Public Art Fund. “In my country, it’s an insult to call someone a virsli”. He says, referring to a local variety of sausage. “If you call someone a virsli. It means you’re calling him, um, how would you say?” A dick? “A dick, yes.”

Hot Dog Bus.

Sometimes a virsli is just a virsli. Though for the purposes of Wurm’s project, Hot Dog Bus. This delicacy, or rather its American cousin, is being elevated to art. The piece comprises a mustard-colored VW bus. That is handing out free hot dogs this summer at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The vehicle itself looks like it has consumed too many tube steaks. Bulging across its grill. Trunk and fenders as if it were wearing the automotive equivalent of a fat suit. “I work quite often with sausages”. Says Wurm, “because it’s such an iconic Middle-European food.”

The first major Canadian retrospective of Alexander Calder (1898–1976). Presents the work of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition centres on the inventive talent of this American painter and sculptor.

Calder questioned artistic conventions and reimagined the very nature of drawing and sculpture. With his pioneering use of industrial materials. Such as steel wire and sheet metal as well as found objects. By introducing the fourth dimension of time into sculpture. He entirely transformed the way objects animate space. And his invention of the mobile, as he explained. Opened up “a new possibility of beauty.” Calder also created stationary abstract works, which Jean Arp dubbed “stabiles” in 1932. From Paris to New York . Later Montreal with Trois disques (Man). Created for Expo 67. Calder moved in premier artistic and intellectual circles. (Cocteau. Duchamp. Le Corbusier. Léger. Mondrian. Miró. Prévert. Sartre. Varèse. among others). And established himself as a forerunner of the international avant-garde.

Major loans are among the 100 works. Also, that illustrate this ingenious artist’s extensive means of  expression. Ranging from paintings and drawings to wire circus figures. Hanging and standing mobiles. Sheet-metal stabiles as well as jewellery.

An exhibition organized and circulated by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. In collaboration with the Calder Foundation. It is presented in Montreal thanks to the support of the Terra Foundation for American Art and Pembroke.

John Mawurndjul

Museum of Contemporary Art – Until Sep 23, 2018 Australia, Sydney

Bark painting is among the most recognisable Aboriginal art, but you mightn’t know that it was only popularised in the 1930s. Until then, the familiar imagery was used as body paint and in caves. Occasionally the patterns were painted onto bark as a record of the designs, but it’s only relatively recently that the bark has been considered its own canvas.

One of the greatest exponents of bark painting – and one of the greatest exponents of Aboriginal art in general. Is John Mawurndjul, who rose to international fame in the late 1980s and ‘90s. The Kuninjku artist, based in Arnhem Land, is getting a major career retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art, made up of 165 works.


They’ll take over the third level of the MCA this winter, the same space where English artist and provocateur Grayson Perry presented a blockbuster show in 2015. At the time, Perry sparked debate when he controversially said Aboriginal art should not be considered contemporary art.

Clothilde Bullen, one of the curators behind Mawurndjul’s exhibition and a Wardandi (Nyoongar). Aboriginal woman, strongly disagrees. “I think all Aboriginal art being made here and now is contemporary, and I’d absolutely stand by that.” she says. “But it’s OK that [Perry] is given the opportunity to say those things at the MCA, and we have this kind of rebuttal.”

Not only is Mawurndjul one of the major pioneers of the bark medium. He has evolved and pushed traditional practices, like rarrk, which refers to a close and meticulous cross-hatching that creates an almost shimmering effect on the bark. And he has been deeply involved in shaping the narrative and layout of this exhibition, which explores elements of Kuninjku culture and then covers parts of his country in Central Arnhem Land.

“In a sense, you’re working through country in the way you should – in the way John would want you to walk through,” Bullen says. “We’ve had a collaborative approach, and allowing the artist to guide what we do rather than us being the gatekeeper – that’s a very contemporary approach to Aboriginal curation.”


The exhibition will also show his evolution as an artist, starting with figurative works which show natural elements like barramundi, frogs and turtles. In his mid-career, he started to push his use of ‘rarrk’ even further with paintings of the weeks-long Mardayin ceremonies that take place in Arnhem land. In the later stages of his career, his work became more abstract.

Bullen says that although both Mawurndjul and the MCA consider his work contemporary, his output stands on its own terms. And while his work is imbued with stories and images stretching back thousands of years, visitors shouldn’t be worried about interpreting the paintings incorrectly.

“It’s actually okay – it’s an artwork and people will have different experiences with it and different takes on it, and can interpret it in lots of different ways. I think people need to drop that fear.”

Modern Couples

Centre Pompidou Metz – Until August 20, 2018 Metz (France)

Pablo Picasso and Dora Maar, the Delaunay’s, Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray and Lee Miller, the Eames’s are some of the around forty artist couples showcased in this important cross-topical exhibition organized by Centre Pompidou-Metz in collaboration with Barbican Centre, London. With a comprehensive mix of visual arts, architecture, design, cinema, and literature from the first half of the twentieth century, this show displays master-pieces, including some one hundred from Centre Pompidou, Musée national d’art moderne and from international prestigious collections.

This exihibition looks into creative pair-work and the mechanisms of an artistic companionship. Does each approach dissolve into one, are they complementary or do they oppose each other? Here, are explored the creative processes and artistic approaches which interact and evolve within the intimacy of a twosome to give us a broader understanding of Art History and the soul and fringes of its essential movements. The very idea of modernity, as impacted by social, artistic and technical evolutions. Is reviewed here through the prism of the couple.

Daniel Buren

Carriageworks – Until Aug 12, 2018 Sydney (Australia)

Daniel Buren is one of France’s leading contemporary artists and has exhibited work at an astonishing ten Venice Biennales. He’s best known for his site-specific stripe installations, and there’ll be glimpses of those stripes (which have featured in his artworks since the 1960s), in the mammoth installation he’s bringing to Carriageworks.

‘Like Child’s Play’ features 100 oversized children’s wooden block toys arranged into a colourful cityscape. It’ll be a little like stepping into a Toy Story movie. The toys that we once played with and held dominance over as children now tower high above our heads. The installation was first shown in 2014 at Musée d’Art moderne et contemporain of Strasbourg in France.

Alberto Giacometti

The Guggenheim Museum – June 8/Sept 12, 2018 New-York

When they think of him at all, most people remember Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) as the artist who created skinny figures. That’s true, of course, though it neglects the context in which he made those sculptures in the late 1940s. After war and genocide left the world both devastated and numb. Though it may be simplistic to draw a correlation between the death camps and Giacometti’s. Emaciated forms, his treatment of the body. Transforming it into something resembling a burnt matchstick, exemplified a zeitgeist stunned by catastrophe. The Guggenheim’s magisterial survey of his career affirms as much, while noting that Giacometti defined the figure in existential terms. As a manifestation of the vulnerability, anguish and mystery of the human condition.

Born in Switzerland into a family of artists, Giacometti moved, in 1922. To study art in Paris, where he discovered the work of Constantin Brancusi and Pablo Picasso. He assimilated aspects of their styles. Also found inspiration in the artifacts of ancient cultures, like the Bronze Age’s Cycladic civilization. All of these influences are evident in Giacometti’s totemic sculpture Spoon Woman (1927)., In which a female torso takes the shape of the eponymous implement. A rather blatant vaginal reference that also recalls a fertility fetish.

André Breton.

Around this time, Giacometti fell under the sway of André Breton and the Surrealists, a group known for hitting the mother lode of eroticism by mining the subconscious for subject matter. Giacometti followed suit with his seminal 1932 construction, The Palace at 4 a.m. (which is not on display, though a preparatory study of it is). By his own admission, the piece—a sort of 3D drawing of a house or stage set haunted by an enigmatic cast that includes a woman, a spinal column and a flying creature—came out of a torrid love affair that consumed him for six months, suggesting that Palace totes some major sexual baggage. In any case, Giacometti drifted away from Surrealism by the mid-1930s.


He remained in Paris after the Nazi takeover in 1940, but a 1941 trip to Geneva to visit his mother left him in exile after he was denied reentry into France. He sat out World War II in a hotel room. Where he made work at a diminished scale, necessitated by his cramped surroundings.

Whether due to his isolation during the war or the horrors precipitated by it, Giacometti, upon returning to Paris in 1946. Embarked on the attenuated figuration that would remain his signature style until his death in 1966. His postwar reunion with friends and family also sparked a body of portrait paintings featuring people close to him.

Regardless of medium or personal familiarity, though. Giacometti set his subjects at a seemingly unbridgeable distance from the viewer. His use of dashed-off schematic lines for his portraits, and gnarled textures for his sculpture.Cconveys the sense of something consumed or atomized by elemental forces—as indeed the world had been by 1945. Since then, Giacometti’s art has continued to remind us of humanity’s inability to escape its own folly.

Antoni Tàpies

Fundació Antoni Tàpies – Until 24 Feb 2019 Barcelona, (Espagne)

Antoni Tàpies exploded on to the art scene in the 1950s when he began to incorporate waste paper, mud and rags into his paintings, eventually moving on to the point where his works included whole pieces of furniture, running water and girders. Today, he’s Barcelona’s most celebrated living artist, and his trademark scribbled and paint-daubed pieces are sought after for everything from wine bottle labels to theatre posters.

The artist set up the Tàpies Foundation in this, the former Montaner i Simon publishing house, in 1984, dedicating it to the study and appreciation of contemporary art. In a typically contentious act, Tàpies crowned the building with a glorious tangle of aluminium piping and ragged metal netting (‘Núvol i Cadira’, or ‘Cloud and Chair’). The building remains one of the earliest examples of Modernisme to combine exposed brick and iron, and is now a cultural centre and museum dedicated to the work and life of the man himself, with exhibitions, symposiums, lectures and films.

Summer Exhibition/The Great Spectacle review – a Grayson revolution

Royal Academy – Untl 19 August, 2018 London

This year, the committee included Phyllida Barlow, Conrad Shawcross and Cornelia Parker and was helmed by none other than dotty potter and art world everyman Grayson Perry, who has given more space than ever to plucky, undiscovered amateurs. But it’s not all weekend paintbrush warriors: there are major works by the likes of Anish Kapoor, David Shrigley, David Hockney and Rose Wylie too. Even everyone’s favourite wall-botherer Banksy is involved, displaying a work of art made out of a Ukip placard, priced at £350m. £350m! Like the Brexit bus! More like Bants-y, amirite?

250 years.

Every year for the past 250 years, the Royal Academy has bravely opened its doors and allowed literally any old schmuck to have a go at getting their art on its walls. The annual Summer Exhibition is an open submission show: that means plebs and haughty fine artists alike can send in their work for consideration by a jury of Royal Academicians, who sift through thousands of works of art before choosing the best 1,300 pieces to display.

Almost everything in the Summer Exhibition is for sale, so this could be your chance to nab a bargain painting by a future superstar, or to finally invest your riches in a Tracey Emin. And this year, to help celebrate that whole 250 years of being a leading light in the UK art scene thing, the RA is taking the Summer Exhibition out into the street as well, with works by artists spilling out onto Piccadilly and Regent Street.

The Summer Exhibition is an annual highlight: 250 years of tradition, art and giving the little guy a chance. Long may it continue.

Yves Klein Exhibition

 Blenheim Art Foundation – 18July/07Oct 2018 – (England)

A major exhibition of French artist Yves Klein’s work is to go on display at Blenheim Palace from 18 July – 7 October. The show will mark what would have been the visionary French artist’s 90th birthday and will explore concepts of “beauty, sensibility and the sublime”.

Klein is considered one of the most important figures in post-war European art, combining traditional artistic mediums with innovative techniques. His imaginative creative approach influenced movements in conceptual art, minimalism and performance art; his Anthropometryseries, which will be on display at Yves Klein at Blenheim Palace, saw Klein employ models as “living brushes” to create marks on the canvases in front of a live audience, breaking down the boundaries between artistic process and finished product.

Blenheim Palace

Yves Klein at Blenheim Palace will feature a total of 50 artworks including painting, sculpture and large-scale installation. Visitors can expect to see Klein’s large-scale Monochrome Paintings,which were decisive in the artist’s fascination with and focus on the colour blue. Klein is perhaps most famous for developing his own vivid, ultramarine pigment, International Klein Blue, which became a symbol of reaching the ‘infinite’ or the ‘sublime’ through pure colour.

The exhibition is hosted by the Blenheim Art Foundation, which aims to inspire visitors of Blenheim Palace with modern and contemporary art inside the 18th-century building, and will mark the institution’s 5th anniversary.

Daniel Moquay of Yves Klein Archives said in a statement: “We are very happy to collaborate with Blenheim Art Foundation on the occasion of Yves Klein’s 90th birthday year and to present his artworks in a totally different environment from the usual exhibitions that we organise. This exhibition Art Gallery will present Yves Klein’s artworks from a new angle and bring contemporary and neo-classical art into unprecedented dialogue, as a fluid tradition.”

Museum Rodin until 22 July Paris (French)

From the 1890s onward, the art of dance was transformed, with new experiences revolutionizing what was sometimes an urbane and codifi ed form of entertainment. Rodin’s keen interest in these innovations led him to meet such exceptional figures as Hanako and Loïe Fuller. A particular highlight was his encounter with the dancers of the Cambodian royal ballet during their visit to Paris to perform at the World’s Fair. When they left, in the sculptor’s words.

They “took the beauty of the world with them”. Inspired by his complicity with the shapers of this revolution. Rodin associated dance and sculpture, both of which explore the possibilities of the human body. He turned his attention to all forms of dance. Regional and oriental folk dances. Cabaret performances, outstanding contemporary dancers, and dance as it was practiced in Antiquity. An interest he shared with Isadora Duncan.


The exhibition, centered on the “Dance Movements” series, will survey all Rodin’s research and experimentation. The sculptor used assemblages to convey the body’s tensions. Inventing audacious portés that combine effects of void and solid, balance and imbalance. Rodin’s creativity focused on expressing the life force of the body.  Itsvital energy, strength and equilibrium – just as dance explores the body’s relationship with space and weightlessness through extension. Flexibility and freedom of line.

Picasso and Dance

Palais Garnier/Paris Opera –  June 19/September 16, 2018 (French)

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was without a doubt one of the most versatile artists of the 20th century – a painter, draftsman, sculptor and engraver. He never stopped investigating a wide range of techniques, exploring the most diverse fields and forms of expression. In the 1910s, he discovered the world of show business and started working on the creation of sets and costumes. That would mark the history of ballet. Parade (1917), The Three-Cornered Hat (1919), Pulcinella (1920) and Mercure (1924) are all major landmark works for this art. Picasso’s legacy remains alive in the Ballet repertoire of the Paris Opera, which demonstrates how important a role he played in the choreographic landscape of the time.

In dance

However, looking beyond the world of ballet, we can see that Picasso expressed an interest in dance from a young age. From the circus dancers of the 1900s. To the bacchanal scenes of the 1940s to 1960s, to the erotic dances of Picasso’s later work. Everything seemed to be a pretext to depicting bodies in movement. The dynamics of the danced movement thus featured in all of the master’s work. Sometimes going so far as to in fact fuel his artistic expression.
The exhibition held by the Bibliothèque nationale de France and the Paris National Opera explores the different aspects of Picasso’s relationship with dance. From company life and creative research, to fine arts and performing arts.

The Polaroid Project

The exhibition at C/O Berlin focuses on the use of the cult instant camera Polaroid in art, film and pop culture.

Museumsportal –  7 July /23 September 2018 Berlin (Germany)

The Polaroid camera has been an integral part of photographic history since the early 1970s: the self-developing images, the classic square format with the white edge and the light composition of the photos are the personification of the snapshot.

The Polaroid photo in art

In recent decades they have also enjoyed great popularity among artists. Andy Warhol used the Polaroids as a reference for his pop art and documented his work with it, Dennis Hopper researched with the camera for his films, and Richard Hamilton painterly redesigned the snapshots. In a collection of 250 photographs, the exhibition portrays the many possible uses of the Polaroid camera.

 The Musée Unterlinden, Colmar, France.

June 10 / October 29, 2018.

To coincide with Georg Baselitz’s 80th birthday, the Musée Unterlinden is devoting a major exhibition to the German artist.

The event in Colmar, entitled Corpus Baselitz. Will mark the first exhibition in a French museum of a new and significant body of works (paintings, drawings and sculptures). Produced between 2014 and 2017, in which the artist examines his own body, and through it, his place in the history of art.

Since his first inverted paintings of 1969. The representation of his own body has proliferated in Baselitz’s work with varying degrees of regularity.  Either alone or accompanied by the body of his wife Elke, in the tradition of the nude and the self-portrait.

Whilst his gaze was previously that of a distant observer, in the series of works. That he began in the winter of 2014–15. He confronts the reality of his advanced years and the ravages of time. In this introspective work, he summons up his masters (Duchamp, Dubuffet, Dix, Picasso, or De Kooning) for what resembles a descent into hell.


The mutilated, incomplete, and fragmented body. Yet the violence of the subject of old age is counterbalanced by the movement of walking downstairs (a reference to Duchamp’s 1912 work Nude Descending a Staircase). Which the inversion transforms into an upward movement. The generosity of the medium and a new painting technique transfigure the bodies, which become luminescent and vibrant.

The obsession with the subject of his body stripped bare explored by Baselitz on the cusp of his eightieth birthday and the transmutation of this black vision into a vigorous. Generous representation offered up to the public demonstrate the artist’s unwavering vital and creative energy.

The subject

The subject, the form (sometimes drawing upon medieval triptychs). The monumentality, the physical substance, and the color of the German artist’s works resonate like a contemporary echo. Of Grünewald’s panels in the Isenheim Altarpiece. The masterpiece of the Musée Unterlinden’s collections.

The exhibition constitutes an exceptional and unique tribute to a major contemporary artist. Following on from the retrospective of his work being held at the Beyeler Foundation. Near Basel from January to May 2018.

Aurélien Froment – oe

Marcelle Alix Gallery – 31 May/21 July 2018 (Paris)

Aurélien FromentAurélien Froment’s not only reveals existing forms, but it also determines other ways of dreaming them by seeking the right transformation, that enables the past to build a future. The artist aims at making an effort of imagination to connect himself to faraway things in order to put them on a common stage and determine their importance together. In this light, he has conceived the inventory of the elements constituting the Ideal Palace of postman Cheval. A work which is so intense that only a closer vision may contribute to shedding light on this “work of one man”. Concerned about his own pace.


What these figures (imaginary animals, plants, ornaments, etc). Carved in rock and photographed separately depict. Is a different life pulse. A rhythm that the world needs as a kind of support.

These pieces translate performative thinking in relation to preexisting works: they seek to stress the path that starts with the gesture and leads towards the form, and vice versa. The exhibition will always be, for the artist, a way of not forgetting what might be called “the arising of the gesture”. The way in which the gesture enables us to truly make use of forms as much as it helps us become receptive.

Here’s the Joseph Beuys myth: the hugely influential German artist was a pilot in World War II. He crashed his Stuka over the Crimea and was found by a tribe of nomadic. Tartars who wrapped him in fat and felt to keep him warm. They saved his life.

Out of that fable came a whole career based on felt, fat, electricity and medicine. The building blocks of survival, used to help deal with his country’s tormented recent past. His work took in sculpture, drawing, performance, political activism and lectures. It’s art as spiritual first aid for a damaged national psyche, sculpture as healing object. Performance as shamanic ritual – and it’s some of the most important art of the twentieth century.


The first room here is full of felt clipped to the walls, copper boxes and piles of relay equipment. In

one piece, rolls of felt nestle in smeared globs of fat. A hammer on the wall promises to rebuild something, a sled on the floor promises to whisk your broken body to safety.

Upstairs, the floor is littered with little coiled clay turds with tools stuck in them – like the charred faecal remains of some group of workers – cracked machinery and powerless electricity rods. It leaves you certain that once this was alive, but is now anything but. You’ve probably seen a bronze version of this landmark installation in the Tate. They are sad, forlorn, abandoned things.

In a side room, you find a bunch of early works – fragile little female figures and crucifixes, all on the edge of crumbling like disintegrating prayers.

Social cohésion.

These are all political statements too – works that scream for healing and social cohesion, not the destructive, nihilistic drive of capital. That they’re on show, and many for sale, in a huge international commercial gallery is pretty at odds with Beuys’s whole vibe.

But look past that and in this art of upheaval and pain, you might just find some balm for the soul, and we could all use a bit of that.

“She logs on every day, and out of habit types in product names one after another as if panning for gold; she always finds a reason to add them to the shopping cart. One item leads to another, and the sea of merchandise only expands her bottomless appetite.”

This passage sums up a widespread 21st-century experience: the feeling of near-mindlessness or automation that accompanies online shopping. When we shop on the internet, we often become untethered from ourselves, and we feel, and then try to satisfy, needs we didn’t even know we had.

The words come from a short story contributed by artist Cao Fei to the catalogue for One Hand Clapping, an Exhibition Gallery Opening at the Guggenheim May 4. Cao Fei’s new video work—a commission for the Guggenheim’s Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative—is set in the place that makes online shopping possible: a package distribution center.



FEBRUARY 2 – MAY 13, 2018 –  Guggenheim Bilbao

An unclassifiable figure of the arts and literature of the 20th century, Henri Michaux (b. 1899, Namur, Belgium–d. 1984, Paris) greatly influenced the artists and writers of his time over the course of his long life. Both a “poets’ poet” and a “painters’ painter.” Lionized by figures in both fields like André Gide and Francis Bacon. Michaux feverishly produced thousands of works on paper whose full extent is only now becoming apparent.

Archives in Paris.

This Exhibition Gallery, organized in collaboration with the Michaux Archives in Paris, covers fifty years of Michaux’s creative activity. Focusing on his most important periods and series. Bringing together some 230 of the artist’s visual works. Documents, and personal objects, Henri Michaux: The Other Side is organized around three principal themes. Offering a panoramic view of each: the human figure, the alphabet, and the altered psyche.

The show emphasizes the formal and material parallels and convergences between these three themes, and reveals central aspects of the artist’s modus operandi. Underscoring his constant interest in science, musicology, and ethnography. Some of Michaux’s fundamental series. Like the fonds noirs (black backgrounds). The frottages (rubbings), the mouvements (movements), and the dessins mescaliniens (mescaline drawings). Are amply represented in this show, which includes works never exhibited before as well as pieces from major national and international collections.

Dreams that money can buy (1947)

Directed by Hans Richter (German)


Surrealist painter and Dada film-theorist Hans Richter wrote, produced. And directed the experimental exercise Dreams That Money Can Buy. One of the most significant contributions to the 20th-century “avant garde” movement. The project began in 1944. While Richter was director of the Institute of Film Techniques. At City College in New York. Combining short scenarios written by such world-renowned artists as Max Ernst. Marcel Duchamps. Man Ray. Alexander Calder and Fernand Leger. Richter came up with a full-color. Feature-length study in dreamlike “wish fulfillment”. The film’s only nod to continuity is the presence of a self-styled heavenly psychiatrist.


Whose patients purportedly visualize the images which play across the screen. Described by one observer as “surreal yet somewhat Jungian”. Dreams That Money Can Buy cost $25,000. And was three years in the making (Richter liked to take his time. His later Dadascope took five years). Its New York premiere was greeted with a mixture. Of bravos and bewilderment. Especially when the projectionist elected to show. The film on the wall and ceiling rather than the screen. One assumes that the projectionist was less capricious. When Dreams That Money Can Buy won a special prize at the 1947 Venice Film Festival.

Following the documentary Jean-Michel Basquiat. The Radiant Child by the artist’s personal friend, Tamra Davis. One could mistakenly think they knew everything there was to know about Basquiat. The film unveiled intimate confessions. Went through the daily life of Basquiat as an underground artist. And got closer than ever to dispelling the mythical aura surrounding the painter.

It was his mother, too, who gifted him the book that changed everything. Henry Gray’s Anatomy of the Human Body, after a terrible accident ended in a trip to the hospital at seven. The scientific gaze helped him cultivate his signature artistic style later on. From his troubled childhood. Between delinquency and life on the street. The documentary showcases the birth of a free.

Searching (2018)

Directed by Aneesh Chaganty


After David Kim (John Cho)’s 16-year-old daughter goes missing. A local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead. David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet. Where all secrets are kept today. His daughter’s laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller. Told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate. David must trace his daughter’s digital footprints before she disappears forever.



Sicilian Ghost Story (2018)

Directed by Fabio Grassadonia, Antonio Piazza (Italian)


Set in a small Sicilian town that’s cradled in a picturesque. Rocky valley and fringed by a shadowy forest, there is a sense that Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza’s film takes place on the very fringe of the ‘real’ world. Where there is still some fairytale magic. Both beautiful and deadly. It’s a feeling encouraged by the directors’ languorous. Almost bleary visual style. Their deft use of natural imagery. And a story viewed through the prism of a fiercely imaginative teenage girl. Who, rather noticeably, likes to wear red.




BlacKkKlansman (2018)

Directed by Spike Lee


If you’ve been pining for the return of the fiery. Political Spike Lee of Do the Right Thingand Malcolm X, good news. BlacKkKlansman is the director working at his electrifying best. Maybe the optimism of the Obama era robbed him of some of that righteous fury (which would be one explanation for his limp Oldboy remake). Or maybe middle age mellowed him; either way. Trump’s America—Charlottesville. Black Lives Matter and everything else—has brought the old mojo flooding back. Veering from a blaxploitation spoof to an undercover thriller. And ending with a no-punches-pulled real-life coda. BlacKkKlansman is riotously fun one minute. Savagely biting the next.




“The Kiss” (1896)

Directed by William Heise

The first kiss seen at the cinema.

At just 18 seconds long. “The Kiss” (sometimes known as “The May Irwin Kiss”) is one of the earliest films to be shown to the public. Directed by William Heise for Thomas Edison. It recreates a kiss from a popular musical of the time, The Widow Jones.

The sex scene
To be honest. It’s barely a kiss; there’s definitely no tongues or bodily fluids exchanged as actor John Rice tweezes his moustache in preparation before he goes in for what is more of a peck.

Why is it so groundbreaking?
Officially the first ever film to feature two people kissing. It caused an uproar, with one commentator writing that it was “beastly enough in life size on the stage. But magnified to gargantuan proportions and repeated three times over, it is absolutely disgusting.”




More (Full version)

Directed by  Barbet Schroeder 1969


Stefan (Klaus Grünberg) is a German student from Lübeck, who has finished his mathematics studies and decides to have an adventure to discard his personal commitments. After hitch-hiking to Paris, he makes friends with Charlie (Michel Chanderli) while playing cards in a Latin Quarter, and they decide to commit a burglary to get some money. At a swinging Left Bank party, Stefan meets a free-spirited-beautiful but elusive American girl called Estelle (Mimsy Farmer) and follows her to Ibiza.

He discovers Estelle is involved with former Nazi German man called Dr. Wolf (Heinz Engelmann). Borrowing a villa from a hippie, Stefan saves Estelle from Dr. Wolf only to find she does not really want to be saved, and she introduces him to heroin (referred to by the old street name, “horse”), which she has stolen from Dr. Wolf. Stefan is initially against Estelle using heroin, but having used it previously, she persuades him to try it. Soon Stefan and Estelle are both heavily addicted to heroin. They try to break the addiction using LSD and initially manage to stay clean.

However, after a while, they are both using heroin again. Unable to break free of the addiction, it quickly spirals out of control, leading to a tragic end for Stefan.

J’aime (I love)

Experimental Film – Directed by Alain Lame (French)


The painter in the cinema is a fictional character emblematic of the figure of the artist. The creative genius renews the heroic figure of the adventurer. Solitary cowboy in a cultivated and urban universe (Paris or New York). It plays on the contradiction between individual freedom and the forms of social organization (family, recognition, exhibition, etc.).

Alain Lame shows us in his experimental film the art market. It refers to all transactions on works of art and works of art. Also, we will see the different actors of the art trade that are the artists. Merchants and antique dealers. Gallery or brokers. Collectors and amateurs.

Finally, we watch an organized bulimia !



Human Flow

Directed  by Ai WeiWei – Pekin (China)


Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact.

Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future.


Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?

Amazon Studios and Participant Media present, in association with AC Films, Human Flow, a film directed by Ai Weiwei. Human Flow is produced by Ai Weiwei, Chin-Chin Yap and Heino Deckert and executive produced by Andrew Cohen of AC Films with Jeff Skoll and Diane Weyermann of Participant Media.




Bachir in Wonderland (Short Film 16′)

With the presence of Bachir and the documentary directors.




Mary Page Marlowe

By Tracy Letts. Directed by Lila Neugebauer.

2NSTAGE Theater –  18/31 July, New-York (Us)


Tracy Letts’s fascinating Mary Page Marlowe presents a portrait of its title character in the form of a jigsaw puzzle. The play’s 11 scenes, each about eight minutes long, span nearly 70 years in the life of a Midwestern baby boomer, but they are presented out of chronological order; each new piece connects to others and fills in gaps until a larger picture emerges. But the play resists its own tendency toward neatness through a central conceit: Mary Page, at various ages, is embodied by six different actors (and one prop baby), a powerfully literal rebuke to the idea of a stable self. “I’m not the person I am,” Mary Page tells a psychotherapist—and she’s certainly, obviously, not who she used to be.

Orphan Black’s

Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany plays Mary Page in her twenties and thirties; we hear her dissect her joyless extramarital affairs in therapy and then watch her, later/earlier, engage in a hotel-room tryst. Susan Pourfar takes the reins for Mary Page’s forties, when she labors to raise kids, and Kellie Overbey plays her at 50, when she crashes into reality; Blair Brown takes over for the final decade of Mary Page’s life, when she has softened a bit with age and resignation. All four are excellent, as is most of the rest of the cast—18 actors in all, many appearing in only a single scene apiece.

While the play’s wide scope keeps the audience at a bird’s-eye remove, its components are vivid close-up snapshots. Director Lila Neugebauer keeps Mary Page in hard, revealing focus even as the character sometimes smudges herself in denial or passivity. (Substance abuse is a recurring issue: a need to be out of control.) Mary Page Marlowe combines moments of crisis into a longer view of time. It approaches life—this one life—with something that feels like wisdom.

Directed by Drake Doremus – July 2018 (US)


In a time of haute technology and post-Black Mirror consciousness, what better time than now for a movie like Zoe to be made? Léa Seydoux and Ewan McGregor star in this romantic sci-fi where synthetic humans are normal in society and compatibility robots can discern whether two people are a perfect match. Although many movies have exhausted the tropes of the role of technology in relationships, Zoe seems to delve further into the idea, specifically with artificial intelligence’s potential to reduce loneliness.




Call me by your name

Directed by Luca Guadagnino, Italy


‘Call Me by Your Name’, Winner of the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, has delighted audiences at such festivals as Toronto, Sundance and the Berlinale. Elio spends every summer with his parents at their villa in the northern Italian countryside, where he enjoys the sun, reading, peace and quiet and the company of his friends. The summer that Elio turns 17, he meets Oliver, a handsome doctoral student working as an intern for his father.




Mamma Mia

Directed by Ol Parker – July 2018 (US)


What’s better than a Mamma Mia sequel? A Mamma Mia sequel featuring Cher, of course. Although the 72-year-old is somehow playing the mother of the 69-year-old Meryl Streep, it’s her first on-screen role in eight years, and what a way to return. Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! finds Sophie 10 years later, now pregnant and wondering how her mother felt when she was in the same position. Cue the flashback – we see how a young Donna got herself into a sticky situation with Bill, Sam and Harry. With ABBA songs old and new, a sparkling cast list and an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza planned if the trailer is anything to go by, it looks like it’ll be the perfect summer movie to go and see with friends.





Max Pugh and Marc J. Francis (French/Britich)


Heartfelt, if not entirely satisfying, Walk With Meprovides an up-close glimpse of the life of devotion, focusing on the monks and nuns who live at a rural monastery led by Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Credited with introducing the practice of mindfulness to the West, the 90-year-old has been limited in his activities as the result of a recent stroke, but for a long time he appeared regularly on the lecture circuit, and many Americans (including this one) have heard him speak and been guided through meditations by him. To convey the powerful calm of his presence would be a tall order for any film. The documentary by Max Pugh and Marc J. Francis certainly has its potent moments. But its mix of the contemplative and the observational finally proves more illustrative than immersive.

Against the backdrop of today’s cultural environment where social media plays a dominant role in both disseminating and arbitrating public discourse on art and politics, these films call for a re-examination of the screen as the stage upon which reality can be reflected and changed.

The exhibition includes films by Monica Bonvicini, GCC, General Idea, Mary Kelly, Christopher Miner, Pat O’Neill, Hardeep Pandhal, Pope.L, Martha Rosler and Jacolby Satterwhite.

Woman Walks Ahead

Director by  Susanna White 2018 (USA)


Based on true events, WOMAN WALKS AHEAD tells the story of Catherine Weldon (Jessica Chastain).

Her arrival at Standing Rock is welcomed with open hostility by a US Army officer (Sam Rockwell). Who has stationed troops around the Lakota reservation to undermine Native American claims to the land. As Catherine and Sitting Bull grow closer, and as their friendship-and his life-are threatened by imperious government forces. Catherine must contend with the violence that underlies her position.




Review: In ‘Araby,’ the Story of a Wandering Laborer

 Directed by João Dumans, Affonso Uchoa 2017 Brazil


Araby begins by observing the day-to-day of Andre, a teenager who lives in an industrial area in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. After a local factory worker, Cristiano, has an accident on the job, he leaves behind a handwritten journal, which the boy proceeds to read with relish. The film shifts into road-movie mode to recount the story of Cristiano, an ex-con and eternal optimist who journeys across Brazil in search of work, enduring no shortage of economic hardship but gaining an equal amount of self-knowledge. Invigorating and ever surprising, Araby is a humanist work of remarkable poise and maturity.




Apocalyptic, unfathomable essay film from the legendary Jean-Luc Godard. (French)

Jean-Luc Godard presents himself as a one-man YouTube in The Image Book (Le Livre d’Image, also known as The Picture Book). The old dog of the New Wave is as provocative, and impenetrable, as ever in a documentary essay / installation piece shaped around a blizzard of images culled from artworks, news footage and a vast sampling of classic films. From Hitchcock’s Vertigo to Pasolini’s Salò via Joan Crawford in Johnny Guitar.

The film is broken into chapters, with recurring images of hands and trains. There are voices on the soundtrack, including Godard’s. Writing on the screen and words that are mostly translated into English, but sometimes not. Watching the film is like trying to tune a radio. That stubbornly refuses to stay on the same wavelength.

Buster Keaton

Godard, now 87, certainly seems to be in apocalyptic mood as he focuses heavily on images of violence and suffering. Humans have an innate capacity for cruelty and self-destruction. Consuming the finite resources of a planet that we seem to conveniently forget that we share with other species. The recurring scenes of trains. Including, of course, Buster Keaton in The General – must, one assumes. Speak to the Holocaust, when railway tracks marked the road to hell.

Later in the film, Godard turns his attention to the Middle East in a chapter headed ‘Joyful Arabia’. The title of a work by Alexandre Dumas. He chastises the West for having no real interest in the people or the culture. The promise of prosperity from a foreign land lies at the heart of all colonialism.

There are themes and concerns that can be teased out from this largely unfathomable film. But it is always challenging. Maybe it is something that needs to be experienced and absorbed. Rather than dissected and understood. If it is to be Godard’s last feature then there seems something appropriate in his conclusion that ‘there needs to be a revolution.’




‘Three Faces’ Film Review: Once Again, Jafar Panahi Is Modest But Profound

Cannes 2018: The Iranian director is officially forbidden from making films for 20 years, but “Three Faces”. Is the latest exceptional work he’s made in the face of that ban.


For the past few years, Iranian director Jafar Panahi has been sending a series of quietly confounding films to festivals that he’s not allowed to attend. “Three Faces,” which premiered this weekend at the Cannes Film Festival. Is the latest of these little examples of his cinematic sleight-of-hand, and another Panahi gem that has more on its mind than it lets on.

“Three Faces” is typical of the canny director’s output in the way it’s modest but profound. Leisurely but urgent, a portrait of a country disguised as a meandering road movie.

But it’s not like he’s using misdirection or only pretending to be modest and leisurely. Panahi’s films are all those things at once. And this one is particularly timely at this year’s Cannes. In the way he manages, without openly criticizing his home country. To sketch a portrait of how the refusal to give women much agency in their lives is ingrained in the society.

Wim Wenders: ‘Pope speaks directly to viewer in new film’
Wim Wenders, writer and director of the new film “Pope Francis – A Man of His Word”, in an exclusive interview with Vatican News, says the movie allows the Holy Father “to speak directly about all his concerns and all the issues that matter to him.”
As the Holy Father celebrates 5 years of his Papacy, we’re going to preview the trailer of your new film: “Pope Francis – A Man of His Word”. What does this film mean to you? How did the film come to be, and what do you expect?

WW: Not in my wildest dreams would I have expected to make a film about Pope Francis. When I got the letter with an invitation to come to the Vatican and discuss with Don Dario Viganó the possibility of a film about the Pope. I first took a deep breath, and then I walked around the block. It seemed that such a project would represent a huge responsibility, at least it would be a whole different kind of task than any film I had made before. But of course I would go and find out what Don Dario had in mind.

Pope Francis – A Man of His Word

It turned out that he offered me Carte Blanche, let me write a concept and define myself the film I could imagine. And the Vatican would not interfere, and would open its archive for us. I said yes. Of course.

It needed a while for my concept to take shape, for the financing to fall into place and for the first shoot with Pope Francis to be organized. From that first interview to the finished film it took almost 2 years, 3 more long interview sessions and a shoot in Assisi. The home town of Saint Francis. And months and months in the editing room, until the film had taken its final shape. And it fulfilled the high hopes I had for it: that it would allow Pope Francis to speak directly to every viewer and listener. Almost face to face, about all his concerns and all the issues that matter to him. 

The Pope was involved in the shooting… Did anything happen on the film set that has particularly impressed you?

WW: Oh yes! I was very impressed how open Pope Francis was to each question, and how directly and spontaneously he answered. And after each of our four long sessions. He took time to shake everybody’s hands, and did not make any difference between producer or director or electrician or assistant.


You once said the Pope “is a true example of a man who lives what he preaches”. What well-wishes do you have for him today?

WW: I had the highest regard for Pope Francis before. I ever met him, just from seeing him on television and from reading his sermons. Or his encyclicals. But meeting him eye to eye. Then also seeing and hearing him every day. In the editing room. Not only in our own interviews. But also his many talks all over the world, to refugees. Prisoners. Scientists, children, rich or poor or regular people. Made me realize how courageous he was. How fearless. And finally, that would be my wish: that he never loses that relentless courage.

Whenever he left our set, the last thing he said was. “Pray for me!”. And that wasn’t just his way of saying good-bye. He meant it. And I’ve heard him ask the same from people all over the world.  From all these people (including my little film crew). Finally, for whom he represents a man whose word we can trust in. That has become such a rare and precious thing today. A man who is not acting for himself, but for the common good.

An outstanding ‘collage’ of past. Present and future Kimiavi’s iconoclastic masterpiece. The Mongols is a reflection on modernity and cultural imperialism in 1970s Iran. The self-reflective film creates a critical reflection on the expanding presence of TV screens and antennas in Iran’s. Poor villages with a re-enactment of the Mongols 13th century invasion. Its innovation and self-reflection led the French critic Henri Chapier to label Kimiavi ‘Le Godard Iranian.’

L’absolu of Boris Sibé

Theater Nest – April 23/ May 4, 2019 Thionville, (France)


The Absolute is first and foremost an experience outside the walls. Since the viewer will enter, not in a theater. But in a huge silo of silver metal. Designed by the company Les Choses de Rien. In this strange circular marquee of sheet metal. On four floors, the audience will be overhanging the artist. Circassian along two helical ramps. This industrial space will become metamorphosed. In turn, image well. Court. Chasm. Way to infinity in a poetic show. Interrogating our usual perceptions.

Blanca Li Company

Theater National of Dance Chaillot – Nov 08 to 15, 2018


Beware, this is a committed show. In an intricate fusion between visual perfection. Ecological urgency and hypersensitive feelings. The choreographer Blanca Li shakes our consciousness. Whilst delighting the senses.

Air, water, earth, fire. To talk about the threats weighing on our planets. Blanca Li summons the four elements. On an immaculate stage. She implements with an enchanting and unique scenography. The complex and ambiguous relationship that we have with our environment. A veil of aerial tulle imagined by Pierre Attrait is in turn a cloud. The ground, the sky, or wind. And becomes the base of suggestive videos. In the midst of the recreated nature.

15 dancers accustomed to all styles embody our humanity. Their organic dance elates beauty. But also the fragility of an ecosystem in danger of which we are just one of the components. The lyric or percussive music composed by Tao Gutierrez intensely underlines. The multiple forms of our relationship to the world. Produced by Chaillot last season. This creation acts as an alarm for our future and is more than ever of concern today.

Judson Dance Theater Performance : “The Work Is Never Done”

MOMA – Until Feb 03, 2019 New-Yok (USA)


For a brief period in the early 1960s. A group of choreographers. Visual artists. Composers, and filmmakers gathered in Judson Memorial Church. A socially engaged Protestant congregation in New York’s Greenwich Village. For a series of workshops that ultimately redefined what counted as dance. The performances that evolved from these workshops. Incorporated everyday movements—gestures drawn from the street or the home. Their structures were based on games. Simple tasks, and social dances. Spontaneity and unconventional methods of composition were emphasized. The Judson artists investigated the very fundamentals of choreography. Stripping dance of its theatrical conventions. And the result, according to Village Voice critic Jill Johnston was the most exciting new dance in a generation.

Martin Zimmermann – EINS ZWEI DREI

Biennale of the Dance of Lyon – Until 30 Sept, 2018 Villeurbanne (French)


Packed with visual collisions. Zimmermann’s wordless theatre has circus. Dance and visual-arts roots. Here, with live piano accompaniment. A tasteful museum space catalyses. In tragi-comic manner. The violence and complexity of human passion As the three characters (at once actors. Dancers and circus performers). Come up against the institution’s walls and their own limits. And things go irresistibly askew. What chance survival. Will the seeds of conflict finally cause them to snap, or rewrite the rules?

Saburo Teshigawara / Rihoko Sato

National Theater of Dance – Sept 27 / Oct 5, 2018 Paris (France)


As one of the most influential Japanese creators of his time. Saburo Teshigawara renews on stage with his accomplice and dancer Rihoko Sato for The Idiot. Not really an adaptation, more a reinterpretation..

“I knew it would be impossible to create a choreography taken from such a novel”. Saburo Teshigawara said about Dostoievski’s The Idiot. “But this impossibility has been key to approach and create something completely new. A dance that only exists in the present”. A duo transforming each voice, each cry or murmur into movement. It is not however question of a narrative dance. But more the idea of recreating a body language. The gestural grammar developed and magnified by Rihoko Sato and Saburo Teshigawara are rich in tempo. vVrtuoso and slow motion. The result is a labyrinth of sensations in which one can get los. Or find oneself. The Idiot, after major pieces such as Flexible SilenceGlass Tooth or Miroku, testifies once again to Saburo Teshigawara’s creativity. Whether it be with group or duo pieces, he uses the body as an amazing artistic laboratory.

The Lowry – Oct 10/12, 2018 Salford (England)

Imagery from legendary filmmakers. The Quay Brothers creates a dream-like experience. And a live orchestra playing the rich music of Witold Lutosławski. Adds to the otherworldly atmosphere.

They combine in a contemporary re-imagining of a classic play by Calderón. A study of desires as recognisable in today’s world as at any time in the past 400 years. The longing for authentic experience, and the need to dream.

Sydney Opera House – 08/12 Aug, 2018 Sydney (Australia)


Two women dance on stage inside an increasingly small space. One is clothed. The other naked, both moving in perfect sync with the other. This is Split a  work of contemporary dance by fearless Australian Lucy Guerin.


After a successful run in 2017. Split is returning to the stage to awe audiences with its stark. But beautiful portrayal of power, vulnerability and synchronicity. Bringing Split to life on stage are dancers Melanie Lane and Lilian Steiner. The latter of which has won a Helpmann Award. For best dancer in 2017 (with Melanie Lane nominated in the same category).

As the size of the area in which the dancers move decreases. The choreography becomes fraught with tension. Ambiguity surrounds the performance. The dancers locked in an struggle. Are they in a relationship. Or are they two halves of the same person?

Split isn’t explicit in its meaning and it doesn’t need to be. Also, with the powerful performances of Lane and Steiner. Enthralling audiences.Backed. By a rhythmic and complex percussive. Score by UK composer Scanner (real name Robin Rimbaud). Finally, Split is an hour of frantic, mesmerising contemporary dance.

Alain Platel

Festival de Marseille 06/07/08 July – France


For more than thirty years, the choreographer and director Alain Platel and his collective, Ballets C de la B (C for Contemporary, B for Belgium), has constantly pushed the boundaries of dance, theatre and music. A unique combination of grace and triviality, the grotesque and the sublime, charged with human fragility, his work takes audiences to the limits of human suffering with delicacy and empathy.

Alain Platel trained as a remedial teacher and is a self-taught theatre director. In 1984, with friends and family members. Also, he set up a dance company operating as a collective. The ballets C de la B. Emma (1988). Bonjour Madame (1993). La tristeza complice (1995) and Lets Op Bach (1998). Brought them international renown. With the author Arne Sierens. Hence, he staged several shows supporting the development of the children’s theatre company Victoria in Ghent. In 2003 he staged Wolf for the dance. Then the choral project. Coup de Chœurs for the opening of KVS. Which marked the beginning. Of a close collaboration with Fabrizio Cassol. In 2006. VSPRS heralded a change of direction. Finally, the exuberance of his early. Shows giving way to greater introspection. And nervousness and revealing a world of impulses and aspirations. As well as violence (Nine Finger (2007). With Benjamin Verdonck and Fumiyo Ikeda).

For Pina

This approach then evolved (Pitié ! (2008). Out of Context. For Pina (2010). Exploring how to express intense feelings and aspiring to something beyond the individual. In 2010 he staged Gardenia in collaboration with Frank Van Laecke. Then in 2012, for the Teatro Real in Madrid. Produced C(H)ŒURS, which explored the dangerous beauty of the group and was his most ambitious project ever. The political overtones of his shows such as Tauberbach (2014). And Coup fatal (2014) are rooted in his zest for life and the energy that bursts onto the stage. Expressing ways of living and surviving in terrible circumstances.

The same instinct for life drove the dancers. In their quest for possibie  in Nicht schlafen (2016). In parallel. Alain Platel works on more personal large-scale choreographic projects. Also, and has been involved in several films on dance. With the British filmmaker Sophie Fiennes. I Sing in 2001.  And working alone (Les Ballets de-ci de-là  in 2006).




Chinese choreographer Wen Hui draws up the inventory of 1960-1970 Maoism.


Wen Hui translates into dance the traces. Left on bodies by the amazing movements of Chinese society. Through gesture and backed by files. Interviews and videos. Also, She breaks the bonds between history and intimacy. In “Red”, she revives “. Red Detachment of Women”. The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution iconic ballet. Did this choreography stand the test of time?. A fascinating history(ies) book, open-body.

Michael Jackson: On the Wall review

National Portrait Gallery – Until October 21 2018 London

HIs every crotch grab sent jolts of ecstasy across the globe, his every spasmodic hip thrust left the world reeling. That’s an inhuman level of power for one human to have. It ended up being too much for Michael Jackson, and maybe too much for the rest of us too, which may explain how the National Portrait Gallery can put together a whole show of art inspired by MJ and without it being mega-cheesy or ultra-dull. I had more reservations than an over-hyped London restaurant when it came to this exhibition Concert Music, but let it be publicly stated here: I was wrong.

But don’t come expecting biographical information, chronology, memorabilia or easy narratives – this is about artistic reactions to the king of pop, not chintzy nostalgia. The show treats MJ as the ultimate symbol of fame, obsession, talent and the power of black America. It begins with the MJ you expect. He’s sat on a horse, clad in ludicrous armour, in an obscenely ostentatious Kehinde Wiley portrait. Showy, proud, showbiz. And then look at the starry-eyed adoration in Andy Warhol’s manic documenting. But that’s the façade.

Susan Smith-Pinelo’s dancing cleavage, bouncing to ‘Working Day and Night’ across a series of screens, tells you infinitely more about the man. MJ made the world dance, and in the process opened floodgates of black sexuality and cultural pride. There are plenty of brilliant black artists here. Glenn Ligon paints MJ as a child as if it’s a self-portrait, Isaac Julien uses his face in collages, Auppau Junior Boakye-Yiadom attaches helium balloons to a pair of shoes, leaving them eternally on their tiptoes. This is MJ as a statement of the power and legitimacy of black America, a revolution in pop and culture.


But he also represents the absolute excesses of fame. Suddenly, MJ becomes twisted, troubled, fragmented. He’s Jesus in David Lachapelle’s photos, he’s the capitalist antichrist of communism in Dan Mihaltianu’s installation of masks, he’s the modern Baudelaire in Lorraine O’Grady’s photos. But he’s a ghostly spectre too. Jordan Wolfson obscures everything but MJ’s eyes in a glaring video, taken from the musician’s statement against accusations of child molestation. The show takes a very dark turn, and Wolfson’s piece is the most disturbing work here.

But maybe Candice Breitz’s video installation of 16 Germans singing the entirety of ‘Thriller’ start to finish sums it up best. In their MJ outfits and out of tune, obsessive voices, these hilarious, passionate doofuses make you realise that MJ never really existed: he was an idea, a god, an idol to worship.

Not everything here is brilliant, but as a whole, this exhibition is an incredible example of using art to decode, uncover and reveal myriad concepts and ideas. This is a show about fame and obsession, about how desperately we seek idols and how remorselessly we consume them. It’s also about how much impact one person can have on the world. That’s the true power of Michael Jackson: the way he makes you feel.

Martha Argerich (Argentina)

Concert Performance on 07 July 2018 Colmar (France)


There are few artists in the world that become a legend while alive. Martha Argerich is one of those rare pianists to have raised her art to dazzling heights. The exemplary story begins in her native Argentina. Where from the age of two and a half years, her precocious talent for the piano is identified. When she comes to Europe to continue her musical education. She has already performed on stage at the Teatro Colón. She retains the excellence of her outstanding play, full of ardor and sensitivity. From a long tradition of musicians including the famous Nikita Magaloff (friend of Prokofiev), Friedrich Gulda or Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli.

Martha Argerich won the Geneva Competition at the age of 16 years and three prizes at the Chopin Competition in Warsaw. All mapped out, her great career will however be like no other. Fiercely free, she has a reputation to never sign a contract and admirers still have painful memories of the long years in which she moved away from the scene. The recitals became a challenge for the artist who suffered from too much solitude. After which she decided in 1980 to only play either when accompanied by an orchestra, or surrounded by her friends such as Nelson Freir., Misha Maisky or Gidon Kremer. The most incredible is that even today, even though the orchestral repertoire is less bountiful than before, the great pianist Martha Argerich has lost none of her skills or talent. Each Concert Music is a suspended moment, stolen from eternity.

Gary Clark Jr.

Concert Saturday 14 July 2018 – Grande Halle De La Villette, Paris, (France)


Acclaimed as the savior of blues, Gary Clark, Jr. has shared the stage with many legends of rock and roll. His live performances, as well as his recordings, blend rock, soul and blues, infusing fluid guitar with a guttural howl and a falsetto trill that mix together. Despite his roots, Clark comes across as someone who is forging something unique in the Concert Music world. More specifically, his 2010 self-titled EP debuts his ability to explore various genres of music, while demonstrating his independence and distinctiveness from the heavily saturated music industry.

Born and raised in Austin and rockin’ a guitar since the age of 12, Clark played small gigs throughout his teens – until he met promoter Clifford Antone, proprietor of the Austin music club, Antone’s, which was the launching pad for Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimmie Vaughan. Soon after meeting Clifford, Clark began to play with an array of musical icons, including Vaughan, who, among Vaughan and others in the Austin music community helped Clark along his musical path, facilitating his ascent in the Texas rock & roll scene. Today, Clark is one of the many black musicians in rock & roll who are resurrecting the blues for a mdern-day audience. Critics claim his music highlights how the influence of rock and roll and the blues have ubiquitously shaped virtually every medium of music over the past century, ranging from hip-hop to country music.

Bill Traylor

By Valérie Rousseau, Debra Purden (USA)


Born into slavery around 1853/4 on a cotton plantation in Benton. Alabama, Traylor has become one of the most important self-taught artists of the twentieth century. And certainly one of the most celebrated African-American artists. Along with Thorton Dial and William Edmondson. The story of Bill Traylor’s life and work is a remarkable one. It is a story that deserves attention both nationally and internationally.

This publication. Generously illustrated with full-page high-quality reproductions. Provides a close examination of Traylor’s recurrent themes. Composition schemes. Favored iconography, and contextual information related to the artist’s biography. Creative process and tools. Visual environment, and artistic mindset.


Each artwork is considered in a context beyond that of an isolated image. And in response to one another. Forming a series of intricate and consistent narratives. Intriguingly cinematic in its development. The elements of Traylor’s biography are the anchors of an individual mythology. Instead of merely being a basic depiction. The subject becomes a visual statement structuring Traylor’s mind. Bringing together hidden symbols from Kongo Vodou. Hoodoo. Southern Baptist. Freemasonry, and Blues sources, as well as layers of references. Slavery, uncensored violence in the Jim Crow era. And turbulence within the black enclave known as ‘Dark Town’ in Montgomery, Alabama.

This is no material for the faint of heart! Many photos date back from the late 1970s and the 1990s. Others are more recent. (the latest, of a street musician playing guitar in a bear mask in Mauerpark, is from 2015). But strangely enough. As shot through Zownir’s signature high-contrast B&W lens. They all show a city that’s retained the same raw. Hedonistic beauty that made us fall in love with it. The sleaze, ruins and junkyards. So dear to this tough romantic might be slowly growing extinct. But Zownir hasn’t given up on “his” Berlin. A testament to this city’s enduring dystopian beauty. By a man who’s withheld his gaze.

The Man Who Never Stopped Sleeping

Aharon Appelfeld  (Romanian Author)


Erwin doesn’t remember much about his journey across Europe. When the war finally ended because he spent most of it asleep. Carried by other survivors as they emerged from their hiding places. Or were liberated from the camps. And made their way to the shores of Naples. Where they filled refugee camps and wondered what was to become of them. As he struggles to stay awake. Erwin becomes part of a group of boys. Being rigorously trained both physically and mentally by an emissary from Palestine. For life in their new home.

The fog of sleep slowly begins to lift. And when Erwin and his fellow clandestine immigrants are released by British authorities from the detention camp in Atlit. He and his comrades are assigned to a kibbutz. Where they learn how to tend to the land and speak their new language. But a part of Erwin desperately clings to the past–to memories of his parents. To his mother tongue. To the Ukrainian city where he was born–and he knows. That despite what he is being told. Who he was is just as important as who he is now becoming.

The Bible.

When he is wounded in an engagement with snipers. Erwin must spend long months recovering from multiple surgeries. And trying to regain the use of his legs. As he exercises his body. He exercises his mind as well. Copying passages from the Bible. Also, in his newly acquired Hebrew and working up the courage to create. His own texts in this language both old and new. Hoping to succeed as a writer where his beloved. Tormented father had failed. With the support of his friends and of other survivors. And with the encouragement of his mother (who visits him in his dreams). Erwin takes his first tentative steps with his crutches–and with his pen.

The Rise and Fall of Classical Greece

Josiah Ober (US)


Lord Byron described Greece as great, fallen, and immortal, a characterization more apt than he knew. Through most of its long history, Greece was poor. But in the classical era, Greece was densely populated and highly urbanized. Many surprisingly healthy Greeks lived in remarkably big houses and worked for high wages at specialized occupations. Middle-class spending drove sustained economic growth and classical wealth produced a stunning cultural efflorescence lasting hundreds of years.

Why did Greece reach such heights in the classical period―and why only then? And how, after “the Greek miracle” had endured for centuries, did the Macedonians defeat the Greeks, seemingly bringing an end to their glory? Drawing on a massive body of newly available data and employing novel approaches to evidence, Josiah Ober offers a major new history of classical Greece and an unprecedented account of its rise and fall.


Ober argues that Greece’s rise was no miracle but rather the result of political breakthroughs and economic development. The extraordinary emergence of citizen-centered city-states transformed Greece into a society that defeated the mighty Persian Empire. Yet Philip and Alexander of Macedon were able to beat the Greeks in the Battle of Chaeronea in 338 BCE, a victory made possible by the Macedonians’ appropriation of Greek innovations. After Alexander’s death, battle-hardened warlords fought ruthlessly over the remnants of his empire. But Greek cities remained populous and wealthy, their economy and culture surviving to be passed on to the Romans―and to us.

A compelling narrative filled with uncanny modern parallels, this is a book for anyone interested in how great civilizations are born and die.

The Underground Railroad

Colson Whitehead (US)


Cora is a young slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. An outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is on the cusp of womanhood—where greater pain awaits. And so when Caesar, a slave who has recently arrived from Virginia, urges her to join him on the Underground Railroad, she seizes the opportunity and escapes with him. In Colson Whitehead’s ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor: engineers and conductors operate a secret network of actual tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil.

Cora embarks on a harrowing flight from one state to the next, encountering, like Gulliver, strange yet familiar iterations of her own world at each stop. As Whitehead brilliantly re-creates the terrors of the antebellum era, he weaves in the saga of our nation, from the brutal abduction of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day. The Underground Railroad is both the gripping tale of one woman’s will to escape the horrors of bondage—and a powerful meditation on the history we all share.

My Emily Dickinson

Susan Howe (US)


For Wallace Stevens, “Poetry is the scholar’s art.” Susan Howe―taking the poet-scholar-critics Charles Olson, H.D. And William Carlos Williams (among others) as her guides―embodies that art in her 1985. My Emily Dickinson (winner of the Before Columbus Foundation Book Award). Howe shows ways in which earlier scholarship had shortened Dickinson’s intellectual reach by ignoring the use to which she put her wide reading. Giving close attention to the well-known poem. “My Life had stood―a Loaded Gun.” Home tracks Dickens, Browning, Emily Brontë, Shakespeare, and Spenser, as well as local Connecticut River Valley histories. Puritan sermons, captivity narratives books, and the popular culture of the day. “Dickinson’s life was language and a lexicon her landscape. Forcing, abbreviating, pushing, padding, subtracting, riddling, interrogating, re-writing, she pulled text from text….”

Paulo Coelho (Brazil)

Drawing on the rich experience of his own life. Best-selling author Paulo Coelho takes us back in time to re-live the dreams of a generation that longed for peace and dared to challenge the established social order. In Hippie, he tells the story of a young Brazilian man. Paulo, and Karla, a Dutch woman in her twenties, who share a journey of self-discovery aboard the Magic Bus, as it travels from Amsterdam to Kathmandu in 1970. In his most autobiographical novel to date. Paulo Coelho interweaves adventure, philosophy, and the true stories of his own life to give readers an essential book for our time.

Hippie, Paulo Coelho takes us back in time to re-live the dream of a generation that longed for peace and dared to challenge the established social order–authoritarian politics. Conservative modes of behavior, excessive consumerism, and an unbalanced concentration of wealth and power.


Following the “three days of peace and music” at Woodstock. The 1969 gathering in Bethel, New York that would change the world forever, hippie paradises began to emerge all around the world. In the Dam Square in Amsterdam. Long-haired young people wearing vibrant clothes and burning incense could be found meditating. Playing music, and discussing sexual liberation. The expansion of consciousness and the search for an inner truth. They were a generation refusing to live the robotic and unquestioning life that their parents had known.

At this time, Paulo is a young, skinny Brazilian with a goatee and long, flowing hair who wants to become a writer. He sets off on a journey in search of freedom and a deeper meaning for his life: first, with a girlfriend, on the famous “Death Train to Bolivia,” then on to Peru and later hitchhiking through Chile and Argentina.

His travels take him further, to the famous square in Amsterdam, where Paulo meets Karla. She convinces Paulo to join her on a trip to Nepal. Aboard the Magic Bus that travels across Europe and Central Asia to Kathmandu. They embark on a journey in the company of fascinating fellow travelers. Each of whom has a story to tell, and each of whom will undergo a transformation. Changing their priorities and values, along the way. As they travel together, Paulo and Karla explore their own relationship, an awakening on every level that brings both of them to a choice and a decision that sets the course for their lives thereafter.

British Books Publishers Fear Brexit Will Bring a U.S. Invasion

LONDON — Atopening of the London Books  Fair on Tuesday, a mobile massage company set up a row of stools for anyone in need of a shoulder and neck rub. It’s been a feature of the fair for years, but the service has never seemed more timely.

The Olympia exhibition center in West Kensington teemed with British publishers and editors, a cohort badly in need of stress relief these days. Britain’s looming departure from the European Union has set many people here on edge.

“Because the details haven’t been worked out yet, it’s hard to know what is coming next.” said Francis Bickmore, a director at Canongate, a Scottish publisher. “I think we’re sort of in denial.”

Nearby, Nick Barley, who runs the Edinburgh International Books Festival, was more blunt. “Half the time” he said, “people are scared out of their minds.”

Britain’s vote to leave the union produced a brief boomlet here for publishers, which hurried out titles such as “The Brexit Survival Activity Books,” “The Brexit Cook books” and, of course, the latest popular riff on Enid Blyton’s classic children’s books, “Five Escape Brexit Island.” Since then, the national referendum has produced something very different for the business: a whole lot of anxiety.

Using multicultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, and stories. Dr. Estes helps women reconnect with the healthy, instinctual. Visionary attributes of the Wild Woman archetype.

Dr. Estes has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and life-giving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul.



Philip Roth, the Incomparable American Novelist, Has Died at Eighty-Five

Philip Roth,a fearless novelist who wrote about Jewish life and male sexual identity, died Tuesday night at a hospital in New York.

No more writing

In 2012, Roth announced that his most recent novel.”Nemesis,”.Published two years earlier about a polio outbreak in New Jersey. Would be his last. He made the decision after he reread all his books.

After he stopped writing. He spent his free time reading, swimming and meeting friends.
“He was such a driven perfectionist. So when he felt his power ebbing, he wanted to quit at the top of his game, and he did,” Thurman said.

Military and teaching

Roth was born in Newark. New Jersey, on March 19, 1933. Philip briefly attended the Newark branch of Rutgers University before. He transferred to Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, to discover “the rest of America,” according to the Philip Roth Society. He earned his master’s degree from the University of Chicago in 1955.
Following graduation. He enlisted in the Army but was discharged after he suffered a back injury. He returned to his Chicago alma mater. Where he was an English instructor while he wrote fiction.

1920, the birth of the modern woman

Museo del Traje – Nov 17/ Jan 06, 2019 Madrid (Spain)


The woman of the 1920s, independent. Hard-working, flirtatious, with her straight suit. And her small hat stuck in, is born of a Europe devastated by the First World War. And decimated by the Spanish Flu. This modern woman. Who increasingly has a presence in universities and in jobs. Previously dominated by men and who continues to fight for their right to vote. Seeks above all comfort without sacrificing elegance.


If there is a hat that defines the time. There is no doubt that it is the cloche. French word that means bell. Cloche alludes to the shape of the hat. That although hardly varies in form throughout its reign. Yes that shows a great diversity in what refers to materials and finishes. Other hats that triumph are the turban, the hat and three-cornered hat. The headdress at night, and of course the wide-brimmed hat that despite its. Detractors does not just disappear.

This is an exhibition that will cause delight among hat and fashion lovers. As well as a well-deserved tribute to the modern and elegant woman of the twenties.

Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro

Museum of Arts and Design – Until Sep 09, 2018 (New-York)


The 1970s saw a number of artistic reactions to the Pop Art. Minimalist and Conceptualist aesthetics of the previous decade—among them. The Pattern and Decoration movement (often abbreviated to P&D). Which borrowed motifs from craft traditions particularly. Weaving usually excluded from fine art. Because many of these disciplines were associated with so-called women’s work. Pattern and Decoration had a feminist slant. Most decidedly in the work of Miriam Schapiro (1923–2015). One of P&D’s founder (not all of the artists in the group, however, were female).

This show revisits the legacy of Pattern. And Decoration by taking the Schapiro’s oeuvre as a point of departure. Hanging a selection of her self-styled mixed-media femmages alongside contributions by notable contemporary artists influenced by Schapiro. Including Sanford Biggers. Ruth Root and Jeffrey Gibson among others.

Hussein Chalayan

Fashion Stylist – (Cypriot-born Turkish)


Chalayan was born in the Turkish community of Nicosia on the island of Cyprus in 1970. His parents separated when he was a child. At the age of eight, he joined his father, who had moved to the United Kingdom. Chalayan was sent to a private school in London when he was twelve, but returned to Cyprus to study for his A-level examinations. He went back to London and attended Central Saint Martin’s College at the age of nineteen to study fashion. Chalayan rose to fashion fame soon after he received his B.A.Degree from Central Saint Martin’s in 1993. His graduating collection, titled The Tangent Flows, was the now infamous series of buried garments that were exhumed just before the show and presented with a text that explained the process.

Eckhaus Latta: “Possessed”

Whitney Museum of American Art – Aug03/Oct08, 2018 New-York


This summer, the Whitney Museum of American Art will present the first museum solo exhibition of Eckhaus Latta, the New York-and Los Angeles-based fashion label, founded in 2011 by Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta. Eckhaus Latta: Possessed highlights the work of this compelling young design team who belong to a new generation of designers operating at the intersection of fashion and contemporary art. The exhibition, part of the Museum’s emerging artist series, will be on view in the first-floor John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Gallery from August 3 through October 8, 2018. Access to the gallery is free of charge.

Eckhaus Latta’s fashion designs—for which they are currently finalists for the 2018 LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers—explore, in part, identity and reflect the fluid nature of gender and sexuality. While they fully participate in the fashion system, Latta and Eckhaus remain self-aware of their roles in consumer society. Their recognizable designs have featured experimental knitwear; a wide range of materials including lace, rust, and recycled fabrics; and a general approach that supersedes gender binaries. At times, models are sent down the runway wearing clothes that challenge traditional definitions of male and female. Vanessa Friedman, fashion director and chief fashion critic at the New York Times, wrote that their clothes “are a kind of petri dish of associative splicing,” and that they “grapple honestly with what is on the designers’ minds: questions of gender and difference and the details of fallible beauty…”

This will be the first exhibition related to fashion stylist at the Museum in 21 years, since The Warhol Look: Glamour, Style, Fashion (1997).

Story of Gabrielle Chanel and Deauville 1912 (France)

ÆRENA Gallerie – July 01 /31, 2018


ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens is delighted to bring you, Fame – Is It Any Wonder, a showcase of Robert Mars’ latest works. Through graphic compositions and rich colors, Mars explores his fascination with the Golden Age of American popular culture and the icons of the 1950s and 1960s. Drawing inspiration from the near-mythical fame that surrounded celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn – and before the all-encompassing presence of the internet – Mars’ fresh approach is a timeless, vintage aesthetic.

Mars begins his paintings with planes of color and sheets of brown paper, then layers paint and vintage newspaper unique to the subject’s era. Influenced by quilting, he collages historical icons and high-profile brands, such as Chanel and Dom Perignon, with layers of more mundane paper ephemera. Mars then sands areas of the composition allowing specific elements of the underpainting to emerge and create lively patterns throughout. With a final layer of thick resin, Mars seals his composition, rendering the image a time capsule of America’s glamorous past.

J. Paul Getty Museum – June 26–October 21, 2018 Los Angeles (US)


The 10 decades encompassed in Icons of Style: A Century of Fashion Photography, 1911–2011, opening today at the Getty in LA, conclude at a telling time in culture. By 2011, Instagram and Snapchat were born, and street style blogs had become as much of a draw for fashion lovers as the print pages of high-fashion glossies. While traditional fashion photography wasn’t on the wane, it was doubtless undergoing a shift, propelled in large part by the merely curious and creative, who got in the habit of grabbing a Nikon or iPhone and simply pointing and shooting for themselves.

The Sartorialist’s Scott Schuman, along with his former partner, fellow street-style chronicler Garance Doré, were two of the of the lensmen ushering in this new era. Chronologically, Schuman’s work bookends that of two others featured in the exhibition, Edward Steichen and Baron Adolf de Meyer, both considered originators in the field and worked extensively for Condé Nast and Hearst.

Whereas Steichen and de Meyer were tasked with elevating the then-nascent genre to the level of highly romanticized images created by the late 19th-century illustrators like Erté, by the beginning of the 21st century, fashion photography would be stripped of much of its artifice. In lieu of carefully coiffed, exactingly styled models, Schuman et al. would shoot urban dandies, colorful gallerists, and polished magazine editors, all (attractive) civilians who caught his eye.

Portraiture from the decades in the interim reflected the fashion zeitgeist, from Irving Penn’s regimented ’50s studio glamour and Neil Barr’s off-kilter ’60s psychedelic vibes to Guy Bourdin’s louche ’70s surrealism and Herb Ritts’s athletic ’80s posturing.


Organized roughly by decade and separated into galleries within a gallery. The exhibition offers a series of striking visual time capsules. Conjuring specific moments in history and popular culture ranging from the end of World War II to the dawn of “heroin chic. Household names like Gordon Parks. Man Ray, and Helmut Newton feature. As do lesser-known artists like Glen Luchford. Toni Frissell, and Corinne Day.

Clothing, including a black, nipped-waist Dior .“New Look” dress, and an unforgiving, bias-cut ivory satin Vionnet gown complement the photography. As do video film segments, lending the show an apropos Hollywood spin. While the “fashion show”. Scene in George Cukor’s The Women is well-trod cinephile sartorial ground. Ditto the “think pink” sequence from Funny Face—fewer people are likely aware of a 1979 Chanel No. 5. “Share the Fantasy” commercial directed by none other than Ridley Scott.

Paul Martineau.

Granted, the focus remains on photography, a medium which exhibition curator Paul Martineau still finds uniquely compelling. “I continue to be intrigued by the ability of some photographs to transcend their original commercial function in order to be considered true works of fine art,” he says. Whether this ultimately translates to images from the current social media era—and another exhibition—remains to be seen.

Mona von Bismarck (US)

Meet the 20th century’s queen of couture: Frazier History Museum

Louisville, Kentucky (US) Until 29 July 2018


Before “Best Dressed” lists were overflowing with reality TV. Stars and movie celebrities, there was the original fashion icon. A Kentucky born femme fatal who was the first American to earn the coveted title.

Known for her trademark silver hair and aquamarine eyes, throngs of famous fashion designers admired the Countess Mona von Bismarck.

Think Chanel, Mainbocher, Lanvin, Vionnet. Lucien Lelong and her personal favorite, Balenciaga. Each was a fan of the Kentuckian’s sophisticated, classic and timeless style.

But how did these famous designers. End up so enamored with a woman who grew up in Louisville. Who, honestly, is someone you’ve probably never heard of?

That’s what the Frazier History Museum, 829 W. Main St., hopes to answer.

“Mona was the fashion reference for her era,” said Scott Rogers, who is working with the museum to curate a show about Bismarck’s fashion. And her place in international society. “She was a flawless symbol of elegance in western society. That is near impossible for anyone to repeat in this day.”

The V&A’s Next Major Fashion Exhibition Is All About Mary Quant And 60s Mini Skirts

Celebrating the swinging 60s.


As the much-anticipated Frida Kahlo exhibition draws ever closer. The V&A Museum have announced their next major fashion showcase, and it’s a good’un.

With previous shows displaying everything from the costumes of David Bowie and Alexander McQueen’s legendary fashion meets art pieces. To famous wedding dresses throughout the ages and examining the role shoes have played in providing pleasure and pain all over the world, the V&A is infamous for its commitment to history.

And their next major exhibition isn’t set to disappoint either. Simply titled, Mary Quant, the museum’s latest blockbuster fashion spectacle will be an ode to the legendary 1960s designer.


Mary Quant Exhibition


The first international retrospective of the revolutionary designer in nearly 50 years. Mary Quant will be a celebration of the swinging sixties designer.  Often credited with instigating the ‘youthquake’ movement and more notably, popularising the decade-defining mini skirt.


In addition to having unprecedented access to Mary Quant’s archive including over 200 acquired pieces. The V&A are also aiming to display original designs bought by women in the 1960s. And they’ve taken to social media to get the word out there. Curator Jenny Lister issued a nationwide callout using the hashtag #WeWantQuant and releasing the following statement:

‘We want to hear from women who wore Mary’s radical designs and experienced the appeal of the Mary Quant brand at first-hand. To help us tell these incredible stories. We are asking people to check attics, cupboards, as well as family photo albums, for the chance to feature in our exhibition.’


Mary Quant Exhibition


So, if you’re lucky enough to own an original mod mini skirt or an iconic Quant PVC raincoat, this is your chance to be part of fashion history.

Speaking on the retrospective of her work, Quant said, ‘The V&A is such a precious and iconic organisation for which I have the utmost admiration and respect, and it is a huge honour to be recognised by them with this dedicated exhibition and book.

‘It was a wonderfully exciting time and despite the frenetic, hard work we had enormous fun. We didn’t necessarily realise that what we were creating was pioneering, we were simply too busy relishing all the opportunities and embracing the results before rushing on to the next challenge!


Mary Quant Exhibition


‘Friends have been extremely generous in loaning, and in many cases, donating garments and accessories to the V&A which they have lovingly cherished for many years, so it will be fascinating to see what else will emerge! I am enormously grateful to have been involved with so many talented people whose contribution to that ground-breaking, revolutionary and memorable era will also be recognised.’

Alas, the exhibition won’t open until April 2019, but in the mean time you’ll find us wearing go-go boots and vinyl trench coats Quant-style.

Mary Quant runs at the Victoria & Albert Museum London –  from 6th April 2019 – 8th March 2020. Tickets will go on sale in Autumn 2018

Marimekko: Fashion Stylist Icon 1951 to 2018

Until 11 Jun 2018 – Melbourne


Established during the golden age of post-war modernism, Marimekko is the Finnish textile and fashion company that achieved international fame in the 1960s and 70s with its bold screen prints and pop art style graphics. Coinciding with the emerging liberation of women, the founding of Marimekko, or ‘Mary dress’ as the name literally translates, represented a pure concept; free from rules and constraints.


This exhibition traces Marimekko’s meteoric rise from the 1950s to the present, and explores the dualities that define its aesthetic. Its iconic fabric patterns and unconventional ready-to-wear outfits brought colour and informality to an otherwise self-conscious fashion world. With more than 60 outfits, swatches of original fabrics, homewares, sketches and other archival materials, the exhibition focuses on the work of the talented individuals who defined this local textile practice and created its internationally recognisable designs.
