Major exhibition explores the romantic fascination with the Scottish Highlands

Wild and Majestic: Romantic Visions of Scotland spans the period from the final defeat of the Jacobites at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 to the death of Queen Victoria in 1901.

EDINBURGH.- A major exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland this summer tells the fascinating story of how tartan, bagpipes and rugged, wild landscapes became established as enduring, internationally recognised symbols of Scottish identity and how Scotland became established in the popular imagination as a land of wilderness, heroism and history. Wild and Majestic: Romantic Visions of Scotland spans the period from the final defeat of the Jacobites at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 to the death of Queen Victoria in 1901. The exhibition explores the efforts made to preserve and revive Highland traditions in the wake of post-Jacobite persecution, depopulation and rapid socio-economic change. It shows how Scotland’s relationship with the European Romantic movement transformed external perceptions of the Highlands and was central to the birth of tourism in Scotland. These developments would in turn influence the relationship between the H ... More

BERLIN.- C/O Berlin is presenting the exhibition Elfie Semotan . Contradiction until 07 September 2019. The provocative slogan “Trau dich doch” (Just dare), which was part of a late-1970s advertising campaign for the Austrian brand Palmers, appeared on posters featuring photos of models in seductive lingerie—nothing short of scandalous at the time. The photographs by Austrian photographer Elfie Semotan bear witness to a new, hedonistic zeitgeist that was gradually challenging conventions through playful experimentation. To this day, her photographs have lost none of their cool elegance, imperfect beauty, and discreetly erotic subtexts. They often reveal much more than the subject matter suggests, and their astute references to iconic works of art history blur the boundaries between art and commercial photography. Semotan started her career as a photo model in Paris. ... More

Grete Marks exhibition at Pallant House Gallery marks Bauhaus centenary this summer   Fine Art Asia 2019 and Ink Asia 2019 to lead the peak season for art in Hong Kong   Exhibition features five site-specific installations exploring reciprocity in design, behaviors and methodologies

Grete Marks, Untitled, n.d, watercolour on paper.

CHICHESTER.- Grete Marks (1899-1990) was an artist who fought for her artistic integrity during some of the most turbulent moments of the 20th century. One of the first female students to be admitted to the famed Bauhaus school of art and design, Marks is best known for her ceramics, which were declared “degenerate” by the Nazis. This summer, Pallant House Gallery continues its mission to celebrate overlooked artists by telling Marks’ story through a free display of her previously neglected watercolour portraits. ‘Grete Marks: An Intimate Portrait’ explores how Marks forged an uncompromising path dedicated to making art on her terms during a period when her gender, religion, artistic medium and nationality each placed barriers in her way. The exhibition focuses on a series of intimate portrait paintings and drawings from the 1920s and 30s. It also marks the centenary of the foundation of the Bauhaus ... More

HOLON.- Design Museum Holon is presenting The Conversation Show, an original exhibition featuring five commissioned installations that explore the mutual interchange and creative process between leading designers working together as a duo or group. Each internationally renowned design studio created site-specific objects, spaces or interactive works that physically and conceptually express their creative dialogue and collaborative practice. “Design and communication are indefinitely tied together,” says Maya Dvash, Chief Curator of Design Museum Holon. “‘The Conversation Show’ showcases the layers of this notion – the conversation between creators themselves, as well as the dialogue between the designers and visitors.” “‘The Conversation Show’ represents a peculiar approach to design, focusing on the centrality of people and the way they interact with each other. It aims to analyze and portr ... More

COPENHAGEN.- With jellyfish sculpted in sugar and preserved in cooking oil, drag performers in red post office uniforms and bikini-clad deck chairs, art creates images of our present and future. On 17 August the exhibition Young Danish Art - Forecasting the Future opens at ARKEN. The exhibition is showing works by a young generation of artists with a political outlook and issues at heart. Young Danish Art - Forecasting the Future presents innovative and playful works that take the temperature of our society and explore national and global themes such as work culture, the sense of belonging and climate crisis. The exhibition offers unique insight into a young generation of artists and shows the forecasts art is making for our future. Work culture is a theme that several of the exhibition artists take up with works that revolve around value, tempo, productivity and identity.

Room 1, 2019 © Kévin Bray.

AMSTERDAM.- Foam 3h presents the work of Kévin Bray (France, 1989). There is likely no other artist who mixes and matches more than Kévin Bray. He graduated as a graphic designer and moves across the boundaries of various disciplines with ease. His work is a hybrid of techniques, motifs and formal languages in which he brings together painting, graphic design, sculpture, video, 3D photography and sound design. By investigating the particularities of a medium, and then stretching the visual codes, creative possibilities open up and give space to the unpredictable and otherworldly forms that are so characteristic of Bray. His work contains many art historical references but is equally apocalyptic, as if it were a backdrop for a science fiction story. For those that pay close attention to details, Kévin Bray's creative process is evident within his work. He intentionally exposes the different layers of his images and clearly displays the di ...

Pia Arke, Tupilakosaurus, 1999.

UMEĹ.- The exhibition brings together an outstanding selection of artworks—film and video, drawing and sculpture, installation and sound art—which invite the museum visitor to rethink the human position in the world, its relationship to all other forms of life and to the various complex ecologies that bond beings together. A growing awareness of living on an environmentally fragile planet has led artists to reconsider the role of art in responding to what is happening to our world. Many artists have been rethinking the relationship between humans and nature, the effects of changes to the earth’s climate and the ways in which different species are interrelated within a complex causes-effects relationship. Participating artists are Allora & Calzadilla (USA/Cuba), Pia Arke (Greenland), David Claerbout (Belgium), Marcus Coates (UK), Mary Beth Edelson (USA), Simone Forti (USA), Luca Frei (Switzerland/Sweden), Pierre Huyghe (France), Carsten Höller ...

Lisbon Architecture Triennale 2019: The Poetics of Reason to be held from October 3-December 2
LISBON.- Chief curated by the French architect Éric Lapierre, The Poetics of Reason states that, for all its subjective and non-scientific dimension, architecture does rest on reason, and its aim is to shed light onto the specificity of this reason. Indeed, the fact that architecture is grounded into rationality is key to its being understandable and shareable by everyone. As a result of a massification of construction, such a condition implies that everybody is entitled to understand architecture without a specific background in the field. The 5th edition of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale will open on October 3-5, 2019 and is composed by five main exhibitions that will take up one particular dimension of this theme, each, and will be presented in major cultural venues of Lisbon, this fall: Agriculture and Architecture: Taking the Country’s Side intends to ignite ...

The project is informed by artistic and activist practices that investigate how we relate to one another and to the world around us. The different works address inherent social tensions and the global dynamics of our time. The 20th century unfolded amidst the unstoppable drive of the modernist project centering on humanism and rationality, to the detriment and subjugation of all other life-worlds. The last decade was marked by the financial crash of 2008, coupled with unprecedented migration caused by unbearable violence against life, and highly disruptive ... More

Mario Vargas Llosa Interview: Literature Makes Citizens Critical



On a day like today, Italian painter Francesco Albani was born
August 17, 1578. Francesco Albani or Albano (17 March or 17 August 1578 - 4 October 1660) was an Italian Baroque painter. Albani never acquired the monumentality or tenebrism that was quaking the contemporary world of painters, and in fact, is derided often for his lyric, cherubim-filled sweetness, which often has not yet shaken the mannerist elegance. While Albani's thematic would have appealed to Poussin, he lacked the Frenchman's muscular drama. His style sometimes appears to befit the decorative Rococo more than of his time. In this image: Baptism of Christ ca 1640 (State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg.
