Michelangelo Antonioni's 1966 cult film Blow-Up and its various references to photography are th e focus of the Albertina photo exhibit of the same name. For the first time \, photographs classified according to thematic emphases will be shown whic h have proven to be characteristic for Antonioni's film in various respects \, and which also illustrate important artistic positions in the history of photography and art.
 \;
Blow-Up o ccupies a unique position\, not only in the history of film\, but also in t he history of photography. There is hardly another feature film that has sh own the diverse areas of photography in such a differentiated fashion\, and which attempts to fathom them in such a detailed and timeless manner. The photographic spectrum in Blow-Up is accordingly bro ad\, extending from fashion photography through social reporting and pop ar t to abstract photography. The Blow-Up exhibit pres ents these diverse themes and their relation to one another in several chap ters. In addition to film stills\, both works that can actually be seen in Blow-Up and photographs illuminating the cultural and artistic context of t he film production\, London of the Swinging Sixties\, will be shown. Among the exhibited photographers are thus found such central artists as David Ba iley\, Terence Donovan\, Richard Hamilton\, John Hilliard\, Don McCullin\, Ian Stephenson\, John Stezaker and many more.

\n


In addition to this\, the famous photos from Blow-Up of a pair of lovers in a park\, taken secretly by the protagonist of Ant onioni's story\, can also be viewed. The protagonist believes that he has " documented" a murder by chance with these images. However\, the photos turn out to provide only ambivalent evidence\, because even enlargements or blo w-ups of these photos don't reveal the presumed corpse. This cinematic stud y of the representation of images and their ambivalence has since provided the artistic basis for the works of a variety of contemporary photographers \, which demonstrates that Blow-Up has retained its cultural relevance since its creation in 1966.

The exhibit Dü\;rer\, Michelangelo\, Rubens - The 100 Masterworks of the Albertina for the first time shows around 100 top-class masterpieces from the collection of t he Albertina in the context of the chequered and exciting life story of its founders\, Prince Albert of Saxony\, Duke of Teschen and Archduchess Marie Christine. The large-scale presentation unites the highlights of the colle ction\, from Michelangelo through Rembrandt and Rubens to Caspar David Frie drich. The centrepiece of the Albertina\, Dü\;rer's famous "Young Hare" \, is now once again accessible to an interested public in the context of t his exhibit after a decade-long period of grace.

The time spa n documented by the large-scale exhibit extends from 1738 to 1822: from the age of the courtly Baroque under Maria Theresia and the Enlightenment unde r Joseph II\, through the premodern period and the years of the revolutions in America and Europe to the Biedermeier period of the Vormä\;rz (the years leading up to the revolutions of 1848 in Germany) following the Vienn a Congress. \; The stations in life of the founders of the collection\, Prince Albert of Saxony\, Duke of Teschen and Archduchess Marie Christine\ , including Dresden\, Rome\, Paris\, Brussels and Vienna\, present the lead ing centres of art and politics\, and in the process provide insight into t he multi-layered networks of collectors and art dealers\, the feudal life o f the European aristocracy\, as well as the political and intellectual reor ientation under the auspices of the Enlightenment.

Loans from throughout the world supplement the holdings of the Albertina in this prese ntation and convey a poignant picture of the circumstances and the passion for collecting of the namesake of the Albertina. A splendid service\, as we ll as paintings and busts of the Duke and his wife\, but also other importa nt documents of the time\, such as the hat of Napoleon\, worn by him at the Battle of Eylau\, originate from\, among other sources\, the Metropolitan Museum of Art\, the Louvre\, the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden\, the V atican and various private collections.

In Praise of Man-Made Nature
K arrie Jacobs


The real lesson of New York City's celebr ated High Line is not that every city needs an elevated linear park\, but t hat the features of our cities that we've long disused\, ignored and writte n off as blight are actually valuable components of our unnatural natural e nvironment. Long regarded as liabilities\, abused rivers like Newark's Pass aic\, the Los Angeles River and Houston's Buffalo Bayou are being transform ed into assets. Even the most obstructive\, no-man&rsquo\;s-land-generating form of urban infrastructure&mdash\;the elevated expressway&mdash\;can\, w ith skill and imagination\, be incorporated into metropolitan form of natur e. While Frederick Law Olmsted's 19th century landscapes afforded an escape from the urban life\, the 21st century approach to man-made nature offers a deeper immersion into our changing cities.

Karrie Ja cobs is a professional observer of the man-made landscape. For ten years she wrote the "America" column for Metropolis magazine abou t how ideas and strategies in architecture and design play out in the real world. She's currently a faculty member at DCrit\, the School of Visual Art s' graduate program in design criticism\, a contributing editor at Trav el + Leisure and a frequent contributor to Architect. She is author of The Perfect $100\,000 House: A Trip Across America and < em>Back in Pursuit of a Place to Call Home
(Viking\, 2006) and was the founding editor in chief of Dwell Magazine. Prior to launching Dwell\, Karrie served as the architecture critic of New York Magazin e and was also the founding executive editor of Benetton&rsquo\;s Color s Magazine.

In early January 2014\, a group of third year students from the Painting and Printmaking Department at The Glasgow School of Art embark ed on a project\, to make work in response to the third and last exhibition in The Scottish Colourist Series\, looking at the work of J.D. Fergusson. The brief for the project was deliberately open - the students were free to respond to any aspect of the exhibition\, and were introduced not only to the life and work of John Duncan Fergusson (1874-1961) but also the wealth of archival material supporting the exhibition\, the Scottish National Gall ery of Modern Art Library and Archive collections (including artists&rsquo\ ; books)\, and the space of the Keiller Library itself.

This col laborative project between the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art Libr ary and Archive and The Glasgow School of Art has sought to open up a dialo gue between the Scottish Colourists and the art students of today. What has resulted is a lively engagement with ideas surrounding the archive and the studio\, and a deconstruction of the artist&rsquo\;s practice in the earli er part of the 20th century.

According to anecdotal evidence\, F ergusson was in the habit of coating his fruit in paint before starting on a still-life painting. Much of the work on display seeks to peel back that coat of paint and cut into the fruit beneath &ndash\; looking anew at Fergu sson&rsquo\;s work\, life and influences.

Fergusson exhibition and the Keiller Librar y and Archive UID:332993 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

The strict codes of the fashion and consumer world and their communication through images are central themes of the two exhibitions by Tobias Kaspar (*1984 in Basel\, lives in Rome) and Carter Mull (*1977 in At lanta\, lives in Los Angeles). At Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen the artists exam ine constructions of identity from different positions. Their images\, film s and installations enter a dialogue both spatially and in terms of content . With rearranged symbols from fashion and pop culture they reveal social m echanisms and create their own pictorial worlds. The juxtaposition of their different strategies shows that in a reality flooded with images and goods the dividing lines between art and consumption and individuality and commu nity are permeable.

\n

Tobias Kaspar demonstrates the interaction between encoding and decoding with the film Chapeau Sydney En Herbe Marine et Ruban Straw Ribbon on Straw Hat\, the centrepiece of his show «\;The Air on the Way to the Oyster»\;. The new film\ , produced by the Kunst Halle\, is the second part of a trilogy and shows i mpressions from a luxury clothes shop in Rome. Voyeuristic camera angles an d slow sequences capture the brand articles at an interface: the clothes an d accessories are still free from the personal charge of their wearers\, al though the label influences the significance. In addition\, the cool aesthe tics of the close-ups of his own pictures create poetry in consumption devo id of meaning. Kaspar makes it clear that the presentation and representati on of clothes and architecture lie close together. The artist is also inter vening at the Kunst Halle with an installation: a carpet becomes a stylized catwalk which connects the spaces and serves as an abstracted plinth for t he presentation of photographic works. \;

\n

In contrast to Kaspar &rsquo\;s sober aesthetics\, in «\;The Princess is Caged in the ©\ ;»\; Carter Mull confronts visitors with a dense inst allation made up of paintings\, light sculptures hanging from the ceiling\, a video and thousands of loose sheets of paper which inundate the floor. G audy colours\, logos\, typography and screenshots from online shops for hip sters characterise the detailed pictorial material. With this Mull question s the status and production of goods and consequently art. In the process v arious social systems and forms of expression and dissemination conflate - analogously to the networked postmodern world. Mull&rsquo\;s main interest is the relationship of the individual to community. In particular he focuse s on the way in which identities are constructed with brands and other cult ural symbols. The American artist creates picture puzzles which enable new relations between highbrow and pop culture and give an insight into his per ception of the convoluted world. \;

\n

Kasper and Mull unfold a ma ny-layered encounter with subcultures and pictorial realities with almost d iametrically opposed artistic languages and strategies which enter into a p romising dialogue at the Kunst Halle.

\n

P.S. From 17 to 22 June Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen is a special guest at the LISTE Art Fair in Basel\, whe re it is showing an offshoot of the two exhibitions.

This first European retrospective presents more than 30 year s of Lorna Simpson's work across the mediums of photography\, film\, video\ , and drawing. Born in Brooklyn\, New York\, Simpson became well-known in t he mid-1980s for her conceptually rigorous and language driven large-scale works combining photographs and text. \;

\n

Although the texts add significance to the images\, the connection between both is open and the n arrative allusive and coded\, rather than direct or documentary\, her criti cal strategy nevertheless leaves room for the spectator's imagination. In t hese photographs\, Simpson employs the figure of the African-American woman to challenge conventional views of gender\, identity\, culture\, history\, and memory\, and examines the ways in which these shape interactions\, rel ationships and experiences. \;

\n

In the mid-1990s\, she began cre ating large multi-panel photographs printed on felt\, mostly accompanied by text panels indicating different locations and intimate encounters. In the last fifteen years\, she has turned to film and video works in which indiv iduals engage in enigmatic conversations that seem to address the mysteries of both identity and desire. The exhibition also gathers a large group of watercolors Simpson has created since 2005. In her most recent works she in volves an archive of photographs from the 1950s\, which she has been adding to by creating her own replicas of these images\, posing herself to mimic the originals.

Since the dawn of human consciousness\, our species has been staring in wonder at the cosmos. Early civilizations performed naked-eye o bservations of the night sky\, the development of the telescope in the earl y 17th Century allowed astronomers like Galileo to learn in increasing deta il what wonderful objects the heavens contained. With the creation of photo graphy in the 1830s\, astronomers were able to make permanent records of th eir observations\, preserve them over time and share them among their peers .

From 10 April WestLicht ventures a glance into the vastness o f space. In 150 rare and spectacular photographs\, the Museum presents a wa lk through the history of space photography: from 19th century black and wh ite pictures of comets moving overhead to the first photograph of Earth in front of the dark background of the universe to the colourful images modern high performance telescopes deliver from the depths of our galaxy.

McClain Gallery \;is pleased to announce Karin Broker's fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. The show\, entitled "damn girls" pre sents a selection of new drawings and monoprints as well as hand-etched ste el furniture. This exhibition presents the best of the artist's characteris tic style\, and reveals her growing interest in women's history as well as her steadfast commitment to drawing. An opening reception with the artist i s scheduled for April 24\, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

\n

Using conté\; on formica panels\, Broker depicts\, large-scale bouquets of lush\, overrip e blooms and singular flowers in the manner of early Dutch masters. \; Here\, the artist's descriptive skill is highlighted through the realistic quality of the flora and rich tonal values\, while the incorporation of tex t\, new to her work\, forges connections with poetry and the lyricism of sc ript\, but also provides a nebulous armature to support the central core of each drawing. \; The subject matter of the text was obsessively compil ed by the artist through researching the names of women and and significant events that span centuries. In re-transcribing factual accounts\, Broker q uestions established hierarchies within popular history\, and offers a uniq ue perspective that pays homage to these women.  \;

\n

The severit y of presenting these histories creates a stark contrast to the more romant ic elements of her drawings. The transcription of these names and various d etails has been compiled into a limited-edition small leather-bound book wi th seven chapters\, each with a forward penned by the artist that directly relates to each drawing.

\n

These drawings are shown amongst a domest ic-scaled set of steel tables\, chairs\, and benches. \; There is a spa rseness and austere quality to Broker's installations\, fabricated in steel and in a Shaker aesthetic that connects them to the cold hard facts inscri bed onto their surfaces. \;Also included in the exhibition are six mono prints with collaged elements that bring together her distinct romantic sty le with her mastery in printmaking. \;Continuing in the tradition of he r work\, throughout damn girls Karin weaves themes of femininity\, beauty\, and optimism with severity\, gender stereotypes\, tragedy\, and loss.  \;

\n

Karin Broker is the subject of a solo museum exhibition opening in May entitled: \;"Karin Broker: wired\, drawn\, and nailed" at the Ar t Museum of Southeast Texas in Beaumont. It will run from May 24 - August 3 1 with an opening reception on Friday\, May 30.
