Cyril Massimelli&lsquo\;s lounges are a show space and a sym bol of the modern and urban life. Cyril Massimelli has been dealing with th is topic for quite some time. With his great knowledge of modern architectu re and contemporary design\, he carries out the passive enjoyment of life i n different\, detailed crafted settings.
Bars\, private rooms\, garde ns and ticket halls become perfectly staged scenes where mostly young peopl e gather together in a relaxed atmosphere. However\, the protagonists alway s remain somewhat idealistic\, artificial and self-absorbed. They seem to b e almost like developed ornaments that the painter puts right next to the r ugs\, designer furniture and lamps only for the sake of the stage. At the s ame time the staged lounges are very alluring despite or maybe because of t he artificiality. The viewer is fascinated by the stylish and cool world an d wants to become a part of it.
The tailoring of the history of pain ting is clearly noticeable in Cyril Massimelli&lsquo\;s work. References to famous painter such as Caravaggio\, Tizian\, Manet and Hopper can be found in his works.
Cyril Massimelli has been living in Dresden since 2005 . The Paris-born studied photography and painting at the É\;cole nati onale supé\;rieure des Arts Dé\;coratifs de Paris. In the begin ning he worked as a freelance architectural photographer\, and since 2001 h e&lsquo\;s been devoting himself to painting.

On the occasion of th e exhibition the catalogue "Lounges" will be published at Seemann- Henschel Publishing.

&bdquo\;CATS AND DOGS&ldquo\;- WILL KURTZ

\n

The life-size sculptures by Will Kurtz which crowd the gallery room are the por traits of his New York environment. His sculptures range from his family me mbers and his dog Artie\, to people who he randomly met on the street. It&l squo\;s a cheeky look\, he does not glamorize and does not go easy on his m odels. No &bdquo\;spare tire&ldquo\;\, poorly fitting clothes or unfavorabl e pose are left out. It is much more about presenting people with their inp erfect peculiar humanity.
He did not begin his creation with human fi gures\, but with an animal\, his own pet to be exact. The reason for this i s quite obvious\, the animals are also a part of his environment. The anima ls reflect the unprejudiced and unbiased life - they play\, sniff around\, sleep and unimpededly go after their own needs. They also allow almost anyo ne access. Through his work\, Will Kurtz wants to open boundaries and inclu de broader base of people in the art world\, regardless of financial backgr ound\, social status\, race\, age or skin color.
Encountering his nex t model on the street\, he takes a picture unnoticed\, in order to capture the typical movement. Finally\, he forms a sort of a skeleton out of differ net materials\, which he gradually covers with colorful newspaper as if cre ating new skin layers\, and coats them until he created a complete naked bo dy. Afterwards\, he forms it with more newspaper layers\, clothes and compl iments it with accessories such as wigs\, hats\, canes or a dog leash. On t he one hand\, he uses newspaper pieces very pictorially\, he uses it as his starting base in order to put different color shades into interaction. On the other\, the word-and picture elements serve as a critique commentary on the media and society. Will Kurtz started to be a professional artist at t he age of 50. After long successful years as a landscape architect and work ing with art in his spare time\, he decided to enroll at the New York Acade my of Art in 2007 and focus on art completely. The exhibition &bdquo\;Anima ted Lounges&ldquo\; will be the first European exhibition of the successful \, American artist.

Since 1993\, the Johnson Museum has collaborated with Cornel l&rsquo\;s Department of the History of Art to provide opportunities for in terested undergraduates to gain direct museum experience by organizing an e xhibition. This year\, enticing the eye / exploring the frame expl ores how art is a simultaneous reflection of the artist and the viewer. Thr ough this lens\, the exhibition examines framing through abstraction\, iden tity\, and the medium itself in works from a wide range of periods and medi a in order to broaden understanding of the complex effect of framing on the viewer&rsquo\;s experience. The exhibition aims to convince the viewer tha t no aspect of a work of art is accidental. The focus of a photograph\, the interaction between two lines on a canvas\, each deep incision in a piece of marble&mdash\;all demonstrate something unique\, both about the work of art and the artist&rsquo\;s message.

\n

The way subject and message ar e presented through a frame leads to a deeper understanding of the work its elf. We look at a straightforward way of framing\, through physical frames of architecture or the surroundings. We move to less tangible manipulations of the frame through abstraction and negative space. Some artists whose wo rks have been chosen for enticing the eye / exploring the frame ha ve structured their frame in a way that asks more of the viewer and does no t always offer immediate gratification. The \;History of Art Majors&rsq uo\; Society \;urges visitors to be active viewers\, constantl y asking the question of how a piece of art is &ldquo\;framed&rdquo\;&mdash \;both literally and within a larger context. \;

\n

In addition to the exhibition\, the Society has expanded its social media presence in eff orts to engage with audiences on a new level. Through weekly \;blog&nbs p\;posts and an active \;Instagram\, we have engaged the larger Cornell community\, as well as art lovers and museums internationally\, in our cur atorial explorations. This has also helped our team to see what we are doin g through a different lens. We are hopeful that these activities will not o nly stir excitement for the show but also help interested viewers to unders tand our process and engage with enticing the eye / exploring the frame from start to finish. We hope to forge connections with visitors who will respond to a work with an intense feeling&mdash\;when this happens\, y ou have shared a connection with the artist in a unique and personal way. Y ou&rsquo\;ve shared a mind-set. You&rsquo\;ve shared a frame.

< br />My work evolves due to internal as well as exter nal influences. I find as my years advance that certain experiences\, image s from my past lie dormant within me and occassionally rise to my conscious ness and nurture me as food for creative thought. Recent work is more sculp tural in essence. Though predominantly making work in the wood fire genre\, I am eager to experiment with mixed media as well as a wider spectrum of c eramic surfaces including but not exclusive to wood firing. I choose not to be limited to a small corner of space that &lsquo\;defines&rsquo\; who I a m and what I make.

(&hellip\;) But then\, when I failed to cut my ties with mat eriality and restricted time\, I sadly understood: Any type of government b ased on the rule of human beings by human beings is bound to end in injusti ce\, unfairness and oppression. So it is necessary to bravely propose that the basis for life should be a type of order with no state\, with no law\, an order in which every human being lives independently and autonomously. H owever\, I must also add that I accept the fact that reality\, absolute tru th\, is unknowable. Unfortunately\, the creature known as the human being i s not equipped with the formation required to acquire absolute knowledge. I t is perhaps necessary to carry out the struggle not outside (extra) but in side (intra).

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.
