Apparently, Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate Modern, was not prepared to let the name of Donald Judd (1928-1994) silently fade from our memories - did he not do his utmost to make the man famous in the first place? Ten years after his death - sixteen years after the last substantial exhibition - he presents a big retrospective of the work of the artist who has 'changed the course of modern sculpture''. The exhibition travels to Düsseldorf (19/06 to 05/09/04) and Basel (02/10 to 09/01/05). Heavy artillery ... read more »
Digital art is an extraordinarily exciting new medium that closely resembles the digital revolution in music and the way music is created, recorded and archived-so much so in fact that I could not resist applying some of the techniques that I use in composing electronic music to my digital paintings. Instant gratification is nice, and I experienced much of it at first, but as anyone will tell you who has used professional graphics programs like Illustrator or Photoshop and tried to create faithful and ... read more »

Dressed and undressed, curvaceous and angular, sleeping and watching. Over seven decades the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso depicts the female body as a colourful metamorphosis – full of longing and willpower, desire and eroticism. The exhibition Beloved by Picasso – The Power of the Model looks at the relations between one of the greatest painters in world history and his models, and reinterprets Picasso’s depictions of women. The famous artist’s portraits of women raise issues that are highly topical today as more and more people are discussing gender, privileges and identity in the context of equality and feminism. ARKEN’s Picasso exhibition focuses on the women in the portraits, their significance for Picasso’s wild changes of style and the comedy of his dramatic stagings.
Erotic thirst and burning desire
Pablo Picasso is famous for his talent for artistic innovation and notorious for his uncompromising life. Picasso’s artistic development and new stylistic departures parallel his love life – and it does not go quietly. In groundbreaking and expressive paintings Picasso interprets his family life, children, fame, artistic identity, love and crises. To one motif in particular he returns again and again: the naked female body, alone or in interaction with the artist. With a starting point in one of the most iconic motifs in the history of art – the painter and the model – Picasso depicts the desire to see and be seen. He shows our erotic thirst and eternal fascination with one another’s bodies as well as the lustful insistent looks that arise in the interaction between the parties.
More than muses
Beloved by Picasso – The Power of the Model challenges the balance of power between the artist and his models and takes a fresh look at Picasso’s pictures of those he loved. Picasso renders the women’s strengths, emotional life, pleasure and anger with great empathy, and stages his own role as artist with self-irony and humour. For the first time ARKEN’s exhibition tells the stories of Olga Khokhlova, Marie-Thérèse Walter, Dora Maar, Françoise Gilot and Jacqueline Roque as more than Picasso’s muses and preferred subjects.
Masterpieces from Paris
ARKEN’s Picasso exhibition presents numerous masterpieces from the unique collection of the Musée national Picasso-Paris. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints as well as historical film clips, photos, poems and a photo album. A magnificent Picasso experience awaits the visitor in the autumn, when Beloved by Picasso – The Power of the Model takes over ARKEN’s galleries from 12 October.
New Picasso research
For the exhibition a richly illustrated catalogue will be published presenting new research on Picasso by Danish and international contributors. ARKEN’s Curator Naja Rasmussen’s peer-reviewed article explores the women’s partnerships with Picasso, his stylistic developments and the gaze applied to them and himself. Émilie Bouvard, former curator at Musée national Picasso-Paris where she was in charge of paintings (1938-72), research and contemporary art, and recently appointed director of collections at Foundation Giacometti, examines Jacqueline Roque’s significance for Picasso’s late art. Wendy Steiner, author and professor emerita at Pennsylvania University, addresses current viewer positions and the Picasso model as an idea. Writer, scholar and curator Harri Kalha analyses Picasso’s erotic and humorous (self-)staging and his eye for body and gender. read more »

Over the years, there have been many attempts in pursuit of creating a perfect man-made diamond. It wasn’t until the mid-1950s, when scientists created colored and colorless gems, according to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Because of British writer, H.G. Wells, scientists have been able to read about the technique of high pressure and temperature (HPHT) to continue research. Like art, scientists have been able to“master the illusion” of what we see as a traditional diamond by making a series of synthetic ones.
The process of creating synthetic gems, led to understanding the inner happenings of the diamond industry. In the late 1900s the diamond industry was under pressure when synthetic gems tried to enter the market. During the same time, more awareness was raised about blood diamonds on the market. Before 2003, 25% of the world’s diamonds were conflict. They were traded illegally, which in turn impacts profits, working environments and human rights. Around the world, innocent people were often exploited to collect conflict diamonds. With the HPHT method, scientists strived to recreate high quality, bright, timeless and valuable pieces of jewelry.
Creating The Right Diamond
Synthetic gems have become an alternative option to buyers. In fact, synthetic-diamond engagement rings are the most popular piece of jewelry in that field. As the lab-grown industry increases by 15% per year, the market has an ability to change in the years ahead. Creating a diamond is like perfecting a piece of artwork. Artists like Alexander Chubar emphasized we’ve come a long way with creativity and architecture. He observes that, “Art is the physical manifestation of the perceptions of the world as interpreted and organized by various groups of people.” The creation of the new diamond is like a combination of artistic lens and science, although they are distinctly different. Each stone has the same physical and chemical properties, but can still vary in size, shape and color.
The Difference Between Synthetic and Natural Diamonds
Diamonds grown in labs are identical to their mined counterparts except for one minor flaw; synthetic gems do not have impurities. Under “controlled conditions,” scientists are able to remove cracks, unnatural coloring and cloudiness, but buyers will often not be able to spot the difference from a regular diamond or an artificial one, except for its price. Synthetic diamonds are available at a more affordable rate than mined diamonds. They have been crafted to be environmentally friendly, ethical and without flaw. The creation of synthetic gems has significantly changed the diamond industry. Diamond labs are at the forefront of innovation with new geometric styles and colors; and though it will take time for the industry to accept synthetic gems, it leaves scientists time to design timeless pieces of artistic jewelry.

“La Foresta dei Violini”: Piuarch's tribute to the lost forest From the 8th to the 19th April 2019 at University of Milan, an evocative installation showcases the relation between nature and music, the spruces and the arts which from that wood give life to emotional instruments
University of Milan, Interni Human Spaces - During Milan Design Week 2019, Piuarch presents “La Foresta dei Violini”: an installation sponsored by CityLife, which aims at representing the value of the spruces wood of Fiemme Valley (Trentino Alto Adige, Italy). On the 29th October 2018 a storm and a 200-km/h-wind ravaged a centuries-old natural balance, hitting more than 12 million trees on the Alps. Among these there is Paneveggio Forest, also known as Stradivari's Forest. A place renowned for the spruces growing there: their wood has extraordinary features, and it has been forever used to make the best acoustic violin sound cases, which master luthier Stradivari chose for his masterpieces. Based on a concept by Nemo Monti, Piuarch designed an evocative installation which will stand out in the Main Courtyard of the University of Milan within the INTERNI HUMAN SPACES event. The project is sponsored by CityLife, with the support of the Province of Trento and the Magnifica Comunità di Fiemme (Magnificent Community of Fiemme) as technical sponsors providing the wood used to build the installation.
CONCEPT “La foresta dei violini” is an evocative sign of the lost forest, and its absence. A tribute to the territory, to the forests, to the nature; to the communities that create their crafts thank to that natural environment, as well as to the wood supply chain born on those territories; to the arts that create those wooden instruments and to the artists that those instruments play to give back emotional music. Made of rough wood, using broken trees eradicated by the wind, “La Foresta dei Violini” represents a place of memories, witness of the violated nature, where architecture is both support and relief.
THE INSTALLATION Two large spruce trunks emerge from the loggia of Main Courtyard of the University of Milan: the roots suspended in the void overlook a balustrade on the courtyard, supported by an architectural easel made of worked red spruce wood. Disrupted trees, segments of memory, evidence of the infringed nature. Roots in the wind. Architecture remains in between. The easel is an elementary support, the essential structure, which follows the work in all its stages. The artifact is a bridge between things and ideas: a geometric shape that lies in the wood carving, in the intersection of straight forms, it is the sum of singularities. It bears the weight, connects different borders, has many names and functions in the human jargon. For these reasons it is the simplest, most common and universal symbol of the ancestral relationship between technique and nature, between raw material and transformation. Made of worked red spruce, it is the archetype of the craftsman work who repairs. The dimensions are amplified, the roles turned upside down, the priorities acknowledged. Nature comes first. “We want to celebrate the primordial architecture of the forest, respecting its structures and forms of intersection with the planet and its inhabitants. This project evokes the ability of nature to communicate with human beings, inviting them to tactfully observe its rules, taking care of it and following the natural order of the earth.” piuarch.
PANEVEGGIO FOREST, THE ACOUSTIC FOREST Paneveggio Forest is renowned because is where the spruce trees used to make the most elegant and precious instrument, the violin, grow. Spruce trees are almost the 90% of the trees in the forest, associated with silver firs at lower altitudes, larch and Swiss pine to the upper ones, while the undergrowth is made up of a carpet of black and red blueberry. And it is among these thousands of shades of green that master luthier Stradivari got lost looking for the most suitable trees for the making of his violins: the centuries-old red fir trees whose wood, thanks to its particular resonance capacity, provides the ideal raw material for the construction of sounding boards. This wood is characterised by a great elasticity that guarantees to better transmit the sound, and its lymphatic channels are like tiny organ pipes that create resonance. For this reason the trees are felled in the waning moon, between October and November, when in the trunk there is less quantity of sap. The best ones can be recognised for the very thin and perfectly concentric growth rings with straight and fine fibers and few knots. It was in this forest that the greatest violin makers of Cremona reached the perfection of sound and many of the specimens made with the spruce of this forest are still kept today in the Violin Museum of the city.

Born in Cape Town, South Africa, under apartheid, he combines rhythmic influences of South Africa with jazz. After the notorious Sharpeville massacre of 1960, mixed-race bands and audiences were defying the increasingly strict apartheid laws, and jazz symbolized resistance, so the government closed a number of clubs and harassed the musicians and he left the country. None other than Duke Ellington produced an album on him in 1963 and in 1974, he recorded "Mannenberg Is Where It's Happening," an unofficial anthem for black South Africans; he performed at the 1994 presidential inauguration of Nelson Mandela. He has performed at Carnegie Hall and the Newport Jazz Fest, joined the Elvin Jones' quartet for a time, and made an album with Max Roach.

Eugenio Galli nasce nel 1951 a Seregno (MB), dove lavora tuttora, e vive a Briosco (MB). Sin dall’adolescenza coltiva la passione per la pittura.
Terminati gli studi scientifici a Monza lavora per circa vent’anni nella bottega orafa di famiglia specializzandosi in gemmologia.
Dopo aver abbandonato la figurazione, agli inizi degli anni ’90 si sofferma sulla questione della luce approdando ad uno spazio creativo sottolineato da un colorismo fine e sommesso. Iniziano così i suoi cicli astratti, denominati materia e spirito, percezioni universali, iridescenza cromatica, sino ad arrivare alla recente produzione che sfocia in una particolare filosofia alla ricerca dell’universalità spirituale che va sotto il nome di “La trascendenza di Eugenio Galli”.
A questa nuova linea pittorica-scultorea appartengono l’elegia del bianco, le opere multimateriche e le sculture in materiali vari, specie in cor-ten.
Eugenio Galli ha partecipato a numerose personali e collettive in Italia e all’estero tra Roma, Firenze, Milano, Berlino, Lugano, Lione, Budapest, Sharjah (Emirati Arabi) e il Cairo.
Sue opere sono conservate in collezioni pubbliche e private, nazionali ed internazionali.
…ecco allora la Trascendenza cioè l'”andare oltre”… quindi andare oltre la realtà dell’universo fisico, del pensiero e della ragione. Questa mia linea pittorica-scultorea non prende perciò spunto da elementi materiali, da immagini o elaborazioni mentali, ma è l’individuo in quanto essere spirituale che crea scevro da qualsiasi interferenza. È vero per fare ciò deve usare il proprio corpo, gestire i vari attrezzi e materiali ma questo non è pensiero ma unicamente automatismo che deriva dalla tecnica acquisita. Non si deve quindi confondere questa condizione con la casualità in quanto qui abbiamo la consapevolezza dell’essere.

The Italian Studio Vudafieri-Saverino Partners has designed four kindergartens in China, where the immersive and experiential architectural space becomes a stimulus for imagination and learning.
An ever closer relationship links architecture and pedagogy: school spaces play today a decisive role in the education of children, fostering their wellbeing and accompanying their learning process. This is the principle behind the project by Vudafieri-Saverino Partners, architecture studio based in Milan and Shanghai, for Gymboree Play & Music. The American brand – with 700 centres in more than 40 countries around world - offers courses for infants and children up to the age of 6, with the aim of developing their cognitive and relational skills in early childhood, through play activities based on listening to music, art classes, group activities and problem solving games. To translate Gymboree’s educational philosophy into architectural language, the architects have come up with the concept of the four schools - two in Shenzhen and two in Suzhou - designing places capable of arousing children's curiosity and also encouraging them to learn. The spaces are designed to interpret the theme of "travel" through shapes, colours and materials, with different areas recreating different environments: the ocean, the forest, the desert, the Arctic, the canyon and space. A magical, dreamlike context stimulates the children to use their imagination to live unique experiences and visit unknown worlds. Without leaving their classrooms they are able to rest in the shade of a tree in the middle of the forest; immerse themselves underwater with inhabitants of the ocean, run up and down dunes until they reach an oasis in the desert. The protagonists of this adventure are not only the children, but also their parents, who are able to relive the fun of childhood and develop their creative potential along with their children.
The inspiration for the design of the spaces, which stand out for their simple geometries, bold colours and different materials, derives precisely from this identification with the children. "We tried to interpret the environments through the eyes of children, creating a context that provided them with sensations rather than images, so as to leave them free to fly on the wings of their imagination. The imagination of children is pure and original, they see the world with the independence and creativity of their own thoughts. Imagination is more important than knowledge, since knowledge is limited, while imagination is the driving force behind progress and the source of the evolution of knowledge", say architects Tiziano Vudafieri and Claudio Saverino.
The concept finds its brightest expression in the school of Shenzhen Upper Hills, a space of over 2000 square metres, which accommodates the offices of Gymboree employees as well as the classrooms. Here the whole building - and not just the classrooms - is an immersive and highly experiential space. Colours, shapes and geometries become tools for giving life to an imaginative world, which characterises the corridors, transit areas, the reception, the bar, the common areas and the classrooms. The central garden with playground allows children to interact and play in the open air. The offices are located on the upper floor and accommodate the entire Gymboree team in Shenzhen with meeting rooms and training areas, bar and kitchen. The lavish programme of collateral activities - such as gymnastics and cooking classes - is also open to parents, who can enjoy themselves while their children are having fun in class. The Gymboree logo and its iconic orange colour characterise the facades, making the space immediately recognisable from the outside. read more »

LAS VEGAS, NV – (January 28, 2019) - International Market Centers (IMC), owners and operators of World Market Center Las Vegas, broke ground today on construction of The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas, a new 315,000-square-foot exhibition facility, scheduled to open in summer 2020 on the World Market Center Las Vegas campus.
The new Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas will feature 194,785 gross square feet of exhibit space, which is divisible into two halls – North with 97,684 gross square feet and South with 97,101 gross square feet – which can accommodate up to 1,000 booths. The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas will feature an expansive lobby area, registration area, onsite shuttle bus depot, attached parking garage and two permanent “grab and go” food service areas.
“IMC is making a $90 Million investment in the creation of The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas, a new state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility,” said Robert Maricich, CEO of IMC. “We’re delighted to cooperate with the city of Las Vegas and the state of Nevada to bring this new exhibition venue to Las Vegas. Our use of local labor, at ‘prevailing wage rates’ will make this project a win-win for the exhibition industry and the city of Las Vegas.”
Construction is scheduled to begin fully in April and the grand opening is expected for IMC’s Summer 2020 Las Vegas Market, a semi-annual marketplace for the gift and home furnishings industries. “According to the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority (LVCVA) in 2017, the exposition industry generated $58.8 billion in economic benefit to Southern Nevada,” said Mayor Carolyn Goodman. “With the addition of this new facility, Las Vegas now offers the exhibition industry a total of 4,214,047 gross square feet of exhibit hall space at four facilities – the Las Vegas Convention Center, Sands Expo, Mandalay Bay and The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas.”
The Expo at Las Vegas Market will be the new permanent venue for presentation of temporary gift and home décor exhibits at IMC’s semi-annual Las Vegas Market, which showcases 4,000+ gift, home décor and furniture resources in five million square feet of permanent showrooms and temporary exhibition space. During the Las Vegas Market, IMC plans to use the lobby of the Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas for attendee and exhibitor registration, making the new facility the gateway to its entire marketplace. The Expo’s contiguous positioning with Building C also will improve attendee traffic flow between Las Vegas Market’s permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits, which IMC expects will drive new resources to campus and enrich the pipeline for permanent showroom presentations. read more »

Tony Nicotra is an Italian Artist that was born in Caracas Venezuela on 17 August 1971.
I have always exhibited an insatiable curiosity for the world that surrounds me, and have passionately tried to express my inquisitiveness through drawing and painting. As a young man after finishing my Fine Arts studies, (where by my talents were developed and refined), and with increasing recognition of my artistic skills, I was appropriated into the discipline of restorative art where I worked prodigiously for many years. During this period I won critical acclaim amongst my peers, for successfully restoring numerous important and prestigious Italian works of art and monuments including, The Arena of Verona, The Cathedral of Catania, The Royal Palace of Venaria in Turin as well as the Italian Embassy in Berlin, to name but a few.
Yet despite all these accomplishments, and still driven by my insatiable and ardent desire to fathom the truth and raison d’être of the existence of life, of humanity, and its relationship with its delicate environs, I elected to temporarily suspend my career, to commence a long period of introspective soul searching. I devoted myself exclusively to the search of inner wisdom through the pursuit of knowledge, with a view of liberating the soul within. During this endeavour, I became an avid scholar of various metaphysical and spiritual disciplines, and, despite severe financial constraints and hardships, found myself compelled to pursue a personal and arduous pilgrimage, by walking The Route of Santiago di Compostela, better known as the pilgrimage of St James Path, ending in Santiago Spain.
During this journey I became inspired to study the field of Quantum Physics, and coupled with the knowledge previously gained, I finally found the answers to my deepest questions. Renewed by this personal experience, my quest is to now share my new found understanding and wisdom, through the communicative medium of artistic works, literary prose, and poetry. To this end, I have currently devoted my artistic ability, to the pursuit of rendering tangible and visible, the enigmatic invisible energy fields that constitute the universe and life within it. My aim is to awaken in all humanity, the awareness and wonder, of the interrelatedness of all that exists, through the interactive dance of fundamental energy forms that constitute both living and non living things. This knowledge is rarely acknowledged, nor experienced by the uninitiated majority. Thus, my mission as an artist, is to utilize my personal wisdom, my faith and my new found perception of self as a singular, liberated and enlightened being, to demonstrate the existence of life as a divine source of permeating energy, constantly pulsating through dynamic and cyclic interactions. read more »

"Surrealism is not the way you live, act or feel. It's the way you dream. We, who call ourselves 'surrealists', are marked by the Lord himself with a slightest touch of insanity. Creative insanity that is, granting the freedom to transform reality, to reach beyond visible, and to display the possibility of impossible. My personal goal, as a surrealist, is to represent the unreality with maximum reality, trying to make you believe in what you see. This is what Salvador Dali did the best." ... read more »

Art, unlike science, is not measured by its progress. Its evolution reminds one of concentric circles on the surface of water that has been disturbed by a rock. Similarly, arts of cultures and civilizations stand independently, but at the same time they are unified by their common striving for order and harmony; a tendency that can be observed not only in art but in all organic life. Art is the physical manifestation of the sensual perceptions of the world as interpreted and organized by these various groups of peoples. This is why ... read more »
