The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564), a towering genius in the history of Western art, is the subject of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. During his long life, Michelangelo was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. For his mastery of drawing, design, sculpture, painting, and architecture, he was called Il Divino ("the divine one") by his contemporaries. His powerful imagery and dazzling technical virtuosity transported viewers and imbued all of his works with a staggering force that continues to enthrall us today.
This exhibition presents a stunning range and number of works by the artist: 133 of his drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, as well as a substantial body of complementary works by other artists for comparison and context. Among the extraordinary international loans are the complete series of masterpiece drawings he created for his friend Tommaso de' Cavalieri and a monumental cartoon for his last fresco in the Vatican Palace. Selected from 50 public and private collections in the United States and Europe, the exhibition examines Michelangelo's rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer. read more »

Halbdunkel - Florian Fausch, Ulla Reiter and Dominik Schmitt
janinebeangallery Berlin

Influenced by cartoon characters and the world of consumption, Ulla Reiter creates impressing mystic sculptures with an abundance of avant-garde and joy of invention using the unconventional material of plastic foam. The artist shapes this material deliberately using a classic scupltural technique: The figures are carved with weaver‘s scissors and dissecting instruments directly from the block. Ulla Reiter lives and works in Bamberg, Bavaria.
The paintings of the Swiss artist Florian Fausch are utopian architectural landscapes with a formal language which follows its own laws. These are places as well as „non-places“ at once, circling the concept of the painting. Landscape and interior space are being unfolded and splintered, interlock with each other again and form something entirely new. Dominik Schmitt comes from the deep south of Germany, from a town called Neustadt an der Weinstrasse. His artworks comprise paintings and drawings, but also video art. He manifests his anatomical introspections in a both morbid and ironic way on canvas and thereby addresses subjectivity as well as questions about art and its conception. Despite all modernity Schmitt makes formal use of elements of the Renaissance and christian iconography. read more »

Flavio Pellegrini - Progetto Nero espessivo
Milano Scultura - Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan

Flavio Pellegrini was born in Brescia italy in 1960. His technical training does not hinder but stimulates his artistic career. Since 1999, he has followed a mixed path made of technicalities and harmonies, studies and experiments. The wood is the predominant element in all his works. The study of the eighteenth century mathematical methodologies enriches his way of interpreting the stretch. Grooves and etchings patiently researched and regulated by algorithms alternate balancing the form and expressing themselves with the reflection of light. His own recipes harmonize the visual and tactile perceptions of the user. He works, studies and researches in Flero Brescia Italy.

Nato a Brescia nel 1960. Ha una formazione tecnica, ma questo non limita la sua estrosa e florida fantasia. Dal 1999 ha seguito un percorso misto fatto di tecnicismi e armonie, di studi e sperimentazioni. Predilige il legno come elemento modellabile e lo caratterizza con giochi geometrici. Sostituisce il tratto generato dal pensiero con incisioni regolamentate da algoritmi matematici. Ricerca costantemente formule matematiche ispirate a metodologie studiate da matematici del XVIII secolo. Modella le grafie generate per dare profondità alla scultura. E' il modo per sintonizzare la percezione visiva e tattile dell'osservatore con le sue sensazioni del creare e del fare. Lavora, studia, ricerca e sperimenta a Flero (Brescia) read more »

Ivana Mer
presents her new video of the song "Mereus" remixed by Poncho+Casino Tart [Japan]

As a result of the exchange between Slovakian singer and songwriter Ivana Mer and Japanese producer Ugh Yoing (member of Poncho+Casino Tart), appears this powerful remix of "Mereus". The original song is the first single from "Early Works" [2016, Slnko Records], the debut of Ivana. In "About Early Works" she says that "the lyrics and the music came together in one moment in Prague, in 2008 I think, when I recorded it alone with the computer. It speaks about the mythological creature, which is Mereus, the king of the seas. He is calling you by sirens so that you can see your soul in his mirror. All of a sudden the lyrics appeared and I did not really understand their meaning. And then gradually, through this mythological story, I realized that it was about the deeper inward immersion." About his work, Ugh tells "we added an accompaniment of images that were suitable for the voices and that were different from the original song. I started adding a chord progression, a base, different from the original. Then I added a beat that fits good, the melody and then appears other. All the work was done in one week. We released a new double album through Nunulaxnulan, Japanese label, containing recent works, collaborations and remixes. Mereus is included, we like it a lot."
Filmed in 10 cities of 6 countries (Banská Bystrica, Bátovce, Banská Štiavnica, Bratislava and Zvolen [Slovakia], Venice [Italy], Ibiza [Spain], Prague [Czech Republic] ), the clip was produced and edited by Cristian Estrella. His work was focused on "connecting with water in all its forms and states, seas, rivers, fish ponds, snow ... most of the shots were made with a mobile phone and the macro lens. Amazing shapes appeared. We are made of water. More than half of our body belongs to it. Ivana's martial attitude adds an amusing and dynamic component." The remix is part of "Early Works REMIXED vol.1" along with works of djs and producers from Argentina, Uruguay, Greece, and Australia. The track will be also included in the second volume that will be released in the physical format during the following months. Musicians from Mexico, Slovakia, Argentina, Uruguay, and Hungary already confirmed their participation. read more »

BeDifferent Art Show

“What can you teach? Not art. That’s impossible. Contrary to the common view, art can’t be taught. I believe that a piece of art comes out naturally  from a human being. Just like a human being comes out from another“. Kazuo Ohno, “What can you teach? Not art.”
11HellHeaven firmly believes that art is a natural process like life itself, and that has to be shared for the growth of the whole mankind. 11HellHeaven is a cultural symposium, an experimental circle of arts and ideas with a strong focus on innovation and contemporaneity. beyond the limit of “average”. With respect to our artists we act as a nomadic Gallery, opening to unconventional locations and pooling knowledge and experience.
Our logo is two arrows moving upwards and downwards, to represent the continuous shifting between opposite poles. Our motto is: “In Media non stat virtus”, whose translation from latin is: “there is no virtue in the middle”. Mediocrity is not a value. At the same time, “there is no truth in the media” and that is why we deliberately misspelled the latin motto (middle = media). For us, art represents the last bulwark against the flattening of consciousness in the media society.
Informal, conceptual, performing arts and videoart are 11Hellheaven’s core. We produce visions, performances and ideas. Everyone is welcomed to share his/her art and vision. It’s our contribution to increase the global level of awareness of the planet. read more »

Adam Roose "Egocentric"
Dir J A Williams

Adam "BixbyKnolls" Roose, A Bixby Knolls (Uptown Long Beach) California Native born May 3rd 1987, hence the alias "Mr. May 3hird", is a melodic threat to those who underestimate him. His music consists of a pure original and versatile sound allowing Adam to create a refreshing twist to current Hip Hop. Influenced by the likes of artists as timeless as The Isley Brothers to current artists like The Weeknd, he creates a sound that allows the audience to bite their tongues before proclaiming the absence of originality in Long Beach. He also provides the rare combination of skills that would make any A & R think twice.
When he's not displaying his flow, he's probably producing or composing the very music he's writing to, not to mention working with the melodic gift of serenity he also possesses. When singing he delivers a very soulful and warming tone that can bend and fit virtually any style of music. "Consider my music the postcard for Long Beach, CA". Adam Roose refers to his music as the representation that is never displayed through music in his hometown. "I feel the options available for music being represented by Long Beach is good and I support all of them, but my sound is long beyond what people actually have to offer and doesn't need to be hidden or free any longer. People pay for music of this quality." A confident and proud individual is the self-proclaimed "Dean" and CEO/Founder of the illustrious "University". Open your minds and ears to what the "University" and Adam Roose have to offer.

Canaletto & the Art of Venice
Seventh Art Productions

A new film shot in ultra HD 4K, based on the much anticipated exhibition at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace
In cinemas nationwide from 26th September 2017
Directed by David Bickerstaff
Co-written by David Bickerstaff and Phil Grabsky
EXHIBITION ON SCREEN open its fifth season with Canaletto & the Art of Venice, an immersive journey into the life and art of Venice’s famous view-painter.
No artist better captures the essence and allure of Venice than Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as Canaletto. Despite Canaletto’s close relationship with the city in which he lived and died, the world’s largest collection of his works resides not in his native Italy, but in Britain as part of the Royal Collection. In 1762, George III purchased almost the entire collection amassed by Joseph Smith,British Consul in Venice and Canaletto’s principal agent.
EXHIBITION ON SCREEN’s latest release will grant unique access to the Royal Collection’s exceptional holdings of Canaletto's work, much of which is on display as part of the exhibition Canaletto & the Art of Venice at The Queen’s Gallery (19 May - 12 November).
The remarkable group of over 200 paintings, drawings and prints on display offer unparalleled insight into the artistry ofCanaletto and his contemporaries, and the city he became a master at capturing. The film also offers the chance to step inside two official royal residences - Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle - to learn more about the artist, and Joseph Smith, the man who introduced Canaletto to Britain.
From London, Canaletto & the Art of Venice will travel to the great Italian city to explore the origins of Canaletto’s art. Whilst appearing to be faithful representations of the city, Canaletto's skill came from his manipulation of reality. He moved buildings around or opened up vistas to create the perfectcomposition, and his paintings of Venice were highly sought after by Grand Tourists. His playful imagination extended into a new genre in which he excelled. The 'capriccio' combined real and fantasy architecture into imagined views. In this sense, Canaletto is more than a topographical artist - he is a master storyteller.
Cinema-goers will embark on their very own 21st century Grand Tour, visiting the sites enjoyed by their 18th century counterparts and immortalised in Canaletto’s views - from the Rialto Bridge to the Piazza San Marco, and the Palazzo Ducale to the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. Guided by RoyalCollection Trust curators and the world’s leading experts in Venetian history, the film is not only a wonderful way to see the exhibition, but an opportunity to get closer to Canaletto and the city that inspired him.

ABOUT EXHIBITION ON SCREEN
Working with top international museums and galleries, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN create films which offer a cinematic immersion into the world’s best loved art, accompanied by insights from the world's leading historians and arts critics. Since launching in 2011, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN have released 16 films which have been shown in over 50 countries worldwide.
