LaChapelle: Good News for Modern Man, Groninger Museum

Verwacht spectaculaire portretten – van Andy Warhol tot Miley Cyrus – maar ook sterke composities, sprekende kleuren en wonderschoon naakt in de tentoonstelling ‘LaChapelle: Good News for Modern Man’. Voor het eerst toont de wereldberoemde fotograaf David LaChapelle zijn werk in Nederland en dat met maar liefst ruim 70 werken. Het Groninger Museum laat de diversiteit van LaChapelle zien, door in elke ruimte een andere periode uit zijn carrière uit te lichten. LaChapelle’s foto’s vertellen verhalen, die hij op een unieke manier creëert. Zo is bijvoorbeeld alles wat je op de foto’s ziet door de kunstenaar in scene gezet; er komt geen Photoshop aan te pas. En wist je dat LaChapelle de negatieven van zijn foto’s met de hand bewerkt? Als je goed kijkt, kan je hier en daar zelfs zijn vingerafdrukken zien zitten!

De tentoonstelling ‘LaChapelle: Good News for Modern Man’ is te zien t/m 28 oktober 2018 in het Groninger Museum.

10 Selfies That Went Awry

Some observers of society say we live in a narcissistic age in which, more and more, many of us act as though we’re the center of the universe. Judging by the selfie phenomenon, it’s hard to argue against such pundits’ claims.

While selfies are a way of getting the 15 minutes of fame that Andy Warhol claimed would be everyone’s due before long, the pictures we take with our cell phone cameras can reveal more than mere vanity. As these ten selfies that went awry demonstrate, the photos we take of ourselves on the spur of the moment can capture embarrassing behavior, carelessness, criminality, and downright foolishness.

Takashi Murakami, Japan’s Andy Warhol

Most artists struggle to break into mainstream culture. Takashi Murakami is not one of them. His work has been featured on Louis Vuitton bags, in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and on the cover of a Kanye West album, and are prime examples of Superflat – a modern art movement pioneered by Murakami that merges pop art and anime with fine art techniques. Serena Altschul talked with Murakami at an exhibition at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, that pairs Murakami’s creations with traditional Japanese art.

Sir Peter Blake on John Minton

Sir Peter Blake revisits his memories of British artist John Minton, his tutor at the Royal College of Art in 1953, reflecting on his influence on his own practice.

The exhibition ‘John Minton: A Centenary’ runs at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, from 1 July – 1 October 2017.

This major exhibition marks the centenary of the birth of John Minton, a bohemian figure in London during the 1940s and 50s who counted Michael Ayrton, Lucian Freud and Keith Vaughan amongst his friends. The exhibition explores the artist’s achievements far beyond his reputation as a leading post-war illustrator and influential tutor.

Curated by Simon Martin, Director of Pallant House Gallery, and Frances Spalding, art historian and biographer of Minton.

Andy Warhol

I was at an exhibition today and decided to take a couple of videos.

Andy Warhol (August 6, 1928 — February 22, 1987) was an American artist who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertisement that flourished by the 1960s. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became a renowned and sometimes controversial artist. The Andy Warhol Museum in his native city, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, holds an extensive permanent collection of art and archives. It is the largest museum in the United States dedicated to a single artist.

Warhol’s art encompassed many forms of media, including hand drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculpture, film, and music.

He was also a pioneer in computer-generated art using Amiga computers that were introduced in 1984, two years before his death. He founded Interview Magazine and was the author of numerous books, including The Philosophy of Andy Warhol and Popism: The Warhol Sixties. He is also notable as a gay man who lived openly as such before the gay liberation movement. His studio, The Factory, was a famous gathering place that brought together distinguished intellectuals, drag queens, playwrights, Bohemian street people, Hollywood celebrities, and wealthy patrons.

Warhol has been the subject of numerous retrospective exhibitions, books, and feature and documentary films. He coined the widely used expression “15 minutes of fame”. Many of his creations are very collectible and highly valuable. The highest price ever paid for a Warhol painting is US$100 million for a 1963 canvas titled Eight Elvises. The private transaction was reported in a 2009 article in The Economist, which described Warhol as the “bellwether of the art market”. Warhol’s works include some of the most expensive paintings ever sold.

Andy Warhol (Août 6, 1928 – Février 22, 1987) était un artiste américain qui fut une figure de proue du mouvement d’art visuel connu comme le pop art. Ses œuvres explorent la relation entre l’expression artistique, culture de la célébrité et de la publicité qui a fleuri dans les années 1960. Après une brillante carrière en tant qu’illustrateur commercial, Warhol est devenu un artiste renommé et parfois controversées. Le musée Andy Warhol dans sa ville natale, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvanie, possède une vaste collection permanente d’art et des archives. Il est le plus grand musée aux Etats-Unis dédié à un seul artiste.

L’art de Warhol comprenait de nombreuses formes de médias, y compris le dessin à la main, peinture, gravure, photographie, sérigraphie, sculpture, cinéma, et la musique.

Il a également été un pionnier dans l’art généré par ordinateur en utilisant les ordinateurs Amiga qui ont été introduites en 1984, deux ans avant sa mort. Il a fondé Interview Magazine et est l’auteur de nombreux ouvrages, dont The Philosophy of Andy Warhol et Popism: The Sixties Warhol. Il est également remarquable que un homme gai qui a vécu ouvertement en tant que telle avant que le mouvement de libération gay. Son studio, The Factory, était un lieu de rassemblement célèbre qui a réuni des intellectuels distingués, drag queens, des dramaturges, Bohême gens de la rue, des célébrités de Hollywood, et de riches mécènes.

Warhol a fait l’objet de nombreuses expositions rétrospectives, livres et films et documentaires. Il a inventé l’expression largement utilisée «15 minutes de gloire”. Beaucoup de ses créations sont très à collectionner et de grande valeur. Le prix le plus élevé jamais payé pour un tableau de Warhol est de US $ 100 millions pour une toile intitulée Huit Elvises 1963. La transaction privée a été rapporté dans un article de 2009 dans The Economist, qui décrit Warhol comme le «baromètre de marché de l’art”. Des œuvres de Warhol sont quelques-unes des peintures les plus chères jamais vendues.
