P O P A R T & P O P M U S I C
Two sides of the same coin
For the first time the link between pop art and pop music will be demonstrate in the museum of arts and history of Bormes les mimosas.
The exhibition evolves around three great “heroes”of the pop culture .
Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali and Michael Jackson had many common points.
They had their own magazines and did the cover for “Time magazine” or Playboy.
These three artists are considered like kings or popes in the field of music and arts, they have their own wax statues in “le musée Grévin”,their own fragrances, stamps and they have also played in TV commercials
The legacy that Michael Jackson, Andy Warhol et Salvador Dali have left behind is outstanding.
The museum will show during the “ Pop art & Pop music” exhibition , a huge amount of photos and pictures , like witnesses of this great heritage
Dali, a reference for Michael Jackson
Everybody knows that Dali is the creator of self-promotion , Thanks to his unusual behavior, he was always in the center of journalists’ attention, and the relations with media were the important part of the artist`s self-branding. These surrealistic happenings have inspired most of the great show business artists.
So, for the first time in France the connection , the similitude and the influence that Dali had upon Jackson will be shown.
Both geniuses have suffered from the same kind of curse , the feeling of being the substitute of their born dead older brother . Effectively , after the death of a previous child , Dali’s and Jackson’s parents have decided to make another one immediately , a heavy burden to carry for the young Salvador and Michael.
Dali, all along his life, talked about this trauma , which led him to this constant need of being different, of being the main attraction.
Michael Jackson , though performing in a different field of art , walked the same kind of path, and also had this need to be different, even from his own brothers , this need to lead his own life and career away from “the Jackson five”.

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.
