Silk – Interactive Generative Art. Inspirograph. Matisse & Picasso. Modern art was born ugly. “It was Matisse who took the first step into the undiscovered land of the ugly,” an American critic wrote, describing the 1910 Salon des Indépendents in Paris. “The drawing was crude past all belief, the color was as atrocious as the subject. Had a new era of art begun?” Even Matisse himself was sometimes shocked by his creations. According to his biographer Hilary Spurling, “His own paintings filled him with perturbation. If Henri Matisse was regarded as the father of modern art at the dawn of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso was sleeping with the same muse.

Their relationship and their art take on new significance in a remarkable exhibition, “Matisse Picasso,” opening February 13 at New York’s Museum of Modern Art in its temporary location in Queens.

Photos of Children From Around the World With Their Most Prized Possessions. Chiwa – Mchinji, Malawi Shot over a period of 18 months, Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti‘s project Toy Stories compiles photos of children from around the world with their prized possesions—their toys.

Galimberti explores the universality of being a kid amidst the diversity of the countless corners of the world, saying, “at their age, they are pretty all much the same; they just want to play.” But it’s how they play that seemed to differ from country to country. Galimberti found that children in richer countries were more possessive with their toys and that it took time before they allowed him to play with them (which is what he would do pre-shoot before arranging the toys), whereas in poorer countries he found it much easier to quickly interact, even if there were just two or three toys between them. There were similarites too, especially in the functional and protective powers the toys represented for their proud owners.

Stella – Montecchio, Italy Pavel – Kiev, Ukraine. La France vue du sol : le regard de Raymond Depardon - Arts et scènes. En photographiant des lieux si ordinaires qu'on ne les voit plus, Raymond Depardon dresse un portrait intime et pluriel de la France moderne. Pour “Télérama”, il confronte son regard à celui du géographe Michel Lussault. Un camping-car, un GPS qui repère les départementales, des kilomètres de pellicule, une chambre photographique format 20 x 25... et, un jour d'automne 2004, le photographe Raymond Depardon a pris la route, direction « la France ». Une idée folle, lorsqu'on y songe. Car c'est quoi, « la France » ? Ne cherchez pas le catalogue de nos belles régions, pas de « terre de contrastes », ni de pittoresque, ni de patrimoine. Voulant rassembler plus qu'opposer les lieux, le photographe a même choisi de ne pas localiser ses images par des légendes. La France de Depardon est plutôt celle « qui reste » quand on oublie Paris et la région parisienne, les centres des grandes villes, les banlieues, et même le pays agricole.

Alspach, Haut-Rhin Michel Lussault : Entièrement ­d'accord. Des images époustouflantes des civilisations et des peuples primitifs en voie de disparition ! Le photographe Jimmy Nelson entend garder trace de civilisations en passe de disparaître. Aux quatre coins du globe. C’est en visitant 35 de ces tribus plus ou moins célèbres que le reporter a pu dresser ce constat. Tout en tirant le portrait de nombreux autochtones pour des photos assez réussies. Les photos sont, il faut le dire, assez impressionnantes et glaçantes (on peut d’ailleurs acquérir le livre regroupant l’ensemble des clichés par ici). Beauté des paysages, altérité radicale. Les Kazakhs, Asie centrale Peuple kazakh est l’un des peuples musulmans d’origine turque, qui sont stationnés dans la partie nord de l’Asie centrale, en particulier dans la zone située entre la Sibérie et la mer Noire.
