DeCordova Joins Museum Community In Supporting Detained Artist File photo, Chinese artist Ai Weiwei (AP) BOSTON — A large, red banner with the words “Free Ai Weiwei” now hangs outside the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln. It’s a peaceful gesture expressing concern for acclaimed Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. He was arrested by Chinese police on April 3. “We wanted to have a public response and keep the public aware of Ai Weiwei,” said deCordova director Dennis Kois, “so we decided to do something very simple and straightforward.” The museum is also offering literature to visitors in the lobby. Ai Weiwei is known for being outspoken and creating politically charged works. “As a contemporary art museum we’re part of a larger world, a larger dialogue and a larger art-making community,” Kois said. This image shows a two-story-high black-and-white photograph of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei outside the Lisson Gallery in London. Speaking by phone from North Carolina, Kois said Ai Weiwei’s arrest is a hot topic among his peers.

This time, after a picture was taken, it was immediately put into an array of older photos that would begin running across the screens. Suddenly, people sitting at the computers were looking at pictures of themselves that dissolved into photos of others who also had gazed into the screens. “Most people instinctively quit the app less than 10 seconds after recognizing their own face,” Mr. No one in the stores got angry, he said: “During the exhibition, people were just confused and laughed.” Apple, however, was not amused.

La matière noire de Lee Jin Woo L’herbe pousse sur les tableaux de Lee Jin Woo, peintre coréen, installé à Paris depuis une dizaine d’années. Ses œuvres végétales sont une réponse au mur érigé devant lui. Le motif du mur revient fréquemment dans ses grandes compositions. Pour les réaliser, il utilise des feuilles de papier traditionnel coréen, le hanji - créé à partir des fibres du mûrier - qu’il superpose par dizaine. La surface ressemble alors à une écorce sur laquelle il intervient en y incorporant toutes sortes de matériaux, pigments, encre, charbon, cendres, terre, graines, herbe...Progressivement, au gré de ses interventions, il fait disparaître une multitude de personnages dessinés au commencement de sa peinture. Lee Jin Woo, explique, qu'«une fois face à ma peinture, je deviens un bras qui peint.

From Art Basel daily editionPublished online: 14 June 2011 Kapoor is not Beijing-bound london. Kapoor’s spokeswoman confirmed to The Art Newspaper that he had been invited to China, but “he is not going to proceed in view of the detention of Ai Weiwei.” Discussions began about a potential exhibition at the National Museum of China last October, when two directors of London’s Lisson Gallery (which represents Kapoor, stand 2.1/K12 at Art Basel) were in Beijing.

People Staring at Computers “People Staring at Computers” is a photographic intervention. I wrote a simple application that took one picture every minute. If it found a face, it uploaded the photo to my server. Before sharing the photos online, I decided to exhibit them in the same places they were originally captured. Most people instinctively quit the app less than 10 seconds after recognizing their own face, so the exhibition was relegated to the unused machines. Selfie: #moi (et la Joconde) Ça pourrait être une photo de fin de soirée. Nanna Gerdes à l'air ravi à côté de son pote Hannibal, qui rigole bien aussi. Sauf que Hannibal est un squelette, mais ça se comprend mieux quand on sait que madame Gerdes est la conservatrice du musée médical de Copenhague, la maison d'Hannibal. Les «selfies» (photos de soi-même) décalées avec des œuvres d’art, c'est la nouvelle tendance Twitter et elles fleurissent sur le réseau. Et pour cause. Le 22 janvier été inauguré le Museum Selfie Day, à l'initiative de la Britannique Marlene Dixon, une passionnée de musées qui a créé, il y a trois ans, le site CultureThemes avec un but précis: «Montrer que la culture est fun!» «On m’a dit que le selfie c’était so 2013, mais je voulais montrer que les musées, les galeries, et les visiteurs peuvent s’amuser avec les photos», explique-t-elle.
