Encrypted Fills Avec l'art, on s'amuse ! Espace jeunesse des musées nationaux français La Réunion des musées nationaux, (RMNGR, fusionnée en 2011 avec le Grand Palais), comporte une section Jeune public fort sympathique où l'on présente des expositions, des jeux et des contenus en histoire de l'art, le tout de très belle manière. Pour découvrir l'histoire de l'art en jouant, de nombreux jeux en ligne, fins et très variés, sont disponibles gratuitement. On peut scénariser une bande dessinée avec Joue à ma BD, à partir d'une oeuvre de l'exposition Hopper ou de Bohèmes, deux expositions en cours, ou, pour les plus petits, colorier certaines des oeuvres de ces expositions. D'autres jeux permettent de créer un film, à partir d'illustrations de jouets ou d'animaux de telle ou telle exposition. On peut y faire un quiz sur Marie-Antoinette ou l'homme de Néandertal, un casse-tête à partir d'une oeuvre d'Andy Warhol, retrouver les paysages peints par Monet sur une carte de l'Europe, comparer les oeuvres de Picasso avec celles des maîtres, etc.
TheyAreAnimators #16: Michael Frei | Directors Notes “At the age of 15 I began an apprenticeship as a building construction draughtsman. For the next four years I was mainly drawing straight lines. I liked to fiddle around with software in my spare time and eventually started to record myself playing with instruments and my voice. After one semester at the animation department in Lucerne I left and joined the Estonian Academy of Art in Tallinn, where I created the animated short ‘Not About Us’ in my first year. There are many great artists out there that are inspirational. For me, the most interesting ideas are usually the ones I struggle describing in words. My work is very much about reduction. During the production of ‘PLUG & PLAY’ I traveled quite a lot and I had a very tight budget, so I decided to get rid of paper and pens and drew the film entirely using the integrated touchpad on my laptop using my index finger. What I especially like about hands is their expressiveness. The digital revolution in media is happening.

Plato's Aesthetics 1. Beauty The study of Plato's account of beauty must begin with one pronounced warning about terminology. The Greek adjective kalon only approximates to the English “beautiful,” so that not everything Plato says about a kalon thing will belong in a summary of his aesthetic theories. Readers can take this distinction between the Greek and English terms too far. It is more tempting to argue against equating words from different languages than to insist on treating them interchangeably. But even given these qualifications the reader should know how to tell what is beautiful from what is kalon. More typically kalon appears in contexts to which “beautiful” would fit awkwardly or not at all. Because kalon does not always apply when “beautiful” does, and conversely much can be kalon that no one calls beautiful, translators may use other words. The telling criterion will be not philological but philosophical. 1.1 Hippias Major After Hippias fails, Socrates tries out three definitions. 2. 3. 4.
The Motion Photography Prize in Association with Google+ Motion photography has emerged as a new trend, but until recently required special tools and know-how. As part of its wider mission to enable people to pursue and express their interests, Google+ allows anyone to automatically animate a series of still photographs and turn them into motion photography. In recognition of the exciting potential of this new technology, the Saatchi Gallery and Google+ present the Motion Photography Prize, the first global open entry competition celebrating this new creative art form. The exhibition showcases the work of the finalists of the six categories as well as the other 54 shortlisted motion photographs judged by a panel of forward-thinkers comprised of film director Baz Luhrmann, artists Shezad Dawood, Tracey Emin and Cindy Sherman and Saatchi Gallery CEO Nigel Hurst. Motion Photography Prize Official Rules In order to enter the Contest, you must agree to these Official Rules ("Rules"). The Contest begins at 09:00:00 A.M. Terms Applicable to All Prizes.

How to Identify Bad Art Dealers & Galleries - Tips and Pointers << Back to Articles for Artists << Back to Articles for Collectors What you are about to read is a follow-up to the article Art Dealers From Hell and How to Spot Them... As in any profession, the large majority of art dealers and art galleries are totally reputable, responsible and considerate of everyone they do business with. Unfortunately, a despicable few are anything but. So in honor of that small but sleazy cadre of scoundrels, what follows is a list of behaviors to watch out for and hopefully to avoid, regardless of whether you're an artist or a collector. * Art dealers from hell constantly remind artists how important they are and how important their galleries are (the inference, of course, being how unimportant the artists are). * They tell artists they're doing them huge favors by representing them or showing their art. * Bad art dealers want a cut of everything-- past, present and future-- even transactions taking place within previously established relationships.
