Burning Man :: Welcome Home ateacomp | Asociación Argentina de Teatro Comparado Los Murales de LOTO | La Grulla de Hermes Gracias a los muros y las ciudades que los contienen Por: Jué Karollys (Loto) Cuál sería la pregunta más adecuada para hacerle a un artista. Más precisamente, a uno que se dedique a pintar paredes en la calle, y más precisamente, que esa pregunta, sea sólo una… ¿Qué significa para ti el arte? pero si tuviese que responder el artista a ella, elegiría, de su repertorio de convicciones, en lo más profundo de su biblioteca mental, las palabras que siempre dijo su maestro de dibujo: ” el arte está más allá de nosotros, es difícil definirlo, es más honesto vivirlo…”, sí, creo que eso diría el artista. Pero dado que la pregunta no apunta específicamente al oficio de éste artista como tal, creo que la más indicada para éste caso sería: ¿qué significa pintar para ti una pared en la calle?

Los primeros dias de Banksy en NY Hace unos días se anunció que Banksy haría una residencia artística en Nueva York. Después de meses de ausencia, el graffitero inglés regresa con "Better Out Than In" mostrando una obra diaria durante el mes de octubre. Aquí les mostramos las obras más relevantes que hasta el día de hoy se han dado a conocer: Con esta primera pieza, Banksy comenzó su nueva "exposición" en las calles de Manhattan. El problema de ser Banksy y de trabajar en NY, es que nunca serás bien recibido por los graffiteros locales. Así lucía la pieza a unas cuantas horas de darse a conocer. La segunda pieza no estuvo en las calles. Una buena pieza haciendo referencia al amor y todas las heridas que éste puede causar. Pero para Omar, graffitero local, la pieza no estaba completa. En la puerta de una fábrica de Greenpoint, al norte de Brooklyn apareció esto. En un terreno de Lower East Side apareció esto. Después apareció este tierno castor quien derrumbó un poste en East New York.

Badlands (1973) atlasobscura Two figures meet each other face to face. The sharp edges of their geometric bodies are perfect for their precise movements and the lined universe that surrounds them. The entire scene is so perfectly mathematical, it may take you a couple of seconds to realize these are human dancers and not archaic animations. One of the most celebrated yet surprisingly obscure works associated with the Bauhaus School in Germany, The Triadic Ballet is an avant-garde exploration of space, dance, and the human body. It came from the brilliant mind of Oskar Schlemmer, a painter, sculptor, dancer, and designer, amongst many other things. Obsessed with the idea of freeing art from its restrictions, he used choreographed geography to push the boundaries of the way we use our body. The ballet has been reproduced several times. If three-and-a-half minutes of being under the spell of The Triadic Ballet are not enough, you can enjoy the full version of the performance:

atlasobscura In the 1940s, Argentina was tango and tango was Argentina. Born in the marginalized outskirts and upscale brothels of Buenos Aires, the musical genre slowly but surely seeped into the very roots of the country’s culture and took a strong hold. Fathers would spend years teaching their sons how to dance, singers like Carlos Gardel were national figures, and social gatherings were always accompanied by the sound of the tango concertina, the bandoneon. Then, two disparate but hugely impactful things arrived: a series of military dictatorships and rock ‘n’ roll. The 20th century in Argentina was marked by political, social, and economic unrest. But his censorship of the opposition and authoritarian rule gave rise to the self-named Liberating Revolution in 1955, which overthrew him and placed in power a military regime. Peron ruled once again as president from 1973 until his death in 1974. There was also the question of censorship. And then there was the horror of living under the regimes.

These amazing 3D illusions were made using a projection called anamorphosis which allows to create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle. Today, we want to show you another wonderful 3D illusion which is installed in front of the steps of Paris’s city hall. French artist François Abélanet created this incredible 3-dimensional grass globe with the help of about ninety workers and called it ‘Qui croire?’ Website: Images © Déborah Lesage / Mairie de Paris , © Discover Paris!
