Pierre Huyghe at Centre Pompidou, Paris / MOUSSE CONTEMPORARY ART MAGAZINE If you walk to the Centre Pompidou in Paris from the direction of the Seine, you will most likely end up in a little public square that stretches between the Beaubourg and the church of Saint-Merri: Place Igor Stravinsky. Here, in a shallow basin measuring 580 square meters, sixteen sculptures made in 1983 by Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle entertain onlookers with their entirely whimsical demeanor, surfing along and spraying water at each other. The bright colors of the kinetic statues, the joy and lightheartedness of their movements, make the whole composition look like a sculptural spin-off of Disney’s Fantasia. But it wouldn’t have seemed so remarkably flawless had the administrators followed the original instructions left by Tinguely, who never wanted the water in the basin to be treated, as he preferred that moss eventually be allowed to grow (this did not happen, and the sculptures today looks almost identical to when they were unveiled exactly 30 years ago).
Paul Landl, Fotograf Symbolist Photography Manifesto The repertoire of forms and shapes of a symbolist photographer encompasses the depiction of theatrical and monumental elements, aestheticism and originality. Opulence is contrasted with simplicity. The world of thoughts of a symbolist photographer in aphorisms The combination of the hundredths of a second of taking a photo and the time consuming subsequent editing is one closed system. The artistic process is purer and more exciting than the expected result The art is to try to suit yourself and others. The love of kitsch is the cleverness to put all things good and evil into an attractive light. My heart is unable to translate it. Even the wise do not always comprehend the intention. The wave of reason ebbs away in the crowd. Behaviour may be unprofessional, but the works are not Once turned to poetry, one will always look for self-fulfilment in the perfect word. The beauty of the individual is in the eye of the beholder. We are exactly what we have decided to be

Water to Paper, Paint to Sky: The Art of Tyrus Wong | The Walt Disney Family Museum August 15–February 3, 2014 From August 15, 2013 to February 3, 2014, The Walt Disney Family Museum will present the exhibition Water to Paper, Paint to Sky: The Art of Tyrus Wong. Organized by Michael Labrie, the museum’s director of collections, the exhibition will focus on the life and work of Chinese-American artist Tyrus Wong—a celebrated painter, muralist, kite maker, lithographer, Hollywood sketch artist, calligrapher, ceramicist, and Disney Legend. At age 102, Wong is still a practicing artist today. This retrospective features more than 150 works including paintings, sculptures, works on paper, painted scarves, kites, and more. In 1938, Wong took a job at the Walt Disney Studios as an inbetweener, one who goes through the tedious process of making “in-between” drawings that filled out the movement of the characters between the animators’ key drawings. In 2001, Wong was named a Disney Legend, and his work continues to inspire and influence the leading animators of today.
Bill Bass - home page Projects | The Wade Brothers John Frame - Portland Art Museum Three Fragments of a Lost Tale Art, music, poetry, and film come together in John Frame’s ambitious project The Tale of the Crippled Boy. The end goal of this ongoing project is a feature-length collection of animated and live film vignettes. Since 2006, Frame, a California-based sculptor, has been working toward the creation of a stop-motion animated drama featuring an eclectic cast of fully articulated characters composed of found materials and meticulously carved wood. The exhibition will include the sculptures that have become the cast of characters in Frame’s evolving full-length film, as well as the film footage created thus far in this monumental project. To learn more about John Frame, visit www.johnframesculpture.com/portland. Originally organized by the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens; the exhibition is curated by Bruce Guenther, chief curator for its Portland presentation. Sponsored in part by The McGeady Family Foundation.

At the time, Milton was teaching at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, and he'd had a show of some of his paintings.
