Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University The National Gallery The Digital Comic Museum - Free and Public Domain Comic Books 1.8 Million Free Works of Art from World-Class Museums: A Meta List of Great Art Available Online Since the first stirrings of the internet, artists and curators have puzzled over what the fluidity of online space would do to the experience of viewing works of art. At a conference on the subject in 2001, Susan Hazan of the Israel Museum wondered whether there is “space for enchantment in a technological world?” She referred to Walter Benjamin’s ruminations on the “potentially liberating phenomenon” of technologically reproduced art, yet also noted that “what was forfeited in this process were the ‘aura’ and the authority of the object containing within it the values of cultural heritage and tradition.” Evaluating a number of online galleries of the time, Hazan found that “the speed with which we are able to access remote museums and pull them up side by side on the screen is alarmingly immediate.” Fifteen years after her essay, the number of museums that have made their collections available online whole, or in part, has grown exponentially and shows no signs of slowing.

Garbis Aprikian Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Garbis Aprikian, né à Alexandrie en 1926, est un musicien issu de la diaspora arménienne. Il a composé de nombreuses œuvres vocales et instrumentales où la technique musicale occidentale (contrepoint, fugue, .…) se marie aux mélodies arméniennes. En tant qu’interprète, Garbis Aprikian a dirigé près de cinquante ans les chœurs mixtes arméniens de Paris Sipan-Komitas. Biographie[modifier | modifier le code] Né à Alexandrie, Garbis Aprikian participa très jeune à la vie culturelle et artistique de cette ville cosmopolite. Il fait ses études primaires à l'école nationale arménienne « Boghossian », puis au Collège américain.

Architectural Teaching Slide Collection The Block and Koenig slides are two of the smaller unique collections in the possession of the USC Libraries. They document examples of 20th century California architecture that developed stylistically from the foundations of the International Style as established by the 1932 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, titled Modern Architecture: International Exhibition, and of European pre-World War II Modernism. The collection consists of about 1300 slides from the Fritz Block collection that document Modern architecture of Southern California (although there are some slides that pertain to Modern architecture of Northern California), and 100 slides from the collection of Pierre Koenig. Fritz Block (1889-1955) was a German-trained architect, who moved to Los Angeles in 1938. Pierre Koenig (1925-2004) was among the most important Modern architects working in Southern California, and a long-time faculty at the USC School of Architecture.

H-MAN | La nouvelle série OVNI ! Kyoto Embroidery - Google Arts & Culture Embroidery, one of the world’s oldest decorative techniques, was introduced to Japan in the sixth century, about 1,500 years ago. It first arrived in Japan in the form of embroidered Buddha images when Buddhism was introduced to Japan. The oldest surviving embroidery work in Japan is the famous Tenjūkoku shūchō (Embroidery of Long Life in Heaven, owned by Chūgū-ji Temple) commissioned by Prince Shōtoku’s wife Tachibana no Ōiratsume in memory of the Prince after his passing.
