OUT OF THE BOX: Artists Play Chess | World Chess Hall of Fame

OUT OF THE BOX: Artists Play Chess | World Chess Hall of Fame | Art You Need | Scoop.it

Although this exhibition is over, browse through the images for some wonderful interpretations of the game.

 

OUT OF THE BOX: Artists Play Chess is an exploration of artworks that consider chess both at the formal level and at the level of actual play.

Comprising a wide breadth of media, these artworks demonstrate an integration of chess that goes beyond the visual, incorporating elements of play or strategy that invite the viewer to reflect on the game’s intricate operations. The theme of this exhibition will remind many of the chess-inspired strategic maneuvers of one of the twentieth century’s most respected and controversial artists, Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968), whose intellectual depth, ironic wit, and playful spirit are echoed in the similarly challenging, irreverent, and quixotic works in this gallery. These artworks demonstrate how the nature of the game complicates and enriches static media such as sculpture, or time-based media such as video, and draws the spectator into the work in a way that is truly inimitable to chess.

Philadelphia Museum of Art - Dancing around the Bride: Cage, Cunningham, Johns, Rauschenberg, and Duchamp

Philadelphia Museum of Art - Dancing around the Bride: Cage, Cunningham, Johns, Rauschenberg, and Duchamp | Art You Need | Scoop.it

Dancing around the Bride is the first exhibition to explore the interwoven lives, works, and experimental spirit of Marcel Duchamp (American, born France, 1887–1968) and four of the most important American postwar artists: composer John Cage (1912–1992), choreographer Merce Cunningham (1919–2009), and visual artists Jasper Johns (born 1930) and Robert Rauschenberg (1925–2008). Creating both individually and together, they profoundly affected the direction of postwar avant-garde art and American culture as a whole.

Saltz Challenges: Produce a Perfect Faux Gerhard Richter Painting, and I’ll Buy It | Art You Need | Scoop.it

 "So, last winter, I put out a call on Facebook. I’d pay anyone $155 plus the cost of materials to make me a perfect fake by Richter, Ryman, Flavin, Fontana, Du­champ, Hirst, Guyton, or Agnes Martin. (Why $155? It’s enough money to me that the painting had to be worth it, and 55 is a funnier number than 50.)"

Newark Museum-Angels & Tomboys | Art You Need | Scoop.it

Angels & Tomboys: Girlhood in 19th-Century American Art is a major traveling loan exhibition, which is the first to examine nineteenth-century depictions of girls in paintings, sculpture, prints and photographs.  Featuring approximately 80 masterworks by John Singer Sargent, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, Cecilia Beaux and William Merritt Chase, the exhibition analyzes the myriad ways that artists vigorously participated in the artistic and social construction of girlhood while also revealing the hopes and fears that adults had for their children. While the sentimental portrayal of girls as angelic, passive and domestic was the pervasive characterization, this project also identifies and investigates compelling and transgressive female images including tomboys, working children and adolescents..
