Wovon wir reden, wenn wir von Pop reden ... | Kolumnen | Archiv | frieze d/e | Art You Need | Scoop.it

Some people argue about love; we argue about Pop. Instead of uniting us in ebullience, Pop makes us flat and obstinate, like bubble gum stuck to the sole of a shoe. Pop Art is a different matter; we can agree on the works found under this historical label. But the word ‘Pop’ – standing alone or in front of ‘culture’, ‘music’, ‘life’ – overflows with meanings that polarize us.

Slow Burn

by Bradley Rubenstein

 

Painting Rodney Dickson Klemens Gasser & Tanja Grunert, Inc. 524 West , 19th Street, New York, New York 10011 June 5, 2012 - July 13, 2012

To call Rodney Dickson a painter’s painter does him something of a disservice, implying that his work speaks only to the few and initiated. In fact, both Dickson and his paintings strive for a more communal, universal language—one that collectively might understand the search that he undertakes with each painting. In an age that has seen the deconstruction, reconstruction, and post-reconstruction of painting, Dickson reaches back to an era that saw the act of painterly engagement as, first and foremost, an attempt at expression. His recent works at Gasser & Grunert show him at the peak of his career.

Gauguin, Cézanne, Matisse: Visions of Arcadia; exhibition explores this classical theme

Gauguin, Cézanne, Matisse: Visions of Arcadia; exhibition explores this classical theme | Art You Need | Scoop.it

"B PHILADELPHIA, PA.- / The dream of Arcadia, a mythic place of beauty and repose where humankind lives in harmony with nature, has held an enduring appeal for artists since antiquity. With its promise of calm, simplicity, and order, it has served as both an inspiration—the sought for, but never fulfilled ideal of a paradise here on earth—and as an image of refuge, a place that is distant and seemingly protected from the vicissitudes of life."

  Lunch Hour NYC looks back at more than a century of New York lunches, when the city’s early power brokers invented what was yet to be called “power lunch,” local charities established a 3-cent school lunch, and visitors with guidebooks thronged Times Square to eat lunch at the Automat.“Every thing is done differently in New York from anywhere else—but in eating the difference is more striking than in any other branch of human economy.” —George Foster, New York in Slices, 1849

Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show - ICA - Institute of Contemporary Art - Philadelphia, PA

Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show - ICA - Institute of Contemporary Art - Philadelphia, PA | Art You Need | Scoop.it

Let's all go:

 

Graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister not only tests the boundary between art and design, he often transgresses it through his imaginative implementation of typography. Filling the Institute of Contemporary Art's (ICA) entire second-floor galleries and Ramp, and activating the in-between spaces of the museum, The Happy Show offers visitors the experience of walking into the designer's mind as he attempts to increase his happiness via mediation, cognitive therapy, and mood-altering pharmaceuticals.

 

Stefan Sagmeister (b. 1962 Bregenz, Austria; lives New York) is a designer who blends typography and imagery in striking, fresh, ambitious, and unsettling ways. Having influenced the culture of design over the past decade, he is perhaps best known for his album covers for Talking Heads, Lou Reed, OK Go, and The Rolling Stones, to name only a few, as well as innovative campaigns, for companies like Levis, that have entered the public consciousness.

NGA | Mark Rothko | Classic Paintings 1 | Art You Need | Scoop.it

I'm reading a terrific book about art dealers and there is extensive talk about Rothko- I'm a big fan and his was one of the first that really inspired me to find out more about how to look at art and develop my own understanding.

From the website:

"Rothko largely abandoned conventional titles in 1947, sometimes resorting to numbers or colors in order to distinguish one work from another. The artist also now resisted explaining the meaning of his work. "Silence is so accurate," he said, fearing that words would only paralyze the viewer's mind and imagination. "

DENNIS HOPPER DOUBLE STANDARD

DENNIS HOPPER DOUBLE STANDARD | Art You Need | Scoop.it

Information on the past exhibition. It's not easy to find a gallery of all his amazing work- he's more prolific than you expected. However, it's worth sitting a spell and browsing the web for his work.

"Dennis Hopper Double Standard is the first comprehensive survey exhibition of Dennis Hopper's (b. 1936, Dodge City, Kans.) artistic career to be mounted by a North American museum. Best known for his work in film, Hopper has produced an oeuvre of remarkable breadth that blurs the boundaries between art, film, and popular culture. Curated by Julian Schnabel, whose own work has been inspired by Hopper's fusion of art and film, the exhibition will assemble key selections and bodies of work examining the artist's creative development with a focus on artworks made between 1961 and present day, as many of Hopper's earlier paintings were destroyed in his studio by the 1961 Bel Air fire. The exhibition will be organized in several sections reflecting the cyclical and serial nature of the artist's work."
