Movie Poster of the Week: “Weekend” on Notebook

Movie Poster of the Week: “Weekend” on Notebook | Art You Need | Scoop.it

Great article on poster designer Steve Chow: Steve Chow has turned a pile-up of two cars and a small plane into a vertical totem pole simply by turning the image on its side. It works because of the upended red car which is now horizontal (one of the few things in the poster which seems to be the right way around) along with the simple line of title type along its underbelly. It also works, above all, because of its riot of color.

International Contemporary Art - mbam.qc.ca | Art You Need | Scoop.it

I went to Montreal to attend the exhibition of Feininger's drawings and photographs. it was certainly worth leaving the country for.  If you plan a weekend trip and museums are part of your sightseeing list, I recommend Montreal- there is an excellently curated exhibit about "lost neighborhoods" at the Centre d'histoire de Montréal.
The show, featuring touching interviews and video clips of people who were dislocated in the name of urban progress, is raw and impressive.

I saw this amazing, 6-screen installation in Montreal.  I recommend you conduct an internet search to read more about this innovative projection system.

The 6 screens allowed the viewer to observe a play from different points of view in the playing space, while walking around the screen structure in total darkness, armed with 3D glasses.  Here's more:

As part of the International Digital Arts Biennial:

One day I will be able to afford this collection of great filmaking.  I remember when I began to recognize the logog- and discovered that every time I really embraced a film, it was a Janus film. Good news is many of these are represented in the Criterion Collection- which is available on Hulu.
