Beautiful paintings of the drunkards and typists of the Russian ballet

Beautiful paintings of the drunkards and typists of the Russian ballet | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

We’re no ballet aficionados, but we wouldn’t usually associate drunkards, typists and factory workers with the grace and poise of the discipline. However, as these beautiful gouache painting by Tatiana Bruni show, there’s much more to ballet than tutus and swan lake, with her angular figures, bold colours and sometimes grotesquely postured characters. The paintings show costume designs for Dmitri Shostakovich’s 1931 ballet The Bolt, and are going on show at London’s Gallery for Russian Arts and Design alongside a series of period photographs.

on the move - Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The photo essay and the photo book are both classic ways of telling stories through photographs. But photographers are increasingly exploring new ways of storytelling made possible by technological advances. Apps, audiovisual installations, and websites present opportunities for less linear forms of narrative. This development also reflects in graphic design. The role of the graphic designer is no longer confined to “choosing the image sequence” of a photo book.

Malick Sidibe at Jack Shainman Gallery

Malick Sidibe at Jack Shainman Gallery | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The photographs of Malick Sidibé remind us how the political content of an image can shift and evolve under the unpredictable influences of time and the arrival of new contexts. Currently on view at Jack Shainman Gallery, Sidibé’s work is a mix of black-and-white portraits and candid shots of local people from his native Bamako, Mali. The artist first began his work in photography by assisting a French colonial photographer and then later opened his own studio, Studio Malick, in 1962 in Bamako. Mali gained liberation from France in 1960, and Sidibé’s photographs taken throughout the ’60s and ’70s document a community of young Bamakois during this postcolonial transition and the subsequent socialist and military regimes.

Muse: Mickalene Thomas Photographs and tête-à-tête

Muse: Mickalene Thomas Photographs and tête-à-tête | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Mickalene Thomas, known for her large-scale, multi-textured, and rhinestone-encrusted paintings of domestic interiors and portraits, has also identified the photographic image as a defining touchstone for her practice. Thomas first began to photograph herself and her mother as a student at Yale—a pivotal experience for her as an artist. While working across multiple series, much of her photographic work functions as a personal act of deconstruction and reappropriation—both of images she has created herself and images she has singled out as influence. With each series, she grapples with and asserts new definitions of beauty and inspiration.

Galerie Maeght : Olivier Dassault, Language de Mur

Galerie Maeght : Olivier Dassault, Language de Mur | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Olivier Dassault’s photographs will be on show at Galerie Maeght until 5 December. If there is one thing that can’t be denied about Dassault, it is his love – indeed his passion – for photography. I remember seeing him take his first images to Roger Therond and Eric Colmet D’Aage at PHOTO in 1975. He’s been published five or six times. My favourite images are the wonderful nudes of Anne Parillaud in April 1982.

Lartigue In Colors at La Maison Européenne de la Photographie

Lartigue In Colors at La Maison Européenne de la Photographie | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“Why do we like Lartigue so much? And even more in color? Is it the “easy” seduction of a colorful palette? Its immediately sensuality? Its musicality? All of that, of course, but it’s also something else… I often say that Lartigue’s greatest talent was getting everybody to agree. The definition of happiness varies from person to person, but Lartigue is considered the ‘photographer of happiness’ almost unanimously. In reality, things are a little more complicated. Lartigue is neither smug nor a happy fool. He shows himself to be deeply torn between two contradictory currents: his amazement at life and beauty on the one hand, and his despair over his inability to prevent their disappearance. That despair is what makes him an artist, what he called his, ‘little sickness.’”
