Ren Hang | NUE Galerie (Paris)

Ren Hang | NUE Galerie (Paris) | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“Nudity is not published in China,” Beijing-based photographer Ren Hang told Pas Un Autre. “An exhibition was canceled, someone spat at my work, cameras getting confiscated by the police, and almost going to jail.”

Ren Hang’s photos contain a lot of nudity, but it’s not really pornographic titillation. Pop mysticism? (Erupting in clusters of birds) Pop physics? (Arranged in precarious piles) Absurdism? (Ass up, head in a ground hole) Avant-garde lite? (Drenched in red, squatting with flowers) Ok, it’s a bit Ryan McGinley with the blue smoke stacks in the woods, but… It works.

Ren Hang’s new exhibit opens at the Paris NUE gallery later this month. “La Chine a Nue,” Ren Hang, Jan 17 – Mar 14, NUE gallerie, Paris

10 Charts About Sex

10 Charts About Sex | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

It is our goal today to create graphics of similar concision and power, but about something more useful than war—sex.

All the data below, even the most personal stuff, has been gleaned from real user activity on OkCupid. Some of it our users have told us outright by answering match questions; some of it we've had to learn from observation.

Other than the unifying theme, sex, there's no big point or thesis to this post: just comparisons, correlations, and quirky trends.

SOSOSO Magazine

SOSOSO Magazine | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

VERNISSAGE du nouveau magazine érotique SOSOSO ce vendredi 8 mars 2013, lors de la Fête du Slip, au Zinema (Lausanne). De 18h à 23h, les visiteurs auront également la possibilité de découvrir les tirages originaux des photographies, ainsi que les images non publiées.

 

Entre 20h et 21h., toujours dans le cadre du vernissage, la performance shibari "Bodies of light" de Michaël Ronsky se déroulera dans la même salle.

 

SOSOSO paraîtra quatre fois par année, il se positionne comme une plateforme ouverte sur le thème des sexualités. La ligne graphique et éditoriale changera à chaque numéro, suivant les sujets abordés et les articles publiés. Le contenu du magazine ne sera en aucun cas pornographique ; ce projet ne recherche ni le spectaculaire, ni la provocation, il s'agit avant tout d'ouvrir le débat et de donner la possibilité à quiconque de soumettre ses expériences et ses réflexions.
