Artists too have their myths. The lies told to artists mirror the lies told to women. Be good enough, be pretty enough, and that guy or gallery will sweep you off your feet, to the picket-fenced land of generous collectors and two-and-a-half kids. But, make the first move, seize your destiny, and you’re a whore.

Elvis at 21 delves into the puzzling nature of sex appeal, charisma, and intimacy | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Before he was The King, Elvis Presley was a shy-but-charismatic young man who couldn't have known what curious life lay in store. The photography exhibition Elvis at 21, which opens at Fort Worth Museum of Science and History on May 25, presents an intimate window into the ineffability of fame, shot on the cusp of the young musician's international superstardom during the formative days of his enduring mythos.

The Second Sex – a visual footnote | e-flux

The Second Sex – a visual footnote | e-flux | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

A proposal by Tobi Maier, curator in residency

 

The exhibition The Second Sex – a visual footnote is a visual essay inspired by the book of the same name by French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir, whose existentialist take on many of the issues of feminism first emerged with the publication of Le Deuxième Sexe in 1949. One of de Beauvoir’s principal challenges was to foster women’s emancipation and the recognition of their working force. Through a close reading of de Beauvoir’s seminal book, the exhibition introduces a number of works that lean towards ideas highlighted in her texts, such as representations of women in myths and the descriptions of their lived situations.

 

The Second Sex – a visual footnote presents installations by three woman artists spanning a variety of media, from film, sculpture, and photography to collage.

If It’s Antique Is It Still Porn? | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

If you thought the matter of who makes art exploring the issue of abortion difficult, perhaps the following antique erotic artworks will be too upsetting. That’s your warning to leave.

 

For these works go beyond the issue of basic nudity in art, beyond even the matter of erotic art, to  explore sexuality along with religion and what appears to be the opulence of wealth.

Pin-Up Queens: Three Female Artists Who Shaped the American Dream Girl

Pin-Up Queens: Three Female Artists Who Shaped the American Dream Girl | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

“So many women are left out of historical records,” Dahlsad says. “Men will say, ‘I want to show off what my father did; he deserves to shine. Someone should do a book on him!’ Daughters don’t do that about their moms to the same degree, so often things get thrown away. How many men would look at their archives say, ‘Just take it all to the dumpster’? Somebody would be saying, ‘You can’t do that! You’re George Petty. Put it back!’”

You don't need to pay for it now. They are not even taking payments for anyone to pay for a new account. But, they will let those who currently have paid accounts to keep paying. Mainly just to not see ads and have stats for the photos posted.

Move Over Barbie: This Dress Up Is for Real

Move Over Barbie: This Dress Up Is for Real | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Austin, Texas based “lifestyle” photographer Jaime C. Moore is sick of Barbie. And Disney Princesses too. Now before your feathers get all ruffled, let’s talk about why. As the mother of a 5 year-old daughter and a professional photographer, Jaime wanted to take photos of her daughter in new and creative ways that would not only look great on film, but also get her daughter thinking about the kind of woman she can grow up to be. So she turned to real women like Marie Curie, Sojourner Truth and those featured here for inspiration, and what came out, is absolutely beautiful and inspiring.

A photographer who displayed Google Streetview images of prostitutes in his gallery has been nominated to win a £30,000 art prize.


Mishka Henner, 36, searched lurid internet forums to find out where sex workers can be found and then looked up their locations using Google's street cameras.


His collection of screenshots has now earned him one of four nominations for the prestigious Deutsche Börse photography award.

Critics React to Folk Art Museum’s Imminent Demolition | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Just as designers have reacted to the death sentence of Ted Williams and Billie Tsien’s American Folk Art Museum building, forming petitions and a tumblr (#FolkMoMA), architecture critics have also been wielding their weapon – words – and entering the fray.

Most critics have responded with outrage (it’s “nothing less than cultural vandalism” says Martin Filler), denouncing MoMA’s prioritization of corporate needs over cultural value. However, a few are actually defending MoMA’s decision, saying the building was never ideal for displaying art anyway
