Vanitas: Fashion and Art | e-flux

Vanitas: Fashion and Art | e-flux | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Greta Alfaro, In Ictu Oculi, 2009.

 

"Vanitas: Fashion and Art examines the theme of vanitas as expressed by avant-garde ready-to-wear and haute couture fashion, and contemporary artworks. Traditionally used to refer to a type of still life painting popular in the Netherlands during the seventeenth century, the term ‘vanitas’ has become more generally associated with art that meditates on the ephemeral character of earthly pleasures and worldly accomplishments, and highlights the fragility of our desires in the face of the inevitability of death. With its accelerated cycle of obsolescence, explicit manifestation of status and material success, and potential for narcissistic self-regard, fashion is a particularly apt medium through which to explore this exhibition’s central theme."

@PicPedant is obsessed with proper photo attribution on Twitter | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Photographers know it. If you post your work on a website like Flickr or 500px, chances are that it will be shared on social networks. This is great, of course, unless sharers "forget" to  give credit where credit is due or try to claim ownership of the shots.

Martha Graham- Gender and the haunting of a dance pioneer

Martha Graham- Gender and the haunting of a dance pioneer | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it
In her heyday, Martha Graham’s name was internationally recognized within the modern dance world, and though trends in choreography continue to change, her status in dance still inspires regard. In this, the first extended feminist look at this modern dance pioneer, Victoria Thoms explores the cult of Graham and her dancing through a feminist lens that exposes the gendered meaning behind much of her work. Thoms synthesizes a diverse archive of material on Graham from films, photographs, memoir, and critique in order to uniquely highlight her contribution to the dance world and arts culture in general.

155 Years Before the First Animated Gif, Joseph Plateau Set Images in Motion with the Phenakistoscope | Colossal

155 Years Before the First Animated Gif, Joseph Plateau Set Images in Motion with the Phenakistoscope | Colossal | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Nearly 155 years before CompuServe debuted the first animated gif in 1987, Belgian physicist Joseph Plateau unveiled an invention called the Phenakistoscope, a device that is largely considered to be the first mechanism for true animation. The simple gadget relied on the persistence of vision principle to display the illusion of images in motion.

Feminist Street Art of Cairo - Scoop Empire

Feminist Street Art of Cairo - Scoop Empire | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"Since the revolution began in 2011, Cairo has witnessed a blossoming of street art expressing voices from many segments of Egyptian society and social movements. The women’s movement, defined in broad terms, was among the first to express its messages of anti-harassment, anti-brutality and freedom of agency on the city’s walls. Many of the images have gone as quickly as they’ve come due to weekly repainting projects by the Ministry of Interior, but luckily they were documented in time by savior photographers and will now live on forever on the interwebz.

Here is our round-up of feminist street art in Cairo:..."

Karoliina Paappa: The Girl and the Tiger

Karoliina Paappa: The Girl and the Tiger | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

The die-cut scraps from our childhood come to life in Karoliina Paappa's exhibition Tyttö ja tiikeri (The Girl and the Tiger). A tiger has escaped from the pages of a scrap album and landed in a Jugendstil apartment. A lush display of fruit and flower baskets, typical imagery in die-cut scraps, surrounds coffee-drinkers, as deer and cats keep them company. Paappa's works joyfully play with scale, colour and the intertwinement of daily life and illusion. Viewers feel the urge to become part of Paappa's magical and strange fairy-tale world.
