Red-Blooded Thing: Smiling Vagina!

Red-Blooded Thing: Smiling Vagina! | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

In Sweden, artist Carolina Falkholt was commissioned to paint a large mural in a new secondary school (about 7th grade to 10th grade in the US), with the subject related to technology, science and the school's proximity to the sea. What did Falkholt paint? A huge happy vagina!

Nothing Really Mattress

Nothing Really Mattress | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Although Dalston in North London is home to a plethora of wonderful street art, this temporary, ahem, installation immediately catches the eye. Naïve, somewhat introspective but with a dark humor, this bears all the hallmarks of one of the UK’s foremost artists and should really be saved for the nation before the elements destroy it. Although the name of the artist is not known for certain, I suspect that Tracey Emin may have been slumming it again.

Photographer's Unbelievable Response To The Objectification Of Women (NSFW)

Photographer's Unbelievable Response To The Objectification Of Women (NSFW) | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Our media has the tendency to bombard us with dehumanizing images of the female body. Instead of presenting women as fully-realized individuals, it dissects us into sexualized parts like “breast,” “butt,” or “thigh.” The photographer Roger Weiss explains this sort of objectification thusly: “The image of women of our times has been reduced to a pattern, a combination of codes and models that lead to the woman/individual instead of the other way around.”

Anita Steckel: Equal Exposure

Anita Steckel: Equal Exposure | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Anita Steckel, Just Waiting for the Bus, Photo-montage, 1969–70

 

"In the 1960s and 1970s, Anita Steckel fought for the public acceptance of explicitly sexual art made by women, as part of the broader feminist art movement that was pushing for a revolution in the gender dynamics that continued to stifle women artists. Steckel’s photo-montages provocatively revamped existing imagery, often adding nudity and references to sexuality in order to vividly convey timely social or political messages.

Selections from Steckel’s archive are currently on view in NMWA’s Betty Boyd Dettre Library and Research Center. Papers, photographs, and art illustrate her boundary-pushing art and activism."

 

Equal Exposure: Anita Steckel’s Fight Against Censorship

Hussein Chalayan, un nouveau souffle pour la mythique maison Madeleine Vionnet

Hussein Chalayan, un nouveau souffle pour la mythique maison Madeleine Vionnet | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"Hussein Chalayan a été nommé à la création de la collection demi couture de la maison Vionnet. Le styliste britannique d'origine chypriote turque présentera sa 1re collection dans le cadre des défilés haute couture de janvier à Paris.

[...]

Né en 1876, Madeleine Vionnet est morte à Paris en 1975. Qualifiée "d'architecte parmi les couturières", elle a été formée à Londres avec Kate Reilly, fournisseur de la famille royale britannique, avant de revenir en France, où elle a travaillé avec les soeurs Callot et plus tard avec Jacques Doucet. Elle a fondé sa maison de couture en 1912 mais a dû la fermer deux ans plus tard en raison de la Première Guerre mondiale. [...]"

Loïs Mailou Jones (1905-1998) painting in her Paris studio in 1937 or 1938 as her cat hangs out on her shoulder. Born in Boston, her mother, Carolyn Dorinda Jones was a hat designer and a beautician, and her father, Thomas Vreeland Jones, was an office building superintendent before becoming a lawyer at age forty. Ms. Jones was encouraged by both parents to pursue art and she graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1927. After studying art at Harvard and Columbia, she established the art department at Palmer Memorial Institute, the black preparatory school founded by Charlotte Hawkins Brown in Sedalia, North Carolina. Ms. Jones then moved on to Howard University in 1930 and remained there until 1977. Photo: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Using art to create awareness on violence against women | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"Jemima Robinson has been living in Kenya for a little more than a year, long enough to understand that rape, be it reported or unreported, is a serious problem here.

It’s so serious that she felt compelled to talk about it, not in words but visually, through a three-dimensional installation entitled ‘327 Unreported’ which is currently up at Kuona Trust through December 20th."

Shutter Madness

Shutter Madness | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Garry Winogrand used to say that he took photographs of things to see what they would look like as photographs. He took a lot of them. He photographed relentlessly: crowds, zoos, dogs, cars, parties, sidewalks, train stations and women, always more women. He'd describe a good night as "thirty-five rolls." A good year might involve a thousand. He was always slow about editing. He had a rule that he wouldn't even look at an exposure for a year, so that emotion wouldn't cloud his judgment, but towards the end of his life he wasn't even doing that anymore. He just let his rolls pile up in trash cans and in the fridge.


When he died, of gallbladder cancer in 1984, he left behind more than half a million exposures. Most of them were unedited. Most of them he had never even looked at. Winogrand had always been prolific—but this was something else: three hundred thousand pictures (at a minimum), barely sorted, unorganized, with no indication of why or when they were taken.
