JR Graffiti Wall Artwork Patched Up

JR Graffiti Wall Artwork Patched Up | images in context | Scoop.it
Last Thursday afternoon, French artist JR took to the Tony Goldman graffiti wall to make his mark. His new Native American-themed wheat-paste mural lasted but a few days before hooligans scraped away some of the paneling, revealing the Kenny Scarf predecessor. Unlike previous commissioned artwork onsite, the current piece is not painted. Meaning a much more limited street life.

The Art of the Factory

The Art of the Factory | images in context | Scoop.it
For his new project, Err, artist Jeremy Hutchison contacted various factories around the world, and asked if one of their workers would produce an 'incorrect' version of the product they make every day: in doing so, the functional objects became artworks.

"I asked them to make me one of their products, but to make it with an error," Hutchison explains. "I specified that this error should render the object dysfunctional. And rather than my choosing the error, I wanted the factory worker who made it to choose what error to make. Whatever this worker chose to do, I would accept and pay for."

normally you go to a museum in the middle of the afternoon and there are a few people walking slowly and seriously, considering the gravity of the work in front of them. this installation consisted of people taking pictures of their kids while their kids ran around screaming through the museum filled with bright blue balloons. it was great.

"Vous êtes ailleurs" ou à l'Hôtel de Ville ?

Jusqu'au 15 juillet, un jardin éphémère verdit le parvis et prend la forme d'une curieuse anamorphose végétale en 3D réalisée par l’artiste François Abelanet.
This land art is an anamorphosis which is a distorted projection that comes to life when viewed at the proper angle. Stand to the side and you will see angular grass and dirt. Stand at the correct angle and the 3D image jumps out at you.

2011 VENICE BIENNALE: THE POWER AND THE GLORY

2011 VENICE BIENNALE: THE POWER AND THE GLORY | images in context | Scoop.it
One of my favorites was the main Egyptian exhibition (called a Pavilion in the parlance of the Biennale), where giant video screens juxtaposed videos of artist Ahmed Basiony’s installation piece Thirty Days of Running in Place with scenes of the recent massive street protests in which he was killed by the police. Yes, killed by the police. Not a stunt, actually killed, no getting up and walking away afterward. Egypt has in the past shown only traditional Egyptian art, and the decision to show Basiony’s work was made after the government was toppled by these protests. The text outside the pavilion includes his last facebook post –
