The Calder Foundation announced the permanent installation of Calder’s 1974 monumental standing mobile Horizontal in front of the Centre Pompidou’s iconic façade. The placement of the sculpture on the museum’s beloved plaza was determined in accordance with architect Renzo Piano.
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.
See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception is the first book to survey the fascinating relationship between design, the body, science and the senses.

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.

If you're Shea Hembrey, you invent all of the artists and artwork yourself -- from large-scale outdoor installations to tiny paintings drawn with a single-haired brush.

It’s true. The state of Utah now owns Spiral Jetty. For the last decade, the Dia Foundation has paid Utah’s Department of Natural Resources $250 a year to maintain the 20-year lease on the land surrounding the earthwork.
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. http://gizmodo.com/5818835/how-a-parisian-artist-created-this-stunning-optical-illusion

This is the water tower on top of the Wyman building in downtown Minneapolis. Carmichael Lynch, the ad agency where I work, occupies the top 4 floors of the building. Several months back I was asked to come up with some concepts for the water tower.
The vast, shadowy spaces of the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern are a surprisingly effective setting for dance. Choreographers as varied as William Forsythe, Merce Cunningham and Trisha Brown have all transformed its echoing vaults into stages for memorable encounters.
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 –
