Olek: Becoming One’s Art for “The End Is Far”

Olek: Becoming One’s Art for “The End Is Far” | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

For Olek, the past year has seen endless legal battles in London, which led to a brief incarceration and house arrest. During this time, it must have seemed as if a long road was ahead of her. The majority of the work on display at her recently opened show at Jonathan Levine Gallery was made during this time in London, when the end was indeed far. However, don’t let the image of Olek crocheting away in a cell paint a disparate image of the installations that the artist created during this time in her life. The spectacle that one has come to expect from energetic and vibrant artist has only intensified. The speakers have been turned up to 11, if you will.

The Photographer Reveals the Philosophy, Techniques & Artistry of Edward Weston (1948)

The Photographer Reveals the Philosophy, Techniques & Artistry of Edward Weston (1948) | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

He’s been gone 65 years, but the American West we see in our mind’s eye still owes much to Edward Weston‘s photographic eye. Yet because he worked in more or less every one of the known forms of his day — portrait, landscape, still-life, scenes in a variety of tones, and beyond — we tend to think we know Weston’s work when we’ve only seen a fraction of it. You can get a sense of the scope of his career by watching The Photographer above. Produced in 1948, the final year of Weston’s career, the half-hour documentary can thus examine nearly his entire body of work.

What We Wore - A history of fashion from 1720 to 1982 | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

This unusual collection of programmes reveals what it took to be stylish through over 250 years of British history as it explores fashion from 1720 to 1982.

 

Included here is the first colour series made by the BBC. Pre-dating colour TV by a decade, this is the first time it has been available to view as it was intended. It also features some surprising live models.
