PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Robert Asman: Silver Mine is a retrospective exhibition of an exceptional photographic career characterized by idiosyncratic experimentation with the bounds of black and white photography. Robert Asman is one of the most important photographers of his generation. For most of the last thirty-five years Asman (Asheville, NC) has been devoted to investigating and stretching the conceptual and technical boundaries of silver prints, through extended, and related, explorations of the human figure and the urban landscape. His masterful manipulation of chemistry and paper negatives has resulted in a seemingly boundless and wondrous body of work. Asman approaches art making as a transformative process, in which he mines the physical properties of his materials to create a work on paper which are seemingly the result of alchemical change. Process and image are completely merged, and result in images ranging from the sublimely beautiful to the fetishized or the startlingly violent, though often conveying an ironic humor. The Print Centerpresents this exhibition at a critical moment for examining process driven work, as the integration of digital technologies into art making are causing artists to revisit traditional photographic processes.

Robert Asman was born in Washington, D.C. He received a BA from Catholic University, Washington, D.C. in 1973 and an MFA from the renowned photography program at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY in 1975. After a brief return to Washington, Asman lived for thirty years in Philadelphia were he taught photography at Moore College of Art & Design, Drexel University, University of the Arts and University of Pennsylvania, in addition to working as a fine art photographer and a running a commercial black and white printing lab. His career has been marked by several honors, including a Pew Fellowship in the Arts and a Fellowship from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. His work has been exhibited internationally in many solo and group exhibitions including at the ICA, Philadelphia; the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia; West Chester University, West Chester, PA; Galerie Paviot, Paris; National Museum of Art, Bucharest, Romania; Robert Klein Gallery, Boston, MA; Delaware Center for Contemporary Art, Wilmington, DE; Paul Cava Gallery, Philadelphia; and The Print Center. Asman’s work is found in numerous permanent collections, including Arcadia University, Glenside, PA; Haverford College, Haverford, PA; Free Library of Philadelphia; George Eastman House, Rochester, NY; Houston Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C. and The State Museum of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg, PA.

The exhibition is curated by Elizabeth Spungen, the Executive Director of The Print Center. In her five year tenure at The Print Center, Spungen has also curated exhibitions of the work of Doug and Mike Starn (2007) and Masao Yamamoto (2008).

Unesp organiza exposição de arte sobre Direitos Humanos

Unesp organiza exposição de arte sobre Direitos Humanos

Internautas podem votar no trabalho que mais gostarem

         A versão popular da Declaração Universal dos Direitos Humanos do Frei Betto é o ponto de partida para que 25 artistas plásticos realizem obras sobre diversas questões sociais e políticas que envolvem a cidadania e seus desafios sociais e políticos. Os trabalhos formam a exposição A Arte dos Direitos Humanos, que fica no Hall da Reitoria da Unesp, em São Paulo, de 9 a 23 de janeiro. As imagens dos trabalhos também estarão disponíveis, a partir do dia 9, no endereço:

         As 25 obras foram realizadas na mais variadas técnicas, como óleo, acrílica, intervenção sobre fotografia, colagem e de ovelha. O público pode, pela internet, votar na sua obra preferida. O criador do trabalho escolhido receberá um livro de arte, e, entre todos os votantes, haverá um sorteio de um outro exemplar na área de artes plásticas. Cada voto de cada e-mail será computado apenas uma vez para a escolha do artista e para o sorteio. 

         “O objetivo da exposição é levar o público a refletir sobre os direitos humanos. Para isso, cada artista trabalhou com um deles das maneiras mais variadas possíveis. Temos desde ilustrações mais literais das frases concebidas pelo Frei Betto a interpretações mais complexas e abstratas”, diz Oscar D’Ambrosio, curador da exposição.

         Os trabalhos foram doados pelos artistas à Unesp com o objetivo de que a exposição realize uma itinerância não apenas pelas 33 unidades da Universidade, mas também por cidades onde a instituição não tem Câmpus ou locais que desejem promover a cidadania por meio do diálogo entre diversas facetas do mundo contemporâneo e as artes visuais.

Woman damages painting worth more than $30M at Denver's new Clyfford Still Museum

By: Steven K. Paulson, Associated Press
DENVER (AP).- Investigators are trying to determine why a woman caused $10,000 worth of damage to a large expressionist painting at the Clyfford Still Museum by punching and scratching it, then removing her pants and sliding down the artwork.

Carmen Tisch, 36, faces charges of criminal mischief in the Dec. 29 attack on the painting, said district attorney spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough.

The painting, referred to as 1957-J-No. 2, is valued at more than $30 million. The large montage of black, white and burnt orange swaths with a sliver of yellow is from Still's middle period.

Museum officials said they believe security is adequate for the facility and that they regularly evaluate security to protect the collection and visitors. Museum spokeswoman Regan Petersen said in a statement that its guards "acted swiftly and appropriately; the police were summoned immediately and the offender was taken into custody."

Denver acquired the collection in stiff competition by promising to build a facility for the paintings and sculptures. Still, who died in 1980, specified in his will that his estate had to go to an American city willing to establish a permanent museum for his work. He was one of the first abstract expressionist artists following World War II.

The museum has raised $32 million in private donations for its building, endowment and operations, Petersen said. The city of Denver also contributed about $99 million from an auction of four Still works.

Visitors touring the gallery Thursday said they were horrified by the attack. Rachel Gelbman and Christine Shaw, of Denver, said they had seen the painting at the Denver Art Museum and noticed it was missing, replaced by a similar painting from the 1956-1958 era.

To them, it wasn't the same.

"What would possess someone to do that?" Gelbman said as security guards roamed the building.

In 2010, a Montana woman was accused of taking a crowbar to a Loveland art museum display that critics denounced as obscene. Critics said it showed Jesus Christ engaged in a sex act; The artist, Stanford University professor Enrique Chagoya, said the work represented what he saw as corruption in religious institutions. Kathleen Folden was accused of damaging the print.

Tisch remained held on $20,000 bond. Court records did not indicate if she had an attorney, and no phone listing was available.

At the museum, on the wall near where Still's painting once stood, Still summed up his philosophy of art: "I never wanted color to be color, texture to be texture, images to become images. I wanted them all to fuse into a living spirit."

Acontece no MuBE - janeiro 2012



Cine Clube MuBE - Programação Christian Petermann
Sábado – a partir de 14 de janeiro

Os Esquecidos dos Anos 1980 – A Década Ignorada

A mostra pretende, com a exibição de sete longas-metragens realizados no eixo Rio de Janeiro-São Paulo, resgatar diferentes tipos de produção audiovisual que caracterizaram os anos 1980, um período de lenta abertura política no cenário nacional e crescente decadência da imagem do cinema brasileiro junto ao espectador médio, com a crise da Embrafilme e a invasão da pornografia no circuito de salas populares. Com isto, muitos teóricos e estudiosos consideram a década de 1980 de “segunda categoria”, um período a ser desconsiderado. O CineClube MuBE exibe, em boas cópias digitais do catálogo da Programadora Brasil, sete filmes relevantes concluídos à época, dentro de seus ditames estéticos próprios e na conjuntura estrutural disponível. Alguns destes são praticamente desconhecidos das novas gerações – filmes menos lembrados e/ou ref(v)erenciados dos 80s, todos injustamente.
Foi também a década em que a cinefilia deste que é o programador do CineClube se tornou séria e em que este começou a trabalhar como crítico de cinema, assistindo a muitos destes filmes quando de sua estreia. A maioria não repercutiu como merecia e teve retorno aquém de suas qualidades. Pretende-se com a mostra discutir um pouco essa injustiça histórica e resgatar a lembrança dessas produções com uma série de debates posteriores à exibição dos filmes, com (seis) convidados ainda a definir e sem debate no sábado de Carnaval, dia 18 de fevereiro, pós-exibição de As Sete Vampiras.

Andrzej Sobiepan, Polish Art Student, Hangs Own Painting In Museum


MONIKA SCISLOWSKA   01/ 4/12 10:02 AM ET   AP

WARSAW, Poland — Art student Andrzej Sobiepan didn't want to wait decades for his work to appear in museums. So he took matters in his own hands, covertly hanging one of his paintings in a major Polish gallery.
By Wednesday, the young artist was getting plenty of attention after a nationwide TV channel reported on his stunt at the National Museum in the southwestern city of Wroclaw. He told reporters he hoped galleries would give more exhibition space to young artists as a result.
"I decided that I will not wait 30 or 40 years for my works to appear at a place like this," Sobiepan told TVN24. "I want to benefit from them in the here and now."
Sobiepan, a Wroclaw Fine Arts Academy student whose last name means "his own master," said he was inspired by the elusive British graffiti artist known only as Banksy. His own painting is small, white and green, and partly uses swine leather to show a drooping acacia leaf.
On Dec. 10, Sobiepan put it up in a room with contemporary Polish art when a guard at the museum was looking the other way. Museum officials didn't notice the new painting for three days.
Museum director Mariusz Hermansdorfer told TVN24 on Wednesday that the action revealed some security breaches, but that he also considered it a "witty artistic happening."
"It has shown that the young generation of artists, unlike their predecessors, wants to see their works in museums," Hermansdorfer said.
The museum has kept the painting on display – in its cafe. It will be offered for sale at Poland's biggest charity auction on Sunday.
