Art Dubai/Sharjah Biennial: Day 1

I’m off today for a 10 day trip to the mid-east to take part in the Sharjah Biennial. I’ll be documenting my travels in hope of giving everyone a sneak peak into the Biennial as well as Art Dubai which takes place over the same weekend. 

 

 

With a 6 hour layover at London Heathrow, I decided to do a bit of digging for images or videos about the Biennial but so far the above video is the only thing that i’ve uncovered. It doesn’t say much of anything about the Biennial itself so it will have to do until I actually land in Dubai.

Another great documentary to add to your Netflix queue. This time we go to Nazi Germany to see how Adolf Hitlers obsession with art drove him to attack and pillage some of the best museums and galleries of the world.

 

 

 

The Rape of Europa tells the epic story of the systematic theft, deliberate destruction and miraculous survival of Europe’s art treasures during the Third Reich and World War II.

Letha Wilson: Reclaim Drywall!

 

 

Fountain is a sculpture made by Letha Wilson using drywall and wood reclaimed from art gallery walls, and an artist’s studio walls. In this piece the form of a classical water fountain is invoked, typically present in a garden or entryway as a symbol of the utopian ideal. Walls and building materials previously used to house artworks, complete with paint stains and remnants of their past life, are re-newed into this functional water fountain. The drywall materials will gradually deteriorate away over the course of the exhibition as the paper and rock-based materials are worn down by constantly moving water.

A Man Named Pearl

I’ve been an avid documentary film watcher for many years now. My favorite documentaries are obscure stories about everyday people doing extraordinary things.  I always get excited to share these documentaries with friends but before I know it I forget the title. So in the spirit of archiving my findings I am creating a new category dedicated strictly to documentaries.  Below is one of my most recent finds. 

 

A Man Named Pearl tells the inspiring story of self-taught topiary artist Pearl Fryar, whose unlikely journey to national prominence began with a bigoted remark.
