Chef Alice Waters

Chef and Food Educator Alice Waters will be giving a talk at the IMA’s Tobias Theater next Tuesday. However, tickets sold out within weeks of posting the event online. For those unable to attend her talk, this post is for you. It will give you a glimpse into Waters’ work and how she seeks to inspire. I had the delight of speaking with her about her passion earlier this year: Interview with Alice Waters As published in the winter issue of the IMA’s Previews membership magazine Q. What culture

The Mata gallery. Photo: Bruno Magalhães. Sorry for the long silence, this visit to Brazil is far more absorbing than i expected. On Sunday, the organizers of arte.mov (the festival for mobile media art) took us for a school trip to the Instituto Cultural Inhotim. An hour drive away from Belo Horizonte, Inhotim is a contemporary art museum, made of pavilions and installations spread over a lush botanical garden. By garden i mean 600 hectares of natural reserve and a Tropical Park, with 45

Olafur Eliasson Manolo Blahnik Paul Smith RCA Secret is one of the most unique art events in the U.K which promotes the work of up and coming artists.

All cards are sold in a one-day sale, with each card costing just £40 each. 2,700 art works

Stopping the music

Last July, I posted the intro to the most deliriously awful movie set in New York, 1980's "Can't Stop the Music" starring Steve Guttenberg, Bruce Jenner and the Village People. Well! I just got a little note from the folks at YouTube about the video... Harumpf! Still, there are other copyright enfringement videos that you can enjoy until the YouTune killjoys remove them... Like the intro to the arthouse hit Weekend at Bernie's! Or my exclusive video of Olafur Eliasson's waterfalls on t

This is a fairly short review, and it’s entirely my fault. I’d been saving writing about the relaunch of Icon magazine (not to be mistaken with the bling sleb magazine set up and run by ex-footballers). And then I’d been putting it off. And then I got distracted and oh look a badger. Now I see that they’re four issues into the redesign, and I’m somewhat out of date. It’s not easily obtainable on the American newsstands I frequent, so I shall make some sweeping statements about the redesig

Origami Tessellations

I long had a desire to make models of concentration camp huts by slicing a computer model up into hundreds of slices and printing each slice onto a layer of glass - then layering the glass to recreate the image. Eliasson has done the groundwork for me.

O RCA Secret não é somente uma exposição e sim um grande evento de arte para arrecadar fundos para os estudantes de arte do Royal College. O evento convida artistas conhecidos e estudantes de arte para produzirem uma obra de arte. As regras são bem simples: a arte deve ser feita num cartão-postal e a assinatura do artista tem que ficar atrás. A exposição abre hoje com 2.700 postais em que não é possível saber quem é o autor de cada trabalho. Entre os famosos tem Tracey Emin, Yoko Ono, Anish

Cristo’s Gates exhibit is said to have generated $254 million and 4 million visitors. Olafur Eliasson’s Waterfalls generated an estimated $69 million and about 1.4 million visitors. “Some experts question those numbers, saying they seem a little extreme. But the city says they involve a complex methodology.” (via.)

In London, Purchase a Postcard Worth 42,000 British Pounds Posted by Pam Kent in Local Customs, Something Different, Exhibits, London Leave a Comment Grayson Perry, 2004 Forty pounds might seem expensive for a postcard. But what if the postcard turns out to be an original work of art by the likes of Anish Kapoor, Yoko Ono, Olafur Eliasson, Tracey Emin, or Paula Rego?

Olafur Eliasson’s ‘Take Your Time’ at the DMA

Wed, 2008-11-12 00:15
Artist Olafur Eliasson brings his fun-house tour of visual delights to the Dallas Museum of Art this week, fulfilling expectations for a dazzling tour de force. The show officially opened on Sunday, but the artist flew into town for Tuesday morning’s press event and a public Artist Talk Wednesday night. Eliasson uses tools intrinsically associated with film and television (one piece even replicates the atmosphere of a film screening) to conduct walk-in science experiments predicated on the rela

Olafur Eliasson Comes to Town

Mon, 2008-11-10 22:25
Has it been a while since your mind was blown at a museum? If so, “Olafur Eliasson: Take Your Time” at the Dallas Museum of Art will likely change that. The exhibit of the Icelandic artist’s immersive, large-scale installations opened on Sunday, and a formal media preview takes place on Tuesday (you can expect lots of pictures from Art&Seek staffers). If you are one of those who has been scared to venture over to the DMA for fear of being trampled by Tut gawkers, this is as good a reason
