THE KID : The Future is Old starting this Thursday in MOCO Museum

Art MOCO Museum will premiere the first solo exhibition in The Netherlands of International contemporary artist THE KID. Where contemporary art enlightens humanism in the social crisis and democratic decay of our 21stcentury!     An exhibition that will push boundaries, wake up humanity and shake up Museum Square in Amsterdam. MOCO Museum spotlights Internationalcontemporary artistTHE KIDfor its upcoming November exhibition. MOCO and THE KID co-curate the artist's first solo show in the Netherlands - The Future is Old.     “The Future is Old”   Mass shooting / Individualistic indifference / Institutionalized racism / Social determinism / Inequality of Opportunity / Ever-threatened civil rights (…)Does the current state of the broken American dream exemplify where too many of our democracies are heading for today, and many more in the very near future?Is history repeating itself? Will youth stand up and say no to a future that looksalready old?   Youthful portraits attract visitors with beauty and the perception of a bright future. However, on close examination, cuts and bruises reveal a darker side of reality. THE KID uses art as a means to make us question the notions of power and privilege and more generally the current evolution of humanism in our democratic societies.    THE KID’s hyper realistic bigger-than-life portraits and life-size sculptures confront the audience with deeply personal stories that expose the injustice in America and beyond in many democracies around the world today and make us question the current evolution of mankind’s History. The socially critical exhibition intends to open up our minds - ultimately, enlightening a more compassionate, understanding world.    THE KID started to work on his series of oil paintings and life-size sculptures The Future Is Oldas of the end of the year 2017. This series of art works was sparked by the strong impression made on THE KID by the Summer 2017 events in Charlottesville-USA where civil right counter protesters were violently attacked by American nationalists and white supremacists opposing the project of the municipality to take down the equestrian statue of General Robert E Lee, a leading figure of the Confederates and an historical defender of Afro-American slavery.     THE KID questions how the recent and current social and political history seems to repeat itself in too many countries and the stance today’s youth will decide to take, inspired by Martin Luther King and the words of his wife and famous civil rights activist Coretta Scott King: “Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation”.     “THE KID: The Future is Old” is why MOCO Museum believes art can do more. The realistic appearances of gripping details of violence - bloody noses, busted lips, scars and scratches, gang tattoos, wounds, and other graphic images and historical role models - summon crucial social subject matters catching our attention and asking for immediate action from each one of us.      About contemporary artist THE KID:   Already internationally recognized for his thought-provoking and socially committed body of art works, THE KID is a natural born citizen of the world and a self-educated multidisciplinary contemporary artist, who hijacks traditional technics of the old European Masters -drawing, painting and sculpture- to question the social issues facing contemporary youth today and even more tomorrow in our polarized world of the 21st century, such as the social determinism, the ever-threatened civil rights, the inequality of opportunity or the thin frontier between innocence and corruption for today’s youth. When asked about his work THE KID likes to underline his exceptional body of works with the famous words of the great 20thcentury Master Picasso: “Art is not made to decorate apartments, it is an offensive and defensive weapon of war against the enemy”.     Photos: Courtesy Studio THE KID (all rights reserved).

Jarno Kooijman opens second gallery, Fundamente, in Het Industriegebouw

Jarno Kooijman opens second gallery, Fundamente, in Het Industriegebouw

Design Jarno Kooijman - known from Gallery Jarno Kooijman in Rotterdam North - specializes in 20th Century Design & Art. Exactly ten years after the opening of the high-end gallery that bears his name, Kooijman now opens a second gallery, Fundamente. This gallery, located in the iconic Industriegebouw in Rotterdam, serves a wider audience with design furniture from the 20th century.     During his many trips through Europe, Kooijman increasingly encountered special pieces that did not exactly fit the concept of the existing gallery. In addition, he noticed an increasing interest in 20th Century Design over the past two years, which he could not serve with the specific collection of his gallery alone. Especially from a younger target group, very active on social media and with taste and knowledge in search of iconic design furniture from the last century. With the establishment of Fundamente, Kooijman starts a new concept that fits better with this broader collection.      Fundamente: for young design enthusiasts to advanced connoisseurs:   Jarno Kooijman: "Our target group ranges from the young design lover to the advanced connoisseur. All pieces are purchased based on character and feeling. We are in daily contact with our international network to find distinctive pieces of the best quality. We highlight multiple styles, from Scandinavian design to small-scale French atelier-made pieces, as well as Italian or South American influences. With this wide selection - curated according to our taste, experience and intuition - we want to add something to the perception of people. "   "Fundamente could also have remained just a webshop, but we wanted to create a place where the furniture can be admired and touched. In my opinion, Rotterdam lacked a similar location where people from a wide area could come to get inspired. Het Industriegebouw is known in Rotterdam and beyond, and fits well with Fundamente in terms of architecture, vision and culture. It’s a place with a timeless character. Neighbors like Héroine, Containr Affairs, Old Scuola and MVRDV make the location extra appealing, they are also part of how you experience the building and the area. "     Het Industriegebouw: an icon of the reconstruction, now filled with showpieces from the same era.   Eva Sharo, one of the directors of Het Industriegebouw: “Fundamente in Het Industriegebouw is a perfect match; an icon of the reconstruction, now filled with showpieces from the same time. Timing is also important; we are asked to spend more time at home, where a pleasant experience is important. Concepts such as reuse and slow-living are becoming more and more important. The surprising combination of affordable pieces and wish-list items makes Fundamente accessible to a wide audience of design enthusiasts. Jarno's enthusiasm is also infectious and acts as a catalyst within the building. ”     Het Industriegebouw was realized in post-war Rotterdam and designed by Hugh Maaskant, in collaboration with Willem van Tijen. Het Industriegebouw was built by order of the Municipality of Rotterdam, making it one of the first multi-company buildings in the Netherlands. In 2015, the 22,000 m2 national monument was practically empty. The idea to restore this icon of Rotterdam's reconstruction to its original state and function was born.

CAO FEI UNVEILS HER LATEST ARTWORK, ISLE OF INSTABILITY, COMMISSIONED BY AUDEMARS PIGUET CONTEMPORARY AT WEST BUND ART & DESIGN

CAO FEI UNVEILS HER LATEST ARTWORK, ISLE OF INSTABILITY, COMMISSIONED BY AUDEMARS PIGUET CONTEMPORARY AT WEST BUND ART & DESIGN

Art Cao Fei’s latest artwork—a multi-media installation commissioned by Audemars Piguet Contemporary—premieres in Shanghai this week, at West Bund Art & Design, where it is on view to the public for the duration of the fair (11– 15 November). The piece, titled Isle of Instability, is the artist’s first large-scale installation to be exhibited since the start of the pandemic and responds at a personal level to the artist's time living in isolation with her family in Singapore, precipitated by Covid-19.     Cao Fei has risen to global renown in the past two decades. Her practice includes film, digital media, photography, sculpture, installation, drawing and performance and captures her fascination with humanity and a response to the rapid technological developments experienced this century. The artist deals with themes of anticipation and questions the possible collapse of our future while proposing an escape, or a solution, through the potential of humanity: its dreams, imagination, creativity and the individual in relation to the collective.     Audemars Piguet Contemporary was engaged in developing a Studio Audemars Piguet artwork with Cao Fei well before the onset of Covid-19. In October 2019, Cao Fei visited the home of the brand, in Le Brassus, Switzerland, to finalise plans for the initial artwork. As worldwide cases of the virus grew, Cao Fei and her family found themselves in Singapore unable to return to their home in Beijing due to international travel restrictions. Together, Cao Fei and the Audemars Piguet Contemporary team agreed on a new subject matter for the art commission.     Isle of Instability was imagined and produced in the artist’s apartment in Singapore, which became amakeshift studio during the ten months that she lived there with her family, away from her home, studio and day-to-day habits in Beijing. Reminiscent of the artist’s early low-tech DIY artworks, the multi- media installation is based on a documentary study conducted by the artist during quarantine. Itexplores the psychological and physical implications that lockdown had on the artist, her family and humanity.     Isle of Instability comprises a two-room installation that visitors can walk through and experience at their own pace. The visitor first enters a room which resembles a commercial art gallery. Humour is imbued into the space, which presents minimalist objects that were collected during the artist’s time inquarantine as objets d’art, including plastic bags for the family’s subsistence, bread tags, bottles of sanitiser, toilet paper rolls and airplane tickets from their eventual return trip to China. The second room—a home setting—presents viewers with a replica of the artist and her family’s immediatesurroundings during quarantine, including photography, texts and drawings related to her experience of the global pandemic and the new habits she formed along the way. Two video installations are shown here. Lighthouse presents visitors with the views that Cao Fei saw from the balcony of her apartment, a lighthouse in a city far from home and normality. Outlying Island, explores the idea of escapism in a new reality through an “island” which the artist constructed for her daughter (who assisted throughout the development of the artwork) in the middle of their living room.     Through the mix of public and private, echoing both the nearby art fair booths and the privacy of one’shome, Isle of Instability explores the synergy and conflict that lies between these two realms. The artwork is presented at a time when the notion of the indoor and the outdoor, the private and the public, is being reimagined on a global scale. It addresses the question of how one can continue to exist in spite of limitations caused by the global pandemic. By proposing a shared experience via her own personal testimony, Cao Fei offers solace to the visiting public and the opportunity to converse about the ways in which humanity deals with uncertainty.

BVLGARI ROMA: TRAVEL TALES FOR BEAUTY LOVERS

Art Since the house’s founding in 1884, the majestic beauty of Rome with its archaeological, artistic, and cultural heritage has provided Bvlgari, one of its most storied purveyors of luxury and style, with an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Bvlgari’s deep roots in Rome has yielded Bvlgari Roma: Travel Tales for Beauty Lovers, a one-of-a-kind guide to the Eternal City that cleverly connects the city’s landmarks with the timeless Bvlgari designs that they have inspired.   For example, the design of the iconic B-zero1 ring was inspired by the Colosseum, the ultimate symbol of the city, and likewise the recurrent octagonal geometries watch dial refers to the coffered ceiling of the Basilica of Maxentius. As editor and artistic director Jan Králiĉek states in the Preface, “You will understand how and why the curves of a building are mirrored in a necklace, and how the detail of a mythical painting unfolds into the story of an iconic bracelet or how the dyadic character of a building can be reflected in something as intimate and subtle as a ring. ”This portable volume takes the reader on an unprecedented historical, artistic, and emotional tour of the city. In addition to an actual guide to landmarks and monuments, the narration is enriched by short stories by some of the best-known Roman authors from the world of contemporary Italian literature, inspired by the most iconic locations in the city.

PALOMA FAITH  RELEASES ‘GOLD’

PALOMA FAITH RELEASES ‘GOLD’

Music Ahead of the release of her fifth studio album Infinite Things, Paloma Faith today shares the latest single and video from the project ‘Gold’ - out now via RCA Records.    For the music video I was about 2.5 months pregnant and it was a heatwave of 38 degrees.... I still hadn’t told anyone I was pregnant so I had to pretend it was all fine, which would have been ok... if I wasn’t hanging off a giant yellow digger! It was physically demanding but the people who worked on the video and the other dancers were joyous and kept me so buoyant I didn’t realise until I got home I was shattered!” - Paloma   Stream the track here: https://smarturl.it/GoldPF   A slice of powerful pop perfection, ‘Gold’ is a glittering dedication to self-belief. Reflecting Paloma’s renewed positive outlook, the single provides the perfect escape from everyday woes. ‘Gold’ also arrives today with a riotous video filmed in Hackney. Clad in gold boxer-shorts, a voluminous pink ball-gown and biker boots accessorized with a giant pair of bolt cutters, Paloma looks dressed to dominate in the fiery video. ‘Gold’ follows the singer, a choir and a host of dancers using an abandoned building-site as their stage for a dramatic performance of the single. Filmed whilst she was in the early stages of her pregnancy, Paloma performed all of her own stunts for the video.    Speaking of the making of ‘Gold’, Paloma said: “‘Gold’ is the only song on the album which wasn’t recorded in my basement. It was recorded at Steve Mac’s studio, who penned the song with the wonderful Sigrid. As a result it embodies freedom and joy and a celebration of life, perfect escapism for a time when we need to remember we are free spirits. ‘Gold’ is a song about how the spirit conquers everything and whatever you are going through your true virtues are inside you. For the music video I was about 2.5 months pregnant and it was a heatwave of 38 degrees.... I still hadn’t told anyone I was pregnant so I had to pretend it was all fine, which would have been ok... if I wasn’t hanging off a giant yellow digger! It was physically demanding but the people who worked on the video and the other dancers were joyous and kept me so buoyant I didn’t realise until I got home I was shattered!”   Infinite Things saw Paloma work with a small group of long-time and new collaborators including the producers Patrick Wimberly and Detonate, songwriters Ed Harcourt, Starsmith, Tre Jean Marie alongside the producer and songwriter MNEK and friend Josef Salvat. This record is more than an album about relationships. It’s a rumination on sickness and loss. It’s about finding your way back to romance within a long term relationship. It’s her most confident record yet from a female artist who’s been in the game for two decades.   Talking about Infinite Things Paloma said: “I'm trying to relinquish the expectation, that a lot of people are raised with, that the only good life is a happy one. I don't think that's realistic. It's about the peaks and troughs because if you didn't have one you wouldn't recognise the other."   ‘Gold’ marks the latest unveiling from Infinite Things following ‘Last Night On Earth’, ‘Falling Down’, and the poignant ‘Better Than This’. Arriving accompanied by a video directed by David Wilson, ‘Better Than This’ continued to showcase Paloma’s evolution as an artist. The visual laid Paloma against a backdrop of vignettes of human error which historically continuously repeat. The video saw her shine a light on prevalent issues including climate emergency, police brutality, race and class divide and the injustices of war.    2021 will also see Paloma hitting the road again for a huge 26 date UK tour including two nights at London’s iconic Palladium. Full dates below & more info here.   This is a new Paloma Faith, an artist who has retreated within herself and found not the careful, polished veteran of show business - but the 22-year-old art student being led by her own creativity.   Catch Paloma live when she embarks on her UK 2021 tour next September.

Retrospective exhibition Giuseppe Penone postponed

Art The retrospective exhibition of the Italian artist Giuseppe Penone (1947) is postponed to a later date that is still to be determined. The exhibition was originally planned from 28 November 2020 to 5 April 2021. The decision has been made in close consultation with the artist and is the result of the new measures - announced by the Dutch government on 28 September 2020 - and uncertainties surrounding the corona virus. Due to the postponement, the planned press preview on 26 November 2020 will also not take place."We were delighted to show Giuseppe Penone's work at Voorlinden," explains director Suzanne Swarts. "His work is true poetry and stimulates all our senses. Particularly in the present time of being at a distance, in which our relation with nature is under pressure, we would have loved to show his work. Now that our mobility is limited, we are waiting for the right moment to share his art with a large audience."   Giuseppe Penone and Voorlinden: For Giuseppe Penone, nature - and trees in particular - is both subject and material. In his sculptures, installations and drawings he uses tree trunks, leaves, marble and leather. With his poetic oeuvre he shows us our intimate connection with nature, and he makes us aware of its creative and transforming cycle and forces. The exhibition includes both early and recent work and stimulates all your senses. Iconic sculptures and immersive art installations alternate with works of a modest and intimate format. Voorlinden has been following Giuseppe's work for a long time. In the 1990s, his bronze sculpture Biforcazione(1991) became part of the Clingenbosch sculpture garden. Giuseppe's work emphasizes and reinforces Voorlinden's relationship between art and nature. Surrounded by his oeuvre you feel closer to nature than ever.
