The 'Underground' Arts Scene

Burlesque-performer--perf-012

The Guardian:


Before the digital revolution, experimental subcultures were far more hidden from view. Today they’re more accessible than ever – with consequences for artists and audiences

...

The internet has been wonderful for liberating alternative art forms and under-represented artists and their audiences from the gatekeepers of culture. But the problem with the internet is that the underground arts scene – that safe space where risk, dissent and difference are possible – is now only a click away. I’m curious about why these people clicked on those events and whether they asked themselves if what they had found really was for them. And if they did, what on earth were they thinking by attending if it wasn’t?

BRICE: That's what I said at that symposium to Yve-Alain Bois: "You've got to avoid the cheap shot." He said, "What's the cheap shot?" I said, "That thing that's a little too easy to do. You've got to avoid that."

Szymon Rogiński for The National Old Theatre in Cracow

LAF:

National Old Theatre in Cracow reactivates great tradition of posters being separate piece of art.
Painters: Bartek Materka and Marcin Maciejowski and as only photographer in this team so far- SZYMON ROGIŃSKI, were invited to create their artistic vision for the plays staged in this season.
Have a look at Szymon’s work: King Lear, played by Jerzy Grałek, dir. by Jan Klata.

To be seen now, all around Cracow and probably at the special exhibition of all posters from the project in future.
We will keep you updated!!!

The Louis Vuitton Foundation Museum by Frank Gehry

NY Times:


The Louis Vuitton Foundation's museum near the Bois de Boulogne in Paris. Designed by Frank Gehry, it opens on Oct. 27.

...

The center, on Paris’s western edge, is one of several private museums for contemporary art opening around the world in coming months at the behest of wealthy private patrons. Among them are Renzo Piano’s Centro Botín in Santander, Spain, commissioned by the banking magnate Emilio Botín, who died last month, and a museum planned by the financier and philanthropist Eli Broad in Los Angeles that is designed by Diller Scofidio & Renfro.

“Maybe now states are less powerful than before,” Jean-Paul Claverie, an adviser to Mr. Arnault, said of the trend.  “And all the entrepreneurs are conscious of their place in society and have the means to realize it.”
