Pictorialism and the Photograph as Art, 1845-1945


February 2 - April 27


Elias Goldensky
[Portrait of three women], c. 1915
platinum print
George Eastman House Collection, Gift of 3m Company, Ex-collection Louis Walton Sipley


Really lovely , atmospheric exhibition on the movement of Pictorialism @ the Vancouver Art Gallery
The focus is photography but there is a room with a few vintage posters

I was just there
Was amazed there were photographs taken on heavy watercolour paper
I was jotting some notes down too
like some of the artists would mix a photosensitive chemical with watercolour pigment and gum arabic... so when their photos developed, they could alter it with water and a paintbrush (since watercolour is not permanent) --and it gave this hazy effect

They also have two books
Unfortunately there were no other materials related to the exhibition at the gallery store ... The only postcard was a portrait of Aubrey Beardsley

will be an interest to fashionistas too.. if you like this time period

Arbiters of Style: Women at the Forefront of Fashion
May 21 to November 8, 2008

Arbiters of Style: Women at the Forefront of Fashion celebrates an array of female creators, promoters and clientele who have shaped the course of fashion. This fashion exhibition features work by female designers as well as clothing and accessories worn by female department store executives, influential clients, magazine editors, muses and models. Women have played a significant role in the history of fashion and they continue to be a driving force as tastemakers and industry leaders.

Featuring over seventy looks from the Museum’s permanent collection, Arbiters of Style includes designs by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, Sonia Delaunay, Jeanne Lanvin, and Claire McCardell and features clothing worn by influential women such as Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, photographer Louise Dahl Wolf, and actresses Lauren Bacall and Rosalind Russell. The historical importance of these women and many others will be revealed in the display of garments from the eighteenth century to the present.

Arbiters of Style: Women at the Forefront of Fashion is organized by Molly Sorkin and Colleen Hill, along with Fred Dennis, Clare Sauro, Harumi Hotta and Lynn Weidner.

Elena Manferdini: Merletti
03.28.08 - 05.11.08

Elena Manferdini’s installation explores the intricacies of lace at a scale far beyond the intimate size commonly associated with the material. Made by the knotting and intertwining of multiple threads, the dynamic dance of lacemaking is brought to the scale of the SCI-Arc Gallery. The antique Venetian Merletti, the Italian term for lace, are the crenellations that create a complex interface at the top of defensive buildings.

This technique became an inspiration to Manferdini, the Los Angeles-based Italian architect; her project, which weaves itself along catenary supporting wires hung from above, engages the viewer at an intimate scale as the installation billows up through the space. Walking in the gallery, the viewer can appreciate the detail of each element that constitutes the overall form and the shadows cast on the floor. But the work best reveals itself—a surface that alternates between the two- and the three-dimensional—from the view from the catwalk above the Gallery, where the viewer is able to appreciate the entire interwoven, lace-like structure.

Script
Fashion and interiors, from salon to house

Through 3 aug 2008

Presenting masterpieces from the history of fashion and interiors, the passage of time is central to the visitor’s experience of the new display ‘Script’. Historical dresses, cabinets and sofas as well as modern furniture by Gerrit Rietveld and contemporary fashion by designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood* are combined within a continuous filmic experience. Costume dramas from the last twenty years are the inspiration for film-sets displays, resulting in a new interpretation of Utrecht’s famous period rooms.

Fashion, film and interior
The fashion industry emerged in the late eighteenth century when the wealthy paraded their finery on the boulevards, at the opera and in the shopping galleries, thus demonstrating that they were à la mode. Wearing the most up-to-date fashions is still an important form of communication today in semi-public places such as restaurants, terraces and nightclubs. The fashions and interiors of a particular period are often related in terms of trends in colour, form and production techniques. Films, and now video games, can initiate or reinforce such trends.

From ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ to ‘Blade Runner’
In the films that are the starting point for ‘Script’, furniture and fashion represent important historical and cultural developments. In ‘Sense and Sensibility’ the interiors and costumes reflect the idealisation of simple rural existence versus depraved city life. Dziga Vertov’s 1929 film ‘Man with a Movie Camera’ is the cinematographic equivalent of Gerrit Rietveld’s 1924 Rietveld Schröder House. Not ‘nature’ but ‘culture’ was the rallying cry. There was a belief in the ability to shape the future. Within ‘Script’ highlights from the museum’s Rietveld collection are placed within an extraordinary modernistic environment. This Rietveld set is a sort of ‘sentinel’ – looking back at the past and ahead towards the future. It is remarkable that this future recycles so many aspects of the past. The science-fiction film ‘Blade Runner’ fused many historical styles and had a great influence on the cyber-punk look that was such a feature of 80s and 90s nightlife. The architecture of the dance scene in the film ‘Basic Instinct’ is employed to bring these influences together.

Everyone is a film star!
At the Centraal Museum everyone is a film star! ‘Script’ not only situates highlights from the collection within film sets, it also invites the visitor to step inside various sets and be photographed (no flash). Visitors can assume a role in: ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ (Stephen Frears, 1988), ‘Sense and Sensibility’ (Ang Lee, 1995), ‘Young Mr. Lincoln’ (John Ford, 1939), ‘Madame Bovary’ (Claude Chabrol, 1991), Monsieur Proust (Raul Ruiz 1999), ‘The Age of Innocence’ (Martin Scorsese, 1993), ‘India Song’ (Marguerite Duras, 1975), Gosford Park (Robert Altman 2001), ‘Man with a Movie Camera’ (Dziga Vertov, 1929), ‘Basic Instinct’ (Paul Verhoeven, 1992), ‘Blade Runner’ (Ridley Scott, 1982) and the computer game ‘Myst’ (Robyn and Rand Miller, 1993).

Script is designed by Concern/GillianSchrofer and Darlaine Heitinga

* Names subject to confirmation. Because of the conservation requirements of certain fragile costumes, the fashion exhibits in ‘Script’ will change every three months.

Quote:

Eight years into the new millennium and the question arises: where are we headed, now that we live in the century once hailed as the future? This question is the springboard and theme for our third exhibition, starting on the first anniversary of 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT’s opening in 2007.

The "XXIst Century" in the exhibition title refers of course to the 21st century, and by "Man", to those of us living here, now. The title also expresses a desire to place our hope in the future.

In this show, we will focus on the 21st century and its people as a means by which to explore ideas for building a better future for this century and beyond. Exhibition director Issey Miyake has done extensive research to prepare for the show, which includes a wide spectrum of Japanese and international creators, all of whom address today's many doubts and insecurities through their own individual form of creative expression.

Quote:

This will be the first exhibition in the true sense for Koutarou Sekiguchi (b. 1983), who juggles his art with the teaching at a special needs school. Using two everyday materials, newspaper and masking tape, Sekiguchi builds giant towers that measure up to 7m high. His work, which takes on various forms including those of people, plants and animals, plus a variety of manmade objects, is suffused with a spiritual, temple-like power, and a celebratory energy.
