    This summer are some "must seen" exhibition (or festivals) :
    Venice Bienal
    Documenta Kasel
    Münster SkulpturProjekt...

    If you are lucky enough to live next : GO... this is the most incredible contemporary art events....for this summer!!!!
    the 12th Documenta seems to be amazing!!!!!!!!!
    I would love to go... but nobody wants to come with me....and it's not very next to my home....
    But I will do for sure the Lyon Bienal this year (from sept. 2007 to jan. 2008 in Lyon, France) and the Printemps de Septembre, Toulouse, France.

    This sounds like a fun experience to have in Beijing. If any tFSers attend and you are permitted to take photos, please post the fashion and architectural exhibits in particular. Thanks! :heart: Apparently, the show will tour to four cities, from Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong Province, to Shanghai and Beijing before coming to Chengdu, capital of Sichuan Province. The exhibition is currently at Beijing's SOHO-Shangdu Shopping Mall until Sept. 1.

    "Myths" by Heimo Schmidt, proudly presented by Point of View Gallery.


    [​IMG]




    In his first solo exhibition entitled "Myths", Heimo Schmidt presents a minimal and contemporary vision of postmodern photography. Embodied with a detailed fashion sensibility, his iconic compositions of Icelandic landscapes and portraits are captured with haunting realism. Through his camera lens, Heimo captures an almost monochromatic austerity and infuses his own colorful creativity, enhancing the visual drama of the already powerful composition.

    there is an article in the NYT today by Guy Trebay about the line between fine and commercial art embodied by fashion photographers.

    here are two excerpts, but its worth reading the whole story here
