A Few Things About / The Leopard
By BRANDON VARGAS
Film
 

© Luchino Visconti, 1963

A FEAST OF FILM
EPIC FILMMAKING AT ITS FINEST
A stunning visualization of melancholy & nostalgia
felt at the passing of an era


This weekend the Museum of the Moving Image will be holding screenings of the classic grande epic, The Leopard, as part of its See It Big! series. Long hailed as thee film to see by Luchino Visconti, The Leopard, chronicles the fortunes of Prince Fabrizio Salina and his family during the unification of Italy in the 1860s and the dissolution of 19th century Sicilian nobility.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, the film is a remarkable cinematic achievement superbly illustrating a refined way of life; elaborate and luxurious, but internally cramped, dour, and confined by rigid restraints. Visconti translates di Lampedusa's book seamlessly with brilliant pictures, almost like paintings, illustrating the autumnal mood of change and decay that the onrush of social revolution brought to one family and to the spirits of one strong man. A more than 40 year old evocation of an era now some 150 years in the past, we can still feel the ache, sentiment, and sadness deeply felt by the Prince of Salina.

DO NOT
DISTURB

Sexy, racy, feminine, and provocative are the first four words that come to mind upon viewing Ellen von Unwerth’s new collection of work impeccably titled Do Not Disturb, on exhibit at Michael Hoppen Gallery in London.

Ellen, listed as one of Time Magazine’s 100 Fashion Icons, is known for her signature high fashion, sexually styled photographs and this collection undoubtedly showcases this. The decadently hued rooms of Los Angeles’s Madonna Inn set the scene for the femme fatale-like models. The combination of luscious lips, golden-blonde tresses of hair, exquisite lingerie, and the rich interiors of the rooms complement each other all too well.

YAYOI          
     KUSAMA

This summer the traveling retrospective of Yayoi Kusama's work is making its final stop at the Whitney Museum of American Art. The exhibit offers an overview of the artist's work spanning 60 years of her practice and featuring more than 300 works. An intimate and entertaining examination of the artists life, the retrospective has been sparking the interests and imaginations of viewers across the globe as it's traveled from the Tate Modern in London, to the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte in Madrid.

On view at the retrospective you can expect Kusama's beautifully dense dot patterns, her Accumulation sculptures; which feature everyday objects (chairs, sofas, suitcases, and shoes) covered in an overwhelming mass of protruding phallic-like fabric. Photo collages, new paintings, and large-scale environments will also envelop the viewer within Kusama's surreal world. In the main lobby of the museum, art seekers can enter a wonderfully immersive and celestial environment entitled Fireflies on the Water. Entering one by one, Kusama’s dazzling den is an experience of seemingly endless space with mirrored walls, 150 hanging lights, and a pool of water.

ASTRAL
CONVERTED


Park Avenue Armory presents Trisha Brown Dance Company’s reconstruction of Astral Converted, a groundbreaking work by acclaimed choreographer Trisha Brown. This highly anticipated revival marks the first time in 18 years the piece will be presented in its entirety in the soaring 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall.

The re-staging of Astral Converted brings back collaborators, Robert Rauschenberg, visual and costume design, with original music by John Cage.  Astral's dark and cosmos like set  is anchored by Rauschenberg's motion sensored towers which activated by the dancers’ movements initiate the performance’s light and sound. The movement combines sudden bursts of gravity-defying plunges and crashes with fluid leaps and falls creating an unpredictable, understated, and powerful choreographic work. With moving bodies appearing as stars amid an illimitable darkness Astral Converted is the perfect performance piece for contemporary art fans with a bent for architecture or geometry.

Performances /
7:30pm at the Park Avenue Armory
July 10th – 14th, 2012

THE WORLD IS
SPOILED
AND SO ARE WE


This week BAMcinématek presents a special week long viewing of the surrealistic feminist polemic par excellence; Daisies / Sedmikrásky, directed by Vera Chytilová. Released in 1966 and later banned, this quintessential piece of Czech New Wave Cinema is an endlessly inventive and formally radical ode to rebellion; featuring a pair of colorful and uncommon young women rebelling against the structures of communist orthodoxy. Odds against the world, our (anti)heroines manifest a uniformly destructive approach to the world around them with disdain for all other company… male and female.  Playing pranks, indulging in pyromania, and equally wasteful of food and alcohol; companionship is more than enough to sustain them, as they share a world where nothing is allowed to make sense and nothing is sacred.

Watch the world decay in a most decadently amusing way in Daisies, with BAMcinématek. From July 6 th - 12th.


The duo, Marie I & II, embark on a journey of social mayhem as they decide
- The World is spoiled. So shall we be -

HELLO WENDY

Warm Up at MoMa PS1 is officially kicking off the summer season with the installation of Wendy the winning design for the annual Young Architects Program.

The program, now in it's 13th Edition, has been committed to offering emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design and present innovative projects by challenging each year’s winners to develop creative designs for a temporary outdoor installation that provides shade, seating, and water.

Wendy,
the winning project by HWKN (Matthias Hollwich & Marc Kushner) is an experiment that tests how far the boundaries of architecture can expand to create ecological and social effect. Wendy is composed of nylon fabric treated with a ground breaking titania nanoparticle spray to neutralize airborne pollutants.

During the summer of 2012, Wendy will clean the air to an equivalent of taking 260 cars off the road. Her spiky arms will also reach out to Warm Up attendees with blasts of cool air, music, water cannons, and mist to create social zones throughout the courtyard.

Kick off the summer season of Warm Up with Wendy this Saturday at MoMA PS1

Retro-Active / The Adventures of Prince Achmed
By BRANDON VARGAS

A RAPTUROUS ANIMATED
KALEIDOSCOPE

This Sunday a reconstructed bit of animation rarely seen, tremendously entertaining, and historically significant will screen at BAM. The Adventures of Prince Achmed, by pioneering, avant-garde, and often overlooked German filmmaker and female artist Lotte Reiniger, employs silhouetted black cardboard cutouts on illuminated glass to craft this dreamlike homage to The Arabian Nights.

Developed using stop animation and originally released in 1926, this special closing day event, hosted by BAMcinemaFest,  has enlisted two founding members of the Irish ambient rock band 3epkano's and avant-garde cellist Erik Friedlander to arrange and perform a new score as they find their muse in the oldest surviving animated feature film to date.



More than eighty years later, what's most surprising about The Adventures of Prince Achmed is still how extraordinarily beautiful it is. Just as it must have been for viewers back in 1926. Film director, Jean Renoir, son of the famous painter Pierre Auguste Renoir, is said to have been an early admirer of the film and instrumental in facilitating its general European release as a work of rare artistry and fluid beauty.

Screening Sunday / 6pm at BAM Rose Cinemas
