The Accursed Poets

Posted June 30th by in Art, Culture, Poetry


Paul Verlaine

Nineteenth-century French poete maudits (accursed poets — poets who lived outside or rebelled against society), such as Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud and Comte de Lautreamont, have inspired numerous artists of various eras. An exhibition in Japan showcases etchings and prints of 20th-century artists, including Maurice Denis, Salvador Dali and Roberto Matta, who celebrated such French poetry. On view are around 180 works, including Matta’s interpretation of Rimbaud’s “Une Saison en Enfer” and a copy of de Lautreamont’s “Les Chants de Maldoror,” which inspired print works by Bernard Buffet as well as illustrations by Dali. On view until August 7 at the Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts, (042) 726-2771, 4-28-1 Haramachida, Machida-shi.

GARDENS & VILLA

Posted June 30th by in Music

“In the year of the saxophone, Santa Barbara’s Gardens & Villa give us the flute. And along the way, Gardens & Villa effectively wipe clear the vaseline from the murky bedroom funk of recent days. Gardens & Villa bang out instant classics — each crystal clear and immaculate, but no less sweeping or languid. Their debut is a youthful exploration of just how opulent and pop starkness can go.” Gardens & Villa continue on their North American tour as they wrap up dates with Foster The People and head out with Generationals, followed by shows with Craft Spells. Gardens & Villa’s debut LP is out July 5 on Secretly Canadian.

Gardens and Villa “Star, Fire, Power”

The Urbaneering Shirt by Serum Versus Venom

Posted June 28th by in Fashion

“Serum Venom set out to investigate how to push the limits of a modern workshirt, without compromising its classic appeal. We focused on combining the attention to detail and strength of military specification garments with the day to day functionality requirements of an urban existence. Our conclusion is a system of design we refer to as Street/Spec, which combines extreme tactical functionality with everyday comfort.  The Urbaneering Shirt has multiple function pockets, reinforced cuffs, lower placket tab closures, heavy duty under arm vents, rear hidden hang strap, reinforced front placket strap loops, authentic vintage metal workwear button, side tension stash pocket and reinforced universal internal seams.” www.thekdu.net

AN OBSCENE DIARY: THE VISUAL WORLD OF SAM STEWARD

Posted June 27th by in Culture, Sex

“An Obscene Diary The Visual World of Sam Steward” chronicles the extraordinary visual world of a talented and largely unknown, writer, artist, photographer, and sexual outlaw. The edition, limited to 1,000 copies presents a diverse and powerful collection of drawings, paintings, sculptures, decorative objects, illustrations and photographs that are remarkably varied in style, and often quite contradictory in mood and tone. Bound and slipcased, the collection presents more than 750 images, many of which are reproduced in color. This edition complements the forthcoming biography by Justin Spring, entitled “Secret Historian: The Life and Times of Samuel Steward, Professor, Tattoo Artist, and Sexual Renegade” and presents a wealth of previously unpublished material, including a quantity of highly erotic and sexually explicit polaroids taken in the early 1950s.  www.antinouspress.com
