Eggleston’s Southern Gothic Travelogue at Prospect 2
Whilst Los Angeles is in the heavy throes of the city wide art invasion known as Pacific Standard Time, New Orleans is hosting its own city wide site specific exhibitions and artists’ projects happenings called Prospect 2 on view through January 2012. Now on view at the Old U.S. Mint, which is now the Louisiana State Museum, William Eggleston’s 77 minute long groundbreaking, surreal Southern Gothic travelogue Stranded in Canton, “a film that consistently teeters on the edge of dream and nightmare states. Its nocturnal visions of bar denizens, musicians (including Furry Lewis), transvestites and a variety of semi-crazies comes off like a Cassavetes all-nighter filmed by David Lynch at his most unsettling: faces loom out of darkness, shot in infrared, displaying pale glowing skin and deep black eyes.” On view at the The Louisiana State Museum at the Old U.S. Mint, 400 Esplanade Ave.

Le regard de personae
Malou Swinnen (b. 1944, Neerpelt) lives and works in Hasselt. As an artist she enjoys a high reputation at home and abroad and her pictures are regularly exhibited. They are also part of several collections, such as Photography Museums (Antwerp and Charleroi), the Ministry of the Flemish Community, the National Library in Paris, and various private collections. The fascination for the face, skin, the pose, the look and attributes are constants in her work. In 2010 she was invited by the Kunstbank (Art Bank) for artistic research. While studying their exclusive collection of textiles and accessories she re-portrayed the looks and the genre and in that way gets the series “Personae” (1995) a new follow-up. Malou Swinnen exhibits the new series “Le regard de personae” at the Fashion Museum Hasselt in Belgium until January 8.
STEVEN KLEIN: TIME CAPSULE
Garage Center for Contemporary Culture presents Time Capsule, a video installation by influential American fashion photographer Steven Klein, on view until December 4 2011. Time Capsule (2011) celebrates Klein as an artist whose work is equally suited to the pages of international fashion magazines as it is presented on the walls of some of the world’s most respected art galleries and museums. The installation continues Klein’s experimentation with moving image through the depiction of the stages of one woman’s life, played by model / actress Amber Valetta, until she reaches the age of 110. Garage Center for Contemporary Culture – 19A Ulitsa Obraztsova, Moscow.
Conversations with David Hockney
Sparky, illuminating and entertaining – a decade’s worth of conversations between David Hockney and art critic Martin Gayford that explore via anecdote, reflection, passion and humour the very nature of creativity.David Hockney is possibly the world’s most popular living painter, but he is also something else: an incisive and original thinker on art. Here are the fruits of his lifelong meditations on the problems and paradoxes of representing a three-dimensional world on a flat surface. How does drawing make one ‘see things clearer, and clearer, and clearer still’, as Hockney suggests? What significance do different media – from a Lascaux cave wall to an iPad – have for the way we see? What is the relationship between the images we make and the reality around us? How have changes in technology affected the way artists depict the world? A Bigger Message: Conversations with David Hockney is out now on Thames & Hudson.
