Yoko – El Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo

¿Existe aún el arte político?

El Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo analiza las relaciones entre arte y poder en una muestra cuyas múltiples caras recogen el malestar que genera la política actual
J. Bosco Díaz-Urmeneta | Actualizado 01.09.2014 – 05:00

Propuestas como Nutopía, promovida por Yoko Ono, o Estado Mental Evrugo, impulsado por Zush, muestran cómo el arte puede abrir espacios críticos cuando en política las cuestiones de hecho restringen el derecho y el pragmatismo destierra a las ideas.

German interview with SOL

At the same time you are but grew up in a very artistic environment.

Yes. My mother is incredibly wild. It has taken me as an eight year old in the film “Blue Velvet”. I was shocked. The only plate that has ever given me was the Threepenny Opera. She has never given me a Beatles album.

With this post we continue our series of videos documenting the 14 Rooms Live Art exhibition in Basel. This time we talk with Associate Curator Samuel Leuenberger.

14 Rooms was a collaboration between Fondation Beyeler, Art Basel and Theater Basel, and has been accompanied by an education program conceived and run by Fondation Beyeler. The project was originally commissioned as 11 Rooms by Manchester International Festival, the International Arts Festival RUHRTRIENNALE 2012-2014 and Manchester Art Gallery. It was shown as 11 Rooms at Manchester International Festival in July 2011, as 12 Rooms at the International Arts Festival RUHRTRIENNALE 2012-2014 and as 13 Rooms by Kaldor Public Art Projects at Pier 2/3 in Sydneys Walsh Bay in April 2013. For each edition, the artists list partially changed. Curated by Klaus Biesenbach and Hans Ulrich Obrist, the 14 Rooms exhibition featured performative works by artists including Marina Abramović, Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla, Ed Atkins, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Damien Hirst, Joan Jonas, Laura Lima, Bruce Nauman, Otobong Nkanga, Roman Ondák, Yoko Ono, Tino Sehgal, Santiago Sierra, and Xu Zhen. Two more works joined the architectural environment conceived by Herzog & de Meuron: Jordan Wolfsons acting as an epilogue, John Baldessaris as an archival documentation.

Double Fantasy film stills emerge

”Still images identified as from the video film shot at a John Lennon & Yoko Ono “Double Fantasy” recording session has emerged on social media lately. When John recorded Double Fantasy in 1980, a film crew spent a day in the studio filming John and Yoko. Lennon didn’t like the video footage when it was played back to him, as he thought he was to thin looking. The video was made on August 19, 1980. A little piece of Yoko singing “I’m moving on” was used in the 1984 TV special “Yoko Ono – Then and Now” (also released on home video).”

‘room for Yoko Ono and Norman Rockwell, George Tooker and Robert Rauschenberg’

Bearing artistic witness in the 60s
By Mark Feeney
| Globe Staff August 30, 2014

HANOVER, N.H. The first image in Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties is Barkley L. Hendrickss painting Lawdy Mama. As an introduction to the show a bracing mix of dynamism, ideology, and confrontation it could hardly be bettered. Witness runs through Dec. 14 at the Hood Museum of Art, at Dartmouth College.

There are almost as many styles: Africana, Abstract Expressionism, color field, Pop, Social Realism, even bits of Cubism (two Romare Bearden collages). Its an exhibition that not only can find room for Yoko Ono and Norman Rockwell, George Tooker and Robert Rauschenberg, it finds a way to make them cohere.
