Here’s a 60-second intro to the enigmatic work of Clyfford Still, one of the leading Abstract Expressionist painters. Why is he less known in the UK than the likes of Rothko and Pollock? The RA’s Artistic Director Tim Marlow explains. We regularly hold new exhibitions in the gallery. Music is a binding factor in our social milieu; it is a feature with and about us, a universal still shrouded in endless mystery. Music cuts across diverse cognitive capabilities and resources, including numeracy, language, and spacial perception. In the same way, music intersects with cultural boundaries, facilitating our social self” by linking our shared experiences and intentions. Perhaps one primordial influence is the social interaction of parental attachments, which are fundamental to gaining a foothold in the social milieu, learning, and surviving; music and song are conduits for forging links across barriers, for making contact with others, and for being indoctrinated with the social milieu.

Technology’s novelty, multimedia capabilities, and multi-facet interactions create intrigue and motivation to engage in music therapy, especially for certain clientele. In addition, for some clients, adaptive technology is the only access to independence and musical expression. Certain technology can also assist in the collection of quantitative data, an essential task in justifying music therapy in the research community. Overall, technology has the capacity to extend the reach of music therapy’s therapeutic benefits across wide-ranging populations and goals. Robarts, J., & Sloboda, A. (1994).

Yevgeniy Fiks explores conspiracy theories of American politics in his new exhibition Communist Conspiracy in Art Threatens American Museums at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. Curated by Statima Gregory, the installation includes printed works on canvas, ink drawings, digital works on paper and sound, the artist continues to explore the themes of how communism and modernism are connected in contemporary history. Exhibition runs from 8 September – 6 November 2010. Modernism didn’t just stop, it was gradually overtaken by events during the late 1960s – a period which coincided with the rise of mass pop-culture and also with the rise of anti-authoritarian challenges (in social and political areas as well as the arts) to the existing orthodoxies. A key year was 1968, which witnessed the Tet Offensive, the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, and street demonstrations throughout the capitals of Europe. As Modernism began to look increasingly old-fashioned, it gave way to what is known as “Contemporary Art” – meaning “art of the present era”. The term “Contemporary Art” is neutral as to the progressiveness of the art in question, and so another phrase – “postmodernism” – is often used to denote recent avant-garde art Schools of “postmodernist art” advocate a new set of aesthetics characterized by a greater focus on medium and style. For instance, they emphasize style over substance (eg. not ‘what’ but ‘how’; not ‘art for art’s sake’, but ‘style for style’s sake’), and place much greater importance on artist-communication with the audience.
