Body Art Around The World

Body adornment has always included body painting, tattooing, and other kinds of body art, this has been the case over the ages; but in recent times, body art has become more varied and endlessly creative.

Negative Space: The unoccupied or empty space left after the positive shapes have been placed by the artist. The early years of the 20th century were characterized in the visual arts by a radical international reassessment of the relationship between vision and representation, as well as of the social and political role of artists in society at large. The extraordinary modern collection at the Yale University Art Gallery spans these years of dramatic change and features rich holdings in abstract painting by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, and Wassily Kandinsky, as well as in paintings and sculptures associated with German Expressionism, Russian Constructivism, De Stijl, Dada, and Surrealism. Many of these works came to Yale in the form of gifts and bequests from important American collections, including those of Molly and Walter Bareiss, B.S. 1940s; Stephen Carlton Clark, B.A. 1903; Mr. and Mrs. Paul Mellon, B.A. 1929; Katharine Ordway; and John Hay Whitney. Since October of 2009, music therapy services have been provided to premature infants in a 25-bed NICU located in the southeastern region of the U.S. Services have not been provided for infants younger than 27 weeks post corrected age (PCA) because additional research is needed to determine whether music therapy will be beneficial or contraindicated for this vulnerable population (infants 25-27 weeks PCA who weigh less than two pounds). Only two researchers have used music with infants 26 weeks PCA and older, but there was not a lot of information regarding the number of infants who were 26 weeks PCA or receiving ventilator assistance at the time of music therapy. This zoo has paintings by various species, available intermittently, but not at the time of this writing. All profits go to assisting the zoo to build new enclosures.

Joan Miró’s artwork graces many museums around the world and is also in numerous private collections of people who can afford his prices. He has created unique, eyecatching colorful sculptures and also paints and creates works of art on paper. My husband and I were fortunate enough to be able to visit the Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona, Spain, during the summer Olympics back in 1992, where we saw a vast collection of his works.

A large grassy opening between the trees in a park with a shootie shoot. Light shines brightly in later afternoon. The three cast shadows and are caught in shadow themselves. The wall of a building in the background catches the light and reflects it. The trees are stylized and simplified by the use of flat rectangular shapes. Many greens appear in the painting.

During the 20th century, artists depicted the horse in styles such as Modernist, Post-modern, and Minimalist that would dominate the century. German painter Franz Marc painted some Expressionist horse paintings and Spanish artist Pablo Picasso painted some of the most unique horse paintings ever made in his Cubist style. A former assistant curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Monique Meloche worked for Rhona Hoffman Gallery and Kavi Gupta Gallery before becoming an art dealer herself, opening a space in Fulton Market in 2001. Monique Meloche Gallery is now located in West Town and has established itself as a destination for consistently intriguing contemporary art in all media. The Bauhaus school was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar, Germany. In spite of its name, and the fact that its founder was an architect, the Bauhaus did not have an architecture department during the first years of its existence. Nonetheless it was founded with the idea of creating a ‘total’ work of art in which all arts, including architecture would eventually be brought together. The Bauhaus style became one of the most influential currents in modern architecture and modern design. The Bauhaus has had a profound influence upon later developments in art, architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial design, and typography. Director of ACCA (Australian Centre Contemporary Art), Max Delany wrote of Nixon on social media: ‘John has been an inspiration throughout his life and work as an artist, curator, small press publisher and teacher. As a mentor to and collaborator with generations of artists and curators, he shared his generosity, wisdom and good humour with so many. Thaut, M.H., Peterson, D.A., Sena, K.M., & Mcintosh, G.C.
