A Profile of the Painter and the Poet – ARTnews.com

Etel Adnan’s contribution to the 2015 Istanbul Biennale was an artist’s book titled Family Memoirs on the End of the Ottoman Empire. This accordion-fold work contains the artist’s handwritten recollections, in Turkish and English, concerning her family and the catastrophic conflicts of the decade before her birth in 1925. As the text mentions politically sensitive material—social ties between Turkish and Armenian families before the 1915–17 Armenian-Assyrian-Greek Genocide—what had originally been foreseen as an accompanying wall text was shrunk down to a more discreet card one could read while viewing the turning of the pages. At the Biennale, a white-gloved assistant seated at a table silently lifted, displayed, and shifted the pages for visitors.

Family Memoirs on the End of the Ottoman Empire is but one example of Adnan’s sensitivity to the ways in which we look, read, and remember—a sensitivity that inflects her larger hybrid art-and-writing practice.

Some national parks have a day or weekend at the beginning or end of the regular season when the roads that are covered in snow over the winter are cleared and ready for cars. But he doesn’t do much for me. I don’t find him particularly exciting, and some of his paintings just seem pedestrian (though very well done). The film is more drama than action, so it’s understandable that there’s going to be a ton of tearjerker moments, but if you thought Gackt dying in Hyde’s arms during the film’s climax was the saddest part of the film, you’d be wrong. The ending shows that he was in fact turned into a vampire as well, but they’ve got nothing … Read the rest

Section of 1,900-Year-Old Hadrian’s Wall Uncovered – ARTnews.com

Workers from Northumbrian Water Group (NWG) uncovered a new section of Hadrian’s Wall when they were replacing a water main beneath a busy city street near the city center of Newcastle in northeast England. NWG announced the discovery in a statement on Monday.

The nearly 10-foot section of wall was revealed just below surface level. Preserved for almost 2,000 years, the section comprises a small fragment of the original wall, which ran between the island’s eastern and western coasts.

“We believe that we uncovered part of the wall’s earliest phase,” said Philippa Hunter of Archaeological Research Services Ltd., a consulting company hired to record and protect the find. The use of large stone blocks indicates that the wall segment belongs to the earliest phase of construction, as later building phases used much smaller stones.

Austrian Museum Won’t Loan Famed Headdress to Mexico – ARTnews.com

In 2020, Mexican officials made impassioned requests for the loan of a storied Aztec headdress held by Austria’s Weltmuseum Wien. This week, the Vienna institution officially denied those requests, ensuring that the headdress will not return to Mexico this year to tie in with the 500th anniversary of Spain’s conquest of the Aztec empire in 1521.

The German press agency dpa reported on Monday that the Weltmuseum Wien told Mexican leaders that it could not travel the headdress, claiming that the object was too fragile to make the journey. “Due to the considerable risk of possible damage during transport, the request for a loan cannot be granted,” Austria’s State Secretariat for Culture told dpa in a statement.

Banksy Takes ‘Great British Spraycation,’ Creates New Murals – ARTnews.com

The elusive street artist Banksy is at it once again, producing a slew of works that have appeared along the east coast of England, the country he calls home. He confirmed that he was the creator of the works by way of an Instagram video focused on his travels in a camper van. 

The first of the murals, featuring a couple dancing atop a bus shelter and a man playing an accordion, was spotted in Great Yarmouth, followed by one showing an arcade toy-grabber crane that appeared in the nearby town of Gorleston. More artworks—one depicting a child building a sandcastle with a crowbar in Lowestoft, the other featuring three children in a boat in Oulton Broad—soon arrived.

Wong Ping’s Animated Videos Imagine Worlds Unbound by Social Mores – ARTnews.com

Around two years ago, Wong Ping took an interest in varicose veins. Bored one day while riding an elevator, he noticed them on a passenger’s legs. “I could see them very clearly,” he said from his Hong Kong studio during a recent Zoom interview. He began researching online, reading about gels that alleviate the discomfort they cause. What would it be like, he wondered, to be a varicose vein?

That inquiry wound up forming the basis for Wong’s latest video, which debuted this past June in his first United States survey exhibition, at the New Museum in New York. His practice involves applying dream-world logic to real-world scenarios. “[I’m] interested in something that’s a mixture of weirdness and the real world, or something out of this world happening in real society,” he said. “A mixture between [here] and somewhere else, maybe something happening on some other planet. It gives this

Pornhub Removes Content from Classical Nude Series After Complaints – ARTnews.com

Last month, Pornhub launched Classic Nudes, an interactive guide to some of the erotic art that can be found in major museums around the world. Following complaints from the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, and the Louvre in Paris, audio tours and other content referencing artworks owned these institutions have been removed.

Though works from those three institutions are no longer part of Classic Nudes, content derived from paintings at other top museums—including the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the National Gallery in London, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York—still remain on as part of the guide.

Following the guide’s launch, the Uffizi announced that it was planning to sue Pornhub for copyright infringement. In particular, the Uffizi objected to Pornhub’s use of Titian’s famed Venus of Urbino (1538) in a pornographic reenactment with the amateur adult couple, My SweetApple.
