The Saatchi Gallery has opened its doors to a monumental exhibition of artworks by artists of the Soviet underground. Breaking the Ice: Moscow Art 1960-80s was selected by curator, Andrei Erofeev, and includes works by 21 different artists including Rabin, Tselkov, Bulatov, Komar and Melamid, and Kosolapov. At the same time, an exhibition of Saatchi’s collection of contemporary art from Russia hits viewers in the face. The story becomes complicated right from the start, in part because the initial appropriation of African ideas was so successful, visually, within the context of European art. It led to an explosion of ideas and forms, influential across almost the whole spectrum of Western creativity. And it happened at a moment when African American artists were beginning to assert their presence within that milieu, and looking for ways to consolidate a sense of identity in an art world that largely rejected them. So the initial appropriation led to re-appropriation, as African American artists repurposed what the European artists had initially borrowed. Outcome measures were very heterogeneous. Discrete measures rather than a comprehensive set of outcomes were studied in most papers. They were aggression, agitation (in two studies), wandering behaviors or behavioral problems in general (in three studies); language functioning; and anxiety and depression. Only one study investigated social, cognitive and emotional functioning together. Both individual receptive and active group music therapy were more effective than control or no intervention on behavioral problems; have doubtful effect on cognitive skills; and are effective on social and emotional functioning including depression and anxiety.

In these portrait programs, the figures were identified by their clothing and other attributes as well as by dipinti, that is, painted inscriptions (fig. 1). For the portraits of Antony and Athanasius, I ask how literate monastic viewers would have read the mantles worn by the fathers in the painted programs as representative of the categorical identity of the saint, his authority, and the honor due to him, and how the fictive mantle could have been seen to furnish the space of the room and function as a cue to memory (fig. 2). I also address associations of clothing and other attributes that located the saint in relation to the monastic viewers assembled in these rooms. These aspects of the program underscore how the monastic community adapted traditions of the elite household extending back to the early Roman Empire. Both in early imperial elite society and in the deeply scripturalized monastic communities of late antiquity, clothing had the capacity to carry memory, transfer authority, and even transform the wearer. In short, clothing was a critically important and venerable traditional element for the memory of individual monks and that of the monastic community. Iliya, Y.A. (2015).

With their frequently scant brushwork, marks and indications of natural phenomena, the 10 landscape paintings and three graphite drawings in Lois Dodd: Early Paintings” at Alexandre Gallery form a real eye-opener. Ms. Dodd, who is 89 and has only lately been receiving the attention she deserves, made these works between 1958 and 1966. This show is probably their biggest reunion since then.

Many types of music, such as traditional blues and folk music were not written down in sheet music ; instead, they were originally preserved in the memory of performers, and the songs were handed down orally , from one musician or singer to another, or aurally, in which a performer learns a song ” by ear “. When the composer of a song or piece is no longer known, this music is often classified as “traditional” or as a “folk song”. Different musical traditions have different attitudes towards how and where to make changes to the original source material, from quite strict, to those that demand improvisation or modification to the music. A culture’s history and stories may also be passed on by ear through song. polyphony : multiple independent melody lines that interweave together, which are sung or played at the same time. Choral music written in the Renaissance music era was typically written in this style. A round , which is a song such as ” Row, Row, Row Your Boat “, which different groups of singers all start to sing at a different time, is a simple example of polyphony. Song structure or form is determined by the combination of meter and harmonic progression, and to a slightly lesser extent the regular return of thematic hooks, or ostinati when being fancy. Classical and chamber music has a multitude of forms, while many contemporary works strive to be formless, called through-composed.” At the same time, a musical work that rejects discernible melodies or rhythms might rely heavily on its structure to convey a sense of musicality. This interplay of de-emphasizing one musical ingredient, then emphasizing another as substitution will get brought up several times during this series.

The exhibition traces the complex back-and-forth between artists up to the current moment, in which artists are engaged in much more direct critique of the modernist inheritance. Titus Kaphar uses thick fields of black tar to encroach on the morally obtuse prettiness of Impressionism, forcing viewers to confront the cost of European wealth and luxury — in large measure derived from global exploitation. What is missing from these colorful Impressionist paintings that are so beloved by museum audiences? Not just African figures, but also the history of Africa, transpiring with substantial misery so far away at the same time that Monet was painting women with parasols in green fields speckled with flowers. We tend to associate the birth of abstraction with the artist Wassily Kandinsky and the artistic revolution he initiated during the 20th century. As one of the movement’s pioneers, he was at the forefront of the breakaway from representational art along with Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian and Kupka. Kandinsky not only shared his views on abstraction through his art but also in his written work. In 1910 he published his book Concerning the Spiritual in Art” in which he defended the symbolic importance of each of the elements present in painting and which gave each artwork a spiritual dimension. In the same year, he unveiled his first abstract piece, entitled Abstract watercolour”. Abstract art was born. Figurativism had been left to one side in favour of a new movement where artists dealt directly with the intangible and immaterial, without explicitly identifying a subject matter. Several sub-genres started to emerge. Kazimir Malevich became known for his legendary 1915 painting Black Square”, followed by White on White” in 1918, with which he laid the foundations for Suprematism. Malevich believed that a painting was composed of an ensemble of independent forces which could evolve together in the order to find a sense of harmony and equilibrium within the work. Abstraction can also take on a more lyrical form, especially when accompanied by music. Kandinsky’s the Picture with the Black Arch” is an excellent example of this. The large-scale painting was painted in 1912 and is seen as a marking the turning point for a new era in the history of art. Purpose: The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of music therapy on stress, relaxation, mood, and perception of side effects in hospitalized solid organ transplant donors and recipients utilizing a randomized control trial. I have had the pleasure of being body painted by a world renowned French Make-Up Artist in 1984, which was to have a major impact on my choice of career.

Music therapy is a type of intervention for a variety of mental and physical challenges and conditions. It is based on the results of research studies and clinical reviews. Goals of music therapy depend on the needs of the individual as well as the setting where the music therapy is taking place. A credentialed music therapist conducts music therapy sessions where clients participate in music-related activities to enhance their physical and mental well-being. Intensity, light, and bright colours. It is interesting to speculate on the significance of this meeting place to the artist. Somehow it seems a treasured place, filled with happy memories. The artist has carefully chosen her fibres to create the wanted textures, throughout the pieces. Through the use of pattern, line, contrasting light and dark tones, and repetition of these, we feel a strong sense of movement. The pink sexless bodies contrast with the busy textures of the earth tones of the middleground. The background area makes use of whites, greys, and pale blues which leave the space open to a feeling of great depth and distance. Animals can hear music in a sense—your dog might be frightened by the loud noise emitted by your stereo. But we do not hear music in this way; we can listen to it with understanding. What constitutes this experience of understanding music? To use an analogy, while the mere sound of a piece of music might be represented by a sonogram, our experience of it as music is better represented by something like a marked-up score. We hear individual notes that make up distinct melodies, harmonies, rhythms, sections, and so on, and the interaction between these elements. Such musical understanding comes in degrees along a number of dimensions. Your understanding of a given piece or style may be deeper than mine, while the reverse is true for another piece or style. I may hear more in a particular piece than you do, but my understanding of it may be inaccurate. My general musical understanding may be narrow, in the sense that I only understand one kind of music, while you understand many different kinds. Moreover, different pieces or kinds of pieces may call on different abilities, since some music has no harmony to speak of, some no melody, and so on. Many argue that, in addition to purely musical features, understanding the emotions expressed in a piece is essential to adequately understanding it.
