Refugee Stories Told from a Barge, Timed for UN General Assembly Session "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Rendering of Night Watch installation by Shimon Attie on waterborne crew boat (courtesy More Art)

Shimon Attie does not want you to mistake him for a politician. He is simply interested in creating new avenues for political discourse. Perhaps, this is why the artist has taken to Manhattans waterways with his latest work, Night Watch, which is a floating barge featuring a large-scale video projection of recent New Yorkers granted political asylum after fleeing violence and discrimination in their homelands.

I intend to use the language of contemporary art to create new representations for how we see the other or the outsider, Attie said in a statement.

Speaking further with Hyperallergic about his project, Attie noted that Americans, especially New Yorkers, should become more cognizant of the refugees who live with us us as neighbors and co-workers. Through understanding their stories, we might better understand the toll that rightwing, xenophobic rhetoric is having on their lives.

In conversation, though, Attie does not explicitly connect Night Watch to President Donald Trumps actions, although the commander-in-chiefs shadow certainly looms large over a project confronting the countrys controversial immigration policing tactics. He did, however, pose one open question: What does one do with a mad dog of history?

The artists answer seems evident in his work, which will go on view from September 2027, coinciding with the annual session of the United Nations General Assembly. With the institutions headquarters on the East Rivers shore, its probable that many diplomats and world leaders will see Atties piece. Its possible that the president himself may see it.

Uncanny Resemblances Between Classic Dog Breeds and Humans Captured by Gerrard Gethings "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Gerrard Gethings has captured a lot of personalities as an animal photographer, including his own canine muse Baxter. Therefore when he began shooting his latest series that paired humans and look-alike dog breeds, it would only make sense that he would first focus on finding the perfect animal models before locating matching humans. For the memory game Do You Look Like Your Dog? Gethings spent a year creating images that examine the classic trope of owners looking just like their canine friends. The new game presents 25 matches, which include a long-haired Afghan and equally silky-haired owner, a messy-haired kid and his scruffy puppy, and Schnauzer with a matching beard to his leather jacket-clad owner. You can now purchase the memory game through Laurence King, and see more of Gethingss animal portraiture on Instagram.

Located in the heart of Hollywood, the newly opened JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles serves to showcase the best of Japanese art, design, gastronomy, innovation and technology offering a rich experience that intrigues the five senses. The organizations mission is to provide a forum for creative and intellectual exchange and deepen mutual understanding.

JAPAN HOUSE LAs current exhibition, Prototyping in Tokyo, is an interactive exhibition introducing the advanced technologies utilized by Professor Shunji Yamanaka in his development of cutting-edge prototypes. The exhibition highlights the importance of prototypes as objects that link new technologies and society, offering a glimpse into possible future user experiences. Creations often only shared within the research community, present the public with a unique window into the dreams and creative trials of researchers, combining technology with intrinsic Japanese aesthetics.

The organization routinely offers complimentary art events and workshops for children and adults. Upcoming events include a Piperoid Workshop and an Origami Workshop. Other features include a space for seminars, lectures and gastronomy events, a shop for Japanese retail products, a relaxing library lounge, a small caf, and a Japanese restaurant with spectacular views of Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles.

Prototyping in Tokyo runs through October 10, 2018 and is free to the public.

Billionaire Art Collector Wants to Take Artists into Space "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

A digital drawing of outer space by artist Mattia Merlo (via Mattia Merlos Flickrstream)

Space travel has historically been controlled by government entities thus the chance to be an astronaut was limited by their tedious, bureaucratic tendency to recruit people who can, you know, fly aircraft and, like, understand astrophysics. But here in our glorious age of Late Capitalism, we collectively demonstrate that there is no endeavor requiring any greater qualification than being excessively wealthy!

Why is this great news for art weirdos? Because, as reported by The Washington Post, Elon Musks private cosmic project SpaceX, announced yesterday that the first paying tourist that his company intends to fly on a trip around the moon is none other than Yusaku Maezawa. Maezawa, a Japanese billionaire entrepreneur, made news last year when he dropped $110.5 million on a painting by US artist Jean-Michel Basquiat at a Sothebys auction. Not content to merely pay astronomical prices for artworks, Maezawa now intends to make astronauts of artists, as he announced his intention to diversify his space-entourage with an international group of six to eight sculptors, painters, architects and filmmakers. Maezawa is quoted as saying the trip, slated for 2023, will lead to the production of art...

The History of the Guitar & Guitar Legends: From 1929 to 1979 "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In the age of the Classical Education, students pored over and memorized the works of authorities, exemplars of grammar, rhetoric, logic, etc. Constellations in the night sky of ignorance, so to speak, these writers and thinkers showed the way to knowledge through their excellence. The method may have fallen out of favor in modern pedagogy, but it survives in popular culture, and in the videos here, producer and musician Rick Beato employs it as a way of teaching the history of guitar.

In the episode above, he names guitar players from 1929-1969 that every serious guitarist should know. Below, he does the same for the decade of the seventies. These guitarists exemplify Classical, Blues, Jazz, Country and Rock & Roll guitar, according to Beato, and yes, he knows he probably left off your favorite players, so go ahead and mention them in the comments.




Beato includes a brief film or audio clip of each player, with the unspoken assumption that serious students will seek out more of their recorded music and become more familiar with what made them unique. In the list below, you can see the 48 names he lists in his first video.

1. Andres Segovia
2. Julian Bream
3. Charley Patton
4. Robert Johnson
5. Lightnin Hopkins
6. Blind Lemon Jefferson
7. Leadbelly 8. Elmore James
9. Muddy Waters
10. Freddie King
11. Albert King
12. B.B. King
13. Buddy Guy
14. Otis Rush
15. Django Reinhardt
16. Charlie Christian
17. Wes Montgomery
18. Joe Pass
19. George Benson
20. Barney Kessel
21. Herb Ellis
22. George Van Eps
23. Kenny Burrell
24. Jim Hall
25. Grant Green
26. Tal Farlow
27. Antonio Carlos Jobim
28. Les Paul and Mary Ford
29. Chuck Berry
30. Hank Marvin
31. Dick Dale
32. George Harrison
33. Keith Richards
34. Steve Cropper
35. Chet Atkins
36. Jerry Reed
37. Glen Campbell
38. Jimi Hendrix

40. Jimmy Page
41. Jeff Beck

Remembering Robert F. Kennedys Funeral Train, 50 Years Later "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Paul Fusco, Untitled, from the series RFK Funeral Train (1968) ( Magnum Photos, courtesy Danziger Gallery)

ARLES, France  Senator Robert Kennedy was shot at the Ambassador Hotel in California shortly after midnight on June 5th, 1968. Twenty-six hours later, he was dead. His body was brought back to New York City and lay in state at St. Patricks Cathedral on June 7th and June 8th. The Cathedral was open to the public for two days and people waited six to eight hours in the sweltering heat, in a line that stretched twenty-five city blocks, to gain entry to the Cathedral and walk past his flag-draped casket.

On June 7th, 1968, a week after my fifteenth birthday, I got up in the morning and dressed in my favorite mini-skirt. It was baby blue and covered in a pattern of small white squares. It had a matching tank top. I boarded a bus in suburbia that took me to the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City, and from there, I made my way to St. Patricks Cathedral and joined the throng waiting on line to file past Robert Kennedys casket. It was 80 degrees a little after 10:00 a.m. and just over ninety by 1:30 in the afternoon. I was alone, completely inappropriately dressed to visit a Cathedral and without even a bottle of water. But being young and alone had advantages. I managed to gently cut in line several times and made it into the Cathedral in a record three and a half hours. What happened then is mostly lost to memory except for the fact that I was sure I had touched Kennedys casket when I walked past. In our current security-conscious age, that seemed to me to be a made-up recollection. But after googling around, I found this image of a young boy with his hand on the casket and concluded that the recollection must be true.

Jill Magids Epic Quest to Unlock Luis Barragns Archives Is Now a Movie "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Jill Magid in The Proposal (courtesy CIFF)

Since 2013, conceptual artist Jill Magid has worked on The Barragn Archives, a project which encompasses her efforts to access the archives of revered Mexican architect Luis Barragn. Currently, all of Barragns materials are held in a vault by Swiss furniture company Vitra. And the key is kept by Frederica Zanco, the wife of Vitra heir Rolf Fehlbaum. Magid has meticulously documented the myriad legal and informal procedures shes gone through in trying to get to the archive. The most well-publicized step came when (with the Barragn familys permission) she exhumed some of the architects ashes, had them pressed into a diamond, set it in a ring, and offered that ring to Zanco in exchange for entry to the vault all of this playing on the rumor that Fehlbaum bought the archives for Zanco in lieu of an engagement ring.

Adding to the already existing layers of fictionalization and obfuscation Magid has conjured around her quest, she chronicled the whole process in her new film The Proposal, which screened this past weekend at the Camden International Film Festival. Parts of the movie were already incorporated into her previous works. The sequence in which workers open up Barragns vault in order to retrieve his ashes was before this a short film, The Exhumation. Likewise, the documents (or reproductions of documents) presented to the camera were part of her exhibitions The Proposal and A Letter Always Arrives At Its Destination, the previous installments in this project.

These elements take on new significance in the shift of context from galleries where they can be perused at a visitors leisure to a film, in which the artist has full control of whe...
