Nur für XING Mitglieder sichtbar 'Next: A Primer on Urban Painting'
Dear friends,
This Thursday, MCASD (Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego) kicks off its series of films exploring artists and topics related to its current exhibition, Viva la Revolución: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape.
'Next: A Primer on Urban Painting', the first film in this series, is a documentary exploration of graffiti-based visual art and the influences of urban culture. The filmmakers take a global look at the art form, compiling footage taken from the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan, and Brazil. A combination of audacious footage and candid interviews with painters, writers, designers, and other participants in the subculture, the film conveys the dynamism and creative brilliance of this important, emerging artistic movement.
ADMISSION: Free MCASD Members*; $5 Students, Seniors; $7 General
Kind regards from La Jolla,

Nur für XING Mitglieder sichtbar Unframed: LACMA blog
Dear friends,
It’s been a long and winding road to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Renzo Piano-designed Resnick Exhibition Pavillion – according to LACMA, ‘the largest purpose-built open-plan museum space in the world’ which finally opened to the public last month.
Following the building’s every move and so much more, is ‘Unframed’ – a blog run by a team of LACMA staffers and curators who, in their own words, ‘hope to transcend those major categories and create an open conversation about all the things we find intriguing or brilliant or curious as art fans and museum hands.’
Launched on the day LACMA broke ground on the Resnick Pavillion just over two years ago, Unframed runs modestly alongside lacma.org, bound in subject matter only by a relationship, tangential or otherwise, to the art and artist of LACMA, L.A, and Southern California. But the key, as Tom Drury, Senior Editor of lacma.org and founder of Unframed, explains, ‘is that the tone is conversational, person-to-person. Passion, humor, and candor are prized. Being in touch with what turns you on about art is prized most of all. And we don’t deduct points for not having all the answers.’
Kind regards,
Nilgun
Nur für XING Mitglieder sichtbar 'Types We Can Make' exhibition at MIT Museum, USA
Dear friends,
With their 'International Typographic Style' - defined by its clean lines and asymmetric layouts - the Swiss blazed a trail in the world of graphic design in the 1950s. Now a new generation is having its turn in the spotlight, thanks to an exhibition curated by Lausanne design school, Ecal, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
'Types We Can Make' at MIT Museum's Compton Gallery presents a selection of modern Swiss typography from the likes of Cornel Windlin (former art editor for The Face magazine) and Dimitri Bruni and Manuel Krebs of NORM (regular collaborators with the Tate Modern and the Museum for Design Zurich). Together they pay homage to their country's long typographic tradition, but challenge, subvert and play with it simultaneously, using both digital and traditional design tools and bold creative strokes.
Among the exhibits are font designs, artist monographs, magazines, poster illustrations and logos from design authorities, such as Sang Bleu magazine founder, Maxime Büchi, and Gavillet & Rust, who created the brand identity for Jay-Z's entertainment venture Roc Nation. The selection shows off the wide palette of type design emerging from Switzerland today.
