Been a long time since a post came up on this page. But I have been away and feel free to guess which city it was (ok it’s not like I didn’t use it as title for this post…not at all).
So feel free insert Kanye/Jay-Z lyrics here.
I seriously will never understand why museums and artists do not allow us to take pictures from their exhibitions, especially when it’s photography. Like isn’t art there for to share it? Or are you so so so eager to make money out of it? And I will transform into a undercover agent every single time, gonna take pictures until I got the point why taking pictures is not allowed. So during Berlin Fashion Week for the first time in Berlin, the Kunstbibliothek – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin presents the work of the influential photographer Mario Testino at the Kulturforum.
The show Mario Testino In Your Face (20 January – 26 July 2015) presents the full range of his photographic work, in 125 images, placing particular emphasis on its provocative contrasts. If you don’t know how Mario Testino is by now, you definitely did something wrong with your life (just kidding). Check out Artsy’s Mario Testino page for more information about Testino. But the exhibition is dope as fuck (attention this post contains nudity!):
Museums are actually one of my most favorite places. It’s super quiet and relaxed and you get inspired by all the art around you. And sometimes I just like to sit there and watch people. I know I am so weird. However taking that museum aspect and transforming it into a whole collection is basically (actually this is just a super simple way to explain it) what This Is Not Clothing did for Collection III
This Is Not Clothing is a luxury brand and consumerist art movement. Artist Jam Sutton celebrates and reinvents masterful artworks, juxtaposing contemporary culture and fine art. The clothing is considered a wearable canvas, featuring original bespoke artwork prints onto ethical fair trade cotton.
Collection III takes inspiration from classical sculpture and modern protest. The collection features a series of digital sculptures created by Jam Sutton using 3d scanning techniques of real-life models. (Digital sculpture models: Jack Beran, Emelie Stenman & Joel Hicks. 3D scanning technology provided by Ten24. 3D data refinement by Ten24, additional modelling by Ben Douglas.) “It’s a way for me to exhibit my artwork in a way that’s different to a gallery or museum setting“, says Jam Sutton.
