MFA Boston to Debut ‘Kunstkammer Gallery’

Unbeige - Mon, 06/02/2014 - 12:26
Rare is the human who can resist a cabinet of curiosities—those bewitching, eclectic assortments of man-made and natural wonders that flout traditional taxonomies. The Museum of Fine Arts Boston is inaugurating one of its own in the Kunstkammer Gallery, which opens Wednesday. Among the objects that will be on view in the intimate space are exotic natural materials such as amber, ivory, and coconut shells; paintings on copper and hardstone; and virtuoso metalwork, such as clocks and automata. Follow up a visit to that whimsical space with a trip to the MFA’s newly renovated gallery dedicated to Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings and sculpture, which will also be unveiled on Wednesday.

Quote of Note | Annie Leibovitz

Unbeige - Sat, 05/31/2014 - 05:16
"My background as a photographer is as an observer. I'm a terrible director. The performers I have the most rapport with are comedians, who make up a very special group. They're sort of like manic depressives. I sympathize with them. They are usually also very intelligent. For me, the classic photograph of a comedian is Charlie Chaplin just leaning. That is such an extraordinarily funny picture. It's as perfect a photograph as you could ever have of a comedian. Chaplin came from silent films. The challenge for a photographer is to create a visually funny picture without it being stupid. It's difficult to take a funny picture." -Annie Leibovitz, whose images—from the black-and-white photograph of Richard Nixon’s helicopter lifting off from the White House lawn after he resigned as president in 1974 to the formal color portrait of Queen Elizabeth II taken in a drawing room of Buckingham Palace in 2007—are collected in a new SUMO-sized, limited-edition book from Taschen

Paul Giamatti as an Insane Museum Curator? Make It Happen!

Unbeige - Fri, 05/30/2014 - 12:57
Picture it: A Fellini- and Buñuel-flavored tale of a museum curator forced to face dwindling visitor numbers, harsh economic realities, his crumbling sanity, and...a giant sloth! We were sold on the premise of graphic novelist Paul Hornschemeier's planned animated short even before learning that the crazy curator, one Gordon Boonewell, will be voiced by Paul Giamatti. Saturday Night Live's dazzling Kate McKinnon has also signed on to the project, entitled Giant Sloth, which Hornschemeier is looking to fund through a freshly launched Kickstarter campaign. "Uncompromised by the studio process, Giant Sloth combines the psychologically rich world of literary graphic novels with the all the possibilities of motion and sound that animation allows," notes Hornschemeier. "It treats its characters not as clowns shuffling for an easy laugh, but as people. And as giant sloths. Giant sloths are people too." continued...

Cooper-Hewitt Appoints Brooke Hodge as Deputy Director

Unbeige - Thu, 05/29/2014 - 21:43
Curator, writer, and critic Brooke Hodge will join the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum as deputy director, a post that has been vacant since Caroline Baumann stepped up from that role in 2012 to serve as acting director following the death of Bill Moggridge. Baumann was named director of the museum last June. Hodge, who been director of exhibitions and publications at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles since 2010, will begin her new position on July 16 as the Cooper-Hewitt continues the countdown to its reopening after an epic renovation that will expand exhibition space by more than 60%. “I’ve known and admired Brooke since her involvement [as a guest curator] with the 2006 Triennial at Cooper-Hewitt, and I’m thrilled she is joining us at this critical juncture,” said Baumann in a statement released today. “Brooke will be diving into preparations for our opening later this fall, while partnering with me and museum teams on the exciting, future plans for the nation’s design museum."

Seven Questions for Jessica Hische

Unbeige - Wed, 05/28/2014 - 12:00
"The basis of any word is a single letter," says self-described "letterer, illustrator, and crazy cat lady" Jessica Hische, known for performing stunningly beautiful typographical feats for the likes of Wes Anderson, Penguin Books, The New York Times, and—be still our justice-loving hearts—John Hodgman. Among her latest projects is a stationery collection for the Luxe Project, a Moo initiative that pairs top creative talent with Moo's deluxe business cards, letterheads, and notecards, and then gives 100% of net proceeds to the designer's charity of choice (Hische's feline-friendly pick: the ASPCA). She made time in her busy, bicoastal—San Francisco and Brooklyn—schedule to answer our questions about the luxe letterforms adapted from her Daily Drop Cap project, her book jacket for The Circle by Dave Eggers, and more. For those not familiar with Daily Drop Cap, what is it and how did it come about? I started Daily Drop Cap because, when I left working at Louise Fili Ltd., I wanted an excuse to draw letterforms every day, even when I wasn’t being paid to by clients. I wanted a way to experiment and develop my lettering skills since I was about to step out on my own, away from the daily mentoring of Louise. Originally, I had planned on doing an alphabet a week instead of a letter a day, but decided quickly that I wasn’t up for a challenge that enormous at the time. I gave myself the goal of twelve alphabets, a number that seemed daunting but doable, and for a year and a half I drew a letter every single day. It ended up becoming the thing that really kicked my career into full swing and made people pay attention to the work I was doing. What did you create for the Luxe Project? My collection for Moo uses a selection of my Daily Drop Caps, transforming the original artwork into sophisticated monograms by switching the complex original color palettes to two-color. I chose letters that I thought would appeal to many people—sometimes the letters I created for Daily Drop Cap specifically referenced something I was doing that day and wouldn't work as stationery monograms— and tried to pick gender neutral letterforms when possible. The letters are integrated into simple but beautiful designs which could work for anyone, be they a designer or just a lover of letters. I used the typeface Router—which I love—made by a type design friend Jeremy Mickel. What led you to select the ASPCA to receive all net proceeds? I adopted my two cats from the ASPCA in New York and just love what they do to put misplaced animals in good homes. I'm a huge animal lover—it's embarrassing how much I dote on my two cats—and love supporting an organization that obviously cares so deeply about animals. continued...
