LACMA to Honor Barbara Kruger, Quentin Tarantino

Unbeige - Tue, 08/12/2014 - 14:21

Any number of lines from the films of Quentin Tarantino (perhaps the Pulp Fictional: “Just because you are a character doesn’t mean that you have character” or “Personality goes a long way”?) would look swell sprawled out in Futura Bold Italic by Barbara Kruger. The artist and the filmmaker will come together on November 1 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art as the honorees of its 2014 Art+Film Gala, the museum announced today. Further upping the Gucci-backed fete’s cinematic koan quotient will be Leonardo DiCaprio, who is chairing the event with LACMA trustee Eva Chow.

In other exciting film-related LACMA news, the museum is prepping the first major retrospective of the work of Pierre Huyghe. The exhibition, which is being “designed as a single, extraordinary environment,” opens November 23.

Hollywood Glamour Coming to MFA Boston

Unbeige - Mon, 08/11/2014 - 13:19

Sartorially speaking, the summer has belonged to the idiosyncratic, emotionally fraught fashion genius known as Charles James, the subject of exhibitions at both New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Menil Collection. The glamour continues next month, sans James, in Boston as the Museum of Fine Arts rolls out the red carpet for “Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen.”

The exhibition will focus on how jewelry—something of an MFA specialty—and clothing contributed to the style of major stars of the 1930s and 1940s, from Gloria Swanson (pictured here in a 1927 photo by Edward Steichen) and Greta Garbo to Joan Crawford and Mae West, who at five feet tall, got her kicks in nine-and-a-half-inch platform shoes. In addition to fashion (think designs by Adrian, Chanel, and enough satin to make Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz say assez!) and jewelry (including recently donated gems by Trabert & Hoeffer-Mauboussin), a “silver screen” in the gallery will play highlights from famous films.

“Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen” is on view at the MFA Boston from September 9.

Quote of Note | Paul Hornschemeier on Giant Sloths

Unbeige - Sat, 08/09/2014 - 04:03

“There actually is a prehistoric giant sloth on the campus of the college I went to, Ohio State. I think it was vandalized sometime in the last couple of years, but I think they repaired it since then. I can’t remember which school it’s a part of. I want to say it’s the geology school. Whatever museum it’s in, a lot of the signage and a lot of the exhibits kind of feel like these leftovers from the ’70s and ’80s. It just always felt a little out of step with modern times. It just kind of had this very particular vibe that really stuck with me. But I didn’t really have the idea for the actual story….There was always something about the giant sloth, just being this creature that its modern day equivalent is so puny and so inconsequential. It’s funny, when I mention the film to some people, they’re like, ‘Oh, that’s funny, like a giant sloth.’ I’m like, ‘No, there really were giant sloths.’ A lot of people aren’t even necessarily aware of them. They were these gigantic, huge, powerful things the size of bears. So there was always a metaphor there in the back of my head.”

-Paul Hornschemeier on the slothful inspiration for his animated feature-in-the-making, Giant Sloth, starring Paul Giamatti as an insane museum curator

Watch: The Mesmerizing Making of Hand-Painted Street Ads

Unbeige - Fri, 08/08/2014 - 20:23

In a sea of glossy billboards and digital signage, a hand-painted mural can stop you in your tracks. Many of the most strikingly photorealistic ones are the work of Colossal Media, which has whipped out the paintbrushes and scaffolding for companies ranging from Disney and Pepsi to Marc Jacobs and Comme des Garçons. The Motion Picture Association of America’s The Credits has captured some of the company’s painters at work, as they use hand-painted murals to prepare the world for the second coming of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We think both Leonardo and his namesake would approve.

Smells Like…Architects! Sneak Peek at New Scent from Arquiste

Unbeige - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 13:20

Lions travel in prides and coyotes in bands, while owls gather wisely in parliaments and crows take flight in murders that are only occasionally bloody. But what is the appropriate collective when referring to architects? A pilaster of architects, perhaps? Or a cantilever? A keystone, maybe, or a spandrel? Mexican-born, New York-based Carlos Huber has settled on club, presumably the kind for belonging to rather than brandishing. The architect-turned-fragrance entrepreneur, who holds a master’s in historic preservation from Columbia, is preparing to launch the latest addition to his Arquiste line of scents: “The Club of Architects,” a woody-vanilla blend created by perfumer Yann Vasnier. The fragrance, now available for pre-order from the fine-smelling people at Aedes De Venustas, is meant to evoke a group of architects gathering in days gone by for a drink (or six) in the Fumoir Bar at Claridge’s in London. Think Art Deco splendor—dark woods, leather, velvet—meets gin fizz, a splash of citrus, and peals of laughter.
