#CAMP piece 'Windscreen', created with paper, steel wire and frame, and a wall fan, on show in the Transformer Gallery at the BMW Tate Live Exhibition 'Ten Days, Six Nights' until 2 Apr. The artists - a collaborative studio founded in Mumbai in 2007 - has reworked the electronic pixels of a digital screen by replacing them with paper squares which flutter to conceal or reveal the subject opposite the screen. The studio examines how technology evolves, with a focus on invisible or overlooked structures underpinning contemporary life, such as electricity and surveillance.
NOW ON VIEW—Rosalba Carriera is renowned for popularizing the pastel portrait in Italy and France during the first half of the eighteenth century. No female artist enjoyed greater success or exerted more influence on the art of her era. A Young Lady with a Parrot (1730) exemplifies the technical mastery that brought Carriera international fame. The slyly subversive portrait subtly transfers the provocative gesture of baring one’s breast from the young woman to a mischievous bird, whose beak pulls back the gauzy fabric that edges the sitter’s bodice. Silks, ribbons, pearls, lace, flowers, hair, and flesh are defined with lightness and dexterity, exhibiting the assurance of the artist’s finest and most famous portraits. See Rosalba Carriera’s A Young Lady with a Parrot in Gallery 216A. #5WomenArtists
Throughout March we are celebrating women artists in our collection, and on view in our exhibitions— #AnickaYi , the eleventh winner of the Hugo Boss Prize has a scientific approach to her art making, and a desire to create work that engages all of our senses, not just sight. Yi catalyzes vivid fictional scenarios through concepts and techniques drawn from scientific research, creating installations that ask incisive questions about human psychology and the workings of society. Her solo exhibition, The Hugo Boss Prize 2016: Anicka Yi, Life Is Cheap, opens at the Guggenheim Museum Museum on April 21. #5WomenArtists # Guggenheim Museum Museum #HBP2016 📷 Scott Rudd
Maybe when you see some really beautiful... in the country or….
or read beautiful words… or hear them.
Then I think You hear an echo within yourself. Deep.
When I see something beautiful. There’s a moment or a second… …I feel it. That’s a moment I’ve taken out of everything. It stands out. But it’s when you’re re-
really quiet or…perhaps by yourself. Not with anybody else…but on the other hand. Yes.
Being with some certain person with no reason… It happens. It bursts out. It happens in a second.
Like a butterfly.
It’s a feeling that happens only very very occasionally. It’s very difficult to put in to words.
It’s a feeling with oneness with the nature. Oneness with the universe.
It’s a wonderful feeling…
I felt uplifting tremendously… I feel that She is listening.
When I’m in wide open spaces…
When I see a newborn baby.
I see it in all flowers… and creation.. landscapes, perhaps.
Flowers and how they are. In beautiful flowers…
In other people. In their behaviour and in their examples.
Clouds. I can see it in clouds.
I summer storm. When the lightning strikes.
Then I can feel something different. Made by me.
In me. When I see someone who’s done something really marvellous… or smiles.
When I’m by the sea. When You see new life coming in to the world.
In children. Everything in the right time.
It’s a feeling which…
When I’m in love.
-It’s a feeling of freedom.
