    Michael on the Wall.

    INSPIRED

    From November 23rd, 2018 to February 17th, 2019, an exhibition featuring over 40 artists who have been inspired by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, will show at the Grand Palais in Paris. The exhibition, tentatively titled Michael Jackson: On the Wall, will be devoted to demonstrating the ways in which the musician’s song, dance, and choreography influenced the artistic world far beyond the music industry. Artists such as Andy Warhol, Isaac Julien, and Rashid Johnson, created installations, sculpture, and paintings that have been inspired by the spirit that Michael Jackson iconized throughout his lifetime. Glamourous, talented, and innovative – the artist life is celebrated in chronological order as you walk through the exhibit, to follow his transformation from a young boy in the spotlight, to the global popstar that he became. This tour will start in Paris, but will travel throughout Europe – you may be able to catch it in Bonn, G...

    Shadowmen.

    PIONEER

    Richard Hambleton was one of the very first artists to pioneer the city-as-medium school. Today, graffiti or street art is popular, ubiquitous, even considered a nuisance. In 1970, it was considered an innovative and surprising technique – shocking the art world and pedestrians in American cities. Hambleton, born in Canada in 1952, moved to San Francisco and then New York in the 1970’s where he began his first experiments in public street art. His work, Image Mass Murder consisted of drawing police chalk outlines of crime scenes around a volunteer “homicide victim”. With red paint splashed around the outline, these pieces looked incredibly real. He created the crime scenes in over 15 major American and Canadian cities from 1976 to 1978. Later, he developed his splashed, dripping, shadowmen figures as a response to the rise in popularity of figurative drawing within museums. These shadowmen were so stylized that they betrayed Hambleto...

    India Proud.

    PROUD

    On the 6th of September, India - the world’s largest democracy - made moves to protect and respect the rights of LGBTQ people. After years of petitioning the government, LGTBQ activists, as well as their legal representatives, have succeeded in overturning the oppressive constitutional law that made homosexual acts illegal, specifically criminalising gay sex. Section 377, written into the Indian Penal Code under British colonial rule, was modelled after the British Buggery Act of 1533, which criminalised people voluntarily participating in “carnal intercourse against the order of nature”. This archaic constitutional law, that aimed to violently police homosexual bodies, gave legal precedent for the jailing, discrimination, and mistreatment, of homosexual people in India. While Section 377 was barely used in a court of law, it remained in place to ensure a ‘norm’ of heterosexuality, establishing in Indian society that homosexuals were...
