Group show Taschen

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 4 ottobre 2010

New York, NY until 30/10/2010 POB 1157 Old Chelsea Station, Humble Arts Foundation 18 photographers from around the globe Curated by Jon Feinstein and Amani Olu  Exhibiting photographers: Pedro Arieta, Christian Chaize, John Cyr, Jessica Eaton, Tealia Ellis Ritter, Andrew Fladeboe, Anna Gonzalez-Huix Miro, Robin Juan, Jin Lee, Michael Marcelle, Samuel Morgan, Soi Park, Carlo van de Roer, Brian Shumway, Youngsuk Suh, Bill Sullivan, Sophia Wallace, and Sarah Wilmer
Taschen and Humble Arts Foundation are delighted to announce group show Taschen, an exhibition of 18 photographers from around the globe. Curated by Jon Feinstein and amani olu from an international open call, this exhibition follows Humble’s vision of fusing and collapsing photographic genres. Documentary becomes conceptual, portraits are “conceptual” or “process oriented;” and the notion of photojournalistic truth is neither entirely refuted, nor taken for granted. Among these artists, Brian Shumway and Sophia Wallace’s images similarly converge traditional elements of fashion photography with explorations of race, gender sexuality; John Cyr uses typologies of famous photographers’ black and white developer trays to document the near-death of the darkroom process, while Carlo Van Der Roer’s “Aura Portraits” question notions of social, scientific and photographic accuracy. As such, the ideas represented by these 18 photographers are more fluid than ever before, and when shown together, encourage viewers to examine photography’s tenuous future.

University of Vienna, Austria, 11 March 2010 EUA is pleased to announce that it will organise a special one-day event in Vienna in March to mark the launch of the next Trends report – EUA’s flagship pan-European study on the latest trends in European higher education and implementation of the Bologna process.

This event has also been timed to coincide with the next Bologna Ministerial Anniversary Conference, co-hosted by Hungary and Austria on 11/12 March 2010. The Trends 2010 report analyses the implementation and achievements of the Bologna process reforms in Europe’s universities over the last decade, and defines priorities for the next decade. This sixth report in the Trends series is the most far reaching in its scope in terms of the depth of the data on which it is based: questionnaire responses from over 800 universities, feedback from 28 National Rectors’ Conferences and 27 site visits to universities in 16 European countries.  Chaired by Eric Froment, founding President of EUA, this special event will begin with an introductory presentation on the Bologna reforms given by Georg Winckler, Rector of the University of Vienna and former EUA President. http://www.eua.be/vienna
