Cultural and artistic co-operatives

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 9 ottobre 2009

Toronto  Wednesday October 14, 2009 – 6:30 pm  Istituto Italiano di Cultura – 496 Huron St., Free admission  Artists are individualists par excellence, competing vigorously with one another for scarce opportunities.  But, except for the “stars,” who are a minority, artists benefit greatly from community. For those lacking the  means to fully develop their work and bring it to the public, the co-operative form can be an excellent  solution. The speakers compare the development of these organizations in Italy and Canada. Larry Haiven and Judy Haiven are Professors in the Department of Management, Faculty of Commerce  at Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, Nova Scotia

Robert Stone: Polka Fever

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 28 luglio 2009

stoneLondon until 20/9/2009 Battersea Park Pump House Gallery Pump House Gallery continues its commitment to providing emerging artists their first significant London solo show with the presentation of Robert Stone’s curiously titled exhibition ‘Polka Fever’. Stone’s paintings, executed with a distinctive and eccentric painterly technique, weave whimsical scenarios – strange protagonists and their foolish displays of flamboyance are frozen in moments of time. An eclectic range of references and influences converge in Stone’s artistic practice from high end fashion, F. Scott Fitzgerald to Bryan Ferry as well as nods to painters such as Henri Rousseau and his primitive style, the vignettes of Edward Burra and the early renaissance Italian painters Fra Filippo Lippi and Giovanni di Paolo. These references emerge in the most peculiar of subject matter – fashionably clad characters parachuting, a gorilla being stood up on a blind date, women stranded on lake of floating pool tables and a gentlemen burning all his worldly belongings in a bath. Robert Stone was born in London in 1981. He graduated with a Masters from Slade School of Fine Art in 2005 and was selected for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries. He also took part in the artist residency project ‘Take Over’ at Pump House Gallery in 2007. Since then he has painted for intense periods of time, working primarily in Berlin and Zurich. Stone has work in private and museum collections in UK, Germany, Italy, United States and Tasmania. (stone)
