Christie’s London Edit auction featuring highlights of Marni’s SS21

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 12 giugno 2021

London. Christie’s Jewels & Handbags Online: The London Edit from 9 to 23 June will present four one-of-a-kind pieces from Marni’s SS21 Marnifesto collection, sold to benefit the Alliance of Artists Communities, an international association of artist residencies that support artists of any discipline in the development of new creative work. The selection of Marnifesto highlights will comprise of upcycled leather coats from the brand’s archives, featuring hand-painted words and drawings inspired by Marni’s community. The online auction is now open, with bidding starting from £100, and the unique pieces will be available to view at Christie’s London from 11 to 16 June.During the Covid-19 pandemic, Marni’s Creative Director Francesco Risso opened up a dialogue between the talents, photographers and creative consultants who have collaborated with the brand over the years, including Mykki Blanco, Jonah Hill, Michelle Elie, Julien d’Ys, Camilla Nickerson, Jess Maybury among others. Exploring creativity and new ways of working during lockdown, this epistolary chain served as the inspiration for the resulting Marnifesto collection, conceived as a celebration of human connections, love, freedom and self-expression.Once back in the studio, Marni’s treasured archives served as a neutral canvas, with previous collections upcycled and transformed into one-of-a-kind pieces, hand-painted with poetry, words and motifs collected during lockdown. Spontaneous brush strokes adorn these wearable pieces of art, beauty born out of challenges and an exploration of the future while paying tribute to the past. Rachel Koffsky, Christie’s International Senior Specialist, Handbags & Accessories: “We are delighted to partner with Marni to offer four one-of-a-kind, wearable works of art from the 2021 Spring-Summer Marnifesto Collection. Made during the pandemic, hand painted in the Marni atelier in Italy, each unique piece represents a Love Letter from Marni collaborators to Francesco Risso, the fashion community and the world at large. One year later, this collection could not be more resonant. The eclectic, hand-painted nature of the collection represents the do-it-yourself sensibility which came to the fore at the beginning of the pandemic. While some of us baked sourdough, or learned to knit, the Marni atelier used their craft to make sense of this uncertain time, and to heal the community. Reflecting this, Marni has dedicated a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Alliance of Artists Communities. At this time, we need art more than ever, and to support artists and artist communities in need.”

Nuovo album ”Tornasole”

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 1 febbraio 2011

Anansi (Stefano Bannò), partecipa al prossimo Festival di Sanremo nella sezione “giovani” con il brano “Il sole dentro” (di Anansi – Bannò – Fiabane).
“Tornasole”, questo è il titolo del disco, contiene 10 canzoni inedite e la versione inglese del brano di Sanremo, ed è impreziosito da importanti collaborazioni:  tre i featuring presenti, The Bastard Sons of Dioniso, il veterano del reggae nostrano Bunna degli Africa Unite e Frankie Hi -Nrg. L’album spazia dal reggae a sonorità più r’n’b/hip hop e contaminazioni folkeggianti, fino ad arrivare a pezzi rock più spinti.
“Classe 1989, trentino di nascita ma con genitori siciliani, Anansi fin dall’infanzia, dimostra un’inclinazione naturale verso la musica e in particolare verso la composizione, già a 9 anni  si cimenta con gli studi di chitarra, basso e percussioni e a 13 scrive la sua prima canzone “No Racism” che racchiude la sua propensione all’impegno sociale e politico.

Karaoke & photogra

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 25 ottobre 2009

We are constantly bombarded by images and information – at school, at work, in newspapers and on the web. All of these stimuli carry a multitude of underlying codes. Day in and day out, we navigate our way, more or less successfully, through a torrent of texts and images, subtle advertising messages and hard facts, official instructions and personal messages. New and long-established media alike vie for our undivided attention. What we tend to overlook is the fact that we are increasingly subject to a second, media-dominated reality in which we are no longer directly involved. The exhibition featuring works by Becky Beasley (GB), Thomas Galler (CH), Aneta Grzeszykowska (PL), Thomas Julier (CH), Anja Manfredi (A), Ryan McGinley (USA), Taiyo Onorato / Nico Krebs (CH/CH), Clunie Reid (GB) and Oliver Sieber (D) explores this densely woven tapestry of direct and indirect experience, of immediate and mediated seeing. It quietly flags up the relationships and juxtapositions that permeate our casual, everyday navigation of parallel worlds. The young generation of artists presented here draw their inspiration from found images and their own creative originality, mapping out new territory in contemporary art photography. In this context, the term Karaoke symbolises a certain pleasure in citing and trying out familiar patterns and styles. The karaoke machine invented in 1971 by Daisuke Inoue presents melodies and lyrics hesitantly at first and then with increasing confidence. In this popular, non-hierarchical form of entertainment, the serious and the light-hearted are never far apart. Singing along develops into individual interpretation and imitation develops into innovation. Main sponsor: UBS Sunday, 25 October at 11.30 a.m., artist’s talks with Thomas Galler, Anja Manfredi, Taiyo Onorato/Nico Krebs, Clunie Reid and Oliver Sieber will take place. The exhibition catalogue is published by Kodoji Press, Baden: KARAOKE – Photographic Quotes, edited by Thomas Seelig, 100 pages, with 121 shuffled visual and textual quotes from Ansel Adams to Slavoj Žižek, from Becky Beasley to Oliver Sieber and from William Shakespeare to Marilyn Monroe. Still on display until 15 November 2009 (Main Gallery and Gallery): Darkside II – Photographic Power and Violence, Disease and Death Photographed ( http://www.fotomuseum.ch/index.php?id=8&L=1 )

X, Y, Z, and U

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 6 giugno 2009

the franchiseLos Angeles until 3/7/2009 Outpost for Contemporary Art  6375 N. Figueroa Street –  curated by The Franchise winners The League of Imaginary Scientists  In December, apexart held a worldwide open call for 250-word proposals for exhibitions. Based on the idea of creating our own franchise, we wanted to hear from the participants why the franchise should come to their town. We invited over 250 jurors to judge this unusual experiment and, in the end, a proposal from Los Angeles stood out against the 456 proposals from 65 countries that were submitted.  X, Y, Z, and U is an exhibition and series of discussions and workshops featuring the mapping projects of artists whose creative practices resemble field research and scientists who use DIY tactics and creative visualization to map scientific information. Through community-based activities and actions, X, Y, Z, and U asks: Where is science and how do we interact with it? Who maps information and who has access? Can anyone participate in genomic research?  Participating artists and scientists include: Kim Abeles, Kelly Jaclynn Andres, Jason Bobe, Mackenzie Cowell, Liz Kueneke, Andrea Polli and Chuck Varga  The League of Imaginary Scientists is an inventive research collective. In pairing science and art, the League seeks to formulate new methods for data expression, embodied through interactions that produce physical artifacts and accompanying scientific residues.  The winning proposal comes from Los Angeles, CA:  The League of Imaginary Scientists is a group of interdisciplinary thinkers and tinkerers who present ambitious participatory art events with repurposed mechanics and scientific assertions. The League concocts micro-festivals for microorganisms, invites scientific luminaries onto local stages, and pours limited paper money into our bottomless pit of ideas. The resulting diversions from the everyday celebrate the everyday: past exhibitions showcased a communication device for talking to bacteria and a machine for reversing progress and returning viewers to childhood. League exhibitions simultaneously subvert and revamp the story of science. More than anything, the League of Imaginary Scientists is a consortium for ideas – a mental exhibition space where conversations and collaborations are hatched. We seek affiliation and guidance by Apexart because A) we do not have the know-how or funds to leap from independent art collective to independent art space, and B) the League was formed on a street called Apex Avenue in Silverlake in 2006. For our dream exhibition in our city of Los Angeles, the League proposes an exhibition of artworks that function as scientific research for studies without intentionality – purely for experimentation. Examples of the types of projects we would like to exhibit include art and science in the vein of research practiced by artists such as Andrea Polli, whose work includes a study on locust eyes, and Kelly Andres, whose mobile laboratory allows city-goers to listen to ecology, as well as groups like Harvard’s neuroscience laboratory, currently creating the first molecular film of an unraveled mouse brain. Aspirations for an evocative idea-oriented exhibition aside, the League gives great weight to the word, Apex. Our own origins anticipated an eventual peak. Perhaps this is it. (the franchise)
