"David Bowie is" Exhibition

When we are talking about London's nightlife of yesteryear, ones will not be missed are the Punks and also a signature punk icon, David Bowie. The Victoria & Albert Museum has been given an unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive to curate the first international retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie. More than 300 objects will be brought together for the very first time, e.g. lyrics, fashion, photography etc. The exhibition's concept is derived from David Bowie's famous song "Heroes" and also a book "We Can be Heroes" which has the most detailed account of London's coolest people in nightlife.

The exhibition will start from 23 March and end on 28 July 2013. If you don't have a chance to stop by London for the exhibition, make sure you get a copy of "We Can be Heroes".

Exhibition details

Lan Wei

Constructions ceased, concrete buildings stayed. Anothermountaiman highlighted the "exotica of opposites between grey lan wei and bright dreamy fantasy folk" in his exhibition. A back translation of the word "lan wei" is broken end. How sad to see construction project which the end is not complete, well executed and giving false hope to people who are in need of such space that could be home or dwelling area to many.

Lanwei Exhibition by anothermountainman Date: 7.10 - 11.11.2012 Venue: Blindspot Gallery & Blindspot Annex

in memory of wu guanzhong

Master Wu Guanzhong's contemporary art piece is my all time favorite as I fall in love with his talented craftsmanship in Chinese painting and conceptual expression of the nature. He has donated another 33 paintings to Hong Kong and those would be exhibited in the Hong Kong Museum of Art from now till April 2012.

 

the future of a promise

What we know about the Arab world is quite limiting and not to mention the realm related to contemporary art of that part of the world. This exhibition called The Future of a Promise has a forward looking vision  which aims to explore the nature of the promise as a form of aesthetic and socio-political transaction and how it is made manifest in contemporary visual culture in the Arab world today.
