I absolutely adore this part of the film. Everyone looks as though they had a blast doing this.
Because of my thesis, I am not post any entries for the rest of this month.
The Japanese Avant-Garde after David Burliuk
This change in the Japanese art scene reminds me of the Modern Art Revolution of the West with people such as Monet and Manet at the forefront.
Provided by the Museum of Modern Art, Joshua C. Taylor’s Futurism combines analysis, history, and love of the movement in this book. A stark comparison to Tisdall’s and Bozzolla’s objectivity in their take on Futurism. He concentrates mostly on the artwork created by the Italian movement and less on the other contributions. Since Futurism has a bit of a red-headed step child status in the art history world, Taylor devotes pages to defending it. For example, Taylor disputes the idea that Futurism consists of nothing more than a derivative of Cubism. The book has lovely reproductions of Futurist artwork and Taylor’s love make for a quick and engaging read.
I love Futurism. Their art, their passion, and their obnoxious behavior never fails to amuse me. Their manifestos show this wonderful sense of irreverence and fun that would continue with other movement such as Dada and Surrealism. On that, I am going to compare the two books dedicated to the Italian art movement. While British and Russian chapters of Futurism existed, the original Italian movement remains the most known.
Music to creep up and down to. Plus, the simplicity of this song charms me. Luigi Russolo did not compose a song so much as he went up and down the musical scales.
Wonderfully made by EdwardxRose. Makes sense to add electronica music to give that extra thump.
