The Maeght Foundation in St Paul de Vence presents "This is not a museum"

"This is not a museum" is an exhibition that focuses on the interactions between performing arts and visuals arts.  "This is not a museum," is a sentenced borrowed from André Malraux, close friends of Aimé Maeght.

Included in the inauguration speech for the Maeght Foundation on July 28, 1964, this phrase embodies the vitality of creation. This exhibition, presented until March 2015, recalls the prestigious «Nuits de la Fondation Maeght», a series of events that featured writers such as Francis Ponge or Jean-Pierre Faye. It also pays tribute, to the artists that have given legendary performances at the foundation: musicians such as the free jazz prodigy Albert Ayler, Terry Riley, La Monte Young, Sun Ra, Cecil Taylor and Pierre Boulez, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Mstislav Rostropovich as well as dancers like Merce Cunningham, John Cage, Sarah Pardo and Jean Barraqué. Poets and philosophers such as René Char, André Frénaud, Jacques Prévert and Jacques Derrida have also succeeded here with their presence or their writings, some of which are featured in the exhibition. Thanks to a partnership with the INA, this exhibition will recapture the spirit of those encounters through many film and sound recordings also by Clovis Prévost.

Egon Schiele: the Radical Nude exhibition at the Courtauld

Radical Nude, an exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery in London until 18 January 2015 brings together a group of 30 of Egon Schiele’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short career. It is the first-ever solo Schiele show presented by a British institution. Schiele remains one of the the most important artists of the early 20th century and a central figure of Austrian Expressionism. 

Schiele’s technical virtuosity, highly original vision and unflinching depictions of the naked figure distinguish these works as being among his most significant contributions to the development of modern art. Don't miss this exhibition!

Madonna's ads were not retouched, says Donatella

Over the weekend, Donatella Versace spoke to the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera about her longstanding friendship with Madonna, the new face of the Italian brand's latest advert campaign. Donatella's comments included a strong denial that Madonna's gym-won abs and arms got the Photoshop treatment. "She did not have her abdomen or arms retouched," said the designer. At 56, "chapeau bas" to the Queen!
