Save the date for our next live #ArtTalk with the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

Formative to the development of the Hirshhorn’s exhibition Damage Control: Art and Destruction Since 1950 is the work of artist Gustav Metzger. Metzger, who escaped the Holocaust as a child in 1939 by fleeing to England, has influenced generations of artists with his concept of Auto-Destructive art, the direct use of destruction in art as a response to the self-destructive tendencies and policies of society. 

On April 25 at 12:30 p.m. (EDT) join the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and the Google Art Project for a rare opportunity to hear directly from Gustav Metzger, who will be in conversation with the co-curator of the Damage Control exhibition and the Hirshhorn’s Interim Director and Chief Curator Kerry Brougher and Andrew Wilson, Curator of Modern & Contemporary British Art, and Archives at +Tate. Send us your questions during the live broadcast!
#arttalks #MetzgerArtTalk  

Metzger was also co-organizer of the 1966 Destruction in Art Symposium (DIAS) in London, a month-long event that brought together artists from around the world who were engaging in destructive activities. Metzger’s work and the invocation of destruction in art remain as relevant and important as they were more than fifty years ago when he wrote the first Auto-Destructive Art manifesto.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (United States) mandated that girls have equal access to public school sports, among other issues. The ability to participate in organized sports and the encouragement to be athletes have  inspired women and girls to pursue equal opportunities in all of their endeavors. The determined women and girls who saw sports participation as their right and lobbied for equal access to programs are role models for all groups seeking equality.  

At the conclusion of Women's History Month, join us for an interactive discussion of the history of women and sports, led by the +National Women's History Museum - Administrative Offices
The program will use primary source documents and period images to explore the pursuit of equality through legal, political, and social means. Our guests include women's history scholar Dr. Bonnie Morris and Senior Director of Advocacy for the Women’s Sports Foundation Nancy Hogshead-Makar.

We are looking for 2-3 Middle School classes (kids of 10-14 years old) to join in. If you would like to nominate your classroom please fill out this form: http://goo.gl/0fjBdw
If you're not participating to the classroom, you will be able to tune in to the event page to watch live or later.

DevArt: Calling all future interactive artists

With 3 weeks to go, there's still time to enter DevArt. Last month, we opened up a call for the next up-and-coming developer artist, to be featured in the Barbican as part of the Digital Revolution exhibition, and seen by millions of people (http://goo.gl/8V93OE). If you’re a future interactive artist, the window to submit a project to DevArt is now halfway through!

So far, we’ve seen some amazing ideas--like Les metamorphoses de Mr. Kalia, a poetic digital adventure which features a character that animates to match a spectator's moves (http://goo.gl/oETbF3)...or Contact^2, which aims to spatially and acoustically map objects of different shapes sizes, with materials that will produce different sounds and possibilities for interaction (http://goo.gl/ppY9CI). 

In fact, within the first 24 hours of announcing the project, the DevArt template jumped to the 4th most popular repository on GitHub, and within the first week, the template had been forked over 1,000 times.

To get started all you need is an idea, a Github account and a browser to visit g.co/devart to show us what you would create. The contest period closes on March 28. From there, we’ll pick one creator whose work will sit alongside three of the world’s finest interactive artists who are also creating installations for DevArt: Karsten Schmidt, Zach Lieberman, and the duo Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet. The winning creative coder will also receive a budget of £25k and either a Chromebook Pixel or a ticket to Google I/O later this summer.  

If you had the chance to make your mark in today’s art world with technology as your canvas, what would you create? We’d like you to show us!

"140 caracteres" is a new online exhibit by +MAM - Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo: 140 works from the collection of MAM were selected to develop the theme of political mobilization and curated by twenty students of MAM's Curator Lab. Explore it here: http://goo.gl/28jzxj
  
Political mobilization by means of virtual communication is shaking constituted power. The language used for mobilization through social networks is also new. The slogans adapt to the shape of social networks. The social network Twitter is more synthetic, which accepts a maximum of 140 characters per message. Thus, the scale of language on Twitter becomes the thread of this exhibition. #social #art #politics

'Hare' by Albrecht Dürer is now available in #Gigapixel resolution!

Albrecht Dürer’s famous 'Hare' is the artist’s most famous study of nature and one of the finest in Western art. It is regarded as one of the most important artworks of the Albertina's collection, on account of its extraordinarily realistic depiction. 

The watercolor painting is so light sensitive that it can only be shown to the public every few years. From now on, everyone can experience the magic of this masterpiece at the most incredible level of detail at any time.

Phoenixes by Paulownia Trees by Kanō Tan'yū, who was born 412 years ago - Suntory Museum of Art. Kanō Tan'yū was one of the foremost Japanese painters of the Kanō school. See this work in high res & zoom in to enjoy the delicate details: http://goo.gl/jSbC0U

The phoenix, a mythical bird that has figured in Chinese iconography since antiquity, is revered as one of the four miraculous creatures, along with the unicorn, turtle, and dragon. Perching in a Chinese parasol tree (or, in Japan, in a paulownia), eating rare bamboo seeds, the phoenix appears in the world as the harbinger of a superior ruler.  #art   #japan   #phoenix
