Rivington Arms is proud to present Closer Now, our first group video exhibition. Aran, Johnson, Ledare, and Uruma are not exclusively video artists, each work with other mediums including sculpture, photography, and performance. In these four videos the artists explore the duality of tension and relationships - between mother and child, artist and muse, life and death, grief and humor. The artist’s presence is integral to their work, either on camera or through their audible off-screen direction.

MiArt 08 è Art Now! Osservatorio attento e sensibile ad ogni evoluzione artistica, la Fiera Internazionale di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Milano si conferma luogo culturalmente privilegiato per l’attenzione dedicata alle continue novità del mercato artistico, alla dinamicità che lo contraddistingue, ai suoi cambiamenti rapidissimi, alle diverse frontiere esplorate dal mondo dell’arte.
Pur mantenendo le caratteristiche proprie, come la molteplicità dell’offerta, la riconoscibilità, l’originalità della formula, l’attenzione all’emergente e la centralità nel panorama fieristico internazionale, MiArt annuncia importanti novità, a partire dal restyling dell’immagine coordinata affidata a Pierluigi Cerri. L’incarico al noto architetto rientra nella politica di ulteriore crescita e sviluppo perseguita da Fiera Milano International, forte dei numeri della scorsa edizione: 37.853 visitatori, 235 espositori e oltre 12.000 metri quadri di superficie espositiva.
I tre settori di MiArt, elemento distintivo della manifestazione, rappresentano l’arte italiana ed internazionale dalle avanguardie storiche alla sperimentazione più recente, attirando collezionisti con interessi ed esperienze differenti.
Il Settore Moderno propone eccellenze della produzione italiana ed internazionale dal Futurismo alla Metafisica, dal Cubismo all’Informale. Il Settore Contemporaneo presenta opere di artisti ormai storicizzati a partire dagli anni Settanta, mentre la sezione Anteprima è dedicata alle gallerie connotate dal carattere sperimentale delle proposte. Al suo interno, oltre a gallerie di recente costituzione che promuovono artisti under 35, nell’edizione 2008 trovano posto anche i progetti curatoriali di Omar-Pascual Castillo e di Milovan Farronato.

TED | Theme | Art Unusual:
"Provocative, multidisciplinary and often technology-driven, new modes of art and performance defy their traditional definitions. These Talks celebrate artistic innovation as well as creative cross-pollination.
Photographer Gregory Colbert breaks the pane of objectivity to advocate for his astounding, but all too vulnerable subjects -- the world's animals. Game designer Will Wright, meanwhile, constructs virtual worlds in which players can make creatures of their own. The dancers of Pilobolus blur the boundary between two bodies, and Eve Ensler crosses a few boundaries herself by speaking bluntly about the body.
Golan Levin uses software to create experimental sonic and visual artworks -- a symphony of ringtones, for example. Vik Muniz's artwork -- made of chocolate, confetti and clouds -- challenges our perceptions and teases our imaginations. And Stefan Sagmeister shows how a little flair and an ardent attention to detail can do for design something indispensable: make people happy."
Inspired talks by the world's greatest thinkers and doers
"The provincial government of Capiz will launch on Monday the Philippine Arts Festival here.
The activity, with a theme: 'Aning Sining: Arts in Public Spaces,' is in line with the month-long celebration of the National Arts Month this February."

Dakar Senegal, du 9 mai au 9 juin 2008 prèsente l’Exposition Internationale avec artistes,le design africain,colloques et rencontres,les arts numèriques africains,Dakart OFF
"At the beginning was the Biennale of Arts and Literature. At the base ground, the willingness of the senegalese authorities to renew the great events which placed definitly Dakar as international crossroads of culture. The Dakar Biennale was also an answer to the request of the intellectuals and creators of Senegal and Africa for a periodical meeting, on the continent. A meeting that intends to estimate the state of artistic or literary creation, to seek ressources of quality production and conditions of a better promotion."

Puppetry and Digital Animation

…about Ram combines digital animation and puppetry to present anadaptation of Bhavbhuti's Ramayana.
It explores instances of 'human' dilemmas within the Ramayana, an epic in which Ram is usually a 'perfect' god."
The videos that are presented in this exhibition were produced between 2002 and 2007. Each of these videos combines a theoretical text that is written and spoken by the author and film footage – fragments taken out of different movies and film documentations. At first glance these videos remind the spectator of the videos and short films that are used today to transmit knowledge, to comment on the news, to spread religious and ideological propaganda, or to be used in the framework of education. One can assert that in our time video, instead of text, became the leading vehicle for transmitting information of any kind. Not accidentally the contemporary radical religious movements use video and not text to present their programs and ideas. The videos that are shown on CNN and other comparable channels are the main source of political information for the greater audiences. MTV videos are central for the development of contemporary pop culture. And YouTube made video the chosen medium for anyone who will communicate certain ideas or images to the whole world.
