Opened up my mail to find a beautiful set of postcards courtesy of Laura Uslar and Stanley Bloom who have started a photography platform called Velvet Eyes. The Paris based publication is focused on emerging contemporary photography and it’s wonderfully curated. I highly recommend adding it to your daily reading! You can also find them on Instagram: @velveteyesmag.

Ai Weiwei’s Playful Bamboo and Paper Kite Installation at Le Bon Marché

weiwei4

“Er Xi” (or “child’s play”) sees Ai Weiwei take on ancient Chinese folktales and traditional kite making techniques for the Le Bon Marché in Paris. The whimsical display covers three areas of the iconic department store, helping the contemporary (and sometimes controversial) artist/activist reach a different kind of audience. In addition to the storybook motif, Ai Weiwei incorporates narrative elements from various artistic movements, historical events, as well as his past body of work. Images below!

thestandingmarch

French artist JR and acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky unveiled their collaborative project, The Standing March, on November 29th and 30th in Paris. While the city has banned protests for security reasons after the recent terrorist attacks, the images of over 500 people were projected onto the Assemblée Nationale building as a form of silent protest related to the United Nations conference on climate change. The piece, which also features music from 3D (of Massive Attack), will tour from December 1-7, at various locations. Watch the short video feature (directed by Vincent Lorca) below!

Artist Profile: “Doze Green Arklandia Dreamstate” by Mike Popso

dozegreen

Great portrait of artist Doze Green by my buddy, Detroit-based filmmaker, Mike Popso. I’ve been a fan of Doze for a long time; his artwork was the reason I blind-bought albums like Deeper Concentration 2 in high school. A lot has changed since then! For the last five years he’s been living and working on a self-sufficient farm in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

In “Doze Green Arklandia Dreamstate,” Popso captures the vibrancy of Green’s new life and new work. His upcoming show at the Openspace gallery in Paris opens November 20th and runs until December 20th. Watch the video profile below!
