The annual Nuit Blanche Festival in Paris

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Events on Monday 8 October 2012

Nuit Blanche – or White Night – is the French way of describing an all-nighter. But the annual Nuit Blanche festival isn’t just about partying, it’s about art and encouraging Parisians to explore the city from sunset to sunrise, guided by large-scale installations and projections, concerts and dances performances. Now in its eleventh year, the director of the Centre Pompidou-Metz, Laurent Le Bon, has come up with the theme, Paris à l’infini, and for the first time, has arranged for the city to open several major buildings and structures to the public so they can enjoy amazing, high panoramic views over the city. The best part is, it’s all free!

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Art on Wednesday 3 October 2012

French artist Soasig Chamaillard was raised as a Christian. In his new work, Chamaillard wanted to challenge quesions of ‘a women’s role in society’, so he decided to conscript the Virgin Mary. Restoring damaged statues that were either donated or discovered at garage sales, Chamaillard transformed her into a playful and more accessible pop-cultural icon better suited to our times. The pieces are for sale individually through his website.

New music by Chelsea Wolfe

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Music on Tuesday 2 October 2012

You know those afternoons spent clicking though the suggestion videos on YouTube? It’s not always a waste of time. It’s how I came across Chelsea Wolfe, an American-singer songwriter from Sacramento.

Taxidermy: bear (and other) essentials revitalised

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Events on Monday 1 October 2012

The mammals at The American Museum of Natural History in New York are coming back to (near) life. A team of taxidermists, conservators and designers have been restoring the museum’s diorama by re-coloring faded fur, refreshing background paintings and installing less-damaging lighting. Aptly, the renovated display is set to open on October 27, the same day as the 154th birthday of the late President Theodore Roosevelt, after whom the teddy bear was named.

Femen activists open their first foreign office in Paris

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Events on Thursday 27 September 2012

The Ukrainian feminist group, FEMEN, known for their topless public protests, was founded to fight against the sex trade in Ukraine. Now they’re an international organization. On Tuesday, they opened their first foreign office in Paris, and protested there the same day. Known for testing the tolerance of every country they campaign in, FEMEN’s ‘sextremist’ members painted such slogans as “Muslims Let’s get naked”, “I am free,” and “Notre dieu est une femme” (Our God is a woman)” on their bare breasts and arms and paraded through Paris’s predominantly Muslim 18th arrondissement.

Intricate miniature sculptures by Alan Wolfson

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Art on Thursday 27 September 2012

Alan Wolfson is upset that there are too few efforts to preserve New York’s architectural past. So, being a Brooklyn native, he shrinks into tiny hand-made sculptures. Each work, much like a doll-house, depicts a different grimy New York block, each with a story of its own. ‘There are never people present’, Wolfson observes, ‘only things they have left behind: garbage, graffiti, or a tip on a diner table, a half-eaten hamburger. The real impact of my work is not in how small everything is but in the stories these small things tell’. Using mostly plastic and cardboard, Wolfson works on each piece for months at a time, obsessing over complex interior spaces and lighting effects. There’s a haunting feeling to them, a glimpse of something long gone. To see more of his work visit his website.

Asian Snake Wine

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Food and Packaging on Wednesday 26 September 2012

Snake venom wine was first consumed in China during the Western Zhou Dynasty by practitioners and patients of traditional Chinese medicine. They believed that it promoted vitality and health. The snakes were preserved for their ‘essence’ and left to steep in a glass jar of rice wine, sometimes enhanced with smaller snakes and medicinal herbs. Traditionally, because of the high alcohol content, it was drunk in shot glasses. However, heavier drinkers ate certain parts of the snake such as the gall bladder, eyeballs and stomach. If you dare try some yourself, you can order a bottle at Asian Snake Wine. The expression “hair of the dog that bit you” just doesn’t seem… enough.

Occupy Wall Street illustrations by Molly Crabapple

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Illustration on Wednesday 26 September 2012

American artist and author, Molly Crabapple, took part in the one-year anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street Movement last week which saw Lower Manhattan once again transformed into a city under siege. Crabapple was ‘inspired to see people care passionately about inequality issues’ and rallied with thousands of other protesters. Like many, Molly was arrested and held for 10 hours in a prison cell. ‘Getting arrested for a social protest is like being put through aversion therapy’, she noted. She has since produced illustrations describing the experience, including her arrest, and promoting the ethos of the movement that has won her over. ‘I would protest again’, she says.
