The 100 Houses brings together a 100 artists, illustrators, and street artists in support of housing and homelessness charity, Shelter. Given the theme of ‘house’, each artist has produced a unique piece of artwork 10-inch square in size. This exhibition will open at the Tobacco Factory, Bristol, on November 16 and will run until November 30. The exhibition is curated by artist Paul Roberts.
Mobilia Gallery in Cambridge, MA, invited dozens of artists to rethink a humble household item: the teapot. While some produced lovely variations in traditional ceramics, quite a few thought way outside the, uh, pot. Louise Hill’s Upsidedownsized is a topsy-turvy brick house complete with furniture, lights and a tire swing. Wesley Fleming’s Mantis Tea Time captures some graceful insects in glass. Gerard Ferrari created a highly untraditional Robotic Bug with Claws, while Liz Alpert-Fay went more conceptual with a wire-mesh teapot complete with embroidered spill. The exhibit continues until November 15.
Why should we live if we must die? It is one of the questions Danish artist Nikoline Liv Andersen puts us in this exhibition. With a plethora of bodies, thick fabrics, flowers and fruits, life’s transience is reflected upon, man in defense against death and the body in decomposition.
Dubbed fashion’s ‘enfant terrible’ by the press from the time of his first runway shows in the 1970s, Jean Paul Gaultier is indisputably one of the most important fashion designers of recent decades. The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) will present The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier, the first international exhibition devoted to the French couturier.
