  9. Cultural Guide to New Orleans

    If you find yourself in New Orleans over the next month or so be sure to check out some of the wonderful art the city has to offer! First up is Raine Bedsole: Imagined Shores at Callan Contemporary.  Bedsole’s mix of ethereal sculpture and works on paper conjure up emotive memories of connections to the sea and the voyages that we embark on in life both literal and figurative.  According to the gallery, “across the exhibition, Bedsole’s fascination with the metaphorical voyage of life shines through. She is inspired by T.S. Eliot’s poem, “Little Gidding,” one stanza of which elegantly sums up ideas central to her work: “We shall not cease from exploration/and the end of all our exploring/will be to arrive where we started/and know the place for the first time.”

    For those seeking to maximize their art experience in New Orleans, the annual Art for Arts’ Sake event takes place on Saturday Oct. 4th from 6PM to 9PM.  Dozens of galleries invite visitors to come in and check out their current exhibitions. The Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans will be hosting exhibitions and a closing reception as well.

  14. Moving Image Istanbul

    With a loyal following in both London and New York, Moving Image is celebrating their inaugural Istanbul edition this week. One of many factors in choosing Istanbul for their new location is that “we are both huge fans of a number of great Turkish artists working in film and video, such as Nezaket Ekici, Gulsun Karamustafa, Şükran Moral, Serkan Ozkaya, Ahmet Ögüt, and Gizem Karakaş,” the fair’s founders, Ed Winkleman & Murat Orozobekov, explained. Digital art has majorly increased in popularity over the past few years, especially in Turkey, ensuring a promising start to Moving Image Istanbul. 

    Moving Image Istanbul debuts September 25 - 28, 2014.
