SpaceX Project – Space Tourism

Mid-September 2018 brought big news for science and art alike: as its first private lunar mission, Elon Musk’s company Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) plans to send artists to orbit the moon. Slated for launch in 2023 aboard the company’s Big Falcon Rocket (BFR), the “Dear Moon” project is being backed by Japanese entrepreneur and billionaire Yusaku Maezawa, who intends to take six to eight artists with a range of backgrounds, from literature to dancing to architecture.

Palacio de Cristal
November 16, 2018 – March 3, 2019

Throughout his career as a sculptor, Jaume Plensa (Barcelona, 1955) has drawn on spirituality, the body and collective memory as the primary sources which tie together his visual artwork. Literature, psychology, biology, language and history become strategic tools in the creation of his work, and, through a broad spectrum of materials – steel, cast iron, resin, glass, water, sound – Plensa lends weight and physical volume to the components of the human condition and the ephemeral.

From light to dark

The first, elemental part of an artwork is the context of the colors or the color with which it is created. The way the colors are touching the basis is the second main theme in the artistic creation, whether formal, abstract, or realistic painting. As third dominant, an important creative component is, of course, the method of the color application: with a brush, with a roll, with a spray, directly from a tube, with friction, pressure, spilling, with a print technique, syringing, with a light projection, in a liquid, moist or dry form, oil, watercolor, water, pigment…
The colored structure that originates from the stated above, documents the direct touch of the artist with the media he works in. The transfer of colors and their previous state, regardless of the way in which it occurs, simultaneously represents the materialization of artistic thinking.
For each artistic work, some (mental) friction occurs between the artist and the artwork. Yves Klein has formulated the following: “Artistic creations are the ashes of artist’s thoughts.”

Fernand Léger
From 23 November 2018 to 17 March 2019
Tate Liverpool

 

This exhibition brings together more than fifty works by renowned artist Fernand Léger (1881–1955). Léger was enthralled by the vibrancy of modern life. His paintings, murals, film and textiles were infused with the bustle and rhythm of the metropolis. He drew on photography and new forms of communication that boomed during the ‘mechanical age’ of the twentieth-century such as typography, advertising and graphic design.
