art and films

Stumbled on this site recently -- Open Culture.

This LINK is for the Art section.  Some wonderful film/videos. From Wassily Kandinsky in the act of painting, to a case being made for European cave art being the earliest form of cinema, to David Hockney in the act of painting. My favorite so far is A Brief History of  …

Appropriation or Homage? Feeback welcome (Just don't throw stones please, I bleed easily)

Initial statement when I posted this to Yahoo before Yahoo dropped videos made by seersucker suit wearers like me:

"When I first began experimenting making films out of my artwork and poetry I came across a product called Photoshow. This allowed me to create "fades" & other effects, while also utilizing captions. (At that point I was not savvy enough to figure out how to use a sound recorder and microphone.) I tried achieving the same thematic effect using windows movie maker, but…

Art Assemblage Advancing the Old

 As the art form of assemblage continues to captivate viewers and allure perspective designers, the discussion of art and meaning is alive and well under this seemingly random collection of parts and objects.

Uploading collage images

It's great to see all the activity on the site! We've recently had a tremendous number of new images uploaded so we're proposing some guidelines, because this is a group site for the global collage community with fairly limited resources... 

Please put a representative group of your works on the site and then, for vast numbers of images, put them on flickr, your website, or other image archive. You can then link to the rest of the images from your profile page or even on the…

To this end, I am pleased to announce the launch of the To The Power Of N: When N…

Interesting Article on Outsider Artists Describing Themselves

What, exactly, is outsider art? The label evokes a jumble of adjectives, from amateur to self-taught, shoddy to innovative, mad to genius, naive to prophetic. With this question in mind, we attended the 20th annual Outsider Art Fair in New York City over the weekend. Browsing…

appropriation, fair use, theft


Here's a link to an article in the New York Times about appropriation and fair use in the visual arts in a digital age.  The artist, Richard Prince, lost the case in Federal District Court but is appealing.
