At the heart of the hotel, The Terrace Restaurant delights guests with a new nine-dish menu curated by acclaimed chef Athinagoras Kostakos, famed for his modern Greek Meraki restaurant in London and time as Head Chef at the award-winning ‘Bill and Coo’, a fine-dining restaurant in Mykonos. On balmy nights, guests can dine on Aegean-inspired delights such as a classic, fresh Bebek Hotel Greek salad or a mouth-watering and cooling shrimp carpaccio.

The hotel’s chic seasonal rooftop bar is also re-opening for the summer as the place to go for sophisticated signature cocktails and a DJ-led soundtrack.

Turkish contemporary artist Devrim Erbil is revealing his Renk Erbil-curated, nature-inspired Primavera exhibition—Primavera meaning spring—from 30 April until 15 June 2022 at The Stay Warehouse.

Born in Usak, Balikesir in 1937, Devrim Erbil has had a long and illustrious career both as an artist and a professor and director of prestigious fine art academies across Europe. Erbil’s retrospective of mixed media pieces that have been exhibited around the globe includes oil paintings, silk prints, sculptures and stained glass in exquisite colors. The artist is particularly famed for his abstract landscape paintings depicting Anatolia and Istanbul, for which he was honored with the Presidential Culture and Arts Grand Award, which recognizes distinguished Turkish figures. In 2004, the Devrim Erbil Contemporary Art Museum opened in Balikesir, honoring the area’s beloved local artist. His works have been exhibited internationally, from the Saatchi Gallery in the UK, Spain—where he was named Young Painter of the Year—to Budapest as well as all over Turkey, from Istanbul to Bodrum, Ankara and Izmir.

About Memphis Milano

The first collection of 55 products of the Memphis-Milano brand, under the guidance of Ettore Sottsass and the artistic direction of Barbara Radice, was presented in Milan on September 19, 1981 at the Arc ’74 showroom of Brunella and Mario Godani at number 2 Corso Europa. This was the period of the Salone del Mobile, and more than 2,000 people crowded outside the gallery, blocking the city traffic, for what immediately felt like an epoch-making event. The new language mixed elegance and kitsch, dialoguing with absurd and irrational shapes, using plastic laminates with patterns that simulate precious materials, but most of all it introduced the pleasure of play into the rational language of industrial production: Memphis-Milano quickly conquered public press and attention from all over the world.

Rolls-Royce Dubai edition inside 360 MAGAZINE

ROLLS-ROYCE MOTOR CARS DUBAI

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai is accustomed to innovative artforms, and the new Carbon Veil is an exquisite addition to the Phantom Gallery. The construction technique, which involves applying 150 carbon fiber sheets, is genuinely ground-breaking; the result is ultra-stylish, contemporary and beautiful, and perfectly attuned to the aesthetic sensibilities of the Emirate of Dubai.”

Mamdouh Khairallah, General Manager, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai, AGMC

“It required a huge amount of experimentation to produce the Carbon Veil Gallery. The main challenge in creating the shape was ensuring that the weave of the carbon fibre remained horizontal and parallel throughout. It had to be perfect – because this is a Rolls‑Royce.”

Alastair Gibson, carbon fiber artist, and sculptor

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai, AGMC, is delighted to present a truly remarkable example of Bespoke artwork created for the marque’s pinnacle product, Phantom. The Carbon Veil has been specially developed for the Gallery area in the fascia, a feature unique to Phantom, where owners can choose to display an original work of art or design.

The Carbon Veil, which took two years to create, is made from carbon fibre. For most automotive applications, just three or four layers are used. For Rolls-Royce Phantom, no fewer than 150 sheets were permeated with resin and compressed to form a single, solid billet.

The work was commissioned and designed by the Rolls‑Royce Bespoke Collective based at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England, and realized by artist and sculptor Alastair Gibson, who combines knowledge and expertise gained in Formula 1 to create his carbon-fiber masterpieces.

The Carbon Veil introduces a highly contemporary note to Phantom’s interior, with sharp, angular surfaces and the distinctive woven surface synonymous with innovation, technology and performance. Depending on the client’s preference, the carbon fibre is finished in either clear or matte lacquer which brings out the weave pattern and protects it from harmful ultra-violet rays. The whole piece is sealed under a single pane of glass.

Each Phantom Gallery is individually assembled in the Clean Room at Goodwood. Completed in 2020, this medical-grade facility provides a 100% sterile environment where Bespoke items and other delicate components can be produced entirely free of dust and particles.

The gunmetal exterior is bolstered with an iced finish with gunmetal contrast bonnet, while the coachline and waftline are accented in a vivid mandarin orange. At the helm of the bonnet proudly stands the Spirit of Ecstasy crafted from carbon fibre.

Within the interior, the anthracite brightwork provides moments of contrast, along with the colour-keyed rotary controls and leather detailing. The dark tones and light leather flourishes beautifully accent the Veil Gallery upon the Phanton’s fascia. The flawless Black Pack elements on the exterior include an alluring black trim on the windows, the grille and the exhausts.

The Gallery is a space protected behind glass. This space affords the opportunity to introduce sharp and aggressive forms, which are unprecedented for a vehicle interior. The design of the faceted milled carbon fibre sculpture was originally inspired by the angular, aggressive, stealthy shapes of the 118 WallyPower.

The very attitude and nature of the Gallery has been extended to the other Bespoke details on both the exterior and interior of the Phantom it resides within. With a highly contemporaneous edge, the vehicle exemplifies the spectrum of Bespoke potential, with Phantom as a canvas quite like no other.

Alastair Gibson’s artwork is highly prized by collectors in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and in his native South Africa, and can be viewed in galleries around the world.

Court Retouching Final via Reebok for use by 360 Magazine

Carson Boys & Girls Club Basketball Court

On Tuesday, March 22, Reebok, in collaboration with Boys & Girls Clubs of America and non-profit Project Backboard, unveiled a revamped basketball court for the members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carson, California. The repaired playing surface and a custom butterfly mural share Reebok’s “Life is Not a Spectator Sport” message and the mission of its youth physical activity program, BOKS, encouraging kids to get active and to connect with life and one another. Boys & Girls Clubs of Carson, California, located 20 miles south of Los Angeles, serves 5,400 youth in Carson, Gardena, and South Los Angeles.

Last month, Reebok launched “Life is Not a Spectator Sport,” a bold new global brand campaign designed to inspire people to pursue their passions, celebrate their individuality and become active participants in the world around them.

“‘Life is Not a Spectator Sport’ is an especially important message for kids,” said Caroline Machen, Vice President, Global Brand Marketing at Reebok Design Group. “Enhancing the game of basketball has always been a part of Reebok’s DNA and we’re excited to bring this message to their home court in a way that makes sense for them. Even if it’s one Club or community at a time, if we continue to do the work, we can help build a more connected, active, and creative generation.” 

Realizing the varying needs of families within the community, Boys & Girls Clubs of Carson help ignite the unlimited potential of kids and teens by creating safe, inclusive, and engaging environments. 

“The ongoing pandemic has sidelined our kids for far too long,” commented Boys & Girls Clubs of Carson CEO Kim Richards. “I can’t think of a better way to get kids back in the game than having our clubhouse basketball court transformed thanks to the generosity of Reebok and Project Backboard. These renovations are a slam dunk toward our vision to provide equitable access to sports and fitness for kids in our under-resourced community.”

Executed by Project Backboard, whose mission is to renovate courts to help strengthen communities and encourage multi-generational play, the months-long revamp entailed sourcing brand new portable basketball hoops, repairing surface cracks and bumps, applying new layers of sealant for durability, and painting a beautiful butterfly mural designed by artist Shannon Peel.

“The butterfly is a symbol of metamorphosis and growth, which is central to Reebok’s ‘Life is Not a Spectator Sport’ message,” added Peel. “We wanted to integrate elements that represent energy, movement, strength, and effort, while maintaining a functional playing space that does not distract the kids during play, but rather supports them.”

This Tuesday, Reebok and Club staff presented the revived space to its members for the first time. As part of the unveil, kids and staff received new pairs of Reebok sneakers before enjoying a virtual discussion with Reebok leaders and remarks by local elected officials Jawane Hilton and Cedric L. Hicks Sr., followed by mini-games and activities on their new court.

“This sports court is special because it reminds Club youth that achieving their goals is truly possible by getting out of the stands and actively participating in life—both on the court and off,” continued Richards.

Through brand initiatives like BOKS and its Human Rights Award, and partnerships with key organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Reebok continues to build upon its mission to support communities’ needs, empower the underserved, increase inclusivity, inspire movement, and expand access to play, through 2022 and beyond.For more on Reebok’s “Life is Not a Spectator Sport” platform, click HERE.

Painting by Meg Lionel Murphy via The Untitled Space for use by 360 MAGAZINE

MEG LIONEL MURPHY × TRAUMATICA DRAMATICA

LAST DAYS TO VIEW MEG LIONEL MURPHY’s “TRAUMATICA DRAMATICA”

The exhibition is on display from June 5th to July 3rd, 2021 at The Untitled Space in New York City.

Curated by Indira Cesarine, “Traumatica Dramatica” debuts the latest series of Murphy’s vibrant and emotionally charged paintings. Lionel Murphy’s paintings are directly influenced by her own personal experiences, as she copes with debilitating PTSD from severe domestic violence. She works out of a little blue shack in a junkyard on her family’s property in Wisconsin, where she paints detailed, vivid works on paper and panel depicting heartbroken giants that magically grow larger, stronger, and scarier than the world around them. Forbes has also recently featured Meg Lionel Murphy’s “Traumatica Dramatica”. Read their full article HERE.

Her solo exhibition “Traumatica Dramatica” addresses violence against women from her own perspective as well as the historical precedent of emotional and physical violence against women throughout the canon of art history. “The idea of violence haunts me, and I try to etch that subject into even the pinkest of paint,“ she has stated of her visceral portraits. Lionel Murphy depicts through her vivid brush strokes and intricate imagery a reverie through which the viewer can get lost with each poetic detail. Her paintings of the female form as giantess unconquerable figures address their experiences of pain, trauma, and healing as well as their interactions with the environments they consume as they assert their power. Her work depicts a reverence for fragility and humanity while examining questions about whiteness, gender, sexuality, class, sacrifice, pain, sickness, loneliness, and most of all—violence and its haunting memories.

Head over to Artsy to check out the viewing room for “Traumatica Dramatica” by artist Meg Lionel Murphy.

Mare Monstrum/Drown in My Magic, a digital exhibition by David Uzochukwu on Artsy for use via 360 Magazine

David Uzochukwu – Mare Monstrum/Drown in My Magic

Mare Monstrum/Drown in My Magic, a digital exhibition by David Uzochukwu on Artsy

2016 – ongoing.
Italy, Senegal, Germany

Artist statement:

Mare Monstrum / Drown In My Magic channels the power of myth by explicitly visualizing Black merfolk. It envisions water as expanse which the characters can cut through, be safe in. No longer are they subject to whims of the tide, or drift into a void that holds the potential for destruction. Instead, the portrayed are equipped to survive and find freedom in the monstrous.

It almost seems as though Blackness is inevitably linked to a passage through the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, Evros River, whether historic or recent. The potential of self-actualisation lapping at someone’s feet always calls to mind the blood, sweat and tears of those who have come before them. Can new lore shift the entanglement of Black bodies and their environments, making unquestionably clear that they belong?

About the series:

David Uzochukwu’s photographs deliver you into warm and sensitive worlds where humans and nature entwine in search of belonging. Expanses of sand, water or sky embrace Black bodies emanating strength and resilience. Often their limbs morph into fantastical forms against hyper-real landscapes that offer a space for contemplation or escape. It’s this interplay between the natural and supernatural, between the visible and invisible, that imbues the artist’s images with an arresting presence.

Uzochukwu’s ongoing body of work, Mare Monstrum / Drown In My Magic, uses the central idea of Black mermaids to explore both the historical relationship between the African diaspora and the water, and contemporary politics around illegal migration. A great part of the images were made in Senegal in 2018 and show mermen emerging from the seas protecting and healing one another. The most recent images came together in Germany and introduce a whole community of hybrid merfolk in states of solace and rebirth. An incubated baby, a proud centaur and a tender couple, among others, inhabit a boundless realm.

The Austrian-Nigerian artist was born in 1998 in Innsbruck. His photographic practice began as a teenager with intimate self-portraiture that soon gained recognition. He’s enjoyed collaborations with artists including FKA Twigs, Pharrell Williams, Ibeyi and Iris van Herpen. Since joining Galerie Number 8, he’s exhibited at Bozar, Photo Vogue Festival, Unseen Amsterdam, Off Biennale Dakar and LagosPhoto. He was named ‘One to Watch’ by the British Journal of Photography in 2020, and his first co-directed short film, Götterdämmerung, was selected for Max-Ophüls-Preis in 2021. He is currently studying philosophy at HU Humboldt University of Berlin.

“The long history of oppression experienced by people of color in the West makes an unlikely context for art devoted to the fantastical. All the more so when you consider recent developments such as the racist rhetoric and anti-immigration policies of the Trump administration, the chilling roll call of African-Americans killed by US police (Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, Philando Castile) and the bigotries unleashed in Britain by Brexit (monkey chants at football matches and a spike in xenophobic hate crimes). Under such conditions, it’s worth asking if a turn to the fantastic by black artists is driven by a desire to escape from the charged and painful circumstances of daily life. Yet the opposite seems to be true. What characterizes much of the imagery being produced today is an eagerness to grapple with urgent questions of culture, identity and history– albeit through imagery that accentuates the extraordinary rather than the everyday. (…)

Ultimately, the Berlin-based David Uzochukwu – whose recent Drown in my Magic project situates a panoply of mythical water creatures within arid landscapes – may speak for all the artists currently finding inspiration in fantasy. The goal, as Uzochukwu puts it, is to reclaim the narrative of fantasy’ by embracing ‘the alien otherness projected onto black bodies in a way that could be read as pure empowerment.’”
-Extract of the essay “A Fantastic Turn” by Ekow Eshun for Unseen Magazine.

Drown in My Magic will go live starting April 16th 2021 on Artsy HERE.
