ZEITZ MOCAA’S NEW SCULPTURE

Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) announces a riveting site-specific commission of monumental scale by Malagasy artist Joël Andrianomearisoa titled The Five Continents of All Our Desires. The installation is supported by Fonds Yavarhoussen, Madagascar, and will be on view from 2 August 2022 to 25 June 2023 in the museum’s atrium. 

Andrianomearisoa’s practice encompasses working in multidisciplinary ways — with materiality and scale as important considerations. Imbued with complex emotional experiences, his delicate, often ambiguous works are an ongoing series of ever-evolving exercises that consider the aesthetic and architecture of feelings that all perceive yet cannot put a name to.

Zeitz MOCAA Executive Director and Chief Curator Koyo Kouoh says: “It is a revelation and honour to host an artwork of this scale and ambition in our museum. The generosity and intentionality with which Joël approached this commission is a testament to the extraordinary, multiplistic views of our world for which this institution is intended. To hold, to speak, to listen and to love — sentiments and values that echo our mission are brought centre stage with this incredible work.”

The Five Continents of All Our Desires is a celebration of relations and connections. For Andrianomearisoa, the work speaks to both migration and language — and the ongoing search for zones of engagement and desire. He constructs a view of the world that is fragile, ambiguous, open-ended and about new possibilities for human contact.

The awe-inspiring work consists of six large-scale sculptures that form a suspended archipelago in a poetic reference to land masses and geographies of the imagination, and are constructed from Andrianomearisoa’s signature material, black silk paper. Installed in the figurative and literal ‘heart’ of the museum building, the work is the first site-specific commission to grace Zeitz MOCAA’s atrium in two years. 

The Five Continents of All Our Desires is conceived in dialogue with the concrete interior of the museum, and what remains of the original silos of the building,” adds Storm Janse van Rensburg, Zeitz MOCAA Senior Curator and Head of Curatorial Affairs. “It is both in play and in visual tension with its surroundings. Whilst appearing as large black masses, the thin and soft materiality of the work allows for subtle atmospheric responses to become visible —such as paper rustling due to airflows caused by human movement.” 

The Five Continents of All Our Desires is accompanied by a sound installation, and a display of 40 drawings — a first, significant showing of the artist’s graphic works in an exhibition. Visitors can also experience a set of specially designed furniture by the artist. Andrianomearisoa has further collaborated with the Zeitz MOCAA curatorial team and retail partners of the museum to develop an exclusive range of objects that will be on sale. All proceeds from sales will support the museum’s work.

The Five Continents of All Our Desires is on view in the Zeitz MOCAA atrium from Thursday, 2 August 2022. Zeitz MOCAA’s curatorial and exhibition programming is proudly supported by GUCCI.

LALANA EXHIBITION

The LALANA Exhibition is an entirely original and provocative art concept that is currently on display in the Miami Design District, which presents art as people have never seen- or used- before. LALANA is a design initiative that works with modern and contemporary Argentine artists to reimagine their original artworks as functional pieces bred in local techniques and noble materials. The exhibition features three textile pieces based on artworks by Roberto Aizenberg alongside a floor piece and sculptural chair by Luis Fernando Benedit

These resulting pieces have been hand-woven artisanally in silk and wool or built as prototypes from sketches, enabling new ways of engagement with the artworks which can now be used, touched, and inhabited. Designed for those curious at heart, this exhibition sets your inner child free.

Architect, designer, and visual artist, Benedit began his career in the arts in the early sixties. He explored Informalism and Neo-figurative art, and later approached the aesthetics of Pop with bright solid colors and a hint of humor. In the seventies, he explored the connection between art, science, and nature. A recurring subject in Benedit’s work is the historical and cultural identity of Argentina. Parallel to his artistic and architectural career, he designed a vast variety of interiors and every-day items, such as lamps, tables, chairs, and other furniture. Conceived as unique pieces, they frequently feature materials and elements that evoke this local imagery, from a modern and often satirical point of view.

Aizenberg studied architecture for a year before devoting himself to painting. He joined the workshops of Antonio Berni and Juan Batlle Planas, both Surrealist pioneers in the Argentine art scene at the time. Architectural structures and geometrical shapes would soon become a key element in the development of a very personal iconography, rooted in surrealism and metaphysical painting. Throughout a five-decade-long career, he worked in multiple techniques, including oil painting, drawing, collage, etching, sculpture and jewelry design. The objects represented, with sharp edges and muted colors often resemble buildings or towers, with endless rows of tiny empty windows, much like ancient monuments or abandoned cities. They are set in unlikely landscapes, where the earth is a dark and reddish hue, against huge bright skies in gradients of blue, green or yellow, which might evoke those of Aizenberg’s birthplace in Entre Ríos. Often, the central feature of these enigmatic compositions are multi-faceted shapes -resembling fans or umbrellas- suspended in space. In others, it is curvilinear figures recognizable as human. Treading a fine line between figuration and abstraction, these striking images arouse feelings of uncertainty and existential uneasiness. The impossible combination of these elements create dreamlike atmospheres, sometimes peaceful, other times nostalgic, but in all cases unsettling, like an unapproachable symbolic language.

GREG PAK – PLANET HULK: WORLDBREAKER

In 2006, writer Greg Pak along with artists Carlo Pagulayan and Aaron Lopresti crafted PLANET HULK, one of the most iconic stories to ever grace the pages of Incredible Hulk, and this November, Pak will return to this storyline in PLANET HULK: WORLDBREAKER! This five-issue limited series will take place a thousand years into the future and present a shocking expansion and culmination of the mythos of Sakaar. Pak will be joined by visionary Devil’s Reign artist Manuel Garcia.

Considered a modern Marvel masterpiece, PLANET HULK told the rousing story of Hulk’s time on the alien planet Sakaar after being exiled from Earth by the Illuminati. The epic story arc had a defining impact on Hulk that’s still felt today and went on to inspire spinoffs and media adaptations. Now, the saga continues…

A thousand years from now on the planet Sakaar, a young woman with green skin searches for the legendary Green Scar to help save her brother from a group of apocalyptic cultists. But which Hulk will she find? And after all these years, is he truly the Sakaarson, who will save us all — or the Worldbreaker, who will destroy us? 

“Working on Planet Hulk remains one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had in storytelling,” Pak said. “So it was a huge thrill to get the call from editor Mark Paniccia inviting me to dive back in. What makes this story feel so special is that we’re going back to Sakaar a thousand years in the future. That’s opened up doors to do some spectacular worldbuilding with mindblowing art from Manuel Garcia, Cam Smith, and Chris Sotomayor. And we’re exploring big emotional stories that pay off the huge themes of the Hulk and the Green Scar that I’ve built over many years through all my Hulk stories. In a time of change and crisis, what do we do with the power we have, and how do we handle the terrifying repercussions? A thousand years from now, who knows where those questions will take us?”

Check out the cover by original PLANET HULK artist Carlo Pagulayan and return to Sakaar when PLANET HULK: WORLDBREAKER #1 arrives in November. For more information, visit Marvel.com.

KELOW LATESHA – TURBO

On August 4, 2022, Kelow LaTesha has announced the forthcoming release of her eagerly-awaited new EP, TURBO due out in partnership with SoundCloud. Arriving on August 19, TURBO, in short for turbulence, takes listeners on a ride that provides a front-and-center look at Kelow‘s trials, triumphs and transformative experiences that have led her to stand tall as the woman she is today.

In addition to being named part of First on SoundCloud‘s 2022 artist class, earlier this year Kelow LaTesha launched a partnership with SoundCloud to bring her career to the next level. She shared the news with fans today on her social channels. 

Since launching the partnership, Kelow is rapidly on the rise – she’s been featured in Vibe, HipHopDX, Earmilk, and XXL‘s “Best New Hip-Hop Songs,” and recently released tracks have earned placements on coveted playlists across major platforms, including Apple Music‘s “New in Hip-Hop,” Spotify’s “New Joints,” Tidal’s “Rising” and others. 

Taking an all gas no breaks approach on the road to TURBO, Kelow‘s latest singles “He Ain’t Mine” featuring Asian Doll, “Titanic” featuring Goonew, and “Genius” all, in their own right, have quickly become stand-out releases for the DMV-bred artist. Released last month, “He Ain’t Mine” received co-signs as the ‘Best in Hip Hop’ for the week from outlets such as XXL, UPROXX, SOHH and more

Kelow continues her triumphant run as she paves the way to deliver what is set to be one of the most discussed projects of the year. 

Forget about the stigmas, labels, ideologies and pre-determinations of today’s hip-hop artists, because when you meet Kelow LaTesha, none of the industry standards apply. Born and raised in Prince George’s County, Maryland, the imaginative artist has had the desire to create since she was a child, where she often expressed herself through painting and music. Since then, Kelow has ascended to become a dynamic fixture on the rap scene with the uncanny ability to transport her fans both sonically and visually with a thoughtfully crafted aesthetic.  

Kelow garnered acclaim and a range of fans thanks to her definitive album TSA which was released in 2019 followed closely by TSA Deluxe in 2020. Songs like “PowerPuff Girls,” “Hammer Time,” and “The Real Deal,” showed off her ability to transcend genres and consistently innovate. 

Prior to the release of TSA, Kelow delivered singles and visuals as a creative director under the name BUTTA, opening up for acts like Metro Boomin. She also built buzz with the success of her EP Amethyst Stoner and its adrenaline-fuelled tune “Finna” that became a viral hit on SoundCloud. “Finna” was later transformed into a charismatic remix featuring Lil Uzi Vert.

Kelow is in the business of making music that moves you, makes you feel good and connects people. Her upcoming project Turbo is set for release in 2022. This is just the beginning.

Ann Carrington’s artwork via Dreweatts for use by 360 Magazine

DREWEATTS × ANN CARRINGTON

Dreweatts is delighted to announce that it will be holding a charity auction in conjunction with celebrated contemporary artist Ann Carrington, to raise funds for Royal charity ‘The Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild’. For the auction, the artist has offered a unique work titled Pearly Queen of St. James’s Palace, a large-scale piece encapsulating the well-recognised image of a first-class postage stamp.  The work is in white and natural acrylic and features pearl buttons hand-sewn by the artist onto a black canvas. It sits in a Perspex box frame and is estimated to fetch £10,000-£25,000 when it goes under the hammer in a public auction at wwww.dreweatts.comfrom November 1st – 22nd, 2022.

Commenting on this unique charity auction, the Guild’s Patron since 2003, HRH Princess Alexandra, the Hon. Lady Ogilvy, said: “I am very proud to be associated with the Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild as it celebrates the great achievement of 140 years of helping those in need. The Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild is so grateful to artist Ann Carrington for creating and donating this unique piece for auction, the proceeds of which will contribute significantly to the vital work of the Charity to provide more new clothing and bedding to those in need across the UK.”

On donating the work, contemporary artist Ann Carrington said: “I am very proud to have made this special Pearly Queen artwork for the 140th anniversary of the Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild. Hand-sewn from thousands of pearl buttons, each button represents the volunteer sewers and knitters whose hand-made contributions since 1882 have enabled the charity to grow and flourish. The iconic Queen image is symbolic of the Royal Patronage received by the Guild”.

Commenting on this unique sale, Will Richards, Deputy Chairman of Dreweatts, said: “Dreweatts are honoured and proud to be supporting the Queen Mothers Clothing Guild, one the UK’s longest established charities. Ann Carrington has created the unique Pearly Queen of St. James’s Palace, to represent the fact that the Guild was founded in 1882 when the Penny Black was in circulation. The auctioning of this generous gift by this internationally renowned artist, will help raise important funds for the Guild whose work, especially now, is critical to so many.”

The artwork is one of only 23 of its’ kind made by the artist, with the first one being snapped up by Jacob Rothschild for the Rothschild collection. One of the works was commissioned by Her Majesty the Queen, with her version being produced in red and gold. It was commissioned to accompany a banner also made by Carrington for Her Majesty’s Golden Jubilee.  Other owners of works from this series include Elton John, Lulu Guinness and fashion designer Paul Smith, who all purchased them for their private collections. Carrington is also the only fine artist to hold a license from Royal Mail to produce artworks in the form of the postage stamp!

The sale offers the opportunity to bid for a unique work by the award-winning artist, as each from this series is totally unique. Every head and shoulders image of the Queen is drawn out separately, then sewn with buttons that fit that specific work, which means that all of the buttons are applied in a different way. Colours are also changed depending on the particular piece. The works in this group are all named after different areas of London that Carrington has lived or has special memories of and this particular piece carries the title of the Pearly Queen of St. James’s Palace due to its’ link to the charity.

Ann’s work has become increasingly popular in recent years, with commissions around the globe for private collections, such as; HRH, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, HRH Prince Charles, The Duke of Westminster, Gwyneth Paltrow, Issey Miyake and Gordon Ramsay, amongst others. Her work is also held in many public and company collections including: The Victoria and Albert Museum, The United Nations, The Royal College of Art, The Design Museum, London, The Thames Diamond Jubilee Foundation and The Worshipful Company of Haberdashers, The National Trust, The Commonwealth Institute, Citibank, Waldorf Astoria, W Hotels, DAKS, Dunhill, Agent Provocateur and London’s fashionable Chiltern Firehouse.

The originality of her oeuvre is in the creative use of use of abandoned every-day items which are repurposed, as well as the use of multiples of objects to create pattern and interest, which is central to her function as an artist.  She explains that “all objects are saturated with cultural meaning which, as an artist, I seek to explore, unravel and investigate. Mundane objects such as knives and forks, barbed wire, pins and paintbrushes come with their own ready-made histories and associations, which can be unravelled and analysed if rearranged, distorted or realigned to give them new meaning as sculpture”.

It is being donated by Carrington to raise funds for the Royal charity set up in 1882 by Lady Wolverton, whose friend Princess Mary Adelaide of Teck (mother of the future Queen Mary) became the Guild’s first Royal patron. In 1897 her daughter, the Duchess of York (the future Queen Mary) became the patron, having helped her mother with the charity since childhood. It has remained under Royal patronage to date, having been renamed several times, including in 1910 when Queen Mary (on becoming Queen Consort) renamed the charity ‘Queen Mary’s Needlework Guild’ and in 1914 established St James’s Palace as its’ headquarters.

The charity, which makes, sources and buys new clothing, sleeping bags, bedding and towels to give to British charities (such as babies and children in hospital, the homeless and refugees, the elderly and people in hospices and women and children in refuges), still receives, sorts and distributes the clothing and bedding at St James’s Palace today. Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother served as their patron for almost fifty years (from 1953 until 2002). It was renamed again in 2010 as The Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild, its’ title today, as a tribute to her.

Speaking from The Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild, Hadley Denny explains: “The Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild is one of the UK’s oldest charities and from its’ foundation in 1882 its’ purpose has been to support those most in need. We respond to charities across the UK for clothing and bedding items that they have difficulty sourcing or funding themselves. We know that a gift of new clothing or bedding provides warmth and comfort, helping restore dignity and self-respect. Over the year The Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild fundraises in order to source and purchase large amounts of clothing and bedding and our many supporters and volunteers also lovingly hand make thousands of hats, gloves, scarves, clothes and blankets. Every autumn, as we have done for over 100 years, we hold an event at St James’s Palace in London, where we sort, count and pack all of the clothing and bedding, ready for collection by the various charities. Distributing in autumn works well for many charities as their needs are greatest in the winter months. We hope this generous donation of a stunning work by Ann Carrington will help towards our central goal, to help as many people as possible.”

Monster Energy × Dew Tour 2022

The world elite of skateboarding descends on the Midwest! Monster Energy congratulates Brazilian team rider Luiz Francisco on taking second place in the Men’s Skateboard Park final on July 30, 2022. In the night session at Lauridsen Skatepark in Des Moines, Iowa, the 22-year-old from São Paulo rose to the podium with a perfect run in America’s largest outdoor skatepark.

In Friday’s Men’s Skateboard Street final, 29-year-old Kelvin Hoefler from São Paulo, Brazil, secured a podium spot by taking third place against the world elite in a down-to-the-wire contest.

For the second consecutive year, the summer edition of Dew Tour was contested at Lauridsen Skatepark in downtown Des Moines. Built and designed by expert park builders California Skateparks, the competition-grade facility is the largest of its kind in the United States. Spanning 88,000 square feet in size, the concrete outdoor park – operated as a free public park – offers a technical street course as well as a vertical bowl section.

On two action-packed days, more than 40 male and female professional skateboarders and adaptive athletes from across the globe descended on the Midwestern city to compete in Street and Park disciplines from July 29-30,2022. The skateboard contest and festival were open to the public free of charge and broadcast live via web stream across various platforms. The schedule also included the Battle of the Shops contest, featuring skate teams from regional skate shops in a Street competition.

Here’s how the action unfolded for team Monster Energy in Des Moines this weekend:

Men’s Skateboard Park: Monster Energy‘s Luiz Francisco Takes Second Place

The level of progression was on full display in the Men’s Skateboard Park final on Saturday night. The California Skateparks-designed bowl course featured an array of pools, vertical extensions, wallrides, banks, and a centerpiece volcano for creative lines.

The roster of twelve finalists, including several X Games gold medalists and World Cup winners, hailed from three countries: Australia, Brazil, and the United States. Monster Energy‘s Luiz Francisco came to Dew Tour 2022 fresh off claiming the bronze medal at X Games 2022 in Vista the previous weekend.

On Run 1 of the final, the 22-year-old from São Paulo, Brazilian, put down a perfect routine stacked with his signature selection of technical tricks: frontside lipslide the deep end, huge frontside boneless off the flat bank, varial kickflip Indy, hardflip body varial Indy over the hip, frontside feeble grind the extension, kickflip melon over the corner, Indy nosebone, kickflip backside 50-50 pull-in over the center ledge, and frontside blunt earned Francisco 86.33 points and second place.

Also putting on a strong performance in the final, Monster Energy’s Kieran Woolley looked like a lock-in for a podium spot. On the strength of a perfect first run, the 18-year-old from Minnamurra, Australia, held down third place for the majority of the final session.

A perfect routine including backside boneless off the extension box above the bank, frontside nosegrind the vert extension, frontside Smith grind the deep end, frontside boneless the bank, giant backside 540 nosegrab, kickflip Indy over the hip, backside Smith grind the bowl corner, alley-oop frontside 50-50, backside air to disaster, backside wall bash the centerpiece, and Miller flip earned Woolley a strong 84.00-points score. But when the action moved to final attempts of the night, Woolley found himself leapfrogged by Keegan Palmer sliding into third place on Run 3.

Nevertheless, Woolley is currently emerging as an unstoppable force in park skating after claiming the gold medal in Skatepark Park at X Games 2022 the previous weekend and winning the bowl contest at the Copenhagen Open this summer. Keep an eye on this kid!

Men’s Skateboard Street: Monster Energy‘s Kelvin Hoefler Clinches Third Place

The Men’s Skateboard Street final on Friday night featured twelve of the world’s best street skateboarders, representing five countries: Australia, Brazil, France, Japan, and the United States. The field included Olympic Street Skateboarding gold medalist Yuto Horigome as well as Monster Energy‘s Hoefler as the silver medalist from the Tokyo 2020 games.

The rivalry was alive and well during the final session, judged on the highest scoring 45-second run out of three. But as the battle heated up, Monster Energy‘s Kelvin Hoefler was having difficulty stringing together a flawless run, while Japan’s Horigome and Portugal’s Gustavo Ribeiro dueled for the top spot.

Ultimately, Hoefler posted his strongest run on the final attempt of the weekend, thereby using his last chance to rise to the podium. In his last run, Hoefler landed fakie ollie switch frontside bluntslide the rail, 360 kickflip the bump, kickflip backside lipslide the rail, frontside tailslide to fakie the gap ledge, Caballerial frontside boardslide fakie the rail, kickflip frontside lipslide fakie the bump to rail, Half Cab nosegrind 180 the Hubba, and Caballerial backside tailslide fakie the rail for 86.00 points and third place.

Hoefler has taken first place in high-profile competitions such as Dew Tour, Street League Skateboarding, and in 2017 was included in the Guinness Book of World Records for “most wins of the World Cup Skateboarding men’s street world rankings”.

ANUEL AA STOPS HIS US TOUR

On July 29th, 2022, Anuel AA‘s record label, Real Hasta la Muerte, has announced that the artist has decided to postpone the dates of his USA tour due to personal reasons with the intention of resuming each and every one of those dates the following year, 2023.

The artist stated in a personal statement that his personal well-being is his first priority:

“As all of my fans are aware, I have recently been on tour in Europe. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the “Real Hasta La Muerte” fans who attended each and every concert. I love you!

I’ve been thinking that I need to take some time to recharge my batteries and focus on reorganizing my personal, family, and professional lives, with the intention of finishing my next album, which I was unable to do due to my European tour. My team and I have decided to postpone the USA tour until later in 2023. While doing so, I’ll keep doing what most excites me, which is to keep releasing good music.

Furthermore, the artist expresses gratitude to all of his fans, who have supported him throughout the entirety of his artistic career for years. The next year 2023, Anuel‘s team and his record label Real Hasta la Muerte will announce the new concert dates for the US tour “Legends Never Die”.

MAGGIE ROGERS – SURRENDER

On July 29, 2022, Capitol Records released Maggie Rogers new album, Surrender – the follow-up to 2019’s Heard It in a Past Life, which entered Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart at No. 1, landed her a GRAMMY nomination for Best New Artist and went on to amass over one billion combined global streams. Raw and revelatory, Surrender finds the acclaimed producer/songwriter/performer examining the most complex emotions with fierce, unflinching vulnerability and alchemizing that heightened feeling into her most joyful output yet. Download / stream Surrender.

Earlier this week, Rogers returned to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and performed her new single, Want Want. Praising the song’s “intensity and crunchy guitar tones,” The New York Times said, “this tale of long-sublimated desire-finally finds an explosive expression in its chorus: ‘And I want you.'” V Magazine said, “‘Want Want’ is a booming track, backed by a groovy drumline and Roger’s own powerful vocals.” View the official video for Want Want,” which Rogers shot in a NYC karaoke bar with director Warren FuHERE.

Hailing Rogers as a “pop music prodigy- an artist who’s in it for the long haul,” Rolling Stone said, “She’s someone who can command banjo-strummed roots music, streaming-friendly synth-pop, and anthemic arena rock.” In this feature, The New York Times praised Surrender as “a hypnotically danceable ode to ecstatic abandon, making leaps and navigating worry.” The Associated Press declares, “the new album only solidifies Rogers as one of the most interesting singer-songwriters out there-brash, confident, compelling and occasionally profane.” Consequence observed, “Surrender is a wholly open and vulnerable turn from Maggie Rogers- her writing has gotten all the more sharp and incisive.” SPIN declared, “(Surrender is) a vibrant and provocative studio album-(Rogers) proved herself as an impassion performer ‘with songs designed to blow people away.'”

The album’s first single, That’s Where I Am,” was included on Former President Barack Obama‘s 2022 Summer Playlist and “Best Songs of 2022 (So Far)” lists from Esquire, SPIN and Paste The video features cameos by David ByrneQuil Lemons and Hamilton Leithauser. Watch the clip for new track “Horses” which Rogers co-directed with Michael Scanlon HERE.

In the days leading up to the album’s release, Metrograph in New York City gave fans the opportunity to preview the album – and view three of the films that inspired it – with the “Surrender Film Club,” a three-night series of screening and listening sessions at the independent movie theatre. American Express Card Members had early access to purchase tickets before the general public to last night’s “Maggie Rogers, The Surrender Release Show – Presented by American Express,” a celebratory concert at Webster Hall on the evening of Surrender‘s debut.

After multiple sold-out headline tours and major festival performances in support of Heard It in a Past Life, Rogers retreated to the coast of Maine in early 2020 and completely cut herself off from the noise of the outside world. For months on end, she spent most of her time reading and resting and walking along the jagged cliffs, compelled by the fierce and unforgiving nature of the North Atlantic Ocean. Channeling the ocean’s unruly energy, she soon arrived at the controlled chaos and ecstatic physicality that would come to define Surrender. The album was co-produced by Kid Harpoon and Rogers and recorded in three distinct locations (her parents’ garage in Maine, Electric Lady Studios in New York City, Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios near Bath, England). Over the course of 12 unfettered yet exactingly crafted tracks, Rogers fully captures the frenetic intensity of the last two years of her life, bringing her bracing honesty to stories of anger and peace and self-salvation, transcendence through sex and freedom through letting go.
