Another New Babylon: Urban Legacies II

12:00 am in Conferences by bloc

Date: 5-6 October 2006
Website: http://www.anothernewbabylon.co.uk/
Location: wales

Outline:

Urban Legacies II: Another New Babylon takes Constant Nieuwenhuys’ Situationist theory as the starting point for exploring how temporary, informal and unplanned interventions by artists and creative practitioners are contributing to urban regeneration.

As with the original Urban Legacies in 2004, there are two strands to the event:

The Conference
A series of talks and panel debates over two days will draw on experiences from cities across the world, including Sao Paulo, Phoenix, Beirut, Tallinn and Kinshasa. Contributors include artists, architects, academics and curators who are leading new thinking on the role of art in transforming the public realm.

The Commissions
In parallel, a number of commissions by young and acclaimed artists will respond to the central theme of the conference. These include temporary installations, film projections and a new piece of music by composer Morgan Hayes, to be performed by the Music Theatre Wales Ensemble at the Senedd, Cardiff Bay.

For public and private property owners, urban planners, architects, artists and all those with an interest in urban regeneration, Urban Legacies II promises a wealth of new knowledge, insights and contacts.

Blaengar

12:00 am in Events by bloc

Date: 1-8 October, 2006
Website: www.blaengar.org
Location: wales

Outline:

Blaengar is a not for profit arts organisation set up by a small group of emerging artists around Aberystwyth with the aim to run events and exhibitions for Contemporary inter-disciplinary artists in Mid Wales.

Interaction is our first project, showing performance, sculpture, video and installation art. There is no direct theme to the event, but the artists involved in Interaction are concerned with the interplay between performance and the audience. Performance is embedded in social and historical contexts. Inspired by
Victoriana, the early tourist industry and contemporary themes, Blaengar artists have come together to create work that challenges our conventional ideas of performance, film and sculpture. Blaengar’s rationale is to be experimental, establish innovative forms of collaboration and seek out new sites for exhibiting work.

Artists include: Ami Marsden, Ffion Rhys, Chris Frost, Alice Briggs, Alice Owen, the Performance group White Rope (Laura Harding, Fern Busatill and Rebecca Jones).

The Suspicion of Beauty: New Romanticism

12:00 am in Exhibition by bloc

Date: 14/09
Website: www.basementartproject.com
Location: online

Outline:

BasementArtProject.com presents a new on-line exhibition

The Suspicion of Beauty: New Romanticism

Nick Goulis ! Dzenana Hozic! Alnis Stakle ! Arno Tijnagel

Brignell and Raimes ! Sheena Macrae ! Alexandra Crouwers

www.basementartproject.com

Skepticism and suspicion is often the expected reaction artists have toward naturalism. The idea of ‘nature’ in art has gradually changed its focus from the representation of rural landscape to the social context of a post-modern urban environment.

Works are produced concentrating on the value of individual experience, the exploration of intuition and instinct as well as the primacy of the imagination in artistic expression. The artist role hovers between participant and spectator, author and actor interacting with the contemporary world in which we live.
