French artist JR makes Louvre pyramid disappear in an optical illusion

JR has chosen the biggest gallery in the world to showcase his art: public spaces. For some ten years now, the artist’s monumental photographic pastings have been popping up on the walls of cities in all four corners of the globe. “The most important thing,” he ex-plains, “is where I put my photos and the meaning they take on depending on the place.” Whether it be the Middle East, the favelas of Rio, slums of Kenya, New York, Le Havre, or Shanghai, JR’s works leave no one indifferent, because they cut to the very heart of our innermost selves. His spectacular mode of intervention pos-es questions about artistic creation, the role of images in the age of globalization, and their widespread use, from intimate circles to mass distribution. Invited by the “biggest museum in the world”, JR has set his sights on one of the Louvre’s symbols, the Pyramid, which

Rare Shakespeare first edition sold for nearly £2m

A rare first edition of British playwright William Shakespeare's works from 1623 sold for £1.87 million (2.46 million euros, $2.75 million) at Christie's on Wednesday, the auction house said. A private US collector bought the book as well as three subsequent Shakespeare collected works from 1632, 1664 and 1685 for a total of £2.48 million. "The universality and timelessness of Shakespeare's insight into human nature continues to engage and enthrall audiences the world over," Margaret Ford, international head of books and manuscripts for Christie's, said in a statement. Ford said earlier: "It is deeply moving to handle the first printed record of his collected plays and to be reminded of their tremendous impact." The book, known as a First Folio, was published just seven years after Shakespeare's death. Around 750 copies are believed to have been printed and only around 200

Ancient Chinese pottery reveals 5,000-yr-old beer brew

Residue on pottery from an archeological site has revealed the earliest evidence of beer brewing in China left from a 5,000-year-old recipe, researchers said Monday. The artifacts show that people of the era had already mastered an "advanced beer brewing technique" that contained elements from East and West, according to a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a peer-reviewed US journal. Yellowish residue gleaned from pottery funnels and wide-mouthed pots show traces of ingredients that had been fermented together -- broomcorn millet, barley, a chewy grain known as Job's tears, and tubers. "The discovery of barley is a surprise," lead author Jiajing Wang of Stanford University told AFP, saying it is the earliest known sign of barley in archeological materials from China. "This beer recipe indicates a mix of Chinese and Western traditions -- barley from the West; millet, Job's tears and tubers from China." The

Indiana University and Uffizi Gallery partner to digitize collection in 3-D

A cooperative agreement between Indiana University and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, will result in an unprecedented initiative to digitize in 3-D the museum's entire collection of 1,250 pieces of irreplaceable Greek and Roman sculpture. The project between the Uffizi, one of the oldest and most renowned art museums in the world, and IU's Virtual World Heritage Laboratory will create high-resolution 3-D digital models of the Uffizi sculptures and make them freely available online by IU’s bicentennial in 2020. The Uffizi collection is located at the gallery as well as the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, other famous cultural sites in Florence. The 1,250 works of art comprise the third largest collection of its kind in an Italian state museum. Largely assembled by the Medici family from the 15th to the 18th centuries, the sculptures include some of the most admired classical antiquities in the history of art, notably t

Marion Ackermann announced as the new Director General of Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden

Saxony's Minister for the Arts, Dr Eva-Maria Stange, introduced Dr Marion Ackermann as the new Director General of Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden to the public today in Dresden. Marion Ackermann will take up the post on 1 November 2016, and will, as Director General, be responsible for overseeing the directors of the 14 museums. "We are delighted that Marion Ackermann is exchanging the Rhine for the Elbe. She was the selection committee's first choice, and I was most pleased to act on its recommendation," explained the Minister for the Arts. She continued: "We were seeking a long-term solution for the head of the SKD's Executive Board which would guarantee continuity, and Marion Ackermann fulfils this brief perfectly. An experienced museum director and art historian, she possesses global connections and is highly communicative. Not only will she continue to extend Staatliche Kunstsammlungen
