Two pieces from Boris Mikhailov’s series “Parliament,” on view at the Ukraine Pavilion in this year’s Venice Biennale.

“I tried to express the crisis through the Suprematist disintegration of the figurative by examining the broadcast of parliamentary debates and the interaction of verbal and visual manifestations that correspond with these images.”

― Boris Mikhailov

duderonymusbosch  asked:

I haven't been to the Getty in a little under a year. What do you recommend a take a look at, including a re-look at things in the permanent collection that may jive with any rotating exhibits?

It’s a special time at the Getty until January 2018 as we’ve got four Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA exhibitions! Over 80 exhibitions around Southern California are focusing on Latin American and Latino/a Art in Los Angeles, find out more info here.

In a few weeks, we’ll have two shows opening, one is a manuscripts exhibition called “Sacred Landscapes” about nature and green spaces and the other is a show of landscapes of Venice by Giovanni Bellini.

There’s also a new Parmigianino acquisition on view in North Pavilion, Gallery N204.

Thanks for your question!

Menagerie, Versailles
Louis La Vaux, 1663

The menagerie at Versailles, was a royal zoo built for Louis XIV. To the centre of the circular layout was an octagonal viewing pavilion for the King. This looked out into a series of enclosures for the animals which had bounding walls to three sides with open bars facing towards the centre. It is thought that this may have influenced Jeremy Bentham’s Panopticon.

We denizens of the 21st century have numerous ways to learn about our planet: seismographs, submersibles, and airborne snow observatories cover every continent. Some of the most remote Earth science instruments are the satellites that circle our globe to gather data about droughts, hurricanes, and tectonic shifts. NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Orbit Pavilion, currently on display at The Huntington, brings these far-away vessels back to Earth, but with a twist.

Earth Day seems like the perfect excuse to revisit “Knowing the Earth, Then and Now” from the Verso archives.

That soft smile you so saw often when he looked at Mai was back on his face.  He reached up and cupped your cheek.  “Y/N, believe me when I say that I truly do care about Maile, and you.  I love every minute I’ve spent with you both, and I have a feeling it’s only going to get better from here on out.”

“You know what?  I think you just might be right about that.” Leaning forward, you kissed him again, thankful for being so lucky as to have him in your lives.

 

Sam was a fixture at your house from then on.  He came over at least three times a week for dinner, usually staying to put Maile to bed and spending some one on one time with you after she was asleep.  You were in heaven; being with Sam was like a dream. He was a true gentleman, holding doors open for you and pushing your chair in for you at dinner, and he truly listened to you when you spoke, no matter what the subject was.  He was just as interested in what you were saying when you told him about cleaning out the car as he was when you’d first told him about Maile’s father.

Hairdryer chair in the Womens’ Wards at Seaview Hospital, one of the most historically significant tubercular sanatoriums in America.  Designed by Raymond Almirall at the beginning of the 20th century, there were originally 8 ward pavilions - 4 for men, 4 for women.  Sadly, the Mens’ Wards were demolished decades ago to make room for an ugly new building on the campus, which is now used as a rehabilitation hospital.  This photograph is from my very first (of many) trips into the Wards, in 2005.

anonymous asked:

What are medieval pocket monsters, and how can the Getty help me catch them all?

Books of Hours were the medieval best-seller, and most could fit in your pocket. Many of these awesome manuscripts featured wondrous marginalia filled with monsters. And there you have it, Medieval Pocket Monsters. Their variety was so great, that we haven’t even caught them all! But here are some fun ones (from a single book) for you to explore (and the book is actually on view in our North Pavilion gallery)!
