For the first time Barilla meets the fashion world and dresses up with a new fuchsia packaging signed GCDS, a limited and exclusive edition, almost sold out, presented in a short film by Nadia Lee Cohen.
The film is a clear reference to 1960s cinema, Douglas Sirk and Alfred Hitchcock’s films, and recalls the typical Italian atmosphere, where the main characters are Sophia Loren and a plate of spaghetti with tomato and basil offered to a host of diners, all of them dressed up by GCDS.
Ailie Banks is an Australian illustrator who is making herself known to the public because of her contemporary and irreverent style. Her imagery is strongly influenced by a neo-feminist perspective, where the meanings associated with symbols, such as pink and words like “bitch”, are subverted.
In her illustrations it is very common to find women who are not depilated, often in intimacy with each other, free of inhibitions and taboos. The millennial pink becomes a symbol of rebellion, the soft background on which stand out strong contents, which have the purpose of freeing the female figure.
Growing up with a violent father, since childhood Ailie has found in the drawing her moment of peace and escape from her difficult domestic situation; for this reason, the artist immediately understood her artistic mission.
It is not easy to deal with such complex and multifaceted issues, what do you think?
Daku, India’s most important anonymous street artist, is taking part in the festival “Life is beautiful” 2019, to present the latest addition to the series “time changes everything” in collaboration with justkids.
The typographic installation, located in Fremont street, a district known as the corner of writers in Las Vegas, features Shakespeare’s words in block letters, as a tribute to the library that once housed the building. It says: ‘very slow for those who wait, very fast for those who are scared, very long for those who lament, very short for those who celebrate’.
An installation kept alive by the light and that slowly falls asleep at dusk of day. The letters are placed perpendicularly to the wall with L-shaped supports: the sunlight makes the projection visible on the wall, at sunset the letters become Italicized and at night they are completely camouflaged, becoming one with the white facade.
We are in Fall River, in the United States of America, which is a city part of Bristol County in the state of Massachusetts. The FABRIC Arts Festival is set to take place in Fall River on September 25th-28th with a multidisciplinary program that aims to interweave local traditions, places, and people in the creation of a new way to experience the city. Fabric Arts Festival is a celebration of art, music, community and the city and it’s organized by Casa dos Açores Nova de Inglaterra (CANI).
Among the artists involved, the artist Alberonero, who made “Molo“. He tells us:
“Molo is a temporary installation built on top of the water in the city of Fall River. The work is dedicated to the gaze and the relationship between our body and the space around it. A place to enter and discover a new and extraordinary point of view on the characteristics of the industrial and natural landscape of the city, traditions, and roots of the place. The work is ephemeral and it’s possible to look through it, for it was built using wood and agricultural mesh, which enables the work to breathe and to be penetrated by the light and shadows, changing its aspect over different times of the day. A place to be discovered playing with the surfaces of the veils, inspired by temporary and primitive nomad architecture.” Alberonero always works with the square module and also here that he made this pavilion using the rectangular shape, in the cut of the nets and in the “plan” of this structure made by poor materials and opened to the sea. It’s like a corridor towards the infinite blue, which is reflected in the water and which changes every time with the light changes.
One of the most anticipated returns of this year is that of no less than Queen Elizabeth II. The Crown, the original Netflix series that tells the story of the life of the Queen of England, comes in its third season.
The period of time covered by the ten episodes that will be available from November 17 goes from 1964, that is from the birth of Edward, fourth and last son of the Queen, arriving until 1977.
In these years the English crown has to face several changes related to society, but also to internal problems, not least those related to Prince Charles, who in 1971 met Camilla Parker Bowls and, above all, in 1977 met Diana Spencer. On this last point, there is still no certainty, we do not know if we will really see Lady D or we should wait for the fourth season.
Already at the beginning of the production of the first season, among the plans of the creator Peter Morgan, there was the idea of changing the actors every two seasons, for this reason. we will find a completely new cast starting from the protagonist: Claire Foy had to give way to Olivia Colman, fresh from Oscar for her performance in The Favorite. At her side, we will see, among others, Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret.
