We’re into 2014 now and the snow seems like it has no intention of stopping. Since most of our client events take place the other three seasons, we’ll use this newsletter to remind you of events happening indoors with some of our previous clients as well as a case study on MonstrARTity – “Bollywood Monster Mashup” (2013)
As well, we’ve noticed the most used resource on our website is the marketing tool kit. It’s been recently updated with more tips and tricks, but we think we can do more – for the next little while we’ll be featuring marketing articles, how-tos and Q&As from some of the best in the business. Follow us on Twitter or find us on Facebook to stay absolutely up to date!
ON NOW AT THE AGO
The Great Upheaval: Masterpieces from the Guggenheim Collection, 1910-1918 showcases the dynamism, creativity, and innovation of art produced in Europe in the years leading up to andduring the First World War. Featuring paintings from the collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum by artists such as Constantin Brancusi, Marc Chagall, Marcel Duchamp, Vasily Kandinsky, Fernand Leger, Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani, Piet Mondrian and Pablo Picasso, among others, the exhibition chronologically traces the achievements of these tumultuous years as artists experimented with new ways to create art while launching such movements as expressionism, futurism and cubism.
“The Great Upheaval bears witness to how dazzlingly fruitful an eight-year period can be….In the brief interlude before the outbreak of war, original ideas sprang up in such profusion that a single metaphor cannot contain them: they skyrocketed, snowballed, mushroomed, and multiplied” Ariella Budick, FinancialTimes On until March 2 – click for more information.
ON NOW AT THE ART GALLERY OF HAMILTON
Repeatedly in his work, Canadian artist Kim Adams has explored the patterns of a mobile society, creating works of art that are eccentric hybrids of the readymade. Blending humour, satire and seriousness, he builds “worlds” as a means of social critique.
A magnificent visual masterpiece, Bruegel-Bosch Bus consists of a 1960 Volkswagen that appears to pull a post-industrial universe displaying a cornucopia of fantastic and seductive worlds that play with our senses. It was produced over a 7-year span. This futuristic diorama is a permanent fixture in the AGH Sculpture Atrium overlooking the Irving Zucker Sculpture Garden, past Hamilton City Hall and the Niagara Escarpment. Click here for details.
