            An exhibition catalogue - with beautiful photographs and essays Tungaru: The Kiribati Project' is a collaboration between contemporary New Zealand artists, Chris Charteris and Jeff Smith. Tungaru is the pre-colonial name for Kiribati. The project was born out of Chris' desire... to return to Kiribati, to meet his family and to experience life on these tiny strips of atoll in the Pacific. Always with a camera in hand, Jeff was there to capture much of the journey. The exhibition is not only a personal story about family but one that also references the larger global issues of climate change, over-population and threats to traditional cultures. The exhibition features a selection of artworks from Chris, an interactive Kiribati warrior created by Jeff, and archival footage of Kiribati, alongside pieces from the Museum's Kiribati collections.

            Whangarei Art Museum has been immersed in an important 'heritage rescue project' over the past four years. This exhibition will document not only the remarkable story of these important works to our national history of art, but also their own journey of despair and desecration, n...ow brought back to resplendent life. Found abandoned in an attic many of these works would have seemed beyond redemption to many but this exhibition will also highlight the science of art conservation and the generosity of sponsors. Several of the works including one drawing were almost savagely mistreated in an unknown past. In another instance, two paintings have been separated where the artist had also painted on the reverse and an extra painting is now framed and revealed to the public. All the art works have been beautifully custom-framed and many will be accompanied by 'before and after' texts. Over $30,000 in grants was raised by the art museum to acquire the collection and begin the remedial treatment needed. Just this month, Webb's have valued this collection now at $68,000 but it is the historical importance of these works which is set to grow exponentially.

            Apokalypse
             

            Apokalypse (EPUB ebook)

            By Flammarion, Camille

            Das letzte Buch der Bibel, die Offenbarung des Johannes (im Englischen auch "Apocalypse"), prophezeit das Ende aller Zeiten und schildert die Ereignisse, die das Weltende markieren werden. Wahrend des Mittelalters wurde das Motiv des Weltuntergangs zu einem zentralen Thema in der... Kunst und gleichzeitig ein Schreckgespenst des Volkes, das unter dem Einfluss religioser Autoritat in tiefer Angst vor einem zornigen Gott lebte. Glucklicherweise hielt dies die Kunstler der Apokalypse nicht davon ab, ihrer Fantasie freien Lauf zu lassen und den stark symbolischen Charakter des Offenbarungstexts auf vielfaltigste Art und Weise zu deuten und in den verschiedensten Werkstoffen umzusetzen. Dieses Buch bringt einige der beruhmtesten Offenbarungsdarstellungen zusammen, von den Wandteppichen der Angers-Apokalypse bis hin zu den eigenwilligen Illustrationen endzeitlicher Visionen eines William Blake. Begleitet wird diese Visualisierung der Apokalypse von einem nuancierten Text zu den zahlreichen falsch datierten und nie gekommenen Weltuntergangen der Menschheitsgeschichte.

            This beautifully designed publication is richly illustrated throughout, featuring over 100 large-scale historical and contemporary images and illustrations. It includes original essays and interviews with leading Aboriginal writers including Bruce Pascoe - winner of two 2016 NSW ...Premier's Literary Awards - Jeanine Leane, Hetti Perkins and Uncle Stan Grant Sr AM, alongside Australian academics Ross Gibson, Peter Kohane and Ilaria Vanni Accarigi. His artwork barrangal dyara (skin and bones) transforms Sydney's Royal Botanic Garden on its 200th anniversary. Jones's project revives the vast 19th-century Garden Palace that housed Sydney's International Exhibition, lost to fire in 1882, resulting in the destruction of countless Aboriginal objects held inside. It recovers the fragments of this lost story, and explores its intersecting histories, through an investigation of ideas around architecture, landscape, collection and display, language and cultural identity.

            Siting Michelangelo: Spectatorship, Site Specificity & Soundscape
             

            Siting Michelangelo: Spectatorship, Site Specificity & Soundscape (EPUB ebook)

            By Gillgren, Peter

            Michelangelo's originality as an artist lay not only in ideas about perfection and beauty, but also in his unique approach to the artistic process and art's site specificity. Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel and the sculptures of the Medici chapel and Julius II's tom...b should all be understood as dramatic interventions at their sites. Instead of adapting to and blending in with their surroundings, these are works that interact with the space, the ceremonies, and the music. In addition, the many uncompleted works and the artist's own writings point to an aesthetic of continuous processing, where the fundamentals remain as important as the finished work. In Siting Michelangelo, Peter Gillgren investigates Michelangelo's works as conceived with the aim of altering and rearranging what was already in place. Gillgren's study shows that not only must we look closely at works of art, but we must fully consider them as embodiments of their sitedness. This original and thought-provoking book applies a fresh critical perspective to the essentials of the discipline of art history.
