“Out of the box” or an open-air gallery – a new project of the Zagreb Tourist Board

first_imgThe Hommage Bolléu installation is inspired by inexhaustible biomorphic motifs that permeate the Museum of Arts and Crafts and the School of Crafts, today’s School of Applied Arts and Design. The interior railings of the gallery are woven from stylized organic details that clearly hint at Art Nouveau with their shapes. Maša Barišić – Temporarily closed The project deals with art in public space, using the buildings of the Museum of Arts and Crafts, the School of Applied Arts and Design, the Gradec Gallery and the Art Pavilion. Inspired by their history, material, but also the current situation, the artists design installations that they place “Out of the box”.  “In the next month, we are realizing, in this truly extraordinary time, a unique project that beautifies and enriches the public space, revitalizes the city and provides a special experience of art. off site. Although, unfortunately, some of the locations are currently unable to invite visitors to tour the exhibition, with the intervention of our artists the individual building becomes a work of art, emphasizing the idea that the buildings have their own identity and soul. I would like to thank the director of MUO, Mr. Miroslav Gašparović, then the director of the Klovićevi dvori Gallery, Mr. Antonio Picukarić, and the director of the Art Pavilion, Mrs. Jasminka Poklečki Stošić, as well as the School of Applied Arts and Design for recognizing this project and enabling its implementation.. “Pointed out dr.sc. Martina Bienenfeld, director of the Zagreb Tourist Board. ART PAVILION MUSEUM OF ARTS AND CRAFTS & SCHOOL OF APPLIED ARTS AND DESIGN / Ida Blažičko – Hommage to Bollé  Thus, art emerges from galleries and museums, and their facades and the spaces that surround them gain a new temporary function and become unique. outdoor gallery. Each of these locations is edited by individual artists, so, street art artist Boris Bare and sculptor Ivo Gašparić set up an installation “Outside” at the Gradec Gallery. The art pavilion will be included with as many as two installations “New Landscape” and “Temporarily Closed” signed by artists Maša Barišić and Jelena Malenica, and sculptor Ida Blažičko will place “Hommage Bollé” on the facades of MUO and ŠPUD Boris Bare & Ivo Gasparic – rooms  The spatial-specific intervention on the façade of the historicist palace built from 1887 to 1891 in the spirit of the German Renaissance was dedicated to the architect Herman Bollé. It was after the devastating earthquake in 1880 that he became known as the restorer and builder of the Croatian metropolis.  More about art installations within the project “Out of the box” A metal sculpture that “grows” through the moon and slowly covers the steps at the entrance of the Art Pavilion, temporarily closed after the earthquake. A reminder of a natural disaster turns into a garden overgrown with plants; metal ivy, a symbol of life and art, which continues to live and grow, even in impossible conditions. Just like a wild plant. KLOVIĆEVI DVORI GALLERY & GRADEC GALLERY Masa Barisic & Jelena Malenica – A new landscape Due to the earthquake, some of the buildings in the function of museums or art galleries were temporarily closed. Having lost the possibility of working, these buildings are left without their function, they stand as a reminder of the wounded city and wait for the “revival”. Although the Art Pavilion cannot currently invite visitors to tour the exhibition, the artist’s intervention itself becomes a work of art and invites citizens to look outside. Light emanates through the windows and pulsates in the rhythm of hearts that have only living beings, emphasizing the poetic idea that buildings have their own identity and soul.  The project “Out of the box” pays special attention to the current topic of reconstruction of Zagreb, drawing attention to the cultural offer of the city that suffered significant damage caused by the Zagreb earthquake, and the whole project will last from October 27 to November 27.  The Zagreb Tourist Board has launched a new cultural and artistic project called “Out of the box”, and realizes it in collaboration with the creative team The two of us – Ana Mikin and Tina Kovačiček and selected artists.  “We are looking forward to cooperating with the Tourist Board and selected city museums and artists on the project “Beyond the Frame”. Given the fact that we support open-air meetings, especially following the epidemiological measures of the CNIPH, we consider artistic interpretations of the situation outside the “gallery walls” to be extremely valuable and stimulating.He said Antonio Picukarić, director of GKD. Framed paintings of large dimensions, whose motifs are inspired by the material of the Klovićevi dvori Gallery, “come out” of the gallery space and are placed on the neglected facade of the Gradec Gallery, turning it into a wall for exhibiting works of art. Oversized sculptures represent the audience that is an integral part of the exhibition, while casual or intentional passers-by on the spot become part of the artwork.last_img read more

Reece Oxford focus

first_imgWest Ham boss Slaven Bilic handed 16-year-old Reece Oxford his Barclays Premier League debut on Sunday as his side went on to win 2-0 at Arsenal. The England Under-17 skipper has already broken the record as the youngest player to ever represent the Hammers and, here, Press Association Sport analyses his display at the Emirates. PERFORMANCE Risen through the ranks as a classy, ball-playing defender who was once a reported target for Arsenal, but Bilic fancies the teenager as a defensive midfielder and he did not put a foot wrong despite coming up against the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Happy to issue orders to those around him before being replaced with 10 minutes to go by club captain Kevin Nolan. His development could mean that Bilic has filled a position without having to dip into the transfer market. MATURITY No-one would have pointed out the 16-year-old league debutant if asked to do so after kick-off. If he does continue in the side there are likely to be hiccups, but with the expected permanent arrival of Alex Song coupled with the likes of Mark Noble and Cheikhou Kouyate, Oxford has plenty of experienced players to learn from. WILL HE MAKE IT? There is no reason to suggest not, even at this early stage. Oxford became the Premier League’s seventh-youngest player but has international experience and a manager who appears ready to put faith in him to do a job in a role that demands so much. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Springfest to implement new safety measures

first_imgUSC will put in place new safety measures for Springfest this year.Students will now have to register for the event online and will not be permitted to bring guests.Pre-registration, however, does not guarantee admission to the venue. Students will be admitted on a first-come, first-serve basis.There will also be increased security and increased fencing at the entry points and around the perimeter of McCarthy Quad, which will host the event.“We’re looking that practices are consistent to have a safe and fun event for everyone and to reduce potential for injuries and unlawful behavior,” DPS Lieutenant Mark Cervenak said.According to Cervenak, the number of students admitted to the venue will be capped at 5,000, but fire regulation will be conducting ongoing assessment of the crowd throughout the night.“If you have people dancing, one becomes two maybe three people [because] if someone’s moving around it creates less space,” he said.Students will not be permitted to reenter the venue if they leave. This is to assure that students do not lend their student IDs to others to allow them entry, Cervenak said.“[We] might have a real popular artist performing or a real popular event and the venue has to be able to accommodate our guests for that,” Cervenak said. “If there’s too many people, it poses a safety concern for all of us and liability for the University.”These new measures have stemmed from last year’s Springfest, which was canceled before the headliner came out onstage due to concerns for student safety and security because of overcrowding. Springfest 2017 drew a larger crowd than previous years with a crowd in which 30 percent were non-USC students, according to a Daily Trojan article from April.“[My] position that we didn’t have last year so I guess that’s the biggest indication that there’s been a change,” said Kira Stiers, director of risk management for concerts committee. “We’ve created this position just because our shows have gotten bigger as our artists have gotten bigger.”last_img read more


first_imgCOMEBACKING OMAHA BEACH OUTRUNS FAVORED SHANCELOT TO WIN GRADE I, $300,000 SANTA ANITA SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP BY A HEAD; SMITH & MANDELLA TEAM FOR SIX FURLONG PARTY IN RAPID 1:08.79RACE IS A BREEDERS’ CUP ‘WIN & YOU’RE IN’ CHALLENGE RACE QUALIFIER     ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 5, 2019)–The morning line favorite for this Kentucky Derby and idle since April 13, Richard Mandella’s Omaha Beach put on a tremendous exhibition in Saturday’s Grade I, $300,000 Santa Anita Sprint Championship, as he gradually overhauled heavily favored eastern invader Shancelot to prevail by a head in an astonishingly fast 1:08.79 under Mike Smith.The question now is, where does this immensely talented colt by War Front go next?  With today’s race a Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Challenge Race qualifier to the $2 million Sprint here on Nov. 2, that’s an obvious option, but given the scope and versatility Omaha Beach has exhibited in both the morning and afternoon, he could potentially run in any one of three races on Nov. 2.“I want to enjoy this one, but the Sprint, the ($2 million) Mile and the mile and a quarter ($6 million Classic) are all possible,” said Mandella, who had to stop on his stable star just days before the Run for the Roses due to an entrapped epiglotis.  “I’m just very relieved to have him back. At the eighth pole, I thought we were (going to be) clear, but it took some race riding…This horse has a heart of gold and he’s got the greatest personality of any horse I’ve ever had.  I would say anything’s possible.”Although he bobbled ever so slightly at the break, Omaha Beach was quickly into stride and was just a head off of Shancelot while full of run mid-way around the turn.  At the top of the lane, Shancelot, drifted a bit off the rail and Smith then stayed inside through an incredible stretch battle.“He broke extremely well, almost too well,” said Smith. “He slipped a little leaving there, but man he settled right in behind them really nice. He was loaded coming off that turn…His last work was brilliant and he ran the way he worked.“He’s a throwback to those classic horses. He can do anything. Three quarters to a mile and a quarter. He’s extremely fast and he’s got tremendous stamina…He can do it all. The only thing that surprised me today was that I had to stay inside. His last work was his best one, no question. Today, he hit his best stride late.”Overlayed at 5-2 off of a morning line of 8-5 in a field of six, Omaha Beach, who is out of the Seeking the Gold mare Charming, paid $7.20, $2.40 and $2.10.Owned by Rick Porter’s Fox Hill Farms, Inc., Omaha Beach, who won the Grade I Arkansas Derby on April 13, now has a total of three graded stakes wins to his credit from an overall mark of 8-4-3-1.  With today’s winner’s share of $180,000, his earnings stand at $1,301,800.Although it would have been unfathomable to imagine any horse getting beat that essentially ran six furlongs today in 1:08 and 4/5s seconds, that’s exactly the fate that befell Shancelot, who shipped in from his Monmouth Park base and was ridden by Florida-based Emisael Jaramillo.“I really don’t know what to think right now, to be honest,” said a visibly stunned Jorge Navarro, trainer of Shancelot. “I thought maybe he (Jaramillo) waited too long…What’s he looking back for?”A galloping 12 ½ length winner of a Grade II sprint stakes at Saratoga two starts back on July 28, Shancelot was just a head shy of being unbeaten in four starts and was thus made the 1-5 favorite, returning $2.10 and $2.10 while finishing 2 ½ lengths in front of John Sadler’s Flagstaff.Ridden by Victor Espinoza, Flagstaff was off at 9-1 and paid $2.10 to show.Fractions, all set by the runner-up, were 21.87, 44.38 and 56.18.last_img read more
