TEDGlobal

“TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.”

“The Ludwig Museum was founded in 1976 with the gift of around 350 works of modern art by the Ludwig couple. It was to be the first museum in Cologne to exhibit modern art. Alongside pop art works the Ludwigs also gave the museum an extensive collection of Russian Avantgarde paintings on permanent loan from the era 1906 to 1930 as well as several hundred works by Pablo Picasso. The works of Picasso have since been transferred to the museum in two generous donations in the years 1994 and 2001.

The modern art department of the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum with the expressionist collection of the Cologne lawyer Joseph Haubrich forms the basis for the collection of modern art and has since been integrated into the Ludwig Museum. Roy Lichtenstein’s “Maybe”, Andy Warhol’s “Brillo Boxes” or George Segal’s “Restaurant Window” – icons of American pop art – belong to the most famous works of the museum.” (https://www.cologne-tourism.com/attractions-culture/museums/museum-ludwig.html)

“Time Equities Inc. (TEI) is committed to enriching the experience of our properties through the Art-in-Buildings Program, an innovative approach that brings contemporary art by emerging and mid-career artists to non-traditional exhibition spaces in the interest of promoting artists, expanding the audience for art, and creating a more interesting environment for our building occupants, residents, and their guests.

TEI founded Art-in-Buildings (AiB) in 2000 at the Maiden Lane Exhibition Space at 125 Maiden Lane. The inaugural exhibition was Up in the Trees by Barbara Andrus. The early exhibition history at 125 Maiden Lane includes exhibitions of work by Steven Siegel, Jon Isherwood, Todd McGrain, Alain Kirili, John Cross, and a survey of Sol LeWitt’s sculptural maquettes, among others. From this auspicious beginning, AiB has expanded to include rotating exhibitions and permanent installations at numerous sites in New York City and beyond. Our spaces range from atriums and lobbies to a small street-level window and a fully-equipped white cube gallery space. This variety of exhibition spaces poses numerous site-responsive challenges and opportunities for experimentation by our collaborators. Recently, we’ve inaugurated projects in Montreal, Toronto, and outside Detroit, where we strive to connect with artists from the thriving local art scenes. Art-in-Buildings is curated by Jennie Lamensdorf.” (https://teiartinbuildings.com/about)

HATCH 2015 | Big Sky, MT


HATCH

“Fifty-five year ago the leaders of the Greater Boston advertising community began the tradition of honoring their peers for creative excellence in their field. In choosing the title of this event, it was decided that it would carry the name of a person who was respected for the qualities for which the Advertising Club stood. That name was unanimously selected: Francis W. Hatch.

Francis W. Hatch began his 40+ year advertising career in the Boston branch of Batten, Barton, Durstine & Osborn (later to become the internationally famous BBDO) where he helped build the foundation of New England advertising. A poet, playwright, songster, and storyteller, he chronicled history as he knew it and lived it.

Frank was a humanitarian and a leader in the community with a firm belief that it is good for the advertising industry to devote time to public service. He gave his time and energies to the Red Cross, the Red Feather, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and other organizations. He was an inspiration to all who knew him.” (http://theadclub.org/hatch55/about/)

Lecture at Location One
Organized by Claudia Calirman, Senior Curator and Claire Montgomery, Founder
New York, NY
2012


Location One

“Location One is an independent, non-profit center for artistic experimentation and advanced thinking about the arts. We provide a home for serious discussion of the arts and social awareness, offering residential fellowships in the visual arts, performance, and writing.

We offer intensive curatorial expertise, technical guidance and creative resources, tailored to each fellow’s needs. We encourage participants to create new work and to exhibit or perform their work in our three exhibition spaces (in New York’s SoHo district). We invite them to share their thinking with the intellectual and artistic community in New York and – digitally – everywhere else.

Location One has forged an extensive network in political, academic and cultural communities in New York and abroad. Program participants have come from 33 countries so far in a network that extends throughout Asia, western and eastern Europe and Latin America. It is an ever-expanding network of people who care about artists and how they grow; who think that arts and creative expression matter deeply to the development of human culture. They understand the importance of creating new perceptions and critical thinking as technology and globalization transform our world.

Artists and thinkers take for granted the fluid boundaries of knowledge in the twenty-first century. They are the vanguard of human thought. They shape the models for the way we experience the contemporary world and images of its future. We at Location One have worked for 13 years to foster experimental art and critical dialogue between the people of the United States and the international community. The insight and vision of our fellows gives us hope for the future. (http://www.location1.org/about/)
