Free Leonard Peltier

Free Leonard Peltier
The government under pretext of security and progress, liberated us from our land, resources, culture, dignity and future. They violated every treaty they ever made with us. I use the word “liberated” loosely and sarcastically, in the same vein that I view the use of the words “collateral damage” when they kill innocent men, women and children. They describe people defending their homelands as terrorists, savages and hostiles . . . My words reach out to the non-Indian: Look now before it is too late—see what is being done to others in your name and see what destruction you sanction when you say nothing. --Leonard Peltier, Annual Message January 2004 (Leonard Peltier is now serving 31st year as an internationally recognized Political Prisoner of the United States Government)

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'

The current 'Miss Universe' Dayana Mendoza (formerly Miss Venezuela) and 'Miss America' Crystal Stewart visited US troops stationed in Guantanamo Bay on March 20th, the New York Times reports. Here's Mendoza's account of the visit from her pageant blog last Friday. She says the trip "was a loooot of fun!"

This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience...All the guys from the Army were amazing with us. We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting. We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.

The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay :)

I didn't want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.

The Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO) is proud to present Inside Out, Photography After Form: Selections from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection, an exhibition curated by Simon Baker and Tanya Barson from the Tate Modern in London.

Inside Out: Photography After Form includes over 90 photographs from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection. It is one of a series of exhibitions that is organized on a yearly basis from the collection. For the first time in a few years, the exhibition focuses solely on the medium of photography and includes a significant portion of the photographic holdings from the collection, including many new acquisitions. The exhibition includes works by Uta Barth, Edward Burtynsky, Thomaz Farkas, Candida Höfer, Luisa Lambri, Germán Lorca, Gabriel Orozco, Paulo Pires, Ed Ruscha, Thomas Struth, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Fiona Tan, and many others.

The exhibtion explores the creative relationship between the camera lens and the construction, production and deconstruction of form; tracing the many and various ways in which form can and has been both produced and undone through the agency of the camera lens.

Rather than seeking to trace a lineage or make a chronological survey, the exhibition brings together contrasting images and bodies of work that reflect upon or examine the question of space and form from within and without, overturning preconceptions about the critical potential of the photographic medium.

Photography's experimental engagement with the formal possibilities of line, light and shadow in the real world are challenged and re-assessed through the work of post war conceptual and contemporary artists, who have engaged critically with modernism and its aftermath.

The exhibition is organized into three loose groupings (Form, Space, and Formlessness). They are not intended as strict categories, but rather as ways of looking at the same question in different ways: from a straightforward engagement with the play of form (the complex interrelation of resemblance, coincidence and misrecognition); through explorations of instability and ambiguity (including reversals of perspective and problems with space); to the dissolution of form into abstraction (the collapse of defined structures into formlessness, whether only for a fleeting moment, or after the relentless attrition of the passage of time).

About the Curators
