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.

Yves Klein: With the Void, Full Powers

The critically acclaimed exhibition Yves Klein: With the Void, Full Powers makes its final stop at the Walker Art Center, October 23, 2010–February 13, 2011, following its premiere at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC. Showcasing the prolific but brief career (1954–1962) of one of the 20th century's most influential artists, this major U.S. retrospective—Klein's first since 1982—was co-organized by the Walker and the Hirshhorn, and co-curated by Dia Art Foundation director Philippe Vergne, formerly chief curator and deputy director at the Walker, and the Hirshhorn's deputy director and chief curator Kerry Brougher.

Through some 200 works, the exhibition explores the full range of the artist's practice and offers an essential examination of a pivotal moment in contemporary art history. Featuring examples from all of Klein's major series—from his iconic blue monochromes and Anthropometries to his sponge reliefs, fire paintings, "air architecture" projects, Cosmogonies, and planetary reliefs—the installation also provides insight into Klein's conceptual endeavors through an array of sketches, photographs, letters, and writings. Several films, which document his working methods, further demonstrate the radical nature of his interdisciplinary practice. Many objects on view are on loan directly from the Yves Klein Archives, which was a full collaborator in developing the exhibition.

From his experiments with immaterial architecture to his leap into the void, Klein defied common notions of art and aimed to rethink the world in spiritual and aesthetic terms. Self-identified as "the painter of space," he sought to achieve immaterial sensibility through pure color, primarily an ultramarine pigment he called International Klein Blue (IKB). With a special focus on Klein's conceptual and performative projects, this presentation of his œuvre marks a key moment in the shift from modern to contemporary artistic practice and reveals the full extent of the artist's influence.

École de Klein

In conjunction with the exhibition, the Walker Art Center presents École de Klein, a curriculum exploring the artist's curiosities, life, and work through a series of lectures, gallery talks, art labs, film, poetry, dance, and experimental moments. Blue screams, judo demonstrations, pigment-invention, monochrome-making, and conversations/tours in French bring visitors closer to this multifaceted and revolutionary thinker. All participants receive an École de Klein notebook.

Exhibition Catalogue

A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition, containing critical essays by curators Vergne and Brougher, Klein scholar Klaus Ottmann, art historian Kaira Cabañas, and curator Andria Hickey. The book also includes archival materials and translations of Klein's published and unpublished writings. Distributed by D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, Inc. ISBN 978-0-935640-94-6.
