Damien Hirst Reveals A New And Unique Exhibit

A shipwreck was discovered by divers in 2008 off the African coast and Damien Hirst was enlisted for funding so the ancient artifacts could be recovered. The impressive finds had been collected by a freed slave named Cif Amotan II and included a severed head of Medusa and several statues of pharaohs. The treasure dates back two millennia and was sent to an island museum. The treasure has now been organized by Damien Hirst and the exhibition in Venice even includes coral-encrusted statues of Goofy and Mickey Mouse. This exhibition represents Hirst’s first major showing in well over ten years. Ersatz artifacts are paired with a fictional backstory. Staged videos of the fake treasures being excavated by divers support the exhibit. The ancient statues show the faces of Rihanna and Kate Moss and restored and encrusted versions of the artifacts are on display. The show has been dubbed Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable.

The exhibit is a financial risk for Damien Hirst. According to the New York Times he has invested millions. The exhibit sprawls across Punta Della Dogana, Palazzo Grassi, and François Pinault. His irony is similar to Tom Sachs although Hirst’s humor is more kitschy. Hirst has taken his exhibit to new extremes and done so on a Hollywood budget.

The production scale is already being compared to Cecil B. DeMille but the audacity of the showmanship he uses is similar to P.T. Barnum. The exhibit is being called a spectacle that goes well beyond the world of art. This is what gives Damien Hirst’s work a meaningful impact. In an era where truth has been metastasized into blatantly fake news this assault on the credulity of art has artistic originality. Only time will reveal if he has hit his mark.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Holland’s Heroes Appear In Leaked Avengers: Infinity War Image

Avengers: Infinity War is shaping up to be the supreme Marvel superhero movie event of all time. So, it is appropriate the “Sorcerer Supreme” known as Doctor Strange would appear in the film. Doctor Strange won’t be the only non-Avenger to make an appearance. The Amazing Spider-Man shows up in the film as well. Fans know this thanks to a leaked image from the film. The image shows Doctor Strange and Spider-Man together. Doctor Strange seems to be saving Spider-Man as the wall-crawler might be in a bit of trouble.

Yes, Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Holland, the actors playing Doctor Strange and Spider-Man, share a bit of screen time together in the new film. While Doctor Strange and Spider-Man teamed up many times in the comic books, this is their first one on the big screen.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Holland both are coming off very successful solo films. The cinematic Doctor Strange feature did well and Spider-Man: Homecoming appears to be resurrecting the once-threatened Sony Spider-Man franchise.

The two actors aren’t the only ones making a special appearance in the upcoming hero film. Avengers: Infinity War brings a number of Marvel heroes into the action since the threat the world faces from the super-villain Thanos truly is earth-shattering.

Cumberbatch and Holland also gain helpful exposure in the new film. Spider-Man remains a proven property, but Doctor Strange may need a bit more promotional help to keep the sorcerer’s first film from being a one-hit fluke.

Considering how popular the actors and their characters are, audiences will continue to see both on the big screen time and time again.

Rare Exhibition of Work by Cristóbal de Villalpando at the Met

A 1683 work by Mexican artist Cristóbal de Villalpando has left its native land and is being exhibited, reportedly for the first time, in a foreign country. The iconic canvas is on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Villalpando was commissioned to paint “Moses and the Brazen Serpent and the Transfiguration of Jesus,” painted for a chapel in Puebla Cathedral. The work is considered particularly compelling for its juxtaposition of the Old with the New Testaments.

At the top of the piece is the New Testament transfiguration of Jesus’ corporeal body into the heavens, into the light. The lower portion of the image canvas depicts the biblical story in which Moses utilized the image of the serpent to heal the snake-poisoned Israelites.

Beginning on Tuesday, July 25, the painting by Villalpando will go on public display at the Met. The canvas will be part of “Cristóbal de Villalpando: Mexican Painter of the Baroque” exhibition. The exhibition will feature 10 additional paintings by the artist. As is the case with “Moses and the Brazen Serpent and the Transfiguration of Jesus,” a majority of these other works have not been exhibited anywhere else in the world, let alone in the United States.

Villalpando likely is best known for his ecclesiastical commissions, like “Moses and the Brazen Serpent and the Transfiguration of Jesus.” Nonetheless, Villalpando was an accomplished portrait artist as well. He is famous for his 1695 painting of the main square in Mexico City. The painting depicts the Mexican capital’s main buildings, market, and canal.

The exhibition of Villalpando’s work is scheduled to run at the Met through October 15. Staff of the museum anticipate that the exhibition will prove to be well attended from the beginning to the end of its run at the Met.

Smart homes make life simpler for those who invest in them. Smart home technology ranges from simple systems with modest features to elaborate ones with high tech features. The emergence of smart home technology presents new opportunities and challenges for real estate agents. Concepts that were once regarded as the future of real estate are now the new norm in the industry. As such, real estate entrepreneurs with a keen eye for emerging trends in the industry have adjusted to this new model by incorporating smart technology in new projects. Todd Lubar is one such businessman.

Smart home builders such as Quadrant Homes are incorporating the smart home technology as a standard procedure during the construction of new homes. The company is currently offering a package of features such as:

  • Nest thermostats
  • Ring motion-detecting doorbells
  • Lutron automatic window shades
  • Caseta Wireless smart lighting

Seattle city has been on the forefront in the adoption of smart technology innovations. This could be attributed to the presence of many tech startups started by young college graduates who flock the city in search for the latest smart technology trends. Quadrant’s package is easy to use since it is designed to be user-friendly. Other towns in the country are seeking to adopt the smart home technology trend. In fact, experts predict that smart homes will soon be common even in rural areas.

Although many home experts believe that the emergence of this new technology will present new opportunities, there are a few challenges associated with smart home technology. The ability of artificial intelligence to correctly perceive human speech is a primary technical concern related to this new trend. Designing machines that understand all languages correctly is still a challenge to many programmers. The problem is bigger in instances where home users have speech limitations such as stammering. Besides, the security of smart homes can be easily compromised by cyber criminals since some appliances with wifi capability lack adequate security features. Check out Patreon to know more.
