Zoumboulakis Gallery launched the other day the exhibition “Mehr Als Schein / Shining Through / Αυτό που φαίνεται”, as part of Zone D project, at the beautiful neoclassical building at the number 135 of Ermou street in Athens. The exhibition consists of mainly greek and german artists’ work, who are preoccupied with the aesthetics of surface. The opening party was supported by Absolut vodka that, in addition, celebrates the artistic creativity with its new bottle designed by Dave Kinsey.

“The Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation exceptionally presents at the ING Cultural Centre, at Place Royale in Brussels, creations from the Yves Saint Laurent collection, a major part on display for the first time, in a solo exhibition devoted to the Parisian fashion designer.
Women’s desire, masculin-feminin, the shock of colours, the paper fashion house, the heart, jewelry, drawings and sketches come together to reveal the alchemy of the Saint Laurent style
…and oh the 1965 bride standing there, most highly protected from evil photo shooting…
Well this is what came out by poor hidden camera and several warnings from security guards”.
During my small trip to Brussels, I was very lucky to watch the photography exhibition of top filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, whose early creative efforts as a photojournalist for the New York magazine Look, I was completely unaware of.
I was suprised by his large amount of work and completely captivated by the cinematographic viewpoint of it.
His lens captures a portrait of America after World War II- a central theme in Kubrick’s films. His themes include crime scenes, the life of a showshine man, a university theater troupe, etc.
Beyond his involvement with society and its social and racial tensions, Kubricks’ photographic work displays a precision of composition that goes beyond mere reporting. Capable of constructing a scene, Kubrick sought to transcend the present moment, by definition chaotic and uncontrollable, by lending it form and structure.
The exhibition ends July 1st, 2012, www.fine-arts-museum.be
