The Courmayeur Noir in Festival is an event that appears to go beyond the typical film festival format. Surrounded by sidebar conversations, exhibits and featuring a work in progress alongside titles by mainstream filmmakers, the festival has gained a following worthy of the noir genre.
Memphis-raised Askew is a charming, southern belle with a very distinctive vocal and musical style that can be heard on her recently released Empty Rooms EP.
There's a splendid, self-sufficient egoism in being young. Closed about with unearned affection from parents who will love you no matter how selfishly or casually you behave, you're free to indulge independence and individualism.

No Man's Land,
Waiting For Godot,
The current Broadway revival at the Cort Theater of Waiting For Godot is never less than riveting. That's thanks to the extraordinary chemistry between Ian McKellen as Estragon and Patrick Stewart as a determined, upbeat Vladimir/Didi.
Art Basel Miami Beach,
Ursula Von Rydingsvard,
The chaos of Art Basel Miami Beach is bigger than ever before, with even more satellite fairs, special projects, artist talks and museum openings. As if the fairs themselves weren't enough to keep you busy, there are also some fantastic not to be missed installations outside of the walls of the convention center.
If you've been to Israel in the last 40 years or heard Israeli popular music, then you probably know Danny Sanderson, who will be performing with his band at the Gindi Auditorium at American Jewish University on Dec. 8.
Mavara's own philosophy is that music is a story to expand people's minds, to make us think differently about how we live and what life is about. When I hear some of their songs, I know that we Americans could benefit from listening to these soulful Iranians.
The writing on the walls in Los Angeles was the same in Santiago; the trajectory of suppression, pain, and suffering, existed everywhere and nobody had been spared the shame.

Why do artist duos so often operate with a sardonic sense of humor, in various shades of black? Think of the caustic wit that inflects the work of the Chapman Brothers, Fischli/Weiss, Gilbert & George, and Allora & Calzadilla. Elmgreen & Dragset, who have a wry installation on view at...

Crime Scene Investigation,
So crimes involving art, yes, I understand. And solving crimes involving art? Sounds compelling, although not nearly as compelling as this: the notion of crime-SOLVING involving art.
Any other female performer who refused to share any of her personal life (or personality, really) would quickly be branded with quite different labels than the ones we have reserved for Queen Spears. Today being guarded is understood as "closed-off" or "robotic." The inability to present oneself as vulnerable is seen as "inauthentic." For Spears, that same behavior is untouchable.
Though none of us could ever truly imagine the trials Nelson Mandela faced or the suffering he experienced, a number of filmmakers have used the power of cinema to present a window -- however narrow and skewed it might be -- into that struggle, or one like it.
Daniel Horowitz Metamorphosis,
Painting a Day,
метаморфоза is a daily drawing project, a visual trajectory, generated through free association. Its themes, as they emerge, can be continually abstracted through a metamorphosis, just as the prefix "meta" indicates a concept which is an abstraction of another concept.
Having created installations for the likes of Christian Dior in New York and the West Hollywood Library, Wiseman has blossomed into a darling of the design world. This week, his lattice-inspired pieces, including a large screen, are on show at Design Miami/. Along with the Haas Brothers, Jeff Zimmermann and Joaquim Tenreiro, Wiseman's designs will be shown as part of the works selected by leading New York gallery R 20th Century. Graduating in 2003 from the Rhode Island School of Design, Wiseman quickly discovered that his intricate drawings would be better realised in 3D, allowing his audience to interact with them as they do the surrounding world. His ability to produce these amorphous shapes with such fluidity may have been brought on by his mother, who he, as a child, would often play doodling games with. Inspired by natural phenomena, his hands-on approach is appropriately organic and his creations, spanning both fine and decorative art, are all born from raw materials.
