The French have been reading the tea leaves. Despite or perhaps because of recent violence, there seemed a new spirit of generosity towards tourists, if not to migrants. So many Americans are trooping off to art fairs. Why not also visit the most exciting performance festivals, many in France, which have a multicultural, often political, contemporary perspective? And a spate of private, hidden-away sites has also opened to the public which document the intensity of the lives and work of artists.

Pablo Picasso: 130 year Influence on Architecture

Tom Mallory | Posted 12.27.2011 | Arts
Tom Mallory

I think it was painting - that of Pablo Picasso overwhelmingly so - that influenced modern architecture to start challenging the boundaries and possibilities of three-dimensional space. Cubism was always destined to be a 2-dimensional art form but the brave and deconstructive thinking behind it has transcended the arts and in its own way has massively influenced the architecture around us.
