Du Bois exhibit a first in U.S.

first_imgThe images on the walls of the intimate gallery at 104 Mt. Auburn St. are hauntingly evocative. In “Black Friar,” a hooded figure stares out of the darkness, his gaze intense and unsettled. An opposing image, “Every Moment Counts,” offers a modern approach to Jesus, as a beloved disciple leans against the body of the Christ-like figure whose eyes are fixed on the heavens.The works comprise a new exhibit titled “Rotimi Fani-Kayode (1955-1989): Photographs,” a selection of photographs by the Nigerian-born artist Fani-Kayode, in partial collaboration with his late partner Alex Hirst.The show was born out of what its curator calls “an ongoing dialogue between Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Autograph ABP,” a London-based organization co-founded by Fani-Kayode in 1988 that promotes photography addressing issues of race, cultural identity, and human rights. The exhibit will be on display at the Neil L. and Angelica Zander Rudenstine Gallery, located in the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research, through May 15.“When Professor Gates called at the end of last year to discuss the possibility of curating a show for the Rudenstine Gallery’s spring 2009 slot, we were of course delighted by the prospect of this partnership,” said the show’s curator Renée Mussai, archive project manager at Autograph ABP.Often sexually charged, the pictures are also infused with religious, racial, and ethnic themes and reflect the artist’s efforts to understand his own life, his cultural heritage, and his homosexuality, all while living in exile.Fani-Kayode was born in Nigeria in 1955 to a family with strong ties to both politics and the Yoruba religion. Following a military coup in 1966, the artist fled with his family to England. In 1976, he moved to the United States to further his studies. After receiving his undergraduate degree in 1980, he earned a master’s of fine arts from the Pratt Institute in 1983. His career was cut short by a brief, unexpected illness in 1989 when he was just 34.A self-described outsider, much of Fani-Kayode’s work is informed by what Mussai calls “the complexity of experience of his life, and the multiple positions he occupied — as an African in exile, a political black gay man in 1980s London, a struggling young artist on the margins of society, a son estranged from his familial and cultural traditions yearning to get in touch with his roots and ancestral heritage.”The Du Bois Institute’s show, which coincides with the 20th anniversary of the artist’s death, is the first major solo exhibit of Fani-Kayode’s work in the United States. It was developed as a retrospective, said Mussai, incorporating a variety of photos ranging from his early career to those shot during the last years of his life. Mussai hopes the exhibit will not only expose a new audience to Fani-Kayode’s work, but also encourage a broad discourse.“Fani-Kayode’s photographs draw upon a plethora of image references and a multiplicity of sources that defy a linear reading or easy categorization.“I am hoping to be able to take viewers to a place that opens up and encourages a dialogue, a debate: to provide the audience with an intimate glimpse into the complexities Fani-Kayode was dealing with in his work.”The heart of the exhibit revolves around six large-scale color photographs produced at the end of the artist’s career, between 1988 and 1989, as part of two major bodies of work, “Ecstatic Antibodies” and “Bodies of Experience.” The show also includes a series of 10 black-and-white photographs ranging in size, as well as a 10-minute video that features a series of additional images as well as excerpts of the artist’s writings.A gallery talk featuring comments from Gates, Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research; Mark Sealy, director of Autograph ABP; and Mussai will take place in early March.last_img read more

Multitasking homeowners demand more of their space

first_imgWashing clothes in the bedroom. Sending email from the laundry room.Busy Americans are demanding more from each room in the house, and spaces designed for multiple functions are popping up all over floor plans, design blogs and magazine spreads.“People multitask all the time. There is a definite correlation and carry-over in the home,” said Wendy Danziger, owner of Danziger Design in Bethesda, Md. She has helped clients create rooms for eating and watching television; housing guests and working from home; sleeping and doing laundry.Some homebuilders have added space for seating, desks and charging stations in the laundry room.“It’s happening all over,” Danziger said. “There’s a lot of strategy that goes on — a lot of compromise.”Furniture manufacturers, too, are helping to make every square inch count, said Pat Bowling, spokeswoman for the American Home Furnishings Alliance in High Point, N.C. Modern pieces include end tables that double as file cabinets, coffee tables with adjustable heights to accommodate working at a computer or eating, and chests with docking stations for electronics.The portability of laptops, tablets and other devices means you don’t need a dedicated home office to work at home. People can — and do — use electronics in the family room, bedroom and kitchen.“Today’s furniture is multi-tasking furniture that can help you stay organized, stay connected and keep clutter at bay,” said Kim Shaver of Hooker Furniture in Martinsville, Va. “In versatile styles and silhouettes, these pieces fit any room — from the kitchen to the bedroom and from the family room to the entry hall or foyer — and provide multiple functions in each room.”Danziger says a console table with hinged leaves is a good option for a TV room that sometimes needs to become a dining room: When guests come for dinner, just slide the table away from the wall under the television and extend the leaves to create a table that seats up to six people.Nesting tables — stacking tables of different sizes — also help increase the functionality of a space, she said. She often puts them on wheels so they can easily be rolled to another area of the room for another use.She has worked with retirees downsizing to a smaller home and with young professionals squeezed into urban apartments.“Once home offices were the rage,” she said. Now, “it is not unusual to see living spaces where people eat, sleep, work and play games just for the sake of living in a city where one can walk to everything, including their office.”Frank Pitman of Frank Pitman Designs in Orange County, Calif., also has seen the trend. “There’s a lot of dual -purpose space happening,” he said.He has had a growing number of clients putting laundry facilities in their bedroom closets. “They are already storing the clothing there. Why not wash the clothing right there?” he said.Some of his clients like having a room’s secondary use come as a surprise: Television or computer screens that seem to “appear from nowhere” are good examples, he said.Murphy beds, which are stored vertically in a cabinet along a wall, or murphy desks, which slide out of bookshelves, are another way to keep a space’s other function hidden.Often the need to get more use out of a space arises when an elderly parent joins the household, a grown child returns home or a young family hires a live-in nanny, said Amy Albert, editor of Custom Home Magazine in Washington, D.C.“Multiple generations needs multi-functioning space,” she said.last_img read more

PSG interested in signing Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez

first_img PSG coach Unai Emery is looking for a player who can play out wide and also as the striker, and both Jese and Lacazette fit this profile. 29/07/2016 Sport EN The Canarian forward’s exit may come in the form of a transfer or a loan – it could end up being something like the deal that took Alvaro Morata to Juventus.  Jese’s future looks like it lies far from Real Madrid, after Zinedine Zidane told him he was not being counted on for the season ahead. His agent Gines Carvajal has got to work and lined up a couple of moves, with L’Equipe saying that Paris Saint-Germain are in for the forward, using him as Plan B if their attempted to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon fails.
