david hockney exhibition Do MAC

Beloved for his cool, crystalline paintings of sunlit California bungalows and poolside male nudes of the 1960s and ’70s, David Hockney is often called Britain’s greatest living artist and even the world’s most popular living painter. The cult of Hockney, who is now 79, continues with a batch of new books, including the catalog to “82 Portraits and 1 Still-Life,” mounted at the Royal Academy of Arts in London last summer, and “A History of Pictures: From the Cave to the Computer Screen,” a lavishly illustrated dialogue between the artist and the art critic Martin Gayford.

The Rolling Stones have created a lavish, over-priced celebration of themselves at the Saatchi Gallery in London.  The exhibit will be traveling to cities across the USA and Australia.  It's hard not to love them for it. We're greeted by a wall of screens pulsing with Mick Jagger's trademark strut and snatches of the great Rolling Stones' riffs and licks.The footage at the start of Exhibitionism, a massive gallery show devoted to the Rolling Stones in London, begins with an early '60s gig; Jagger is shirtless and throwing buckets of water over a tiny, bouncing crowd. It ends with their long-overdue and triumphant Glastonbury debut in 2013.

Pablo Picasso  

October 25, 1881 – April 8, 1973

Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France. Regarded as one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907), and Guernica (1937), a portrayal of the Bombing of Guernica by the German and Italian airforces at the behest of the Spanish nationalist government during the Spanish Civil War.

Uluru night 4

Deep within Australia’s vast desert, a tremendous tower of rock has been forming for some 600 million years. For Aborigines, Uluru is sacred, full of ancestral spirits and tales of the past. For tourists, it is a place of historical intrigue and natural beauty. However, for British artist Bruce Munro, this ancient monolith has become the backdrop for his latest work of art. As night falls across the Red Centre, Field of Light comes to life, with 50,000 flower-like lights glowing against the darkness.

"Man, Controller of the Universe"

Diego Rivera (December 8, 1886 – November 24, 1957) was born in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, to a well-to-do family. Rivera was descended, on his mother's side, from Jews who converted to Roman Catholicism, and, on his father's side, from Spanish nobility. Rivera was an active communist, and twice husband of Frida Kahlo (1929–1939 and 1940–1954). His large wall works in fresco helped establish the Mexican Mural Renaissance. Between 1922 and 1953, Rivera painted murals among others in Mexico City, Chapingo, Cuernavaca, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York City.
