Events • PHOTO CHAT USA for GoSee at the closing night of the Los Angeles art scene: 'Catherine Opie: 700 NIMES ROAD', the photographic house call at the estate of movie legend Elizabeth Taylor, an exhibition and GoSee book tip

09.05.2016 • Catherine Opie, fine-art photographer who lives and works in Los Angeles, gained international fame with her unsparing photographic portraits of transgender, tattooed, and homosexual people – and not lastly due to her no less powerful self-portraits. The openly gay woman and mother of a son now presents two works from her oeuvre and a book "Catherine Opie: 700 Nimes Road" on the occasion of the closing events in Pacific Design Center, which were created during 6 months when Catherine Opie was documenting the Californian Bel Air estate of deceased movie legend Elizabeth Taylor. GlamPR.com and GoSee met up with Catherine Opie and spoke with her about the show, her experiences and her creative process.

Introduced to Elizabeth Taylor by their mutual accountant, she was approached a few times to work with the Hollywood icon. However, she never felt a need to do more portraits about the stars, and was more intrigued by the human side of the larger-than-life celebrity.

After Opie worked on another photo documentary project, the inauguration of President Barack Obama, and inspired...

04.05.2016 • Wieden+Kennedy, Amsterdam, presents the exhibition 'SLEBS' showcasing humorous works of London-based artist & illustrator Dan Jamieson. It will all be celebrated at the opening on 12 May in the agency rooms, and creatives from the agency and the entire city are expected who will meet up with icons such as Aubergene Hackman, Dolly Partyon or Porn Connery. The agency on the works: “Dan's portraits of icons in contemporary culture peel back the layers of celebrity to reveal a humorous observation of their character. His artistic style adopts a blend of naivety, accuracy, repetitive patterns, and frenetic mark making. The artwork often incorporates a narrative commentary with scrawled text, gently puncturing the bubble of celebrity. For 'SLEBS', he presents a body of entirely brand new works and prints including a series of 'Dutch Masters' pieces. He invites you to laugh, point and stare.”

We asked the illustrator and wanted to find out what awaits us: “SLEBS stands for celebs, which is short for celebrities – my work mainly centers around celebrity – I have a keen interest in the...

On exhibit are the series 'Private' and 'Acido Dorado'. On 30 April, Darius Himes, International Head of Photographs at Christie's, had a chat with the photographer about her ideas and the creative process. And at the same time, she is preparing her new monograph at Steidl, which will be released in fall.

EUQINOMprojects explains the exhibited series like this: “Mona Kuhn is best known for her large-scale, dreamlike photographs of the human form. Classically trained, Kuhn’s compositions are painterly studies, each photograph thoughtfully arranged. Each image is multidimensional with a careful selective focus, giving the viewer the opportunity to only enter specific areas of the frame and leaving the remainder up to their imagination. Her work often references classical themes, but her photography is unusual in that she develops close relationships with her subjects, resulting in images of remarkable intimacy. A sublime sense of comfort and...
