Events • New York Advertising Festival 2016 – 'High School Girls' commercial for SHISEIDO (Watts of Tokyo) and the BURGER KING showcase for you on GoSee

24.05.2016 • So you wanna play the game? GoSee has two great reasons for you, why we love good ads so much. The first film, 'High School Girls', won the FIRST PRIZE AWARD plus Best of Show in the category film. It was entered by Shiseido Japan and plays with your perception. The second film is a BURGER KING showcase and the winner in the category AVANT-GARDE, artfully circumventing the social campaign trap by rubbing shoulders with its arch rival by asking for a peace dance. It's all for a good cause in the end on Peace Day, taking place on 21 September, which will peacefully unite fries all over the world. But GoSee for yourself.

“We would like to thank Yanagisawa, Jin Ohashi and, of course, the school “girls” for their amazing patience in striking poses and standing still in a 7-hour-long shoot,” Masato Kosukegawa, Creative Director Shiseido, tells us, who together with the agency Watts of Tokyo Ltd. is the happy winner of the Best of Show Award for “High School Girls” and extended its gratitude to the jury: “Our special thanks also go to Akira Shima, a copywriter of Shiseido, who passed...

Events • The trailer for the website Musikkompis.se launched by 'Tre' - DOP Magnus PETERSON c/o ANDREA HEBERGER

22.05.2016 • Share your music interests with people from different cultures – says the Swedish website Musikkompis.se initiated by 'Tre'. How did it happen? Naim Kassis, a 45-year-old pianist from Aleppo in Syria, came to Sweden a year ago and ended up in an asylum accommodation in northern Sweden, where he has given numerous concerts. On a cold winter day, he met Sabina Ddumba, and together they played a version of Sabina's hit single "Not too young", which attracted the whole accommodation to take part in the meeting. Magnus PETERSON c/o ANDREA HEBERGER was DOP of the trailer presented on GoSee for the project.

About musikkompis.se. We believe that music unites. That’s why we now start Musikkompis together with the mobile company 3. With Musikkompis, we give people a chance to meet through music. Play instruments together, go to concerts or talk music over a cup of coffee.

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...

Events • Wieden+Kennedy, Amsterdam presents 'SLEBS', an exhibition showcasing works of London-based artist & illustrator Dan Jamieson – don't miss the vernissage on 12 May, 2016

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...

Events • 'Private' and 'Acido Dorado' by photo artist Mona Kuhn in an exhibition at EUQINOMprojects in San Francisco including an artist talk with Darius Himes/Christie's and soon in an illustrated book from Steidl

04.05.2016 • At the moment, an extensive exhibition with works by Mona Kuhn lures photo fans from all corners of the world to San Francisco's Bay Area. 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...
