Moscow's Garage Museum moving to Rem Koolhaas-designed home

Garage Museum in Gorky Park, overview Moscow's Garage Museum of Contemporary Art is headed to a new, permanent home -- a Rem Koolhaas-designed building in Gorky Park that updates a Soviet Modernist landmark. Garage was founded in 2008 and initially housed in the Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage, designed by the Constructivist architect Konstantin Melnikov. Rem Koolhaas and his OMA studio are behind the new museum building -- in fact a preservation project that has transformed Vremena Goda (Seasons of the Year), a Soviet Modernist restaurant built in 1968 and housed in a prefabricated concrete pavilion, into a contemporary museum.

Tracey Emin curates Egon Schiele in Vienna exhibition

Tracey Emin, "Dolde Grande 1," 2013 British artist and "enfant terrible" Tracey Emin is the subject of a large-scale exhibition opening at Vienna's Leopold Museum this month where, in addition to presenting her own works, she'll share a selection of drawings by one of her key inspirations, Egon Schiele. "Where I Want to Go" at the Leopold Museum will feature more than 80 works by Emin, including acrylic paintings, gouaches, videos, installations, photographs and bronze sculptures. Recent and new works and installations will be juxtaposed with drawings and written documents by Egon Schiele that have been personally selected by Emin. Belonging to the "Young British Artists" generation that also includes Damien Hirst and Sarah Lucas, Emin, a leading figure in contemporary art, is known for controversial works such as the Turner-shortlisted "My Bed." Feminism runs through many of Emin's works, which often draw on her own biography and cover themes of provocation and sexuality.


Paris's star ballet dancer Aurelie Dupont to bow out

Paris Opera ballet star Aurelie Dupont gives a press conference on April 15, 2015 in Paris to bid farewell to the stage Aurelie Dupont, a principal ballerina for the Paris Opera, will step down from the star position next month at age 42 after performing "L'Histoire de Manon", which will be shown in hundreds of cinemas across Europe and North America. With an emotional smile, Dupont told a news conference Wednesday that she was moving on after 32 years -- 17 of them as principal dancer -- to become the Opera's Ballet Mistress, teaching the company's classes and running the dancers through their rehearsals. Benjamin Millepied, director of dance at the Paris Opera -- and also the husband of actress Natalie Portman, whom he choreographed in the movie "Black Swan" -- called Dupont "the best of the Paris Opera's dance school".


Royal Opera's Pappano says 'mathematician conductors' fail music

Japan artist on trial over vagina art says fighting for free expression

Japanese artist Megumi Igarashi, known as Rokudenashiko, holds her artwork after a news conference following a court appearance in Tokyo By Shiori Ito Megumi Lim TOKYO (Reuters) - A Japanese artist on trial for obscenity after making objects modeled on her vagina said on Wednesday that there was nothing wrong with her artwork and her arrest showed how far Japan was behind the West in terms of sexual equality. Megumi Igarashi, 43, was arrested last year after building a kayak with a top shaped like her vagina and sending 3D printer data of her scanned genitalia, the digital basis for the boat, to a number of donors. Her arrest, on suspicion of distributing obscene materials, triggered debate in Japan over women's rights and artistic freedom. "The fact that I was arrested for this at all shows that Japan is still very backwards about women's sexual expression, that it is not acknowledged at all except as something for men's pleasure," said Igarashi, who works under the name "Rokudenashiko" or "good-for-nothing girl." "There's huge resistance to women using their body to express themselves," she told Reuters after her first trial hearing on Wednesday.

From Royal Ballet to Broadway... via the shower

Max von Essen, Leanne Cope, Christopher Wheeldon and Robert Fairchild onstage at "An American In Paris" Broadway opening night at Palace Theatre on April 12, 2015 in New York City Leanne Cope built a career in the rarefied world of Britain's Royal Ballet. So it was something of a shock when acclaimed choreographer Christopher Wheeldon asked her to sing in a shower cubicle. It was an unorthodox audition for Broadway's newest star, who made her New York theater debut Sunday night in new musical "An American in Paris" -- a recrafted, modernized version of the 1951 Oscar-winning film. "I got a message from Christopher over Facebook saying I heard you used to sing in the school choir and would you be interested in singing for me?" Cope told AFP ahead of New York's star-studded opening night.
