In honor of MLK Day, we are sharing this work entitled “Your Choice” by Emma Amos which depicts Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X alongside one another. The work itself can be displayed in two different orientations, with one figure facing upward while the other is upside down. No matter how you choose to view it, Amos presents the two men as connected and inseparable, capturing the essence of contrasting philosophies bound by a shared pursuit of racial justice.
Today is your last chance to see this work on view in "Emma Amos: Color Odyssey."

In John Edmond's "A Guard for the Gods," a bare-chested, behatted young man stands confidently before a collection of African art arrayed on a table. As in other works in Edmonds's exhibition A Sidelong Glance, both the sculptures and the man are presented as potential objects of desire and possession for the viewer.  
Yet here, the man’s cap seems to suggest the authority of a museum guard, someone tasked with ensuring the safety of the work while it’s on display for the public. Questions of security and ownership are further heightened by the hat’s “POLICE” emblem. The artwork highlights, even if subtly, how property and possession are intimately linked to legacies of violence—state-sanctioned, colonial, or otherwise.
Now in its final weeks, don't miss your chance to see A Sidelong Glance before it closes September 26.

Chateau d’Usse
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
Chateau d’Usse is located in the Indre-et-Loire department, France. The first castle on this site was built of wood and stone by the Viking warrior Gelduin I, around 1000 AD. The property was passed to Comte de Blois, who rebuilt the fortress into a family home. Blois had the prison tower and the first chapel added to the castle. The Espinay family purchased the castle in the 15th century and renovated the structure in the Italian Renaissance style. During this time, the castle was still accessed by a drawbridge with a moat. In the 16th century, Charles D’Espinay and Lucrece de Pons oversaw the building of the center section of the castle. In the 17th century, with the king’s patronage, the chateau was honored and became a marquisate. The castle sits on the edge of the Chinon forest and overlooks the Indre Valley and the Indre River. The nearly 1500 acres of gardens are terraced and include ornamental lakes and fountains. The Saint Anne Renaissance chapel is located in the gardens. The stables were built around 1510, while an orangery was constructed in 1664. The turreted castle continued to undergo alterations during the 19th century, which includes a neo-gothic gallery. The castle is owned by the Blacas d’Aulps family, who purchased the property in 1802. The interior boasts an octagonal dungeon, 14th century cellars, spiral staircases, and more. The chateau inspired author Charles Perrault’s tale of Sleeping Beauty. Chateau d’Usse is open to the public.

MORE FINE ART OF LETTERS FROM HERMANN ZAPF
We thought we had completed processing the massive, multi-year donation from our good friend and major benefactor Jerry Buff. Recently, however, we unearthed a relatively small cache from the Buff donation that we had not addressed, and in it we found this trade edition of the Grolier Club’s The Fine Art of Letters: The Work of Hermann Zapf, published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Club in New York in 2000. We already hold Jerry Buff’s deluxe copy of this title, which includes a copy of the trade edition, which we have posted on twice already. This copy, however has a special association.
The Grolier Club held a members-only opening for the exhibition on December 12, 2000. As a member, Jerry was invited to attend, which he did, and had this copy of the exhibition publication signed by the great German calligrapher and type designer Hermann Zapf on the flyleaf in his distinctive calligraphic handwriting. Also laid in is the original invitation to the opening. A lovely association copy that we will add to the collection along with the deluxe edition. Shown here from top to bottom:
1.) The gold-stamped cloth cover and spine of The Fine Art of Letters. 2.) Alphabet for a poster for the exhibition "Herman Zapf, Kalligraphie und Elektronik, Schrift und Buchgraphik," at the Institut für Neue Technische Form in Darmstadt, 1973. 3.) Zapfino Script. 4 alphabets based on Zapf's calligraphy for a sketch book executed in 1944 in Bordeaux, France. The finished type was issued by Linotype Library GmbH in Bad Homburg in 1998. The basic alphabet is shown with the figures and various forms for swashes, final, ligatures, and special characters. 4.) Zapfino Script. No. 4 is illustrated with a selection from 100 ornaments which belong to Zaptino Script. In the last line are extra big lowercase swashes to allow the possibility of overlapping characters to give a calligraphic look. 5.) Noris Script. A broad-edged pen script designed 1971-1975 especially designed for photocomposition for the D. Stempel AG and Mergenthaler Linotype Company, New York (released in 1976). The quotation from the writing master Johann Muscat is a sentence in which each word starts with a progressive letter of the alphabet. 6.) List of alphabets and typefaces designed by Hermann Zapf from 1938-1998. 7.) Calligraphic cover designed by Hermann Zapf for the invitation card to the Grolier Club exhibition, December 12, 2000. 8.) Text for the invitation to the exhibition that was curated by American calligrapher, book designer, and typographer Jerry Kelly. 9.) Signed, calligraphic presentation inscription from Hermann Zapf to Jerry Buff, December 12, 2000. 10.)A page with 60 Z's to celebrate the 60th birthday of Bror Zachrisson (1906-1983) in 1966, founder of the Grafiska Institutet in Stockholm in 1944. Written with different writing tools on Swedish Tumba paper.
The Fine Art of Letters: The Work of Hermann Zapf was designed by Jerry Kelly in collaboration with Hermann Zapf, typeset in Zapf Renaissance Roman and Zapfino Script, and printed in an edition of 1,050 copies on Mohawk Superfine by Finlay Printing.

Christian Dior died of a heart attack on October 24, 1957 while on retreat in Italy. Five days later, his funeral was held in Paris at the chapel of Saint-Honore-d’Eylau where his coffin was covered in a blanket of his favorite flower, the lily of the valley. The funeral was attended by almost 10,000 people (2,000 inside the church) all dressed in black. Yves Saint Laurent, who had trained as his assistant for three years would assume the role of @Dior’s artistic director at the age of 21, and would be followed by Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and currently Maria Grazia Chiuri. 
In Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams, visitors have an opportunity to see the original creations of Christian Dior and how each successive designer adapted his lines and codes for each new generation.

Hohenwerfen Castle
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
Hohenwerfen Castle is located in Werfen, Austria. The Medieval castle was one of three fortresses ordered to be built by Archbishop Gebhard. Due to political unrest and conflict, it became necessary to place the archbishop under armed protection. Hohenwerfen Castle was built in 1077 upon a precipice overlooking the city. The fortress is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennen Mountains. It reached its current size in the 15th century. During the 16th century, peasant revolts led to the castle being plundered, burned, and damaged. It was repaired, and a watchtower and hidden staircase were added. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the castle served as a prison. With the secularization of Salzburg, in 1803, the castle fell to Bavarian rule and was left to deteriorate. From 1824-1833, Archduke Johann, the emperor’s brother, had the castle repaired and restored. The castle was used as a hunting retreat. In 1898, Archduke Eugen purchased the estate and expanded the castle while adding to his collection of art and weaponry. The main building of the castle complex was destroyed by fire in 1931. In 1938, the castle served as a Nazi education camp and military training center, and from 1945-1987 the Salzburg police school used the fortress. In 1987, the castle was opened to the public for guided tours. The estate boasts a torture chamber, ancient weapons, a bell tower, and more. The fortress serves as an “Adventure Castle,” featuring events, concerts, and theater performances. There’s an exhibition highlighting the practice of sorcery and those executed by Salzburg’s royal court in 1675-79 and another exhibition to the film “Where Eagles Dare.”Hohenwerfen Castle has a birds of prey museum, exhibits, and demonstrations. There’s a tavern, a Knights’ Store, and yearly events. The castle serves as a venue and film location. Due to the steep walking path, there is an elevator lift ticket available for purchase.

case study - embodiment now
in 2017 i founded the london queer artist network with the intent of creating a way for queer contemporary artists in london to more easily collaborate, keep up to date with works and projects, and realise creative ambitions. as part of this, i curated a show of queer artists working with the moving image called embodiment now.
this show was held at LOFT @ croydon arts store, a community space in croydon i had helped set up in this new venue only months beforehand. i handled every aspect of this show, from conception, venue scouting, liaison and booking, artist liaison, technical provisions where artists could not provide their own tech, promotions and poster design, install, private view and refreshments, and deinstall.
the show was a great success, and went on to be written about in LOFTy thoughts, a book published by croydon arts store reflecting on the triumphs of the space during its time as a community-led gallery.

The cyanotype printing process Frederick DeBourg Richards used for this work involved combining two chemicals to produce photographic prints in ethereal shades of blue, which here echo the hues of the sea and sky. See this photograph on view in our installation "Seascapes."
