Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs.

Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition, as you may see in this image (in memory of Neil Armstrong) reproducing one of the 40.000 images captured by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

His next big show (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) will take place at Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany, from October 6 to November 4, 2012 .

HISTORIC MARILYN MONROE ”RED VELVET” PHOTOGRAPHIC COLOR SEPARATIONS OFFERED FOR SALE

 The most glamorous icon of the 20th Century died 50 years ago, August 5, 1962

 ***

A Las Vegas art collector and owner of the original, one-of-a-kind color separations used to produce the iconic “Golden Dreams” calendars from the famous 1949 Marilyn Monroe “Red Velvet” photo shoot, is offering them for sale. These color separations were originally created and owned by the John Baumgarth Company and were discovered as part of a corporate art collection in 2010. The collection is in pristine condition and archivally preserved and presented.

The most glamorous icon of the 20th Century was captured for all time in a moment of youthful, exuberant sensuality – an unforgettable image that, more than 60 years later, communicates freshness. To reproduce the refined features, supple texture and luxurious tones that were so totally Marilyn, print artisans painstakingly created and corrected the many layers of film needed for the full color printing process to make the original Chromalin color proof – a masterpiece of printer’s art.

The Kodachrome photograph and twenty-one large format color separations (16” x 33”) offered for sale were used by Baumgarth to create the iconic image of Marilyn Monroe – she died 50 years ago, August 5, 1962 – featured in the first “Golden Dreams” calendar produced in 1951, before the identity of the blonde bombshell posing for the photos was known (the model wasn’t identified as Marilyn until 1952), and which went on to sell over eight million copies worldwide, making Marilyn the best-selling calendar girl of all time.

The collection also includes the “Lure of Lace” and “Entrancing” images that featured Marilyn wearing negligees in order to comply with U.S. postal regulations banning the transport of nude images.

The Kodachrome photograph is framed and the color separations are mounted and protected in OP3 museum-quality acrylic frames so that they may be appreciated, when artfully suspended, from both sides. These are the original separations used to produce the large format calendars and the only known surviving examples, which are documented to have changed hands through a series of corporate acquisitions spanning several decades.

When Marilyn showed up to do the calendar shoot at Tom Kelley‘s studio on Friday, May 27, 1949, her need was dire and immediate; her contracts with 20th Century Fox and Columbia had not been renewed and she was out of work.  The photo shoot was commissioned by Baumgarth, who paid Kelley $500 for the publication rights.

It has been reported that Marilyn received $50, which was exactly what she needed to get back her car that had been impounded. Marilyn only agreed to do the shoot if Kelley’s wife Natalie was present.

Only two of the 24 images taken during the shoot, entitled by Baumgarth “A New Wrinkle” and “Golden Dreams,” survived and made it to print, with the others mysteriously stolen from Kelley’s studio. “A New Wrinkle” graced one Baumgarth calendar, but the picture that captured a nation’s imagination was “Golden Dreams.”

Neither the photographer nor the 22-year-old blonde actress and model could have realized what an historic moment they were creating. In her contract with Kelley, the starlet signed under the pseudonym Mona Monroe (right). When her movie studio, 20th Century-Fox, first learned that the nude pinup hanging in gas stations from coast to coast was none other than its rising star, it was something of a scandal. The press assailed her with questions. Was it true she had posed with “nothing on”?

MARILYN REVIVES: A GRAPHIC LAY OUT OF THE RED VELVET PHOTO (BY ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI)

The studio’s initial reaction was to deny everything.  Studios such as 20th Century-Fox had stringent moral clauses in their contracts that were designed to intimidate actors and actresses. No celebrity had ever posed nude and then had the pictures distributed to a startled nation. Biographers agree that Marilyn was instrumental in persuading the studio that their natural inclination to deny the whole thing was the wrong way to go. Instead, Marilyn used an upcoming interview with Aline Mosby, a reporter with United Press International, to break the story on March 13, 1952:

“A photograph of a beautiful nude blonde on a 1952 calendar is hanging in garages and barbershops all over the nation today.  Marilyn Monroe admitted today that the beauty is she. She posed, stretched out on rumpled red velvet for the artistic photo 3 years ago because “I was broke and needed the money. Oh, the calendar’s hanging in garages all over town,” said Marilyn.  “Why deny it? You can get one any place.  Besides, I’m not ashamed of it.  I’ve done nothing wrong.”

The story ended up being picked up by every wire service and circulated around the world. The reaction was swift and immediate national forgiveness. Not only that, but the sensation of the pictures, her interview and all of the related controversy made Marilyn an even bigger star.

In December 1953, an astute young publisher named Hugh Hefner bought the rights from Baumgarth to reproduce the “Golden Dreams” image as the first “Sweetheart of the Month,” in the now historic inaugural issue of Playboy magazine. The success of that first issue enabled Hefner to continue producing the magazine and ultimately build his Playboy Empire.

In addition to the Red Velvet Collection, many of the original paintings in the Messenger Art Collection are being offered for sale.

MICK JAGGER: “YOU DON´T WANT TO PARTY EVERY NIGHT WITH THE DRUGS AND THE GIRLS AND THE ROCK’N’ROLL BUT SOME NIGHTS YOU MIGHT”

An unforgettable interview (2003) from The eBook “The Rolling Stones – 50 years”

“THE ROLLING STONES – 50 YEARS”: MONSTER-MEGA 2000 PAGES+EBOOK – The Early Stones

Paris in spring 2003, several weeks before the Stones kicked off their 2003 world tour. There is music coming out of the lobby bar at one of the most famous hotels in Paris. One sign that we’ve popped into a very special place is the pricing of two long drinks and a club sandwich. You can almost afford an inner European flight for that money – and I’m not talking economy class. Three other German journalists have the pleasure to talk to Mick before I get to do it. And you never know: do they ask questions that will make him upset? Is he not going to be in the mood for any further conversation with a journalist? But it doesn’t seem so. Mick’s publicist, a very kind , friendly and funny guy takes me up the stairs to the first floor. “Don’t you wanna look into my bag in terms of security,” I ask the gentleman. Walking half a meter before me he turns his head around, smiles and says: “Nope, we are not Madonna.”

Entering the room Mick appears to be so much smaller than you know him from TV appearances. Smiling, he welcomes me with a hand-shake and is ready to talk right away…

Hi Mick, what have been your career highlights?

Mick Jagger: It was great to getting the band going the very first time because you start to be successful for the first year or first couple of years and you´re like: All your little teenage dreams are, so to speak, coming true and you feel young and very ambitious and you’re starting to be successful – that feels really good, like getting your first job, doesn’t it?

What about the bad times?

Mick Jagger: Bad times. There’re lots of bad times in a career, you know. The Rolling Stones have had a pretty long career and always there´s been good things and bad things. People die, you know. But I mean I guess most of the times it´s been pretty positive.

What would you do if you had the chance to use a time  machine?

Mick Jagger: It´s quite interesting, you know. Do you ever read history books about “What if?”. What if Napoleon had conquered Russia and then it wouldn´t be like … and so it´s interesting if you follow these books through to their logical conclusions but it´s not really interesting unless you can do that. You know it is easy for me to say: Would have been nice if I had been a film director or a ballet dancer or an accountant. What would have happened? But you don’t know the answer.

Do believe in fate?

Mick Jagger: I don´t. But the problem is that your not completely in control of your life when you´re young. 

Have you ever told your children to do or not to do  something because of your experience?

Mick Jagger: You´re always telling and that’s what it is to do, it’s parenthood. What you do is giving parts of your experience to them. I mean, you don´t always save them from real life. Or you can use examples. That´s what you do with children all the time. 

Someone once said: If you don´t advance, you´re dead. So:  How far can you still advance after your big success?

Mick Jagger: You have to keep yourself from just repeating yourself. It´s very difficult to do in anything. Wether you´re a writer or a journalist or a painter. Especially the rock business is very narrow. It´s like a very narrow political party with very few views in it. And as soon as you´re striving it goes: “Oh no, wait a minute!” If you do a rock show with 25 half naked dancers, everyone goes: “Oh no but it´s awful, you can´t do that!” So the confines of it are very narrow and it´s very hard to keep anything interesting going within the narrow confines. So there are many, many conventions that you have to keep up.

Do you think that bands these days also have the chance  of becoming as big as the Stones are?

Mick Jagger: I think so. I mean the only thing is it´s been going longer as a musical form. So rock music as defined by, let’s say four blokes playing in a band, was quite new in the early 60ies. But now it´s 40 years old as you put it out. The whole idea and form is older now. So how many generations? Two? Three generations? So it´s like an old thing being handed down now. It´s probably more difficult to make such splash as it was, for that reason.

Do you have to do so much light show and other stuff on  stage?

Mick Jagger: It depends where you´re touring. In the early 60ties where you were playing in theatres, people don´t do a tremendous amount of all that stuff. And it was going on in the sixties. That´s where it all started, I mean there were a lot of that. But we´re going to play a theatre show that is very little, so in the Circus Krone show shouldn’t be much pyrotechnics. But if you´re playing in a bigger stadium, you gotta do something visual. You can´t just go on. That’s like a guitarist view of world.

Doesn’t that keep the attention away from the audience?

Mick Jagger: Yeah, but I think that really when you go to a big stadium show the people that go, “the punters” as we call them, are not really just going to hear some pristine music, it´s just a sort of allround experience. It´s halfway between going to a football match and a music show. You´re really looking forward, you want something to enhance your experience visually. To amplify and enhance the experience you need a bit more than just the music. The thing is that musicians think that´s all the people want, but I don´t share that view. 

Are you very extraordinary when it comes to choose the  hotel room or suite?

Mick Jagger: I don´t know, not really. (laughs) It´s sort of silly. When I´m working I like to have certain things. When I´m not working I do not really care about them very much. But when you´re working you want certain things. I don´t like to have a noisy traffic too much because then I can´t sleep for the show. The problem is: When you´re working you don´t want to sleep late because you want to be ready for a nine o´clock show rather than nine to five job. So I don´t like staying in the hotels that are noisy. 

You are over 60 years of age. Do you still like to party with the girls, drugs and Rock´n´Roll after every show?

Mick Jagger: No, you don´t want to party every night with the drugs and the girls and the Rock’n’Roll but some nights you might … 

Are the hotel-lobbies still as crowded with groupies as they used to be?

Mick Jagger: Well, some places are good. But it is not really where you look for your entertainment, to be honest.

What music are you currently listening to?

Mick Jagger: I don´t know, I listen to a lot of stuff that I bought when I was to see what´s in the store. The other day I bought some new records. I listen to some jazz. I mean I listen to everything to be honest. I´ve been to India, listened to a lot of Hindi-dance-music, it´s like pop here in England. 

Someone said that this tour was announced to be the last …

Mick Jagger: Well, I don´t know. You know, that’s the entertaining thing: You don´t really know what´s gonna happen. I´m planning and trying to work out what´s gonna happen next. So I´ve been working on what´s gonna happen at the next Rolling Stones shows.   

“GRANDPARENTS AND GRANDCHILDREN”: IN ITALY AN INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL FOR ALL EUROPEAN FILM MAKERS

 

On the wake of the success of national writing techniques and short film festivals for the Schools “Unknown Pens & Videos” and of the experience of the competition “A tree for the grandchildren – Grandparents Day the OSA onlus Association, Abbadia San Salvatore (Siena,Italy) presents the first edition of the international short film festival NONNIcorti , an open competition for all Italian and European film makers on the theme of “Grandparents & Grandchildren”, promoted by the Association OSA-ONLUS in collaboration with Plant Publicity Holland and Colonnetti Foundation (Turin), Municipality of Abbadia San Salvatore, the Province of Siena Administration and OKAY! magazine.

The theme is in fact the sole condition for participation: it is a show of short films on the figure of the “grandparents”:

  • the relationship between generations,

  • the cultural and social change between generations,

  • the “life pills” to teach and to hand down to “grandchildren”,

  • the figure of the aged people in the family and in the community,

  • to redeem the value of Grandparents, to spread social and cultural messages, natural holders, to share their experiences, keeping them as a treasure and transferring them to new generations.

The short film was chosen (maximum length 15 minutes) as a form of expression to continue the link with the cultural experiences previously promoted by OSA Association, which were award-winning, both for the interest shown by the public and for the number of competitors on the whole national territory.

The short film is thus the “fil rouge” connecting the existing cultural initiatives with the new born NONNIcorti. The form of the short film was chosen for its nature of “immediate message”, for its short language, for its synthetic features, for its relatively easy production, without excessive use of money and resources, for its shortness, which makes it very usable by everybody.

The competition will take place from 15 to 20 (day of prize-giving) October 2012 in Abbadia San Salvatore (Siena, Italy).

There will be: COMMISSION award selected by local and national experts and professionals; GRANDPARENTS award selected by some grandfathers, also elderly members of the Centre “L’Incontro” in Abbadia S. S.; GRANDCHILDREN award selected by the students of the Secondary School of Abbadia S.S. ; ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK award selected by international experts and professionals

The artworks must be submitted by 30th June 2012 to OSA ONLUS Casella Postale 35 – Abbadia San Salvatore (Siena). They will be archived at the Municipal VideoCentre of Abbadia San Salvatore, in the VIDEO-MEMORY Section. The competition announcement can be found in the website www.pennesconosciute.it

TECHNOLOGIES AND CREATIVITY TO IMPROVE AUTISM EDUCATION IN INDIA

Great need to improve autism education in India’, say researchers Academics from the University of Birmingham are in India sharing their expertise in the area of special educational needs, and autism in particular. Typically 1 in 100 people are on the autism spectrum. While general awareness of autism has grown in India in recent times various misconceptions still exist. The public and some professionals need better understanding of what it means to have autism and how it affects people. There is also a need to share notions of  ‘best practice’ in the education of children and young people on the autism spectrum. 

Joining volunteers from the charity Hope & Compassion and colleagues from Cardiff Metropolitan University, Birmingham academics will impart skills and knowledge to people with limited access to training in autism, and introduce new technologies and equipment to help engage children who are hard to reach.  The group will be running seminars and conducting training with practitioners and parents. Additionally, they will undertake teaching sessions with children using interactive software (Reactickles and Somantics), which is specifically designed for children with autism.

The visit will also strengthen existing partnerships and create new collaborations with academics at the University of Delhi, Khalsa College, the charity Action for Autism and Pingalwara Charitable Society, as well as Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (a local government initiative for children with special educational needs and disabilities). Dr Karen Guldberg, Senior Lecturer in Autism Studies and Director of the Autism Centre for Education and Research at the University of Birmingham, said: “We hope to set up sustainable networks and partnerships and will undertake a training needs analysis with a sample of parents and teachers. This will identify how we might be able to offer meaningful, long-term partnership and support.”

Manpreet Kaur from the charity Hope & Compassion, said: It is with the help of volunteers and academics that we are now able to bring new knowledge and research into areas that normally would not cater for the various disabilities.  This enables progression and development for children, families, carers and institutions.”

When I read Susan Kahn “Empty Moon” poem at her  “Emptinesscafe”Blog, I instinctively thought to a recent “Lacer/actions” artwork I’ve created with my torn posters and urban signs images (“Voices and Echoes From The Cities”, 2011, Canvas+ mixed media, 70×50). I told Susan about that and she accepted the challenge to see some of her beautiful verses transferred on a videoclip. So, here’s the result…

Susan Kahn Poem and my artwork were fused in a 30 seconds videoclip. Inspiring words from the world meet an image of ripped ads and urban signs. From Animoto library I chose a capturing soundtrack, “Flying”, by talented composer, pianist and performer Mike Strickland. Welcome to a sensorial experience and to an emotional message-massage. Like echoes…like Lacer/actions.

ABOUT SUSAN KAHN

http://emptinesscafe.wordpress.com/

http://www.emptinessteachings.com/Emptiness.html

 Susan says: “I work as a psychotherapist in private practice and as a nondual consultant. Nondual means not two, not separate. My teaching, writings and poetry reflect a way of seeing everything as interrelated, interconnected and as lacking a truly separate essence or nature. In Buddhism, this lack of “own being” is referred to as emptiness. This perspective is reflected in western Postmodern philosophy as well. It is the notion of a fundamentally separate self and all other phenomena that is seen in both traditions as the main cause of human suffering and conflict, and that I find to be an inspirational insight.
