ISLAMABAD: Shaukat lauds miniature artists' works
By Mohammad Yasin

ISLAMABAD, Sept 20: Finance Minister Shaukat Aziz while appreciating the works of young painters said on Thursday that "miniature art reflects our culture and intricate values."
He made this observation while inaugurating an exhibition of miniature paintings, curated by Prof Bashir Ahmed, curator of miniature department, National College of Arts (NCA) in coordination with the Pakistan National Council of Arts at the National Gallery of Arts here Thursday evening.
A large numbers of painters, art connoisseurs, art teachers and government officials attended the function.
The minister said: "Miniature art portrays our most refined feelings, emotions and sentiments articulated and fine tuned by us through labour of centuries."
He said that miniature art had been an indigenous medium which "unfolds with force the colours and fine contours of our heritage where other mediums feel handicapped."
Mr Aziz pledged that the government would encourage young talents produced by the National College of Arts to rise on the international horizons of arts. He said, exhibition of miniature paintings would not only encourage young artists but also introduce this rare medium to the art lovers in the country as well as in the world.

A film on China's intellectual transformation
The four-part documentary series, which will be shot in digital High Definition (HD) under the direction of Peter Way and Wang Xiao Shuai, is being co-produced by Agathe Berman of Les films d'ici in Paris and Erica Marcus of San Francisco in collaboration with Muse Film and Television in New York. The four one-hour programs are designed for public television and educational use. The production budget for the four-part series is estimated at $1,412,748.
From the 10 th through the 14 th centuries China transformed itself into the wealthiest and most developed society the world had ever known. The images of that fabulous world as recounted by Marco Polo in the early part of the 14 th profoundly influenced European thinkers and propelled Europe into the most important of all revolutions - the Humanist revolution. The cities, roads, canals, boats, hospitals, markets, parks, and, not least of all, the paper money, which Marco Polo described along with the printed books he brought back stimulated new ideas and technology, which later transformed European society. Today, only the experts know anything about China's contribution to the Humanist revolution of the 15

an accessible broad overview and general description of artists Commentaries GaryHill; Fiona Hall; Ken Unsworth; Neshat b. Qazvin Iran 1957, lives works New York



This Education Kit has been produced in consultation with a group of specialist secondary art teachers, and tertiary and museum art educators. It is an information resource designed to supplement the catalogue and education kit of the Biennale of Sydney 2000.
The kit has been targeted at general adult readers, teachers and secondary students and developed to address the specific needs and issues of the new Stage 6 Syllabus for Visual Arts being introduced into New South Wales High Schools.
This new syllabus explores the idea of art practice being situated within a complex system of exchange. With this premise in mind, the Biennale of Sydney Education Kit 2001 contains two short essays that describe aspects of the contemporary art world. Available to access via PDF, these essays were originally delivered as lectures accompanied by slides. These texts contain informal generalisations, references and colloquialisms. However, the aim of these essays- The Museum as Encoded Space and What is the Artworld?, is to give an accessible broad overview and general description of some of the operations and interconnections that occur within the international and Australian art worlds.
In response to teacher's desires this kit also contains an overview of Everyday (Biennale of Sydney 1998) and the most recent exhibition, the Biennale of Sydney 2000. Accompanying these short texts are a selection of references to Australian and International newspaper and journal reviews.

MIRJAM KUITENBROUWER AA BRONSON DOUG AITKEN WALTER OBHOLZER "To Each Time its Art, to Art its Freedom." The words of its founders still determine the Secession's exhibition program for this, the year 2000. In keeping with recent tradition, the Secession will stand by its complex and critical approach to a coming to terms with the diverse fields of reality in contemporary art today. The attempt to translate questions arising from the personal, the regional, and the medium-specific into a common language might be seen as the connecting thread of the different exhibition projects. A characteristic feature of the way the Secession settles on its program is the democratic decision-making process instated by the statutes of 1897: the artists elected to the board (at present Manfred Erjautz, Matthias Herrmann, Johanna Kandl, Willi Kopf, Brigitte Kowanz, Anna Meyer, Constanze Ruhm, Stefan Sandner, Matta Wagnest, Martin Walde, Heimo Zobernig) invite other artists to exhibit. This makes a wide range of artistic positions possible; what they share is their striving toward a precision in artistic thought. All exhibitions are accompanied by a publication.

Deconstructing the Life-stories of Italian Women Artists, 1500-1750"
Julia K. Dabbs

University of Minnesota, Morris Abstract: vite of eight prominent women artists active in Italy between 1500 - 1750 to identify the thematic patterns and rhetorical strategies used to characterize these exceptional females. The overall structure of their relatively brief life-stories, as well as specific aspects of content such as anecdotes, will then be compared to those found in the biographical accounts of male artists from this period. Preliminary research suggests that women creators were perceived and mythologized in significantly different ways than their male colleagues; by revealing such distinctions, this study will refine our conception of the artist, and highlight the pervasive cultural prejudices that women encountered. This study will aid my development of a course on "Women and Art," and also result in an introductory essay for a book project entitled "Women and Art in the Early Modern Period: Sources and Documents."

"Kykdoos": a House for the Jungle
A house for the jungle, is this not a contradiction? The house as a symbol of security, but can one feel at home in the jungle?
The house as a place to come home to, to be oneself, to be inside the self, a place to rest, to dream, to dream even of the jungle... But the jungle has always been a symbol of the wild, the unknown, the last frontier. These are the last unspoiled places of the planet where nature is still pristine and unchanged by man, by society, by art... these are the emerald forests from the dawn of civilization. The jungle stands also for nostalgia for the pure state when paradisiacal man was still in environmental balance.
These are also the original poetical spaces where our gaze gets a chance to project its dreams far beyond the possibilities of the obvious, the limits of everyday reality. And is not all art, in the final analysis, a special place where poetry reigns, where the love for beauty and freedom takes its natural course?
This is the place where Heleen Cornet projects her own gaze, building her house, her own inner panorama of the jungle.

September 14, 2002 - February 23, 2003
Opening Reception: Friday, September 13, 2002 from 6 - 9 pm
DeCordova's landmark retrospective, Painting in Boston: 1950-2000, is unprecedented in scope and depth. Although the history of the first half century of the discipline-the period of the so-called "Boston School"-has been well studied and represented, this cannot be said for the latter half. DeCordova addresses this situation of neglect in a timely manner, while many of the significant figures of the period are still living and able to contribute their knowledge and perspective. Drawn from DeCordova's Permanent Collection, other museums, and private collections, 75 paintings by 67 artists will be mounted in the Museum's main public galleries, which total over 10,000 square feet of exhibition space. The exhibition is structured thematically around the four major stylistic tendencies that have dominated painting in the Boston area over the last five decades:

March 8 - May 25, 2003
Opening Reception: Friday, March 14, 6 - 8 pm LINCOLN-DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park is proud to be among the seven venues selected for this national traveling exhibition. Tools as Art celebrates the amazing variety of twentieth-century art that represents or incorporates tools and hardware. Tools as Art: The Hechinger Collection recognizes the ubiquity of tools in our lives with art that magically transforms utilitarian objects into fanciful works of beauty, surprise, and wit. Many works confound the barrier between art and life by recycling actual tools or exploiting the illusionistic properties of materials. Several reference labor and the change in production. Others mine the associative potential of tools and underscore the sheer beauty of a tool's design. A small complementary exhibition on the Tools as Art theme-culled from DeCordova Museum's Permanent Collection-is on view in the Arcade Gallery.

CLOUD CREEK INSTITUTE FOR THE ARTS, INC. is a Non-Profit, Public Benefit Corporation OUR MISSION To foster and advance creativity and interest in all the arts by helping new artists develop their talents and skills, and to create an environment of respect, appreciation, and support for the arts in the community at large. OUR BELIEFS We believe that: The arts are an integral part of human existence which may in fact define what humanity is; no other being on the planet creates for the express purpose of bringing truth and beauty to itself and others. The arts enrich and fulfill the lives of both those who create and those who appreciate them. The arts must never be viewed as the privilege or property of a elite group of creators or patrons; the arts are for everyone to create and appreciate regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, sex, economic status, etc. Artists must be empowered, encouraged, and enabled (educated) to do their work and enrich us all through their contributions to our culture. The general public must be empowered, encouraged, and enabled (educated) to avail itself of the opportunities for enrichment which are offered by appreciation of the arts. For a community to truly be creative it must be without "gatekeepers;" no one must interfere with the interaction between those who create and those who appreciate the creation; meaning, relevance, beauty, and even truth cannot be second-guessed by intermediaries; all artists not only must have access to the process of creation but also to venues of presentation as well.

Art Gallery of New South Wales

Sydney, , AU Australia
From the enormous variety of different painters and painting styles currently seen in Australia, the curator has selected a group of fourteen artists who are breaking new grounds in their careers with some of their best works to date. All are individuals, not part of a defined school, yet all share a concern for painting more than just a simulation of what is seen by the eye. Above all, they are concerned with notions of poetry and beauty which can be appreciated over and above their conceptual concerns. One of the artists in the exhibition, Howard Taylor, lives and works amongst the giant karri forests in the far south of Western Australia. While at first glance his work looks abstract, from closer viewing, you get something akin to the feeling of being in the land. In contrast to this, another Western Australian artist, Cathy Blanchflower, has painted brightly coloured paintings that create an optical illusion of shifting patterns that simulate the feeling of being constantly bombarded by visual stimuli such as television, advertising and flashing lights
