BSA Special Feature: Faith47’s New LGBT Themed Mural in Manchester for “Cities of Hope”
Cities of Hope Mural Project creates more than a selection of eye popping visuals for Manchester, it creates community. Pairing artists with local grassroots organizations, the content and themes are related to the neighborhood and the local issues in many ways.
South African Street Artist Faith47 brought her socially conscious practice to combine the Triangle Project back home with the Partisan Collective in Manchester to create this new kissing couple for a slice of wall. Here her focus is to support LGBT peoples’ rights to access a safe environment away from the commercial venues in other parts of the city.
“Relationships rise and fall, societies blossom and crumble,” says faith47. “The profound connectedness between us creates and destroys life. We are sensitive and caring, yet at the same time vulnerable and cruel.”
NYCHOS: Making of Vienna Therapy. “Dissection of Sigmund Freud”
An unusual tour through some of the cultural institutions and locations in Vienna associated with Sigmund Freud, as seen through one of the cities newer inhabitants, the dissectionist Nychos. A dual promotion of tourism in the city as well as the artist himself and his new show opening at Jonathan Levine this Saturday in New York, the artist gives you a backstage view of how that crazy Freud brain sculpture was conceived and made this spring to ready it for last weeks’ debut on 23rd street in front of the Flat Iron Building.
LIVE Webcam of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s “Floating Piers”
First it was Christ walking on water, now it’s Christo. At 80, and without his dear love at his side, their project is now something they can share with thousand of others with “Floating Piers”
