    Vice President Kamala Harris’s niece, Meena Harris, has been signed to helm a documentary film about three women who have used pioneering technologies and ideas to advance their fields. Meena, who is the daughter VP Harris’s sister Maya, will lead the documentary to be entitled, In Her Element, which will follow three innovators, including rocket scientist Aisha Bowe, music engineer Laura Escudé, and Venturi Racing Formula E racing team chief Susie Wolff. “Hosting conversations with these inspiring women was truly an honor.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore Museum of Art in November is opening what they call a “major reappraisal” of its contemporary collection. The new installation named “How Do We Know The World?” is grounded in social history rather than chronology, the museum said. The museum said the new contemporary wing “offers visitors a more meaningful way to experience and connect with the art on view by emphasizing how artists observe, understand, and respond to our shared everyday circumstances.” READ MORE: Annapolis Couple Accused Of Trying To Sell Military Secrets To Foreign GovernmentThe reappraisal was done mostly over the pandemic, so the presentation is organized around themes of “care, progress, wayfinding, self-possession, witnessing, reckoning and legacy,” the museum said. The first rotation of art will be on view for six months with media from 52 artists. Over half the works have never been on view at the BMA.

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken is inviting United Nations officials to investigate systemic racism in the United States amid a dispute with China about whether international monitors can probe the atrocities against Uyghur Muslims. His move has drawn the ire of some GOP lawmakers. “The United States intends to issue a formal, standing invitation to all UN experts who report and advise on thematic human rights issues,” Blinken announced late Tuesday. “As a first step, we have reached out to offer an official visit by the UN Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism and the UN Special Rapporteur on minority issues.” Blinken issued that invitation as the diplomats and U.N. officials in Geneva agreed to establish “an international independent expert mechanism” to investigate police discrimination against people of African descent globally. The international discussion of George Floyd’s death this week coincided with a State Department report detailing China’s atrocities against the Uyghurs, which the U.S. has identified as a genocide. “Great nations such as ours do not hide from our shortcomings; they acknowledge them openly and strive to improve...
    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago artists played a vital role in the evolution of comics and cartooning, shaping the form into what it is today. A new exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art is highlighting that history."This is a survey of contemporary comics artist from 1960 to now," said cartoonist Chris Ware, "covering cartoonists who I think can best be described as the most thoughtful and self-expressive and experimental."The idea for Chicago Comics was first proposed by MCA's former chief curator Michael Darling, and the exhibit was designed by guest curator Dan Nadel."Chicago has been hospitable and nurturing to cartoonists since around the turn of the 20th century," Nadel said. "In the last 20 years or so, Chicago has become a hub for people who want to go to (college) and learn comics."Chris Ware has spent most of his own professional career in Chicago, where he's gained international acclaim for his work in alt-weekly magazines like Chicago Reader and nationally syndicated publications like The New Yorker."The thing I like about comics," Ware said, "is that it's a medium that is...

    Building in the mountains has always been one of the more difficult feats for humankind. Despite, or perhaps because of, that it's long been a place for architectural inventiveness. Today, some of the coolest buildings around the world that incite our wanderlust are found in mountains. That's why this week's selection for Just Booked (our series on exciting new travel-related coffee table books) is Phaidon's Living in the Mountains: Contemporary Houses in the Mountains. It is a close look at 17 projects around the world that best capture the unique views of mountains, views that allow one, in the words of the editor, "to look out and be humbled by the great forces that once thrust the rock into the sky, and gain a wider perspective on our place in the world." Some of the houses are sleek wonders of concrete with sexy pools and swanky interiors lit by giant floor-to-ceiling- windows (like the Camino a Farellones in Chile). Others, like the Lone Mountain Ranch House in New Mexico, take a simple single-story charred wood house and within transform a...
    Corporate America has not completely lost all its marbles, but the bag sprang a leak about 10 years ago. Added to the many things that have made Atlanta spiral downhill is the wussification of the venerable Coca-Cola Company. Coke was invented by a Confederate officer, John Pemberton, a biochemist. After years of being well run by gutsy leaders, like most large corporations in America Coke has cowed to the PC Democrat overlords and has ordered its employees to act less white. Atlanta, which now competes with Chicago for the crime capital of the United States, has been run by loony libs for years now. Pressure on companies which have not fled for the sensible suburbs to capitulate to the overlords is too much for the weak-willed Generation Wussie to stand up to. Most large corporation managers are usually sharp-elbowed weasels willing to salute whatever flag goes up the pole. But gone are the days of rough and tumble leaders like Bernie Marcus of Home Depot and Jack Welch of GE. Now we have a generation of leaders who emasculate Mr....
    Art history, like any historical canon, is largely whitewashed in favor of colonizers and imperialists. From the African tribal masks that were looted and are still on display in European museums to the sculptures representing Black suppression that still contentiously stand in the United States, the history of Black art is one of marginalization, violence, and resilience. Fortunately, Black artists are gaining the recognition and notoriety they deserve, though are still fighting against the same cultural climate that systemically works against them. Below are 10 contemporary Black artists whose work continues to shape and inspire the art world. 1. Kehinde Wiley Source: Brooklyn Museum / Youtube Starting off this list we have Kehinde Wiley, a painter, sculptor, and stained glass artist who is well known for elevating the images of ordinary Black figures. One of his most well-known series takes contemporary Black individuals and inserts them into renowned works from the European canon of art. In contrast to the monarchs or iconic mythological characters, the subjects featured in Wiley’s paintings are often portraits of people he meets on the...

    We saw her reprise her role as Beena Tripathi in Mirzapur 2. Garnering accolades for the nuanced portrayal, Rasika Dugal had us hooked with the promotional stint for the web-series. Rasika Dugal is our #WomanCrush for quite a few reasons. An on-screen brilliance that translates seamlessly into an off-screen affability, Rasika Dugal adds on another facet to an already burgeoning persona – a striking sense of style! Not only does she have a keen perception of fashion but she is someone who consciously has been choosing homegrown labels even before it became a talking point. A Mathematician from Delhi, Rasika has flipped across platforms to build a rich repertoire of plays, short films, web-series and feature films. As such, it would be safe to say that she nails the basics well, be it for a role or style. Showing this, for the umpteenth time, Rasika paired her high neck white tunic with a blue bandhej shrug. Silver oxidized jewellery, kohl-rimmed eyes and a slick hairdo completed her look. A contemporary style played using basics, Rasika wooed us immensely with this...
    These books are not about a pandemic Walt Hickey There is one trick to successful mental health in this awful, exhausting time: escapist, engrossing fantasy literature. The Hickey System will have this winter sail by, because instead of ruminating on a moribund present you'll be reading Wheel of Time or something. Do not try to read contemporary fiction or fiction with a realistic setting. Do not read Game of Thrones, the uncertain possibility of an ending is already a pretty defining vibe of COVID-19 times.  I covered the election and the only reason I haven't had a breakdown is I'm reading the Wheel of Time series. Television shows are great, but they're over in 10 hours, and there are 3,000 hours between now and the end of March. This is an opinion column. The thoughts expressed are those of the author.

    Amol Palekar, our birthday boy’s movies weren’t spared from being remade. Most of his movies got contemporary spins which although current, go overboard with the treatment most of the time. It’s anybody’s guess that his quirky movies are the obvious bets here. They say remakes are imitations and that is the strongest form of flattery. When it comes to Bollywood, it’s highly unlikely that the OG filmmakers or cast ever felt flattered to see the remakes. Bollywood has a knack for going OTT in everything. Amol Palekar Birthday Special: 10 Movies Of Amol Palekar That Are Delights For Every Movie Buff What’s extremely interesting here is that Palekar’s movies are evergreen. They never seem stale or dated. With a bit of tweak, you can fit them in any situation and in every age. Let us tell you how. Chitchor- Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon Let’s get done with the worst first. MPKDH is perhaps the worst remake ever made in the history of Indian cinema. What’s funnier is the movie is made by the same producer who made...
    During the COVID-19 pandemic, finding gigs is even harder than usual for artists, with budgets getting thinner at galleries, museums and companies willing to spice up their advertising with actual art. Which makes Denver artist Tony Ortega's hot streak amid the chaos even more impressive. Known for colorful works that embrace his cultural heritage, Ortega recently was feted at the opening of the twentieth-anniversary Día de los Muertos exhibit at the Longmont Museum, on display through January 9, which honors the Mexican holiday and several of his family members. Ortega has also managed to find a supportive industry that isn't facing financial crisis during the pandemic, partnering with cannabis edibles company Ripple to display his Día de los Muertos art on several of the company's packages through the fall. A small portion of profits off the products featuring Ortega's art will be donated to an organization of his choice: RedLine Contemporary Art Center. (According to Ripple, this marks the start of an annual initiative between the company and the local arts community.) "We had been following Tony’s art, specifically as a...
    In early June, J.C. Futrell, the education director at RedLine Contemporary Art Center, challenged resident artist Lares Feliciano to create a work reflecting on the police murder of George Floyd, and she dashed off an urgent video. But as Feliciano witnessed police brutality at protests and watched her partner come back from the demonstrations night after night, clothes soaked in teargas and body covered in bruises from rubber bullets, Futrell's challenge continued to nag at her. And soon the artist started an animation project focusing on the murders of Black people by police and the collective trauma those killings have caused in our country. "I wanted to find a way to both express my rage against police violence and white supremacy and also express my grief over the lives that are continually lost over and over again: people being shot by police, specifically black people being shot by police," Feliciano says. "The process of making this was in itself a grief process. I was just feeling so hopeless, honestly. There’s no time to grieve. There’s just no time to...

    Filmmaker Ashish R Shukla says his attempt with the latest political satire “Bahut Hua Sammaan” was to give a modern-day spin to the 1983 cult classic “Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro”. Directed by Kundan Shah, “Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro” mixed comedy with themes of corruption and unemployment. It film featured actors Naseeruddin Shah, Ravi Baswani, Om Puri, Pankaj Kapur, Satish Kaushik, Satish Shah, Neena Gupta, Bhakti Bharve and Deepak Qazir. “Bahut Hua Sammaan” chronicles the story of two small-time con-men engineering students (Raghav Juyal, Abhishek Chauhan) who decide to rob a bank as per a master plan by been-there, know-it-all soul in their college ‘Baba’, played by Sanjay Mishra. Hrithik Roshan to Get this Whopping Amount for His OTT Debut on Disney+ Hotstar? Shukla, who recently helmed the SonyLiv web-series “Undekhi”, said the film is politically charged but doesn’t lean towards any ideology. “We wanted to make a contemporary take on ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ with a lot of ’80s music which I love. Thankfully I had access to the whole SaReGaMa library from where I’ve used 33 forgotten songs mostly...

    Shiite Muslims attend a mourning ritual during the Islamic month of Muharram, in the central shrine city of Karbala. Photo by Mohammed SAWAF / AFP) (Photo by MOHAMMED SAWAF/AFP via Getty Images Every year, Shiite Muslims mark the death of Prophet Muhammad’s grandson Hussain with a mourning period that lasts a total of 50 days. Ashura, the tenth day of the Islamic month of Muharram, commemorates the day Hussain died. For millions of Shiites, this mourning period culminates in a pilgrimage to Karbala in Iraq. This pilgrimage has, in recent years, become the largest gathering of people in the world for a religious reason. This year Ashura was observed on Aug. 30 and the pilgrimage, 40 days later, will end on Oct. 9, 2020. My research focuses on Shiite shrines and Muharram mourning practices. The city of Karbala, which I visited twice in 2013, is located 60 miles southwest of Baghdad and 45 miles north of Najaf, the other important Shiite shrine city in Iraq. The pilgrimage and the city of Karbala have been through many changes over a...
