  Modern Art Movements   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Art Deco was a movement in decorative arts that also affected architecture, deriving its name from the World's fair held in Paris in 1925, formally titled the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, which showcased French luxury goods and reassured the world that Paris remained the international center of style.
Art Deco did not originate with the Exposition; it was a major style in Europe from the early 1920s, though it did not catch on in the U.S. until about 1928, when it quickly modulated into the Moderne during the 1930s, the decade with which the concept of Art Deco is most strongly associated today.
Art Deco was an opulent style and this opulence is attributed as a reaction to the forced austerity during the years of World War I. Art Deco was a popular style for interiors of cinema theatres and ocean liners such as the Ile de France and Normandie.

 Delhi Art Gallery :Delhi Art Gallery : SHAMSHAD HUSAIN  (b. 1946) Contemporary Art Gallery India, Original ...
What Shamshad has imbibed from the art milieu at home is the pictorial significance of the human figure both as an artistic expression and a statement of faith in man’s social existence.
This was latter reinforced by the prevailing art ideas and ideals in the academic circles in Baroda during his sophomore years.
At Royal College of Art, his exposure to what was emergent in western art could have broadened the range of his imagery, but his concern in man as a social being has left a permanent impress on his art.

 Art   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
In this show an art critic/curator selected a group of generally renown and historically recognized artists and required them to produce an artwork in a medium that the critic selected and that, almost to a single one: none of the artists had ever produced an actual work of art in before.
Many artists consider how image reproduction and circulation function constitutively in their art; some are keen to the fact that art today is produced not in the studio, but in the dynamic social relationalities among artist, viewer, dealer, institution, publication, and so on; some artists even make this the material of their art.
I think her effort at respecting all the main religions of the region, at operating with regard to all the converging cultures, should rather be a model for anyone voicing an opinion on the war than what Holzer did within one context generally recognized as being biased, or at least party to the conflict.

 the everyday art gallery
The Walker Art Center became the first U.S. museum to devote permanent gallery space to modern design when it opened The Everyday Art Gallery in January 1946.

The Everyday Art Gallery had two objectives: to use design as a bridge for the public between the practical and more accessible products of modern design and the abstract, often unfamiliar, world of modern art; and to stimulate consumer demand for well-designed products.
