Small Galleries Do Big Things

In the 20th century, both in the United States and in Europe, art has faced a new topic: the modernization of extra large art. The result of art modernization is the generation of modern art.

     The revolution began in Europe. At the beginning of this century, when American artists were still advocating the use of realistic means to paint Americans, and when the eight-man school shook American abstract art with a sketchy documentary, modern art was beginning to dawn in Europe. Before the "Eight People's Painting Exhibition" in 1998, there was already a modern style in European painting: bestiality and Cubism. Picasso's famous Cubist debut, "the young woman of Avignon"(Fig. 32), was completed in 1900. Of course, the foundations of American art and European art are very different, The emergence of European modernist art is because the Impressionism and post-impressionism of the last century have paved the way for it: Impressionism began to crowd out the "accurate modeling" that has always been valued in black and white art traditions by emphasizing the light color of the picture. This excavates the traditional "corner". With this opening gap, the innovation of Western art will be overwhelming, and it will flow down in the direction of "contempt for modeling" very quickly. In this direction, European art began to explore and create with various new techniques of deformation, decomposition, and even abandonment. Thus, in the first decade of this century, Europe emerged as a bestial, Cubist, and, later, futuristic and abstract. In less than 15 years, a new art form, contemporary art, has appeared in Europe.

Interview with art group D+M-Blue wall art

Blue wall art-Croatian-born artist Dora Budor has made D+M Cule - an art group - with Maja Cule.
They Shared a studio in New York, where they collaborated on a variety of hybrid and new media art projects, Contemporary Wall Art as well as behavioral performances that

combined advertising, imagery modeling, product design, and clever manipulation of various bodies and cultures.
These two artists have design backgrounds, and their works are influenced by the methodology and psychology of product and advertisement creation. Their artistic practices make use of common and common elements and behavior patterns in the contemporary environment, and mix them into the experience of providing personalized reality for the audience.
In their recent performance "Knockoff" (2012), D+M worked with local martial artists from different cities to recreate an action movie on the spot in the form of what is known in the film world as a "spoof film."
Here's Courtney Malick of DIS Magazine talking about D+M.

Courtney Malick: how did your latest project, Knockoff, begin?

Maja Cule: we started the project while staying in the Tanzfabrik Uferstudios Berlin. Large Abstract Art Cheap Tanzfabrik Uferstudios was originally a large factory building which was transformed into a series of performance Spaces dedicated to contemporary dance projects.HANDMADE BLACK WHITE GEOMETRIC ART
But we never wanted to do a work that was based on dance.
We looked forward to something closer to real life, experimented with various forms of interaction with the audience, and studied the production of shots for blockbuster films.

There are clusters of turks, and when they learn that rents are cheap, many young artists flock there.
I still remember that a few months after I moved to Berlin in 2010, a group of drunken Turkish youths tried to attack me on the street on the first night.
My friends and fellow artists Max Pitegoff, Calla Henkel and Lindsay Lawson drove them away.
It's a magical place where you can meet anyone;
It was here that I met artist/professional stunt double Helga Wretman and DJ/musician M.E.S.H., who worked alongside us on the creation of "Knockoff".
