ART HAPPENING- NRW-FORUM DUSSELDORF PRESENT HORST V. HORST

The NRW-Forum, Düsseldorf, is presenting a comprehensive retrospective of Horst P. Horst. The exhibition Horst: Photographer of Style opens on February 12, 2016, and runs until May 22. German-born Horst was one of the leading photographers of the twentieth century and remains an important influence today. The exhibition is curated by the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), London, and presents 250 photographic works spanning 60 years. It includes iconic images from his time as a Vogue photographer and lesser-known projects alongside rarely seen drawings, letters, films and couture gowns.

KING OF FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY 
Horst creatively traversed the worlds of photography, art, fashion, design, theatre and high society. The exhibition explores his collaborations and friendships with leading couturiers such as Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli in 1930s Paris; film stars including Marlene Dietrich and Rita Hayworth; and artists and designers such as Salvador Dalí and Jean-Michel Frank. Horst found inspiration from many sources, including Classical architecture, the Bauhaus ideals of modern design, and Surrealist art. His elegant black and white studies from the 1930s show his mastery of light and shade. The creative process behind some of his most famous photographs, such as the Mainbocher Corset, is revealed through the inclusion of original contact sheets, sketches and cameras.

SHORT WEB SERIES- "WHAT EATING STEVEN YEUN?"

I like this short web series with Steven Yeun as a Mokbang (Food Porn) Superstar. He really has a great comedic timing.  It's only 3 episodes and it's really worth your time. Also, Sandara Park from 2NE1 is here too.




EPISODE 1 OF 3

Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) leaves behind his life and love (Sandara Park, Kpop star from 2ne1) in LA to make his mark in his parent's home country of South Korea. Once there, he connects with a manager who steers him away from acting and insists he make his mark by diving into Korea's most viral craze, 'Mokbang' aka 'Broadcast Eating'.
