SPECIAL: WILLIAM KENTRIDGE
July is a very special month for us at ikonoTV, and I am proud to announce both William Kentridge as Artist of the Month and our new On Demand
I therefore thought that it was time for an editorial, since every month we will be coming up with new content just like in a magazine:
our platform becoming a video magazine.
William is a South African artist mainly known for his animated drawings, his films and his Charlie Chaplin like performances, where he comments and explains his work at the same time: Very enjoyable and always very profound.
Thanks to broadcasting technology, ikonoTV transforms people's screens and TV sets into living paintings. For this reason, our "Artist of the Month" concept intends to show a big part of the artistic cosmos of that particular artist, something you could normally see only if you hop from museum to museum all over the world. This month, for Kentridge lovers, if your holiday plans allow it, don't miss "NO IT IS!" (Listen to the Podcast by artipoeus here) Exhibitions / Performances / Lectures, in Berlin, at the Martin-Gropius-Bau and Berliner Festspiele, until August 21st and the very unique "Triumphs and Laments" 500m frieze, that you can discover in Rome on the walls of the travertine embankment: a procession of figures up to 10 meters in height which will be visible until the pollution gradually covers them.
William Kentridge can be enjoyed in various ways this month: extended presence of his works on our 24/7 stream, a 24h special starting on the 11th of July at 6pm CET and, if you need more or missed the 24h event, have a look at our extensive Kentridge Playlist in our On Demand section.
So please join us for an exceptional art experience during the month of July, discovering Kentridge's lovely video works, but also on our 24/7 stream a Carte Blanche curated by Marco Mancuso, critic and curator in the field of digital art, founder and Director at Digicult and Digimag Journal, who put together a playlist with great digital artists: Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand, Syntfarm, Boris Labbé, Quayola, Thomas Köner, and Thorsten Fleisch. Our Museums of the World this month are located in Rome, with the Musei Capitolini, the Mercati di Traiano and the MACRO, while Rediscovered Heritage takes a closer look at the Timurid and Safavid miniatures.
With my best wishes for a happy and healthy art-month.
