I am taking a hiatus from blogging. The posts I now add will be unedited and unpolished, please forgive me. I am using this platform as a storage place for interesting things. I am currently focusing on editing wikipedia articles on contemporary art instead. I encourage you to do the same and to follow still very active blogs like hyperallergic, c-monster, bldgblog, and more. thanks you.
Famed German director Werner Herzog is filming a movie about the first type of art known to man: cave drawings. But wait, there's more... It's in 3D, too! Of this decision, Herzog said: "The sense of awe comes through in 3D, strangely enough. It’s hard to make a 3D in six days, four hours per day, on location in the cave on this two-foot-wide-walkway. In semi-darkness we had to build our camera. It was really done on the run."

Even though Anish Kapoor was born in India, he's never done a show there -- until now. He has two exhibitions in India: one at the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi (who had to expand an entrance to get Kapoor's huge sculptures inside) and the other at the Mehboob Film Studio in Mumbai.

Gregory Witt, the 2010 Emerging Artist of the Year (according to the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts) created an enormous installation out of blue foam and electric motors. Who knew blue foam could be so incredible? Watch the video here.
