Exploration of World Cultural Arts

Curated by Bert Breton
The World Cultural Arts learning group examines the transformation and collaboration of different art forms. Cultural Arts embodies creative thinking and critique, which encompasses the analyses of contemporary visual culture alongside other art forms i.e. visual art, literature, music, theatre, film, dance, etc. Cultural arts help to explain the world in which we live, our worldview and often challenge current ideas, thoughts and practice. World Cultural arts are less about definition and more about meaning and making sense of our current environment through an exploration of creativity.

Nneka Egbuna, Nigerian-German singer/songwriter, has a great voice and confrontational style. In 2010, she was awarded Best Indigenous Artist in Nigeria at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards. Rolling Stone describes her as “…pure hotness.” Check her out.

Doug E. Fresh, the very first beatbox pioneer in the history of rap/hip-hop, teaches about the history of beatbox, his personal style of delivery and generally amazes with his world class, inimitable flow.

New York Fashion Week Fall 2012: Marc Jacobs ~

Jacobs is still my fav! He paid homage to eccentricity, with an energetic and sophisticated collection full of luxe fabrics, sculptural shapes, and some of the biggest, craziest fur hats imaginable, courtesy of brilliant British milliner Stephen Jones!!! Watch…

Halfway through NY Fashion Week, fiercer fitted looks, military shapes, leather, python prints — NEW YORK — It’s time for the well-heeled women who shop from New York Fashion Week runways to pull themselves up by their bootstraps — preferably Christian Louboutins — and carry off clothes rooted in strength, confidence and even toughness. Even glamorous Victoria Beckham, rarely seen without stilettos on, sent some of her models down the runway Sunday in motorcycle boots. (They were indeed Louboutins). +1 Alexander Wang…

Die Antwoord…the hottest rave/rap band in the world…straight from Africa…Cape Town to be exact. Here they are performing ‘I Fink U Freaky’ on Letterman. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, their videos are the most over the top, offensively brilliant productions ever. Look some of them up on youtube!

Africa has its own Mark Zuckerbergs, Andrew Masons, Mark Pincuses, Larry Pages and Sergey Brins. But it lacks its own Yuri Milners, John Doerrs, Vinod Khoslas and Y Combinators.

Young African Invents Touch Screen Medical Tablet:
Here’s an example of African innovation at its finest.

Arthur Zang, a 24 year-old Cameroonian engineer, has invented the Cardiopad, a touch screen medical tablet that enables heart examinations such as the electrocardiogram (ECG) to be performed at remote, rural locations while the results of the test are transferred wirelessly to specialists who can interpret them. The device spares African patients living in remote areas the trouble of having to travel to urban centers to seek medical examinations.

Los Angeles Dance Festival to debut in a busy April:

With the goal of highlighting local dance, Diavolo Dance Theater and Brockus Project are co-producing a new Los Angeles Dance Festival, April 14 and 15, at the Brewery Arts Complex. So far, 16 contemporary dance companies have signed up to participate, including Barak Marshall’s dance company, Oni Dance, Kybele Dance Theater and Lula Washington Dance Theatre.

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/culturemonster/2012/02/los-angeles-dance-festival-debut-april.html

The festival is geared not only for audiences but also for local dancers — especially college students — looking to become better acquainted with the area’s professional companies.

Happy to see the dance scene in LA expand! Here’s a piece by LA’s Diavolo Dance Theater. I like them a lot.

Drumming and dancing to the rhythm of the rainforest coming to The Hawth — London based KASAI MASAI are an African band that give an urban twist to music that can be heard in Congo’s most isolated villages. They’ll be playing at Hawth (south of London) on March 17, 8PM!
