The gallery’s original collection of modern art was presented by Sir Hugh Lane in 1908 and has, over the last century been enhanced by notable bequests, gifts and acquisitions including Francis Bacon’s Studio and Archive and Sean Scully’s gift of paintings.

Charlemont House was designed by William Chambers in 1763 for  James Caulfeild The first Earl of Charlemont and was refurbished as a public art gallery in 1933.

Proceed from the studio through gallery  9 to the  new wing, a two story extension which opened in 2006.

One of the permanent exhibitions on the ground floor of the new wing is the Sean Scully room which contains paintings presented by the artist in 2006. You may access the 1st floor by stairs or lift.

After enjoying the gallery’s collections as well as the beautiful architecture of the building, descend the grand staircase from the 1st floor which will return you to the reception area.

NCJA Global Motion Picture of the Month: #Bengali #Film ‘2 girls’ by Marc Speroni #NoCriticsJustArtists

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The documentary is based on the research:
“Time to look at girls: adolescent girls’ migration and development”.
by Nicoletta Del Franco, Marina de Regt, Katarzyna Grabska,.
Supported by: Swiss Network of International Studies (SNIS).

Lota comes from the poor rural area of Bangladesh and dreams to improve her status and gain economic independency. She moves to megacity of Dhaka, finds shelter in a slum and starts to work in a garment factory. She works 12 hours a day, earning 50 cents of a dollar per hour.

Tigist, Ethiopian girl, was ment to have more priviledged life. She was born in a family of two teachers, but after both her parents died in a car crash, she became a victim of abuse by her relatives. Escaping from a situation of enslavement, Tigist ends up on the streets of Addis Ababa. Without a place to sleep or anyone to call for, she is quickly surrounded by predators and has to fight for her surivival.

2 Girls is a character-driven and observational documentary about two young women, who are linked to each other through a universal journey of poverty and abuse for the sake of dreaming a better life. It’s a heartbreakingly harsh journey, where Lota and Tigist meet their hopes and destinies. Yet, despite their tough lives, they reveal an inner strength and great dignity. They come from poverty, they fall into even worse conditions, but they never stop striving to improve their state. Overwhelmed by global injustice and gender-oriented abuse, Lota and Tigist manage to keep their souls uncorrupted by the wrongdoings they face.

The story of 2 Girls is a story lived every day by millions of girls all around the world but rarely has it been told with the same power of testimony than in this documentary,

NCJA Global Book of the Month #RiseAndGrind: Outperform, Outwork, and Outhustle Your Way to a More Successful and Rewarding Life by #American #Entrepreneur @TheSharkDaymond & @DanielPaisner #NoCriticsJustArtists #Book

New York Times bestselling author of The Power of Broke and “Shark” on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank explores how grit, persistence, and good old fashioned hard work are the backbone of every successful business and individual, and inspires readers to Rise & Grind their way the top. It might be convenient to believe that you can short-cut your way to the top, but the truth is that if you want to get and stay ahead, you need to put in the work. You need to out-think, out-hustle, out-perform everyone around you. You’ve got to ‘rise and grind’ every day. In the anticipated follow-up to the bestselling The Power of Broke, Daymond takes an up-close look at the hard-charging routines and winning secrets of individuals who have risen to the challenges in their lives and grinded their way to the very tops of their fields. Along the way, he also reveals how grit and persistence both helped him overcome the obstacles he has faced in life, and ultimately fueled his success.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PueYywpkJW8

Motion visuals via TATE.org

In the 1970’s and 1980’s Ai Weiwei was a protagonist in a dynamic avant-garde movement in China where a lot of activity saw its light on the Chinese art scene. Ai Weiwei’s career has steadily been gaining momentum in the past decades, not least due to his controversial exhibition “Fuck Off” in connection to the Shanghai Bienniale in 2000, his participation at Documenta 2007, his design of “Bird’s Nest”, the Olympic Stadium in Beijing, built in collaboration with Herzog & de Meuron, and his Sunflower Seeds for Unilever Series 2010 at Tate Modern. In 2010 Art Review listed Ai Weiwei as no. 1 on their Top 100 of most powerful people in the art world. There is no doubt that his 81 days of detention by the Chinese authorities in the spring of 2011 has put him in an even more important position – both inside and outside the art world – and inside and outside of China. Ai Weiwei is today one of the leading Chinese artists.

“Nina Borg, a Red Cross nurse, wife, and mother of two, is a compulsive do-gooder who can’t say no when someone asks for help?even when she knows better. When her estranged friend Karin leaves her a key to a public locker in the Copenhagen train station, Nina gets suckered into her most dangerous project yet. Inside the locker is a suitcase, and inside the suitcase is a three-year-old boy: naked and drugged, but alive.

Is the boy a victim of child trafficking? Can he be turned over to authorities, or will they only return him to whoever sold him? When Karin is discovered brutally murdered, Nina realizes that her life and the boy’s are in jeopardy, too. In an increasingly desperate trek across Denmark, Nina tries to figure out who the boy is, where he belongs, and who exactly is trying to hunt him down.

Oldie But Goodie: They Don’t Care About Us by the #American King of Pop, #MichaelJackson #NoCriticsJustArtists

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, aggravation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Bang bang, shot dead
Everybody’s gone mad

All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Sue me, Sue me
Everybody do me
Kick me, kick me
Don’t you black or white me

All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of hate
You’re rapin’ me of my pride oh, for God’s sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy
Set me free

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Trepidation, speculation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Black man, black mail
Throw your brother in jail

All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame
They’re throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can’t believe this is the land from which I came
You know I do really hate to say it
The government don’t want to see
But if Roosevelt was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, speculation
Everybody litigation
Beat me, bash me
You can never trash me
Hit me, kick me
You can never get me

All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us

Some things in life they just don’t want to see
But if Martin Luther was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, segregation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Kick me, kick me
Don’t you wrong or right me

All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us

Semi Oldie But Goodie: ‘Soldier Of Love’ by Sade #NoCriticsJustArtists

I’ve lost the use of my heart
But I’m still alive
Still looking for the life
The endless pool on the other side
It’s a wild wild west
I’m doing my best
I’m at the borderline of my faith,
I’m at the hinterland of my devotion
In the front line of this battle of mine
But I’m still alive
I’m a soldier of love.
Every day and night
I’m a soldier of love
All the days of my life
I’ve been torn up inside (oh!)
I’ve been left behind (oh!)
So I ride
I have the will to survive
In the wild wild west,
Trying my hardest
Doing my best
To stay alive
I am love’s soldier!
I wait for the sound
(oh oh)
I know that love will come (that love will come)
Turn it all around
I’m a soldier of love (soldier of love)
Every day and night
I’m a soldier of love
All the days of my life
I have lost but I don’t doubt
So I ride, I have the will to survive
In the wild wild west,
Trying my hardest
Doing my best
To stay alive
I am love’s soldier!
I wait for the sound
I know that love will come
I know that love will come
Turn it all around
I’m a soldier of love
I’m a soldier

Visit @APrivateIsland #CayoEspanto off the coast of San Pedro #Belize #WannaGetAway #NoCriticsJustArtists

 

The country of Belize lies on the eastern coastline of Central America, below Mexico and next to Guatemala. It is a small, stable country covered with exotic rain forests and some of the longest white sand beaches in the world.
Just off Belize’s 280 kilometer Caribbean coastline is the second largest barrier reef in the world, along with a network of over 200 coral cays and atolls. Tropical Fish of every imaginable populate the placid aquamarine waters off the coast. Gentle Nurse Sharks average 4-6 feet in length and dive masters often feed them small fish. Rays, which have a “wing span” of 2-4 feet, swim directly towards the divers. Tourists will have great delight in the Manatee, Grouper, Snapper and all of the other marine life. Most of the creatures in this area have great tolerance for divers and seem to enjoy human interaction.
Visit the excavated remains of the ancient cities of Altun Ha and Lamanai, which attest to the wealth and sophistication of the Mayans’ glorious past. Near the Guatemalan border, the Cayo region encompasses nature sanctuaries, the majestic Hidden Valley Falls, the lively town of San Ignacio and many splendid Mayan ruins. Some Travelers have claimed to have experienced nirvana from the summit of the main pyramid of Xunantunich, which offers a sweeping vista of the Mopan Valley and Guatemala.
Like most of the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize was part of the Mayan Kingdom from 300 B.C. to 900 A.D. Close by in Belize’s Inland, ruins of the vast Mayan civilization protrude from the depths of the rain forests. Spanish Conquistadors arrived in the 16th Century but were lured away by the immense quantities of gold found in Mexico, making room for the British to move in. Though Belize gained its independence in 1981, English is still the official language and elements of the British culture are still intermingled with those of the Caribbean.
Getting to Belize is easier and faster than traveling to most any other major Caribbean destination. On the mainland, there is plenty to experience and explore in this eco tourism-friendly country – Mayan ruins, the Jaguar Preserve, countless birding expeditions, and world-class scuba diving and snorkeling. But with little effort – a 20-minute plane ride to Ambergris Caye and a 3-mile boat ride – you can bask in beauty and end-of-the-world-style luxury at Cayo Espanto resort.

NCJA Global Motion Picture of the Month: @Janapar_Film w/ @Tom_R_Allen directed by @JamesWNewton #NoCriticsJustArists

A TRUE STORY DIRECTED BY JAMES NEWTON                            FILMED BY TOM ALLEN

23-year-old Englishman Tom Allen is all set for a successful career, but he finds himself persisted by the question of our time: isn’t there more to life than this? Leaving it all behind, Tom sets off on the ultimate quest for freedom. For the next 12,000 miles, with neither maps nor guidebooks, Tom films the unfolding of his dream. But the journey takes an unlikely detour when he falls in love with an Iranian-Armenian girl. Filmed over four years with cinematic ambition, Janapar — named after the Armenian word for journey — is an honest and life-affirming tale of finding what you’re looking for when you least expect it.

Game Changer of the Month: #Empresario & #VisualArtist PABLO GONZÁLEZ VARGAS de #Mexico #NoCriticsJustArists

About Pablo: The founder of one of the leading e-payment platforms in Latin America, Sr. Pago, Vargas was also a founder of EXA Radio & TV, among the most important media outlets for the Latin American youth market. It was during this time that he provided the vision which led to multiple concerts, performances, and music festivals. Working as a production director for the Dish/MVS TV network, Vargas remains a passionate supporter of the Visual and Performing Arts. Among his artistic pursuits, Vargas was the creator of the Mayan Warrior, a multi-media arts vehicle which first visited Burning Man in 2012, and which has returned each of the six years since then. Currently immersed in the Fintech industry, Ilumina is his first work of public sculpture.

Proyectos Actuales/Current Projects

At Burning Man this year, an interactive art installation by the name of Ilumina took on the playa for the first time and provided an unforgettable experience to anyone who participated. Conceived by Mayan Warrior and Sr. Pago founder Pablo Gonzalez Vargas, the 37-foot tall creation illuminated the Nevada desert and attracted visitors who were drawn to its majestic glow.

The true experience of Ilumina though extended well beyond just a visual experience to gaze upon. With Ilumina, guests are invited to take part in an immersive three-minute long meditation and flow exercise that ushers them into a state of coherence and deep harmony with themselves, fellow participants, and the universe through a proprietary merger of modern technology and ancient design wisdom.

To start, biometric sensors are connected to the earlobes of each participant, which measures their unique state of coherence and averages them together. Ilumina’s dazzling lighting design and moving soundscapes respond to this unique algorithm. As the group becomes more coherent, the sculpture glows brighter and the music swells, creating a shared experience for participants.

The design for Ilumina was inspired by an amalgamation of four key concepts. The first is Torus, which can be seen in the flow of electrons within an atom as well as the shape and flow of the greater universe itself. Next is the fibonacci sequence, which is a simple and elegant ratio that binds nearly all design in the living world, from the human body to leaves on a tree.

The third source of inspiration is a cutting-edge tool provided by the HeartMath Institute, which uses biometrics sensors to train oneself on the self regulation of emotional states to achieve coherence. Lastly, there is Metatron’s Cube, which contains all of the geometric shapes in existence and thus embodies the divinity of all potentials. These four concepts come together to create Ilumina.

“Ilumina was inspired by an experience I had using HeartMath Institute’s feedback software where I found myself in a state of flow,” says Ilumina founder Pablo Gonzalez Vargas. “I was inspired to create a piece for Burning Man that took this concept to a larger scale designed around collective coherence while bringing together the elements of flow, mathematics, and the fundamentals of sacred design.”

Artists that worked alongside Pablo to complete Ilumina included HeartMath Expert & Executive Producer Gaby Vargas, lighting design expert Paolo Montiel, who has worked closely on all of James Turrell’s projects in Mexico, highly experienced musician and performer Mendrix, Mexico-City based art studio Cocolab, renowned painter and sculptor Marco Kalach and many more.

This is the second piece the Pablo has brought to Burning Man, with the first being the multi-media arts vehicle Mayan Warrior. Since its debut in 2012, Mayan Warrior has brought musical performances, elaborate lighting designs, and painting by visionary artist Alex Grey. Mayan Warrior continues to be one of the most popular and dazzling experiences on the playa.

Since Burning Man, Ilumina has experienced a spread well beyond those who experienced its inaugural journey with over 500,000 views and counting on videos uploaded to social media. More news to be announced in the near future regarding next steps for Ilumina.
