Kelvin Harrison Jr elvis social interview

With writer-director Baz Luhrmannit is Elvis opening in theaters this weekend around the world, I recently got to speak with Kelvin Harrison Jr.. about playing BB King in the biopic. During the interview, Butler spoke about what he was surprised to learn about BB King and Elvis as he prepared for the role, his reaction seeing Austin Butler like Elvis on set for the first time, why he was blown away by his performance, his reaction to seeing the finished film for the first time, and how Luhrmann edited the film, and more.

As you can see in the trailers, Elvis talks about the complicated relationship between Colonel Tom Parker (tom hank) and Elvis Presley. The film tells the story of Elvis from Parker’s perspective, and it spans two decades and includes Presley’s rise to prominence within the context of the changing cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America.

COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY

Butler is superb in the role and actually sings Presley’s early songs in the film. Her performance alone is a reason to see the film. Elvis also stars Helene Thomson like Elvis’ mother, Gladys, Richard Roxburgh like Elvis’ father, Vernon, Olivia De Jonge like Priscilla Presley, Luc Bracey like Jerry Schilling, Natasha Bassette like Dixie Locke, David Wenham like Hank Snow, xavier samuel like Scotty Moore, and Kodi Smit McPhee as Jimmie Rodgers Snow. To play other iconic musical artists in the film, Luhrmann cast the singer/songwriter yola as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, model Alton Mason like Little Richard, Gary Clark Jr. as Arthur Crudup, and artist Shonka Dukureh as Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton.

Collaborate with a queer art collective Fabou TVEliza shines a light on the vibrant community that exists in East London, a community that defies modernization and gentrification.

“BOTA” is a peppy yet suave 4×4 track with witty lyricism paired with a seductive vocals and lyrics that linger with you. It was released yesterday (June 15) the same day as the music video.

The video blends sexuality, gender, fun, fantasy, quirkiness and comedy, as well as an unconscious and daring homage to a famous Lewis Caroll novel.

Filmed on the streets of Hackney, the video takes viewers to high-profile locations including Dalston Superstore and The Karaoke Hole.

Eliza Rose is the main character of this all-star video cast, who are driven underground into an alternate world by performer and dancer Novaya Shey to meet drag icon Ms. Sharon Le Grand, Vogue Ball founder Taboo, the speaker, model and dancer Sakeema Peng Crook, Drag & Movement artist Wet Mess.

The video was made with Eliza’s longtime friend and co-founder of Faboo TV, Jeanie Crystal – both have seen various stages of gentrification attempt to take over Hackney throughout their years of involvement in the scene.

Speaking of Hackney, Eliza Rose says, “This community in Hackney means so much to me, and working together is what has given me purpose, community, joy and so much art. It’s hard for black women working class and marginalized people to break through, so we need to support each other in each other’s art and uplift each other, otherwise it becomes impossible.

“Showing these worlds on screen is also an integral part of developing open-mindedness and showing young people that there are different ways of living here!” »

Adding to that, Jeanie Crystal says: “The scene of Eliza descending into the basement sums up what Hackney is all about. It’s a rabbit hole! You discover a new club in the basement and get drawn into it, and it opens a new world and community to you and you never look back.

“As soon as I got to Hackney, I met Eliza, I met all these amazing performance artists, and now I can’t get out of it, and I don’t want to get out of it! joy gives identity, and for me personally, it gives me so much of my art.

“I don’t really exist without Eliza or any of the other people in this video. We centered it in a Queer world as a tribute to that side of Hackney nightlife, and it was really important to be an authentic representation and accurate, and a real lived experience for everyone involved.

From Van Gogh’s famous “Starry Night“At Frida Kahlo’s”The two Fridas“, more often than not, we find ourselves contemplating these works of art without any idea of ​​their meaning. Each artist has his own reason for his creations, and these reasons arise from his subjective experiences. Thus, learning more about life artists gives more meaning to their pieces. It also brings those infamous creations to life. There are specific films that have captured the essence of certain artists’ lives, in turn, giving the viewer a glimpse into their experiences. some of the best biopics about the artists that depict their journeys in creating brilliant historical pieces.



8 Camille Claudel (1988)

This French biographical film focuses on the 19th century sculptor Camille Claudel. The significance of this film lies in its depiction of the sculptor’s experiences and her life, which reflect the male-dominated art world of the 19th century. Bruno Nuytten attempts to “establish Claudel’s own claims to greatness“, because historical data shows that she was most often eclipsed by her lover, Auguste Rodin. Camille Claudel illustrates the trauma Claudel, played by Isabelle Adjani, went through, while Rodin, played by Gérard Depardieu, takes everything from him. Adjani captures the intense emotions of Claudel’s character in an outstanding performance, which led to her being nominated for Best Actress at the 1989 Oscars. It is also noteworthy that, even after many years, the the film is still relevant todaygiven the gender inequalities that still exist.


seven Thirst for Life (1956)

Based on Irving Stone’s 1934 novel of the same name, thirst for life takes the viewer through the life of Vincent van Gogh. Even though van Gogh is a well-known artist now, he was rejected many times throughout his life, and this 1956 film perfectly captures his tumultuous life. With Kirk Douglas reprising the role of van Gogh, the film begins with van Gogh’s failed attempt to become a priest like his father. Following this, we see van Gogh finding himself in the realms of art in a very unlikely way. Unlike most painters, van Gogh never intended to pursue art, nor was he satisfied with his paintings. thirst for life does not fail to show van Gogh’s pain and grief, in turn, making this a film that guarantees the viewer a sense of sympathy for the protagonist.


Based on Christy Brown’s 1954 memoir of the same name, my left foot follows Brown’s story as an Irish writer and painter with cerebral palsy. Daniel Day-Lewis takes over the role of the protagonist and delivers an amazing interpretation of his character. What makes this film and Brown’s story unique is that Brown “produced hundreds of paintings in addition to writing over a thousand letters, a classic memoir, four novels and four books of poetry. – all with the toes of his left foot, the only limb over which he had muscle control.” Day-Lewis ended up winning numerous awards, including an Oscar and a BAFTA Film Award for Best Actor.

5 Pollock (2000)

In Pollock, Ed Harris depicts the life of American painter Jackson Pollock. The film opens with Pollock as a famous Abstract Expressionist painter and takes the viewer back to his past using flashbacks. From being forced out of his brother’s apartment to being rejected by potential buyers at his first showing, the story follows Pollock’s many failures. The film also focuses on Pollock’s own flaws, such as his infidelity, and ends on a sad note as Pollock is seen driving drunk, which leads to a tragic accident.


4 Maudie (2016)

Maudie is based on the “Canadian painter whose work was so exuberant, you never guess the hard life she livedMaud Dowley, played by Sally Hawkins, a cheerful character who juxtaposes her difficult experiences, comes to life in this film. We are shown how Dowley is treated with indifference by her family for her severe arthritis, and how she finds happiness through the art world Considered one of Sally Hawkins’ finest performances, Hawkins adds much-needed light to the film with her brilliant execution of Dowley.

3 The Danish Girl (2015)

The Danish Girl, a film by Tom Hooper, is based on the 2000 novel of the same name by David Ebershoff and centers on Danish painter Lili Elbe, who is also an early recipient of gender reassignment surgery. The film focuses on Lili Elbe, originally known as Einar Wegener, and her journey to becoming a transgender woman, which began with her wife asking her to pose as a female figure. With Eddie Redmayne taking on the role of Elba, we are shown how the character faces a lot of discomfort and pain because she is forced to pose as a man until she becomes complete at the end. with the reassignment surgery, which also causes his death. It should be noted that even though Redmayne delivered an incredible performance, the actor now regrets accepting the role because “a lot of people don’t have a chair at the table” and the role should have gone to a transgender actor.


2 Frida (2002)

Salma Hayek stars in Frida, a 2002 film that focuses on the life of the famous Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. The film began with the 1922 accident that 18-year-old Kahlo encounters, which ultimately impacted her entire life. However, this accident encourages her to paint, as the artist is seen having canvases brought to her by her father while she was on her way to recover from her ailments. Rather than focusing solely on its artistic side and its notoriety, Frida exposes Kahlo’s personal life, including her complicated relationship with Diego Rivera, played by Alfred Molina. The execution of this particular film, from its cinematography to the outstanding performance of the cast, is so phenomenal that the American Film Institute calls it a “film about art that is a work of art in itself.”

1 Loving Vincent (2017)

Yet another film about the infamous Vincent van Gogh, Loving Vincent unlike any other film the film world has encountered. Anna Clark gives a brief overview as to how the film was made stating; “A team of 125 classically trained oil painters worked for years on the project, producing approximately 65,000 hand-painted frames. Their work could not have been more faithful to van Gogh’s artistic style.”

This unique film allowed him to be nominated for numerous awards, including the 90th Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature. What sums up the story in Loving Vincent interesting is that it focuses on van Gogh’s life after his death. We follow the protagonist, Armand Roulin, played by Douglas Booth, on a journey to deliver van Gogh’s last letter to Theo van Gogh, whose death allows the letter to land in the hands of his widow. Van Gogh comes to life through his close allies, who reminisce about his character, in turn allowing him to live through them. It’s a brilliantly executed film, and it belongs at the top.

Whether natural or dyed, curly or straight, hair can be political, subversive, healthy or ethnic.

It also draws a fine line through issues of ethnicity and gender.

For Rosemary Meza-DesPlas, hair is a delicate tool and means of expression.

The female experience within a patriarchal society is the cornerstone of her work. She also works in watercolour, installation and performance.

The Farmington-based artist embroiders her own gray hair on black twill fabric in expressions of outrage, horror and strength. She is also one of 15 artists to receive a $50,000 Latinx Fellowship from the Mellon Foundation and the Ford Foundation in May.

She is the only artist from New Mexico in the group.

“The scholarship recognizes the most compelling Latinx artists working in the United States…and aims to address the systemic lack of support, visibility, and patronage for Latinx visual artists,” the press release reads.

Meza-DesPlas had no idea what was going on when she heard the news.

“It was a huge surprise to me,” she said in a phone interview from Farmington. “I cried tears of joy; I was overwhelmed.”

At the time when she turned to hairdressing, she was known for her wall drawings.

“A friend looked at my line work and said from afar it looked like hair,” Meza-DesPlas said. “I did a lot of trial and error. I tried to glue it on but it looked sloppy. So I thought of it as sewing.

The dichotomy of human hair, depending on the context, is that it can be attractive or unattractive: long, luxurious hair is sexy, but a hair in its soup is unattractive.

Meza-DesPlas harvests her own hair.

“I run my fingers through my hair in the morning,” she said. “I was brunette; now I’m gray.

“I love the materiality of the hair,” she continued. “It kind of has to do with feminism and ethnicity. It addresses issues of body image and identity.

“Hair is so loaded with meaning,” she added. “The hair can express both the Bible – the story of Samson and Delilah. I love the line work it creates. Mine is naturally curly. It’s very thick and coarse and it’s easy to work.

She starts with a line art and fills in the values ​​with her hair. Her latest works evoke themes of feminist outrage.

“What you whispered should be shouted” was born out of the #MeToo movement. The delicate stitching depicts a screaming woman, her own hair flying back in tendrils of flame. Meza-DesPlas had read an article about a Disney executive accused of sexual impropriety.

“Yo tambien”, Rosemary Meza-DesPlas, 2018, hand-stitched human gray hair on black twill fabric, 25×21 inches. (Courtesy of Rosemary Meza-DesPlas)

“The women knew,” Meza-DesPlas said. “They said if you go to a meeting with him never wear a skirt.

“Really, they should have shouted about it. They shouldn’t have whispered. We should have talked about it openly. »

She went “Yo tambien” (“Me too”) after reading Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 2017 post-election book “What Happened.”

“I was drawing the faces of the women listening to his concession speech,” Meza-DesPlas said. “They covered their faces with their hands, but their eyes spoke volumes.”

Likewise, the headless legs in “Marching Across Your Lawn, The Grass is on Fire” speak of anger and determination.

“I did a series on walking as a tool of agency and as a tool of anger to be an agent of change,” she said. “What do you do with your agency and activism when you get home?”

Born and raised in Garland, Texas, Meza-DesPlas has lived in Farmington since 2016. Both of her parents were originally from Mexico.

She received an MFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art (Hoffberger School of Painting) and a BFA from the University of North Texas. His works have been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums in the United States, Europe and Asia.

She will hang a new installation, “The Invisible Woman Syndrome,” at Form & Concept Gallery in Santa Fe, 435 S. Guadalupe St., which debuted May 27.

Artists on Our Radar” is a monthly series produced by the Artsy team. Using our artistic expertise and access to Artsy data, we’re spotlighting five artists who are catching our attention. To make our selections, we determined which artists made an impact in the past month through new gallery showings, exhibitions, auctions, art fairs or new work on Artsy.

Born in 1991, Taipei. Lives and works in New York.

With a background in fashion and visual arts, Taiwanese artist John Yuyi started making and selling temporary tattoos to fund his visa after interning with Jason Wu in New York. Impactful tattoos have become an integral part of Yuyi’s photography practice. Her models, sometimes models, sometimes herself, are covered in it to comment on consumer culture and the effects of social media.

In Wear NIKE 7 (2018), featured in Yuyi’s eponymous solo exhibition opening June 10 at Galerie Christophe Guye in Zurich, a figure bears the iconic slogan “Just Do It” inscribed across her bare chest. The Nike logo also appears on his face and neck alongside computing icons and pop-up browsers from the 2000s, illustrating how we construct our identities in the post-internet era through brand affinity.

During this time at Tinder match 2 (2016), a young woman with “It’s a match!” printed on her cheek and “NOPE” on her forehead poses for the camera. The work demonstrates how social media validation has become a potential source of identity construction and self-esteem measurement.

Yuyi’s photographs both engage with and critique how internet culture has shaped our perception of ourselves and others. She has exhibited in group exhibitions in New York, Paris, Taipei and elsewhere, and is Artist-in-Residence 2021-2022 at the Silver Art Project in New York.

Born in 1936, Shigaraki, Japan. Lives and works in Shigaraki, Japan.

The work of ceramic artist Yasuhisa Kohyama is deeply rooted in the history of craftsmanship and her heritage in her native Japan. His sometimes organic, sometimes geometric forms were the subject of a solo exhibition at Officine Saffi in Milan earlier this year, and are currently on display in a group exhibition at browngrotta arts in Wilton, Connecticut.

Focused on ancient hand-building and wood-firing practices and deeply influenced by Jomon, Shigaraki and Yayoi pottery, Kohyama keeps the past alive by creating stoneware pieces that are both raw and elegant, unmistakably earthly yet almost extraterrestrial. Although he never uses glazes in his work, his vessels take on a variety of hues when fired in the anagamakiln he built, the first of its kind built in the region since the Middle Ages.

Kohyama studied as an apprentice with ceramic designer Sakuzo Hineno and taught at the Cleveland Institute of Art; School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts; and Office for the Arts at Harvard; among other schools. His work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Yale University Art Gallery, and many other institutions.

In his 2018 solo exhibition “Beyond Bars” at the Gallery at W83 in New York, Jaramillo flipped the script on common tourist images of Peru to tenderly chronicle, via portraits, life within and just beyond. of Lurigancho, a prison in Lima.

For his current solo show “Tierra del Sol,” or Land of the Sun, Jaramillo has turned New York’s Selenas Mountain into a rodeo. On the gallery walls are Jaramillo’s images of the annual “El Clásico de las Américas” charrería in Pico Rivera, California. A charrería is a Mexican rodeo tradition that features the horsemanship, performance, costume, and athleticism of early cattle herding activities in the haciendas of Old Mexico. In these photographs, Jaramillo humanizes often overlooked work for the spectacle of sport through intense, fragmented close-ups of performers’ bodies.

Jaramillo received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts and his photographs have been featured widely in popular magazines and publications including The New York Times, the new yorker, Los Angeles Timeand Museum Magazine. He was the 2022 recipient of the Forest Lawn Museum Arts Fellowship.

Zhanna Kadyrova has become famous for her practice of transforming familiar building materials, such as industrial tiles, glass and stone, into impressive conceptual sculptures that take aim at the Soviet history of her native Ukraine. In a new work that responds to the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces on February 24, Kadyrova focuses on the Ukrainian people at this time.

After the invasion, Kadyrova left her home in Kyiv and headed west, settling in a village near the Hungarian border, where she set up a studio and gallery. There, a number of large, smooth stones in a river caught Kadyrova’s eye. They resembled the simple round wheat loaves found across Ukraine and sparked the idea for a new body of work – “Palyanitsia”, the Ukrainian word for bread.

Palyanitsia has become a kind of shibboleth. The hard-to-pronounce word is used by Ukrainians to distinguish Russian enemies from Ukrainian comrades. Inspired by the symbolism, Kadyrova gathered the stones and cut them into chunks and slices, while leaving some whole. The resulting sculptures are on display in Venice until June 30 in a special exhibition sharing the name of the series, presented by the Galleria Continua on the occasion of the Biennale; and were previously exhibited in Berlin at the König Galerie. Kadyrova donates 100% of proceeds to voluntary organizations and her peers who remained in Kyiv to join the defensive forces. So simple, yet so effective, the works are stark reminders of the devastating loss of life, displacement and destruction.

A graduate of the Taras Shevchenko art school in Kyiv, Kadyrova has received numerous international accolades for her work, including the main PinchukArtCentre prize in 2013. She has been presented at the 55th, 56th and 58th editions of the Venice Biennale, including the 2019 international exhibition “May You Live in Interesting Times”. Her work has been exhibited in major institutions and galleries, including the Galleria Continua, the Baró Galeria, the Shanghai International Sculpture Project JISP, the Palais de Tokyo, the Center Pompidou and the Pinchuk Art Centre, where, before the current conflict, she was to stage his first career retrospective in 2023.

Emily Weiner’s paintings, often housed in custom-made frames, are rich in symbolism and historical allusions. As Weiner described in his artist statement, “my works configure material icons, geometries and patterns that have been revived, reshaped and recoded over time.” Reusing the past while creating a contemporary lexicon of her own, Weiner eagerly explores a wide range of aesthetic avenues.

In Cassandra (2022), a terracotta frame borders a painting of an ancient Greek red-figure krater, while in Mundus Inversus (2022), a maple frame draws a shimmering moon peeking through a pair of blood-red curtains. These works evoke artists from all over the history of art – from Euphronios to Georgia O’Keefe to Jonas Wood – while refusing to be pinpointed by any particular era.

Weiner received a BA from Barnard College and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts. She has been exhibited at Columbia University’s LeRoy Neiman Gallery, CULT | Aimee Friberg and Grizzly Grizzly exhibitions. His work has recently been included in group exhibitions at the Red Arrow Gallery, including “SHOW UP!” and “Mundus Inversus”.

In 1970, David Cronenberg wrote, shot, edited and directed a science fiction film titled Future Crimes. The film is set in 1977, in a world where all sexually mature women have been killed by a plague caused by cosmetics and it tells the story of Tripod (Ronald Mlodzik). Like Cronenberg’s other films, the film explored elements such as the distortion of the body, the grotesqueness of sex, and the intersections between technology and the human body. Now Cronenberg is back with a movie of the same name, which won’t be a remake of the original. In fact, this version of the film is very different from the 1970 version.

The 2022 version of Future Crimes takes place in a world where humans can freely perform surgeries on their bodies without feeling pain and are therefore engaged in further transformations and mutations. In this world, Saul Tenser, a famous performance artist, joins forces with his partner Caprice to publicly show the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances. Like the 1970 film, the 2022 version of Future Crimes was also written and directed by Cronenberg. The film was produced by Robert Lantos and the stars Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux, and Kristen Stewart.

COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY

Future Crimes has been in development for years. The production of the film was to begin as early as 2003 under the title Painkillers. The film was to be set in an anesthetized society and would explore the world of performance art. In this world, pain is the new forbidden pleasure while performing surgery and self-harm in public is considered the new sex. Nic Cage was the first option for the role of Saul Tenser but Cage dropped out and Ralph Fiennes was attached to the star instead. The film’s budget was $35 million and it was to be shot in Toronto, Canada and released in late 2006. However, the project fell through.

News of the project resurfaced in February 2021 when Viggo Mortensen revealed he was working on a project with Cronenberg. He explained that the project was something that Cronenberg had written a long time ago but had never been made and now he had refined it and wanted to shoot it. Later in April, it was announced that Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart were joining the cast of the film. In August 2021, principal photography began and ended in Athens, Greece in September 2021. The film premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, where it received a six-minute standing ovation. Looking for how to watch this body horror movie? Here’s how, where and when you can watch Future Crimes.

Future Crimes has a limited release in New York and Los Angeles theaters on June 3, 2022. The film will premiere in the rest of the country on June 10, 2022.

Neon, the production and distribution company of crimes of the future, released a trailer of the movie on May 6, 2022. The trailer introduces us to a celebrity, Saul Tenser, performing surgeries on his body in public for the most viewers. Tenser uses his body as a canvas to see how far humans can go when manipulating their flesh. As expected, the trailer shows some serious footage such as penetrated skin, chunks of flesh, bones, and more. This prepares us for the extreme images that we will see in the film.


What is Future Crimes about?

The official synopsis of Future Crimes reads as follows:

As the human species adapts to a synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations. With his companion Caprice (Léa Seydoux), Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen), a famous performer, publicly stages the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances. Timlin (Kristen Stewart), an investigator for the National Organ Registry, obsessively follows their movements, which is when a mysterious group is revealed… Their mission: to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.
