Detroit's Museum of New Art (MONA) will be opening a new exhibition as part of the city's Art Detroit Now week:
The show, "New Media, Sex, and Culture in the 21st Century," will feature the work of over 50 international, national, and regional artists who explore femininity, masculinity, desire, pleasure, family politics, liberation and repression, pornography, prostitution, sexual violence, exhibitionism and other topics.
The show's theme recognizes that our digital media culture is saturated with sexual representations and complex issues of sexuality from teen "sexting" with mobile phones to YouTube "Booty" videos. The work displayed in this exhibition will probe, comment on, and question such issues through artwork produced in many media including video, performance, photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, interactive computer games, and printmaking.
The opening on Saturday,
October 2 (6 to 9pm), will also feature several performances.
The show will be launched
in collaboration with a special issue of NmediaC, the online Journal of New
Media and Culture, which will feature academic articles on the same topic of
"New Media, Sex, and Culture in the 21st Century."
(new, improved and bigger than ever)
of the last century was accelerated by broad advancements into the science
and the art of intrusion. Now, the 21st century allows each and every one of
us to carry the information age in our pockets and purses. We can talk,
text, tweet, email, view the world on the net, and record and send out our
"life" images from anywhere and everywhere we happen to be.

In the end, the creative act is not performed by the artist at all: the spectator brings art to life and thus fulfills the work on the spot. THE JANE SHOW brings together art and spectator as one through this documenting of a single museum visitor.

In his book "The Decisive Moment", Cartier-Bresson spoke of the 'defining moment' in a photograph as one that occurs within a fraction of a second when you are taking a picture, Bresson called it "a supreme moment captured with a single shot". What occurs before and after this defining moment is left up to viewer's imagination. Portraits move beyond the frame and are completed by stories the viewer brings to an existing narrative. Moments which expand the captured image appear naturally in the compelling photographs of three young photographers, the second show due to open this month at the Detroit Contemporary Center of Photography. Paolo Morales, Erica Shires, and Collin Lafleche use the portrait as a starting point for creating personal statements about themselves and their worlds.

The Museum of New Art (MONA), which remains the first artist-run museum in the world, has announced the winners of its Prinzhorn International Art Prize for contemporary artists. The Detroit museum was founded in 1996 by artists who wanted to create a space for the exploration of new art and to encourage critical discourse in the region. Over the years, MONA has become the proving ground and springboard for hundreds of artists, both new and established.
The winners of this year's Prinzhorn Prize have been chosen because their work is conceptually and emotionally rewarding, both illuminating current artistic dynamics and offering poignant insight into the human condition. All six artists demonstrate adventurousness, conceptual strength, and skillful execution in their work. The Prinzhorn Prize will be given annually, and will be accompanied by an invitation to exhibit for each artist.
