From AFTH website

“Aestheticism is a search after the signs of the beautiful, it is the search after the secret of life. The secret of life is in art.”
—OSCAR WILDEArt From the Heart 2011 happens Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 25CPW(25 Central Park West) from 7-10p, and is curated by Jo-Anneke Van Der Molen.AFTH is a pop-up created to connect modern audiences to the finest art of our time. The magic is interaction: guests who purchase a tag can claim any one photograph on display at the exhibition opening party — first come, first served.AFTH does not charge art submission fees; every artist who submits work for consideration is invited to the opening gala; submissions not tagged are returned; artists whose works are tagged are paid 55% of net profits, distributed equally.

Tags are available in limited numbers, and tag-holding guests are advised to arrive well in advance of the opening of doors.

Contemporary photography explores frontiers in content and technique to serve new communications and evolve attraction through aesthetics. Aesthetics create a channel to portray ideas and emotional content. AFTH presents each artwork equally, enabling tag holders to connect with the intrinsic value of the art shown.The experience highlights the complicity of the beholder’s eye in our communal
search for truth in beauty.JO-ANNEKE VAN DER MOLEN

Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP)

Photographs and text by Minny Lee

Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP) is a premium photography museum in Paris, France that houses extensive collections of photography related prints, books and films. The current building was built in 1706 as the residence for Hénault de Cantobre, the chief tax collector. Sometime thereafter, it was converted to a hotel and then, in 1914, became the property of the city of Paris. The building was restored and a new wing was added later which now extends into the street, Rue de Fourcy where the main entrance to MEP can be found. Its facade, ironwork and central staircase reflect neo-classical architecture.

Images in this series were made in November 2010. Through the Reflexions Materclass’s Institutional Work Program, I was granted three days to photograph within the MEP. I visited the collections department, restoration center, exhibition floors, and library. These places retained and evinced remnants of mastery craft and care for photographic medium. My journey began by imagining how the first owner of the place would revisit the place today and what he would find. I found details of the interior evoked mystery and intimacy. The gloomy weather of Paris in November created a melancholic mood. It also reflected my state of mind and physical condition at that time.
