Since the beginning of time,
doors have symbolized both great opportunities and thwarted dreams.
The open door is a metaphor for new life, a passage
from one stage of life to another, and metamorphosis.
Closed doors often represent rejection and exclusion.

Xiaojing Yan

Xiaojing Yan creates mixed media installations, which express personal ideas of identity, history and communication from the perspective of an immigrant working between cultures. Yan employs traditional Chinese materials and techniques and reinvents them within a Western aesthetic and presentation. In several of her series, Yan uses the reeds and fibre papers of Chinese lantern making to mold the fragile cocoons of an immigrant life – where staying safe and protected within an unfamiliar, often intimidating cultural environment is essential to emerging and adapting with a reincarnated identity.” [via]

While he is currently barred from leaving China, renowned artist and activist Ai Weiwei has been working on “@Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz” since his release from prison in 2011. Incarcerated for his politically outspoken artwork, Ai used his experience as fuel for a unique exhibition that fills the historical former prison and military fortress with site-specific installations that draw attention to human rights crises worldwide. Orchestrated remotely with the help of San Francisco-based curator Cheryl Haines and legions of volunteers, the exhibition is as much a spectacle as it is an educational experience.

Getting organised for the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival Exhibition in Eden Court, Inverness on the 1st October.

I’ve been working with students from mental health charity, Ragtag on the Isle of Skye for the last 3 months to produce a wall mural and outfits that intepret the idea of ‘Power’ in relation to mental health. Producing art is a vulnerable process and all the students have shown a lot of courage creating pieces of work for the exibition that is personal to them.

“I still paint. I love the joy that color can give to our lives and to our communities. I try to bring something of the artist in me to my politics.”

Meet Creative Time Summit: Stockholm keynote speaker Edi Rama! As Prime Minister of Albania, Rama is loved for championing a number of initiatives that have transformed urban space for the better–from beautifying the city with paint to creating an abundance of new green space. He has led important post-Communist reforms, including the vetting of government officials to reestablish civic trust. In addition to his civic innovations, Rama is a noteworthy painter and writer, and grew up the son of a sculptor.

Learn more about Rama and the other incredible #CTsummit speakers.

The typical carpet comes in a few familiar fabrics and textiles, but the artists Marcia Nolte, Stijn van der Vleuten and Bob Waardenburg at We Make Carpets have been throwing in a dose of the unexpected by making rugs and carpets out of everyday objects. Staples, cocktail sticks, paper clips, bandaids, and more become repurposed to form illusory carpets in their temporary installations.
