A 1970 painting from #SamGilliam's iconic "Drape" series, in which the canvases are freed from their stretchers and suspended, was recently acquired by @dallasmuseumart. #MuseumMonday

Tonight at 6:00PM, #21cOklahomaCity is pleased to welcome New York-based artist James Clar to discuss his site-specific installation, River of Time. Inspired by the history of assembly-line production, River of Time uses conveyor belts to provide a material link to the building’s history as an assembly plant, while animating the passage of time and the transformation of the environment. Clar uses technology as a medium to critique the dis-associative effects of technology itself, and to explore intersections between data-driven techniques and natural phenomena, human emotions, or current socio-political conditions. Event will be held in Gallery 4. Free and open to the public.

Am heutigen #museummonday öffnen wir den Blick auf das antike Mosaik "Oceanus mit Gefolge". 1848/49 wurde es bei Bauarbeiten der Main-Weserbahn in Bad Vilbel entdeckt. Vermutlich gehörte das es zu einer römischen Thermenanlage einer großzügigen Villa, dies legt auch das dargestellte Sujet nahe. Im Zentrum fand sich einst der Meeregott Oceanus (heute größtenteils zerstört) umringt von Seekentauren, Delfinen, Aalen und Schwänen. Kurz nach der Entdeckung gelangte es in die Großherzogliche Sammlung im Residenzschloss, bei der Planung des Messelbaus sollte dem Mosaik ein repräsentativer Ort zugedacht werden, so gestaltete Alfred Messel ein Stilraum, der an ein römisches Peristylhaus erinnert. Aus dem Bestand des HLMD: Oceanus mit Gefolge, Ende 2. Anfang 3. Jahrhundert nach Chr., Bad Vilbel, Mosaik #hlmd #hessischeslandesmuseum #hessischeslandesmuseumdarmstdt #hlmdArcheologie #museum #museumslove #instamuseum #AlfredMessel #mosaik #oceanus #thermen #archeologie #archeology #mosaic #mosaico Today we present our mosaic "Oceanus with his Follower". It was found during the construction of the Main-Weser-Railway in Bad Vilbel in 1848/49, and was taken to the Großherzogliches Museum in Darmstadt. Alfred Messel, the architect of the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt, was inspired by the architecture of the Roman peristyle house and created one of the most attraktive rooms for the mosaic in the new building.

Our Monday has certainly been cheered up at the Museum, as we get to unveil our brand new Edward Thomas Study Centre. Available to book from April 2017 on our new website, when you can come and enjoy it too. #museummonday #mondaymotivation #edwardthomas #studycentre #BookEngland

In Trier sind nur noch die letzten Reste dieses Baus zu finden: Die Martinsmühle, welche  George Clarkson Stanfield (1828-1878) als Hauptmotiv für ein romantisches Landschaftsbild diente. Emsige Wäscherinnen tummeln sich im Bildvordergrund und am gegenüberliegenden Ufer erheben sich hinter dem Dorf Pallien die Sandsteinfelsen und Moselberge. 
Schon in römischer Zeit war die Mosel als Verkehrsweg für die Stadt Trier von zentraler Bedeutung, heute trennt eine hochwassergeschützte Schnellstraße die Stadt von der Mosel.

Every Monday should be #museummonday. This exhibition seriously does not get old. I totally get what the curator was saying last Sept when he said he would spot something new in Escher's pieces even if he had seen them 100 times... Last chance this week to catch Journey to Infinity: Escher's World of Wonder!! It has really set the bar high for future exhibitions here...

I missed posting on actual #museummonday, but here's a special love-themed entry for Valentine's Day. "Bourgeois Bust—Jeff and Ilona"
Jeff Koons, 1991
Koons based the sculpture off baroque busts, with himself and his wife, Italian porn actress Ilona Staller, as the figures.
From the plaque: "With "Bourgeois Bust," I wanted ... to be able to being Ilona's body and my body down together in a point so that it's a heart—a symbol of love—and take the flesh and cut through it to form in that way without any sense of violence.'"

#MuseumMonday is focusing on New Lanark World Heritage Site this week. #GoIndustrial had a fab visit to the World Heritage Site last week! Have you been? This view up the mill lade reminds us that water was key to so much of Scotland's industry, back in the day.
Founded in 1785, New Lanark became a model industrial community under the the philanthropist and Utopian idealist Robert Owen. The village is a remarkable example of an early industrial settlement, on the River Clyde.

#Repost 🎉🎉 Our Museum's Director of Exhibition & Curator, Liu Lin @mengjie724 features in @artasiapacific #MuseumMonday post. "Hao Liang's Gong Banqian Four Hundred and Seventeen (2016) was created for 'Mountain Sites: Views of Laoshan,' an exhibition at Sifang Art Museum. The artist used scenes from around the museum to replace the imagery of the Jinling mountains created over three hundred years ago by Gong Xian (1618–89), who was also known as Gong Banqian and considered the leader of the Jinling Eight. Hao mimicked the strokes of Gong Banqian to tap into the crevices where art history meets reality, and created an album in which the spurious can be mistaken as the genuine." .
四方当代美术馆收藏的这件《龚半千四百一七》,是郝量参与“山中美术馆”展览时创作的。他使用美术馆周遭的现实场景去替换龚贤(1618-1689,字半千,明末清初画家,位列“金陵八家”之首)在三百余年前描绘的金陵山色,他全用龚半千笔法,钻到艺术史和现实交织的罅隙中,制成一本以假乱真的老画册。
