Fashion designer Patrick Kelly, artist Martin Wong, and disco legend Sylvester are among the inaugural artists – both famous and unknown – exhibited in a new online gallery dedicated to preserving the creative legacies of artists lost to AIDS. The initiative was launched by POBA today to coincide with World AIDS Day 2015. Recognizing that the works of many artists who died in the early years of the crisis in the 1980s and 1990s were created before digital preservation was possible, the initiative, Art Lives, also enables families and friends to digitally preserve and share the artworks of their loved ones in a permanent gallery.
PKPR secured extensive launch day coverage in a wide range of major outlets including Slate (”The Work of Artists Lost AIDS Lives On”), Vice’s The Creators Project, Quartz, Huffington Post, HyperAllergic, OUT, WWD, The Daily Dot, MR Magazine, DuJour, and Untapped Cities.
For the second year in a row, PKPR handled publicity for Festival Albertine. The New Yorker’s David Remnick, choreographer Yvonne Rainer, graphic novelist Phoebe Gloeckner (The Diary of a Teenage Girl), author Margo Jefferson (Negroland), and Riad Sattouf, a former contributor to Charlie Hebdo whose new book, The Arab of the Future, was published in the U.S. this month to wide acclaim, were among the American and French-speaking authors and artists that headlined the five day festival.
Coverage highlights include a feature in the New York Times’ Weekend Miser (”Lively Debate and Discussion at Festival Albertine”), Time Out New York (”Lit Lovers and Francophiles: Get Excited”), Flavorpill, New York Review of Books, Adweek, and Publishing Perspectives.
The greenest office tower in the world, The Tower at PNC Plaza, opened in Pittsburgh, PA earlier this month, One of its most groundbreaking innovations is how it engages with employees to communicate the invisible things that the building is doing behind the scenes to conserve energy and water – and the role that employees can play in maximizing the building’s efficiency.
The communication is all done through a soaring, 24-foot-high installation in the Tower’s lobby that uses real-time data from the building to reveal how the building is performing through light, color, and sound patterns. It’s been hailed as a “dazzling, data-driven showstopper” by MNN (Mother Nature Network) and received coverage in outlets from Slate to Architect Magazine.
