LIFE: 2011’s Oscar Hopeful Portraits

Oscar Nominee for The King's Speech, Colin Firth

A sexy ballerina. A 14-year-old out for justice. A monarch fighting his stammer. These are just a few of the characters that have fascinated moviegoers over the past year — and now, the actors who brought them to life are poised to enjoy that greatest of Hollywood achievements: an Oscar nomination. Just before the contenders for the Academy Awards are announced (on January 25), LIFE.com presents exclusive portraits, taken by photographer Jeff Vespa, of eight stars hoping to find their name on the ballot. Here: The King’s Speech star Colin Firth, the front-runner for Best Actor (more on that in a bit). See the full gallery on LIFE.com.

LIFE.com – ‘Twilight’: Meet the New Victoria

Bryce Dallas Howard

Bryce Dallas Howard Twilight newcomer.

‘ECLIPSE’ EXCLUSIVE: Geting to Know Bryce Dallas Howard

Don’t let her serene energy and stunning looks fool you — Bryce Dallas Howard knows how to go for the jugular. “I had to get in touch with my animal instincts,” says the 29-year-old actress about taking over the pivotal role of Victoria, the villainous vampire out for heroine Bella’s blood in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. “At one point, I was actually working out in my head, ‘How would you physically suck blood from someone’s neck? Would you take a breath first? Would you open up your throat to drink?'” Before heading to the theater on June 30 to see exactly how Victoria goes about hunting her prey this time, get to know the actress who brings her to life. Here, Howard — photographed exclusively for LIFE by editor-at-large Jeff Vespa — opens up about stepping into the high-profile franchise, branching out into other aspects of Hollywood (just like her famous dad, Ron), and becoming very good at playing bad.  See more at LIFE.com – http://www.life.com/image/first/in-gallery/45451/twilight-meet-the-new-victoria

WSJ.com – Deitch Alums Step Into Void

This is an article from the Wall Street Journal on the new gallery I am partnering in. If you are in NY come by and check it out.

Not Quite Open For Business at the Hole NYC

by Erica Orden

Later this month, an exhibition featuring the work of at least nine artists culled from the recently shuttered Deitch Projects, one of the most influential galleries of the last two decades, will open on Greene Street in SoHo. Curated by two former Deitch Projects directors in consultation with the gallery’s former executive director, the show will doubtless draw the proto-Deitch Projects crowd: young, culturally savvy, aggressively hip.

The Deitch Projects alumnus conspicuously absent from the group? Jeffrey Deitch.

When Mr. Deitch closed his gallery on June 1 to begin a new job as director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, his departure was widely considered to leave a hole in the fabric of New York’s contemporary art scene. Following its inception in 1996, the Deitch gallery arranged exhibitions, parties, parades and other events with some of the most popular and controversial art-world figures in recent memory, such as Vanessa Beecroft, Dash Snow, Kehinde Wiley and Shepard Fairey. On the night of its final opening, hundreds spilled out from the exhibition space, flooding the surrounding streets for nearly four hours.

Now, several longtime members of Mr. Deitch’s staff are attempting to fill the void he left with the Hole, a new gallery to be announced Thursday by former directors Kathy Grayson and Meghan Coleman. Working with many former Deitch artists like Kembra Pfahler and Evan Gruzis, and with help from former executive director Suzanne Geiss, the new gallery will inhabit approximately 2,000 square feet of pristine ground-floor space at 104 Greene St.

The inaugural group show, “Not Quite Open for Business,” opens June 26. In coming months, the Hole will feature a solo show by artist Mat Brinkman and an installation by Kenny Scharf and the artist collective Dearraindrop. A small back-room shop (to be named Holey Books) will stock art books and rare graffiti tools. And Ms. Grayson and Ms. Coleman plan to introduce quirky side projects, like a dating service for artists (called Hole Lotta Love).
