A new London exhibition is displaying portraits of Yezidi women who survived violence when living under ISIS . The #IamYezidi exhibit at the Lacey Contemporary Gallery in the British capital features portraits of women who were kept captive by the terrorist organization and who sat for the photographer Benjamin Eagle. We want to tell these women's stories, to make sure that they're not faceless, said Ravinder Singh, the founder of Khalsa Aid, an NGO which helped organize the exhibition. The Yezidis are an ancient religious minority from northern Iraq, who have been the targets of ISIS genocide, according to the UN . The faith draws on multiple religions, including Christianity and Islam. ISIS militants have separated men and boys from their families and kill those who refuse to convert in an attempt to exterminate the Yazidi identity.

Fifty years after homosexuality was decriminalised, a new Tate Britain exhibition uncovers the stories of the LGBT artists who were branded criminals You might think they were three Hoorays on a spree, caught by a paparazzo’s bulb in the fishbowl of a cab. Michael Pitt-Rivers almost appears to be smiling, hair slicked back, collar jacked up. Lord Montagu has turned towards him. Only Peter Wildeblood is looking out, jaw jutting forward, some unreadable emotionfury, defiance, disgustpassing across his face. The photograph was taken outside Winchester Crown Court on 24 March 1954. The men were on their way to prison, not a party; sentenced for homosexual offences including gross indecency and buggery, after two RAF servicemen with whom they had spent a larky weekend in a Hampshire beach hut were coerced into turning queen’s evidence against them.

What happens when a piano is combined with technology? “Kids or anybody could learn how to play the piano really properly from the best musicians in the world,” said Mischa Dohler, composer and professor of Wireless Communications at King’s College London. 'Could we digitize skills?' Dohler’s aim is to build a database that records the movements of a piano player’s hands with the help of a special sensing glove that tracks every movement of the musician’s joints. Once the data is collected, a piano student can then wear another glove that can train the student’s hands. “You could imagine this so-called exoskeleton that you can put on your hand. It will pressurize the hands and the joints, and will move it gently at the beginning, and nudge essentially the body into the right shape and in the right way of moving your hand,” Dohler said. It is an example of what Dohler calls the “Internet of Skills” that he is demonstrating at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition in Los Angeles.

LANGKAWI: The next Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace (LIMA) exhibition planned to be held in 2019 will have more participation from the commercial industry, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said today. He said the defence industry formed a larger portion of the 555 exhibitors in LIMA '17 and he wanted the civilian industry to comprise at least 50 per cent of the total participants come LIMA '19. "Moving LIMA into the commercial sector, the civil aviation (and maritime industry) is the right way forward," he told a press conference after visiting the exhibition at the Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre, here. According to him, the defence industry players were now fighting for "a very limited global cake" as the market for military equipment had reached saturation point. "We want to show to the world and maybe we can lead the way to say that it is not about war all the time.

A new exhibition delves into the secretive Belgian designers tenure as director of womenswear for the French house One-Minute Read Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 3:12pm Fashion is often full of drama and bravado, and few designers shy away from taking their catwalk curtain call to soak up the applause for their latest collection. But this couldn't be further from the truth for one of the industry's most influential figures, Martin Margiela, who throughout his career has notoriously shied away from the camera – to the extent that there are only a handful of photos of him in circulation. A new exhibition at MoMu, Antwerp's museum of fashion, will lift the lid on this mysterious character with a retrospective delving into one of his most important tenures, as director of womenswear at Hermes. When then-CEO of the brand, Jean-Louis Dumas, approached Margiela in the late 1990s to convince him to take on the role, it marked a bold move for the classic French fashion house.
