Fifa ganha exposição no 'Museu da Máfia' dos Estados Unidos

A partir do dia 1º de setembro, a Fifa terá um lugar especial no Museu Nacional do Crime Organizado e Aplicação da Lei localizado em Las Vegas, nos Estados Unidos. Popularmente conhecido como 'Museu da Máfia' ou MOB Museum, o local conta a história do crime organizado mundial e reservará um espaço para a mostra batizada de 'O jogo bonito fica feio'.



'Propinas, segredos e manipulação de resultados'. É assim que o Museu da Máfia convida o público para a mostra. 'Detalhes incisivos e esclarecedores tirados das manchetes atuais e composição da composição que assola a Fifa, organização que comanda o futebol internacional', prometem os organizadores da exposição.


Até onde foi divulgado, o evento contará com fotos, notícias e um espaço interativo. O diretor executivo do Museu espera atrair muitos turistas locais com “uma exibição sobre um dos esportes mais populares do mundo”. No escândalo da Fifa, o FBI vem utilizando artíficios comumente usados contra organizações criminosas e facções nos Estados Unidos.

Holanda comemora 125 anos da herança de Van Gogh

Camponeses, natureza, cores e redemoinhos. Essas são algumas marcas que carregaram as telas de Vicent van Gogh ao redor do mundo. Na última quarta-feira (dia 29), o legado do pintor completou 125 anos. Para celebrar, a Holanda, terra natal do artista, montou uma programação que reúne as principais atrações relativas ao acervo. 

Dálias preenchem o retrato do artista na Museum Square (foto divulgação)


O Museu Van Gogh, em Amsterdã, e o Museu Kröller Müller, situado em Otterlo e dono da segunda maior coleção privada do pós-impressionista estão na lista. 

LIVRO
O espaço comemora o aniversário das pinceladas com o lançamento do The Vincent van Gogh Atlas, um livro que fornece informações sobre o pintor com um amplo conjunto de fotografias, desenhos, cartas, mapas detalhados e topografias. Escrito por Nienke Denekamp e René van Blerk, em colaboração com Teio Meedendorp, o material foi publicado na própria quarta-feira em holandês, francês e inglês.

MUSEUM SQUARE
Composto por 50 mil dálias, um enorme retrato do pintor (foto) foi montado por voluntários e apresentado na Museum Square, em Amsterdã, ao lado do Museu de Van Gogh. A flor escolhida é referência aos campos de Zundert, cidade em que o artista passou sua infância.

MUSEU VAN GOGH
Entre os destaques da comemoração estão a abertura da nova entrada do museu, que será inaugurada em 4 de setembro, e a exposição Munch: Van Gogh com estreia agendada para 25 de setembro. O espaço registrou o milionésimo visitante há poucos dias. Falando nisso, dados indicam que a cada dez turistas brasileiros em Amsterdã, sete vão até o museu.

KRÖLLER MÜLLER
Antes de começar, é importante lembrar que o movimento Van Gogh: 125 anos de inspiraçãooferecido pelo local já recebeu cerca de 190 mil visitantes. Além disso, durante a próxima quarta-feira, o Kröller irá transmitir o filme Vida e Morte de Van Gogh, dirigido por Paul Cox.

Un été achalandé dans les musées à Québec

Musée de la civilisation de Québec

L'affluence est en hausse dans les musées à Québec depuis le début de la saison estivale. La qualité des expositions et aussi la météo expliquent cette hausse de l'achalandage.

Le Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ) connaît une augmentation de 25 % du nombre de visiteurs depuis le début de l'été. L'exposition intitulée Inspiration Japon présentée jusqu'au 27 septembre contribue à cet engouement.

« C'est multifactoriel, c'est une conjoncture vraiment particulière cette année. C'est relié dans un premier temps à la qualité de notre exposition. Après ça, on peut se rabattre aussi sur la météo. On propose des activités intérieures, alors c'est clair que lorsqu'il y a la pluie, les nuages ou les grandes chaleurs, c'est systématique, on voit plus de monde débarquer au musée », soutient Linda Tremblay du MNBAQ.

Les visiteurs sont aussi au rendez-vous au Musée de la civilisation de Québec. Une augmentation de l'affluence de 16 % a été observée pour le mois de juillet. L'exposition Égypte magiqueprésentée jusqu'au 10 avril 2016 attire les foules.

Le directeur du Musée de la civilisation, Michel Côté, souligne que le nombre de visiteurs est en hausse partout dans le monde. Au Québec, 14 millions de personnes ont franchi les portes d'un musée l'an dernier. Cette tendance ne fléchit pas.

« C'est certainement l'une des institutions culturelles les plus fréquentées avec le cinéma et les bibliothèques. Donc, il y a un véritable besoin, un véritable engouement pour les musées. C'est lié aussi, à mon avis, à l'élargissement du mandat traditionnel de conservation des musées pour en faire des vrais lieux de culture où on retrouve du théâtre, de la musique et de la danse aussi maintenant », explique Michel Côté.

Des Québécois préfèrent également demeurer au Québec cet été en raison du taux de change défavorable. Cette tendance profite aux institutions comme les musées.

Jordan Archaeological Museum



The idea of a national museum that would present the treasures of Jordan’s archeological and cultural heritage was first raised in the 1960’s. In 1980 HRH Crown Prince El Hassan bin Talal held the first International Conference on the History and Archaeology of Jordan at the University of Oxford, where conferees recommended the establishment of a “National Museum”. He founded and chaired the Society of Jordanian Culture in 1989, which worked on issues that developed into general concepts for the museum. Then in 1999 a loan agreement was signed with the Government of Japan for financing the ‘Tourism Sector Development Project’ of which a national museum was a sub-project.







In 2002 King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein issued a royal decree stating the establishment of a “National Museum”, and accredited it by law in 2003.

The museum was brought to life on the ground in 2005, when HM Queen Rania Al-Abdullah, chair of the museum’s governing Board of Trustees, laid the cornerstone of the museum building and the Board adopted the name The Jordan Museum.

HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, vice-chair of the Board said “The Jordan museum will be a place that embodies our belief in the importance of education, learning, personal growth, and discovery. This entity will also provide an opportunity for visitors to think about the historical and cultural aspects that make up the society that surrounds them.”

Building

The chief architect of the museum building is Ja’far Toukan, a pioneering Jordanian architect and the designer of many major buildings in Jordan. He has skillfully woven the concept of the building into its very fabric, with exterior materials suggesting the past and present (rough and smooth stones) and the future (glass). The responsibility for the museum development is shared by the Ministry of Public Works and Housing, the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and the Greater Municipality, in collaboration with the Japanese government through JICA.

The Jordan Museum ... the storyteller of Jordan

The Jordan Museum is located in the dynamic new downtown area of Ras al-‘Ayn. Presenting the history and cultural heritage of Jordan in a series of beautifully designed galleries, The Jordan Museum serves as a comprehensive national centre for learning and knowledge that reflects Jordan’s history and culture, and presents in an engaging yet educational way the Kingdom’s historic, antique and heritage property as part of the ongoing story of Jordan’s past, present, and future.


This concept is physically represented in the building’s exterior — rough and smooth stones suggest the past and present, glass the future.

Through state of the art storage and conservation practices; support of research and publications; exciting permanent and temporary exhibitions; challenging outreach programmes; and well thought out guest services, The Jordan Museum fulfills a dual role as a repository of knowledge and a centre for education, allowing it to help link Jordan with other cultures, and connecting communities within Jordan for thoughtful dialogues to help meet future challenges.

What We Do

The Jordan Museum aims to be a jumping off point for visitors to entice them to explore the cultural sites and cities in Jordan. As a museum and research center, The Jordan Museum intends to enable its guests to experience Jordanian culture and history in a lively contextual setting.

Permanent Exhibition Areas

The exhibition space encompasses much of The Jordan Museum’s 10,000 square meter building and covers 1.5 million years of Jordanian history and archaeology, starting from thePalaeolithic(Old Stone Age), linking to the present, and projecting into the future. Within three main Chronological Flow Galleries (Archaeology and History, Traditional Life, Modern Jordan), The Jordan Museum tells the ‘Story of Jordan’ both chronologically and thematically, utilizing graphics, over 2,000 artifacts on loan from the Department of Antiquities, and specially designed materials. The nine major themes elaborated on are the environment, food production and processing, visual art and architecture, cultural exchange and trade, politics and the military, communication and writing, industry, religion, and daily domestic life in Jordan throughout the ages.

Distributed among these galleries are One-to-One Theaters, thematic exhibitions that complement the chronological exhibition themes. These are the main interactive spaces in the museum that communicate Archaeology; Mining; Humans;Nomadism; Writing; Lighting; and Children of Jordan.

Other Exhibition Areas

In addition to the permanent galleries there are outdoor and temporary indoor exhibition areas. Here, on a rotating basis, the museum will offer the opportunity to explore themes in more depth usingtravellingexhibitions as well as in-house special exhibitions.

Makany

A specially planned space that contributes to our goals of education and learning. This is an inviting hands-on area devoted to teaching and learning, where children can express their creativity in projects and performing arts activities inspired by their museum visit.

Conservation Centre

An area supporting the physical sustainability of the objects of Jordan’s cultural heritage that combines cutting edge academic knowledge and facilities with practical experience and skills – a conservation center not just for Jordan, but the region.

Library

A facility including several thousand publications of largely donated materials that deal with archaeology, history, education, and museology. For the use of the museum’s staff and outside researchers.

Guest Services

The Jordan Museum will offer services to guests to enrich their visit, including a thematic gift and book shop, and a café. Spaces for private and cultural functions as well as for academic meetings and conferences are also available.
