The new ‘Monuments Officers’ prepare to protect art amid war
monu-1.jpg
The Army’s Monuments Officers in training at the National Museum of the United States Army at Fort Belvoir in Virginia on Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2022. The officers had limited time — and limited packing supplies — during a training exercise in which they had to log, pack and evacuate items from a museum. Greg Kahn/The New York Times.

by Matt Stevens

FORT BELVOIR, VA.- The Army Reserve officers worked with brisk efficiency. For much of the afternoon, they had meticulously documented and carefully packed cultural treasures from the Smithsonia museum in Pinelandia — a country that could soon be under siege. Their mission — to evacuate important items from the museum — was going well. But then an aloof, lunch-preoccupied security guard accidentally put his foot through a precious painting propped against a table. The room went silent. Then the museum’s collection manager had a conniption. The officers had a problem. “A failure of our forces to secure the artifacts while we were handling them,” Capt. Blake Ruehrwein, 40, of Rehoboth, Massachusetts, said afterward. Thankfully for the officers, it was all only a training exercise set in a fictional museum and country. The mishap, which appeared at least somewhat intentional, would help them learn to deal with crisis and keep their heads on a swivel, instructors later said. … More

Why Steve Jobs chose this designer’s turtlenecks The superbly original, gloriously weird B-52’s say farewell to the road The stories a painting can tell: The Nazis in Paris
why-1.jpg

The “A-POC Queen” ensemble, with gloves and bag, 1997, displayed as part of the Museum of Modern Art’s exhibit, “Items: Is Fashion Modern?” in New York, Sept. 26, 2017. Mark Wickens/The New York Times.

by Vanessa Friedman

NEW YORK, NY.- Little wonder, really, that Issey Miyake was Steve Jobs’ favorite designer. The man behind Jobs’ personal uniform of black mock turtlenecks, who died Aug. 5 at age 84, was a pioneer in all sorts of ways — the first foreign designer to show at Paris Fashion Week (in April 1974), among the first designers to collaborate with artists and a proponent of “comfort dressing” long before the term ever existed. But it was his understanding and appreciation of technology and how it could be harnessed to an aesthetic point of view to create new, seductive utilities that set Miyake apart. Before there were wearables, before there were connected jackets, before there were 3D-printed sneakers and laser-cut lace, there was Miyake, pushing the boundaries of material innovation to bridge past and future. He was the original champion of fashion tech. It began in 1988 with Miyake’s research into the heat press, and how it could … More

by Rob Tannenbaum

NEW YORK, NY.- When the B-52’s played “Rock Lobster” on “Saturday Night Live” in January 1980, a few months after releasing their debut album, it was a lightning-strike moment for a generation of young misfits and oddballs. The band’s uninhibited dancing, statuesque wigs and absurdist lyrics embraced the ecstatic, and its kinetically rhythmic guitar, precise drumming and bursts of Farfisa organ ensured a good time. Many of their campy, catchy songs celebrated people who seemed to be happily dislocated or disconnected from known dimensions (“Planet Claire,” “Private Idaho”). Several of the band’s members were queer and all five considered themselves “freaks.” Over a period of decades, as they grew from a cult band to one with Top 40 hits — most notably “Love Shack” in 1989 — they discovered how many others identified the same way. “This eccentric, downright lovable quintet,” John Rockwell of The … More

James Northcote, Portrait of Master Semon with a Spaniel, signed by James Northcote, inscribed and dated on the chest in the lower left Alex r. Semon born in London April. 5. 1791 . and drawn July . 5 . 1796. Oil on canvas, 44 ¼ x 34 7/8 inches (112.8 x 89 cm.).

NEW YORK, NY.- As a viewer, we often look at the subject of a painting to engage us. Maybe we look at the technique in which the paint is applied by the artist, the use of color or brush strokes. Sometimes the life of the artist becomes a particularly intriguing point, but occasionally one comes across a picture in which the life of the painting itself exceeds that of the artist, subject or style. This is one of those paintings. James Northcote was known as a painter of portraits and in particular excelled at children’s portraits. He also painted historical, genre and animal scenes. In 1771 he came to London from Plymouth and entered the Royal Academy Schools. He worked as an assistant to Joshua Reynolds from 1771 – 1775. From 1777 – 1780 he was in Rome studying where he formed a deep appreciation for Correggio, the Italian Mannerists and the Roman Baroque. By 1781 he had permanently settled in London and had become a Royal Academician by 1787, painting … More

LONDON.- Albano Hérnandez (b.1988) Ávila, Spain, lives and works in Cambridge, UK. Graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2022 (MA Painting) holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid, UCM. The Basil H. Alkazzi Scholarship Award sponsored his studies at RCA, where he got a distinction and won the Hine Painting Prize 2022. In 2012 Albano won the BMW Painting Prize and the Obra Abierta Award three years later. Emanating from pictorial thoughts and based mainly on ceramic works, my practice has a transcategorical condition. My day-to-day is a constant game of dichotomies where a labour- intensive practice is mixed with industrial processes, undoing is as important as making, and impurity is as substantial as purity. In these processes, I follow a circular economy policy that allows me to reduce the amount of waste generated, establish dialogues between different works, and generate … More

LOS ANGELES, CA.- David Kordansky Gallery announced the representation of the estate of Betty Woodman, which is stewarded by the Woodman Family Foundation. This new chapter in the gallery’s relationship with Woodman and her work, which began in 2014, launches with a major solo exhibition at its New York location that will open on October 28, 2022. Betty Woodman (1930–2018) is recognized not only as one of the most important artists to work in ceramics—and one of those most responsible for its inclusion in contemporary art historical discourse—but also as an iconoclastic figure whose advances in several mediums made her a major voice in postwar American art. She transformed the functional history of clay into a point of departure, engaging in bold formal experiments in which she acknowledged the central role of the vessel even as she deconstructed, reassembled, and expanded … More

In an undated image provided by Charlie Woodrow, a specimen of Prophalangopsis obscura, a descendant of a singing insect from the Jurassic Period. Charlie Woodrow via The New York Times.

NEW YORK, NY.- Whether it’s a cicada’s earsplitting drone, a bee’s blaring buzz or a cricket’s incessant chirp, insects are a staple of summer’s score. And arthropods have been making a racket for hundreds of millions of years. One of the noisier groups has been the Prophalangopsidae, a suite of singing insects that went mainstream during the Jurassic period when some 100 species clamored about. While related to modern crickets and katydids, these ancient arthropods left few direct descendants, making it difficult to decipher what these Mesozoic maestros sounded like. However, a one-of-a-kind specimen of Prophalangopsis obscura may help replay these lost sounds. The most enigmatic of the eight modern Prophalangopsid descendants, P. obscura has never been observed singing in the wild and is known solely from a single specimen discovered … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Nicola Vassell Gallery announced the representation of Alteronce Gumby, a contemporary abstract artist known for his vivid interstellar paintings that emerge from his profound fascination with the cosmos and theories of energy. His prismatic fields add new perspectives to the history of abstract painting by proposing deliberate connections between color, society and the universe. His solo exhibition with the gallery will open this September. Alteronce’s desire to interpret unknown territory is enhanced by his query into how societal conditions impact life on our planet. His practice serves as a portal into untouched worlds. It is in this context that Alteronce develops his extraterrestrial vistas. The physical and aesthetic properties of material, as well as its conceptual implication, inform Alteronce’s practice. His use of resin’s performative … More

DUBLIN.- In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, citizens around the world were asked to stay at home for the safety of themselves and others. But these stay-at-home orders served as a stark reminder that the domestic space continues to be the most dangerous place for a women, where countless victims are exposed to high risks of violence. Recent setbacks to women’s health reveal an international legislative onslaught that is jeopardizing women’s freedoms and protection of bodily autonomy. Our freedoms cannot be taken for granted.

BOULDER, CO.- Artist Claire Ashley’s vibrant inflatables will devour BMoCA’s Present Box from the inside out, occupying the space like an invasive but beautiful weed. On view August 11–28, her site-specific installation Plump, Pucker, Squish invites viewers to experience the joy, humor, and downright absurdity in her work. Ashley blurs the lines between painting, sculpture, installation, and performance. She covers her monumentally scaled inflatables in abstract painting in an exhaustive palette of neon hues. Her acidic, bold colors reference pop culture and greet the viewer with an infectious sense of joy that cannot be ignored. Working on PVC-coated ripstop nylon, Ashley creates amorphous, undefinable forms that feel recognizable yet uncannily abstract. The works on view will fill every nook and cranny of the museum’s lobby and front entrance … More

A nude figure from Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” (1907) has been rendered in three dimensions as a coat rack. The anamorphic skull image in Hans Holbein’s “The Ambassadors” (1533) forms the surface of a coffee table. And amid it all sits a large animatronic puppet: a scruffy, gray pothead rabbit named Ollie.

rr-1.jpgKing Henry VIII signed document sponsoring the feast day of St. George sold for $66,435 at auction
BOSTON, MASS.- A King Henry VIII signed document discussing sponsoring the feast day of St. George sold for $66,435 according to Boston-based RR Auction. The one-page vellum manuscript signed “Henry R,” is dated July 26, 1536. The document by which King Henry VIII orders the treasurer and chamberlain to pay Edmund Peckham, accountant of the Royal House, the sum of nineteen pounds and thirteen shillings to cover the expenses of the feast held on the occasion of the solemnity of St. George, patron saint of England. St. George’s Day was a major feast and national holiday in England on a par with Christmas from the early 15th century through the 17th century, but its popularity as a tradition waned by the end of the 18th century after the union of England and Scotland. “King Henry VIII’s autograph is rare and highly sought in any … More

thea-1.jpgWhat to do with an absent father? Cast him as a character onstage.
NEW YORK, NY.- Brooklyn-based experimental-theater maker Aya Ogawa hadn’t thought about her father in 10 years. When that fact occurred to her, in 2017 — a decade after his death, which she and her mother had chosen not to mark with a funeral, or even an obituary in the local newspaper in his California town — she didn’t feel guilty about it. It seemed indicative of the remoteness of their relationship, and how painful it had been for her. Yet, Ogawa, then in the midst of creating a show called “Failure Sandwich,” did think she had failed somehow as a daughter to him. “He would have wanted to be memorialized,” Ogawa, 48, said one afternoon last week, sitting casually barefoot on the floor of a rehearsal studio upstairs at Lincoln Center Theater. “He would have wanted to be celebrated and acknowledged and all that stuff.” It was too … More

frank-1.jpgFrank Miller sues Widow of comics magazine editor for the return of artworks
NEW YORK, NY.- Comic writer and artist Frank Miller is suing the widow and the estate of a comics magazine founder over two pieces of promotional art he created that she was trying to sell at auction. The art, which appeared on covers of David Anthony Kraft’s magazine Comics Interview in the 1980s, includes an early depiction of Batman and a female Robin — from the 1986 “The Dark Knight Returns” series — and is potentially a valuable collectible. The lawsuit seeks the return of the Batman piece, which was used on the cover of Comics Interview No. 31 in 1986, as well as art depicting the title character of Miller’s 1983 “Ronin” series. He had sent both to Kraft for his use in the publication; the Ronin artwork was used as the cover of Comics Interview No. 2 in 1983. Miller contended in the court papers that he and Kraft agreed they were on loan, citing … More

rock-1.jpgLarge-scale steel sculpture by Vermont-based artist David Stromeyer installed at Shelburne Museum
SHELBURNE, VT.- This week, Shelburne Museum installed its newest permanent collection acquisition, Faceted Rock, by Vermont-based sculptor David Stromeyer. This large-scale steel sculpture has a prominent place on the museum’s grounds near the Meeting House building and joins the museum’s outdoor sculpture collection. For more than five decades, Stromeyer has created sculptures whose graphic forms, saturated colors, and complex, balanced compositions seem to defy steel’s material limits. Despite the weight of their materials and construction—including welded, cold bent, half-ton steel plates—many of Stromeyer’s sculptures play with space and perception; they seem to defy gravity, appearing to float and extend upwards effortlessly in the landscape” “We are honored to add this stunning monumental work by David Stromeyer … More

On a day like today, American painter and graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat died
N_2022-08-12-flashback-e217e63c-da1e.jpg
August 12, 1988. Jean-Michel Basquiat (December 22, 1960 – August 12, 1988) was an American artist. He began as an obscure graffiti artist in New York City in the late 1970s and evolved into an acclaimed Neo-expressionist and Primitivist painter by the 1980s. In this image: At “Jean-Michael Basquiat: King Pleasure,” works by the artist and personal effects including his books and trench coat, at the Starrett-Lehigh Building in Manhattan, April 4, 2022.

For Black artists, the great migration is an unfinished journey
mig-1.jpg
Mark Bradford’s 2022 mural-size text piece, “500,” which comprises 60 versions of a 1913 advertisement recruiting Black families to settle in a colony in New Mexico named Blackdom, is included in the exhibition “A Movement in Every Direction: Legacies of the Great Migration” at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson, Miss. on Aug. 2, 2022. The group exhibition explores the personal legacy of the era-shaping movement from the rural South. Imani Khayyam/The New York Times.

by Holland Cotter

JACKSON, MISS.- Midday, midweek, in mid-90 degrees midsummer, the streets of a downtown historic district of this Southern capital are all but empty. They’re like a film set, perfect in period detail but past use and abandoned. A patch of sidewalk embedded with the mosaicked words “Bon-Ton Café” marks the spot of what was, a century ago, Jackson’s toniest restaurant. In the nearby King Edward Hotel, built as the Edwards Hotel in 1923 for travel swells, later a gathering spot for blues musicians, then derelict until a recent revamp, foot traffic is sparse. Across from it, trains regularly rumble into a Georgian Revival-style Union Station, but few passengers disembark or board. Decades ago, transcontinental trains and buses leaving the old art deco Greyhound depot a few blocks away did brisk business. And some of that business came from carrying Black Jacksonians northward, eastward and westward, out of a repressive and dangerous Jim Crow South, to what they hoped would be a safer a … More

Bildmuseet in Sweden opened the doors to a rich presentation of Nancy Holt’s innovative art. The exhibition Nancy Holt / Inside Outside presents works from 1967 to 1992 and occupies five floors of the art museum. This is the artist’s first major retrospective in Europe and the most ambitious exhibition of her work to date. An innovator of site-specific installation and the moving image, Nancy Holt (1938-2014) expanded the places where art could be found, embracing the new media of her time.

by Robin Pogrebin

NEW YORK, NY.- Max Hollein, director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, will add the title of CEO, the museum’s board announced Wednesday, giving him full control of one of the world’s largest museums. Hollein will take on that new role upon the departure of Daniel H. Weiss, the Met’s president and CEO, who last month announced that he would step down in June 2023. (Weiss has been president of the Met since 2015 and president and CEO since 2017.) “Max has done a great job during his tenure” as director, Candace K. Beinecke, one of the museum’s two board chairs, said in a telephone interview. “He has inspired enormous confidence as a future leader.” The move returns the museum to its single chief management structure, one from which it has departed over the years. The Met’s current two-pronged leadership structure, … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Since the start of the pandemic, only during summer months, the West Harlem Art Fund hosts a residency with artists from NYC and around the country on Governors Island. Visual Muze is a unique storytelling residency and retreat. It provides visual artists, performance artists, multi-media designers, and writers the opportunity to explore narrative forms within collaborative projects, works in progress, guest lectures, and crafts. Participants can choose to work independently or in teams to create original works in print, film, public performance, or digitally for a culminating exhibition. Process, creative strategy, and inspiration is emphasized. Beginning this Saturday on August 6th, Brooklyn-based artist Tanika Williams will present her site specific installation Intrinsic Ecologies and short dance film (construct)Clearing in Nolan Park at Building 10B (NP/10) where West Harlem Art Fund resides on Governors Island. … More

For more than 60 years, Storm King’s vision of art in nature has inspired visitors and artists alike. The $45 million capital project represents a significant commitment to creatively improve and preserve the Art Center’s 500-acre site, securing its unique landscape for decades to come.

The Indra and Harry Banga Gallery presents “Hunters, Warriors, Spirits: Nomadic Art of North China” Two-part official charity sale of 60 lots celebrates 60 years of James Bond Veteran artist-respected Lalitha Lajmi works offered at Prinseps Auction house
cityu-1.jpg

Installation view.

HONG KONG.- The Indra and Harry Banga Gallery of the City University of Hong Kong is presenting the new exhibition “Hunters, Warriors, Spirits: Nomadic Art of North China” from July 23rd through October 23rd, 2022. Chinese history and the history of Eurasia cannot be understood without looking at the central role played by the nomads. The history of sedentary states from China to Central Europe has been moulded in large measure by the ebb and flow of their relationships with the nomads, sometimes with one in the ascendancy and sometimes the other. North China generally refers to the territory inhabited by the indigenous groups commonly known under the umbrella term “Hu” in Chinese annals, which includes the Xiongnu, Xianbei, Rouran and the last hunters of China’s northern forest, the Orochen. Presented through over two hundred and fifty art objects, this exhibition tells the story of … More

MUMBAI.- Prinseps announces the auction of veteran artist Lalitha Lajmi’s prints on 10th August 2022. The 65-lot auction navigates the themes of death, performance, and the complexities of human relationships. The Lalitha Lajmi Prints auction will be open for live bidding on 10th August 2022, 10 am, and closes on 11th August, 7 pm onwards. Lalitha Lajmi (b. 1932) is a veteran printmaker and artist who continues to paint in her Lokhandwala home at the age of 89. Her creative oeuvre traverses over five decades (and counting) and includes etching and printmaking, pen and ink drawings, oil colour, and watercolour paintings. This auction covers Lajmi’s work from the 1960s to the 1980s, demonstrating elements of an autobiographical narrative with a continuous presence of psychoanalysis. Born into … More

RENO, NEV.- An extremely rare early U.S. 12-cent postage stamp with a portrait bust of George Washington sold for $19,520 and the 1860 U.S. Army Colt revolver with a Richards conversion that once belonged to legendary lawman and gunfighter Elfego Baca (1865-1945) hit the mark for $13,750 at Holabird Western Americana Collections’ Wild West Auction held July 21st-24th. The auction, which was a huge success by any measure and saw new record prices established in numerous collecting categories, was held online and live at Holabird’s gallery in Reno. It was headlined by the collections of Gary Bracken, who collected in a staggering 60-plus categories; and James and Barbara Sherman, whose huge collections were housed in a museum in Tucson.

SAO PAULO.- Nara Roeslerannounced the representation of Thiago Barbalho (Natal, Brazil, 1984). Having been based in São Paulo for over a decade, Barbalho has stood out from within the contemporary scene for his large drawings that weave intricate visual universes filled with figures from cartoons, book illustrations, artifacts from popular Northeastern culture, and also references from contemporary culture such as brand logos and product packaging, which take up the entire length of the paper in vibrant colors. Barbalho’s work is marked by an abundance of shapes and materials, including graphite, colored pencils, ballpoint pen, permanent marker and acrylic, oil and pastel paints. The interest in the plurality of shapes and textures began with the artist’s experiments with paint brush software. The possibility of getting closer or further away from the image, with the zoom in and zoom out tools, paved the way for the artist … More

SHANGHAI.- From July 8 to September 4, 2022, UCCA Edgepresents The Stutter of History, the first comprehensive survey of work by Thomas Demand (b. 1964, Munich, lives and works in Berlin and Los Angeles) in China. Capturing the uncanny intersections of history, images, and archtectonic forms, the exhibition features over 70 photographs, films, and wallpapers that span the arc of the artist’s career, and focuses on four important areas of his work: large-scale photographs depicting seemingly banal yet historically significant scenarios reconstructed from news images or other sources; “Dailies” based on images taken on his phone; photographic studies of paper models from other creative disciplines in “Model Studies”; and his moving image work. The exhibition is curated by Douglas Fogle for the non-profit organization the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography and is organized at UCCA Edge by Ara Qiu, Mason Zha, Zh … More

On temporary loan to Museo Picasso Málaga © FABA Photo: Hugard & Vanoverschelde Photography © Sucesión Pablo Picasso, VEGAP, Madrid, 2022.

MALAGA.- In the spring of 1914, Pablo Picasso made a series of six bronzes depicting an absinthe glass. Cast from the same wax maquette, they are identical in shape but each bronze is painted differently. These six versions of the Glass of Absinthe are perhaps the most interesting example of Picasso’s cubist polychrome sculpture. In his Cubist paintings, Picasso often used different colours to create variations on the same underlying composition. However, this was the first time he created a series of variations in the medium of sculpture. Each of the six bronzes is a unique work, with different areas highlighted by colour, pattern and texture. Absinthe, or La Fée verte (the Green Fairy), was a favourite drink in bohemian Paris. Flavoured with wormwood and other herbs, it was believed to cause … More

shutting-1.jpgShutting the door on the hard-knock life
NEW YORK, NY.- Getting to play Cinderella in a Broadway revival of “Into the Woods” sounds like a young musical theater performer’s dream, until you break your neck doing the pratfalls built into the role. That’s what Laura Benanti says happened to her in 2002. “I was a 22-year-old girl who didn’t know how to say ‘this doesn’t feel safe to me,’” she wrote on her Instagram page nearly two decades later, after suffering “intense pain every single day for seven years,” two surgeries and much heartbreak. At the time, people bad-mouthed her for missing performances. Disastrous tumbles and physical danger are so much a part of theater history that they’ve become treasured backstage lore instead of causes for concern. I am ashamed to admit to laughing when I read about the dancer who fell into the “Anyone Can Whistle” orchestra pit in 1964, landing on … More

brighton-1.jpgOpening this weekend: Bill Lynch’s first UK institutional show at Brighton CCA
BRIGHTON.- Largely overlooked in his lifetime, Bill Lynch was a painter of exceptional power and talent, whose work ranging across time and cultures continues to speak to us about the power of the past in the present moment. Assessing Lynch’s work in the New York Times in 2014, critic Roberta Smith wrote ‘Genius lands where genius will, and I’m pretty sure some alighted on Bill Lynch.’ The exhibition takes place from 6 August to 15 October. The title is a reference to the Greek god of wine, parties, theatre, harvest, madness and ecstasy. As a young man Lynch arrived to study at Cooper Union in New York around 1978. Described by his friend the artist Verne Dawson, ‘he radiated a physical energy that was incandescent … of the Sufi bent – intoxication, whirling, playing the fiddle all in the service of connecting with the oneness of spirit and matter.’ Lynch … More

mcaus-1.jpgMCA Australia launches C3West 2022 Being Together: Parramatta Yearbook by Artist Cherine Fahd
SYDNEY.- The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia in partnership with Parramatta Artists’ Studios have launched this year’s C3West project Being Together: Parramatta Yearbook. Presented in Parramatta’s Centenary Square, this large-scale photographic installation runs until 3 October. In 2022, C3West artist Cherine Fahd celebrates Parramatta and its people through photography and performance. Being Together: Parramatta Yearbook uses the common experience of group portraiture and school photography to create moments that reflect Parramatta’s diverse communities during a period of unprecedented urban development and in a time when city’s streets and spaces have sprung back with activity in the post-lockdown period. Between November 2021 and July 2022, Fahd made portraits of people at various locations in Parramatta’s CBD. Setting … More

Jeff will stay on in the role of Creative Consultant to oversee his curated program for the forthcoming 2022 edition of the Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art which returns to its home at Carriageworks from 20-30 October. Jeff Khan said, “It is with much sadness, but also with great pride, that I take my leave of Performance Space after over a decade.

Paul, who has worked at Shakespeare Theater Company since 2007, will succeed Julianne Boyd, the Barrington Stage Company’s co-founder, who is retiring at the end of the 2022 season after leading the company for 27 years.

geffen-1.jpgTheater at Geffen Hall to be named for two key donors
NEW YORK, NY.- In late 2020, as coronavirus infections surged and cultural institutions shuttered, the fate of the long-delayed renovation of David Geffen Hall, home of the New York Philharmonic, was uncertain. Then came a $50 million gift from Joseph Tsai, a Taiwanese-born billionaire and co-founder of the Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group, and his wife, Clara Wu Tsai, a philanthropist. The donation moved the project forward, accelerating construction so the hall could reopen in October, a year and a half ahead of schedule. In a nod to the role of the Tsai family, Lincoln Center and the Philharmonic announced on Wednesday that the main auditorium in the hall would be named the Wu Tsai Theater. “It really took courage,” Katherine Farley, chair of Lincoln Center’s board, said of the gift in an interview. “And that courage inspired other people, … More

rev-1.jpgReview: Black Grace dances out a different kind of buzz
NEW YORK, NY.- I was expecting an energy boost, and then some. But Black Grace, a celebrated company from New Zealand known for dazzling, fast dancing, returned to the Joyce Theater with “a different kind of buzz,” as the Lorde song “Royals,” quoted in the first dance of the evening, puts it. Was it contemplative? Was it intimate? In any event, for much of the program, modern dance struggled to hold its own against traditional movement drawn from the South Pacific. And vice versa. Led by its affable artistic director and founder, Neil Ieremia, who delivered speeches from the stage, the ensemble was formed in 1995 and is admired for blending traditional and contemporary dance. But Ieremia, who was born in Wellington and is of Samoan descent, is perhaps most clearly a fan of a particular modern dance classic: Paul Taylor’s “Esplanade.” … More

law-1.jpgGeorge Bartenieff, fixture of downtown theater, dies at 89
NEW YORK, NY.- George Bartenieff, an actor and producer who was a significant figure in the off-off-Broadway and experimental theater world as a founder of two theater groups, died July 30 at his home in Brooklyn, New York. He was 89. His wife, playwright Karen Malpede, said the cause was the cumulative effects of several advanced illnesses. Bartenieff had credentials that might have led to a mainstream acting career. He was on Broadway before he was 15 and in the 1960s appeared there in plays by Edward Albee and John Guare. His smattering of film and television credits suggest that he could have made a character-actor’s career just out of playing a judge or a doctor on series like “Law & Order.” But he much preferred to be involved in the kinds of socially conscious, form-bending plays staged in downtown Manhattan and, sometimes, … More

dan-1.jpgDan Smith might teach you guitar
NEW YORK, NY.- For three decades, Dan Smith has been making a solemn promise to New Yorkers. He has posted his flier — “Dan Smith Will Teach You Guitar” — thousands of times in the city’s bodegas, coffee shops, pizza parlors, delis and laundromats. Parodied by Jon Stewart and guitar god John Mayer, Smith has reached local legend status alongside the likes of Cellino & Barnes, Dr. Zizmor and Keano. There have been at least 60 versions of the sign, and most have included a photo of a seemingly ageless, sinewy and smiley Smith posing with his instrument. But spotting one in the urban wild may soon become a rarity, because New York’s go-to guitar teacher is doing less of his vintage style of promotion and embracing a more 2022 approach. Three months ago, Smith, 51, started a YouTube channel, where he has posted short instructional videos … More

rz-1.jpgRzewski for lovers? A pianist mines a prickly modernist’s gentler side
NEW YORK, NY.- Renowned composer and pianist Frederic Rzewski, who died last year, was celebrated for the committed nature of his leftist politics as well as his music. On the political front, he tended to walk the walk — whether writing a series of variations based on a Chilean workers’ anthem (in “The People United Will Never Be Defeated”), or undermining the high-toned trappings of contemporary classical culture by playing at a fish market. He also distributed his scores online, free for any player to peruse. He could also be harsh and exacting in his artistic judgments. But one thing Rzewski wasn’t known for were capital-R Romantic gestures. So when pianist Lisa Moore introduced one of Rzewski’s final pieces at a Bang on the Can festival at Mass MoCA last year, murmurs of surprise were audible in the crowd as she related … More

(Estimate: $40,000+) A handwritten poem by Vincent van Gogh, the extraordinary one-page manuscript by Vincent Van Gogh, is unsigned with no date but circa late 1876. Van Gogh, an avid … More

August 05, 1877. Thomas John “Tom” Thomson (August 5, 1877 – July 8, 1917) was an influential Canadian artist of the early 20th century. He directly influenced a group of Canadian painters that would come to be known as the Group of Seven, and though he died before they formally formed, he is sometimes incorrectly credited as being a member of the group itself. Thomson died under mysterious circumstances, which added to his mystique. In this image: This newly discovered Tom Thomson oil on board recently sold for $126,500.

by Zach Zorich

NEW YORK, NY.- Archaeologists working at Red Bank Battlefield, a site along the Delaware River south of Philadelphia, have uncovered the remains of 13 Hessian mercenaries who were killed during a bloody Revolutionary War battle. The remains were found in a former trench that was part of the defenses of Fort Mercer, where 500 American patriots were stationed to prevent British ships from supplying troops in the city. On Oct. 22, 1777, a contingent of 2,000 Hessian soldiers fighting for the British set out to overwhelm the small force, but the day ended in a resounding defeat, with 377 Hessians killed but only 14 American casualties. “Finding bone, finding Hessians was not on my radar,” said Jennifer Janofsky, a historian at Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey, and the director of Red Bank Battlefield Park. “We have documentation from that period showing where mass graves are. This was not on the map.” Genetic studies are being conducted on the remains, which include isolated … More

NASHVILLE, TENN.- Cheekwood Estate & Gardens continues to grow its contemporary outdoor sculpture collection with the acquisition of Untitled (4×8) from internationally recognized, Brooklyn-based artist Virginia Overton. Overton was born in Nashville in 1971 and maintains strong connections to Middle Tennessee, where her family has owned a farm for more than a century. Untitled (4×8) has been exhibited around the world with two earlier versions in European and American private collections. The third version of the series has been fabricated specifically for Cheekwood and will be permanently installed on The Ann & Monroe Carrell Jr. Family Sculpture Trail, the second addition since the trail’s major renovation and reopening in 2020. Untitled (4×8) will debut on Oct. 8 in conjunction with the Frist Art Museum’s exhibition … More

Carl Richard Söderström: Dancing Bear, 2021. Black stoneware, glazed. NMK 57/2022. Photo: Linn Ahlgren/Nationalmuseum.

STOCKHOLM.- Nationalmuseum has acquired a ceramic sculpture of a bear by Carl Richard Söderström. In the piece, titled Dancing Bear, the artist reasserted his mastery of colour and reconnected with his background as a painter. The sculpture follows in a long tradition of animal portraits in Swedish ceramic art. Earlier ceramic sculptures by Carl Richard Söderström (born 1960) were monochrome black or white. He explored the structure of clay and form by creating organic outgrowths with stripes or cavities. In Dancing Bear (2021), he believes he reasserted his mastery of colour and reconnected with his background as a painter, which is why he regards this as a key work in his oeuvre. The sculpture stands 70 centimetres high and is crafted from black stoneware clay. It was fired three times at high temperatures with multiple layers of thick glazes, followed by two firings … More

The exhibition focuses on his new glass sculptures entitled Relax – bookends shown for the first time – consisting of two glass bricks placed at right angles to each other consisting of two glass bricks placed at right angles to each other and an organic, almost ornamental form on top. Embedded in his unique visual language, the sculptures, created in Murano, repeat two frequent motifs in the artist’s work, combining an everyday object with a seemingly banal curved shape into something unusually harmonious. The sausage-like forms appear in an almost relaxed posture that reflects the title of the new body of work and the theme of the exhibition. The simplicity of the works, the unique combination of rough and smooth textures, dark and light colors, underscores Schulze’s interest in closely examining everyday life through idiosyncra … More

SYDNEY.- Jeremy Eden has been announced as the winner of the Archibald Prize 2022 ANZ People’s Choice award for his portrait of Gold Logie award-winning actor and cancer charity campaigner Samuel Johnson OAM. The artist and his sitter bonded over their shared experience of losing close family members to cancer – Eden’s mother and Johnson’s sister – and the portrait captures both of their stories. Sydney-based Eden first met Johnson, who is based in Victoria, over video in 2021 while the actor was recovering from a near-fatal car accident. Eden then flew to Melbourne for a live sitting with Johnson, before returning to Sydney where he painted for up to six hours a day for 10 weeks to complete the portrait. Johnson, who founded the cancer research charity Love Your Sister with his late sister Connie before she passed away in 2017, encouraged Eden to also include his own story … More

Mary Obering. Portrait by Mark Hartman.

NEW YORK, NY.- Bortolami announce the passing of Mary Obering, who died on July 29th in New York. Throughout her prolific career, Obering brought profound innovation to minimalist painting, marrying her interest in Renaissance Art with abstraction. The artist ushered in unexpected materials, including gold leaf and egg tempera, to balanced compositions inspired by her interest in science and the landscape tradition. Born in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1937 to Harvey and Marjorie McLean, Obering studied experimental psychology at Harvard under B.F. Skinner, and received an MFA at the University of Denver, before relocating to New York City in 1971, at the behest of her close friend Carl Andre. Within the years after her move to New York, she would present a solo exhibition at Artists Space (1973), curated by Andre, and her paintings in the second ever Whitney Biennial (1975). Obering remained in New York throughout her life, eventually splitt … More

by Grayson Haver Currin

NEW YORK, NY.- When DaShawn Hickman was 4 years old, living just 32 steps from the tiny granite House of God church in Mount Airy, North Carolina, he picked up a lap steel his uncle had built for his mother. Stretching the electric guitar across his tiny knees for the first time, using a D-cell battery as his slide, he traced the hymns his mother sang. Hickman soon graduated to the pedal steel, the lap steel’s Byzantine successor, with as many as 24 strings controlled not only with two hands but also with both feet and knees. A quick study, Hickman was 13 when he began leading services at House of God with his steel/strings, the centerpiece of a century-old style of Black gospel called sacred steel. … More

MIAMI, FL.- Pérez Art Museum Miamiwill open a major solo exhibition featuring artworks by Cuban artist Mariano Rodríguez for the first time in the United States, opening on August 5, 2022. The exhibition includes works from across six decades of the artist’s career, featuring paintings, watercolors, and drawings on loan from leading private and institutional collections, including the artist’s estate, which has provided unprecedented access to rare works and archival material. The artist, widely known simply as “Mariano,” is regarded as one of the most important and influential painters of the segunda vanguardia. The second generation of Cuban modernists (1938-50) used their work to construct and express their vision of Cuban national identity. Rural life, the quotidian and Afro-Cuban culture served as inspiration for that identity as demonstrated in this exhibition. While best … More

CAPE TOWN.- Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa announces a riveting site-specific commission of monumental scale by Malagasy artist Joël Andrianomearisoa titled The Five Continents of All Our Desires. The installation is supported by Fonds Yavarhoussen, Madagascar, and will be on view from 2 August 2022 to 25 June 2023 in the museum’s atrium. Andrianomearisoa’s practice encompasses working in multidisciplinary ways — with materiality and scale as important considerations. Imbued with complex emotional experiences, his delicate, often ambiguous works are an ongoing series of ever-evolving exercises that consider the aesthetic and architecture of feelings that all perceive yet cannot put a name to. Zeitz MOCAA Executive Director and Chief Curator Koyo Kouoh says: “It is a revelation and honour to host an artwork of this scale and ambition in our museum. The generosity and intentionality with which Joël approached this … More

MELBOURNE.- The ants are in the idiom is a presentation of newly commissioned work by Australian-born, London-based artist Susan Jacobs. A meditation on the relationship between language and matter, the exhibition is an expansive sculptural environment that draws the viewer into a web of visual riddles. Jacobs’ poetic approach to materials is underpinned by research into systems of thought that have shaped—and mis-shaped—human knowledge. Playful allusions to science, psychology and mythology jostle with visual puns and word games. Enlivened by the imaginative potential of misinterpretation, the exhibition is a rhizomatic sculptural network that stimulates a process of associative looking in the viewer. The artist has developed this work over several years, experimenting with materials in her studio to articulate a sculptural language informed by cumulative layers … More

eli-1.jpgEli N. Evans, who wrote about Jews in the American south, dies at 85
NEW YORK, NY.- Eli N. Evans, a courtly Carolina Tarheel who rose to the upper ranks of the New York philanthropic world, but who left his biggest mark as the author of three books exploring the culture and history of Jews in the American South, including his own family, died July 26 in New York City’s Manhattan borough. He was 85. The death, in a hospital, was confirmed by his son and sole survivor, Joshua Evans, who said the cause was complications of COVID-19. With a law degree from Yale and a stint as a White House speechwriter, Eli Evans was part of a cohort of erudite Southern expatriates who landed on Manhattan’s literary scene in the 1950s and ’60s — many of whom, including Willie Morris, the Mississippi-born editor of Harper’s Magazine, became good friends of his. Like them, Evans, who worked at the Carnegie Corp. before becoming … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Bernard Marson, who as an architect and developer figured prominently in the transformation of a lower Manhattan industrial district into SoHo, an affordable neighborhood for artists to work and live before it evolved into an enclave of chic boutiques, celebrity bars and overpriced apartments, died July 9 at his home in Los Angeles. He was 91. His death was confirmed by his son, Alexander. “Mr. Marson was responsible almost single-handedly for the growth of New York City’s SoHo into an artist community and historic district,” Raquel Ramati, who headed the Urban Design Group in Mayor John Lindsay’s administration, said in recommending him for a fellowship with the American Institute of Architects. Marson was already a prominent architect in the late 1970s when he happened upon the South Houston Industrial District, a 50- … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Don’t call it the Black Sundance. Though it was dubbed that by Ebony magazine, the BlackStar Film Festival, now in its 11th year, is a cultural institution all its own. Sharing a similar focus on independent cinema with its Park City counterpart, BlackStar — kicking off Wednesday in Philadelphia with a slate of 77 features and shorts from all over the world — partly distinguishes itself from other festivals with its emphasis on work made exclusively by “Black, brown and Indigenous artists.” But as a regular of the festival, I’ve always been struck by its ambitious bridging of cultural specificity, social justice and the avant-garde, making it an exciting, expansive and revelatory cinematic experience. Founded by Maori Karmael Holmes in 2012, it was conceived as a one-off event to showcase Black films that hadn’t been screened in the Philadelphia … More

He was 95. The death was confirmed by his granddaughter Annabelle Ostin. “Between the early ’60s and the mid-’90s, under legendary record man Mo Ostin, no company was more successful at artist development — or operated with more sophistication,” the music industry trade publication Hits wrote in 2016. The list of artists signed to the constellation of affiliated Warner Bros. labels when they were guided by Ostin reads like a dream-world music hall of fame.
