Frankenstein’s Monster Edition

Here’s what we’re reading this morning…
Check out all of the latest art world headlines on ARTnews.com.
Bonjour, Paris
The art world has arrived in Paris for museum and gallery openings ahead of FIAC, the fair that opens later this week. A quick dive into the gallery previews can shed light on whether certain hot artists might have work at the fair—for instance, Victoria Miro has opted not to bring any work by MacArthur "Genius Grant" recipient Njideka Akunyili Crosby and Adrien Ghenie won’t be represented at any of his galleries’ booths. But David Zwirner is bringing work by Wolfgang Tillmans.
Artprice

Henry Taylor posted some pictures of himself installing work at the Blum & Poe booth at FIAC.
Instagram

Of the museum openings that are happening concurrently with the fair, perhaps the biggest is at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, which has a show of work on loan from New York’s MoMA, including several items that rarely if ever get loaned to other institutions.
The Financial Times

As for the galleries, the William Forsythe show at Gagosian Bourget, the megagallery’s hangar-sized space just outside of Paris, has a work called Black Flags (2015) in which two gigantic robots sway together in tandem for a 28-minute dance. It opened yesterday.

Scott Reyburn runs through what was selling in London during Frieze Week—during the auctions, gallery openings, and fairs—and looks ahead to the next month’s sales in New York. While details are still trickling out about the November sales, it seems the week’s big lot is going to be Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvatore Mundi, which is being offered at Christie’s and already has a third-party guarantee of $100 million.

Ai Weiwei in the Neighborhood
New Yorkers taking a walk this weekend to take advantage of the nice weather may have noticed some new things installed beside trees and buildings—new work by Ai Weiwei, part of a citywide public exhibition, "Good Fences Make Good Neighbors," that he staged through the Public Art Fund. Here’s a handy map of all the different venues.
The New York Post

Ai answered a few questions for Time, and admitted to being an illegal alien in New York after he finished school, but said that no one cared, even when he participated in the Tompkins Square Park Riots.
Time

And CBS News correspondent Rita Braver caught up with Ai inside Gilded Cage, which is installed in Central Park.

Alex Katz drew the cover art for New York magazine’s 50th anniversary issue, which hits newsstands today. The artist, who just turned 90, rode the subway uptown and then downtown drawing his fellow straphangers, just like he did when he was a student at Cooper Union in the 1940s.
New York

The new film from Noah Baumbach, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), focuses on sculptor Harold Meyerowitz, an artist who flirted with success decades earlier but has since been mostly forgotten, and his relationship with his two sons. There’s a scene that pretty accurately depicts an opening at MoMA, a peek into the storage facilities of the Whitney, and even some Ryan Trecartin-esque video art made by Meyerowitz’s granddaughter, who is a student at Bard.

As the Market Churns
How is the auction business changing? Ted Loos takes a look. Says Oliver Barker, chairman of Sotheby’s Europe: "Increasingly, I’m having to get used to a button flashing in front of me, which demonstrates that there is a client now trying to transact a bid over the internet—a major change."
The New York Times

Melanie Gerlis reports in her art-market column: "Crates containing art worth about $1.1 million have been reported stolen from the Johannesburg studio of South African artist Nicholas Hlobo."
Financial Times

Criticism
Jason Farago: Ai Weiwei "has endured frequent gripes that his activism has got the better of his art. I’ve always found that gripe to be unfounded."
The New York Times

Barbara Pollock on the Guggenheim’s "Art and China After 1989" exhibition: "This is a show worth seeing multiple times, with many artists overdue for recognition by American audiences."
