BASEL.- Camille Pissarro (1830–1903) ranks among the most distinguished artists of nineteenth-century France. A central figure in Impressionism, he exerted considerable influence over the movement’s evolution. Camille Pissarro. The Studio of Modernism at the Kunstmuseum Basel is the artist’s first retrospective in Switzerland in over six decades. It combines a comprehensive survey of Pissarro’s oeuvre with a spotlight on his collaborative practice and his key role in paving the way for modernism. The exhibition pays tribute to an artist whose achievements are too often overshadowed in histories of the art of the nineteenth century by those of his more prominent colleagues. Artists from several generations, some of whom went on to become leading modernists around the turn from the nineteenth to the twentieth century, trusted his counsel as a friend and mentor. The presentation sheds light on Pissarro’s sustained excha … More

Fondazione Antonio Dalle Nogare is exhibiting Charlotte Posenenske’s first show in Italy, curated by Vincenzo de Bellis. An internationally acclaimed artist and a figure central to the German minimalist movement, Charlotte Posenenske (1930-1985) worked mainly with sculpture, and received numerous accolades in Germany and from the international scene up until her decision, in 1968, to dedicate her life to sociology.

Twilight & Dawn 10_9, 2c, in situ.

NEW YORK, NY.- Garvey|Simon is presenting Select6, the sixth annual exhibition of work by emerging and mid-career artists chosen by director Elizabeth K. Garvey through the gallery’s innovative Review Program. This year’s artists are: Julia Whitney Barnes, Jimmy Fike, Anne Finkelstein, Jenifer Kent, Lori Larusso, Gwyneth Leech, Claire McConaughy, Debra Ramsay, Linda Schmidt, and Charles Yoder. Garvey|Simon established the Review Program in 2016 to open a dialogue between artists and galleries, a practice that has long been anathema to gallery orthodoxy. Neither the past practice of artists drowning galleries in heaps of slides nor today’s avalanche of emails is beneficial to either gallery or artist. Garvey believes that artists “need to have a working platform to engage with dealers who otherwise might not see their work.” In the multi-tiered program, artists must pay an … More

BOLZANO.- Fondazione Antonio Dalle Nogare is exhibiting Charlotte Posenenske’s first show in Italy, curated by Vincenzo de Bellis. An internationally acclaimed artist and a figure central to the German minimalist movement, Charlotte Posenenske (1930-1985) worked mainly with sculpture, and received numerous accolades in Germany and from the international scene up until her decision, in 1968, to dedicate her life to sociology. From B to E and More is Posenenske’s first retrospective in Italy, and it traces the evolution of this artist, who died prematurely, by concentrating on a series of works that were created in the span of a decade. In her early works on paper, present in the exhibition in a selection of 17 items, the artist already focused on the exploration of abstract space. International recognition arrived with the conception and exhibition of six … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Abstract geometric designs at Big Bend National Park in Texas that had survived for thousands of years were “irreparably damaged” by vandals who scratched names and dates into the prehistoric designs, the National Park Service said. The park service said on its website that the ancient rock art was damaged Dec. 26 in the Indian Head area of the park, which encompasses more than 800,000 acres in southwest Texas and stretches along 118 miles of the U.S. border with Mexico. Since 2015, archaeologists at the park have documented more than 50 instances of vandalism, the park service said. Damaging park resources … More

ATLANTA, GA.- Launched in 1996, the High Museum of Art’s renowned “Picturing the South” series supports contemporary photographers in creating new bodies of work inspired by the American South for the High’s collection, which is among the nation’s leading photography programs and has strength in work made in and about the region.

HONG KONG.- Ben Brown Fine Artsis presenting an exhibition at the Hong Kong gallery of Robert Indiana sculpture and paintings. Robert Indiana (1928-2018), one of the most influential and pioneering American artists since the 1960s, is celebrated for his unique contributions to the Pop art movement in which he embraced the power of language, colour and form, while harnessing the American identity and his own personal history, to produce one of the most iconic bodies of work of the 20th and 21st centuries. After studying at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Skowhegan School of Sculpture and Painting in Maine, and the Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland, Indiana moved to New York in the mid-1950s, where upon encountering Ellsworth Kelly joined a community of artists, including Kelly, Agnes Martin, … More


He composed the title song of the landmark album “Free to Be … You and Me.” He then moved on to Big Bird and friends.

by Neil Genzlinger

NEW YORK, NY.- Stephen Lawrence, who provided a soundtrack of sorts for countless childhoods as music director for the landmark “Free to Be … You and Me” album and television special and as a longtime composer for “Sesame Street,” died Dec. 30 at a medical center in Belleville, New Jersey. He was 82. His wife, Cathy (Merritt) Lawrence, said the cause was multiple organ failure. Lawrence had a gift for catchy tunes and song constructions that would appeal to young minds. “One of the most effective devices, and for children one of the most important, is repetition,” he wrote in “How to Compose Music for Children,” an essay on his blog. “Did you write a first line you like? Why not repeat it?” The essay went on to show how composers from Beethoven to John Lennon had done just that, and Lawrence employed the device … More

Sargent’s Daughters opens an exhibition of works by painter and interdisciplinary artist Cielo Felix-Hernandez Andrew Kreps Gallery opens its first exhibition with Raymond Saunders in New York Dwayne Hickman, TV’s lovelorn Dobie Gillis, dies at 87

Cielo Felix-Hernandez, (Autorretrato) La Pintora, 2021. Oil on canvas, hibiscus wash, 20 x 24 inches.

NEW YORK, NY.- Sargent’s Daughters is presenting nieta, the first New York solo presentation of Cielo Felix-Hernandez, a Brooklyn-based painter and interdisciplinary artist. Working primarily in oil paint, Felix-Hernandez draws on memory and aesthetics derived from cultural legacy to reflect her lived experience as a trans-femme Boricua. Her exuberant palette and detailed, referential compositions draw viewers in to a space of care, resilience, and joy. The roots of Felix-Hernandez’s paintings are autobiographical, referencing an upbringing caught between the island of Puerto Rico and the mainland of the United States. They contain traces of the past which express the artist’s diasporic roots, as well as those of her mother and grandmother. The exhibition’s title, nieta (granddaughter), serves to highlight the importance of generational ties, especially across geographical distance. For Felix-Hernandez, this familial wa … More


Raymond Saunders, Untitled. Mixed media on panel, 64 1/8 x 48 1/8 inches (163 x 122 cm.)

NEW YORK, NY.- Andrew Kreps Gallery is presenting the gallery’s first exhibition with Raymond Saunders in New York at 22 Cortlandt Alley. Spanning the 1980s to the present, the exhibition is Saunders’ first in New York in over twenty years and includes previously unexhibited works from the artist’s Paris Studio. Since the 1960s, Raymond Saunders has developed a singular practice defined by an improvisational approach, as he culls eclectic ephemera, signage, detritus, and other materials from his daily life which reflect his living environment. A cult-like figure in the Bay Area art scene, Saunders’ paintings and installation-based works are loaded with rich swaths of paint, interwoven with found materials and his own notational marks, and white-pencil drawings. Blackboard surfaces, left visible through a heavy accumulation of marks and material, tie Saunders’ works inextricably to his role as an educator, as he handwrites simple equat … More


He went on to appear in movies and other TV shows and to work as a television executive, but the role of Dobie would dog him for decades.

by Margalit Fox

NEW YORK, NY.- Dwayne Hickman, the affable, apple-cheeked actor whose starring role in the revered sitcom “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis” would dog him for more than a half-century, died Sunday in Los Angeles. He was 87. The cause was complications of Parkinson’s disease, a spokesperson for his family said. Broadcast on CBS from 1959 to 1963, “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis” was an essential ingredient of adolescence for the postwar generation and remained popular in syndication for years. Hickman became one of TV’s first teenage idols for his portrayal of its lovelorn hero, and he remained indelibly identified with the character ever after, a fate he bore with genial resignation. “Dobie Gillis” followed the fortunes of its hero, his friends and family in Central City, a community whose precise location … More

Quiet awards season has Hollywood uneasy The history and the art and the allure of a famous blue dye on show at Albuquerque Museum The South Street Seaport Museum opens ‘South Street and the Rise of New York’

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Steven Spielberg directing a dance-filled musical through the streets of New York. Lady Gaga channeling her Italian roots. Will Smith back on the big screen. This year’s award season was supposed to celebrate Hollywood’s return to glitz and glamour. No more masks, no more socially distanced award shows or Zoom acceptance speeches, no more rewarding films that very few people had seen. Now, between the omicron spike and NBC’s decision not to televise the Golden Globes on Sunday because of the ethical issues surrounding the group that hands out the awards, Hollywood’s traditionally frenetic — and hype-filled — first week of the calendar year has been reduced to a whisper. The AFI Awards were postponed. The … More

ALBUQUERQUE, NM.- Albuquerque Museum is presenting Indelible Blue: Indigo Across the Globe. The exhibition opened at Albuquerque Museum on January 8, 2022. Indelible Blue explores the history, techniques, and movement of indigo, tracing the different varieties of plants back to the regions and cultures that have utilized this elusive dye for millennia. Indelible Blue features artists from around the world currently working with indigo as well as historical objects from Asia, South Asia, Africa, The Americas, and New Mexico. The exhibition considers how artists are reflecting on the cultural and geographical significance of the color blue and traditional ways of dyeing as well as contemplating the social and cultural narratives that impact the present and the future. The chemical compound (indican) required to produce indigo dye … More

derek-1.jpgDerek Eller Gallery opens a solo exhibition of new paintings and ceramic sculptures by artist Jiha Moon
NEW YORK, NY.- Derek Eller Gallery is presenting a solo exhibition of new paintings and ceramic sculptures by Atlanta-based artist Jiha Moon. Working with a palette of super-saturated yellows, oranges, magentas and blues against contrasting dark Hanji (Korean mulberry paper) and brown stoneware, Moon mixes ingredients from Asian tradition and folklore, Western contemporary art, and global popular culture to create a vibrant and personal visual language in both two and three dimensions. Throughout many of the works in this exhibition, Moon incorporates a particular shade of “Stranger Yellow” which she describes as a “mysterious, luscious, yet cautiously high-key color that stands out”. Born in Korea in 1973, Moon has lived in the United States for over twenty years, and this color speaks to her notions of the visibility of the Asian community in America, as well as her … More

theroyal-1.jpgThe Royal Scottish Academy opens two new exhibitions
EDINBURGH.- IRON: Translating Territories explores the many roles that iron plays within our lives, seeking new routes and practices to map unfamiliar territories and possibilities through art practice. The exhibition uncovers diverse understandings of the physical world around us and reveals the creative potential and complexity of this singular material. Academician Gordon Munro RSA has assembled a pan-European group of artists, each bringing a unique perspective in their responses to the place of iron in our lives and its use as an artistic medium. Munro and Ewan Robertson are each exhibiting installation works assembled from recycled iron objects, whilst Oana Stanciu’s performative exploration of iron is on view. Clare Flatley’s work responds to the place of iron in theories of alchemy and Michał Staszczak and Paweł Czekański extend traditional methods into contemporary … More

almine-1.jpgAlmine Rech Shanghai presents Rudolf Polanszky’s second solo exhibition at the gallery
SHANGHAI.- Almine Rech Shanghai is presenting Rudolf Polanszky’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, on view from December 10, 2021 to January 27, 2022. Apeiron, the title of Rudolf Polanszky’s exhibition, mirrors his “ad hoc synthesis approach” of building and dissolving purely abstract forms. With a selection of recent works, drawn from his Reconstructions series, Polanszky further implodes the Modernist palimpsest via his hybrid paintings and sculpture. Along with his films, music and documented performances, Polanszky’s body of work finds inspiration from mathematical metaphysics, rather than the canon of art history. Apeiron, according to the Greek philosopher Anaximander, is the source of everything, a boundless force which having emerged from nothing, is inevitably drawn to reconciliation in the guise of the infinite void of its origin. Experiencing Polanszky’s work … More

thepower-1.jpgThe power of Sidney Poitier
NEW YORK, NY.- When Sidney Poitier died Thursday at 94, tributes poured forth for him, the first Black performer to win the Academy Award for best actor, and a man whom President Joe Biden called a “once-in-a-generation actor and advocate” whose work “changed the world on and off the big screen.” Four critics for The New York Times reflect on Poitier’s influence and legacy. The elegance, the poise, the steely spine — but, oh, the face — when I think of Sidney Poitier, I first think of how beautiful he was and the sheer physical perfection of the man. He had the kind of old-fashioned Hollywood beauty and glamour that made the movies and made audiences dream and desire, turning them into repeat customers. There was much more to Poitier, yes, and he will be rightly remembered as a towering figure in the civil rights movement, one that has always been fought on the screen … More

Blurring the line between art and technology, Arca trained an algorithm with 31 images of her mixed media paintings, allowing these material real-world artworks to transcend the physical realm to debut her emergence as a visual artist on the global stage. Arca said: “I hope you are compelled by these interpolated paintings of mine to take a moment and let the visual ASMR produce pleasure, allow for a moment of respite and solace, the experience of warped beauty.” Alejandra Ghersi Rodríguez, known professionally as Arca, is one … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Mary Berridge’s award-winning series of photographs is paired with narratives written primarily by the subjects or their parents. The book Visible Spectrum offers an intimate view of life with autism, as told from within an autism community, which includes Berridge and her son. It encourages an alternate way of seeing the condition, in which the diverse and unconventional perspectives of the autistic are valued. It also explores the ways the autistic and their families navigate a world which is not made for them and in which they are not always welcome. Despite this,the stories may surprise readers with their thought-provoking and affirmative viewpoints on autism and being different. The formally composed and quietly luminous portraits allude to the … More

post-1.jpgPostmasters presents its first exhibition with Chando Ao
NEW YORK, NY.- Postmasters is presenting its first exhibition with Chando Ao, a Chinese multimedia artist who splits his time between New York and Shanghai. The exhibition with its deceptively simple title “My I’ (inspired by Douglas Hofstadter and Daniel Dennett’s book The Mind’s I) consists of a series of artworks that function as tools for the viewer’s sensory experiences. Chando Ao’s works, where technology and human experience intersect, provide a variety of tools to confuse, inspire, induce, stimulate, and disturb the audience; to let them generate new feelings about their “I”; to connect irrelevant things beyond intellectual experience; to make the obvious strange and, perhaps, to make the strange obvious. Then, “I” becomes vivid. The objects in the show – two digital drawings, two chairs, two dogs, two vessels, and three screen mirrors – are all interactive, self-reflective instruments to … More

OXFORD.- Changing the Story brings to light a neglected strand in British history, through a series of striking photographs dating from 1917 to 1962, interpreted by award-winning writer and performer Rommi Smith during her time as the inaugural writer-in-residence at leading photographic agency TopFoto. Thirty-four of these revelatory photographs will go on public display for the first time alongside new writing by Smith which responds directly to the photographs. Changing the Story runs at the North Wall from 10 until 29 January 2022 and admission is free. Commissioned to delve into the archive at TopFoto, Smith was struck by how many of the fleeting moments captured by photographers such as Ken Russell and Roger Bamber disrupt monoculturalist ideas of … More
