Sointu Syrjala, Scene design for “Sunday in the Park” in Pins and Needles, 1937. Watercolor, gouache, and ink on paper. Gift of Robert L. B. Tobin, TL1999.328.3.

SAN ANTONIO, TX.- From city streets to Texas Hill Country roads, San Antonio features a kaleidoscope of landscapes. Street Scene: Cities on Stage explores the artful qualities of built environments via stage designs from the Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts and artworks from the McNay‘s Permanent Collection. The new exhibition is on view in the Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts and Brown Galleries through February 6, 2022. Street Scene: Cities on Stage shows how theatre designers create realistic stage settings that challenge and stretch our understanding of urban environments forged from steel, glass, bricks, and mortar. The artworks on view also offer interpretations of small-town life. Some designs are imaginative, colorful, exciting, and surreal, while others depict more realistic visions of sleepy farm towns. “Traveling from the heart of downtown San Antonio to the rolling Texas Hill Country, street scenes in our communities transform from u … More

Florida museums highlight Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Machu Picchu A curator makes room for big ideas and big art With a stellar panel, Asia Week New York zooms-in on collecting contemporary Asian art
boca-1.jpg

Down the coast a bit, the Boca Raton Museum of Art is presenting “Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru,” a dazzling collection of sculpted gold and silver ornaments, ceramic jugs and bowls, many dating back thousands of years.

by Joseph B. Treaster

WEST PALM BEACH, FLA.- Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera — the tormented lovers and heavyweight Mexican artists — are together again. This time at a museum in West Palm Beach. Their paintings, a batch of photographs and a replica of a Rivera mural are part of a pair of Latin American art exhibitions that create an elegant change of pace from the mostly contemporary work at Art Basel Miami Beach this year. The Kahlo and Rivera show at the Norton Museum of Art captures a segment of the modernist movement in Mexico from the 1920s through the 1950s that the museum’s director, Ghislain d’Humierès, said added another dimension to the Norton’s permanent collection of American and European modernism. Down the coast a bit, the Boca Raton Museum of Art is … More

MEXICO CITY.- Art Basel had practical purposes in mind when it introduced the Meridians section to its sprawling Miami Beach marketplace in 2019. The oversize exhibition space was meant to make room for large-scale objects and performance pieces that galleries could not fit in their standard fair booths. But the sideshow display of giant, colorful canvases, 3D installations and multichannel videos ended up transforming the whole fair-going experience, adding a curated art option — something more like a museum show — to the seemingly endless grid of retail spaces that make up the event. At the booths, visitors shopped. At Meridians, they watched, walked through and interacted with the art. It made Art Basel Miami Beach more engaging. Part of the credit goes to the work; it was well received, as they say in the art world. But another part goes to the curator, Magalí Arriola, … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Continuing their series of lively and thought-provoking webinars, Asia Week New York is pleased to present Ahead of the Curve: Collecting Contemporary Asian Art, a webinar on Thursday, December 2 at 5:00 p.m. EST. To register click here. As contemporary Asian artists find more inventive forms, styles and media to express their creativity, there are more opportunities to entice collectors–both novice and seasoned–to start or build upon a new or existing collection. Whether it’s a geometric-shaped Japanese bamboo basket, a complex Chinese ink drawing from a young emerging artist, a dramatic contemporary Japanese photograph or a contemporary Indian painting, there is one thing that unites them: the collector’s discerning eye. In partnership with Joan B Mirviss LTD, the panel discussion will spotlight four areas of contemporary Asian art: Chinese ink painting, bamboo art, So … More

BOGOTA.- Contemporary art is an export industry in Colombia. Gallerists boast of an abundant supply of homegrown artists but bemoan a shortage of consumers willing to pay the prices that could support professional careers. If galleries want to sell at the high end of the international market, they need to build connections at global fairs such as Art Basel Miami Beach. Those fairs can be a side business for legacy dealers from Manhattan or Los Angeles, where local buyers keep the cash flowing, but they serve as crucial revenue generators for places such as Casas Riegner and Instituto de Visión, Bogotá galleries that will show in Miami this year. “Our local market is very limited, very small, and it would be very difficult for us to subsist or to depend on it,” said Paula Bossa, Casas Riegner curator. “Hopefully, one day we can.” The galleries have different styles. Casas Riegner is elegant and inside … More

LONDON.- Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904 – 1988) is one of the most experimental and important artists of the 20th century. Barbican Art Gallery is staging the first European touring retrospective of his work in 20 years. This exhibition is jointly organised and curated by Barbican Centre (London), Museum Ludwig (Cologne) and Zentrum Paul Klee (Bern), in partnership with LaM – Lille Métropole Musée d’art moderne, d’art contemporain et d’art brut. Retracing the evolution of Noguchi’s kaleidoscopic career over six decades across sculpture, architecture, dance and design, the exhibition celebrates the artist’s inventive and risk-taking approach to sculpture as a living environment. Drawing from The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum in New York, as well as private and public collections, the exhibition brings together over 150 works, including an extraordinary range of sculptures – created in stone … More

by Ginanne Brownell

LONDON.- At first glance, the works of Marcellina Akpojotor and Sungi Mlengeya seemingly have nothing in common. Akpojotor’s bright canvases are infused with color and textiles, and Mlengeya creates stripped-down black-and-white works that are stunning in their simplicity. “One is more minimalist, while the other is loaded with craftsmanship, with skill, with nuance, with maybe a bit more overt messaging but also equally well done,” said Azu Nwagbogu, founder and director of the Africa Artists’ Foundation in Lagos, Nigeria. “The key thing is, they both work with conviction and competence.” But both artists have an eye for capturing the spirit of contemporary African women, exploring female empowerment and the roles of women in African society. And both artists will be making their debuts at Art Basel Miami … More

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK.- The Oklahoma City Museum of Artannounced a receipt of a major gift of over 100 important works from the “Golden Age” of studio glass from the Jerome V. and Judith G. Rose Family Glass Collection. The collection includes works by pioneers of the studio glass movement and many other artists prominent in U.S. and international museum and private collections, among them Harvey K. Littleton, Dale Chihuly, Paul Marioni, Flora Mace and Joey Kirkpatrick, William Morris, Lino Tagliapietra, Jaroslava Brychtova and Stanislav Libensky, and Ginny Ruffner. Jerome and Judith Rose, known to their family and friends as Jerry and Judy, began collecting glass in 1977 with the acquisition of a small glass teapot by Richard Marquis. The Roses traveled frequently in the 1980s and 1990s building their collection. This included many visits to Seattle where they became friendly with Dale Chihuly and many of the other artists represented in the coll … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Many comic book characters anchor global franchises, but their creators — or the writers and artists who helped make them popular — have not always shared in that success. Zestworld, a new subscription-based platform that is set to be introduced early next year, is hoping to change that. Zestworld will allow comic book writers and artists to present new work and reap the benefits — and help monetize their creations if they are made into collectibles or adapted for TV, movies or other media. The creators will be stockholders in the company. “In setting out to build this, we started with the problem statement that this industry is broken for creators; and it’s broken in publishing and TV and film; it’s also broken in events and collectibles,” Chris Giliberti … More

LONDON.- Considering her tumultuous early childhood, it is little wonder that South African artist Bonolo Kavula craves the meditative mental stillness she gets from working with textiles. Born in Kimberley, South Africa, she was raised by a foster family after her mother’s death (she was 4 at the time). She was later enrolled in an art school where she was the only Black student. In secondary school, she won a national youth art award and went on to study printmaking at the Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Kavula, now 29, is making her debut at Art Basel Miami Beach with “a re kopane ko thabeng,” an expansion of her first solo exhibition, “sewedi sewedi” (Sewedi was her mother’s maiden name), that was held earlier this year at the Cape Town outpost of Smac Gallery, which represents … More

Centraal Museum presents ‘Antonis Pittas: jaune, geel, gelb, yellow’ Donors worry about fate of artifacts as museum on Irish famine closes An auto show for the raddest cars of the ’80s and ’90s

UTRECHT.- Antonis Pittas (1973, Athens) has long been researching the visual language and legacy of modernism and its promise for a better, more egalitarian and democratic world for all. However, the urge for total renewal also contributed to total destruction. In 2019 Pittas was an artist in residence at the Van Doesburg House, the former home and studio of Theo van Doesburg, just outside of Paris. His residency coincided with the widespread yellow vest protests in France. Although the demonstrations seemed visually united by the yellow vests, the protestors’ motivations for change were extremely diverse. Pittas moved from the urgency of the protests outside on the streets to the historical context and the private sphere of the Van Doesburg House. It brought him to investigate the legacy of modernism through a political lense, culminating into a solo exhibition at Centraal Museum and an autonomous publication … More

by Colin Moynihan

NEW YORK, NY.- In the mid-1990s, John L. Lahey, president of Quinnipiac College, read a book about the 19th-century potato famine in Ireland and decided that its causes and consequences, its death toll and resulting diaspora, warranted broader exposure. It is estimated that at least 1 million Irish died and that another 2 million or more left the country in the years after the devastation of the potato crop, caused by disease, led to widespread hunger. The college that Lahey led began collecting artworks and documents related to the famine and in 2012 opened Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum inside a former public library building in Hamden, Connecticut, near the school’s campus. Although the institution focused on the specific events, Lahey saw the famine story as being about more than the agricultural failure that began in 1845, he told people. It was also about … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Everything was awesome. The music was fresh, the movies were dope and the hair was big. The cars? Rad, then and now. Maybe especially now. In the 1980s and ’90s, cars were boxy and far-out, futuristic and often a bit funky. Then came a new millennium and the internet era, and the previous two decades quickly felt dated. Eventually, all those “Back to the Future” angles gave way to cars with more timeless, sloping silhouettes. The coolest cars of the ’80s and ’90s — the DeLoreans and Countachs, Audi’s Quattro and Nissan’s 300ZX — faded away like a photo of Marty McFly. But with time comes nostalgia, and Gen Xers and millennials are moving forward in their lives and careers, with greater ability to spend on a hobby like collecting cars. And so the forgotten-about cars they grew up with are gaining new respect, and pushing up prices. A group called RADwood has tapped into this vein, putting on auto shows with a dash of cosplay dress-up througho … More

Smith and Billy WhiteTaken together, the exhibition emphasizes a set of shared formal mannerisms between the artists: flatness rather than a sense of perspective, a graphic line rather than finely wrought draughtsmanship. The works contain a sense of speed, immediacy and improvisation. Repeated figures assume a symbolic, spiritual or totemic quality. Eddie Martinez has become known for work that joins together painting and drawing, … More

arlene-1.jpgArlene Dahl, movie star turned entrepreneur, is dead at 96
NEW YORK, NY.- Arlene Dahl, who parlayed success as a movie actress in the 1940s and ’50s into an even more successful career as an author, beauty expert, astrologist, and fashion and cosmetics entrepreneur, died Monday at her home in Manhattan. She was 96. The death was confirmed by her husband, Marc Rosen. Strikingly beautiful, Dahl was a model before becoming an actress — “considered one of the world’s loveliest gals,” The Daily News of New York wrote in a profile in 1959, using the parlance of the day. With her fiery red hair, she was a natural for Technicolor; she notably played the seductive sister of another famous redhead, Rhonda Fleming, in the 1956 crime drama “Slightly Scarlet.” But although she demonstrated her range in everything from westerns, like “The Outriders” (1950), to the Red Skelton comedies “A Southern Yankee” (1948) and “Watch the … More

PARIS.- Plans to replace the gothic ambience of Notre Dame cathedral with a softer vibe of modern art and warm lighting have raised a few eyebrows, but the priest in charge denies any radical transformation is afoot. With the cathedral set to reopen in 2024 — five years after a fire devastated much of its roof and spire — church authorities are putting forward new plans on December 9 for how the public will experience the iconic Parisian landmark. They include Bible quotes to be projected in multiple languages on the walls and new art installations in place of its little-used 19th century confessionals, said Father Gilles Drouin, who is charged with reworking the interior, in an interview with AFP. Gone would be the traditional straw chairs, to be replaced by more comfortable benches with their own little lamps to brighten the gloom — perhaps even able to disappear into the floor when not … More

hirshhorn-1.jpgPresentation marks Toyin Ojih Odutola’s first major museum exhibition in the US
WASHINGTON, DC.- This fall, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden presents “A Countervailing Theory,” a major exhibition of work by Toyin Ojih Odutola (born Ile-Ife, Nigeria, 1985), Nov. 19–April 3, 2022. The exhibition features a recent body of work in the form of a monumental cycle of 40 large-scale, monochromatic drawings that chronicle a myth conceived by the artist. The installation spans the entirety of the museum’s circular inner galleries on its second floor, nearly 400 linear feet. Ojih Odutola is known for investigating the relationship between drawing and storytelling, using materials such as pastel, charcoal and chalk to communicate elaborate, fictional narratives of her own creation. With this series, she explores how mark-making can open up pathways to new meanings. By fluidly shifting between the imaginary and the real, Ojih Odutola incorporates an … More

LONDON.- Gallery FUMI’s new group exhibition Stories and Other Objects features an exciting selection of works by the gallery roster of international artists and designers. Presenting newly commissioned work along with a selection of key pieces, the exhibition invites visitors to observe the growth of artists who are at the forefront in the use of materials and technologies. Some are using new colours, materials and shapes. Others are moving towards a more figurative aesthetic; whilst others are taking inspiration from their past, or their mistakes. For Italian craftsman Francesco Perini, nature serves as the main inspiration of his ‘creatures’ – as he likes defining the works that he makes applying his marquetry skills. Living in the Tuscan countryside and observing the surrounding landscape, Perini’s work is a celebration of the simplest natural elements: leaves, trees, water. Now his attention has … More

Flashback
On a day like today, Italian architect Andrea Palladio was born
N_2021-11-30-Flashback-687b0e7b-f395.jpg
November 30, 1508. Andrea Palladio (30 November 1508 – 19 August 1580) was an architect active in the Republic of Venice. Palladio, influenced by Roman and Greek architecture, primarily by Vitruvius, is widely considered the most influential individual in the history of Western architecture. All of his buildings are located in what was the Venetian Republic, but his teachings, summarized in the architectural treatise I Quattro Libri dell’Architettura (The Four Books of Architecture), gained him wide recognition. The city of Vicenza and the Palladian Villas of the Veneto are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In this image: A Royal Academy of Arts staff looks over a model of the Villa Emo at the Royal Academy in London, Britain, 27 January, 2009. The Royal Academy of Arts showed the first exhibition devoted to one of Italy’s greatest architects, Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) to be held in London. The exhibit follows Palladio’s career, from the earlier palazzi in Vicenza, the Basilica and his innovative solutions to rural buildings.

Global Agreement
November 20 – December 22, 2021

391 Grand Street, New York, NY 10002

In an interview for the 2018 exhibition of Global Agreement, Neïl Beloufa remarks, “the idea of the show is that the world has never been this globalized. People have never been this connected.” And yet, as the artist counters, war, militarization, and identitarian divide are omnipresent in societies across the globe–their chokehold on channels of communication even more so.

Beloufa is no stranger to concepts as vast and nebulous as these. They feature centrally in his multimedia practice, whose witty reliefs and circuitous electricals often allegorize structures of power. And in the wake of a global pandemic, amid 2021’s hyper-dependency on digital interfaces (re: Zoom), Beloufa’s installation has its finger on the pulse of our most contemporary communications. Global Agreement was first shown at the Schirn Künsthalle Frankfurt, and then at 2019’s Venice Biennale. The exhibition examines modern warfare from the vantage of its direct personnel. Beloufa worked closely with soldiers stationed around the world, extracting from their testimonies a characterization of war that resists accounts from Hollywood or the army itself. Instead, the image he presents is atomized, obscured through digital platforms, and reconstructed with startling new prescience. Merging interactive architectures with the artist’s eagle-eyed vigilance toward the levers of power, Global Agreement puts forward a compelling allegory for the paradox of globalization.

Upon first encounter, Beloufa’s multimedia benches reveal a blend of ergonomic cues. Ambiguous rope suspensions and slick vinyl upholstery suggest a system at once gymnastic, orthopedic, and unmistakably institutional. The rote, modular design of the benches evokes the indelible sense that they’re involved in some kind of “training.” Approaching the LCD displays, the seated viewer finds a vertical apparatus extending from atop each bench, equipped with a viewfinder. Undecided headrest or restraint, the apparatus becomes the physical mediator of Beloufa’s video works. These feature Skype interviews of soldiers and military staff, many of whom have large social media followings. Interviews are conducted exclusively online using an array of digital aliases. Footage is then edited to exclude Beloufa’s questioning, and to include only the interviewees’ remarks–often mundane, sometimes deeply personal. The effect–transforming the viewer from third-person onlooker to direct participant in an increasingly genuine social interaction–is a conversational dynamic wavering between anonymity and intimate confessional. A dire sense of unease, even discomfort pervades each interview. This belongs largely to the work’s uncanny glimpses of state-sanctioned violence operating in real time, and through real-world agents. One soldier, her face illuminated by the garish blue cast of the computer monitor, confides: “I know it’s gonna sound funny, but I don’t like fighting…the Navy’s mission is really just to make the world a better place…a global force for good, as they say…”

Saddled across Beloufa’s cloying pink bench cushions, the viewer is situated not within an armed conflict, but beside the people through whom these immense and shadowy global apparatuses (war, economy, communication, etc.) actually take place. That is to say, beside ordinary people. Beloufa’s composition abstracts the facts of war through the personalities and personal lives of those immediately involved. The reconstituted image is one ultimately more faithful to the relationship between transnational power structures and their actors. “You talk to someone, you hear someone talking about love, his life…and so in the sculptures,” Beloufa notes, “you’re in front of your own empathy.” In this sense, the arrangement is not unlike our contemporary social media, behind whose retina screens and familiar faces lurk similar political agendas.

Framing the perimeter of the exhibition are a selection of Beloufa’s polychrome light boxes. Their translucent mosaics of quaint floral imagery jar against welded steel underpinnings, consumer refuse, and the conspicuous electrical cords that anchor each work to an outlet. In conversation with the video installation, these works offer yet another keen metaphor for the new world order’s vague and far-reaching interruptions to modern life.

Neïl Beloufa (born 1985, Paris, France) is a French-Algerian artist who lives and works in Paris. He studied at École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts and at École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris; California Institute of the Arts, Valencia, USA; Cooper Union, New York; and Fresnoy – National Contemporary Arts Studio, Tourcoing, France. Beloufa has presented recent solo exhibitions at François Ghebaly, Los Angeles (2021); Pirelli HangarBicocca (2020), Schirn Künsthalle, Frankfurt (2018); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2018); Pejman Foundation, Tehran (2017); K11 Art Foundation, Shanghai (2017); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2016); and Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin (2015). He participated in the Venice Biennale in 2013 and 2019, the Biennale of Contemporary Art in Shanghai in 2014, and the Lyon Biennale of Contemporary Art in 2013.

The art of storytelling in Andalusian Baroque painting arrives at the Prado Museum

MADRID.- Curated by Javier Portús, Chief Curator of Spanish Painting (up to 1800) at the Museo Nacional del Prado, and with the collaboration of the Comunidad de Madrid, the exhibition is devoted to a specific pictorial typology produced in the 17th century by some of the leading Andalusian Baroque painters. During the central decades of the 17th century a type of painting was produced in Andalusia that was notably representative of both the high levels achieved by the principal painters of the region and the expectations and tastes of one of the most active sectors of their clientele. These are works structured as series, most of medium size and commissioned by private individuals for domestic interiors or private oratories. They depict a “story” taken from the Bible or the hagiographies, either in the form of an individual’s life story recounted in greater or lesser detail, or the different stages within one biogra … More

In this photograph taken on October 13, 2021, Afghan photographer Haji Mirzaman (R) stands next to his homemade wooden box camera known as a “kamra-e-faoree” after taking a picture at his home in Kabul. Mirzaman was just a teenager when he started taking photos using a homemade wooden box camera in his cousin’s studio in downtown Kabul, but now in his 70s, he says the “kamra-e-faoree” — or “instant camera” as it is known in Dari — has survived wars, invasions and a Taliban ban on photography, but is now in danger of disappearing because of digital technology.

LONDON.- Stern Pissarro Gallery is presenting Camille Pissarro: Works from the Gallery Collection, an exhibition featuring over forty works by Impressionist master Camille Pissarro. The show is a rich presentation of pieces, including paintings, gouaches, watercolours, pastels, drawings and etchings, which together encapsulate his most iconic subjects. Amongst the various highlights for this exhibition is a set of early works on paper from the Venezuelan period, along with a pair of pointillist paintings from 1888, by Camille Pissarro and his eldest son Lucien, which are rarely seen side by side. In addition to this, other highlights include a stunning Impressionist snow scene from 1885, and an array of oil paintings, which are being brought together to demonstrate some of the best works from the heights of Pissarro’s career. Acting as a mini retrospective, this exhibition documents the life and work of … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Eli Wilner & Company announced they have recently completed the reframing of Alfred Jacob Miller’s painting, “Our Camp,” circa 1846-1860 for the Whitney Western Art Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming. The project was the winner of Wilner’s 2020 fully-funded replica frame grant. Submitted by Karen B. McWhorter, the Scarlett Curator of Western American Art, the Miller reframing was unanimously selected by an independent panel of jurors from a very strong field of submissions. Wilner will be announcing a new grant opportunity for the museum community in the coming weeks. “Our Camp” is one of thirty-three Alfred Jacob Miller paintings and drawings in the Center of the West’s collection. It is one of five major oils in their holdings, and is significant in terms of its scale, subject, and rarity. Miller … More

PARIS.- In 2001 and 2017, The Museum of Modern Art in New York acquired more than 350 photographs from the collector Thomas Walther. This collection, which is now one of the pillars of MoMA’s modern collection, is presented for the first time in France in an exhibition of some 230 images. Comprising iconic works from the first half of the twentieth century, the exhibition provides a history of the European and American photographic avant-gardes. Through the works of a hundred or so photographers, from Berenice Abbott to Karl Blossfeldt, from Claude Cahun to El Lissitzky, from Edward Weston to André Kertész, this fusion of masterpieces and lesser-known images traces the history of modernity in photography.

Einstein, who died in 1955 aged 76 and is considered to be one of the greatest physicists ever, revolutionised his field with the theory of relativity and made major contributions to quantum mechanics theory.

PARIS.- A rare manuscript by theoretical physicist Albert Einstein goes under the hammer in Paris on Tuesday, with auctioneers aiming for a stratospheric price tag. The manuscript, containing preparatory work for Einstein’s key achievement the theory of relativity, is estimated at between two and three million euros (2.3-3.4 million), according to Christie’s which is hosting the sale on behalf of the Aguttes auction house. “This is without a doubt the most valuable Einstein manuscript ever to come to auction,” Christie’s said in a statement. The 54-page document was handwritten in 1913 and 1914 in Zurich, Switzerland, by Einstein and his colleague and confidant, Swiss engineer Michele Besso. Christie’s said it was thanks to Besso that the manuscript was preserved for posterity. This was “almost like a miracle” since the German-born genius himself would have … More

SOUTHAMPTON, NY.- Hauser & Wirth Southampton is presenting ‘Annie Leibovitz. Wonderland,’ an exhibition of photographic prints selected by the artist from her acclaimed body of work made over the past two decades. This presentation focuses upon work made since the 1990s, including fashion photography shot on assignment that, in the artist’s words, ‘revealed surprising avenues to portraiture.’ The exhibition offers fresh insight into the depth and breadth of Leibovitz’s unique artistic vision via fashion, landscape, and interior tableaux. ‘Wonderland’ is the first exhibition to showcase these images together in a single space, with many of the works having not been presented since their original publication. Leibovitz’s work makes use of visual references drawn from a wide range of sources – from literature and film, to the history of photography and the long tradition of formal … More

France, 1971, and 1976). The title of the exhibition is inspired by their lively design sense and creative spirit: Circus is a visual parade of designs for furniture, lighting, textiles, glass, ceramics, and room partition systems. These qualities illuminate the brothers’ minimal and refined visual language, combined with their thoughtful approach to materials that merges traditional methods with the possibilities of modern engineering.

Gillian Wearing is spilling your secrets Olivia Walton to lead Crystal Bridges board Works by creator of much-loved Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park coming up for auction

An installation view of “Gillian Wearing: Wearing Masks,” at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. What makes this British Turner Prize winner maddening also makes her fascinating — now her confessional art is on view in “Wearing Masks,” her first American museum retrospective. Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation via The New York Times.

by Will Heinrich

NEW YORK, NY.- Gillian Wearing, one of the Young British Artists (or YBAs) of the early 1990s, sailed to success on a tide of provocative confessional work. The confessions weren’t her own: Using masks, cue cards, and other distancing devices, she has been able to convince a stream of ordinary people to disgorge their most shameful secrets on camera. Since 1997, when she was awarded the Turner Prize, Wearing, now 57, has covered a lot of ground. She’s continued to amass confessions in photographs and on video, and she’s made elaborate self-portraits in which she, too, appears in disguise. She’s also been commissioned to make public sculptures of average citizens, … More

LONDON.- A selection of spectacular works by José de Creeft, famed sculptor of the much-loved sixteen-foot Alice in Wonderland sculpture in central Park, New York, will be offered in an important sale of European Works of Art at Olympia Auctions on Thursday November 25, 2021. The Spanish-born American artist and sculptor, de Creeft was revered for his modern sculpture in stone, wood and metal. He created predominantly female figural forms and was an early proponent of the direct carving approach to sculpture – a method of carving directly into the material, without the use of a model or maquette. His most well-known work for which he received global recognition was his sculpture of Alice in Wonderland, whose face was modelled on his daughter, Donna Maria and designed for children to climb on. The work commissioned by George T. Delacorte Jr. as a memorial for his wife, Margarita in 1956 sits to this day near East 74th Street in … More

cohan-1.jpgExhibition of new paintings by Grace Weaver opens at James Cohan
NEW YORK, NY.- James Cohan is presenting 11 Women, an exhibition of new paintings by Grace Weaver, on view from November 18 through December 18, 2021 at the gallery’s 52 Walker Street location. For her third exhibition at James Cohan, Weaver has created eleven paintings of monumentally-scaled women. Expressively executed in thick oil paint, the figures are arrested mid-stride as they navigate the hazards of city streets, their dynamic limbs rendered in pink against asphalt grounds. At once heroic and awkward, sturdy yet precarious, brutal but tender, her subjects contend with what it is to be a woman moving through—and taking up—space. Weaver paints with unflinchingly bold gestures that embody the exaggerated physicality of her subjects. She has left behind the thin surfaces and smoothed edges that shaped … More

Farhadi, who divides his time between Iran and abroad, shot his last movie, “A Hero”, a drama about a prisoner, in the Iranian city of Shiraz. “I have explicitly expressed my point of view on the suffering (the state) has imposed for years on the nation,” he said, referring to the repression of demonstrations in January 2017 and November 2019, and the “cruel discrimination” against women and the government’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. … More

nada-1.jpgThe New Art Dealers Alliance hosts exhibition of works by Nokukhanya Langa, presented by Ballon Rouge
NEW YORK, NY.- The New Art Dealers Alliance hosts Ballon Rouge, Brussels, for Nokukhanya Langa’s first solo exhibition in the United States, and the second exhibition at NADA’s new, year-round project space, located in Chinatown’s East Broadway Mall. In March of 2021 we had our first solo exhibition with Nokukhanya Langa at our space in Brussels; It was titled Baby, I’m not even here. I’m a hallucination. Presented here at NADA’s project space is a kind of synopsis and continuation of that exhibition. Nokukhanya’s practice is defined by her distinct and subversive visual language. She is neither of a school of pure abstraction, nor are her works plainly narrative or figurative. Instead, her works exist in the same space as do vernacular idioms. They are fugitives to direct meaning and intuitively insinuate. They layer private histories, political and cultural … More

dutchphotog-1.jpgDutch photographer Frank van Driel exhibits ‘The Art of Perception’
‘S-HERTOGENBOSCH.- Museum Slager in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands, presents an exhibition by Fine Art photographer Frank van Driel from 21 November 2021 until 20 February 2022. With ‘The Art of Perception’, the monumental museum shows a selection of contemporary still lifes and (nude) portraits. At the same time, the Dutch artist is launching a first monograph ‘to be frank’. Frank van Driel refers with his use of light and symbolism to the Dutch and Flemish master painters of the 17th century. He only shoots with natural light and connects past, present and future. Antique objects made of glass, silver, pottery and tin enter into an intriguing interplay with people, game, fish, flowers, fruits and contemporary objects. An extensive oeuvre has been built up with a recognizable signature. The visual artist has a great passion for purity, history … More

secession-1.jpgNairy Baghramian presents an installation at Vienna’s Secession
VIENNA.- In art that typically takes the (fragmented) human body as its point of departure, Nairy Baghramian grapples with the fundamental questions of art production: with the interrelations between production and reception, between picture and frame, between object and pedestal, for example, but also with the use of materials and the work’s interaction with the everyday. In site-responsive installations, sculptures that appear fragile, obviously in need of support, drawings, and photographic works, the artist takes a stand against the conventional pose of self-confidence, the dominant creative gesture, and its claim to perpetual validity. Her formal idiom, choice of materials, and approach have as much in common with post-minimalism as with conceptual art; the artist harnesses the potential of abstraction to address complex sets of questions … More

Alongside an open-air market selling clothes and accessories such as the huipil, a traditional white cotton blouse with finely embroidered patterns, there are fashion parades resembling indigenous pride marches. The goal is to end what Mexico’s leftist government denounces as cultural appropriation of the motifs, embroidery and colors of indigenous communities by foreign fashion houses. “Plagiarism is not a tribute.

venez-1.jpgVenezuela sets largest orchestra world record
CARACAS.- Venezuela on Saturday locked in the Guinness record for the world’s largest orchestra after thousands of local musicians performed Tchaikovsky’s “Slavonic March.” The performers were brought together by Venezuela’s publicly funded “El Sistema” program, which was founded in 1975 and has since provided classical music training to thousands of working-class children. Gustavo Dudamel, the music director of the Paris Opera and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, is one of its most notable alumni. “I can confirm that this attempt has been successful, congratulations,” an official in charge of delivering the verdict announced on a screen during a ceremony at the El Sistema headquarters. “You are officially amazing.” About 12,000 musicians, including both children and adults who are members of the country’s main orchestra, … More

COTONOU.- With drums, dancing and tears, Benin on Wednesday welcomed back nearly 30 royal treasures looted from the West African state during France’s colonial rule more than 130 years ago. The artefacts, some considered sacred in Benin, arrived in the economic capital Cotonou by plane before being transported in three trucks, escorted by horses, to the presidential palace. The return of the artefacts comes as calls mount in Africa for Western countries to hand back colonial spoils from their museums. Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany have also received requests from African countries to return lost treasures. In Benin on Wednesday, hundreds of people from all over the country thronged the streets to watch the treasures arrive. Adults and children, mostly dressed in … More

LONDON.- London’s Courtauld Gallery, shut since 2018 for renovation works, reopens its doors later this month after what it said was the largest transformation project in its history. The gallery, located in Somerset House, a listed building on the banks of the River Thames, has undergone a multi-million-pound renovation and restructuring. “The Courtauld has one of the great collections in the UK,” gallery director Ernst Vegelin van Claerbergen told AFP on Wednesday. “What we wanted to do was marry it harmoniously to this important historic building. So the two things come together and work beautifully.” Among the major works carried out is the complete overhaul of the Great Room — the oldest exhibition space in the British capital and home to the Royal Academy’s summer exhibitions from 1780 to 1836. The gallery has kept the exact cost of the renovations under wraps but it has involved financing from the LVMH Foundation. Its world-renowned collection of Impression … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s first in-person auction in New York since the pandemic began netted more than $200 million on Tuesday night, with paintings by Basquiat and Banksy going under the hammer. In a sign of the vitality of the current art market, all forty lots found a buyer in the ’21st Century’ sale at the Christie’s auction room in the Rockefeller Center, which was open to the public for the first time since March 2020. But it took place in a hybrid format, where it was possible to bid physically from New York or connected real-time bidding rooms in London and Hong Kong, as well as online. The auction’s total sales were $219 million, with bidders registered from 27 countries, Christie’s said. The most anticipated piece was “Guilt of Gold Teeth” by Jean-Michel Basquiat, a 1982 painting on a large-scale canvas that went for $40 million. The piece “depicts Baron Samedi, a spirit of … More

The Greek culture ministry, which assisted US software giant Microsoft with the Ancient Olympia Common Grounds app, in a statement said the monuments were “as faithful to their original form as possible”.

ATHENS.- A virtual tour of ancient Olympia, cradle of the Olympic Games and one of Greece’s top archaeological sites, on Wednesday opened to the public, bringing nearly 30 of its temples and monuments to a wider audience. The archeological treasures are rendered in 3D, including the Stadium, the Temple of Hera where the sacred flame of the modern Olympics is lit every two years, and the workshop of master sculptor Pheidias, creator of the Parthenon in Athens. The Greek culture ministry, which assisted US software giant Microsoft with the Ancient Olympia Common Grounds app, in a statement said the monuments were “as faithful to their original form as possible”. Among the highlights of the application is the legendary gold-and-ivory statue of Zeus, created by Pheidias. Considered one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, the massive statue is believed to have been destroyed or lost … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Gagosian will present an exhibition of paintings and drawings by Mark Tansey, representing more than six years of work. The exhibition at 980 Madison Avenue in New York will feature one new painting—Xing (2021)—three other recent paintings, and a selection of new drawings made in graphite mixed with oil or water. Working within the stylistic conventions of figurative painting, Tansey pursues a fascination with history by layering imagery derived from an extensive archive of printed ephemera, collages, and sketches, often depicting sublime landscapes punctuated by figures or vessels. In detailed monochromatic scenes—since 2004 he has made particular use of blue—he distorts perspective and scale, emphasizing their sensate presence while restructuring our readings of historical period and spatial orientation. Tansey paints using a subtractive process, first priming the canvas with gesso, then painting one section at … More

NEW YORK, NY.- While preparing the wall text for a museum exhibition about New York City, the curator, Wendy Nalani E. Ikemoto, consulted an unlikely figure in the world of contemporary American art: a Central Park carriage driver. She walked up to Nurettin Kirbiyik and his horse at a spot where carriages convene at the southern end of the park and showed him a photograph of a 1945 oil painting by Gifford Beal, “Central Park Hack,” in which a top-hat-wearing driver commands a regal white horse. “Hi, I’m a curator at the New-York Historical Society,” Ikemoto said in her introduction. Kirbiyik, like his predecessor, wore a top hat. “Can I talk to you about this painting?” Today his interpretation is emblazoned on the wall of New York City’s oldest museum, next to the painting. “This painting reminds me of springtime in Central Park when the leaves are at their … More

Wadsworth Atheneum announces new leadership model, appointment of CEO and search for new director Nationalmuseum acquires painting by Julia Beck Marie Antoinette’s bracelets dazzle at auction

To begin the transition to this new leadership model, the Board of Trustees has appointed Jeffrey N. Brown as the museum’s new CEO.

HARTFORD, CONN.- The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art announced today that it is transitioning to a distributed leadership model, splitting the roles of the CEO and Director into two separate positions, enabling the institution to better seize opportunities in a changing museum environment, consistent with its evolutionary heritage. In the new dyadic structure, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will be responsible for the overall leadership, vision, and strategic direction of the organization and its staff. The Director will report to the CEO and will be responsible for the artistic direction of the museum, steering the collection management, exhibitions, and educational programming activities. A search committee formed earlier this year by the Board of Trustees helped define this new model and identify the specifications of each position. Together, the CEO and Director form a leadership … More

STOCKHOLM.- Nationalmuseum has acquired a key work by Julia Beck, the 1883 painting Autumn Day. After a long period of obscurity, Beck has made a comeback in recent years and is now one of the most popular Swedish artists from the late 19th century. The newly acquired painting enables the museum to reflect the breadth and depth of her oeuvre when presenting her art to the public. Over the past decade, Julia Beck has emerged from a century of obscurity in an almost unprecedented way. Her paintings of water lily ponds have fetched high prices at auction, and previously unknown works have been discovered in private collections in France. Beck has also attracted increasing interest from art historians and exhibition organisers. The recently acquired painting, dating from 1883, is one of the most interesting works created by a member of the international artist colony at Grèz-sur-Loing outside Paris in the 1880s. The artists … More

GENEVA.- Two diamond bracelets once belonging to Marie Antoinette and imbued with her “glamour, glory and drama” according to Christie’s auction house, sold for more than $8 million on Tuesday. It was the first time that the bracelets, made up of 112 old-cut diamonds, had ever gone under the hammer. Marie Antoinette, the last queen of France before the French Revolution, was guillotined in Paris aged 37 in October 1793. “Her style defines the unique aesthetics of Versailles: opulent and regal, yet youthful and romantic. A tastemaker extraordinaire, then and now,” said Christie’s Europe chairman Francois Curiel. “Their royal provenance is impeccable; not only is their line of heritage unbroken and traceable from 1776 onwards, but the bracelets have been featured in two famous historic paintings,” said Curiel. “These bracelets travelled through time to recount … More

PARIS.- By offering up a new perspective on US and French imperialism, Viet Thanh Nguyen has become a literary star. But the Pulitzer-winning author insists that reducing everything to identity politics misses the point about the horrors of the past, and how to move forward. “I’m often called a Vietnamese-American writer, which I don’t have a problem with,” Nguyen told AFP. “But I do have a problem with it when other writers are just called ‘writers’. “My books are not only speaking about Vietnamese issues. They are speaking about France, the US, and global issues like colonialism, racism and imperialism.” Nguyen won international acclaim for his million-selling 2015 novel “The Sympathizer” about a half-Vietnamese, half-French double agent during the Vietnam War, who later remains embedded among exiles in the United … More

UNESCO had been riven by divisions when Azoulay took office in 2017 with both Israel and the United States exiting the agency over accusations of anti-Israeli bias. Unchallenged, Azoulay won her new mandate at UNESCO’s general conference with 155 votes in favour, just nine against and one abstention. “I see this result as a sign of regained unity within our organisation. Over the last four years, we have been able to restore confidence in UNESCO, and in some respects this has also been about restoring UNESCO’s confidence in itself,” she said. … More

super-1.jpgThe superheroes from House of Slay are here to stay
NEW YORK, NY.- One evening, just before Halloween, a party was held at Chinese Tuxedo, a trendy Cantonese restaurant in Chinatown in the New York City borough of Manhattan. Attendees entered through a back alley lit by yellow lanterns, past graffitied walls covered in posters of superheroes. Inside they sipped Champagne while Asian drag queens, West Dakota, Panthera Lush and Dynasty, writhed around the restaurant’s poles. The evening’s invitation had dictated: “Dress to Slay.” That was not because guests were about to get bloody, however. They were celebrating the birth of a new kind of superhero. Forget Shang-Chi. Forget the Eternals. The most unexpected supe debut is happening this week online, courtesy of House of Slay, a web comic book series about five Asian best friends who fight the God of Darkness.

usholo-1.jpgU.S. Holocaust Museum says China ‘may be committing genocide’ against Uyghurs
NEW YORK, NY.- The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum said in a report issued Tuesday that China had escalated its crimes against the Muslim community of Uyghurs in the northwestern region of Xinjiang and that it was “gravely concerned” that the government “may be committing genocide.” The report, “ ‘To Make Us Slowly Disappear’: The Chinese Government’s Assault on the Uyghurs,” builds on a March 2020 announcement made by the museum that there was “reasonable basis” to believe that the Chinese government “had perpetrated the crimes against humanity of persecution and of imprisonment” against the Uyghurs. Based on compiled evidence, the report issued Tuesday found there was now “reasonable basis” to believe that the crimes include “forced sterilization, sexual violence, enslavement, torture, and forcible transfer.” In a statement, Tom Bernstein, chair … More

met-1.jpgIn her Met debut, a conductor leads a fresh ‘La Bohème’
NEW YORK, NY.- Giacomo Puccini’s beloved “La Bohème,” with its lyrically rich and deftly written score, has the makings of a surefire opera. Yet the music is full of traps for a conductor, especially when it comes to pacing and rhythmic freedom; give singers too much expressive leeway, and things can easily turn flaccid. Even in a good performance of this well-known staple, it’s hard for a conductor’s work to stand out against the singers’ voices, which usually claim our attention. But Tuesday, when “Bohème” returned to the Metropolitan Opera — in Franco Zeffirelli’s enduringly popular production and with an appealing cast in place — the star of the evening was the conductor, Eun Sun Kim, in her Met debut. Last month, Kim made history at the San Francisco Opera as the first female music director of a major U.S. opera company. And at the Met this week, she did the job with musicianly … More

daylight-1.jpgDaylight Books to release ‘Viewing Distance: Remixing the Archives of the Military-Industrial Complex’
NEW YORK, NY.- Evan Hume first began filing Freedom of Information Act requests to obtain declassified photographs and documents when he was still a graduate student at George Washington University. Years later, his study of and subsequent archive of incomplete, redacted, “historical fragments” fills the pages of Viewing Distance. Time passage between when an image is taken and when it is viewed, and partial truths revealed as a result of obscured or redacted elements, combine and result in speculation and implication. It is within this space that Hume explores in this project with images that link decades and speak to the changing role of photography as a historical document. In the twentieth century photography became a more pervasive and essential tool in the international political landscape, utilized for reconnaissance and surveillance, both on the ground and aerial. … More

Coetzee) and any number of biographers (Joseph Frank, Leonid Grossman). In “Dostoevsky in Love,” published this year, Alex Christofi combined genres, plucking lines from Dostoyevsky’s fiction and training them across a trellis of biographical fact. The endless revisitation suggests something that Dostoyevsky himself may have appreciated. As Oliver Ready observes in the introduction to his superb translation of “Crime and Punishment,” knowing the facts is not the same as knowing the person — a notion that happens to align with Dostoyevsky’s own objections to the fixation on “mere data.” So Kevin Birmingham has set out to offer something more interpretive and … More

don-1.jpgDon Maddox, last survivor of a pioneering country band, dies at 98
NEW YORK, NY.- Don Maddox, the last surviving member of the Maddox Brothers & Rose, the lively sibling band that helped give rise to West Coast honky-tonk, rockabilly and early rock ’n’ roll, died Sept. 12 in an adult care facility in Medford, Oregon. He was 98. His death, which was not widely reported at the time, was confirmed by his wife of 11 years, Barbara Harvey-Maddox, who said he had been suffering from dementia. Hailed in the 1940s and ’50s as America’s “most colorful hillbilly band,” the Maddox Brothers & Rose were renowned for their exuberant fusion of barnyard twang and gutbucket R&B, as well as for their uproarious antics onstage. The fringed, embroidered costumes they wore — designed by Hollywood rodeo tailor Nathan Turk — were equally dazzling, a harbinger of the Western resplendence sported by Buck Owens in the 1960s and later by Gram Parsons … More

Six million visited wrapped Arc de Triomphe France hands back 26 treasures looted from Benin National Portrait Gallery announces winner of the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2021

PARIS.- Six million people visited the “Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped” when the iconic Paris monument was shrouded in fabric as a posthumous tribute to artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, according to estimates released on Tuesday. The monument, which towers over the famous Champs Elysees, was covered in 25,000 square metres (270,000 square feet) of silver-blue recyclable polypropylene for three weeks in September and early October. It was the long-held dream of Bulgarian-born Christo, who died last year at age 84, and his late wife Jeanne-Claude, ever since they rented a nearby apartment in the 1960s. The couple were renowned for wrapping huge public monuments around the world. A third of the visitors to the wrapped Arc were foreigners — a sign of the gradual return of tourists to the world’s most visited city as the pandemic eased this summer. … More

PARIS.- France on Tuesday handed back 26 treasures that were looted from Benin during colonial times, fulfilling a promise made by President Emmanuel Macron to restore a lost part of Africa’s heritage. Benin President Patrice Talon and Culture Minister Jean-Michel Abimbola travelled to Paris to bring home the artefacts that were snatched by French forces 130 years ago. Talon said he felt “overwhelming emotion” at recovering the objects taken during the ransacking of the kingdom of Dahomey in the south of present-day Benin, including a royal throne. Speaking to reporters at the presidential palace in Paris, where France signed over the artefacts to Benin, Talon said the treasures were much more than cultural goods — the term used by France to describe them. “This is our soul, Mr President,” he said, flanked by Macron. The French leader hailed “a symbolic … More

The winner of the £15,000 first prize was announced today, Monday 8 November, at the award ceremony held at Cromwell Place in South Kensington. Second prize was awarded to Pierre-Elie de Pibrac for Hakanai Sonzai, a series of portraits taken in Japan focused on people who exhibited fortitude in the face of adversity.

NEW YORK, NY.- Gagosian is presenting the gallery’s first exhibition of work by Donald Judd (1928–1994) in New York since announcing its representation of the artist and Judd Foundation in September. The exhibition features fifteen paintings dating from 1959 through 1961. While Judd’s oeuvre is defined principally though his three-dimensional work—which he conceived in opposition to the essential properties of both conventional painting and sculpture—he began his practice as a painter while also taking graduate courses in art history at Columbia University in New York. In addition, he supported himself as a critic: beginning in 1959, and continuing for the next five years, he wrote prolifically for Art News and Arts Magazine, publishing incisive essays and reviews of contemporary … More

He was 85. Robyn Beck / AFP.

NEW YORK, NY.- Dean Stockwell, who began his seven-decade acting career as a child in the 1940s and later starred as the cigar-smoking Al Calavicci in the science fiction TV series “Quantum Leap,” died Sunday at his home. He was 85. His death was confirmed by Jay Schwartz, a family spokesman, who did not specify a cause. Stockwell was known early in his career for his turns alongside the biggest stars of the age, and he eventually became a dependable Hollywood mainstay who lent gravitas to series like “JAG” and “Battlestar Galactica.” He earned more than 200 film and television credits as an actor from 1945 to 2015. But he lost interest several times in the profession he had been all but born into, escaping to work on railroads … More

The cache of paintings, drawings and prints by George Bissill (1896-1973) has been consigned by an Oxford lady whose father was left the contents of the artist’s home and studio in Ashmansworth, Hampshire almost 40 years ago. “The paintings have not been seen since they were taken from George Bissill’s studio in 1983” says Kate Pattinson. “My father Arthur Smith cleared out the entire body of his work – a much larger collection than is offered here – and stored it in attics and cupboards and under beds. “ After her parents died Kate took it upon herself to restore and frame many of the pictures and write the biography of a forgotten artist.

NEW YORK, NY.- Friedman Benda is presenting Upbeat, Michael Anastassiades’ debut solo-exhibition with the gallery and first solo show in the United States. A seminal figure in contemporary design, Anastassiades is internationally renowned for his precisely considered forms that delicately balance material and light. To realize this ambitious body of work, Anastassiades intentionally divested his exploratory prototyping process of industrial fabrication methods. Instead, he consciously resolved to confine production within the studio walls. Localizing initial creation proved a revelatory turning point; marking a departure from the studio’s signature, controlled materials, bamboo has been introduced as a core element. “The project has been an exercise of negotiation with the variability of nature.

NEW YORK, NY.- Inside the offices of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center hangs an old letter from an alarmed listener. “The accordion is not a chamber music instrument,” huffs the letter, written in the wake of a concert featuring a Bach sonata transcribed for cello and accordion. “Please do not impose that on your loyal audience again.” The sentiment gives a sense of the grand passions aroused by even tiny tweaks to the society’s programming. Since becoming the organization’s artistic directors in 2004, the husband-and-wife team of David Finckel and Wu Han have faced those passions, which fuel an often fiery debate about the future of classical music.

Flashback
On a day like today, English artist William Hogarth was born
N_2021-11-10-flashback-f3d6c54e-9fa7.jpg
November 10, 1697. William Hogarth (10 November 1697 – 26 October 1764) was an English painter, printmaker, pictorial satirist, social critic and editorial cartoonist who has been credited with pioneering western sequential art. His work ranged from realistic portraiture to comic strip-like series of pictures called “modern moral subjects”. Knowledge of his work is so pervasive that satirical political illustrations in this style are often referred to as “Hogarthian.” In this image: A visitor looks at a William Hogarth painting ‘David Garrick as Richard III’, on display at Tate Britain art gallery in London, Monday, Feb. 5, 2007.
