ST IVES (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- When Petrit Halilaj was 13 and a refugee from the brutal war in Kosovo, a group of Italian psychologists arrived at his camp in Albania and gave him some felt-tip pens. Halilaj was soon drawing dozens of bright, childish pictures. But their subjects were far from colorful: In one, he depicted tanks blowing up a family’s home; in another, a mass grave. Other pictures showed soldiers standing over dead bodies, with guns or bloody knives apparently raised in celebration. The psychologists spent two weeks in the camp, in 1999, trying to help the children there process the traumas they had experienced during the war, in which ethnic Albanian rebels fought against Serbian troops. For Halilaj, an ethnic Albanian, those traumas were many. Serbian forces burned down his home and captured his father. His family fled from place to place, until they ended up in the refuge in Albania. Halilaj’s vivid pictures impressed the psychologists — and not only them: Reporters visiting the cam … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Galerie Lelong & Co., New York, is presenting a solo exhibition with Jaume Plensa, featuring new sculptures by the artist, including the debut of the new nest series, that explores the innovation of figurative forms in his depictions of contemporary portraiture. The exhibition coincides with the opening of two monumental public-facing commissions: Plensa’s tallest sculpture to-date, Water’s Soul, at Newport Pier Park, Jersey City, and UTOPIA, a lobby of white marble relief located in the new welcome center for the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Plensa is internationally recognized as one of today’s leading contemporary portrait artists; harnessing the power of this approach to convey our relationship to the world and each other by emphasizing our shared humanity through portraits of individuals. In the nest series, reliefs of contemplative or dreaming faces emerge from alaba … More

NEW YORK, NY.- David Zwirner is presenting Seen in the Mirror: Things from the Cartin Collection, on view at the gallery’s 537 West 20th Street location. Since he began collecting in the 1980s, Mickey Cartin has assembled a remarkable and singular collection of works—including paintings from the last six centuries, drawings, sculptures, illuminated manuscripts, early printed books, artists’ books, and old master prints—that reflects his own expansive curiosity and his interest in the philosophical nuances he often discovers in them. Cartin’s thoughtful approach to collecting is informed by his fascination with beauty, knowledge, and the miraculous, as well as what curator Luke Syson calls the “taxonomies of the subjective and the irrational.” A general focus on certain genres, such as portraiture and self-portraiture as well as landscape painting, establishes links between works from disparate periods, as d … More

BEIJING.- China Guardian Auctionlaunches the inaugural ‘Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale.’ Part of the 2021 Autumn Auctions in Beijing Guardian Art Center, this special evening auction includes highlights such as a rare and museum-quality ‘Water Lilies’ painting by Claude Monet, an early portrait by Paul Cézanne, an important landscape by Camille Pissarro, and a signature portrait by Pablo Picasso. With tracked provenance and well-established exhibition and literature records, all five works represent the artists’ bold exploration and pioneering practice. They are evidence of groundbreaking innovations in art history, new perspectives to view the world and the artists’ inner selves in the light of modern technology, and representation of the continuous breakthroughs in pursuit of innovation in human civilization. Bassin aux nymphéas, les rosiers, created in 1913, is exemplary of Claude Monet’ … More

BERLIN.- 31 October 2021 marked the opening of the expansive retrospective exhibition Helmut Newton. Legacy at the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin. Originally scheduled to coincide with the photographer’s 100th birthday, it was postponed for a year due to the pandemic. Visitors can now look forward to seeing not only Helmut Newton’s many iconic images, but also a number of suprises. The entire exhibition space on the first floor of the museum will chronologically trace the life and visual legacy of the Berlin-born photographer. With around 300 works, half of which are being shown for the first time, the foundation’s curator Matthias Harder will present lesser-known aspects of Newton’s oeuvre, including many of his more unconventional fashion photographs, which span the decades and reflect the changing spirit of the times. The presentation will be complemented by Polaroids and contact sheets that give i … More

The exhibition provides new insight into his creative process, including visual documentation of groundbreaking technical studies, which initially began in the Phillips’s Sherman Fairchild Conservation Studio.

PARIS.- “The city exists as a mass and is scattered in seeds, in gramen, but what raises and rouses these seeds, touches them, makes them spin, is the luminous palpitation of the beings who walk through it, these are the paths themselves”. Jean-Christophe Bailly. Each of the works in the exhibition “Urban Spirit” is like one of the seeds mentioned by Jean-Christophe Bailly: receptacles of germinating potential, urban experiences of ready to bloom. Through the works of twenty-one artists, the exhibition poses the question of what the ‘life’ of a city is. Whether panoramic or fragmented, the image of urban space is constantly charged by life, even when humans aren’t involved. The city is a body, with a nervous system and limbs. Like every being, it is traversed by the paradox of being inhabited by stability as well as movement, identity as well as change. It is a plurality, a community of destinies and subject to the vagaries of the lives that inhabit it. The exhibited works are inscribed in thi … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art announces Unicum, an exhibition featuring eleven works, seven artists, and five approaches to print-making. The show unites skilled print-makers – Mark Tobey, Frank Stella, Jim Dine, Elizabeth Murray, John Zurier, Kenny Scharf, and James Brown – to highlight the category of unique prints. Monotypes, trial proofs, and lithographs with hand-coloring are three of the techniques included in the exhibition. John Zurier’s 2017 monotypes emphasize a critical relationship between gesture and production. Monotypes require artists to transfer a painted surface – typically glass or metal – to paper before the image dries. The richness of Zurier’s final print depends on his application of ink, pressure, and speed. Near-monochromatic prints featuring gestural brushstrokes accentuate the dynamic between Zurier’s physical touch and proficiency of technological production. Trial proofs serve as an oppo … More

by Laurel Graeber

NEW YORK, NY (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Tracey Deer can still remember the sound of rocks hitting the car, her panicked mother’s orders to “Get down!” and the loud smash as a back passenger window shattered, showering glass over her screaming little sister. Deer, an Indigenous Canadian filmmaker, was only 12 on Aug. 28, 1990, when a white mob hurled stones and racial insults at vehicles filled with Mohawk women, children and the elderly, all trying to evacuate a reservation near Montreal. The Oka crisis, a dispute between Canadian authorities and the Mohawk people over land rights, was reaching its height, and the frightened children crouched on the floor until Deer’s mother could drive on. “My sense of safety was stolen from me,” Deer said. “My sense of self-worth, as of that moment, was nonexistent.” But after spending most of her adolescence consumed by anger, she said in a video interview, “I ended up finding a way to channel that instead into my drive to prove all those peopl … More

Daniel-1.jpgDaniel Dezeuze returns to Galerie Templon with a series of hybrid works
PARIS.- “Will the painting survive the extraordinary multiplication of screens? How can it resist the dispersed practices of contemporary art?” – Daniel Dezeuze. Daniel Dezeuze returns to Galerie Templonthis fall with a series of hybrid works lying at the intersection of painting and sculpture. Imbued with a more radical outlook than ever, Écrans/Tableaux: Variations continues to question the role, history and practice of painting and sets the stage for a new exploration, marked by the triumph of digital and proliferation of screens. The dichotomy between screens and paintings has fascinated Dezeuze since the 1960s.

Marvel-1.jpgMarvel’s ‘Eternals’ tops N.America box office despite mixed reviews
LOS ANGELES, CA (AFP).- Marvel’s new superhero film “Eternals” took in an estimated $71 million this weekend to top the North American box office, a strong pandemic-era opening if a bit below expectations, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations said Sunday. Written and directed by Chloe Zhao, fresh off her best-director Oscar win for “Nomadland,” the film faced some of the worst reviews of any Marvel film — the only one to draw a “rotten” rating on Rotten Tomatoes — but has fared well overseas, taking in an impressive $91 million. Led by actors Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden and Gemma Chan, “Eternals” tells the tale of an immortal race of aliens who emerge from several millennia in hiding to save the Earth from the evil Deviants. With “Eternals” gobbling up the biggest chunk of box office pie for the Friday … More

Filmfestiv-1.jpgFilm festival offers Tunisian inmates rare escape
TUNIS (AFP).- For the first time, three prison inmates in Tunisia were allowed a brief taste of freedom for the sake of art. The prestigious Carthage Film Festival offered the prisoners the chance to briefly escape confinement — under police supervision — to help make a documentary about the festival. “To be free, even for a while — nothing is more beautiful,” said one of the inmates, who gave his name as Nemss. The trio were chosen due to their “good behaviour, but also their audiovisual gifts”, said Tarek Fanni, the head of cultural programmes at the prison authorities. “It’s an important means of reintegration,” Fani said. The idea was the result of a collaboration between the film festival, the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) and the North African nation’s prison authority. Nemss, 30, who has already spent o … More

Fondation-1.jpgFondation HCB is presenting the exhibition of John Coplans “La Vie des Formes”
PARIS.- Fondation HCB is presenting a remarkable exhibition on the œuvre of John Coplans (1920‑2003), in collaboration with Le Point du Jour, Centre d’Art Éditeur in Cherbourg-en-Cotentin. Works on show here, on loan from French collections, testify to the audacity of this British artist, known for uncompromising representations of his body. Coplans, who emigrated to the United States at the start of the 1960s, was at first painter, art critic, museum director and curator before devoting himself fully to photography in the early 1980s. At sixty years old, after twenty years of promoting the work of other artists, he retired to take up a life in art. He then developed a photography practice in which he represented himself nude, in black and white and often fragmented, his head always out of frame. To all these images, produced bet … More

Julie-1.jpgJulie Green, artist who memorialized inmates’ Last Suppers, dies at 60
NEW YORK, NY (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Six tacos, six glazed doughnuts and a Cherry Coke: That was the last meal of a man executed in Oklahoma in July 1999. Rendered in cobalt blue glaze on a white china plate the next year, it was the first in Julie Green’s decadeslong art project, “The Last Supper,” which documented the final meals of death row prisoners around the country. To Green, who taught art at Oregon State University, their choices put a human face on an inhumane practice. Some requests were elaborate: fried sac-a-lait fish (otherwise known as white perch or crappie, it’s the state fish of Louisiana) topped with crawfish étouffée. And some were starkly mundane: two peanut butter cups and a Dr Pepper. She planned to paint the meals until capital punishment was abolished, or until she had made 1,000 plates, w … More

ALMATY.- According to the creator, this is the only sure and fair way to create tokens and implement your creations. The artist notes that any artwork he sells as an NFT will be kept by the buyer as a file. He will not receive the original. The original remains with the creator, as well as the feeling of incomplete transition of the work to the NFT format. “Such a new direction as NFT requires certain sacrifices from the artist, if, of course, he creates his artworks with the help of canvas and paints, and his artworks can be felt” – says the artist. Among the works of Vekhov there is an artifact – “Molbertine”. With the help of it all living things from our world enter the artist’s world – Melancholy. “In our ordinary world “molbertine” is me.

November 08, 1978. Norman Percevel Rockwell (February 3, 1894 – November 8, 1978) was a 20th-century American painter and illustrator. His works enjoy a broad popular appeal in the United States for their reflection of American culture. Rockwell is most famous for the cover illustrations of everyday life scenarios he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine for more than four decades. Among the best-known of Rockwell’s works are the Willie Gillis series, Rosie the Riveter, Saying Grace (1951), The Problem We All Live With, and the Four Freedoms series. He is also noted for his work for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA); producing covers for their publication Boys’ Life, calendars, and other illustrations. In this image: Laurie Norton Moffatt, director and CEO of the Norman Rockwell Museum, discusses the painting “Girl at Mirror”, Thursday, Nov. 8, 2007, in Akron, Ohio.

NEW YORK, NY.- With a very strong collection of archaic Chinese jades and Japanese weapons–two categories that rarely appear in large quantities at auction– Lark Mason Associates Asian Art sale, on igavelauctions.com, achieved $2,605,619 including buyer’s premium. Says Lark Mason, “The items uniformly had provenances from esteemed collectors or dealers and the results bore out the importance with the top lot, a Chinese Archaic Jade and Bronze Dagger, from the Shang/Early Western Zhou Dynasty, which sky-rocketed to $450,000 from its original estimate of $5,000-8,000. According to Mason, there was a 98% sell-through of Japanese swords from the collection of Dr. Bob Clemons including the Wakizashi Katana Set, which sold for $18,125, double the original estimate. Among the other pieces that soared above their estimates were: a Chinese strand of jade and turquoise beads, Liangzhu Culture, 3rd Millennium BC that fetched $150,000 over its $1,200 … More

Daguerreotype portrait of Henry Fitz Jr. Taken some time during January, 1840. One of the earliest surviving photographic portraits taken in America.

CINCINNATI, OH.- On November 15, Hindman Auctions will offer The Henry Fitz Jr. Archive of Photographic History. Forgotten since the 1930s, a cache of some of the earliest photographic portraits taken in America was recently discovered in an unheated shed near Peconic, Long Island. It has been heralded as a “national, if not international treasure” by Grant Romer, a photo historian and Curator Emeritus of the George Eastman Museum, the world’s recognized home of photographic history. The archive consists of 22 daguerreotype portraits of Henry Fitz Jr. (1808-1863) and his family taken between 1840 and 1842. The daguerreotype, a process used to capture an image on a silver-plated sheet of copper made sensitive to light, was introduced to the United States from France in the spring of 1839. A complete description of the process became available later that fall, and entrep … More

NEW YORK, NY.- René Magritte’s Torse nu dans les nuages (circa. 1937) leads Bonhams sale of The Collection of Amalia de Schulthess on Tuesday, December 7, in New York. The work, which has remained unseen for the last 70 years – and has never before been offered at auction – has an estimate of $6,000,000 – 9,000,000. Combining the classical and the deeply surreal, Torse nu dans les nuages includes two of René Magritte’s signature motifs: clouds and a female torso. The work dates from circa 1937, during the height of the Surrealist movement. It comes to Bonhams from the distinguished private collection of Amalia de Schulthess (1918-2021) and leads the dedicated single-owner sale of selected works from her impressive collection. Torse nu dans les nuages was notably included in the 1948 Magritte exhibition at the Copley Galleries in Los Angeles. Molly Ott Ambler, … More

VANCOUVER.- The Museum of Anthropology at UBC opened the exhibition Sankofa: African Routes, Canadian Roots, on display from November 4, 2021–March 27, 2022. The vital exhibition shines a light on the different ways of understanding the world through the lenses of African and Black communities by exploring the relationships between traditional and contemporary African art and Black Canadian contemporary art. The exhibition is a celebration of these diverse practices and the lasting legacy of African and Black Canadian artists. Sankofa is jointly curated by Nya Lewis, founder and director of BlackArt Gastown; Nuno Porto, MOA Curator, Africa and South America; and Titilope Salami, a PhD candidate at UBC’s Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory.

Paul Newman. Knopf plans to publish a book next year based on hours of recordings the movie star left behind, as well as interviews with family, friends and associates. Via Knopf via The New York Times.

by Elizabeth A. Harris

NEW YORK, NY.- Decades ago, actor and philanthropist Paul Newman, frustrated by all the unauthorized biographies and coverage of his life, recorded his own oral history, leaving behind transcripts that for years were forgotten in the basement laundry room of his house in Connecticut. Now his family has decided to turn those transcripts into a memoir, which will be published by Knopf next fall. “What he recorded, and in essence what he wrote, was so honest and revealing,” said Peter Gethers, an editor-at-large at Knopf who will edit the book, which does not yet have a title. “It showed this extraordinary arc, a guy who was very, very flawed at the beginning of his life and as a young man, but who, as he got older, turned into the Paul Newman we want him to be.” Newman — known for his … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Menconi + Schoelkopf, a leading gallery in the field of American art, presents Bluemner and the Critics, an exhibition of works composed of Bluemner’s paintings, drawings and watercolors, along with the artist’s extensive writings about his art in his diaries and notebooks.

NEW YORK, NY.- David Zwirner is presenting The Signpost, an exhibition of new paintings by German artist Neo Rauch. On view at the gallery’s 533 West 19th Street location, the presentation follows the artist’s 2019 exhibition Propaganda at David Zwirner Hong Kong, and marks Rauch’s first solo show at the New York gallery since his 2014 exhibition At the Well. Widely celebrated as one of the most influential figurative painters working today, Rauch is known for richly colored and elaborate paintings that contain a repertoire of invented characters, settings, objects, and motifs. At once realistic and familiar, enigmatic and inscrutable, his paintings often hint at broader narratives and histories—seemingly reconnecting with the artistic traditions of realism—yet they are dreamlike and frequently contain disparate and overlapping spaces and forms. As writer Thomas Meaney notes, “Rauch is known for … huge, dense … More

Lee Harvey Oswald’s US Marine Corps Rifle Score Book. Now At: $28,963 (12 bids)Estimate: $100,000+Ends on 11/10.

BOSTON, MASS.- RR Auction brings 1,100+ items to the auction block in our massive November Fine Autographs and Artifacts sale. Dominated by dozens of animation cels and production drawings, important John F. Kennedy manuscripts and memorabilia, and historic autographs from around the world, this is an impressive auction in its depth and breadth. Highlights include; Lee Harvey Oswald’s US Marine Corps Rifle Score Book (Warren Commission Exhibit No. 239). The 80-page softcover workbook issued on December 3, 1956, was filled out by Oswald. For the past 57 years many have claimed Oswald was a lousy shot and could not have killed Kennedy. These three test scores show otherwise. His above-expert level in three of five tests shows he was capable of assassinating President Kennedy either alone or had the appropriate background and capabilities if chosen by conspirators as a ‘patsy’.

tick-1.jpg‘Tick, Tick … Boom!’: A musical based on a musical about writing a musical. We explain.
NEW YORK, NY.- Lin-Manuel Miranda’s new film adaptation of “Tick, Tick … Boom!” is the musical version of “Rent” creator Jonathan Larson’s musical about writing a musical. To clarify, that musical is not “Rent.” (Yes, our brains hurt, too.) “Tick, Tick … Boom!,” which premieres Nov. 12 in theaters and Nov. 19 on Netflix, portrays Larson (Andrew Garfield) and his efforts to find success in his late 20s. The audience watches him struggle to write “Superbia,” a retro-futuristic musical, while he frets about whether he should choose a more conventional career. To help you keep “Superbia” (Larson’s never-produced musical) straight from “Tick, Tick … Boom!” (Larson’s autobiographical show about writing “Superbia”) straight from “Tick, Tick … Boom!” (the new film that tells Larson’s story), we’ve created this guide: Who was Jonathan Larson?

nara-1.jpgNara Roesler New York opens a solo exhibition by artist Tomie Ohtake
NEW YORK, NY.- Nara Roesler New York opened Visible Persistence: Tomie Ohtake (1957-2014) a solo exhibition by artist Tomie Ohtake (b. 1913, in Kyoto, Japan-d. 2015, in São Paulo, Brazil), curated by Luis Pérez-Oramas. The show proposes a selection of key works, embracing over 50 years of production, which together punctuate the defining phases in the artist’s career, offering a succinct retrospective of her oeuvre. With works pertaining to each of these fundamental periods, Visible Persistence: Tomie Ohtake (1957-2014) foregrounds the marked phases of the artist’s career, celebrating every stage in its distinction, but also stressing Ohtake’s drive to capture the density of space, color as a generative field, and the corporal experience of form. A paramount figure in Brazilian art during the second half of the 20th and the first decades … More

NEW YORK, NY.- On Tuesday, November 9 Swann Galleries will hold Contemporary Artists’ Books: The Property of a Texas Collector—an astonishing single owner auction of works, many known only via institutional copies. The sale includes an abundance of deluxe issues produced in small limitations often out of reach of even the most determined collector. Featured throughout the sale are considerable runs from artists including Kiki Smith, Sophie Calle, Raymond Pettibon, Richard Tuttle, Ed Ruscha and Sol LeWitt. Highlights include Ruscha’s Stains, Hollywood, 1969, which leads the sale at $50,000 to $70,000. Also by Ruscha is S, a unique found-object book sculpture from 1999 that utilizes Paul Hervieu’s Flirt ($20,000-25,000).

This exciting reinstallation of artworks connects the collection across place and time; features major loans from North Carolina and national and international museums; and showcases new, site-specific commissioned works, providing a more dynamic and accessible experience of the arts. “2022 marks the 75th anniversary of the North Carolina legislature’s setting aside state funds to start the People’s Collection, which belongs to the citizens of our state,” said Valerie Hillings, Museum director. “This transformative reinstallation expands upon … More

Drawing on a wide spectrum of photographic languages, including the family album, studio portraiture, staged tableaux, and appropriated images, Lawson’s posed photographs channel broader ideas about personal and social histories, sexuality, and spiritual beliefs. Featuring a selection of over fifty photographs from 2004 to the present, this exhibition features the full range of Lawson’s career to date and establishes for the first time a narrative arc of her expansive vision.

shewas-1.jpgShe was an organist for the ages
NEW YORK, NY.- Few musicians have faced a debut more intense than did organist Jeanne Demessieux. For years before her first concert — one of six she gave at the Salle Pleyel in Paris early in 1946 — her teacher Marcel Dupré had stoked rumors of her outlandish talent. “Jeanne Demessieux is the greatest organist of all generations,” Dupré, then practically the god of the French organ world, had declared in 1944. She would be, he predicted, “one of the greatest glories of France.” There was tremendous pressure, then, on this shy, workaholic, perfectionist prodigy, who had lived under what Dupré said was his “artistic protection” since 1936 — winning first prize in his class at the Paris Conservatory in 1941 and remaining his student and assistant after that. Pressure, too, from the imposing program of the first of her “six historic … More

reimag-1.jpgReimagined Gibney Company makes a long-winded debut
NEW YORK, NY.- Just before the pandemic, in January 2020, Gina Gibney, a choreographer and entrepreneur, announced that she was reinventing her dance company. Why, she wondered at the time, did New York City not have a company on the same level as a Nederlands Dans Theater or a Ballet BC? To be honest, that never really struck me as a problem. The aesthetic direction of those groups — choreography with slippery swirls and hollow gestures — wasn’t something I pined for. But Gibney has accomplished what she set out to do: She has established a contemporary repertory company of 12 dancers that made its debut at the Joyce Theater exactly when she planned for it to happen: now. On Tuesday, the Gibney Company presented three premieres, by Sonya Tayeh, the Tony Award-winning choreographer of “Moulin Rouge! … More

edie-1.jpgEdie Falco shines as an everywoman in ‘Morning Sun’
NEW YORK, NY.- Making the best of the little you’ve got may or may not be the theme of “Morning Sun,” the pianissimo new play by Simon Stephens that opened off-Broadway on Wednesday. But it’s certainly the problem. Not for Stephens is the big statement. His characters, linked in a maternal chain, are everywomen — or anywomen — positioned equidistantly along a conveyor belt between birth and death. Claudette is the tough one in her 70s, Charley the practical one in her 50s, Tessa the disillusioned one in her 30s. That they are identified by number in the script suggests their merely prototypical status. But unlike the lettered characters (A, B and C) in Edward Albee’s “Three Tall Women,” of which “Morning Sun” sometimes seems a less glittering variation, 1, 2 and 3 have self-consciously ordinary lives. Instead of Albee’s Park Avenue-ish boudoir, … More

eiffel-1.jpgEiffel Tower visitor numbers climb to pre-Covid levels
PARIS.- The Eiffel Tower is clocking up visitor numbers not seen since Covid-19 kept most tourists away and ripped a deep hole in its finances, the attraction’s operator said Thursday. A major paint job on the “Iron Lady” has resumed after an interruption during the pandemic due to high lead levels, it said, with the aim of having the landmark look its best in time for the 2024 Paris Olympics. The Eiffel Tower had “a good month of October”, operator Sete told AFP, thanks to tourists returning to Paris, a top destination. It received an average of more than 20,000 visitors per day in October, up from 13,000 during the summer when curbs kept down numbers allowed into the tower’s lifts. October weekend numbers were better than in 2019, Sete said. One big factor was the return of American tourists, who accounted for 10 percent of overall visits, as well as tourists from nearby European countries. … More

trash-1.jpgArt of trash: Feting South Africa’s overlooked waste pickers
JOHANNESBURG.- To many they are just filthy-looking jumbo bags bursting at the seams with recyclable waste wheeled along the streets of South Africa’s largest city. But now graffiti artists are giving them a makeover, spray-painting them with bold and bright designs to encourage bystanders to look up and notice the unsung work of the impoverished workers who pull them. “One of the biggest challenges is just for residents to make eye contact, to build some sort of relationship,” said Tamzyn Botha, one of the artists behind the initiative. Painting the bags is a “fun way to create some sort dialogue,” said the coordinator at Shade, a Johannesburg centre where artists buy recyclable material from the waste pickers. Across South Africa, thousands of “reclaimers” are helping the country recycle. Largely unemployed, they eke out a living by picking … More

Faultline

November 5 – December 4, 2021
Opening Reception Friday, November 5, 6 – 9pm
2245 E. Washington Blvd, Los Angeles, CA

François Ghebaly is proud to present Kelly Akashi’s third solo exhibition with the gallery: Faultline. The exhibition tracks the continual evolution of Akashi’s practice as she incorporates new photographic and craft traditions into her expansive practice.

Originally trained in photography, Akashi’s approach to sculpture consistently shows how materials can capture and render not only time, but emotional experience, interiority, and memory. She frequently uses cast bronze, blown glass, melting wax, and other materials that encode the passage of a moment. In Faultline, these materials are joined by new additions to her repertoire: carved stone, polished aluminum, and heirloom jewelry worn, loved, and gifted by her and her family. Taken together, the works pose biological and geological materials within a symbolic space of mind and memory.

The exhibition opens with a series of new crystalline photographs, produced through chemical processes of growth and fixity. Akashi grew crystals onto photographic film, then developed them using chemical techniques like silver gelatine, cibachrome, or chromogenic processing, capturing their quasibiotic structures in luminous images that she calls crystallographs. Akashi pairs these works with a gleaming column of polished aluminum, lying prone the length of her body and formed to a visualization of her pulse. Biometrics made physical, the work introduces the idea of the body segmented and diffused into inorganic materials, a dynamic also at play in Akashi’s cast hand sculptures. One is suspended in the next hallway, holding aloft an intricate sphere of flame-worked glass, sprouting vines and blossoms from within.

The sparse second gallery of the exhibition contains a single sculpture, a monument depicting the artist’s body carved into streaked marble. In this work as in others in her recent practice, Akashi draws on the Japanese notion of mono no aware, a gentle sensitivity to the state of impermanence and transience that underlies all things. Akashi heightens this attentiveness to ephemerality by showering the room with flower petals, which desiccate and decay over the course of the exhibition. The colorful scatter suggests a carnival or celebration as much as an untended memorial, emphasizing a sense of aftermath.

Entering the final room of the exhibition one is greeted first by the scent of earth. Four massive earthen forms support an array of new sculptures in a diverse range of materials, from cast crystal and carved stone to flameworked glass and heirloom jewelry. These works divulge a personal past in multiple ways. The heirloom objects speak to intergenerational passage and stand in for lineage and the delivery of familial knowledge. More directly to Akashi’s family story are materials that originated in Poston, Arizona, the site of one of the largest internment camps for Japanese Americans during the 1940s. This was the site of the Akashi family’s internment. The artist brought physical remnants from the site, including stones, fallen tree branches, and tumbleweeds, which she integrates into a number of sculptures. Throughout the exhibition, these works explore the sedimentation of experience and the layering of passing moments, passing lifetimes, and passing generations.

Kelly Akashi (b. 1983, Los Angeles) lives and works in Los Angeles. Her works are held in the permanent collections of Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Hammer Museum; and the Brooklyn Museum, among others. She has exhibited in solo exhibitions with Tanya Bonakdar, New York; ARCH, Athens; and SculptureCenter, New York; as well as in numerous group exhibitions including at Clark Art Institute; White Cube; Palm Springs Art Museum; the Jewish Museum; and David Roberts Art Foundation, among others. Next year she will present her first institutional solo exhibition in California at the San Jose Museum of Art, curated by Lauren Dickens. Faultline is her third solo exhibition with François Ghebaly.

Male Artists Dominate NFT Market, Welsh Museum Removes Slave Owner’s Portrait, and K-Pop Stars Draw Fans to Art Museums

November 4, 2021
Good morning.

  • The vast majority of NFT business is going to men, a report says.
  • A portrait of the notorious slave owner Thomas Picton has come down.
  • In South Korea, BTS and Blackpink members are luring fans into art galleries.

As always, please visit ARTnews.com for the latest news.

The Headlines
A DISPATCH FROM THE WILD WORLD OF NFTS. Male artists have a 77 percent share of the NFT market on the Nifty Gateway platform, according to a report from ArtTactic picked up by the Financial Times and the Art Newspaper . (This statistic is probably not entirely surprising for anyone who has glanced in the direction of the NFT market.) The lone woman to crack the top-ten artists is Grimes. In other NFT news, Vicereports that a collector claims that hackers stole his Bored Ape Yacht Club tokens, which he reckons were worth “over a million dollars,” and NBC News reports that actor Elijah Wood said that he sold tokens made by cartoonist George Trosley , whose early work has been criticized as racist, and donated proceeds to charity, including Black Lives Matter. Trosley has apologized for the works, and said that he made them to spotlight social injustice. Last but not least, Ocula writes that the APENFT Foundation—which aims “to promote the fusion of finance and art in the metaverse” (sure, why not?)—is hosting an open-call NFT contest with a grand prize of $20,000.

ROTTERDAM.- Normally museums exhibit only a small proportion of their collections, but the Boijmans Van Beuningen gallery in Rotterdam will this week become the first in the world to show off the lot. Housed in a huge mirrored, bowl-shaped depot attached to the museum in the Dutch port city, its collection of 151,000 artworks by artists including Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet will be accessible to visitors from Saturday. Dutch King Willem-Alexander will formally open the depot on Friday. “It is the only fully accessible depot, public depot that is open in the world,” museum director Sjarel Ex told AFP as media toured the building on Tuesday ahead of the opening. “What happens here is that you do not follow the script that was written by a curator… you see things by coincidence, and you feel that you are discovering things and that you connect things.” … More

Both a mantra and a quip, the title of Ella Kruglyanskaya’s first exhibition with Bortolami Gallery, Keep Walking, arms her trademark protagonists as they confront their audience with unabashed femininity. Drawing attention to the heightened plots of female sexuality and its mundanity alike, Kruglyanskaya’s painted bodies reenact and subvert the womanhood canonized in traditions of western painting and in visual culture, infusing gendered tropes with her brash and comedic approach to representation.

Buried shortly after AD 600, the West Norfolk hoard contains a total of 131 gold coins, most of which are Frankish tremisses, as there coins were not yet produced in East Anglia at this date.

LONDON.- A find of 131 gold coins along with four other gold objects dating to 1,400 years ago stands to be the largest find to date of gold coins from the Anglo-Saxon period in England. Currently, HM Coroner for Norfolk is holding an inquest to determine whether an important find of gold coins and other objects from West Norfolk constitutes Treasure under the terms of the Treasure Act (1996). To qualify as Treasure, any two or more coins which contain more than 10% of precious metal and which are more than 300 years old are defined as Treasure and are property of the Crown. Typically, the Crown only claims the find if an accredited museum wishes to acquire the find, and is in a position to pay a reward equivalent to the full market value of the find.

GLASGOW.- The fashion industry must prepare to eliminate waste and take radical stances such as ditching animal leather altogether, said British designer Stella McCartney. In an interview with AFP on the sidelines of the UN climate summit in Glasgow Wednesday, McCartney said that fashion houses must “swap out bad business with good business” for the sake of the planet. “Sadly we are one of the most harmful industries to the environment,” she said. “And I’m here to really kind of showcase the future of fashion and show everyone that basically there is another way and we have some solutions.” As the vegetarian daughter of Paul and Linda McCartney, she got a green head start in life, transferring her eco-friendly upbringing to fashion. Despite initial scepticism from peers, McCartney has never used leather products since entering the industry … More

LONDON.- South African playwright and novelist Damon Galgut on Wednesday won the 2021 Booker Prize for “The Promise”, his third shortlisted novel which chronicles a family in his homeland from the late apartheid era through to Jacob Zuma’s presidency. Spanning several decades, the book shows the family’s growing disintegration as the country emerges into democracy. “I am really profoundly, humbly grateful for this,” the 57-year-old said as he accepted the prestigious British award at a televised ceremony in London. “It’s taken a long while to get here and now that I have, I kind of feel that I shouldn’t be here,” added the author, who wrote his first novel aged 17. “The Promise”, about a white family with a farm outside Pretoria — where Galgut grew up — was tipped to land the prize ahead … More

NEW YORK, NY.- After a half century in the field, Kawase Shinobu is now regarded as Japan’s most outstanding artist working within the ancient tradition of celadon. In this latest dazzling body of work, Kawase moves beyond the ancient Song Dynasty models and showcases his brilliance on the wheel, paired with an unrivaled command of celadon glazes in a range of luscious and delightfully surprising colors. Having represented Kawase for decades, and witnessed his development and artistic growth, Joan B Mirviss LTD presents over thirty-five works that he created for his latest show that irrefutably declares his mastery of celadon.

PAJU.- In a new Korean drama being filmed inside a cavernous studio building outside of Seoul, a detective chases down a man cursed to live for 600 years. Pistol shots crack. A hush follows. Then, a woman pierces the silence, screaming: “I told you not to shoot him in ​the heart!” The scene was filmed several times for more than an hour as part of “Bulgasal: Immortal Souls,” a new show scheduled to be released on Netflix in December. Jang Young-woo, the director, hopes it will be the latest South Korean phenomenon to captivate an international audience. South Korea has long chafed at its lack of groundbreaking cultural exports. For decades the country’s reputation was defined by its cars and cellphones from companies like Hyundai and LG, while its movies, TV shows and music … More

SAO PAULO.- Brazilian artist Jaider Esbell, one of the leading figures in contemporary indigenous art, was found dead at age 41 in his home in Sao Paulo, authorities said Wednesday. Officials did not say what killed Esbell, a member of the Macuxi indigenous group from northeastern Brazil who rose to international fame with politically charged works on climate change, indigenous issues and the destruction of the Amazon rainforest. Esbell, who won Brazil’s prestigious PIPA prize for the visual arts in 2016, had recently sold two works to the renowned Pompidou Centre in Paris. His work currently features prominently in the Sao Paulo Biennial of Contemporary Art, including two inflatable, multi-colored snake-shaped sculptures on a lake that welcome visitors to the expo. “With clarity and generosity, he became one of the leading … More

Perrotin opens Xavier Veilhan’s exhibition Autofocus Exhibition spotlights Outsider art by self-taught Florida artists AIPAD announces new dates for 2022 Photography Show
perrotin-1.jpg

Xavier Veilhan, David n°1.

NEW YORK, NY.- Perrotin New York is presenting Autofocus, a solo exhibition by French artist Xavier Veilhan, on view through December 23, 2021. For Autofocus, Veilhan continues his experiments into movement and memory by conceiving a new scenario on Perrotin’s third floor, composed of a field of new figurative and architectural sculptures. Entering the exhibition, we encounter a scene frozen in time. Largescale mobiles hang from the gallery’s skylight, consuming the surrounding sculptures. Below, geometric shapes have attached onto blurred human forms and lifelike animals. However, the forms are softened; silhouettes hovering around the edges of our field of vision. The artist reduces body and form down to their most essential vocabularies, making them barely legible. Beneath, the artist has situated his sculptures onto a perfect cube, leaving our vision unimpeded and unaltered. Inspired by Sol Lewitt’s ‘Open Cube’ or Robert Morris’s mirror cubes, … More

New work by Hughes will be featured in the gallery’s presentation at Art Basel Miami Beach 2021, which will take place November 30 – December 4, 2021. Hughes uses dizzying brushwork, vibrant colors, and shifting perspectives to make paintings that defy many of the existing conventions associated with the landscape genre. Natural motifs and patterned elements recur throughout Hughes’s pictures: snake-like trees, floating moons, distorted reflections in bodies of water, and stippled night skies appear in various permutations, synchronized with harder-to-define forms in which abstract and representational impulses co-exist in unorthodox harmony. Hughes’s process … More

On a day like today, Italian painter Guido Reni was born
N_2021-11-04-flashback-6d0175a9-a271.jpg
November 04, 1575. Guido Reni (4 November 1575 – 18 August 1642) was an Italian painter of high-Baroque style. He painted primarily religious works, as well as mythological and allegorical subjects. Active in Rome, Naples, and his native Bologna, he became the dominant figure in the Bolognese School, and his eclectic classicism was widely influential.

PARIS.- A Paris museum on Tuesday exhibited over a dozen colonial-era treasures taken from Benin, the last time they will be shown in France before being handed back in a landmark gesture. The 26 pieces, from a trove of objects snatched by French forces in 1892, are being shown for just six days at the Quai Branly museum before being shipped to the West African country later this month. The decision to return them follows growing calls in Africa for European countries to return the colonial spoils from museums. The move is part of a drive by French President Emmanuel Macron to improve his country’s image in Africa, especially among young people. The treasures are from the kingdom of Dahomey in the south of present-day Benin and include the throne of Dahomey’s last king, Behanzin, as well as three totemic statues, four palace doors, several portable altars and three warrior dance staffs. Macron will visit the exhibition Wednesday afternoon. … More

NOTRE DAME, IN.- The Snite Museum of Art installed recent loans from the internationally renowned Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation. Three paintings dating from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, drawn from the Foundation’s extraordinary holdings, complement the Museum’s existing collection of Spanish Colonial works to expand our understanding of the period. This new loan follows an earlier one from the Thoma Foundation of thirteen works that were shown in the 2020 exhibition Divine Illusions: Statue Paintings from Spanish Colonial Peru, organized by Professor Michael Schreffler of the University of Notre Dame’s Department of Art, Art History & Design. In 2023 When the new Raclin Murphy Museum of Art debuts in 2023, the University will receive five different works from the Foundation to replace the three currently exhibited. Those loans are slated to extend through 2026. “The Thoma family have become very good, t … More

The treasures have until now been kept in “safe storage” at the Allard Pierson museum, which is the archaeological museum of the University of Amsterdam.

AMSTERDAM.- Dutch appeals judges on Tuesday ruled that a priceless collection of Crimean gold “must be handed over to Ukraine,” in a decision welcomed by Kiev but criticised by Russia. The pieces, dubbed “Scythian Gold” and loaned to the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam just before Moscow annexed Crimea in 2014, have been subject to legal wrangling since four museums on the peninsula launched a joint challenge seven years ago to have them returned. In 2016, a lower Dutch court ruled that the treasures were part of Ukraine’s cultural heritage and must be returned to Kiev — not to the museums who launched the petition — on the grounds that Crimea was not considered a sovereign state. The Crimean museums appealed the judgement. But on Tuesday, the Dutch court of appeal ruled that the gold should be held by Ukraine “pending stabilisation in the Crimea.” On Tuesday, the lawyer for the Crimea museums … More

WASHINGTON, DC.- While the National Museum of Women in the Arts undergoes a comprehensive renovation to its historic building, 11 highlights from its collection will be loaned to the National Gallery of Art. Works by women artists including Lavinia Fontana, Eva Hesse, Frida Kahlo, Clara Peeters, and Amy Sherald have been installed throughout the National Gallery’s iconic East and West Buildings. These special installations position NMWA’s paintings and sculpture in conversation with works from the National Gallery’s own permanent collection. “The National Museum of Women in the Arts’ mission to champion women artists never stops.

DAYTON, OH.- The Dayton Art Institute has announced the promotion of Elaine Gounaris to Interim Development Director for the museum. Gounaris served as the DAI’s Sponsorship & Special Events Manager for the past eight years. As Sponsorship & Special Events Manager, Gounaris has been the chief fundraiser for the museum’s three signature events–Bourbon & Bubbles, Art Ball and Oktoberfest–and helped raise more than $1.9 million in sponsorships for those events. She has also overseen the event management for both Art Ball and Oktoberfest, as well as helping develop and launch the popular Bourbon & Bubbles event, which sold out each of its first three years.

18th or 19th century Italian white marble torso of a youth ($35,000).

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Works in marble achieved marvelous results in Andrew Jones Auctions’ October 24th auction of The John Nelson Collection, Part I, which more than doubled its presale estimate to realize $1.6 million. Leading the sale were two magnificent life-size Italian Carrara marble models of dogs, both from the19th century, that brought $62,500. All prices quoted in this report are inclusive of the buyer’s premium. An Italian marble torso of a youth, circa 18th/19th century, achieved $35,000, while a pair of Roman marble lion head reliefs made $23,750 against an estimate of $2,000-3,000. Asian items featured a beautiful set of four Chinese hand painted wallpaper panels of birds amidst flowering branches ($12,500); and a Southeast Asian verdigris mixed alloy bust of the Buddha ($15,000). “I am beyond elated that the sale performed as fantastically as it did,” said Andrew Jones, the president and CEO of Andrew Jones … More

NEW YORK, NY.- The Studio Museum in Harlem, the preeminent institution dedicated to artists of African descent, today joined with civic leaders, trustees, artists, friends, patrons, and members of its vibrant community for Creating Space, a ceremony marking the next phase in the construction of the Museum’s new home on West 125th Street. New York’s Lieutenant Governor Brian Benjamin and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray joined Studio Museum Director and Chief Curator Thelma Golden, Sir David Adjaye (architect of the museum’s new home, with Cooper Robertson), and artists Theaster Gates and Yaw Agyeman for the celebratory event, held on the plaza of the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building, directly across 125th Street from the site where the new Studio Museum will rise. … More

DETROIT, MICH.- “If we knew how the gallery world worked, I don’t know that we would have jumped into it,” said JJ Curis, who, with her husband, Anthony Curis, founded an art gallery, the Library Street Collective, in 2012, in a once-derelict alleyway. But she feels their naïveté going into that first venture may have allowed them to conduct future business with an unconventional mindset. Now, hoping to contribute to the city’s artistic renaissance, the Curises have bought and restored the Good Shepherd Catholic Church and rectory from 1912 and are self-funding the redevelopment of the structures and surrounding land into a new cultural arts complex. Expected to open in spring 2023, the Shepherd, as it is now called, is conceived as a hybrid of a commercial gallery space, institution and community center. While the rapid redevelopment of downtown Detroit during the past decade has led … More

NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s presents Hidden Gems: The Collection of Dr. Thomas Chua to be sold across sales of Design, Jewels, and Impressionist and Modern Art. Dr. Thomas Chua established himself as a highly successful Medical Doctor who was deeply admired by his patients. As a devoted collector, Dr. Chua made time to develop his connoisseurship and curious eye for art. Dr. Chua aligned himself with a long history of Chicago-area collectors who were drawn to innovative examples of creative expression. Hidden Gems: The Collection of Dr. Thomas Chua illustrates the extraordinary vision of a collector who focused on the ethereal in nature, led by significant works of Design and Tiffany, to be sold in a series of live sales in December 2021 at Christie’s New York. Captured in the medium of glass, Hidden Gems explores the luminous and sculptural effects of the medium, from historic exhibition pieces by Emilé Gallé … More

DAMASCUS.- The Damascus bookshops and publishing houses that once stood as beacons of Syria’s intellectual life are being replaced with shoe shops and money changers, as culture falls casualty to crisis. Syria is home to some of the Arab world’s literary giants, and Damascus boasted an abundance of busy bookshops and publishing houses printing and distributing original and translated works. But the city’s literary flare has faded. A decade-old civil war, a chronic economic crisis and a creative brain drain that has deprived Syria of some of its best writers and many of their readers, have compounded worldwide problems facing the industry, such as the growing popularity of e-books. “People can’t afford to read and bookstores can’t cover the expenses of staying open,” said … More

Installation View: Sonia Gechtoff, The 1960s In New York: A Series of Transitions. All Artwork Copyright © Sonia Gechtoff Estate, Courtesy David Richard Gallery.

NEW YORK, NY.- David Richard Gallery presents Sonia Gechtoff (1926-2018), The 1960s In New York: A Series of Transitions, an exhibition that looks critically into this pivotal and transformative period following the artist’s move from San Francisco in 1958. Like the preceding decade, during the mid-1950s with Gectoff’s arrival in the Bay Area, the 60s were full of change and experimentation in New York. This presentation maps several such transitions, including: changes in Gechtoff’s painting medium and method of application; experimenting with collage and lithography; but most profound, the notable change of the imagery in her drawings and paintings. The presentation will include paintings and drawings, the mainstay of Gechtoff’s repertoire from the 1950s and 60s. Both media share strong relationships to one another … More

Painter David Kryemadhi chats with girls as he paints a portrait of one of them, in coffee in Durres, western Albania, on October 15, 2021. Gent SHKULLAKU / AFP.

DURRËS.- Albanian artist David Kryemadhi douses his brush with coffee and carefully sketches the face of a cafe customer, hoping the offer of a free portrait will bring cheer amid the anxiety of the pandemic. Many Albanians regard cafes as a vital institution and punctuate most days with caffeinated outings — the country of 2.8 million reputedly has one of the highest numbers of cafes in the world per head of population. “Art and coffee help a lot of people,” Kryemadhi told AFP in the seaside city of Durres. “The moment of calm and reflection while painting a portrait helps the other person gain self-confidence and see the world with a positive synergy, a more open eye.” Kryemadhi uses coffee like watercolour paints, composing portraits with a rich, brown patina — adding water to create different shades. In the cafes of Albania, he has found a natural … More

afg-1.jpgAfghan all-female orchestra keeps music alive in exile
DOHA.- For the first time in months, members of Afghanistan’s all-female Zohra orchestra have reassembled in Doha, their music once again filling the air as they face an uncertain future. While grateful to be safe in Qatar, their escape from Taliban rule is bittersweet, as the girls leave behind friends from the orchestra and their “old companions” — their instruments. Last week marked the first time in three months that Marzia Anwari, along with other members of the Afghan music community who escaped to Qatar, played live for an audience. “Most of the girls from the Zohra orchestra are here with me in Qatar, but some of them are still in Afghanistan,” the 18-year-old violist told AFP. “I hope that they can join us here as soon as possible and we can be together and rebuild our orchestra.” Zohra, Afghanistan’s first all-female orchestra, was established in 2016. … More

phantom-1.jpgAndrew Lloyd Webber plays the hits
NEW YORK, NY.- It was the reopening night of “The Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway, and Andrew Lloyd Webber was DJing the after-party. From a booth built earlier that day on 44th street in Manhattan, Lloyd Webber, the play’s composer, whose career has lasted decades and who has won four Tonys and an Oscar, mixed music, clapped on all four beats, waved his hands in the air, and bobbed his head before a crowd gathered outside. (He was sporting paprika-hued Beats by Dre headphones for the occasion.) The party followed the first performance of “Phantom” since the pandemic began, which was attended by Laura Linney, Joel Gray, several contestants of “The Bachelorette,” some “Real Housewives of New York” and Sen. Chuck Schumer. Outside the theater after the show, throngs of “Phantom of the Opera” devotees — known as “phans” — hoisted their phones … More

abric-1.jpgA BRIC in flux turns out an intimate, focused JazzFest
NEW YORK, NY.- As jazz festivals go, BRIC JazzFest is on the small but ambitious side, aspiring to a few ideas at once. It operates in Brooklyn with something close to Manhattan-scale resources, but like BRIC’s flagship music series, the Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, it aims to serve a broad audience, not a particularly affluent one. To a greater degree than Celebrate Brooklyn! — a series of mostly free summertime performances in Prospect Park — JazzFest spotlights artists who live and work in the borough, though it brings in some of the best from out of town, too. In the process, its organizers cut away at some of the hierarchical thinking that other jazz festivals, at various levels, often reinforce. After three nights of music this past weekend from across the borough’s varied landscape, it was in the closing moments that all these strands came together most effortlessly … More

broad-1.jpgBroadway’s ‘Is This a Room’ and ‘Dana H.’ to close early
NEW YORK, NY.- A pair of short experimental dramas that made an unlikely journey to Broadway this fall will close early, reflecting a tough climate for new plays as the industry seeks to recover from the lengthy pandemic shutdown. “Is This a Room” and “Dana H.” will end their runs on Nov. 14. They had been scheduled to close Jan. 16. “While we would’ve loved to run through our original end date, we recognize that we are in a challenging landscape for live performance and we’re grateful to have had a chance to share this work,” the producers, Dori Berinstein, Sally Horchow and Matt Ross, said in a statement Monday. The plays were jointly capitalized for up to $3.5 million, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. That money has not been recouped by investors. The reviews were strong for both works. “Is This a Room,” which is a verbatim re-enactment … More

Gabriel Ritter, an expert in Japanese modern and contemporary art and in museum studies, joins the campus from the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia).

mary-1.jpgMary Lattimore: Has harp, must travel
NEW YORK, NY.- Mary Lattimore made her public harp debut in an Arby’s parking lot. Her mother, Lelia Hall Lattimore, thought they might be late for her teenage daughter’s recital the moment they left their small North Carolina town for the state’s largest city, Charlotte. When a tire blew, she knew they were doomed. As they fished the harp from the trunk to retrieve the spare, Mom had an idea: Why didn’t her daughter play right there? As Mary Lattimore began to pluck 47 strings in her new floral-print dress, customers abandoned roast beef sandwiches. The tow-truck driver, Angel, marveled. Most customers had never heard a harp live, let alone in a fast-food parking lot. “I stepped out of my bratty teenager self and went for it. I was able to see the comedy, because playing the harp is fun,” Lattimore said by phone from her Los Angeles apartment as her cat, Jenny, meowed to be … More

sonny-1.jpgSonny Osborne, bluegrass innovator, is dead at 83
NEW YORK, NY.- Sonny Osborne, the banjo player and singer who, with his older brother, Bobby, led one of the most innovative and beloved bands in bluegrass music, died Sunday at his home in nearby Hendersonville, Tennessee. He was 83. His death, after a series of strokes, was confirmed by his friend and protege Lincoln Hensley. Best known for their 1967 hit “Rocky Top,” the Osborne Brothers pioneered a style of three-part harmony singing in which Bobby Osborne sang tenor melodies pitched above the trio’s other two voices, instead of between them, as was the custom in bluegrass. Sonny Osborne sang the baritone harmonies, with various second tenors over the years adding a third layer of harmony to round out the bright, lyrical blend that became the group’s calling card. The Osbornes broke further with bluegrass convention by augmenting Sonny Osborne’s driving … More

ballet-1.jpgBallet theater gives the stage to this pianist’s drag persona
NEW YORK, NY.- On a recent afternoon, inside one of American Ballet Theater’s studios near Union Square, John Epperson sat at a piano, unassuming in jeans and a muted button-down shirt. Epperson, 66, has been a pianist with the company off and on for several decades. But he may be better known as his alter ego: Lypsinka, a drag artist who has been on the scene just as long, dressed like a Stepford wife doll and miming sound bites arranged in an irreverent and slyly political supercut of classic Hollywood’s women on the edge. Stepping up from the piano and turning on a portable speaker, Epperson gave a preview of Lypsinka in action, shortly before heading downstairs to play piano for a class. He ran through a 10-minute act that will be presented at the David H. Koch Theater Wednesday and Saturday as part of Ballet Theater’s inaugural Pride Nights — the first … More
