NEW YORK, NY.- Paul Kasmin Gallery announces Max Ernst Big Brother: Teaching Staff for a School of Murderers on view at 515 West 27th Street, March 30 – May 13, 2017. At various moments throughout Ernst’s career, from his Cologne Dada period in the 1920s onwards, the artist turned to three-dimensional materials and sculpture in intense bursts of activity. The exhibition will feature Max Ernst's Corps enseignant pour une école de tueurs (Teaching Staff for a School of Murderers), conceived in 1967 at a pinnacle moment in Ernst’s career in which he fully committed himself to sculpture with fresh rigor. Comprised of three monumental bronze figures, the sculptures synthesize Ernst’s iconic use of language and sharp witticism that in turn transcend personal significance and make pointed commentary on the modern social and political climate. The trio’s central figure is Big Brother, taking its title from ... More

Lévy Gorvy present first London exhibition of Italian artist Vincenzo Agnetti   Exhibition surveys the work of African American women artists from the nineteenth century to now   Sperone Westwater exhibits new work by Helmut Lang

LONDON.- Lévy Gorvy presents the first exhibition in London of Vincenzo Agnetti, one of the most significant and influential Italian conceptualists of the twentieth century. The exhibition focuses on three bodies of work from the artist's diverse oeuvre—Axioms, Feltri (Felts), and Macchina Drogata (Drugged Machine)— which are key nodes of a sprawling practice that engaged the supple pliability of language with intensity and humor. Agnetti approached language as both content and material, depicting linguistic propositions and language-based abstractions with a signature esoteric streak. Seen as a whole, the artist's work shed light on new possibilities for art's engagement with philosophy and knowledge production: rather than illustrating theories and ideas, Agnetti sought to fully integrate idea and form. As an artist and writer, Agnetti was an active participant in various Italian ... More

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Sprüth Magers, Los Angeles, presents POWER, an exhibition curated by Todd Levin that surveys the work of African American women artists from the nineteenth century to now. Titled after the 1970 gospel song by Sister Gertrude Morgan, the exhibition begins with artists born soon after the Civil War and continues to the present, weaving together fine and folk art traditions to explore how artists have engaged issues of race, gender, and class against our evolving cultural and artistic landscape. The 37 artists in POWER draw into focus their struggle to establish themselves as equal players on the uneven field of the American republic. The exhibition traces two artistic threads that entwined to produce groundbreaking and evocative works across a range of mediums, which continue to influence artistic dialogue today. The first approach, rooted ... More

Helmut Lang, untitled, 2016.

NEW YORK, NY.- Sperone Westwater presents new work by Helmut Lang in the artist's second solo exhibition at the gallery. Since 2007, Lang has worked with found objects and readily available materials to create a dense, raw, and enigmatic body of work. Lang’s work is process-oriented, and the residue of his experimentation is left visible in the final product. The objects he creates have an intense physicality that evokes the human body and human condition while remaining essentially abstract. This exhibition showcases three new bodies of work created between 2015 and 2017. A series of floor sculptures and wall reliefs utilizing memory foam is displayed on the main ground-floor. These eccentric forms hover between abstraction and figuration, physical presence and absence, amputated or erased memories, as the materials he employs also often retain the impression of the human body. Knotted around themselves, the floor sculptures hint at ... More

WASHINGTON (AFP).- Gangsta rappers N.W.A's seminal debut, David Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust" album and the signature song from "The Wizard of Oz" will be preserved for posterity by the US Library of Congress. The world's largest library selected another 25 titles Wednesday for its National Recording Registry, which preserves original copies of works found to have historical importance. Among the recordings was "Straight Outta Compton," the 1988 first album by California rappers N.W.A who set off a nationwide storm with their protest song "Fuck tha Police." The Library of Congress in a statement said the album "signaled not only a seismic shift in rap from East Coast to West Coast sensibilities, but also a startling socio-political shot across the bow of the culture." Also entering the registry were two recordings of "Lift Every Voice and Sing," which in 1919 was declared the "Black ... More

STOCKHOLM (AFP).- Music icon Bob Dylan will finally receive his Nobel Literature Prize this weekend at a meeting with the Swedish Academy in Stockholm, it announced Wednesday. But no media will be allowed to cover the meeting, and the famously-reclusive Dylan will only give a lecture required of him in a taped version at a later date. The 75-year-old kept silent for weeks after he was announced as the Nobel literature laureate in October, and snubbed a ceremony in December to receive the prize. "The good news is that the Swedish Academy and Bob Dylan have decided to meet this weekend," Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the Academy, wrote in a blog post. "The Academy will then hand over Dylan's Nobel diploma and the Nobel medal, and congratulate him on the Nobel Prize in Literature." She added: "The setting will be small and intimate, and no media ... More

Collectors push Sandy Koufax mint rookie to top of Heritage Auctions' PSA Set Registry Auction   Exhibition of new work by Ciprian Muresan opens at David Nolan Gallery   Exhibition of new works by Teresita Fernández on view at Lehmann Maupin

1955 Topps Sandy Koufax #123 PSA Mint 9.

DALLAS, TX.- The Topps Company redefined the trading card collecting hobby during the 1950s, and two of the most coveted sets from that era were heavily pursued by the most condition-conscious hobbyists at Heritage Auctions' PSA Set Registry Auction in Dallas, which closed March 23. The 1955 and 1958 Topps sets, which rank second and fourth, respectively, on the PSA Set Registry, were sold as individual single-card lots in the Extended Bidding format sale. "It's a lot of hard work to build a top-five set," Heritage Sports Director Chris Ivy said, "but the joy is in the journey, and this auction stayed true to that principle." While set-builders played a leading role in the bidding, important rookie cards and Hall of Fame-condition rarities also drew considerable attention from collectors interested only in elite singles. Debut cards from such baseball immortals as Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Sandy Koufax, Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Roberto ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- David Nolan Gallery announces All Images from a Book…, an exhibition of new work by Ciprian Mureşan, the artist’s second solo show with the gallery. Bringing together a thematically interrelated group of works – albeit in characteristically diverse media – the exhibition will include a suite of recent drawings, a floor-bound sculpture, and a wall-mounted brass relief. Mureşan (b. 1977, Romania) is best known for his subtly subversive and darkly humorous work often touching on the failed ideals in the aftermath of Communist rule in Eastern Europe. In recent years, his conceptually oriented practice has involved drawing, printmaking, video, found-object sculpture and puppetry performance. In his newest body of work, the artist takes on the highly charged topic of artistic reproduction. For ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Lehmann Maupin is presenting Fire (America), an exhibition of new works by Teresita Fernández. The exhibition debuts a 16-foot glazed ceramic wall panel depicting a nocturnal landscape engulfed in flames, as well as a new series of abstract landscapes made from burned paper. Fernández is best known for her immersive installations and public projects that explore the various historical and psychological implications of the genre of landscape. In the Fire (America) series, Fernández uses images of fire to refer to contemporary American violence, as well as the technique of slash and burn used by indigenous people throughout the Americas to shape and cultivate the land. Contrary to the common fictitious narrative that the New World was a wilderness at the time of European contact, the technique ... More

Kunsthalle Bratislava opens exhibition year with an experimental international project
BRATISLAVA.- Kunsthalle Bratislava begins its 2017 exhibition year with an experimental international project titled Into The Mu. To attend the exhibition space of Kunsthalle LAB, the curator of the project Elisa Rusca invited four artists active abroad. The exhibition concept of Elisa Rusca, the Berlin-based curator, raises questions on the relationship between the absence and presence of a three-dimensional artwork, emptiness and its material expression within a gallery space. „The core concept „Mu“ in the eastern philosophy designates absence that fills up the volume. „Mu“ is presence through emptiness and it lierally means „nothing“, „non-existence“, or also some kind of state between the activity and inactivity. The exhibition Into the MU studies this concept of emptiness and its relevance today when we are constantly attacked by the ballast of information, signs, objects, pictures etc ... More

Francisco de Goya's "Los Caprichos" on show at the Art Museum Riga Bourse
RIGA.- The exhibition “Francisco de Goya (1746–1828). Los Caprichos” is on show at the Art Museum RIGA BOURSE in Riga (6 Dome Square) from 25 March to 16 July 2017. The exhibition introduces us to one of the world’s most famous art masterpieces – brilliant Spanish artist Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (1746–1828) Los Caprichos series of graphics. The album, containing 80 pages of graphics, compiled and published by the artist himself in 1799, gained popularity in Spain and elsewhere soon after its publication, captured the quintessence of de Goya’s style, reflecting a new, freer, and much more expressive approach to reality’s portrayal. Los Caprichos reverberated in 19th century art and ended the dominance of Neo-Classicist academic style graphics. There are many unsolved riddles hidden within the series. It has been assumed that the artist was influenced ... More

French 'human hen' artist has a crack at hatching eggs
PARIS (AFP).- The French artist who spent a week entombed inside a rock began an even more bizarre feat Wednesday -- sitting on a dozen eggs until they hatch. Abraham Poincheval aims to become a "human hen" by sitting and laying on the eggs inside a glass vitrine at a Paris modern art museum until the chicks emerge. The performance, called "Egg", could last three to four weeks, with the artist getting only a half-hour break every 24 hours to keep him from cracking. He is also on a special diet rich in ginger so he can keep the eggs at a minimum of 37 degrees Celsius (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit). Poincheval, 44, made headlines earlier this month after declaring his seven days inside a rock a mind-altering "trip". This time, however, he looked distinctly ill at ease as he stepped into the vitrine in the Palais de Tokyo museum in his socks. ... More

ATLANTA, GA.- Asian lots took center stage at Ahlers & Ogletree’s March 25-26 Spring Salon Auction, as a monumental classical painting attributed to Ming painter Qiu Ying (Chinese, 1494-1552) soared to $112,500, and a pair of Chinese huanghuali hardwood side tables made in the first half of the 20th century made $26,550. Overall, the auction grossed approximately $900,000. Bidding was brisk at the two-day weekend sale, with the total of in-house, phone and absentee bidders numbering close to 600 (absentee and phone bids executed fell just shy of 800). But the real action was online, via (9,563 registered bidders), (2,855 registered bidders), Bidsquare (142 registered bidders) and the A & O app (340 bidders). Headlining the event was the estate of Anne Eng, owner of Trader Eng’s and House of Eng in Atlanta; the private collection ... More

Jackie Kennedy's intimate letters with UK diplomat sold at auction
LONDON (AFP).- Letters written by Jackie Kennedy to a British diplomat rejecting his marriage proposal years after the assassination of her husband, US president John F. Kennedy, were sold in a London auction on Wednesday. The correspondence between Kennedy and David Ormsby Gore, Britain's ambassador to the US during Kennedy's presidency, show her explaining her reasons for not wishing to wed the former diplomat. "We have known so much & shared & lost so much together -- Even if it isn't the way you wish now -- I hope that bond of love and pain will never be cut," she wrote to Ormsby Gore after his proposal in 1968. "You are like my beloved beloved brother -- and mentor -- and the only original spirit I know -- as you were to Jack," she added. The letters are part of a larger cache of papers found at Ormsby Gore's family home, including correspondence ... More

Exhibition focuses on the complex and emotive theme of migration and its life-altering power
LONDON.- This latest Asahi Shimbun Display focuses on the complex and emotive theme of migration and its life-altering power. Moving stories: three journeys addresses migration by focusing on the million-year-old story told in footprints discovered at Happisburgh in Norfolk, and a story of exile in the contemporary work Ali’s Boat diary 1 by Iraqi artist Sadik Kwaish Alfraji. To help frame these journeys, the display includes excerpts from the poetic documentary, One World in Relation, directed by Manthia Diawara. The film follows Édouard Glissant, an inspirational poet and philosopher from Martinique on the third journey of this display: one of intellectual reflection and discovery. The Happisburgh footprints were discovered in 2013 by a team of scientists led by the British Museum. The footprint surface was exposed at low tide as heavy seas removed the beach ... More

Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art opens exhibition of works by German artist Elger Esser
LONDON.- Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art is presenting an exhibition of photographic works by German artist Elger Esser. This exhibition, his first solo show in a public institution in the United Kingdom, focuses on a new series of works, entitled Morgenland, created during his travels in the Eastern countries of Lebanon, Egypt and Israel from 2004 to 2015. Shown for the first time at Parasol unit, the Morgenland (morning land) series refers to the concept of the Orient or the East. Rather than reflecting a negative stereotypical ‘Orientalism’ with its links to cultural colonialism, as discussed by Edward Said in his 1978 seminal book on the subject, Esser’s depictions of the Near East aim to convey a sense of reconciliation amidst regional differences and historical issues. Travelling along the Lebanese shore in 2004 and the Nile between Luxor and Aswan in 2011, ... More

Contemporary Curated with Choreographer Michael Clark



On a day like today, Spanish painter Francisco Goya was born
March 30, 1746. Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (30 March 1746 - 16 April 1828) was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns. Goya was a court painter to the Spanish Crown, and through his works was both a commentator on and chronicler of his era. The subversive imaginative element in his art, as well as his bold handling of paint, provided a model for the work of later generations of artists, notably Manet, Picasso and Francis Bacon.
