Vincent van Gogh's inner circle explored in new exhibition in the artist's homeland

Under the watchful eye of curators Helewise Berger and Sjraar van Heugten, the last painting for 'Van Gogh's Inner Circle' is installed at the Het Noordbrabants Museum, Den Bosch, Netherlands. © photo: Jan-Kees Steenman.

DEN BOSCH.- With the exhibition of Van Gogh’s Inner Circle. Friends, Family, Models Het Noordbrabants Museum counters the persistent notion that Van Gogh (1853-1890) was a lonely, tormented soul who received little credit, respect or recognition for his work in his own age. In actual fact, this is beyond the facts. Vincent van Gogh was by no means an easy person and his abruptness, almost obsessive commitment and critical eye could ward off those around him. Yet, many also greatly appreciated him. All his life he kept in close and often long-lasting contact with his friends, family, models, fellow artists and lovers. Van Gogh’s Inner Circle offers a host of information about Vincent’s friends and family by presenting 99 well-known and lesser-known paintings, sketchbooks, works on paper, photos and letters. The exhibition has been curated by guest curator and Van Gogh expert Sjraar van Heugten, in close collaboration ... More

Avant-garde rocker John Cale revisits his classics   Disabled Poles take their struggles to the stage   Hauser & Wirth exhibits drawings by Eva Hesse from the Allen Memorial Art Museum

LOS ANGELES.- A maestro of avant-garde rock who co-founded the famed Velvet Underground with Lou Reed and hobnobbed with Andy Warhol, Welsh musician John Cale is not one for a traveled path. "No matter where I go, I was more interested in how I get there," he says. "I wanted to take part in the natural evolution of music." Cale is still at it as a 77-year-old with an imposing stature -- set to play three shows at the Philharmonie de Paris next week -- and met with AFP at his rehearsal studio hidden in a labyrinthian building in downtown Los Angeles. Surrounded by his instruments -- piano, guitar and violin -- Cale describes the high-octane New York of his youthful career in the early 1960s. "It was a cultural revolution going on," he says. "Everybody was doing something, everybody's making films, or making concerts or whatever, on the street, you know, in homes, in lofts." "It was the heart of the artistic reactor." A fan of French composer Erik Satie ... More

(AFP).- A troupe of actors with Down Syndrome in Poland is taking the fight for disabled rights to the stage in a new play that lashes out at politicians, accusing them of neglecting the welfare of citizens with disabilities. Titled "The Revolution That Never Was", the play recounts how a group of young Poles with disabilities staged an unprecedented sit-in protest in the Polish parliament last year. They slept on the floor of a corridor for 40 nights in a bid to persuade the right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) government to boost their meagre living allowance and benefits for their caregivers. Known for generous social spending on child allowances and retirement pensions, the government has moved to improve benefits for Poland's estimated 272,000 citizens with disabilities ahead of October's general election. Down Syndrome is the most common genetic form ... More

Richard Forster, Notes on Architecture: The Times Business Pages, June 18 2018, 2018.

LONDON.- Timothy Taylor announced representation of British artist Richard Forster (b.1970, UK). The gallery will present Forster’s first solo show, Notes on Architecture in London this November, which was first shown earlier this year at FLAG Art Foundation in New York. Forster’s meticulously detailed drawings appear as trompe l’oeil newspaper clippings and photographs, referencing diverse themes of nostalgia, the socio-political climate and architecture. Although almost photo-realistic upon first inspection, on closer viewing, the compulsively rendered works break down into abstract mark-making, combining collaged elements such as masking tape, gouache and watercolour with found surfaces to create subtle tonal shifts and textures. Presented both chronologically and within grid sequences, Forster’s small-scale works reflect his own personal experience of the world, carefully documenting the nature of time ... More

LONDON (AFP).- Treading her way along the muddy banks of the River Thames, Lara Maiklem spots a 16th-century clothespin which she wipes and adds to a row of others puncturing her coat pocket. She treasures these handcrafted metal pins and other discoveries along the shore for the insight they give into those who walked there before her. "Mudlarks" have scoured the foreshores of London's rivers for centuries, searching out lost or discarded items to sell, and the tradition lives on today in a small band of devotees. Over the past two decades, 48-year-old Maiklem has found pottery, a silver coin from the 1600s from the era of king Charles I, ivory combs and 18th-century clay pipes, some still bearing the makers' fingerprints. "These little snapshots of everyday London life, that you find coming out of the mud, every tide -- it's like a giant history book," said Maiklem, who works in the publishing industry. Many of the rivers, streams and brooks that cut through London ... More

Giant construction project takes shape in remote North Korea
SAMJIYON (AFP).- Like a scene from an epic film, thousands of workers swarm over the building sites of Samjiyon, a monumental construction project in the far reaches of North Korea ordered by leader Kim Jong Un. They clamber over wooden scaffolding and dangle from window frames, and whether they are carrying loads, sifting sand or mixing concrete, most of the work is carried out by hand. The plan involves nothing less than the rebuilding of the entire town of Samjiyon, the seat of a county that includes the supposed birthplace of Kim's father and predecessor Kim Jong Il, and Mount Paektu, the spiritual birthplace of the Korean nation. It encompasses a museum of revolutionary activities, a winter sports training complex, processing plants for blueberries and potatoes -- two of the area's most important crops -- a new railway line to Hyesan, ...

Peter Saul's most comprehensive exhibition to date opens at Les Abattoirs
TOULOUSE.- This retrospective, the most comprehensive exhibition to date, by American artist Peter Saul (born in 1934), spans the career of one of the very last contemporaries of Pop Art, from the late 1950s to the present day. Peter Saul: Pop, Funk, Bad Painting and More brings together a collection of unprecedented scope, featuring more than a hundred works (paintings, works on paper, etc.), some of which will be shown for the first time, as well as a collection of archives. Who is Peter Saul? For many, this American painter is one of Pop Art’s founding fathers. For others, he is one of the creators, in the late 1960s, of Funk art, but also a pioneer of Bad Painting in the 1980s. Today he is still a major influence on several generations of artists. Surprisingly, his career began in Paris in the early 1960s. It was there that the artist created his first collages ... More

Matthew Raw's newest ceramic pieces talk landscape, Brexit and more
PLYMOUTH.- This September, the Gallery at Plymouth College of Art plays host to Matthew Raw’s second solo show. Tactile Change is a display of contemporary ceramics inspired by the themes of migration and progress, a meditation on borders in the post-Brexit landscape – and a response to the history of Plymouth Zoo. Raw’s work uses tile and clay to explore how human landscapes evolve with communities that inhabit them. His first solo exhibition in 2017, ‘Clad’, looked at the social evolution of East London. Now the artist turns his eyes – and his hands – to Plymouth, where he will be interpreting the story of the city and its short-lived zoo in clay. “Plymouth is a hub for contemporary arts within the southwest. It has been a privilege to commission an artist as accomplished as Matthew to develop his personal response to the history of the city, as his second national solo ... More

The Orlando Museum of Art acquires two new works by leading contemporary artists
ORLANDO, FLA.- The Orlando Museum of Art announces the acquisition of two new works, one by internationally renowned artist Shirin Neshat, and one by celebrated mid-career artist Deborah Roberts. Shirin Neshat (Iranian, b. 1957), who is acclaimed for her work exploring the complexities of gender, religion, cultural values and democracy in the Middle East, has lived in exile in New York since the Islamic revolution in Iran in 1979. She gained prominence in 1995 with her iconic series of black and white, calligraphy-overlaid photographs. Neshat’s Nida (Patriots), from The Book of Kings series (2012) is inspired by the 60,000-verse poem "Shahnameh" written in the 11th century by the Persian poet Ferdowsi, and which narrates Persian history up to the Islamic conquest of Persia in the 7th century. Shirin Neshat relates this ancient book to the Arab ... More

Posthumous Leonard Cohen album set for November release
NEW YORK (AFP).- A posthumous album entitled "Thanks for the Dance" from Leonard Cohen is set for release this fall, Sony announced Friday. To tease the November 22 record his label released "The Goal," a brief, quasi-spoken word track that features piano and acoustic guitar and is based on the Canadian icon's poem of the same name.
