NEW YORK, NY.- Gagosian presenting rarely seen sculptures by John Chamberlain. Following the New York showings of “New Sculpture” at Gagosian in 2011, as well as “Choices,” his 2012 retrospective at the Guggenheim, the current exhibition highlights a series of steel masks, the majority of which are on view for the first time since their creation in the 1990s, as well as abstract wall sculptures made between the 1970s and 2000s. Best known during his lifetime for his distinctive metal sculptures, often made of crushed and torqued automobile steel, Chamberlain used the detritus of American industry to create works that contain the bold energy of Abstract Expressionism, the pre-manufactured elements of Pop and Minimalism, and even the provocative curves and swells of the High Baroque. His multidimensional ... More

MUNICH.- For the fifth edition of Der Öffentlichkeit - Von Den Freunden Haus der Kunst American artist Sarah Sze created “Centrifuge”, a new site-specific installation that radically transforms visitors’ perception and experience of the museum’s Middle Hall. “Centrifuge” commences at a fixed point. Sze has carefully organized constructed and off-the-shelf objects into a series of sculptural groupings. These objects, arranged around the installation’s centre, recall subatomic particles morphing and evolving within a quantum field, while also mimicking the transmutation of cells and organisms within biological life. Arranged as agglomerations, the material dynamically morphs outwards into the surrounding space, literally exploding the perceptual field within the Middle Hall. Yet, the installation seems to be caught between growth and decay ... More

Famed Ausrox gold nugget, third largest in existence, returns to Perot Museum   Gagosian Rome opens exhibition of new works by Davide Balula   Loring Randolph appointed Artistic Director of the Americas of Frieze Art Fairs

Three prospectors in Australia uncovered this “rock star” treasure in 2010 using a metal detector.

DALLAS, TX.- It’s back!! One of the world’s most famous gold nuggets has returned to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas. The Ausrox Gold Nugget, a true rock star in the gem and mineral world, was on loan as part of the original collection that debuted in the Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall when the Museum opened to the public in December 2012. In 2015, the precious mineral headed south to the Houston Museum of Natural Science but is now back in all its glittering glory. Incredibly, this treasure, found in the Eastern Goldfield of Australia, was discovered by three prospectors using a hand-held metal detector. “This is the remarkable story of three miners who, back in 2010, were in the wilderness of Australia armed with just a metal detector and a small tractor. Imagine their shock coming upon a piece of gold about the size of a basketball and weighing over 50 pounds  ... More

ROME.- Gagosian is presenting “Iron Levels,” new works by Davide Balula. This is his first exhibition in Rome. At once surreal, comical, and critically engaged, Balula’s works examine the intersection of philosophy, phenomenology, and physics. For the Rome gallery, he has created an experiential trajectory that responds directly and specifically to the architecture. On entering the exhibition, visitors pass through a sculptural metal detector. A ubiquitous instrument of search and verification, the metal detector makes private belongings into objects of suspicion or potential threat. Its purpose is to reveal the metal, non-bodily material we carry with us each day—keys, coins, cell phone—that which we habitually treat as extensions of the self. The metal detector functions as a portal, further separating the idealized ... More

WILLIAMSBURG, VA.- While the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg are filled with extraordinary collections of works of fine, decorative and folk art, a common thread connects them: they each help to tell the story of America and its people, especially in the nation’s early days.

Earl (c. 1788-1838) marking the first illustration of any kind from Tennessee to join the Colonial Williamsburg collections.

Reiss, president and CEO of Colonial Williamsburg. “Owning pieces of material culture from ... More

Exhibition of new works by the British artist Celia Paul opens at Victoria Miro
VENICE.- Victoria Miro is presenting an exhibition of new works by the British artist Celia Paul. Made especially for the Venice gallery, the portraits and waterscapes on display offer touchstones for thoughts about time, transience, spirituality and mortality.

She is renowned for her intimate depictions of people and places she knows well. From 1977 to 2007 Paul worked on a series of paintings of her mother, and since then she has concentrated on painting her four sisters, especially her sister Kate, as well as a number of close friends.
