SOUTHAMPTON, NY.- Jeff Lincoln Art + Design debuted “The Organic Impulse in Contemporary Sculpture, Art and Design” Memorial Day weekend at the gallery’s Old Power Station location in Southampton and will run through July. “This wide-ranging show examines the powerful influence nature and organic structures have on artists and designers and how it is revealed in their work. Cutting across mediums and disciplines, the impulse of the organic sensibility informs the work of various artists included in the show, notably among them Yayoi Kusama, Carl Andre, Al Held, Per Kirkeby, and seminal abstract expressionist sculptor Raoul Hague,” says gallery owner Jeff Lincoln. The design component of the show seeks to inform the viewer on the dynamic relationships between art and design as explored through an organic sensibility as ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Dia Art Foundation announced today that it has expanded its collection of art from the 1960s and 1970s by adding works by two new artists from Asia—Lee Ufan and Kishio Suga. Both of these artists are considered to be key members and vocal proponents of the Mono-ha movement that emerged in Japan in the 1960s. These acquisitions will introduce the materials and techniques of Mono-ha into Dia’s permanent collection. Mono-ha’s emphasis on natural and man-made materials aligns with the interests of Arte Povera, Land art, and Minimalist art, which are movements that form the foundation of Dia’s collection. The addition of works by Lee and Suga incorporates intellectually and historically connected practices that emerged in conversation with, but distinct from, ... More

PARIS.- Christie’s France announces the sale of the collection of Alberto Pinto (1943–2012), unique elements from his Parisian apartment, which will take place in Paris on 12, 13 and 14 September during the Biennale des Antiquaires. After having studied at the École du Louvre in Paris, Alberto Pinto set off for New York City where he created a photo agency specialising in architecture and decoration. Over several years Alberto developed his taste for interior design, notably when he had the chance to do photo shoots for Condé Nast. At the end of the 1960’s, Alberto Pinto personally designed the interior of his own New York apartment. A rush of requests to do others follows, leding him to create his interior design firm in Paris in 1968, where, according to him, you can find the most skillful and talented artisans and craftsmen. As a master ... More

The first solo exhibition of Agnetti in New York in over twenty-five years, Territories, which was presented in London earlier this spring, celebrates Lévy Gorvy’s new collaboration with the Archivio Vincenzo Agnetti Milan.

HELSINKI.- The Ateneum Art Museum has acquired eight new sculptures for its collection during spring 2017. Of the works acquired, the sculptor Heikki W.

The recently acquired works demonstrate the diversity of sculpture. Between 1964 and 1970, Heikki W. Virolainen created a series of wooden sculptures, themed around the Kalevala epic, painted with ... More

Erskine, Hall & Coe opens off-site exhibition of works by Claudi Casanovas at Fitzrovia Chapel   Julien's Auctions names Tim Luke Executive Director, Contemporary and Street Art   Museum Frieder Burda opens exhibition of works by Rodney Graham

Claudi Casanovas, Nimfa (Nymph), 2017. 85 x 90 x 50 cm.

LONDON.- Claudi Casanovas’s third solo exhibition with Erskine, Hall & Coe opens today. This is the first occasion that the gallery holds an off-site exhibition, and it takes place within the historic Fitzrovia Chapel. This exhibition presents the final instalment, Quart Minvant, of a body of work that began with Lluna Nova in 2013 and included Quart Creixent in 2014. “Quart Minvant (Waning Crescent) explores the notion of emptiness. The pieces refer to a metaphorical journey, a moment in balance, which ultimately alludes to life: life in its final evanescence and its promise of completeness.” --Claudi Casanovas. Claudi Casanovas was born in Catalonia in 1956. He studied theatre in Barcelona and subsequently trained as a ceramicist in the Catalan city of Olot. He was a member of the Coure Potters' Cooperative from 1978 until 1987, and in 1992 he won first prize at the III ... More

BADEN-BADEN.- The decision to place one’s biography at the service of art is always a decision in favor of a certain role. The dandy or the Bohemian, the accomplice of the downtrodden or the courier of the privileged – as with all professions, being an artist is accompanied by its own clichés. The Canadian artist Rodney Graham is a virtuoso when it comes to staging these role images – and at the same time, he investigates how individual identities can form from socially ascribed roles. Profession as an obsession. And always in the lead role: himself. His medium: the classic advertising light box. Thus, the meticulously staged antique dealer or the modern cowboy becomes his own advertising medium. But behind the smooth, shiny surface of illuminated photography, behind the perfectionist scenography, there always lurks ... More

Best & Boldest #3: Prem Sahib – Balconies, exhibition view, Kunstverein in Hamburg, 1.7. – 3.9.2017. Courtesy: The artist and Southard Reid. © Fred Dott.

HAMBURG.- The Kunstverein in Hamburg is presenting the first solo exhibition in Germany, of the British artist Prem Sahib (b.1982, London, UK, lives and works in London). Sahib predominantly works with sculpture and draws on the aesthetics of public and personal spaces. Industrial materials and simplified geometrical shapes are reminiscent of Minimal Art. However in contrast to Minimalism, Sahib is not only focused on objectivity, and logic; his sculptures are also charged with personal experiences, symbolism, emotions, and subjectivity. Their clearly contoured, schematic, exterior forms stand in contrast to the very personal content. His work frequently references the human body and human touch as well their absence. For Balconies a new series of works maneuver the fragile intermediate area between the public and private sphere. The exhibition Balconies activates various spatial registers ... More

Royal car with extendable handbag tray for sale with H&H Classics
LONDON.- In 2001 it was decided that a new car was needed for HM The Queen’s personal use and to serve as a Royal relief vehicle. It had to be luxurious yet understated. The answer was a 2001 Daimler Majestic 4.0 LWB built to bespoke specifications for the personal use of Her Majesty. This car was in Royal service from June 2001 to January 2007 and has done 1,400 miles since being retired from the Royal household and just 15,400 from new. Every British monarch has been chauffeured around in, or has driven if they so wished, Daimlers since 1902 when King Edward VII granted the Coventry marque a Royal Warrant. Rolls-Royce and latterly Bentley may have become the preferred source of state limousines post-WW2 but Daimler remained happy to furnish the Royal Mews with less ostentatious conveyances that were better suited to private motoring.

'Making Heimat: Germany, Arrival Country' on view at Deutsches Architekturmuseum
FRANKFURT.- The exhibition Making Heimat. Germany, Arrival Country, which DAM created and curated for the German Pavilion at the 15th International Venice Architecture Biennale, is presented on two floors at the DAM and features updated and expanded subject matter as well as documentation and a review of the German Pavilion in Venice. The exhibition responds to the fact that in 2015 the German borders were left open for around 1 million refugees, and prompts reflection about Germany as an open immigration country. In close cooperation with Doug Saunders, eight theories about “Arrival Cities” were devised that aim to trigger a change in the way we view immigrant neighborhoods. While providing their inhabitants and new arrivals with the most important conditions for them to be able to settle down and become integrated, these have for the most part ... More

New Van Dyck painting on display at the Ashmolean
OXFORD.- The Ashmolean now has on long-term loan a new painting by Flemish portrait painter, Anthony Van Dyck (1599–1641). The portrait of Elizabeth Howard, 1st Countess of Peterborough, is on display in the Mallett Gallery of European Art (Gallery 44) alongside other portraits by Van Dyck, Thomas Gainsborough and Joshua Reynolds. Painted around 1638 it demonstrates Van Dyck’s skill in depicting the wealthy British aristocracy. Elizabeth Howard, reputedly a great beauty, is dressed in lavish silk and lace and is wearing pearl and diamond jewellery which is painted with particular delicacy. She was married to John Mordaunt, 1st Earl of Peterborough (about 1598–1642) who had been educated at Oxford. It is therefore appropriate that the portrait of his wife is now on display in the Ashmolean Museum. Mordaunt later joined the court of the Prince of Wales, the later ... More

Claude Debussy's rediscovered score for Hymnis



On a day like today, Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo died
May 11, 1593. Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527 - July 11, 1593) was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books – that is, he painted representations of these objects on the canvas arranged in such a way that the whole collection of objects formed a recognizable likeness of the portrait subject. In this image: Visitors look at paintings called Winter 1573, left, and Water 1566, right, at the exhibition of Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, 1527 - 1593, in Paris Thursday, Sept. 13, 2007.
