Ric Ocasek, frontman and lead singer of New Wave innovators The Cars, was found dead on September 15, 2019, police said.

Lily Fein, Untitled #1, porcelain with Oxide Glaze, 16.75 x 8.5 x 8.5 in.

CONCORD, MASS.- Lacoste Keane Gallery is presenting: The Vessel Re-Imagined from September 7 –28, 2019, an exhibition exploring the vessel form and its possibilities. Guest curator Brooks Oliver brings together a group of young artists working in the medium of ceramics, whose practice centers around interesting and exciting interpretations of the vessel, a fundamental and important form connected to human civilization. Brooks Oliver obtained his MFA from Penn State and is a ceramics educator at the University of North Texas. He endeavors to “reimagine and reinterpret the familiar functional vessel”. In doing so, he challenges the viewers to examine the grey areas in art and craft, form and function and mass production versus handmade. On the surface his works are sleek and industrial, but closer examination reveals the maker’s marks such as seams that have not been sanded smoothly or glaze ... More

PARIS.- Following on from her success at Musée Guimet in 2017, Prune Nourry is taking possession of the Galerie Templon space on Rue Grenier Saint Lazare for the first time with Catharsis . The solo show is made up of a series of new sculptures interacting with extracts from her first feature-length documentary, Serendipity. The Catharsis exhibition marks a turning point in the artist’s creative process. For over twelve years, Prune Nourry has been developing powerful and thoughtful multidisciplinary work, exploring the body by questioning gender and hybridisation. She has tended to keep her subject at a distance, remaining as objective as a researcher or anthropologist. Having recently overcome breast cancer, over the course of her treatment the artist felt she was becoming the subject of her own work, a sculpture in the hands of the doctors. With Catharsis , armed with her sculptor's tools, Prune ... More

MILAN.- Pirelli HangarBicocca presents Daniel Steegmann Mangrané’s first solo exhibition in Italy from September 12, 2019 to January 19, 2020. Over twenty works, produced from 1998 to today, engage visitors in an artistic investigation on the theme of ecological complexity and on the dialectic between man and nature. Daniel Steegmann Mangrané (b. 1977, Barcelona; based in Rio de Janeiro since 2004) works with organic elements and technology and creates artworks through a variety of media—drawing, installation, photography, sculpture, film, video, holograms and virtual reality—often tracing the boundary between nature and artifice, where the separation between subject and object disappears and the collective experience is radically transformed. At the same time, intrigued by the richly biodiverse Brazilian rainforest, Steegmann Mangrané offers a reflection on the fragility and ... More

Solo exhibition of new paintings by Loie Hollowell opens at Pace Gallery   Forty objects head off on loan to five regions for year three of V&A's DesignLab Nation   Contemporary drawings to tour UK in first-time co-curated exhibition

NEW YORK, NY.- Pace Gallery inaugurated its global headquarters with a solo exhibition of new paintings by Loie Hollowell. Marking Hollowell’s debut exhibition with Pace in New York, Plumb Line features nine large‑scale paintings that expand upon the artist’s dynamic use of dimensionality, color and geometric shapes. Abstracting the human figure, Hollowell’s work explores the dualities of light, volume and scale, blurring the lines between the illusory and the real. In particular, this new body of work explores Hollowell’s relationship to different stages of her pregnancy from conception, to birth, to motherhood. Nonetheless, subject matter in Hollowell’s work often emerges through phenomenological encounter rather than narrative content, tapping the depth of the artist’s embodied experience. In Hollowell’s words: ... More

LONDON.- For the first time, the British Museum has co-curated an exhibition with partner museums from around the UK to display and then tour contemporary artworks from its Prints and Drawings collection.

Proyectos Monclova opens 'Who's Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue'
MEXICO CITY.- This exhibition originated with an open reflection on the current tendencies that are incorporated in and extended to the notion of contemporary painting. The multiplicity of works and techniques comprised by this show make apparent the formal instability when we talk about painting. At the same time, it considers how this variety turns into multiple reflections that are no longer about the medium —or rather about the apparatus of the "picture"— but instead about pictorial expression itself. Here we have artistic practices that go beyond the limits of the canvas to formulate different questions about how we see and represent the world. How, then, are we to understand painting under these new circumstances? What does it really mean to paint today? This exhibition presents as many answers as possible through the work of Elsa-Louise Manceaux, ... More

Michelle Lopez: Ballast & Barricades (on view through May 10, 2020) employs a fragmented architectural language to critique systems of power and consumption through a large site-specific installation that builds a decrepit cityscape both reduced to and suspended by rubble.

The resulting installation presents a sculptural terrain that harbors political discord ... More

Eli Wilner Painting - Montauk Moments



On a day like today, Indian painter M. F. Husain was born
September 17, 1915. Maqbool Fida Husain (17 September 1915 - 9 June 2011) commonly known as MF Husain, was an Indian painter. Husain was associated with Indian modernism in the 1940s. A dashing, highly eccentric figure who dressed in impeccably tailored suits, he went barefoot and brandished an extra-long paintbrush as a slim cane. He never maintained a studio but he spread his canvases out on the floor of whatever hotel room he happened to be staying in and paying for damages when he checked out. In this image: M.F. Husain, India's most famous artist finishes off a canvas he painted together with Shah Rukh Khan, right, one of India's biggest movie stars, during a fund-raising auction in a central London's auction house, Thursday June 7, 2007. The pair, two of India's biggest cultural brands, painted the piece, that was to be sold in the auction along with other works by both established Indian masters and a newer generation of artists.
