John Giorno, who moved poetry beyond the printed page, dies at 82   The Amelia Earhart mystery stays down in the deep   Christie's in association with Whyte's of Dublin will offer The Ernie O'Malley Collection

John Giorno and his husband, Ugo Rondinone, at the Palais de Tokyo setting up their exhibition "Ugo Rondinone: I Heart John Giorno," in Paris, Oct. 13, 2015. Giorno, who turned to the world of art and the mechanisms of mass media to shake poetry loose from the page and embed it more deeply in the fabric of everyday life, died on Oct. 12, 2019, at his home in New York. He was 82. Alex Cretey-Systermans/The New York Times.

NEW YORK, NY (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- John Giorno, who turned to the world of art and the mechanisms of mass media to shake poetry loose from the page and embed it more deeply in the fabric of everyday life, died Friday at his home in New York in a building that he had made into a gathering place for practically everyone from the avant-garde of his time. He was 82. His death, after a heart attack, was confirmed by artist Ugo Rondinone, his husband. Possessed of Greco-Roman good looks and a gregarious, benevolent spirit, Giorno played an important role early in his life as a muse and lover of other artists, among them Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol, who created his seminal 1963 ...

Earhart beneath the nose of her Lockheed Model 10-E Electra, March 1937, Oakland, California.

NEW YORK, NY (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- For two weeks in August, a multimillion-dollar search from air, land and sea sought to solve the 80-year mystery of Amelia Earhart’s disappearance. Robert Ballard, the ocean explorer famous for locating the wreck of the Titanic, led a team that discovered two hats in the depths. It found debris from an old shipwreck. It even spotted a soda can. What it did not find was a single piece of the Lockheed Electra airplane flown in 1937 by Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan, which vanished during their doomed voyage around the world. Ballard and his crew don’t consider it a failure. For one thing, he says, they know where the plane isn’t. And in the process, they may have dispensed with one clue that has driven years of speculation, while a team of collaborating archaeologists potentially turned up more hints at the aviator’s fate. “This plane exists,” Ballard said. “It’s not the Loch Ness monster, and it’s going to be found.” Ballard had avoided ...

PARIS.- A wall. Seven windows. Four people. Three trees. Some clouds. And one sun, take over three places comprising spaces of complementary dimensions and configurations, some adjacent, others overlaid. Here and there contents and containers form a whole, signalling in the same way as Ugo Rondinone's previous exhibitions issues as dialectical and mnemonic as they are intertextual: objects and architectural components, solids and voids colliding with situations and contexts governed by a principle of instability. Near and distant. Opaque and transparent. Front and back. Top and bottom. Optic and haptic. There can be no equating – much less combining – Rondinone's works with any single state that would exhaust their potential. What is to be said ... More

LONDON (AFP).- Judges tore up the rule book on Monday, awarding the prestigious Booker Prize for Fiction jointly to Canadian author Margaret Atwood for "The Testaments" and Anglo-Nigerian author Bernardine Evaristo for "Girl, Woman, Other". Atwood becomes only the second female author to win the award twice, sharing the £50,000 ($62,800, 60,000 euros) prize at the 50th anniversary ceremony at London's Guildhall. The award has been shared twice before, in 1974 and 1997, when the rules were changed to supposedly prevent it from happening again. The 79-year-old Atwood, who wore a badge of climate activist group Extinction Rebellion, held aloft the arm of her fellow winner as they walked to the podium together. "I'm very surprised, I would have thought I would have been too ... More

BILBAO.- The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is presenting the exhibition entitled Thomas Struth , a complete journey through five decades of one of the most influential European post-war photographers, whose evolution as an artist has been marked by social concerns. The images of Thomas Struth (b. 1954, Geldern, Germany) receive their signature character from the questions they raise about the relevance of public space, family ties, nature, culture, and the limits of new technologies. Thus, Struth addresses essential questions like the instability of social structures and the fragility of human existence through images whose formal elegance prompts the audience’s participation and empathy towards these topics. This exhibition connects Struth’s initial concepts—seen in the archival material that the artist has collected over the years—to his well-defined groups of finished ... More

ANTWERP.- Middelheim Museum is best known for its collection of modern and contemporary sculptures in the art park. However, since its creation, the museum has also collected a great deal of work to be displayed indoors. When founded, its mission was to provide an overview of international sculpture from the end of the nineteenth century to the museum’s own time. In addition, the museum also brought together extensive supporting collections: models, drawings and prints, media art and photography. And sometimes works intended for outdoor use turned out to be more suitable for indoor use. Just over 80% of the works of art in the Middelheim collection are therefore stored in depots that are closed to the public. Because the museum wants to offer maximum access to the collections in all their diversity, ... More

The show has been adapted to the different space and also includes an additional piece, an artist’s book made in July at the Istituto Centrale della Grafica in Rome. These works by Helen Cammock interweave women’s stories of loss and resilience with seventeenth-century Baroque music by female composers, exploring the concept of lament in women’s lives across histories and geographies. In addition to the new artist’s book, the exhibition includes a film, a series of vinyl cut prints, a screen-printed frieze, and a research room with books and objects that Cammock collected ...

Climate change activist Greta Thunberg captured on wet plate by North Dakotan artist Shane Balkowitsch
NEW YORK, NY.- On Tuesday, October 8, North Dakotan wet plate collodion artist Shane Balkowitsch had the chance to make several portraits of Swedish environmental activist and 2019 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Greta Thunberg during her visit to North Dakota in support of indigenous groups fighting Dakota Access oil pipeline. Many in the Standing Rock tribe consider the pipeline a threat to the region's clean water and to ancient burial grounds. The shoot took place at Standing Rock, ND where Thunberg was being honored by tribal leaders for her work to fight climate change. During the closing ceremony, Thunberg was bestowed with a Lakota Native American name "Maphiyata echiyatan his win" which translates as "woman who came from the heavens."
