Giambologna, Michelangelo and the Medici Chapel explored in new exhibition

DRESDEN.- With his interior for the Medici Chapel in Florence, which he created between 1524 and 1534, Michelangelo achieved an unequalled climax in Renaissance sculpture. His monumental personifications of the Times of Day – Dusk and Dawn, Night and Day – are pairs of reclining figures on the sarcophagi of Giuliano and Lorenzo de’ Medici. Almost shocking in their nudity and bold poses, these figures had an enormous impact on generations of artists. Among the numerous replicas of Michelangelo’s Times of Day, the four statuettes held by Dresden’s Skulpturensammlung hold a special position. According to the inventories of the electoral Kunstkammer of 1587 and 1640, the Tuscan grand duke Cosimo I de’ Medici presented Elector August of Saxony with these figures as early as around 1560 or 1570. The exhibition “Shadows of Time. Giambologna, Michelangelo and the Medici Chapel” is shining a light on these master ... More

LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Los Angeles County Museum of Art presents To Rome and Back: Individualism and Authority in Art, 1500– 1800. Assembled almost entirely from LACMA’s permanent collection, this examination of Rome presents gifts from years of support to the museum’s departments of Costume and Textiles, Decorative Arts and Design, Latin American Art, and Prints and Drawings, in addition to European Painting and Sculpture. The exhibition features 130 objects across a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, paper, decorative arts (such as ceramics, glass, and cork), tapestries, and costumes. Collectively, these works reveal the importance of Rome to artists and audiences operating in a variety of contexts from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment. For more than 2,000 years, Rome has occupied a central place in the cultural imagination: as a proud republic, as a powerful then decadent empire, as the seat of Catholicism, and abo ... More

LAUSANNE.- In the summer of 2018 the Fondation de l’Hermitage is presenting a major exhibition of the work of Henri Manguin (1874-1949), an artist who loved colour and whom the poet Apollinaire called the “voluptuous painter”. The main focus will be on Manguin’s early career and notably his Fauvist period, when he shared the audacity of his fellow artists in that group and sometimes outdid them in the quest for new means of expression through the use of colour. With their sumptuous chromatic harmonies, the paintings from this period reflect Manguin’s rare talent and creativity. Manguin met Albert Marquet and Henri Matisse in Paris in 1892, while he was training at the Ecole des Arts décoratifs. In November 1894 the three young painters enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, where they worked in Gustave Moreau’s ... More

William Merritt Chase (American, 1849–1916), Idle Hours, c. 1894 (detail). Oil on canvas. Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Fort Worth, Texas, 1982.1.

DALLAS, TX.- The Meadows Museum, SMU, presents a focused summer exhibition pairing its recent acquisition Beach at Portici (1874), by Mariano Fortuny y Marsal (1838–1874), with a loan from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Idle Hours (1894), by William Merritt Chase (1849–1916). At the Beach: Mariano Fortuny y Marsal and William Merritt Chase explores Chase’s admiration of Fortuny, through two key paintings, one by the American artist and one by his Spanish predecessor, displayed together for the first time June 24 through September 23, 2018. The depiction of leisure time at the beach was popular in late 19th-century painting, and both Fortuny and Chase used beach scenes to showcase their great skill at rendering light. In both paintings, the artists portray their respective families in fashionable white garments lounging near a curving coastline, Fortuny’s in southern Italy and Chase’s on Long Island, New ... More

ATLANTA, GA.- Folk, naïve, vernacular, visionary, outsider, self-taught—over the past century, a range of rubrics has emerged to describe artists who rose to prominence in the mainstream art world despite a lack of formal training. The touring exhibition “Outliers and American Vanguard Art,” on view from June 24 through Sept. 30 at the High, examines the shifting identity of American self-taught artists and offers an unprecedented overview of their profound impact on the evolution of modern and contemporary art. Organized by the National Gallery of Art and curated by Lynne Cooke, senior curator for special projects in modern art, the exhibition features more than 250 diverse works from the 1910s to the present by more than 80 trained and untrained artists. Together the works reveal ... More

Henry Moore, Figure, 1933-34. Collection privée. Photo Henry Moore archive.

LANDERNEAU.- Henry Moore was one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century and the first British artist to become a global star during his lifetime. As the embodiment of post-war modernism, his art initiated the revival of sculpture in Great Britain, a movement that continues today. His sculptures are exhibited in many cities and museums throughout the world; their organic shapes continue to attract an ever growing audience and inspire new generations of artists. The exhibition at Landerneau traces his extraordinary life and career through a choice of emblematic works, most of which are on loan from the collection of the Henry Moore Foundation at Perry Green, where he lived and worked. In the early 1920s, Henry Moore studied at Leeds School of Art in the UK. This was where he learned drawing, but already his dream was to become a sculptor. At Moore’s request, the school director opened a sculpture department and for some time he was the only student. The teaching was ... More

Gladstone 64 opens a group exhibition: SAFE   Crocker opens career-spanning exhibition by artist who advanced California's Chicano culture   The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College opens exhibition of works by Daniel Steegmann Mangrané

Installation view.

NEW YORK, NY.- Gladstone 64 is presenting SAFE, a group exhibition that reveals a series of foreboding narratives hidden beneath the mundane and banal facets of everyday life. Through a collection of painting, photography, sculpture and installation, the exhibition brings together works by artists including Richard Artschwager, Robert Mapplethorpe, Sam McKinniss, Bruce Nauman, Philippe Parreno, Marina Pinsky and Richard Prince. The exhibition’s origin is built upon themes prevalent throughout 20th-century film and literature, including intangibility, ambiguity and loneliness brought about through an individual’s reckoning with society, recurring throughout a variety of works such as Jean-Paul Sartre’s La Nausée (1938), Don DeLillo’s White Noise (1985) and Todd Haynes’ film Safe (1995). In Haynes’ movie, Julianne Moore, who plays a suburban California housewife, becomes ill in reaction to the quotidian aspects ... More

Casey Kaplan opens exhibition of new works by Jason Dodge
NEW YORK, NY.- Casey Kaplan announces “hand in hand with the handless,” new works by Jason Dodge. Dodge’s first exhibition with the gallery was in 1998. Over the past two decades, Dodge has engaged in a sculptural practice that offers space for presence and reflection. His works exist as primary materials through which to consider the mechanics of perception and aesthetics of everyday substance. Working with a wide-range of existing objects, his sculptures speak to the subjective auras of the items that circulate through our lives. The works in the show consist of elemental components: plastic, paper, copper, aluminum, glass, cotton, crystal, and wood. Obsolete electronics consider a fluctuation of emotions, spanning excitement, frustration, indifference, and nostalgia. In these new works, intimate objects from domestic life appear haphazardly placed. ... More

Shelburne Museum's exhibition, Playing Cowboy, explores an American myth
SHELBURNE, VT.- Playing Cowboy, this summer’s major exhibition at Shelburne Museum, is on view in the Pizzagalli Center for Arts and Education’s Colgate Gallery from June 23 until October 21, 2018. Before movie legends like John Wayne galloped across the silver screen, real live cowboys and Indians entertained audiences in dramatic performances that traveled the world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. William “Buffalo Bill” Cody (1846-1917) helped generate the growing public interest in the vanishing Wild West by acting out the exploits of his life as a scout and Indian fighter in this uniquely American form of entertainment. At the same time, painters and sculptors such as Frederic Remington (1861-1909), N.C. Wyeth (1882-1945), and Carl Rungius (1869-1959) ventured west in search of artistic inspiration, translating their experiences into romantic ... More

Parrasch Heijnen Gallery's first solo exhibition of new paintengs by Sophie von Hellermann opens in L.A.
LOS ANGELES, CA.- Parrasch Heijnen Gallery is presenting Petri Dishes, the gallery’s first solo exhibition of new paintengs by artist Sophie von Hellermann. Inquisitive microscopes peer over Petri dishes, scrutinizing imaginary microcosms of cultural growths and various characters in action. Depicting gruesome moments from a wide range of source material that includes modern American culture, Christianity, Greek mythology, and German folklore, von Hellermann examines the basis of our cultural understanding. As von Hellermann states, “Painting idioms and metaphor and literary references has always been part of my practice. I see the empty canvas as a mirror for thoughts like a stage and the pigments and acrylic emulsion and water as narrators and actors.” The artist’s thin application of media unrestrainedly moves about yet is ultimately ...

Cracking art: the Vietnam craftsman making World Cup mascots from eggshells
HO CHI MINH CITY (AFP).- Football scarves, shirts and... eggshell art? World Cup swag has taken a quirky turn in Vietnam where a retired schoolteacher is making mascot memorabilia from hollowed-out eggs, meticulously crafted by hand. Nguyen Thanh Tam, 67, spends hours every day making the models, driven by his football fanaticism -- a passion shared by millions across Vietnam glued to the World Cup since the tournament kicked off in Russia earlier this month. Most of his tiny statues are of tournament mascot Zabivaka, a wolf in sports goggles kicking a football, and he has models of football heroes Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the works. "Over the past few years, I have been spending my time making football mascots with eggshells as a way for me to show my love for football," Tam told AFP, speaking before a basket of eggs in his Ho ...

The De La Warr Pavilion presents a major exhibition by Alison Wilding: Right Here and Out There
BEXHILL-ON-SEA.- The De La Warr Pavilion presents Right Here and Out There, an exhibition of new and existing works by Alison Wilding (b.1948) that unfolds inside and outside the gallery. Regarded as one of the UK's foremost sculptors, Wilding's abstract works use contrasting materials such as neoprene rubber, translucent acrylic, mirrored glass, alabaster and steel to create sensual juxtapositions which explore the complexities of perception. The exhibition responds to the landscape that surrounds the De La Warr Pavilion and light that streams into it, showing a selection of works from the 1980s to the present and two new sculptures made especially for the site. It begins in the ground floor gallery, a space characterised by a huge window out to sea. Through it, a new work can be glimpsed: Docking, a pair of large lozenge shapes made from cast concrete, ...

PARIS.- Galerie Nathalie Obadia is presenting Un cheval, des silex (One Horse, Some Flints), Benoît Maire’s first solo show at the gallery. The artist, born in Pessac in 1978, creates work that is protean: at the intersection of aesthetics and visual arts, it questions the limits of representation. His work calls on painting, sculpture, photography, video, writing, and performance. He is at present the subject of a large exhibition at the CAPC Contemporary Art Museum of Bordeaux, until September 2, 2018. For this exhibition, Benoît Maire combines different works: Peintures de nuages (Cloud Paintings) hang on the walls, the Sphinx (Sphinxes) are suspended in mid-air, and Châteaux (Castles) sit atop pedestals or peculiar pieces of furniture. Some of his works levitate around us, while others seem to emerge from their bases to put themselves on display, but all ... More
