Egypt opens two ancient pyramids, unveils new finds

A man brushes off dust from a sarcophagus, part of a new discovery carried out almost 300 meters south of King Amenemhat II’s pyramid at Dahshur necropolis, exposed near the Bent Pyramid, about 40km (25 miles) south of the Egyptian capital Cairo, during an inaugural ceremony of the pyramid and its satellites, on July 13, 2019. An Egyptian archaeological mission discovered a collection of stone, clay and wooden sarcophagi, of which some are still containing well preserved mummies, as well as a collection of wooden funerary masks and instruments used in cutting stones.

DAHSHUR (AFP).- Egypt on Saturday opened two ancient pyramids south of the capital Cairo and unveiled a collection of newly found sarcophagi, some containing well-preserved mummies. Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani told reporters the Bent Pyramid of King Sneferu, the first pharaoh of Egypt's 4th dynasty, and a nearby pyramid would be reopened to visitors for the first time since 1965. He also said a team of archaeologists had uncovered sarcophagi and the remains of an ancient wall dating back to the Middle Kingdom some 4,000 years ago. The finds were made during excavation work in the royal necropolis of Dahshur on the west bank of the Nile River, in an area home to some of Egypt's oldest pyramids.
"Several stone, clay and wooden sarcophagi were found and some contain mummies in good condition," the antiquities ministry said in a statement. The ancient wall stretches some 60 metres and is situated south of the pyramid of 12th dynasty pharaoh King Amenemhat II, ... More

BASEL.- The new presentation of works from the collection at the Fondation Beyeler goes in search of lost time. Conceived as an invitation to wander through the gardens of modern art history, it ends with contemporary art, where it ties in with the museum’s summer show devoted to Rudolf Stingel, in whose work memories and the traces of time also play a key role. Visitors will find celebrated masterpieces, seldom exhibited rare pieces, newly conceived artist’s rooms, unexpected encounters between art works, valuable loans from the Daros Collection and other private collections as well as new acquisitions presented here for the first time. Unexpected displays question and challenge our viewing habits. Curated by Director Sam Keller, the collection display extends over half the museum space and comprises around a hundred paintings, sculptures, ... More

HAMBURG.- With over 300 organs, Hamburg is home to a unique and widely varied organ landscape. In addition to those in the city’s churches, there are numerous other instruments located in schools, in the Elbphilharmonie, in the studio of the NDR public broadcasting station, in the State Opera House, at the University and even in the prisons. To mark the 300th anniversary of the death of Arp Schnitger (1648–1719), one of the world’s most famous organ builders, the city of Hamburg has declared 2019 the Year of the Organ, with the motto ‘Hamburg Pulls Out All the Stops’. Concerts and events through-out the city, along with a major exhibition at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, are arousing public curiosity about this impressive instrument and its history. The exhibition Manufacturing Sound. 2000 Years of Organ Building and Organ Playing invites ... More

Collector Heidi Goëss-Horten, 2018, Courtesy Heidi Horten Collection, © Andreas Tischler.

VIENNA.- “WOW!” – the well-received exhibition held in 2018 at Vienna's Leopold Museum – revealed for the first time to the wider public a comprehensive but relatively little-known private collection. Its instigator, Austrian art collector Heidi Goëss-Horten, now has another surprise up her sleeve: the collector has acquired the Stöcklgebäude (annex building) of the Hanuschhof in the heart of Vienna's city center for the purpose of making her spectacular art collection permanently accessible. In choosing Vienna to house the collection, Heidi Goëss-Horton has returned to her roots. The timeline for the opening of the new private museum will be challenging. Boasting 2,000 square meters, two floors, and the inner courtyard, the museum will feature changing exhibitions from the collection’s highlights. Later this fall, three select architectural firms will submit proposals for the renovation, which will commence immediately once the chosen project has been confirmed. The op ... More

Anton Kern Gallery announced the passing of Eberhard Havekost   Greene Naftali now represents Cory Arcangel and Andy Robert   How Attenborough nature docs inspired new 'Lion King'

NEW YORK, NY.- Anton Kern Gallery announced the passing of their dear friend and artist, Eberhard Havekost. Anton first saw Havekost’s work in 1997 in Dresden, and subsequently gave him his first solo exhibition in New York in 1998. He had eight solo exhibitions at the gallery, and was an integral and beloved part of their community. He will be sorely missed by all of us. Havekost described painting as a hybrid form, defining it as an additive process in contrast to photography‘s cut-out frame. He understood painting as an “offer of rhythm” in which the dissolution of the rhythmic structure itself is revealed: “Painting engenders rhythm through its self-referentiality. It introduces an abstraction, namely a reduction in favor of the total picture. In painting, ... More

Cory Arcangel, Blackberry / Lakes, 2013.

NEW YORK, NY.- Greene Naftali announced the addition of two new artists to its program this summer: mid-career multimedia artist Cory Arcangel (b. 1978) and emerging painter Andy Robert (b. 1984). Cory Arcangel’s practice traffics in the vernacular of the internet and digital technology, mingling various eras of the relatively new fields in a demonstration of how quickly they become obsolete. Repurposing hacking as an artistic practice, Arcangel’s interventions in existing and outmoded technologies highlight aesthetic anachronisms, alternately triggering nostalgia and repelling retrained sensibilities. Often using the structure and vocabulary of technological systems as material—a conceptual approach which connects him to the legacy of experimental media in his native Buffalo, established by artists like Tony Conrad and Paul Sharits—Arcangel’s body of work reflects the increasing entanglement of digital ...

LOS ANGELES (AFP).- Disney's new 3D "Lion King" was inspired by the majestic scope of David Attenborough's natural world documentaries -- although the talking animals did cause some problem, its creators have revealed. The film tells the classic tale of young lion cub Simba seeking to avenge his father Mufasa's death and save his kingdom, rendered in photo-realistic visuals using cutting-edge effects. From the very opening scene, the remake -- which emulates the 1994 original's "Circle of Life" theme -- treats viewers to breathtaking "shots" of antelopes, zebras and wildebeest galloping across the African savannah. Its producers took safari tours of real-life locations from Kenya's huge Masai Mara reserve to the desert sand dunes of Namibia for inspiration, before ... More

MAMbo - Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna opens Julian Charrière's first personal exhibition in Italy   New website gives access to more than 2,600 of Frances Hodgkins' artworks, letters and related photographs   Seattle Art Museum opens solo show of visual activist Zanele Muholi

All We Ever Wanted Was Everything and Everywhere, curated by Lorenzo Balbi, in the Hall Sala delle Ciminiere includes a wide selection of works such as photographs, installations, sculptures and videos, touching upon the history of science, the development of media culture, the romantic vision of exploration and the modern ecological crisis. Backing his long-term interest in the unseen processes behind the production of knowledge and the different methods that lead to a discovery, Charrière tries to ... More

SEATTLE, WA.- The Seattle Art Museum presents Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail the Dark Lioness (July 10–November 8, 2019), featuring photographs and large-scale photographic wallpapers from the South African visual activist’s ongoing self-portrait series. Organized by Autograph, London and curated by Renée Mussai, this international touring exhibition confronts the complex global politics of race, gender, and representation. “I’m reclaiming my blackness, which I feel is continuously performed by the privileged ‘other,’” says Muholi. “My reality is that I do not mimic being black; it is my skin, and the experience of being black is deeply entrenched in me. Just like our ancestors, we live as black people 365 days a year, and we should speak without fear.” From 2014–17, Muholi traveled around the world ... More

'Eileen Hogan: Personal Geographies' reveals the beauty behind garden fates   Timothy Taylor to represent Annie Morris in London and New York   Petzel Gallery presents a a para fictional exhibition prduced by Dana Hoey

Eileen Hogan, Ian Hamilton Finlay, 2012, oil, wax, and charcoal on paper, mounted on board, Yale Center for British Art, acquired with funds from the Bequest of Daniel S. Kalk.

NEW HAVEN, CONN.- The Yale Center for British Art is presenting the work of English artist Eileen Hogan (b. 1946). A figurative painter focusing on portraiture and depictions of gardens, Hogan is known for her deft rendering of light in natural settings and for poetic depictions of her sitters. Her work often invokes the passing of time and memory. Eileen Hogan: Personal Geographies juxtaposes the artist’s preparatory works with complete paintings in oil, wax, and charcoal to convey a sense of her creative process. The exhibition includes 70 paintings, 20 sketchbooks, and a dozen artist books, many of which are on view for the first time in North America, on loan from private and public collections in the United Kingdom. Hogan resides in London, and in recent years, her practice has been inspired by both public gardens and more ... More

Morris’s first show with Timothy Taylor, New York in the fall will feature her monumental Stack sculptures, new tapestries, and works on paper.

NEW YORK, NY.- Timothy Taylor announced the representation of British artist Annie Morris. The gallery will present Morris’s first solo exhibition at Timothy Taylor, New York this September. “We are delighted to be working with Annie Morris. I have been following her rise to international recognition for many years. Her critical engagement with art history is evident in her practice, which is at once both deeply personal and formally unique in her application and use of materials. Annie is a natural fit with the gallery’s programme—in her work, I see both Antoni Tàpies’s engagement with surface and Kiki Smith’s reckoning with nature and spirituality. We are thrilled to be able to share her newest body of work in her upcoming solo exhibition with us in New York this fall, and look forward to showing her at our new space in London in the future.” - Tim Taylor, June 2019. The London-based artist was ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Petzel Gallery is showing Dana Hoey Presents, a para fictional exhibition conceptualized, produced and directed by Hoey, in which the artist shows her own photographic work, the performance and sculpture work of Marcela Torres, and a live ladies Muay Thai fight night that will take place in a 20’ x 20’ boxing ring installed inside the gallery. The show, which challenges and confronts preconceived ideas and realities of feminism, combat, violence, self defense and the martial arts, is on view from June 27 until August 2 at the gallery’s Chelsea location. “During the run of Dana Hoey Presents, my role will be that of Svengali,” Hoey says. “Although I make work as a single subjective, expressive artist, I prefer to emphasize my position as a participant in a larger social construct.” For her own work, Hoey presents Ghost Stories, highly subjective, ...

Exhibition presents works by six painters depicting landscape and flora through a synthetic lens
NEW YORK, NY.- Asya Geisberg Gallery is presenting “Plastic Garden”, an exhibition of six painters depicting landscape and flora through a synthetic lens: Madeleine Bialke, Jennifer Coates, Sharona Eliassaf, Adrienne Elise Tarver, Joani Tremblay, Emma Webster, and Brian Willmont. The works seek a spiritual connection to nature not thorough awe-inspiring vistas, but with toxic colors, moody surrealism, and industrial surfaces. Madeleine Bialke subverts American landscape tropes with a radioactive, hyper-saturated palette. Details are simplified and natural scenes feel rubbery, while flattened spaces evoke a stage set that is unsettlingly absent of animals or other “actors”. Jennifer Coates finds spiritual solace in the abstracted architecture of tree branches. By “kissing” the canvas with the mouth of paint tubes, Coates creates confetti gumball dots that ... More

Do You Love Me? P·P·O·W opens a group exhibition
NEW YORK, NY.- P·P·O·W is presenting Do You Love Me?, a group exhibition featuring work by Elliott Jerome Brown Jr., Martine Gutierrez, Gerald Lovell, Reba Maybury, Sophia Narrett, and Kyle Dunn. Bringing together a diverse group of emerging artists working in various media, Do You Love Me? explores contemporary desire by displaying artworks that double as entreaties for connection, intimacy, and external validation within the context of broader societal power structures. Exhibiting artists examine the inherently unbalanced power dynamics between those that ask to be loved and those that have the power to give it. Do You Love Me? acknowledges a contemporary climate in which interior lives become public, pushing artists to grapple with the fine line between being seen and being exploited; between presenting themselves and giving themselves ...

Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery opens an exhibition of new works by Tracey Moffatt
SYDNEY.- Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is presenting new works by Tracey Moffatt in Portals, her first solo exhibition following her popularly and critically acclaimed presentation at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017. Moffatt is one of Australia’s most renowned contemporary artists. Working predominantly in photography, film and video, Moffatt is known as a powerful visual storyteller. The narrative is often implied and self-referential, exploring her own childhood memories, and the broader issues of race, gender, sexuality and identity. Tracey Moffatt represented Australia at the 57th Venice Biennale, 2017 with her solo exhibition MY HORIZON in the Australian Pavilion, curated by Natalie King. Moffatt has exhibited in numerous national and international art exhibitions and film festivals for three decades. In 2012, a retrospective programme of her films was held ... More

Exhibition presents photos of artworks taken during the 19th century
RIGA.- An exhibition Photography of Artworks in the 19th Century is on view in the Bosse Hall of the Art Museum RIGA BOURSE in Riga from 12 July to 15 September 2019, providing a rare opportunity to see unique materials from the Library Collection of the Latvian National Museum of Art. Photography has become an integral part of our lives, so it is hard to believe that only 180 years have passed since a process of photofixation was invented. It seems also impossible to imagine the documentation of any museum’s collection in the world without the photographs of the artworks. The history of photography tells us that artworks were the first things to be photographed by the discoverers of photography Joseph Nicéphore Niépce (1765–1833), Louis Daguerre (1787–1851), Hippolyte Bayard (1801–1887), and William Fox Talbot (1800–1877).

French MPs call for Tour de France to join UNESCO list
PARIS (AFP).- A group of French members of parliament urged on Sunday that the Tour de France be added to UNESCO's world intangible cultural heritage list. France has 17 traditions on the UNESCO list, including "Equitation" and gastronomic meals. Only China, with 40 pieces of intangible heritage, Japan, South Korea and Spain are better represented. "The Tour de France, more than a national emblem, is a global myth," Philippe Folliot, a centrist deputy from the Tarn, wrote on the Journal de Dimanche website in a piece signed by 54 politicians. "Like what we did for the 'Gastronomic meal of the French' we must protect it and carry it like a banner of our culture, our heritage, our living together, in short, what we are." The MPs point out that the Tour, one of the world's most popular sporting events, is "the only show of its kind in the world that is both ... More

Czechs go crazy as pop singer Gott turns 80
PRAGUE (AFP).- Hundreds of people from home and abroad queued in steady rain in central Prague on Sunday to buy a "Zero Euro" souvenir banknote depicting Czech pop singer Karel Gott in honour of his 80th birthday. Some eager fans and collectors had waited for days, arriving as early as Thursday, to buy the zero-denomination banknote for the equivalent of two euros from special ATMs in the shop of a local record company. One fan, Lukas Gandzala, said he had slept outside the store after coming all the way from the northern Slovak city of Poprad, some 450 kilometres (280 miles) from Prague. "We arrived at 6:00 am on Saturday. We slept in sleeping bags on the pavement," he told AFP. "We collect the banknotes, the Zero Euro is a big phenomenon in our country, and so is Karel Gott," he said, folding his umbrella to finally get inside the shop after a ... More

Salvatore Arancio presents a new and site-specific project at Casa Museo Jorn
ALBISSOLA MARINA.- From July 11 to September 22, 2019 Casa Museo Jorn presents a solo exhibition by Salvatore Arancio: Like a Sort of Pompeii in Reverse, curated by Luca Bochicchio, artistic director of the museum. After his participation at the 57th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale (2017) and his recent solo exhibition at the Whitechapel gallery in London (2018), Salvatore Arancio presents in Albissola a new and site-specific project, conceived and realized in situ. Between 2017 and 2019 Arancio made numerous research visits to Casa Museo Jorn, becoming fascinated by the situationist labyrinth that the Danish artist Asger Jorn created between 1957 and 1973 together with his friend and assistant Umberto (Berto) Gambetta. More than any other element or space in the house, Arancio was impressed by the different materials and ... More

Oscar Murillo and Ruth Ewan present new work at Yorkshire Sculpture Park
WAKEFIELD.- Yorkshire Sculpture Park brings together work by artists Ruth Ewan and Oscar Murillo in a new exhibition that explores the continued vital role of a creative approach to child development. A new commission by Ewan references the philosophy of two of the most influential educators of the 20th century, Sir Alec Clegg and Sir Herbert Read, while Frequencies, an ever-evolving global project created by Murillo, in collaboration with students around the world, gives insight into what it’s like to grow up in different countries in the 21st century. In Longside Gallery, Ewan’s participatory installation, Asking Out, recreates a Castleford primary school classroom from 1972. Inspired by the holdings of the National Arts Education Archive (NAEA) based at YSP, visitors are introduced to the pioneering teaching method ‘Asking Out’, a technique – developed ... More

Pi Artworks Istanbul exhibits series of abstract paintings by Nejat Satı
ISTANBUL.- Pi Artworks Istanbull is presenting artist Nejat Satı’s solo exhibition Wild Flowers, a special show interpreting the links between art and nature. It presents an exploration of wildflowers in relation to their colors, and is open between 10 July and 10 August, 2019. The exhibition for the first time presents this series of abstract paintings in one place, and invites the spectator to dive into the abstract flora curated by the artist in the confines of the gallery space. After having adopted black for a few years for social and aesthetic reasons (Light in the Dark, 2017), Nejat Satı returns to color in full force with this exhibition. The paintings represent the artist’s recent observations of appearance, characteristics and nature of colors, taking his inspiration directly from wildflowers. These so-called wild plants can adapt to and thrive in extreme environments ... More
