Israeli diver finds 900-year-old crusader sword   Soundsuit by American multimedia artist Nick Cave acquired by Honolulu Museum of Art   Christie's New York 21st Century Evening Sale presents: ARCADIA

A picture taken on October 19, 2021, shows an ancient one-meter-long sword that experts say dates back to the Crusader-era and is believed to have belonged to a Crusader, displayed at the beach in the Israeli seaport of Caesarea, some days after being discovered by a local diver. Jack GUEZ / AFP.

CAESAREA.- Israel on Tuesday displayed a 900-year-old sword believed to have belonged to a crusader, found by a scuba diver off the Mediterranean coast. The Israel Antiquities Authority said diver Shlomi Katzin came across the iron sword, now encrusted in marine organisms, after shifts in the sand left it exposed. "The sword, which has been preserved in perfect condition, is a beautiful and rare find and evidently belonged to a crusader knight," Nir Distelfeld of the IAA said in a statement. The IAA said the Carmel coast area where the sword was found was used through the centuries by ships seeking shelter from storms due to its many coves, leaving various "rich archaeological finds". Kobi Sharvit of the IAA's marine archaeology unit said the trend of divers finding precious artefacts was growing. Even though professionals ... More

Nick Cave (b. 1959. Lives and works in Chicago), “Soundsuit 8:46” (2021) . Mixed media including vintage textile and sequined appliqués, metal, and mannequin. Photo courtesy Honolulu Museum of Art.

HONOLULU, HI.- The Honolulu Museum of Art recently acquired a major work by legendary contemporary artist Nick Cave. “Soundsuit 8:46” (2021), a mixed-media mannequin of vintage floral textiles and sequined appliques, is a response to recent police violence against people of color, in particular the tragic murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020. The work revisits Cave’s iconic series “Soundsuits,” which were first conceived after the 1991 Rodney King beating and the resulting riots in Los Angeles in 1992. “Soundsuit 8:46” forms the centerpiece of the thematic reinstallation of HoMA’s permanent collection entitled “In Human Terms.” This reinstallation showcases works in a variety of media that speak to humanity’s desire to explore the meaning and significance embedded within the human form from antiquity to today. “Nick Cave’s essential and innovative work is critical ...

Andrés Reisinger (b. 1990), RAC (b. 1985), Arch Hades (b. 1992), ARCADIA, 2021 (detail). Estimate Unknown. © Christie's Images Ltd 2021.

NEW YORK, NY.- On Tuesday, 9 November 2021, Christie's 21st Century Art Evening sale at Rockefeller Center will present ARCADIA (estimate unknown), a collaborative interdisciplinary NFT by contemporary visual artist Andrés Reisinger, Grammy-winning musician RAC, and bestselling poet Arch Hades. Through ARCADIA, these three artists, each a leading name within their respective fields, harmoniously fuse poetry, music, and graphic art in a film that unpacks concepts of a collectively felt existential crisis experienced universally by humankind in our current era. In ARCADIA, the message is inseparable from the medium, as three timeless and traditional fine artforms - musical, visual, and lyrical - culminate in the digitized manifestation of an NFT, an asset class specific to the 21C. The work will be minted in October 2021 by Aorist, a next generation cultural institution supporting a sustainable NFT marketplace powered on the Algorand Blockchain. No ... More

LONDON.- This autumn, Whitechapel Gallery visitors are invited to participate in an interactive installation by world famous artist, musician and activist Yoko Ono (b.1933, Japan). Broken fragments of pottery are presented on two plain white tables, along with simple materials for repair – glue, twine, scissors and tape. On entering the space participants are prompted by a set of simple instructions provided by the artist: ‘Mend carefully. / Think of mending the world at the same time.’ Once finished, the ‘mended’ objects are displayed on adjacent shelves. Ono first presented this work as Mending Piece I at her 1966 solo exhibition at Indica Gallery, London, a renowned centre for countercultural art. MEND PIECE for London now returns to the city more than 50 years later, following Ono’s extensive career spanning performance, writing, visual art, experimental ... More

Giovanni Battista Tiepolo (Venice 1696 – Madrid 1770), Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, c. 1750. Red chalk heightened with white on blue paper, 356 x 270 mm.

NEW YORK, NY.- Visions in Blue: Drawings on Blue Paper, an exploration of the techniques and historical context of drawings on blue paper from the 16th to the 19th centuries, will be on view at Christopher Bishop Fine Art in New York City from October 22 through November 13, 2021. The exhibition will be accompanied by an exuberant temporary floral display for the first week, bringing a midsummer’s touch to Manhattan’s autumn art calendar. Most closely associated with Northern Italian drawings of the 17th century and especially the masters of the Veneto including Veronese, Titian, and Tintoretto, the tradition of drawing on blue paper continued well into the 18th and even the early 19th century. Among the dozen drawings featured in the exhibition is Giovanni Battista Tiepolo’s (Italian, 1696-1770) large-scale drawing Christ in the Garden of Gesthemene, a rare preparatory study for a 1750 painting of the same name by ...

David Finn in 2015 with a sculpture he made from straightened paper clips. While expanding his public relations firm, he furthered his involvement in the arts as a painter, photographer and sculptor. Ruder Finn via The New York Times.

by Glenn Rifkin

NEW YORK, NY.- David Finn, a dominant figure in the creation of the modern public relations industry as the co-founder of Ruder Finn, one of the most successful corporate PR firms to emerge after World War II, died Monday at his home in New Rochelle, New York. He was 100. His granddaughter Rachel Spielman said the cause was atherosclerotic cerebrovascular disease, which results from a thickening and hardening of the walls of the arteries in the brain. Finn was a public relations counsel to such corporate giants as Lever Brothers, Exxon, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Novartis and Coca-Cola. He was also devoted to the arts as a painter, illustrator, photographer and sculptor (notably using paper clips as his medium), and persuaded many of his clients, including the tobacco maker ...

Stephen Friedman Gallery announces the representation of Hulda Guzman   Henry Moore bronze leads the fall offerings at Shannon's   Public Art Fund unveils Gillian Wearing's sculptural tribute to Diane Arbus

Drawing on surrealism, Mexican muralism and Caribbean folk traditions, Guzmán’s junglescapes and studio scenes conjure portals to a mythic realm.

LONDON.- Stephen Friedman Gallery announced representation of Dominican artist Hulda Guzmán. Hulda Guzmán was born in 1984, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. She lives and works between Santo Domingo and the rainforest-covered mountains of Samaná, on the country’s northeast coast. Guzmán’s paintings are populated by a technicolour cast of humans, animals, anthropomorphic plants and imaginary creatures. Employing distinct architectural locations and spatial tricks such as mise en abîme, her narratives occupy contradictory, dreamlike realities. Characters lounge on ambrosial shores beside derelict flats, join dancefloors that spill into the rainforest and chase demons through chic interiors. Though rooted in Guzmán’s liberal childhood, these wittily painted gatherings also reflect her experiences of the artistic community in Samaná. Echoing the paradisial fantasies of Henri Rousseau and Paul Gauguin, Guzmán frequently i ... More

The bronze, from an edition of 9, was intended to rock back and forth, adding charm and playfulness to ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Public Art Fund is presenting British conceptual artist Gillian Wearing’s life-size bronze sculpture Diane Arbus—a tribute to the legendary photographer. Arbus was a lifelong New Yorker and often frequented Central Park, where she made photographs of everyday people. Wearing’s sculpture is on view in Doris C. Freedman Plaza at the southeast entrance to the park. It depicts Arbus with her finger on the shutter button of her iconic twin lens camera, as she might have been seen in the 1950s and 60s. Standing 5’6” tall, the sculpture is presented at street level without a plinth, directly meeting visitors. Her shoes are painted realistically to humanize the appearance of the bronze statue. A plaque bears a quote by Arbus: “If you scrutinize reality closely enough, if in some way you really, ... More

Andy Warhol's Endangered Species Portfolio sells for $1.875 million at Heritage Auctions   Agnes Hsu-Tang elected next chair of New-York Historical Society's Board of Trustees   MAXXI opens the exhibition "Thomas Hirschhorn. The Purple Line"

Andy Warhol (1928-1987), Endangered Species, 1983. Ten screenprints on Lenox museum board, 38 x 38 inches (96.5 x 96.5 cm) (sheet). Ed. 64/150.

DALLAS, TX.- A pristine-condition edition of Andy Warhol's 1983 Endangered Species portfolio sold Tuesday at Heritage Auctions for $1,875,000, the second-highest price ever realized at auction for the landmark work. The collection of 10 signed screen prints served as the centerpiece of Heritage Auctions' Oct. 19 Prints & Multiples Signature® Auction, which attracted more than 540 bidders who spent $3,439,000 on extraordinary works by Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Banksy, Marc Chagall, M.C. Escher and other art-world titans. The sell-through rate exceeded 99 percent; the sale, too, more than doubled its pre-auction estimate. "When I logged in to my computer in the hours before the live auction began, I thought I was at a Wimbledon match," says Holly Sherratt, Heritage Auctions' Director of Modern & Contemporary Art. "It was thrilling to see so many bids roll in. I watched ... More

Thomas Hirschhorn, The Purple Line © Giorgio Benni courtesy Fondazione MAXXI.

ROME.- An imposing 6-metre-high, more than 250-metre-long purple wall crosses MAXXI's Gallery 3, cutting through the sinuous spaces of the museum designed by Zaha Hadid, imprisoning the viewer and leaving the eye dazed: it’s The Purple Line, the long line conceived by Thomas Hirschhorn, one of the world's most famous and important artists, to present Pixel-Collage, a monumental series of 121 works produced between 2015 and 2017. 118 of these collages from 21 prestigious international private collections, institutions and galleries are on display at MAXXI, thereby marking the first time that almost all collages are featured together in an exhibition. Thomas Hirschhorn. The Purple Line, curated by Hou Hanru and Luigia Lonardelli, is open from 20 October 2021 to 6 March 2022. «I’ve always loved making collages. I love bringing together what shouldn’t be brought together». In these works, which are among the most ... More

The five-figure gold, leather and snakeskin Kobe Bryant cap that sold out within hours reappears at Heritage Auctions
DALLAS, TX.- There were eight hats made. Each one bore the number 24. For Kobe. They were made to honor Kobe Bryant upon his retirement in 2016. During his legendary tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers, those were the numbers he wore: 8; then, when it finally came available, 24, which had been his first number in high school. "Twenty-four is every day," Bryant once said of the number he reclaimed in 2006. "Because when you get older, your muscles start getting sore. Body starts aching. You show up to practice that day, you have to remind yourself, 'OK, this day is the most important day.'" The hats, made by New Era for its "24 Collection" and sold through AEG Merchandise, were made of black leather with a black ... More

An unassuming prince dons the velvet cloak at Ballet Theater
NEW YORK, NY.- Standing in a corner of a rehearsal studio at American Ballet Theater, dancer Thomas Forster cuts a striking figure. He’s tall, but at 35, still boyish. With his head slightly bowed, he has the air of a melancholy prince in a fairy-tale illustration, though he’s wearing a surgical mask and athletic shorts under a dark velvet cloak. Forster, one of six American Ballet Theater dancers promoted to the rank of principal in September last year, is rehearsing the entrance of Count Albrecht in Act II of “Giselle.” He performed the role once in Washington, in February 2020, a month before the pandemic shut down virtually all the performing arts. After that, he had no idea when, or if, he would get to dance it again. His debut in “Swan Lake,” which was to take place later in April, was canceled. He made a funny video about it for Ballet Theater’s “Debut Deferred” ... More

Tehran short film fest opens, with shot at Oscars for first time
TEHRAN.- Tehran's International Short Film Festival opened this week, for the first time as an Oscar-qualifying event, giving winning entries a shot at an Academy Award. The festival jury has members from the Islamic republic as well as Italy, Japan, France and Austria. The festival, now in its 38th edition and running until Sunday, earned qualification this year as a gateway to Hollywood's annual awards showcase. The event "was added as a qualifying festival in the Short Films categories this year," the the US Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences confirmed. "And it is the only current qualifying festival in Iran." The designation came despite high tensions between Washington and Tehran, which have had no diplomatic relations since 1979, before the festival began. This year's showcase also coincides with efforts to resume negotiations ... More

Rising out of the pandemic, City Ballet ushers in a new era
NEW YORK, NY.- Dance, perhaps more than any art, is one of reinvention and renewal, and New York City Ballet’s fall season showed that inevitable generational shift with particular clarity. It can be painful. When Lauren Lovette, bowing at her gorgeous farewell performance on Oct. 9, offered a tiny wave to the cheering crowd and then gave a decisive nod toward the wings — a signal to lower the curtain — I felt a hole in my heart. She’s only 29; while she won’t stop dancing entirely, she wants to devote herself to choreography. Her last movement on the stage was a deep, subterranean sigh. Then, on Sunday, came the final performance of Maria Kowroski. She burst onto the scene about the time I began writing about dance, and I always felt a bond; my pursuit could seem impossible, but then I would watch Kowroski bravely stepping ... More

Live performance is back, with new rituals joining the old ones
NEW YORK, NY.- The long-awaited return of Broadway has brought back many familiar preshow rituals — and also spurred a few that are new. One takes place a few hours before curtain time in middle of Times Square, under a canopy with a sandwich board sign proclaiming: “Broadway Show Testing Site.” It is there that some of the most dedicated theatergoers in the city — children under 12 who are ineligible for the vaccines theaters require — are taken by their parents to submit to nasal swabs so they can get the negative coronavirus test results they need to see shows. Remy Keller, a 5-year-old from Chicago who needed a test so she could see “The Lion King,” was among a crowd there on a recent Saturday, bracing herself for the swab. There were a few tears. “There’s a lot of things we all have to do to minimize the effects of the virus on vulnerable ... More

Betty Lynn, Thelma Lou on 'The Andy Griffith Show,' dies at 95
NEW YORK, NY.- Betty Lynn, who portrayed Thelma Lou, the patient girlfriend of Barney Fife, the neurotic deputy sheriff of Mayberry in the 1960s sitcom “The Andy Griffith Show,” died Saturday in Mount Airy, North Carolina. She was 95. The death was announced by the Andy Griffith Museum in Mount Airy, Griffith’s hometown and the inspiration for Mayberry. Lynn joined the cast of the show in 1961, late in the first season, for an episode in which Sheriff Andy Taylor (Griffith) plays matchmaker between Barney and Thelma Lou. Thelma Lou’s occupation through 26 episodes remained a mystery, as did her surname. Although Barney (Don Knotts) had an occasional telephone flirtation with Juanita, a diner waitress who was never seen, it was clear that Thelma Lou was Barney’s steady girl. But in a 1966 episode, after Knotts’ departure as a series ... More

A spy opera (or is it?) returns to the stage
NEW YORK, NY.- It was February 2020, and Mimi Johnson was pouring afternoon tea in the Tribeca loft she once shared with her husband, the composer Robert Ashley. Johnson was reflecting on what was then the recent revival of “Improvement (Don Leaves Linda),” by Ashley, who died in 2014 and whose innovative operas generally involved the blurry boundary of speech and singing, smooth electronic accompaniment, and enigmatic, witty storytelling. Another revival, of Ashley’s early 1990s work “eL/Aficionado,” was supposed to follow shortly after. But because of the pandemic, Johnson was forced to shelve the nearly completed project, until Roulette in Brooklyn, on whose board she sits, approached her this year about reviving the revival; “eL/Aficionado” will run for three performances at Roulette, Thursday through ...

No mask required: The joys and fears of seeing U.K. theater now
LONDON.- Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Nicolette Jones used to go to the theater with her daughter about 50 times a year. Now she’s not going at all. “Theater is my relaxation, my escape,” said Jones, 61. “The thought of sitting next to somebody who is unmasked for two hours, laughing and whatever, that is going to remove all that,” she added. Theaters here have now been allowed to open without restrictions for three months, and while many audience members have been delighted to return to live performances, inconsistent rules are troubling some fans. Unlike on Broadway, theatergoers in England are not required to wear masks in their seats or be fully vaccinated. Instead, it’s up to each venue to decide what they require. Most West End venues are asking for proof of vaccination or a negative test result at the door, but some smaller ... More
