Lucy Lacoste Gallery opens an exhibition of ceramics by British artist Ken Eastman

Ken Eastman, Rootie Tootie, 11h x 9.75w in.

CONCORD, MASS.- Lucy Lacoste Gallery starts the 2021 season with the esteemed British artist Ken Eastman’s exhibition Border Country, created expressly for the Gallery. The work of this modernist master centers around the idea of the vessel. He uses the vessel as a subject, to give meaning and form to an expression. Working through the medium of ceramics, Eastman can be both builder and painter handling shape and structure, as well as exploring tone and color. These latest multi-faceted pots were made from numerous slabs of clay, shaped and assembled in a spontaneous and intuitive way. This process meant that the forms couldn’t be planned beyond loose ideas about scale, proportion and complexity. These vessels with their composition of broad, sweeping planes and layers of color can be seen as landscape, painting or sculpture. Lighting on these delineated sculptures emphasizes the planes and abstract composition. The following is a cata ... More

Who designed Jill Biden's Inauguration outfit?   NY LX Pavilion designed by OLI Architecture to house Richard Serra's London Cross   Roger Mandle, museum director who helped bring art to Qatar, dies at 79

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Just like the attire of any first lady stepping into the White House before her, Jill Biden’s Inauguration Day outfit was bound to draw attention. Guesses were made about which American designer she would choose: Brandon Maxwell or Christian Siriano, whose dresses she had chosen for the Democratic National Convention? Tory Burch? Oscar de la Renta? Few — or none, perhaps — would have predicted that Biden would walk out into the cold Washington morning Wednesday in a matching blue coat and dress by Markarian, a small New York City brand whose typical aesthetic signatures include feather trims and full-body sequins. Here’s why: What is Markarian? Founded in 2017 by Alexandra O’Neill, Markarian is best known for VIP party dresses. With statement sleeves and slim silhouettes, the brand has outfitted celebrities like Laura Dern, Kerry Washington, ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Located on a private estate in Bedford, New York, LX Pavilion is a site-specific structure named for the Richard Serra sculpture it houses, London Cross (2014). Designed by OLI Architecture, which has offices in New York, Shanghai and Paris, the pavilion is designed to not just be a container but an integral component of the artistic experience, becoming spatially, figuratively, and contractually the “art” itself. Constructed in a carefully choreographed sequence with the sculpture installation, LX Pavilion is a quiet sanctuary where time and space merge. Wrapped in charred Accoya timber, the facade is intended to naturally patina marking the passage of time, yet unlike many of Serra’s outdoor sculptures that measure time and space through material transformation, London Cross is protected by this intervention. The interior of the pavilion also emphasizes transience ... More

Mandle, who from the Rhode Island School of Design to Doha was a force in art and design for decades, died on Nov. 28, 2020 at his home in Dartmouth, Mass. He was 79. Brent Lestage/The New York Times.

by Robin Pogrebin

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- When cellist Yo-Yo Ma needed a new headquarters for his Silk Road Project in 2005, Roger Mandle, then president of the Rhode Island School of Design, gave the organization a home on his campus. When a member of Qatar’s royal family was looking to make her country into an art destination in 2008, Mandle took on the development of more than a dozen museums in Doha. And when some in 2016 questioned the quixotic nature of a startup art museum in New Bedford, Massachusetts, Mandle persevered and — together with his wife, Gayle Wells Mandle — succeeded in establishing the Massachusetts Design Art & Technology Institute. Mandle died Nov. 28 at his home in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. He was 79. His wife, a mixed-media painter, said the cause was cancer. “Roger Mandle had the soul of an artist, the character of a gentleman ... More

Banksy's works come 'In Focus' as Heritage Auctions holds curated sale   Tom Friedman's 10-foot tall sculpture looking up displayed at Rockefeller Center   Stolen 500-year-old Leonardo da Vinci copy found in Naples flat

The highly sought-after Stop and Search, another signed work from 2007, is a centerpiece in this sale, perhaps because its subject matter, too, never seems to age.

DALLAS, TX.- Banksy, not so long ago an anonymous art-world prankster and cultural provocateur, once more enters a new year as one of the world's most ubiquitous, revered and debated artists — and most sought-after, as evidenced by the record prices realized at Heritage Auctions for his works in the last 12 months. There remains a deep and profound global appetite for the man who shattered the barricades between the highbrow and lowbrow, who's adored as much by the establishment as the hellraisers, and who helped forever blur the lines between irony, satire and sincerity. For this reason, Heritage Auctions is launching its "In Focus" series devoted to a single artist with Banksy as the inaugural subject. Bidding is scheduled to open Jan. 20 for this special online event, titled In Focus: Banksy, with the live auction set for Feb. 10. "The In Focus events are smaller curated sales ... More

The mold for Friedman’s Looking Up was created with crushed aluminum foil pans.

NEW YORK, NY.- Looking Up, a 10-foot tall stainless steel sculpture by American artist Tom Friedman, depicting a quasi-human figure gazing up to the heavens, is being displayed at the entrance of Rockefeller Center’s Channel Gardens located on 5th Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets, Manhattan, from January 20 – March 19. The mold for Friedman’s Looking Up was created with crushed aluminum foil pans which, through a process of lost wax casting, retains the imprint of the original materials. The magnificent piece, full of awe and wonder, is a perfect example of Friedman’s interest in the supernatural and experiential. “Since its inception, visitors have marveled while ‘looking up’ at the unmatched architecture and design of Rockefeller Center’s campus, from The Rink at Rockefeller Center in the original sunken plaza to Top of the Rock Observation Deck atop 30 Rockefeller Plaza, so it is especially fitting to feature Tom Friedman’s incredible work in our 2 ...

It is a copy of Leonardo's famous work that in 2017 became the most expensive painting ever sold, fetching $450 million at a Christie's auction. Eduardo Munoz Alvarez/Getty Images/AFP.

ROME (AFP).- Italian police have found a 500-year-old copy of Leonardo da Vinci's Salvator Mundi in a Naples flat and returned it to a church that had no idea it had been stolen. Officers said late Monday they had arrested the 36-year-old owner of the apartment on suspicion of receiving stolen goods, after the painting was found in his bedroom cupboard. Depicting Jesus Christ with his hand raised in a blessing and holding a crystal orb, the painting is part of the Doma Museum collection within the San Domenico Maggiore church complex in Naples. It is a copy of Leonardo's famous work that in 2017 became the most expensive painting ever sold, fetching $450 million at a Christie's auction. But the collection has been without visitors for months due to coronavirus restrictions and nobody had reported it missing. It was not immediately clear how the police came to discover the theft of the ... More

Almine Rech opens an exhibition of works by Marcus Jansen   Cuban artists showcased in Modern, Contemporary and Latin American Art online sale   The Metropolitan Museum of Art's directorship receives endowment from Marina Kellen French

PARIS.- Any discussion of Marcus Jansen’s work would be invalid as long as there is no mention of his intense life journey, the circumstances that influenced the way he is experiencing the world, and the way he conveys his emotions and concerns into his art. Jansen’s childhood years in the Bronx and Queens (New York) in the 1970s were in stark contrast to his adolescent years in Monchengladbach, Germany, where he went to art school and was exposed to European culture and lifestyle. After serving eight years in the US military and getting a first-hand experience of some of the most devastating and crucial events of the 20th century, he went back to his genuine love for art and used it as a channel for his thoughts, worries, fears, and emotions. This complexity of influences directly impacts his creative output, which consists of compounded storytelling images constructed in an abstracted or surreal setting ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Eleven works by three leading artists from the Cuban collective known as Los Diez Pintores Concretos (the Ten Concrete Painters) lead Bonhams Modern, Contemporary & Latin American Art Online Sale which runs from January 26 – February 4, 2021. The 150-lot auction offers a curated selection of work, not only by the most recognized and coveted artists of Modern, Contemporary, and Latin American art, but also by its rising stars. Andrew Huber, Bonhams specialist in Post-War and Contemporary Art in New York said: “At Bonhams, we continually strive to feature the finest work created by sought-after artists from all backgrounds. Los Diez Pintores Concretos have been monumental in reshaping the narrative of art history worldwide; they are finally getting the well-deserved – and in my view long overdue - attention to their exceptional work. This reexamination has pulled back the curtain on other previously underrepresented art ... More

An avid supporter of the arts, both in the United States and abroad, Marina Kellen French is the vice president of the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation and president of the Marina Kellen French Foundation.

NEW YORK, NY.- The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced today the endowment of the Museum's directorship position, made possible by a generous donation from the Marina Kellen French Foundation and the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation. In recognition of this major gift—which will also provide important support for the Museum's general operating expenses—the role of Director has been renamed the Marina Kellen French Director. Max Hollein, Director of The Met since 2018, is the position's first incumbent, effective immediately. Daniel H. Weiss, President and CEO of The Met, said, "We are immensely grateful to Marina Kellen French for this remarkable gift, which helps ensure the Museum's strong artistic leadership for many years to come. For more than 70 years—almost half of The Met's history—her family has championed the arts and enabled ... More

Gladstone Gallery opens an exhibition of works by David Rappeneau   Tim Van Laere Gallery opens its first solo exhibition of Marcel Dzama's work   Exhibition of new work by Doug Aitken opens at Regen Projects

BRUSSELS.- I don’t know anything about David Rappeneau and nor does anybody else here. This is OK. It means there’s only the luxurious mystery of his new paintings to contemplate without any extraneous interpretative trash, much like how you experience God’s creation (if S/He/They exist) without any backstory spelt out in the stars. Religious questions, matters of faith, are inescapable: maybe because ††††††††††††††††††††††††††† is the only title here, a mini-Golgotha; maybe because they’re paintings of vulnerable flesh on show in the midst of a plague. Given the stylistic kinkiness of the bodies he offers us— the hypertrophic femme boy oozing over a car in what could be a Balenciaga ad; the descendent of Storm from X-Men lording ... More

Marcel Dzama, What sort of world is possible?, 2020. Ink, watercolor, and graphite on paper, 31 x 23 cm.

ANTWERP.- Tim Van Laere Gallery is presenting its first solo exhibition of Marcel Dzama entitled The Moon is Following Me. Including drawings, sculptures, dioramas and a film, this exhibition marks the artist’s first solo presentation in Belgium. Marcel Dzama (°1974 Winnipeg, Canada. Lives and works in New York) has developed an immediately recognisable visual language that investigates human action and motivation, as well as the blurred relationship between the real and the subconscious. Drawing equally from folk vernacular as from art-historical and contemporary influences, Dzama’s work visualises a universe of childhood fantasies and otherworldly fairy tales. Dzama's image repertoire includes a wide range of art-historical quotations. One can recognize ballet costumes by Oskar Schlemmer or Francis Picabia, for example, and direct references to Francisco de Goya, Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Beuys. However, it's not just ... More

Installation view of Doug Aitken Flags and Debris at Regen Projects, Los Angeles, January 16 – March 13, 2021 © Doug Aitken, Courtesy Regen Projects, Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Regen Projects is presenting Flags and Debris, an exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist Doug Aitken. The works form an ecosystem of interconnected mediums, mixing dance, performance, film, sculpture, and handmade objects. Each plays off the other, creating a choreography of images, language, and sound. The exhibition comprises all new work conceived in the last 10 months, a time of profound change in the face of the pandemic. The body of work reflects the tension collectively felt between our isolation from the physical landscape of the exterior world and newly created spaces for turning inward to explore the subconscious landscape. At heart, the works are a portrait of a society moving toward the future. Flags and Debris consists of a new series of handmade fabric wall hangings and a hallucinatory multi-screen ... More

Heritage Auctions' January Comics & Comic Art event sets records and smashes expectations
DALLAS, TX.- Heritage Auctions began the new year where it left the old one: smashing records and shattering expectations during a Comics and Comic Art event. The latest, held Jan. 14-17, realized $12.11 million — more than 50% above pre-sale estimates, the highest percentage above expectation in the category's history. More than 5,000 bidders from around the globe participated, too, walking away with more than 99.9% of the more than 1,100 lots offered that ranged from Batman to Pokémon, from superheroes to Super Mario Brothers. Indeed, Pokémon and video games each surpassed $1 million in sales all by themselves. Numbers do not lie. This auction was a success by any measure and proof, yet again, that Heritage remains the world's leading auction house for comic books, comic art and collectibles. "Item for item ... More

A New Orleans Mardi Gras with a different sort of mask
NEW ORLEANS (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- In January 2020, Polly Watts estimated how much alcohol she would need to make it through Mardi Gras at her bar, Avenue Pub — and then ordered considerably more than that. It is a practice she and other bar owners here use to lock in savings that many liquor companies offer in the early months of the year. “We had an Armageddon-level liquor stock,” Watts said. “It usually lasts us a few months.” New Orleans has again entered Mardi Gras season — the big finale, Fat Tuesday, is Feb. 16 — and Watts, like many bar owners, has yet to sell much of the alcohol she purchased a year ago, just before the pandemic halted the city’s famous nightlife as the high season for festivals and tourism was set to begin. She doesn’t expect to go through her overstock of vodka, whiskey and beer anytime soon, even though ... More

Major new study celebrates the career and legacy of trailblazing artist and educator Luise Kaish
NEW YORK, NY.- Luise Clayborn Kaish (1925–2013) was a pioneer. A key figure in the New York art scene of the late 20th century, her multidisciplinary practice and process-oriented work spanned a range of mediums, materials, techniques, and themes. The strength and breadth of her work—monumental sculptures in bronze, oil paintings, watercolors, lithographs, collage—and the prestigious awards and fellowships she received set her apart as an early female leader in the visual arts. The publication Luise Kaish: An American Art Legacy celebrates her immense talent, highly individual point of view, far-reaching influence, pursuit of the sublime, and passion for life. Dedicated to absorbing world cultures through travel and research, Kaish studied a broad range of subjects from architecture, design, and engineering to spiritualism, metaphysics, and ... More

Tang Teaching Museum announces publication of 'Culture as Catalyst'
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY.- The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College announces a new publication on the most urgent issues of the day. Culture as Catalyst is a collection of compelling dialogues and new writings by artists, scholars, activists, and influential thinkers who present new perspectives that disrupt the status quo by encouraging a “getting comfortable with discomfort” attitude to work through big ideas to drive change. Edited by Isolde Brielmaier, the first Curator at Large at the Tang Teaching Museum, Culture as Catalyst accompanies the 2017–2019 Accelerator Series of public conversations she organized at the Museum to shed new light on the topics of whiteness, migration, mass incarceration, feminism, monuments, citizenship, cultural appropriation, forgiveness, and food justice.

Shani Peters is CAPE's 2021 Artist-in-Residence
JACKSON, MS.- Mississippi Museum of Art’s Center for Art and Public Exchange today announced Shani Peters (b.1981) as its 2021 national artist-in-residence. Starting in early spring 2021, Peters—a multidisciplinary artist and educator based in Harlem—will embark on a multi-part project, Collective Care for Black Mothers and Caretakers. Incorporating aspects of her multi-faceted community-based practice, Peters’ public, project-based, collaborative work considers painful truths and creates opportunities for collective momentum toward learning, wisdom sharing, and community exchange. Her process is informed by her lived experience and in-depth research as she examines the politics of shared society to reveal individual and community approaches to managing the weights on and demands of Black mothers and caretakers. During her yearlong ... More

Klaus von Nichtssagend exhibits a series of photographs by Barry Stone
NEW YORK, NY.- Barry Stone is presenting a series of photographs in an exhibition entitled Drift in the main gallery at Klaus von Nichtssagend January 15 through February 21. This new work emanated from a car accident Stone’s family survived while on a summer road trip from their home in Austin, Texas to Bailey Island, Maine. In addition to smashing the family car, the crash caused a portfolio of Stone’s photographs taken the previous summer to scatter across the highway. Despite this harrowing encounter, Stone at once began photographing the scene of the accident, and as the family resumed their journey north, he continued to take pictures of their trip. This exhibition features the photos taken that day and that summer, including pictures of his damaged portfolio, furthering Stone’s continued interests in the ways the apparatus of the camera ...

Top British musicians hit out at Brexit impact on tours
LONDON (AFP).- More than 100 leading musicians on Wednesday criticised the government's Brexit deal with the European Union writing in an open letter that performers had been "shamefully failed". Leading musical lights including Elton John, The Who's Roger Daltrey and classical conductor Simon Rattle wrote in The Times newspaper that the government's failure to secure visa-free travel for musicians would "tip many performers over the edge". Pink Floyd's Roger Waters, Ed Sheeran, Oasis's Liam Gallagher and Queen's Brian May also signed the letter, which spoke of a "gaping hole where the promised free movement for musicians should be". They outlined how red tape around touring and additional work permits for British performances in Europe will make "many tours unviable, especially for young emerging musicians who are already ...

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU opens two dynamic spring exhibitions
MIAMI, FLA.- This January, The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU will launch its spring programming, celebrating topics that include Afrofuturism and the concept of cyclical time. Since the debut of Marvel’s Black Panther (2018), the focus on Afrofuturism in the United States has skyrocketed. Mark Dery, American author, lecturer and cultural critic, defined the term in 1994 in an attempt to understand why African Americans did not engage with science fiction. Dery’s assertion that Black people have “other stories to tell about culture, technology, and things to come” can be seen in the vibrant visual culture linked to Black speculative art. Afrofuturism embraces utopic spaces where equality is valued and realized. According to Reynaldo Anderson, founder of Black Speculative Arts Movement, this aesthetic practice integrates Afrodiasporic ... More

Poet Amanda Gorman, age 22, hails democracy at Biden inaugural
WASHINGTON (AFP).- Poet Amanda Gorman on Wednesday became a sudden star at age 22 at President Joe Biden's inauguration as she recited verse inspired by the Capitol attack, touching on how democracy "can never be permanently defeated." Gorman was the youngest poet to recite at an inauguration, a role first given to Robert Frost by John F. Kennedy in 1961, after First Lady Jill Biden saw one of Gorman's readings and invited her to participate at the Capitol steps. Gorman said that she had been writing a few lines a day but stayed awake at night out of a compulsion to complete her inauguration poem, "The Hill We Climb," following the January 6 ransacking of the Capitol by supporters of then president Donald Trump who hoped to undo Biden's victory. "We've seen a force that would shatter our nation rather than share it / Would ... More
