MILAN.- From 30 October 2020 to 21 March 2021, the Gallerie d’Italia – Piazza Scala (the Intesa Sanpaolo museum complex in Milan) hosts the exhibition Tiepolo. Venice, Milan, Europe, curated by Fernando Mazzocca and Alessandro Morandotti with general coordination by Gianfranco Brunelli. To commemorate the 250th anniversary of Giambattista Tiepolo’s death (Venice 1696 - Madrid 1770), the first exhibition of the artist’s work is being shown in Milan. In the logical and concise exhibition path designed by the curators to help track Tiepolo’s international success - from his years of apprenticeship in Venice to his consecration within the major European courts - extraordinary masterpieces are revealed. These range from the youthful mythological creations of the Gallerie dell’Accademia of Venice to the Martyrdom of St. Bartholomew, painted in 1722 for the San Stae church in Venice (a true museum of early ei ...

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- The story of why Joni Mitchell quit piano lessons is also the story of how Joni Mitchell wrote her first song. She was around 7, and the tune was called “Robin Walk” — “it was real bouncy,” she remembers in a spirited interview with Cameron Crowe for the liner notes of her new archival collection, “Joni Mitchell Archives — Vol. 1: The Early Years (1963-1967).” “I played it for my piano teacher, who slapped me across the wrist with a ruler for playing by ear,” Mitchell, now 76, continues. “She said, ‘Why would you play by ear when you can have the masters under your fingers?’” The young Joan Anderson retorted, “Well, the masters had to play by ear to come up with that stuff.” That was her last piano lesson. She realized, “I didn’t have any masters I wanted to follow.” It would be more than a decade before she wrote her ... More

ZURICH.- The continuing influence of the work of Geta Brătescu is celebrated in two special presentations in Zurich this autumn. Hauser & Wirth Publishers have collaborated with the Swiss fashion house Akris and its Creative Director Albert Kriemler to create a unique display of materials from their archive specially selected by Kriemler. Kriemler has long been inspired by the work of Brătescu and collaborated with the artist and Marian Ivan of Ivan Gallery for Akris’ Spring/Summer 2019 collection. In addition, the presentation celebrates the book conceived by Brătescu and Hauser & Wirth Publishers in 2019, ‘Game of Forms’, which launches publicly on occasion of the opening of ‘Geta Brătescu x Albert Kriemler. A Collaboration’. Complementing this display is ‘Geta Brătescu. The Gesture, The Drawing’ at Hauser & Wirth ... More

VENICE.- Victoria Miro is presenting an exhibition of works made in New York from 1979–80, focusing on a rare series of colour photographs by Francesca Woodman staged in her New York apartment. In her short career Francesca Woodman (1958–1981) produced an extraordinary body of work acclaimed for its singularity of style and range of innovative techniques. From the beginning, her focus was on the relationship with her body as both the object of the gaze and the active subject behind the camera. Following the gallery’s 2018 exhibition of works made in Italy in 1977–1978, the works in this exhibition centre on a rare series of colour photographs that Woodman staged in her New York apartment in 1979. In these images, and black-and- white photographs also made in New York during the same period, Woodman contorts and inserts her body into space and architecture, at times even ‘performing’ classical ...

Enzo Mari, industrial designer who kept things simple, dies at 88   Heritage Auctions announces the first-ever sale of 'Game of Thrones' storyboards and conceptual paintings   Rijksmuseum opens major exhibition of leading Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken

The Italian architect and designer Enzo Mari posing in his studio in front of some models of his projects. Milan, 1974.

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Enzo Mari, an irascible industrial designer, artist and polemicist who made simple, beautiful objects, including toys and traffic bollards, that delighted generations of Italians and design buffs all over the world, died Oct. 19 at a hospital in Milan. He was 88. The cause was complications of the coronavirus, said Hans Ulrich Obrist, who, with Francesca Giacomelli, curated a major retrospective of his work at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, which opened two days before his death. Mari’s wife, Lea Vergine, an art critic, theoretician and performance artist, also died from the coronavirus on Oct. 20, at 82. Mari was known as much for his grumpy pronouncements on the state of design — which he disdained as mostly unnecessary and a waste of labor and material — as for his own designs. His most beloved works include an elegant platter made from a slightly bent I-beam (a ... More

Game of Thrones Jon Snow Awakens Storyboards by William Simpson Group of 2 (HBO, 2011).

DALLAS, TX.- Heritage Auctions announced the first-ever auction of Game of Thrones preliminary conceptual paintings and storyboards from the collection of their creator, acclaimed artist William Simpson. More than 40 pieces will be spread across 18 lots in the Dallas-based auction house's Nov. 14 Entertainment & Music Memorabilia event, each one a singular keepsake from the acclaimed HBO series based on the novels of George R.R. Martin. These are the rough drafts of entertainment history, the black-and-white sketches and vibrant paintings eventually brought to life by armies of actors, directors, producers, makeup artists, prosthetics makers and special-effects technicians (for starters). In these works, Simpson bridged the gulf between the writers' boundless imaginations, in which anything was possible and everything was doable, and the real world's limitations. "You're interpreting almost the idea of what a director might see in their head,” sa ... More

Ed van der Elsken Portrait of Karel Appel 1958-1963 Scratched gelatin silver print Collection Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam ©Ed van der Elsken.

AMSTERDAM.- This autumn the Rijksmuseum presents Ed van der Elsken: Crazy World, an exhibition focusing on the personal archive that sheds new light on the most celebrated 20th century photographer in the Netherlands. The recent acquisition of Ed van der Elsken’s artistic estate has provided the ideal opportunity to shed light on the working practice of the Dutch photographer. The display of more than a hundred objects – including photographs, photobook designs and contact sheets – invites the viewer to look over the shoulder of the artist at work. Ed van der Elsken: Crazy World runs from 30 October 2020 to 10 January 2021. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Rijksmuseum and the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam. Photographers generally take more pictures than they publish or exhibit, and that was certainly true in the case of Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990). A large quantity ... More

BERLIN.- Galerie Max Hetzler will open the solo exhibition And thus we existed with paintings, drawings and sculptures by Glenn Brown at Bleibtreustraße 45 and the gallery's new space at Bleibtreustraße 15/16. One of Britain’s most revered contemporary artists, Brown works across painting, drawing and sculpture, taking as his source material reproduced imagery from art history and popular culture. At the core of his practice is the blending of artistic periods and stylistic genres. Transcending time and pictorial conventions, Brown’s work disarms common distinctions between beauty and abjection, heightening the emotive tension present within. The sources for Brown’s practice are found in the works of Old Masters, Surrealists or artists such as Karel Appel, Frank Auerbach or Georg Baselitz, as well as sci-fi painters like Chris Foss. Starting with published or downloaded versions of his sources, he ... More

At a pivotal time in reconsidering equity across the country and in arts institutions, the Next Step Award aims to identify strong emerging or evolving voices whose work deserves greater recognition. The annual award will support underrepresented US-based artists at a critical juncture in their artistic development. It will also support the presentation of diverse opinions, as well as timely lens-based work that’s relevant to today’s visual culture ... More

BRUSSELS.- Two years after his last exhibition at Galerie Templon, Belgian artist Jan Van Imschoot, the self-proclaimed master of “anarcho-baroque”, is returning to his native country to present a new series of restyled still lifes. In Le bouillon de onze heures (the 11 o’clock broth), Van Imschoot explores the art of the 17th-century Northern School. The artist looked for inspiration to the silent universe of one of its masters: Willem Claesz Heda. Following in the footsteps of the one of the most illustrious of Flemish painters, Van Imschoot reworks the still life form to reflect his distinctive universe, restoring its noble status thanks to his virtuosity and mastery of the subject. Against dark backgrounds lit up by flashes of flamboyant colour, he immerses us in 17th-century Flemish bourgeois life, a gleaming world of luxury tableware, sophisticated dishes and precious silk tablecloths. ...

Yes, we liked the Berkshires shows. Here's $2 million.
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- The calls came in late August. A couple who had moved up to the Berkshires during the pandemic had seen the first two union-approved theatrical productions of the summer and were impressed. Now they had a question: What would it cost to keep those theaters intact for another six months? The couple introduced themselves to the leaders of one theater over Zoom and to the others under a tent. And now those conversations have borne fruit: a little more than $1 million for each Western Massachusetts theater, enough to preserve their staffs and facilities through the winter. “I was like, ‘What?’” recalled Julianne Boyd, artistic director of one of the theaters, the Barrington Stage Company. “My development director almost passed out.” The gifts, to Barrington Stage and the Berkshire Theater Group, have ...

With morbid humour, Viennese look death in the eye
VIENNA (AFP).- Even in midst of a deadly pandemic, the Viennese seek to look death straight in the eye -- an attitude on display at a morbidly humorous museum devoted to death and burial. Right below the funeral parlour of the Austrian capital's famous Central Cemetery, burial shrouds and coffins have been on display since 1967, making the Vienna Funeral Museum the first museum to trace how we mourn the dead. It is perhaps fitting, given the local expression: "Death must be a Viennese". "A lot of people are probably afraid of death, but it's inevitable -– along with taxes! –- so it's a good idea to show that things haven't changed that much," says visitor Jack Curtin, a Vienna resident of American origin in his 70s. After a day spent touring the graves of the great and the good, he has taken in the museum collection together with a friend, ... More

Socially distanced samba seeks to revive lost bliss in Brazil
RIO DE JANEIRO (AFP).- Few things say Rio de Janeiro like a "roda de samba" legendary jam session where musicians sit in a circle gushing out Brazil's most beloved music and a tight crowd of beer-guzzling revelers surrounds them. But the coronavirus pandemic has forced the performers who keep this tradition alive to adapt. "We don't sit in a circle anymore. We play on a stage in front of the audience," said Moacyr Luz, 62, founder of the Samba do Trabalhador (Worker's Samba), which held a Monday evening roda de samba (samba circle) for 15 years until the pandemic hit. Luz, a giant of Brazilian music who is up for a Latin Grammy this year, said playing samba without a crowd was like a footballer scoring a goal without celebrating. "It doesn't feel natural. But at least the samba is flowing. We're living in a time of transformation, so everybody has ... More

The San Francisco Symphony plunges into a new world
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Esa-Pekka Salonen didn’t expect to make his entrance at the San Francisco Symphony with a virtual premiere. But it’s fitting. Salonen, a conductor and composer who has branded himself an industry innovator — an eager adopter of apps and virtual reality — is taking the helm of the orchestra of the world’s tech capital. And the first thing it will play under his leadership as music director, Nico Muhly’s “Throughline,” is a bellwether in the emerging genre of works created for the constraints, and possibilities, of music-making in our moment. Orchestra performances, in the traditional sense, are rare these days. The coronavirus pandemic forced the closure of concert halls across the United States in March; few are open now, and none are operating at anything approaching capacity. The industry has been ravaged, ... More

CINCINNATI, OH.- The Taft Museum of Art’s Love This House Campaign will raise the critical funding needed to ensure the future stability of the Taft’s 200-year-old historic house as part of the Museum’s Bicentennial Infrastructure Project. The Museum is seeking to raise $10.7 million by Spring 2022 and secure a 4:1 matching grant for $750,000 through the National Endowment for the Humanities. In advance of the Museum’s celebration of the historic house’s bicentennial in 2020, the Taft embarked on an extensive review of the Museum’s operational and infrastructure needs in late 2015. Over the course of 36 months, key collaborators worked to create a master plan for the Museum campus to understand the needs of the collection and the visitors, complete a thorough analysis of the scope of capital projects needed to maintain ...

Norway's National Museum stores a copy of its entire collection in the permafrost in arctic Svalbard
OSLO.- Deep inside a mountain in the arctic Svalbard archipelago, some of the most important items of the world’s memory are preserved in the permafrost. The Arctic World Archive is situated in a former coal mine outside Longyearbyen, in conditions that are optimal for long term data storage. In order to keep its invaluable artworks safe for the future, the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Norway has deposited a copy of its entire collection of 400,000 objects in the Arctic World Archive's vault.

The Western Wall, Salvador Dalí's only rendition of a holy site, heads to auction
DALLAS, TX.- The only known Salvador Dalí painting of the Western Wall in Jerusalem will find a new home when it crosses the block in Heritage Auctions' Modern & Contemporary Art Auction Nov. 19.Dalí's Le Mur des Lamentations (estimate: $400,000-800,000) reflects the legendary Spanish artist's keen interest in people's different religious faiths. "Dalí was fascinated by religious ideas and subject matter,” Heritage Auctions Vice President of Modern & Contemporary Art Leon Benrimon said. "He created many different series on religious ideas, but what makes this piece really special is that it is the only rendition of an actual holy site. It's a wonderful tie-in of the Western Wall, where all three monotheistic religions congregate.” A leading proponent of Surrealism, Dalí is best known for his surrealist compositions like The Persistence ...

On a day like today, Anglo-French artist Alfred Sisley was born
October 30, 1839. Alfred Sisley (30 October 1839 - 29 January 1899) was an Impressionist landscape painter who was born and spent most of his life in France, but retained British citizenship. He was the most consistent of the Impressionists in his dedication to painting landscape en plein air (i.e., outdoors). He never deviated into figure painting and, unlike Renoir and Pissarro, never found that Impressionism did not fulfill his artistic needs. In this image: French businessman Pierre de Gunzbourg, flanked by his son Vivien, left, looks at the painting, "Soleil de Printemps, Le Loing, " (Spring Sun, Le Loing) by impressionist Alfred Sisley at the Paris courthouse, Friday, June 18, 2004.
