The EY Exhibition: The Making of Rodin Installation views © Tate photography / Matt Greenwood.

LONDON.- Tate Modern presents a major new exhibition of Auguste Rodin (1840-1917). It shows how he broke the rules of classical sculpture to create a dramatically different image of the human body, mirroring the ruptures, complexities and uncertainties of the modern age. Featuring over 200 works, many of which have never been shown outside France, The EY Exhibition: The Making of Rodin offers a unique insight into Rodin’s ways of thinking and making. Thanks to a unique collaboration with the Musée Rodin, who have offered Tate unprecedented access to their collection, visitors are able to both appreciate the originality of iconic works such as the Thinker 1881 and The Three Shades 1886 as well as make fresh discoveries that reveal how the artist transformed modern sculpture. Although Rodin is best known for his bronze and marble sculptures, he personally only worked as a modeller, capturing movement, emotion, light and volume in pliable m ... More

The watercolor with its fascinating history will be called up in the auctions at Ketterer Kunst in Munich on June 17-19. Wassily Kandinsky‘s strictly geometric compositions from the Bauhaus years are his most-sought after paper works on the international auction market. “I am all the more delighted “, says Robert Ketterer, “that we were able to identify such an outstanding work.“ The auctioneer and owner of Ketterer Kunst explains: “Many Kandinsky experts did research into the work, however, its exact appearance and whereabouts remained a mystery for decades. The only hint came from the catalog raisonné of Vivian Endicott Barnett: a tiny sketch made from memory inscribed “Location: Unknown.“ With shows in Berlin, Paris ... More

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Art Gensler, an architect and entrepreneur who turned a small San Francisco architecture firm into one of the largest in the world, with projects spanning the globe, died on May 10 at his home in Mill Valley, California.

NEW YORK, NY.- Reflecting the scale and scope of a prodigious six-decade career that has unfolded while criss-crossing the Atlantic Ocean, Sir Frank Bowling’s inaugural exhibition with Hauser & Wirth is being presented in both the gallery’s London and New York locations simultaneously. With works on view spanning over 50 years of the British icon’s career from 1967 to the present day, ‘Frank Bowling – London / New York’ celebrates the ways in which one artist’s inventive approach to the materiality of paint has expanded the boundaries of abstraction. The exhibition charts Bowling’s life and work between the UK and the United States. Born in Guyana (then British Guiana) in 1934, Bowling arrived in London in 1953, graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1962. He later divided his time between the art scenes in ... More

by Francois Becker and Eric Randolph

PARIS (AFP).- In a mammoth restoration task for one of cinema's most audacious and elusive treasures, a team of obsessives has spent 12 years recreating the original seven-hour cut of Abel Gance's 1927 silent classic, "Napoleon". "It's an act of madness," admits Georges Mourier, head of the 2.5 million-euro (three-million-dollar) project. When they began in 2008, he and editor Laure Marchaut had only planned to spend a few months tidying up Gance's archives in the basement of the Cinematheque Francaise in Paris. But in the process, they realised that previous restorations had mixed up two versions shown at the original premieres: a ... More

MALMO.- On May 15, Moderna Museet Malmö opened two new exhibitions. With this summer’s exhibition in the Turbine Hall, Winds from Jericho, Zvi Goldstein’s unique work is presented for the first time in Sweden. The exhibition The Man with the Blue Face features Moderna Museet’s rich collection while tracing the expressionist quest of early modernism. The exhibition Winds from Jericho marks the introduction of Zvi Goldstein’s unique oevre in Sweden, featuring works from the last three decades. Goldstein’s artistic practice shifted focus from the centre of Western culture to its periphery already in the late 1970:s, long before postcolonialism and discussions about centre and periphery became pivotal topics in the international art world. Zvi Goldstein (b. 1947 in Romania) has lived in Jerusalem since the late 1970s and considers this to be his artistic and intellectual home. His art is rooted in both Western cont ... More

Former cinema projectionist's film poster collection takes £155,000 at Ewbank's
LONDON.- The landmark Michael Armstrong film poster and memorabilia collection has proved a sell-out success at Ewbank’s, taking more than three times expectations to total just over £155,000. The top price at the May 7 auction was £5,500 for two wooden Front of House card display frames from the former Regal Cinema in Wymondham, the late Mr Armstrong’s home town. The estimate had been just £200-400, but such was Armstrong’s standing in the local community, as well as in the film world as the champion of the movies, that this unique piece of memorabilia proved to be much sought after. Among the posters, the best seller was a 1968 British Quad example for The Beatles Yellow Submarine, which took a premium-inclusive £3,000 against hopes of £700-1,000. Beatles film posters for A Hard Day’s Night and Help sold ... More

Yes we cancan: Moulin Rouge to return in September
PARIS (AFP).- The Moulin Rouge in Paris will be high-kicking its way back on stage in September, it announced with a flourish on Monday, after the longest shut down in more than a century. The first cancan of the post-pandemic era is due to take place on September 10 under the iconic windmill in Montmartre. Twelve dancers, in matching masks and feathers, braved the morning chill outside the Moulin Rouge on Monday to reveal the opening date stitched into their dresses, much to the surprise of passing motorists on the Boulevard de Clichy. "I'm extremely happy," said 32-year-old dancer Mathilde Tutiaux. "It feels so good to finally have a date. We are desperate to see our audiences again. The first cancan of the restart will be something else. It's a very technical number and after a break of more than a year, we will have to ... More

Jack Terricloth, punk rocker with a cabaret air, dies at 50
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- To old friends who met him backstage, he was Pete Ventantonio, a punk rocker from Bridgewater, New Jersey. On his records, he sometimes preferred whimsical credits like Marcello DiTerriclothia or Favorite Singer Who Goes With Everything. But to the fans who swarmed his concerts, he was Jack Terricloth: the crooning, bellowing, devilishly smarmy vocalist and ringleader of the World/Inferno Friendship Society, a band with an ever-changing lineup that melded punk defiance with the decadent theatricality of Weimar-era cabaret. Over more than 20 years, the group built a cultlike following with a rock sound embellished by piano, violin and a brass section. Its live shows — featuring Jack Terricloth in a dark suit and slicked-back hair, like a 1930s dandy — were key to the rise of the so-called punk cabaret ... More

Bach invented. Now a pianist is trying to match him.
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- "Of course Bach is a million times greater than me,” pianist Dan Tepfer said recently. “I can still have a conversation with him.” That conversation is ongoing. While Tepfer, 39, is best known as a jazz artist, who has worked with giants like saxophonist Lee Konitz, he has also delved into Bach — with twists. In “Goldberg Variations/Variations,” Tepfer performed that monumental keyboard work, but instead of repeating each variation, as Bach’s score indicates, he improvised his own responses. Last year, homebound and intrigued by the idea that Bach’s contrapuntal lines would work just as well inverted, he recorded himself playing the “Goldbergs” on a Yamaha Disklavier, a grand piano with a high-tech player-piano function. A computer program he devised — Tepfer also has an undergraduate degree ... More

Tatjana Giorgadse presents new works at Archivio Atelier Pharaildis Van den Broeck
MILAN.- Archivio Atelier Pharaildis Van den Broeck presents in the space of Via Bragadino in Milan the first 2021 exhibition. For the first time, the Georgian artist Tatjana Giorgadse shows her new works in an Italian institution on the occasion of the PROJECT ROOM #4 curated by Irene Belfi. “Like a transformation of my perception of the world, each piece is an integral part of my reality”, the artist says. This poetic vision is integrated in Giorgadse’s artistry through a combination of precious stones and ordinary materials. Tatjana Giorgadse spent months studying Van den Broeck’s paintings and jewellery sketches from the first decade of the new millennium and, under their influence, created objects that can be described as wearable artworks. Attracted by the material nature of pictorial works, Giorgadse decided to collect materials and artefacts ... More

The show goes on for UK theatres as Covid rules ease
LONDON (AFP).- The curtain went up again in Britain's theatres this week, after a year of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, bringing hopes of recovery for the beleaguered culture sector. College lecturer Denise O'Brien, 49, seized the opportunity to visit London's Bridge Theatre on Monday, as restrictions on indoor mixing were finally eased. "It's a really controlled environment. I've always loved the theatre -- the industry is going to die if we don't go," she told AFP. Heather Alderson, a 56-year-old advertising employee, braved a downpour and booked an hour off work to visit a theatre for the first time in more than 12 months. "You can get narrative from anywhere, but nothing beats theatre in its immersiveness and the fact that it's live," she said. Agatha Christie's "The Mousetrap" -- the world's longest-running ... More

AOK May 22 auction features estate property from former owners of Martin's Tavern
DAMASCUS, VA.- If walls could talk, Martin’s Tavern in Washington, DC, would be a never-ending source of tantalizing political back stories that never made it into print. Since 1933, the beloved Georgetown restaurant has been a favorite of presidents, the press corps, sports legends and visiting dignitaries. Under the watchful eye of successive generations of the Martin family, each president from Truman through George W Bush was escorted to their favorite booth or table where, on a number of occasions, history was made. It was at Martin’s Tavern that Congressman John F Kennedy proposed to future first lady Jacqueline Bouvier. LBJ was known to discuss pending legislation there with his closest advisers, and there is evidence to suggest that spies consorted at the establishment in the 1930s and ‘40s. On May 22nd, AOK Auctions of Damascus, ... More
