NEW YORK, NY.- Anselm Kiefer is one of the most important and challenging artists of the 20th century. Through the use of unconventional mediums, his works are an unflinching examination of the human experience. With the newly unveiled permanent installation at the Pantheon in Paris and 4 new monumental paintings on display by Gagosian at Le Bourget, the artist is having something of a renaissance. ARTBnk reviewed 10 of Kiefer’s works offered in Evening and Day Sales at Sotheby's, Christie's, and Phillips in the second half of 2020 to measure the current performance of the artist's market as we begin 2021. Based on the final sale prices, we'll examine the performance of the low and middle value ... More

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Six Dr. Seuss books will no longer be published because of their use of offensive imagery, according to the business that oversees the estate of the children’s author and illustrator. In a statement Tuesday, Dr. Seuss Enterprises said that it had decided last year to end publication and licensing of the books by Theodor Seuss Geisel. The titles include his first book writing under the pen name Dr. Seuss, “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” (1937), and “If I Ran the Zoo” (1950). “These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,” Dr. Seuss Enterprises said in the statement.

Clinton Bailey's archival photos of Bedouins, in Jerusalem, Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021. Dan Balilty/The New York Times.

by Isabel Kershner

JERUSALEM (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- When Clinton Bailey first began documenting Bedouin life in the 1960s, the nomadic tribes lived pretty much as their ancestors, raising livestock, wandering in search of pastures and pitching tents under the stars. Bailey would join their migrations in the southern Israeli Negev desert and the Sinai Peninsula for weeks on camel back. They would try their luck at planting grains in the winter, he said, then return months later for the harvest. With a tape recorder, camera and jeep, he spent the next 50 years recording Bedouin oral poetry, tribal negotiations and trials, interviews with elders, weddings and rituals, proverbs and stories. “I decided to try to capture that culture,” Bailey said. “I could already see it was beginning to disappear.” Now 84, Bailey recently donated his archive of 350 hours of audio tape, photos and slides to the National Library of ...

The portrait is not only an exceptional painting by Sher-Gil, completed when the artist was barely nineteen years old, it is also a testament of the beautiful friendship between the Sher-Gil sisters and Denyse that was built on mutual admiration and love for each other and lasted well beyond the time they lived in the same country. Nishad Avari, Specialist and Head of Sale for South Asian Modern + Contemporary Art, comments: “It is an honor to present this ... More

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are presenting their first solo exhibition by John Waters at the Los Angeles gallery. Hollywood’s Greatest Hits features a selection of works, most of which have never been seen before in LA, that shed light on the artist’s decades-long, wide-ranging art practice, and in particular, Waters’ humorous and irreverent takes on the movie industry. The over 30 works on view encompass videos, photographs, sculptures and installations that skewer film tropes and culture while also offering cutting, but loving, critiques of mass media, celebrity and insider art-world knowledge. In the early 1990s, Waters began shooting photographs straight from his television screen. The results were grainy, arty-looking images that he pieced together into evocative photomontages, creating ... More

GENEVA.- The Museum of Art and History in Geneva has begun a radical process of transformation towards a forward-looking museum model. First opened in 1910, the Swiss museum currently spans 7,000 sqm over five stories, housing an impressive collection of some 650,000 items ranging from archaeological artefacts to Byzantine art and Classical antiquities to modern paintings. Now, under the helm of its recently appointed Director Marc-Olivier Wahler, the historical institution is launching a new programming strategy aiming at critically re-contextualising and showcasing its collection. To mark this significant milestone, MAH has unveiled a new visual identity and announced expansion plans, leading on a major urban development project which will materialise as an inclusive and integrated museum campus at the heart of Geneva. To launch this new phase in the museum’s history, Marc-Olivier Wahler gave carte blanche to Vienn ... More

Omer Tiroche Gallery opens online-only exhibition "The Power of Advertising"   Sunny NY: A new, artist-run gallery opens in the East Village   Benita Raphan, visionary filmmaker, dies at the age of 58

Installation view.

LONDON.- Omer Tiroche Gallery is presenting the exhibition, The Power of Advertising, which examines the work of five leading modern artists who started their careers working in graphic design, sign painting or advertising. The exhibition aims to illustrate how the visual styles and tropes of advertising’s golden age became a key influence in modern art movements, including Surrealism and Pop Art. Advertising first became a major societal force in the 1920s, just as Surrealism was becoming the predominant artistic style in Europe. Before gaining international success as a fine artist, René Magritte worked as a freelance graphic designer from 1924, producing advertisements for brands including Alfa Romeo. While he would start to exhibit his work in 1927, he never abandoned the commercial world. With his brother, Magritte established his own advertising agency, Studio Dongo, and continued to create posters, music covers and advertisem ... More

The gallery is run by a team of artists, educators, and professionals who value social and artistic complexity.

NEW YORK, NY.- Sunny NY is presenting Sunny Side Up, a group exhibition featuring Johnny Abrahams, Kadar Brock, Rick Briggs, Keltie Ferris, Andrea McGinty, Brian Kokoska, Shawn Kuruneru, Abby Lloyd, Lauren Luloff, Adrianne Rubenstein, Chloe Seibert, Clayton Schiff, Nicole Wittenberg and Margo Wolowiec. This is the gallery’s inaugural exhibition. Sunny NY is an artist run gallery located in the East Village. The gallery originated in the pandemic against the rapidly changing landscape of New York’s artworld. The title playfully highlights the steady optimism of artistic community in the face of adversity. For this exhibition, the gallery has painted the floors yellow. The artists in this show are preoccupied with a range of artistic approaches including process-based abstraction, issues of representation and identity, and material exploration. Johnny Abrahams and Shawn Kuruneru use a limited palette to explore the graphic and painterly potential of abstract painting. ... More

Benita Raphan was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2019.

by Julia Rock & Miriam Kuznets

NEW YORK, NY.- Benita Raphan, visionary filmmaker, died in January 2021 at the age of 58. Her life's work about geniuses garnered multiple awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2019. Her visual portraits examined the eccentric and brilliant inner lives of iconic figures, including R. Buckminster Fuller, John Nash, and Helen Keller. Her most recent film, “Up to Astonishment,” explored the life and work of Emily Dickinson As Benita told StudioDaily: “I am interested in revisiting a life or a career from the very start, from the beginning; the basic concept as initial thought, as an impulse, as an ineffable compulsion, an intuition; to reframe and reinvent an action as simple as one pair of hands touching pencil to paper." Her films appeared on the Sundance Channel, HBO, PBS, and Channel Four Television in the UK, and they were screened at numerous festivals including ... More

Carvalho Park opens the first exhibition of Paris-based artist Garance Vallée in the United States
BROOKLYN, NY.- Carvalho Park announces the first exhibition of Paris-based artist, designer and architect, Garance Vallée, in the United States. Portrait de Famille, a solo exhibition, features a suite of paintings, drawings and sculptures – of Vallée’s distinct and indelible language. Portrait de Famille, is on view at Carvalho Park in Brooklyn until March 20. Vallée’s scenes are an invitation into her singular vision. Of an articulated Surrealist doctrine, these interior spaces are suspended between representation and non, volume and silhouette, tangibility and fiction, inquiry and play. These are inhabitable, contemplative spaces, filled with precise forms. At once environment and still life, Vallée’s scenes tilt towards abstraction as forms oscillate between two and three-dimensionality. Vallée’s objects tempt us to pluck them from the picture – from a place we ... More

Regis Philbin memorabilia auction to raise money for Bronx Food Bank
MOUNT KISCO, NY.- A collection of television history will cross the block at The Benefit Shop Foundation, Inc. in its Red Carpet auction on Wednesday, March 24, at 10 am, when it offers items donated by the family of the late Regis Philbin. The longtime TV host was once dubbed the hardest working man in show business and given the “outregis” nickname by one of his longtime colleagues Kathie Lee Gifford. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame in 1953 and serving in the U.S. Navy, Philbin (1931-2020) began an illustrious career in television. He started out as a page for the Tonight Show before getting his big break in the late 1960s as Joey Bishop’s sidekick on The Joey Bishop Show. It was here working with Bishop, and developing an on-air rapport, that Philbin has said he learned how to interview people and set him on his ... More

Design Museum Holon unveils "Black Box: Objects from the Collection of Design Museum Holon"
HOLON.- Design Museum Holon presents Black Box, exposing objects from the museum’s ‘black box’ of treasures that have typically been reserved for preservation purposes and limited viewing. The exhibition brings to mind a visit to a historical cabinet of wonders, one that remained largely invisible and inaccessible to the public. Curated by Design Museum Holon staff, Black Box divulges pieces by local and international designers, design studios and manufacturers that have been preserved behind-the-scenes in the museum’s collection room. The exhibition reveals a range of objects that have remained largely inaccessible until now. The Museum’s Black Box exhibition shows everyday objects from stone tools, to vacuums, and televisions, all of which tell the story of the interaction between humans and objects. The exhibit is located on two ... More

Records broken at landmark Cheffins Art & Design Sale
CAMBRIDGE.- A number of auction records were broken at the Cheffins Art & Design Sale on 25th February which saw works by some of the biggest names in 20th century art and sculpture go under the hammer in Cambridge. Martin Millard, Director, Cheffins says: “Despite a complete lack of public viewing or attendance, appetite for fresh-to-market, quality entries proved insatiable, with a series of auction records set during the course of this incredibly buoyant sale. A captive audience of bidders, unable to spend their money on other things, resulted in record numbers of registrations and a sale rate of 95% by lot, with 54% of buyers being entirely new clients. With a marked increase in the number of bidders now at every sale, we are seeing that private buyers are increasingly turning to regional auction houses in order to find ways to furnish their homes ...

His books inspired lovestruck teens to put locks on bridges
MILAN (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Those love locks affixed to the Pont des Arts in Paris, the Ponte Milvio in Rome and the Brooklyn Bridge in New York? Federico Moccia takes full responsibility. While there are other theories as to what first inspired the now-derided practice, his 2006 novel, “Ho Voglia di Te” (“I Want You” in English), is widely credited for starting it. In the book, two lovestruck characters secure a padlock to a streetlamp on Ponte Milvio and throw the key in the Tiber River, citing a “legend” that couples who do so “will never break up.” The idea came from a rite of passage Moccia, 57, saw when he was in the army. “We had these locks for our bags, and when their service was over, people would attach them to the barracks fence,” he said in a video interview in January. “I thought it would be nice to turn a military thing into its opposite ...

Famed Italian house music DJ Claudio Coccoluto dies at 59
ROME (AFP).- Claudio Coccoluto, a renowned Italian house music DJ who packed out clubs across Europe in the 1990s, died on Tuesday aged 59, his former employer, Radio Deejay, said. He died "after having fought for a year against a serious illness," Radio Deejay wrote on its website. Coccoluto died in his home in Cassino, a town some 130 kilometres (80 miles) south-east of Rome, the broadcaster added. Fellow DJ Gilles Peterson paid tribute on Twitter to a man he described as "an icon of Italian DJ culture... a true gentleman... always curious, always excited to exchange music and always a thrill watching him in action". Italian Culture Minister Dario Franceschini hailed "a protagonist of the Italian and international creative scene... who got entire generations of boys and girls dancing with his tunes and avantgarde music."

Heritage Auctions' sports category hammers home a $42 million February
DALLAS, TX.- From the 1909 Honus Wagner card that fetched more than $2.5 million to the first Reggie Jackson cardboard to break the million-dollar mark to the Zion Williamson NBA Top Shot that became the first digital moment to sell at auction, the past, present and future of sports collecting collided during the final weekend of February to drive Heritage Auction's latest Platinum Night Sports Auction past the $32.7-million mark. That's a record-shattering mark for the world's leading sports auction house, which only two months ago set the all-time sports auction record with a $22-million event. The weekend's $32.7-million figure also includes more than $1 million in post-auction sales, which are likely to continue in coming days.

Reggae great Bunny Wailer dead at 73
KINGSTON (AFP).- Reggae icon Bunny Wailer, who co-founded The Wailers with Bob Marley in the 1960s and helped make the catchy Jamaican beat a global phenomenon, died on Tuesday. He was 73. No cause of death was given but the Jamaican culture ministry said Wailer had been hospitalized in Kingston since December. Wailer, who was born Neville Livingstone in the Nine Mile district, where Marley also came from, suffered a stroke in 2018 and another in July of last year. He was the last surviving original member of the Wailers. Marley died of cancer in 1981, and Peter Tosh was murdered in 1987. Wailer, who was a childhood friend of Marley, won three Grammys over the course of his career and in 2017 he was awarded Jamaica's Order of Merit, one of the country's highest honors. "We remain grateful for the role that Bunny Wailer ... More

One of Turkey's hottest rock bands has an unlikely source
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Late one night in 2016, Jasper Verhulst was sitting on his balcony in Amsterdam, pondering his next career move. The Dutch bass player had been playing in an indie band, he recalled in a recent video interview, but its singer had decided to stop touring, and Verhulst needed a new project. That night, he put on a playlist of his favorite Turkish rock songs — tracks written in the 1970s that combined traditional Turkish melodies and instruments with psychedelic rock, to make a funky sound all their own. Suddenly, he was struck by thought: “This is what I want to do.” Turkish rock songs like these would sound great at a music festival, he thought, yet he’d never heard that before. So he decided to fill the gap. He just had a few problems to overcome first: He didn’t speak Turkish, and he didn’t play any Turkish instruments. ... More
