Her 'Chagall' is headed for the trash. How's that for caveat emptor?

Stephanie Clegg, an art collector who purchased a purported Marc Chagall painting at Sotheby’s in 1994 that has now been declared a fake, in Beach Haven, N.J., July 1, 2022. An expert panel in France now wants to destroy it as a fake. “I trusted them through all those years,” Clegg said of Sotheby’s. “They were supposed to be reputable experts and I relied on their expertise.” Aaron Richter/The New York Times.

NEW YORK, NY.- The question of whether a valuable artwork is genuine can be surprisingly fluid, changing over time based on evolving and sometime competing evaluations. In 1973, for example, the Metropolitan Museum of Art reattributed roughly 300 paintings in its collection, including works long thought to have been created by masters such as Rembrandt, Goya, Vermeer and Velázquez. “I believe that attributions are like medicine or any field in which knowledge is constantly changing or advancing,” offered Everett Fahy, the Met’s curator of European paintings at that time. Some 37 years later, the museum decided it had actually been right the first time around, and flipped back the attribution for one of those works, a portrait of Phillip IV by Velázquez. But this sort of history is of little solace to Stephanie Clegg, who paid $90,000 for a painting attributed to Marc Chagall at auction at Sotheby’s in 1994, just nine years after the artist’s death. ...

LONDON.- Room 34 of the National Gallery in London was jammed on Monday afternoon with tourists studying the masterpieces of British art on its walls, including J.M.W. Turner’s “The Fighting Temeraire,” which depicts a warship being towed to a breaker’s yard, and George Stubbs’ “Whistlejacket,” a huge painting of a horse rearing skyward. Then, suddenly, two visitors broke the reverential mood. At 2:15 p.m., Eben Lazarus, 22, a music student, pulled three posters from a tube. Then, with the help of Hannah Hunt, 23, a psychology student, he stuck them over John Constable’s “The Hay Wain,” a famed 19th-century painting, transforming its bucolic landscape into one with airplanes, fire-ravaged trees and a rusty car. The couple then removed their jackets to reveal T-shirts bearing the slogan “Just Stop Oil,” glued themselves to the painting’s frame and shouted about the need ... More

Four international artists with similar yet different and unique backgrounds, united by their ability to write their own codes that give rise to generative artworks with strongly characterizing features.

MILAN.- With the 20th century and the advent of the historical avant-gardes, the artist's role underwent considerable analysis and was revised for the aesthetic result. Even as figurative art was abandoned, the artist took on a different and new role compared to tradition. With the progress and development of technology, accompanied by the related and consequential increasing involvement of the viewer, the focus was no longer exclusively on the artistic result but more on the overall creation process. Proof of this new trend lies in the emergence of art movements focused on the active role of the viewer, including kinetic art, where the viewer individually determines the result, and generative art, where the artwork is the product of an autonomous system capable of determining the characteristics of the work. As anticipated, especially since the last century, ... More

The physical effort that my paintings demand of me sometimes makes me paint on the floor or sometimes paint upside down. All in order to finish the work and show the public new works, painted between 2021 and 2022.

MONTERREY.- Located in ‘Barrio Antiguo’, which is the heart of the artistic district in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, and just a few blocks from the Museo de Arte Contemporario and Museo del Noreste, the art gallery Armario 916 possesses within itself an exquisite personalization of it’s own architecture and interior with its unique blend of Mexico’s old ‘barrio’ and new industrial architecture styles under just one roof. The artwork within the current exhibition,"The Rise of the Observed", hanging on their walls reflects artist dan guz man's very personal view of his paintings. Considered to be of international renowned ever since guz man (manguzdan) was recognized by the Chinese 2019 Modern Art World Exhibition, he now represents Mexico’s talent as a Modern artist.

by Elizabeth A. Harris and Alexandra Alter

NEW YORK, NY.- Martha Hickson, a high school librarian in Annandale, New Jersey, heard last fall that some parents were going to call for her library to ban certain books. So at 7 p.m., when she and her husband would usually watch “Jeopardy!” she got comfortable in her recliner and turned on a livestream of the local school board meeting. A parent stood up and denounced two books, “Lawn Boy” and “Gender Queer,” calling them pornographic. Both books, award winners with LGBTQ characters and frank depictions of sex, have been challenged around the country and were available at the North Hunterdon High School library. Then the woman called out Hickson, who is the librarian there, by name, for allowing her 16-year-old son to check out the books. “This amounts to an effort ... More

Fridman Gallery and Voloshyn Gallery present 'Women at War'   Academy Museum appoints Jacqueline Stewart as Director and President   Newly discovered Stubbs dog portrait sells at Bonhams Old Master Paintings sale

Zhanna Kadyrova, Palianytsia, 2022, mixed media installation ©Zhanna Kadyrova. Courtesy of the artist and Galeria Continua.

NEW YORK, NY.- Fridman Gallery and Voloshyn Gallery (Kyiv, Ukraine) are presenting Women at War, curated by Monika Fabijanska. Women at War features works by a selection of the leading contemporary women artists working in Ukraine, and provides a context for the current war, as represented in art across media. Several works in the exhibition were made after February 24, 2022, when Russia began full-scale invasion; others date from the eight years of war following the annexation of Crimea and the creation of separatist “republics” in Donbas in 2014. War is central to history. History has been written (and painted) by men. This exhibition provides a platform for female narrators of history and examines the perception of war as gendered. Women are generally absent from the historical accounts of war, but violating a woman is seen as a violation of land and nation. Media images reinforce the perception of gender divide. But is war ind ... More

LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Board of Trustees of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures today announced the appointment of Jacqueline Stewart as the institution’s Director and President.

Detail of A Black and White Spaniel Pointing by George Stubbs. Sold for £252,300. Photo: Bonhams.

LONDON.- A Black and White Spaniel Pointing by George Stubbs that had been considered lost sold for £252,300 at Bonhams Old Master Paintings sale in London on 6 July. It had been estimated at £200,000-300,000. The 71-lot sale made a total of £1,589,000. Lisa Greaves, Bonhams Head of Old Master Paintings, said: “Although Stubbs made his name as a painter of horses for the grandees of racing and horse breeding, he developed an equally lucrative career as a painter of dogs – often as commissions from the aristocratic owners of the horses. This was a wonderful example of his dog painting and a great rediscovery.” Other highlights of the sale included: Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden by the Master of the Embroidered Foliage (active in Brussels and Bruges 1480-1510). The unusual name of the artist was coined in the 1920s. Subsequent research has shown that the Master's works were created by a variety of artists from different wo ... More

Online exhibition at Janet Rady Fine Art considers the beauty of nature   Philbrook hosts major Frida Kahlo exhibition   Design Exhibition Scotland reveals new park bench designs at Mount Stuart

Adam Lowenbein, Pool, 2021 Acrylic on canvas, 152.4 x 121.9cm Janet Rady Fine Art.

LONDON.- Janet Rady Fine Art is presenting “Bubble In The Grass”, an online group show of international artists running from 6th July to August 3rd 2022. Inspired by a line in Laurie Lee’s poem “Apples”, this online show considers the beauty of nature, and the joy and optimism of life through still-life and landscape paintings by Shadi Abousada, Daniel Freaker, William Lim and Adam Lowenbein. Daniel Freaker’s work explores the painterly qualities of print, video, film and photography through the medium of painting. The filmic reminiscence of film-scenes suggest fragments of a broader narrative which the viewer can interpret. Sitting between abstraction and figuration, Freaker’s paintings play as much emphasis on the materiality of paint as they do the form of the image itself. Where some aspects of the painting are defined and detailed, others are more suggestive and evocative. ... More

Park benches are used to explore alternative lifestyles focused on wellbeing and community values as the design structures ground ... More

A conductor's career, cut short, still blazes on recordings
NEW YORK, NY.- Frost glazed the ground, and mist hung in the air, as a brand-new Douglas DC-6B took off from Orly Airport near Paris early on Nov. 24, 1956. The plane was headed for Shannon, Ireland, and then New York. It would arrive at neither. About 15 seconds after it left the ground, the plane dipped slightly below its path, clipped an unlit house, and plunged into the village of Paray-Vieille-Poste. The authorities never found the cause of the crash; all but one of the 35 people aboard died. Among them was Guido Cantelli, 36, a “comet of a conductor,” as one critic called him, and the protégé of Arturo Toscanini. In just eight years, Cantelli had shot from obscurity to a career whose brightness still blinds today. Frequently a guest of the New York Philharmonic, which he was on his way to conduct, he had been announced as the music director ... More

British - Iranian artist Hana Shahnavaz creates new work for long-awaited Jeff Bridges spy drama, FX's The Old Man
LONDON.- Hana Shahnavaz is known for her highly stylised, vibrant paintings which depict the stories and legends of her Iranian heritage. This work - inspired by Persian miniatures and their accompanying literature - is made using pigments from rare, natural materials that are hand ground in her studio. Her chosen techniques are testament to a blending of traditional and contemporary arts, gold leaf and diamond dust make light emanate from the hand-made parchment that is her canvas. The Old Man’s producers, Jon Steinberg and Dan Shotz, along with director Jon Watts, approached FX’s Design team to develop the series’ opening titles. Deep into explorations, the group began to rally around a unique concept which ... More

70 years on: Helsinki revitalises its 1952 Olympic sites, leading the way in circular architecture
HELSINKI.- 2022 marks 70 years since the Helsinki 1952 Olympic Games, and the 10th anniversary of Helsinki as the World Design Capital in 2012. Throughout, the city has prioritised the reuse and revitalisation of its original Olympic architectural landmarks, offering improved cultural spaces that contribute to the evolving character and shape of the city, whilst respectfully preserving the national value of each site. Although the smallest city to have hosted the summer Olympics, Helsinki’s functionalist structures were conceived as versatile recreational venues and have been preserved to become modestly emblematic of successful circular design 70 years later. With functional design and sustainably-driven innovation as core priorities for Helsinki’s future, the city and the partners undertaking renovation work to the heritage sites have echoed ... More

Azikiwe Mohammed's 'Forever is Twice as Long from the Ground' opens at Anna Zorina Gallery
NEW YORK, NY.- Anna Zorina Gallery is presenting Forever Is Twice As Long From The Ground, the Gallery’s second solo exhibition with Azikiwe Mohammed. Mohammed's practice centers on creating an alternative space for people of color. His paintings, objects, videos and installations act as celebrations of Black continuance. He shares rich and vibrant offerings of comfort food and othered moments of leisure that touch on a nerve that is joyful, nostalgic and intimate. How far away is a future that has already come, that we are currently living inside of. Has it always been the future or is it now a horizon that we look back upon and act inside of. The promise of the flying car to take us to places lacking that which concerns us here was a lie, a distraction from the ground that we have neglected. There were never any Black people in The Jetsons. We ... More

Heritage holds a blockbuster auction featuring props, scripts and costumes from producer Joel Silver's Collection
DALLAS, TX.- You know his movies, among them the billion-dollar franchises and big-screen blockbusters that will play on small screens until the electricity runs out. For starters: all four Lethal Weapons, the first two Die Hards, the first three entries in The Matrix series, the Sherlock Holmes movies, 48 Hrs., the first two Predators, Road House, Demolition Man, Commando, V for Vendetta, Weird Science, the Tales from the Crypt TV series. It goes on. And on. You know his name, too, the rare producer whose name would appear above the title: Joel Silver, who likes to say that in 1975 he “went from college to Hollywood.” Silver has more than 125 productions to his credit, dating back to 1979’s The Warriors.

El Ultimo Grito creates an exhibition proposal for Bombas Gens Centre d'Art
VALENCIA.- Within the framework of World Design Capital Valencia 2022, Bombas Gens Centre d’Art – under the artistic direction of Sandra Guimarães— has invited El Ultimo Grito to create an exhibition proposal based on the Per Amor a l’Art Collection. In this exhibition, design operates as a conceptual and material narrative and curatorial device, sketching a sort of language of the interlude, engaging in a dialogue that opens a speculative approach into the nature of this collection and its individual works. For El Ultimo Grito, design is an inbetweener. Design is an action, a verb, and not a noun or object. Although these are commonly mistaken as design, they are just by-products of these processes. Design lives in those in-between spaces that exist between humans and their surrounding worlds, both real or fictional, conceptually ... More
