NEW YORK, NY.- Andrea Bowers is a workaholic who, during the depths of the pandemic, was happy to bunker in her studio here and spend hundreds of hours making a single photorealistic drawing of, say, a protester for fair wages or climate justice. But Bowers, 56, whose art and politics are fully merged, is never more fulfilled than on the front lines. And so she also ventured out: joining the protests after the murder of George Floyd. Driving up the coast to embed with queer tree-sitters half her age defending redwood groves from clear-cutting in Mendocino County. To San Francisco, where she is creating an installation for the new Harvey Milk airport terminal, with disco balls and quotes in neon from the civic leader murdered in 1978. “I’m literally making work about activism and activists,” she told me during a recent visit to her studio in the Highland Park neighborhood. ...

by Robin Pogrebin

NEW YORK, NY.- Seven years after announcing ambitious plans to rebuild its wing for Modern and contemporary art — which then had to be put on hold because of financial problems — the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced Tuesday that it had finally secured a lead donation of $125 million, the largest capital gift in its history, from its longtime trustee Oscar L. Tang and his wife, Agnes Hsu‐Tang, an archaeologist and art historian. The wing will be named after them for a minimum of 50 years. “It is coming from within the Met,” said the museum’s director, Max Hollein, in a telephone interview. “It shows the confidence the museum has in this very important project.” With their donation, the Tangs join a rarefied group of philanthropists who ...

American Friends of The National Gallery of Denmark raise more than $30.000 for the conservation of Matisse painting   PINTA Miami to be held at new venue during Miami art week   Letter from Catherine the Great shows her support for inoculations

Henri Matisse, Nymph and Faun, c. 1911, Oil on canvas, 73 x 59 cm, SMK - National Gallery of Denmark © 2021 Succession H. Matisse / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York.

NEW YORK, NY.- American Friends of The National Gallery of Denmark initiated a fundraising campaign in October to raise the $30,000.- needed for the conservation of the Matisse painting Nymph and Faun, which was acquired by The National Gallery of Denmark (SMK) in 2018. The painting is to be part of an exhibition at MoMA in New York from May 2022 but is too fragile to travel in its current state. The fundraising campaign expired last week and the goal was more than reached, so that the conservation process can now begin. Fundraising is a new funding tool for SMK’s American foundation and friendship organization which has shown to be extremely beneficial. Besides raising the money needed, the campaign has worked as a different way for art lovers to engage in fine art. By donating to the campaign, the backers receive exclusive rewards related to the painting, such as following the conservation process ... More

A portrait of Catherine the Great by Dmitry Levitsky that will be auctioned in London on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2021, alongside the letter in which she extols the virtues of variolation, an early inoculation process. MacDougall Auctions via The New York Times.

by Amanda Holpuch

NEW YORK, NY.- As smallpox outbreaks ravaged communities in the 18th century, one of the first people in Russia to embrace a precursor to vaccines was Catherine the Great, the empress famed for promoting the latest knowledge in the arts and sciences from her throne. Catherine’s support for an early form of inoculation is captured in a letter to be sold at auction in London on Wednesday. In it, she instructs a governor-general to ensure that a smallpox prevention method called variolation was readily available in his province. According to a translation of the letter provided by the auction house, Catherine, like many world leaders today, sought widespread protection against an infectious disease that was devastating her empire. “Such inoculation should be common everywhere, ...

LONDON.- Stephen Friedman Gallery announced representation of Japanese artist Izumi Kato. Kato lives and works between Tokyo and Hong Kong. He was born in 1969 in the Shimane prefecture of Japan, a sparsely populated province bordered by mountain and sea which houses Izumo Ōyashiro, one of the oldest and most significant shrines in Shintoism. Describing painting as the root of his practice, with bold clashing colours the artist depicts children with unusual faces, embryos with fully developed limbs and figures with bulbous heads attached to slim, graceful bodies. Working intuitively, Kato applies pigment to surfaces directly with his hands. This ardent exploration led the artist also to paint textiles, wood and stone. Gathering material from his surroundings, Kato combines painting with stitching, knotting and carving – skills that as an avid fisherman ... More

Phillips and Poly Auction 20th Century & Contemporary Art & Design Hong Kong sales realise US$86 million   Empire State Building lights up to honor Josephine Baker   Niclas Riepshoff's second solo exhibition with 14a opens in Hamburg

Phillips auctioneer Jonathan Crockett selling lot 16, Gerhard Richter’s Kerzenschein (Candle-light), which sold for HK$101 million/ US$13 million.

NEW YORK, NY.- New York's Empire State Building lit up in the French national colors on Monday evening to honor Josephine Baker, on the eve of the US-born singer, dancer and rights activist's entrance to the Pantheon in Paris. Baker will become the first Black woman to be honored in the mausoleum, the final resting place of leading figures in the history of France. "Tonight... we glow blue, white, and red in celebration of entertainer and civil rights icon Josephine Baker," the 102-story art deco skyscraper's Twitter account posted. As night fell, the building's tricolor top and spire gleamed among Manhattan's city lights, whilst on the 86th floor viewing deck, an event to celebrate Baker took place. French basketball player Evan Fournier, who plays for the New York Knicks, paid tribute to the ... More

HAMBURG.- A caring hand is not always gentle. It is the founding principle of psychoanalysis (and more recently, affect theory) that tenderness is inextricably linked to, or better, irreparably merged with feelings considered to be its polar opposite. Such inherent ambiguity of care can result in violently possessive episodes (“I care for you, therefore you belong to me”) that tarnish every attempt at its romanticization; yet without care, no ethics is possible. Niclas Riepshoff’s A Stitch in Time (2021) is an unfaithful replica of a relatively obscure, but also perversely humorous subgenre of kitsch home-decor miniatures that one might purchase on eBay by awkwardly searching for “Grandma Sewing Repairing Upside Down Boy's Pants.” The sculpture is covered with patches of fabric that Riepshoff and his friends have collectively labored over, as in some sort of a para-sewing club. The acts of maintenance, repair, attention—terms that one could liberally ... More

Adolfo, Designer Who Dressed Nancy Reagan, Dies at 98
NEW YORK, NY.- Adolfo, who achieved international fashion fame as one of Nancy Reagan’s favorite designers during her years as first lady and who dressed many of society’s most prominent women for almost three decades, died Saturday at his home in the New York City borough of Manhattan. He was 98. The death was confirmed by Joann Palumbo, his lawyer. She also confirmed his age, although numerous sources give his birth year as 1933, which would have made him 88. The designer’s surname was Sardiña, but he never used it professionally and was always known simply as Adolfo. Although he was a major presence on the fashion scene, he is best remembered as the designer of the trademark red suits worn by Reagan. They first met in 1967, and she wore his clothes in Sacramento, California, when Ronald Reagan was governor of the state. For ... More

David Gulpilil, famed Aboriginal actor, dies at 68
NEW YORK, NY.- David Gulpilil, an Indigenous Australian who found film stardom as a teenager in 1971 when he was featured in “Walkabout” and went on to become Australia’s most famous Aboriginal actor, appearing in dramas like “Charlie’s Country,” for which he won a best-actor award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, and comedies like the 1986 hit “Crocodile Dundee,” died Monday in Murray Bridge, in South Australia. He was 68. Steven Marshall, South Australia’s top official, announced his death. In 2017 Gulpilil learned that he had terminal lung cancer, something he addressed in a documentary released this year called “My Name Is Gulpilil.” Marshall, in a statement, called Gulpilil “an iconic, once-in-a-generation artist who shaped the history of Australian film and Aboriginal representation onscreen.” Others had heaped similar praise ...

Under the Radar festival returns, smaller but still funky
NEW YORK, NY.- The Under the Radar festival, the Public Theater’s annual showcase for experimental theater, will return in person next year, Jan. 12-30. The event, now in its 18th year, will feature nearly two dozen artists, with performances held at the Public and Mabou Mines in Manhattan as well as a venue in upstate New York. Those who have attended in past years will notice a few differences: The festival will run for three weeks instead of two and include only 15 productions at the Public — all 90 minutes or less — down from the 22 at the 2020 festival. “I’m happy we have a smaller festival this year so we can really concentrate on these pieces and give them the attention they deserve,” Mark Russell, the festival director, said in a phone conversation, adding that he hadn’t yet determined whether the change would be permanent. One of the pieces ... More

I haven’t lived in Miami for over 30 years and the fact that my time in Miami is still being remembered and honored makes me overjoyed, particularly at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU which has been a big part of my life—it touches my roots. It’s who I am,” Kreloff said. ... More

Robert Battle on running Ailey: 'This is my choreography now'
NEW YORK, NY.- Robert Battle, artistic director of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, sitting in his office at the company’s headquarters recently, pointed to a photo on the wall. It was a composite image, made 10 years ago, of three faces. At left was Alvin Ailey, who formed his namesake troupe in 1958 and built it into an institution of enormous cultural pride and unparalleled popularity. In the center was Judith Jamison, the company star who succeeded Ailey at the helm after his death in 1989 and led the organization into financial stability. And on the right was Battle, who was never a member of the company but had just taken over as its director. “Wow, OK, a little pressure,” Battle said, understating how he felt back then. “I wanted the job but I had doubts,” he continued. “I had this fear that the audience wouldn’t show up, that people ...

The next Blickachsen exhibition will take place in 2023
BAD HOMBURG.- Unfortunately, owing to COVID-19 restrictions the thirteenth Blickachsen Sculpture Biennale scheduled for 2021 had to be cancelled. The intention was to delay the exhibition for a year. However, given the continuing uncertainty surrounding the development of the pandemic and the resulting lack of planning security over the coming months, the Board of the Blickachsen Foundation has unanimously decided to postpone the upcoming Blickachsen exhibition until the next scheduled date in 2023. Every two years from 1997 until 2019, the Blickachsen Biennale regularly invited visitors from home and abroad to experience art in a dialogue with nature: freely accessible for all in the public space. Hundreds of thousands of visitors attended the twelfth Blickachsen in 2019 and were able to explore the 60 sculptures and installations ... More

New publication in Frick's popular Diptych series focuses on Fragonard's Progress of Love
NEW YORK, NY.- The Frick’s Diptych series continues this winter with a volume on Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s Progress of Love, a remarkable ensemble of paintings that is a jewel in the crown of the museum’s collection. Each of the seven books in this popular series brings a fresh perspective to a Frick artwork by pairing an art-historical essay with a text by a contemporary cultural figure. In this instance, Xavier F. Salomon, Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator, illuminates the intriguing story of how these exuberant eighteenth-century paintings were created. As a complement, the award-winning novelist, poet, and, short-story writer Alan Hollinghurst offers a lyrical essay centered on the lush and evocative backdrops that dominate each major picture. Comments Salomon, “The timing couldn’t be better for a renewed discussion of the Fragonard ... More

On a day like today, Italian architect Andrea Palladio was born
November 30, 1508. Andrea Palladio (30 November 1508 - 19 August 1580) was an architect active in the Republic of Venice. Palladio, influenced by Roman and Greek architecture, primarily by Vitruvius, is widely considered the most influential individual in the history of Western architecture. All of his buildings are located in what was the Venetian Republic, but his teachings, summarized in the architectural treatise I Quattro Libri dell'Architettura (The Four Books of Architecture), gained him wide recognition. The city of Vicenza and the Palladian Villas of the Veneto are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In this image: A Royal Academy of Arts staff looks over a model of the Villa Emo at the Royal Academy in London, Britain, 27 January, 2009. The Royal Academy of Arts showed the first exhibition devoted to one of Italy's greatest architects, Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) to be held in London. The exhibit follows Palladio's career, from the earlier palazzi in Vicenza, the Basilica and his innovative solutions to rural buildings.
