NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- This has been a good year to try new things indoors. Especially for Bruce Nauman. The controlled terrain of this artist’s studio has always been more than a work space; it’s an arena in which everything, from his body to his words to just the fact of his breathing, can gain the status of art. As early as 1967, first on 16 mm film and then with one of the first consumer video cameras, Nauman documented himself bouncing balls up and down, or stamping his feet on the floor, or walking and playing the same notes repeatedly on the violin. Alone inside he zeroed in on himself with a precision, a menace and a dark humor that would characterize his whole career, and averred that the studio walls were all he needed to approach the biggest questions of creation and mortality. Nauman is now 78. He would have every right to take it easy at his home in New Mexico or just tend his horses after a lifetime of innovation that was summed up in a mighty retrospective two years ago at the Museum ...

Museums are back, but different: A visitor's guide   Dutch museum unveils unseen pics by master lensman   These winged dinosaurs hurtled through the trees like haywire hang gliders

Visitors enter the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Oct. 14, 2020. Many museums have reopened or are in the process of doing so, and it’s clear that things will look a little different to visitors. Amr Alfiky/The New York Times.

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- It has been a singular year for art museums. In most parts of the country, they were closed for several months beginning in March; some are still shuttered. Rarely in living memory has so much art been out of view for so long. But signs of resilience are everywhere. Many museums have reopened or are in the process of doing so, and it’s clear that things will look a little different to visitors. On the most visible level of pandemic precautions, some combination of mask mandates, temperature checks, reduced capacity and timed entry is now standard and will be at least until there’s a coronavirus vaccine. Some of the changes have even been fun: For a few weeks, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York had a bike valet for visitors who wanted to cycle over instead of taking the subway. But it’s also the art on ... More

AMSTERDAM (AFP).- Amsterdam's famous Rijksmuseum unveiled a set of long-lost pictures Friday taken around the 1950s by Dutch master lensman Ed van der Elsken, considered one of the most influential photographers of the last century. Famous for his raw street-style photography of daily life in Amsterdam, the newly found picture book contains some 134 never-before-seen images ranging from ordinary people to famous poets and royals. The unfinished work was discovered after Van der Elsken's widow Anneke Hilhorst transferred his estate to the Rijksmuseum and the Rotterdam-based Nederlands Photo Museum last year. Van der Elsken died in 1990, aged 65. "For the curators, this marked the beginning of their research into the Van der Elsken working archive, comprising 11,000 objects," the Rijksmuseum said in a statement. "One of many surprises was the mock-up design of a photo book that Van der Elsk ... More

by Sabrina Imbler

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- During a blip in time in the late Jurassic, a dinosaur that weighed no more than a chinchilla flung itself from tree to tree, spread its wings and tried to soar. In theory, it sounds beautiful — an early attempt at flight before birds figured out the blueprint. In practice, it was chaotic. The dinosaur, Yi qi, only barely managed to glide, stretching out and shimmying its skin-flap, downy-feathered wings in a valiant attempt at flying. “It was rocketing from tree to tree, desperately trying not to slam into something,” said Alex Dececchi, a paleontologist at Mount Marty University in South Dakota. “It wouldn’t be something pleasant.” Unsurprisingly, Yi qi is not an ancestor of modern birds. It went extinct after just a few million years, presumably doomed by its sheer lack of competency in the air. In a study published Thursday in the ... More

ST IVES.- This autumn Tate St Ives is staging Strange Attractors, the UK’s largest exhibition to date by celebrated South Korean artist Haegue Yang. Yang is renowned for creating immersive environments from a diverse range of materials. Her sculptures and installations often use industrially made objects, interwoven with labour-intensive and craft-based processes. These processes reflect pagan cultures and their deep connection with various seasonal rituals in relation to natural phenomena. The exhibition’s title – Strange Attractors – is a concept taken from mathematics and relates to complex patterns of behaviour in chaotic natural systems. Taking this theory as a starting point, Yang’s exhibition creates an environment in which ... More

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Months before the 2016 presidential election, Sue Coe used her printmaking tools to create “It Can Happen Here,” a linocut caricature of Donald Trump as a howling tornado tearing the U.S. Constitution in two. “I watched Brexit,” said the 69-year-old artist, who was born in Britain and who has been based in New York for almost 50 years. “I knew he was going to get elected.” Coe has been prescient about a lot of things in her searing social-political art. Her work can feel like a punch in the face or a call to action — or both. “Sue Coe: It Can Happen Here,” a four-decade retrospective on view at Galerie St. Etienne in New York through Dec. 30, chronicles this country from the Reagan era to the time of Trump, all through the artist’s Marxist worldview. The show includes ... More

PARIS (AFP).- The Eiffel Tower is experiencing a collapse in visitor numbers as foreign tourists stay away and tight coronavirus measures, including a curfew, take their toll, the Paris landmark's operator said Friday. Ticket sales have fallen by 80 percent compared to 2019, according to the operator, SETE, and revenue by 70 percent. "We have 2,500 visitors per day for a monument than can accomodate up to 25,000," SETE president Jean-Francois Martins told RTL radio. "Since the end of the summer, we're down to between 10 and 20 percent of our usual attendance," he said. Social distancing rules allow lifts going up the tower to carry only half the usual number of people. The Eiffel Tower has also cancelled its night opening hours as curfew rules in Paris are banning people from being out after 9:00 pm. But the almost complete absence of foreign tourists, who usually acco ... More

Jordan Nassar, In The Heart Of The Rose, 2020. Hand-embroidered cotton on cotton, 38 1/2 x 30 in. 97.8 x 76.2 cm. Framed 39 x 30 1/2 in.

NEW YORK, NY.- James Cohan is presenting I Cut The Sky In Two, an exhibition of new work by Jordan Nassar, on view from October 23 through November 21 at 291 Grand Street. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with James Cohan. The gallery will host an afternoon limited-capacity opening reception with the artist on Saturday, October 31 from 1-4PM that adheres to state COVID-19 safety guidelines. Jordan Nassar’s hand-embroidered works address intersecting fields of craft, ethnicity and the embedded notions of heritage and homeland. Nassar uses geometric patterns characteristic of Palestinian tatreez—most often found on pillows, clothing, and other domestic textiles. The artist grew up in a home decorated with such objects. As he notes, “Growing up in the diaspora, much of Palestinian culture was experienced materially.” This exhibition expands Nassar’s ongoing exploration of object, memory, and ... More

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- When Eleanor Jordan first visited the Kentucky Capitol as an 11-year-old, she didn’t see herself, a Black girl, represented in the grand halls. “I saw only paintings, statues, busts of white men,” said the former state legislator. “That sent a profound message to me as a little girl that ‘You have no place here. No one of your gender or race has done anything significant enough for people to remember.’” A year from now, the view will be a little different for students touring the Capitol, once a statue of Nettie Depp, a teacher and administrator who was elected as a county school superintendent seven years before women got the vote, is unveiled in August. ...

Montpellier Contemporain exhibits a selection of important works from the Cranford Collection   Reduct and Stuart Duffin exhibitions open this weekend at the Royal Scottish Academy   Kettle's Yard opens an exhibition of paintings and drawings by self-taught British artist and mariner Alfred Wallis

MONTPELLIER .- MO.CO. presents, for the first time in France, a selection of important works from the Cranford Collection. Established by Muriel and Freddy Salem in 1999, it is one of the most important private art collections in Europe, comprising over 700 works from the 1960s to the present. The exhibition 00s. Cranford Collection: The 2000s brings together over 80 works by 44 international artists, and focuses on this still largely unexplored decade, which remains to be fully defined. The exhibited paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and videos are presented chronologically and are complemented by an historical timeline charting the key events of this period. The beginning of this new millennium, brought its own share of radical changes and heralded the dawn of an era of hyper-globalisation oversaturated by communication: the 9/11 attacks, the notion of a “clash of civilisations” (Afghanistan, Iraq), the first majo ...

EDINBURGH.- This autumn the Royal Scottish Academy will present Reduct: Abstraction and Geometry in Scottish Art. With works by 30 artists on view, the exhibition will examine the ways in which non-objective expression remains a compelling approach one hundred years after it was first taken up by the avant-garde, focusing specifically on the interest in geometry in the recent history of Scottish art. The title of the exhibition, Reduct, relates to the centrality of reduction and distillation to abstraction. Framed in a historical context of internationally significant Scottish artists including Alan Davie HRSA, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham RSA and Sir Eduardo Paolozzi HRSA, the exhibition will highlight the pursuit of non-objective form, through the prism of geometry, to be an important movement in Scottish painting, printmaking and sculpture. Works by important contemporary artists including Toby Paterson, Arthur ... More

‘Discovered’ in 1928 by artists Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood, Wallis occupies a pre-eminent position in the history of British art as an untrained artist.

CAMBRIDGE.- Kettle’s Yard announces ‘Alfred Wallis Rediscovered’, an exhibition of paintings and drawings by self-taught British artist and mariner Alfred Wallis (1855–1942). The exhibition will include over 60 rarely shown paintings and drawings from the Kettle’s Yard Reserve Collection and three important sketchbooks which were made in the last year of the artist’s life and have not been exhibited for over 50 years. The exhibition celebrates Wallis’ practice as an artist from around 1925, when he is thought to have started painting, to his death in the Madron Institute in 1942. Despite the challenge of few of the works being dated, Wallis’ letters, the sketchbooks, and the evidence of the paintings themselves, suggest an artist increasingly reflecting on his own artistic development. As well as the gallery exhibition, visitors will also be ... More

Nick Smith reimagines The Simpsons and works of Keith Haring and Jean Michel Basquiat
LONDON.- Rhodes Contemporary Art is presenting Pioneers, a solo exhibition by Nick Smith that examines the American canon of art and cultural heritage through a personal lens of word-colour associations. The exhibition features a new series of works Nick Smith created during lockdown, from his small village of Crinan. Thematically, the exhibition explores and remasters canonised North American art and culture, from Grant Wood, Edward Hopper and Chuck Close to The Simpsons. It is a celebration of iconic American art and design, and how a simple bottle of Coca-Cola has intertwined with art, design history and culture. In this series, Smith incorporates his method of word-colour associations he has coined “psycolourgy”, combining text and image to create intriguing and provocative collaged works. On the surface, we see colour-chips that ... More

Dubai breaks world record for largest fountain
DUBAI (AFP).- The glitzy emirate of Dubai broke the record for the world's largest fountain on Thursday, as the Gulf city seeks to boost its hard-hit tourism sector amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Palm Fountain, which covers an area of 14,366 square feet (1,335 square metres), is located at The Pointe shopping and dining district on Palm Jumeirah, a man-made palm-shaped island. Mask-clad people, in keeping with coronavirus safety measures, gathered on Thursday evening to watch a show of dancing jets of water, musci and lights. "GWR is delighted to officially see The Palm Fountain breaking the title of the Largest fountain," Shaddy Gaad, Senior Marketing Manager at Guinness World Records said in a statement. "This fountain is an example of another milestone in Dubai's architectural achievements," it said, adding that Guinness was declaring ... More

Selfies, acting and Instagram meet in French theatre first
PARIS (AFP).- Alone on stage in a French theatre, Helena de Laurens plays her character Jeanne in front of an audience for close to two hours. But her solo performance comes with a twist: the actress holds a smartphone with which she films herself constantly for a live feed on Instagram, in what has been dubbed the first such double act. The play, "_jeanne_dark_", is currently touring France after a successful run at the Theatre de la Commune in Aubervilliers just north of Paris. There, the live feed was broadcast back onto two screens on either side of the stage, on which theatre-goers could read online viewers' comments. De Laurens, 31, plays Jeanne, a 16-year-old who lives near the central city of Orleans and finds herself ugly, uncool, feels her parents don't respect her privacy and is mortified by constant taunts at school over her ...

Chila Kumari Singh Burman to undertake 2020 Winter Commission for Tate Britain
LONDON.- Chila Kumari Singh Burman will create a stunning new installation for Tate Britain’s annual Winter Commission. To be unveiled in time for Diwali, the Festival of Lights, this is the fourth in a series of outdoor commissions to mark the winter season, following works by Alan Kane in 2017, Monster Chetwynd in 2018 and Anne Hardy in 2019. Burman is celebrated for her interdisciplinary practice which span printmaking, painting, installation and film. Her work draws on her Punjabi heritage and radical feminist perspectives as a means through which to explore the multiplicity of South Asian identities within a British context. Burman’s practice is often inspired by her childhood and her father who owned an ice cream van. For the Winter Commission, she will create a collage of a wide range of source material. With this installation Burman will ... More

Brooklyn Botanic Garden turns over a new leaf
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Only a skeleton staff at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden witnessed the blizzard of cherry blossoms scattered by spring breezes during the pandemic shutdown. Delicate blooms of wisteria tumbled over pergolas and plump roses unfurled with no appreciative fans to say “Oooh.” The garden reopened in August for a limited daily number of socially distanced visitors. Now, as fall’s vibrant, showy display begins, meadow and woodland gardens completed at last winter’s onset are finally coming into their own. They are the culmination of a yearslong evolution, as the garden turns over a new leaf with the selection in September of Adrian Benepe, a former commissioner of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, as the new president and chief executive. Botanical gardens have long represented an ... More

Could dance be a weapon all over again?
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- When the coronavirus pandemic started, the first thing I did was panic. I didn’t want to bum anyone out, but it didn’t take me long to leap to a certain conclusion: With theaters and studios shutting down, the dance world would be devastated. What would come out of the ashes? For a while I thought that the answer had to do with digital dance and how it might develop into something exciting. (That could still happen! It has its moments! People are trying!) But soon I started to obsess about the radical dance movement of the 1930s. Back then, protests and social justice were part of the fabric of modern dance as it met the moment of the Great Depression and the rise of authoritarianism. “The Dance Is a Weapon.” That was the title of the first recital of the New Dance Group, a socially minded collective formed in ...

Marge Champion, dancer, actor and choreographer, dies at 101
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Marge Champion, the lissome dancer and choreographer who with her husband, Gower, epitomized the clean-cut, all-American dance team of Hollywood musicals, Broadway productions and television variety shows of the 1950s, died Wednesday in Los Angeles. She was 101. Her death was confirmed by her son Gregg Champion, who said Thursday that she had been living with him at his home in California for the past six months because of the pandemic. Marge Champion was a child of Hollywood, the daughter of a dance coach who taught her ballet, tap and the twirls, kicks and glorious sweeps of the ballroom. She performed at the Hollywood Bowl as a girl and as a teenager was a model for three Walt Disney animated features, her graceful moves transposed to the heroine of “Snow White and the Seven ...

Heroic Greek masterpiece offered at Bonhams
LONDON.- Scène homérique avec le héros, a masterpiece by the leading Greek painter Nikos Engonopoulos (1907-1985) is among the major works in Bonhams Greek Art sale in London on Wednesday 18 November. It is estimated at £150,000-200,000. The painting dates from Engonopoulos’s much sought after pre-war period – it was executed in 1938 – and offers a dazzling and joyfully colourful array of styles and references. The figures are posed as if on a stage set, echoing the artist’s belief that "under the stage lights, with the most harmonious moves, in a coordinated whole, amidst colours and music, every human dream comes alive." This highly important work was exhibited at the career-defining 1954 Venice Biennale when Engonopoulos became the first Greek artist to represent his country in a solo show. It is the most well documented and ... More

The Incredible Visual Language of Jean-Michel Basquiat



On a day like today, Italian artist Andrea della Robbia was born
October 24, 1435. Andrea della Robbia (October 24, 1435 - August 4, 1525) was an Italian Renaissance sculptor, especially in ceramics. Born in Florence, Robbia was the son of Marco della Robbia, whose brother, Luca della Robbia, popularized the use of glazed terra-cotta for sculpture. Andrea became Luca's pupil, and was the most important artist of ceramic glaze of the times.
