WINTER PARK, FLA.- This exhibition features the work of artists Frances Gallardo and Nathan Budoff, both connected to Puerto Rico by lived experience, and in Gallardo’s case, by birth. The exhibition contains work by the individual artists – which examines both the natural phenomena on the island, as well as its current social, economic and political status – and one collaborative piece made by both artists, mailed back and forth to each other through 2020. Frances Gallardo was born in San Juan in 1984; she received a BFA in Drawing from the University of Puerto Rico and an MFA in Studio Art from Cornell University. She has exhibited in venues in the US and abroad, such as the Perez Art Museum in Miami, the Museum of Latin American Art in Los Angeles, the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña in San Juan, and has participated in numerous residencies including the Latin American Roaming Art in Panama City, Caribbean Linked in Oranjestad, Aruba, the Center for Book Arts in New York and La Prác ...

VIENNA.- His entire life long, he was plagued by poverty, strokes of fate, drug excesses, and severe illness, with his earnings as an artist sufficing only to cover his rent and the barest necessities. But today, works by Amedeo Modigliani—a native of Livorno, Italy who died in his studio in 1920 at just 35 years of age—number among the most expensive, with individual paintings fetching nine-figure sums. In view of his death’s 100th anniversary, Vienna’s Albertina Museum is honoring Amedeo Modigliani (1884–1920) with a spectacular exhibition encompassing ca. 130 works from three continents. This showing, originally planned for the jubilee year of 2020, was postponed due to its importance and the pandemic: So it is only now that this fascinating, powerful artist is being featured for the first time in Austria. The present exhibition brings together major works from the most renowned museums and private ... More

PARIS.- One of Picasso's daughters has given eight of his artworks and a book of drawings to the French state in lieu of inheritance tax at a ceremony on Monday. Six paintings and two statues by the Spanish master were handed over to the state-run Picasso Museum in Paris by his daughter Maya Ruiz-Picasso, his daughter by French model Marie-Therese Walter. They include "The child with the lollipop sitting under a chair", likely featuring Maya as a child, and representing a fearful world on the eve of World War II, according to grandson Olivier Widmaier Picasso. He was at a press conference at the museum alongside Culture Minister Roselyne Bachelot, who called the donation "one of the most important of recent decades". The works were ... More

BASEL.- “Close-up” brings together nine women artists whose work shares a focus on the depiction of the human figure in the form of portraits and self-portraits, and who occupy prominent positions within the history of modern art from 1870 to the present day. The exhibition centres on the artists’ specific perception, on their personal vision of the world that finds expression in the portraits of themselves and others. By juxtaposing these artists, it becomes possible to understand how the artists’ view of their subject shifts between the second half of the 19th century and today, and to appreciate what is reflected in that view and what makes it significant. The exhibition considers a period at the beginning of which it first became possible for women artists in Europe and America to become ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- The Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague; the National Gallery Prague; the National Museum in Prague; and the Moravian Gallery in Brno today announce the acquisition of over 2,000 photographs by Josef Koudelka by way of gift from the artist and his namesake non-profit Foundation. This unprecedented gift by a living artist to four major museums in the Czech Republic encompasses works spanning Koudelka’s career, the essential core of which was presented in his 2018 retrospective exhibition entitled Returning at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague. The donation marks the largest artistic acquisition for the Czech Republic in over 40 years and aligns with the artist’s longstanding mission to keep his work together in public collections and to bring significant artworks back to his homeland. Born in Boskovice, Czechoslovakia in 1938, Koudelka is one of the great representatives of the humanistic and poetic tradition that dominated European photography of the ... More

Jacob Hashimoto, This vanishing, raging solar center, 2021. Bamboo, acrylic, paper, wood, and Dacron. 32 x 25 7/8 x 8 1/4 inches.

CHICAGO, IL.- At its best, art writing adopts the approach of the method actor: the writer enters the psyche of the artist, and in this act of self-deception, strings together words into a text whose structure adopts how the artist thinks. The reader should leave with the phantom of an encounter that emulates the work. It is a practice in forced empathy that hinges upon the transmutation of the writer’s mind into the artist’s hand. In this process of fictionalization, effective writing about art veers away from translation and description and instead inches toward fabrication and fantasy—a falsehood that communicates visuality more truthfully through text. Harold Bloom called this purposeful misunderstanding of a source (for him literature, but here as art), ‘poetic misprision’; a term that defines how a fact-based reading of reality must suffer to reach closer accuracy. For an artist like Jacob Hashimoto (b. Colorado, 1973), in his seventh solo exhibition entitled Misunders ... More

WASHINGTON, DC.- The United States will formally return an illegally imported 3,500-year-old tablet recounting the epic of Gilgamesh to Iraq this week, the United Nations' cultural body UNESCO announced Monday. The ancient tablet, which a wealthy US collector had acquired along with other Iraqi artifacts to display in the Washington Museum of the Bible, will be handed over to Iraqi officials at the Smithsonian Institution on September 23. UNESCO called the repatriation of the tablet, along with 17,000 other artifacts sent back to Iraq in July, "a significant victory in the fight against the illicit trafficking of cultural objects." "The theft and illicit trafficking of ancient artefacts continues to be a key funding source for terrorist groups and other organised criminal organisations," the Paris-based agency said in a statement. It said that ... More

Gagosian announces the representation of Rick Lowe   David Zwirner opens an exhibition of new work by Marcel Dzama   Sexual harassment trial set for Belgian art star Jan Fabre

NEW YORK, NY.- Gagosian announced the representation of Rick Lowe. Lowe’s numerous collaborative projects, undertaken in the spirit and tradition of “social sculpture,” are paired with an extensive body of work in painting, drawing, and installation. Working closely with individuals and communities, he has identified myriad ways to exercise creativity in the context of everyday activities, harnessing it to explore concerns around equity and justice. Influenced by Joseph Beuys’s formulation of “social sculpture,” he has moved from figurative “anti-painting” to the making and maintenance of projects aimed at the transformation of social structures and sites, and to symbolic abstract painting. In 1993, Lowe cofounded Project Row Houses in Houston’s Third Ward, working with fellow artists James Bettison (1958–1997), Bert Long, Jr. (1940–2013), Jesse Lott, Floyd Newsum, Bert Samples, and ...

NEW YORK, NY.- David Zwirner is presenting Who Loves the Sun, an exhibition of new work by Marcel Dzama, on view at the gallery’s 34 East 69th Street location in New York. The exhibition coincides with the opening of a major survey of the artist’s work at the Sara Hildén Art Museum, Tampere, Finland. Taking its title from a song by the Velvet Underground, Who Loves the Sun features an array of new drawings that expand on Dzama’s interest in travel and nature, two themes that have become increasingly prevalent in his art. Many of these new works were initially inspired by photographs Dzama took in Morocco, Mexico, and Fire Island, places he traveled before the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Dzama incorporates elements of the ... More

At 75, the Ojai Music Festival stays focused on the future
OJAI, CALIF.- Returning is a process. Rarely is it linear. The Ojai Music Festival, for instance, returned, Sept. 16-19, to celebrate its 75th year after a long pandemic absence. But there were setbacks among the comebacks. Compromises were made to accommodate its move from spring to the final days of summer. An artist was held up in Spain by travel restrictions. Diligently enforced safety measures slightly harshed the vibe of this storied event, a rigorous yet relaxing haven for contemporary music tucked in an idyllic valley of straight-faced mysticism and sweet Pixie tangerines. This edition of the festival is the first under the leadership of Ara Guzelimian, back at the helm after a run in the 1990s. Each year, the person in his position organizes the programming with a new music director; for Guzelimian’s debut, he chose composer ... More

Anthony Johnson, actor known for 'Friday,' dies at 55
NEW YORK, NY.- Anthony Johnson, an actor and comedian known for small but memorable roles in “Friday,” “House Party” and about two dozen other movies, died on Sept. 6. He was 55. His death, in a hospital in Los Angeles County, California, was confirmed by his agent, LyNea Bell, and the county medical examiner’s office; neither specified a cause. Johnson is perhaps best known for playing Ezal, a drug addict and thief who unintentionally interrupts a heist, in the 1995 movie “Friday,” starring Ice Cube. Johnson’s other film credits, sometimes as A.J. Johnson, include “House Party” (1990), “Menace II Society” (1993) and “B.A.P.S.” (1997).

WIELS presents an unprecedented exhibition of Marcel Broodthaers
BRUSSELS.- WIELS presents an unprecedented exhibition of Marcel Broodthaers, elaborated in close collaboration with the Succession Marcel Broodthaers. Taking the popular aspects of plastic street signs, Marcel Broodthaers (1924-1976) composed enigmatic visual poems with signals, images, letters, words or punctuation, eluding direct and universal meaning. Made industrially with a technique of vacuum formed moulds, the soft contours of the characters and graphics make the printed language palpable, words and pictograms moulded into containers for ideas. He defined these works as “treating the image as word and the word as image”, a criticism of conceptual art’s utilitarian use as information of language, favouring instead its poetic dimension. WIELS now presents the entire series of 36 main motifs of the plaques by Broodthaers, while also ... More
