Small Gems...

Today’s catalogue is titled “Small Gems” showcasing our collection of twenty-four “Small Gems” that are all highly aesthetic intimate passages into the private worlds of each artist.

NEW YORK, NY.- Welcome to VFA………..They say good things come in small packages….so we are dedicating our video and accompanying catalogue to “Small Gems.” These small works create a symphony by merging colors, space and light all in scale. Scale is not dependent on size and shows that the smaller end of the spectrum can most certainly contain expansive strength. Smaller works pull our eyes at first into their space, asserting themselves within……a kind of intimate glance into a private world. Perle Fine stated that “a skilled artist can achieve “impact” even at the size of a “postage stamp.” In 1936 the American Abstract Artist Group was founded based on the foundation of purely American abstraction. Artists such as Charles Green Shaw, George L. K. Morris, Balcomb Greene and Eugene Gallatin created small works on the aesthetic level of Paul Klee who was simply the last genius of small abstraction. These artists revolutionized American abs ...

LONDON.- The V&A presents Design 1900 – Now, a new permanent gallery exploring how design shapes and is shaped by how we live, work, travel, communicate and consume. Housed within the museum’s former 20th Century Gallery, this newly curated space brings together leading design objects alongside the first redisplay of V&A’s celebrated Rapid Response Collecting programme since its founding in 2014. As part of the gallery, new acquisitions have gone on display for the first time at the V&A, including Margaret Calvert and Jock Kinneir’s iconic British road signage system, Kim Kardashian’s Selfish book, Nike’s Nigeria football shirt for the 2018 World Cup and a one-of-a-kind desk designed by Future Systems for Condé Nast Chairman Jonathan Newhouse. A series of new Rapid Response Collecting objects are also on display marking one of the most disruptive and impactful years in recent memory. From 3D-printed door openers to ... More

The original Statue of Liberty’s plaster model at the Musee des Arts et Metiers in Paris, June 7, 2021. Dmitry Kostyukov/The New York Times.

by Roger Cohen

PARIS (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- At the Museum of Arts and Crafts, not one of the premier tourist venues in Paris, in the subdued light of a former church, stands the plaster model for the Statue of Liberty. Made in 1878 by French sculptor Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi, eight years before Lady Liberty’s inauguration in New York Harbor, it represents the first full imagining of what would become, for many but not all, a paramount icon of freedom. Model and statue have never stood in proximity in New York. But now one of the oldest American alliances, formally cemented in 1778 after the French supported the Revolutionary War, is to be marked through a reunion of sorts. A bronze reproduction of Bartholdi’s model will cross the Atlantic this month to stand near her much larger counterpart for the first time. At 9.3 feet, the model at the museum ... More

Many celebrated artworks are hidden away in storage vaults at places like the Geneva Free Port in Switzerland, May 19, 2016. Fred Merz/The New York Times.

by Graham Bowley

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- The federal agents who raided a drug dealer’s house in a suburb of Philadelphia found marijuana and, to their surprise, $2.5 million in cash stashed in a secret compartment beneath a fish tank. But they were even more surprised to discover so much art — 14 paintings on the walls and another 33 stacked in a storage unit a few miles away from the home of the dealer, Ronald Belciano. The artists included Renoir, Picasso and Salvador Dalí. “That jumped out at us,” said Brian A. Michael, special agent in charge for Homeland Security Investigations Philadelphia. “That amount of artwork was not something you come across in every investigation.” It turned out, Belciano used the art to launder some of his drug cash, purchasing the works ...

COPENHAGEN.- Iranian-born artist Farshad Farzankia has taken the Danish art scene by storm and is attracting international attention. His colourful, imaginative paintings hark back to century-old traditions while also taking a critical look at our own time. On 19 June, the acclaimed artist opened his first museum exhibition at ARKEN Museum of Modern Art just south of Copenhagen, Denmark. A rapidly rising star, Farshad Farzankia has achieved great recognition in Denmark and internationally with numerous solo and group exhibitions to his name. This summer, Farzankia’s artistic practice unfolds in a museum exhibition for the first time with the opening of Farshad Farzankia – If I Stand at ARKEN. The solo show features 24 paintings, drawings and silkscreen prints, several of them created especially for the exhibition. Born in the Iranian capital Tehran in 1980, Farzankia arrived in Denmark at the age of nine when his family fled their home in ... More

Catherine Opie. Essays by Hilton Als, Elizabeth A. T. Smith, Douglas Fogle, Helen Molesworth, and Catherine Opie in conversation with CharlotteCotton. Phaidon.

NEW YORK, NY.- Long awaited, the first survey of the work of one of America's foremost contemporary fine art photographers. For almost 40 years, Catherine Opie has been documenting with psychological acuity the cultural and geographic identity of contemporary America. This unique artist monograph presents a compelling visual narrative of Opie's work since the early 1980s, pairing images across bodies of work to form a full picture of her artistic vision. Catherine Opie was given her first camera – a Kodak Instamatic – as a gift at the age of nine, after writing her school report on the 20th century photographer Lewis Hine and his portraits of child labourers. It was an unusual topic for an Ohio schoolgirl in 1970, though an entirely apt choice for the future photographer and fine artist. Today, Opie is one of America's foremost contemporary fine art ...

VIENNA.- Every object “must bear a distinct mark of individuality, beauty and precise execution”, wrote Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the founder of the Arts and Crafts movement, to Josef Hoffmann, the founding member and main representative of the Wiener Werkstätte. This certainly applies to the objects in Dorotheum’s Jugendstil sale in Vienna on 7 July 2021. The main highlight of the auction is a rare table or mantel clock by Josef Hoffmann, executed by the Wiener Werkstätte. Estimated at 100,000 to 150,000 euros, this clock was manufactured in 1903, the founding year of the Wiener Werkstätte, and played a pioneering role for later clock concepts developed by Mackintosh. The two Secessionists Gustav Klimt and Josef Hoffmann influenced each other. For example, the mosaic frieze in the Palais Stoclet in Brussels, ... More

Ralston Crawford (1906-1978), Test Able, 1946, oil on canvas, 23 5/8 x 17 5/8 in. Georgia Museum of Art, University of Georgia, Athens, Eva Underhill Holbrook Memorial Collection of American Art, Gift of Alfred H. Holbrook, GMOA 1946.140.

A new experimental platform for contemporary culture to launch during Art Rotterdam week   Frist Art Museum presents "Bethany Collins: Evensong"   Art Gallery of Nova Scotia acquires new works

Huidenclub was co-founded by Chantal Schoenmakers and Liv Vaisberg.

ROTTERDAM.- Situated in a repurposed industrial building in the Diepenveen Building, the Huidenclub is a new experimental space dedicated to contemporary culture. The Huidenclub, holding its name from its original function as a tannery, is conceived as a platform to express a variety of voices and narratives within the framework of biannual themes addressing urgent contemporary topics. The platform will launch on 30 June 2021 with a first theme Self-Assemble, addressing how as a bottom-up non-institution it can self-assemble and strategically address societal and ecological justice. Three exhibitions, focussed on both art and on design, the two main axes of the Huidenclub, will be hosted in two cubes built for the purpose. Visitors are welcome from 30 June to 4 July. The art exhibition 'Shaking the Habitual' highlights the Huidenclub's mission ... More

NASHVILLE, TENN.- The Frist Art Museum presents Bethany Collins: Evensong, an exhibition of multimedia works—including paintings, drawings, prints, an artist’s book, and wallpaper—that explores the historic intersection of language and race. Organized by the Frist Art Museum, the exhibition is on view from June 11 through September 12, 2021. In her conceptually driven practice, Chicago-based artist Bethany Collins (b. 1984) mines official publications—from dictionaries to newspapers to government reports—to find words or phrases that reflect a cultural ethos, particularly those related to racial and national identities. “The Frist is pleased to be presenting a selection of this increasingly in-demand artist’s timely work. After the 2016 presidential election, Collins deepened her study of past texts in an effort to better understand the present great divide,” said Frist Art Museum senior curator Katie ... More

120 CDs later, a conductor's legacy is still uncertain
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Something odd happens when you reach the 28th disc in Sony’s enormous, enlightening, at times exasperating 120-CD box set of recordings by Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra. The box covers the period when that ensemble was regarded as little short of a miracle — “America’s finest orchestra,” as The New York Times put it in 1954. For the first four tracks, you’ve been hearing Ormandy and his “Fabulous Philadelphians” slather their familiar sound over Haydn’s Symphony No. 101, their energetic, brisk playing admirably agile in a recording from 1949, despite their signature lashings of full-fat cream in the strings. Then comes something different. It’s still Haydn, his Symphony No. 92 this time, and it’s still 1949. But the sound is snappier, the proportions more formal, the atmosphere more careful, yet charming for it. ... More

Father and son return to the stage, together. Again. No regrets.
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- In his Instagram profile, Ephraim Birney describes himself as “the black sheep out of work actor in a family of black sheep working actors.” Born and raised in New York, the 24-year-old actor is the elder child of Reed Birney (a Tony winner in 2016 for his performance in “The Humans”) and Constance Shulman (“Doug,” “Orange Is the New Black”). His little sister, Gus Birney, has appeared in the TV series “The Mist” and “Dickinson.” Ephraim Birney has booked jobs, too — “Gotham,” “The Americans” — but not quite as many. “The weird thing isn’t that I’m an actor,” he said during a recent video call. “The weird thing is that I’m not working as an actor.” But Ephraim Birney, who was seated next to his father in the kitchen of their summer home in the Catskills, is working now. On Friday, the father-son actors begin performances indoors (indoors!) of ... More

Group exhibition surveys over 100 tea bowls made by 11 artists
NEW YORK, NY.- Ippodo Gallery is presenting ‘Magic of the Tea Bowl’, a group exhibition surveying over 100 tea bowls made by 11 artists, ranging from emerging to established ceramic artists. These artists take the traditional, highly regarded form of the tea bowl and reconstruct it with their own fresh contemporary style. These pieces, made by artists of different backgrounds – from self-taught ceramicists to sons of master potters, the range of work and visual identity is vast. The tea bowl is one of the most valuable, highly respected forms of art in Asian culture. Since the 16th century, the Japanese have used the tea bowl in traditional tea ceremony and as a result, it has become an object held at high esteem. Ippodo Gallery New York, throughout the years, have witnessed the attention that tea bowls receive. They have the capacity to capture hearts and become a mediator between ... More

RISD Museum announces reopening
PROVIDENCE, RI.- The RISD Museum reopened to the general public on June 13, 2021 after having been closed since March 13, 2020. Exhibitions on view include: In Black Flyyy, six short films and videos by artists including Sophia Nahli Allison, Bree Newsome Bass, and Charles Burnett explore self-revelation, craft, legacy, and ancestral knowledge(s) in ways that center Black narratives and challenge white cultural hegemony.

From stories that undermine stereotypes of Black abjection to Afrofuturist provocations that reimagine memory, these works engage themes of movement, imagination, transcendence, spirituality, and the supernatural. ...

Magenta Plains presents a series of new oil on linen paintings by New York artist Joshua Abelow
NEW YORK, NY.- Magenta Plains is presenting Leaky Abstractions, a series of new oil on linen paintings by New York artist Joshua Abelow. Abelow works in several mediums including painting and drawing, photography and poetry. Abelow is also known as an actively engaged artist curator with a long history of supporting and exhibiting under recognized artists. Abelow’s work explores the psychology and psychosis of the Artist through abstraction. For his new series of paintings, Abelow draws parallels between meaning and making with managing and processing information. Leaky Abstractions is a term popularized by software engineer Joel Spolsky in 2002. According to Spolsky, we encounter “leaky abstractions” whenever we use our computers and smartphones. In the simplest terms, he is referring to the ways in which user-friendly icons conceal complicated networks of software code that ... More

Exhibition at Gropius Bau brings together 366 works on paper by Zheng Bo
BERLIN.- Ecological crises, political upheaval and global health emergencies increasingly endanger planetary life. For Zheng Bo, such predicaments stem from the delusion of human primacy on Earth. Global repair requires stepping beyond human perspectives and accepting the interrelatedness of all life forms. With Wanwu Council 萬物社, the Gropius Bau is presenting an exhibition by the Hong Kong-based artist and teacher, who was also the Gropius Bau’s In House: Artist in Residence 2020. Zheng Bo’s art, which is also a form of ecological activism, invites us to reconsider the relationships between nature and culture, humans and nonhumans, equality and ecology. Through films, outdoor participatory exercises and a daily practice of botanical drawing, Zheng Bo takes as his subject the politics of all life forms. From spring 2020, he committed to spending contemplative time with plants every ... More

Christina Quarles's vibrant and textured paintings on view at South London Gallery
LONDON.- American artist Christina Quarles (b. 1985) lives and works in Los Angeles. She creates surreal and deliberately ambiguous images of bodies that seem barely contained by the frame of the canvas. This display at the South London Gallery brings together Quarles’s vibrant and textured paintings, as well as works on paper, and is her first solo exhibition in a major London institution. The figures in Quarles’s expressive, large-scale paintings are an embodiment of her own perspective on the world and she has described them as conveying ‘the experience of living in a body rather than looking at a body.’ Entwined bodies are set against abstracted environments, facial features are obscured and skin is rendered in a spectrum of shifting colour. The ways in which her painted bodies elude definition is a reflection of her own experience of being misread or misrepresented as ... More

Cristin Tierney Gallery presents a temporary immersive installation by Alois Kronschlaeger
NEW YORK, NY.- Cristin Tierney Gallery is presenting Kind of Blue, a temporary immersive installation by Alois Kronschlaeger in a former retail space below the gallery on the Lower East Side. The installation is open through Wednesday June 30th at 219 Bowery. This is the artist's fourth project with the gallery. Viewed from the street, Kronschlaeger's installation rises like a cresting blue swell inside of the space. Beneath the undulating blue forms is a 1500 square-foot gridded structure of 2 x 2-inch wooden planks, covered with almost 500 yards of blue Ultrasuede fabric. Kronschlaeger has carved into the framework, creating a topographical landscape that rises and falls as it slopes away from the entrance. The fabric has been carefully bunched and draped over the planks to create an enormous, continuous, rolling wave of vivid blue. The artwork is designed to be immersive. ... More

CUE Art Foundation opens 'In Longing', a group exhibition curated by Anna Cahn
NEW YORK, NY.- CUE Art Foundation is presenting In Longing, a group exhibition featuring artists Alison Chen, SHAWNÉ MICHAELAIN HOLLOWAY, Raymond Pinto, Marie Ségolène, and Xirin, organized by Anna Cahn. This group of artists, shown together for the first time, are united by their grappling with the emotionally and politically charged power of longing. A central question of the exhibition asks: how is desire affected by the oppressive systems of patriarchy and white supremacy? With diverse practices of performance, installation, text, and movement, the artists engage with the restlessness of longing while closely drawing us into the profundity of inner and outer worlds. The exhibition features eight artworks and premieres two new performances by Xirin and Raymond Pinto, accompanying their installations in the exhibition. In the front gallery, Marie Ségolène debuts her ... More
