Celebrating the Artistic Legacy of Abstract Painter Judith Rothschild at Moss Galleries in Portland

Judith Rothschild, Untitled, 1945. Ink, graphite, and collage on board. 7 3/4 x 10 5/8 in.

NEW YORK, NY.- Moss Galleries is presenting a retrospective honoring the extraordinary talent and artistic vision of abstract painter Judith Rothschild (1921–1993). Judith Rothschild Retrospective: Six Decades of Color and Abstraction features 21 works by Rothschild curated by both Elizabeth Moss and a leading Anonymous Abstract Curator including paintings, collages, and works on paper from the 1940s through the 1990s. On view from July 18 to August 14 at Moss Galleries in Portland, the exhibition offers a rare glimpse into the evolution of this remarkable artist. Judith Rothschild (1921–1993) was a trailblazer in the art world, her unique style combined strong outlines with bold swaths of color, creating dynamic and visually striking compositions. In the later years of her career, Rothschild delved into relief paintings, employing white foamboard, later painted metal “cutout” forms, against colored backgrounds t ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- A Brazilian artist strolled into the British Museum last month and approached a table where visitors are allowed to interact with historic objects. After handling a 17th-century British coin for a moment, he seemingly returned it and moved on, like thousands of other visitors. Only last week did the museum discover — through the artist’s Instagram page — that he had ... More

Neue Galerie to open "Egon Schiele: Living Landscapes" on October 17   The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Genesis announce partnership for The Met Facade Commission series   The eruption of Mt. Vesuvius wasn't Pompeii's only killer

Egon Schiele in front of a studio mirror, Vienna, 1915.

NEW YORK, NY.- Neue Galerie New York will present "Egon Schiele: Living Landscapes," a special exhibition opening on October 17, 2024. This show will investigate the importance of landscape in the Austrian artist's work. Plants, natural environments, and townscapes determine the spaces Egon Schiele created in his paintings, and they also reflect the rich symbolism he employed that is centered around the human condition. In particular, plants are often endowed with an allegorical meaning. Flowers and trees assume the role of portrait subjects and convey an almost human appearance. Schiele’s landscapes always represent more than their ... More

“The Eruption of Vesuvius,” an 18th-century depiction of the catastrophe by Pierre-Jacques Volaire. (Art Institute of Chicago via The New York Times)

NEW YORK, NY.- Pompeii was destroyed by the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79, entombing residents under layers of volcanic ash. But there is more to this story of an ancient Roman city’s doom. Research published Thursday in the journal Frontiers in Earth Science offers proof that Pompeii was simultaneously wrecked by a massive earthquake. The discovery establishes a new timeline for the city’s demise and shows that fresh approaches to research can reveal additional secrets from well-studied archaeological sites. Researchers ... More

WASHINGTON, DC.- President-elect John F. Kennedy was there for dinner the night before his inauguration. Years later, President-elect Ronald Reagan was there too.

BUDAPEST.- The fundamental idea of the exhibition is to explore a familiar, almost everyday architectural phenomenon, the characteristic Hungarian “cube house” (a house with a hip roof, the so-called Kádár cube) as an expression of architectural modernization. The exhibition aims to present the origin, development, and impact of this house type in the history of Hungarian visual culture through various ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Whenever our family goes on long car rides, we’ve found that the best way to placate our children is to listen to the podcast “Greeking Out” from National Geographic Kids. Narrated by Kenny Curtis and the all-knowing, snake-loving “Oracle of Wi-Fi,” the show retells stories from ancient Greek mythology in colorful ways. After 10 seasons, our two boys have become well-versed in the minutiae of mythos. Did you know that the blind seer Tiresias ... More

Writing helped her realize she was a woman. It also made her famous.
NEW YORK, NY.- Before Camila Sosa Villada transitioned and stepped out into the world as a woman, she wrote as one. Growing up in the province of Córdoba, in the Argentine interior, she inhabited a first-person, female voice in the stories that she wrote and kept secret from her parents. It was a powerful act of emancipation, she said, one laden with measures of shame and mischief, as if she were doing something forbidden. “Writing enabled a certain courage,” Sosa Villada said in an interview from her home in Córdoba. “It was prophetic.” Years later, that voice would be celebrated. Sosa Villada’s work has collected international prizes and accolades, often drawing on her own harsh experiences as a sex worker, an actress and a travesti — a term she and others in Latin America use to describe people who were assigned ...

Duke Fakir, last surviving member of the Four Tops, dies at 88
NEW YORK, NY.- Abdul Fakir, who was known as Duke, the last remaining original member of the Four Tops, one of Motown’s bestselling and most beloved groups, died Monday at his home in Detroit. He was 88. His family said in a statement that the cause was heart failure. Fakir sang first tenor with the Four Tops, who were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. The group’s hits not only helped define the “Motown Sound” but also the entire 1960s era of pop. Their classics included the exuberant “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)” and the urgent “Reach Out, I’ll Be There,” both of which hit No. 1, along with the barreling Top 10 staples “It’s The Same Old Song,” “Standing In the Shadows of Love” and “Bernadette.” For two years, the Four Tops ...

Quannah ChasingHorse's mother-of-pearl septum tusk
NEW YORK, NY.- The mother-of-pearl tusk that runs through Quannah ChasingHorse’s septum is not a fashion statement. Neither is her chin tattoo. Both serve as direct ties to her Han Gwich’in tribe in Eagle Village, Alaska — rites of passage that symbolize her official role within her community as a hunter and warrior. They also serve as inspiration to the younger members of ChasingHorse’s Indigenous communities, which includes the Sicangu and Oglala Lakota nations of the Great Plains and Black Hills. “Bad River,” a documentary narrated by ChasingHorse currently streaming on Xfinity, is about the native Wisconsin Bad River Band’s battle to save Lake Superior. In it, a girl tells ChasingHorse that seeing how she has reclaimed this practice has had a positive influence on her own relationship with the traditional tattoo custom. ... More

The jewelry Shiona Turini never takes off
NEW YORK, NY.- Somewhere at the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean, in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle, is one of four gold bracelets, gifted to Shiona Turini by her mother. She lost it while diving into the water from a cliff. A friend helped her search underwater for it with no luck. But this hasn’t deterred Turini from wearing most of her personal jewelry at all times. In an interview that has been edited and condensed, one of the stylists behind Beyoncé’s “Cowboy Carter” era talked about her most cherished pieces: two necklaces and the three remaining gold bracelets that represent home; three rings; and a friendship bracelet that she found at a truck stop while styling Beyoncé’s Renaissance Tour. Q: Do you have a favorite piece of jewelry? A: I pretty much wear the exact same jewelry every single day. I’ll start with the bangles: I ... More

Robert L. Allen, who shed light on a Navy yard blast and trial, dies at 82
NEW YORK, NY.- Robert L. Allen, who definitively told the story of 50 Black sailors who were convicted of conspiracy to commit mutiny for refusing to continue to load munitions onto cargo ships after explosions had blown apart two ships at a California port during World War II, killing hundreds, died July 10 at his home in Benecia, California. He was 82. He died a week before the Navy exonerated the men. His former wife Janet Carter said the cause was kidney failure. “The secretary of the Navy called to offer condolences,” Carter said in an interview, referring to Carlos Del Toro. “And he said, ‘I’m going to do more than that — I’m going to exonerate these sailors.’ ” Carter, who remained close to her former husband, a writer, activist and academic, added, “I cried in part because Robert wasn’t here to see it.” ...

Last chance to see: Exhibition by Arthur Simms, Lucy Fradkin and Philip Hinge at Martos Gallery
NEW YORK, NY.- In Arthur Simms’ Icema’s World and Lucy Fradkin’s Good Morning Alice and Other Stories, two artists reflect on the legacies they have come to share as a married couple. These exhibitions are each grounded in tribute to Simms’ mother, Icema Erica Simms (1924–2015), but also emanate into broader examinations of identity, and how it is informed both by those who came before us and those with whom we share our lives. Icema immigrated to New York in the 1960s, leaving her husband and children behind in Kingston, Jamaica, while she worked to facilitate their reunion, caring for an American family in Westchester. Icema is foundational to these two solo exhibitions—had she not endured her first lonely years in New York, Simms and Fradkin may never have met—however, the two artists reciprocate homage and elegy ...

In 'Pre-Existing Condition,' a character isn't defined by abuse, or one actress
NEW YORK, NY.- Most actors will tell you that when they take on a role, they want to own it. If it’s a classic or a play based on a movie, they like to say that they avoid watching earlier performances so they can go in free of preconceptions. The women taking turns playing A, the central character in Marin Ireland’s new play “Pre-Existing Condition,” went for a communal quality. “When you’re seeing a person perform, it has the DNA of all the other people because we’ve watched each other,” director and actress Maria Dizzia said. Tavi Gevinson, who starts her stint as A on July 23, said, “I think it definitely helps eliminate this illusion that there is some ideal performance that you’re trying to unlock and do an imitation of; it’s something that you’re co-creating with the piece every night.” The show, whose run at ...

Karma will open an exhibition of new paintings by Andrew Cranston
LOS ANGELES, CA.- Karma presents One day this will be a long time ago, an exhibition of new paintings by Andrew Cranston, open from July 25 to September 14, 2024, at 7351 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles. With One day this will be a long time ago, Andrew Cranston continues his exploration of how the world of painting, like the world of memory, leaks into the real. Marking the Scottish artist’s first exhibition on the West Coast of the United States, this new suite centers Glasgow, his home for the past twenty-seven years. Working here in oil, varnish, acrylic, and collage on a range of supports—canvas, board, hardback book covers—the artist responds to the demands, or what he calls “momentum,” of a given composition even as he forms it. Figures and objects emerge, dissolve, reemerge, and deliquesce. For Cranston, assemblage ... More

Berggruen Gallery announces first exhibition with artist Heather Day
SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Berggruen Gallery announced Heather Day: Cut, Split, Horizon, an exhibition of new work by American artist Heather Day. This show marks her first solo exhibition with the gallery. Heather Day: Cut, Split, Horizon will be on view from August 1 through September 19, 2024. The gallery will host a reception for the artist on Thursday August 1, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. In her paintings, Heather Day explores landscape, the figure, memory, and sensation through surges of unabashed color, cut and sewn into biomorphic shapes which split and commandeer the canvas. At once harmonious and confrontational, Day’s paintings tangle with the relationship between the material and the conceptual, considering the indescribable phenomena which define our emotional and sensorial perceptions of our surroundings. In some ... More
