The show is based on an academic essay by Dr. Jérôme Neutres entitled God’s Left Hand: Analysis of the plaster sculpture of Pablo Picasso’s palm.

NEW YORK, NY.- Galerie Gmurzynska is presenting to its New York audience La Main de Picasso, the centerpiece and namesake of the exhibition being a rare and singular treasure: a plaster cast of Pablo Picasso’s left hand. The show is based on an academic essay by Dr. Jérôme Neutres entitled God’s Left Hand: Analysis of the plaster sculpture of Pablo Picasso’s palm. Produced in 1937, the same year as Guernica, the plaster sculpture of Pablo Picasso’s left hand is the only known modelling exemplar in Picasso’s oeuvre of his left-hand palm – the only possible life model for the right-handed sculptor– whereas the artist’s hand is a recurring motif in his paintings and sculptures. To Picasso, the hand bespeaks of the academic subject that reveals the artist’s talent; it becomes the symbol of the creative force while representing the bodily part that exemplifies the fate and ...

ORANI.- The Museo Nivola is presenting Pedro Reyes. Zero Armi Nucleari, the first solo exhibition of the Mexican artist in an Italian institution. The exhibition presents the developments of the Zero Nukes campaign, launched by the artist in collaboration with numerous institutions and figures from the world of art and science, to bring the nuclear threat to the attention of the public and put pressure on governments to reduce the production and pursue the disarmament. Zero Nukes (2020) is an inflatable sculpture created as part of the Amnesia Atómica project, promoted by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, a non-profit association created more than 70 years ago, in the aftermath of the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to spread awareness relating to technologies that are potentially lethal to humankind. The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 was followed by decades of inattention and "collective amnesia." The nuclear threat, however, ha ... More

Lucian Freud, Man Smoking. Oil on canvas, 20 × 16 in. (50.8 × 40.8 cm.). Painted in 1986−1987. From a private collection.

LONDON.- From 27 September to 16 December 2022, Ordovas commemorates the centenary of the birth of Lucian Freud with a loan exhibition dedicated to the artist’s lifelong love of horses. Bringing together a carefully selected group of paintings, portraits and sketchbooks loaned from both museum and private collections, the exhibition explores the influence of horses on his life and art, and the diverse friendships and acquaintances that were made as a result. Lucian Freud’s (1922–2011) fascination began in early childhood; as a young boy he would go riding in the countryside outside Berlin where his maternal grandparents kept horses and while at boarding school in Devon, he was sometimes found sleeping in the stables, reputedly enjoying the company of the animals more than attending lessons. Freud sketched and painted equine pictures ... More

Cara Nahaul, Night Foam, 2022. Oil on linen, 4o x 70 cm.

LONDON.- Taymour Grahne Projects is presenting Swimming Lessons, a solo exhibition by London-based artist Cara Nahaul. Text by Allie Biswas. A UK-based writer and editor for projects such as The Soul of a Nation Reader: Writings by and about Black American Artists, 1960-1980 with Mark Godfrey, published in June 2021. In the book (*1) that accompanies this exhibition, Cara Nahaul writes: “My childhood is flooded with memories of the sea … a body of water that sits between Malaysia and Mauritius—the islands of my parents.” Since her earliest explorations as an artist, the Indian Ocean has been vital to Nahaul, forming an integral framework for her vivid paintings of white-hued houses and lavish greenery—crisp compositions constructed from minimal components—as well as her hazier pencil-and-pastel drawings of the same verdant landscape. Memory functions in tandem: the recollections cited by the ... More

Situated in the Tate Modern Garden, directly opposite St. Paul’s Cathedral, London-based choral groups of the diaspora will perform at sunset within a sliced open scale model of the dome of St. P ...

Mat Collishaw opens "One Man Show" at Tatintsian Gallery
DUBAI.- Mat Collishaw is one of the most significant and compelling artists in contemporary British art. With an early foundation at Goldsmiths College, Collishaw formed part of the legendary movement of Young British Artists (YBA’s). He was one of 16 young artists who participated in the seminal Freeze exhibition organized by Damien Hirst in 1988 as well as the famous Sensation show of 1997.

The works encourage us to think about fundamental questions of psychology, history, sociology, and science. Behind the richness and visual appeal ... More

Making happy discoveries at a seasonal showcase
NEW YORK, NY.- With its something-for-everyone ethos, the Fall for Dance festival, nearly 20 years old, continues to pack the house at New York City Center, and two-plus years of a pandemic have made no discernible dent in its popularity. On opening night Wednesday, the line to enter the theater snaked around the block from 55th Street onto Seventh Avenue. That enthusiasm was also evident inside, where the warmly received Program 1 featured Compagnie Hervé Koubi from France, a teenage duo from the Bavarian State Ballet and New York City’s own Gibney Company. Ideally, Fall for Dance is a place of happy discovery, where viewers are introduced to something they haven’t seen before and will want to seek out again. Of this year’s first two sample-platter programs, it was the second, for me, that offered this kind of encounter — most notably ... More

The exhibition, Cascading Principles: Expansions within Geometry, Philosophy, and Interference, brings together more than thirty-five sculptures realised by the artist over the last seventeen years.

Veronika Kellndorfer presents newly constructed Brick & Machine building in Culver City
CULVER CITY.- Christopher Grimes Projects shared images of Veronika Kellndorfer’s Succulent Screen, a site-specific work commissioned for the newly constructed Brick & Machine building in Culver City. Succulent Screen extends over the entire glass facade becoming an essential part of the building, integrated into the structure. Spanning from the ground floor entrance to the top floor, this photographic glass image merges with the facade: a juxtaposition of plants in relation to the geometric architecture of the rectangular window mullions. The seasonal altitudes of the sun project varying reflections on the adjacent walls. The image–photographed from within the Freeman House in Los Angeles during Kellndorfer’s residency at Villa Aurora–shows a window through which one can see colossal vertical succulents pressing against the thin membrane ...

Steidl releases 'William Eggleston: CHROMES'
NEW YORK, NY.- This is the long-awaited reprint of William Eggleston's Chromes, the first in the ongoing series of boxed sets published by Steidl examining the entirety of Eggleston’s seminal œuvre. Eggleston’s standing as one of the masters of color photography is widely acknowledged. But the gradual steps by which he transformed from an unknown into a leading artist are less well known. Chromes is an edit of more than 5,000 Kodachromes and Ektachromes taken from ten chronologically ordered binders found in a safe at the Eggleston Artistic Trust. This archive had once been used by John Szarkowski who selected the 48 images printed in Eggleston’s seminal book William Eggleston's Guide, while the rest of the archive has remained almost entirely unpublished. This book presents Eggleston’s early Memphis imagery, his testing of color ... More

Solo exhibition explores a feminist digitial utopia
SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- re.riddle is presenting Mago Leymusoom, a solo exhibition by multidisciplinary artist Heesoo Kwon that began on September 22 and will continue through October 31, 2022. "Where investigation of ancestral healing, queer bodies and the metaverse converge, we find a roadmap to the work of Heesoo Kwon." In her solo exhibition, Mago Leymusoom, Kwon reclaims the matriarchal origin story of Magohalmi (마고할미 or Mago 마고), a powerful female deity from Korean shamanic mythology. Mago is the creator, progenitor and sovereign of humanity, nature, and all geographical formations. However, during the patriarchal period of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), there was a shift in the imaging of Mago to that which was reductive and debased. The celestial creator became a marginal deity and in some folk tales recharacterized as a monstrous ... More

Structured Abstraction: A 1950s Pierre Soulages Masterpiece

On a day like today, Cambodian photographer and journalist Dith Pran was born
September 27, 1942. Dith Pran (27 September 1942 - 30 March 2008) was a Cambodian photojournalist. He was a refugee and survivor of the Cambodian genocide and the subject of the film The Killing Fields (1984). When Cambodians were forced to work in labour camps, Dith had to endure four years of starvation and torture before Vietnam overthrew the Khmer Rouge in December 1978. He coined the phrase "killing fields" to refer to the clusters of corpses and skeletal remains of victims he encountered during his 40-mile (60 km) escape. His three brothers and one sister were killed in Cambodia.
