Israeli artist shuts Venice Biennale exhibit, calls for Gaza cease-fire

Though the doors will be closed, visitors will still be able to see parts of Patir’s video pieces through the pavilion’s windows. (Matteo de Mayda/The New York Times)

VENICE.- Since February thousands of pro-Palestinian activists have tried in vain to get the Venice Biennale, one of the world’s most prestigious international art exhibitions, to ban Israel over its conduct of the war in the Gaza Strip. But on Tuesday, when the Biennale’s international pavilions open for a media preview, the doors to the Israel pavilion will nonetheless remain locked, at the behest ... More

In City Ballet's coming season, new works and earlier curtain times
NEW YORK, NY.- New York City Ballet’s 2024-25 season will feature earlier curtain times, fewer intermissions and a tribute to the great American ballerina Maria Tallchief, the company announced Monday. Starting in the fall, in response to audience feedback and what Wendy Whelan, City Ballet’s associate artistic director, called “new ways of life” after the pandemic, curtain times will be pushed up, with all evening performances beginning at 7:30 p.m. (Matinees will remain at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and 3 p.m. on Sundays.) In addition, about 40% of the season’s repertory performances will include only one intermission, down from the standard two. “Slightly shorter performances without an intermission makes everybody happy — dancers, audience members, everybody,” said Jonathan Stafford, City Ballet’s artistic director. “You’re still getting the ...

Maurice El Medioni, Jewish Algerian pianist, dies at 95
NEW YORK, NY.- Maurice El Medioni, an Algerian pianist who fused Jewish and Arab musical traditions into a singular style he called “Pianoriental,” died March 25 in Israel. He was 95. His death, at a nursing home in Herzliya, on Israel’s central coast, was confirmed by his manager, Yvonne Kahan. Medioni was a last representative of a once vibrant Jewish-Arab musical culture that flourished in North Africa before and after World War II and proudly drew from both heritages. In Oran, the Algerian port where he was born, he was sought after by Arabs and Jews alike to play at weddings and at banquets, in the years between the war and 1961, when the threat of violence and Algeria’s new independence from France drove Medioni and thousands of other Jews to flee. With his bounding octaves, his quasi-microtonal shifts in the style of traditional Arab music, his cheeky rumba rhythms lear ... More

Park rangers search for 2 vandals who toppled ancient rocks at Lake Mead
VENICE.- Victoria Miro is delighted to present Sarah Sze’s first exhibition at Victoria Miro Venice. This exhibition, the artist’s sixth with Victoria Miro, marks a return to Venice for Sze, who featured in the 1999 and 2015 Biennales and represented the United States with her exhibition Triple Point in the 2013 Biennale. Two immersive environments explore how images are constructed and memories are formed.

Modernizing ink: Pioneering artist Lui Shou-Kwan on view at Alisan Fine Arts New York
NEW YORK, NY.- Alisan Fine Arts is announced Shifting Landscapes, a solo exhibition celebrating the art of pioneering ink artist Lui Shou-Kwan (1919-1975). Shifting Landscapes, Lui’s first exhibition in New York, presents transformative works from the artist’s career that bridge tradition and modernity while sparking new dialogue in the international art community. Lui was a vanguard figure of the New Ink Movement in Hong Kong, a movement that reimagined the Chinese Ink tradition and flourished from the 1950s to 1970s. Extremely influential to generations of artists after him, Lui was instrumental in transforming traditional Chinese ink painting into a modern, global art form. Surveying three decades, Shifting Landscapes will run from February 27 to April 27, 2024, at Alisan Fine Arts’ recently opened New York gallery. Lui inherited his interest in painting from his father, Lui Canming (1892-1963), a sch ... More

'A Different World' hits the road to help historically Black colleges
NEW YORK, NY.- Picture a pampered socialite ostentatiously putting her generational wealth on display. Or an outspoken teenage activist leading a climate change protest. Or a charismatic opportunist luring people into his latest scam. These descriptions apply equally to characters from “A Different World” — a sitcom that ran from 1987 to 1993 — and to today’s social media influencers. So it’s little wonder that the show, which streams on Amazon and Max, resonates with Generation Z. The series began as a spinoff of “The Cosby Show” centered on Denise Huxtable (Lisa Bonet), and it became a hit in its own right. “A Different World” broke ground by giving high visibility to an ensemble of aspirational Black young adults, following an eclectic cross-section of coeds attending Hillman College, a fictional historically Black university. There they dealt with ... More

Ultra-high denominations come together at Heritage's CSNS Currency Auction
DALLAS, TX.- One of the first rules of trophy hunting: Bigger is better. Under that context, the most serious collectors of American currency will swarm to Heritage’s CSNS Currency Signature® Auction May 7-10 — a massive event teeming with more than 2,100 lots, including arguably the finest assemblage of ultra-high-denomination notes ever to reach the auction block. As many as 15 or more banknotes that will be offered in this auction are expected to bring six-figure results. In numismatic circles, anything larger than $100 is considered a “high-denomination” note. The “ultra” qualifier is reserved for the über-elusive $5,000 and $10,000 trophies — a half a dozen of which will be available in this extraordinary event. “These ultra-high-denomination banknotes are incredibly popular and very tightly held,” says Dustin Johnston, Vice President of Currency at Heritage Auctions. “The fact that this auction h ...

Robert Beerbohm, pioneering comic book retailer and historian, dies at 71
NEW YORK, NY.- Robert Beerbohm, who in the 1970s helped start the first comic book chain stores and then, after a flood wiped out inventory in his warehouse, became a professed archaeologist of comics history, died March 27 at his home in Fremont, Nebraska. He was 71. His daughter, Katy Beerbohm-Young, said the cause was colorectal cancer. A pugnacious character on the comic book scene for decades, Beerbohm once summed up his career as “a hobby that got way out of hand.” It started in his early teens, when he boarded a Greyhound bus in Nebraska for a 28-hour trip to sell comics at a convention in Houston. It ended as he was trying to finish writing “Comic Book Wars,” his eagerly awaited magnum opus about the industry. In between, Beerbohm waited on Jerry Garcia, Robin Williams and Bruce Lee at his stores in California; discovered what w ... More
