Schantz Galleries opens an exhibition of cast glass from Sweden by Bertil Vallien

Bertil Vallien, Janus, 2022, 9 x 11.75 x 4.75" Photo: Göran Örtegren.

STOCKBRIDGE, MASS.- Bertil Vallien is known for his exploration of dualities—past/future, interior/exterior, light/dark, life/death, hot/cold, soft/hard. In his intricately layered cast glass sculptures, surfaces oscillate between transparent polish and distorting grittiness (another duality) to provide multiple visual avenues of entry. Storytelling is fundamental; it begins with the form and finish of the work but develops within the glass body, characters and symbols hovering in suspended animation. Much of Vallien’s approach to construction and content does indeed reinforce a focus on dichotomy, but the work embodies a complex spectrum of elements that make it not so much a binary experience but a pluralistic story about the world we live in. WAYPOINTS, the title that Bertil Vallien chose for this exhibition at Schantz Galleries, offers insight into messages ... More

Exhibition at the Belvedere explores the tree in art   Gagosian opens an exhibition of new and recent works by Sarah Sze   A new audience and a long-awaited return: Hilma af Klint and "The Ten Largest" at Moderna Museet

Klemens Brosch, Tree Study on the Danube, 1926 © Belvedere, Vienna.

VIENNA.- The Tree of Knowledge, the Tree of Enlightenment, the Axis of the World: Following these narrative strands, the exhibition GROW is centered around the tree as a subject in art and its relationship to humankind. Director General Stella Rollig: “In the current climate crisis, the tree is perceived more than ever as a companion whose survival or demise has direct, tangible effects, not the least of which are emotional ones. While a tree dying on your own street is painful, the far-off deforestation of the rainforest is downright frightening. This exhibition explores this deep connection between humans and trees.” Throughout the centuries, the tree has been an area of projection for humankind’s relationship to nature and questions about human identity. The exhibition at the Lower Belvedere builds a thematic connection from the tree of knowledge between good and evil, to the tree of enlightenment, to the tree as metaphorical axis of the world. Whether as a ... More

ATHENS.- Gagosian is presenting new and recent works by Sarah Sze. Opening on September 8, this is her first solo exhibition in Greece and her fourth exhibition with the gallery. Following her presence in Ruins and Fragments at Gagosian Athens earlier this year, this exhibition introduces many additional aspects of Sze’s diverse practice, a spectrum of sculptural propositions and the latest of her oil-and-collage paintings. In employing the full potential of her processes, Sze represents the ephemeral and immaterial in different time scales and durations—from light projections programmed to imply shift and change, to sculptures made of pure paint, fired clay, or stainless steel. Sze gleans from the physical and digital worlds to create art in two and three dimensions of great intricacy and diversity, inviting minute observation while evoking a macroscopic perspective on ...

STOCKHOLM.- After a nine-year long wait, visitors to Moderna Museet in Stockholm can once again enjoy the opportunity to see “The Ten Largest” by Hilma af Klint. Painted in 1907, these works are truly monumental in every sense of the word. Many will remember the series from the museum’s celebrated exhibition in 2013, “Hilma af Klint: Abstract pioneer”. Now a new generation of visitors can become acquainted with these enormous paintings. In the exhibition “Hilma af Klint: The Ten Largest” the works are accompanied by a selection of the artist’s watercolours and a series of hand-coloured photographs of the compositions that has never previously been exhibited in its entirety. In the autumn of 1907 the Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) began the first painting in the series that would come to be known as “The Ten Largest”. Working on these ten paintings over a period ... More

Dressing Room, La Villa Blanc, Albuquerque, 1971 by Jeffrey Silverthorne

DALLAS, TX.- One of the great pleasures of running an art gallery is developing invaluable relationships with the artists. Through time, we learn so much about their lives, their families, politics, desires and philosophy. This exhibition highlights the careers of three PDNB artists that passed away within the past nine months. We pay tribute to the art they created and their everlasting friendship. • Jesse Alexander, 1929 – 2021, b. Santa Barbara, California • Paul Greenberg, 1935 – 2022, b. Kansas City, Missouri • Jeffrey Silverthorne, 1946 – 2022, b. Honolulu, Hawaii We remember Jesse Alexander’s motor sport photographs from the great races in Europe during the 1950's and 60's. He photographed the sexy, fast cars, the handsome drivers speeding dangerously along the winding roads in numerous races including Monte Carlo, Le Mans, and Nürburgring. This was an exceptional era that Jesse witnessed and captured on film. The resulting images are some of the most nota ... More

PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Freeman’s September 21 Books and Manuscripts auction inaugurated Freeman’s fall auction season with the remarkable $277,200 sale of New Englands First Fruits (Lot 11). The extremely rare first edition on early colonial New England includes the first printed account of Harvard University—and garnered considerable interest in Wednesday’s auction, with competitive bidding driving the sale price more than nine times above its pre-sale high estimate of $30,000. “We’re thrilled by the successful sale of New Englands First Fruits, and so is the consignor,” says Darren Winston, Head of Freeman’s Books and Manuscripts department. “This is the first copy to be offered at auction in over 20 years, and today’s result confirms the market demand for this material, setting a new world auction record for the title.” A ...

NEW YORK, NY.- The Whitney Museum of American Art announces that Ralph Lemon is the recipient of the 2022 Bucksbaum Award. Lemon was chosen from the sixty-three intergenerational artists and collectives working across disciplines and media in Whitney Biennial 2022: Quiet as It’s Kept. An interdisciplinary artist, who works primarily in performance, Ralph Lemon has made drawings throughout most of his creative life. He has described the purpose of these works, which have been constant and mostly private, as “a mapping akin to an anthropological practice,” involving research and art making in places such as Japan, Haiti, Côte d’Ivoire and, for many years, the Mississippi Delta. For the Biennial, he developed a choreography of presentation, exhibiting hundreds of drawings from over or more than twenty-five years in five transient variations that unfolded monthly over the course of the exhibition. ...

Steinbrener/Dempf & Huber installs Victory Spikes in Munich
BERLIN.- Victory Spikes, created by the Viennese artist collective Steinbrener/Dempf & Huber, addresses the ongoing international discourse regarding historical monuments and the debate over demolishing controversial structures. The installation will be exhibited in Munich until November 20, 2022. Making a case for not effacing the past, Victory Spikes comments on new ways to update a monument’s historical relevance – with the aim to revitalize Munich’s ambivalent Victory Gate (Siegestor). The monument was originally constructed between 1843–1850 as a war memorial dedicated to the Bavarian army, and after the Second World War, it was repurposed as a shrine for peace. In Victory Spikes, the top of the monument is covered with spikes. Although the spikes that are commonly used to repel pigeons are approximately 10 centimeters ... More

Lawrie Shabibi opens an exhibition of works by Nathaniel Rackowe
DUBAI.- Fractured Landscapes is the third solo exhibition by London-based artist Nathaniel Rackowe (b. 1975, UK) to be shown at the gallery. Rackowe’s practice spans public art, installation, sculpture, contemporary dance and painting; investigating form and materiality through his observations of light and the effect its changeability has on our experiences of urban spaces. Whereas in his previous work Rackowe would often use light-emitting sources (embedding neon tubes into his sculptures), here he considers the notion of light (artificial and natural) as upon reflective surfaces, guiding our sensation of space, material and colour. The title of the exhibition is inspired by a passage in Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro. Klara, the Artificial Friend protagonist of the novel, understands her environment in moments of intense focus by fracturing the visual ... More

Bisma Hussain's first solo exhibition opens at Over the Influence
HONG KONG.- Over the Influence is presenting It’s Already Tomorrow, Bisma Hussain’s first solo exhibition. Bisma Hussain’s vibrant and arresting paintings offer intimate portraits of domestic life that convey the resilience of the human spirit with extraordinary emotion and immediacy. Born and raised in Lahore, Pakistan, Hussain turned to painting at sixteen to cope with debilitating chronic pain. On a personal and cultural level, her undiagnosed illness was met with confusion, disbelief, and denial. Her art- making practice evolved from a need to transform her anguish, isolation, and frustration into something generative, meaningful, and capable of expressing the inexpressible. By exposing what is otherwise unseen the artist both validates and champions the experiences of those suffering from invisible illnesses. “My paintings show what I ... More

Carol Burnett leading campaign to rename theater for Hal Prince
NEW YORK, NY.- Carol Burnett doesn’t own a Broadway theater. But she does have a long resume, a lot of friends and fans, and an Instagram account. And now she is hoping to use what influence she has to persuade Broadway's bigwigs to rename a theater after the legendary director and producer Hal Prince. Burnett, speaking in a telephone interview, said that last week’s announcement of the impending closing of “The Phantom of the Opera,” which Prince directed and is the longest-running show in Broadway history, prompted her unexpected activism. She said she has come to believe that the Majestic Theater, which has housed “Phantom” for the entire 35 years of its run, should bear Prince’s name. “Hal not only had the longest-running show, but he had 21 Tony Awards, and now that ‘Phantom’ is closing, what a great ...

Immersive art experience The Awakening opens at the Honolulu Museum of Art
HONOLULU.- Hawai’i's deep connection to pua—both endemic and imported flowers—will be celebrated in a year-long art installation that will transform two Honolulu Museum of Art galleries into immersive floral experiences starting Sept. 22, 2022. The Awakening marks the debut of renowned British artist Rebecca Louise Law in Hawai’i. Law has garnered international acclaim for her elegant and immersive installations of strung flowers, leaves, shells and other organic materials. The artist says she strives to give each hanging blossom in her massive floral assemblages as much value as a drop of paint, but with one significant difference—the viewer is invited to walk through her “canvases” and lose themselves in her hanging gardens. The installation, on view through Sept. 10, 2023, will reflect the region's unique eco-system and landscape, ... More

YINKA ILORI: PARABLES FOR HAPPINESS (15 September 2022 until 25 June 2023) showcases key elements of Ilori’s vibrant aesthetic, which throughout his career have been drawn from a mix of cultures that came together in the north London diaspora community where he grew up. The display highlights some of the most important aspects of Ilori’s work – such as his billboard graphics that promote joy – and places them beside key influences, including Nigerian textiles. These African fabrics of his childhood are the foundation ... More
