In a film camera resurgence, negatives are left languishing

But some new photographers are leaving something behind: the tea-colored originals that determine the life of pictures. (Maansi Srivastava/The New York Times)

NEW YORK, NY.- Silvio Cohen has been doing this for years. Soak, rinse, soak, dry, repeat. Thirty-five millimeter, medium format, old cameras, new film. Analog work in a digital age. “When I tell my friends that we still do developing, they laugh,” Cohen said. “It’s a different feel. The finish is a different finish.” Cohen works at 42nd Street Photo, one of a handful of legacy shops in New York City that still develop film. They have been at it for a century, riding the medium’s ebbs and flows — from film’s first plummet in the 2000s, to its resilient return in ... More

The Best Photos of the Day

Can big art make it in Las Vegas? Urs Fischer weighs in.   Bartha_contemporary presents the group exhibition RED   Sigmund Rolat, who used his wealth to memorialize Polish Jews, dies at 93

“There’s more to see here that’s interesting than some other newer places,” said Fischer. “It’s artificial, but in a good way.” (Cody Cobb/The New York Times)

LAS VEGAS, NEV.- Swiss artist Urs Fischer suggests beginning our day together with coffee in the Village. Not New York City’s Greenwich Village — on the edge of which he lived from the mid-aughts until several years ago, commuting to giant studios in Brooklyn and Queens — though if you squint, there’s a resemblance to its earlier era. ...

Friedman is nicknamed “The Sun” by some executives: he gives off a warm glow on good days and burns you on bad ones. (Cayce Clifford/The New York Times)

NEW YORK, NY.- Gary Friedman hates meetings. A 66-year-old with apparently limitless energy and a perpetual tan, Friedman is the CEO of RH, one of the country’s largest high-end furniture sellers, and he never holds meetings. Instead, he convenes ... More

The University of Arts main building in Philadelphia, June 2, 2024. (Hannah Yoon/The New York Times)

NEW YORK, NY.- The Pennsylvania attorney general’s office and state lawmakers said Friday that they were reviewing the abrupt closure of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, which blindsided students and faculty members. “We are very concerned by the sudden closure of the University of the Arts,” said Brett Hambright, ...

Shoppers browse the selection of English-language books at Scheltema, a bookstore in Amsterdam, on June 1, 2024. (Ilvy Njiokiktjien/The New York Times)

AMSTERDAM.- When Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan was in the Netherlands a few years ago promoting her most recent novel, “The Candy House,” she noticed something unexpected. Most of the people who asked her to sign books at author events were not presenting her with copies in Dutch. “The majority of the books I was selling were in English,” Egan said. Her ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Los Angeles-based painter Jennifer Rochlin embarked upon a shift toward three-dimensionality sixteen years ago when an unexpected teaching opportunity brought her into close contact with clay for the first time. Enchanted by its tactility and unpredictability, she discovered in the material a new channel for expression. ... More

Lucy Yu in her Manhattan bookstore, Yu & Me Books, on Mulberry Street on Aug. 10, 2023, weeks after a fire destroyed it. (Hiroko Masuike/The New York Times).

NEW YORK, NY.- Lucy Yu wasn’t sure if she had smoke in her lungs or was having an anxiety attack. She needed fresh air. Five days earlier, on the Fourth of July, she had raced out of her bookstore in Manhattan’s Chinatown as it filled with smoke. A fire had broken out in an upstairs apartment, threatening to destroy all she had built. Now Yu was back and had to face it. She had assembled ... More

Francis Ford Coppola in Napa, Calif., Nov. 20, 2020. (Mark Mahaney/The New York Times).

CANNES.- The first time that Francis Ford Coppola had a movie in competition at the Cannes Film Festival was in 1967.

Coppola made it while he was in film school at the University of California, Los Angeles, and it became his master’s thesis ... More

Gone in a 6-year flash: Farewell to the New York Phil's maestro
NEW YORK, NY.- Jaap, we hardly knew ye. On Thursday at David Geffen Hall, Jaap van Zweden, the music director of the New York Philharmonic, conducted a lean, driven rendition of Mahler’s sprawling Second Symphony. After two more performances through Saturday, he will leave his Lincoln Center podium, a mere six years after stepping onto it. No Philharmonic artistic leader has been less present in front of its players and audience since Mahler himself, who died two years into his tenure, in 1911. There was barely enough time to meet van Zweden, let alone get a full sense of him, as man or maestro. He had no signature initiatives, and his choice of works revealed little personal stamp. His interpretations of the classics only occasionally relaxed from a tense punchiness. And though I wasn’t always displeased after hearing him lead ... More

Jeannette Charles, who doubled for the Queen, is dead at 96
NEW YORK, NY.- Jeannette Charles, who transformed a portrait rejected by a royal art show into a career as a Queen Elizabeth II look-alike in movies and on television, died on Tuesday in Great Baddow, England. She was 96 — the same age as the monarch when she died two years ago. “Mum was a real character and a force of nature,” her daughter, Carol Christophi, said in announcing Charles’ death, in a hospice. “She had an amazing life.” Charles first acted in small repertory roles in regional theater. But her uncanny resemblance to the queen distracted audiences, who giggled and guffawed when she appeared onstage. That led to her playing the queen professionally — and for laughs — launching her on a career that lasted decades (until she retired in 2014 because of arthritis), if not quite as long as Elizabeth’s. ...

CANBERRA.- The National Gallery of Australia announces the first Australian exhibition dedicated to legendary figures of the Bauhaus art movement – Anni and Josef Albers.

Laura Jones wins Archibald Prize 2024 for portrait of Tim Winton
SYDNEY.- Kurrajong-based artist Laura Jones has won the Archibald Prize 2024 and $100,000 for her portrait of Australian author and conservationist Tim Winton. Jones’ win marks the 14th time the Archibald Prize has been awarded to a woman and she becomes the 12th woman to win since its inception in 1921. A four-time Archibald Prize finalist, Jones said her heart was racing when Art Gallery of New South Wales director Michael Brand phoned this morning to deliver the news that she had won this year’s Archibald Prize. ‘There is an array of brilliant finalists for the 2024 Archibald Prize. I am shocked and humbled to be chosen as the winner. This is a life-changing moment for me. I would like to thank my sitter, Tim Winton. Tim is one of the world’s greatest novelists and also a tireless advocate for the environment. He is an inspiration ... More

The exhibition presents a vast collection of pieces created by Blunk, allowing viewers to grasp his unique and unconventional approach: whether creating works of art or everyday objects, his work - in constant dialogue with his environment - is a powerful plea, placing creation at the heart of everyday life. Blunk ... More

HOUSTON, TX.- The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston will present the nationally touring Raqib Shaw: Ballads of East and West, featuring intricate paintings of dream-like realms that deftly unite Eastern and Western artistic traditions. Organized by the Frist Art Museum, Nashville, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, it will be on view at the MFAH from June 9 through September 2, 2024.

Shaw relocated to New Delhi in 1992 and was immersed in his family’s business of selling jewelry, textiles, and carpets. On a trip to London in 1993, he fell in love with the Italian and Northern Renaissance ... More

Patricia Fleming Gallery opens 'Echoes' by Sooun Kim
GLASGOW.- In the exhibition Echoes, Kim’s visual language is seen in his paintings and beautifully crafted films.

Thomas Dane Gallery presents a group of new works by Patricia Leite
LONDON.- Like many Brazilian children, Patricia Leite (b.1955, Belo Horizonte, Brazil) was raised on the legends of the Tupi-Guarani indigenous people. These stories are embedded in the landscapes of Brazil, where the gods reside in the sun, the moon, the forest, the sea, the stars and the mountains, transforming these features of the landscape into lead characters to which a young Leite would look to shape her own world and imagination. For Paisagem de Lenda (Landscape of Legend), her second exhibition at Thomas Dane Gallery in London, Leite presents a group of new paintings and a floor-based tapestry that invoke these indigenous stories, deeply linked to the landscape and ecology of Brazil. As these natural environments are being eroded by climate change, industry, extraction and the destructive policies of neglectful governments, ... More

'No excuses anymore' for gender inequality in classical music
VIENNA.- In the world of classical music, progress toward gender parity can seem incredibly slow. Recent big wins have included women of the New York Philharmonic being allowed to perform in pants, and the appointment of the second woman — ever — to a music director role at one of the 25 largest orchestras in the United States. The Berlin Philharmonic, one of the world’s great ensembles, hired its first female concertmaster last year. Frustrated by the stubborn gender imbalances in classical music, the directors of the Wiener Festwochen, a prestigious arts festival in Vienna, have this year formed the “Academy Second Modernism,” an initiative that will showcase works by 50 female and nonbinary composers over five years. This season, less than 8% of approximately 16,000 ... More

Latvian National Museum of Art opens Katrīna Neiburga's solo exhibition "Sologamy"
RIGA.- Sologamy, a solo exhibition of Katrīna Neiburga, is on view in the Cupola Hall of the main building of the Latvian National Museum of Art in Riga (Jaņa Rozentāla laukums 1) from 8 June to 4 August 2024. In December 1993, the relatives and closest friends of Linda Baker from America received a peculiar invitation to a wedding with a non-existent groom. In a ceremony that took place on her 40th birthday in the presence of 75 guests and 7 bridesmaids, Linda got married to herself, stressing that this act was driven neither by regret nor feminism: “It’s about doing things for yourself and not waiting around for someone else to make it happen.”* In nuptial history of the world, Linda Baker’s wedding is mentioned as one of the first cases of sologamy in contemporary society. In 2003, this example was followed by Jennifer Hoes, while ... More

Luca Giordano Exhibition at Robert Simon Fine Art

On a day like today, American painter Jacob Lawrence died
June 09, 2000. Jacob Lawrence (September 7, 1917 - June 9, 2000) was an African-American painter known for his portrayal of African-American life. As well as a painter, storyteller, and interpreter, he was an educator. Lawrence referred to his style as "dynamic cubism", though by his own account the primary influence was not so much French art as the shapes and colors of Harlem. In this image: Jacob Lawrence, “Forward Together,” silkscreen on paper, 25.5” x 40.125”, 1997. © 2018 The Jacob and Gwendolyn Knight Lawrence Foundation, Seattle/Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York.
