Priceless historical Dutch artefacts get new lease of life

Site administrator Wim Hoeben shows paintings from the collection of Paleis Het Loo during the preview in the Collection Center Netherlands in Amersfoort, on September 7, 2021. About half a million objects are kept in the center from four national collections, namely those of the Rijksmuseum, the Dutch Open Air Museum, Paleis Het Loo and the Cultural Heritage Agency.

AMERSFOORT (AFP).- Prized paintings, an ornate throne and a barrel organ that survived the great 1953 flood are some of the thousands of artefacts plucked from obscurity to be showcased in a new Dutch 'physical memory' centre. Dutch culture minister Ingrid van Engelshoven will on Monday unveil the new Netherlands Collection Centre (CC NL), a state-of-the-art, tailor-made building housing a myriad of objects which previously gathered dust in storages at four of the country's most influential museums and institutions. While not a museum, the combined collection will be available on appointment for people expressing a specific interest or for research purposes. The CC NL "brings to light thrilling collections that were previously hidden from view," said Taco Dibbits, director of Amsterdam's famous Rijksmuseum where some of the artefacts were previously stored. "Combining the collections means that royal carriages now stand alongside farm carts. This gives rise to a more ... More

ROME (AFP).- Italian authorities on Friday said they had seized 500 works of art suspected of being Francis Bacon counterfeits, along with cash and other valuables worth around three million euros. Five people have been charged with criminal conspiracy to "authenticate and circulate fake works of art" and "fraud and money laundering", according to an official statement. The main suspect is a collector from Bologna, according to media reports. He had been the subject of two different investigations since 2018, the statement said. Police launched the first after discovering "numerous works of contemporary art... including two drawings (purporting to be) signed by Francis Bacon, one of the most famous artists of the 20th century" at the man's home. The second investigation was opened by the tax authorities, which found "financial flows with foreign countries... incompatible with his legal sources of income", the statement said. Francis Bacon (1909-1992) ... More

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Hauser & Wirth, the gallery that has represented the estate of Philip Guston since 2015, has leapt unto the breach. In lieu of “Philip Guston Now,” the enormous, widely anticipated retrospective set to tour to four museums on both sides of the Atlantic that was abruptly postponed last September, Hauser & Wirth has mounted a powerful exhibition of 18 of the late paintings that are the crowning achievement of abstract expressionism’s greatest apostate. The new show, “Philip Guston, 1969-1979” — organized with cooperation from the Guston Foundation — is divided between two galleries: six paintings from 1969-70 featuring the white-hooded creatures that recall the Ku Klux Klan, and partly caused the postponement; ...

GENEVA (AFP).- Two splendid diamond bracelets that belonged to French queen Marie-Antoinette will go under the hammer in Geneva later this year, the auction house Christie's said Wednesday. The bracelets, coated with 112 diamonds in total, will be sold together and are estimated to fetch between $2-4 million when they go under the hammer on November 9. That estimate "includes not only the intrinsic value of the diamonds, but also the possibility to wear jewellery that was once worn by the famous queen Marie-Antoinette," Christie's jewellery specialist Marie-Cecile Cisamolo told AFP.

Taliban takeover sparks fear for Afghanistan's heritage   New sculptures by Thomas Houseago and posthumously cast bronze sculptures by Auguste Rodin on view at Gagosian   Wim Wenders opens 9/11 photos exhibition in London

by Marine Pennetier


ISLAMABAD (AFP).- Bamiyan's cultural centre should have been completed last month, showcasing the remarkable heritage of a site that Afghanistan's Taliban desecrated two decades ago by dynamiting ancient statues of Buddha. But the red carpet celebrations will have to wait. After the Taliban swept triumphantly into the capital Kabul, everything was put on hold. "Everything is suspended," said Philippe Delanghe, from UNESCO, the UN's cultural agency, who said they are awaiting the decisions of the new regime. Afghanistan once stood on the legendary Silk Road trade route, a crossroads of ancient civilisations. Now in the hands of the hardline Islamist Taliban, there are fears its heritage is at risk. In March 2001, the Taliban spent weeks using dynamite and artillery to blow up two giant 1,500-year old statues of Buddha, carved into a cliff at Bamiyan, some 175 kilometres (78 miles) west of Kabul. Many ... More

LONDON.- Gagosian is presenting new sculptures by Thomas Houseago and posthumously cast bronze sculptures by Auguste Rodin, selected in collaboration with the Musée Rodin in Paris. This is the gallery’s second joint project with the museum, the first being Rodin - Sugimoto at Gagosian Paris in 2011. On the occasion of the exhibition, Rodin’s sculpture Monument à Whistler – Muse nue, bras coupés (Monument to Whistler – Nude Muse, without Arms, 1908) was unveiled in Berkeley Square on September 7, 2021, and will remain on view until March 2022. Houseago | Rodin juxtaposes two artists separated by more than a century who share a fascination with the human body’s physical and emotional dynamism. A suite of bronzes by Rodin is set in dialogue with Houseago’s sculptures cast in bronze, zinc, and brass. Rodin’s ability to suggest warmth, movement, and pathos in sculpture has long captivated Houseago, whose own rug ... More
 

German filmmaker Wim Wenders poses during a photocall for ‘Wim Wenders: Photographing Ground Zero’ exhibition at the Imperial War Museums (IWM) in London on September 10, 2021. Tolga Akmen / AFP.

LONDON (AFP).- Legendary German film-maker Wim Wenders on Friday opened an exhibition in London of his photographs capturing the devastation wrought by the 9/11 attacks, which he hopes also convey "surreal beauty". The showcase -- "Wim Wenders: Photographing Ground Zero", at the Imperial War Museum -- presents large-scale images of the apocalyptic scenes shot by the veteran director less than two months after the attacks. The haunting photos show the still-smoking ruins of the collapsed World Trade Center towers, as workers cleared the site in November 2001. "I had wanted the place to somehow tell me something, to give me a message," Wenders said at the launch of the exhibition in the British capital. He recalled rays of sunshine filtering through the gigantic skeletons of the towers, amid the smouldering ruins and thick layers of ash carpeting the ground. "A surreal beauty appeared and I took it as a great sign of hope that there was something beautiful emerging," ... More


Search for time capsule at General Lee statue comes up empty   An urban archive was lost on 9/11. This agency is trying to rebuild it.   UK's last cassette shop reels in nostalgic music lovers


Workers lift the upper part of the statue at the Robert E. Lee Memorial during a removal September 8, 2021 in Richmond, Virginia.

WASHINGTON (AFP).- Where is it? Did it even exist? A search has come up empty for a time capsule that was believed to have been buried in the pedestal of the statue of a Confederate general taken down this week. The bronze statue of General Robert E. Lee, who commanded the Army of Northern Virginia during the Civil War, was removed on Wednesday in Richmond, the Virginia city that was the capital of the South during the bloody 1861-65 conflict. Unveiled in 1890, the towering figure of Lee mounted on a horse is among hundreds of Confederate monuments in the United States that are widely considered symbols of racism. Once the sculpture was carted away in pieces, work crews began a search of the 40-foot-tall (12-meter) granite pedestal for a time capsule believed to be hidden in a cornerstone of the ... More
 

Bridge painters apply Vaseline to their faces while working on the George Washington Bridge, spanning the Hudson River by New York City. Port Authority of New York and New Jersey via The New York Times.

by Winnie Hu


NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- A big brass model of the tunneling machine that carved out the Holland Tunnel was displayed in the engineering department. Thick binders with years of detailed reports on the region’s key infrastructure operations, including Kennedy and LaGuardia airports and the midtown Manhattan bus terminal, were kept in the executive office. And tucked away in the basement were thousands of original glass slides showing the early 1900s rail work that later became part of the PATH train system that carries New Jersey commuters under the Hudson River to Manhattan. All were pieces of the rich history of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the sprawling bistate transportation and infrastructure agency that built the World Trade Center and was headquartered in the north tower. All were destroyed in the Sept. 11 terror attacks. Now the Port Authority has begun ... More

by Imran Marashli


MANCHESTER (AFP).- Tucked away in a corner of the top floor of an indoor market in Manchester, northwest England, is the last shop in Britain dedicated to selling cassettes. Mars Tapes crams around 1,000 cassettes, a Coca-Cola radio, boom boxes, vintage editions of the Walkman cassette player and other tape-related accessories in a compact retail unit smaller than one of the city's tram carriages. Hits by stars including Elvis Presley, Florence and the Machine, and Lewis Capaldi line its shelves, as classic tracks provide a musical backdrop, taking customers back in time. The shop was set up in 2019 by an eclectic group of people united by a love of music, explained co-founder Giorgio Carbone. Spanish sound engineer Borja Regueira, 28, and his girlfriend Moira Lorenzo, 27, initially proposed starting a cassette-only shop. Italian Carbone, 30, and 28-year-old journalist and musician Alex Tadros supported the idea and merged the store into the group's record label. ... More



Pinball museum will auction 1,700 arcade games after closing its doors   Still independent, and still exceptional   Christie's announces 'Image World: Property from a Private American Collection'


The Museum of Pinball in Banning, Calif., is closing because of financial difficulties, augmented by the pandemic. Its collection could be worth as much as $7 million.

by Neil Vigdor


NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Inside an unremarkable warehouse near Palm Springs, California, hundreds of pinball machines once beckoned arcade game aficionados from far and wide, their blinking lights and coin slots a throwback to a time long before Xbox. But then came the coronavirus pandemic, and the game, one that the museum’s owner said was already a losing proposition because of the economic climate and the cost of real estate and insurance, was over. No flippers could keep the ball in play. Now, the Museum of Pinball in Banning, California, one of the largest museums devoted to pinball machines, is about to do something that once might have seemed inconceivable: It will start on Friday to auction off more than 1,700 arcade games. The auction will be conducted both online and at the museum itself, where in 2015 a Guinness World Record was set for the most people ... More

NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Coming up in the ’90s, “independent” (often shortened to “indie”) signaled culture that was maverick, authentic and relatively low budget. It meant movies that weren’t Hollywood-blockbuster types and music not released on corporate record labels. And while art didn’t necessarily follow the same ethos, or economic model, the Independent Art Fair, founded by fellow Gen-Xers Elizabeth Dee and Matthew Higgs, kind of felt like it did. This year, its 12th, is no exception. Still keeping an eye out for overlooked and underrepresented galleries and artists, the Independent is featuring 43 galleries and approximately 100 artists, with lots of women, nonwhite and a few self-taught artists. The quality of the work is exceptional and ranges from painters right out of art school to artists long known to collectors ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s announces IMAGE WORLD: Property from a Private American Collection will be offered in the 21st Century Evening sale and the Post-War and Contemporary Art Day sale in early November. Taking inspiration from the 1989 Whitney Museum of American Art exhibition on the Picture Generation titled “Image World: Art and Media Culture,” a groundbreaking show that explored how artists engaged with mass-media and culture in their practice, the collection features many of those artists such as Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger and Richard Prince, as well as works by Christopher Wool and Elizabeth Peyton. Christie’s will tour highlights of the IMAGE WORLD collection at the Southampton pop-up exhibition space from 3-12 September, as well as Hong Kong (7-12 October), London (9-16 October) and Los Angeles (20-23 October). Twenty-nine works will be offered across the November evening and day sales, with additional works in ... More

As Broadway returns, one play channels the emotions of 9/11
NEW YORK (AFP).- Broadway is back after an 18-month coronavirus shutdown, and for the actors of "Come from Away" there is added resonance: the show about 9/11 returns as New York marks 20 years since the attacks. "I think it's sort of the perfect show for this moment because it emphasizes our shared humanity," Paul Whitty, one of the musical's actors, told AFP during a recent rehearsal. "Come from Away" first came to Broadway in 2017 -- but its last performance was in March 2020, when Covid-19 brought New York City to an abrupt halt. Some actors found themselves having to find other sources of income and a way to stay in shape and keep their passion for performing intact, all while locked down at home. But Broadway, which generated around $33 million in sales per week before the pandemic across 31 shows, is gradually reopening throughout ... More

Elizabeth McCann, Broadway producer with a formidable track record, dies at 90
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Elizabeth McCann, a theater producer known for what one journalist called her “steel and wit” and who in a dizzying four-decade career won nine Tony Awards, many of them as half of McCann & Nugent Productions, and gave New York audiences more than 60 Broadway productions, including such hits as “Equus,” “Amadeus” and “Les Liaisons Dangereuses,” died Wednesday in the Bronx. She was 90. Her death, in a hospital, was announced by her longtime associate and friend Kristen Luciani, who said McCann had cancer. McCann & Nugent, which McCann formed in 1976 with Nelle Nugent, had a remarkable five-year winning streak, taking the Tony for either best play or best revival every year from 1978 to 1982. The first was for “Dracula,” a sexy variation on the classic vampire story; the rest were for dramas ... More

Overlooked no more: Sinn Sisamouth, 'king' of Cambodian pop music
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Before singer-songwriter Sinn Sisamouth disappeared, he had become a fixture on radio programs and in nightclubs in Cambodia and beyond. For more than two decades, from the 1950s until the mid-’70s, fans praised his smooth voice and evocative lyrics about love and the Cambodian landscape. He and his bandmates — most notably, singer Ros Serey Sothea — stood out for their versatile repertoire of jazz, rock ’n’ roll and popular Khmer ballads, among other styles. Sometimes they would use the melody of a Western song — the Beatles’ “Hey Jude,” for example — while adding orchestration and writing original Khmer lyrics for it. They played a major role in defining the sound of Cambodia’s popular music industry, with Sinn Sisamouth emerging as one of the country’s most revered stars. Then, in 1975, ... More

Review: In 'What Happened?,' a questioning farewell to Rhinebeck
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Kate, a woman in her late 60s, sits alone at a weather-beaten table, the clutter of a cauliflower lasagna mostly cleared and her dinner companions now out for the evening. Together, they have spent most of the last two hours talking about Rose, Kate’s wife, who six months earlier, while dying of ovarian cancer, was killed by COVID-19 instead. After all that reminiscing, letter-reading and even dancing — Rose was a modern dance choreographer — what does Kate do? Nothing. She sits, rises, walks slowly about the kitchen. And yet for a long minute or two of silence, you see on her face all the things she’s feeling, or really, all the things she is: grieving yet resolute, prickly yet proud. This is high-wire acting at its most subtly breathtaking, without even the wire of plot to hold it up. If “What Happened?: The Michaels ... More

Sunil Perera, outspoken king of Sri Lankan baila music, is dead at 68
COLOMBO (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- In the end, it was only appropriate that Sunil Perera, who had entertained generations of Sri Lankans on the radio and on the dance floor with his distinctive, Latin-fused tunes, would go out singing. On his deathbed at a hospital in the capital city of Colombo, Perera had asked for a guitar, which he wasn’t provided. So he turned to what couldn’t be denied. “The doctor told me that the day before he died, he was singing and entertaining everyone there,” said Piyal Perera, Sunil’s brother and bandmate. Perera died Monday at the Nawaloka hospital in Colombo, his brother said. He was 68. While the cause of death was not clear, Perera had been recovering from COVID-19 when he was rushed into intensive care, Piyal Perera said. Few have made such a large impact on Sri Lanka’s cultural and entertainment scene as Perera ... More

How a TV ad enticed Broadway crowds right after 9/11
NEW YORK (NYT NEWS SERVICE).- Following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Broadway suspended performances for just two days, reopening on Sept. 13, 2001. But audiences were hesitant to return, and many shows performed to near-empty houses for weeks. To encourage attendance, the theater’s brightest stars — many in costume — gathered in a mostly deserted Times Square on Sept. 28 to perform the John Kander and Fred Ebb song “New York, New York.” (A studio recording session was held the day before to capture audio). Bookended by two of Broadway’s best-known voices, Bernadette Peters and Nathan Lane, the performance had the Phantom rubbing shoulders with the Beast, while “Lion King” puppets bobbed overhead. Brian Stokes Mitchell and Brooke Shields were there; so were the preteen urchins from “Les ... More

'Dear Evan Hansen' brings red carpet glamor back to Toronto film festival
TORONTO (AFP).- Julianne Moore led the stars onto the first Toronto film festival red carpet in two years Thursday, as the movie adaptation of Broadway smash hit "Dear Evan Hansen" finally reopened North America's biggest movie gathering. The musical film about a teen battling isolation and loneliness drew audiences back in a city just recently emerging from one of the world's longest Covid-19 lockdowns, which forced last year's edition to take place almost entirely online. "It's a very big moment -- I love this festival," Moore, who plays the student's mother in the film, told AFP. "I felt so lucky to be working on something that was so important and so much about the human condition at a time when people were really struggling," she said. The movie follows Evan, a teenager with social anxiety whose life is turned upside-down after a classmate ... More

Alain Delon leads France's final farewell for Belmondo
PARIS (AFP).- An adoring French public gave actor Jean-Paul Belmondo a final farewell on Friday, with fellow film icon Alain Delon the most prominent of the celebrity funeral guests. Belmondo's burial in the Saint-Germain-des-Pres church in Paris's Latin Quarter came a day after thousands turned out to honour the actor who died this week aged 88 at an official ceremony led by President Emmanuel Macron. Friday's funeral was a more intimate affair, bringing together Belmondo's family, friends and film celebrities. Among them was 85-year-old Delon, who like his friend Belmondo was the face of French New Wave cinema in the 1960s and 70s. Delon, who had been absent from the week's official ceremonies, arrived at the church smiling and holding a single crutch, as a crowd of onlookers applauded him and chanted his first name. Many other cinema ... More

Kamel Mennour opens an exhibition of works by pascALEjandro
PARIS.- Kamel Mennour is presenting "Alchemichal Androgynous", an exhibition specially dedicated to the work of pascALEjandro. For the last fifteen years, Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky and Alejandro Jodorowsky have been creating a joint body of work, a ‘spiritual child’ whose makers’ name is a fusion of their own.

Christie's to offer an important group of works assembled by a French collector
PARIS.- Christie's will present the sale of an important group of works assembled by a French collector on the 13 and 15 of October between the salerooms in Paris and London.

It also reflects a strong appetite for French artists, including Philippe Cognée, Olivier Debré, Gérard Garouste, Gilles Aillaud, Richard Texier and Maurice Estève. Estimated between 9 and 13 million ... More

Patsy Krebs: 1990s "Interlocking" paintings of rectangular shapes in first solo at David Richard Gallery, NYC
NEW YORK, NY.- David Richard Gallery is presenting Patsy Krebs, Interlocking Series: Paintings from 1990 to 1995 in her first solo exhibition with the gallery and her first solo show in New York since 2004. The compositions are comprised of two square or rectangular geometric forms that overlap and appear as though they are interlocking and mostly all in the horizontal orientation. There is one new painting from 2021 that is differentiated by also including 24 ct gold leaf. The spatial depth and sense of volume is achieved by using Flashe paint on canvas. According to the artist, “the velvety and luminous Flashe surface is dead flat (matte) - it has absolutely no reflective capacity, which serves to liberate the color, which just hangs in the air, vis a vis the viewer, so the forms hover, connect, disconnect.”1 Since the surface is matte, the illusory aspect of the geometric ...
