Carsten Höller’s “Mirror Carousel”

The wonderful art critic Roberta Smith has written a helpful, informative and interesting article entitled “For Spectacle’s Sake, Museums Get Specific” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times in which she offers up her anticipated museum and gallery show Top Picks for the Autumn/Winter 2011 season in New York.  A wonderful list it is, as well, including, of course, de Kooning at MoMA, but also Maurizio Cattalan at the Guggenheim, Carsten Höller at the New Museum, Sherrie Levine at the Whitney, Diego Rivera at MoMA and, among others, at the Studio Museum in Harlem, “The Bearden Project”, celebrating the centennial of the birth of the great American Cubo-collagist Romare Bearden.  Check the dates and get your calendars in order, there’s some wonderful and inspiring art to see.

See our previous posts on de Kooning at MoMA, here and here, and our previous post on Romare Bearden, here.

Carl Andre – “A thing is a hole in a thing it is not.” – Grand Minimalism

Posted by the editors on Monday, 18 July 2011

‘War and Rumours of War’ (2002) by Carl Andre

“For Carl Andre, Less is Still Less”, by Randy Kennedy in the Art & Design section of The New York Times, looks at the rigorously minimal, demanding, and wonderful work (and, glancingly, at the life) of the great minimalist artist Carl Andre, in the context of the publication of a maximalist survey of his 50-year career by Phaidon (“Carl Andre: Things in Their Elements” (Phaidon Press)) and an upcoming (2013) retrospective of his work at Dia:Beacon. We have all (one hopes) had, over the decades, the good luck to appreciate Mr. Andre’s work (perhaps even at the, frankly iconic, and always dynamic, Paula Cooper Gallery in NYC); though many like Judd‘s work (we love it), and some think of Serra (we love Serra’s work as well), Carl Andre is certainly what may be called a minimalist’s minimalist: Maximal. Magnificent.  Material.

Very good slide show, here, with images from the excellent new book published by Phaidon, “Carl Andre: Things in Their Elements”.

Inspiring interactive multimedia look, entitled “His horizontal life”, at three of Carl Andre’s pieces with commentary by Randy Kennedy, here.

Anish Kapoor – Leviathan at Monumenta – Photos & Video

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 14 May 2011

Leviathan (2011) by Anish Kapoor

Anish Kapoor’s truly monumental installation Leviathan, currently at Monumenta at the Grand Palais in Paris, is shown in all its beauty (well, perhaps not all) in a post published by the great design blog Designboom, entitled, in Designboom’s own pithy manner, “anish kapoor: monumenta 2011 – leviathan“.  A true feast for the eyes, with absolutely wonderful photos, and fascinating comments by Kapoor himself, in video, below.  All thanks to Designboom.  Bravo and merci!!

Anish Kapoor – Monumental in Paris

Posted by the editors on Wednesday, 4 May 2011

Memory” by Anish Kapoor, at the Deutsche Guggenheim (2009)

Natasha Garnett has written “Anish in Paris”, in the WSJ Magazine section of The Wall Street Journal, an excellent article and interview with the renowned, ambitious and charming Indian-born, British artist Anish Kapoor, looking at his work, his thoughts about art and fame, and his upcoming monumental work, Leviathan“, for Monumenta in Paris:  An enormous inflatable “balloon”, a major departure for the artist, who has worked almost exclusively with solid, predominantly metal, constructions, that will fill the vast, light-filled nef of the Grand Palais in Paris from 11 May- 23 June 2011.
