Emilie Trice has written “Berlin Gallery Spotlights Ai Weiwei, Detained Chinese Artist”, a short article in the Travel section of The New York Times, looking at the Chinese dissent artist, now being held by Chinese authorities, and two of his works on show at the Neugerriemschneider gallery (Linienstrasse 155; 49-30-2887-7277) in Berlin through June 2011.

Ellsworth Kelly – Reliefs 2009-2010 & Black & White Drawings – His Own Richest Source of Inspiration

Posted by the editors on Friday, 8 April 2011

Holland Cotter has written a short, clear article in the Art & Design section of The New York Times, entitled “Ellsworth Kelly” reviewing the exhibitions “Ellsworth Kelly – Reliefs 2009-2010” at the Matthew Marks Gallery, 522 West 22nd Street and 523 West 24th St., NYC and “Ellsworth Kelly – Black and White Drawings”, at the Matthew Marks Gallery, 526 West 22nd St., NYC (through 16 April 2011).  Cotter’s observations, precise, direct, are always welcome:  “Mr. Kelly give us nothing startlingly different from what he’s given us before, though the show itself does. By placing past and present more or less side by side, we get a chance to see where the artist, now 87, came from and is still coming from, and where he’s going.”

The Matthew Marks Gallery offers a compelling view of the exhibition on its site: Matthew Marks Gallery, including a video of the installation.

Visit the artist’s website here.  And a page of Google images, here.

World’s Leading Prize in Photography and Sustainability – The Prix Pictet

Posted by the editors on Monday, 21 February 2011

The work of the photographers shortlisted for the Prix Pictet, though diverse, is impressive indeed.  If you’re in Paris between 17 March and 16 April 2011 it is certainly recommended that you stop by the exhibition of photos by this year’s shortlisted photographers at the Passage de Retz Gallery in the Marais (9 rue Charlot, 75003, +33.1.48.04.37.99).

Here is a description of the Prix Pictet from the official site:

Launched in 2008 by the Geneva-based private bank Pictet & Cie, the Prix Pictet has rapidly established itself as the world’s leading prize in photography and sustainability. It has a unique mandate – to use the power of photography to communicate vital messages to a global audience. The goal is to uncover art of the highest order, applied to confront the pressing social and environmental challenges of the new millennium.

The theme of the first Prix Pictet was Water, and the second Prix Pictet was Earth. The third cycle of the award will focus on the theme of Growth. At once a blessing and a curse, Growth, in all its forms, presents one of the great conundrums facing humanity in the early decades of the twenty-first century.

Official site of the Prix Pictet.

Here is a link to an article entitled “Prix Pictet 2011 Exhibition” in the always interesting design blog Designboom.

Roberta Smith has written an interesting review of three exhibitions by younger sculptors, entitled “Creative Debate Among Sculptors, Not Too Loud” in the Art Review section of the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at the current shows by Johannes VanDerBeek (“Another Time Man”, through June 12 at Zach Feuer Gallery, 530 West 24th Street, Chelsea, zachfeuer.com), Josephine Meckseper (through June 26 at Elizabeth Dee, 545 West 20th Street, Chelsea, elizabethdeegallery.com), and Siobhan Liddell (“Ordinary Magic”, through Saturday at CRG Gallery, 535 West 22nd Street, Chelsea, crggallery.com).

As usual, Ms Smith’s articulate, sensitive and informed article is well worth reading, and the exhibitions, themselves, are well worth viewing. The article includes a slide show, here.

Marilyn Monroe, Richard Nixon, Audrey Hepburn & Others Jump for Joy – Jumpology For The People

Posted by the editors on Monday, 24 May 2010

Marilyn Monroe & Phillipe Halsman Jump!

One of our favorite arts journalists, Roberta Smith, has written a short, inspiring article entitled “The Joys of Jumpology” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times (online) looking at the “quirky and fun-filled” exhibition, entitled “Philippe Halsman: Jump” (through Friday at the Laurence Miller Gallery, 20 West 57th Street, Manhattan; (212) 397-3930, laurencemillergallery.com), of some of the work of the photographer Philippe Halsman.  The photos are all of greater or lesser known people (Harold Lloyd, Aldous Huxley, Bridget Bardot, those mentioned in the title, and others) following Halsman’s one-word direction, “Jump.”  The results are without a doubt marvelous, even astonishing.

The article includes a wonderful slide show, here.
