Kati Krause has written a very interesting and informative article entitled “Tate Modern Finds Its Match – New director Chris Dercon wants to redefine the role of the public museum”  in the Arts & Entertainment section of The Wall Street Journal (online), looking at the role of contemporary art museums, in general, and, much more specifically, the role of London’s Tate Modern, as seen by its new director, Chris Dercon, formerly of P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York, now MoMA PS1, the Witte de With contemporary art museum in Rotterdam, the Boijmans Van Beuningen, also in Rotterdam and Haus der Kunst in Munich.  Dynamic, active, engaged.

Holland Cotter has written a very interesting article entitled “When Picasso Changed His Tune” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at the exhibition “Picasso: Guitars 1912-1914” at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City (February 13 through June 6; (212) 708-9400; moma.org) and the origins of the Cubist movement.  The exhibition brings together work never seen since leaving Picasso’s studio, rare, privately owned work and work owned by various international art museums to create a truly moving and masterful exhibition.  Cotter is, and we all should be, on cloud nine.

More than simply “a must see”.

Excellent slide show, here.

The Google Art Project – Through an Art Critic’s Eye

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 12 February 2011

The wonderfully perceptive and accomplished art critic Roberta Smith has written an article entitled “The Work of Art in the Age of Google” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at the Google Art Project, Google’s most recent step in Webifying the world.  Art Project offers, via an adaptation of Google’s Street View technology, virtual tours of, at the moment, 17 major international art museums, including, ultra-high definition close-ups of some of the works.  It’s not perfect, but it is really quite amazing, and it does offer the opportunity to art-lovers near or far to spend some quality time quietly contemplating some beautiful work, ranging from Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) to Chris Ofili’s “No Woman, No Cry” at the Tate Modern, and many others.

An absolute must.  It’s that simple.

Last Day for Marina Abramovic at MoMA – “The Artist is Present” to End Monday 31 May 2010 at 5pm

Posted by the editors on Monday, 31 May 2010

Marina Abramovic in the MoMA atrium. In her performance piece “The Artist Is Present,” visitors sit in a chair silently facing her.

Holland Cotter has written an interesting article entitled “700-Hour Silent Opera Reaches Finale at MoMA” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times (online) looking at Marina Abramovic’s 700 hour silent performance entitled “The Artist is Present” at MoMA in New York City.  In fact, Abramovic’s 700 hour silent chair sitting is only one part of the exhibition which includes videos of some of her past performances and, perhaps more disputably, restagings of previous performances using, this time, actors instead of Ms. Abramovic and her one-time partner Uwe Laysiepen.

The article includes a slide show, here, and a video interview with Ms. Abramovic, here.  Daily live feed of Ms. Abramovic’s performance on the official MoMA site, here.  Portraits of the more than 1325 participating visitors (of the reportedly 600,000 who saw the exhibition) on Flickr, here.

MoMA P.S. 1 “Greater New York” Exhibition of Emerging Artists – Energy, Optimism

Posted by the editors on Friday, 28 May 2010

Michael Nagle for The New York Times

David Adamo’s “Untitled (rite of spring)” is made up of baseball bats. Mr. Adamo’s work, like the others in the “Greater New York” show, will change with time; it will darken from foot traffic.

Roberta Smith has written another fine article, entitled “Take Me Out to the Big Show in Queens” in the Art Review section of the Art & Design section of The New York Times (online), offering a perceptive and much appreciated look at the “Greater New York” exhibition (through Oct. 18 at MoMA P.S. 1, 22-25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City; (718) 784-2084, www.ps1.org), the third rendition of a survey of little known and emerging artists working in New York City; it was established in 2000 and is mounted every five years.  As is so often, and marvelously, the case, reading the article is like going to the exhibition with a favorite, smart, charming, perceptive friend who knows an astounding amount about art.  What fun.

The article is accompanied by a slide show, here.
