What's on at "ICP" (International Center of Photography)

ICP is a easy stop very close from Grand Central Station , just in case you're waiting for your train , or arriving early..and wondering what can I do ?

Current Exhibits:September 26–January 6, 2008

This Is War! Robert Capa at Work
This exhibition, focusing on Capa's greatest war reportages, will be drawn from ICP's Robert Capa Archive, the most comprehensive collection of work by one of the greatest photojournalists of the twentieth century. With vintage prints, contact sheets, handwritten observations, letters, magazine layouts, and more, the stories are brought to life and provide insight into how Capa worked.

Gerda Taro
Gerda Taro was a pioneering photojournalist whose brief career consisted almost exclusively of dramatic photographs from the front lines of the Spanish Civil War. Taro worked alongside Robert Capa, her photographic and romantic partner, and the two collaborated closely. While covering the battle of Brunete, Taro was struck by a tank and killed. Taro's photographs are a striking but little-known record of this important moment in the history of war photography. This exhibition will include vintage and modern prints, and magazine layouts from ICP's collection.

Other Weapons: Photography and Print Culture During the Spanish Civil War
The posters of the Spanish Civil War have become the emblematic signs of a national conflict that turned international. Described as "shouts from the wall," the vibrancy of the color and design of the posters, and their messages, signaled for many the powerful role that propaganda played in creating an image of war. Along with the posters, was the publication in Spain of hundreds of magazines. This exhibition, organized by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, shows the diversity and relationships among the original magazines, posters, vintage photographs, and archival documents from Spain and the United States.

Dark Is the Room Where We Sleep: A Project by Francesc Torres
On September 16, 1936, forty-six supporters of Spain's Republican government were killed in the village of Villamayor de los Montes, and buried in an unmarked mass grave. The violent history and legacy of the Spanish Civil War remains buried throughout the country, in metaphorical and concrete ways. In 2004, Francesc Torres joined forces with a forensic anthropology team as they uncovered the grave. Torres photographed them, as well as the local townspeople who became involved in the project.

Evening Sale @ Sotheby's



Save the date for either the preview or the sale;EVENING SALE WILL INCLUDE IMPORTANT WORKS BY PAUL GAUGUIN, VINCENT VAN GOGH, PABLO PICASSO, LYONEL FEININGER, CLAUDE MONET, KEES VAN DONGEN, GEORGES BRAQUE AND JOAN MIRÓ
New York, NY – Sotheby’s fall sales of Impressionist and Modern Art in New York will be held on November 7 & 8, 2007. Among the highlights are masterworks by many of the key artists of the period including a stunning Tahitian scene by Paul Gauguin, one of the greatest landscapes by Vincent van Gogh remaining in private hands, a masterpiece by Franz Marc, and the finest sculpture by Pablo Picasso ever to appear at auction. Prior to the auction, the works will be on view in New York from November 2-7, 2007.

A ce sujet voici l'editorial de ARTAUJOURD"HUI.INFO
Décroissance douce ou brutale ?
Octobre a été le mois des foires de capitales (la FIAC à Paris et Frieze à Londres, comme un remake de match de rugby). Celui qui suit est traditionnellement marqué par de belles enchères impressionnistes et modernes. « En novembre, s’il tonne, l’année sera bonne » dit la sagesse populaire. On s’est tellement habitué à une ascension continue des prix des grands maîtres, qui ont définitivement pris pied au pays des 100 millions $ (Klimt, Pollock , Picasso), que l’on attend avec une certaine indifférence la moisson de l’année. Qui montera sur la première marche du podium ? Picasso avec sa Lampe de 1931 ou Gauguin avec son Te Poipoi, paysage tahitien de 1892 (tous deux chez Sotheby’s New York le 7 novembre) ? Pour le grand public, les nouvelles qui filtrent jusqu’au « 20 heures » ne vont guère au-delà de ce genre de hit-parade. Doit-on lire le résultat de ces enchères comme un indicateur quasi exclusif de la santé du secteur ? Au ris que, s’il n’est pas bon, de pousser certains investisseurs à d’autres arbitrages ? Vers l’orge ? les biocarburants ? le pétrole ? Dans un marché mondialisé et de plus en plus volatile, où l’art est devenu une commodity (marchandise) comme une autre, des réactions en cascade, sur le modèle de la crise du subprime américain, ne sont peut-être plus à exclure.

Gustav Klimt à la Neue Galerie


Publie sur "French Morning News":
La Neue Galerie réunit actuellement 8 peintures et plus de 120 dessins du peintre autrichien Gustav Klimt (1862-1918). C’est la première véritable exposition de l’artiste aux Etats-Unis, car assez peu connu outre Atlantique, il a acquis sa réputation bien après sa mort. Inspiré à la fois par les estampes japonaises et par l’art byzantin, Klimt sort des sentiers battus de l’époque (fin XIXe). Facilement reconnaissables, ses peintures sont d’une grande richesse en détails et en couleurs. Klimt est également connu pour son utilisation de l’or. L’exposition comprend également des documents rares sur le peintre ainsi que de nombreux objets personnels.

Jusqu’au 30 juin 2008, « Gustav Klimt : The Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky collections” à la Neue Galerie, 1048 Fifth Avenue. Tel : 212 628 6200. (La galerie est fermée les mardis et mercredis)

Alice O'keeffe from the "newstatesman"

ABOUT What's going on in London and how to react in front of some conceptual art ...I thought this was a good article:

Conceptual art should be allowed to speak for itself


On the balcony of Tate Modern's Turbine Hall, a group of schoolchildren is staring down at the latest in the gallery's "Unilever Series" of large-scale installations. They would be forgiven for being disappointed after all the fun of the pre vious commissions: the child-friendly helter-skelters constructed for Carsten Höller's Test Site, and Olafur Eliasson's spellbinding sun projection, The Weather Project.

This work isn't nearly so entertaining. Shibboleth, by the Colombian artist Doris Salcedo, has been affectionately nicknamed "Doris's crack". It is simply a long gash in the floor which zigzags 167 metres from the glass entrance door, growing wider and splitting into smaller lightning strikes as it goes, before disappearing beneath the back wall. The schoolchildren gaze at Shibboleth with modest interest, but it is their teacher, a mild-mannered woman in a tweed skirt, who looks most bemused. "I just don't understand why they have done it," she says, almost to herself. "Ruined their lovely floor!"

It is an understandable response, but not exactly what Salcedo had in mind. Launching the installation, she told reporters that Shibboleth represents "borders, the experience of immigrants, the experience of segregation, the experience of racial hatred. It is the experience of a third world person coming into the heart of Europe." Similarly, the information the Tate gives out to visitors informs them: "Salcedo is addressing a long legacy of racism and colonialism that underlies the modern world. A shibboleth is a custom, phrase or use of language that acts as a test of belonging to a particular social group or class. By definition, it is used to exclude those deemed unsuitable to join this group."

Does all this explanation help a viewer to appreciate the work? By the time I entered the Turbine Hall my mind was so cluttered with ready-made "meanings" that it was difficult to admire Shibboleth on its own terms. It is a genuinely powerful spectacle. If it were allowed to speak for itself, it would play subtly into many dif ferent fears and associations. A gaping fissure is an uneasy presence, particularly on such a large scale. It creates a sense of instability and im permanence. The sight of it slashing down the middle of the Turbine Hall is shocking, an apparent violation of space that is as close to hallowed as you get in 21st-century London.

Shibboleth does not necessarily point towards "the experience of racial hatred" or illegal immigration, although perhaps some viewers would - perfectly validly - have understood it in that way. It might just as easily provoke thoughts about other personal, social, economic or cultural divisions: family breakdown, environmental destruction or economic inequality. Conceptual art, at least when it's as good as Shibboleth, is powerful because it works on many different conscious and unconscious levels. Its ambiguity, its openness to interpretation, is also what makes looking at it more enjoyable than, say, reading a polemical essay on race relations.

It is a commonly held view in the art world that the public resists conceptual work because it is difficult to understand. Its reputation for being pretentious and "not as good as painting" would improve, they argue, if it were properly explained. In many exhibitions - the pavilions at the Venice Biennale this year being one example - reams of text, and even books, are handed out to visitors to help them interpret what they see. The curator of Shibboleth, Achim Borchardt-Hume, argues that the Tate has a responsibility as a public institution to offer visitors a "way in". "It is a very difficult balance to strike," he says. "First and foremost, it should be the work that speaks - it is not defined by any one reading. However, with conceptual art, we have found that if people don't understand, their bafflement can lead to alienation."

In fact, the tendency to overexplain is the route of most of conceptual art's public relations difficulties. First, it is patronising, and implies that only experts in the field are capable of comprehending a work's "true" meaning. Second, it places the onus on the public to "understand" art, rather than on artists to produce work that provokes ideas or emotions. If I am not moved by the sight of a glass of water mounted on a gallery wall, or a small animal fashioned out of carpet fluff, is that because I have failed to understand it? Or could it be that the artist has failed to communicate with me?

Most importantly, however, it encourages artists, curators and galleries to come up with pretentious mission statements that are often actively misleading. Shibboleth is not "the experience of a third world person coming to the heart of Europe". It is a crack in the floor. Schoolchildren given that explanation would be quite right to feel confused by it and alienated from the work as a result. If, however, they were simply encouraged to explore how the crack made them feel, they might begin to appreciate the real value of Shibboleth and to understand the unique, mysterious power of an image. In that respect, the teacher's instinctive response was the best her students could have hoped for.

"Shibboleth" is at Tate Modern, London SE1, until 6 April 2008. More details: www.tate.org.uk

WALK in Galleries with Viviane

I receive her email but cannot really recommend her as I never followed 1 of her tours. Check it by yourself
The first stop: "Les Femmes Du Maroc", Lalla Essaydi’s visually arresting, emotionally stunning and socially subversive photographic work of Moroccan women caught in between worlds old and new.

The second stop: The highly personal yet oddly detatched family portaits of William Beckman are masterpieces of restraint—emotion is conjured by its very absence.

The third stop: A decade in the waiting Marc Greenwold’s exhibition is not to be missed:

"Frequently painful in subject matter but fairy-tale-like in atmosphere, unusually small in size yet monumental in their feeling for composition, imbued with a psychoanalytical way of looking at experience and accompanied by the most literary of titles yet driven by the physically painstaking effort of giving every square inch of a painting's surface precisely the same density of texture as every other, Mark Greenwold's pictures are among the most stimulatingly contradictory in contemporary art."
Sanford Schwartz

The forth stop: The award-winning artist John F. Simon will meet us for a private-viewing and discussion on the meaning and methods behind "Winds Across the Inner Sea", his fascinating new exhibition.
WHEN: Tuesday October 23rd and Wednesday October 24th from 11am to 12.45pm
WHERE: Ewynn Houk Gallery
745 Fifth Avenue, 4th floor between 57th and 58th Streets

FEE: 40/walk. Please bring exact change.

GROUP SHOW WINTER 2007.

Save the date for the following event organized by my friend REYNA HENAINE, who is an incredible help for LMNY outings and was really involved in the creation of LMNY.
New York, NY -Reyna Henaine in collaboration with Antena Estudio present the group show exhibition Winter 2007, featuring new work by four figurative contemporary Mexican artists. The exhibition opening reception is on Thursday November 15, 2007 and will remain on view through December 15th (by appointment only).

GROUP SHOW WINTER 2007.
126 W 22nd St. 5N, New York, NY 10011
Opening reception
November 15, 2007 6:00 to 9:00pm
Abaham Jiménez, Andrés Basurto and Escoto- Carrara.
Abraham Jiménez combines classical painting techniques and his own visual vocabulary to generate different types of scenes that are derived from a particular character, in which humor and the absurd manifest themselves in a world of reality and fiction.
Andrés Basurto's work is characterized for the use of specific facial features that express different emotions that are created by the human face. His technique concentrates in close up details that exalt the grotesque and the beauty of his subjects, bringing the observer intimately and emotionally close to the piece.
Federico Escoto and Roberto Carrara better known as Escoto-Carrara, work almost exclusively as a pair. Their work depicts the human figure in order to exalt its feminine qualities. Combining digital and traditional photography with a photo-realistic painting technique they create situations that are set in a timeless atmosphere, dealing with the sacred, the occult, and the ethereal without being intangible.

Le prix Nobel, kesako

Le prix Nobel, kesako ?


Le 10 décembre 1896 s’éteint Alfred Nobel, homme de science appliqué - et accessoirement inventeur de la dynamite. Soucieux de voir progresser la recherche, il choisit de léguer son importante fortune à la création d’une fondation chargée de récompenser chaque année "ceux qui font avancer la recherche ou la société", dans cinq domaines précis : la physique, la chimie, la médecine, la littérature et enfin la paix. C’est ainsi que, depuis 1901, les prix Nobel sont décernés au mois d’octobre par un comité suédois. Celui-ci oeuvre dans la plus grande confidentialité puisque aucune liste de nominés n’est diffusée et que la date de l’annonce de la récompense elle-même n’est connue que quelques jours à l’avance. Les lauréats se voient remettre une médaille en or, un diplôme, et surtout près d’un million d’euros. Cette dotation, prévue pour que les intéressés puissent poursuivre leurs recherches sans être entravés par la pression financière, est parfois discutée. Distinction prestigieuse, le prix Nobel a, depuis sa création, mis en valeur l’action d’hommes et de femmes ayant marqué les esprits, comme André Gide (1947), Martin Luther King (1964), Samuel Beckett (1969), Mère Teresa (1979), le Dalaï Lama (1989) ou encore Pierre-Gilles de Gennes (1991).

Antiquaire Francais tres connu met en vente son stock chez ...


Bernard Steinitz opened his gallery in 1968, and he swiftly became a legend for his extraordinary ability to discover rare and beautiful pieces from around the world. The uniqueness of his eye shows in the easy blending of seemingly diverse objects to build a magical world of texture and colour.

His son Benjamin joined him in 1991 and together they have become legendary for the amazing installations they created with 18th Century boiseries forming a dazzling backdrop for a glittering array of chandeliers, textiles, sculptures, carved consoles and mirrors.

2 reasons for publishing this post:

1)Nurture Art Gallery is a favorite among Galleries in Williamsburg. I mentionned them earlier as we were very well welcome by Benjamin
2) Leah Oates showed recently in Pool Art Fair and among all the artists presents (exception faite de nos amies du Westchester, of course) she is the one we would have awarded the Jury Prize.
SO take a look, this is a good reason to go to Williamsburg.........

Subjects of Power and Devotion

Oct. 12th - Nov 4th, 2007
Reception: Friday, Oct. 12th, 7 - 9 p.m.
Subjects of Power and Devotion, curated by Fabian Goncalves Borrega, opens at NURTUREart Gallery at 910 Grand Street in Williamsburg on October 12th with a reception from 7-9 p.m. Artists featured in the exhibition are Katia Fuentes, Luis Delgado, Amy Tamayo, Mary Daniel Hobson, and Leah Oates.
Fetishism takes us into the realm where fantasy intervenes in representation... the substitution of an object for some dangerous, powerful but forbidden force.
--Stuart Hall
Subjects of Power and Devotion addresses the object's mysterious ability to attract our attention, our desire, and our intrigue. This ability can simply (or not so simply) derive from the aesthetics of the object, or in many cases the object functions as a placeholder for emotional or otherwise significant human experiences. In the photographs collected for Subjects of Power and Devotion, the objects under the artist's gaze are diverse, from human bodies to fragmentary landscapes, but all explore the way we honor, fetishize, and encode desire, memory and power into material substance, including our own bodies.
Subjects of Power and Devotion is a NURTUREart Emerging Curators' Program Collaboration. Learn more about all NURTUREart's programs and opportunities for emerging artists and curators at

Promenade des Artistes




You think you might know someone until you discover another "facette", or "cordes a son arc".
This is one of the reason among many for which "La Promenade des Artistes" was initially organized.
First brain storming around a kitchen table (no kidding!). With Nadine Jalem and Marie Wyatt, we agreed that many talented (mainly) women ought to be encouraged to show what sometimes they discovered they were able to produce , being forced to quit their job as they followed or accompanied their husband and children.
Marie Wyatt didn't stop after this discussion and she put all her energy (a lot) to realize it.
When was it??? 2001 was the first event and of course Marie had her house on the tour and it was in......RYE ..far far away... Far from the other houses , absolutly not walking distances......
And for the last 2 editions, Accueil New York added another dimension to the event.
Check the website by clicking on the title.

Artist around us




Sometimes you don't realize that someone you've known for years specially at school sharing rides to school or discussing about teachers,.... , has another side to her (not darker)This is the case for Claire Birkel otherwise known as Claire de Bailliencourt...Check her website:www.cdbpaintings.com

Hello Laurence!
Voici mon site qui vient juste d'etre mis a jour par mon fils, www.cdbpaintings.com, et que tu peux donc inserer dans ton superbe blog!
Depuis les premieres promenades des artistes ou nous commencions a exposer, chaleureusement encouragees par Marie Wyatt, nous avons quand meme toutes deux parcouru un petit bout de chemin dans nos projets respectifs! Nous en avons encore beaucoup d'autres, et heureusement! Donc, let's keep going, et bravo a toi pour ce qui est deja accompli!
