Good Bye Thom Collins..See you in Miami in December

© Herzog & de Meuron, visualization by Artefactorylab, Courtesy Miami Art Museum

The new Miami Art Museum at Museum Park, Herzog & de Meuron, Bay view MIAMI— As the world’s wheelers and dealers revel in the market madness of Basel, Switzerland, the Miami Art Museum, located not far from the grounds of Art Basel Miami Beach, has oh-so-quietly announced that it will tap Thomas “Thom” Collins as its new director. Collins, the current director of the Neuberger Museum of Art in Purchase, New York, fills the vacancy left when MAM director Terry Riley announced late last year that he would resign amid speculation that the museum was having difficulty raising money for its planned $220-million new building. For Collins, who is in his 40s, the move represents the latest step in a rapid ascent in the museum world. After serving as a curatorial fellow at the Museum of Modern Art — where Riley had worked as architecture curator prior to MAM — he was appointed chief curator at Cincinnati's Contemporary Arts Center in 1997. He then arrived at the Neuberger in 2005.

The appointment comes two weeks after the city of Miami approved $100 million in bonds that will be used to finance the construction of a new 120,000-square-foot space designed by Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron. At the time of his resignation, Riley told the Miami New Times: “There's a pretty long list of directors who've probably ruined their careers getting involved in a building program. It could be career tragedy.” As of May, the museum had reportedly raised $31 million of the $100 million in private funding required to complete the project.

Collins is scheduled to start at MAM in August, meaning he will be able to share in the pleasures of Art Basel Miami Beach this December. However, the museum’s new building will not be open to the revelers until 2013, assuming that Collins raises the money (and construction is completed) as scheduled.

Artist's residence @ Dora Maar House in Menerbes ....

Historic Dora Maar House in Ménerbes, France Is Now Home toThe Brown Foundation Fellows Program Administered by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Houston, March 2008—The historic home of Dora Maar, muse to Pablo Picasso,who gave her an 18th-century stone house in southern France, is now home to The Brown Foundation Fellows Program at Dora Maar House. This international program, for artists, critics, and professionals in the arts and humanities, is offered by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston under the guidance of Peter C. Marzio, director. The fellowships offer outstanding mid-career professionals the opportunity to further their artistic and scholarly work in the tranquil environment of the village of Ménerbes, located in the Luberon region of Provence about 40 kilometers southeast of Avignon. Applications for one- to three-month fellowships beginning on July 1 and ending no later than December 15, 2008, are now being accepted. A second cycle of fellowships, with applications due on November 15, will begin on February 1, 2009.

Each fellow is accommodated in the Dora Maar House, and is provided with a study or studio in which to work; travel expenses from the Fellow’s home to Ménerbes and return; reasonable shipping expenses for books and supplies; and a grant based upon the length of stay at the Dora Maar House. In return, Fellows are asked to be good neighbors to the citizens of Ménerbes and to do some sort of public program while in residence; to donate to the house one work of art or publication created while in residence. Should a publication ensue based on work during the fellowship, The Brown Foundation Fellows Program at Dora Maar House asks to be recognized in the publication’s acknowledgements.

The four-story house is the former residence of Dora Maar, photographer, poet, and painter, and perhaps best-known as Picasso’s mistress and muse in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The home has been fully renovated and updated, and is located in the heart of the 1,200-person village. It has four bedrooms with private baths, a studio for artists, three studies for writers, and a piano. It also has two beautiful gardens, a large kitchen, dining, library, and living rooms. The house is equipped with high-speed, wireless Internet. The village has long been known for attracting artists, and is home to an international community of painters, musicians,filmmakers, actors, and writers.

Katherine Howe, director of Rienzi and curator of decorative arts at the MFAH, is director of The Brown Foundation Fellows Program at the Dora Maar House.
Gwen Strauss, who is based in Ménerbes, is assistant director.

New Work on view on the Highline..

Stephen Vitiello A Bell for Every Minute

Stephen Vitiello’'s new multi-channel sound installation A Bell For Every Minute is a site-specific work commissioned for the High Line. The piece will fill the 14th Street Passage, a semi-enclosed tunnel between West 13th and West 14th Streets, with sound recordings of bells taken from all over New York City and beyond. Sounds range from the iconic rings of the New York Stock Exchange bell, the historic Dreamland bell days after it was discovered in the water off Coney Island, the United Nation’s Peace Bell, and more everyday and personal sounds of bike bells, diner bells, and neighborhood church bells. Bells are used in our culture to mark the passing of time, act as warnings and alerts, mark celebrations, and memorialize those lost. While there are numerous conditions under which bells are heard in our city, they are universal sounds that all of us can appreciate as part of the auditory landscape of our lives.

During park hours an individual bell will ring each minute from speakers placed throughout the tunnel, the overtones fading out as the next bell begins. A chorus of the selected bells will play at the top of each hour, filling the space. The sounds will be represented on a physical sound map that identifies the location of each bell, allowing the listener to follow the geographic journey of the recordings. Collectively, the bells are a microcosm of the urban landscape as they relate to the sounds captured throughout the daily life in New York City. The site, much like a bell tower, becomes activated by the composition, inviting the passerby to engage with the High Line and its connection to the city around it.

Sound has the ability to shape our perception of physical space, and our navigation of the environment around us. As a key figure in the worlds of sound art and experimental music, Vitiello'’s work has helped shape the field of sound in New York and globally. By exploring his native city through an auditory map in A Bell for Every Minute, Vitiello provides a unique take on the New York experience from both the communal and intensely personal perspectives that only sound can provide.
A Bell for Every Minute was curated by Meredith Johnson of Creative Time. Architectural work and sound map design by Kristen Becker of Mutuus Studio and sound programming by Bob Bielecki.

LAST DAYS FOR KENNETH NOLAND ++++ If interested in photographs,....Check out HAUNTED @ the Guggenheim

May 21–June 20, 2010

A key figure of postwar abstract painting, Kenneth Noland explored the essential qualities of color and surface throughout a career that spanned six decades. Noland was born on April 10, 1924, in Asheville, North Carolina. He attended the nearby Black Mountain College on the GI Bill from 1946 to 1948 before leaving for Paris, where he studied with the sculptor Ossip Zadkine and was introduced to the work of Henri Matisse. During his studies at Black Mountain in the late 1940s, and again in the summer of 1950, Noland was affected by the teachings of former Bauhaus master Josef Albers, who was the driving force at the school and who had brought with him from Germany an encyclopedic knowledge of twentieth-century European art. However, Noland’s commitment to pure abstraction derived primarily from his studies with painter Ilya Bolotowsky.

Around this time, Noland also met critic Clement Greenberg, sculptor David Smith, and painters Helen Frankenthaler and Morris Louis, all of whom influenced his subsequent artistic development. Liberated from the constraints of European modernism and challenged by the groundbreaking work of the Abstract Expressionists, Noland experimented with Frankenthaler’s ”soak-stain” technique of applying thinned acrylic paint to unprimed canvas, fusing color and material. Starting in the early 1950s, Noland began producing a number of works that have been termed Post Painterly Abstraction and Color Field painting for their emphasis on clarity and control over the emotive gesture favored by the Abstract Expressionists. Kenneth Noland, 1924–2010: A Tribute commemorates the work of this American artist with one painting from each of his early series of concentric circles, chevrons, stripes, and shaped canvases.

"special LMNY COMMENTS: I loved this exhibit.
check the website for the online video about the exhibit"
@11am and 1pm you have guided tours by docents. I haven't followed it but it is a good alternative to the audio guide"
Much of contemporary photography and video seems haunted by the past, by ghostly apparitions that are reanimated in reproductive media, as well as in live performance and the virtual world. By using dated, passé, or quasi-extinct stylistic devices, subject matter, and technologies, this art embodies a melancholic longing for an otherwise irrecuperable past. Haunted: Contemporary Photography/Video/Performance examines myriad ways photographic imagery is incorporated into recent practice and in the process underscores the unique power of reproductive media while documenting a widespread contemporary obsession, both collective and individual, with accessing the past. The works included in the exhibition range from individual photographs and photographic series, to sculptures and paintings that incorporate photographic elements, and to videos, both on monitors and projected, as well as film, performance, and site-specific installations. Drawn primarily from the Guggenheim Museum collection, Haunted features recent acquisitions, many of which are exhibited by the museum for the first time. Included in the show is work by such artists as Marina Abramović, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Sophie Calle, Tacita Dean, Stan Douglas, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roni Horn, Zoe Leonard, Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy Sherman, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Jeff Wall, and Andy Warhol. A significant part of the exhibition is dedicated to work created since 2001 by younger artists. This exhibition is curated by Jennifer Blessing, Curator of Photography, and Nat Trotman, Associate Curator.....

Louis Vuitton Launches Young Artists InitiativeBy ARTINFO

Louis Vuitton Launches Young Artists InitiativeBy ARTINFO

Published: May 12, 2010 © Patrick McMullan Photography

Tracey Emin
LONDON— After collaborating over the years with established artists like the late Stephen Sprouse and Takahashi Murakami — with whom they created a pop-up handbag store at the Brooklyn Museum — French fashion house Louis Vuitton has apparently decided to create a farm team of up-and-coming talent. The fashion house has launched a Young Arts Project, an initiative that will give promising emerging artists access to an immersive three-year program of workshops and tours at Tate Britain, the Royal Academy of Arts, South London Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery, and the Hayward Gallery. The South London Gallery will oversee the project, working in concert with the four other institutions and artists Chris Ofili and Charlie Dark, who helped conceive the program. British art-world heavyweights like Tracey Emin, Gary Hume, Michael Landy, and Keith Tyson will also provide guidance, along with various collectors — giving artists between the ages of 13 and 25 rare access to power players in the British art scene.

The Young Arts Project plans to recruit students from local schools and youth groups, breaking them up into five panels to visit exhibition spaces and hear talks with artists and museum directors. The five galleries will later select a group from each panel to take part in an intensive five-day academy, the first of which will be take place at the Royal Academy Schools and Louis Vuitton's New Bond Street location.

California Dreamin’ published in the "NewYork Observer"

California Dreamin’...By Phyllis Tuchman June 9, 2010 12:33 a.m.

The embryonic counterculture of the late 1950s and early 1960s gets short shrift in art history textbooks, which usually leap from Abstract Expressionism to Pop and Minimalism with barely a nod to the radical, imaginative innovators in between. Two solo shows at major Chelsea galleries right now fill in the blanks.

At first glance, Mark di Suvero's soaring, 24-foot-high sculpture Nova Albion and Edward Kienholz's intricate, trailer-size Roxy's couldn't seem more dissimilar. But both Mr. di Suvero and Kienholz were Californians in their early 30s when they created the masterworks in these solo shows, both used scavenged and recycled materials-and both here mostly display the ingenuity and inventiveness that are hallmarks of the finest American sculptors.

Kienholz made art about sex in the backseat of jalopies, about state mental hospitals, about bordellos.

In 1965, Mr. di Suvero worked on the beach at Point Reyes, 20 miles north of San Francisco, hard-pressed to find a space anywhere else where he could execute a construction as tall and expansive as Nova Albion. As water lapped the shoreline, he (astonishingly, working alone) hoisted, angled and balanced lengths of steel, cable and local redwood into a playful, ebullient network of lines of varying thicknesses. Silhouetted against open space, the weathered trees were in sharp contrast to the smooth, manufactured metal parts. Originally, Nova Albion included a broad, low-lying element upon which a couple could lie, swinging back and forth. Mark di Suvero literally demonstrated that for ambitious sculptors, the sky's the limit.

Critics back in the day didn't get it. Because Mr. di Suvero's exhilarating medley of materials bore a superficial resemblance to superstar Franz Kline's calligraphic slashes, his structures were compared to the Abstract Expressionist's canvases. They didn't acknowledge the originality of his quirky, towering art as forcefully as they should have. Fortunately, with his current show at Paula Cooper Gallery, we now have the opportunity to right that wrong.

Mr. di Suvero's exhibition illustrates his versatility by including other aspects of his practice. A large, somewhat psychedelic painting at the entrance to the gallery evokes the artist's hippie roots. And three relatively recent, elegant steel sculptures suggest that the artist shapes, cuts and welds geometric forms as if he were using paper, glue and scissors. The bold imagery and the raw surfaces of this trio reveal Mr. di Suvero to be a master not just of the complex, but the understated.

Two blocks downtown, Roxy's is the late Edward Kienholz's imaginative 1960-1961 re-creation of a decrepit, 1940s-style bordello. As you approach the Kienholz, you hear old tunes wafting from a Wurlitzer jukebox stocked with Artie Shaw, Frank Sinatra and Benny Goodman. Sometimes, you're also greeted by the smell of stale tobacco smoke or cheap perfume. The entryway table is strewn with issues of Time, Life and the Saturday Evening Post from 1943. Sofas that have seen better days are arranged on faded Persian rugs. Various end tables hold ashtrays overflowing with cigarette butts; a glass globe encasing a red rose; and a tchotchke of the three monkeys who see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil. Roxy's (at David Zwirner Gallery through June 19) probably has one detail too many.

Kienholz was a co-founder of the legendary Ferus Gallery, and this is his first tableau, the term the Los Angeles-based artist used for his walk-through environments that addressed the day's big themes-the Vietnam War, abortion-as well as life in backwater America. He made art about sex in the backseat of jalopies, about state mental hospitals and, here, about bordellos. The bordello is populated with eight bizarre, fragmented figures, including Miss Cherry Delight, A Lady Named Zoa and Cockeyed Jenny, assembled from a plethora of found objects, ranging from an old-fashioned sewing machine table to an antiquated mail drop box. Occasionally, a bag covers the head of Dianna Poole, Miss Universal, to underscore her being as ugly as sin.

Fifty years ago, Kienholz's Roxy's was viewed as a searing commentary on its epoch. But as the decades have passed, the works have remained artful-but lost much of their bite. Nonetheless, the artist's and artwork's historical importance is indisputable: Like many of his room-size sculptures, Roxy's is a precursor of installation art. His bizarre figures formed from all sorts of oddities have influence beyond their time and call to mind today's current crop of figurative sculptures (the work of Matthew Monahan, Thomas Houseago).
Fifty years ago, these sculptures, Nova Albion and Roxy's, were infamous and radical, and their creators were at the fringe. They now belong to the core of American art.

PARIS SYNDROME as reviewed in "Backstage" ...

Paris Syndrome /Ex.Pgirl at Here Arts Center /Reviewed by Lisa Jo Sagolla /June 07, 2010

,...."Paris Syndrome" can be an enjoyable affair. An 80-minute multimedia dance-theater exploration of French culture as viewed through the eyes of young Japanese women, the show suffers from a ludicrous theme, which some might find offensive.

While "Paris Syndrome" allows for ravishing visual effects, comic parodies of historical characters, and savvy pop-culture references, the show's driving concept is derived from the idea that when some female Japanese 30-somethings visit Paris, the culture shock is so great that they become delusional, afflicted with a psychiatric condition called "Paris syndrome." The "devastating" experiences that shatter these women's romantic notions of France .............
.............directed by Emma Griffin, the performance is conceived and created by Bertie Ferdman and Suzi Takahashi, with Kiyoko Kashiwagi, in collaboration with Valerie Issembert, Soomi Kim, and Mathilde Dratwa. Those six women also make up the show's vivacious cast, adroitly dancing, singing, miming, and acting their way through this fluidly constructed movement-theater pastiche.
With dazzling video by Shaun Irons and Lauren Petty, and elaborate costumes by Takahashi, "Paris Syndrome" handsomely depicts familiar French artworks, historical events, and symbols of Paris. Stunning shots of famous Parisian landmarks form the backdrop for brilliantly arranged pyramids, in which the performers configure their bodies cheerleading style to suggest the architectural outlines of the buildings. Kashiwagi offers a well-observed choreographic interpretation of Gene Kelly in the film "An American in Paris," while Takahashi does a mean Edith Piaf, and the whole company invokes great fun with an audience-participation, trivia-question game that pits Francophiles against the Japanese.
Presented by Here and Ex.Pgirl at Here Arts Center, 145 Sixth Ave., NYC. June 5–19. Wed.–Sat., 8:30 p.m. (Additional performance Tue., June 15, 8:30 p.m.) (212) 352-3101, (866) 811-4111, www.theatermania.com, or www.here.org.

INFORMATIONS : Tél. 01 40 03 75 75 Site : www.villette.com e-mail : contact@villette.com
HORAIRES : Mercredi, jeudi, vendredi, dimanche 14h-19h Samedi 14h-21h
PRIX D'ENTRÉE: Entrée libre

Le Parc de la Villette présente les dernières œuvres du sculpteur Duane Hanson, aujourd'hui considéré comme la figure majeure de l'hyperréalisme américain. L'artiste trouve sa place dans le paysage artistique américain dès les années 60, se démarquant du courant dominant d'alors, l'expressionnisme abstrait.

Décédé en 1996 et peu exposé en France, Duane Hanson s'avère encore d'une grande actualité, tant son regard critique sur la société américaine des années 70-90 peut faire écho aux désarrois que beaucoup connaissent aujourd'hui dans notre propre société.

L'exposition compte 15 sculptures, en résine et fibre de verre, plus vivantes que nature. À travers ses œuvres, l'artiste représente les « stars du quotidien » : femme de ménage, étudiant, ouvrier ou retraité ; il explore le sens de la vie, celle de chacun d'entre nous.

L'exposition provoque une rencontre étonnante avec ces personnages à la fois émouvants et critiques de nos vies contemporaines.

SAINT CLAIR CEMIN "Splendeur et misère"
Du 5 juin au 24 juillet 2010/Vernissage le samedi 5 juin de 12 h à 20 h
June 5 through July 24, 2010/Opening reception Saturday June 5, noon-8pm

Saint Clair Cemin, Splendeur et misère, 2010, dimensions variables / variable dimensions
L’artiste brésilien Saint Clair Cemin revient à la Galerie Daniel Templon avec une étonnante installation de plus de cent sculptures explorant les thèmes balzaciens des illusions perdues et des vicissitudes de l’être. Pour cette nouvelle exposition, l’artiste développe un univers unique élaboré à partir de sculptures de tous formats et dans des matériaux aussi variés que le plâtre, le marbre, le bois ou encore le bronze doré. Empreint des références littéraires sur les thèmes de l’amour et de la mort, cet ensemble souligne l’exacerbation des sentiments humains et leurs déviances, la quête perpétuelle et futile de l’être pour accéder à un « mieux » qui n’est qu’illusion.

Brazilian artist Saint Clair Cemin returns to Galerie Daniel Templon with an astonishing installation of over 100 sculptures exploring themes that evoke Balzac: disillusion and the vicissitudes of existence. For his latest exhibition, the artist has created a unique universe comprising sculptures of all sizes created from materials as varied as plaster, marble, wood and gilt bronze. With their numerous literary references to love and death, the works speak of how human feelings are kindled and how they deviate, of the being’s endless and futile quest to attain a “better” state which is nothing more than an illusion.

Louise Bourgeois, 1911 – 2010..Source: Hauser & Wirth

Louise Bourgeois, 1911 – 2010
(Dimitri Yeros 2007)

With deep sadness, we join the Bourgeois family, Jerry Gorovoy and Wendy Williams in mourning the passing of Louise Bourgeois on 31 May.
Louise Bourgeois’s subject was always her life and experiences. ‘Art’, she once said, ‘is the experiencing – or rather the re-experiencing – of a trauma’. Through her innovative approach to media and her feminist stance she created a body of work whose distinctive and sensual treatment of forms has proved a major influence to younger generations of artists. She is remembered with great admiration and fondness and will be deeply missed by all who knew her and her art.
A solo exhibition of Bourgeois's work is currently on view at the Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens until 12 September, as well as 'Louise Bourgeois/Hans Bellmer – Double Sexus' at Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg, Berlin until 15 August. A major exhibition of Bourgeois's fabric drawings and large-scale sculptures will be on view at the Fondazione Vedova in Venice from 5 June. This exhibition will travel to Hauser & Wirth London, opening on 14 October.
