Hollis Taggart now represents Tim Kent

Born in 1975, Tim Kent, a first-generation Canadian American artist from Turkish and English parentage, joins the gallery’s growing contemporary program. Kent’s work examines the dynamics of power as experienced through architecture and the formal vocabulary of art. His own paintings, which embrace both soft painterly gestures and crisp graphic lines, often depict architectural spaces and landscapes disrupted by the incorporation of grids or other geometries as well as figures in motion. The artist will be featured in a group show at the gallery’s location in Southport, Connecticut later this year and will be the subject of a solo exhibition at Hollis Taggart’s Chelsea flagship in March 2022.

Lisson Gallery celebrates the centenary of the birth of John Latham

John Latham, one of the most enigmatic and influential artists of his generation, best remembered for his painted and sculptural works, was born 100 years ago on 23 February 1921 in Livingstone, Rhodesia (now Zambia). Lisson is celebrating the anniversary with a fortnight of screenings featuring a trio of Latham's films, starting today (23 February) with 'Talk Mr Bard' (1961) – a proto-psychedelic, stop-frame collage of feverish audio and video fragments that reflects Latham's alternately painterly and linguistic expressions of singular moments in time.

The Met‘s Facade Commission to feature new work by Carol Bove

Four new sculptures created by American artist Carol Bove for The Met Fifth Avenue's facade niches will be on view from 1 March, 2021. The Facade Commission: Carol Bove: The séances aren't helping is the second commission to be featured on the facade of The Met. Originally scheduled to go on view in September 2020, the commission was delayed due to the global pandemic. The séances aren't helping will be on view through the fall of 2021.

Born in 1971 in Geneva, Carol Bove was raised in Berkeley, California, and studied at New York University. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn. Known for works that incorporate found and constructed elements with a unique formal, technical, and conceptual inventiveness, Bove consistently challenges and expands the possibilities of formal abstraction. For The Met commission, Bove will offer a striking series of commanding nonrepresentational forms that resonate with modernist styles such as Art Deco and abstraction.

Hauser & Wirth Menorca set to open in July with Mark Bradford exhibition

Located in the port of Mahon in Menorca, the gallery‘s new art center on Isla del Rey will open on 17 July 2021. An exhibition by Mark Bradford will inaugurate Hauser & Wirth Menorca, featuring a dynamic suite of new paintings and sculptures. The art center will also feature an outdoor sculpture trail with works by Louise Bourgeois, Eduardo Chillida, Franz West and others, in dialogue with Isla del Rey’s wildlife and the garden designed by influential landscape designer Piet Oudolf.

Lehmann Maupin announces the representation of Los Angeles-based artist Calida Rawles

Rawles has gained widespread recognition for paintings that merge hyper-realism with poetic abstraction. Situating her subjects in dynamic spaces, her recent work employs water as a vital, organic, multifaceted material, and historically charged space. Ranging from buoyant and ebullient to submerged and mysterious, Black bodies float in exquisitely rendered submarine landscapes of bubbles, ripples, refracted light, and expanses of blue. Rawles will have her first solo exhibition in New York at Lehmann Maupin in September 2021, and will debut a permanent installation in fall 2021 at the new Hollywood Park/SoFi Stadium campus in Inglewood, California.

South London Gallery unveils Lawrence Weiner’s 1999 work on the Fire Station annexe

AT A DISTANCE TO THE FOREGROUND, 1999, has been acquired for the South London Gallery’s permanent collection, and its installation on the Fire Station follows that of another work by Weiner, ALL IN DUE COURSE, that was temporarily shown on the façade in 2014 as part of his solo exhibition of the same name. Lawrence Weiner is one of the most important artists of his generation, known since the 1960s for his engaging and influential work presenting art as a language form. He does not identify himself as a conceptualist but rather as a sculptor whose medium is “language + the materials referred to”. The idea of acquiring the work for the SLG came about before lockdown and social distancing had even been considered in the UK, so the contemporary resonance of the work is both coincidental and poignant.  

Teresa Burga, one of the most important conceptual artists in Latin America, has died at 85

Born in Iquitos, Peru, in 1935, Burga initially studied architecture, before transitioning into art. After graduating in the 1960s, she became a part of Peru’s avant-garde art scene, co-founding of the Arte Nuevo group, which used styles derived from Pop, Happenings, and Op art. During her five decade career, Burga produced paintings, drawings, sculptures, conceptual projects and multimedia installations, questioning the role of women in Peru’s changing society, and pushing the boundaries of what art could be. Teresa Burga’s work was rescued from obscurity when, aged 75, she had her first major survey at Lima’s Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano in 2010. International acclaim followed soon after, with a young generation of curators setting out to situate her career in a more global art world. The artist was first presented to an international audience at the 2011 edition of the Istanbul Biennial, followed by the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015, and the travelling exhibition Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985 2017 – 2018 (Hammer Museum Los Angeles, Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, Pinacoteca de São Paulo, São Paulo).

Skarstedt announces KAWS: WHAT PARTY, an upcoming exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum

For twenty-five years, KAWS has bridged the worlds of art, popular culture, and commerce. Adapting the rules of cultural production and consumption in the twenty-first century, his practice both critiques and participates in consumer culture. KAWS: WHAT PARTY is a sweeping survey featuring more than one hundred broad-ranging works, such as rarely seen graffiti drawings and notebooks, paintings and sculptures, smaller collectibles, furniture, and monumental installations of his popular COMPANION figures. It also features new pieces made uniquely for the exhibition along with his early-career altered advertisements.

Robilant+Voena now represents painter Stephen Appleby-Barr in London, Paris, and Milan

Appleby-Barr’s paintings juxtapose fantastical and everyday objects, conjuring a dreamlike world which verges on the uncanny. Drawn to the intricate symbolism and aesthetics of old master painting, his masterly use of oil paint creates deeply atmospheric works which transport the viewer into his otherworldly universe. The Canada-born, London-based painter is the first emerging artist to be represented by the gallery. His first solo exhibition at Robilant+Voena will open in London in March 2021.

Bonhams to present Picassomania, a new auction showcasing the diversity of Pablo Picasso's oeuvre

Pablo Picasso is the most celebrated artist of the 20th Century and though he is most famous for his paintings, he was a versatile artist who experimented with every possible medium, from traditional painting and printmaking techniques, through to pottery and jewellery. Offering a curated selection of significant artworks and objects Picassomania will take place in London at the Bonhams flagship New Bond Street saleroom on 23 March, 2021.

Sélavy by Di Donna announces Palm Beach residency at Sotheby’s gallery at The Royal Poinciana Plaza

Maureen Paley announces representation of Hannah Collins

Hannah Collins’ large format black-and-white photographs brought her to prominence during the 1980s and she was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1993. Her work draws attention to historical and social frameworks, addressing this through a wide range of subjects and geographical locations with images of interiors, exteriors, interactions and specific objects. Examples of her work are held in many collections including the Dallas Art Museum (USA), MACBA (Spain), Pompidou Centre (France), Reina Sofia Museum (Spain), Sprengel Museum (Germany), Tate (UK), and Walker Art, Center (USA) amongst others. The gallery builds upon an early connection with the artist having first shown her work in an exhibition Evidence in the Streets – War Damage Volumes in 1984.

Sterling Ruby debuts his first haute couture collection

Created at the invitation of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode in Paris, the collection, entitled APPARITIONS, explores the intersection of fashion, art, craft and culture, and expands the idea of the artist’s studio as atelier. The collection was launched as part of Haute Couture Week Spring/Summer 2021 (25 - 28 January, 2021), with the show featuring figures walking like specters in a post-apocalyptic landscape imagined from footage filmed by Ruby in an empty paintball park in Southern California.

Hedda Schattanik and Roman Szczesny join Sies + Höke

Hedda Schattanik (b. 1992 in Westerstede) and Roman Szczesny (b. 1987 in Bensberg) interweave cinematographic elements with surreal animation, literature, drama, sculpture, photography and drawing in video installations. Both artists graduated from the Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie and have been working together since 2014. Their main artistic practice expands the traditional boundaries of art-making, while reflecting the perceptions, preconceptions and contradictions which characterize our existence in the world. The artists‘ first solo exhibition at Sies + Höke, loom, is on view from the outside of the gallery‘s main window until 27 February 2021.

Simon Lee Gallery announces representation of Erin Shirreff

With her multimedia practice that includes photography, sculpture and video, Erin Shirreff (b. 1975, Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada) raises questions about the experience of three-dimensional sculptural form in an age of digital dissemination, inviting her audience to decelerate observation. Shirreff’s interest in the relationship between an object and its representation explores fine art photography as part of a wider culture of images, which exposes the slippage between an understanding of an object in real space and its mediation in two dimensions. The gallery will present its first exhibition of Shirreff’s work in London in 2022.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York receives a gift of Georg Baselitz paintings

The museum announced today that the German artist Georg Baselitz and his wife, Elke, have gifted six landmark paintings by the artist to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in honor of its 150th anniversary in 2020. The portraits, made in 1969, are among the first that Baselitz created using the radical strategy of inversion, in which the pictorial motif is literally turned upside down, enabling the artist to focus on painting's possibilities, rather than the image of the sitter in direct relationship to the viewer. The six paintings will remain on view in Georg Baselitz: Pivotal Turn in The Met's Robert Lehman Wing through 18 July, 2021.

Independent announces new dates and a new venue for 2021

Scheduled to take place from 9 to 12 September, this year’s Independent art fair will feature approximately 40 leading international galleries, each invited to present specially commissioned, museum caliber presentations by leading artists that are both relevant and timely to our current moment. The fair will be held at Cipriani South Street in New York City, a landmark building due to fully launch later this year.  The 2021 edition of Independent takes its inspiration from Independent Projects, a special edition of the fair at the former Dia Center for the Arts in 2014, which at the time was praised by The New York Times as a “welcome mutation” to the traditional art fair format.

Gagosian highlights Nathaniel Mary Quinn as part of the gallery’s Artist Spotlight series

In his composite portraits derived from sources both personal and found, Nathaniel Mary Quinn probes the relationship between visual memory and perception. Fragments of images taken from online sources, fashion magazines, and family photographs come together to form hybrid faces and figures that are at once Dadaesque and adamantly realist, evoking the intimacy and intensity of a face-to-face encounter. The gallery will unveil a new painting by the artist on Friday 29 January at 6pm EDT.

Edmund de Waal donates library of exile to the Mosul University Library in Iraq

Following presentations in Venice, Dresden, and London, British artist and author Edmund de Waal will donate almost 2,000 books from his acclaimed installation library of exile to the Mosul University Library in Iraq to help rebuild its collection which was almost destroyed in 2015 by the group calling itself the Islamic State. The Mosul University Library will be the final home for the library’s collection recently on display at the British Museum, and features the work of writers from over a hundred countries in dozens of languages from antiquity to the present day by over 100 writers from across the world who have experienced exile, loss and displacement. The external walls of the library of exile - painted with liquid porcelain and inscribed with the names of the great lost libraries of the world - are being gifted to The Warburg Institute, London, by the artist and will be incorporated into the institute’s redesign, due to be completed in 2023/24.

The John Giorno Foundation Announces the First Posthumous Presentations of the Artist's Work in Spring and Fall, 2021

Recognized as one of the most innovative poets and artists of the 20th Century, John Giorno’s (1936-2019) kaleidoscopic work fused and furthered poetry, visual art and activism, pushing text off the printed page and into the social realm. Following the formation of the John Giorno Foundation in 2020, the artist’s work will be jointly represented by Sperone Westwater and Almine Rech, alongside Galerie Eva Presenhuber.

Fabrice Gygi awarded the Prix de la Société des Arts of Geneva

Fabrice Gygi is one of Switzerland’s leading artists of his generation. Marked by nomadism, his career as an artist has made him carry out a constantly renewed formal research. For more than thirty years, he explored the ambivalence of artefacts he made — at the crossroad of practicality and art. This orchestrated ambiguity enabled him to free himself from a normative society obeying logics of power.

Hollis Taggart announces representation of Suchitra Mattai and Alexandros Vasmoulakis

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam to receive a library of Surrealist works

The gift from the collectors Laurens Vancrevel and his partner Frida de Jong includes monographs, catalogues and literature on Surrealism, ranging from poetry and prose to essays, published in several languages. More than four thousand, mostly unique, titles from the beginnings of Surrealism up to the present day will be transferred to Boijmans, meaning that the museum will have a very extensive Surrealism library in the future. With this in mind, the museum has conceived the idea of opening a study centre to focus on Surrealism, which will be the first in the world.

Brenna Youngblood Now Represented by Roberts Projects

Born in Riverside, California in 1979, Brenna Youngblood takes as her subject the distilling and revising of an alternative Americana as seen through a dry art historical lens. Her work incorporates both autobiographical and fictional narratives to explore the iconography of the Black experience, the methods, politics and ethics of representation, and the legacy of abstraction. Youngblood often integrates found objects and materials into her compositions, imbuing her work with a sensual, tactile quality. This strategy is perhaps clearest in her most recent paintings–which explore the formalities of the painted surface–and are similar in certain aspects to the works of Color Field artists of the 1960's and 70’s, yet examine more complex political subject matter in a symbiotic-like network of aesthetic relationships. The artist's debut exhibition with the gallery will be on view March 6 – April 17, 2021.

Alison Jacques Gallery presents a Virtual Talk and Film Screening on The Gee's Bend Quiltmakers

Julian Charrière nominated for the Marcel Duchamp Prize 2021

Born in 1987, Julian Charrière uses a range of artistic approaches including photography, performance, sculpture and video to address questions relating to the passage of time and the relationship of our contemporary societies to the natural world. His research practice merges art, science and anthropology, highlighting the tensions that mark the relationship between man and his environment.

Created in 2000 by Gilles Fuchs, Founder and president of ADIAF, the Marcel Duchamp Prize aims to highlight the creative abundance of the French scene at the beginning of the 21st century and to support artists in their international career.

Almine Rech announces the passing of Kim Tschang-Yeul (1929-2021)

Considered one of the pre-eminent figures in the establishment of contemporary Korean art on the international scene, Kim Tschang-Yeul‘s work has been shown around the world for more than fifty years. Born in 1929 in the north of the then unified Korea, he migrated to the south to escape the communist regime. He subsequently left for New York to pursue his artistic dreams before finally settling in Paris in 1969. There, he began to nurture, over a period of forty years, a unique motif: the drop of water. The waterdrop was the starting point for a singular and iconic body of work, which stands at the confluence of lyrical abstraction, Pop art and Chinese calligraphy. This simple and limpid œuvre subtly fused Taoist wisdom, modern conceptual irony and the tragedy of war.

Christopher Le Brun Knighted in the 2021 Queen’s Honours List

Le Brun has been a celebrated British painter, printmaker and sculptor since the early 1980s, and was a prizewinner at the John Moores Liverpool exhibitions in 1978 and 1980.

Petzel announces representation of the Joyce Pensato Estate and dual exhibitions for January 2021

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Joyce Pensato (1941–2019) lived and worked in Brooklyn her entire career except for a few months’ long stints in Europe in the late 1980s and early 1990s, particularly in Paris and in Verteuil. The artist credited her father, a Sicilian immigrant, as a great influence on her love of Pop culture, America and the arts, often times taking her and her brother Benedict to 42nd Street, the Statue of Liberty and other famous New York tourist sites to soak up the vibrancy of his adopted city. Pensato’s critical recognition came in the early 1990s, and her charcoal drawings were the first to gain attention. From January 15 through February 27, 2021, Petzel will present two solo exhibitions of the artist’s works at its Chelsea and Upper East Side galleries, which will include paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installation, some of which have never been exhibited before.

Alison Jacques Gallery now represents Carol Rhodes (1959–2018)

Carol Rhodes’s intense landscape paintings and drawings explore conceptions of ‘natural’ and ‘man-made’ environments and subtly redefine ideas of beauty and expression. The first project will be an exhibition of paintings and drawings from across Rhodes’s career and is scheduled to open in February 2021. Born in Edinburgh in 1959, Rhodes grew up in Serampore, India, where her father worked as a medic and a theology professor. In her teens, she relocated to the UK to complete her education, but continued to visit India into her twenties. This early experience of travel, and the complex feeling of belonging and displacement it provoked, would later prove formative in Rhodes’s art.

Fergus McCaffrey announces the death of Tatsuo Ikeda (1928–2020)

The acclaimed Japanese artist, whose career-long engagement with universal themes of conflict, nationalism, genesis, and transformation, inspired and emboldened an entire generation of Japanese artists, passed away last month at the age of ninety-two. Born in Saga Prefecture, Japan, in 1928, the course of Ikeda’s early life was dramatically altered by the ongoing intensity of World War II, culminating in his service as a kamikaze pilot at the age of fifteen. Spared by the ending of World War II, in 1948, Ikeda moved to Tokyo and attended Tama Art University where he became engaged in Taro Okamoto and Kiyoteru Hanada’s Avant-garde Art Study Group.

An exhibition of the artist’s work is currently on view, by appointment, in Tatsuo Ikeda & Philippe Parreno: Field Phase at Fergus McCaffrey in New York.

Pace Gallery launches an online charity exhibition in support of Nevelson Chapel

In 1977, Louise Nevelson was commissioned to design a chapel for Saint Peter’s Church in Midtown Manhattan. Nevelson herself called this space “an oasis of silence” from the hustle and bustle of New York.  Over the past two years, the Chapel has been undergoing extensive renovations to ensure the safekeeping of this peerless sculpture for future generations. As the "Renewing a Masterwork" fundraising campaign reaches its first major milestone with a foundational gift from Pace Gallery, Nevelson Chapel is embarking on a public drive to source donations from individual contributors to reach their $5.75 million goal. The gallery's online exhibition features three seminal collage works by Nevelson from the 1970s, on view until 30 December.

Tiwani Contemporary now represents Umar Rashid (Frohawk Two Feathers)

Across portraits, maps, flags, artefacts, vignettes and drawings and other visual remnants of an imagined empire and its multiple interactions, Rashid reveals pivotal events and the ever-changing fortunes of a lively array of protagonists, both elite and quotidian, all peculiar to a highly novel parallel universe. The artist was born in 1976 in Chicago, Illinois, and currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.

Simon Lee Gallery announces representation of German artist Werner Büttner

Werner Büttner is renowned for drawing out deeper layers of meaning from quotidian life that at first glance seem banal. His canvases and collages depict a tragi-comic reality, confronting social norms with both irony and satire, while retaining a firm grip on the history of painting.

Alison Jacques Gallery announces representation of Sophie Barber

Born in 1996 in St Leonards-on-Sea and working in the nearby town of Hastings, Sophie Barber is a painter who draws directly from the world around her, reproducing natural and man-made visual fragments in an attempt to preserve and process their forms. Gathering and positioning tents, birds, dens and word games on monumental block-colour canvases, she creates surreal, folk-like compositions that are less depictions of her native Sussex coast than distillations of the impression it leaves. Barber’s debut exhibition will open in London in September 2021.

Hauser & Wirth announces representation of the François Morellet Estate

François Morellet (1926 – 2016), a prolific self-taught painter, sculptor, and installation artist, developed a radical approach to geometric abstraction during a career spanning more than six decades. His object-based paintings, neon and architectural installations, and site-specific works explored the creative potential of kinetic and pre-established systems, challenging the viewer’s understanding of perception and the physical picture plane. Working primarily with basic geometric forms, Morellet was committed to a methodology of rigorous objectivity and personal detachment.

The gallery's international representation of the artist will be in collaboration with the Paris-based gallery, kamel mennour. An exhibition of the Morellet’s work will be presented in New York in January 2021.

Richard Saltoun now represents Barbara Levittoux-Świderska

One of the most important textile artists in Poland, Barbara Levittoux-Świderska transformed tapestry from flat decoration into avant-garde installation. Born in Warsaw, Levittoux-Świderska came to prominence in the 1960s when textiles entered mainstream contemporary art. Like fellow Polish textile artists Magdalena Abakanowicz and Jolanta Owidzka, Levittoux-Świderska followed the Eastern European tradition, incorporating locally sourced materials and rural practices to improvise new textile art-making methods and forms, continuing a distinctly Polish and politically-charged weaving tradition.

Her work is currently included in the gallery's group exhibition 'Our inheritance was left to us by no testament' and will be presented virtually as part of Art Basel Miami Beach's Online Viewing Room (2–6 December 2020).

Gagosian spotlights Jeff Wall, as part of its Artist Spotlight series

From his pioneering use of backlit color transparencies in the 1970s to his intricately staged scenes of enigmatic incidents from daily life, literature, and film, Jeff Wall has expanded the definition of the photograph, both as object and as illusion. His pictures range from classical reportage and the direct contemplation of natural forms to elaborate constructions and montages, usually produced at a large scale traditionally identified with painting.

The Maria Lassnig Foundation and the Serpentine Galleries announced today, 29 October, that the 2021 Prize has been awarded to UK-based Ghanaian artist Atta Kwami, known for his paintings, murals and kiosk-sculptures that are conceived as expanded three-dimensional paintings, incorporating his signature use of colour and abstract painting style.

Daniel Crews-Chubb joins Timothy Taylor

Crews-Chubb (b. 1984, Northampton, England) is known for his vibrant collage-based works, which deconstruct symbols, archetypes and motifs taken from over a millennium of Western and Eastern painting, craft and sculpture.

Visually echoing the labyrinthine accretions of art history, Crews-Chubb hand-paints layered surfaces composed of canvas and fabric, encrusted with heavy impasto, charcoal drawing and graffiti. His work frequently challenges the traditional vocabulary of classical painting, as in his solo presentation Flowers with the gallery at Frieze Online in May, which featured savagely torn paintings of flowers inspired by van Gogh's Sunflowers series.

Modern Art announces representation of Justin Caguiat

Caguiat’s idiosyncratic style is informed by varied fields including science fiction literature, the baroque-folk hybrid aesthetic of early Filipino Catholic Santos, 60s psychedelia, les Nabis, Ukiyo-E, urban graphic art and the historical legacy of Manga. In scale and format his paintings can be read like murals and landscapes, and while not narrative, have a reverential or devotional purpose akin to a fresco. Born in 1989 in Tokyo, Japan, Caguiat now lives and works in New York City.

Gagosian presents Rachel Whiteread as part of Artist Spotlight series

Available now for 48 hours only, Rachel Whiteread’s new work Untitled (Pinboard) is cast from a studio bulletin board that holds images, notes, sketches, and other information. Whiteread has likened this type of visual arrangement to “looking out of a window.” In sculptures such as this, her use of casting subverts the technique’s usual role as a replicative process; the works differ from their originals and bear the haptic traces of human intervention, evoking narratives and memories belonging to the source objects.

Thomas Dane Gallery, Kate MacGarry, Lisson Gallery, Sadie Coles HQ launch The Gallery Climate Coalition (GCC)

Alison Jacques Gallery announces representation of Nicola L. (1932 – 2018)

As the only gallery working with Nicola L., the partnership between Alison Jacques and the Nicola L. Collection and Archive provides an invaluable opportunity to further enhance the profile of the L.’s pioneering work and foreground underexposed aspects of the artist’s prolific practice. Born in 1932 in Mazagan, Morocco, L. relocated to Paris in 1954 to study abstract painting at the prestigious École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. By the time she rose to prominence in the mid-1960s, she had developed an ambitious interdisciplinary practice that spanned performance, film and collage, as well as the better-known interactive sculptures. But in spite of her technical dexterity, Nicola L. maintained an unwavering commitment to the global feminist movement and the political potential of the collective. The first project will be an exhibition of Nicola L.’s work from the 1960s and 1970s including many previously unseen series, scheduled to open in 2021.

Born in 1946, the artist spent most of his life in the town of Yokosuka, Japan, the home port of the US Navy’s 7th Fleet.

Gray hosts a poetry reading by Jim Dine

On 20 June, the gallery hosted a poetry reading by Jim Dine, live from his studio. The American artist rose to prominence in late-1950’s New York.
