Sophie Hastings on Milena Muzquiz

March 7, 2019

Milena Muzquiz in 2019

Milena Muzquiz (b. Mexico 1972) grew up between the sister cities of Tijuana and San Diego, on either side of the most visited border in the world. There is a little piece of ocean in between that she could feasibly have swum across, Muzquiz tells me, but she took the Interstate 5, moving between high school and home, no ID required. ‘Learning to navigate extremes was part of my life and still is: everything gets mixed up, culturally. There’s nothing purist about my work.’

While notions of nationalism and identity are thrown up by the title of Muzquiz’ first major UK show, “California” refers directly to ‘a kind of Freudian narrative’ that emerged as the multi-media artist embarked on this new body of work, comprising twenty-one ceramic vessels and a series of large-scale paintings. She describes vivid recollections of her childhood in the Californian landscape, visits to dilapidated beach clubs and banal shopping malls, and the cacophonous selling of souvenirs at the Mexican border.

‘It was very intense in the car. Objects would appear and disappear at the window – piggy banks, gnomes, Christ figures, Mickey Mouse, and the Virgin of Guadalupe’, an icon invented to persuade the indigenous people to embrace Catholicism, known as the Virgin of the Poor. ‘She was very Mexican, covered in stars and lights. You’re taking it all in super-fast and I guess I repeat that experience as I work, grabbing images, collaging, seeing what works.’

Muzquiz cuts and scores her clay, applying pieces to the vessels like magazine cut-outs, layering colours, patterns, images, tendrils, baubles and pendants to create complex self-portraits so full of movement they are almost performative. This is unsurprising, given the 15 years Muzquiz spent as one half of the art band Los Super Elegantes. Muzquiz and Martiano Lopez-Cortez performed their signature blend of theatre, dance and punk-mariachi-hip-hop at museums, galleries, art fairs and the Whitney Biennale (2004), gaining an international reputation as a must-see art world fixture.

When they split, in 2009, Muzquiz found that ‘it was natural for me to grab a piece of clay and figure out what to do with it.’ Having received her BFA at the California College of Fine Arts, San Francisco, Muzquiz joined the masters programme at the Art Centre, Pasadena, where she was tutored by Mike Kelley. ‘There was a kind of Californian eco-system where we’d visit UCLA and Cal Arts for talks, and guys like Chris Burden, Ed Ruscha and John Baldessari would come to see us. But mostly I was learning from Mike’. Kelley died in 2012, aged 57, and left Muzquiz with ‘a monumental piece of advice: After all the theory he taught me, it was, “Just do something with your hands”. He realised that what mattered most was your relationship with yourself.’

Artists are continually confronted with themselves, says Muzquiz, and California’s wild, ‘non-historical’ landscape provides the requisite freedom for quiet introspection: ‘It is such a contemporary place, you can just carve out your own existence.’ But Muzquiz’ California is complicated, resonant with the loss of its Native American history. ‘California has a shallow surface and beneath it you can feel its ghosts. They are howling and hooting into the night.’ Muzquiz’ cross-border childhood and her capacity for self-reflection are contained in this evocative body of work that makes a political statement almost by default.

GalleriesNow held the inaugural Collect event “Collecting Contemporary to Old Masters” last week at Sotheby’s New Bond Street, with a discussion, drinks and a preview of the Old Masters auction.

Roland Cowan, collector and Outset Trustee, Andrew Fletcher, Head of Department, Old Masters, Sotheby’s, Nazy Vassegh, Strategic Art Adviser and chair Emma Crichton Miller, freelance journalist for the FT and Apollo, discussed how art fairs such as Masterpiece and auction houses like Sotheby’s increasingly encourage and facilitate people to collect different genres side by side.

The debate also looked at the way in which museums and galleries as well as organisations such as Outset support contemporary art shown in classical surroundings, and whether we are witnessing a new fluidity in collecting.

For more information about future GalleriesNow Collect events please email Philippa Hobson.

This inaugural GalleriesNow Collect event is presented in association with Sotheby’s, Outset Contemporary Art and is supported by onefinestay.

David Juda celebrates 50 years working with artists

At Annely Juda Fine Art we have just installed a beautiful exhibition of 50 artists that we have shown over the last 50 years. I do not believe it’s necessary to blow one’s own trumpet as the 50 years just happened, but I am incredibly proud of the artists’ work that we have shown.

50 Years, 50 Artists

50 Years, 50 Artists” at Annely Juda Fine Art“50 Years, 50 Artists” at Annely Juda Fine Art

This exhibition is an incredible mix of Russian Constructivists, de Stijl or Bauhaus next to established and young artists from all over the world.

It marks the rich history of the gallery, which has been a stalwart and influential space for artists and visitors since its opening in Tottenham Mews, central London.

When my mother started the gallery and I joined her in 1968 it had never been important to her where the artist came from and how well known or unknown they were. Our job was to show good art well and if we have somehow succeeded a bit in this, that’s all that’s necessary.

Mai 36 founder Victor Gisler
on 30 years in the art world

30 Years Mai 36 Galerie – As Long As It Lasts

I became a gallerist in 1988 when I stepped beyond being interested in looking at and enjoying the art that I saw in museums and started showing, telling and selling what I liked in contemporary art.

photo of Victor at the Art Cologne Fair in the early 90s

Victor at Art Cologne in the early 90s

Since opening Mai 36 Galerie at Maihofstrasse 36 in Lucerne in February 1988, my goal has always been to exhibit art that I care about deeply, that is new to Switzerland, relevant for the time we live in, and global in its dialogue. I have remained committed to the art I love over all these years and am proud to still be working with a large group of artists today, whom I have already exhibited in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Text-based art and works that address important social, political or cultural issues are probably the categories of art that I love, besides my sincere interest and enthusiasm for photography. Starting a contemporary gallery in the heart of Switzerland - as Lucerne is known as - was not easy at the time, with Basel, Berne and later Zürich being the epicenters of contemporary art in the country.

We went on to establish the gallery in the mid-1990s in Zürich and ever since, through the support of the local and international art community and through participation in international art fairs, have seen a constant growth.

Over the course of three decades, the art world has changed dramatically. Everything has drastically increased in speed. Nowadays everyone knows everyone - and everyone can see everything immediately - no matter where, no matter when. But I still believe it’s crucial to experience art in person. There’s no better way to understand the artists thinking and the ideas or the beauty of what they are doing than by visiting galleries and institutional shows.

I feel lucky and honoured to be able to offer a place and structure:

- to artists where they can show what they do

- to collectors where they can purchase what they enjoy

- to curators where they can discuss

- to critics where they can study

- and to all other art professionals and enthusiasts where they can experience what they love the most: art to be seen for the very first time in a gallery exhibition.

I’m thankful to the artists, who are the heart and mind of the gallery, without whom there would only exist an empty space. I thank you for your courage, trust and belief in us and for all the good times we have together. I’m grateful to the collectors with whom we work and salute you for your confidence and companionship. Mai 36 Galerie would never have lasted three decades without the engagement and contributions of all who have worked with me. I have had the great pleasure and fortune to employ the best of the best and I am very thankful for their hard work, their great spirit, talent and dedication.

David Zwirner director James Green on the UK’s first exhibition of Andrzej Wróblewski

March 23, 2018

picture of the painting Self Portrait in Red by Andrzej Wróblewski

To accompany the exhibition of his work at David Zwirner London, director James Green writes for us about Andrzej Wróblewski.

We, at David Zwirner, are delighted to be presenting the first solo exhibition of Andrzej Wróblewski's (1927–1957) work in the UK. We're showing a group of key paintings and a wide-ranging selection of works on paper detailing recurring subjects from throughout the artist’s oeuvre, which often drew on Poland’s sociopolitical atmosphere in the wake of the Second World War.

portrait of David Zwirner Director James Green

David Zwirner Director James Green

Wróblewski’s practice can be characterised as a unique language of figuration, with some abstract or surreal tendencies, relying on what has been termed the “eye of the soul”; not drawn or painted from life, but experienced even if not seen. He was responsible for a form of “Traumatic Realism”, in stark contrast to the Soviet Realist doctrine that had been declared in Poland in 1949 which was rejected soon after by Wróblewski. He was determined that history, and the trauma carried with it, should not be left in the past.

There is mythic construction of Wróblewski as a self-destructive, melancholic figure who was encroached upon by tragedy from all sides, but this is too simplistic. He had experienced great trauma, but also moments of hopefulness and personal contentment during his short life. The apex of these moments coincided with the political change due the “Thaw” in 1956, following the death of Stalin in 1953, and the birth of Wróblewski's two children.

Wróblewski was “semi-active” as an artist, arguably as a result of the unsettled conditions and difficulties that faced post-war Poland and Europe, and his work was neither ignored nor celebrated. It is not a historic record or archive, but something restorative following the traumatic events in Poland during this period of the 20th century. We hope the exhibition will encourage more dialogue around Wróblewski and reaffirm his importance and contribution to contemporary European figurative painting; not only in relation to artists from Poland and the former Soviet Union, such as Wilhelm Sasnal, but also with regard to figures such as Luc Tuymans and Marlene Dumas.

Le Foyer de l’Art Brut: Jean Dubuffet and his search for artistic truth

 
As part of the first Reading Room series of events at Frieze Masters 2016, GalleriesNow.net co-founder Tristram Fetherstonhaugh and James Brett of The Museum of Everything talk about Jean Dubuffet’s radical Parisian salon Le Foyer de l’Art Brut, and the ways it inspired the artist on his lifetime journey of discovery.

The original Foyer attracted the attention of many of the best known artists and writers of that generation, including people like Joan Miró, Jean Cocteau, Tristan Tzara and André Breton - and the Gallery of Everything’s historical interpretation of the exhibition is part of Sir Norman Rosenthal’s Collections at Frieze Masters 2016.

Royal Academy of Arts Launches the Mayfair and St James's Map in Partnership with GalleriesNow.net

Charles Saumarez Smith, Secretary and Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of Arts, at the breakfast launch

Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 16.02.15The Royal Academy of Arts today launched the Mayfair and St. James’s Map. The complimentary map highlights the area of Mayfair and St. James’s, one of the oldest and most important arts quarters in the world. From the south of St. James’s between Pall Mall and Piccadilly to the north of New Bond Street, the area is home to internationally renowned auction houses and leading art galleries as well as the Royal Academy of Arts.

The map has been produced in collaboration with GalleriesNow.net and features 145 art locations in total, including 139 commercial galleries, 4 auction houses, as well as the Royal Academy and The Photographers’ Gallery. Visitors to the area will be able to pick up a map from each of the listed venues and explore the vibrant breadth of art on display, from works by the Old Masters to today’s contemporary artists. The map will also be available to download from the RA website and GalleriesNow.net.

Charles Saumarez Smith, Secretary and Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of Arts, said: “In the lead up to the Royal Academy’s 250th anniversary and the opening of the Elizabeth Line at Bond Street Station in 2018, we are delighted to be working with the galleries and auction houses in the area, to present the broad range of visual arts Mayfair and St James’s has to offer.”

Notes to Editors:

About the Royal Academy of Arts

The Royal Academy of Arts was founded by King George III of England in 1768. It has a unique position in being an independent, privately funded institution led by eminent artists and architects whose purpose is to be a clear, strong voice for art and artists. Its public programmes promote the creation, enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts through exhibitions, education and debate.

The RA is undergoing a transformative redevelopment which will be completed in time for its 250th anniversary in 2018. Led by the internationally-acclaimed architect Sir David Chipperfield RA and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), the plans will link Burlington House on Piccadilly and Burlington Gardens for the first time, uniting and revitalising the two-acre site. The redevelopment will also reveal the elements that make the RA unique, sharing with the public the historic treasures in its Collection, the work of its Academicians and the RA Schools, alongside its world-class exhibitions programme.

GalleriesNow.net announces New York ArtMap in
collaboration with Frieze New York art fair
GalleriesNow, the one-stop guide to the leading art exhibitions and galleries across the globe, is delighted to announce it has published, in collaboration with Frieze, the essential guide to art in New York during Frieze week.

The Frieze New York map follows the success of GalleriesNow’s London ArtMap, which was produced with Frieze for the London edition of the fair in 2015. The New York version includes information on exhibitions at more than 100 galleries.

The map will be distributed widely – at the VIP desks, at the VIP reception in the Surrey Hotel, in the exhibitors’ welcome packs and the exhibitors’ lounge, as well as in all the galleries and partner hotels. Additionally, GalleriesNow.net will list all the important events taking place during the fair week.

Says co-founder and director Tristram Fetherstonhaugh: ‘Our city guide shows you where all the major galleries are and what they will be showing during Frieze. It will be an invaluable guide to the city during the fair and a useful resource afterwards.’

GalleriesNow.net was launched in 2014 and works with the world’s leading galleries, including Gagosian, David Zwirner, Lisson Gallery, Blain|Southern, T293, Rodeo, Galerie Eva Presenhuber and Michael Werner Gallery.
