[ART] In The Labyrinth

Posted August 2nd by in Art, Culture

The exhibition by Àngels Ribé at the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, covers a period of her production from 1969 to 1984. This period is particularly significant for it marks the appearance of a new aesthetic model that would have a fundamental influence on the creation of new ways of conceiving the artistic practice. The associative and symbolic functions of art are renegotiated: the artwork ceases to be an autonomous entity, as was the norm in the modernist tradition, and its meaning becomes dependent on an interchange with the spectator. In this way, the ambiguity and the multiplicity of references and readings that are an intrinsic part of the work of art are revealed. Àngels Ribé, having begun her artistic career at that time and within those parameters, consolidated a language of her own that has continued until today through various supports and media.  In the labyrinth. Àngels Ribé, 1969-1984 in on view until October 23.


Richard Phillips: Point of Purchase

Posted August 1st by in Art, Culture

“My pictures involve a kind of wasted beauty – that’s always been a thread in my work.”  - Richard Phillips

Richard Phillips’ tongue in cheek, slightly pornographic, gritty, but oxymoronically glossy paintings have made him an artist among elite of pop art’s Mount Olympus that includes the like of Evelyne Axell  and pop art’s Zeus Andy Warhol. Richard Phillips was born in Marblehead, Massachusetts in 1962 and now lives and works in New York.  On view for another week at John McWhinnie bookstore in East Hampton, NY is Point of Purchase, “the first full-scale presentation of [Richard Phillips'] commercial interventions.” John McWhinnie: “Phillips extends his brand of artmaking into the non-gallery world, colonizing commercial space, manipulating products and displays, from album covers and posters to designer handbags and beach towels.” On view until August 8

Ship of Fools

Posted July 29th by in Art

As Fall approaches its tachiagari time over at Dover Street Market . This window display by Matt Clark, entitled “Ship of Fools,” is “…based upon his interest in narrative, this piece began as a simple play on words. Depicting the human condition, it is a sculpture inspired by sculpture.”

Sigmar Polke: Photoworks

Posted July 27th by in Art

Leo Koenig Inc. (NYC), in collaboration with Winckler Fine Arts, Berlin, presents the opening of “Sigmar Polke: Photoworks 1964-2000″. “Widely acknowledged as one of the most important creative forces to emerge from post World War II Europe, Sigmar Polke was an artist of incredible unpredictability. From the very beginning, and throughout his career, Polke resisted the idea of an identifying “signature.” In his practice, the artist incorporated techniques borrowed from mass marketing and commercial realms into a proscenium of images that overlap and resonate over time.  Over the course of his life, Polke made thousands of photographs and the selection of works for this exhibition keenly highlights the integral role that photography had played in the artist’s larger oeuvre.  Also included is an eerie selection of photographs taken at the Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo, and a series of photograms in which Polke experimented with, among other untried techniques, the effects of radioactive materials on the photographic process. On view until September 3 at Leo Koenig NYC.

To Love the Glove….

Posted July 25th by in Art, Fashion

Armor glove–a collaboration between jeweler Shaun Leane and Daphne Guinness–encrusted  with 18-carat hand cut diamonds.  Guinness: “The detail in its design is hugely symbolic. The birds with which it is embellished denote freedom from the material world. The gold from which it is molded was thought to have magical powers. Like the knights of my childhood daydreams, this beautiful glove is resilient and beautiful, strong despite its finery.”
