Il y a du Duchamp dans les toiles de Félix Vallotton !

Il y a du Duchamp dans les toiles de Félix Vallotton ! | What's new in Fine Arts? | Scoop.it

Le Grand Palais, à Paris, consacre une rétrospective au peintre et graveur qui a poussé à l'extrême les limites de son art. Félix Vallotton est un peintre et graveur, écrivain parfois, né en Suisse, à Lausanne, en 1865, mort en 1925 à Paris.

ECAL Library's insight:

As the first retrospective to be dedicated to Felix Vallotton in nearly fifty years, the exhibition will revisit this artist's work from a unique angle. It will be organized around ten aptly titled themes, evoking not only the aesthetic, social and political concerns that fed his creativity, but also his complex personality.  - See more at: http://www.grandpalais.fr/en/event/felix-vallotton-fire-under-ice#sthash.a0pfUQkP.dpuf

Duane Hanson's hyperreal sculptures question how we address the world

Duane Hanson's hyperreal sculptures question how we address the world | What's new in Fine Arts? | Scoop.it

Walking through the doors of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery you’re instantly met by Duane Hanson’s Flea Market Lady parading her worldly belongings in a yard sale. You expect her to look up and acknowledge your arrival, but she remains still. Even though you know she’s a mixed media amalgamation of oil, bronze and plastic, a part of you still expects her to glance away from her magazine. This unnerving feeling follows you throughout the Duane Hanson retrospective and his sculptures exude such an overwhelming presence it’s both captivating and unsettling.

Nicolas Party at Inverleith House (Edinburgh)

Nicolas Party at Inverleith House (Edinburgh) | What's new in Fine Arts? | Scoop.it

Inverleith House is delighted to present Nicolas Party, Boys and Pastel, the first major solo exhibition in a UK public gallery by the Swiss artist (b.1980, Lausanne. Lives and works in Brussels, Belgium).

For Boys and Pastel, Nicolas Party has transformed the formal Georgian interior of Inverleith House into a contemporary ‘gesamtkunstwerk’ with the most expansive installation of his decorative wall paintings to date, spanning every available inch of the seven gallery spaces, and also encompassing the stairwells and corridors of the House. These patterned murals act as a framing device and wondrous stage set for a new series of pastel compositions and charcoal drawings delivered in Party’s unique aesthetic language. Party will also present a selection of rarely seen short films.

Barbara Kasten at ICA Philadelphia

Barbara Kasten at ICA Philadelphia | What's new in Fine Arts? | Scoop.it

Barbara Kasten: Stages situates Kasten’s work within current conversations around sculpture, abstraction, and photography, tracing its roots to the unique and provocative intersection of Bauhaus-influenced pedagogy in America, the California Light and Space movement, and postmodernism. Kasten’s concern with the interplay between three-dimensional and two-dimensional forms, her interest in staging and the role of the prop, her cross-disciplinary process, and the way she has developed new approaches to abstraction and materiality are all intensely relevant to the present artistic moment. Pushing her work forward, she is constantly folding older concerns into new contexts, as energized by the ideas and innovations of her younger artistic peers as they are by hers.

“Storylines: Contemporary Art at the Guggenheim” opened last weekend at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (on view through September 9). The exhibition consists of over 100 works and delves into the thematic storytelling behind the museum’s contemporary collection. Spanning multiple mediums, the show’s theme follows the narrative of each work’s creation, with 48 writers penning responses to individual pieces within the exhibit. “When the curators were looking at the museum’s collection there were threads of narration that embody all the chosen work,” said Nat Trotman, Associate Curator.

An older generation of artists takes the spotlight at the 56th Venice Biennale

An older generation of artists takes the spotlight at the 56th Venice Biennale | What's new in Fine Arts? | Scoop.it

Jonas Mekas, herman de vries, and Joan Jonas have long influenced the art world. While theirs might not be household names—perhaps thanks to their experimental, often uncategorizable practices—each artist has pioneered new approaches to art-making, inspired peers, and played hero to younger artists. This year—at ages 92, 83, and 79 respectively—Mekas, de vries, and Jonas bring new projects to Venice that remind us of their influential, endlessly regenerative work. Here, they step away from the Biennale crowds to ponder what drives their more than 50-year-long careers, namely: curiosity, community, and the allure of everyday life.

5 Latin American Artists You Need to Know (And Buy)

5 Latin American Artists You Need to Know (And Buy) | What's new in Fine Arts? | Scoop.it

There is a lot of discussion about what it means to be a Latin American artist, and the main question that comes out of this discussion is: Can all artists from this section of the globe be lumped into one cohesive group? Obviously, it would be wrong to reduce such a diverse mix of artists to one category or style. With Latin American auctions just having taken in place in May, we thought it an opportune time to take a look at the artists you should be keeping an eye on. As you will see, their practices are as diverse as the countries they hail from.
