Calligraffiti: 1984-2013 placed Leila Heller Gallery at the forefront of art news when it announced a reimagination of Jeffrey Deitch’s popular 1984 exhibition by the same name. The gallery penned press releases touting the former MOCA curator’s return to the New York art scene, underscoring his assistance in the compiling of Calligraffiti’s 2013 reboot. An introductory quotation by Deitch asserts the importance of this artistic thread, stating that, “A calligraphic impu... [more]

Cy Twombly, it's been my experience, was always at a distance. Most of his life, he lived across the world in whitewashed ancient cities. I never met the man, but all accounts point to a dignified august presence. To me, he’s a fantasy of a Roman poet with a bearing full of nature and wind but also philosophy and silence. His paintings, at least institutionally, have at the moment a certified “you have to like this” air that often makes it exponentially more difficult to see them. I remember being in a collecto...

I remember visiting a big retrospective in Milan, which featured lots of paintings and imagery by David Lynch. Clearly the usual haunted-sofa kind of vibe you would expect from such a show was there, but the raw stillness of those images was in sharp contrast with the artist's films. In the end, to me the highlight of the show was a series of rather amateurish photoshop distortions of old pictures, which – I remember – sort of clicked in my head with Inland Empire's digital aesthetics, definite...

Introduction to Fisher Collection and the 75th Anniversary Exhibit at SFMOMA Last Saturday, I visited San Francisco Modern Art Museum for the Calder to Warhol: Introducing the Fisher Collection exhibit. There are 160 pieces from the 1,000 plus Fisher Colletions on display. There were many impressive works and the profile and prestige of SFMOMA will increase dramatically once a new wing is build for this incredibly rich modern art collection.Several of my favorite artists are included and I...

Many in the art world are bemoaning the gradual extinction of the museum as a public institution, fearing its replacement by flashy private vanity projects that house even flashier collections funded by a seemingly endless influx of cash. And even those public institutions left standing are swiftly altering their operational models, shifting towards slicker, privatized programming to attract all the foot traffic that money can buy (the recent Dakis exhibition at the New Museum, for inst...

Posted 4/19/10

Many of the grand rooms and galleries of the Musée du Louvre have elaborately painted ceilings, scenes of fabled passions or legendary battles that float over the art below like an exuberant, if silent, paean to accomplishments real or imagined. You become almost used to these massive works above you, these amatory putti and mythologized aristocrats hovering out of reach like an unattainable dream while you peer at the paintings and furniture that line the walls and fill the rooms at a...

  Saturday, May 16th, marked the inaugural opening of the Modern Wing, but it also premiered the exhibition, "Cy Twombly: The Natural World, Selected Works 2000-2007".  Located in the new Modern Wing, in the Abbott Galleries  off of Griffin Court, the exhibition features over 30 works by the artist.  The collection of work showcases more recent developments by the artist over the past decade.  The body of work is monumental in size and meaning, a fitting exhibition for Renzo Piano's profound space....

6 Cy Twombly, 'infinitely at ease'.  
by
Cy Twombly at Gagosian Gallery - Britannia Street February 12th, 2009 - May 9th, 2009
Posted 3/24/09

  It seems to me that Cy Twombly has achieved a kind of epiphany in this new work. Following on from the Blooming series of 2007, The Rose series, painted last year in Gaeta and now showing at Gagosian London, not only embodies the late flowering of a long and complex career but also represents the most dramatic kind of affirmation of painting’s continuing power and promise. Jonathan Jones (in The Guardian 2/2/09) compares the impact of seeing them with the experience of encountering Titian’s late work for the first time. It must have been the same too with Monet and his last great waterlily... [more]

  If you see one exhibition in London this year, make it "Cy Twombly's Cycles and Seasons" at the Tate Modern. As a lover of painting, and particularly, artists who make it their life's work to explore the properties of paint on a canvas, I am somewhat biased towards this exhibition. That said, I have seen many of the Tate Modern's temporary exhibitions since it opened in 2000 and few have been as profound as this one. The exhibition gives an overview of Twombly's development as a painter from s... [more]
