The Met Museum Presents FATAL ATTRACTION: PIOTR UKLANSKI PHOTOGRAPHS, 3/17-8/16The Met Museum Presents FATAL ATTRACTION: PIOTR UKLANSKI PHOTOGRAPHS, 3/17-8/16
by BWW News Desk - Mar 4, 2015

Fatal Attraction: Piotr Ukla?ski Photographs at The Metropolitan Museum of Art will be the first survey of this provocative artist's photography. Known for working in a wide variety of media including installation, fiber art, resin paintings, and collage, Ukla?ski (born 1968) invests overlooked and exhausted styles with new meanings. This Polish-born, New York-based artist similarly explores clichéd or obsolete photographic languages. Nearly half of the works on display in the Metropolitan Museum's exhibition will be from The Joy of Photography (1997-2007), the artist's seminal yet under-known series, in which he adopted the hackneyed subjects and styles of Eastman Kodak's 1979 how-to book for amateur photographers to create a rapturous ode to the medium, both ironic and sincere.

by Don Grigware - Feb 9, 2015

It all started simply enough when Dick Cavett invited author/critic Mary McCarthy on his PBS talk show on January 25, 1980. What resulted from a completely unplanned remark was one of the biggest literary feuds in history. McCarthy, when asked by Cavett to mention questionable authors at the time, is quoted as responding about the dishonesty of Lillian Hellman 'Every word she writes is a lie, including 'and' and 'the'. Hellman just happened to be watching the TV program and proceeded to sue McCarthy, Cavett and the network for over a million dollars. (more...)

Hixenbaugh Ancient Art Presents the Face of AntiquityHixenbaugh Ancient Art Presents the Face of Antiquity
by BWW News Desk - Feb 7, 2015

Hixenbaugh Ancient Art is pleased to announce its inaugural show 'the face of antiquity.' The exhibition explores the widely varied depictions of the human face in ancient art. The show includes images produced by artists from various ancient European, North African, Western Asian, South American and Central American cultures in a variety of artistic media. The iconography of the human face in antiquity ran the gamut from idealized depictions of the divine to unflattering realistic Portraits of mortals. Some of the Portraits on view are of known individuals, such as the comic playwright Menander, while the identities of others are now lost to time. Playful images that adorned containers or children's playthings are on display alongside images of more serious connotations. The images range from secular to religious, from beautiful to frightful, realistic to idealized, but all convey a notion of the importance of the human face in art from its earliest beginnings. Over 90 ancient objects are on display including a remarkable Roman marble portrait of a Severan period woman, an exquisite Egyptian red glass head, a beautiful Greek Attic female head oinochoe, a substantial Egyptian wooden anthropomorphic sarcophagus lid, a graceful Cycladic Greek marble head, a haunting pair of Nazca trophy head vessels and a dazzling Inca gold mask. Large works such as mosaics and statuary are on view alongside miniature treasures including gems, jewelry and coins. Hixenbaugh Ancient Art's inaugural exhibition 'the face of antiquity' will run through March 28, 2015 and can be viewed at its New York gallery Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 6pm. An additional collection of fine quality authentic antiquities can be viewed on their web site (www.hixenbaugh.net). About Hixenbaugh Ancient Art Hixenbaugh Ancient Art Ltd, located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, is dedicated to handling fine authentic antiquities (Greek, Egyptian, Judean, Near Eastern, Ancient European, Ancient Mediterranean, Pre-Columbian and Roman Art). All of the pieces we handle are legally acquired, in complete accordance with US and international regulations and laws concerning the import and sale of ancient objects. All objects are guaranteed genuine and as described. Hixenbaugh Ancient Art is a member of the Art and Antique Dealers League of America (AADLA), the Confederation Internationale des Negociants en Oeuvres d'Art (CINOA), the Appraisers Association of America (AAA), and the International Association of Dealers in Ancient Art (IADAA). At Hixenbaugh Ancient Art, we believe that responsible collecting of antiquities is not only a pleasurable pursuit and wise investment, but an important responsibility. Today's collectors are custodians of the past, links in a chain, preserving the past for future generations by passing their collections on to their heirs, reselling them to eager collectors, or donating them to museums. In doing so, the collector of ancient art reaps the many benefits of acquiring truly unique and thought provoking objects that have come down to us from the ancients, whose influences pervade every aspect of the modern world.

by BWW News Desk - Feb 26, 2015

Elaine de Kooning made both abstract and figurative paintings and drawings during the height of Abstract Expressionism in New York City. Fairfield Porter once commented that de Kooning's images of men, for which she is best known, were “both sympathetic and frighteningly acute.” De Kooning's gestural Portraits of friends and family were much admired during her lifetime and included such well-known Americans as President John F. Kennedy, poets Frank O'Hara and Allen Ginsberg, critic Harold Rosenberg, choreographer Merce Cunningham and painters Willem de Kooning and Fairfield Porter. In her Portraits, Elaine de Kooning sought the “instantaneous illumination” of recognition and worked to capture that moment. She characterized her Portraits of John F. Kennedy as “a glimpse” of the president through an accumulation of sketches and finished likenesses. (more...)

Zimmerli Art Museum to Display New George Segal Exhibit, 2/14Zimmerli Art Museum to Display New George Segal Exhibit, 2/14
by BWW News Desk - Feb 10, 2015

New Brunswick, NJ – The inside of the artist's studio is seldom seen by the broader public. But the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers offers its audiences this rare opportunity through the exhibition George Segal in Black and White: Photographs by Donald Lokuta, which opens February 14, 2015. The show is accompanied by a catalogue of the same title. Lokuta met Segal in 1984 at the sculptor's studio, located on his family's farm in South Brunswick. The photographer soon returned to shoot a professional portrait, sparking an artistic alliance that would engage him for more than 16 years and result in nearly 15,000 negatives. The first selection of this two-part exhibition, through May 16, considers Segal inside and beyond his studio (with friends, family, and models), as well as the studio itself as subject. The second installment, on view May 23 to July 31, focuses on Segal at work on his iconic figures. The public is invited to Art After Hours: First Tuesdays on March 3 for a curator-led tour of the exhibition, as well as an opportunity to meet Donald Lokuta. The evening also features live music and Slide Jam, as well as the talk “Vision Research: Interactions between Scientists and Artists,” presented by Thomas Papathomas, who is a Rutgers Professor and the Busch Campus Dean.
