IT'S USELESS TO BE YOUNG WITHOUT BEING BEAUTIFUL AND VICE VERSA

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: REINCARNATION

Warhol thought it would have been very glamorous to be reincarnated as a big diamond on Elizabeth Taylor's finger. Maybe Liz secretly wished to be reincarnated as very glamorous Warhol painting to be sold at Sotheby's after all...

THE BEAUTY OBSESSION

«Some people think it's easier for beauties, but actually it can work out a lot of different ways. If you're beautiful you might have a pea-brain. If you're not beautiful you might not have a pea-brain, so it depends on the pea-brain and the beauty. The size of the beauty. And the pea-brain.»

What creates these astounding values in contemporary art?  

Well, one thing is supply and demand. But the other thing is ambition. The great dealers are the ones who bring out the ambition in collectors. You want to compete. You want to be part of those artists who will make history.

«IT'S CALLED GOSSIP AND OF COURSE IT'S AN OBSESSION OF MINE»

Since Elizabeth Taylor passed away earlier this week, it seems that almost everything in the news has been about her. Now, it seems that Andy Warhol portraits of the actress are in high demand. One is expected to sell for upwards of $30 million.
It was reported that a picture of Taylor will sell at a Christie’s art auction in New York in May, and the expected profits from this painting are expected to be around $30 million. However, it seems that the decision to put the painting up for auction was not directly related to Taylor’s death. The owner, who purchased the silk screen in 2005, says that he made the decision a few weeks before Taylor passed away. Regardless, her recent publicity will likely draw more attention to the painting and could even bring a bigger price.

ELIZABETH TAYLOR

Now Elizabeth Taylor's persona was at first a continuation of Ava Gardner's. They had a natural lustiness and spontaneity, an animal magnetism, though both Ava and Elizabeth at the beginning of their careers didn't have command of basic technical skills, particularly dialogue. That's what people laud Meryl Streep for -- "Oh, her accents are so great; oh, her articulation is so perfect." But she doesn't really live in her characters, she merely costumes them. Meryl Streep is always doing drag. But it's so superficial. It all comes from the brain, not the heart or body.

«I NEVER READ. I JUST LOOK AT PICTURES»

CHARLIE SHEEN TRAINWRECK

«In celebrity culture we destroy what we worship," wrote Pulitzer Prize winning author Chris Hedges.

DAVID HOCKNEY

“If the Egyptian army had started shooting at the crowd in Tahrir Square,” says David Hockney, “it would have been hard to keep that secret because people had mobile phones. They could have described what was happening by text and sent a picture. That is, confirmation.”Right now, we are seeing just such images of state violence in Libya.There has been plenty of debate about the causes of the events rippling across the Middle East. The basic factors, of course, are the courage, anger and frustration of the populations involved. Social media such as Facebook and Twitter are believed to have played a role in spreading information. Hockney, as a visual artist, suggests another important element is involved: namely, pictures.
Indeed, he sees pictures -- or, to be precise, control of the display and distribution of images -- as an overlooked factor in history. Hockney, 73, argues that this always has been a source of political and religious power.

 PARIS, March 19, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- According to Thierry Ehrmann, founder and CEO of Artprice, world leader in art market information, "this unprecedented news represents a turning point in the history of the global art market: China is now the number 1 in terms of Fine art auction revenue." It took just three years for China to jump from third place (previously occupied by France) in 2007 to first place in 2010, ahead of the UK and the USA, the grand masters of the market since the 1950s. To reverse the polarity of the global art market from West to East, China has done without artifices such as hypothetical figures from art galleries ( an opaque market compared to public auctions) or even that of furniture or traditional Chinese art objects (the prices of which are shooting up worldwide). Since the 1950s, the reference ranking for the art market has been that of Fine Art at Public Auctions.

As part of the Cultural Olympiad and the , the Tate Modern is planning a retrospective of British artist Damien Hirst to show from 5 April through 9 September 2012. The exhibit is the first “substantial survey” of the sometimes-controversial artist’s career, the museum said. It will feature his most iconic pieces of work, including The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (see above). Alongside the Hirst retrospective at the Tate Modern is Tino Segal’s commissioned work for the museum’s Turbine Hall, and an exhibition on Edvard Munch.

Pace will represent Mr. Gréaud in New York, Beijing and its new gallery, which is to open in London next year. Yvon Lambert will still represent Mr. Gréaud in Paris

BIELEFELD.- On Sunday, March 13, 2011, the Kunsthalle Bielefeld will open its newest exhibition, The 80s Revisited: The Bischofberger Collection II. This show marks the apex of our two-part presentation of works by the most important painters of the 1980s, on loan from the private collection of Swiss art dealer Bruno Bischofberger.While the first part focused mainly on works by young German and Italian artists, the second part concentrates on major figures from the New York art scene. Andy Warhol is represented by numerous works, as is Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, George Condo, David Salle, Mike Bidlo, and Miquel Barceló. The “Collaborations” by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Francesco Clemente, and Andy Warhol (which Bischofberger began commissioning in 1984) will also be shown. Here, the differences and similarities among the artists are particularly obvious.

(Reuters Life!) - Jeff Koons' iconic "Pink Panther" sculpture is hitting the auction block in May and could sell for as much as $30 million, which would be a record for the artist, Sotheby's said on Friday.The 1988 porcelain sculpture of a semi-naked blonde woman cuddling a large pink panther toy is the artist's proof from an edition of only three, according to the auction house. The others are in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art and a private U.S. collection. It is expected to be one of the highlights of Sotheby's contemporary art auction on May 10.

The rumour mill is grinding after the death of Greek collector Georges Embiricos, whose holdings include one of the greatest modern paintings still in private hands, Cézanne’s “The Card Players” (1902). The work is hugely important, the last in a series depicting seated peasants, deeply absorbed in their game: three of the series were recently shown at the Courtauld Institute in London.According to a number of accounts from within the trade, Embiricos’s version might already have been sold. But to whom? There’s the question. One rumour has it that Gagosian has bought the collection (the gallery did not respond to a request for comment), while another mentions Qatar (which never comments on art acquisitions).“The field is open,” says one private dealer. “For such a great work, there are quite a few buyers who would be desperate to get it. It’s a holy grail, and it’s worth far, far more than the current world record for any work of art.”

On Sunday the small auction house Los Angeles Modern Auctions is selling off decorative art from the estate of the Californian computer pioneer Max Palevsky, who died last year aged 85. The art in his collection was cherry-picked by Christie’s – Lichtenstein’s “Girl in Mirror” made nearly $5m in New York last year – but there was plenty more in Palevsky’s three homes. He had a particular affinity for the Italian designer Ettore Sottsas, whom he commissioned to make numerous works. Now all this comes under the hammer, with no reserves and “come hither” estimates: offerings include an elegant veined marble entry table ($3,000-$5,000) and boxy leather lounge chairs (two, $2,500-$3,500). And in the same sale is a group of works from the estate of museum curator James Brynes, which includes Alexander Calder’s untitled drawing of a mobile from 1953 (est. $15,000-$20,000).

With fluctuating currency levels, volatile stock markets and widespread inflation concerns, art is increasingly seen as a safe asset. “This idea is spreading,” says Fred Alger, a former Wall Street tycoon and co-founder of new publication The Art Economist. “There is no question that both the rising stars and the established ones represent a fine store of value.” Events this week are focusing on this potential, including the panel discussion “Everything you can’t afford to not know about art as an investment”, due to be hosted on Wednesday morning by Montage Finance. “There will be plenty of bankers in the room,” said Montage founder, and former hedge-funder, James Hedges, prior to the event. The increased liquidity and confidence of the city’s financiers does not, however, necessarily mean a gold rush at the 13 New York fairs this week and numerous gallery shows. “You’re either an art buyer or you’re not,” says McCormack.

ANGEL ORTIZ

Angel Ortiz should be recognized as one of the most important and successful Puerto Rican artists to emerge from the Lower East Side in the 20th century. Ortiz’s work, without attribution, is privately held, as well as featured in museum collections. His images appear in books and are licensed to products, again without his permission or knowledge. In other words, Ortiz has been consistently shunned by the art world. In 1982 at Keith’s and LA’s first high-profile show at Tony Shafrazi, the gallery cataloged it as a Keith Haring solo exhibition, although LA II had a number of pieces in the exhibition, again without credit.After Haring’s untimely death, the Whitney Museum of American Art curated a solo Keith Haring exhibition. Angel Ortiz went on the museum tour reviewing the installation. The group was standing in front of a Haring/LA II collaboration that was erroneously attributed solely to Keith Haring. LA asked, “Who is LA II?” The uneducated (or uninformed) museum guide answered: “A black artist who is dead.” However, Ortiz contradicted him, declaring to the group, “I am that person.” But, the Whitney tour guide did not let Ortiz continue; instead, he was promptly escorted out of museum.

SHOWING OFF FOR 15 MINUTES OF FAME

PhILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: LOVE

The surest way for a young person to sound dumb is to ask to be loved for something else that his/her body.

FRAN LEBOWITZ

In this brief documentary, mistress of brevity Lebowitz, ever loyal to her familiar sartorial uniform of white shirt/man-tailored jacket/slacks, holds forth with blunt commentary about the human condition and how things work. Culture, she believes, is “an aristocracy of talent” and wit surpasses humor because it is judgment, short, and “has an assumption to it.”Having children apparently undercuts the effectiveness of women professionally: “Once a woman has a baby,” opines Lebowitz, “she is so interested in it. Do you want her for your lawyer?” Also not likely to win her conventional fans, she is a believer in revenge, not forgiveness, because the latter is “such a Christian thing.” She decries the term “car bomb” as a redundancy because cars with gasoline are simply bombs, ready to explode.

Opposition to Hirst and to the YBAs in general came from three main sources: red-top rags like The Daily Mail, grumpy critics like Brian Sewell, and 'The Stuckists', an artistic movement founded in 1999 by Billy Childish and Charles Thomson.Three main lines of attack have been used against Hirst: firstly that he is simply out to shock; secondly that he doesn't really produce much of the work himself; and thirdly that putting a cow in a gallery is 'just not art'. But the greats of Renaissance art had legions of assistants to help them out: nobody seems to complain about them. And the 'just not art' issue had already been addressed by dada about 80 years previously.Whatever one's view, there's no question that alongside Warhol, Bacon and Picasso, Hirst will be remembered as one of the most significant names in Twentieth Century art.

In film, the love triangle is pretty common, from John Hughes to Godard and Truffaut, but there's something different going on here. What is it?

XD : It's not a tribute to Jules and Jim. My movie isn't a love triangle; it's a love duel. There's a dead angle in the film. I have a strange relationship with influences because mine are mostly literary or painters or poets, who I'll even quote. I don't do tributes to cinema. Nico is an image: He's absolutely banal and uninteresting and uncharismatic, no depth. That was voluntary. We're obsessed with images of love and not with individuals most of the time. For me, he's like a painting, a sculpture. And when the characters are looking at him and they see images of Cocteau drawings or Michelangelo's David, what I want to say is that they're really infatuated with their perception of love and the idea of loving someone so attractive, but they know nothing about this guy.
