STUDIO 54

200 people gathered at Palm Beach’s Modern Auctions yesterday to bid on the treasures of the legendary New York nightclub, Studio 54. Thousands of items were up for bid which had previously belonged to Bill Hamilton, the companion of the 1970s nightclub owner Steve Rubell. Other photographs taken at Studio 54 included celebrities such as Cher, Sylvester Stallone, Brooke Shields, and Calvin Klein. Tommy Morrison, a 31-year-old Palm Beach collector, spent $7,000 in only the first hour on photographs. A famous photo of Rubell, Warhol, Shields and Klein was one of the many photos Morrison took home for $1,800. Photographs of socialites and celebrities, letters, and artwork were many of the items auctioned off on Saturday by auctioneer, Rico Bacca. Popular items included a photo of bartender Sal DeFalco with Graces Jones, which went for $1500, a collection of six record albums from the DJ booth in Studio 54 for $450, and an invitation to Studio 54’s New Year’s Eve party from 1981 for $1,500. Photographs of celebrities at Studio 54 in the late 1970s were the biggest hit at the event, with many photographic collectors in attendance. A Polaroid of Rubell and Grace Jones taken by Andy Warhol brought in the most money at the auction, being sold at $10,000.

ART CRITIC 101

Keith Haring art was interesting in the 1980's. It's still interesting in 2013.
Francesco Clemente art was not interesting in the 1980's. It's still not interesting today....

RÉVÉLATEUR....

Bien que englobant une définition parfois arbitraire de «Graffiti artists» le fait que Keith Haring et Jean Michel Basquiat soient aujourd'hui les plus célèbres et les mieux cotés de ces derniers sur le marché de l'art n'est pas anodin. Tout deux furent amis de Madonna dans le New York du début des années 1980, puis tous deux furent étroitement associés à Warhol par la suite.  Ainsi fonctionne aujourd'hui en partie la dite valeur historique d'un artiste et son importance dans l'histoire de l'art...

HIGHLY WARHOLIAN

A Brazilian woman has been accused of trying to kill her husband by putting poison in her vagina and asking him to have oral sex with her. The intended victim — identified only as a 43-year-old man from Sao de Jose Rio Preto – knew something was going on when he noticed an unfamiliar odor coming from his wife’s freshly poisoned nether region. But here’s the thing about vaginas, as this woman soon learned: They are very porous. Realizing that his wife was probably absorbing a majority of the poison she had intended tokill him with, he brought her to the hospital and saved her life. This guy! He is totally down to perform oral sex 24/7 and will generously rush you to the emergency room after you try to kill him. And they say chivalry is dead! But he is nobody’s fool: Sources reveal the man intends to sue his wife for attempted murder.

«I LIKE MONEY ON THE WALL»


From a tale of two cities to a tale of two continents
Since 2011, 45% of the proceeds from worldwide auctions of contemporary art have been achieved in Asia. Of course, a large proportion of these sales are made in Beijing and Hong Kong (76%), but other cities such as Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul and Taipei are now producing higher sales volumes than traditional marketplaces such as Paris, Berlin, Milan and Geneva. Today, more contemporary art is sold in Taipei than in 49 of the USA's 50 states put together (excluding only New York State). The emergence of Asia is not only important in that it is a growth driver for the global art market, but it also raises some interesting questions about a new economic multipolarity. Ten years ago, 80% of the art market was dominated by London and New York, with a few other cities being left to pick up the crumbs. But since 2011 the spread of the contemporary art market has grown exponentially. From 2011 to the present day, over a million dollars' worth of contemporary art has gone under the hammer each year in 40 cities. These not only include the traditional centres of New York, London, Paris, Beijing and Hong Kong but also Seoul, Berlin, Singapore, Brussels, Jakarta, Amsterdam, Melbourne, Taipei, Tokyo and Hangzhou, to name but a few. Half of the top 40 marketplaces in the world are now in Asia.

MADONNA ET WARHOL

«À première vue Madonna collait parfaitement à l'univers underground, sexuellement ambigu, ostensiblement choquant de Warhol. Mais Warhol qui avait pourtant lui-même débuté modestement en Pennsylvanie, ne l'accepta jamais dans sa cour. Elle était à part, pas simplement parce qu'elle venait 
d'un petit bled ou qu'elle aurait eu moins de talent que les autres, mais parce qu'elle s'était construit 
des limites derrière lesquelles elle se retranchait pour survivre. À moins peut-être qu'il ait senti qu'elle
avait plus de talent que la plupart de ses hôtes»

Castelli didn't open his own gallery — actually, a converted bedroom in his Upper East Side apartment — until 1957, and it was another year before he made his biggest splash, the first solo exhibition of a promising Southerner not yet 30: Jasper Johns. Castelli had seen his work in a group show at New York's pioneering Jewish Museum, but the "discovery" came only when Castelli was taking a studio tour of another young Southerner who'd also shown in the museum's exhibition: Rauschenberg. The two artists (neither Jewish) were neighbors and shared a fridge. When Castelli wanted ice in his drink, there was Johns, surrounded by his painted flags and targets and alphabets. Castelli signed them both.

«OHHHH ELIZABETH TAYLOR OHHHH SHE'S SO GLAMOROUS»

But Elizabeth Taylor's maternal quality is central to her heterosexual power. Elizabeth Taylor could control men. She liked men. And men liked her. There was a chemistry between her and men, coming from her own maternal instincts. I've been writing about this for years, and it was partly inspired by watching Taylor operate on-screen and off. The happy and successful heterosexual woman feels tender and maternal toward men -- but this has been completely lost in our feminist era. Now women tell men, you have to be my companion and be just like a woman; be my best friend, and listen to me chatter. In other words, women don't really like men anymore -- they want men to be like women. But Elizabeth Taylor liked men, and men loved to be around her because they sensed that.

Oligarchs and other super-rich investors are 'bulk buying' new art and destroying the middle market for artists, a panel of experts claimed yesterday. And they said a new 'Premier League' of art galleries and buyers fuelled by new wealth money was emerging, leaving smaller galleries and artists fighting for crumbs. Multi-billionaires such as Mexican magnate Carlos Slim and Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich have so much money that they need to exercise little judgement when buying art.Instead they can purchase the work of any promising young artists for high prices and gamble on one or two of them becoming a success. But the 'spray and pray' approach to buying art among the super-rich has out-priced traditional middle-market art buyers like doctors and lawyers. The knock-on effect is being felt by smaller galleries and the artists they represent, where interest from traditional middle income investors has waned. The panel discussing changes in the art world at the Institute of Contemporary Art on The Mall in Central London on Friday also said some of the top gallery owners were guilty of deliberately inflating the art market around a few blue chip artists, while neglecting to "nurture" the rest.

Repealing a ban on women drivers in Saudi Arabia would result in people turning gay, religious leaders in that country have warned. According to a “scientific” report released by Muslim scholars at the Majlis al-lfta' al-A'ala religious council, the nation's top religious authority, lifting the ban on female drivers would result in “no more virgins” and Saudis would increasingly turn to homosexuality and pornography.According to the UK's Daily Mail, the study was delivered to members of the Shura Council, Saudi Arabia's legislative body, last year.Women on the road would “provoke a surge in prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce,” the report's authors wrote. Virginity would be a thing of the past within ten years.As evidence, the report included the observations of Professor Subhi.“All the women were looking at me,” Subhi wrote of his experience sitting in a coffee shop in an Arab state where women are allowed to drive. “One made a gesture that made it clear she was available. … This is what happens when women are allowed to drive.”

AMERICA GOT TALENT!

A nation governed by reason should include in its constitution a provision against the supervision of beauty contests by women. Women dominate the executive direction and management of the Miss America contest, and they have of course, ruined it. When it began it was fairly simple: good-looking girls in bathing suit paraded before judges until one of them was declared winner. Today, partially in order to drag the proceedings out sufficiently long to justify a $60 000 TV fee and to turn the house over three times, the girls are judged in three categories; in bathing suits, in evening gowns, and for something called talent. The bondaries of this latter category can be stretched to accomodate the ability to break four balloons the width of the stage away with seven arrows. Contestants have been known to sing, dance, «recite» trampoline-tumble and even crochet.

PETER BLAKE

“It’s a cross I bear,” he said of the fact that his art is not taken as seriously as that of some contemporaries. “Perhaps it’s surprising that at my kind of age and with my infirmities I’m still cheerful,” he said at the Waddington Custot Galleries, where his latest show, “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” is on view. Surrounding him are works ranging from some of his earliest watercolors, executed in 1948 when he was 16, to The Family, a sculpture he completed just a few days ago. Stroking his wispy silver beard repeatedly and using a cane to walk around a central London gallery, the man dubbed the “godfather of pop art” still struggles to come to terms with his place in the world of contemporary culture. Blake concedes that he is often left having to defend his work in a world in which “serious” art is cherished above all. What is striking is how lively they are — plastic figures of Snow White and 30 dwarfs crowd outside a model of a Swiss chalet in one humorous work, and the 6-foot-long A Parade for Saul Steinberg is a model bursting with color and references to popular culture. “Painters all have a different reason to paint. It could be politics; it could be angst; it could be anger. My reason to paint is to make magic and to make cheerful things.”
LONDON — Pop music loves him. The art establishment shuns him.
At the age of 80, British artist Peter Blake is revered for his celebrated Sgt. Pepper Beatles album cover yet at the same time dismissed as too “cheerful” to be one of the greats.

“I’m not crazy about seeing myself described as an American-Jewish writer,” Roth tells the camera in his “Masters” portrait, which will air on March 29, shortly after his 80th birthday. “I don’t write in Jewish. I write in American.” “I think I missed the Jew boat by one generation,” Brooks said when asked if he considered himself a “Jewish entertainer.” “When I worked in the Borscht Belt I spoke in English; a generation before me they spoke in Yiddish.” 
These two Jewish geniuses get asked about Jewishness a lot. Is it their Jewishness that makes them so special or their specialness that makes Jewishness matter?
“They keep asking me,” Brooks continued, “ ‘What is Jewish comedy? How does it differ from normal comedy?’ I say, ‘You got it wrong. It’s not really Jewish comedy — there are traces of it, but it is really New York comedy, urban comedy, street-corner comedy. It’s not Jewish comedy — that’s from Vilna, that’s Poland.”
I asked Roth why the Jewish label bothered him. “It doesn’t bother me,” he said.  “People can call me anything they want.” Well, then, what role has it played? 
“I’m an American writer. Think of Faulkner, think of Bellow — they’re regionalists. They write about the place that they come from. So was Joyce, a regionalist. I wrote about the region I came from and that particular locale was full of Jews — me, my family and all my friends. So I wrote about them. The ‘Jewishness’ wasn’t so much Jewishness, as these are the people I knew, and this is the culture I knew. In my adult life, I have had many friends from many different backgrounds, but by and large, I have followed the lives of Jewish men because I know the most about them — I think.”

NEW YORK (ÉTATS-UNIS) [17.12.12] – Damien Hirst ne sera désormais plus représenté par Larry Gagosian. La collaboration entre l’artiste et le galeriste durait depuis 17 ans.
L’artiste britannique semble avoir décidé de mettre fin à la fructueuse collaboration qu’il entretient depuis 17 ans avec la galerie Larry Gagosian. Depuis 1995, les œuvres de Damien Hirst ont été exposées dans chacune des 12 galeries qui constituent l’empire de Larry Gagosian, à l’exception de la nouvelle antenne du Bourget.

Science Ltd, la société d’Hirst a précisé qu’il s’agissait d’une décision à l’amiable, ajoutant que l’artiste continuerait en revanche à collaborer avec la White Cube Gallery de Londres, avec laquelle il travaille depuis presque aussi longtemps que la galerie Gagosian. On se souvient comment, en 2008, Damien Hirst avait organisé lui-même, sans passer par un intermédiaire, la vente de ses propres œuvres chez Sotheby’s.

Une question se pose maintenant : vers qui l’artiste va-il se tourner pour le représenter, notamment à New York où ses œuvres sont très recherchées ?

Il y a seulement quelques jours, c’est un autre artiste emblématique de Gagosian, Jeff Koons, qui annonçait une collaboration prochaine avec la galerie Zwirner. La galerie Gagosian a néanmoins précisé qu’elle représentait toujours Koons.

POST WARHOL PREDICTION: JEWISH MAG: IS THE ART BUBBLE GOOD FOR THE JEWS?

»GOOD BUSINESS IS THE BEST ART»


Buying and selling contemporary art at the highest level currently has a lot more to do with capitalism than it does cultural value. Unless you understand that, you aren’t actually talking about the art market at all.
The big dealers — GagosianDavid ZwirnerPace, etc. — and the deep-pocketed collecting families like the Mugrabis and the Nahmads — have almost complete control over the markets of contemporary art's most expensive artists. Furthermore, the cultural cachet of having done business at one of the world’s most famous galleries is part of what you pay for when you buy a work by one of those galleries’ artists. That value will likely drop in the long run — but it’s currently a market force continuing to push prices upward. High prices for contemporary artists are entirely dependent on the ability of the best dealers to continue to convince their wealthy clients that higher prices are worth paying, and to dish out the cash themselves at times to keep everything going when demand is lean. As long as they can continue to do that, the state of the market is unlikely to change.

FUREUR – Une statue d’Hitler en plein cœur du ghetto de Varsovie

Une statue de cire représentant Adolf Hitler, en plein cœur du ghetto de Varsovie. L'initiative est osée et ne manque évidemment pas de susciter la controverse, rapporte le quotidien britannique The Guardian.
L'œuvre de l'artiste contemporain italien Maurizio Cattelan, intitulée Him, représente le dictateur agenouillé. Posée dans une cour, elle n'est visible par le public que de dos, par un trou dans une porte en bois. Si la statue a attiré de nombreux visiteurs depuis son installation, en novembre dernier, elle a aussi déclenché l'hostilité de certaines organisations juives, rapporte le Guardian. Le Centre Simon-Wiesenthal a ainsi évoqué "une provocation insensée qui insulte la mémoire des victimes juives des nazis".
Le Guardian explique que, selon les organisateurs de l'exposition, l'œuvre a pour but de faire réfléchir le public sur la nature du mal. Fabio Cavallucci, directeur du centre d'art contemporain à l'origine de la manifestation, estime ainsi qu'"il n'y a aucune intention de la part de l'artiste ou du centre d'insulter la mémoire des juifs. C'est une œuvre qui essaie d'évoquer le mal qui s'insinue partout".

Works by Pop Art pioneer Andy Warhol rose to the top of auction sales in 2012. Warhol's art fetched a total of $380.3 million, beating such artists as Picasso, Richter and Zhang. According to Bloomberg, the second place in the list complied by Artnet belongs to Spaniard Pablo Picasso. His art earned $334.7 million last year as opposed to $366 million in 2011. In 2012 Picasso also lost his title of the world's most expensive artist at auction, when The Scream by Edvard Munch set the new record of $119.9 million last May.Eighty year old German painter, Gerhard Richter, took third place, becoming the top selling living artist. Richter's art fetched $298.9 million in 2012 climbing up from sixth in 2011. A 1994 abstract painting owned by Eric Clapton sold at Sotheby's last October for $42 million, helping Richter secure his place among the top three.Works from the Chinese ink painter Zhang Daqian, who died in 1983, faced a major decline in sales compared to 2011, when his artwork earned $782.4 million. In 2012 his work sold for a total of $241.6 million due to “economic and political uncertainty,” art dealers are quoted by Bloomberg as saying.

WHAT THE EARLY 21st CENTURY IS REALLY ALL ABOUT...

The age of desperate papy boomers trying to put their hands on anybody twenty or thirty years younger. A sense of dignity, self respect and giving back to the word by intellectual achievement: what the fuck is that?...

Gérard Depardieu est donc aussi le nom qu’on peut donner à la tragédie de l'être humain, incapable d'échapper à son enveloppe charnelle. Et qui, malgré tous ses subterfuges, malgré le divertissement de soi et des autres, sait qu'il  reste mortel.   
Et comme presque tous ceux qui ont cette lucidité-là, il se déteste de se savoir mortel. Et il accélère ce qu’il redoute, pour ne pas avoir à l’attendre.
C'est cela qu’il faut le plus apprendre de Gérard Depardieu. Et c’est de cela qu’il faut le plus se méfier: que la fascination d'un peuple pour un homme, qui le représente si bien, ne le pousse pas à s'autodétruire.

    PAGLIA: A woman I'm talking with at some event says, "Let's leave here and go to this bar," which is a lesbian bar. We go to the bar and we're talking and then she says, "Let's go have coffee," and we go to this coffee shop and end up, at three in the morning, half a block from her apartment. Finally, she says, "All right, well, goodnight." She's ready to go home alone and I look at her, like, "What do you mean? Aren't we going to go back to your apartment?" "No." "What?" And she says, "Do you think I was leading you on?" Un-fucking-believable. I can't tell you the rage. I am, at that point, looking at her and.... All I can say is, if I had been an 18-year-old street kid instead of a 45-year-old woman, I would have stabbed her. I was completely humiliated and furious. If I had been a guy with a hard-on, I would have hit her.

I JUST READ EVERYTHING»


Warhol deserves a lot of credit. He cut to the chase when it came to making an American art about American life in the mid-20th century. He eliminated a long-accepted filter between his various art forms and reality, letting the nation’s tarnished soul shine through in all its cheap, materialistic, radiant, often violent, implicitly erotic glory.
He trained his movie camera on real people doing nothing but staring back at the lens, sleeping, eating or kissing; on unscripted actors and nonactors making things up as they went along; on the emblematic Empire State Building, which he filmed with a stationary camera for some seven hours one night. In painting he skimmed images from newspapers, enlarged them onto silk-screens and slapped them onto canvas, before or after adding splashes of off-register color. He was aided by a preternatural instinct for motifs of ever-growing resonance: portraits of Marilyn, Jackie, Liz and Mao, pictures of Coke bottles and soup cans, car crashes, race riots and electric chairs.
His two-tier process separated color from image, a radical move that made thinness a beautiful thing in itself, a perfect visual metaphor for the fragile, transitory nature of life and the basis for an indelible Warhol brand.
