YOUTH IS MADE TO SHOW OFF


WARHOL ET MAO


  • Le musée d’art contemporain de Shanghai a officiellement ouvert dimanche une grande rétrospective Andy Warhol, amputée des célèbres portraits de Mao qui figurent pourtant dans l’exposition itinérante déjà passée par Singapour et Hong Kong
  • .
Conçue pour le 25e anniversaire de sa mort, l’exposition «The Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal» rassemble plus de 300 oeuvres de l’artiste dont 10 portraits sérigraphiés et à l’acrylique du Grand Timonier.
Le musée Andy Warhol de Pittsburgh, en Pennsylvanie (est des Etats-Unis), a de longue date fait connaître leur retrait de l’événement, à Pékin et Shanghai. «Nous avons travaillé avec les conservateurs dans les deux institutions, à Pékin et Shanghai, et il y avait quelque inquiétude à les exposer en ce moment», a déclaré dimanche à l’AFP le directeur du musée américain, Eric Shiner. «Nous voulions présenter l’oeuvre d’Andy Warhol en Chine. Si ces peintures pouvaient poser un problème, nous les retirions», a-t-il expliqué en évoquant «une décision mutuelle».
Réalisés en 1972 et 1973, les portraits de Mao Tsé-toung marquaient le retour d’Andy Warhol à la peinture. Ils auraient été inspirés par la visite historique du président américain Richard Nixon en Chine en 1972 et sa rencontre avec le père de la Révolution culturelle.

Haring initially contacted Castelbajac looking for one of the designer’s teddy bear coats to give toMadonna for her birthday, and after that they regularly met in Paris. “He was the one who taught me how to make chalk drawings in the street,” said Castelbajac, pulling a piece of white chalk from his pants pocket. (Later that evening, he would use it to draw a portrait of Haring on a wall with the title “French Keith.”) Castelbajac, who featured art by Haring in his fall 2002 collection, said he owns what he believes to be the artist’s last work, a sketch for the invitation to his fall 1990 fashion show. “I had asked him to draw the invitation, and he said he wasn’t sure if he would have the time. I was in Tokyo, and on the flight back, I saw that Keith had died. When I got to my office [in Paris], there was a tube package from New York, and inside it was the invitation,” he recalled.

«GOOD BUSINESS IS THE BEST ART»

AT 20, AN AGE WHEN MOST young men are interested in collecting music and girlfriends, paper scion Peter Brant began buying Andy Warhols. The first piece he picked up, in 1967, was a drawing of a Campbell’s soup can, which cost him $500. A few months later, he acquired a painting called for $5,000. “That was a lot of money back then,” says Brant, who was spending the earnings on a $10,000 gift from his grandfather that he had invested. “A Cadillac cost $3,500.”

Today, Warhol’s work fetches exponentially more, and Brant’s collection has become one of the most extensive in private hands, comprised of masterworks like and . Starting this month and running through the summer, the result of Brant’s 45 years of fascination with the artist will be on display at The Brant Foundation Art Study Center, his museum in Greenwich, Connecticut. He and his wife, supermodel Stephanie Seymour, live across the street in a rambling stone estate with their children, Peter Jr., Harry and Lily. (Allison Brant, one of his five children from his first marriage to Sandra Brant, is the foundation’s director.)

WARHOLIAN QUOTE OF THE DAY

 “A witty saying proves nothing.”

-Voltaire

NOTHING BEHIND IT

If you want to know everything about Andy Warhol just look at all the most important things in life: love, sex, money, time, death, work, fame. There's nothing behind it.

«I JUST THINK ENTERTAINMENT IS THE BEST MESSAGE»


«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»


Just what can you say about a society in which a picture is worth so much when so many are facing poverty? It boggles my mind that one of the four existing versions of Edvard Munch's painting "The Scream" sold last year for $119.9 million. Such a vast sum of money could do so much to relieve suffering, but instead it was spent on a painting of suffering. As the prices of famous works of art rise, are we in some way going backwards in history?
There is something Medieval about the collecting habits of today's super-rich. It goes without saying that the rich have always been the most avid collectors of art, but frenzy at the top of the current art market that suggests that today's collectors are motivated less by the aesthetic value of their purchases than they are by a kind of religious fervor and supernatural faith in the transformative power of their purchases.
Blue chip works of art are now being bought and sold as relics.
Relics were bits and pieces of items that were directly connected to saints and their miraculous lives. During the medieval period splinters from the alleged true cross, finger bones of St. John the Baptist, and even alleged bits of Christ's foreskin -- the Holy Prepuce -- were avidly collected. Huge prices were paid, especially around the time of the crusades, and the market for relics was flooded with fakes. The situation got so bad that in 1287 the pope was given final authority in disputes over the authenticity of relics.

The art market is talking of nothing else. This week the FBI swooped on New York’s swanky Helly Nahmad gallery (as well as on other locations in New York and elsewhere) as part of a $100m case against Russian-run illegal gambling rings.

Nahmad is one of 34 defendants charged by the NY district attorney with racketeering, money-laundering and other crimes. He is accused of being part of the “Nahmad-Trincher Organisation”, which the attorney called “a nationwide criminal enterprise” running high-stakes illegal gambling businesses. Nahmad is alleged to have financed the organisation, which laundered tens of millions of dollars. He has surrendered to authorities in Los Angeles and, if found guilty, could face up to 92 years in prison and a $2m-plus fine.

NEW YORK — Andy Warhol works are heading to auction. Many feature the celebrities of New York City's once iconic Studio 54 nightclub.
It features more than 215 paintings, drawings, photographs and prints. Estimates range from $1,500 to $70,000. It's the second online-only sale by Christie's International in partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The foundation is selling its collection to raise money for its endowment. The highlights include a 1981 gelatin silver print of Warhol posing with Michael Jackson. It has a $15,000 to $20,000 estimate.

Pendant ce temps depuis 40 ans arrivaient massivement sur son territoire des gens pour qui toute la culture nécessaire pour vivre, c'est seulement ce que englobe la religion.

«ANDY THOUGHT A LOT ABOUT JEWS» -BOB COLACELLO


There is a tacit taboo on talking about the relationships connecting Jews and wealth, power and influence. It pushes buttons for some, and generally is not mentioned in polite society. That is, until now. The Jewish Community Center of San Francisco is hosting “Loaded: Jews & Money,” a series of events, lectures and discussions that touch on various aspects of the subject. The series, which runs through May, is the latest of the Manovill Conversations, sponsored by the Laszlo N. Tauber Family Foundation. Organizers know the topic might make some people uncomfortable. They say, bring it on.“It’s a sensitive, emotional arena, and brings out all kinds of reactions,” said Barbara Lane, the JCC’s director of Arts & Ideas. “We wanted an environment to discuss some volatile issues in a reasoned and intelligent way.” The numbers are telling, though they aren’t the whole story. A 2008 Pew Forum Institute study found that Jews are the nation’s wealthiest religious group, with 46 percent earning $100,000 or more a year, compared with 18 percent of the overall population. As for mega-wealth, the most recent Forbes list of the 400 richest Americans included nearly 100 Jewish billionaires — a striking statistic for a group that represents less than 2 percent of the population. Then again, financial criminals such as Bernie Madoff and Jack Abramoff embarrassed many in the Jewish community.

«One fascinating thing about Hollywood is that it's filled with these petite, fragile beauties in their seventies and eighties that you see at all the premieres and things. You can tell they were once really beautiful because they still have that glamour aura around them, and they still hold themselves together really well. But you can't figure out who they are, or what roles they had or how they live today».

WHAT'S LEFT OF HOLLYWOOD.....

And that’s the great thing about horror movies. Even when they’re not remakes of a popular brand, they can still be made on the cheap and attract enough fans to earn money. People who love horror almost don’t care what the film is about or who the stars are, they care about the scares. Last year’s The Devil Inside costs only $1 million to produce and earned $100 million at the global box office. Sinister cost $3 million and brought in $77 million and House at the End of the Street cost $10 million and earned $40 million.

LE MARCHÉ DE L'ART ACTUEL

Pour expliquer l'effervescence du marché de l'art actuel il est de bon ton de mentionner son aspect désormais global. Lequel aurait pour effet de contribuer à ces prix parfois faramineux. En fait, c'est un autre aspect qui joue majoritairement. Soit la fin des« isme» en art. Par conséquent la fin de cette notion de rupture définissant tout un pan passé de l'histoire de l'art. La valeur intrinsèque d'une oeuvre, c'était la force de la rupture artistique. Celle -ci étant disparue, ne reste que la spéculation de type casino sur de jeunes artistes, ou la notion de blue chip art datant de cette même époque des ruptures artistiques. En gros avant 1980.  Avec quoi Jeff Koons ou Damien Hirst sont -ils en rupture de point de vue de l'histoire de l'art? C'est là la grande question.
