SIZE MATTERS

Increasingly, the artworks on display are just as enormous, requiring cranes and teams of workers to display. Museums were once the only potential buyers for such room-filling pieces, but over the past decade an influx of wealthy collectors around the world has started buying ever-larger art trophies. All of it has prompted dealers to seek out artists whose work is hefty enough to stand out from afar—a prioritizing by size that never occurred in past generations, dealers say.

2013-Homosexuality-04The view that homosexuality should be accepted by society is prevalent in most of the European Union countries surveyed. About three-quarters or more in Spain (88%), Germany (87%), the Czech Republic (80%), France (77%), Britain (76%), and Italy (74%) share this view, as do more than half in Greece (53%). Poland is the only EU country surveyed where views are mixed; 42% say homosexuality should be accepted by society and 46% believe it should be rejected.
Canadians, who already expressed tolerant views in 2007, are now even more likely to say homosexuality should be accepted by society; 80% say this, compared with 70% six years ago. Views are not as positive in the U.S., where a smaller majority (60%) believes homosexuality should be accepted. But Americans are far more tolerant today than they were in 2007, when 49% said homosexuality should be accepted by society and 41% said it should be rejected.

“We used to sit around in the gallery on a Saturday afternoon hoping someone would come in,” said Arne Glimcher, of the Pace Gallery in New York. “What we are dealing with now is destination shopping. We have to be in different places. We bring the art to the collector rather than bringing the collector to the art.”
Some dealers only reluctantly take part. Paula Cooper, the New York art dealer, attends some fairs because they allow her to see work from numerous countries in one place. But mostly she sends others from her gallery, decrying the loss of what she describes as a more thoughtful time even just five years ago when she could sit with artists and collectors and talk about art. “It is just like any business in the world now,” she said. “It is becoming a global enterprise.”
Mr. Glimcher, too, said he preferred others from his gallery to make the global trek.
“Fairs are beneath the dignity of art,” he said. “To stand there in a booth and hawk your wares — it is just not how you sell art.”

KEITH HARING ON THE EAST VILLAGE

«It was just exploding. All kinds of new things were starting. In music, it was the punk and New Wave scene. There was a migration of artists from all over America to New York.  It was completely wild. And we controlled it ourselves. There was the group of artists called COLLAB-Collaborative Projects-doing exhibitions in abandoned buildings. And there was the club scene -The Mudd Club and Club 57 at St Mark's Place in the basement of a Polish church, which became our hangout, a clubhouse, where we could do whatever we wanted. We started doing theme parties-beatnik parties that were satires of the Sixties and parties with porno movies and stripteases. We showed early Warhol films. And there was this art out on the streets. Before I knew who he was, I became obsessed with Jean-Michel Basquiat's work».

MADONNA ON HOW SHE MET WARHOL AND HARING

«At the time I was hanging around with a lot of graffiti artists, Futura 2000, Keith Haring and Jean -Michel Basquiat. Jean-Michel introduced me to Andy Warhol. I remember we were all at a japanese restaurant on Second Avenue and Seventh Street, where Keith had done a bunch of drawings on the walls, and Jean-Michel was telling me how jealous he was of me being on the radio. Because he thought that I had a more accessible  form of art, and more people would be exposed to it. Andy told him to stop complaining....I was introduced to Keith by a roommate, but I had already seen his work on the streets, subways and buildings. Then we started hanging out at Dancetaria, and Mudd Club and Roxy. The Rock Steady Crew was there.We'd dance, we'd watch break-dancing crews there and on the streets»

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

In 1978, four years before he would be invited to broadcast his messages on the Times Square Spectacolor screen as part of the Public Art Fund’s “Messages to the Public” (1982–1990), a 20-year-old Haring was already expanding his practice into New York City’s streets and subways. The current exhibition’s “Public Spaces” section begins with an early series of “Cut-Ups” (1980) inspired by William S. Burroughs’s Dadaist literary technique of the same name. Motivated to challenge mainstream mass media, Haring used New York Post headlines to create provocative messages like “Reagan: Ready to Kill” and “Pope Killed for Freed Hostage.” Like Holzer, who began posting anonymous “Truisms” and “Essays” around lower Manhattan in the late 1970s, Haring’s earliest interventions involved plastering lampposts and newsstands with absurd and seditious collaged texts.

Buying art remotely doesn’t seem so absurd when you consider that it happens all the time at Christie’s and Sotheby’s, two of the most prominent auction houses in the world. As CNBC reported earlier this summer, 27 percent of Christie’s $6.3 billion in sales last year came from online bidding. Similarly, Sotheby’s BidNow program allows online bidders to participate in all its auctions except wine, and the auction house has also long accepted bids by phone. But the bit auction houses differ from Amazon Art markedly in that they still conduct most of their auctions in person or by phone. And both have the considerable cachet they’ve been accumulating since their founding back in the 18th century.

Et le communautarisme juif hassidique, il concerne quoi exactement? Une absence de connotation religieuse peut-être?  Aucun progrès sur cette question des communautarismes ne sera possible tant que cela ne pourra pas être discuté en toute objectivité.

I don't think people went around saying to themselves, 'I need to have a 10,000-square-foot house'... I think, there has also been a shift in culture. We weren't exposed to the things we didn't have in the same way that kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous.
