TINKERBELLE & INTERVIEW MAGAZINE

«Eventually she had a renaissance at Interview magazine, where she had not written for years because of a general purge of the masthead. Andy Warhol, however, had regretted her getting away, and often nagged Bob Colacello, the executive director, «See, Tinkerbelle has a TV show now, and she's good.»
In the late seventies, through the intervention of editor Robert Hayes, Tinkerbelle's name was put back on the masthead, «between Liz Smith and Monique Van Vooren» as she told people.»

Corporate raiders a generation ago typically held their art purchases for at least a decade. Today, the average holding period for contemporary art is two years, according to a former Sotheby's specialist. That is enough time to reap a tidy profit on a rising-star artist but hardly enough for art history to rule on the artist's lasting merits.
Differing tactics abound, but taken together this group of hedge-fund collectors arguably influence the prices and popularity of the world's top artists—from mainstays like Claude Monet to newer hits like Jean-Michel Basquiat—to an extent unmatched by all but emirs and oligarchs.

PARADISE GARAGE


MADONNA AND KEITH HARING IN NEW YORK IN THE 1980'S

«He (Haring), Jean-Michel, Kenny and Madonna started a club together. She and Keith were best of friends because he generated that energy and Madonna then was really mostly a dancer. It was a
remarkable art club they created, with performances Saturdays mornings, science fiction movies, and one-day art shows. The Paradise Garage was where Madonna had her first performance. When she did «Like a Virgin», they created a pink satin bed tilted forward towards Diana Ross who was watching maybe 2-feet away»

«MY FAVORITE THING TO BUY IS UNDERWEAR»


GOOD JOKE!

In May 1985, Andy Warhol was interviewed by the modernist art historian Benjamin H.D. Buchloh. Throughout the interview, Buchloh tries to situate Warhol’s work in relation to that of earlier avant-garde artists, to Duchamp, Man Ray, Matisse, Yves Klein, and Francis Picabia, among several others. Warhol eludes every such attempt on Buchloh’s part to create a modernist pedigree for his art. “No, well, I don’t know” Warhol would say or “No, well, I didn’t think that way.” When asked specifically about the artistic impact of meeting Duchamp in the 1960s, Warhol responds “No, I didn’t know him that well.” And, in a moment of terrifically unambiguous rejection, Warhol answers a question about the influence of Picabia on his drawings of the 1950s by telling Buchloh that “I didn’t even know who that person was” at the time.

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

If you are an art enthusiast tempted to splash out on an apparent bargain, lured by the prospect that it could be a little-known work by a great painter, then you might want to think again. Art experts are warning of the rapid spread of a new con-trick infecting the market, which involves cheaply produced works in the style of great artists being sold by dealers who dishonestly suggest they are genuine.

The practice is known as “trapping” and is said to be increasingly popular on internet auction sites, as well as in auction houses, antiques shops and street markets. Unlike more traditional forgery, where well-known works are reproduced by sophisticated fraudsters in order to dupe experts, trapping is targeted at the more amateur buyers hoping to snare themselves a bargain.

Bien sur la valeur des oeuvres de Damien Hirst a beaucoup diminué ces derniers mois. Mais il a déja accompli l'essentiel. Sa célèbre vente aux enchères est désormais passée à l'histoire de l'art comme étant une rupture radicale avec la façon de faire précédente.

«Fashion is what you adopt when you don't know who you are»

NOUVELLE TENDANCE DU MARCHÉ DE L'ART

Certains s'agitent beaucoup autour de cette nouvelle tendance qui consiste à voir le prix de certaines oeuvres être artificiellement gonflés en raison du fait qu'elles proviennent d'une grande collection privée. Il n'y pourtant là rien qui mérite de s'enthousiasmer ou de le déplorer. Un peu comme Pierre Bergé rappelant un jour avec justesse que cet élément de fétichisme jouait même pour lui en tant que grand bibliophile.  Savoureux d'ailleurs que cette nouvelle tendance au fétichisme de la provenance ait trouvé son plus grand élan lors de la vente passée de la collection Pierre Bergé /Yves Saint-Laurent.

BASQUIAT & BOXING


First and foremost, Jean-Michel Basquiat was fiercely independent. Simply put, nobody told him what to do. He always marched to his own drum and as a result, had to be an extremely self-reliant man. Perhaps that is why he chose to do a painting symbolizing the first African-American heavyweight champion of the world Jack Johnson, who will always be remembered for living his life the way he preferred, regardless of the consequences.Very much like Johnson, Basquiat crashed through his field’s glass ceiling, becoming the first African-American to make a major impact on the world of international fine art. Johnson and Basquiat were also known ladies’ men with a particular penchant for white women; somewhat of a taboo in the early 1980s but behavior that could easily get a black man killed during the time of Jack Johnson in the earlier part of the twentieth century.
