The process of reevaluation is mandated by the Museum's tradition, which encourages openness and a willingness to evolve and change. In sum, The Museum of Modern Art seeks to create a dialogue between the established and the experimental, the past and the present, in an environment that is responsive to the issues of modern and contemporary art, while being accessible to a public that ranges from scholars to young children.

Comfortably Numb: Turner Prize Lacks Spirit of the Good (Bad) Old Days
20/10/2014
Comfortably Numb: Turner Prize Lacks Spirit of the Good (Bad) Old DaysLONDON — In Latin there is a distinction between questions expecting the answer yes, and those anticipating a no. So how’s this for an inquiry of the first type: Is the 2014 Turner Prize the most hermetic, the most opaque, and the least calculated to grab the attention of the average sentient human being to date? I know that sets the bar very high, but I think this year’s exhibition, at the Tate (through January 4), clears it with ease. I don’t mean that it is bad; in fact, I don’t know if it is bad. It certainly isn’t shocking or outrageous, as it was in the good — or bad — old days, when three-dimensional objects such as Tracey Emin’s celebrated “My Bed” were on view. That was in 1999. Since then, there has been a slow but increasing tendency for the annual exhibition to empty of any object that seizes the attention or indeed on which the mind can get any handle at all. The mild despair and temporary loss of the will to live I experienced on visiting this year’s display may be associated with the fact that three out of the four shortlisted artists are showing a film or video work. James Richards’s film “Rosebud,” 2013, is a visual-aural melange of stills from censored Japanese erotic photographs discovered by the artist in a library, intercut with footage, including bits of somebody’s arms flopping around while they roll around on the floor and other sequences shot half under water. At this point, traditionally, the critic explains why the artist is doing this, but I’m not sure I can. My suspicion, however, is that making collages of found imagery, still and moving, in this way is the Internet-age equivalent of making quilts out of colorful scraps of fabric (but personally I much prefer quilts). Richards is also exhibiting “Untitled Merchandise (Lovers and Dealers),” 2007, which — to quote the press release — “transposes snapshots of lovers and art dealers who were close to artist Keith Haring on to souvenir blankets that ordinarily depict members of the US military.” It would be untrue to say words fail me; the phrase “wilfully recondite” came to mind. Tris Vonna-Mitchell has a slide projector/sound installation in his section as well as film, which is slightly different — but not very, in my book. The point of his work is perhaps more aural than visual. “Finding Chopin: Dans l’Essex,” 2014, has to do not with the composer but with a recently deceased French concrete poet, Henri Chopin, who is somehow connected to the artist’s quest to discover why he was born in the town of Southend-on-Sea. Quail eggs come into play as well. This, then, is a mixture of the fantastically obscure, the whimsical, and the surreal — so it’s slightly appealing. There is an original brand of wackiness at work here. The problem, though, is that Vonna-Mitchell is essentially a performance artist, and the interest is entirely in his off-beat narration. The visual component in the work is, if you can stand another oxymoron, jarringly dull. Since I am normally drawn to traditional media such as printmaking, I should have been predisposed in favor of Ciara Phillips, whose installation “Things Shared,” 2014, largely consists of screenprints plastered from floor to ceiling. These however, though they appear differing shades — admittedly, mainly blue — are remarkably similar: they present a nondescript blur. On one wall the letters “O” and “K” appear, separately framed. This is, I suspect, a post-Warholian investigation of meaninglessness. But even if lack of meaning is your theme, you have to make it interesting. This does not. The final artist on the shortlist is Duncan Campbell, a filmmaker who is showing “It for Others,” 2013, a film about the commodification of African art by Western cultures, explored with a Marxist slant and via a 1953 film by the French director Alain Resnais, “Les Statues Meurent Aussi,” and dance by Michael Clark and company. His other contribution, “Sigmar,” 2008, is concerned with both his interest in the German artist Sigmar Polke, and his lack of knowledge about him. On the grounds that his work is more clearly of visual interest than any of the others, Campbell perhaps deserves to win. On the other hand, an art gallery seems to be a wildly unsuitable venue in which to show a film such as “It for Others,” which is almost an hour long. The Turkish video artist Kutlug Ataman, who featured on the Turner shortlist a decade ago, has suggested that the short films that once upon a time used to be screened at art house cinemas have now migrated to galleries. Perhaps museums of art are a useful laboratory in which film-based artists can experiment before they find a wider audience. That is exactly what has happened in the case of Steve McQueen, who beat Emin’s bed and won in 1999. Now, of course, he’s the first person in history to win both the Turner Prize and an Oscar. I may be proven wrong about this in a decade or two, but a wider audience is not something I can imagine any of the artists on this year’s shortlist ever finding.

All-White Manzoni Leads Sotheby’s Frieze-Week Sale
18/10/2014
LONDON – White was the new black on Friday, as Sotheby’s sold Piero Manzoni’s “Achrome” (1958-59) for £12.6 million, the highest amount for any work sold at auction during Frieze Week. The price, equivalent to $20.25 million, set a record for the artist after a battle between eight bidders. The winner was a European private buyer. The work was last shown at the Tate Modern’s Beyond Painting exhibition in 2005/2006, and is one of only nine of its kind that the artist created at this large scale (110 x 150 cm), three of them now in museums. The canvases were saturated with kaolin (white clay) in a series that Manzoni started in 1957 and continued until his premature death in 1963. Collectors battled for a number of luminous white works on Friday. Alongside Manzoni, works by Castellani, Bonalumi and Simeti nearly doubled their respective artists' records. All three came from the collection  of Giobatta Meneguzzo and were sold to aid his Museo Casabianca. In the realm of color, five bidders drove Fontana’s red “Concetto Spaziale, Attese” from 1965 up to £1.6 million, beating estimates of £700,000 to £900,000. Sotheby’s described its Friday results—for a 20th-century Italian art sale and a contemporary one—as the strongest ever realized during Frieze Week, with sales totaling £69.6 million, or $111.6 million. It was the house's best-ever sale of Italian art, with all but one of 49 lots selling, for a total of £41.4 million (against a top estimate of £33.5 million). That sale, which also included works owned by the Italian collector Alessandro Grassi, coincided with the newly opened exhibition “ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s–60s” at the Guggenheim in New York, the first large-scale historical survey of ZERO artists. Sotheby’s reported strong demand for the ZERO artists, with a record set for one of the movement’s founders, Heinz Mack. His “Die Vibration der Stille” sold for £302,500. Sales have grown eight-fold at Sotheby’s dedicated sales of 20th-century Italian Art over the last 15 years.“We’ve seen a new dawn for Italian art,” said Claudia Dwek, Deputy Chairman, Sotheby’s Europe. Eighty-eight percent of lots sold at the contemporary sale. Dealers this week said that contemporary auctions have generally been coming in at mid-estimate levels, with collectors selective and cautious on pricing, and only the best quality works going for records. At Sotheby’s the total was £28.2 million, against an estimate of £25.1 million to £35.1 million, even with 25% more participants than last year. Chinese participation was up 125%, Sotheby’s said. A private Asian collector bought the top lot of the Contemporary Evening Sale, “Peinture” by the contemporary French artist Pierre Soulages. The collector paid £2.66 million, against an estimate of £2 million to £3 million. The Yuz Museum in Shanghai bought Martin Kippenberger’s “Ohne Titel (Meine Lügen sind ehrlich)” (1992) for £2.32 million. The self-portrait of the naked artist recalls Rodin’s “The Thinker” or a figure from Picasso. “Asian buyers were out in force, snapping up the two top lots,” said Alex Branczik, Head of Contemporary Art, Sotheby’s London.
