Review: Mira Schendel at Hauser and Wirth
12/04/2014
Watch ARTINFO video on Mira Schendel show HERE.  In the first show of postwar Brazilian artist Mira Schendel at Hauser and Wirth since the gallery took on her estate in October 2013, private dealer Olivier Renaud-Clément brings together a wide-ranging group of more than 35 works that span some two decades (the exhibition runs through April 26 in New York). The earliest are from the mid-1960s, when Schendel first began making her best-known “Monotipias,” a translucent series of rice paper pieces that often feature a scattered letter motif. The latest include the artist’s final series of works in tempera and gesso on wood made one year before her death in 1988. Without a unifying principal, this isn’t exactly a cohesive presentation, but it is an opportunity to see the career highlights of a notoriously prolific artist. One such standout is Ondas parades de probabilidade, an installation composed of thousands of nylon threads hanging from the ceiling to the floor. Schendel first created the piece for the controversial 1969 São Paulo Biennial that many artists boycotted in protest of Brazil’s military dictatorship. In a wall text that Schendel paired with the piece is a passage from the Old Testament’s 1 Kings 19 that tells the tale of God abandoning Elijah as a clever metaphor for the political upheaval of the time. A departure from her mostly monochrome palette, a suite of colorful ink-and-pastel drawings from the 1960s reveals a playfulness in the way she records shapes and colors. Hauser & Wirth’s addition of Schendel — one of the most influential Brazilian modernists and a long overlooked figure in the United States — is a welcome addition to the New York galleryscape. A version of this article appears in the Summer 2014 issue of Modern Painters magazine.   Review: Mira Schendel at Hauser and WirthSelect Photo Gallery: Slideshow: Mira Schendel at Hauser & WirthPublished: April 12, 2014 Read full article here

VIDEO: "Richard Serra Week" in Qatar Features Desert Sculpture
11/04/2014
VIDEO: "Richard Serra Week" in Qatar Features Desert SculptureDoha, QATAR — Richard Serra was feted in Qatar this week with the opening of several exhibitions in venues around the capitol Doha. The renowned American sculptor was on hand as his “East-West/West-East” was unveiled in the desert about 40 miles from Doha. The work, commissioned by the emir’s sister, Sheikha al-Mayassa bint Hamad al-Thani and the Qatar Museums Authority she heads, consists of four massive steel plates of varying heights of about 50 feet that rise from the desert sands. Serra walked through the permanent installation in the desert with dignitaries and reporters telling them why he selected the location based on the view and landscape. “When I first came here, Sheikha al-Mayassa asked me… if I want to build a piece in the landscape and I said, what landscape?”, said Serra during his remarks at the unveiling. “And she said the desert. To tell you the truth, I don’t know what the desert was all about here.” Serra says he toured four different deserts with a Bedouin and kept returning to the same spot in the Brouq Nature Reserve, where a peninsula juts out into the waters of the Gulf, “like a finger separating the sea on the East and the sea on the West.”  The unveiling of the sculpture was set to coincide with Serra’s first solo exhibition in the Middle East at the Al Riwaq Doha Exhibition Space and QMA Gallery at Katara, entitled “Passage of Time”. The new large-scale work is comprised of two 220-foot long and 13-foot-high steel curves “that snake through the exhibition space” and around works from the artist’s 50-year career. Both entitled “Richard Serra”, the two exhibitions are curated by Alfred Pacquement, former director of the National Museum of Modern Art, Centre Pompidou in Paris. The shows run through July 6.

Tiffany's Celebrates Blue Book Collection With "Diamond Sky" Projection Installation
11/04/2014
NEW YORK — Ten projectors spread out across the Guggenheim Museum last night gave about 250 guests the feeling of being encased in a precious gemstone at Tiffany & Co.’s launch of its 2014 Blue Book collection. Artists from Glowing Bulbs and John Ensor Parker, in collaboration with multimedia curator Leo Kuelbs, staged a mapping projection installation called “The Diamond Sky,” using light reflections and refractions to create colorful, geometric patterns, approximating jewelry and building facades at different times, that spun across Frank Lloyd Wright’s signature spiraling parapets up toward the night sky visible through the oculus. Speaking to BLOUIN Artinfo at the event, Kuelbs said: “The idea was to make it appear as if you’re inside a gem. Playing with both light and depth, people should be able to take away a sense of having received a virtual heirloom.” The starting point of inspiration was of course the collection of sparkling gemstones, said Kuelbs, which includes diamonds and colored gemstones in the most elegantly crafted designs, with key pieces inspired from the Fifth Aveue jeweler’s archives. But then, there was the challenge of the lack of continuous wall space, or projection surface, to consider. “Once we knew the site was the Guggenheim, we started thinking about where the people were going to be watching the installation from. The challenges were also where the nice surprises arose. We only have these parapet areas so there’s all this negative space in between, but the artists, Glowing Bulbs and John Ensor Parker, are great, they really know what they’re doing.” Kuelbs has curated a myriad of artistic events involving public art, luxury marketing, video art and multi-city programs in cities such as New York and Berlin, focusing on collaborative projects with an emphasis on conceptual infrastructure. Recent projection mapping shows include two for Dom Perignon, “The Expanding Universe” and “Divine Coalescence”, and “Codex Dynamic,” which was presented across roughly 34,000 sq ft of the Manhattan Bridge in 2012.  Last October, the trio staged “Blueprints and Perspectives,” an outdoor exhibition of light, video, sound and performance that was played out on The Wyly Building as part of Aurora the contemporary art exhibition in Dallas, Texas. “When you do something so large-scale and enveloping, when there’s more going on than you can see, it creates a vulnerability in people that are gathered together in one vulnerable spot looking at something really beautiful. That can be a really powerful feeling for people,” said Kuelbs, who added that the installation for Tiffany’s — comprising a 6-minute main piece and a 20-minute teaser — was so exclusive that it would “only ever be be shown twice, tonight only, and to the 250 people here only.” The event at the Guggenheim drew such celebrities and supermodels as Katie Holmes, Jessica Biel, Kate Bosworth (pictured below), Hilary Rhoda and Fei Fei Sun.
