Wrestling With Artist Carroll Dunham

https://www.sothebys.com/content/dam/sothebys-pages/blogs/In%20Other%20Words/2018/5/in-other-words-carroll-dunham-recirc.jpg
Art is a “kind of lustful driving forwards” for Dunham, who has moved from abstraction to figuration over the course of his varied career. Works from his Wrestlers series are currently on show at Gladstone Gallery in New York (until 16 June). “I wanted to try to find a male equivalent to the women that I had been drawing and painting, which I had thought of as being rather primeval in some way,” Dunham says. “They are naked white guys beating the crap out of each other. I’m not claiming any special relevance or meaning for these things. They just allow me to keep making paintings.”Dunham talks to Schwartzman and host Charlotte Burns about how his life and work – and the broader art community – have changed since moving from the bustle of New York, where he spent his early career, to the solitude of rural Connecticut.Known for his incisive writing about other arti…

Huge sums of money—more than $2.6bn—have been spent on Impressionist, Modern and contemporary art over the past two weeks in New York. On today’s podcast, Nicholas Maclean (of London and New York dealership Eykyn Maclean) and Allan Schwartzman (co-founder of AAP), discuss with our host Charlotte Burns (editor of In Other Words), what happened: what the surprises were; what trends we can detect; and what’s going to happen next. “In Other Words” is a presentation of AAP and Sotheby’s, produced by Audiation.fm. These traditional categories of Impressionist, Modern and post-war contemporary... [are] not how most collectors buy.... They might have a Mondrian or a Picasso mixed in with great Ab Ex, Pop or Minimalist works. From the Podcast...“It is a sign that the market is starved for broadening what it sees as valuable.

Alongside a myriad of thought-provoking pavilions at the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale, a notable lineup of art exhibitions will also debut.

Designer Ronan Bouroullec exhibits a rather enigmatic body of work through his untitled drawings and collages (2010-2017), along with Juillet, a new book of drawings. A seductive exploration of color, elemental forms, and space is rendered through humble means: color felt tip pen and pencil works are free-flowing on paper, and in some cases, collaged with masking tape. These abstract works were produced on a daily basis alongside ongoing projects and can be considered a “parallel” practice – essential research for intuitive spatial, ch…

Holy Chic: Byzantine Glory in Art and Fashion at the Met

https://www.sothebys.com/content/dam/sothebys-pages/blogs/sothebys-at-large/2018/05/met-featured2.jpg
“The Pope Wears Prada” was the headline of a 2005 Newsweek article reviewing Benedict XVI’s chic sartorial choices: red Prada loafers and Gucci sunglasses styled with his papal garments. Andrew Bolton, Wendy Yu Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, cites that quote as the catalyst for his latest curation: Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. Although brief, the article made Bolton realize there was much more to be deliberated, “namely the role that dress plays within the Catholic Church and the role the Catholic Church plays in fashion and the imagination.” The curator, who is also responsible for the hugely successful Costume Institute shows Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty and China: Through the Looking Glass, in 2011 and 2015 respectively, has now put on another astonishing exhibition that is ripe with eloquent context.

NORMAN ROCKWELL, THE LITTLE MODEL. ESTIMATE $1,000,000–1,500,000 IN THE AMERICAN ART AUCTION (23 MAY, NEW YORK).Throughout his celebrated career Norman Rockwell was renowned for his unique ability to capture the spirit of daily American life with wit and warmth. Among the hundreds of artworks he created as illustrations for famed publications including The Saturday Evening Post and Collier's, his images of children were particularly treasured. Replete with imagination, innocence, mischief and humor, such works embodied Rockwell at his best. Sotheby’s upcoming American Art sale (23 May, New York) features two works from opposite ends of Rockwell's artistic career – The Little Model of 1919 and 1964's Little Girl Looking Downstairs at Christmas Party – that together reflect his enduring interest in the themes of childhood and adolescence while illustrating his sty…
