Blogger's Column - 비싸게 구는 사진들 - 빈상자 님

Fri, 2008-11-28 07:44
갤러리인포 미술 전시정보 www.galleryinfo.co.kr Galleryinfo Blogger's Column 비싸게 구는 사진들 빈상자 님 예전에 (지금은 모르겠지만) 사진을 시작하는 사람이 관문처럼 지나야 했던 작가가 안셀 아담스Ansel Adams였고 그의 작품중에 특히 'Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico'(1948) 를 한동안 경배했던 때가 있었습니다. 그래서 오래전에 20불짜리 포스터 한 장을 구해다가 액자까지 해서 방에 걸어놓고 묘지위로 떠오르는 달을 한참 쳐다보던 생각이 나네요. 그리고 그때쯤 어디선가 주워들은 이야기로 이 사진의 실제 프린트는 사진중의 최고가라는 얘기도 들었습니다. 그 이후로 미술시장이 어떻게 변하고 있는지도 모른채 그 신화는 절대 깨지지 않을 것 같다는 믿음을 은연중에 오랜동안 굳게 지키고 있었던 것 같습니다. 사실 사진의 금전적 가치에 그닥 마음을 쓰고 있지 않은 탓도 있지만. 암튼, 그렇게 무심

Le 20 fotografie più pagate di quest'anno

Thu, 2008-11-27 12:00
La fotografia è a tutti gli effetti un’arte e come tale più suscitare emozioni o raccontare storie brevi ed intense. Proprio per questo motivo è normale che per alcune foto eccezionali si possa arrivare a pagare cifre considerevoli, se non esorbitanti. Negli ultimi anni inoltre la penetrazione della fotografia nel mondo dell’arte è aumentata ed anche le aste seguono questa tendenza. Grazie a Sullarte riportiamo la classifica completa tra cui spuntano gli italiani più pagati: Massimo Vitali

Point d’ironie #45: Robert Crumb

Wed, 2008-11-26 19:49
It’s the Wednesday before Thanksgiving here in SOHO and the Selectism staff is taking it easy. Though the busiest shopping day of the year is around the corner, the hood is slow at the moment. We took the opportunity to visit the agnès b store right across the street from our office and discovered the latest issue of Point d’ironie, the in-house magazine from the legendary fashion house. Issue #45 of Point D’ironie features one of our favorite comic artists, Robert Crumb. Mr. Crumb titles th

Beautiful and not in New York

Sun, 2008-11-23 22:13
We dithered and waffled on what to see in our day trip to New York last week finally settling on shows in Chelsea and Soho and work we thought talked to our concerns about beauty in contemporary art. Beauty is back of course, that's nothing any observer of the scene has missed by now, with gorgeous public art by Anish Kapoor and the embrace of beauty in even the most tetchy conceptual realms (Kara Walker). But is it "beauty" or beauty? Something wry and ironic or a new push to aesthetic pleas

So You Can Just Watch T.I. Testify In A Murder Trial?

Sun, 2008-11-23 04:52
In the week we learned the true value of five throbbing monster cocks in the same Christie’s lot, we restrained ourselves from buying anything at all from bad art salesman Judah Friedlander. Even a sandwich. Amazing Baby’s Will Roan apparently sleeps on his own couch, but at least he gets out of bed. Harmony Korine is about to have his own amazing baby, who is probably not going to be named Sleepy. Drew Daniel, meanwhile, is thinking about conducting a séance. Barack Obama may have a surprisin

Here I go sounding like a bitter photographer again

I’ve noticed the subway ads for Catherine Opie’s Guggenheim exhibit lately. You know, the one with the little girl in the tiara, ballerina dress, and USC tshirt in front of a washer/dryer machine? Wait a second, that sounds like an awful picture, why would that be in a well-renowned museum? Exactly my point. The picture is nice in a lot of ways, but it belongs in someone’s living room, not in an exhibition. Now, I’m a fair person, and I think artists deserve more than a one-image retrospective

Bones' Beat: Richard Prince's Canal Zone at Gagosian

Has Richard Prince figured out which way the wind is blowing? The miserable showing at the contemporary auctions here in New York last week brought colorful phrasing to the ritual swarm of morning-after chatterboxing beloved by art biz profession

BlogBack: Guggenheim President Jennifer Stockman on Trustees' Conflict-of-Interest

Wed, 2008-11-19 06:17
Jennifer Stockman, above, the president of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, responds to Conflicts of Interest: Museum Trustees Play the Market: The director and the curators, not the trustees, of the Guggenheim make all decisions as to the exhibitions that are shown at the museum. I in no way influenced the Guggenheim's decision to hold the 2007 retrospective of Richard Prince's work. In fact, at the time I purchased Lake Resort Nurse in 2003, I was not aware that the Guggenheim would ho

Uncontemporary Sales

Mon, 2008-11-17 16:00
By Mary Mullaj Contemporary art sales at Christie’s auction house last week were inconsistent, didn’t follow predictions, yet still managed to set a few records.  Some art sold for more than expected, and some (around a third) not at all. The auction appeared to belong to buyers, with collectors’ bids not following professional predictions whatsoever. In the end, collectors came out on top while Christie’s had several expensive losses, several of which were because of guarunteed works, meani

Il mito è una parte importante della nostra spiritualità e...

Tue, 2008-10-14 14:06
Il mito è una parte importante della nostra spiritualità e l’arte è uno dei modi per rappresentare, salvare e inventare la nostra mitologia. Con apparente scaltrezza, Richard Prince raggiunge un risultato geniale, ricostruisce un mito usando un mezzo, la fotografia, comunissimo e comprensibilissimo, e un soggetto ancora più comune e comprensibile. Il risultato è soprendente: anziché una prevedibile banalità, inventa un’opera d’arte piena di originalità. (Francesco Bonami)
