    THE HORRORS THAT DRIVE AFRICAN MIGRATION TO EUROPE SEEN IN CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN ART AT PIASA


    AFRICAN ART AT PIASA
    Aboudia (1983, Ivory Coast), Colorful Chlidren, 2014, Estimate : € 8000 / 12000


    African artists whose work includes images of migration will be much in evidence in the third sale of Contemporary African Art at PIASA, one of France’s most distinguished auction houses, on November 17 in Paris.

    Christophe Person, who heads the Contemporary African Art department at PIASA in the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré points out that the issue of migration is a major theme coming out of contemporary African art. “It is hardly surprising that so many African artists feel compelled to paint this agony. For many it has been their only reality. As this theme of migration is universal it connects powerfully with international collectors. We need to remember that making art like this can cost you your freedom, even your life.”

    ooOoo


    An artist whose life embodies these issues is Aboudia. Often compared with Jean-Michel Basquiat, he was born in 1983 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast and lives and works in Abidjan and New York.

    Aboudia says that the riots that followed the disputed Ivorian presidential election in late 2010 greatly influenced his painting. While some artists chose to flee the civil war, Aboudia decided to stay and continue working despite the danger. He worked in an artist’s studio right next to the Golf Hotel, Ouattara’s headquarters during the post-electoral crisis. He could hear the bullets zipping through the air while he painted. When the shooting got too heavy, he hid in the cellar and tried to imagine what was going on.

    As soon as things calmed down he would go back upstairs and paint everything he had in mind. Whenever he was able to go outside, he would paint everything he saw as soon as he returned. Some of his paintings were also inspired from footage he saw on the news or the Internet. Aboudia is in the collections of Charles Saatchi, Jean Pigozzi and Frank Cohen. He is represented in major art market centers like London, New York and also on the Continent.

    On June 9th 2016, a Painting by Aboudia, Untitled 2013 (125 x 200 cm), offered by PIASA at auction hit a record price of € 21,896.

    On 17th November, PIASA will offer 4 lots from Aboudia. Two mixed Media on canvas and two sets of two drawings made in 2011, estimated € 3,000 to 4000. It is unusual to find this work for sale as it has never previously been presented at auction.

    The work of Didier Viodé (Born in 1979, Ivory Coast) has been influenced by the media - North-South relations and the heated debate on immigration. The series "The Clowns of the G8" asks hard questions about the hypocrisy and deceit of the men of power. PIASA will be offering a set of eight works, ink on paper for an estimate of € 4000 / 6000.

    For Bruce Clarke political activism in particular in South Africa has impacted on his work. He was involved in the struggles within the anti-apartheid organizations and the ANC (African National Congress). He continues to work on cultural projects in Africa by working with the Afrika Cultural Centre Johannnesburg. By the early 1990s, Clarke followed African friends into exile in Paris. The war in Rwanda and the warning signs of genocide and the horror of August-September 1994 permeates his imagery. . PIASA will be offering three works by Bruce Clarke two water colours and collage on paper estimated € 2000 / 3000 each, and one acrylic and collage on canvas estimated € 6000 / 8000.

    Neill Wright (1985, South Africa). Throughout the continent, bronze statues are erected as symbols of freedom, unity and strength, embodying the ideals of nationhood, however they have also come to be perceived as symbols of megalomania and bad governance.

    Wrights sculptures function ironically as a monument or memorial to mark one of the many legacies of ‘liberation’. Last Resort is about the movement of refugees, many of whom are considered just a number, a strain on a countries resources and a burden, failing to acknowledge the sheer desperation that is experienced by displaced persons. The characters gestural language illustrates the reluctance to move and the weight and burden of the journey. PIASA will be offering 1 bronze, estimated € 6000 / 8000

    Sheila Elias & the Wolrd of iPad Art


    Sheila Elias


    Sheila Elias: iPaint on my iPad
    Miami based artist Sheila Elias began branching out from her paintings and sculptures to explore the world of art on her iPad in 2011. Elias told L’Etage Magazine: “Creating on the iPad is different than traditional painting and drawing in that you are confined to the limitations of the app and must expand your abilities to take into account those boundaries.” Elias has made a lot of noise with her art and has done multiple events demonstrating her craft from Manhattan’s Mayson Gallery to doing an “iPaint on my iPad” tour in Chicago, Santa Monica, Hong Kong and more.

    Sheila Elias
    Exerts from 2015 series: African Surprise


    About Sheila Elias
    Sheila Elias is a contemporary artist successful for her multi-media paintings, sculptures and iPad paintings. She doesn’t restrict herself on the tools she’ll use on her paintings -she won’t about reaching for a magic marker or glitter nail polish to use on her canvas.

    What makes her art so unique and refreshing is the optimism she paints with as recognized by fans of her art and critic Peter Frank. “My work is about the layers of life and art history, seeking in it a connection between art, aesthetics, and social consciousness. I like to portray a perception of urban tension, raw emotions and harsh realities tempered with gentle optimism and beauty, countering an American dream that has gone a bit astray.” -Sheila Elias

    PIASA


    Top French auction House PIASA claims a stake in the exploding contemporary African Art Market


    PIASA
    Soly Cisse Untitled, 2014, Oil on canvas, Cm 150 x 100


    PIASA, one of France’s most distinguished auction houses, will hold its third sale of Contemporary African Art, “Origins and Trajectories” on November 17 in Paris, featuring the work of 50 African artists.

    PIASA’s ambition to own part of this increasingly valuable market is well within reach, says Christophe Person, who heads the Contemporary African Art department at PIASA in the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. A financier turned art specialist, Christophe has the ability to match big figures and powerful images.

    Person comments: “African art is taking a long overdue turn in the spotlight of world interest. There is a growing understanding of the relevance of the continent’s artists whose themes are universal. And there is also a groundswell of interest from collectors and investors who have seen the prices climbing steadily.”

    PIASA’s auction is part of a very busy schedule in Europe for African Contemporary art. After the 1:54 Fair in London in October and the AKAA Fair in November, next year (2017), will be very busy with an exhibition scheduled at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, and another at La Villette “Aperta Africa”, curated by Simon Njami of Revue Noire. And the Art Paris Art Fair at Le Grand Palais in March will be dedicated to Africa.

    PIASA is determined to carve out a significant market share by using its powerful relations with Francophone Africa.

    France and Africa have a long-intertwined art history. As early as the time of the ‘cabinets de curiosité’, artefacts from Africa were collected as these objects were seen as symbols of the African culture. At the turn of the 19th and 20th century, the Surrealists and the Cubists saw the intrinsic art value of these African artefacts. Today Classical African art remains a powerful component of the French art market, opening the way for the development of this new trade in Contemporary African Art which is being integrated into the global art market that still has its centre of gravity in Paris.

    With PIASA’s “Origins and Trajectories” auction on November 17th, it is not the ‘otherness’ of African art that the auction house is showing but the avant-gardism of African artists - in the way that it is produced by artists combining their African identity with their personal stories and exposure to the world.

    The sale on November 17 includes artists who already have an international profile and a growing reputation. These include: Aboudia, Armand Boua, Ghada Amer, Godfried Donkor, Romuald Hazoumè, Oumar Ly, Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou, Esther Malhangu, Gonçalo Mabunda, Dominique Zinkpè, Chris Offili, Wagechi Mutu, Mahi Binebine, Youssef Nabil and Nnenna Okore.

    The sale reflects the diversity of the work of artists across the continent, some of whom move between Africa and the United States, the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain and Belgium. The sale is organised into sections including migration; the place of women artists in Africa and the Diaspora; and the way contemporary artists interpret classical African art in a new way; and a group following in the wake of EL Anatsui taking their lead from him.

    It also offers young artists such as Goncalo Mabunda and Nnenna Okore, Naomi Wanjiku Gakunga and Wallen Mapondera, who are leading the way in interpreting classical African culture and putting it at centre stage for the wider world. The evidence that African art is on the march is all around us. The Venice Biennale has most recently placed it centre stage, giving unprecedented visibility to a whole number of artists from Africa and its diaspora. Institutional interest and initiatives are multiplying too. The Bienniales in Marrakech, Dak'art, Bamako, Lubumbashi, Kampala and Luanda offer an invitation to discover the artists on the continent who are exporting more and more.

    On a continent where public institutions have so far invested little in museums, there are passionate private collectors and collections that haven’t missed the opportunity to gather works from movements that will certainly establish themselves in time. The most emblematic are in Morocco, Benin, Angola, Nigeria and South Africa. Outside of Africa, we have seen exhibitions at the Tate in London and the Armory Show in New York, while Africa 1:54 at Somerset House in London offers art from every one of the 54 countries in the continent.

    Now collectors have the opportunity to bid at PIASA’s latest sale on November 17 in Paris. The sale provides a snapshot of all that is best of Africa’s artistic offering to the world.

    Leading French art and design auction house PIASA has a 1,000 sq metre hotel particulier on rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in the heart of the city's art market district. Innovative auctions have established its reputation with specific themes or devoted to a single artist or designer, or covering such specialist collectables as furniture & objets d’art, haute epoque, 20th century design and modern & contemporary art.

    THE COLOR LINE


    THE COLOR LINE African-American artists and civil rights in the U.S.A

    04/10/16 - 01/15/17 musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac Paris, France


    In the United States, the importance and richness of the African-American art of the times of segregation has been recognised for thirty years now. Europe, and France in particular, is significantly behind in understanding this important period of the American history and recognizing this cultural movement. The exhibition The Color Line presents at the « musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac » next October in Paris traces 150 years of African history - American art through more than 200 works by iconic artists of this period, David Hammon, Jacob Lawrence, Aaron Douglas, Elizabeth Catlett, Ellen Gallagher and others.
    THE COLOR LINE


    The title of an article by the important African-American leader Frederick Douglass, the expression The Color Line refers to the segregation of black people that emerged in the United States after the end of the Civil War in 1865. The ratification of the 13th amendment was to open a new period in American history, with slavery giving way to a century of segregation (which would end in 1964, after many struggles, with the signing of the Civil Rights Act by President Johnson).

    The Color Line, African-American artists and civil rights in the U.S.A. discusses this history from the perspective of artistic creation in all its forms by African- American artists, who were themselves victims of this discriminatory "color line", and were almost always marginalized in their time.

    The exhibition, through a chronological and thematic route of some 200 works - painting, sculpture, photography, film, music, graphic design and comics - pays tribute to the richness and diversity of these creations.

    Art Painter Boris Brodsky's Biography


    Boris Brodsky
    1937

    Boris Brodsky


    Boris Brodsky has always had an admiration for the art of painting, especially involving both the creative process and the development of the works themselves. Brodsky is a self-taught artist, with guided training by renowned Peruvian painters such as Alberto Davila and J. Camino and 2 years of art covering coloring, painting and printing at the University of California, School of Architecture. Brodsky’s strength builds on the essence of projection balance, symmetry, harmony, and especially color, which he has mastered, applied and expressed in his unique artistic creations.

    Boris has devoted time to study, investigate and research elements of nature and has blended expressions of his art via forms, textures and color. Brodsky interprets and gives birth to abstract, unique and subjective creations of several types, and has mastered several tendencies of abstract expressionism, by elaborating forms and textures, and then giving them life by applying color through colorimetric skills. In monochromatic presentations, or with art presented in a contrasting polychromatic approach, Brodsky injects a personal touch. When it comes to texture and finishing techniques, he brings out great visual tact, in terms of smoothness, roughness or special effects.

    Certain elements of nature and history, including the cosmos have tremendously impacted Brodsky’s work. Each of these series has a different design concept and meaning, with a unique story or historical messages. Amid the series or styles in his different art creations include:

    a. Monoliths, which are forms using a version of pseudo statues, generally made out of carved stones, expressing strength and power, with a tendency to become elements of worship for the natives. Brodsky starts this series using the founders of the Incan Empire: Mancco Capac and his wife Mamma Occllo, emerging from Lake TitiKaka, who established the city of Cuzco, naming it the capital of the empire.

    b. Cosmos Series, presenting different versions of the firmament's stars, satellites, planets, in several contexts.

    c. Regular Cubism, with his beautiful interpretation of it, and a form that Brodsky generates

    d. Prismatic Cubism, a clean-cut geometric version of Cubism.

    e. Abstract Flowers, in great color combinations, giving them a sense of realism, with special textured effects.

    f. Geometrical form Abstracts, a series in which Boris creates original shapes, and fills them with vibrant and harmonious shades of color.

    g. Irregular form Abstracts, where he blends images, into curious elements of creative forms, that he then gives special meaning, with peculiar and harmonic color expressions.

    h. Story Tellers, another unique series, by which Boris leads viewers through a world of interesting and captivating stories, fictional and real.

    His art is also about creating special textures and color, with his unique formulas, based on his expertise of more than 40 years in the textile printing industry.

    More about Boris Brodsky:
    Brodsky was born in Peru and currently resides in Miami, Florida, U.S.A. Brodsky attended one of the most prestigious universities in architecture, the University of California, Berkeley, where he mastered art courses, focusing on design and painting. Since 1960, he partially owned a Textile Printing Factory in Lima, Peru, where he gained much knowledge and experience in the field, which influenced his paintings. Working at the textile plant, he purchased state-of-the-art machinery at Reggiani, Bergamo, the northern part of Italy, where the best artists of the world gathered to bring together top art.

    Due to many years in printing industry and the art of painting, Brodsky gathered much experience and knowledge, which made it possible for him to manufacture some of his own exclusive colors, and to develop special techniques, procedures and applications in printing and painting. Being exposed to fashion and textile materials assisted in developing and painting the designs that were used in the fabrics he produced. Boris extracted his own special techniques and materials that allowed him to express the elements of nature and history, by the universe and the cosmos that he has admiration for.

    As gratitude for having had the opportunity to learn and evolve in the art of painting, and for being blessed with the ability and virtue to perform in this field, Boris enjoys passing on his knowledge, his techniques and his secrets to young entrepreneurs.

    Brodsky is influenced by:

    -Alberto Davila - Peru - Cubism

    New Season of KCETLinkís Acclaimed ARTBOUND Series Launches With Focus on Social Issues Expressed Through Art The 7th Season of KCETLinkís Flagship Southern and Central Californiaís Arts and Culture Series Debuts With Episode Exploring “Mundane Afrofuturism”

    BURBANK, Calif. ñ October 19, 2015 ñ KCETLink Media Group today announced the 7th season of its acclaimed series ARTBOUND, which explores and illuminates the cultural issues of our times, providing critical in-depth analysis of how arts and culture affect our society.

    Through one-hour documentaries and an expanded digital footprint, ARTBOUND investigates the role that creative industries have in shaping the future of the region and the nation. The new season of ARTBOUND premieres Tuesday, Nov. 17 on KCET (Southern California) at 8 p.m. and nationwide on Monday, Nov. 23 at 8 p.m. PT/ET on Link TV (available on DirecTV channel 375 and DISH network 9410).

    The debut episode of season seven explores “Mundane Afrofuturism,” an hour-long special that proposes a new theory of the black aesthetic of the 21st century. “Afrofuturism” is a term that originated in the early ë90s to theorize black techno culture and explore new expressions of black art. Created in collaboration with the award winning creative studio Ways and Means, along with artist and filmmaker Martine Syms, “Mundane Afrofuturism” explores the tension between conventional, segregated channels of media distribution and the black imagination.

    Through a close reading of works by four Southern California artists engaged with problems of representation, the episode will walk through their artistic and creative processes as well as discuss inspirations. The episode features in-depth interviews with artists that include novelist Tisa Bryant, musician/producer Delroy Edwards, film programmer Erin Christovale and visual artist Nicole Miller.

    The critically acclaimed weekly television series and online destination ARTBOUND will continue to capture the spirit of the burgeoning arts and culture community in Southern and Central California and how itís shaping California as the creative capital of the world.

    The series will shift its focus to more immersive documentary specials, taking a macro view of the impact of arts and culture on society. Additionally, ARTBOUND will continue to partner and collaborate with institutions across the region, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Autry Museum, the Irvine Foundation, USC and Occidental College.

    The series will also continue to air videos created from popular user-voted online columns from cultural tastemakers about how the arts and artists have shaped the region. Since its inception in 2012, the series has earned high industry praise including several Emmy® Awards, LA Press Club awards, two Golden Mike awards and a National Entertainment Journalism award, among others. Most recently, ASCAP recognized ARTBOUND with the prestigious ASCAP Foundation Deems Taylor / Virgil Thomson Multimedia Award for outstanding music.

    Highlights on the upcoming season include an exploration back to pre-industrial Los Angeles to explore one of its key and most controversial figures, Charles Lummis; a revealing look at highly skilled, yet rarely noticed work of artisans migrating from Mexico and Latin America who are creating exquisite furniture, textiles and design goods; as well as an analysis of the “Third Los Angeles,” a term coined by Los Angeles Times architecture critic and Occidental College professor Christopher Hawthorne.

Working for over 15 years in the Tijuana and Los Angeles region, they have developed an expertise in the production of documentary films.~

    Artists and National Parks
    Artists have created art in national parks since the late 19th century when famed Hudson River School painters captured the majestic views of our nationís western parks. ARTBOUND celebrates the sights and sounds in national parks today that continue to inspire artists in more than 50 residency programs across the country in conjunction with the 100th year anniversary of the National Park System.

    OLIVER GAL’S NEW POP-UP SHOP IN THE HEART OF MIAMI


    Miami, FL, September 21, 2015– The Oliver Gal Artist Co. is excited to announce the opening of its new pop-up art shop this winter. The Oliver Gal pop-up gallery is the brainchild of Lola Sánchez & Ana Sánchez Gal, the sisters and artists who founded the company.

    OLIVER GALS NEW POP-UP SHOP IN THE HEART OF MIAMI



    Slated to open on November 1st through December 29th, the pop-up shop will remain open for two months on NW 2nd Ave in the art-friendly district of Wynwood. Coinciding with the shop’s launch, a variety of art-focused events will take place throughout November and December.

    OLIVER GALS NEW POP-UP SHOP IN THE HEART OF MIAMI



    The shop will feature original, limited-edition Oliver Gal pieces, including collaborative artwork created using mixed media techniques—many of which have never been seen before. “We wanted to launch an innovative movement within our local art market,” Lola says. “These are truly one-of-a-kind creations.”

    OLIVER GALS NEW POP-UP SHOP IN THE HEART OF MIAMI



    The pop-up gallery will be featured at the same time as Art Basel, the annual art exhibition and cultural mecca held in Miami. Art Basel showcases modern and contemporary art for a global audience of collectors, museum curators and art aficionados, making it the ideal platform for Oliver Gal’s unique works.

    The sisters describe the team’s art as “industrial chic.” The pieces blend urban and abstract motifs, making them well-suited to contemporary spaces. “They are timeless pieces with a modern edge,” Lola says.

Many of the pieces are limited-edition and exclusive to Oliver Gal.

    Abstract Paintings from Artist Eileen Hickey


    Artist Eileen Hickey
    Like many artists, Eileen drew inspiration from the surrounding waters discovering the duality of the calm healing waters and its deadly, storming waves. Conflict, cognitive dissonance, and duality are reflected in Eileen's paintings which question and disrupt a viewer's typical understanding and experience of a painting. Eileen resolves the seeming disparity between Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, and Pop cryptically: "I want to paint things that are seen but not seen."


    Artist Eileen Hickey
    Eileen Hickey, recently added to her list of achievements with her comedy shows and her “Hell Yeah” foundation. Comedy, Hickey’s second love, is a passion that evolved as a coping mechanism in response to her divorce. “I call them marriage years, like dog years. I was 25 when I got married and 3 years later I was 50! I’m really 35!” joked the NYC artist during her debut performance on the topic of marriage and divorce.



    Hickey wants to lighten the divorce burden that psychologically can cripple both men and women. She has launched a series of artistic endeavors to achieve her goal. “Hell Yeah!” her calling card, is the foundations name. The Hell Yeah foundation is a helpful resource for individuals that intend on getting married. It serves as a tool to keep people informed on their rights and provide insight on the nasty side of marriage that some see when going through a divorce.

    U.S. Department of Arts and Culture Hosts "People's State of the Union" Events in 150 Communities Across the Country

    Following Obama's Speech, Thousands Gather to Share Stories, Inspiring Poetic Address Broadcast from New York City's Bowery Poetry Club


    New York, NY (January, 14, 2015) – Following President Obama’s State of the Union address on January 20, the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture (USDAC)* will host a week of events in schools, theaters and community centers across the country in which citizens will contribute their own stories to form the first-ever People’s State of the Union (PSOTU).

    At story circles convened in over 150 communities between January 23-30, participants will gather to share stories reflecting on the state of the union as experienced in their own lives and communities. As a way to augment the President’s annual speech, these stories will be collected and shared through an online portal, supplemented by commentary from the USDAC National Cabinet. Inspired by these stories, a group of award-winning poets will create and deliver a Poetic Address to the Nation, broadcast live from New York City’s Bowery Poetry Club on February 1, 2015. Contributing poets include: Margaret Randall, Patricia Smith, Bob Holman, Luis Rodriguez, E. Ethelbert Miller, Claudia Rankine, Joy Harjo, Eileen Myles, and many others.

    The People’s State of the Union is the first in a series of new civic rituals planned by the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture.

    WHAT: People’s State of the Union story circles and Poetic Address
    WHO: Hundreds of individuals and civic organizations, partial list below
    WHEN: Story circles: January 23-30, 2015
    Poetic Address: February 1, 2015, 6PM ET

    WHERE: Story circles: over 150 communities, partial list below;
    Poetic Address: Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery, New York, NY
    Attend Event: http://psotu.bpt.me/
    Livestream: peoplesstateoftheunion.usdac.us
    Online Conversation: #PSOTU, #USDAC

    “We're holding these events across the country because we believe that democracy is a conversation, not a monologue,” said USDAC Chief Instigator Adam Horowitz. “Instead of a speech spoken by one, the Poetic Address is a work of art created by many.”

    USDAC Minister of Poetry and Endangered Language Protection Bob Holman, an award-winning writer and creator of Language Matters (soon to be broadcast on PBS), is leading creation of the collaborative address inspired by the stories.

    A small sampling of participating communities and organizations includes:

    Ferguson Youth Initiative (Ferguson, MO)
    Gender and Sexuality Center and the University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, IL)
    Oregon Shakespeare Festival (Ashland, OR)

    Migrant Education Program (Salinas, CA)
    University of Nebraska Social Practice Coalition (Lincoln, NE)
    Bronx Music Heritage Center Lab (Bronx, NY)
    Wise Fool Circus (Peñasco, NM)

    “Coming out of a year as divisive as this past one,” Horowitz continued, “it is more important than ever that we forge new bonds of empathy by truly listening to one another’s stories.” Anyone who wants to take part but can’t attend a story circle is invited to submit a story online during the week of Jan. 23-30. please visit http://usdac.us/psotu

    ABOUT THE USDAC *The USDAC is the nation’s newest people-powered department, committed to harnessing the power of art and culture to cultivate empathy, equity, and social imagination. Launched in October, 2013 (and immediately attacked by Glenn Beck), the USDAC is a growing national action network of artists and cultural organizers, embodying the values, actions, and policies that could and should shape any agency representing the public interest in art and culture. This past summer, USDAC Cultural Agents hosted large-scale community “Imaginings” in eleven cities, bringing together more than 2,500 participants to envision their communities 20 years on, when “mission has been accomplished” for the department. The USDAC is not a government agency. Learn more at www.usdac.us.

    The Nasher Sculpture Center presents the first retrospective in more than 20 years of the renowned American sculptor, Melvin Edwards, including never-before exhibited works


    renowned American sculptor, Melvin Edwards



    DALLAS, Texas (October 20, 2014) – The Nasher Sculpture Center announces the exhibition Melvin Edwards: Five Decades, a retrospective of the renowned American sculptor, January 31-May10, 2015. Melvin Edwards’s career spans crucial periods of upheaval and change in American culture and society, and his sculpture provides a critical bridge between modernist techniques and materials and contemporary approaches to the art object. In 1988, New York Times critic Michael Brenson lauded Edwards as “one of the best American sculptors… [and] one of the least known.” Over the past five decades, Edwards has produced a remarkable body of work redefining the modernist tradition of welded sculpture.

    “Exhibiting the work of Melvin Edwards is a tremendous privilege for the Nasher,” says Director Jeremy Strick. “His expansive, decades-long sculptural practice in welded steel fuses vital Modernist traditions with deeply held personal and social convictions, and the results are uniquely powerful artistic responses to some of the most volatile and pivotal events of our times. In addition to its historical and political relevance, Edwards’s work also has important connections with the radical experimentation and international outlook of contemporary art, positioning him as an artist of rare versatility and reach.”

    renowned American sculptor, Melvin Edwards



    Melvin Edwards: Five Decades bears witness to Edwards’s profound commitment, from the very beginning of his career, to an art that is both abstract and deeply engaged with meaning and expression. A truly international artist well before the advent of today’s global art world, Edwards has brought his experiences of other cultures and languages, particularly those of Africa, into his work, to explore the varied ways that art can forge bonds of connection and kinship. He is best known for his Lynch Fragments, an ongoing series of small-scale reliefs begun in Los Angeles in the early 1960s and born out of the social and political turmoil of the civil rights movement. Incorporating tools and other familiar objects, such as chains, locks, and ax heads, Edwards’s Lynch Fragments are abstract yet evocative, summoning a range of artistic, cultural, and historical references.

    Melvin Edwards: Five Decades will feature a broad selection of Lynch Fragments, including early manifestations, which spoke to racial tensions and political and cultural struggles of the 1960s; Edwards’s return to the series in the early 1970s, during the Vietnam War; and a group from 1978 to the present, exploring memory, history, and African and African American culture.

    renowned American sculptor, Melvin Edwards



    Presenting a full range of Edwards’s achievements, Melvin Edwards: Five Decades – the first retrospective of his work in more than twenty years – will reveal that his career has extended far beyond the Lynch Fragments. Major large-scale sculptures of the 1960s, such as Chaino, The Lifted X, and August the Squared Fire, will be included, as well as his Rockers of the 1970s, which incorporate movement and, in some cases, sound.

    Melvin Edwards: Five Decades will also feature many works not seen since their creation, and in some cases never before exhibited. With the artist’s cooperation, the Nasher will recreate the groundbreaking 1970 exhibition of his barbed-wire sculptures originally shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Several large sculptures have been restored for the Nasher’s presentation, most notably the first Rocker, Homage to Coco, which was in the 1970 Whitney sculpture annual. Also on view will be sculptures Edwards has made in Senegal over the past decade, as well as a selection of maquettes and prototypes reflecting his long career in public sculpture, and rarely exhibited works on paper, including sketchbooks and collaborations with the artist’s late wife, the celebrated poet and performer Jayne Cortez.

    renowned American sculptor, Melvin Edwards



    Organized by the Nasher’s Associate Curator Catherine Craft, the exhibition will travel to other US museums and will be accompanied by a richly illustrated scholarly catalogue with essays by Craft, scholars Alex Potts and Tobias Wofford, a conversation with the artist, and a catalogue of Edwards’s public sculptures by Nasher Assistant Curator Leigh A. Arnold. Edwards will speak about his work and practice as part of the Nasher’s 360 Speaker Series on January 31, 2015.

    About Melvin Edwards
    Born in Houston, Texas in 1937, Edwards attended college in Los Angeles, graduating with a BFA from the University of Southern California. In 1967, he moved to New York, where he lives today, dividing his time between his studio in Plainfield, New Jersey and residences, with studios, in Accord, New York and Dakar, Senegal. His work is held in many US museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Art Institute of Chicago; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

    Melvin Edwards: Five Decades is supported in part by a major grant from the Henry Luce Foundation and by the generous support of Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger.

    About the Nasher Sculpture Center:
    Open since 2003 and located in the heart of the Dallas Arts District, the Nasher Sculpture Center is home to one of the finest collections of modern and contemporary sculptures in the world, the Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection, featuring more than 300 masterpieces by Calder, Giacometti, Matisse, Picasso, Rodin, and more.

    Spray Cans in the Gallery: The Legendary Fashion Moda & the Fun Gallery A Panel Discussion

    Moving Murals: Henry Chalfant & Martha Cooper’s All City Graffiti Archive, running through July 10th, 2014.

    ©Henry Chalfant


    Thursday, June 19th 7pm
    Admission: $8 online; $10 at the door
    Visit www.citylore.org to purchase tickets.

    On Thursday June 19, the City Lore Gallery will be hosting a panel discussion, Spray Cans in the Gallery: The Legendary Fashion Moda & the Fun Gallery, about the transition of graffiti from the streets into the fine art world. Panelists include:

    Patti Astor of the Fun Gallery
    Jane Dixon, artist
    Stefan Eins of Fashion Moda
    Crash, graffiti writer


    Street art has long been a presence in New York City, never more prominent than during the “Golden Age of Graffiti” in the late 70’s and early 80’s. During this time period graffiti transitioned from an underground art form to the mainstream contemporary art world, while retaining its presence on the streets. At the cutting edge of this movement was Fashion Moda, Stefan Eins’ South Bronx outpost of the international art world that introduced neighborhood street artists, photographers and filmmakers to artists from downtown and Europe, creating an electrically exciting salon that profoundly influenced all who took part. Downtown, the scene was represented by Patty Astor, who hosted shows in her East Village storefront, the Fun Gallery, that brought together the artists, b-boys and MCs from uptown, the Bronx and East New York with the East Village culturati, the club scene and art and film world.

    Photographed during the ‘70s and early ‘80s, Chalfant and Cooper’s images of graffitied subway cars are among the major documents of American popular culture in the late twentieth century. Moving Murals presents the images in a wall to wall mosaic of over 850 muraled trains, creating an ultimate All City graffiti trainyard environment. Complimenting the murals: wallpapered photographs of the writers in their element.

    Moving Murals Closing Program:

    (BPRW) Michael Francis Gibson: Thoughts on Culture and Black History Month



    Michael Francis Gibson


    (BLACK PR WIRE) – Scholar and art critic Michael Francis Gibson has published over fifteen books, including essays on culture and the power of images. A fierce defender of racial equality and an arbiter for compassion in social and political relations, he is currently putting the finishing touches on a film script that will be of tremendous interest to friends of the African American community in the U.S. as well as the world at large. Gibson, who lives in Paris, co-wrote the script for Lech Majewski’s extraordinary film, The Mill and the Cross. Gibson also holds a lifetime membership in the NAACP and is the adoptive parent of two black children who enjoyed the benefit of growing up in France. You may hear Michael Gibson’s interview with Sally David at writersforgood.com.

    Majewski’s film The Mill and The Cross (2011; with Charlotte Rampling, Michael York, and Rutger Hauer http://www.themillandthecross.com) is a stunning recreation of Gibson’s book of the same title, an in-depth analysis of Bruegel’s inspired painting “The Way to Calvary.” The painting, according to Gibson, while relating the passion of Christ, also evokes the sort of scene that Bruegel himself too often witnessed: the execution of a Flemish Protestant by the militia of the King of Spain. The New York Times noted that Gibson’s book, a detailed analysis of a single painting, is "as readable and riveting as a first-rate spy thriller." http://www.nytimes.com/books/01/05/20/bib/010520.rv081854.html The book and the film, both available on Amazon, draw a vivid and detailed portrait of daily life in 16th century Europe and provide a forceful commentary on religious persecution. Read other books by Gibson http://www.the-university-of-levana-press.com. Contact him via writersforgood@gmail.com.

    Gibson’s wit and compassion are well represented in his new script, a lively treatment of a serious theme: the racism African Americans experienced in the U.S. before the 1960's and Martin Luther King's rise to prominence. All that Gibson will currently say about the script is that “It offers wonderful roles for black actors/actresses, including a phenomenal lead for a woman approximately 58 years of age—the genius who helps change everything for African Americans in the United States. And—there’s a happy ending you will love.” A film that combines Martin Luther King’s work, magic, and the end of racism—who can resist it?
