MODERN FRENCH IMPRESSIONISM: L'ATELIER DE PIERRE VAN DIJK


Maison / Atelier Pierre ;  a Gallery in France • 15 DECEMBER 
Since renovating our little maisonette in the Medieval town of Beynac, France, I've wanted to share something very special with you.  It's been a long time coming, this post, and I am quite thrilled to finally let you in on a little secret, or rather, an undiscovered treasure.
This small, picturesque village situated on a steep cliff, has been a destination for artists since the 19th century.  We know for certain that French Impressionist painter, Paul Signac sojourned in Beynac; and we also know that another French Impressionist, Camille Pisarro, spent time in our village back in the 1800's.  I was recently thrilled to discover, via one of our guests, that one of my favorite photographers, Henri Cartier-Bresson, also visited and photographed Beynac back in the 60's.  What I wouldn't give to take a walk with him down the bumpy, cobblestone path…

Radical Women

‘Radical Women’ at the Hammer Museum Is the Kind of Show That Art Critics Live For It leaves you wanting more, and asking questions.



Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985” at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, is not just a fantastic exhibition. It’s the kind of exhibition that people always say we need more of—as regular as a ticking clock—every time the latest selfie-courting contemporary-art spectacular provokes a new spasm of anguish from critics about the decline of the museum. Based on six years of research, “Radical Women” is a serious and scholarly show. And yet at the same time it feels like its own kind of crowd-pleaser. You don’t have to choose between being smart and being popular if you’re telling a story that feels necessary. And “Radical Women” has necessary stories to spare.

$ 400K Fish Balloons

Philippe Parreno's $ 400K Fish Balloons are a hit with collectors (and children) at Art Basel in Miami BeachThe fish of the French artist comes with a number of interesting maintenance requirements. Julia Halperin , 7 december 2017
Tucked between the gangways of the Miami Beach Convention Center, one woman has the best or the worst job on the entire fair: balloon wrestler.
She has the task not to float the inflatable fish of the French artist Philippe Parreno from the booth of London-based dealer Pilar Corrias. At Art Basel in Miami Beach, the My Room gallery is Another Fish Bowl (2016), an installation of silkscreen-mylar balloons that float around in the loft as if hanging in water.
Parreno originally created the work as part of his Turbine Hall commission at Tate Modern in London, which was closed in April.

Philippe Parreno's My Room is Another Fish Bowl (2016) with its fish cracker at Art Basel in Miami Beach. But if the hollow turbine hall was an aquarium that gave the fish…
