In this film, we have Mapplethorpe in his own words, not the rose-tinted memories that Smith gave us in Just Kids. He is openly a man of sociopathic ambition who wants sex, fame and money, and would use anyone to get them. That countercultural drive echoed what was going on in the 1980s so much that it would become indistinguishable from mainstream culture. When people talk about the end of the New York scene, that’s what they mean.
Since its founding in 2005, United States Artists has awarded over $21 million to almost 450 artists. Among its extensive list of fellows are Mary Heilmann, Glenn Ligon, Joan Jonas, William Pope.L, and Allan Sekula.
The online art market has continued to grow strongly (up 24% to $3.27 billion) despite the global art market slowing in 2015.
Sotheby’s and Christie’s do really well in our newly created Online Art Platform Ranking 2016, but have they done enough or are they still stuck in a time warp?
A sense of relief rippled through Sotheby’s elegant Manhattan headquarters as “Untitled (New York City),” a celebrated painting by Cy Twombly, ultimately set an auction record for the artist.
For behind the heady gavel price was a hard business reality: even as the crowd sipped champagne that evening, Sotheby’s was still frantically wooing a buyer. In the end, the grand old auction house had to pay for the privilege of selling the masterpiece.
That’s pretty much how it goes in the auction business these days. Like many works of art, the 1968 “Untitled” was sold under what is politely known as the “enhanced hammer,” behind-the-scenes deals that are shifting the balance of power inside the notoriously opaque market for art.
Silvano Vinceti, head of the National Committee for Cultural Heritage, believes that the Mona Lisa bears several striking similarities to Gian Giocomo Caprotti, known as Salai. He also examined infra-red scans of the world-famous artwork and compared it to other works by the master that Salai was known to have modeled for.
“I think artists are uncomfortable about, and do not wish to have their work discussed in terms of prices and market value, and what is selling and not selling," art dealer Augusto Arbizo, director and partner at New York's 11R gallery, told artnet News in an e-mail. "Prices aren't openly displayed because they want the work discussed in critical terms and historical context. That is why prices are often not so public."
The Oakland Museum of California has opened the exhibition "Altered State: Marijuana in California," which it claims is the first museum show to concentrate on the controversial plant. The show's contents range from fine art to protest posters and multimedia displays exploring the scientific, recreational, medicinal, and even religious aspects of pot.
