Andreas Gursky Gagosian AM 19

Openings: Andreas Gursky @ Gagosian (HK)

While in AM was in Hong Kong a couple months ago, besides attending the KAWS solo, the Art Hong Kong fair, an event curated by Suitman, the Daydreaming with… show, and Ai Yamaguchi’s showing, we also stopped by the Gagosian Gallery to check out Andreas Gursky’s first ever exhibition in Asia. The selection of photographs combine his most recent work with earlier work while focusing on his travels in the region including shots from Japan, Thailand, China, and North Korea. Some the the first pictures he made were created […]

Videos: Andreas Gursky @ Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (Denmark)

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, which despite its name is located in Denmark, is currently hosting 40 giant photographs and a number of smaller works created by the world-famous photographer Andreas Gursky. We last saw a large collection of his works back in 2010 in Los Angeles, and certainly recommend seeing in person this retrospective from the genius of large-format photography if you happen to be in the area. If not, take a look at the video above for a taste of what you are […]

Frieze Art Fair 2011: Highlights (Part II)

Following our earlier coverage of London’s Frieze Art Fair, AM made a return visit before it closed last weekend to spend a few more hours considering the curation and presentation of exhibitor booths along with the individual works on display. See more commentary and additional photos of what caught our eye after the jump. By way of advance notice, in more traditional working environments, a couple of images (especially in the gallery section) would probably be deemed NSFW. So don’t blame us if a colleague […]

Frieze ’11: White Cube Gallery

The recent opening of a third gallery space in London confirms White Cube ongoing strength, and its presence at the Frieze Art Fair is nothing less than spectacular. The booth features some impressive works by the gallery’s roster of artists such as Jake and Dinos Chapman, Marc Quinn, Damien Hirst, Andreas Gursky, and Tracey Emin to name a few. In particular, what caught our eye included The Chapman brothers presenting a controversial version of Mary and Child entitled the Milk of Human Weakness, while the bronze […]

LACMA Acquires Gursky Ocean Photographs

According to the New York Times, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has acquired four Andreas Gursky photographs from the artist’s Gagosian Gallery exhibition, which we covered here.  It is unknown how much it paid, but the photographs, based on existing satellite imagery, carried the asking price of $680,000 apiece. LACMA received the funds from an anonymous source and from Steven F. Roth, executive vice president of the World Oil Corporation. The timely acquisition is of particular relevance and urgency given the current oil […]

Openings: Andreas Gursky @ Gagosian Gallery (Beverly Hills)

This past March 4th will end up being a significant date in the history of Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills. The standard-bearer of all contemporary art galleries in the world premiered a major addition to their 90210 space. In addition, Andreas Gursky, one of the most well-known artists working in the photography medium, opened his newest major solo exhibition at the gallery. The expansion, designed by Richard Meier, features 5,000 square-feet of gallery space added on to the already existing 6,600 square-foot building. The new […]

Openings: Shaquille O’Neal – “Size Does Matter” @ Flag Art Foundation

Shaquille O’Neal’s curatorial debut opened at Flag Art Foundation this past Friday to a mass of curious art fans. A line filled the lobby just for the elevator up to the duplex gallery space on the 9th and 10th floor. The massive gallery space was justly utilized to house both the ginormous and microscopic pieces that represented the show’s theme “Size Matters”. “The Big Curator” did a nice job not only picking some of the top names in the industry, but also selecting some very relevant […]

Shaquille O’Neal curates “Size DOES Matters” @ Flag Art Foundation

NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal is known by many nicknames: “the Big Aristotle”, “the MDE”, “the Big Shaqtus”, “The Big Baryshnikov” and we can now dub him “the Big Curator”? Yup, “the Diesel” is putting yet another one of his “talents” (although sounds like he got some help) to use as he’s curating an exhibition this Friday, February 19th at the Flag Art Foundation in New York. On paper, Shaq certainly seems qualified to be involved with the show, entitled “Size DOES Matters”, as he’s definitely has dealt […]

Openings: Louis Vuitton Exhibition – A Passion for Creation (Hong Kong)

Last night, Louis Vuitton premiered a show they curated entitled A Passion for Creation at the Hong Kong Museum of Art with a shortlist of some of the top names in Contemporary Art.  Some of the artists included Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jeff Koons, Paul Chan, Cao-Fei, Yang Fudong, Gilbert & George, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Andreas Gursky, Pierre Huyghe, Bertrand Lavier, and Christian Marclay. Of course LV homeboys Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and Stephen Sprouse had a “special section” of their own, comprising of Vuitton’s antique trunks and […]

Lehman Brothers to sell art collection

We’ve all heard of the unfortunate events to hit the economy in recent months with major financial investment firms going bankrupt and many assets falling to zero. Apparently these major financial firms have been some of the biggest investors in the art world. Recently, Lehman asked a bankruptcy judge to approve a 20k payment to its art handlers in order to start showing their collection to potential buyers. Lehman needs sell off part of art collection to raise at least 8 million dollars. It seems that […]
