Releases: Gerhard Richter, P8-P11 editions

Serpentine Galleries and HENI productions recently teamed up for an exclusive series of limited editions by Gerhard Richter. Based on his Flow paintings which were created by capturing poured enamel paints on a glass surface, these editions are chromatographic prints of high-resolution photographs of the originals, mounted on aluminium. The editions are referred to by the artist as “facsimile objects” as this series is distinct from the originals in a number of ways – either the artist has decided to present them differently, or they represent the only version of paintings that no […]

Basel Week Miami ’12: Marian Goodman @ Art Basel

Flanked on two walls by monumental works by Gerhard Richter and Julie Mehretu, Marian Goodman Gallery’s booth at Art Basel Miami Beach provided spectacular viewing for all that visited its booth. Art market man of the year Gerhard Richter’s striped piece was from his series using a digital process and provided a taste for those that missed his most recent show with Goodman. Three photographs by Rineke Dijkstra covered one wall and a wall text by Lawrence Weiner were just some of the important artists’ works that were seemingly everywhere you looked at […]

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.

Frieze ’11: Overview

London’s Frieze week kicked off properly on Wednesday 12 October with the preview for Frieze Art Fair in Regent’s Park. AM has long been a Frieze enthusiast. The calibre of its exhibitors and their booths makes most other contemporary art fairs look provincial in comparison. Conscious of the international spotlight, the big fish bring out the big guns and do whatever else they can to retain their dominance, while the ambitious smaller galleries pull out the stops to try raising the bar even higher for […]
