NGA
Segnalato da Arte & Leonardo Basile






 

Since 1909, major artists from F.T. Marinetti, Pablo Picasso, and Man Ray to Ellsworth Kelly, Adrian Piper, and Robert Gober have co-opted, mimicked, defused, and memorialized newspapers. The exhibition examines the myriad manifestations of this phenomenon through 65 collages, paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, and photographs by European and American artists. The show also includes a large-scale multimedia installation by Mario Merz.

This exhibition—the first of its kind in America—serves as an introduction to the remarkable artistic community that flourished in imperial Augsburg. Some 100 works, almost all taken from the Gallery’s own collections, include imperial propaganda, humanist subjects, and devotional works. Recognizably the product of imperial Augsburg, this distinctive body of work also celebrates artistic virtuosity and invention.

Since the introduction of photography in 1839, portraiture has been one of the most widely practiced forms of the medium. Starting in the early 20th century, however, some photographers began to question whether a single image could adequately capture the complexity of an individual. Arranged both chronologically and thematically, the exhibition features 153 works by 20 artists who photographed the same subjects—primarily friends, family, and themselves—over the course of days, months, or years to create some of the most provocative and revealing portraits of their time.

Organized to coincide with the John Cage Centennial Festival Washington, DC, this exhibition features six prints from the Gallery’s collection that explore the influential composer, writer, and artist’s experimental, chance-determined approach to creating visual art. The selection highlights Cage’s unconventional use of fire as a printmaking medium and his systematic employment of stones as templates for tracing. The Gallery’s fall lecture series opens with "PASSAGE 7: John Cage"—incidents, texts, conversations, and music, presented by Jenny Lin, pianist, and Roger Reynolds, University Professor, University of California, San Diego, on September 9 at 2:00.

Narrated by actor Ethan Hawke, this film was made in conjunction with the exhibition George Bellows, on view through October 8. In a 20-year career cut short by his death at age 42, Bellows depicted an America on the move. Available to view online in two parts, the documentary includes original footage shot in New York City and Maine; examples of Bellows' paintings, drawings, and prints; and archival footage and photographs.
 
 

 

FILM EVENT
El Velador

The Gallery presents the Washington premiere of El Velador, acclaimed Mexican filmmaker Natalia Almada's documentary about the daily life of the velador (caretaker) of a cemetery for drug lords in Culiacan, Mexico. Observational filmmaking at its most artistic, developed through long takes and careful sound recording, El Velador is serene and deferential, "an acknowledgment of the chasm between our lives and theirs."

Il Ponte Casa d'Aste presenta l'Asta di Fotografia "Da Luigi Ghirri a Tracey Emin"

Ad aprire la stagione primaverile delle aste in Palazzo Crivelli sarà il neonato dipartimento di Fotografia, con una selezione di circa 300 lotti dei più celebri nomi nazionali ed internazionali.
Tra i fotografi italiani della seconda metà del '900 Luigi Ghirri è presente con undici dei suoi scatti più iconici, alcuni di questi stampati nel 1992, anno della sua morte, in occasione della mostra "Luigi Ghirri, Versailles" a Parigi ed esposti anche nella retrospettiva dell'autore tenutasi nel 2013 al MAXXI.
Di Gabriele Basilico e Berengo Gardin andranno all'incanto alcuni lavori dedicati alle architetture e ai parchi di Milano; di Mario Giacomelli una decina di scatti e la serie Pretini (val. 3.000 - 3.500 €); di Mimmo Jodice alcune delle immagini più rappresentative nelle quali la mitologia e la statuaria classica ritrovano energia espressiva grazie al forte contrasto di luci e ombre che caratterizza i suoi lavori.
