NY Times on But a Storm Is Blowing From Paradise: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa.

30 Aug 2016
Last spring, the Guggenheim’s board of trustees abruptly severed contact with the Gulf Labor Coalition, an international watchdog group monitoring the living and working conditions of migrant laborers in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, where the Guggenheim Foundation is building a new Frank Gehry-designed museum. The move, and the protests that followed, happened to coincide with the third and last of the museum’s UBS Map Global Art Initiative group exhibitions in New York, this one called “But a Storm Is Blowing From Paradise: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa.”

29 Apr 2016
New Wild Painters
German Neoexpressionism From The 1980's
30 April to 23 October 2016, Groninger Museum

New Wild Painters will present an extensive overview of the figurative painting that blossomed at the beginning of the 1980s in what was at that time still West Germany. From 30 April, the Groninger Museum showcases this intense work in New Wild Painters. Sure to spark conversation, the exhibition focuses on the Neue Wilde groups of artists that were active in Cologne, Berlin, Düsseldorf and Hamburg. This art was part of a broad, international trend whereby in many countries, young, ‘wild’ painters rebelled against the climate of the art world at the time. The paintings are often rough and aggressive and sometimes downright absurd, but almost always humorous and thought-provoking.

Art for Your Walls: Installations by Maharam Digital Projects, The Wall Street Journal

25 Feb 2016
What happens when art and interior design collide? That’s the question answered by Maharam Digital Projects, a venture that invites artists and designers to make work that can be custom sized and reproduced expressly for walls. The program has gathered steam with the involvement of independent curator Cecilia Alemani (Frieze Projects, High Line Art), and five new pieces (by Marcel Dzama, Kristin Baker and others) will debut this spring. Available this month: Sapucaí (Carnaval) by Assume Vivid Astro Focus. “I look for artists who see an opportunity to expand their language,” says Alemani, who fantasizes about the collaborations popping up in one particular place: “The walls at the New York City airports!”

Italian artist David Casini's first exhibition with Plutschow & Felchlin, "Light, measured. One soon gets used to it," used the gallery's sunlight-flooded central space to showcase eight small glass vitrines, within which organic objects met man-made materials in spare, airy arrangements. Each case is unique, but they all stand on slim, brass-limbed bases and have bottoms containing a pietra dura pattern in marble from the Arno River in Tuscany. Inside of one such case, from the 2013 series "Momento in cui tutto questo ha un spazio" (A time when all of this has a place), is part of a small, barbed fruit with two curling tails. It has been sliced, and its flat edge brightly painted and adhered to a side of the glass, where the fruit looks potentially still alive...
