LONDON – 20 JUNE 2019 – This summer, Phillips London will transform its Berkeley Square gallery into an immersive landscape with HYSTERICAL, a selling exhibition in collaboration with renowned set designer and artist Gary Card. HYSTERICAL will bridge Gary’s creative wonderland as a backdrop to a selection of works available for private sale by contemporary artists including Erik Parker, Cindy Sherman, Kenny Scharf, Ugo Rondinone, Joyce Pensato, Harold Ancart, Nicolas Party, Andre Butzer, and Paul McCarthy. The works will be exhibited in harmony with Gary’s designs, focusing on the farcical and neurotic within contemporary art. HYSTERICAL will open to the public from 18 July to 21 August 2019.

Miety Heiden, Phillips’ Head of Private Sales, said, “By joining forces with Gary Card we are going to flood our London gallery with colour, fun and audacity – creating an unforgettable experience that will take audiences on a vivid journey. We have a clear roster of artists in mind for this show, one that will co-exist and complement the environment Gary has created. The set design is not just the scenery or the background – it is part of the narrative material that will enchant audiences and transport them to an alternate universe. Works will be presented in a new light, environment and context – HYSTERICAL is an all-encompassing work of art.”

Gary Card, said: “I am thrilled to be partnering with Phillips on this. They are a powerhouse in the art world and to have my name attached to them is a great honour. Having free reign of their space in Berkeley Square is a dream come true, as it’s one of the best spaces to present art in London as no space comes close in scale and visibility. As a set designer it’s a privilege to be able to inhabit and transform a space of this scale. I want the viewer to be thrown into a darkly comic world, part psychedelic fever dream, part saccharine cartoon chaos. Like finding a tarantula in a bunch of bananas these works capture something inherently sinister while appearing equally absurd and disarming.”

Known for his unforgettable dreamlike scenes, Card has worked with major brands such as Nike, Hermès, Balenciaga, Comme des Garçons, to designing album covers for Paul McCartney and costumes for Lady Gaga. In parallel to building the environment, Card will be creating a new site-specific sculpture and a series of prints. Phillips will set up a shop where visitors can buy limited edition toys and collectables by Card.

Traveling to St. Moritz? Vito Schnabel Gallery presents Helen Pashgain's "NewLenses and Spheres July 16ht. St. Moritz.

Press Release


Juy 16 - August 31, 2019
Vito Schnabel Gallery
Via Maistra 37, St. Mortiz

Beginning July 16, 2019, Vito Schnabel Gallery is pleased to present Helen Pashgian: New Lenses and Spheres, the gallery’s first exhibition devoted to the West Coast artist, a pioneer and preeminent figure of the vaunted Light and Space movement that emerged in and around Los Angeles in the late 1960s. This is Pashgian’s first solo exhibition in Switzerland.
The exhibition presents eight new sculptures, extending Pashgian’s exploration of her earliest forms—her signature discs and spheres—and revealing the artist at the height of her technical prowess as a true innovator in the development of the industrial plastic arts. Manifesting a tension between the material and immaterial, illusion and perception, Pashgian creates objects that dissolve their own physicality as they materialize the subtly shifting, luminous, and translucent qualities of light.

Hi All Traveling this summer? In Detroit? Catch !!! From Camelot to Kent State; Pop Art, 1960-1975 @ the Detroit Institute of Arts.

From Camelot to Kent State: Pop Art, 1960-1975

In the 1960s, a new generation of artists became known as Pop artists, based on their use of popular mass media—advertisements, logos, comic strips, and television. Playfully embracing new technologies, and working with master printers and publishers, Pop artists created large editions of fine-art prints.
At the beginning of the decade, many Pop artists celebrated American modern culture, echoing the optimism under the young President John F. Kennedy, a time often called “Camelot.” As the decade unfolded, more artists turned to criticism of the Vietnam War and tragedies such as the shooting at Kent State University in 1970. 
From Camelot to Kent State: Pop Art, 1960-1975, includes seventy-three prints, drawings, multiples, and sculpture primarily from the DIA collection. It highlights artists including Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Marisol, Corita Kent, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, and Andy Warhol.
  From Camelot to Kent State: Pop Art, 1960-1975 is organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts.

Hi All 20th Century & Contemporary Art Sale Up for Sale June 28th! Get your paddles Ready

Phillips Announces Highlights from the London Sales of
20th Century & Contemporary Art

Including Works from the Miles & Shirley Fiterman Collection;
Property from the Collection of Alex Rodriguez;
And Property from the Estate of Ryan Brant

As well as a Historically Important Luc Tuymans Painting

Luc Tuymans, Schwarzheide
Luc Tuymans b. 1958
Schwarzheide, 1986
Estimate: £800,000-1,000,000

LONDON – 14 JUNE 2019 – Phillips’ June sales of 20th Century & Contemporary Art will offer works from a number of private collections, including the Miles & Shirley Fiterman Collection, property from the Estate of Ryan Brant, and property from the collection of American baseball star Alex Rodriguez. The Evening Sale, taking place on 27 June, will present 36 lots of Modern, Post-War, and Contemporary Art, and will be followed by the Day Sale on 28 June, comprising 160 lots.

Luc Tuymans’s Schwarzheide, 1986, leads this season’s Evening Sale with unparalleled conceptual and historical significance. The painting – essentially a landscape depicting a line of sparse pine trees – appears to present an innocuous subject. However, taking its name after a World War II concentration camp, Schwarzheide belongs to a cycle of works that Tuymans commenced in the latter half of the 1980s, touching on themes of loss and violence in the context of the Holocaust. Tuymans has said of the work, “I wanted to make my paintings look old from the start, which is important because they are about memory.”Having resided in the same private collection since its execution, the work has been exhibited extensively over the last three decades, including showings at Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, The Tate Modern in London, the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, and at Documenta IX in Kassel in 1992. It has recently been reproduced as an immense marble mosaic at the Palazzo Grassi, Venice, on the occasion of the artist’s solo exhibition La Pelle.

Worth a trip to to see "The Van Gogh and the Sunflowers" at the Van Gogh Museum June 12-September 1 2019! Book your tickets !!!

Zonnebloemen_uitsnede_PB_LR.jpgCreditline: Vincent van Gogh, Sunflowers (detail), 1889. Oil on canvas, 95 × 73 cm. Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam (Vincent van Gogh Foundation). 
If you have already registered for this opening, please find this email as not sent. 

Dear journalist,

We are pleased to invite you to the press preview of Van Gogh and the Sunflowers.

Sunflowers (1889), one of Vincent van Gogh’s best-known paintings, will be the centrepiece of the summer exhibition Van Gogh and the Sunflowers. The presentation will highlight the flower’s significance to the painter and what he hoped to achieve with his Sunflowers. Van Gogh himself thought that this work was among the best things he had done.
A great deal of study has been devoted to the masterpiece from the Van Gogh Museum’s collection in recent years. The exhibition will show what the latest technical research has contributed to our knowledge of Van Gogh’s working methods, the discolouration of certain pigments and the painting’s conservation history and current condition. The public will also have a first opportunity to see the back of the masterpiece, including the wooden strip that Van Gogh himself added to create more space for the sunflowers.

Shoe Box mLet me know Andrea Bersagliere will have a one day exhibit in NYC Truthfully I did not see the date, follow the link

Andrea Bersaglieri finishes her residency at Shoebox Projects with te(r)ra desideratum a one day exhibition of brand new work

660 South Avenue 21 #3, Los Angeles 90031
Sunday, June 16, 2019 3 – 6 PM
Humans have a predetermined aesthetic preference for nature. It is an evolutionary remnant. But the formal, conceptual, emotional relationship between urbanites and nature is fraught with contradictions. These contradictions are the inspiration for Andrea Bersaglieri's Artist-in-residence exhibition, te(r)ra desideratum, at Shoebox Projects, May 27 to June 16.

The trees, the shrubs and grasses, were nearly all planted here by someone in an attempt to simulate the ideal savannah. We know that, but their presence still stirs our ingrained unshakable appreciation of the aesthetic. They have become our “substitute nature”. The context in which we experience nature seems to amplify its importance. The mundane frameworks within which nature manages to exists here concentrates its beauty and power.

Going from tree to plant to weed to soil looking for, looking at, trying to understand. Bersaglieri uses traditional observational drawing methods in an effort to record this evolution and understand it.

Please join us for the closing reception of te(r)ra desideratum on June 16, 3-6pm.

Andrea Bersaglieri was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area and came to Southern California to attend California State University, Long Beach where she earned an MFA in Drawing and Painting in 1991. She has lived, worked and studied in Florence, Rome, and Philadelphia. Andrea teaches Drawing and Painting at Cerritos College and California State University, Long Beach. Her most recent work deals with our earnest, often misguided attempt to encourage, yet control nature in suburban Los Angeles. Her work has been exhibited locally, nationally and internationally.
