As well as the themed exhibition ‘Home is where the heart is’, there will be a specially curated photography exhibition featuring limited edition prints donated by David Byrne, Terry O’Neill, Helena Christensen and Derrick Santini. Hassan Hajjaj, whose stunning solo exhibition ‘La Caravane’ opened at Somerset House during Frieze week, to coincide with the 1:54 African contemporary African art fair, has donated a diptych print. Also featured are an exclusive portrait of Prince by Mike Ruiz, donated by Prince’s former Manager Kiran Sharma, a Patron of Arms Around the Child, who commented: “This is such a great photo and one Prince loved. We used it as he lead image on the Welcome2America Tour and it was on billboards in Time Square and well... everywhere. I have proudly had this limited edition piece in my care since then and am now donating it to the Arms around the child art auction to help our children. Signed by the photographer, Mike Ruiz is a remarkable artist, photographer, friend and Prince enjoyed working with him for years. They seemed to totally get one another creatively.”
Two Michael Thompson portraits from a 2010 Arms Around the Child “I Am African” campaign to provide anti- retroviral medicine to HIV+ children are featured, of the charity’s global Ambassador Iman, and her late husband David Bowie: http://www.keepachildalive.org/i_am_african/i_am_african.html
Another highlight of the exhibition is Rob and Nick Carter’s ‘Paint Pigment Photograph’ from their Cibachrome series of unique action photos inspired by the Hindu festival of Holi, capturing paint pigment spontaneously thrown in the air.
Many of the artists have created new work especially for Arms Around the Child, or donated work that fits perfectly with the theme of ‘Home is Where the Heart is”. The exhibition features artworks in several media including sculpture such as Alastair Mackie’s ‘Untitled (heart)’, 2007, a sculpture of a heart created from a modified wasp nest. Mackie re-pulped a single wasp nest and cast it into a mould taken from an anatomical model of a human heart. ‘Untitled (heart)’, is the only remaining artist proof, the others from the edition are in the Damien Hirst, David Roberts and Wellcome Collections.
The exhibition features unique artworks in a variety of media including; Neon: Rebecca Mason’s ‘Fragile’ created using a selection of her friends’ baby scans; Taxidermy: Hannah Matthews’ tortoise with a light housed inside its shell; Jewelry: Andrew Logan’s Ganesha brooch; highly collectable drawings, paintings, prints, collage, and screen- prints by artists and designers including; Zandra Rhodes, who has donated a screen-print of Ayers Rock; Beatrice Brown (from her recent exhibition at Gallery 46); Ann-Marie James, Jamie Reid, anarachist-artist famous for the Sex Pistols ‘Never Mind the Bollocks’ album artwork; and surrealist Nancy Fouts. Pure Evil has donated an artwork aptly named ‘EU Break-Up Nightmare, Romulo Celdran has created a hyperreal drawing of a red heart-shaped lollipop; and Diego Fortunato has given an abstract wall piece.
Ben Summers is donating a large-scale artwork created in collaboration with children at an Arms Around the Child home in West Africa, and Paul Broomfield is exhibiting some of his hand-crafted taxidermy birds housed in bejewelled cabinets alongside colorful paintings created by children during an art workshop he hosted at an Arms Around the Child home in Jaipur.

The auction and exhibition have been organized to raise funds towards a home for orphans who are HIV+, and to support the work of Arms Around The Child looking after children living in extreme adversity in Africa and India.

Looks Great , ANNOUNCING THE LAUNCH OF: ART NASHVILLE


ANNOUNCING THE LAUNCH OF:
ART NASHVILLE

The latest annual destination for the international art world: Nashville, Tennessee.
Art Nashville 2018 will be the city’s first annual international art fair, drawing art lovers and buyers from around the globe, expanding Nashville from Music City to an Art City. 
Art Nashville 2018 will be held downtown, steps away from Broadway, Avenue of the Arts and Music Row!

Art Nashville will host 60+ international art galleries.  Our mission is to host a cross section of Nashville, the old and the new. We want to bring all aspects of Arttogether. 
Art Nashville 2018 will showcase both Nashville the city and Nashville the creative center and highlight its ascension as a blossoming center of the arts and culture.
Music City is becoming globally recognized as a hub for the Arts.  From Nashville’s long history as Music City to its rich culinary scene.  From the Nashville Symphony to the new Ascend Amphitheater, Nashville is Art.

Downtown Nashville keeps blooming, collectives and artist projects and new galleries are popping up. Surrounding areas like East Nashville and Wedgewood/Houston are becoming hubs of creativity. The handful of established galleries on North 5th Avenue as known as Avenue of the Arts showcase international renowned artists as well as emerging local talent.

There is much more to come.  @art_nashville
  
OUR WEBSITE

WHY NASHVILLE?

From its long history as The Music City, it’s rich culinary scene, the many galleries showcasing fine local and international art, the bold Nashville Symphony to the new Ascend Amphitheater, Nashville is art.  As Nashville enjoys an increase in social mobility, living standard, fine and performing arts, it is clear Tennessee’s capital is a cosmopolitan, affluent and sophisticated metropolis is where an art fair of this scale and scope belongs. 
APPLICATION
Deadline: June 1, 2018

CULTURE

Nashville has been ranked as the 2nd most vibrant arts city in the US by the National Center for Arts Research at SMU.  The Frist Center for The Visual Arts and Fifth Avenue of The Arts both have visual art as their major focus, and places Nashville as a steadily growing art market. 
The Tennessee Symphony, Tennessee Performing Arts Center, Nashville Opera, Nashville Ballet, Tennessee Repertory Theatre, Ryman Auditorium, Belcourt Theatre,  all anchor performing arts in Nashville, and demonstrate the value Tennesseans place on high culture and art.

The Art Gallery at Vanderbilt University recently acquired these works to broaden their collection of internationally known artists:

The prestigious Vanderbilt University. 

Arion Press’ Biotherm by Frank O’Hara with lithographs by Jim Dine; Louise Bourgeois’ and Arthur Miller’s Homely Girl, A Life, published by Peter Blum Editions; Paesaggi by Mimmo Paladino, published by Waddington Graphics; Leslie Dill’s A Word Made Flesh and her Homage to N.S., published by Landfall Press; and Enrique Chagoya’s The Enlightened Savage, published by Trillium Press; as well as graphics by artists such as Tjeu Teeuwen, Peter Foolen, Hans Waanders, Kees Verbeck, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Richard Long, Joseph Kosuth, Roni Horn, Mona Hatoum, Hamish Fulton, and Sol LeWitt.

ECONOMY

Nashville is booming.  It has seen job growth outpace population growth, enjoys a real estate market second to none, with luxury housing at a fraction of the price of other markets, thereby affording high income earners a larger proportion of disposable income.  Nashville has done quite well by the leadership of city and civic leaders, as it continues to grow in its major business sectors of health care, professional sports, music, finance and tech.
  • 63 percent of Downtown Residents make $100,000 - Up 16% from 2014.
  • 47.1% of the Nashville Population is between the ages 30 and 64 – an ideal cohort for the average art collector.
  • Real estate data for Nashville trends indicate an increase of $12,400 (5%)in median home sales of the past year.
  • Average price per square foot rose from $160 to $177 in the past year.
Downtown Nashville: Broadway (Nashville's hub of live music venues)

LOCATION

Saying nothing else of Nashville’s many charms, early autumn draws thousands to Nashville and its environs to enjoy perfect weather and dramatic fall foliage.  In choosing October 2018 we see an excellent opportunity in the art fair calendar and will attract regulars in the art fair circuit.  Art Nashville will be precisely situated between Expo Chicago, Frieze London and Texas Contemporary.

 

MAJOR INDUSTRIES IN NASHVILLE INCLUDE: HEALTH CARE MANAGEMENT, AUTOMOBILE PRODUCTION, FINANCE, HIGHER EDUCATION, INSURANCE, MUSIC PRODUCTION, PRINTING & PUBLISHING, TECHNOLOGY MANUFACTURING, AND TOURISM.
