SUGGESTING 2013′ S INTERESTING ARTISTS

Posted on January 15, 2013 by Luca Andriani

Like every beginning of a new year, each of us seeks to change, modify or overturn something that the previous year has not fully satisfied or what would be nice to accomplish in the year that has just begun. In this case I told myself : what about reporting young artists to whom we should all keep an eye on for the whole 2013? Rather than offering my subjective opinion on their work, I thought it would be more valuable and educational to focus on their recent career achievements and upcoming projects, the combination of which is a good way in underlining why they are the ones to watch both in 2013 and for many years to come. Maybe one day you’ll have the good fortune to meet them on your way! Happy New Year by the way! Continue Reading →

GUTAI

Posted on January 10, 2013 by admin

In February 2013, the Guggenheim Museum will open the first U.S. museum retrospective exhibition ever devoted to Gutai, the most influential artists collective and artistic movement in postwar Japan and among the most important international avant-garde movements of the 1950s and ‘60s. Gutai was an association of artists founded by Jiro Yoshihara in Japan in 1954. The ’50s and ’60s, the period during which Gutai emerged, were notable for Japan’s miraculous recovery, which was achieved through soaring economic growth in the wake of the country’s defeat in World War II. Gutai’s creations are the result of an abundance of the challenging spirit and creative energy and the function of the group as a symbol of that era. Gutai was extraordinary for its range of bold and innovative creativity and aesthetic which explored in a unique way materials, processes and performativity. The group had a radical way of experimentation across a range of media and styles, and demonstrated how individual artists could push the limits of art. The range will include paintings, conceptual art, experimental performances and films. The Guggenheim show will contain 120 objects by 25 artists on loan from major museum and private collections in Japan, the U.S. and Europe.
