Fine Chinese Ceramics & Works of Art

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 25 ottobre 2017

fine chinese ceramicsLondon – On 7 November 2017 Christie’s Fine Chinese Ceramics & Works of Art auction will present a carefully-curated sale showcasing works of art spanning three millennia of Chinese art. Highlights include important archaic bronzes from the distinguished German collector Michael Michaels (1907-1986), exquisite imperial ceramics, fine jade carvings, huanghuali furniture, paintings from renowned modern Chinese artists, textiles and Buddhist art. The auction will take place during Asian Art Week in London and will be on view and open to the public from 3 to 6 November. The sale will be led by an extremely rare pair of huanghuali horseshoe-back armchairs, Quanyi, dating to the Ming dynasty (estimate: £800,000 – 1,200,000, illustrated above centre). Displaying the grace and finesse of Ming artistry, this pair are among eight known and published chairs of this design. Of this eight, a set of four, formerly from the Robert H. Ellsworth Collection, were sold at Christie’s New York in 2015 for a record-breaking $9,685,000 / £6,488,950 / €9,103,900. These chairs were constructed by a master craftsman, distinguished by the elegant curve of the crest rail, the sweeping carved hook handles and the beautifully figured huanghuali panels. With distinguished provenance, the pair were previously with noted dealer Grace Wu Bruce. The Fine Chinese Ceramics & Works of Art auction will present further exceptional examples of Ming dynasty furniture including a rare huanghuali recessed-leg painting table (estimate: £200,000-300,000). Large tables are often labelled painting tables, but to be considered a true painting table, such as the present table, the surface must be broad enough to accommodate a large painting and tools associated with painting or calligraphy.

The Art of The Surreal Overview

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 9 febbraio 2017

impressionistLondon – The sixteenth edition of The Art of the Surreal sale will take place at Christie’s on 28 February, following the Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale and will include 35 lots that chart the history of Dada and Surrealism. Together the two auctions launch 20th Century at Christie’s, a series of sales that take place from 28 February to 10 March 2017. Highlights include René Magritte’s La corde sensible (1960, estimate: £14,000,000-18,000,000), one of the largest oils he created, alongside his painting Le domaine d’Arnheim (1938, estimate: £6,500,000-8,500,000). A group of seven works by Max Ernst include Portrait érotique voilé (1933 and circa 1950, estimate: £1,500,000-2,500-000), offered by the artist’s family, and Les deux oiseaux (1925, estimate: £100,000-150,000) from the Personal Collection of Barbara Lambrecht, sold to benefit the Rubens Prize Collection in the Museum of Contemporary Art Siegen (please see seperate release here). The works will be exhibited in London from 23 to 28 February 2017. René Magritte’s La corde sensible, a composition unique in his oeuvre, exemplifies the artist’s lifelong quest to reveal and revel in the mystery that he perceived to exist within the real world. Magritte originally presented it as a gift to his wife, Georgette. Later owned by Ronald Winston, the son of the world-renowned jeweller, Harry Winston, the painting has remained in the same private collection since 1990. Situated under a blue sky, amidst a verdant green landscape with a mountain range in the distance, an enormous crystal glass stands incongruously in the middle of the valley. Hovering just above it is a cloud, the weightless form meeting the solid glass creating a compelling contrast between lightness and weight, transparency and opacity, atmosphere and earth.

Anzi, “Margutta Stazione Urban” sarà Presepe grazie alle meravigliose opere allestite negli spazi espositivi. Un presepe fortemente contemporaneo ed ispirato ai temi scottanti della quotidianità che mettono in moto coscienza e senso etico. Un tema che si anima di sensibilità attente al contemporaneo e nel recupero dei soggetti sacri, rivisitati laicamente, affrontano questioni calde del nostro affannoso oggi su cui convergono pensiero, coscienza e senso etico collettivo.Il progetto espositivo, avviato sin dall’inizio in stretta collaborazione con Emergenza Sorrisi, è un progetto di solidarietà finalizzato alla raccolta di fondi per scopi. Le opere saranno battute all’asta in occasione dell’evento di chiusura previsto per il 12 febbraio 2017: parte del ricavato sarà devoluto all’associazione benefica. Andranno all’asta anche i decori natalizi firmati Moby Dick, che ha rivisitato con il suo inconfondibile stile, tra spray e tag, i più comuni simboli natalizi.

Il presepe “urban” incuriosisce, fa riflettere e provoca. Lo fa attraverso 8 segni ben distinti, emozioni diverse, quali, energia, ribellione, utopia, identità, desiderio e voglia di esprimersi nonostante e, anche, contro tutti”. (foto: presepe margutta)

Both paintings were bought at Christie’s Zurich in the past 10 years and are part of the 6,200 Swiss works of art which have been offered at Christie’s Zurich over the past 25 years.
Over the past decades, a significant development in Swiss artist gallery shows and museum retrospectives has taken place around the globe, including Félix Vallotton at the Grand Palais in Paris, Fischli /Weiss at the Salomon Guggenheim Museum in New York or Ferdinand Hodler at the Neue Galerie, also in New York. This has ignited the interest of international collectors and strong examples of Swiss art can be found from The Pushkin Museum in Moscow to a private collection in Dallas, Texas.

MALÙ: a multimedia art exhibition by Invernomuto

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 8 ottobre 2015

malùToronto Thursday, October 8, 2015 – 6:30pm – 8:30pm Istituto Italiano di Cultura – 496 Huron St., Toronto Free admission. MALÙ is the first personal exhibit of the duo Invernomuto (Simone Bertuzzi, 1983; Simone Trabucchi, 1982) in Toronto. The exhibit wishes to present the recent path the duo is following, which explores Italy’s colonial past, a few exotic stereotypes of last century’s media and a selection of ethno-marketing cases in Italy. The exhibit consists in a central video – MALÙ – The Stereotype of the Black Venus in Italy – which is also the name of the exhibit, a bi-dimensional original work produced for the Italian Cultural Institute of Toronto and it includes a wall-mounted sculpture.
MALÙ – The Stereotype of the Black Venus in Italy is a video-essay screened at the exhibition Nero su Bianco (Black on White) (American Academy in Rome, curated by Lyle Ashton Arris, Peter Benson Miller and Robert Storr). This film examines the construction of the image of the black female body in Italian society, from the colonial age to modern times. The detrimental stereotypes that date back from the XIX century: the European fascination with Saartjie Baartman, the so-called “Hottentot Venus”; the reappearance of photographs of Abyssinian women commissioned by the Istituto Luce; in Italian cinema of the 60s and 70s; in the advertising campaigns of the 80s; more recently, in the media frenzy surrounding Berlusconi and Ruby Rubacuori.
TABÙ is a bi-dimensional work in Plexiglas that includes a series of icons and logos of Italian brands that, consciouslyistituto italiano cultura toronto or not, have created examples of ethno-marketing; coffee, chocolate and desert brands in particular. The work is a cataloguing of representations of black and African diversity: faces, masks deprived of their textual reference or their brand identity. The finish and the material of the object evoke contemporary corporate imagery.
During the 20 years of Fascism there was a cruel and racist nursery rhyme with Mickey Mouse as protagonist, who arrives in Abyssinia to kill “the Moors”, a derogatory term used to indicate Muslims and Berbers of North Africa. Topolino in Abissinia is a sculpture in resin of Mickey Mouse’s hand; the wall-mounted work seems to extend itself towards the audience to ask them an explanation and to shed a bad light on the reputation of the worldwide pop icon.
Simone Bertuzzi (b. 1983) and Simone Trabucchi (b.1982) have been collaborating as Invernomuto since 2003. Although they primarily work in moving image and sound, Invernomuto also integrate sculpture, publishing, and performance in their practice. Recent solo exhibitions include Artspeak, Vancouver (2015), Wondo Genet, AuditoriumArte, Rome (2015), Anabasis Articulata, Triennale di Milano, Milan (2014), Marsèlleria, Milan (2014), Negus – Far Eye, Museion, Bozen (2014), I-Ration, ar/ge kunst, Bozen (2014), The Celestial Path, GAMeC, Bergamo (2013) and Simone, Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea, Ferrara (2011). Group shows and festivals (selection): Nero su Bianco, American Academy in Rome, Rome (2015), La Scrittura degli Echi, MAXXI, Rome (2015), Glitch. Interferenze tra arte e cinema in Italia, PAC Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea, Milan (2014), Black Star Film Festival, Philadelphia (2014), Così Accade, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin (2014), Terre Vulnerabili, Hangar Bicocca, Milan (2011) and Netmage 09, Bologna (2009). In 2013 Invernomuto was a finalist in the 9th Edition of the Furla Art Award and won the first edition of the MERU ART*SCIENCE Award. In 2014 they obtain a funding from MiBAC to conclude Negus, their first full-length film due to be released at the end of 2015; the film has also been selected for Berlinale Talents (Berlin), in 2014. Bertuzzi and Trabucchi also pursue individual practices in the field of music, performing under the names Palm Wine and Dracula Lewis respectively. They live and work in Milan and Vernasca.

ART, Spin Off innovativo del Centro Universitario Odontoiatrico

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 1 agosto 2015

parma universitàART – Apta Regenerative Technologies è la nuova azienda che nasce come spin-off dell’Università di Parma per trasferire i prodotti della ricerca nel mercato delle Red Biotechnologies, le biotecnologie al servizio della salute, diretta dal prof. Guido Macaluso (docente ordinario presso il Centro Universitario di Odontoiatria – Dipartimento di Scienze Biomediche, Biotecnologiche e Traslazionali-S.Bi.Bi.T., da tempo impegnato nel campo della rigenerazione dei tessuti orali) in collaborazione con i dott. Carlo Galli, Simone Lumetti, Edoardo Manfredi (ricercatori del Centro Universitario di Odontoiatria – Dipartimento S.Bi.Bi.T.), e Antonio Cacchioli ricercatore del Dipartimento di Scienze Medico-Veterinarie dell’Ateneo.
ART nasce dall’attività di sperimentazione condotta nel laboratorio (diretto appunto dal prof. Macaluso), di Biomateriali e Ingegneria Tissutale – Bi.T.E. del Centro Universitario di Odontoiatria e vuole dare il suo contributo a migliorare la salute e la qualità di vita dei pazienti sviluppando una nuova classe di biomateriali caratterizzati dall’arricchimento con aptameri. Gli aptameri sono delle brevi sequenze di oligonucleotidi, essenzialmente cioè brevi frammenti di DNA sintetico, che possono essere ingegnerizzati per legare qualsiasi molecola bersaglio. Quando un biomateriale, sia esso una spugna, un gel, un sostituto d’osso o un impianto dentale, viene inserito in una ferita chirurgica, entra a contatto con il sangue e spontaneamente si riveste delle proteine che il sangue contiene. Sono le proteine, di cui esistono tantissimi tipi, che poi dicono alle cellule cosa fare, come attivarsi, come guarire, che tessuti depositare.L’idea alla base di ART è partita da una domanda molto semplice: cosa succederebbe se fosse possibile scegliere tra tutte le proteine del sangue quelle che più servono per indirizzare la guarigione verso la rigenerazione del tessuto che interessa ricostruire e le si riuscisse a trattenere sui biomateriali innestati? Il team di Bi.T.E. ha trovato un metodo studiando il mondo degli aptameri, e adesso ART può generare biomateriali che sono in grado di selezionare il tipo di segnale, di proteina, di cui rivestirsi. Il concetto di ART è estremamente semplice ed elegante: non dare all’organismo impulsi estranei, ma usare ciò che l’organismo ha già, concentrandolo solo là dove serve. Questa tecnologia inoltre è estremamente flessibile, poiché può essere personalizzata, a seconda della situazione clinica. Inoltre qualsiasi biomateriale può essere arricchito con aptameri, non solo quelli per sostituire l’osso, a cui il team di ART è particolarmente sensibile per il proprio background e da cui tutto ha avuto inizio.Il team del Bi.T.E. lab ha lavorato a lungo su questo principio e inizialmente la sperimentazione è avvenuta con un certo riserbo, sfociando in un brevetto italiano, a cui ha fatto seguito una domanda di estensione mondiale. Una volta che il gruppo di ricerca ha avuto la possibilità di presentare i propri risultati al mondo scientifico però la risposta è stata molto buona ed è stato premiato con il prestigioso riconoscimento internazionale “Premio HM Goldman per la ricerca in Parodontologia”, lo scorso marzo. Ora però che si è deciso di intraprendere la via della impresa, con caratteristiche di startup innovativa, a questo nuovo spin-off dell’Ateneo si apre un mondo estremamente dinamico ed emozionante.Lo scorso febbraio il progetto ART è giunto tra i 10 finalisti dell’iniziativa BioInItaly Investment Forum, un’iniziativa promossa col patrocinio di Banca Intesa San Paolo e Assobiotec, vincendo la possibilità di confrontarsi con un prestigioso pubblico di investitori internazionali. L’idea piace e ART è stata premiata con il secondo posto alla competizione Call for ideas “Competitività e Semplificazione”, promossa dai Cavalieri del Lavoro in collaborazione con ItaliaCamp, dopo aver superato una selezione di oltre 200 partecipanti. ART ha superato inoltre le prime due fasi di selezione di Startcup Emilia Romagna e ora, in seconda posizione nella classifica regionale, rimane in attesa del prossimo evento, la Tech Week di Settembre, dove verranno definiti i vincitori.
Se si parla di startup ovviamente si parla di crescita esponenziale, di tecnologie in grado di portare cambiamenti importanti, a fronte di considerevoli rischi, e ART sa che naturalmente bisogna guardare fuori dai confini nazionali. Per questo il team del nuovo spin-off dell’Università di Parma sta costruendo un network di conoscenze e collaborazioni con partner aziendali in diversi paesi e si sta affacciando agli acceleratori, anche stranieri. Un viaggio lungo che è solo agli inizi ma che appare carico di promesse.

Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening sale

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 12 marzo 2015

Rothko BurdaNew York – 13 May 2015- Christie’s is delighted to have been entrusted for the sale of a dazzling master work by Mark Rothko, No. 36 (Black Stripe), 1958, from the collection of the Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden – one of Europe’s most important and prestigious private museums for Classical Modernism and Contemporary art based in Germany. With Rothko’s signature concordance of three shimmering rectangles of directly contrasting color asserting themselves against a luminescent red ground, No. 36 (Black Stripe) is a classic example of Rothko’s mature style of painting and embodies perfectly renowned collector Frieder Burda’s vision and taste for emotional and expressive masterpieces of 20th and 21st Century art. Painted in 1958 when Rothko was engaged with the creation of the series of famous murals for the Four Seasons Restaurant in the Seagram building in Manhattan (now known as the famous The Rothko Room at the Tate Modern in London) – No. 36 (Black Stripe) exemplifies this extraordinary moment in the artist’s life and career. Acquired by Frieder Burda over thirty years ago, No. 36 (Black Stripe) has never appeared at auction and has been featured prominently in every major museum exhibitions devoted to the artist, including the Tate Gallery in London, the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo, The National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sidney and was part of the seminal artist’s retrospective at the Fondation Beyeler, in 2001. Estimated $30-50 million, the work will be on view in Hong Kong and London before being offered at auction in New York on May 13th. Proceeds from the sale will allow Frieda Burda’s non-profit foundation to further strengthen its asset base and thus to ensure the operation of the Museum Frieder Burda, which is exclusively funded by the foundation, for generations to come as well as to expand the work of the museum.Frieder Burda declared, “The decision to part with a work from my collection has been very carefully considered and hasn’t been easy for someone like myself who has a very personal relationship with all works of the collection. No. 36 (Black Stripe) by Mark Rothko is an exceptional work, a solitaire within the collection from which it is hard to separate, however through its unique position within the collection as a whole it lent itself as the best option to implement our long-term plan to part from a work and further refine the collection. It is now strategically the right time and will also allow us to expand our ambitious plans and ideas for the future.”
“Painted in 1958, this vibrant, powerful and deeply emotive painting was created during Mark Rothko’s most influential and acclaimed period. Here the artist has arrived at a new structural language of color that was to define his most famous body of works, The Seagram Murals, painted at the same time and which today constitute the celebrated Rothko Room at the Tate Modern, London. No. 36 (Black Stripe) is the quintessential Rothko – orange, black and red – passion and blood. This is the first time that the painting has been on the market for thirty years and we are sure to see a bidding war at the auction in May for this extremely rare and universally enticing work, especially with such a prestigious provenance and exhibition history,” stated Brett Gorvy, Chairman and International Head of Post-War & Contemporary Art.”We feel honored to be have been entrusted with the sale of Mark Rothko’s No. 36, Black Stripe on behalf of the Frieder Burda Museum. Ever since its opening in 2004 the privately funded museum built by Richard Meier has attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors and stands out as one of the most beautiful and successfully designed museum buildings in Europe.

Masterpieces Of Art Deco: The Marsha Miro Collection

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 26 novembre 2014

MasterpiecesNew York – Christie’s is pleased to present Masterpieces Of Art Deco: The Marsha Miro Collection as part of its 20/21 Design sale, taking place on December 9 in New York. Marsha Miro was first drawn to Art Deco in the early 1980s. She stepped into this field at a fortuitous moment when great pieces were coming to market, very often for the first time from estates or from the heirs of the clients for whom they were originally made. Auctions in New York and in Europe, notably in Monte Carlo, brought forth masterful examples of the creativity of the great designers of this golden era. Miro brought to collecting the informed intelligence and the rigor that has marked her approach to life and underpinned her other roles, as Art Critic for the Detroit Free Press, as Architectural Historian at Cranbrook, the educational community in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, that is a National Historic Landmark, and as Founding Director, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, where she is currently Board President. In building her collection, Miro found exemplary objects and furniture that were capable of holding their own within the context of the 20th century paintings and sculpture that she displayed in her home. The success of her effort can be measured in the exceptional character of the pieces within the collection, examples deserving of the epithet ‘masterpieces’, from artists including Edgar Brandt, Eugene Printz, Ernest Boiceau, Pierre Chareau, Jean Dunand, Pierre Legrain, and Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann.

Japanese Works of Art from Antiquity

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 24 settembre 2014

Japanese Works of Art from AntiquitySouth Kensington – Christie’s is pleased to announce the second annual sale of Asobi: Ingenious Creativity – Japanese Works of Art from Antiquity to Contemporary at South Kensington on 15 October 2014, during Frieze week. From its inception to the present day, there is a joie de vivre that runs through Japanese culture and is apparent throughout the visual arts. Asobi gokoro, or ‘the playful heart’ manifests itself in an endless play with form, from wilful distortion to tongue-in-cheek humour; light-hearted treatment of serious themes to the juxtaposition of unexpected elements. The leitmotif of the sale, Asobi connects prehistoric ceramics, 16th/17th century screens and 20th century avant-garde painting, photobooks and photographs. Comprising over 170 lots of fine Japanese art which highlight the visual appeal, accessibility and relevance of Japanese art to contemporary collecting tastes, this dynamic sale is led by a magnificent panel by Shibata Zeshin (1807 – 1891), which is the only exhibition panel of this scale to come to auction (estimate: £600,000-800,000, illustrated above). Presenting a rich and varied array of opportunities for established and new collectors, with estimates ranging from £800 up to £800,000, the sale is expected to realise in the region of £4 million. A selection of highlights will go on view first at Christie’s King Street on 2 and 3 October, followed by the full pre-sale exhibition at Christie’s South Kensington from 11 to 14 October.

Theatre music art

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 20 maggio 2012

Milano 22, 23 e 24 giugno 2012 San Colombano al Lambro, Theatre music art Dopo il successo della prima edizione, dal 22 al 24 giugno, torna a San Colombano al Lambro THEATRE MUSIC ART, festival di teatro e musica fortemente aperto alla contaminazione e al confronto tra le arti, realizzato a cura dell’Associazione Le Cicale dell’Arconte in collaborazione con la Fondazione Milano – Milano Teatro Scuola Paolo Grassi e Milano Civica Scuola di Musica -, con il sostegno della Regione Lombardia e del Comune di San Colombano al Lambro, e grazie al contributo di Fondazione Cariplo. Tra i protagonisti presenti a questa seconda edizione: l’attore e regista Claudio Morganti, la giovane compagnia teatrale Barone Cheli Ferrari, vincitrice del concorso “Pre-Visioni”a cura del Teatro della Tosse di Genova, e i trampolieri dell’Ensemble Lodi. Inoltre, confermando anche quest’anno l’attenzione alla creatività giovanile e la vocazione a proporsi come vetrina per le nuove realtà artistiche, il festival ospita le performance degli allievi dei corsi di teatro e teatro-danza della scuola Paolo Grassi di Milano e dà spazio a giovani realtà emergenti, invitate a partecipare alla manifestazione attraverso una Open Call diramata in rete. Proseguendo in questa direzione, anche quest’anno alla proposta di spettacoli dal vivo si affianca quella di workshopcon professionisti al fine di favorire l’emergere di nuovi talenti nei molteplici ambiti della produzione artistica e culturale. Dal 9 la 14 giugno, S.P.ARCH. Studio Pratico Architettura e l’architetto Paolo Mestriner, ideatore e fondatore diSTUDIOZERO, conducono un laboratorio di bioarchitettura con la progettazione e la costruzione di microarchitetture temporanee che sapranno valorizzare ancor di più i luoghi del festival e faranno da scenografia naturale agli allestimenti scenici proposti. Nel pieno rispetto dei principi di sostenibilità, intesa come capacità di esaltare le ricchezze del patrimonio storico, paesaggistico e culturale esistente, gli interventi realizzati a partire dai materiali di recupero provenienti dalle realtà locali ospitanti, mirano ad esaltare l’innata eleganza e l’armonia paesaggistica, regalando alle performance artistiche suggestive cornici naturali, con un ulteriore beneficio anche per la sostenibilità economica del Festival, che anche in questo modo risponde alle ormai fisiologiche decurtazioni dei contributi pubblici alla cultura, che lo hanno inevitabilmente interessato.
Il laboratorio teatrale di Claudio Morganti, dal 14 al 17 giugno, e quello del Maestro Michele Monetta (18 – 22 giugno) completano la proposta formativa.Tutti gli spettacoli in programma sono ad ingresso gratuito.
Theatre music art è l’espressione italiana di una tendenza artistico-culturale già ampiamente diffusa nel resto d’Europa e che si propone di favorire il dialogo e il confronto tra ambiti disciplinari differenti mettendo in campo professionisti affermati con giovani emergenti. Il Festival, giunto quest’anno alla sue seconda edizione, si presenta come il naturale prosieguo di un’iniziativa di più ampia portata, “La creatività contaminata: strumento privilegiato delle giovani generazioni”, progetto vincitore del bando Cariplo “Valorizzare la creatività giovanile in campo artistico e culturale”. http://www.videosoundart.com).
