Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 20 ottobre 2021

London. Christie’s announces an open call to London-based artists to participate in Next at Christie’s: London 2022, a physical and virtual non-commercial exhibition of work by the next generation of artists, which will take place in January 2022. The call for artists is open until 9 November and follows the appointment of two London-based curators, Sasha Shevchenko and Pia Zeitzen, who met while undertaking an MFA Curating at Goldsmiths University. They subsequently formed a curatorial collective, co-developing a practice focused on transcribing theoretical notions into exhibitions as collaborative settings. Additionally Christie’s Education has awarded Sasha and Pia scholarships, alongside two further curatorial candidates, on the Christie’s Education Art Business Masterclass Certificate. Sasha Shevchenko and Pia Zeitzen, Co-curators Next at Christie’s: “As an existing curatorial collective of two international and recently graduated curators, we are excited to have been appointed by Christie’s for this opportunity. Next at Christie’s: London 2022 not only allows us to experiment with our own practice, but enables us to connect individuals, build a community and provide a space of expression for a diverse group of artists. The concept of this upcoming exhibition will address the absurdity of contemporary reality by letting it infiltrate its artistic and curatorial expression. In doing so, it aims to collectively envision alternative modes of meaning-making.” The exhibition presents an exciting opportunity for emerging curators and artists looking to jumpstart their careers in the art world. Applicants must not be represented by a commercial gallery and must either be currently studying or have graduated within the last five years. Christie’s welcomes applicants from all backgrounds, and are looking for candidates who represent ‘new’ talent.

Christie’s to Offer Marina Abramović’s Mixed Reality Work ‘The Life’

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 24 novembre 2019

London – Christie’s will offer Marina Abramović’s seminal performance piece The Life – the world’s first Mixed Reality artwork – as a major highlight of its Frieze Week 2020 auction programme. Coinciding with Abramović’s show at London’s Royal Academy of Arts, which is also the first time a woman has been selected for the main galleries in the institution’s 250+ year history, The Life is expected to be the first work of its kind to be presented at auction and is offered by Tin Drum, inc. in association with Abramović LLC. A ground-breaking fusion of art and technology, The Life was premiered at London’s Serpentine Gallery in February 2019. The 19-minute performance offers an intimate digital encounter with Abramović herself, experienced via wearable spatial computing devices. A hologram of the artist appears, proceeding to pace around a roped off five-metre circle before evaporating into thin air. Unlike Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality allows the other visitors and gallery space to remain visible at the same time, creating a unique interactive experience. Abramović’s pioneering use of this evolving technology reflects her longstanding interest in the limitations of the human body and mind: an enquiry that, since the 1970s, has given rise to one of the world’s greatest performance art practices. An international tour of the artwork will be announced by Christie’s in early 2020.Katharine Arnold, Co-Head, Post-War and Contemporary Art, Christie’s Europe: “We are thrilled to offer The Life by Marina Abramović as a key highlight of the Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Auction during London’s Frieze Week. Abramović has long been considered a ground-breaking artist whose performances push boundaries and this is expected to be the first Mixed Reality artwork to come up for auction. Following an international tour in 2020, visitors to our King Street galleries will have the opportunity to experience, via wearable spatial computing devices, the artist walking in and around them virtually. The presentation will coincide with Abramović’s show at the Royal Academy of Arts.”Marina Abramović was recently interviewed by Christie’s Magazine about The Life where she stated that the theme of the work is immortality: “because you are there, preserved forever,” she says. Director of The Life, Todd Eckert, adds that “A hundred years beyond when anybody who ever knew [Marina] is alive, there will be people that will see her walk into the room and will feel that sense of connection, of human experience”.Eckert is the founder of Tin Drum, inc., the Mixed Reality production team behind The Life. Tim Drum, inc. specialises in using “volumetric photography of real people to create presentations of performance.” For The Life, Abramović was filmed with 32 cameras against a green screen, creating an authentic representation of the human form in motion. This process is currently only possible in a few studios worldwide.Todd Eckert gave a keynote speech to delegates at Christie’s Art + Tech Summit, held in Hong Kong on the morning of 21 November 2019.

3rd Christie’s Middle Eastern Art Sale in London

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 1 settembre 2019

Dubai / London – Christie’s third ‘Middle Eastern Modern & Contemporary Art’ auction to be held outside of Dubai will take place on 23 October and is included as part of the rich and traditional Islamic Art Week in London. Around ninety works of Middle Eastern art have been consigned from around the globe, including Los Angeles, New York, London, Dubai, Paris, Beirut, Buenos Aires, Milan, Perth and Casablanca, among others. The auction is mainly focused on modern Arab and Iranian works, with an emphasis on contemporary practice. Strong modern artists from the region include Louay Kayyali and Fateh Moudarres (Syrian), Manoucher Yektai (Iranian), Ismail Shammout (Palestinian), as well as strong selection of modern female artists, including Bibi Zogbé (Lebanense), Chaïbia Talal (Moroccan), Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (Iranian), Zeinab Abd El Hamid (Egyptian) and Tahia Halim (Egyptian). Contemporary artists include Farhad Moshiri, Ali Banisadr, Reza Derakshani and Hadieh Shafie (Iranian) and Marwan Sahmarani (Lebanese).“A diversity of mediums, subject matter, geographies, and sale estimates characterise Christie’s third Middle East art sale in London, providing a global platform for art and artists from this ever-evolving region,” said Hala Khayat, Christie’s Director and Head of Sale in the Middle East. “From masterworks by some of Iran, Egypt, and Syria’s most celebrated artists to contemporary pieces from emerging talents, there is something compelling for every collector.”A work by the late Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (1924-2019 – illustrated above), one of Iran’s most celebrated artists who passed away earlier this year, will highlight the auction. Executed in 2008, Untitled (Faravahar Wings, Zarathustra) is a beautiful and rare masterpiece inspired by the wings of Faravahar, one of the most common symbols of the ancient religion of Zoroastrianism. Kaleidoscopic in its magnificent form, the work depicts a series of triangular mirrors that reflects light in every direction, touching upon the concept of the fravashi, which is part of the human soul acting as a divine blessing and entirely good. Standing in front of the work, the viewer can admire the abstracted and simplified version of the Faravahar, as Farmanfarmaian has broken it down to its foundational essence (estimate: £240,000-400,000). The inclusion of Farmanfarmaian’s piece in the auction coincides with major exhibitions of her work this year at the Sharjah Art Foundation and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. In 2017 a dedicated museum to the artist opened in Tehran.

Secondo una classifica di uSwitch Better Family Life Index, che ha esaminato la qualità della vita in 138 contee britanniche, l’Hertfordshire è il posto migliore in Gran Bretagna per vivere. Sia l’Hertfordshire che il West Essex sono famosi per le pittoresche cittadine e le riserve naturali che sono diventate uno dei panorami preferiti dei cineasti.
“Scuole straordinarie, una location a 20 minuti di treno da Londra, con 50 chilometri di spiagge, l’Università di Cambridge e l’aeroporto di Luton a due passi rendono facile bilanciare carriera e famiglia”, ha detto Martin Ratz, direttore e co-fondatore di Paragona. “I medici del nostro programma saranno contenti del fatto che la loro settimana lavorativa – inizialmente di 17 ore e poi in aumento fino a 37,5 ore – lascerà loro molto tempo per godersi l’ambiente circostante.”
Le domande devono essere presentate entro e non oltre il 22 giugno. Salari annuali da 70,000 a 200,000 GBP. “Ciò che contraddistingue l’offerta di Paragona è che i partecipanti ricevono lo stipendio pieno durante il periodo di formazione e fino a 8.000 sterline per i costi di trasferimento”, ha aggiunto la signora Łozińska. “Inizialmente, i medici di famiglia, che passano circa 17 ore alla settimana nella loro clinica, guadagnano circa 70.000 sterline all’anno. Dopo questo periodo di adattamento, il carico di lavoro aumenta a 37,5 ore settimanali e lo stipendio annuale sale a 80.000 sterline. Dopo due o tre anni, un medico di solito arriva a guadagnare 90.000 sterline all’anno.” Molti degli ospedali e delle cliniche britanniche che lavorano con Paragona sono alla ricerca di medici per incarichi permanenti o per collaborazioni aziendali ed anche per posizioni dirigenziali. In quest’ultimo caso, i salari annuali possono arrivare a 200.000 sterline.
