Metropolitan Museum: New York’s most remarkable show is dedicated to a complete unknown (except to Rembrandt, Ernst and Pollock)
12.04.2017

New York’s most stunning exhibition right now is dedicated to a complete unknown – or near enough. His name is Hercules Segers (circa 1589-1638), he’s a Dutchman and he was best known for his prints. Don’t be put off by the austerity of the subject matter. Segers is by a narrow margin one of art’s greats.

Damien Hirst: His gigantic resurrection is on display in Venice at the Pinault Foundation
07.04.2017

This is the tale of an artist who for ten years has been very secretly working away on a repertoire of works that will reinvent his creation. This is the tale of Damien Hirst (born 1965), who is attempting a resurrection in Venice by way of a sprawling and imagination-defying exhibition. It’s been an awfully long time since we’ve seen a contemporary art show displaying this degree of megalomania.

Agnes Varda in New York: The shock of the Nouvelle Vague filmmaker’s artworks
28.03.2017

You can’t mistake her. She is coiffed like a contemporary Capuchin monk with her two-tone haircut, white at the roots, burgundy at the tips. She walks slowly but her spirit fizzes like lightning. Agnes Varda is the high priestess of the celebrated French New Wave from the ’60s and is the subject of an excellent exhibition, the first ever in New York, at Blum & Poe.

Art Basel Hong Kong: No, China’s art market isn’t a mirage
23.03.2017

‘Asia’s Precarious Rise’ was the headline the Wall Street Journal ran across its front cover not long ago. In fact, the eyes of the world are turned towards the great Chinese Leviathan to see whether this boom is not in fact a mirage, none more so that the art market. It is a particularly pertinent question at the moment in Hong Kong where Art Basel Hong Kong has just opened.
