Dis-moi à qui tu appartenais, je te dirai combien tu vaux

Source Le Monde par Roxana Azimi
Une oeuvre ne vaut pas le même prix entre toutes les mains. De fait, un pedigree prestigieux stimule l'appétit des collectionneurs, parfois jusqu'à la folie. " La provenance est rassurante, constate François de Ricqlès, président de Christie's France. Si elle fonctionne, c'est 30 % de valeur ajoutée, avec parfois des éclats extraordinaires. Cela donne une adrénaline et une confiance. "

Source Art Info by Rosalyn D'Mello
On the morning of November 10, the Indian art world steadily slipped into a collective state of mourning. Shireen Gandhy’s father had, as she feared, succumbed to the cancer.

Source Art Daily
For this inaugural French exposition, The Museum of Everything curated an ex Catholic school in St Germain with five hundred artworks by contemporary and historic self-taught, visionary and non-traditional artists and reveals their private drawings, signs and carvings, handmade books, discovered bodies of work and environmental installations. For these artists there are no studios, no press junkets, no art fairs, no magazine spreads. Instead there are treasure troves of untrained work, discovered under rocks, in basements and attics, its creators often unaware their art would ever see the light of day.

The social entrepreneurs dilemma

Source Forbes by Morgan Hartley and Chris Walker
Swapnil was so moved by the family’s story that he quit his job, bought a motorcycle, and went trekking through North India’s jungles with his entire savings — 60 thousand rupees – to go find them. He spent half of his savings, 30,000 rupees, to relocate them to New Delhi, but was soon confronted with the question of how he could sustain them. That’s when we discovered the family of three was part of a rare talent of Madhubani painters.

Sol Lewit, un art conceptuel éphémère

Source Le Monde par Claire Guillot
L'Américain Sol LeWitt, de son vivant, concevait avec soin ses œuvres, simples ou sophistiquées, pleines de courbes ou de droites, confiant l'exécution à d'autres. Il a laissé derrière lui 1200 dessins muraux numérotés et soigneusement documentés. Aujourd'hui, chaque recréation est un défi et une aventure collaborative de longue haleine, qui réunit des artistes mandatés par l'Estate, ainsi que des volontaires venus d'écoles d'art voisines. Ensemble, ils mènent un travail qui tient de l'exégèse et de l'interprétation: il faut suivre les instructions à la lettre, mais aussi adapter le schéma aux lieux et à l'espace.

Kekoo Gandhy: Guru, mentor, patron, critic and more

Source Times of India by Meher Marfatia
Guru, mentor, aficionado, patron, inspiration, critic — Gandhy was diversely designated, defining the country's art scene through World War II, Independence, the Progressive Artists' Group and post-1960s civic struggles. Virtually all the talents of those years owe him their careers, from M F Husain, Tyeb Mehta, Ram Kumar and SH Raza to Bhupen Khakhar, Nalini Malani, Atul Dodiya and Jitish Kallat. Yet the benign, kurta-clad figure behind these prized discoveries modestly shrugged: "It's a matter of good fortune. I just happened to sow seeds and some fell on fertile ground."

The living tradition of Mithila paintings

Source Saffronart by Josheen Oberoi
Mithila paintings, sometimes referred to as Madhubani, originate in the region of Mithila from where they also derive their name (as is often the case in artistic traditions in India). This nomenclature is fitting since it is the geographical origin and medium of the artwork that unites this genre. Beyond that this tradition encompasses a diversity of aesthetic styles and content. As a living tradition, Mithila painting has had a dramatic trajectory over the last fifty years, and its evolution is crucial to understanding its value.

Is Keith Haring Undervalued?

Source Art Info by Rachel Corbett
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Keith Haring? A radiant baby refrigerator magnet? A barking dog tote bag? A few years before he died, in 1990, Haring began translating his cartoonish street idioms into mass-market tchotchkes at the “Pop Shops” he opened in New York and Tokyo. His populist vision made him one of the most iconic artists in American history, but it also meant exile from the “serious” art world for many years.

Who’s an outsider artist?

Source Times of India by Supriya Shama
Their art reflects unconventional ideas, elaborate fantasy worlds and, sometimes, extreme mental states. It is unexpected and uncooked. 'Outsider artists' quietly work outside the purview of mainstream art, with no formal training or degrees and, more importantly, they don't make work for galleries and museums and don't care much for movements going on in the 'art circles'. They are untutored artists, late bloomers, even loners or psychiatric patients at times, who are looking for a creative outlet. In an attempt to acquaint Indian art lovers better with this genre of art, self-taught artist Shubhdarshini Singh has put together an Outsider Art Fair, in Delhi. The term 'outsider art' was first coined by art critic Roger Cardinal in 1972 to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture.
