Art Paris Art Fair: une caverne d’Ali Baba des artistes contemporains

Source L'Express Votre Argent
Chez Magnin-A, galerie spécialiste des artistes africains, on appréciera les masques de Romuald Hazoumè, un rappel des arts ancestraux de l’Afrique réalisés avec des matériaux de récupération, bidons et tissus retrouvant ainsi une nouvelle fonction. Chez Hervé Perdriolle, on craque sur les œuvres d’artistes indiens comme Chano Devi et Jivya Soma Mashe qui utilisent la bouse de vache sur leurs toiles, le résultat ressemblant de façon volontairement naïve aux miniatures indiennes les plus raffinées.

Foreign art foray

Source Times of India by Supriya Sharma
His creative footprints can be traced from the UK's Tate Modern, the Louvre in Paris, the Albertina Museum in Vienna and the La Scala in Milan! Now, iconic South African artist William Kentridge is in Mumbai to showcase his versatile art, at the Volte gallery. Volte isn't the only gallery garnering foreign attention of late. The past year has seen a tsunami of art shows by foreign artists in India. And it is not just artists, even foreign art collectors are showing a keen interest in the Indian art market.

Indian Modernism and an Out-of-the-Blue Bowl Kickstart Asia Week Auctions

Source Art Info
Asia Week kicked off on Tuesday with a bang. As has been the trend in the last few years, there were plenty of lots selling for 10 times estimates. As always, Chinese ceramics are hot, as are traditional Indian and Himalayan works of art. Perhaps more surprisingly, modern and contemporary Indian art seems to be bouncing back from the low point it has been occupying for the past few seasons. At Sotheby’s, the evening sale of former Christie’s specialist and collector Amrita Jhaveri’s single-owner “Amaya Collection” sale bucked the underperforming Indian market, with 40 lots selling for $6,694,876. The well-curated sale was 93 percent sold by lot and 90 percent sold by value. This success affirmed both the importance of Jhaveri’s collection and her decision to choose works to sell based on the artist’s proven record at auction.

Les bons résultats de la vente de la collection Jhaveri à New York redonnent des couleurs au marché de l'art indien

Collectionneuse de la première heure, Amrita Jahveri s'est séparée d'une partie de sa collection pour acquérir de nouvelles œuvres. Cette première vente du soir consacrée à l’art contemporain indien chez Sotheby’s New York a inaugurée la semaine d'Art Asiatique avec de très bons résultats. Le lot le plus disputé a été Untitled (1962) de Vasudeo S. Gaitonde, l’un des artistes abstraits les plus recherchés aujourd’hui en Inde. Il a été adjugé $965,000 (€747,000). A noter également les bonnes performances de Manijit Bawa ($389,000), Jogën Chowdhury ($118,750), Bhupen Khakhar ($341,000) et Ravinder Reddy ($341,000).

New York Indian art sale breaks artist records

Source Times of India by Neelam Raaj
The sale that was billed as the hottest of the season and featured the who's who of Indian art netted $6.7 million and broke four artist records in New York on Wednesday. On the block was the collection of Amrita Jhaveri, a reputed gallerist and art advisor who divides her time between London and Mumbai. Jhaveri, the daughter of a wealthy Malabar Hill Gujarati family, started collecting in the 1990s. The collection, titled "Amaya" (which means "without illusion"), has grown substantially over the years. Jhaveri said she decided to part with some of her prized pieces to buy new works.

Heart in art?

Source The Hindu by Lakshmi Kupra
What is it that drives people to collect, particularly if they aren’t rich — such as the Vogels? “You can never say why someone collects. It might have started slowly or with one piece that they may have reacted to, but they continue going back to it because art changes your life forever, for the better,” he said and recounted his own experience of picking up a piece that suddenly became available when he wasn’t so financially sound, having just quit his job. “I saw it and I had to buy it. I wake up in the morning and I look at it hanging on my wall; something I have wanted ever since I was a kid, it charges me up. It makes me want to go out there and do something. That’s what art does to you,” he concluded.

"I Felt the Need to Do Something Unusual": Massimiliano Gioni on Curating Venice

Source Art Info
I’ve been including artists that are defined as “outsider” or “self-taught” in my shows for a while. It was the idea already for the Gwangju Biennial in 2010 and I’ve been looking at that field quite regularly in my group shows at the New Museum. Auriti’s piece is in the collection of the American Folk Art Museum (New York), so I had heard about it. I saw it in person not that long ago, like 2011. As the ideas for the Venice exhibition were developing, I thought that somehow it was the ideal starting point.

Artists Announced for Massimiliano Gioni’s Venice Biennale Exhibition

Source Art Info
“Blurring the line between professional artists and amateurs, outsiders and insiders, the exhibition takes an anthropological approach to the study of images, focusing in particular on the realms of the imaginary and the functions of the imagination. What room is left for internal images—for dreams, hallucinations and visions—in an era besieged by external ones? And what is the point of creating an image of the world when the world itself has become increasingly like an image?”

New York Asian art auctions span bronze antiquities to contemporary art

Source Reuters
The four days of auctions, estimated to take in anywhere from $74 million to $106 million, begin on Tuesday with Sotheby's sales of contemporary Indian art and Chinese ceramics and art, and Christie's Indian and Southeast Asian sale, which includes some of its higher-priced works. The semi-annual sales of Asian works of art have become an important driver in the global market, with strong activity in recent years. But a recent report found art spending by Chinese collectors fell 24 percent last year because of slowing economic growth and a lack of availability of top-quality works.

We want a global market for modern Indian art: Mark Poltimore

Source Business Standard
India is an important market for Sotheby's. Our Indian client base continues to grow steadily. In 2012, Sotheby's saw a 20 per cent rise in the number of Indian buyers participating in our auctions and a 42 per cent rise in the amount they spent with the company. Indian buyers are now active right across our selling categories - not just Indian art, but also increasingly in our impressionist and modern, international contemporary and jewelry sales. We are keeping a close watch on the market in India. Our main goals are to develop the international market for modern and contemporary Indian art and to bring a higher level of client service to our buyers and collectors based in India and those of the Indian diaspora around the world.

Jatha in Warli Tribal Revolt Region

Source Communist Party of India
The Western Sangharsh Sandesh Jatha journeyed into the historic Warli tribal revolt region in Thane district on its second day on Saturday, March 09. Impressive meetings were held in Dahanu, Jawahar and Talassery towns, which were the epicentre of the tribal revolt in 1945. It may be recalled that the Warli tribals led by the Communist Party and its legendary leaders Godavari Parulekar and Shamrao Parulekar revolted against the big landlords, sahukars and the British in 1945. The landlords who were holding thousands of acres of land each as absentee landlords had to flee the area due to this rebellion and the lands were re-occupied by the tribals.

Sting Rocks Indian Art Auction

Source Art Info
Sting Will Open Landmark Indian Auction: A rare sale of antiquities and artworks — including an orientalist masterpiece by J.M.W. Turner, a painting by M.F. Husain, and design objects by Étienne Drian, René Lalique, and others — staged by Bangalore-based auctioneer Bid & Hammer will feature an even more improbable opening act. The three-day sale kicks off on Thursday with a performance by rock legend Sting. "Auctions in India are moving away from gallery spaces to luxury venues to fit into the lifestyle segments of the upend buyers who make up the bulk of the collectors of rare art and antiquities in the country," Bid & Hammer chairman and managing director Maher Dadha explained.

Art in their abode

Source Business Standard by Kishore Singh
Some homes keep their secrets well. In Mumbai, Mukesh Ambani's Antilla, which has hosted its big-ticket parties, has floored visitors to such an extent that few recall seeing any art there. On prodding, they might recall "a kind of bird" - possibly a massive Garuda by artist Satish Gupta - at the entrance, part of a series of artworks commissioned especially for the skyscraper, though it is the junior Ambanis who take art collecting more seriously, with both office and their residence brimming with masters and contemporaries from F N Souza to Chintan Upadhyay, Jogen Chowdhury to Sujata Kejriwal. Unsurprisingly, really, with Tina Ambani supporting the Harmony show, and spouse Anil Ambani providing discreet inputs. In New Delhi, it is Sunil Mittal's home that has remained unreported for its art collection, with the Mittals apparently inclined to support emerging artists over established masters.

Artistes contemporains indiens de moins de 40 ans

Source Art Price Art Market Insight
Loin de la puissance de frappe des maisons de ventes occidentales et chinoises, l'art contemporain indien fait face à une demande locale toujours plus importante et possède une forte représentation internationale. Le classement révèle ainsi, sans surprise, une géographie des ventes d'art contemporain indien qui s'articule entre Londres, New York et Hong Kong. Si cinq artistes se partagent le Top, deux d'entre eux sortent du lot et occupent sept des premières marches. Avec un ticket d'entrée à 11 000 $ et une première marche à 85 000 $ pour les artistes de moins de 40 ans, le marché de l'art contemporain indien n'occupe plus les mêmes sphères qu'entre 2006 et 2008, mais semble avoir trouvé son équilibre... Parallèlement à ces statistiques d'Art Price on peut saluer l'entrée des artistes contemporains tribaux sur le marché de l'art international. Une peinture sur papier de Jangarh Singh Shyam (artiste présent aux Magiciens de la terre) obtenait 31250 $ chez Sotheby's NY en 2010, introduction confirmée par les ventes récentes concernant cet artiste chez Saffronart (maison de vente indienne) en 2012 et 2013. Une oeuvre de Jivya Soma Mashe (exposé en 2012 à la Fondation Cartier) a obtenue 21000 $ chez Artcurial en 2007. Des résultats qui mettraient ces artistes en 5ème et 7ème positions de ce dernier palmarès mis en ligne par Art Price.
