‘Art is more than unbroken lines’

Source The Hindu by Jayanthi Madhukar
Walking around the small room in NGMA and taking in the works stacked against the walls, Chowdhury talks of his plans to open a museum in Kolkata for his private collection. He is confident it will happen soon. Then he pauses near a table. One of the drawings placed on it has a piece of broken glass inside the frame. “While reframing, that piece was not removed.” He laughs at the irony of a broken glass encased within the drawing of unbroken line. It is a sign to change that title. “Maybe you can think of something else?”

Singh Twins bring contemporary art retrospective to Peel Art Museum and Archive

Source The Star Toronto
As a strategy for art-world success, the one employed by the Singh Twins would seem to have some holes. “Narrative, decorative, figurative, non-European, small scale — all the things you’re not supposed to do in contemporary art,” they laugh. “So we just thought, ‘let’s put it all in one package and throw it out there.’ ”And so, a couple of decades ago, they did. But then a strange thing happened: They actually began succeeding. From exhibitions at London’s Tate Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and the Museum of London, to name just a few, the twins — Liverpudlian Brits, Sikh and bona fide art-world celebrities back home in the U.K. — have landed here, at the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archive for their first retrospective in Canada.

The National Crafts Museum in New Delhi, India would soon be demolished

Source Art Found Out by Scott Rothstein
This institution, formally named the National Handicrafts and Handlooms Museum was created in 1958 by Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay, a brilliant social reformer and member of the Indian Independent movement. The mission of the institution was enhanced during the 18 years that Dr. Jyotindra Jain guided the museum. There are over 35,000 works in the museum collection, which is housed in a building designed by Charles Correa. Plans for the future of the collection are unknown. Local bureaucrats have kept much of the rationale behind this decision from the public. The National Crafts Museum represented the very best of Indian culture and stood as a monument to the rich heritage of a remarkable country. Sadly, the administrators responsible for the institution do not understand and respect the importance of it.

Un marché mondial en quête de confiance

Source Le Quotidien de l'Art par Alexandre Crochet
Si la vision globale du marché est « moins positive qu’il y a un an », pointe le rapport, les perspectives pour les ventes d’art contemporain pour six des huit régions examinées restent « neutres à positives » pour les mois à venir. Si les marchés chinois et russes ont chuté de 41 % et 68 %, l’Asie du Sud-Est a progressé de 28 % en 2015, et les ventes d’art moderne et contemporain indien ont connu une hausse de 13,5 %. En dépit de la baisse des cours du pétrole, les experts n’ont pas un avis défavorable mais prudent concernant le Moyen-Orient. Asie du Sud-Est, Inde ou encore Amérique du Sud - Brésil mis provisoirement entre parenthèses – devraient voir émerger encore davantage de grosses fortunes ces prochaines années.

La galerie Hervé Perdriolle célèbre aussi ses 20 ans d’activité. Pour Art Paris Art Fair, Hervé Perdriolle dévoile un stand qui célèbre l’art mural, présentant aussi bien du street art que de l’art outsider ou de l’art rituel. Sont exposées des oeuvres de Jivya Soma Mashe, des photographies du street artiste Seth ou des morceaux de mur tirés de l’appartement de Jean-Daniel Allanche — qui a peint son appartement du plancher au plafond il y a 40 ans. Selon Hervé Perdriolle : « J’ai toujours été intéressé par les oeuvres dont l’intention originelle est de ne pas être exposée en galerie… Elles ont quelque chose de plus ancré à la vie. »
