Source Livemint by Radhika Lyengar
Artist and Padma Shri awardee Jivya Soma Mashe, who put Warli art on the global map, died on 15 May, aged 84, at his village, Ganjad, in Maharashtra.

Mashe, who was awarded a Padma Shri award in 2011, had to his credit several national and international exhibitions, including solo and collaborations with artists of various genres. The artist is survived by his wife, three sons, two daughters and grandchildren. His eldest son, Sadashiv, is also a Warli artist. “He was not suffering from any ailment but had become very weak. His appetite, too, had reduced and from the last few months. He had not been able to paint. A week ago, he told me that he wanted to paint a lot but was very sad that he could not. I have lost my father, who was also my guru,” said Sadashiv.

Globally-renowned Warli artist Jivya Shoma Mashe dead

Source Hindustan Times by Ram Parmar
In 1975, the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi told Bhaskar Kulkarni,a senior member of the Crafts Board, Delhi, to find a traditional painter who could depict the tribal way of life, Patil said. Kulkarni came across Mashe’s paintings and presented him before the late PM, who was fascinated with his work, and encouraged him to spread Warli paintings worldwide, Patil said. In 1976, the then President of India Fakruddin Ali Ahmed allotted 3.5 acres of land to Mashe in the then undivided Thane district to propagate Warli art. However, Mashe got the land only after 35 years, in 2011, after the intervention of then Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

Décès de l’artiste Warli Jivya Soma Mashe

Source Connaissance des Arts par Guy Boyer
Jivya Soma Mashe, peintre Warli, est décédé à l’âge de 84 ans. C’est chez lui, à Dahuna taluka (état de Maharashtra à l’ouest de l’Inde), où il vivait depuis l’âge de onze ans, que l’artiste Warli est mort le 14 mai des suites d’une longue maladie. Né à Dhamangaon en 1934, il incarnait cet art traditionnel indien pour lequel il avait reçu en 1976 le National Award for the tribal Art et qui sera poursuivi par ses deux fils et sa fille. Cet art Warli, qui a commencé par des fresques sur les murs, a pris son essor dès les années 1970 en apparaissant sur des toiles et dessins et a peu à peu séduit le monde de l’art international.

Jivya Soma Mashe's grandchildren have just told me that Jivya died at 4 am this morning. This morning when I travel to Switzerland to organize one of my most important exhibitions on Indian tribal art with in particular, several wonderful paintings of this artist, this man, this friend. My sadness is immense. Jivya was a great artist but also an exceptional man respected by all of his community and well beyond. I shared with him my best moments in India. I think a lot about him and all his family.

Les petits fils de Jivya Soma Mashe viennent de m'apprendre que Jivya Soma Mashe est décédé à 4h ce matin. Ce matin où je pars organiser en Suisse une de mes plus importantes expositions sur l'art tribal indien avec notamment, plusieurs toiles merveilleuses de cet artiste, de cet homme, de cet ami. Ma tristesse est immense. Jivya était un grand artiste mais aussi un homme exceptionnel respecté par toute sa communauté et bien au-delà. J'ai partagé avec lui mes meilleurs moments en Inde. Je pense très fort lui et à toute sa famille.

Etre galeriste sans galerie ?

Source Art Insider par Alexandrine Dhainaut
En janvier dernier, on apprenait que Nicole Klagsbrun participera à la prochaine Frieze New York qui se tiendra début mai. Détail non négligeable : la galeriste new yorkaise n’a plus de galerie, de lieu physique accueillant amateurs éclairés et collectionneurs. Une évolution qui peut prêter à réfléchir. Depuis huit ans, le galeriste en appartement Hervé Perdriolle, fait partie de ces cas d’exception. Pour décrire son quotidien, il nous reçoit dans son chez lui parisien, au milieu des œuvres fourmillant aux murs.

An art Historical inquiry into the life and death of Jangarh Singh Shyam

Source Indian Institute of Advanced Study by Partha Mitter
Jangarh Singh Shyam has found in Amit Dutta an ideal chronicler of the tortuous path the tragic Gond artist’s brief life took. Dutta locates Jangarh’s particular predicament within the wider historiographic framework, the uneven relationship between centre and periphery, between the West and the Rest, and between the elite and the underprivileged within global modernism — the concept of the periphery is not one of geography but of exclusion and inclusion. In the global arena, all Indian and other non-western artists suffer from a ‘time lag’, because their work is set against the ‘originary’ discourse of western modernism. Externally, this hegemonic teleology of the western canon has been central to the anxiety of non-western modernism, and Indian modernism in particular. Internally, the rise of ‘modern’ Indian artists with their elevated social status consigned the traditional, popular, folk and tribal artist, the subaltern groups as it were, to the margins of Indian art.

And the Frieze New York stand prizes go to… Nuno Centeno and Jhaveri Contemporary

Source The Art Newspaper by Anna Brady
The Mumbai-based gallery Jhaveri Contemporary and Nuno Centeno from Porto, Portugal, have won the Frieze Stand Prize and Focus Prize respectively for their presentations at Frieze New York. Each gallery receives $7,500. The decisions were made by a jury consisting of Christopher Bedford (director of the Baltimore Museum of Art), Omar Kholeif (senior curator and director of global initiatives at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago) and Suzanne Cotter (director of the Madam Luxembourg Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean). Amrita Jhaveri, the director of Jhaveri Contemporary, says: “We took a complete gamble in showing Samant’s works, as he is little known internationally. We felt his work was contemporary enough for us to take on; we try to find Modern artists who relate to our contemporary programme.”
