I’ve definitely been eating too many chocolates from my advent calendar but because Christmas is in 10 days, I’m beginning to feel the holiday cheer. Enjoy! x
The famed Japanese avant-garde sculptor and painter, Yayoi Kusama is coming back around again to debut new infinity rooms next month in New York.
The show will open on 02 November and take place at three separate David Zwirner locations: downtown, Chelsea and the Upper East Side. There will be two new Infinity Mirror Rooms and of course the artist’s signature polka dots. Expect lots of colourful lights downtown, cool stainless steel orbs in Chelsea and a lovely painting series uptown. Get ready to queue up and enjoy the art and Instagram mania.
Festival of Life and Infinity Nets are on view at David Zwirner, 525 and 533 West 19th Street and 34 East 69th Street, November 2–December 16, 2017.
The international contemporary art fair, Frieze London will take place this weekend in Regent’s Park.
Over 160 of the world’s leading galleries aim to feature contemporary artists. The programme consists of different sections including Frieze Projects, Frieze Artist Award, Frieze Music, Frieze Talks, Focus and Live.
In the Southard Reid, Focus Section, one artist, Joanna Piotrowska from Warsaw, Poland stood to me. Here, Joanna reveals the sequence of movement. From researching and observing the stillness of being, it’s possible to capture credible moments with displayed objects and powerful photographs. Elements of unstable formation often appear in Piotrowska’s work. This was perhaps my favourite of all at the art fair.
Mário Pedrosa was born in Pernambuco, Brasil. Pedrosa is recognised as one of Latin America’s favourable public intellectual critics regarding art, history and philosophy.
Often Mário’s work focused on Brazilian visual culture through the transition era. During the 1940s, it was a critical time for the modes of modernism and social realism. Eventually, this led to new and exciting trends within the world of arts.
This Sunday 24 September, there is a 3pm talk titled: “Mário Pedrosa: On the Affective Nature of Form” at Whitney Museum in New York. The retrospective event will feature the Brazilian’s life and work. Also, there is a great exhibition, On the Affective Nature of Form on display at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid.
