    The noise of single hearts battles noise of society in media … whilst the volcano is just there, and so also this farmer. Together they collaps into a fiercely peacefulness that no western journalist or her editor can accept.

    When Pieter Bruegel painted his “Landscape with the Fall of Icarus”, did he leave us with an accusation, metaphorically, represented by that farmer who seems to ignore the scenario he is captured within? (via Citizen 5 )

    Francis Alÿs (wiki)

    Francis Alÿs (born 1959, Antwerp) is a Belgian-born, Mexico-based artist. His work emerges in the interdisciplinary space of art, architecture, and social practice. After leaving behind his formal training as an architect and relocating to Mexico City, he has created a diverse body of artwork and performance art that explores urbanity, spatial justice, and land-based poetics. Employing a broad range of media from painting to performance, his works examine the tension between politics and poetics, individual action and impotence. Alÿs commonly enacts paseos—walks that resist the subjection of common space.[1] Alys reconfigures time to the speed of a stroll, making reference to the figure of the flâneur, originating from the work of Charles Baudelaire and developed by Walter Benjamin.[2] Cyclical repetition and return also inform the character of Alÿs’ movements and mythology—Alÿs contrasts geological and technological time through land-based and social practice that examine individual memory and collective mythology. Alÿs frequently engages rumor as a central theme in his practice, disseminating ephemeral, practice-based works through word-of-mouth and storytelling.

    The Passing of Polymath-Neo-Expressionist Per Kirkeby at 79

  • Painting is the real reality behind the so-called reality of our everyday experience. We only see it in glimpses.
    – Per Kirkeby

  • 1aarKirkebyPer

    Per Kirkeby dies at 79.

    Artforum obit described Kirkeby as a romantic painter.

    “Kirkeby is a romantic painter, but he has ‘described’ the mysticism of the landscape, focusing on the tension between pattern or structure and seemingly structureless fluidity,” Donald Kuspit wrote in the March 2002 issue of Artforum.

    Artnet

    Per Kirkeby is a Danish artist whose interest in geology and natural environments has exerted great influence over his paintings and brick sculptures. Entrenched in the conceptual understanding of a structure, Kirkeby works within parameters to contain the urgency of abstract mark making. “A structure-less painting is, to me, a painting that does not matter. Structure mirrors your degree of responsibility toward the work,” he said of making art. “You can’t just let it float around in pretty colors. It needs a kind of core. But this is an inner structure.” Born on September 1, 1938 in Copenhagen, Denmark, Kirkeby studied geology at the University of Copenhagen, but continued to pursue his art practice, producing paintings, sculpture, films, and prints. During the 1960s, Kireby’s performance art led him to collaborations with Conceptual artists, including Joseph Beuys, Nam June Paik, and Charlotte Moorman. Sadly, in 2013 Kirkeby suffered a serious brain injury in a fall, and has since been unable to paint.

    RIP Everett Fahy – “it’s not the number of people who agree with you, it’s the quality of their judgments”.

    Sad news that the former Met curator and director of the Frick, Everett Fahy, has died. The New York Times has an obituary here, albeit with an unfortunate misprint at the end, describing an early 16th Century Italian painting (which Fahy had concluded was by Michelangelo) as a work by Velasquez.

    The article concludes with a quote art history would do well to remember:

    “With attributions, it’s not the number of people who agree with you, it’s the quality of their judgments.”

    Museum director Everett Fahy Obit NYTimes.

    Everett Fahy, a prominent historian of Florentine painters from the late 15th and early 16th centuries who joined the Metropolitan Museum of Art as a young curator and left to run the Frick Collection before returning to the Met as its chairman of European paintings, died on April 23 in Davis, Calif. He was 77.

    Writing in The New York Times, the critic John Canaday praised the reorganization for creating a “historical continuity” that went “beyond anything the Metropolitan has managed before.”

    The affable Mr. Fahy often rode his bicycle to work, filled his Upper West Side apartment with books and photographs, read voraciously, was close friends with the philanthropist Brooke Astor and freely shared his knowledge with colleagues and other scholars.

    Yves Klein (1928-1962) lived almost as short a life as Mozart and Jesus and Keats, but he lived long enough to make “Yves Klein Blue” his own and to make sure it would still be universally recognized as such more than half a century after his death. – Spencer Alley

  • Compulsion – A Film with Orsen Welles, Bradford Dillman, and Dean Stockwell

    Darrow was the inspiration for the character of Johnathan Wilk in the 1956 novel Compulsion, a thinly fictionalized account of the Leopold and Loeb case. In 1959, the novel was adapted into a film of the same name, starring the legendary filmmaker Orson Welles as Wilk. Welles, whose closing monologue was the longest ever committed to film at that time, shared the Best Actor award with co-stars Bradford Dillman and Dean Stockwell at that year’s Cannes Film Festival.
