The Orange County Museum of Art – which aims to open its $ 93 million building designed by Thom Mayne on October 8 at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa – announced two key hires earlier this week: the chief curator Courtenay Finn and Meagan Burger’s Director of Learning and Engagement.

On Wednesday, the museum launched an ambitious acquisition initiative. “60 for 60” has set itself the goal of acquiring 60 new works of art to celebrate the museum’s 60th anniversary and mark the opening of the new building.

The initiative sums up director Heidi Zuckerman’s vision for OCMA, which is to “look back to look to the future,” she told The Times.

“You really only have this opportunity to build a new museum once in the history of an institution, probably,” Zuckerman said. “This is an opportunity to fill in the gaps of the past.

At the same time, she adds, the new acquisitions will include artists already represented in the museum’s collection or those who exhibited at the museum in the past but were not collected at the time. Also included will be artists represented in the next exhibitions.

The collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art consists of more than 4,500 works by artists from California and the Pacific Rim. This highlights important movements with SoCal roots, such as Light and space, Pop art, minimalism, Californian conceptualism and early and mid-century modernism. While the museum has significant holdings from some artists, such as John Baldessari, Charles Ray and Ed Ruscha, a recent analysis of the collection showed glaring holes, Zuckerman says.

“The percentage of works by male artists compared to female artists – probably by agreement with most museums – is around 75-25,” Zuckerman said. “So a big part of my initiative is to collect works by female artists. And, of course, artists of color.

Zuckerman says the museum has benefited from several substantial donations over the years of work by artists of color. “But it’s a great opportunity for us to take advantage of that,” she adds.

New OCMA building, under construction for more than a decade, will almost double exhibition space to 25,000 square feet – hence the acquisition campaign.

On Zuckerman’s wishlist? A surfer by Catherine Opie. And some of what she calls “Northern California’s lesser known but really interesting female artists,” such as Joan Brown and Jay DeFeo. “We have works from them in the collection, but I would like to have more,” she says.

Zuckerman, a This avid Californian hiker said the outdoors was a big part of her vision for the museum. The design of the new building is particularly indoor-outdoor, with multiple skylights, retractable walls, more than 10,000 square feet of green space and an outdoor space that can accommodate up to 1,000 people. And Zuckerman intends to exhibit works of art, including paintings, outdoors.

“And we’re working on a large site-specific order that will be revealed on the Sculpture Terrace in the Upper Square when we open,” she says.

Meanwhile, construction on the new building is nearing completion and the construction campaign now stands at $ 67 million.

When it opens, general admission to the OCMA will be free for the first 10 years, guaranteed by a donation of $ 2.5 million from Lugano Diamonds, based in Newport Beach.

The inauguration The special exhibit will be a resurrection of the museum’s California Biennial, which began in 1984. “California Biennial 2022,” co-curated by Elizabeth Armstrong, Essence Harden and Gilbert Vicario, will include painting, sculpture and photography, as well as music, design, fashion and interactive installations.

Zuckerman will organize a reinstallation of the permanent collection, “13 Women”, a nod to the founding women of the museum. OCMA’s Cassandra Coblentz will curate “Fred Eversley: Reflecting Back (the World)”, the artist’s first retrospective at the West Coast Museum since 1978.

Both Finn and Burger worked with Zuckerman at the Aspen Art Museum before moving on to other institutions. Finn arrives at OCMA from the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland, where she served as chief curator. It starts in March. Burger, who joined OCMA in October, was from the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, where she was responsible for adult learning.

“It’s really exciting,” said Zuckerman, who took office in February 2021, “to be able to lead this transformation of an institution at a time when there is so much uncertainty in the world – it really is. great to be able to deliver something as promised.

As it prepares to welcome the public to a new building later this year, the Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA) today announced two new nominations.

Courtenay Finn joins the Southern California Museum as Chief Curator in March. She is currently chief curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland.

Meagan Burger is Director of Learning and Engagement at OCMA. After four years at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, where she was responsible for adult learning, Burger is spearheading the development and integration of learning, public programs and community partnerships at the OCMA.

“Courtenay and Meagan are wonderful additions to OCMA’s leadership whose work and impact will reflect our vision for a vibrant, engaged and diverse museum for the 21st century,” said OCMA CEO and Director Heidi Zuckerman, in a statement.

“Both of these women worked at the Aspen Art Museum during my tenure, and I have watched their careers grow with great admiration.

She was hired at MCA Chicago to serve as Manager of Interpretation and was elevated to Manager of Adult Learning (2017-21). Previously, Burger was responsible for visitor services at the Aspen Art Museum in Aspen, Colorado, under the direction of Zuckerman.

Burger received a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and English Literature from Northwestern University. She also obtained a Certificate in Learning and Visitor Services in Museum Studies from the University of Leicester in the UK.

OCMA’s new $ 93 million, 53,000 square foot facility is under construction in Costa Mesa, California. Part of the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, the future museum has 25,000 square feet of exhibition space and is designed by Morphosis Architects under the direction of Pritzker-Prize winner Thom Mayne and responsible partner Brandon Welling.

The new building is the last chapter in the history of the museum. Founded by 13 visionary women in 1962, the institution was first known as the Balboa Pavilion Gallery. Several years later, in 1968, the modest art gallery was reinvented as the Newport Harbor Art Museum. In 1997, it was inaugurated as the Orange County Museum of Art, then located in Newport Beach.

The museum’s staff and operations are currently based at a temporary site in Santa Ana, called OCMAExpand. Burger officially debuted at OCMA in October 2021, a year before the new building opened this fall on October 8, 2022.

His work is well advanced. In a statement, Burger said, “OCMA respects each individual as a learner and teacher. ” CT

Fancy a road trip to celebrate the end of a very trying year?

Hop on your bike, charge the electric vehicle, shift gears on gas to visit one of Australia’s regional art galleries. And don’t forget to check the entry rules secured against Covid in advance.

Geelong Gallery: Archie 100: a century of the Archibald Prize

Until February 20, 2022

The best paintings available in 100 years of the Archibald Prize have been brought together in an exhibition, called the Archie 100, and it’s a treat.

Most of the time, the Archibald’s annual portrait exhibition features a handful of notable works and plenty of medium to medium (and that’s nice) works, but for Archie 100 the selection process has chipped away a chunk of rock for reveal a Michelangelo’s David inside.

Okay, I’m exaggerating, but there’s no doubt that from the original 6,000 portraits curator Natalie Wilson gave us a superb selection, capturing not only the similarities, but most importantly the essence of the models.

Many of them aren’t winners (because judges are often wrong) but iconic images abound, including William Dargie’s Albert Namatjira, Natasha Bieniek’s Wendy Whiteley, John Brack’s Barry Humphries as Dame Edna and a self-portrait with Chuck Berry, among others. people, by Vincent Namatjira, great-grandson of Albert.

The Portrait of Albert Namatjira by William Dargie, 1956, is presented at the Geelong Gallery as part of the traveling exhibition of the Art Gallery of NSW Archie 100, A Century of the Archibald Prize. Photograph: Estate of William Dargie

If you’ve watched Finding the Archibald, hosted by Rachel Griffiths on ABC TV last year, you’ll know it all, but nothing beats seeing the real thing. There are also associated special events on offer, including night viewings on some Friday evenings and a curators’ conference. Archie 100 is a traveling exhibition of the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Geelong Gallery is its only Victorian venue.

Ballarat International Photography Biennale

Last call for road tripers and locals, currently until mid-January, (exact date varies by location).

This central Victorian-era town is like a living open-air museum: experience real-time one of the world’s most impressive colonial architecture, gradual decline and a resurrection of the last days.

It’s all there in the fascinating streetscapes – a lot of which you can experience as you move between dozens of venues with exhibitions as part of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale, now extended until January.

The main one is the Ballarat Art Gallery, a compelling reminder of the claims of the attempts of the notables of the Golden Age to transplant the European academy to the antipodes.

Firmly in charge, curators and the wealthy, who would have thought that the very edifice they built in their image would one day host three photo exhibitions, each featuring a view from below and from outside that was once unthinkable.

The working class and the provincial Beatles, so central to the changing of the guard that made the British Empire instantly go out of fashion in the 1960s, are at the center of Linda McCartney: Retrospective. Two hundred photographs taken between 1965 and 1997 document the height of pop culture and beyond.

Iconic faces and intimate family photos feature in a selection curated by former Beatle Paul McCartney and his daughters, Linda, Mary and Stella. Hurry, because it ends on January 9th.

The Beatles, Abbey Road, London, 1969

Also on display is the view from the pink parts of the globe that powers both Robert Fielding’s Miil-Miilpa (Sacred) and Anindita Banerjee’s Ondormohol.

Fielding, an Aboriginal artist of Afghan descent, has built an impressive body of work exploring, or rather celebrating, the energizing presence of Tjukurpa (the Dream) in the lives of his Yankunytjatjara elders and the landscape around his community of Mimili, deep in the APY lands of the far north of South Australia.

The elders are depicted in close-up black-and-white elegiac photos that capture deep-grained, vigorous faces with the inner light of traditional traditions. The landscapes are captured in an experimental process that incorporates the sun and the earth as elements of the image, crushed by statements of ownership and belonging.

Banerjee, from Kolkata, Bengal, India, was struck by the familiarly evocative Victorian-style architecture of the public spaces in her adopted town, Ballarat.

The personal connection to Bengal and Ballarat, two outposts of the empire, one collapsing, the other restored to its magnificence, raises questions about how we see ‘here’ and ‘ over there ”and our relationship to time and the world around us.

The three exhibitions offer a nuanced and lively counterpoint to the imperial narrative embodied in the imperial architecture – frankly, often oppressive – of the city, within which their photographs operate their transgressive magic.

Alice springs

Desert Mob 30: celebration of 30 years of Desert Mob exhibitions. Reopening from January 11 to June 1, 2022.

Since 1991, the annual Desert Mob Exhibition at the Government of the Northern Territory’s Araluen Arts Center in Alice Springs has been a showcase for community art centers in central Australia.

These tiny communities located in some of Australia’s most remote places have been the driving force behind the flourishing of desert Aboriginal art into one of the most dynamic contemporary art movements in the world.

Invention, risk-taking, sheer beauty, and an assertive self-confidence that is rarely found elsewhere – as the world (finally) acknowledges. And every year, the Araluen Arts Center acquires the best of them for its own collection of desert art. All the big names are included of course, but one of the biggest thrills of Desert Mob is discovering unknown artists displaying “a fully formed artistic expression based on deep cultural knowledge and sovereignty,” as Araluen Arts puts it. Center.

Until June 1, 2022, you can see the best of the best, a retrospective selection of 50 works from the Araluen’s Desert Mob collection. In my humble opinion, there is no more thrilling and exciting collection of recent desert art in the world – and it encompasses all forms of art, from sculpture, printmaking, and sculpture to painting, textiles and fibers.

Often raw and honest, he can be avant-garde adventurous and a lot of fun too.

If you’re looking to take art home with you during your stay at Alice, don’t miss selections from Raft artspace and Talapi – two long-established galleries that deal directly with community art centers owned and operated by of native people, so that you can be sure of the ethical provenance when purchasing.

Or come back to September 2022 and take a deep breath of the intoxicating scent of spring gum blossoms in the pure desert air as you make your way to the next annual Desert Mob exhibit. This is your chance to buy from dozens of stalls in the art center and also in the main exhibition.

How Joan and Jack Quinn Built a Large Collection of Friendship-Based Art https://danhardingart.com/how-joan-and-jack-quinn-built-a-large-collection-of-friendship-based-art/ Mon, 27 Dec 2021 20:48:10 +0000 https://danhardingart.com/how-joan-and-jack-quinn-built-a-large-collection-of-friendship-based-art/ BAKERSFIELD, CA – As artist Joe Fay remembers, soon after meeting Joan Quinn, she made a very simple request that would prove to be of great help for her future: “You should do my portrait. ” He followed her advice and in no time Fay created colorful semi-abstract portraits of Joan and her husband, Jack.

BAKERSFIELD, CA – As artist Joe Fay remembers, soon after meeting Joan Quinn, she made a very simple request that would prove to be of great help for her future: “You should do my portrait. ” He followed her advice and in no time Fay created colorful semi-abstract portraits of Joan and her husband, Jack. Two years later, portraits of their daughters, Amanda and Jennifer, followed. “Joan was kind and supportive,” Fay recalls. “She had the portraits published in Los Angeles Magazine and more commissions came in at $ 1,200 each. “

The vibrant portraits of Joan and her family de Fay are among the highlights of On the Edge: Los Angeles Art 1970s – 1990s from the Joan and Jack Quinn Family Collection, exhibited at the Bakersfield Museum of Art. The exhibition includes a number of varied and original portraits, by different artists, of a woman motivated by curiosity and a desire to encourage creativity as opposed to a need to nurture personal vanity. For example, George Herms depicted Joan as a sphere of rusted metal on a scorched wooden pedestal. Allen Ruppersberg depicts her as a cut-out figure adorned with books and texts. And Jean-Michel Basquiat sketched his wrists and his fingers laden with jewelry alongside two stylized monkeys. Basquiat’s “fees” for the portrait were a handful of seals the legendary actor and drag queen Divine had left in a drawer in the Quinn house.

A native of Los Angeles and the daughter of wealthy parents – motorsport promoter JC Agajanian and his wife, Hazel Faye – Joan had her first portrait taken at the age of 16 and met up-and-coming artists from high school. As the Los Angeles art scene grew in the late 1950s and early 1960s, it was already serving as a social connector for the emerging “Cool School” that aspired to challenge New York’s dominance. Working as Andy Warhol’s West Coast Editor Interview magazine and, later, as editor-in-chief of Conde Nast Traveler, Joan crossed the coastlines and did all she could to put her artist friends in the media spotlight. She also made sure that the snobbery many artists faced on the East Coast had an antidote on the West Coast: genuine camaraderie and friendship.

The Quinns House in Beverly Hills, still home to a treasure trove of works by LA artists, has been the site of countless poolside parties where artists, Hollywood guys and social actors have met and had established networks. Jack Quinn often provided legal assistance to performers who needed help paying parking tickets, reading contracts or raising money from a dealer, or who had been arrested for possession of weed.

“I took the whole family on the hot days for a swim and lunch,” Joe Fay recalls. “The Quinns treated us like theirs and you could talk to Joan or Jack about anything.” They were real friends in a way that went beyond art. For years, Jack was often my tennis partner and we played against artists (Chuck Arnoldi), celebrities (Ricky Nelson and Regis Philbin), as well as Federal Judge Matt Byrne.

Over time, Joan has inspired more than 300 portraits, but as the works on display at the Bakersfield Museum show, they are only one part of a sprawling collection. The works of Ed Moses, Lynda Benglis, Peter Alexander, Frank Gehry, Robert Graham and Ed Ruscha are some of the centerpieces of the exhibition, curated by Rachel McCullah Wainwright, who “took a new look”, as Joan commented. The result sheds new light on the emergence of art in Los Angeles and will be a boon to art historians for years to come. Then again, seeing On the edge purely in terms of art history, what the Quinn family and their guests have enjoyed for years is that their collection is truly about friendship and encouragement.

On the Edge: Los Angeles Art 1970s – 1990s from the Joan and Jack Quinn Family Collection continues at the Bakersfield Museum of Art (1930 R Street, Bakersfield, CA) until April 2, 2022. The exhibition was curated by Rachel McCullah Wainwright.

The Corcoran School of Arts and Design is seeking applications for full-time professors in art history, design, interior architecture and theater, as well as exhibition staff.


The objects and artists of Gilded Figures are so well chosen and so carefully interpreted that each section defies divisions and rejects easy tropes.


Beneath the explicit sex and violence of Dutch provocateur Paul Verhoeven’s latest film lie thoughtful challenges to gender roles and institutional religion.

Fan Art imagines Daniel Radcliffe as an obscure spot of the villainous Spider-Man https://danhardingart.com/fan-art-imagines-daniel-radcliffe-as-an-obscure-spot-of-the-villainous-spider-man/ Fri, 24 Dec 2021 18:30:00 +0000 https://danhardingart.com/fan-art-imagines-daniel-radcliffe-as-an-obscure-spot-of-the-villainous-spider-man/ Daniel Radcliffe is often known to have portrayed heroic roles like Harry Potter in the Wizards franchise, or his other roles in television, film, and on stage.

Daniel Radcliffe is often known to have portrayed heroic roles like Harry Potter in the Wizards franchise, or his other roles in television, film, and on stage. One Marvel fan has decided that despite his heroic resume, Radcliffe might succeed in playing a Spider Man villain in the MCU.

Radcliffe has had an illustrious career since he rose to fame after his performances throughout the Harry potter franchise. With the cast of a fan, maybe it’s time for Radcliffe to join the expanding Marvel Universe in the Spider-Man movies.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

RELATED: Chloe Zhao Shows Eternals Photo From First Drug Test In Parking Lot

The art created by a m.design34 puts Radcliffe in the role of Spot, who possesses powers that none of the live-action versions of Spider-Man have ever had to face. In the image created, some of Spot’s awesome powers can be seen, including the use of his space warps. These distortions allow Spot to move parts of his body or himself entirely into space, surprising his opponents with attacks they can never see coming. In the upper left corner, Radcliffe’s fist can be seen appearing through one of these chains.


In the photo, Radcliffe is wearing a costume that differs from the comic book and animated versions of the villain. The typical black and white Dalmatian costume has been replaced by black and gray armor. To help bring this comedic villain to life, the artist took inspiration from some of the MCU’s pre-existing characters, including Doctor Strange and Electro. Across Radcliffe’s chest is what appears to be an energy source that Radcliffe’s version of Spot draws in order to use his powers in the deadliest way possible. The power source and the vest it’s attached to are built much like the new Electro costume worn by Jamie Foxx in Spider-Man: No Path Home. The spatial distortions that appear around Radcliffe’s Spot share a similar appearance with the portals Doctor Strange often opens during battle.


Spot is one of the comic book villains who hasn’t received any form of live-action adaptation. Aside from his appearances in Marvel Comics, Spot has only appeared on television twice. In the 90s, Spot appeared in the animated series Spider Man, where he was voiced by Oliver Muirhead. Her second appearance is in another animated form, this time in the 2017 Spider Man series where he was voiced by Crispin Freeman.

Now that the MCU is starting to move away from the heroes and villains who have played a fundamental role in shaping the current Marvel landscape, there is room for Spot to appear in the MCU. Spot’s comic book ties to Kingpin, Spider-Man villains like Doc Ock, and other members of the Sinister Six suggest Spot could become a deadly member of the MCU. The growing problems caused by the multiverse could justify its appearance at some point, although that probably isn’t to help Spider-Man, Daredevil, or any of Marvel’s other heroes.


Spider-Man: No Path Home is now playing in theaters.

Jalandhar, December 21

Scraps of wool, bracelets, used ballpoint pens, rags and old sanitary ware were used by artists to create ethnic designer corners in the art exhibition held in Virsa Vihar.

The week-long exhibition, which kicked off Monday evening, was sponsored by the Apeejay Education Society and Dr Stya Paul Art Gallery. It will run until December 27.

Prabhjot Kaur, Income Tax Commissioner, was the guest of honor and Balwinder Kaur, Additional Income Tax Commissioner, was the guest of honor.

The exhibition features paintings, sculptures, digital art, photography and tapestry.

If I had wanted to make money first and foremost, I would have had a different career as a different person. I probably wouldn’t have chosen to be an artist. (The cryptography program)

While the staff was cut, the director of the Guggenheim won big – New tax returns show that as the Guggenheim laid off staff and cut wages, its manager, Richard Armstrong, saw his total compensation increase by 40% in 2020, to $ 1.5 million. That year, 11 percent of the museum’s staff were laid off, and senior employees (including Armstrong) saw their wages cut by 25 percent. Much of Armstrong’s income was due to a deferred compensation plan determined before the pandemic; a Guggenheim spokesperson noted that the pay cut “does not apply to compensation earned in previous years and paid in 2020”.

A citizens’ committee tasked with making recommendations for drainage bond projects voted Wednesday to divert public art funding to other drainage projects.

The committee met Wednesday night and voted to invest $ 165 million in 21 drainage and flood control projects; this list will go to city council early next year. The entire 2022 bond package is $ 1.2 billion and will be split into six different bond proposals in the May ballot.

District 7 committee member Bianca Maldonado said she supports removing the public art pledge from the drainage bond proposal, given the importance of city-wide drainage projects. .
