Happenings: Design Miami/, our Holiday Sale, and London Openings
This week, Artsy launches a preview of Design Miami/, hosts a Holiday Sale to benefit non-profits, and features Charlemagne Palestine at Electronic Arts Intermix, as well as our friends at Architizer.
Elsewhere on the walls, London is full of openings: Stephen Shore at Sprüth Magers; Yutaka Sone at David Zwirner; Akram Zaatari at Thomas Dane Gallery and the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London; Kader Attia at Whitechapel Gallery; and at the Wallace Collection, “White Light/White Heat: Contemporary Artists & Glass,” a recreation of Venice Projects’ “Glastress” exhibition at the 55th Venice Biennale. Also of note: in Australia, Cai Guo-Qiang’s “Falling Back to Earth,” recently opened at Queensland Art Gallery; and in Berlin, Deutsche Bank opens the drawing exhibition “The Circle Walked Casually,” the first in a series to highlight their extensive collection.
In the news last week, after a 20-year tenure, the Sotheby’s worldwide head of contemporary art Tobias Meyer has resigned (Art in America); details surrounding the 2014 Whitney Biennial were released (New York Times); Tate Britain unveiled its £45 million renovation (The Telegraph); Paris Photo wrapped up with rave reviews (ARTINFO); the first-ever auction of modern and contemporary East African art, held in Kenya, was a success (The Art Newspaper); and sadly, the Queens, New York graffiti mecca “5 Pointz” was whitewashed before its impending demolition (New York Times).
And, in case you missed it, Artsy visited Rafael de Cárdenas in his studio; spoke to Brooke Kamin Rapaport, senior curator of the Giuseppe Penone show at Madison Square Park; caught up with Calder’s great-grandson Gryphon Rower Upjohn in honor of “Alexander Calder: Avant-Garde in Motion”; and featured the Miniature Museum’s announcement of their new museum.
