Happenings: LIFE Gallery of Photography, A Host of Openings, and a Miami Recap
This Week, Artsy recovers from an excellent week at the Miami art fairs with our sale from LIFE Gallery of Photography, featuring some of the most iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Grace Kelly, and historic photographers including Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstaedt, and Andreas Feininger. In addition we continue our feature on Electronic Arts Intermix and highlight some of our superb gallery profiles.
Elsewhere on the walls, in New York, “Ink Art” explores Contemporary Chinese art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; “California Dreaming” opens at Von Lintel Gallery; a show featuring Lisa Kirk and Marina Abramović opens at INVISIBLE-EXPORTS; and Sean Kelly Gallery opens a Slater Bradley exhibition. In Los Angeles, “Goya and the Spanish Masters” opens at the Norton Simon Museum and Matthew Brandt opens at M+B. And in China, Yayoi Kusama’s “A Dream I Dreamed” opens at MOCA Shanghai.
