Jean Paul Gaultier, Contemporary Istanbul, IFPDA, and Pollock, Restored
This week, Artsy covers the Brooklyn Museum’s “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk”—the first international exhibition of the couturier—and previews Contemporary Istanbul, Turkey’s leading international art fair, and IFPDA, the art fair of fine prints from all periods.
Elsewhere on the walls, Jason Jacques Inc. brings Michael Geertson’s alien ceramics and Gareth Mason’s earthly jars of shards and stone to SOFA Chicago 2013, Paris’ Gagosian Gallery holds John Currin’s recent strange and beautiful feminine portraits, and Marianne Boesky Gallery offers cave paintings from Jay Heikes in “Walkabout,” opening tomorrow.
In the news last week, MoMA restores its entire collection of Jackson Pollock’s work (ARTnews), WWII-era posters signed by Gustav Klimt and others are recovered and on sale (New York Times), and the success of the first-ever digital-art auction is up for debate (ART F CITY).
And, in case you missed it, Design Miami/ shared “Eight Books on Great Women Designers,” Artsy talked to artist-novelist Doug Coupland on art and Canada, plus Francesca Gavin, Judy Chicago Studio, and Annabelle Selldorf gave us their respective highlights from this year’s Frieze London and Frieze Masters art fairs.
