ANTONI CLAVÉ I SANMARTÍ (Barcelona, 1913 - Saint Tropez, France, 2005). "La Punaise Rouge", 1982. Mixed media on paper glued on canvas. Signed and dated in the lower right-hand corner. Measurements: 50 x 53 cm; 64 x 67 cm (frame). Antoni Clavé is one of the most important figures in Spanish contemporary art. Trained in Barcelona, during the Civil War he settled in Paris, where he met Vuillard, Bonnard and Picasso. It was the Sala Gaspar in Barcelona which, following an exhibition in 1956, brought national recognition to an artist who by then enjoyed solid prestige both in Europe and the United States. He was awarded prizes at the Hallimark in New York in 1948, at the Venice Biennale in 1954 and at the Tokyo International Biennale in 1957. In 1984 the Spanish state recognised his artistic value with the exhibition of more than one hundred of his works in the Spanish pavilion at the Venice Biennale. That same year he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Generalitat de Catalunya. He is represented in the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum, the Tate Gallery, the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the British Museum in London, the Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo and the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid.

MoMA PS1 Announces 47 Artists and Collectives Featured in Greater New York Opening October 7

Greater New York, MoMA PS1’s signature survey of artists living and working in the New York City area, returns for its fifth edition from October 7, 2021 to April 18, 2022. Delayed one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this iteration offers an intimate portrayal of New York by creating proximity between key— yet often under-examined histories of art-making and emerging practices. Featuring the work of 47 artists and collectives, Greater New York offers new insights and opens up geographic and historical boundaries by pinpointing both specific and expanded narratives of the local in a city that provokes a multitude of perspectives. Bridging strategies of the documentary and the archive on the one hand, and surrealism and fabulation on the other, the exhibition considers the ways that artists work to record social and personal experiences around belonging and estrangement. Drawing connections across the interdisciplinary practices of international and intergenerational artists, Greater New York examines the many ways that affinities are formed in relation to place and through time.

ANTONI TÀPIES PUIG (Barcelona, 1923-2012). "Untitled". Mixed media on paper. Signed in pencil in the lower right corner.

ANTONI TÀPIES PUIG (Barcelona, 1923-2012). "Untitled". Mixed media on paper. Signed in pencil in the lower right corner. Attached certificate issued by the Comissió Tàpies. Measurements: 27.5 x 74 cm., 53 x 101 cm. (frame) Co-founder of "Dau al Set" in 1948, Tàpies began to exhibit at the Salones de Octubre in Barcelona, as well as at the Salón de los Once held in Madrid in 1949. After his first solo exhibition at the Galerías Layetanas, he travels to Paris in 1950, with a grant from the Institut Français. In 1953 he had a solo exhibition at Martha Jackson's gallery in New York. From then on, he exhibited his work, both in group and solo shows, all over the world, in leading galleries and museums such as the Guggenheim in New York and the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. Since the 1970s, anthologies have been devoted to him in Tokyo, New York, Rome, Amsterdam, Madrid, Venice, Milan, Vienna and Brussels. Self-taught, Tàpies created his own style within the avant-garde art of the 20th century, combining tradition and innovation in an abstract style full of symbolism, giving great importance to the material substratum of the work. It is worth noting the marked spiritual sense given by the artist to his work, where the material support transcends its state to signify a profound analysis of the human condition. Tàpies' work has been highly valued internationally, being exhibited in the most prestigious museums in the world. Throughout his career he has received numerous prizes and distinctions, including the Praemium Imperiale of Japan, the National Prize for Culture, the Grand Prix for Painting in France, the Wolf Foundation for the Arts (1981), the Gold Medal of the Generalitat de Catalunya (1983), the Prince of Asturias Prize for the Arts (1990), the Picasso Medal of Unesco (1993) and the Velázquez Prize for the Plastic Arts (2003). Antoni Tàpies is represented in major museums all over the world, such as the foundation that bears his name in Barcelona, the Reina Sofía in Madrid, the Guggenheim in Berlin, Bilbao and New York, the Fukoka Art Museum in Japan, the MoMA in New York and the Tate Gallery in London.

ANDY WULF: Taking heart in times of crisis

“In times of crisis, we must all decide again and again whom we love.” — Frank O’Hara. It is a steamy, overcast Saturday, typical of late summer here in the Deep South. At the museum, our two new exhibitions by up-and-coming artists Sanaz Haghani and Cedric Smith tackle the role of women in a theocratic society and the forgotten history of African-American horse culture, respectively. These breathtaking works by these artists bring into high relief the power of art to be both beautiful and thought-provoking, to push us to question our notions of gender and race, historically and today.
