Johnny Depp's Jean-Michel Basquiat works electrify Christie's sale room

On 29 June 2016, Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Auction saw determined bidding in the room and on phones to achieve exceptional sell through rates of 92% by lot and 98% by value with 50% of works selling over estimate and 30% within estimate. The top three works of the night were by American artists that sold globally with buyers in Asia and Europe. Registered bidders from 39 countries across four continents demonstrated the continued demand in the global contemporary market, as well as a proven strength of the domestic market with 10 lots selling to UK-based collectors. The top lot of the evening was Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Pork (1981), selling over its high estimate for £5,122,500 / $6,838,538 / €6,167,490. A major draw, two works from the Collection of Johnny Depp were a highlight of the night, with Basquiat’s Self Portrait (1981) more than doubling its high estimate to reach £3,554,500 / $4,

World's largest uncut diamond fails to sell in London

The world's largest uncut diamond failed to sell at auction in London on Wednesday after the bids fell short of the reserve price. The Lesedi La Rona, a 1,109-carat, tennis ball-sized gem found in Botswana, had been predicted to sell for over $70 million. But the Sotheby's auctioneer failed to persuade bidders to go above $61 million for the jewel, which was discovered in 2015 by the Lucara Diamond Corp. "Though widely admired in the months preceding this evening’s auction, and despite having seen bidding in the salesroom, the Lesedi la Rona failed to reach its reserve price and consequently did not find a buyer tonight," Sotheby's said in a later statement. Sotheby's chairman of jewellery David Bennett had called the diamond "the find of a lifetime." "No rough even remotely of this scale has ever been offered before at public auction," Bennett said ahead of the auction. Precious stones have been fetching ever-higher

A Plain Art: Centre Pompidou opens new exhibition

With « Un art pauvre » (« A Plain Art »), a completely new, multidisciplinary event, the Centre Pompidou proposes an analysis of artistic practices linked with the idea of « plainness » in creation from the Sixties onwards: not only in the visual arts, of course, with the prominent Arte Povera movement, but also in the field of music, design, architecture, theatre, performance and experimental cinema. Sensitive to traces, reliefs and the most elementary manifestations of life, the artists of the Arte Povera movement, and more largely of « plain art », drew on every kind of archaic gesture. They all frequently used natural and waste materials. And though none of them wanted to make gold from straw or rags, all of them sought to establish a new symbolic power. This form of recycling was not so much a creed as a practice ; it was originally an opposition to American minimalism. Arte Povera came about through emulation, not thr

Getty Museum launches Art + Ideas podcast

The Getty today launched Art + Ideas, a regular podcast featuring J. Paul Getty Trust President and CEO James Cuno in conversation with creative thinkers about their work. The podcast launched with six episodes featuring ceramicist and author Edmund de Waal, architect Frank Gehry, MOCA Chief Curator Helen Molesworth, archeologist Colin Renfrew, and art historians T.J. Clark and Yve-Alain Bois. Upcoming episodes feature poet and musician Patti Smith and artist Charles Ray, among others. “Through my work at the Getty, I have the great privilege of meeting smart people working on exciting things, and these podcasts are my way of sharing these stories and ideas with interested audiences,” said Cuno. Over the past several months, Cuno has recorded conversations with scholars, curators, conservators, architects, artists and authors about their work, their interests, and issues relating to the arts and the work of

Vancouver-based artist Douglas Coupland looking for Van Gogh lookalike

I’m Douglas Coupland, a writer and artist based in Vancouver, Canada. I'm currently crowd-sourcing the planet looking for the head of Vincent Van Gogh — or rather, his closest lookalike. The head that comes closest will become the source material for a large bronze sculpture commission. I'm learning that most people have someone in their life who looks like Vincent van Gogh. It could be your next door neighbour. It could be a guy at work. It could be you. I’m asking people to submit photos of their suggested candidate to the website The one person who the artist thinks best resembles Vincent van Gogh, will be given €5,000 euros and will be flown with a guest to Vancouver for a unique experience. They will be 3D-scanned and their facial data will become Vincent van Gogh’s likeness on Coupland’s final 2 meter by 3 meter sculpture, forever immortalizing them in bronze and on a plaque bearing the lookalike’s name. The Vincent van Gogh br
