Brussels to open Pompidou Centre art museum at a former Citroen garage

The European "capital" of Brussels is going to get its own version of the Pompidou Centre, the contemporary art gallery in Paris that has become one of world's biggest cultural attractions. The new Pompidou branch will be housed in a landmark building which residents of Brussels more closely associate with grease and grime, a 16,000 square-metre car garage on the banks of the city's rustbelt canal. "The Brussels region and the Pompidou Centre have signed a deal for the creation of a Pompidou Centre Brussels at the heart of a cultural hub," the Paris-based museum said in a tweet. Brussels has a somewhat grey reputation as home to the headquarters of the European Union and NATO and it is hoped that the new gallery will promote the city as a destination for the arts. The regional government of Brussels bought the vast location from French car manufacturer Citroen in 2015 for 20.5 million euros ($23.0 million) with the ambition of creating a cultural site to rival the MOMA in New York or t

US-France court battle tied to Picasso comes to a head

A French family holding rights to photographs of Pablo Picasso's artwork won a major victory against an American art editor in US federal court this week, in a 20-year legal battle that has outlived the plaintiff. A lawyer for American art publisher and dealer Alan Wofsy, who reproduced the photographs in volumes he sold, told AFP on Wednesday he would seek to have the court hear the case again, so the court fight may not be over. Plaintiff Yves Sicre de Fontbrune never saw his hard-fought victory come to fruition. He died last year, leaving his wife and three children to continue the battle with Wofsy. The saga has its roots in the strong ties between the celebrated Spanish painter, sculptor and printmaker with art critic Christian Zervos, who founded the prestigious Cahiers d'art journal. The Greek-born Zervos, who died in 1970 in Paris, produced a massive catalogue of more than 16,000 photographs of Picasso's artwork, which Cahiers d'art published as 33 volumes between 1932 and 1978

Gagosian exhibits works by Duane Hanson and Olivier Mosset

Gagosian is presenting an exhibition of works by Duane Hanson and Olivier Mosset. The hyperrealistic sculptures of Duane Hanson and the minimalist paintings of Olivier Mosset are brought together in this exhibition for the first time. The two artists, radically different and equally extreme in their respective lines of inquiry, seek, each in his own way, to test the boundaries of human perception. For Duane Hanson, highly detailed and precisely realized figuration became tools through which to resist objectivity and neutrality. Hanson’s startlingly lifelike human figures that portray people, with an emphasis on the American working class, distinguished his oeuvre over forty years. At the beginning of his career, Hanson created tableaux of traumatic and violent social upheaval, such as Abortion (1966) and Race Riot (1969–71), many of which he destroyed later, wishing to be remembered for

The Morgan opens retrospective of drawings by Jean Dubuffet

In the mid-1940s, French artist Jean Dubuffet (1901–1985) shocked the art establishment with his paintings inspired by children’s drawings, graffiti, and the art of psychiatric patients. Rejecting conventional notions of beauty and good taste, Dubuffet asserted that invention and creativity could only be found outside traditional cultural channels. In his efforts to emulate the immediacy of the untrained and untutored, he often turned to drawing, a medium in which he could indulge his passion for research and experimentation. Opening at the Morgan Library & Museum on September 30, Dubuffet Drawings, 1935–1962 is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s works on paper. The exhibition includes approximately one hundred drawings from Dubuffet’s most innovative decades and features rarely seen works borrowed from private and public collections in France and the United States. His favorite subjects were

Moscow gallery attack targets Ukrainian troop photos

Dozens of pro-Kremlin activists have attacked a Moscow exhibition of photographs of Ukrainian forces in the separatist conflict, defacing images, tearing down signs and forcing its temporary closure, organisers said on Thursday. A group of several dozen activists stormed into the Andrei Sakharov exhibition centre in protest at a display of documentary photographs of Kiev's troops in Donetsk, calling themselves defenders of the separatist region. The attacker targeted images shot by Sergei Loiko, a journalist who covered the conflict for the Los Angeles Times, and Belarusian Alexander Vasukovich, the centre said. The exhibition included Loiko's 2014 images of pro-Kiev fighters inside Donetsk's ravaged airport. The activists targeted the exhibition after a lone activist on Wednesday evening sprayed red paint on around a dozen pictures,
