Head of near-intact marble sphinx discovered at mysterious fourth century BC Greek tomb

The head of a near-intact marble sphinx has been discovered in the largest tomb ever unearthed in Amphipolis, northern Greece, the culture ministry announced on Tuesday. Discovered in the fourth chamber of a burial mound at the site in the northern region of Macedonia, the sphinx is more than half-a-metre (18 inches) high and was marked by "traces of red", according to a statement from the ministry. Archaeologists also found fragments of the sphinx's wings within the same burial mound. "The sphinx's head belongs to the body of a sphinx which was found previously," said the statement. It was the latest find by archaeologists who unearthed the enormous tomb dating back to fourth century BC and the time of Alexander the Great of Macedonia in early August. Previously they have discovered the mosaic of a man driving a chariot, carved caryatids -- columns of female figures that serve as architectural support -- and a large mosaic depicting the abduction of Persephone by Pluto.

Christie's Shanghai opens doors: New international art venue and offices in China

In a formal ceremony that witnessed the performance of a creation of a unique work by artist Qin Feng, Christie’s officially opened their new exhibition space and office in Shanghai at the historic Ampire Building, near the Bund. “When James Christie first opened the doors in London in 1766, nearly 250 years ago, his intention was to bring people art lovers together with the art they loved. Today in Shanghai we open this wonderful building that speaks of the history of the city, the tradition of Christie’s and yet also feels very contemporary and looks to the future. This building gives us the opportunity not only to bring art from around the world to Shanghai, but to bring the art of China to the rest of the world,” Steven Murphy, Chief Executive Officer, Christie’s commented in his opening remarks. “China now plays a hugely important role in the global art market. Nearly one third of

Exhibition of new work by John Baldessari opens at Marian Goodman Gallery

Marian Goodman Gallery presents an exhibition of new work by John Baldessari, Movie Scripts/ Art, 2014 which opened to the public on Wednesday, October 22nd, and run through November 22nd. Baldessari’s relationship to words and pictures, his pairing of photography and language, was first brought into the realm of art in the Text paintings and Photo-text paintings of the 1960s. Later, his characteristic pairing of image and text, selecting and contrasting unrelated objects, paved the way for a pictorial system assembled of incongruent elements that interact and correlate with each other, allowing for subtle shifts of meaning and context. In later series, such as the National City works, Goya series, Elbows, Tetrads, Prima Facie and onwards, Baldessari broke the canvas into

Nicholas Serota, director of the UK's Tate is number 1 in this year's edition of the ArtReview Power 100

Serota, who has appeared in the top ten of every list since the Power 100’s 2002 launch, was ranked number 1 this year on account of the way in which Tate has, since the launch of Tate Modern, consistently deployed an international – rather than a national – perspective on art production. Tate has come to epitomise almost all the elements of the current ‘global’ artworld, where the distribution of art is arguably now more important than its production. Tate Modern remains the most visited modern and contemporary museum in the world and the organisation has partnerships from Seoul and Sydney to Berlin and Oman. As it performs the traditional museum role of validating artists through its shows, Tate also provides the same service for collectors, who are invited to join its various boards and committees. Tate also advises on or

Rare Abstract Avant-Garde paintings lead Sotheby's inaugural 20th Century Art: A Different Perspective Sale

Sotheby’s will hold an inaugural 20th Century Art – A Different Perspective sale in London on 12 November 2014, featuring modern art from countries across Europe and around the Mediterranean by artists who have a strong regional following but are not yet part of the international mainstream. Leading the sale is a group of works by artists who were at the forefront of the intellectual avant-garde in Europe between the First and Second World Wars. Their principal occupation was the exploration of non-figurative art and in the pursuit of art’s highest form of purity they decreed that painting must be abstract. The auction, comprising 74 lots, also features a strong selection of early twentieth-century figurative works by artists who had assimilated the tenets of impressionist and cubist painting. Tessa Kostrzewa, Sotheby’s Head of Auction Sales, 20th Century Art, said: “We are thrilled to present the inaugural
