Faith Ringgold Will Keep Fighting Back

June 11, 2020 - The New York Times, Bob Morris

ENGLEWOOD, N.J. — Faith Ringgold has seen plenty of shake-ups and strange moments in her 89 well-traveled years. But the provocative Harlem-born artist — who has confronted race relations in this country from every angle, led protests to diversify museums decades ago, and even went to jail for an exhibition she organized — has had no reference point for the pandemic keeping her in lockdown and creatively paralyzed in her home in this leafy suburb for much of the spring.

Expert Eye: Isaac Julien shares his favourite works at Art Basel in Miami Beach

December 7, 2019 - The Art Newspaper, Gabriella Angeleti

As we traverse Art Basel in Miami Beach, Isaac Julien is mobbed and praised by collectors and fans at every other step. The London-based artist and film-maker is best-known for his poetic and visionary documentaries such as the film installation Lessons of the Hour: Frederick Douglass (2019), which is being shown at Metro Pictures. In the fair’s new Meridians section is the US premiere of Julien’s Lina Bo Bardi—A Marvellous Entanglement (2019), a tribute to the late Brazilian artist and architect.

The 10 Best Booths at Art Basel in Miami Beach

December 5, 2019 - Artsy, Alina Cohen

At the Art Basel in Miami Beach press conference on Wednesday morning, Dan Gelber, mayor of Miami Beach, likened the 18th edition of the fair to a teenager “coming of age.” That may be true in many respects: This year’s presentation at the Miami Beach Convention Center expects collectors from over 70 countries, and features 269 galleries from 33 countries. Yet the fair is still youthful enough to accept a good prank. One of the most talked-about artworks is a banana duct-taped to a wall. The piece is by none other than Maurizio Cattelan and aptly titled Comedian (2019); two of three editions were sold by Perrotin by the end of the VIP preview, each priced at $120,000. Below, we share some of our non-biodegradable favorites from the fair.
