Tuesday’s are our Monday’s at Artpace. Thus, art happenings and interesting articles from over the weekend will now be posted on Tuesday Tidbits.
- On Sunday, Jerry Saltz, New York Magazine art critic, published a review of Kara Walker’s (HSR 99.3) two-gallery show in New York City. “Walker is brewing a stew. Longtime admirers will see that her drawing has taken leaps forward, gotten clearer, bolder, more immediate, suave, and intense. The way she takes over the gallery and your psychic space shows tremendous confidence,” writes Saltz.
- The Dallas Museum of Art and Menil Collection announced their joint acquisition of Italian artist Maurizio Catellan’s (IAIR 00.2) Untitled (2009). “This marks the first time that either the Dallas Museum of Art or the Menil Collection has acquired a work of art with a fellow museum. “
- Even though the rapture never came on Saturday, The Huffington Post provided its readers with a slideshow of apocalyptic art.
- 12 days left to see Glenn Ligon’s (IAIR 98.1) America retrospective at New York City’s Whitney Museum of American Art.
