Rank #7: Timothy Taylor on Alex Katz, Ding Yi and Running a Global Art Gallery

Podcast cover
Read more
Timothy Taylor has a space in New York that measures 16 x 34 feet. The intimacy of the gallery appealed to his artist Alex Katz who helped create a show around one of his student sketchbooks. The small works set in a small space offer a very different experience of the artist known for his work at scale.

In this podcast, Timothy Taylor talks about the changing ways in which art dealers must operate to represent their artists well while coping with the constraints of ever-rising retail space rents in major metropolitan centers and the growing interest in art from collectors in far-flung cities across Asia and the West.

Taylor, who has just opened a show of Ding Yi's new work in his London space, has also brought Alex Katz and Sean Scully to China. He sees the way that dealers represent their artists requires thinking creatively and hints that the future of art dealing may already be upon us.

Sirius XM produced this interview between artist Sam Gilliam and Jonathan Binstock, the director of Rochester's Memorial Art Gallery and a Gilliam scholar.

On the occasion of Gilliam's return to the Venice Biennale 45 years after he represented the United States, this far-ranging conversation covers the artist's entire career. Born in Louisville, Kentucky where Cassius Clay, Sr. (Muhammed Ali's father) was a prominent painter, Gilliam encountered a European refugee Ulfert Wilke at the Louisville and became his studio assistant.

He also eventually encountered the Gutai artists in Japan, Bob Thompson and moved eventually to Washington, DC where Kenneth Noland was at the center of the Color Field movement and the city was "a town of connection."

Throughout this conversation Gilliam talks of the lifelong struggle to make art and make a life as an artist. His career followed no clear trajectory but has been punctuated by encounters with an endless cast of 20th Century artistic influences culminating in his most recent turn in the center stage.

Rank #11: Phillips CEO Edward Dolman

Podcast cover

"This is why Phillips positioning is right. We essentially believe in an international Contemporary art marketplace and we believe most tastes converge at some point." ——Edward Dolman, CEO Phillips Auction House

In the two and a half years since Edward Dolman took over the helm of Phillips auction house, he has been engaged in a remaking of the firm from an upstart auction house focusing on the fringes of the Contemporary art market to a serious alternative to Sotheby's and Christie's with a seat at the table when the biggest art deals are being made.

In this podcast, Dolman talks about how the expansion of the Contemporary art market has made Phillips's strategy viable and profitable.

He talks about the new team he has spent the last two years hiring—with leading specialists who decamped from Christie's and Sotheby's—and how their arrival will position the auction house to expand into new collecting fields and penetrate other regions of the world.

He discusses the growing financialization of the art market and the role guarantees play in facilitating art transactions, especially public ones. Dolman shares his view of the watch, jewelry and collectible markets. Finally, shares his thoughts on the global auction calendar and how that is likely to change in the coming months and years.

Lock Kresler discusses Lévy Gorvy's exhibition, 'Source and Stimulus' open until April 21, 2018 at 22 Old Bond St in London. The show features a series of outstanding museum quality loans and seminal examples of works by all three artists in the exhibition including Roy Lichtenstein’s ‘Frightened Girl’ (1964), being seen publicly for the first time in 25 years having been hidden away in a private collection in Europe since its last public display in 1993, when it was shown in the artist’s retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Lévy Gorvy is also exhibiting Sigmar Polke’s ‘Untitled (Couple)’ (1965-66), which was purchased directly from the artist and has never been seen publicly or published before, and ‘Girlfriends’ (1964-65), which featured prominently in Polke’s retrospectives in 2014 at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and London’s Tate Modern.

The exhibition also sees two paintings by Gerald Laing reunited for the first time since they were created in 1965. ‘Shout’ and ‘Rain Check’ were sold the same year by Richard Feigen to two different collectors in the US, and neither work has been seen publicly since then.

In addition, Lévy Gorvy has a video (https://youtu.be/_9tFL9b1LDI)about the exhibition and you can see images of the show on the gallery's website (https://www.levygorvy.com/exhibitions/source-and-stimulus-polke-lichtenstein-laing/).

Rank #16: Eykyn Maclean's Nicholas Maclean on the Private Market

Podcast cover
Read more
Nicholas Maclean spent nearly a decade as the co-head of Christie's Impressionist and Modern art department along with his partner, Christopher Eykyn, before opening his own New York and London-based gallery, Eykyn Maclean, 11 years ago.

In this podcast, Maclean talks about the often overlooked private market where many substantial collectors who do not buy or sell through auction houses conduct a surprising amount of business that potentially dwarves the public art market.

Maclean also talks about the difficulties for dealers in acquiring new work in today's art market where the overall public sales volume has fallen substantially without having an effect of weakening prices.

In this climate, Maclean points to Italian Pop art as a potential area for collectors to find high quality work at prices that have yet to equalize with the rest of the global art market.

Finally, Maclean shares his thoughts on new collectors and their behavior in the art market.

At the Peninsula hotel in Los Angeles, Art in America hosted a brunch for the highlighting the magazine's January Issue on Artificial Intelligence and Generative art. Artist, scholar, and collector Anne Spalter joined A.i.A. editor William S. Smith and tech entrepreneur Laura Lehmann for a conversation about the history and future of computer art.

Spalter, author of the influential history The Computer in the Visual Arts (1999), described how her research into a field within art history that was neglected at the time led to her interest in collecting. She and her spouse, Michael Spalter, have built a significant collection that includes work created between the 1950s and 1980s by pioneering figures such as Vera Molnár, Georg Nees, and Koji Fujino. Though many of the compositions were produced by algorithms, the designs were fabricated with plotter printers on paper. The Spalters’ collection of computer art features many pieces in traditional mediums. Lehmann articulated an expanded view of collecting, noting that the meaning of collecting and curating is changing as those activities become widespread on social media. A new generation accustomed to managing collections of digital imagery on a daily basis could very well transform fundamental values in art and assumptions about its singularity.

To Repel Ghosts: Jean-Michel Basquiat's Self Portrait from the Collection of Matt Dike

Podcast cover
Read more
In this podcast made in collaboration with Phillips, Scott Nussbaum, head of 20th Century and Contemporary Art at Phillips, New York and Fred Hoffman, curator of a seminal Basquiat retrospective and author of The Art of Jean-Michel Basquiat, talk about Matt Dike's relationship to the artist, their work together in Los Angeles in the 1980s, their friendship around music and the gifts of art Basquiat made to Dike.

Chief among those gifts was the self portrait painted on two doors and a panel that will be sold during Phillips May 16th Evening sale in New York. Moved directly from Basquiat's studio to Dike's home, the work is a rare example of Basquiat's art never to have been sold before, as Fred Hoffman explains in his catalogue essay for Phillips:

"As one of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s most compelling depictions of himself, Self Portrait, 1983 presents a metaphysical subject on two related panels. The full-length representation of the artist is juxtaposed with an adjacent panel portraying both his personal incantation, “To Repel Ghosts”, and his characterization of the passage from the material to the eternal. Self Portrait is unique, having been executed on two found doors, one which also includes an attached plywood panel. This singular painting was executed in Venice, California sometime in 1983 at New City Editions, the print studio where Basquiat produced his now acclaimed silkscreen works, Tuxedo, 1983, Untitled, 1983 and Back of the Neck, 1983. The creation of this painting is recorded in filmmaker Tamra Davis’ acclaimed documentary, The Radiant Child, possibly the only extant film documentation of Basquiat working on a painting.

As conveyed to the author by Tamra Davis, after having completed the work, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Tamra Davis moved the work to the studio of Matt Dike in West Hollywood. The work is also documented in Tamra Davis’ 1988 promotional video for Matt Dike’s record label Delicious Vinyl, in which Matt Dike and his business partner Mike Ross are filmed sitting on a couch with Self Portrait in the background."

As part of an international program to celebrate the gallery’s 25th Anniversary, Dickinson held a panel discussion at their New York space during Spring TEFAF. Conversation centered on the multiplicity of sources of advice in the art market and how collectors can be best served as they seek to acquire art.

On the panel are Megan Fox Kelly, President of the Association of Professional Art Advisors and an advisor with a broad practice that includes helping new collectors to find their bearings in the art market and advising artist's estates and foundations on a market-facing strategy; Todd Levin, who has built noteworthy collections that have achieved verifiable market successes as well as curated his own shows at various galleries in New York, Los Angeles and Berlin; and William O'Reilly, Senior Director with Dickinson in New York where he works with collectors of Old Master through to Contemporary Art.

The lively conversation explores the relationship between advisors, collectors and the art market ecosystem, and the joys and pitfalls of building a collection.
