Wishing a happy birthday to Yayoi Kusama, who was born on this day, March 22, in Matsumoto, Japan!

On this occasion, we are looking back at the artist’s longest-running series of Infinity-Nets.

“My desire was to predict and measure the infinity of the unbounded universe, from my own position in it, with dots—an accumulation of particles forming the negative spaces in the net. How deep was the mystery? Did infinite infinities exist beyond our universe?”
—Yayoi Kusama

A selection of Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity-Nets will be featured at our stand, 3E07 at Art Basel Hong Kong () this coming week.

Kenneth Victor Young’s “Openness,” from 1972, is currently showcased at the Crocker Art Museum as part of the “Black Artists in America: From Civil Rights to the Bicentennial” exhibition, which is available for viewing until May 18, 2024.

BLACK ARTISTS IN AMERICA
FROM CIVIL RIGHTS TO THE BICENTENNIAL
FEBRUARY 04, 2024 — MAY 19, 2024
Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento

 
Black Artists in America explores African American art during the turbulence of the late 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. In the 1960s, Black artists who came of age during World War II and the civil rights movement continued to challenge inequities in the art world. They created brilliant and powerful works of art that celebrated their racial identity, communicated with Black audiences, and participated in the struggle for equality. With works by Romare Bearden, Alma Thomas, Charles White, and many others, the show considers how Black American artists responded to growing civil unrest, challenging the social issues of the era. Black Artists in America is curated by Professor Earnestine Jenkins, University of Memphis. The exhibition is organized by Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Memphis.

Happy Birthday to Robert Motherwell who was born on this day, January 24, in Aberdeen, Washington. 

“The Function of the modern artist is by definition the felt expression of modern reality…It is the values of our own epoch which we can find in past art.” - Robert Motherwell (1915-1991)

Motherwell, a key figure in Abstract Expressionism, was renowned for his emotionally intense, bold works, balancing spontaneity with control, and significantly influenced mid-20th century American art as both an artist and a theorist. 

Motherwel’s engagement with symbolism and the subconscious is clear in his “Elegy to the Spanish Republic ‘’ series, reflecting on the Spanish Civil War. These paintings, with recurring black and white motifs, embody the conflict’s dichotomies—life and death, repression and freedom. Beyond literal representation, they capture the war’s essence and its impact on humanity, symbolizing universal themes of tragedy and resistance. This series, with over 100 paintings created between 1948 and 1967, stands as a poignant “lamentation or funeral song” for the war, highlighting the enduring struggle against fascism and the sorrow of loss.

On view now at Edward Tyler Nahem. “Stephen Janson (known to some as Stephen Gluck),” 1988, is a painting of substantial bearing and painterly effect, created in Julian Schnabel’s breakthrough Plate Paintings, which launched his career as a leading figure of the Neo-Expressionist movement in the 1980s. 

Striking in scale, this portrait is an exceptionally successful example of the artist’s signature style, innovatively using a roughly fractured ground of broken earthenware as a painting support. The sculptural nature of the ground, a field of household ceramics broken, re-configured, and glued with Bondo to a wooden panel. 

While in Barcelona in the late 70s, Schnabel discovered Antoni Gaudi’s ceramic mosaics, of which he wrote, “I was in Barcelona for a while that summer and looked at Gaudi’s work; it had a certain kind of reflective quality and density of color and light that I felt hadn’t really been used in painting, that was sort of off the ground and had a … pictorial possibility besides the psychological one.” - Carter Ratcliff, New Again: Julian Schnabel, Interview Magazine, January 2016.

The tapestry-like style in which Schnabel’s brushwork, in concert with the jagged texture of the ceramic ground, create a densely composed surface, whose elements coalesce to form a remarkably resonant portrait of the renowned French couturier Stephen Janson.

“The plates seemed to have a sound, the sound of every violent human tragedy, an anthropomorphic sense of things being smeared and thrown. I was trying to tear the mosaic out of its own body to make a bridge to something just outside of my own body. All of this was happening before I even started to paint the painting.” - Julian Schnabel, CVJ Nicknames of Maitre D’s and Other Excerpts from Life, 1987, New York page 149.

“I tend to paint everyone, most everyone, with their eyes closed because I feel that we are blind to one another’s humanity. So if we could see the gifts, strengths, and potentials within every human being, then our eyes would be open.” - Ernie Barnes

Barnes’ upbringing in the segregated South of Durham, North Carolina, profoundly shaped his artistic journey. Transitioning from an NFL career to a dedicated artistic pursuit, Barnes’ work richly embodies his personal history.

In 2020, UTA Artist Space () showcased “Liberating Humanity from Within,” a significant presentation of Ernie Barnes’ artistry. This exhibition was not merely a display but a realization of Barnes’ own vision, a collection he carefully assembled before his passing in 2009. Comprising twenty-three figurative paintings, mostly from his later years, this exhibition offers an in-depth exploration into Barnes’ cultural and historical milieu. In collaboration with Playlab, the exhibition was transformed into a multi-dimensional narrative, vividly bringing Barnes’ legacy to life through an encompassing sensory journey.

“When I became an athlete I didn’t stop being an artist.” - Ernie Barnes

On view now at Art Basel Miami Beach (). We are thrilled to be presenting Yosh*tomo Nara and Hiroshi Sugito’s “Untitled,” from 2004.

This work is part of the “Over the Rainbow” series, which the two artists developed during a three-month residency in Vienna, collaborating on a book and hosting a joint exhibition. The project takes the magical land of The Wizard of Oz as it’s point of departure, an influence that can be noted in the Dorothy-inspired ginger braids of the girl in this work.

Today marks the fair’s first of three public days. Visit us at Edward Tyler Nahem, Stand D10, and experience this extraordinary work firsthand until December 10th.
