As its title suggests, Ugo Rondinone: I ♥ John Giorno is both a valentine from a sweetheart and an open invitation to explore the legacy of an iconic New York poet. In celebration of John Giorno's eightieth birthday, Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone, who is his husband and occasional collaborator, has restaged and substantially expanded an elaborate exhibition of the same name that appeared at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in late 2015.
Cahiers d’Art is one of the world’s most distinguished publishers of the visual arts. We work directly with artists and their estates to create a revue, books, limited edition books and prints, and catalogues raisonnés–each of which is a celebration of the artist’s individual character and
Founded in 1926 by Christian Zervos at 14 rue du Dragon in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, ‘Cahiers d’Art’ refers at once to a publishing house, a gallery, and to a revue. Cahiers d’Art was entirely unique: a journal of contemporary art defined by its combination of striking typography and layout, abundant photography, and juxtaposition of ancient and modern art, where writers like Tristan Tzara, Paul Éluard, René Char, Ernest Hemingway and Samuel Beckett often replaced the usual art critics. The early days of Cahiers d’Art coincided with the advent of the Bauhaus, Le Corbusier, of Klee and Kandinsky, and with Zervos’s exploration of primitive art and Cycladic archaeology.
From 1930 until the outbreak of World War II, the journal concentrated on the work of Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Léger, Ernst, Arp, Calder and Giacometti, amongst others. By 1932, Cahiers d’Art had published the first volume of the Picasso Catalogue, a project that would become a life’s work, prepared by Zervos together with Picasso.
Artist collaborations with Cahiers d’Art often yielded original artwork. Joan Miró’s 1934 pochoirs and his Aidez L’Espagne, produced in 1937, and Marcel Duchamp’s Fluttering Heart of 1936, perhaps the world’s first example of kinetic art, are some of the most iconic images ever produced by these two artists.
Christian and Yvonne Zervos organized between two and five exhibitions per year between 1932 and 1970 at the Cahiers d’Art gallery space, including the work of Calder, González, Tanguy, Laurens and Brauner. By 1960, Zervos had published ninety-seven issues of the Cahiers d’Art revue and more than fifty books, including monographs on El Greco, Matisse, Man Ray, and African and Mesopotamian Art. Zervos’s work on the Picasso Catalogue continued from 1932 until his death in Paris in 1970. These thirty-three volumes have since become the definitive reference for Picasso’s work.
Swiss-born artist Ugo Rondinone entered Shanghai’s Rockbund Art Museum (RAM) like a human prism, shattering the usual museum wall white into the full spectrum of visible color. His solo exhibition, Breathe, Walk, Die, includes concentric circles of blurred colors, plastic filters placed over the museum’s windows to colorize the light...
