I first visited Havana in November 2016, a few days after Fidel Castro died, and just under a year before Hurricane Irma hit Cuba in September 2017.

Was Lucio Fontana, at heart, just an easily distracted ceramicist? So one might conclude from the current exhibition at the Met. The show reveals a chameleon figure, highly responsive to the prevailing winds of art and politics. He worked across many artistic disciplines, in contexts that should have been antithetical to one another, leaving an overall impression of adaptability shading into opportunism. The one through-line is his work in clay, which is often breathtaking in its radical conception.
Dr. Ute Eggeling and Michael Beck first established their gallery in Leipzig in 1994 and at the same time opened a branch in New York City. Fours years later, in 1998, the gallery moved to Düsseldorf, a traditional centre for the Arts since the 1960s, re-establishing themselves in a new area.
For more than 20 years now Beck & Eggeling has been featuring a sophisticated and ambitious art programme, with an emphasis on German Expressionism, Post-war art, especially the ZERO-period, as well as different movements of international contemporary art.
An important impulse is to act as an agent to convey art visibly to the public, to interpret art and to use it in order to shape the social discourse of our time.
