Monday Art News

Here’s some news and views from the past week. Send your art news or press releases to me and I might post it.

  • John of Iridescent Art News mentioned a hairy rock in Japan, which I think looks like an Andy Warhol wig stuck to a rock.
  • BBC reports that David Hockney thinks bigger is better.
  • ArtInfo has interviewed the American artist Richard Tuttle.
  • ArtDaily mentions the sale of an Edouard Manet for $7.5 million. The naked beauty (Femme nue se coiffant) was sold to an American collector.
  • ABC Australia talks about an exhibition of cows.. all cows.
  • Robert Genn has packed the video camera with the paint brushes and gone plein air.
  • The Age talks about Aboriginal art in Australia, after Emily Kame Kngwarreye breaks the $1 million barrier at auction. This is not only a record for an Australian Aboriginal artist, but also a record price paid for any Australian female artists.
  • National Reconciliation Week in Australia. I know it’s not art, but it is important.
  • BoingBoing shows a bike sculpture, with lots of bike locks all over it.
About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.

  1. I enjoyed all your links, the bike sculpture is a great. I agree with your feelings about reconciliation, what a super idea.
