3 Days Left Before Art F City Roast


There are only three days left before we launch the Art F City Art World Roast Auction and Awards, otherwise known as The Art F City Roast, otherwise known         
as the AFCAWRAaA. The time to get your tickets is now. The time to start seriously perusing the Paddle8 site was yesterday. The bids are piling up!

We can't wait to hang out with you all at Postmasters this Monday, February 17th, if
for no other reason than we announce the award winners of our gilded butt plugs. This week, we've asked readers to weigh in on who they think should win these awards, and the results are pouring in. Can any artist defeat Richard Serra's strong hold on the Chris Christie Award for Most Significant Artist? Bushwick and Sunset park are running neck in neck the gentrification award category, which is measured
in high volume sales of organ meat and forced artist migration rates. And the power eyebrow category is in a near dead heat with Mary Boone holding only a slight lead over Glenn Lowry and Peter Brant.  Only you can break this tie, but you've got to act now. The polls close at midnight tonight, so make your voice heard and vote

Voting is just one way to prepare for the evening's festivities. I'm going to start by getting my nails done and finding a suitable dress. Art proms are fancy so we recommend ladies and gents prepare accordingly. We also recommend that anyone who is considering bidding, sign up for a Paddle8 account if they have not already done so. The only way to bid on silent auction items is through the Paddle8 website, so for those of you who are bidding in person at the auction having an account makes one less thing to worry about.

And that's great, because boy do we ever have a lot of great art. I'm talking choice work from established artists like Marilyn MinterNayland Blake and Deborah Kass to rising stars like Sara CwynarMatthew Leifheit and Aaron Williams.

So get your tickets and comb through the Paddle8 site. Then place your votes in our awards and clap your hands for a job well done.

See you Monday!

Louise Bourgeois, I Give Everything Away at The Fruitmarket Gallery

Louise Bourgeois, I Give Everything Away at The Fruitmarket Gallery


Published on Nov 4, 2013
Exhibition 26 October 2013 -- 23 February 2014.

Louise Bourgeois is one of the greatest and most influential artists of our time. In a career spanning seven decades, from the 1940s until her death in 2010, she produced some of contemporary art's most enduring images, making sculptures, installations, writings and drawings which, in mining her own psyche, have entered the collective unconscious.

Bourgeois's work is personal yet universal, rooted in the details of her own life, but reaching out to touch the lives of others. This exhibition of work on paper presents some of her most intimate work, both drawing and writing.

The exhibition begins with a labyrinthine presentation of Bourgeois's Insomnia Drawings, a remarkable suite of 220 drawings and writings made between November 1994 and June 1995. Created in the suspended state between sleeping and waking, The Insomnia Drawings contain all the major themes of Bourgeois's work and reveal the close link between drawing and writing that is such a key part of her practice. Also in the exhibition are two suites of large-scale works on paper, When Did This Happen? from 2007, and I Give Everything Away, made right at the end of the artist's life in 2010. A mix of writing, drawing and printmaking, these large works are both haunted and haunting.

This exhibition complements a major ARTIST ROOMS exhibition of work by Louise Bourgeois on display at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art -- Louise Bourgeois, A Woman Without Secrets, Modern One, 26 October 2013 -- 18 May 2014.
