Editor’s Letter

The art world has been very hard at work, lately; from artists, gallerists, performers, and agents to city officials, event planners and the media; all have been working diligently to make preparations; as some of the world’s wealthiest art collectors descend on Miami for one of the most renowned Art Fairs – On Earth. Art Basel Miami, as Symposium readers well know; began in 2002, on the edge of a growing art market, as a spinoff of the successful Art Fair in Basel, Switzerland. Since launching in 2002, Art Basel Miami has seen an explosion in not only the turnout of collectors and curators, but of the over two dozen satellite fairs that have set up shop in Miami, at the same time; the hopes of these satellite fairs obviously being, to attract Basel’s collectors. This issue of Symposium marks a milestone for us as a publication. Over the last year, we have worked towards providing our readers, with a broad view into the World of visual art; our special Art Basel 2008 edition is certainly no exception. With one of the most comprehensive guides to Art Basel Miami Beach and the many satellite fairs surrounding it, Symposium not only offers its readers a wealth of information; but, does so, with the visual sophistication of superior design.

SYMPOSIUM

With the entire buzz around about whether we will see depletion in turnout and dollar signs, or whether the biggest parties will be more extravagant, or less extravagant; or whether there will be more celebrities or fewer celebrities, where we should go to see them, what we should wear and who we should show up with; let us pause to remember what this is all about: “Beauty, truth, immortality, order, harmony – these concepts and ideals have occupied us since the dawn of history. They enrich our lives and encourage us to extend ourselves beyond the limits of flesh and blood. Without them, life would be but a mean struggle for survival, and the value of survival itself would be unclear� -Pablo Picasso Thank you, dear readers, for joining us yet again. And, oh yeah, enjoy the art.

ART H E A D L I N E S DALLAS Sebastiano Ricci (1659-1734) The Vision of St. Bruno, ca. 1705 Courtesy of Heritage Auction Galleries

which point it appears in a probate list of works owned by Joseph Philipson (1773-1884) – a fur trader, banker and brewer whose dry goods store outfitted explores Lewis and Clark. Noted as the city’s first permanent Jewish settler, Joseph Philipson’s goal as a collector was to establish a public art museum in St. Louis, Missouri, which no one had done before. The Joseph Philipson Gallery of St. Louis was the very first collection of Old Master paintings west of the Mississippi river, and one of the earlier assembled anywhere in the United States. Philipson assembled some 400 works of Renaissance, Baroque and early 18th century paintings. It is believed that he most likely acquired the Ricci around 1814 in Paris. Sometime between 1844 and 1848, ownership of the painting was transferred to St. Louis lawyer and State Senator Charles Samuel Rannells (1813-1877), most likely to pay off legal fees. For more than 160 years, his descendants have owned The Vision of St. Bruno. It was never publicly exhibited or published, merely passed down from one generation to the next with no one aware of its origins or worth.

Lost Masterpiece of Sebastiano Ricci Discovered in Dallas The Vision of St. Bruno is a valuable, 300-year old Baroque masterpiece by celebrated master Sebastiano Ricci (1659-1734). For centuries, its whereabouts were unknown. Earlier this year, it was discovered in a Texas warehouse and now it is up for auction. The three-by-four foot painting depicts Saint Bruno, founder of the Carthusian order. He is shown in a landscape scene, reclining on the ground as he contemplates angels above. It was created around 1700 by Sebastiano Ricci (1659-1734) with the assistance of his nephew, Marco Ricci (1676-1730), who worked on the landscape. Prior to the recent discovery, the painting’s whereabouts were unknown, and few suspected it would ever be found. Its last known owner was an 18th century Italian nobleman, Count Francesco Algarotti (1712-1764), famous as an art connoisseur who, among other notable cultural achievements, shaped the Royal Collection in Dresden.

“Not having known the whereabouts of The Vision of St. Bruno any time after the 1776 publication of Algarotti’s collection, modern-day Ricci scholars have consistently recorded this painting in their catalogues as lost,” says Dr. Edmund Pillsbury, Chairman of Fine Arts at Heritage Auction Galleries and former Director of Fort Worth’s Kimbell Art Museum. Dr. Pillsbury was invited by a Dallas family about a year ago to a local fine-art warehouse, where the painting had recently been put in storage. “I went up without any particular expectations,” he admits. However, after examining it, Pillsbury determined that it was “the lost” Ricci masterpiece. Now, with the assistance of its most recent owners and aided by Heritage researchers, Pillsubury has successfully solved the mystery of its provenance. Following Algarotti’s death in 1764, ownership of the painting was not recorded again until 1844, at

Laura Taylor of Dallas, great-great granddaughter of Charles Rannells, says she remembers the painting hanging in her grandparents’ parlor and then in her parents’ living room. Her mother, who had seen another work by Sebastiano Ricci in a St. Louis art gallery, was the first to have suspicions about its significance. “She knew it was an important painting,” says Taylor. “She’s spent her whole lifetime trying to find out for sure.” Now, after centuries in the shadows, “the lost” Ricci painting has been consigned to auction by a Rannells family descendant. Conservatively estimated for its Dallas sale in the range of $600,000 to $800,000, interested parties can bid for The Vision of St. Bruno online at www.HA.com/5002 or visit Heritage Auction Galleries in Dallas. “The last important Ricci sold for $2.4 million. So, it’s fair to say it could go in the low seven figures,” says Pillsbury. “The painting’s grand design, confident use of rich Venetian palette, fluid brushwork and its beautifully preserved surface, show Sebastiano Ricci at his finest. The work is a grand example of why the artist enjoyed wide appeal in eighteenth century England, France and Austria as well as his native Italy.” 08

ATLANTA significant object: French sculptor Antoine-Louis Barye’s bronze “Lion Crushing a Serpent.” Themes of interest include the significance of technical mastery and the creative process, as well as the impact of the artist’s reputation. The presentation also incorporates smaller models and studies of the lion figure. The High Museum of Art launched its unprecedented three-year partnership with the Musée du Louvre in October 2006 to critical acclaim, continuing the High’s longstanding strategy of collaborating with international institutions to bring great art to Atlanta. “Louvre Atlanta” is bringing hundreds of works of art from Paris to Atlanta through a series of long-term thematic exhibitions exploring the range,

The Louvre and the Masterpiece Comes to Atlanta The High Museum of Art in Atlanta is currently showcasing The Louvre and the Masterpiece, on view until September 6. Featuring 91 works of art drawn from all eight of the Musée du Louvre’s collection areas (spanning 4,000 years), the exhibition explores how the definitions of a “masterpiece,” as well as taste and connoisseurship, have changed over time. Paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, and drawings will reflect three major themes: the changing historical and cultural definitions of a masterpiece; authenticity and connoisseurship; and the evolution

of taste and scholarship. Together, the three sections of the exhibition explore a range of thematic questions about the concept of a masterpiece. The first section of the exhibition – entitled “What is a Masterpiece?” – is divided into two distinct parts. Part one explores the changing historical definition of “masterpiece” as a concept through a selection of objects from the ancient Near East through mid19th-century works. The second part introduces the idea of connoisseurship as a means of identifying works from the past as masterpieces. “Evolution of Taste and Knowledge,” the second section of the exhibition, explores masterpieces that were either rediscovered or reattributed based on the changing knowledge and perceptions of Louvre curators during the past 200 years. Included will be ten paintings and sculptures by artists who are well known today but who were overlooked in previous eras. In the third and final section of the exhibition, “Barye in Context,” several major themes are further explored through an in-depth examination of one

depth, and historic development of the Louvre’s collections. “Our partnership with the Louvre has brought outstanding, inspiring, and exciting works to Atlanta during the past two years. Now we have the opportunity to explore why some works of art are considered masterpieces,” said Michael E. Shapiro, Nancy and Holcombe T. Green, Jr. Director of the High Museum of Art. “Through a magnificent group of works in the Louvre’s collections, we’re suggesting that the definition of masterpiece is not fixed in time or place. We are also working to develop special interactive technologies that will provide visitors with new insights, enjoyment, and appreciation of the art.” 08

IRAQ

U.S. Department of State Implements Iraq Cultural Heritage Project Following an announcement made by First Lady Laura Bush on October 16, the U.S. Department of State will begin implementation of the Iraq Cultural Heritage Project (ICHP), an initiative aimed at assisting in the preservation Iraq’s ancient history. Appearing at a ceremony hosted by the Embassy of Iraq in Washington, D.C., First Lady Laura Bush explained that the State Department – through the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad – will be funding the ICHP with a grant of nearly $13 million, adding that an additional $1 million will be provided by the department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), “and Iraqi officials are requesting increased funding from their own government that will complement the project’s goals,” said the first lady. “Americans have become well versed in Iraq’s recent history,” said Mrs. Bush. “Yet many of us may not realize that the people of today’s Iraq are the guardians of 10,000 years of history – tablets etched with the earliest samples of human writing, musical instruments from the kingdom of Sumer, statues from the time of King Nebuchadnezzer. All of these ancient objects belong to the ‘Cradle of Civilization’ – a land we now call Iraq.” Implementation of the ICHP begins immediately and will take place over a two-year period. The project consists of three main areas of activity to be carried out with the guidance and cooperation of the Iraq

Ministry of Culture, ECA, and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. First, the ICHP will establish a Conservation and Preservation Institute in Erbil to be performed under technical guidance provided by the Walters Art Museum, the Winterthur Conservation Program, the University of Delaware, and the U.S. National Park Service. The new institute will train professionals “to preserve Iraq’s historic treasures and to protect more than 12,000 registered archaeological sites in Iraq,” said the first lady. Second, improvements will be made to the Iraqi National Museum. These will include the construction of storage facilities, as well as enhancing exhibition galleries and conservation facilities to further the core mission of the museum. The Iraq National Museum is “home to one of the world’s finest collections of Mesopotamian antiques,” said Mrs. Bush. “This institution has endured frequent closures during times of war and social unrest.” The museum’s doors were permanently sealed in 2006, but “the Iraq Cultural Heritage Project will hasten the day when the museum reopens its collections to all Iraqis – as well as to scholars and visitors from around the world.”

archaeologists and museum professionals. Under the program, Iraqis will study in the United States, “where they’ll learn the new methods of preservation that they were largely isolated from during Saddam Hussein’s regime,” said Mrs. Bush. Not only will the Iraq Cultural Heritage Project “promote national unity by highlighting the rich heritage that all Iraqis share,” but the project will also “benefit all humanity by preserving the great historic sites, archaeological wonders and cultural objects that tell the story of the world’s earliest communities,” said Mrs. Bush. “The United States is proud to partner with Iraq as it rebuilds its capacity to safeguard its birthplace of human civilization.” 08

VIRGINIA

Unpublished Edgar Allan Poe Manuscript Found with Never Before Seen Verse A recently discovered version of “The Sleeper” (otherwise known as “Irene”), one of Edgar Allan Poe’s most important poems, has surfaced in rural Virginia. It is not only the unpublished and earliest version of a poem that Poe considered even better than “The Raven,” but it also features a new verse never before seen by the public. The poem that would eventually be known as “The Sleeper” had many versions. In the 1831 collection entitled Poems of Edgar A. Poe, the lyric poem appeared with 74 lines under the title “Irene.” It was published again as under the same title in 1836. By the time it appeared in the Philadelphia Saturday Courier on May 22, 1841, it was 60 lines and the title had been changed to “The Sleeper.” The last version was published in the Broadway Journal in May 1845.

Hartshorn (1848) From Library of Congress “Famous People” collection, Prints and Photographs Division, Reproduction Number: LC-USZ62-10610 This image is in the public domain because its copyright has expired

Poe frequently proclaimed “The Sleeper” to be a superior composition, worthy of more praise than it received. In a letter to admirer George W. Eveleth in 1846, Poe wrote, “In the higher qualities of poetry, it is better than ‘The Raven’ – but there is not one man in a million who could be brought to agree with me in this opinion.”

According to recent findings, the poem originated in 1830 – shortly after his foster mother had died – and written under the title “Lady Irene.” Found in the friendship album of a local belle of antebellum Richmond, where it was penned in Poe’s exquisite cursive handwriting, it remains the earliest example of one of the poet’s most potent themes – a lamentation on the death of a beautiful woman. The provenance of this find is impeccable and truly extraordinary. It contains a new stanza and other textual variants not found in the published versions. “Lady Irene” will be offered for auction in New York City on December 4 as part of Bloomsbury’s Important Books, Manuscripts, Literature, and Americana sale. Other highlights from the sale include a letter discussing religion typed and signed by Einstein, an Assyrian palace foundation brick from 1305-1274 BC with cuneiform describing the reinforcement of a canal, an autographed letter signed by John Adams wishing for retirement from public life and revealing his disdain for factional politics, and a rare separate state printing of The Constitution of the United States following its ratification.

Museum Reunites William Randolph Hearst’s Famed Collection From November 9 to February 1, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) will present Hearst the Collector, an unprecedented exhibition reuniting approximately 150 of the best works of art from the vast and varied holdings of media tycoon William Randolph Hearst (1863-1951). One of the most flamboyant collectors of all time, Hearst assembled a massive and distinguished collection that was largely dispersed and sold during a liquidity crisis in the late 1930s. The negative portrayal in the acclaimed Orson Welles film Citizen Kane – a dark reinvention of Hearst’s life – is largely attributed to the collection’s limited acclaim. Now, with many of the most significant objects brought together once more, Hearst is revealed as an accomplished and discriminating collector. The heir to a colossal fortune stemming from the Gold Rush of 1849, Hearst used his wealth to transform a single newspaper into a multi-media conglomerate. It was the beginning of a largerthan-life existence that warranted larger-than-life possessions. His 240,000 acre ranch in California was bigger than Washington, D.C., and his fivestory apartment in New York was the largest in the world. At these and other locations, Hearst housed a compilation of priceless antiquities that vastly exceeded that of any other collector in the world. The most important aspects of Hearst’s activities as a collector will be presented in LACMA’s exhibition, including his particularly strong collections of arms and armor, silver, and Renaissance tapestries. In

each of these areas, he surpassed virtually all his contemporaries, amassing the greatest quantity of top-tier works. His classical antiquities boasted the illustrious provenances of historic British collections, but his passion for California and American frontier, exemplified by his collection of 300 Native American textiles, set him apart from traditional American collectors in New York and Boston.

Half his collections were liquidated in 1937 after Hearst’s empire was threatened with financial crisis. Much of Hearst’s Georgian silver was purchased (with funds provided by John D. Rockefeller, Jr.) to begin the collection at Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia. Fully 25 percent of the renowned Otto von Kienbusch Collection of arms and armor in the Philadelphia Museum of Art came from Hearst. And other treasures eventually found their way to the Rijksmuseum, the Louvre, Metropolitan Museum of Art, J. Paul Getty Museum, and many other museums ranging from Mexico City to Jerusalem. Hearst donated hundreds of works of art to the Los Angeles County Museum of History, Science, and Art (which opened in 1913), thus laying the foundation upon which LACMA was eventually established in 1965. Hearst the Collector celebrates this history in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the 1958 opening of Hearst Castle (the palatial estate built by Hearst halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, now a State and National Historic Landmark) to the public. A number of extraordinary loans from Hearst Castle will be highlighted to show the breathtaking range of Hearst’s interests. The installation design of Hearst the Collector, conceived by David Hundley, is inspired by the grandeur of Hearst residences, and filtered through a minimalist design sensibility. The result is a neutral viewing experience that allows visitors to focus on the beauty of the individual objects, while suggesting the scale of rooms in which the objects were originally displayed. 08 Claudio Coello, The Virgin Appearing to Saint James, Spain, 1677 Photograph by Victoria Garagliano/ © Hearst Castle ®/ CA State Parks Courtesy of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art

MIAMI Avvakumov who participated in the underground art movement during the Perestroika era. Today, after 17 years of living in a new socio-economic reality, Russian Dreams reflects ambivalence towards a lost utopia, as well as a reflects on the sense of contradiction and tension that is today’s 21st century Russia. The works in this exhibition resonate with the disconnected, random associations of dreams. They inhabit the profound melancholy over what has been lost. “This is an extraordinary fecund time for Russian art, with a diverse group of artists producing exciting and innovative work,” says Olga Sviblova, Director of the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow and curator of Russian Dreams. “To truly understand this incredible moment in contemporary art, we need to look back to the generation of artists who had been categorized in an oddly romanticized way simply as ‘underground.’ Russian Dreams allows us to reexamine the works of these influential Sotsart artists in their own right and, in doing so, appreciate their impact upon artists working today.” 08 Yuri Avvakumov, Black Bone Mausoleum.

Bass Museum of Art Presents Works by Leading Russian Artists From December 4 to February 8, The Bass Museum of Art in Miami will partner with the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow to present Russian Dreams, a groundbreaking exhibition of cutting-edge works by contemporary Russian artists. In Russian Dreams, the artists have been selected to represent two distinct factions. The first encompasses those artists who emerged in the 1980s and ‘90s, a time when Russian art was continuing to sustain itself through volatile oppression and state-ordered censorship. The second group represents those artists whose work developed after the fall of the Soviet Union. Russian Dreams juxtaposes these two groups in order to effectively explore the evolution of Russian art through a significant period in time.

the scope of their work has changed. Examples from this group include Julia Milner, Rostan Tavasiev, Haim Sokol, and MishMash Project. Many of the pieces in Russian Dreams are intimate, personal, narratives, while others look back, referencing the bolder Sotsart of Yuri Albert and Yuri

Artists from the first group are the modern icons of Russian art, having risen to prominence in the era of Perestroika. Launched in June 1987, Perestroika was Mikhail Gorbachev’s program to implement economic, political, and social restructuring. Two unintentional results of the program: the toppling of the Soviet Union and a satiric blend of Socialist Realism and Pop Art, known as Sotsart, that parodied official state-produced art. Examples from this group include AES+F Group, Alexander Ponomarev, Vladimir Dubossarsky and Alexander Vinogradov, Dmitri Gutov, and Alexei Kostromacame. The second group of artists is typically between 20 and 30 years old. Their work has developed in a new, post-Perestroika Russia. Government bans on personal expression have been lifted and, as a result,

Alfred Kubin (1877-1959), Die Promenade (The Promenade), ca. 1904-05 Courtesy of the Neue Galerie New York

First American Museum Exhibition Devoted to Alfred Kubin The first major museum of exhibition to showcase the work of artist Alfred Kubin (1877-1959) is on view at the Neue Galerie New York through January 2009. The exhibition entitled “Alfred Kubin: Drawings, 1897-1909,” has drawn considerable Alfred Kubin in the first year of interest among his residence in Munich, 1898 scholars and in the Courtesty of the Neue Galerie press, with New York New York Magazine citing it as one of the exhibitions “you really cannot miss this fall.” Presenting more than 100 early drawings, watercolors, and lithographs, the exhibition highlights the expressionist illustrator’s penchant for the macabre.

his drawings are wildly varied technically and imaginatively. Populated by all kinds of mythic beings and monsters, they can be hilarious, creepy, scary, otherworldly, earthy and cosmic. Collectively they envision a world that is the opposite of that of modern science and technology: one that is driven by human irrationality, animal instincts and supernatural forces.

Coming of age in Munich in the late 19th century, he discovered the works that would become his major influences: the fantastic and morbid prints of French Symbolist Odilon Redon and of Beligian painter James Ensor, and the strange and imaginative etchings of German artist Max Klinger. Kubin’s early drawings were usually executed in an ink-and-wash technique that attempted to emulate the velvety aquatints of Redon and Klinger. He later adopted a more spontaneous-looking drawing style that is often described as “spidery.”

“Kubin plumbs the depths of the shadow world of the human subconscious, with its unguarded impulses and fears,” says Renée Price, Director of the Neue Galerie. “His drawings have the evanescence and the frightening clarity of our darkest dreams.” 08

Throughout his career, he worked almost exclusively on sheets of paper. Despite this restrictive format,

With literature as his source of inspiration, Kubin produced hallucinatory visions of violence and eroticism, illustrating for writers like Edgar Allan Poe, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and Nikolai Gogol. Included in the exhibition are illustrations from Kubin’s bizarre 1908 novel The Other Side. The artist’s entire iconography points to his traumatic experiences as a child and youth. Having witnessed his mother’s death at the age of 11, he became obsessed with death and dying, in particular murder and suicide. He suffered from acute anxiety and sexual paranoia, and his drawings show the influence of those maladies.

MAM Receives Gift of Fifty Works from the Vogel Collection The Miami Art Museum (MAM) has been selected to receive a gift of fifty works of art from New York collectors Dorothy and Herbert Vogel, with the help of the National Gallery of Art, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The gifts are part of a national gifts program entitled The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States. It will distribute 2,500 works from the Vogels’ collection of contemporary art throughout the nation, with fifty works going to a selected art institution in each of the fifty states. Artists whose work is being donated to Miami Art Museum include Will Barnet, Joel Fisher, Donald Sultan and Richard Tuttle. “The Miami Art Museum is proud to be the one museum chosen to represent the state of Florida,” says Terence Riley, Director of the Miami Art Museum. “The gift is generous and will make a significant impact on our collection. When all fifty of the pieces arrive, we will be cataloguing and studying them, and will look forward to sharing them with the public in an exhibition as a whole within the next two years. Once we move to our new building at Museum Park, they will be rotated into our collection at large and seen and appreciated in fresh new ways. This, I believe is precisely what the Vogels want for these works, for which they have so much personal passion.” The best-known aspects of the Vogel Collection are minimal and conceptual art, but these donations also explore numerous directions of the post-minimalist period, including works of a figurative and expressionist

nature. Primarily a collection of drawings, the 2,500 works the Vogels are donating also include paintings, sculptures, photographs, and prints by more than 170 contemporary artists, mainly working in the United States. Gifts to the first ten institutions were announced in the spring of 2008. The Vogel Collection has been characterized as unique among collections of contemporary art, both for the character and breadth of the objects and for the individuals who created it. Herbert Vogel (b. 1922), spent most of his working life as an employee of the United States Postal Service, and Dorothy Vogel (b. 1935), was a reference librarian at the Brooklyn Public Library. Setting their collecting priorities above those of personal comfort, the couple used Dorothy’s salary to cover the expenses of daily life and devoted Herbert’s salary to the acquisition of contemporary art. With the exception of the collection formed by their friend, artist Sol LeWitt, no other known private collection of similar work in Europe or America rivals the range, complexity, and quality of the art the Vogels acquired. “We hope this will be a truly national program, and that it will make the work of the many artists we admire familiar to a wider audience. We also hope our gifts will enable museums throughout the country to represent a significant range of contemporary art,” says Dorothy Vogel. 08

Underwater sculpture artist Jason DeCaires Taylor has embarked on the first phase of his new ambitious underwater project off the coast of Mexico. Located within the National Marine Park of Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Nisuc, the installations, designed to form artificial reef structures, will encompass a monumental body of work consisting of over 200 figurative pieces. Drawing on various influences, the works will include both contemporary and Mayan narratives and develop the use of live propagated coral within the structures. The first pieces, which are currently in construction, are entitled El archivo de sueños and El jardinero de coral. Creator of the world’s first underwater sculpture park, Jason de Caires Taylor has gained international recognition for his unique work. His sculptures highlight ecological processes and explore the intricate relationships between modern art and the environment. By using sculptures to create artificial reefs, the artist’s interventions promote hope and recovery, underlining the need to understand and protect the natural world. The recently completed land-based sculpture, Un-Still Life II, explores growth and organic transformation as part of the Municipality of Paliani Stone Symposium in Crete, Greece. The sculpture was carved from a single block of Travertine stone, the central area of which was removed to create a chamber, which was then filled with soil and compost. Nine hundred holes were drilled from the external face of the sculpture to the central chamber and filled with earth and seeds from native plant species. Like its underwater counterpart, which has been changed, marked and eaten by coral and other marine organisms, UnStill Life II will also be transformed and brought alive by the growth of the plant material. 08

THE PAINTED

Paperback publisher Picador USA is reissuing 10 of Tom Wolfe’s 14 books – both novels and non-fiction – in an attempt to reach an audience of readers not yet familiar with the acclaimed author. This December Picador will publish The Painted Word, a scathing assessment of the art world as it existed in the 1950s and ‘60s. Though it was published more than 30 years ago, is The Painted Word still relevant today? The art may have changed but is the art world, still as Wolfe described it then?

There are many passages that read less like an edited work and more like a series of epiphanies someone has only recently written down. But, after awhile, Wolfe’s cadence contains a comprehensive clarity. The thesis: critics and so-called “art experts” have become more important than the artists themselves, not to mention the public. “In short: frankly, these days, without a theory to go with it, I can’t see a painting,” proclaims Wolfe. In other words, without understanding what a critic has to say about a piece of art, the artwork cannot be properly understood. And this, Wolfe observes, has resulted in a generation of artists who create works solely for the sake of critics and their wealthy art patrons. “The public is not invited (it gets a printed announcement later),” Wolfe writes. “The public whose glorious numbers are recorded in the annual reports of the museums, all those students and bus tours and moms and dads and random intellectuals…are merely tourists, autograph seekers, gawkers, parade watchers, so far as the game of Success in Art is concerned.” Success in Art is achieved through a process Wolfe calls “the art mating ritual.” First, the artist must play the part of the steadfast bohemian, and this earns them critical approval. Afterwards, they must ever-so-slightly transition to courting the approval of high society art patrons. Those unable to pull it off are doomed to obscurity. According to Wolfe, “Many artists become so dedicated to bohemian values, internalize their antibourgeois feelings so profoundly, that they are unable to cut loose, let go…and submit gracefully to good fortune; the sort of artist…who always comes to the black-tie openings at the Museum of Modern Art wearing a dinner jacket and paint-spattered Levi’s.”

How did it all get this way? Wolfe provides his own history in the following account: “In the beginning we got rid of nineteenth-century storybook realism. Then we got rid of representational objects. Then we got rid of the third dimension altogether and got really flat (Abstract Expressionism). Then we got rid of airiness, brushstrokes, most of the paint, and the last viruses of drawing and complicated designs.” And, then there was conceptual art: “… there, at last, it was! No more realism, no more representation objects, no more lines, colors, forms, and contours, no more pigments, no more brushstrokes. …Art made its final flight, climbed higher and higher in an ever-decreasing tighterturning spiral until…it disappeared up its own fundamental aperture…and came out the other side as Art Theory!” In response to Wolfe’s critical look at Modern Art, he himself received derisive criticism. The long litany of bad reviews all seemed to agree that, Wolfe simply didn’t know what he was talking about, because he didn’t know enough about art. And, in a way, their response validates his thesis. Art is an elusive creature, characterized by esoteric virtues that very few people understand, and yet most people will still look upon it with the stern appearance of complete and total comprehension. The question remains as to whether Wolfe’s observations belong to the period in time of which he wrote, or do they continue today. It’s a question to which only a learned few would know the answer. And, as such, perhaps it answers itself. 08

CCHE FILM REVIEW

8 SYMPOSIUM | 17

By Michael Antonioni

The 2008 Spanish-language biopic Che tells the story of Ernesto “Che” Guevara, the Marxist revolutionary turned martyr turned pop culture icon. Directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Benicio del Toro as Che, the film is a merged version of two films: The Argentine and Guerilla. The first part (The Argentine) is a depiction of the Cuban revolution. It begins with Fidel Castro and Guevara leading an army of revolutionaries on their journey from Mexico to Cuba in 1956. It ends two years later with the overthrow of Fulgencio Batista. In this film, Guevara is portrayed at the pinnacle of his impassioned youth. He is eager and ambitious, fighting for the pursuit of a noble cause. By contrast to The Argentine, the second film (Guerilla) is noticeably anticlimactic. Containing less of the revolutionary fervor portrayed in the prior film, the story takes on an introspective tone. It begins with Guevara abandoning his life in Cuba, a life made comfortable by the success of the revolution that is perhaps too comfortable for a bent on continuing the revolution. He travels to Bolivia and attempts to once again manifest a government of Marxist idealism. His efforts, however, are unsuccessful. Without the camaraderie and unity of the Cuban revolution, Guevara is the isolated leader of a fruitless rebellion. At the conclusion of the film, he is shot to death in a rural schoolhouse by a drunken Bolivian soldier, the ignoble end to a thrilling story. As one might imagine, with so much to tell, the movie is by no means short. When it was screened on May 21 at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival it reportedly ran over four hours. Afterwards,

Soderbergh cut five to seven minutes from each half of the film. It was shown at the 46th New York Film Festival and at the 33rd Toronto Film Festival as two separate films, separated by a 15 minute intermission. Despite its length and controversial subject-matter, Che has been a source of much fanfare. At the Cannes Film Festival, Del Toro won the Best Actor Award for his portrayal of Guevara in the film. The Canadian press called Che the “must-see” film of the Toronto Film Festival. And it premiered to a sold-out audience in Los Angeles at AFI Fest on November 1. On the other hand, early reviews of Che have been mixed, with some critics hailing it as a landmark source of cinematic brilliance and others calling it an inaccurate depiction of a controversial figure. In her review for the New York Times, based on a screening at the New York Film Festival, Manohla Dargis observes that “throughout the movie Mr. Soderbergh mixes the wild beauty of his landscapes with images of Che heroically engaged in battle, thoughtfully scribbling and reading, and tending to ailing peasants and soldiers.” According to Dargis, “Che wins, Che loses, but Che remains the same in what plays like a procedural about a charismatic leader, impossible missions and the pleasures of work and camaraderie,” referring

to the “historical epic” as “Ocean’s Eleven with better cigars.” However, Dargis notes that “Mr. Soderbergh cagily evades Che’s ugly side, notably his increasing commitment to violence and seemingly endless war, but the movie is without question political – even if it emphasizes romantic adventure over realpolitik – because, like all films, it is predicated on getting, spending and making money.” As Christopher Hitchens once wrote, “Che’s iconic status was assured because he failed. His story was one of defeat and isolation, and that’s why it is so seductive. Had he lived, the myth of Che would have long since died.” He later added in a July 2004 Guardian piece by Sean O’Hagan that the legend of Che Guevara endures not because of how he lived, but how he died. “He belongs more to the romantic tradition than the revolutionary one,” Hitchens said. “To endure as a romantic icon, one must not just die young, but die hopelessly. Che fulfills both criteria. When one thinks of Che as a hero, it is more in terms of Byron than Marx.” 08 Title:

THREE NEW DEALS Reflections on Roosevelt’s America, Mussolini’s Italy, and Hitler’s Germany, 1933-1939 The Great Depression was an international phenomenon that stretched far beyond the borders of the United States. Burdened by an incredible economic crisis, three very different countries came up with remarkably similar solutions for dealing with extraordinary problems. Wolfgang Schivelbusch’s book Three New Deals: Reflections on Roosevelt’s America, Mussolini’s Italy, and Hitler’s Germany, 1933-1939 compares their efforts by identifying the tactics unanimously adopted by Germany, Italy, and the United States.

President Roosevelt took office in March 1933 and immediately received from Congress powers “unprecedented in times of peace,” writes Schivelbusch. He used his authority to enact a series of emergency relief measures collectively known as the New Deal. Strange as it may seem, the measures undertaken by Roosevelt were not unlike those pursued by Germany and Italy.

into moral disrepute,” attempts to transform public opinion were hidden behind terms like “education” or “information.” Still, many elements of American life, from Roosevelt’s radio address to the Blue Eagle (a symbol provided to businesses who pledged compliance, and used to stigmatize those who did not) represent traditional methods of propaganda.

One similarity: all three nations were led by popular, charismatic leaders. Granting autonomous power to a single individual was part of what Schivelbusch calls the “psychology of politics” that followed the Great Depression. “People no longer looked to liberal democracy, which they held responsible for the Depression, for protection and guidance. Instead they placed their trust in a new type of authoritarian state, personified by Il Duce and the Fuhrer in Italy and Germany, and symbolically by President Roosevelt in the United States.”

From the modern perspective, democracy and fascism/national socialism are polar opposites. To suggest otherwise, as Schivelbusch does here, is no doubt provocative. But the comparison is not to be considered an attack on America, nor is it a defense of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. Wolfgang Schivelbusch is a historian, an academic in search of genuine truth, for whom the tough questions are the most important to ask. Innovative and well-researched, Three New Deals merely illustrates the harsh circumstances endured by these nations and their similar efforts to combat economic peril.

Another similarity: all three initiated various publicly-funded projects. Massive public projects reduced unemployment and improved living standards. “For Fascism, the New Deal, and National Socialism, those projects were, respectively, the reclamation of an area of swamplands, the building of dams and power plants along a forgotten river valley, and the construction of a national network of highways.” In Italy, Mussolini drained the Pontine Marshes southeast of Rome. In Germany, highways and roads were constructed. In the United States, Roosevelt initiated the Tennessee Valley Authority Act. Yet another similarity: all three used propaganda to manifest public approval. The Nazis were the most notorious government to use propaganda, going so far as to create a department for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda. But, according to Schivelbusch, other political systems were not above manipulating public opinion. Because, in the United States, “propaganda fell

It was a period of transition that culminated in World War II. When it ended, there was a dramatic shift in world order. And, perhaps, it’s the aftermath that proves to be most fascinating. Before World War II, “the United States, in contrast to militaristic Europe, was a peaceable republic of merchants,” notes Schivelbusch. “This self-image was reversed with little fanfare during the forty years of the Cold War; official acknowledgment came only with the new doctrine of preventive war and its implementation in Iraq in 2003. That Germany – the militarist monster of the past, America’s enemy in two World Wars, and since 1945, its most loyal ally – refused to participate in the invasion of Iraq made the exchange of roles powerfully clear.” 08

THE WRESTLER Evan Rachel Wood and Mickey Rourke Courtesy of Fox Searchlight Pictures

Marisa Tomei and Darren Aronofsky Courtesy of Fox Searchlight Pictures

Mickey Rourke Courtesy of Fox Searchlight Pictures

Director Darren Aronofsky’s latest film The Wrestler tells the story of Randy “Ram” Robinson (Mickey Rourke), a professional wrestler from the 1980s who is forced to retire after a near-fatal heart attack. He takes a job at a deli, attempts to form a relationship with an aging stripper (Marissa Tomei) and does his best to reconcile with his estranged daughter (Evan Rachael Wood). It is the quintessential tale of the antihero, a man plagued by demons and flaws who dreams of one last chance to redeem a life of limited consequence.

The Wrestler is the fourth film by director Darren Aronofsky, who obtained international acclaim with Pi (1998) and later confirmed his limitless potential with Requiem for a Dream (2000). His third film The Fountain (2006) received mixed reviews and generally lacked the praise afforded to his earlier works. Now, in The Wrestler, he has not only opted to use the peculiar backdrop of professional wresting, he has also chosen to resurrect the career of actor Mickey Rourke. Rourke has, for the most part, managed to fade into film oblivion, though his early career looked replete with promise. Starring in films like Diner (1982) and Rumble Fish (1983), he played alongside a large ensemble of proven and promising talents, but it was Rourke who always seemed to stand out. In later years, however, his personal life overshadowed his acting career and rumors surfaced that directors found it difficult to work with him. He continued to work steadily, although he rarely appeared as the lead, and when he did it was usually in movies that failed at the box office. So, when Aronofsky picked Rourke over Nicolas Cage for the lead role in The Wrestler, it seemed strange. But, to the surprise of many, Rourke ended up being perfect for the role. The film may not be

Aronofsky’s best (it’s not bad but it doesn’t stand up against Pi and Requiem for a Dream), but it says something about him as a filmmaker that he chose to cast Rourke in the lead. Rourke transforms a predictable, sentimental drama into a gritty rendering of real emotion. Shot in rough-andready handheld style, the camera is rarely off him, nor does one want it to be. He expresses the full life of this man with his every word and gesture. Also in top form is actress Marissa Tomei. As the aging stripper Cassidy, she propels the character beyond the role of a mere female companion, forging for her a path to redemption not unlike Ram’s. As was the case with last year’s film Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, Tomei’s willingness to appear nude is bound to receive some attention. In this film, however, one is more aptly reminded of the short role she had in Factotum (2005), in which Tomei plays Laura, the world-weary alcoholic girlfriend of Henry Chinaski (played by Matt Dillon). It seems interesting enough to note that Chinaski – the autobiographical antihero of author Charles Bukowski – is a character Rourke also portrayed in Barfly (1987). In fiction, the goals of the antihero are antithetical to those of traditional heroism. But, as is the case

with The Wrestler, the modern hero is bound by the moral complexities of an antihero. Ram is by no means a noble person, but he is not without virtue. His virtues resonate through the pain he personifies. His life has been dominated by pain in all its forms. Inevitable, inexorable, unpreventable, the pain is always present, so he devotes his life to it and at it he excels. He asks for no sympathy. And, while he may have regrets, he has no complaints.08

Darla Teagarden captures another world with her portraits. Thickly layered with its own vividly salacious splendor, each of her photographs resembles a dream that borders on a hallucinatory vision. “My photos are a direct tap into my inner life, the way I want real life to be all the time,” says Teagarden. Having no formal training, Teagarden’s artistic capacity has relied on past experiences. Photography is only the latest in a long series of her artistic endeavors. She was a make-up artist in Paris, a hair stylist in San Francisco, and a vintage clothing retailer in Germany. As a cabaret stage performer, she learned about set design and lighting. As a painter of semilarge mixed media pieces, she learned and practiced the principles of visual art. She calls her work “a one-night-only play, holding still.” Like a drama performed on a stage, her photographs are the culmination of a long and arduous preproduction process. Afterwards, little is done to alter her photos, so she relies on set design, hair, makeup and lighting. “My methods are pure theatre, learned by performing,” says Teagarden. “I begin by outlining in a sketchbook what my scene is going to be. I then build the narrative

through props which I also sketch, then build in my garage.” Each of her props is handmade and handpainted, constructed out of plywood oils, acrylics, pastels and chalk. The process can take up to a week and a half to complete, whereas the shoot itself lasts only a couple of hours. “Most of the work comes before the model arrives,” says Teagarden. Historical styles, particularly the 1920s, permeate her portraits – part of a postVictorian nuance evidenced by exaggerated lips and corsets that appear in image after image. Clothing is used to further shape the surreal. Though outdated, the vintage clothing in her photographs is at least recognizable, contrary to the setting in which it is displayed. To the viewer, it is familiar imagery in an unfamiliar world. As such, clothing provides a basis in reality that magnifies the illusory surroundings.

Reality versus unreality is a prevailing theme. Teagarden contrasts conventionality and absurdity by providing both in a single image. Her photographs match people – often real, but sometimes unreal – with a counteracting environment – often unreal, but sometimes real. The Closing and Bee Charmer (Silver Cloud) are works in which the people are real and their environment unreal. In both, the setting is a surreal world characterized by a supernatural swarm of bees and an ominous white light seen in the distance. The people, however, are nothing out of the ordinary, in that they possess no inherent deformities or abnormalities. Aristocrat’s Quarters is a work in which the setting is real and the person unreal. The academic backdrop, comprised of scientific materials, represents unfeigned normalcy bound by logic. This is counteracted by a remarkably

unscientific entity, the woman with tentacles for legs. Jewel Heist Rats has a humorous and playful nonsensical setting, making it distinguishable from her other photographs. Notwithstanding the lascivious-looking tattoo-clad female wearing a black corset and silk pink boots, it has a certain innocent, cartoonish quality. Rats and thievery may be the subject, but childish absurdity is the dominant tone. Teagarden looks for inspiration in all forms of literature, “from prose to children’s classics,” as well as the works of Pop Surrealism. “Pop Surrealism is what generates the most energy, for me,” says Teagarden. “It generally has a great macabre undertone mixed with sex-glamour, which can be described as sinisterly sweet. The combination is a true modern hallmark of what art is right now.” 08

The Fabric

of Creation:

Guerra De La Paz Makes Sculptures Out of Clothes Until December 15 2008, the Main Library’s second floor exhibition space will be transformed by Polychrome Affinities, a groundbreaking exhibition showcasing, among others, the work of Guerra De La Paz. Established in 1996, Guerra de la Paz represents the artistic team of Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz. Working out of a studio in Miami, they have come to personify the art of experimentation, enlisting innovative techniques to create that which is both beautiful and provocative. Recently, they have been focused on collecting piles of unwanted clothing and using them to pursue their unique approach to sculpture construction. Clothing has a significant symbolic value. It is immediately and universally recognizable yet culturally and personally specific; it personifies the conflict of identity versus society. Its presence in figurative art being not at all uncommon – many art movements used it to signify class and social status – it continues to serve as iconographic evidence. In the case of Guerra De La Paz, however, clothing is but a means to an end, raw material that has been recycled to create a representation of something else entirely. And though the sculpture created is aesthetically beautiful, one cannot help but be fascinated by the process through which it is created. “We try to make our concept, or the imagery that we create, as familiar to the viewer as the material is to them,” says Alain Guerra, speaking from the artists’ studio in Miami. “We want the first impact to be our composite, as opposed to, ‘Hey, look, they used a lot of clothing.’ But I think the familiarity of the material plays a big part too.” Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz have worked in the same studio for over a decade. Located in Little Haiti amidst an anonymous sprawl of industrial properties just east of Second Avenue, there is no indication of its existence outside, no sign or plaque to identify

it as their studio. But inside one finds what one would expect – clothes. There are clothes in huge piles – on the floor, on tables, folded and layered on shelves. There is the distinct smell of dust, like the kind one might find in an attic, but it’s not overwhelming; the ceilings are high and allow for a comfortable atmosphere amidst the clutter. On a regular basis, the artists go to a nearby warehouse that ships clothing to the Caribbean and Russia and rummage through the large piles of discarded items. Other times they use what has been donated to them, or what they find amid the dealers in Little Haiti who specialize in hand-made clothing. Only the small garments are washed, and then only when it is absolutely necessary. “Otherwise, we’d be starting a laundry business,” says Neraldo de la Paz. The others they lay out in the sun to kill bacteria, but that’s it. The process of tearing apart the garments so they can be used as materials for the intended sculpture is long and arduous, as is the process by which garments are selected. Both artists approach the selection process with an attitude that is practical and somewhat metaphysical (for lack of a better word). “Sometimes when we’re selecting clothing we know exactly what we’re looking for – it can be toner, it

can be texture, it could be the color – but usually we always find something that is unexpected,” says Guerra. “We collect those too and eventually that dictates to us what it wants to become.”

“It goes through this cycle – it goes from retail to the trash, it changes hands. It embodies the energies of the people who wore it. It’s a little deeper to us than just textile.”

They talk about the time they found a woman’s prison uniform; at first being excited by it, and later unnerved. It had a “bad vibe,” they say, so it was rejected. They talk also about the many piles of army fatigues seen throughout the room, and once finding a note in one of the pockets. To them, the uniforms bear a unique individuality despite the identical color and design of each garment. “Most people don’t have names attached to their clothes, unless you have a grandmother who wrote your name on the back of your shirt like mine did,” says de la Paz. “We could probably go so far as to attach a face to the name,” says Guerra, performing what appears to be the common practice of continuing his partner’s thoughts.

“It’s also about mass consumption, and the disposability factor,” continues de la Paz. “It references the past. In clothing you can see what people wore – the patterns – and that goes back to fashion, but fashion for the mass consumption. What we were wearing back in the ‘80s is what people in Africa and Haiti are wearing today. Historically, it has a really interesting position, as to who’s using it when and why, what the logistics are sociologically.”

“The reason we use clothing – and not only clothing but used clothing – it’s clothing that’s destined for the landfill,” says Guerra.

Contemporary sculpture bears little resemblance to the traditional carved or cast figures. Much of that is due to the use of distinctive materials, as well as the introduction of color. The use of clothes by Guerra de la Paz is a continuation of sculpture’s ongoing expansion into nontraditional materials. And the Guerra de la Paz sculpture Rainbow, currently on view in the Polychrome Affinities exhibition, is a

noteworthy example of color in sculpture. Called “a rainbow you can touch��� by the artists, the piece uses assorted clothing, steel and hardware to form ascending arcs of purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. All of the colors are remarkably bright, a reflection on both Miami and the artwork’s childlike innocence. The decision to showcase their work at the Miami Library during Art Basel, as opposed to any of the more conventional venues, affirms that they are less inclined to partake in the art scene uproar. With the annual occurrence of Art Basel Miami and the ongoing expansion of art districts like Wynwood, the Miami art scene has become a pinnacle topic that cannot be ignored. But when asked about their relationship to this enduring phenomenon, both artists seemed indifferent to the subject. It’s likely their work will be viewed by more school children than art patrons. But, according to Guerra de la Paz, that’s just fine with them.

“We really try to make the art accessible to everyone and not just the art crowd. The art crowd has preconceived ideas, as opposed to school kids who have a pure reaction,” says de la Paz. “We see a reaction from kids that are just toddlers to adults who are at the prime of their life or at the end of their life. The reaction isn’t much different from child to adult, even though the adult has the context to understand whereas the child is acting more to the immediate.” “Our work is the antithesis to what the art world is about, which is very esoteric,” says Guerra. “Our work can be easily read by both people in the art world and outsiders who know absolutely nothing because people of all walks of life are familiar with the materials and they’re familiar with the images.”08 www.guerradelapaz.com.

KAIJU MONSTER

ART MEETS VINYL DESIGN

Kaiju (怪獣) is a Japanese word that means “strange beast,” but is often translated in English as “monster.” The most famous Kaiju is Godzilla, other well-known Kaiju include Mothra, Anguirus, Rodan, Gamera, and King Ghidorah. During the 1960’s, in Japan, toy vinyl figures of popular Japanese films such as Godzilla (a radioactive lizard) and Gamera (a giant flying turtle) became popular collectibles. Over the period of four decades the Kaiju has seen a dramatic rise in popularity, gaining it an international audience. The Kaiju and its influence on popular culture can be seen in a variety of artistic arenas from the “art toy” movement to modern couture as well as in the artworks of many “lowbrow” artists from around the world. During Art Basel Miami Beach 2008, the Kaiju show at ArtCenter/South Florida will bring the most exciting and subversive artists from Japan (East) and the United States (West) ever to be shown in a single exhibition. The exhibition will showcase the various Interpretations of Kaiju, in both Eastern and Western cultures. This exciting presentation aims to break new ground in the Kaiju art form, while at the same time, honoring its rich history. The exhibit includes many of the top artists, whose work is affiliated with the Lowbrow/Pop Surrealist movement, plus internationally acclaimed Japanese artists- making this show a rare occasion, bringing

together the best of the East’s and West’s interpretations Kaiju. The Kaiju Show is an exciting concept that taps into various emerging subcultures. For the last decade the Art Toy movement has gained a toehold in the US through specialized stores and boutiques. The lowbrow art/ pop surrealism genre has gained international recognition with artists like Mark Ryden, Shag, and Ron English. These are just a few of many artists who have become idols to fans of the movement. A special edition series, commemorative, Kaiju ceramic sculpture by Mark Nagata will be produced by Miles of Munk- Tiki, in collaboration with the Harold Golen Gallery for sale during the show. This highly collectable ceramic Kaiju sculpture will be limited to 25 and will elevate the traditional vinyl medium of the Kaiju to a more fine art level. Because of the highly

AMERICAN GORE:

MY MEETING WITH THE NATION’S PREMIER MAN OF LETTERS On November 17, literary icon Gore Vidal made his first appearance at the Miami Book Fair. An author of more than 20 novels, five plays, many screenplays, hundreds of essays and a memoir, his latest book, The Selected Essays of Gore Vidal, is collection of 21 essays chosen from among the 114 previously compiled in United States: Essays 1952-1992, plus three recent essays. Known never to shy away from controversy, Vidal has been an outspoken critic of nearly everything – from government to religion to academia to media – and at the age of 83 he stills has plenty of fight left in him.

It’s a hot day in the middle of November, the day Gore Vidal is scheduled to speak at the Miami Book Fair. I meet him at the Raleigh Hotel on Collins Avenue right in the heart of South Beach. This time of year, warm weather beckons hordes of people beachside. Outside, the environment is a bristling nerve of activity. Inside, the setting changes; past the line of trees that guard the front entrance, the backdrop transitions to a state of calm, low key luxury. Vidal is waiting in the lobby, seated in a wheel chair (the result of a recent hip injury) and accompanied by his assistant. Attired in a dark gray suit, he looks regal, natural within the opulent setting of the Raleigh Hotel. Everything about him, from his voice to his appearance, projects a rare, old-fashioned dignity. He is gracious – sometimes humorous – but the high-powered realities of the world he inhabits make it difficult to deal with him on equal terms. More than an author, Vidal is an icon of American aristocracy. Born at the West Point Academy Hospital in 1925, his father, Eugene Luther Vidal, was an all-American quarterback, airline entrepreneur and director of the Bureau of Air Commerce during the FDR administration. His mother, Nina Gore, daughter of Oklahoma Senator Thomas

P. Gore, was an actress and socialite. After divorcing Gene Vidal in 1935, she married Hugh D. Auchincloss, who later became the stepfather of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Vidal writes of his childhood in the memoir, Point to Point Navigation: “The children of the famous are somewhat different from the children of all the rest, including those of the merely rich…I could tell that I was not like the other children because of the questions that my teachers would ask me about my father and grandfather.” Reviewing Point to Point Navigation for New Criterion, Joe Rago describes Vidal as having “the droning hauteur of a patrician, born into every sort of privilege and with every sort of entrée, who at once professes a profound loathing for his class but never tires of declaring his station in life. And of course Vidal turns the same trick with America, pronouncing that he wants to rescue the country while remaining contemptuous of every facet of its existence.” A vocal critic of the Bush administration, Vidal has written three books on the subject: Imperial America (2004), Dreaming War (2003), and Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace (2002). His latest book, The Selected Essays of Gore Vidal, contains two essays extracted from these


36 | SYMPOSIUM 8

works: Black Tuesday (from Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace) and State of the Union, 2004 (from Imperial America). In the introduction, editor Jay Parini describes Vidal has having “revived the political pamphlet as a genre,” adding, “If his temper has grown short in recent times, one can hardly blame him, as in many ways his worst nightmares have come true under the regime of George W. Bush.” As a public figure, Vidal’s wit and intelligence are often overshadowed by his malicious persona. The most well known example of Vidal invectives appeared in a series of television debates with William F. Buckley, Jr. in August 1968. During the debates, Vidal called his opponent a fascist, a racist, an anti-Semite, and a closet homosexual, adding that Buckley’s ideas were responsible for the murder of Bobby Kennedy. And, as Parini suggests, Vidal’s demeanor has not softened with age but perhaps grown more malevolent. On November 4, the night of the presidential election, a visibly annoyed and hostile Vidal was interviewed via satellite from Los Angeles by BBC News anchor David Dimbleby. He chided Dimbleby with snide remarks, telling his presenter he had no idea who he was, scolding him for taking answers at face value and claiming to know “too much about the subject” of U.S. politics to be appearing on television. Dimbleby went red with embarrassment before bringing the interview to an early end. “Gore Vidal has often treated writing as a blood sport, and it’s heartening to see he has lost none of his appetite for pursuing enemies, real or perceived, like a game hunter addicted to sheer brutal entertainment of the chase,” writes journalist Andrew Gumbel. He and Vidal have recently been engaged in a bitter dispute over the article “Who’s America Now? Not Gore Vidal’s,” written by Gumbel for the new Spanish-language Vanity Fair. “From a personal point of view, of course, it’s a little less heartening when the target happens to be me.” As a writer, Vidal is more than worthy of the praise he receives. Parini says it best: “Vidal’s intelligence, with its intense wattage, shines brightly everywhere, and when the beam narrows onto a passage, the passage glows.” In person, however, much of the Vidal charm and charisma seems notably absent. There are subjects he simply will not discuss; others, he will not elaborate. On the subject of literature, he is remarkably apathetic. On the subject of politics, Vidal has a great deal to say, but his opinions are

one-sided and spiteful. On every subject, he is negative. During my meeting with Vidal, his diatribe on John McCain begins with a sarcastic utterance. “Oh, I love the hero,” he says. “He crashes his plane…everyone was warned that he was the world’s worst flyer…he wasn’t shot down. Every time he would open his mouth he would start telling lies. And the girl up there in Alaska would repeat them.” At this point, Vidal’s voice escalates to a high-pitched squeal as he breaks into his Sarah Palin impression. High-octave impressions are a common occurrence throughout the meeting. Discussing Bush, Vidal once again augments his voice to create a high-pitched impression. His Bush impression is different from the Palin voice, but – coming from an elderly man amid this opulent setting – both impressions are equally eerie. Without warning, he will loudly and enthusiastically start speaking in a Bush voice, loudly crying out, “I’m a wartime president! I’m a wartime president!” Other times, he will yell, “I’m commander-inchief! I’m commanderin-chief!” The American people “have no power,” he says. “They have no say in the governments of the country. They got out of the habit of being citizens. We got a lot of getrich-quick oil and gas men at the core of it.” I point out that voter turnout was at an all time high in the last two national elections. “Well, I wasn’t counting,” he says. “Certainly didn’t change anything. You’re taking for granted that what you read is correct.” I argue that we have a free press in the United States. “Nonsense,” he says. My response: the government cannot control the press. “But money can,” he says. I ask about alternative media outlets, like the internet. “I like the theory of it,” says Vidal, “but it hasn’t done anything.” On the subject of Barack Obama, Vidal is somewhat optimistic; however, he is sure to taint his optimism with doubts. “I hope he can do something,” he says. “I voted for him, and I think he’s wonderful. But I don’t really know him.” He adds: “Now that he got elected, I would be fascinated if he were allowed to serve. Republicans are very good at finding all sorts of good reasons for not letting people serve. He has a problem. He’s an intellectual in a country that hates it. Just forget racism, it’s intellectuals that they really don’t like.” 08

/ART SUPERNOVA Conceived as “an alternative form of gallery presentation in an art fair context,” Art Supernova is making its second appearance at Art Basel Miami Beach in 2008. Presenting recent works by emerging artists, Art Supernova arranges 20 galleries in an attempt to form “an experimental group show.” Instead of each gallery having its own separate booth, the exhibitors in Art Supernova have interconnected exhibition spaces and a common stage area. In these shared facilities they present works on paper, videos, performances, artist files, books, and catalogs. AB/08

/ART KABINETT This year’s Art Kabinett program promises to be an exciting mix of tightly focused exhibitions within the art show, including thematic group exhibition and solo shows from both emerging artists and historical figures. The Selection Committee has chosen 17 galleries to present Art Kabinetts – separate sections within the booths of the Art Galleries sector, providing a space to investigate single artists’ works or thematic group exhibitions in greater detail and spotlighting the skills of the exhibition curators. The 17 projects in this sector of the show feature a wide array of artists, ranging from young emerging artists such as Jonas Lipps and Tomasz Kowalski to historical figures like Meret Oppenheim, Francis Picabia, Robert Smithson and Marcel Duchamp. Group shows include exhibitions titled “Text and Image in 20th- Century Art” and “Kusama and Her Contemporaries.” AB/08

/ART PROJECTS Art Projects features works by internationally renowned artists, selected from proposals by the galleries of Art Basel Miami Beach and installed in the outdoor public spaces of Miami Beach. These works engage directly with the spectator, interrupting the daily routine of passersby in poetic, alienating, and surprising ways.

Marks: Katharina Fritsch St. Katharina and 2nd Photo (Ivy), 2006/07 Polyester, acrylic, and oil-based ink and acrylic on plastic panel, sculpture: 66x15x13 inches, 168x38x33 cm, silkscreen: 110.25x157.5 inches, 280x400 cm Copright © 2008 for the reproduced works by Katharina Fritsch: ProLitteris Zurich

For the first time, most of Art Projects will be presented in a single site: Lummus Park, on Ocean Drive between 10th and 14th Street; one will be on view at Island Gardens, Watson Island, 888 MacArthur Causeway. Displayed in the public space of Miami Beach, this segment of Art Basel Miami positions art in the urban context and encourages participation by the general public. Most of the eight works are site-specific and commissioned for Art Basel Miami Beach, including Ai Weiwei’s one hundred blue shimmering ceramic bubbles, spread over an area of 600 square meters at Island Gardens and Ana Linnermann’s spinning palm tree at Lummus Park. Performance art in the public space will play a key role in this year’s Art Projects: Dora Garcia will recite surreal texts in fake guided tours carried out near the Art Projects. Jiří Kovanda will question the role and place of an individual in Miami, arranging poetic interventions on the streets near Lummus Park. AB/08

/ART BASEL CONVERSATIONS Since 2004 Art Basel Conversations has been a forum that encourages a lively exchange of ideas through a series of platform discussions. Conversations can range from single artists exploring their practice to larger panels that include the leading players within regional scenes and various fields of artistic activity. Presenting their current and upcoming projects, reporting on their experiences and commenting on the challenges they face, these speakers provide an insider’s view and open up the opportunity for dynamic and inspiring dialog.

After each Art Basel Conversation, there is time allotted for the audience to approach the panel in a more informal fashion. The Art Basel Conversations forum promises to be intellectually exciting in 2008, as panelists include such renowned artists, collectors, curators, and critics as Chuck Close, Vik Muniz, Richard Flood, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Thelma Golden, Glenn Ligon, Billy Al Bengston, and Paul Schimmel, to name only a few. Panel topics include: “The Future of the Museum: Africa, America and the World,” “Public/Private: The Artist as Philanthropist” and Artistic Production: Los Angeles, an Alternate Art World Model?” AB/08

/SPONSORS & PARTNERS Art Basel Miami Beach has the support of many sponsors and partners. Among them are the world-renowned jeweler Cartier, which supports Art Basel Miami Beach as Associate Sponsor and will be present both with the Cartier Dôme in the Botanical Gardens and in the Art Collectors Lounge. NetJets, the first, largest and most experienced fractional aircraft ownership company in the world, continues its support for Art Basel Miami Beach with a large private lounge in the Art Collectors Lounge. Another Associate Sponsor is AXA Art, the globally active specialty art and collectibles insurance company, which will again provide multi-lingual guided tours at Art Basel Miami Beach. Art Basel Miami Beach has, as its most significant sponsor, the Swiss banking giant UBS. The firm, which served as a sponsor of Art Basel in Switzerland for the pat 15 years, has been the primary source of funding for Art Basel Miami Beach since its inception. “UBS is proud of our longstanding relationship with Art Basel and Art Basel Miami Beach and we are pleased to renew a multi-year partnership as the main sponsor of both art shows,” says Robert Wolf, Chairman and CEO, UBS Group Americas. “Supporting the arts is ingrained in our corporate culture and through these cultural partnerships we are committed to making the arts accessible to our clients, our employees, and the broader community.” Formed in the 1998 merger of Union Bank of Switzerland and Swiss Banking Corp., UBS is one of the world’s largest and most prestigious banks. In the weeks leading up to Art Basel Miami Beach, however, it has been burdened by both legal and financial concerns. In June, UBS was charged with a civil Internal Revenue Service summons, authorized by a Fort Lauderdale federal judge, ordering the bank to supply information on U.S. clients who have undisclosed offshore accounts. UBS itself has not been charged with any crime. Several months later – in October – the bank, hit hard by the global financial crisis, applied for a $60 million government bailout. The following month – in November, the month before Art Basel Miami Beach – Daniel Zuberbuehler of the Swiss Banking Commission said UBS might need more government aid to survive the financial crisis.

8 SYMPOSIUM | 57

/ART MARKET ECONOMY The weak economy has resulted in a recent decline in art market sales, suggesting some collectors will be less likely to make large purchases at this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach. Prior to the latest economic downturn, the art market had been booming. In 2007, auction and private sales at the two leading auction houses, Sotheby’s and Christie’s International, totaled $12.5 billion, nearly double the prior year. This year, however, most notably in the past few months, sales have been dwindling. At London’s Frieze Art Fair in October, auctions of contemporary art held at Sotheby’s and Christie’s generated less money than predicted; many works remained unsold. Christie’s contemporary art sale in New York on November 12 generated $113.6 million, half of the low presale estimate; nearly a third of the 75 lots offered went unsold. The night before, the contemporary sale at Sotheby’s New York generated $125 million for the night, far below the low estimate of $202 million; almost a third of the 64 pieces offered did not sell.

Last month, Sotheby’s reported third quarter revenues of $76 million (a $9.1 million or 11 percent decrease over the prior third quarter) and a net loss of $46.2 million. Bill Ruprecht, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sotheby’s responded: “It is hardly surprising that our business is not immune from the unprecedented global economic turbulence which has impacted so many other businesses. Our auctions this autumn were assembled over the summer when the world was a very different place and predictably we are now seeing a softening in a number of markets, particularly where there has been a big price appreciation. There is a new reality and consignors will need to adjust their expectations accordingly.” Co-Directors Marc Alain Spiegler and Annette Schönholzer are optimistic about the 2008 Art Basel Miami Beach. Regardless of an uncertain market, over 200 galleries will show their best work and hope for high sales. In their opinion, the economy may very well result in more reasonable prices for art, which has the potential to attract more serious collectors. “It’s obviously more of a buyer’s market,” says Spiegler. “I have been talking to a lot of collectors. They feel it’s a better time to buy art.”

According to Spiegler, gallery owners and directors know how to survive the financial crisis. “I think most people who run galleries are by nature optimists,” he says. “Most of the people who are running the kinds of galleries we deal with have been through ups and downs of the economy. People will find a way.” AB/08

/ART BASEL’S NEW DIRECTION In January 2008, Basel parent company Messe Schweiz chose Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, Annette Schönholzer and Marc Spiegler to replace former Director Samuel Keller. The resignation of Cay Sophie Rabinowitz in April left Schönholzer and Spiegler solely responsible for directing this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach. Messe Schweiz based its decisions on the recommendations of an Appointment Committee headed by Dr. Cyrill Häring, Chairman of the Art Basel Appeals Commission. The international Appointment Committee began inviting and evaluating candidates at the beginning of 2007.

CADILLAC PALACE THEATRE > CHICAGO

The Palace Theatre opened at the corner of Randolph and LaSalle Streets in Chicago on October 4, 1926. The theatre’s interior featured a splendor previously unseen in Chicago - a breathtaking vision inspired by the palaces of Fontainebleau and Versailles. The theatre’s distinctive characteristics included a lobby richly appointed in huge, decorative mirrors and breche violet and white marble, which swept majestically through a succession of lobbies and foyers; great wall surfaces enhanced with gold leaf and wood decorations; and 2,500 plush, roomy seats.
