Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The London Mastaba

"This magic force of how the Mastaba reacts to the sun and the light is always in some ways strange to the landscape and in some ways extremely attractive to the landscape," Christo

"I like what's real. I love the heat and air, wet and cold. I'm not very interested in the clinical space of the gallery," Christo 

"I am not a painter, a sculptor, nor an architect. I try to mix things. I'm talking to people who have not the slightest idea what art is, who are not interested in art. I enjoy that adventure," Christo

Kehinde Wiley

Kehinde Wiley (American, b. 1977). Wiley has gained acclaim for his heroic portraits which address the image and status of young African-American men and women in contemporary culture. "Wiley's signature portraits of everyday men and women riff on specific paintings by Old Masters, replacing the European aristocrats depicted in those paintings with contemporary black subjects, drawing attention to the absence of African Americans from historical and cultural narratives." Wiley's portrait of Obama is a perfect symbol of his unique and modern presidency.

Red Desert / Il Deserto Rosso

It would be hard to overstate Michelangelo Antonioni’s influence on postwar cinema, architecture and design, fashion, and literature, even on modern conceptions of the intellectual and the erotic. Antonioni (1912–2007), whose fascination with mediated reality only deepened over time, was a restless experimenter with composition, camera movement, cutting, and storytelling.

Antonioni’s first color film Red Desert is an audiovisual tour de force. Hope you could have the chance to see it. It is like Rothko in cinema....

John Evans / Time & Place

Don't miss John Evan's exhibition Time & Place at Gallery Henoch, on view until October 28th, 2017. Evans offers what seem to be requiems for less frantic, more easygoing times. His paintings are poetic and they bring pleasure to be observed. To quote Evans: " I visualize the world as a series of collages made of natural forms and concrete structures. In these paintings, I take apart each image and re-image the part". Enjoy!
