Beatrix Ruf Named Director of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 12:49

rufAmsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum, currently home to exhibitions of the work of Marcel Wanders and Jeff Wall (and book your flights now for September when the Marlene Dumas retrospective will occupy a circuit of 15 rooms), has found a new director in Beatrix Ruf (pictured), the current director of the Kunsthalle Zürich. She succeeds Ann Goldstein, who was artistic director at the Stedelijk for the past four years, and will jointly lead the museum with managing director Karin van Gilst. Ruf will start her involvement with the museum immediately and take up her new role on a full-time basis in November.

As director of the Kunsthalle Zürich since 2001, Ruf initiated and oversaw the completion of an extensive reconstruction and expansion, commissioned numerous installations, and initiated projects such as the survey exhibitions of Yang Fudong and Ian Wallace, among others. In 2006, she was the curator of the successful third edition of the Tate Triennial in London. “I feel very honored, and am very moved, to be entrusted with the opportunity to be director of the Stedelijk Museum and to lead its extraordinary exhibition history and its collection into the future, together with the entire Stedelijk team,” said Ruff in a statement announcing her appointment. “Its courageous and outstanding contemporary—as well as art historical—exhibitions and world-class collection of modern and contemporary art and design were always a beacon and example in my own professional thinking and in numerous discussions with artists and colleagues. The Stedelijk Museum is a museum that shows us how to live in the present and how the future can be built on tradition.”

Quote of Note | Lorin Stein

Mon, 04/07/2014 - 13:55

spring 14 issue“We don’t have pressure to publish anything, or to satisfy a million subscribers. We have the luxury of being able to follow our own sensibility, wherever it takes us, at whatever length, with whatever kind of content. We can publish things that are risqué, or would put some people off. Until recently a clothing chain was carrying the Review. They complained that there was too much nudity in our last issue; they said they trusted that it would never happen again. We sent them the proof for the next issue, which sure enough had some nude photos from Francesca Woodman and they cancelled their order forever. And no one shed a tear. That’s a luxury not every magazine has.”

-Lorin Stein, editor of The Paris Review, in an interview with Svbscription.

Five Things We Learned This Week: Robert Capa Illustrated, Black Toothbrushes, and More

Fri, 04/04/2014 - 12:23

• A new book by illustrator Dominique Bertail and writer Jean-David Morvan reimagines Robert Capa‘s iconic 1944 photo of Omaha Beach: as a (French) comic strip with a hint of Doonesbury. Watch Bertail illustrate the cover in the video above.

• Pentagram’s Abbott Miller and team are behind the fresh look of Sotheby’s, which extends from the 270-year-old auction house’s sharp new workmark (good riddance, strange Gill Sans hybrid! Hello, Mercury!), to the redesigned website, catalogues, magazine, and more.

Paul Cocksedge is again looking to Kickstarter to fund.

Robert Fabricant of Frog Design is teaming with Cliff Kuang of Wired to pen User Friendly: How the Hidden Rules of Design Are Changing the Way We Live, Work, and Play. The two have inked a deal with Farrar, Straus to publish the book about “how user experience design will rule the coming decade, just as technology ruled the last; and a look at the myriad ways in which designers are reshaping our behavior, in realms ranging from healthcare and banking, to dating, driving and voting,” according to Publishers Marketplace.

• All the cool kids have black toothbrushes from Japan. Gets yours here.

Daniel Arsham Rocks (and Minerals)

Thu, 04/03/2014 - 12:48

Daniel Arsham has a knack for transforming familiar objects into fossils of the future: petrified payphones, eroded basketballs, a calcified McDonalds sign. His latest solo exhibition, “Kick the Tires and Light the Fires,” opens Saturday at OHWOW in Los Angeles–and then it’s onto Paris for a summertime show at Perrotin–but in the meantime, his Steel Eroded Hasselblad Camera (2014, pictured above) is now up for grabs in the MTV RE:DEFINE Auction on Paddle8.

Judith Dolkart Named Director of Addison Gallery of American Art; Drawing Center Appoints Executive Editor

Wed, 04/02/2014 - 12:39

dolkartSpring has—finally, allegedly—sprung in the land of polar vortices and cultural institutions are in the mood for hiring. The Addison Gallery of American Art, located on the Andover, Massachusetts campus of Phillips Academy, has found its new director in Judith Dolkart (pictured), who currently serves as deputy director of art and archival collections and chief curator at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia. She’ll begin in her new role at Andover in July, succeeding Brian Allen, who last summer joined the New-York Historical Society as vice president and museum director.

Also making a move is New York-based arts writer and editor Margaret Sundell. The Drawing Center has appointed her to the post of executive editor of the Drawing Papers. Her duties will include “recruiting writers, commissioning essays, editing the Drawing Papers, and maintaining the highest standards for all published institutional texts,” according to a statement released yesterday by the Soho institution.

Wed, 04/02/2014 - 11:06

Rushing water, DNA helices, stop-motion footage of a city at night. Put ‘em together and what have you got? A generic brand video. Royalty-free stock footage purveyor Dissolve.com seized upon the formula outlined by Kendra Eash in a recent piece for McSweeney’s Internet Tendency and brought it to life in this amusing short, made entirely with stock footage and narrated with an avuncular twang by Dallas McClain.

MoMA Collaborates with Uniqlo on Pollock Tees, Warhol Totes, and More

Tue, 04/01/2014 - 21:22

moma_uniqlo

Cover yourself in Jackson Pollock‘s inky drips, schlep your stuff under the cover of Warholian camouflage, and wear the creative feats of Keith Haring on your feet—all for less than the price of admission to New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The institution has teamed up with Japanese fast-fashion chain Uniqlo on a line of wearables printed with images from works in the MoMA collection, including details from two of Pollock’s 1950 works on paper that have been transposed to cotton t-shirts, a tote bag covered in a collage of Basquiat drawings, and a bandanna featuring Warhol’s tomato-red can of Campbell’s soup from 1962. The Uniqlo at MoMA collection is now available at the MoMA Store. Nothing is over $20.
