CYNTHIA-REEVES' strong performance at this weekend's inaugural Art13 London Fair received accolades in industry press, with solid sales to European and Asian collectors. New England-based artists Sarah Amos and George Sherwood were among those widely sought-after in their respective media and unique visionary thesis, along with Chinese minimalist painter, Shen Chen, and Conceal Project watercolor painter, Dawn Black.
Amos' artwork was featured in the U.S. edition of the Wall Street Journal on March 2. Other select artists featured at Art 13 London included Canadian printmaker Catherine Farish and American sculptor Jonathan Prince, whose geometric stainless steel outdoor sculpture, G2V, remains on public view at the Dag Hammerskjold Plaza in New York City through April 2013.
Among the near 25,000 attendees at Art13 London were noted collectors and institutions, including: Sir Nicholas Serota, Tate Museum; Charles Saumarez Smith, The Royal Academy; Julie Peyton Jones, Serpentine Gallery; Charles Saatchi, and Don and Mera Rubell, among others.
CYNTHIA-REEVES will augment its international presence in 2013 - 2014.
The gallery's fair calendar for 2013 will be updated in April.
Daniel Kohn Commission Underway at Broad Institute MIT / Harvard
Daniel Kohn has begun a 10-month, seven-floor installation of his experimental work, Instance of a Dataset, commissioned by the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This gradually unfolding public piece is a visual manifestation of a cross-disciplinary inquiry into the intersection of art and science, the result of Kohn's long-term collaboration with Broad scientists.
Based on a dataset of thousands of digitized watercolors, the artwork is comprised of 1,572 discrete tiles exhibited across seven floors. On each floor, the tiles form uniquely patterned grid assemblies. Since the first assemblies were installed in October, Kohn has revisited his artwork monthly to expand, transform, and reconfigure the piece. This monthly improvisational process will continue through June, with tiles being moved and added until each grid is complete. Inspired by and reflective of genomic experimentation, the piece is a working hypothesis that explores and echoes the work being conducted at the Broad, and in the broader field of genomic science.
