Portrait of an Artist: Liu Dan

Vanity Fair

October 15, 2018

In the late 1960s, during the Cultural Revolution in China, a friend showed Liu Dan a selection of Western photography from the pages of a confiscated book and, mesmerized, he scrupulously copied the reproductions of Renaissance-era drawings. He had not yet received any formal training. Over 50 years later, Liu Dan is known internationally for his fastidiously rendered monochrome ink paintings, some of which draw upon compositional elements of the European masters whilst engaging a traditional Chinese form.

Lee Krasner's Mural Studies on View at Kasmin Gallery in Chelsea

East Hampton Star

October 11, 2018

Inhabiting a time and place rich in artistic crosscurrents and cross-pollination, Lee Krasner apparently always sought a unique vision, but one distilled from the radical advances in abstraction of her avant-garde peers and predecessors. Since picking up representation of the Springs artist’s estate from the Robert Miller Gallery, which ended its four-decade run with a show of her work, the Kasmin Gallery in Chelsea has continued the tradition of presenting Krasner’s works in a revelatory and scholarly way.

Kasmin’s New Gallery and Rooftop Sculpture Garden Mark a New Era

Architectural Digest

October 11, 2018

Kasmin's new gallery on 27th street was so new that the air smelled of fresh paint—though that could be due to the recently installed works for a new show by Walton Ford. "I finished that one there just yesterday!" the artist tells AD, pointing to his watercolor of a lion perched in a valley. Ford's new body of work will inaugurate the new gallery, which marks Kasmin's fourth location in West Chelsea. The new space, designed by Markus Dochantschi of studioMDA, is Kasmin's most ambitious project to date, both in terms of programming and scale. With a rooftop sculpture garden—the first of its kind in New York, and possibly, anywhere—that allows for new programming, ample daylight and greater curatorial ambitions, the space helps to welcome in a new era for the gallery.

Standing just outside the shadows of Zaha Hadid’s futuristic condo building, 520 West 28th Street, and the High Line is the latest addition to New York’s Chelsea district – a newly built fourth gallery space for the art dealer Paul Kasmin. Designed by Markus Dochantschi of studioMDA, a longtime collaborator of Kasmin’s, the new gallery features a column-free exhibition space punctuated by 28 skylights. It’s topped by a rooftop sculpture garden armed with a rotating exhibition programme that is also visible to the High Line’s six million visitors around the year.

Back in May 6sqft reported on plans for the 15 new gallery spaces in the works next to the Zaha Hadid-designed condo at 520 West 28th Street along the High Line, with the Paul Kasmin Gallery to anchor the project, which will expand into a 5,000-square-foot space with a sculpture garden designed by Future Green on its roof. With the official opening of the new building and inaugural exhibitions of works by Walton Ford and Joel Shapiro come new photos of the gallery and of the sculpture garden being installed.

Kasmin Gallery inaugurates its new flagship Chelsea gallery with a new body of paintings by Walton Ford. The series of large-scale watercolors is the result of more than 18 years of research by the artist into the Barbary lion, a longtime source of cultural fascination. The Barbary lion was painted by Delacroix and was also the type featured for Hollywood studio MGM’s famous signature roaring introduction to its films. (The gallery also opens its new outdoor sculpture garden, viewable from the High Line, with three large-scale works by Joel Shapiro.)

Review of Lee Krasner: Mural Studies

The Brooklyn Rail

October 3, 2018

Eight gouache studies from 1940 for a proposed mural mark the second exhibition of Lee Krasner’s work at Paul Kasmin since it began representing the Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s estate in 2016. There is no record for which space Krasner intended these works, but the evidence suggests Krasner had a specific location in mind given the two rectangular gaps—openings to accommodate window or door frames—that appear in the same positions along the bottom edge of each study. Krasner had taken over a WPA mural project begun by de Kooning in 1937.

Walton Ford Delves Into His Recent Lion Obsession at Paul Kasmin

"The more preparation I take the better it goes. When I was a student at Rhode Island School of design, I spent my senior year in Rome. My whole life changed over there. I saw frescoes like Giotto’s cycle at St Francis cathedral. The frescoes of tell his life in a comic strip form. They’re big life size figures. I thought I’d never seen anything so beautiful. Fresco is one of those unforgiving mediums where they needed to do very careful drawings first and transfer the drawings to the plaster while it is still wet. There’s very little room for error." 

Review of Brancusi & Duchamp: The Art of Dialogue

The Brooklyn Rail

October 3, 2018

It would be difficult to come up with a more challenging duo than this one. The exhibition is packed with sculptures, photographs, objects, films, little magazines—nothing is lacking—but we could just stop where it starts: with those two gorgeous faces of Brancusi and Duchamp by Man Ray, from 1920 and 1934, preceded by a sweater-clad Brancusi rarely seen. Here we are given the proper spin to this remarkable dialogue.

In May, Paul Kasmin Gallery of New York announced that it would begin representing the estate of Stuart Davis worldwide. This month, some 25 large-scale black and white works by the artist go on view at the gallery's Chelsea space. "Lines Thicken: Stuart Davis in Black & White," which opens on September 13, marks the first collaboration between the international dealer and Davis' estate, which is run by his only child, Earl Davis.

Navarro’s light works were highly visible throughout the fair: Kasmin (the artist’s New York gallery) presented his word-repeating, concrete poetry piece Back to Square One (2017) on the outer wall of its booth, and Metal Electric Chair (2017), a riff of Gerrit Rietveld’s celebrated Red Blue Chair, and his series of neon and mirrored water towers, This Land Is Your Land (2014), were on view in the fair’s In Situ section for public sculptures, located both inside and outside of the exhibition hall.

With 135 exhibits to hit, you’ll never fully explore Expo Chicago, the city’s signature art fair, which runs September 27 to 30 at Navy Pier. But here are three don’t-miss attractions—Infinity chamber: Chilean Iván Navarro’s water-tower-shaped sculptures are eight feet tall but appear to extend forever, thanks to a crafty system of mirrors and neon lights. They’ll be easy to find, they’re right at Navy Pier’s entrance.

Adjacent to this deceptive design is Muro, a brick wall which leads the way for the wide range of sculptures which are spread throughout the exhibition hall. This massive block was made by Bosco Sodi, who describes his creative process as “controlled chaos”, often utilizing raw materials and vivid pigments. His name emerges again a little further into the fair at Kasmin Gallery’s booth, which includes one of his famous tower-like pieces made of clay cubes.

At Chelsea dealer Paul Kasmin’s stand, David Wiseman’s stellar design is juxtaposed with blue-chip paintings and sculpture by Robert Indiana, Morris Lewis, and Stuart Davis. Wiseman, whom Peter Marino enlisted to create site-specific installations for his Dior boutiques from Shanghai to New York, stands his ground against the big-name company.

Two new art galleries join Zaha Hadid’s condo building in New York City

For Kasmin’s fourth show space in the neighborhood, Markus Dochantschi, founder of studioMDA and former architect at ZHA, envisioned a column-free, 3,000-square-foot gallery with a boxy, angled exterior featuring white concrete and a subtle wood texture. Inside, large-scale sculptures can fit smoothly in between the 22-foot-high walls and below a coffered ceiling with 28 individual skylights that diffuse natural light into the space below. This super-waffle grid also creates a pattern for the building’s rooftop sculpture garden, with a landscape designed by Future Green Studio. Visible from the High Line, it has an undulating form that allows plants to be set deep within the soil.
