This week: the Artwork Basel and UBS World Artwork Market Report 2022 is out—is the market’s restoration pretty much as good because it sounds? We speak to Melanie Gerlis, artwork market columnist for The Artwork Newspaper and the Monetary Occasions, in regards to the sixth version of the market report, what the headline figures inform us and what we will learn between the strains.
Because the exhibition Hideouts: The Structure of Survival, opens on the Zacheta Nationwide Gallery of Artwork in Warsaw—specializing in the areas in Poland and Ukraine that have been utilized by Holocaust survivors to flee Nazi persecution—we speak to the artist behind it, Natalia Romik. Although long-planned, the present has gained a troubling topicality because the Russian invasion and destruction of Ukraine continues.
And on this episode’s Work of the Week, coinciding with the a hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Piet Mondrian’s delivery, we focus on his portray Victory Boogie Woogie (1942-44). Caro Verbeek, the co-curator of Mondrian Strikes, an exhibition opening this week on the Kunstmuseum den Haag within the Hague, the Netherlands, tells us in regards to the feverish creation and unfinished nature of the Dutch artist’s last work.
