Боб Дайлан Фанаты, бронируйте билеты в МИАМИ. On November 30, the week of Art Basel Miami Beach, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University will unveil «Ретроспектива,” a survey of Dylan’s artwork that premiered at the Modern Art Museum Shanghai in 2019. The Associated Press reports that the show will include more than 120 paintings, drawings, and sculptures by the artist, musician, writer, Nobel Prize winner, and продавец виски. На выставке также будут представлены экспозиции о его музыкальных и литературных достижениях. Until the pandemic hit, Dylan had been on the so-called Never Ending Tour—a series of more than 3,000 shows that he began in 1988. Возможно, прекращение концертов дало больше времени для творчества?

ART GENSLER, THE ARCHITECT AND ENTREPRENEUR WHO founded what is now the largest design company in the world, died on Monday in Mill Valley, California, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Ему было 85 лет. Gensler started his namesake firm in 1965 in San Francisco with his wife, Drue Gensler, and an associate, James Follett. It now has 50 locations around the world, Archinect reports. Its work—in urban design, architecture, interiors, and more—has included everything from the Shanghai Tower‘s design to collaborations with other architects on buildings for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (by Renzo Piano) and the New Museum (by SANAA) in New York. Gensler was a board member at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. “Through his work, leadership, and efforts to advance the profession,” the firm said in a statement, “Art touched the lives of thousands of people and communities.”


Some scholars are voicing disapproval of Italy’s plan to spend some $18 million to create a floor for the Colosseum in Rome, saying that it will disrupt views of its underground spaces. «Колизей — это последнее, на что я бы подумал потратить деньги», — сказал один из искусствоведов. [The Art Newspaper]

The Black Obsidian Sound System collective, which was just nominated for the Turner Prize, which is organized by Tate, slammed the museum and the award in a statement. «Срочность, с которой нас попросили принять участие, выступить и доставить, демонстрирует добывающую и эксплуататорскую практику в культуре призов и, в более широком смысле, во всей индустрии», — говорится в заявлении. [ArtReview]

AFTER A 17-YEAR BREAK, BROOD X CICADAS ARE ARRIVING, to the anguish of many humans. Они шумные и неприятные на вид, говорят некоторые. “My advice is just look at them in Chinese art,” the Smithsonian curator Jan Stuart told NPR, which wisely found the art angle on the insect invasion. Цикады уже давно фигурируют в искусстве и поэзии Китая, и они обладают мощным символическим весом, будучи связанными с аристократией. Stuart notes that “they eat only they purest of pure things, tree sap.” [NPR]
