The Wallace Gallery at Columbia U. has a small show of works by Edward Koren, one of the cartoonists at The New Yorker. Interesting to see his evolution - as a student at CU, Koren worked on the humor magazine and they include a small sampling of his work. It's a fun show, guaranteed to make you laugh a bit. Closes next week.

This is on the "must do" list :

Expressionismus & Expressionismi: Berlin-Munich, 1905-1920. Au Pinacothèque de Paris. Thru Mars 2012.

The curatorial argument is clearly worded and well illustrated by supporting works: German Expressionism comprises two opposed but not conflicting trends — the intellectual Der Blaue Reiter and the emotional Die Brücke. They shared the same expressive pathos and colorful distorted representations, and believed in the same intuitive creativity. Die Brücke (1905-13) artists (Nolde, Kirchner, Schmidt-Rottluff, Pechstein and Otto Müller) were figurative and lyrical. Decades later, some would be dismissed as degenerate by the Nazi regime. The members of Der Blaue Reiter (1911-14) — Kandinsky, Münter, Jawlensky, Macke and Campendonk — favored abstraction and used color to amplify movement. As years went by, their styles became harder to differentiate and they ended under the same Expressionist label.

An explanation of the title.

And you better rush out the door this instant if you want to see this because you have less than 6 hours to go:

Paris Photo. Au Grand Palais.

Many of the galleries in St Germain des Pres and elsewhere are also sporting photographic exhibits to leverage off the large crowds who are here to see Paris Photo.

If you have an interest in photography, this is when and where that world meets.



Of course, we have already talked about these exhibitions in Paris:

Pompéi - un art de vivre. Musée Maillol.

and

un Vernissage de Julian Schnabel à Paris .

and

Yayoi Kusama. Centre Pompidou.

and

Edvard Munch. Centre Pompidou.

And you do know that it's La Saison de Cezanne ( © Chambo) right now here in Paris, right ?

If you don't and you are interested, check out "Cézanne et Paris" au Musée du Lux et "Matisse, Cézanne, Picasso ... L'Aventure des Stein" au Grand Palais.

Don't get jealous, you NY-ers, you'll get your chance with that last one in early 2012.

And SF-ers, you already had your chance earlier this year.

"L'Aventure des Stein" must be seen as it is a very interesting exhibition.

"Cézanne et Paris" was less so for me, but who doesn't enjoy seeing rooms full of Cézannes. Not his best stuff though. Not the most thoughtful exhibition in my opinion. Nevetheless, a good excuse to see parts of Cézanne's oeuvre that isn't all that well known.

Then, of course, there always is the Musée d'Orsay if you are in need of a fix.

If you ever find yourself in northern Germany, the Nolde house in Seebüll is very much worth a detour. Of course Munich (and Murnau) for the Blue Rider stuff...

I'm going to see this tomorrow with a friend: Carlo Mollino, Italian Modernist (looks like fun, but mainly because they have a parent and baby tour...)

I didn't know about that -- I am a huge fan of Nolde.

In London we have a big Richter exhibit at Tate Modern.

A's mom grew up in that area, I think she knew Nolde's family vaguely. Do you know of Deutschstunde (The German Lesson) by Siegfried Lenz? It's a good book, and the artist in the story is very clearly based on Nolde. I think Lenz is from the area as well.

Looking around the Haus der Kunst website a bit, I just realized they are continuing to show videos in the bomb shelter under the building. For anyone coming to Munich, this is worth seeing, for the venue as much as for the art.

I saw a great video installation there by a columbian artist -- he does screen print head shots of people who were "disappeared", shakes the ink from the print over a basin of water so the perfect image shows up on the surface of the water, and then pulls the plug. The video is an image of the person's face that slowly breaks apart and washes away. This was projected onto the floor of showers in the air-raid shelter under the building. Hard to describe without sounding kind of cheesy, but the effect, in that environment especially, was creepy as hell.

I will add the Lenz book to my reading list: translated by the people who did the first English edition of Man Without Qualities.

I managed to catch up with NYC gallery going the last few days: a quite large Braque show, new paintings by Howard Hodgkin, works from Robert Rauschenberg's private collection - all on the Upper East Side; some new collages by John Ashbery at Tibor de Nagy. I wanted to see late Picabia at Michael Werner, but the place appeared to be closed for no apparent reason.

I still haven't formulated a plan to see De Kooning in relative peace and quiet.

Saw the dekooning again last week and it wasn't as crazy. Still love it. The newish instillation of the permanent collection is pretty wonderful too.

Saw a few things in Chelsea, with Neo Rauch at Zwirner and the history of the lightbulb at Pace being the highlights. The Nan Goldin show on 22nd st. is not worth seeing IMHO.

While temporising about visiting DeKooning, I made the rounds of some smaller shows.

For comments on works from Rauschenberg's private collection, new paintings by Howard Hodkgin and new collages by John Ashbery, and the Braque retrospective at Acquarella, may I recommend the Pink Pig?

Will I be able to get out of my office early enough this afternoon to see the Fluxus exhibition at NYU?

The suspense is killing me.

Picasso's drawings at the Frick; was pretty crowded on Fri afternoon but so worth seeing.

There's an art exhibition coming up in Winnipeg--American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell.

Should I bother? I've never been a fan of Norman Rockwell and have never understood his popularity. Could someone enlighten me so I could go to the exhibition and perhaps appreciate what I'm seeing/

I have an annoying backlog of reviews to post at the Pink Pig, and I need to get them up before the shows close. I just started with a twofer: Larry Rivers and Lucien Freud.
