Wed, 29 Dec 2010 14:40:44 GMT
ARTINFO - MoMA PS1's Young Architects Program will get some foreign assistance next year when choosing the winning firm to design the Long Island City museum's signature summer courtyard — namely from MAXXI, Rome's new contemporary art center, which will join forces with its New York counterpart. That museum, which opened this year in an acclaimed Zaha Hadid building, will send representatives to join MoMA and PS1 curators in choosing the winner this February, and an additional architectural installation will be selected for MAXXI as well, the New York Times reports.

An Eccentric Collector's "Unmuseum" Brings Carnal Art, and Maybe Orgies, to Tasmania (ARTINFO)

ARTINFO - Australian multimillionaire David Walsh has never been one to do things conventionally. He dropped out of college, made his fortune by gambling (he has a reputation as a card-counter), developed a computer program for predicting the outcomes of horse races, and amassed a formidable art collection along the way. The 49-year-old Walsh once irked the National Gallery of Victoria by outbidding the museum for a painting by Australian artist John Brack, "The Bar," at Sotheby's, paying $2.27 million for the 1954 work. Three years later, Walsh sold the piece to the museum for the same price he paid for it. He was less interested in supporting existing arts institutions, it turns out, than in creating his own.

Banksy Says His Movie "Exit Through the Gift Shop" Is All True (ARTINFO)
Wed, 29 Dec 2010 14:40:06 GMT
ARTINFO - In the age of snide mockumentaries and reality-bending, pseudo-fictive films like "Catfish," it is hard to know what to believe on the silver screen. "Exit Through the Gift Shop," the movie by British street artist Banksy that swept film festivals this year, is no exception. This "documentary" charts artist Thierry Guetta's mounting obsession with street art (and his eventual selling out to a vampiric commercial art world under the name Mr. Brainwash). But is it real, or another Joaquin Phoenix put-on? "The film's power comes from the fact it’s all 100% true," says Banksy.
