Lévy Gorvy to offer major de Kooning from the Collection of Paul Allen at Art Basel HK
The large scale 'Untitled XII', 1975 is one of the last works from a series of large abstracts from 1975 which has not yet ended up in a museum - all the other works from that series are part of collections of renowned museums like the Guggenheim, Stedelijk Museum and The Art Institute of Chicago.
As announced by Brett Gorvy on his Instagram account (which counts 90,000 followers by now - nooo, we’re not jealous at all @brettgorvy ), the asking price will be $35million. -
The record price for a work by the artist was set two years ago with 'Untitled XXV' from 1977 which sold for $66.3million. _________________________________________________________________
Here's Gorvy on the highlight of their Art Basel Hong Kong booth: "Merging glimpses of the fleshy female figure into the dynamism of the landscape surrounding his Long Island studio, 'Untitled XII' demonstrates de Kooning's desire to mirror the continuous flux of the natural world through an entirely abstract language of spontaneity and extravagant gesture."______________________________________________________ #willemdekooning#dekooning#abstractexpressionism#abex#levygorvy#artbaselhk#artbaselhongkong#artbaselhk2018#artbaselhongkong2018#paulallen#paulallencollection

The Autonomous Women’s Movement in the late 1970s and 1980s is a significant feminist movement in India. Highlights from AAA's Collection on the movement will be showcased at our booth at Art Basel, presenting how women in India went on street to perform and fight against violence.
Alongside photo documentation of the Autonomous Women’s Movement, highlights from the personal archive of the Pakistan-based artist Salima Hashmi, portraits of women artists in China taken by art historian and curator Joan Lebold Cohen, and exhibition catalogues of women artists from across Asia in the 1990s and 2000s will be on display.

Seriously under-advertised in our opinion, Face/Off is a Sotheby's selling exhibition showcasing side-by-side the works of modern master Pablo Picasso and contemporary artist George Condo. When we were there, there were maybe 20 visitors in an hour. Had this collection of Picasso's works been shown at any museum in Hong Kong, there would surely be a hours-long queue just for a glimpse of his masterpieces. And since it's a commercial exhibition, entry is free. Catch is that it lasts only till the end of March. Cannot recommend more this rare opportunity to check out an impressive showing of Picassos! #hongkong#urbanadventures#sothebys#pablopicasso#picasso#georgecondo#art#artmonth#artbasel#artbaselhk#artcentral#localsknow

Exhibition | Nilima Sheikh: Lines of Flight at AAA library, 22 Mar–30 Jun 2018
The presentation features a selection of stencils from Sheikh’s archive that have been created by her over the past two decades, in collaboration with a family of traditional stencil-makers from the temple town of Mathura, India. Sheikh has amassed a large archive of stencils that draw on images from art history and citations from various genres of literature. Conventionally seen as finished images, the stencils presented here perform multiple roles—as tools, documents, and images.
See the exhibition and explore the different aspects of Sheikh’s artistic practice, and discover how Sheikh #MakeHistory !
