To mark the 50th anniversary of Picasso’s death, Pace Publishing has released a new title Picasso: 14 Sketchbooks. You can take a look at the original Picasso sketches here, uploaded to accompany an online announcement (Uncovering Picasso’s Masterpieces in His Sketchbooks) of the book’s release.

If you’re in New York, check out A Foreigner Called Picasso, curated by Annie Cohen-Solal and Vérane Tasseau at Gagosian (West 21st Street) until February 10, 2024.

“I can say that the steps that lead to my finished drawings are very unspectacular. It’s more like with a sculpture, where I chip away piece by piece from a stone and slowly get closer to the final form — to hopefully have an elegant form where the reader is in any kind of way emotionally touched. But creating never happens in those big gestures that the final product suggests in the end. It’s a rather boring film that plays in my head.” Christoph Niemann

“Well if you work for the expectations of the people then you start to work as an entertainer and somehow you sacrifice your own exploration of things. You became a kind of employee of the public demand for entertainment and spectacle and political things. So if it’s different from what they expect or is something that is not what they were waiting for, they have to try and understand why is that. I feel like reality is like that. That’s the whole thing. Reality in general can be disappointing, it’s not what you expect, and then something nice happens, but you never know when. I try to be disappointing and then to have a variety that gives me the chance to work in different places in different manners, small scale, big scale, low productions terms, short encounters with a fragile material.” Gabriel Orozco

“…I try not to think about anything to do with compliments or acceptance. I think once you get into that, there’s a danger of thinking, “Right, that’s what they like, I must continue to do that.” I think that that creates an inner strength and power in you. I mean, where do you get power from when people are constantly being complimentary?” Cosey Fanni Tutti

“David Goldblatt: No Ulterior Motive” will be on at the Art Institute of Chicago until March 25, 2024, with his works appearing alongside works by other South African photographers, including Lebohang Kganye, Zanele Muholi, and Santu Mofokeng.

In 2024, to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Caspar David Friedrich’s birth, a comprehensive series of exhibitions containing the work of the celebrated Romantic painter will be launched across Germany. “Caspar David Friedrich: Art for a New Age” will be on at Hamburger Kunsthalle until April 1, 2024, and other works will be displayed throughout the year at the Alte Nationalgalerie, the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, and in his birth city of Greifswald.

“Homiens is a wonderful place for artists to share their work, and to gain more exposure than they otherwise might have.” Owen Maclean
