Cristina Iglesias rediscovers Santander’s lost sea bed

The Spanish artist Cristina Iglesias is making a work of public art featuring water for a park in Santander, northern Spain. Part of her work will appear to flow under the Renzo Piano-designed Centro Botín arts venue, which is being built on the city’s waterfront. Installing the work in the park and testing its computer-controlled flow of water is due to begin, says Benjamin Weil, the artistic director of the Centro Botín. The ambitious commission will be unveiled when the €77m centre opens, which...

The Buck Stopped Here: Alexander Calder’s lewd sculptures, plus Ben Rivers, Enrico David, Cristina Iglesias and Jeff Wall

Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture, Tate Modern (until 13 April 2016) Even before he made his trademark suspended mobile sculptures, this glorious exhibition of one of the twentieth century’s most recognisable—but also under-regarded—artists reveals that Alexander Calder was already king of the kinetic. The first two rooms of his bent, looping—and sometimes lewd—wire portraits and figures bristle with energy and cast shadows that stand in as vivacious alter egos, whether in the tipping movement...

Cristina Iglesias conjures up a lost river in London

On the eve of Halloween, Marian Goodman Gallery’s sleek London space unveiled its own temporary costume change with a touch of the supernatural, courtesy of the Spanish artist Cristina Iglesias. For her new exhibition Phreatic Zones (until 19 December) she has created an underground river that appears to run beneath the David Adjaye-designed white cube. While the gallery walls are bare, a raised paved floor has taken over the main ground floor gallery. Visitors have to look down for the sculptures—Iglesias...

Writing is definitely not on the wall for drawings

Collectors are learning to love wall drawings as a new generation of artists embraces them Collectors have long dismissed wall drawings as intimidating and esoteric, but the technique is gaining visibility—and market traction. Popularised by the conceptual artists Sol LeWitt and Lawrence Weiner in the 1960s, the method is also being embraced by a younger generation, including Wangechi Mutu, Ugo Rondinone and Jeff Elrod. Wall drawings could be considered the oldest form of art: the Lascaux Cave...

Artistic success in America means wearing the right old school tie

Despite paying lip service to diversity, New York’s major museums, galleries and university programmes are bound tightly together in a system that favours the privileged When I saw the report in The Art Newspaper’s April edition that just five blue-chip galleries account for one-third of solo shows in US museums, I did not immediately click on the link to read the story. I really didn’t want to. After reading the article, I posted a single thought on Twitter: “Sometimes you just wait for the anecdotal...

Almost one third of solo shows in US museums go to artists represented by five galleries

Survey reveals prevalence of Pace, Gagosian, David Zwirner, Marian Goodman and Hauser & Wirth in exhibition programming Nearly one-third of the major solo exhibitions held in US museums between 2007 and 2013 featured artists represented by just five galleries, according to research conducted by The Art Newspaper. We analysed nearly 600 exhibitions submitted by 68 museums for our annual attendance-figures survey and found that 30% of prominent solo shows featured artists represented by Gagosian Gallery...

Visitor figures 2014: what do we want? Immersive installations by unfamiliar artists

US institutions think big names draw crowds, but the public is not as predictable as it seems For a contemporary artist, there is no higher honour than to receive a solo exhibition at a major museum. Who is most likely to be given this coveted opportunity? An analysis of 590 solo exhibitions, held at 68 US museums between 2007 and 2013, reflects biases that many knew existed in the art world—but also reveals that audiences do not share the same prejudices. Museums dedicated a disproportionate number...
