Gyo Obata (1923-2022)

The Japanese American National Museum (JANM) is deeply saddened by the passing of renowned architect Gyo Obata, who designed JANM’s 84,000 square foot pavilion. Obata was 99 when he died Tuesday, March 8, in St. Louis, Mo.

Obata was born in San Francisco in 1923. His father, Chiura, was an Issei painter and professor of art at UC Berkeley. Her mother, Haruko, was an Issei ikebana specialist. Obata was a freshman architecture student at UC Berkeley when the Japanese military attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941. He transferred to Washington University in St. Louis while his family was incarcerated in the temporary detention center Tanforan and Topaz Concentration Camp during World War II.

In Tanforan, Chiura and George Matsusaburo Hibi founded the Tanforan School of Art, where artists such as Miné Okubo served as instructors. When the inmates were sent to Utah, they renamed it Topaz Art School.

After graduating from the University of Washington in 1945, Obata earned a master’s degree at the Cranbrook Academy of Arts in Detroit. In 1955, he founded Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum (HOK) with George Hellmuth and George Kassabaum in Saint-Louis. His designs include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois, and the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.

After JANM opened in 1992, the board of trustees commissioned Obata to design a new building that expanded the museum’s collection space, exhibition, and facilities. Obata chose materials such as wood, stone, and glass to echo the aesthetic of JANM’s historic building and fuse Japanese and American influences.

JANM received the Twenty-Five Year Award from the American Institute of Architects Los Angeles (AIALA) in October 2021. This award recognizes architecture that has had a lasting impact for 25 to 35 years. AIALA chose the JANM pavilion because its design elevates the place and creates a sense of growth and community.

“The Gyo Pavilion embodies openness and transparency, the principles of American democracy, and historic responsibility,” said Ann Burroughs, President and CEO of JANM. “As you walk through JANM, you can feel his vision reverberating throughout the building. We are eternally grateful for his extraordinary service. We extend our deepest thanks and deepest condolences to his family.”

First Light is a two-person exhibition of paintings by Lewis Brander and Sonya Derviz, 2018 graduate students of Goldsmiths and the Slade School of Fine Art respectively. In the years following post-art school, Lewis and Sonya diligently continued to pursue and advance their painting practices, Lewis having moved to Athens and since returned, and both having stoically resisted both past years plagued by the pandemic. This exhibition, thus the first of our 2022 program at the Collective Ending headquarters, features recent paintings that reward extended, in-person viewing by alumni.

Lewis Brander Paros 2019 Oil on linen 29.5 x 29.5 cm Courtesy the artist and Collective Ending

Lewis’ paintings capture fleeting moments and fading memories, addressing sentimentality as a subject in itself. Representative but employing an avoidance of set narratives or dictated interpretations, his hazy, faded depictions of crumbling Greek colonnades, reclining lovers, or listless London skies capture sentiment rather than fact. Charged with a deep-rooted love for hand ground oils and a penchant for pure pigments, Lewis paints on raw linen or canvas to achieve
subtle, muted tones and pale, hazy hues that resonate and radiate.

Sonya is a fine observer and documentarian of her own environment, her emotions and her lived experience. Basing her artistic practice on the prolific collection of found images, she fervently exploits her sources, her environment and her own subconscious to find inspiration. However, during the physical process of painting Sonya embraces an innate intuition and inherent instinct for what is needed on the canvas. An inevitable imagination, each painting ends up being an exaggerated, altered or poorly remembered representation of their original influences.

Collective Ending presents Lewis Brander & Sonya Derviz First Light Organized by Hector Campbell February 19 – March 19 Opening: Saturday February 19, 5pm-10pm

Kinsey African American Art Collection, one of the hidden gems of Super Bowl 56 https://mongegrafico.com/kinsey-african-american-art-collection-one-of-the-hidden-gems-of-super-bowl-56/ Wed, 02 Feb 2022 02:15:51 +0000 https://mongegrafico.com/kinsey-african-american-art-collection-one-of-the-hidden-gems-of-super-bowl-56/ The award-winning Kinsey Collection of African American Art and History is on display inside SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, kicking off the celebration of Black History Month on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.

When Khalil Kinsey saw his family’s private collection of African American art and history on public display at SoFi Stadium on the first day of Black History Month, he knew it had the potential to open hearts and minds by illuminating and ultimately inspiring change.

The award-winning gallery is billed as the historical representation of black contribution and achievement in America, with the earliest piece in the collection dating to 1595.

“A lot of our story is still ongoing,” Kinsey said. “It’s important for us to understand that this is true in everyone’s life.

“What we say in regards to African American history is something that should be more enlightened. It is something that should burst into human and American consciousness because it is so important, so powerful, and so beautiful.

Kinsey acknowledges that a lot of progress has been made, but thinks there’s still more to do. He believes that understanding diverse viewpoints will equip society to move forward in the future.

Meanwhile, with more than 70 artworks and historical documents on display, Kinsey, who is from Los Angeles, said it was difficult to choose his favorites because he believes each piece is important and meaningful.

Whether it’s a bust portrait of a 19th-century slave boy or the first edition of poet Phillis Wheatley’s 1773 book, the curated experience is a journey through black history.

The Kinsey African American Art and History Collection brings to light the little-known fact that despite being enslaved in the Americas as a West African child in the 1760s, Wheatley became the African-American author of a published book of poetry.

“12 to 14 million Africans stolen from Africa permeated the entire Western Hemisphere but only 400,000 came to what became the United States/North America. When you think of everything from Patagonia (in America South) to North America, there is a huge black presence,” Kinsey continued.

The collection, which also highlights the Civil War, Emancipation, Reconstruction, the Civil Rights era, and the modern African-American experience, opens to general admission with hour-long self-guided tours on February 23 and will be on display through April.

However, the collection will be available for a preview of Super Bowl 56 for suite-level ticket holders on February 13 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.

“It’s really going to open up a lot of perspectives and a lot of perspectives on African Americans in this country,” said Jason Witt, director of community engagement at SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park. “When we talk about the community partnerships we want to build, they have to be authentic.”

Meanwhile, Kinsey said her family’s love affair with art began more than 50 years ago with her parents Bernard and Shirley Kinsey and their appreciation of culture and history.

“Some things come from auctions, some come to us through donations, but most of the time they come from us looking for them in private collections,” Kinsey explained.

The collection also includes a first-edition signed book by WEB Du Bois titled “The Souls of Black Folk”, which was published in 1903. Kinsey said the manuscript remains relevant over 100 years after it was written, as it highlights highlight race and ethnicity.

“We have a humble goal when it comes to people walking through this exhibit or one of our exhibits and leaving saying, ‘I didn’t know that,'” Kinsey revealed.

“We always talk about a process called learn, use, teach. You learn something, you use it in your own life and then you teach others and that’s the simple goal that we want from here for people to come away a little bit broader, a little more enriched and that can inspire them to do more research and maybe even collect some of this for themselves.

Certain to sell for at least $40 million, thanks to a minimum, pre-established “irrevocable bid” from a third-party guarantor, the painting attracted two other bidders. The winning bid, which was not that of the guarantor, was taken by a specialist in old masters from Sotheby’s, Elisabeth Lobkowicz, At New York. The contest lasted six minutes, with bidders offering tentative increases of $100,000.

“It was the right price for the subject – a ‘Christ of Sorrows,'” said Marco Voena, partner at international art dealership Robilant + Voena. “It was a difficult time for Botticelli,” he added, referring to the fervent religiosity of the artist’s late works, which some consider less beautiful.

“The Man of Sorrows” was last auctioned, cataloged as a Botticelli, in 1963, when it sold for a whopping $26,000. Ronald Lightbown, the leading Botticelli scholar of the time, later listed the painting among “studio and school pictures” in his 1978 comprehensive catalog of the artist’s works. It was grouped among the “late workshop products of Botticelli’s circle” in Frank Zöllner’s 2005 monograph on the artist.

But in 2009, this long-ignored painting, from an unnamed family collection, was included as a work with autograph status in the “Botticelli: Resemblance, Myth, Devotion” exhibition at the Städel Museum in Frankfurt.

Bastien Eclercy, curator of the Städel of Italian, French and Spanish paintings before 1800, wrote in the exhibition catalog that the “rediscovered painting from a private collection” represented not only “an important new example of Botticelli’s late period “, but also added a “striking facet to our understanding of the depiction of Christ in the Renaissance.

The attribution was approved by Laurence Kanter, chief curator of European art at the Yale University Art Gallery, and Keith Christiansen, former chair of the European paintings department at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, according to Sotheby’s.

Sotheby’s describes ‘The Man of Sorrows’ as a late work by Botticelli from around 1500, a period when, according to Giorgio Vasari’s 1550 ‘Lives of the Artists’, the Florentine painter fell under the influence of preaching of fire and brimstone of the Dominican friar Girolamo Savonarola, becoming an adherent of the sect of the preacher. The works of Botticelli’s later period have been considered by modern scholars to be imbued with intense religious fervor. The Sotheby’s composition is notable for its halo of mourning angels surrounding the thorn-crowned head of the risen Christ.

The re-attributed painting, touted by Sotheby’s as Botticelli’s “defining late-career masterpiece”, went on a global marketing tour with viewings in Los Angeles, London, Dubai and New York. It hung alone in a sepulchral semi-darkness next to photographs that invited comparisons with Albrecht Dürer’s famous “Self-Portrait” at Munich’s Alte Pinakothek and Leonardo da Vinci’s “Salvator Mundi” or “Savior of the World” which sold for $450.3 million at Christie’s, a record for all works of art offered at auction.

It turned out to be Botticelli’s second big ticket sold by Sotheby’s within 12 months. Last January, “Portrait of a Young Man Holding a Cockade,” from the estate of New York real estate magnate and art collector Sheldon Solow, sold for a record $92.2 million. for a Botticelli at auction and an old master photo at Sotheby’s.

Comparing Thursday’s sale to that of last January, Fabrice Moretti, director of London-based former masters dealer Moretti Fine Art Ltd., said “The Man of Sorrows” was “very religious, introspective and powerful. Half price proportion is about right.

Hugo Nathan, a partner at London-based art advisers Beaumont Nathan, said he does not recommend ‘The Man of Sorrows’ to his clients.

“It was a huge prize,” he said. “And personally, I didn’t like the photo. The hands are so clumsy. It was not an image to stimulate the imagination.
