Art - Page 92

Dream job- art heist detective.

Good read - the headhunters. Its fiction, but a good easy mystery thriller on art dealing and theft.

Got the movie treatment.

No. It's totally alluring. I still get fascinated by any news tips regarding the missing pieces from the Gardner Museum in Boston.

Exhibiton about John Cage (100 years John Cage). Worth it?
(I'm currently deciding on either go see that exhibition, Albert Watson in Benin or Matta... or maybe two of them)

Matta or Matta-Clark? All other options should be dropped if the latter.

"Just" the dad. (Matta-Clark sounds very interesting though, maybe I'll get to see some work of his sometime).

Currently, I tend to Albert Watson in Benin and Matta.

Of the three, I'd say John Cage, but I hate most Surrealism and photography exhibitions

Hm, I'll think about it. Thanks.

Question. For a friend, so no humblebrag.
If artwork you own is going to be used in a Museum Exhibit, is there any reason why you would want your name identified as the owner, rather thna just "private collection"? The reasons not to have your name seem obvious-increased likelihood of theft, nosy neighbors, etc. But what, if any, are the reasons to have your name listed?

Add to the posterity dossier if you want to donate later on. Plus people want to be recognized for their good taste. Part human insecurity, part social ziggurat.

When a piece of ours was used in a show they called it "private collection" but named the collectors who weren't also dealers

Isn't this the same regardless of whether a name is listed?

As far as the pedigree of tge piece goes sure, but making it public may effect how the collector is treated by other collectors and officials from other institutions.

I have two great friends who have some unusual art and furnishings in their Southern CA home. This Jorge Marin bronze is my favorite and it sits behind this Sam Maloof chair and table (Sam was my friend's step-father who gave him many wonderful original pieces.) The house is full of great pieces all in an unpretentious setting/ Amazing to live among $30K chairs and the like. I wonder if I could.
