NEW YORK, NY.- Two climate activists were arrested in England after they sprayed an orange powder on the monoliths at Stonehenge in what they said was an attempt to bring attention to the climate impact of fossil fuels. The attack on the prehistoric site came Wednesday as the stones would draw the attention of people marking the arrival of the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. The organization that oversees the Stonehenge prehistoric site ... More

Donald Sutherland on the red carpet before the Academy Awards in Los Angeles, March 4, 2018. (Josh Haner/The New York Times)

NEW YORK, NY.- Donald Sutherland, whose ability to both charm and unsettle, both reassure and repulse, was amply displayed in scores of film roles as diverse as a laid-back battlefield surgeon in “M*A*S*H,” a ruthless Nazi spy in “Eye of the Needle,” a soulful father in “Ordinary People” and a strutting fascist in “1900,” died Thursday in Miami. He was 88. His son Kiefer Sutherland, the actor, announced the death on social media. CAA, the talent agency that represented Donald Sutherland, said he had died in a hospital after an unspecified “long illness.” He had a home in Miami. With his long face, droopy eyes, protruding ears and wolfish smile, the 6-foot-4 Sutherland was never anyone’s idea of a movie heartthrob. He often recalled that while growing up in eastern Canada, he once asked his mother if he was good-looking, only to be told, “No, but your face has a lot of character.” He recounted how he was once rejected for a film role by ...

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Magical realism and abstraction converge in the work of artist Angel Otero, whose first Los Angeles exhibition with Hauser & Wirth is on view at the gallery’s West Hollywood location. Otero’s personal recollections of his upbringing in Puerto Rico are woven throughout a group of new paintings and sculptures in which technical innovation becomes the means for conveying ... More

Lita Albuquerque creates her “Malibu Line,” a reconceived work of land art, with vibrant blue powder in Malibu, Calif., on June 13, 2024. (Chantal Anderson/The New York Times)

MALIBU, CALIF.- Lita Albuquerque made a strange sort of painting in 1978 that changed her course as an artist. An abstract painter at the time, she had felt the urge to get out of her studio and work directly on the land where she lived, an artists colony on the bluffs of Malibu. She dug a narrow, shallow, 41-foot-long trench running perpendicular to the Pacific Ocean and poured powdered ultramarine ... More

A view of the Great Omari Mosque and the surrounding fields, taken by Francis Frith circa 1862. (Francis Frith/Library of Congress via The New York Times)

NEW YORK, NY.- Perhaps no structure so exemplified the rich, interwoven history of the Gaza Strip as the Great Omari Mosque, believed by many to be the oldest in the territory. As empires waned, religious buildings on the site — first pagan, then Christian and Muslim — were destroyed or repurposed. The mosque was rebuilt many times, surviving not only as a beloved center for Islamic faith and learning, but also as a symbol of resilience. In December, the mosque was all but destroyed in an airstrike by the Israeli military, which claimed the site had become a command center ... More

'Cats' returns, ditching the junkyard for queer ballroom
NEW YORK, NY.- Things seemed to change when the video came out. At the end of May, the Perelman Arts Center posted a clip on social media of “Jellicle Cats,” the catchy, effervescent opening number from the musical “Cats.” It showed a group of queer performers catwalking in a rehearsal room before breaking apart to freely dance and vogue. One singer wore a cap winkingly topped with feline ears; another stared down the camera and twirled her ponytail with declarative swagger. This was the first real glimpse of a new, ballroom-inspired revival of “Cats,” running through July 28 at PAC NYC, as the Perelman Center in Manhattan is known. Since it was announced nearly a year earlier, the show had been a subject of skepticism and mocking humor: “Cats” was ridiculous enough, but ballroom? Hardly a mention of the production went ...

Centro Botín presents "Partitura" a solo exhibition dedicated to artist Silvia Bächli
SANTANDER.- Running until 20 October 2024, Centro Botín presents Partitura - an exhibition showcasing recent and new works by Swiss artist Silvia Bächli (born 1956, Baden) in dialogue with earlier drawings. Since the late 1970s, Bächli has committed to drawing as a practice that is deeply dependent and entangled with her body and its movements, both within the domestic sphere and the landscape. Her drawings can be read as traces of sensorial records– a walk on a field, a body that aches, a poem that triggers - and corporeal gestures – the extension of the arm, the strength of the hand or the rhythm of the brushstroke. Bächli says: “Drawings are actions. Lines tell stories. What do these lines do? Where is the beginning of a line, does it touch another line? How does it touch them? Words appear, which ones come to the tongue?” For ... More

The careful crafting of Austin Butler
NEW YORK, NY.- There’s a scene early on in the new film “The Bikeriders” that functions like a stress test for stardom. While drinking at a 1960s pool hall, a woman named Kathy (Jodie Comer) is unnerved by the menacing bikers in the room and grabs her purse to go. She’s only stopped dead in her tracks when she catches sight of Benny, another biker, alone. As Kathy stares at him from across the crowded room, the jukebox music and biker chatter fade away, and all you can hear is her stunned gasp as she realizes she’s fallen in love. No visual effects are required for this scene, just a man who can hold the screen and make a woman hold her breath. It’s the sort of role you might have filled in past decades with the likes of Marlon Brando, Paul Newman or Brad Pitt. But who from today’s cohort of young stars has their presence? That’s what worried director Jeff Nichols two year ... More

After 40 years of dance, what happens to a dream fulfilled?
NEW YORK, NY.- Sometime in the early 1980s, choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar had a life-changing dream. Her dead parents, Dot and Al, appeared in it along with other ancestors. They all ate at a table in the middle of the ocean, and her father sang of his failure, cautioning against chasing after outside approval, repeating the phrase “Success is not the test.” A wave crashed over them, and Zollar knew what she had to do. She created Urban Bush Women, a performance ensemble that tells stories based in the African diaspora from a female perspective. The group is now celebrating its 40th anniversary. External markers of success may not be the test, but Zollar, 73, has gathered plenty, especially in the last few years. In 2021, she was named a MacArthur fellow, joining a club associated with genius. “I’ve worked without concern about ... More

Exposing the designer behind the curtain
NEW YORK, NY.- There is a scene late in “Becoming Karl Lagerfeld,” the six-part streaming series on Hulu about the early Paris career of the famed German designer, that features a youngish Karl talking to his mother, who has just had a stroke and whom he has installed in an elaborate château in the French countryside. He is in despair. Without her, Lagerfeld says, there will be no one who knows the real him. “Who cares?” she effectively replies, suggesting that the created self is so much more interesting. For decades, this was essentially dogma in fashion. Great designers were often synonymous with fantasists and mythmakers, not only when it came to their clothes but to their lives. Their homes were extraordinary stage sets; their self-presentation an invention; their speech populated with exaggerated edicts and ultimatums. ... More

How Cage the Elephant's frontman nearly lost it all
NEW YORK, NY.- In the spring of 2020 as the pandemic cut a terrifying path across the globe, touring bands packed up and went home, unsure how they’d survive. At the same time, Matt Shultz, the frontman of Cage the Elephant — the rare arena-scale rock act to emerge within the past two decades — was facing a different crisis in his own head. After releasing five hard-edged yet hook-filled albums with Cage the Elephant since 2008, Shultz, a frontman known for stripping down to underwear and fishnet tights and walking the length of venues atop audience members’ outstretched hands, was not himself. Suffering an extreme reaction to medication he was prescribed to treat ADHD, he fell into psychosis. Consumed by paranoia and convinced he was being hounded by malicious actors who would routinely break into his home, the singer ... More

Berlinische Galerie presents works by the recipient of the Förderpreis 2024: Hannah Höch
BERLIN.- Özlem Altın (*1977 in Goch) is the recipient of the State of Berlin’s Hannah Höch Förderpreis 2024. This honour includes the solo exhibition Prisma at the Berlinische Galerie and the eponymous catalogue. In her artistic work, Özlem Altın prefers not to be associated with any particular art medium. At the Berlinische Galerie, she has engaged in a dynamic process of collaging and photomontage to create a multifaceted, site-specific installation, in which she examines – with a strong measure of empathy – the relational fabric between photography, archive, and body. The exhibition invites visitors to engage with the cycles of life—as a metaphor for process and change or as a reflection of the constantly evolving clockwork of the cosmos. For Özlem Altın, the body is a means of expression and a repository of knowledge at the very same ... More

"Hannah Höch: Montierte Welten" opens at the Lower Belvedere
VIENNA.- The exhibition at the Lower Belvedere pays tribute to one of German modernism’s key figures from the 1920s, an artist whose influence extended far beyond this period. Hannah Höch (1889–1978) was one of the inventors of collage and photomontage. Armed with scissors and glue, she explored the power and impact of images with an ironic and incisive gaze. General Director Stella Rollig: Hannah Höch was the only woman to hold her own in the circle of Berlin Dadaists—an innovative artist, astute observer, and a political mind. A century after she created her groundbreaking works, Höch is now the artist of the hour. We are delighted about our collaboration with the Zentrum Paul Klee, making it possible to present a detailed picture of Höch for the first time in Austria. The exhibition focuses on the montages in ... More

The Brooklyn Academy of Music announces its next wave, and next steps
NEW YORK, NY.- The Brooklyn Academy of Music, a haven for international artists and the avant-garde that has been forced to reduce its programming and lay off workers in recent years, unveiled plans for a reorganization on Thursday as it announced its fall season. The institution said that Amy Cassello, who has been with BAM for more than a decade, would officially become its artistic director, a position she had been holding on an interim basis. And it announced a new strategic plan that calls for programming more works that are still in development, establishing more partnerships with other presenting institutions and hiring a new community-focused “resident curator.” BAM executives said they hoped that the plan would help usher in a new era for the institution after an exceptionally difficult period. Like many nonprofit arts organizations, BAM ... More
