As Adam Szymczyk’s Documenta 14 draws to a close, its organizers have incurred a whopping deficit largely due to the cost of mounting exhibitions in Germany and Greece.
As documenta opens for the first time in Athens, Greek artists and anthropologists are closely observing how the German quinquennial will respond to its new location.
Documenta 14 director Adam Szymczyk wants to show the collection of late art hoarder Cornelius Gurlitt as part of the quinquennial exhibition’s next edition in 2017.
Following reports of Italian art historian Germano Celant getting paid three-quarters of a million Euros (~$1 million) to curate a pavilion for the upcoming Milan Expo, The Art Newspaper conducted an investigation into the pay of independent curators.
The artist list has just been released for New Museum associate director and curator Massimiliano Gioni’s 2013 Venice Biennale, and it features a slew of established names, including Tacita Dean, Carl Andre, and Bruce Nauman. More provocatively, the show will also feature some appropriated objects: “the work of various untrained artists, such as Haitian vodou flags and tantric drawings.”
