One of the most renowned artists of modern times, Andrew Wyeth continues to hold the American public enthrall with his almost photographic quality paintings. Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (organizer), A Forest of Signs: Art in the Crisis of Representation (traveled to: Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, September 4-November 17, 1989; Whitney Museum of American Art, December 15, 1989-January 12, 1990). Movement: The bands form lines along which the eye moves quickly. Contrast: Organic versus geometric, black versus white. Space: The black is seen as infinite space, but the vertical bands stops the eye from going back into it. The vertical bands appear to be behind the white and organic bands because they are interrupted and therefore perceived as overlapped. Kerber, Bernhard. Bestände Onnasch (text in German; includes artist’s statements). Bremen, Germany: Neues Museum Weserburg, 1992. A suite of lithographs by four artists from the Kalahari Desert in Southern Africa and four artists from the pueblos of New Mexico presents a colorful and varied interpretation of the idea of the roguish trickster, referencing a transformation process through the candor of the storytelling tradition. This cultural exchange brought artists together to share stories and make prints about the popular folkloric figure of the trickster. The project began with the participants sharing stories while traveling to New Mexico sites and returning to the Tamarind to work in collaboration with the institute’s master printers. This visual journey coincides with the Global DanceFest JourneysAFRICA. Deals in work by emerging artists and the fringe of contemporary culture. Being born with autism makes it difficult to interact with others or communicate verbally. It causes the affected person to be unaware of reacting in ways that others do not commonly react in society. Music therapy provided William a non-threatening environment in which to build relationships with peers, express himself verbally and nonverbally and learn to participate in socially acceptable ways. This was achieved through group therapy, as well as individualized sessions. Both forms were ideal for William, because individual lessons allowed him to learn at his own pace. These lessons were tailored to meet his needs. They helped him to learn to read music, follow a rhythm, and to respect the need to display the proper behavior in the proper situation. Small group therapy required him to learn to take turns and to be a focused member of a team. He had to use proper questions and verbal responses. He had to learn to be both leader and supportive member. This even carried over to life outside of The Music Settlement, as William auditioned for and earned a position on a regular team of drummers for his school. He was able to perform at the House of Blues in front of a large, noisy audience, with no problem. This was not something that he would have been able to withstand before his experiences in music therapy.

In comparison with Western buying, mainland Chinese participation pales. Though there are many rumors about the power of the new Chinese buyers, their presence has not been felt in the major auction houses, where most of the records are being set. “Hong Kong right now covers the global buyers, especially those from across Asia,” says Eric Chang, Christie’s international director of Asian contemporary art. “I am not really seeing mainland Chinese buyers-less than 10 percent-a drop from around 12 percent.” Dealers in China also have seen few mainland collectors among their regular clients. “I don’t know yet about collectors,” says New York dealer Christophe Mao of Chambers Fine Art, which recently opened a branch in Beijing.

But by the end of the 19th century many Western artists felt a need to create a new kind of art that reflected the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. Maurice Tuchman, the exhibition curator, threw down the gauntlet in the first line of his catalogue essay. He declared, Abstract art remains misunderstood by the majority of the viewing public.” In a sprawling exhibition of works by more than 100 artists, he presented both canonical figures and little known practitioners, early modernist masters and contemporary artists, in each case revealing deep connections to spiritual, utopian, or metaphysical beliefs.
