Everything You Missed in Art World News This Week
From KAWS`generous gift to the Moomins.
Entertainment 15 Apr 2019

seq84-sc55-posing-essai-traits_1Who knew? KAWS, who was on the gala circuit in full force this week (hello, an honor from Tribeca Ball), made headlines when he gave a fan a work of art drawn on a piece of paper. The fan said she always wanted to own a work from him. Talk about magic.

Patti Smith is more than just an art world icon, photographer, poet, activist and even the former lover to Robert Mapplethorpe. She performed at EarthFest this weekend at the Museum of Natural History in New York, where she crooned her classic hits and cried during a cover of her power to the people song performed by the Harlem Gospel Choir, who opened for her. It was epic.
The #MeToo movement is in full force in the art world. The Victoria & Albert Museum in London is facing backlash after planning an exhibit to apparently include a portrait of the disgraced American actor Kevin Spacey, who has been accused of sexual assault. The museum wants to present a record of the history of theater in the UK and it was going to be used in that context. Probably not anymore.
The first ever Helsinki Biennial is planning to launch in 2020 and they’re going to take advantage of the Scandinavian summer sun, offering access to exhibits around the clock. It’s being presented by the Helsinki Art Museum and will promote Finnish art. We hope to see some Moomins there.

An art exhibition focused on Donald Trump is filled with memorabilia, as the artist Andreas Serrano spent $200,000 to buy random things on eBay like a slice of the president’s wedding cake to Trump steaks and more. The artist claims to have a strong stomach, he said in an interview with artnet News.
