PLOT: THE UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTH of the art world-market in deep crisis is beginning to show its effect: a long drawn-out process having had its beginning in Dada and periodically interrupted by countertendencies - not all of them reactionary in spirit - is nearing its completion. Artificial cultivation of decorative and aesthetic values, reckless investment speculation, aided by large numbers of collaborating artists has brought about a situation reminiscent of the last stage of a bull market on the stock exchange. Aesthetically and philosophically the bottom has already dropped out: the mini-movements cultivating aesthetic facets bypassed by the pioneers of modern art, are being groomed, cultivated, enlarged all out of proportion to their art-historical value; even amputated splinters of old rebellious Dada are being enlarged into acceptable - and saleable aesthetic parlor games. ---►Boris Lurie
We mourn for the loss of Aldo Tambellini a friend and catalyzer of the NO!art movement. He died on November 12th 2020 at the age of 90 years in Cambridge/U.S.A.

FRANZISKA BECHER | Concept artist. Her versatile, creative working methods, which are unable to be summed up in one concrete style or topic, make her pieces something very much individual.

Mathilda Wolf: My pictures are already within me and they push me to let them out. But when I long for the possibility to paint without difficulties and conflicts it is good to remember that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure. Then I become fascinated in following the dynamics and impulses of my pictures, their forms and colours and their fantastic imagination. They materialize according to their own rules. The most important thing I have to do is accepting these rules and not try . . . ►more

NEW BORIS LURIE ART FOUNDATION CENTER
BLAF now at SRI Fine Art Services, Clifton/NJ | Fontside view
BLAF now at SRI Fine Art Services, Clifton/NJ | Inside view
The Boris Lurie Art Foundation is excited to unveil its state-of-the-art 4,000 square foot space in Clifton, NJ. Award winning architect Julian von der Schulenburg has created a versatile space inspired by the industrial shell of the warehouse-like building. Incorporated into the design is a gallery space where the Foundation can host curators to view the over 3,000 works in its collection. In addition to the viewing area, ample space is provided for open art storage, restoration facilities, an archive room, and a research library.
COMMENT: BLAF does not manage artist grants, instead they support with Boris' millions "poor" museums and galleries, and hides Boris Lurie's art on the outskirts of New York in warehouses that nobody will visit for studies. BLAF is not interested in spreading out Boris Lurie's ideas. Instead, BLAF restricts itself to Boris' early works and keeps historians constantly on the Holocaust track. BLAF totally negates Boris' former friends and supporters. BLAF adorns itself with ignorant professors, art historians and journalists. A "wonderful" example for the mendacious manipulations in the art scene.
