Park West Gallery Artist Sessions: The Collectors

Which artist(s) whose works you’ve collected would you most like to meet in person? Who have you already met that you’d like to see again?

It is a special joy and privilege for us to put our customers directly in touch with our artists, an experience historically reserved for only the wealthiest of art patrons and collectors — that is, until the founding of Park West Gallery. We thought we’d turn the tables and share a little insight into how our artists feel about our collectors. Watch:

Duaiv: A Life in Art and Music [Video]

“A Life in Art an Music” explores Duaiv’s background as both a professional artist and cello player. His relationships with famous artists such as Salvador Dali and musicians such as Yo Yo Ma, have shaped the way Duaiv portrays his artwork and his “happenings” — events that present art in fresh and exciting new ways. Growing up in France on the Mediterranean, he is able to draw from iconic memories of both land and sea, the very same scenes that have captivated artists for generations. Watch:

April 10 – July 22, 2013

Grand Palais, Paris

Notions of space, vision and light run through the abstract art of the 20th century and interest many world renowned contemporary artists. By putting vibration along with the spectator’s perception in the center of their works, they set up multiple resonances with optical and kinetic art, which first emerged at the Movement exhibition in Denise René’s Paris gallery in 1955, but also, more broadly, with what was later called “perceptual art” at the exhibition “The Responsive Eye” at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1965.

In an unprecedented move, the whole of the Galeries nationales du Grand Palais, an area of about 3,700 square meters, has been made available for the exhibition, in order to present almost 150 artists, who contributed to the development of this approach over a hundred years or so. Outstanding among them are Anish Kapoor, Marcel Duchamp, Victor Vasarely, Alexander Calder and Yaacov Agam.

After an introduction that starts with the most recent work and goes back in time, the exhibition puts the emphasis on the dialogue between the various periods, seeking to show the continuity of these ideas and their complex interweaving. The two main parts – “Vision” and “Space” – are divided into sixteen subsections dealing with various aspects of phenomenal experience: immateriality, monochrome, interference, immersion, flickering, haziness, instability, distortion, the void, the invisible and permutation.

Fine art by Yaacov Agam is available through Park West Gallery and our cruise art auctions at sea. Learn more at www.parkwestgallery.com.
