NEW YORK, NY.- Gagosian Gallery presents "Roy Lichtenstein: Still Lifes," the first exhibition devoted solely to Lichtenstein's still life paintings, sculptures and drawings, which span from 1972 through the early 1980s. Although Lichtenstein will always be synonymous with Pop Art, he continued to make inventive new work for almost three decades beyond the 1960s, during which he had become famous for his distinctive use of popular cartoon images and commercial painting style. On exhibition 8 May through 30 July, 2010.
BERLIN.- Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers present an exhibition of new works by Andreas Gursky in Berlin. The series of works represents an important new development in Gursky's practice in which the artist reassesses the way he works with photography. Like many of Andreas Gursky’s works, the new, six-part series Ocean I-VI (2009-2010) goes back to a spontaneous visual experience. As the artist relates, while flying one night from Dubai to Melbourne he stared for some time at the flight monitor: the Horn of Africa to the far left, a tip of Australia to the far right – and there in between the blue void. Then all of a sudden he saw the graphic representation on the monitor as a picture.

The notebooks and pages that comprise the World War II diary have been moved into the Anne Frank House museum to mark 50 years since it opened its doors to the public. Dutch Queen Beatrix opened the exhibition, then attended a commemoration at the 17th century Western Church a few dozen steps from museum.

On exhibition 2 April through 2 May, 2010.

At the announcement, Chairman Landesman was joined by DASH principal Stacey Mancuso, arts advocate and patron Lin Arison, gallerist David Castillo, director of The Wolfsonian-FIU Cathy Leff, architect Terry Riley, and NEA Senior Deputy Chairman Joan Shigekawa. The visit to DASH was part of the Chairman's latest stop on his "Art Works" tour across America; he was in Miami to see the role that design, architecture, and artists play in creating the greater Miami area we know today.
