About Majhi International Art Residency
Majhi International Art Residency is a yearly itinerant residency programme, initiated and produced by the Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation (DBF). The programme stages cross-cultural encounters between artists, scholars, and thinkers, with the aim of supporting and promoting art and research from South Asia and the Global South in a critical, international context and bridging artistic practices between east and west. The first (2019) edition was held in Venice, Italy, while the second (2020) edition was held in Berlin, Germany, one of the few international residency programmes to take place offline, with artists overcoming travel challenges to contribute to an in-person programme. The third 2021 edition in Eindhoven, will again be held in the context of restrictive international travel, which for artists coming from South Asia and South-East Asia has been particularly challenging. As such, Majhi emphasizes the need for connection and collaboration, which the DBF is committed to cultivating despite the pandemic’s challenges.

About Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation (DBF)
Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation (DBF) is a private foundation set up by art patron and philanthropist Durjoy Rahman in 2018 to support and promote artistic development and art practices from across South Asia and beyond. It supports artists in creating new artworks and engages art practitioners in relevant exhibitions, publications, and residencies, often in collaboration with key international cultural institutions.

Celebs, fashion, 24k chicken wings at Miami Art Basel – BradfordToday

Published

 on


MIAMI (AP) — After a pandemic hiatus, the official Art Basel show is back in Miami with all its eccentric glory, a dizzying list of celebrity attendees and dozens of spin-off shows that are already generating a buzz, including a phenom child painter and a $4 million Banksy sale.

Ten-year-old contemporary artist Andres Valencia’s gallery has already nearly sold out at Art Miami. The San Diego-based artist simply saw a cubist painting in his living room two years ago and declared, ‘I can do that’.

Actress Sophia Vergara bought one of his pieces this week and Channing Tatum, Jordan Belfort, and artist Shepard Fairey stopped by his booth at the Art Miami fair to check out his work, according to a spokesperson for Chase Contemporary.

Proceeds from Valencia’s works are going to the Perry J. Cohen Foundation, which supports the arts, and environmental and wildlife education and preservation.

Maddox Gallery is also showing at Art Miami, selling Banksy’s Charlie Brown for $4 million dollars on Tuesday. A spokeswoman for the gallery said this is the first year they’ve had a profound collection of Banksy canvases including many original works.

Basel’s annual prestigious December art fair draws collectors, socialites and celebrities from around the world. But fashion has also played a prominent role in recent years with Christian Dior hosting its first ever U.S. show in 2019 as a sort of unofficial kick-off to Miami’s art week.

Louis Vuitton did the same on Tuesday night, with its first ever U.S. fashion show. But the sudden death of its 41-year-old legendary designer Virgil Abloh turned the show into a somber yet whimsical celebration of life attended by Rihanna, Kim Kardashian West and her daughter North, Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, model Bella Hadid, Joe Jonas, Maluma and Pharrell. Kid Cudi and Erykah Badu performed at an after-party. Ivanka Trump and hubby Jared Kushner were also in the crowd.

And Chanel collaborated with artist Es Devlin for a monumental sculptural installation to celebrate its iconic fragrance. The fashion house is taking over Jungle Plaza to create a multi-sensory experience using hundreds of plants and trees. The installation is open to the public, but several big name celebs are expected to attend Friday’s VIP dinner with a top-secret performance.

Gucci is hosting a party Thursday night to celebrate Mickalene Thomas’ Monograph.

Alicia Keys, Lizzo and Cardi B are also among those performing around town this week. The rapper is launching a new line of Vodka infused whipped cream on Saturday. After-party performances at various clubs this weekend include Migos, Meek Mill, Diplo and Marshmello.

While Miami’s art week is a draw for serious collectors, it is also full of the absurd, including diamond and gold chicken wings. Yep, Miami’s DJ Khaled dropped “bling wings” topped with 24-karat gold dust and edible diamonds to promote his restaurant Another Wing.

There’s also an 18 carat gold bagel avocado toast on sale for $2.9 million at Galerie Rother at Art Miami.

Celebrity sightings included Martha Stewart in a gold coat and walking cane at Komodo restaurant and the Denver Nuggets and Venus Williams popped bottles all night at Pharrell and David Grutman’s restaurant Swan.

Hailey Bieber, Olivia Rodrigo, Brooklyn Beckham, Nicola Peltz were spotted loading up on cocktails and caviar at Papi Steak and singer Camila Cabello was spotted in the trendy art district of Wynwood on Monday for an unveiling at Wynwood Walls to celebrate 14 new artists with murals and sculptures.

Published

 on


A group of 11 artists who create collaborative actions in response to social and political issues affecting Northern Ireland has won this year’s Turner Prize.

The Array Collective, which received £25,000, was presented with the award at a ceremony in Coventry, home to the UK City of Culture 2021. This year’s Turner Prize exhibition is being held at Coventry’s Herbert Art Gallery & Museum (until 12 January).

A further £10,000 was awarded to each of the other nominees, which consisted entirely of artist collectives and artist-run projects. The others on the shortlist were Black Obsidian Sound System, Cooking Sections, Gentle/Radical and Project Art Works.

The jury awarded the prize to Array Collective for their “hopeful and dynamic artwork, which addresses urgent social and political issues affecting Northern Ireland with humour, seriousness and beauty”. They were impressed with how the group was able to translate its activism and values into the gallery environment. 

The jury commended all five nominees for their socially engaged artworks, and how they work closely and creatively with communities across the UK.

The members of the Turner Prize 2021 jury were Aaron Cezar, director, Delfina Foundation; Kim McAleese, programme director, Grand Union; Russell Tovey, actor; and Zoé Whitley, director, Chisenhale Gallery. The jury is chaired by Alex Farquharson, the director of Tate Britain.

The Turner Prize, which is run by Tate, was established to promote public debate around new developments in contemporary British art.
