    Foam machines, scented curtains and cherry pips feature in first Hepworth Sculpture Prize show

    The inaugural Hepworth Sculpture Prize exhibition, which opens tomorrow (21 October) at The Hepworth Wakefield in the north of England, highlights the malleable nature of contemporary sculpture. Works by the young London-based artist Helen Marten, who has also been nominated for the Turner Prize this year, could equally be described as paintings, prints or installations. Among her seven works on show The Hepworth Wakefield are screen-printed leather canvases decorated with a number of appendages such as cherry stones and cigarettes.“We have based the selection of the four shortlisted artists on the significance of their contribution to sculpture in its broadest definition,” says Simon Wallis, the director of The Hepworth Wakefield and also the chair of the award’s selection panel.

    The other three nominees for the £30,000 prize—Phyllida Barlow, Steven Claydon, and David Medalla—may make works that are more sculptural than Marten but they are far from traditional.

    Barlow, who will represent Britain at next year’s Venice Biennale and was an influential teacher at the Slade School of Fine Art, has used her customary low-cost materials such as plywood, tape, sand and PVA glue to create a huge immersive installation. Claydon is showing work from his recent show at Sadie Coles HQ, including a yellow PVC curtain—commonly used for walk-in fridges—that he has scented with citronella. The Philippine-born Medalla, who is the oldest artist on the shortlist, is exhibiting his signature foam-producing sculptures that he began making in the 1960s.

    The Hepworth Sculpture Prize is awarded to a British or UK-based artist “who has made a significant contribution to the development of contemporary sculpture,” a press statement says. “There is no shortage of prizes in the art world, however few specifically recognise sculpture,” Wallis adds.The winner will be chosen by a panel of judges and announced on 17 November. The judges are the director of GAM and Castello di Rivoli museums in Turin, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev; the architect David Chipperfield; the president of the Sharjah Art Foundation Sheikha Hoor al-Qasimi; the patron and collector Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo; and the art critic Alastair Sooke. Members of the public will also be able to vote for their winner of the People’s Choice Award.

    How collectors made silver all their own



    The Cassel Beaker, (1496-67). (Copyright Victoria and Albert Museum, London)

    The exhibition Silver: Light and Shade at the Holburne Museum in Bath brings together 500 years’ worth of silver-making, from the earliest surviving English drinking vessel, the Cassel Beaker (around 1496-97), to contemporary pieces such as a water beaker made in 2013 by the UK silversmith Rod Kelly. The survey aims to explore “what’s unique, what’s different and what people often miss” when looking at silver, says the show’s curator, Catrin Jones.Through a number of techniques such as gilding and patination, silver can often “not look like itself”, Jones says. “Different artists can bring such different approaches to the same form,” she says, and the exhibition will show the range of possibilities. As an example, Jones cites a collection of slices, used to cut fish or cakes, commissioned by the collector and chemistry professor Seymour Rabinovitch, around the turn of the 21st century. Rabinovitch gave 100 silversmiths in the UK and North America the task of making him a slice using the same amount of silver, emphasising that he was more interested in creativity than function. The result—a small selection of which will be on show at the Holburne—was “an absolutely extraordinary variety of shapes” for what is “ostensibly a functional object”, Jones says.

    US collectors Marlene and Spencer Hays donate major collection to Musée d’Orsay



    The Musée d’Orsay has received one of its largest ever donations after the US collectors Marlene and Spencer Hays announced they will give 187 turn-of-the-century masterpieces to the Paris museum. The gift includes works by Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard and Odilon Redon.Audrey Azoulay, the French culture secretary, told France24 TV: “This donation, which is exceptional for its size and coherence, is the largest a French museum has received from a foreign donor since 1945.” A statement from the French Ministry of Culture says that all 600 works owned by the couple will eventually be donated to the museum.

    The couple has specified that the works, to be bequeathed after they die, should be exhibited in a single space rather than dispersed throughout the museum. A selection of works from the Hays’ collection was shown at the Musée d’Orsay in the 2013 exhibition A French Passion.

    Is a Royal Academy retrospective on the cards for Marina?



    Rumours abound that the queen of endurance Marina Abramovic will get a retrospective at the Royal Academy of Arts (RA) in London. According to the Guardian,*the blockbuster show is planned for 2020.*A Royal Academy spokeswoman says that “the RA is involved in conversations with Marina Abramovic and will announce further information in due course.” Earlier this year, the grande dame of performance told us that she hopes to premiere her video tribute to the opera singer Maria Callas, Seven Deaths, at the RA. Seven Deaths is “based on the idea that Maria Callas died of a broken heart”, the artist said. In a series of seven ten-minute videos, Abramovic will perform the death scenes of seven tragic heroines embodied by the soprano, including Madame Butterfly.*

    Herzog & de Meuron wins competition to build Berlin’s Museum of the 20th Century



    The Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron has won a competition to build a new museum of 20th-century art in central Berlin with a long, low red-brick design that invited comparisons to a rail station, a barn, a temple and an indoor market.The site for the new museum is between Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s metal-and-glass Neue Nationalgalerie and Hans Scharoun’s spiky gold Philharmonic, two architectural landmarks of the 1960s. It is also flanked on one side by Friedrich August Stüler’s red-brick 19th-century St Matthäus Kirche.

    The winning design “doesn’t attempt to compete with the ‘divas’ by Scharoun and Mies van der Rohe,” said Hermann Parzinger, the president of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, at a press conference today (27 October). “But it still makes a very strong statement. It achieves an almost impossible feat by healing this place and bringing together these buildings.”

    Britain’s ‘art lending library’ finds four new homes



    The Arts Council Collection, the world’s largest loan collection of Modern and contemporary British art, is partnering with four major galleries outside London to stage 24 exhibitions over the next three years.Founded in 1946, the collection acts as “the nation’s art lending library”, making nearly 8,000 works by more than 2,000 artists available for loan to museums, galleries, hospitals, schools and other public buildings across the UK. On 27 October, the organisation launched the National Partners’ programme of exhibitions as part of its 70th anniversary celebrations. The scheme will give an itinerant collection four semi-permanent homes until spring 2019: the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, Birmingham Museums Trust, Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The participating institutions responded to an open call by Arts Council England last summer.
