    A satellite in the cloud: online-only art fair launches during Frieze New York



    Twelve galleries are participating in the first formal edition of the Dream art fair, an online-only event “accessible to anyone with a device and an internet connection” (dreamfair.org, until 8 May). Rebecca May Marston, the founder of London’s participating Limoncello gallery, is behind the initiative. “It became so depressing sitting at an art fair and not making money,” she says.She first experimented with selling online-only during Art Basel in Hong Kong in March. “We sent clients previews of what we had, as if we were doing the fair, and it worked—we sold things. Our profits were more than at the MiArt (Milan) and Art Cologne fairs combined.”

    The plan is for the Dream to run concurrently with other major art fairs, including Dream Basel in June and Dream London in October. Galleries do not have to pay to participate (plus, there is the added bonus of not having to buy plane tickets or pay for a hotel). Galleries participating in this month’s edition include Rob Tufnell of Cologne and London, Exile of Berlin and Grey Noise of Dubai.

    The rent is too damn high: artists tackle New York’s gentrification problem



    Throughout May, the public art project MONTH2MONTH is sending eight lottery-selected participants (and some of their partners) to spend four nights in either “affordable” or “luxury” housing in New York for a project that deals with gentrification in the city. The homes on the “affordable” end of the spectrum are located in the East Village and Bushwick neighbourhoods, while the “luxury” residences are located in Gramercy, Chelsea, lower Manhattan and the Upper West Side. *The project has been organised by the artists William Powhida and Jennifer Dalton, and is produced by More Art, the non-profit educational group that focuses on social justice. Powhida and Dalton first collaborated shortly after the financial crisis struck in 2008, creating a set of “condolence cards” for the art world that addressed how the market was shaping the lives of the artists, dealers and collectors who were on the edge of an economic bubble.

    Every weekend, around a dozen collaborators are slated to host panels and performances that reflect on current housing policies and “the class struggle that is gentrification”, Powhida and Dalton told The Art Newspaper in a joint statement. On 14 May, for example, the artist duo Brooklyn Hi-Art Machine (Oasa DuVerney and Mildred Beltre) will host an event titled Gentrifiers Anonymous, inviting visitors to “confess their sins” of urban displacement, large and small. On 21 May, several comedians will join forces for an improvisational work that will attempt to answer how the characters in the 1990s television sitcom Friends could afford their enormous Manhattan apartments, among other questionable living situations in pop culture.

    “We find that many discussions on gentrification involve the role of the artist, described in colonial terms as a ‘pioneer’ of some ‘undiscovered’ neighbourhood, [which] elides the fact that there are already residents living in these communities who are [consequently] displaced”, the artists say, adding that “white artists moving into neighbourhoods can be seen as the enemy by existing communities who all know the formulaic nature of what happens next—the bodega gets a makeover into a 24-hour deli with kale chips and craft beer, generic condos start appearing and rents rise quickly.”
    “While [gentrification] takes many stakeholders who have more power and money than the most artists will ever possess, artists are still the social canary whose cultural value is used to mark the beginning of the end of the [gentrification] process,” Powhida and Dalton say.

    Germany rebuilds historic Cuban ties with flurry of art exhibitions



    Now that it has restored diplomatic ties with Cuba, the US has been busy staging exhibitions of the country’s artists. Germany might have been trailing behind, but it is now quickly catching up. The Kunsthalle Rostock is hosting Kuba Libre at (until 19 June) an exhibition of 30 contemporary Cuban artists who have been working on the Caribbean island for the past two decades.The former-GDR city of Rostock on the Baltic Sea is a fitting location for the show as it has close ties to Cuba. Fidel Castro visited Rostock twice and the city’s Kunsthalle was the only exhibition space that East Germany ever built. “It is important to have this exhibition in Rostock now because Germany has already gone through this process of transformation from communism to capitalism,” says the exhibition’s curator Tereza de Arruda, who has been a guest curator at several editions of the Havana Biennale.

    The exhibition brings together dissident and “official” Cuban artists to “help us understand the current situation in Cuba,” she says. Among the show’s highlights are works from the "special period" in the 1990s when everything was scarce in Cuba as the Eastern Bloc collapsed. The prominent artist Kcho is showing various print-based works (although even printing was challenging during this era) and an installation by Humberto Diaz of a melted car in front of the Rostock museum.

    An exhibition of the same title—Cuba Libre—opened last month at the Ludwig Museum in Koblenz, a town halfway between Cologne and Frankfurt (until 12 June). The show is centered on the collection of Peter und Irene Ludwig, long-time patrons of Cuban art. It includes internationally-recognized Cuban artists such as Los Carpinteros, José Bedia, and Yoan and Iván Capote.

    Stefan Simchowitz settles bitter legal case with Ibrahim Mahama



    The Los Angeles dealer and artist agent Stefan Simchowitz and the Dublin dealer Jonathan Ellis King have settled their legal case against the Ghanaian artist Ibrahim Mahama. A Californian court dismissed the lawsuit on 4 May after a lengthy battle that first began in June 2015 when the dealers sued Mahama for declaring hundreds of jute sack works inauthentic, potentially costing them $4.5m.

    The row centred on six lots of jute sack material, which Mahama sold to Simchowitz and Ellis King for £90,000 in 2013. The artist repurposes the coarse brown sacks that are used to transport coal in Ghana, stitching them together to create tapestry-like installations.

    Mahama countersued in March, claiming that Simchowitz and Ellis King “mutilated” his work by cutting it up into around 300 pieces, and stretching and framing them to sell individually “all without any required written authorisation” from the artist. Mahama’s countersuit alleged the dealers violated the 1990 Visual Artists Rights Act, which protects an artist from “any intentional distortion, mutilation, or other modification of the work”.

    However, Simchowitz and Ellis King claimed Mahama agreed to create “a series of smaller, unique art works” from four of the six lots of jute material, which they would have “the exclusive right to sell”. According to the original complaint, Mahama signed the 294 “individual works” at Ellis King’s gallery in December 2014. After an exhibition at the gallery that month, 27 pieces were sold at around $16,700 each.

    In their lawsuit, Simchowitz and Ellis King demanded the artist authenticate the works. Meanwhile, Mahama’s counterclaim sought an injunction preventing the dealers from selling any more pieces from the series.

    The terms of the settlement remain confidential, although the case was permanently dismissed in its entirety. Both parties must pay their own costs and legal fees.

    Can a $610m renovation of San Francisco’s premier Modern art museum boost the Bay Area’s art market?

    The newly renovated San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA) could be a potential shot in the arm for the Bay Area art market. In March, Pace Gallery opened a new permanent space in Palo Alto and the Gagosian Gallery announced plans to open a new space this month right across the street from SFMoMA.However, the long-time local dealer John Berggruen, who is moving next door to Gagosian’s space, is quick to downplay the idea that the market there is booming. “There are some great top-tier, second-tier and third-tier collections here, but many of those people are getting to be a little older, and some of them are getting to be very dead,” he says.
    Pace Gallery’s Marc Glimcher agrees, although he adds that speculation regarding Silicon Valley’s tech boomers beginning to collect art could be well founded. “People who move our society in a direction tend to end up being the people who are the most important supporters of the arts,” he says, “that’s always been true.”

    Seventeen paintings stolen from Verona museum retrieved in Ukraine



    Andrea Mantegna’s Holy Family with a Saint was among the paintings stolen on 19 November 2015

    Police in Ukraine have retrieved the 17 Old Master paintings stolen from the Museo di Castelvecchio in Verona last November and will soon return them to the museum, the Italian culture ministry announced yesterday, 11 May. The Italian culture minister Dario Franceschini said in a statement that the recovery closes the investigation coordinated by Italy’s Carabinieri unit for art crime in Ukraine and Moldova.The works were found wrapped in plastic bags and hidden in shrubbery on Turunchuk island on the Dniester river near Ukraine's southwestern border with Moldova. The trove, which is estimated to be worth between €10m and €15m, includes five works by Jacopo Tintoretto and paintings by Andrea Mantegna, Peter Paul Rubens and Pisanello. Ukrainian police said the works were due to be resold in Ukraine or Russia, Il Corriere del Veneto*reports.

    Three masked thieves stole the works from the museum at closing time on the evening of 19 November before the alarm system was enabled. In March, Italian police arrested 13 in connection with the theft: 11 Moldovans and two Italians, including the museum security guard.
