Love Texas Art, a gallery that opened in downtown Fort Worth last spring, has announced it is closing at the end of May. This follows the closure and relocation, respectively, of  two other galleries — Dang Good Candy and Bale Creek Allen Gallery — which were located on Houston Street in Sundance Square, a 37-block area of downtown owned and operated by Ed and Sasha Bass.

Margery Gossett and Ariel Davis opened Love Texas Art in March 2022 as an extension of Artspace111, an established gallery located at the northeast edge of downtown Fort Worth. Mrs. Davis told Glasstire that the vision of the new space, which functioned as an extension of Artspace111, was to show works by Texas-based artists, most of whom were unrepresented by galleries. The space was meant to function as a gallery, a lounge, and a shop with artworks for sale at a range of prices. Being centered in a more frequented part of downtown, Love Texas Art saw a wider range of visitors, including young adults, families, and many people who do not frequent art galleries.

National Gallery Singapore is delighted to announce that for the first time in the country’s history, artists from the Gallery’s collection have been invited to participate in the Main Exhibition of the 60th International Art Exhibition—the Venice Biennale (Biennale Arte 2024), entitled Stranieri Ovunque—Foreigners Everywhere, curated by Adriano Pedrosa.

The eight artworks by Southeast Asian artists will be featured in the “Nucleo Storico” section of the Main Exhibition in a sub-section entitled “Portraits”, which expands the history of modernism beyond Europe and North America by focusing on stories from the Global South, including artists whose trajectories took them across continents and contexts over the tumultuous course of the 20th century. 

With more than 8,000 works, the National Gallery Singapore holds the largest public collection of modern art from Southeast Asia, offering a unique point of departure for transnational curatorial and research efforts that seek to position art from the region as integral to global art histories.

Tate today announced a new initiative dedicated to bringing more work by Indigenous artists into its collection. Building on the success of recent acquisitions and custodianship agreements, this strategy seeks to create a step-change in the number of contemporary artists from Indigenous communities around the world whose work is represented at Tate. 

The programme launches with a four-year commitment from the AKO Foundation to fund acquisitions of Sámi and Inuit art from Northern Europe. This continues the AKO Foundation’s generous support of Tate over recent years, including for the exhibitions Olafur Eliasson (2019), the Turner Prize (2021) and Surrealism Beyond Borders (2022), as well as a programme of events at Tate Modern to coincide with the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in 2021.

For lovers of art and design, it’s perhaps never been a more opportune time to visit Milan. As the trifecta of Design Week, Miart, and the nearby Venice Biennale converge in mid-April, the city’s enviable destinations for art, design, and dining are garnering an outsized spotlight. Yet, as any of the city’s gallerists will tell you, Milan’s myriad cultural gems can be witnessed year-round.

“Milan’s art and design scene has always been vibrant and dynamic, known for its mix of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary innovation,” said Nicolo Cardi, CEO of Milan stalwart Cardi Gallery. Many agree that this blend of old and new, plus its stronghold of various creative industries, is what sets it apart from cities like New York or Paris. “The city’s emphasis on craftsmanship, coupled with a strong focus on fashion and industrial design, creates a unique and dynamic artistic environment that resonates with visitors regardless of the season,” noted Antonio Borghese, director of the city’s ABC-ARTE.
