The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation has announced that a trio of high-powered galleries will now represent the estate of the artist worldwide: The Pace Gallery, which has branches in New York, London, Hong Kong, and Beijing; Gallery Thaddeus Ropac, which is situated in Salzburg and Paris, and Galeria Luisa Strina, which is located in the teeming metropolis of Sao Paulo. The news is a shake-up on the gallery circuit since Rauschenberg’s estate has been represented by Gagosian Gallery since the artist’s death in 2008.

In a statement, David White, the Foundation’s senior curator, who had a 30-year working relationship with Rauschenberg, stated: “It was always invigorating to embark on new adventures with Bob and his art.

MoMA will Host Major Magritte Show this Fall

An exhibition organized in collaboration with Houston’s Menil Collection and the Art Institute of Chicago will open on September 28, 2013 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Magritte the Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926-1938 is the first exhibition to focus on the pioneering Surrealist artist René Magritte’s formative years.

Beginning in 1926, Magritte embarked on a quest to “challenge the real world,” which concluded in 1938, just before the outbreak of World War II. Featuring 80 works including paintings, collages, and objects, the exhibition touches on the varying concepts Magritte explored during this time including displacement, transformation, metamorphosis, and representation.

The exhibition, which will be on view through January 12, 2014, will also include a selection of photographs, periodicals, and a number of Magritte’s early commercial works in an effort to convey the artist’s budding identity.
