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.

When it comes to exploring Picasso, it would seem there is little left for curators to discover, despite his prodigious output. Right now, there are two major gallery exhibitions, at Gagosian and at Pace, as well as a show of Cubist works including Picasso from the Leonard Lauder collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

But what few people realize is that Picasso’s sculpture is still relatively uncharted territory. The last show devoted to it in this country took place in 1967 at the Museum of Modern Art. B

A Manhattan real estate agent wants answers from his gallerista step-sister on why she hawked a family-owned painting by a renowned abstract artist last year for a measly $375,000 when it re-sold months later for millions.

Cyrus Greenspon claims in court papers that her step-sister's mega-cheap sell-off of their late dad's Ad Reinhardt painting was shady and a conflict of interest — namely because she got her former boss, the president of swanky Pace Gallery, to vouch for its low value and had a friend and former colleague buy it.

In case further proof was needed that Silicon Valley has become an art destination in its own right, Pace Gallery has announced that the pop-up space it opened in Menlo Park last March — and intended to keep open for just three months — will remain open until the end of 2014.  “We’re having too much fun to stop,” Pace president Marc Glimcher told Artinfo on a phone call from California. Located in a former Tesla dealership on the El Camino Real highway, the gallery plans to keep its current Tara Donovan exhibition up until the end of the summer and then mount a cross-generational group exhibition in the fall.

For Glimcher, the project has been a way to get away from gallery business as usual. “It’s a fresh group of people with a great energy,” he said. “They’re really interested in what the artists are trying to accomplish. Conversations here are about the art, the artists, history. A lot less about auctions, art fairs, and prices. The art market is just not that fascinating. It’s very refreshing to talk about the art.”

On Thursday, May 22, “Tara Donovan: Untitled” opened at Pace Gallery’s pop-up in Menlo Park, California. It will be the final exhibition held at the Gallery’s temporary West Coast location. Prior to the Tara Donovan show, Pace presented an exhibition of stabiles, bronzes, standing and hanging mobiles, colorful gouaches, and wearable jewelry by Alexander Calder. Pace, which specializes in contemporary art, has permanent spaces in New York, London, Beijing, and Hong Kong.

“Untitled” surveys work by the Brooklyn-based artist Tara Donovan from 2000 to the present. Donovan is best known for her large-scale installations and sculptures made from manufactured materials, such as Scotch tape, Styrofoam cups, paper plates, toothpicks, and plastic drinking straws. Donovan creates her process-driven works by repeatedly layering a single material until an everyday object is transformed into a complex, otherworldly work of art. Donovan also plays with perceptual phenomenon through light and scale, using a variety of materials and three-dimensional forms to create captivating optical effects.

Steven A. Cohen, a hedge-fund manager and founder of SAC Capital Advisors, will sell works from him impressive art collection in New York later this month. The majority of the sales will be part of Sotheby’s contemporary art evening sale on November 13, but Christie’s will also sell a small portion, estimated to be worth less than $5 million.

The trove headed to Sotheby’s includes works by Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter and Cy Twombly and is estimated to be worth around $85 million. Highlights include Andy Warhol’s portrait of Elizabeth Taylor titled Liz #1 (Early Colored Liz); a 10-by-8-foot canvas by German artist Gerhardt Richter, which was shown by the Pace Gallery at Art Basel in 2012; and a bronze sculpture by Cy Twombly.

Cohen, an avid collector who is active in the market, is bringing this collection to auction after SAC was accused in a grand-jury indictment of encouraging insider trading. The company was told it would have to pay $1.8 billion and admit wrongdoing to resolve securities-fraud charges, including a previous penalty of approximately $600 million.
