Three Notes from Art Comments

Next week Larry Gagosian is opening a new gallery in Rome with a Cy Twombly show.

Sadly, the London based contemporary art gallery Emily Tsingou is closing shop December 22nd.

Art Basel and Design Miami are seriously considering an additional fair in Bejing, obviously a smart move if they decide to move in that direction. RĂ©nee Sham, chief executive, of MCH Messe Schweiz is quoted on as saying, "We cannot simply replicate Art Basel directly for Asia because the Asian market is still at a very developing phase and the art market is so demand-driven and there is already a shortage of quality artwork. But certainly features of our franchise, adapted to the state of the Asian market, is now possible with Design Miami."
