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. Rénee 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."
