拉丁美洲專輯(III)-藝術市場尚在海外革命的熱帶古巴—專訪紐約Magnan Metz畫廊


拉美藝術近年來在美國學術、市場強力發燒,有多燙燒? 從新美術館(New Museum)在2月開展的第二屆三年展「不受控」(The Ungovernables:2012 New Museum Triennial)中即可看出端倪,參展的50多位藝術家中拉美藝術家所佔比例就超過百分之二十;MoMA推出的墨西哥壁畫國寶藝術家「里維拉壁畫展」(Diego Rivera: Murals for The Museum of Modern Art)自去年延燒至今,本月雀兒喜畫廊群中亦有:Sean Kelly 畫廊推出巴西藝術家Iran do Espírito Santo;Paul Kasmin畫廊展出智利光雕大師Iván Navarro;Margaret Thatcher Projects畫廊展出墨西哥藝術家Carlos Estrada-Vega…等,充分看出拉美藝術在美國藝市廣受熱情對待。因此,感應市場快速變遷、做為藏家的眼與手、站在市場前哨的畫廊急促相湧的投身拉美,但拉丁美洲涵蓋20個獨立國家,其個別歷史與文化豐富亦複雜的交織,若無國籍身分關聯或者長期研究,拉美藝術的大門絕非人人皆可輕易進入。位於紐約雀兒喜畫廊群中,專注代理潛力拉美藝術家的Magnan Metz 畫廊,由古巴籍阿爾貝多.馬格南(Alberto Magnan)與美籍達菈.馬茲(Dara Metz)夫婦於2005年創立,本篇專訪針對代理拉美藝術家的選擇策略、拉美藝術在美國藝市的發展與現狀以及拉美與美國藏家的比較等經驗分享,以下為馬格南夫婦共同受訪內容。

Latin American Issue(III)- Tropical Cuba, An Art Market Still Hustling Overseas: Interview with Magnan Metz Gallery, New York

Latin American art is hot. In the US academia and market in recent years, it has been getting so hot that it sizzles. This trend was reflected at “The Ungovernables,” the second triennial exhibition at the New Museum. The exhibition opened in February with more than twenty percent of the fifty-plus participating artists being Latin Americans. Also, MoMA is showcasing works by Mexico's most celebrated mural artist in “Diego Rivera: Murals for The Museum of Modern Art,” which has been a hot topic since last year. Many galleries in Chelsea, New York represent artists from the region this month as well, for example Brazilian artistIran do Espírito Santo at Sean Kelly Gallery, Chilean light sculpture artist Iván Navarro at Paul Kasmin Gallery,Mexican-born artist Carlos Estrada-Vega atMargaret Thatcher Projects, etc.All of this indicates that Latin American art has been treated enthusiastically in the US art market. Serving as radar for art collectors and an outpost in the market, art galleries sensed the winds of change and plunged into Latin American art. However,there are about twenty independent states in Latin America, each with its own history and culture inextricably intertwined with another in rich and complex ways. Without connections with the country, for example citizenship or long-term research experience, it is difficult to delve into the world of Latin American art. Among the galleries in Chelsea is Magnan Metz Gallery, which seeks to represent up-and-coming Latin American artists. The Gallery was founded in 2005 by Alberto Magnan, of Cuban origin, and his wife Dara Metz. In this exclusive interview, topics will cover strategies for representing Latin American artists, the status quo and outlook of Latin American art in the US art market, and comparison and contrast of collectors from Latin America and the US. The following is a transcript of the interview with the Mr. & Mrs. Magnan.
