The Headlines

STARMAN.  The  Wende Museum  in Los Angeles is currently showing  rarely seen photographs  that  Geoff MacCormack  took while traveling across the Soviet Union in 1973 with  David Bowie , riding the Trans-Siberian Express and spending a couple days in Moscow. The  Los Angeles Times  has published a few of those images— they are delightful —along with commentary by MacCormack, who said that, despite being told not to photograph certain places, “We took photographs and film of lots of stuff. Probably because we were stupid and didn’t know the real consequences of our actions.” Speaking of the late superstar, the  Guardian   has an interview  with the painter  Peter Howson , who said that, when his art about the Bosnian War was generating controversy in the U.K. in the 1990s, “I ended up having to go on to the radio and explain it. But then that thing happened with David Bowie buying the main painting.”

HUMAN RESOURCES.   Pace Gallery   has hired   Laura Attanasio  away from Berlin’s  König Galerie , where she is a partner, to lead a new office in the city,  Alex Greenberger  reports in  ARTnews . Attanasio joined König in 2014, and she has worked with artists like  Alicja Kwade  and  Katharina Grosse . ● Former  Artforum  editor-in-chief and  Kitchen  director  Tim Griffin  was  named executive director  of the Los Angeles opera producer the  Industry , which was started in 2010,  Artforum  reports. The group’s co-artistic directors are  Malik Gaines ,  Ash Fure , and founder  Yuval Sharon . ● The  Phoenix Art Museum  and the  University of Arizona Center for Creative Photography   tapped   Emilia Mickevicius  to be assistant curator of photography, a position shared by the institutions. She’s been an  SFMOMA  curatorial assistant since 2019, per  ArtDaily .

The Digest

London’s  Simon Lee Gallery  and artist  Sonia Boyce , who  won a Golden Lion  at the 2022  Venice Biennale , are no longer working together. Neither gave a reason. The gallery has reportedly been involved in a tax dispute that Lee told  The Art Newspaper  “has now been resolved.”  [TAN]

While the estate of the late  Microsoft  cofounder  Paul Allen  has been offloading his art and real estate in accordance with his desire to give most of his fortune to charity, his sports teams—the  NFL ’s  Seattle Seahawks  and the  NBA ’s  Portland Trail Blazers —have remained off the market, frustrating would-be suitors.  [The Wall Street Journal]

The  Bezos Learning Center  at the  National Air and Space Museum  in Washington, D.C., will be designed by  Perkins&Will , whose projects have included the  Shanghai Natural History Museum  and the  University of Minnesota Bell Museum  in St. Paul. Much of the funding is coming from Jeff Bezos’s $200 million gift to the  Smithsonian .  [Press Release/Smithsonian Institution]

The bar from the television series  Cheers  (1982–93) went for $675,000 at  Heritage Auctions  in Dallas on Sunday. It was offered as part of a sale of classic TV material collected by  James Comisar  that totaled more than $5 million.  [The Associated Press]

The venerable Manhattan appetizing shop  Zabar’s  has said that it is caring for the last remaining  Banksy  on public view in New York, which is near its Upper West Side storefront. One ardent Banksy fan claims it has not been doing so, and he has been cleaning it himself, sparking a true “only in New York” dispute.  [The New Yorker]

The  Serpentine Gallery  in London has unveiled its annual  Serpentine Pavilion , which was designed by the Lebanese-born architect  Lina Ghotmeh , who is based in Paris.  [Dezeen]

The Kicker

ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE.  In 1967, artists  Peter Blake  and  Jann Haworth , who were then married, got the commission of a lifetime: The cover for the  Beatles  album  Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band . But as Haworth  tells it in an interview  with the  Financial Times , she did not have any special passion for the project. “They were a white boy band,” she said. “I wasn’t that interested in that music.” She added, “It’s just a record cover and I don’t think that’s very important.” Many Beatles fans would, of course, disagree. In any case, her latest commission, a mural with her daughter  Liberty Blake , will go on view at the  National Portrait Gallery  in London later this month.  [FT] shares always this Contents with License.
