The Headlines

THE TOP JOB.  The  Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía  in Madrid  has a new leader , curator  Manuel Segade , the  Art Newspaper  reports. He is currently the director of the  Museo Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo  in the Spanish capital; his curatorial credits include helming Spain’s pavilion at the 2017  Venice Biennale , which featured a solo show by  Jordi Colomer . The Reina Sofía’s previous director,  Manuel Borja-Villel , abruptly stepped down in January, after 15 years at the helm of the museum; he is co-curating the next  Bienal de São Paulo . Borja-Villel had presented an acclaimed, progressive program at the institution that faced criticism from some right-wing outlets. Shortly after his departure, many artists and academics  signed an open letter  in his support.

HITTING PAUSE.  The  National Gallery of Australia  has  postponed an exhibition  of work by Indigenous artists, pending an investigation into the creation of those pieces, the  Sydney Morning Herald  reports. The art in the show is to come from the  APY Art Centre Collective . Back in April, the museum said that it was  looking into allegations  reported in the press that white studio assistants with the collective had altered art by artists there in order to make it more marketable. The collective has denied those claims and said in a statement that “we are content to wait for the independent panel to make their findings.” The show was supposed to open this month and run into October. Government officials in the country have also launched an investigation.

The Digest

Hauser & Wirth  has added to its roster the revered sculptor  Barbara Chase-Riboud ,  Alex Greenberger  reports. She will show at the mega-gallery’s forthcoming location in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood when it opens in October.  [ARTnews]

Members of  Italy ‘s government are mulling a plan to reduce the country’s import duty on art from 10 percent to 5.5 percent. If adopted, the move could cut into the art market in  France , which currently applies a 5.5 percent rate, the lowest in the  European Union .  [The Art Newspaper]

Climate protesters demonstrated outside a major  MoMA  fundraising event last night, calling on the museum to cut ties with its board chair,  Marie-Josée Kravis , because  KKR —the private equity firm cofounded by her husband,  Henry Kravis —has a major stake in the controversial  Coastal GasLink Pipeline .  [ARTnews]

Speaking of board chairs,  Robert W. Lovelace  has been named the next chair of the  J. Paul Getty Trust ’s board of trustees. Lovelace is vice chair and president of the finance-focused  Capital Group Companies ; he has been on the Getty’s board since 2016.  [Press Release/Getty Center]

Artist  Larry Achiampong  currently has a show at the  Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art  in Gateshead, England, and got the profile treatment in the  Financial Times . Some of his work draws on video games, and he said, “Games are just like a piece of literature, and they can sit with you, and become timeless.”  [FT]

Artists  Margot DeMarco  and  Grace Miceli ’s 350-square-foot Manhattan home got a close-up in  Architectural Digest . They’ve both decorated elements of the rental, with DeMarco creating design pieces and Miceli handling painting.  [Clever/Architectural Digest]

The Kicker

POWER PLAYERS.  In the  New York Times ,  Robin Pogrebin  has a story about  how the job of art-museum director has changed  in recent years, with leaders grappling with unionization efforts, social-justice pushes, climate protests (see above), and a great deal more. But while they are facing new pressures, much in the field remains the same, the art historian  Claire Bishop  argued. “Zero has changed structurally,” Bishop told the paper. “The director’s job is to extract as much money as possible from the ultrawealthy, while reassuring them that their values and collection remain secure and unthreatened.”  [NYT] shares always this Contents with License.
