James Kalm endures drenching rain to bring viewers a brief glimpse of "Jasper Johns Drawings 1997-2007". As perhaps the most recognized living American artist, every aspect of his enigmatic work is unique and engaging. Since his emergence in the late 1950s he has maintained a prolific practice of drawing, using unusual technique and materials to both develop new ideas and reexamine old ones. This show, which piggy-backs "Gray" at the Metropolitan Museum, is an opportunity to see the developments of Johns' current thinking.
James Kalm accompanies viewers through an historic retrospective exhibition of paintings by Jasper Johns. Gray, perhaps the most ubiquitous and miss perceived of all colors is the theme of this major presentation. Johns has exploited the coloristic and metaphoric potentials of this tone since he emergence as one of America's most recognizable talents. Covering nearly fifty years of painting "Gray" was organized by the Art Institute of Chicago, and sponsored by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
James Kalm reports on Jasper Johns An Allegory of Painting, 1955-1965 at the National Gallery of Art. In this exclusive report Kalm brings you footage of this exhibition by America's greatest living painter.

White Cube was set up by Jay Jopling in 1993 as a project room for contemporary art. Although it was one of the smallest exhibition spaces in Europe, it was arguably one of most influential commercial galleries of the past decade. Situated on the second floor of 44 Duke Street, St James’s, one of London’s most traditional art dealing streets, White Cube, Duke Street was, literally, a simple white cube, a room within a room, designed by the architect Claudio Silvestrin.
The central concern when establishing the programme was to create an intimate space in which an artist could present a single important work of art or a coherent body of work within a focused environment, an idea that in some way, stemmed from the memorable experience of Walter de Maria’s ‘Earth Room’ in New York. The programme was singular among commercial galleries in that an artist was invited to exhibit only once. Since its inception, the gallery mounted exhibitions of work by many leading international and British artists including Franz Ackermann, Miroslaw Balka, Chuck Close, Tracey Emin, Katharina Fritsch, Mona Hatoum, Damien Hirst, Gary Hume, Ellsworth Kelly, Julie Mehretu, Doris Salcedo, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Luc Tuymans and Jeff Wall. White Cube, Duke Street closed in 2002.

For hours, days or even months at a time, renowned German printmaker Christiane Baumgartner can be found painstakingly carving still-life images into enormous blocks of wood. Using a sharp knife, every detail is cut by hand before printing onto handmade paper.
The images Christiane uses are taken from her own film and video cameras and then frozen in time onto the wood in her shared studio, a former cotton mill, in Leipzig, the home of traditional printmaking.

Sigmar Polke: History of Everything showcases Polke’s work over the last six years. The exhibition was initiated by the Dallas Museum of Art, and organised in close collaboration with the artist. Polke made several new works in response to the original Dallas venue, such as paintings of shooting arcades and gun sellers which refer to the renowned gun culture of the American West. Other works make references to the role of America in global politics, perhaps reflecting that the current leader of the world’s dominant superpower, George Bush, is himself from Texas. Notions of perception and the authenticity of images, and the boundaries between abstraction and figuration are also explored throughout the exhibition.
The presentation at Tate Modern also includes a significant number of works made specifically for London. These range from new examples of his ‘Machine Painting’ technique, to recent paintings using imagery from newspapers and magazines. Polke’s characteristically ironic sense of humour is evident in two large paintings that show images of nudist colonies, where naked men and women cavort in the countryside. These works seem to be a witty reflection upon Britain’s ambivalent attitude to sex.
Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden, Germany is showing a large retrospective of German artist Sigmar Polke. Sigmar Polke (born 1941) is one of the most important artists of postwar Germany. The huge exhibition at the Frieder Burda Museum in Baden-Baden combines the three major Sigmar Polke collections of Frieder Burda, Josef Froehlich and Reiner Speck. With its 170 paintings, "Polke - a retrospective. The collections of Frieder Burda, Josef Froehlich, Reiner Speck" is one of the most comprehensive retrospectives that has been organized for many years. Polke -- a retrospective: the collections Frieder Burda, Josef Froehlich, Reiner Speck". Museum Frieder Burda, February 3, 2007 to May 13, 2007. Impressions from the opening, February 2, 2006.

While other artists paint with brushes, light, or sounds, American artist Wade Guyton (born in Hammond, Indiana in 1972) paints with an inkjet printer. For his exhibition at Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Germany, Wade Guyton uses canvases with a width of 1.75 meters.

It’s amazing that you can become one of the leading artists of your generation by messing with the limits of a home-office printer. That’s what 37-year-old artist Wade Guyton has managed to do ink-wise in the past decade.Guyton’s early “drawings,” from around 2003, when he started incorporating a desktop printer, are filled with striking black Xs over ripped-out sheets from ’60s design books and interior catalogues. The color black and the letter x became signature motifs. So did flames (even an ongoing black-markered series of Firestarter book covers), the letter u, MarcelBreuer chairs (he twisted a few into disfigured metal sculptures), circles, and lined grids. At some point, Guyton jumped from paper to linen, running—or rather, pulling—gigantic swathes of fabric through the ink-jet printer while it reads from a computer file. Guyton lets the printer cause the aberrations and pattern glitches that run across his muddy canvas. He’s a longtime collaborator with friend and fellow artist Kelley Walker. As GuytonWalker, they’ve utilized Guyton’s skill for printer practices with Walker’s screen-printing and color techniques. This summer, the team is in charge of filling the first room of the Daniel Birnbaum-curated Pallazo delle Esposizioni at the Venice Biennale. They’ve printed scanned bananas and SoCal beach colors on canvases and slabs of drywall. Photographer and longtime friend David Armstrong went to Guyton’s Midtown studio for this interview, where they spoke about art and Guyton’s fallback trade: the mass extermination of chipmunks.
