The parent organization of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery is the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy, founded in 1862. It is one of the oldest public arts institutions in the United States. In 1890, Buffalo entrepreneur and philanthropist, John J. Albright, a wealthy Buffalo industrialist, began the construction of the Albright Art Gallery for the Academy. The building was designed by prominent local architect Edward Brodhead Green. It was originally intended to be used as the Fine Arts Pavilion for the Pan-American Exposition in 1901, but delays in its construction caused it to remain uncompleted until 1905.

Given the vast number of art pieces on display at the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes exhibition, I think the art gallery needs to recruit a few more guards.

 

First posed by mathematician Victor Klee in 1973, the art gallery problem is a study of visibility in computational geometry. It sets to find out the minimum number of guards needed to guard every point in an art gallery.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of Scotland's most popular attractions. It has been a favourite with Glasgow residents and visitors since it opened in 1901.

 

The museum has 22 themed galleries displaying an astonishing 8000 objects, brought together from across Glasgow Museums’ rich and varied collection, which is a Recognised Collection of National Significance. The displays are extensive and wide-ranging,

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

 

Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki is the principal public gallery in Auckland, New Zealand, and has the most extensive collection of national and international art in New Zealand. It frequently hosts travelling international exhibitions.

 

Set below the hilltop Albert Park in the central-city area of Auckland, the gallery was established in 1888 as the first permanent art gallery in New Zealand.

 

The building originally housed the Auckland Art Gallery as well as the Auckland public library opening with collections donated by benefactors Governor Sir George Grey and James Tannock Mackelvie. This was the second public art gallery in New Zealand opened three years after the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in 1884.

 

The main gallery building was originally designed by Melbourne architects Grainger & D'Ebro to house not only the art gallery but also the City Council offices, lecture theatre and public library. It is constructed of brick and plaster in an early French Renaissance style and was completed in 1887, with an extension built in 1916.[4] It is three storeys high, with an attic in the steep pitched roofs, and a six storey clock tower. The building was registered as a Category I heritage item by Heritage New Zealand on 24 November 1983, listed with registration number 92.

The Saatchi Gallery is a London gallery for contemporary art, opened by Charles Saatchi in 1985 in order to exhibit his collection to the public. It has occupied different premises, first in North London, then the South Bank by the River Thames, and finally in Chelsea, its current location. Saatchi's collection—and hence the gallery's shows—has had distinct phases, starting with US artists and minimalism, moving to the Damien Hirst-led Young British Artists, followed by shows purely of painting, and then returning to contemporary art from America in USA Today at the Royal Academy in London. A 2008 exhibition of contemporary Chinese art formed the inaugural exhibition in the new venue for the gallery at the Duke of York's HQ.

The gallery has been an influence on art in Britain since its opening. It has also had a history of media controversy,[2] which it has actively courted, and has earned extremes of critical reaction. Many artists shown at the gallery are unknown not only to the general public but also to the commercial art world; showing at the gallery has provided a springboard to launch careers.[citation needed]

In 2010, it was announced that the gallery would be given to the British public, becoming the Museum of Contemporary Art for London

ALF LECHNER. KALOTTEN und MAROTTEN

13. März 2016 - 30. April 2017

"Als Kalotte, ein aus dem Französischen stammender Begriff, wird eine Flachkugel bezeichnet, deren Wölbung von einem Kugelabschnitt und nicht von einer Halbkugel gebildet wird, somit ihr Stich geringer ist als der Radius.

Alf Lechners KALOTTEN sind massive, geschmiedete Körper unterschiedlicher Durchmesser und Höhen, welche in einem Raum einzeln, in Gruppierungen oder Formationen am Boden zu liegen kommen. Es drängt sich der Eindruck auf, die Kugelabschnitte seien im Boden versinkende Körper und die Horizontale bilde die Schnittfläche. Vergleichbar Eisbergen, welche nur einen Bruchteil ihres Volumens oberhalb der Wasserfläche preisgeben.

Im Kontrast zu diesen überwiegend flachen Gebilden treten Lechners MAROTTEN, auch ein dem Französischen entlehntes Wort, u.a. Eigentümlichkeit, Laune, fixe Idee umschreibend. Bizarr muten sie an, die dünnwandigen, spitzschrundig rauhen, teils löchrigen, reliefartigen Flächen, die der Künstler in Rahmen spannt - sie derart gleichsam begrenzt-, um sie dann in horizontaler oder vertikaler Ausrichtung in den Raum zu stellen. Ihre Allansichtigkeit ist hervorzuheben, keine Fläche gleicht der anderen. Die Plastizität der Oberflächen bewegt sich in dem Spannungsfeld zwischen z.B. filigraner Fragilität und massiver Kompaktheit oder strömendem Fließen und formender Erstarrung.

Mit dieser Werkgruppe, - zu Lechners Spätwerk gehörend-, führt der Künstler die Perfektion ad absurdum, die üblicherweise sein Werk charakterisiert. Lechners Vision der Entgrenzung technischer Verfahren und Machbarkeit findet Niederschlag in der malerischen Oberflächenfarbigkeit und reliefartigen Plastizität der gerahmten Plastiken alias MAROTTEN."

"The successful result of a joint effort of the Alf Lechner foundation and the city of Ingolstadt, the Lechner Museum opened its doors in 2000. Preserving the building’s industrial structure the former Audi AG workshop was transformed into a functional museum flooded with light. Its streamlined simplicity is in perfect harmony with Lechner’s artistic principles. Time and again, changing exhibitions highlight new facets of the distinguished steel sculptor’s work. Alongside diverse sculptural works, individual exhibitions also showcase the sculptor’s sketches and autonomous graphical artworks. (...)"

"Die Shedhalle aus den 50er-Jahren, in innerstädtischer Lage direkt neben der Altstadt, hatte ursprünglich der Automobil-Produktion, danach unter anderem als Fahrzeughalle, Kantine, Kostümfundus und Probebühne gedient und befand sich in desolatem Zustand. Nach Übernahme durch eine Museumsstiftung verwandelten die Architekten sie mit einfachen Mitteln in ein elegantes Ausstellungsgebäude mit einprägsamer Form. (...)"

The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) (Musée des beaux-arts de l'Ontario) is an art museum in Toronto's Downtown Grange Park district, on Dundas Street West between McCaul Street and Beverley Street.

 

Its collection includes more than 80,000 works spanning the 1st century to the present day. The gallery has 45,000 square metres (480,000 sq ft) of physical space, making it one of the largest galleries in North America.

 

Also famous for Frank Genry's design on breathing fresh air in an old building.

An outing to see the excellent, yet harrowing Exhibition 'the Sensory War 1914-2014' saw us seeking comfort in the gallery's café.
