Artes Mundi, an international art organization based in Cardiff, Wales, has awarded the Artes Mundi 5 International Art prize to Mexican artist Teresa Margolles. The panel of judges, made up of seven respected international curators and chaired by Tim Marlow (director of exhibitions at White Cube, London), chose Margolles from a short list of seven international artists to receive the $64,000 prize—the largest cash prize in the United Kingdom.
The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) has reattributed a painting, originally believed to be the work of Hudson Valley School artist Asher B. Durand and called In the Woods, to another 19th-century American landscape painter, George Inness. The museum has also renamed the painting Stream in the Mountain to better reflect Inness's titles for other works.
The Albright-Knox Gallery, in Buffalo, N.Y., has contracted Manhattan- and Oslo-based architecture, landscape and interior design collaborative Snøhetta to develop a long-term plan for growth.
The gallery was last expanded in 1962 and needs space for its large and ever-expanding modern and contemporary art collections. "We urgently need to examine how our existing space is used to display, store, and conserve the collection, and to optimize our facilities to provide an enhanced experience for our visitors," said board of directors president Leslie Zemsky, implying that the gallery will not build an extension in the near future. However, the Albright-Knox will consider an expansion as part of its long-term plan.
