    THE QUAGMIRE OF VALUE

    Interview with Michal Rovner – Leaving a Permanent Mark

    I met with Michal Rovner at Pace Gallery to see the opening of “Evolution” which is the gallery’s first exhibition of Rovner’s work in Geneva.  The show coincides with the opening of Rovner’s “Dislocation” show at Espace Muraille, also in Geneva, which we went to together afterwards.  Rovner was born in 1957 in Israel, and had a solo show of her video work at the Whitney Museum of America Art in 2002.  She then represented Israel at the Venice Biennale in 2003.  She has been represented by Pace Gallery since 2003.  Rovner is currently working on installations for the public realm at the new Canary Wharf Crossrail station in London.

    How Important is Provenance With Antiques?

    How Important is Provenance With Antiques?

    Ask any high-end antiques dealer about provenance, and they’ll probably say it’s imperative. And, yes, the history of antiques that are very old needs to be researched to assure that the pieces are as old as their owners or dealers say they are. But is provenance necessary beyond 1830—the date designated by an Act of Congress in 1930—and the start of the Industrial Revolution?
