Art in Review: Most-talked-about stories in Art, Design Fashion, and Performing Arts, May 21-25, 2012:

Art in Review: Alanna Martinez concluded her essential reading list of 40 books that ever artist should own (part 1, part 2), recommending classics by Pierre Bourdieu, Susan Sontag, and Wassily Kandinsky.

Art in Review: Damien Hirst‘s exhibition of new paintings at White Cube Bermondsey took an exceptionally fierce critical beating, even by his standards.

Art in Review: Another British art star appeared over-extended, as Anish Kapoor‘s two new exhibitions at Gladstone Gallery in New York seemed to signal creative exhaustion — understandable, given the sculptor’s monumental tower for the London Olympics.

Art in Review: The sale of the Gunter Sachs collection at Sotheby’s in London exceeded expectations for a total of £35,628,250 ($56,353,203), thanks in part to Allen Jones‘s creepy-sexy sculptures, but mostly on the strength of the German playboy’s Warhol trove.

Art in Review:  Shane Ferro delved into the murky and emerging niche industry of firms that insure valuable artworks against restitution should they turn out to have been stolen.

DESIGN FASHION

Priscilla Chan — the new Mrs. Mark Zuckerbergbecame an overnight fashion star after a photo her hubby posted on his social network of his bride in her Claire Pettibone (daughter of artist Raymond) wedding dress notchned north of a million likes.

Art in Review: Kelly Chan argued for the value of oft-disparaged Brutalist architecture, while two hulking concrete theaters by John M. Johansen faced down wrecking balls.

Art in Review:  Ann Binlot and Nate Freeman perused the fashion offerings from the Cannes Film Festival‘s many, many red carpets, including serial changer Jessica Chastain, show-stealer Asia Argento, and Shia LaBeouf‘s inappropriate facial hair.

Art in Review: Young star painter Allison Schulnik revealed her must-have outfits and accessories, most of which involve cats.

Art in Review: Chloe Wyma sat catwalk-side during K8 Hardy‘s riotous fashion show at the 2012 Whitney Biennial.

PERFORMING ARTS

— J. Hoberman reviewed Wes Anderson‘s latest film, “Moonrise Kingdom,” calling it “a kinder, gentler, altogether more soulful ‘Pee-Wee’s Playhouse.’”

— Nate Freeman was on the scene during experimental performance space The Kitchen‘s annual gala, where composer Steve Reich and artist Joan Jonas were honored.

— Patrick Pacheco interviewed Tom Meehan, the librettist behind “Annie,” “The Producers,” and “Hairspray,” about his forthcoming (and rather dramatic) Charlie Chaplin musical, which opens on Broadway in the fall.

— “Moon” director Duncan Jones announced that he’ll be helming an action-packed biopic of James Bond author Ian Fleming — just as the trailer for the new Sam Mendes-directed 007 flick, “Skyfall,” was released.

— The Western film genre made a huge comeback, as Quentin Tarantino screened a few minutes of “Django Unchained“ at Cannes, Tom Cruise signed on for a “Magnificient Seven” remake, and Natalie Portman took the lead in “Jane Got a Gun.”

VIDEO

— Renowned stage director and set designer Robert Wilson discussed his video art series “Video Portraits,” which will play on Times Square‘s jumbotrons every night until the end of May.
