A Collector’s-Eye View of the Auctions
Twenty-four hours after Adam Lindemann sold a Jean-Michel Basquiat at Christie’s for $57.3 million — an auction record for the artist — he found himself in the role of bidder as selling began for a 1942 Calder standing mobile at Sotheby’s last Wednesday night. He thought the $3 million to $4 million estimate was too low, that the piece was worth $10 million, given that it had once been owned by Alfred H. Barr, founding director of the Museum of Modern Art.

Peter Saul | New York Reviews
ArtForum, Summer 2015
The wonderful exhibition “Peter Saul: From Pop to Punk”—challenging, engrossing, troubling—which consisted of sixteen ambitious paintings and five equally ambitious drawings from the 1960s and ’70s, was woefully mistitled: There was nothing waywardly adolescent about this show, nothing punk, as I understand the meaning of both word and style.

Los Angeles Adds to Growing Art Scene
The art collector Adam Lindemann knew that opening a gallery in the Los Angeles area could be risky. He had seen others try and fail, namely the Pace Wildenstein Gallery, which closed its Beverly Hills location in 1999, and L&M Arts, which shuttered its Venice outpost in 2013.

Critics’ Picks | Raymond Pettibon
ArtForum, May 2014
Raymond Pettibon’s oeuvre of drawings presents its ambivalent attitude to avant-garde resistance by illustrating acts of sexual or violent depravity via mainstream American iconography, produced at an industrial scale and rate of production. The artist’s surfer paintings, with their lurid, ebullient wave renderings and transcendental textual citations, mark a surprising anomaly, spanning nearly thirty decades of work.
