Opening of Abu Dhabi's Louvre pushed back to 2016
By Stanley Carvalho ABU DHABI (Reuters) - The opening of Abu Dhabi's branch of the iconic Louvre museum has been postponed until next year because building work still needs doing, a senior official said on Saturday, the latest delay to the high-profile project. Majed al Mansoori, chairman of state-owned Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC), said authorities were now aiming for late 2016. "Attention will now turn to the remaining work on the underside of the cladding and the Louvre Abu Dhabi remains on track for opening in the second half of 2016,” he told Reuters by email.

From handles to cyborgs, all up for Turner art prize
By Michael Roddy GLASGOW (Reuters) - This year's Turner Prize nominees range from a collective selling handles, and costlier furnishings, online for 15 pounds ($23) a pop to a video display in which a woman talks about being brainwashed in Kentucky by aliens. Since the British contemporary art prize made a leap into the bizarre by recognizing Damien Hirst's bisected cow and calf in 1995, it has been hard to predict what the judges might include among the finalists. "Artists are interested in engaging in ideas with the public and I think what's exciting about this edition of the Turner Prize is that it feels very now, very of the moment." The winner is announced on Dec. 7.
Damien Hirst unveils his London gallery with John Hoyland show
World-famous artist Damien Hirst is to open his own art space, London's Newport Street Gallery, on October 8, in what is one of biggest art events of the season. In Vauxhall, south London, the new gallery has been a long-gestating passion project for Hirst, whose own art collection of more than 3,000 works forms the basis of the gallery's displays. "I believe art should be experienced by as many people as possible and I've felt guilty owning work that is stored away in boxes where no one can see it, so having a space where I can put on shows from the collection is a dream come true," said Hirst.

Picasso, Van Gogh and God in Italy sacred art show
From Picasso's Christ on the Cross to Van Gogh's Pieta, a new exhibition in Italy reveals the revival and radical revision of sacred art after the Age of Enlightenment, all thanks to a revolutionary pope. The Divine Beauty show in Florence throws fresh light on religious art between the middle of the 19th and 20th centuries, with never-before seen together works in styles ranging from naturalism to symbolism, realism and abstract. "When you think of sacred art you think of works of art up until the Baroque period at most," which makes this exhibition particularly unusual, curator Ludovica Sebregondi told AFP.

Met Opera breaks blackface tradition in 'Otello'
New York's Metropolitan Opera has broken more than a century of tradition in Verdi's "Otello" with a production whose title character, in a reflection of modern racial sensibilities, does not perform in blackface. The 326th performance of the opera, which opened the New York-based opera's 2015-16 season on Monday, stars Latvian tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko. Race-altering makeup has long been taboo in the United States, in which blackface recalls 19th-century minstrel shows and other racist performances, but the practice has persevered in opera.

Dutchman Van Gogh finally meets Norway's Munch
By Yoruk Bahceli AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Norway’s Edvard Munch and Dutch master Vincent Van Gogh lived at the same time and both struggled to put their inner demons on canvas, but they never met in real life. A broad collection of their paintings, which greatly influenced modern 19th-century artwork, will hang side by side for the first time at an exhibit opening at the Van Gogh Museum in the Netherlands opening on Friday. “Through their experiences of suffering and pain as well as their ability to see beauty in the smallest things, they were able to render that personal experience in their art,” said Van Gogh Museum curator Maite van Dijk.
