On May 24, following the marquee modern and contemporary auctions in New York, Sotheby’s will offer the Collection of Amy & Elliot Lawrence. Beginning in the 1950s, the Lawrence’s formed a quintessentially American collection of pre-modern sculpture including classical African, Oceanic, and American Indian art, as well as Pre-Columbian, Southeast Asian, and classical Antiquities. Amy was a scholar, teacher, and therapist; Elliot was a famous bandleader in the late 40s and 50s, who went on to have a legendary career as a music director in TV and film. Together the Lawrence’s explored the world through collecting and assembled an eclectic but harmonious group of objects around the grand piano in their apartment on Central Park West.

The Dakar Biennale, or Dak'Art - Biennale de l'Art Africain Contemporain, is a major contemporary art exhibition that takes place once every two years in Dakar, Senegal. The Dakar Biennale was conceived in 1989 as a biennale alternating between literature and art. The biennale has been created thanks to the will of both the Senegalese state which assumes the supervision and the local artists who since the seventies, have been organising regular annual art exhibitions which bring to light the different shapes of the evolution of contemporary art creation. The aim was to make of it a show-window of art and literature in Africa.
