新西兰新闻秘书处9月6日消息,新西兰著名国际艺术家比利.苹果去世,终年85岁。

 

艺术、文化和遗产部长卡梅尔·塞普洛尼对新西兰最具影响力的艺术家之一比利·苹果的去世表示哀悼。 

今天,我们失去了一个新西兰艺术的巨人。比利是一个有创造力的远见卓识者,一个灵感和朋友这么多,卡梅尔塞普洛尼说。比利是概念艺术的开拓者,也是新西兰最受国际知名的艺术家之一。

比利出生于奥克兰,曾就读于伦敦皇家艺术学院,之后移居纽约担任艺术总监,并进一步发展他独特的风格,成为流行艺术运动的领军人物。 

“他对创意世界的贡献是巨大的。最值得注意的是,他在纽约建立了第一个替代展览空间之一,他称之为苹果,并在1964年美国超市展览会上与安迪·沃霍尔合作。比利于1990年以空白石板的身份回到新西兰,将他的创作精力集中在艺术和商业的交汇点上。 

苹果的作品继续享用全球,在Te Papa、泰特英国、苏格兰国家现代艺术画廊、费城艺术博物馆、克莱斯勒艺术博物馆和古根海姆博物馆收藏。 比利留下了独特而持久的遗产,他的损失将在世界各地感受到,尤其是在奥特罗亚,他的家。我的想法是与比利的合作伙伴玛丽,以及他的整个家庭和每一个谁知道和爱比利”艺术文化和遗产部长卡梅尔.塞普洛尼说。

Aotearoa mourns passing of creative icon Billy Apple
 Arts, Culture and Heritage Minister Carmel Sepuloni has expressed her condolences at the passing of Billy Apple, one of New Zealand’s most influential artists.
 
“Today we’ve lost a giant of New Zealand art. Billy was a creative visionary, an inspiration and a friend to so many,” Carmel Sepuloni said. “Billy was a trailblazer in conceptual art and one of New Zealand’s most internationally celebrated artists.”
 
Born in Auckland, Billy studied at the at the Royal College of Arts in London before moving to New York to take up work as an arts director and further develop his unique style, becoming a leading figure in the pop art movement.
 
His contributions to the creative world are vast. Most notably, he established one of the first alternative exhibition spaces in New York, which he called ‘Apple’, as well as partnering with Andy Warhol on the 1964 American Supermarket exhibition. Billy returned to New Zealand in 1990 as a ‘blank slate’, focussing his creative energies on the intersections of art and commerce.  
 
Apple’s work continues to be enjoyed worldwide, with collections at Te Papa, the Tate Britain, Scottish National Galleries of Modern Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Chrysler Museum of Art and Guggenheim Museum.
 
“Billy leaves a distinctive and enduring legacy, and his loss will be felt the world over, but particularly here in Aotearoa, his home. My thoughts are with Billy’s partner Mary, as well as his entire family and everyone who knew and loved Billy,” Carmel Sepuloni said.
