Abbreviated Pundit Round-up: The election picture becomes clearer

xTrump is golfing today, per pool report. Really am a bit surprised by this. He's petrified of getting tarred as uncaring about a Hurricane. And yet has spent the past few days at campaign rallies, with Kanye, and now this.— Sam Stein (@samstein) October 14, 2018 The WaPo had a series of excellent stories yesterday and today. It all fits with the idea of a House victory and blue wave (the Senate is another story). Michael Scherer and Robert Costa/WaPo: In Trump country, Republican candidates this year fall flat A number of Republicans running for governor or senator in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania, including several who hitched their wagon to Trump’s political movement, are behind in polls by double digits, a remarkable turnabout in swing states that were key to the president’s 2016 victory. Scott Clement and Dan Balz/WaPo: Voters say they are more likely to cast ballots in this year’s midterm elections Enthusiasm is up across almost all demographic groups, but the increases are greater among younger adults, nonwhite voters and those who say they favor Democrats for the House.

Boris Anastassievitch’s Retrospective at Magen H Gallery, New York

Magen H Gallery presents the first retrospective of Boris Anastassievitch’s oeuvre in the United States, from November 1, through December 21, 2018.The exhibition features more than 40 works spanning the full breadth of his career. Anastassievitch’s dynamic steel sculptures are juxtaposed with a selection of his monotypes and drawings along with a publication overviewing his career.Born in Isere, France, Boris Anastassievitch devoted himself to drawing and clay modeling from a very early age. He graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and presented his works for the first time at Galerie Roger, Lyon in 1946. With the critical acclaim it received, the exhibition, which was originally intended to last one week, lasted a month.“Following this milestone, Boris became acquainted with Ossip Zadkine in 1947 and began tirelessly experimenting in his studio as his student at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere. Encouraging his students to experiment with materials such as wood, plaster, stone, and terracotta, Zadkine taught his students to interpret sculpture for their pure form and to shift focus away from Naturalism. Through this discipline, Boris discovered a new relationship between plane and space and eventually liberated himself to pursue his own artistic path,” the gallery writes.After moving to Belgrade with his wife, Boris’ works shifted from Cubist influences to expressing the physical properties of materials and the way the forms interact with light and space. “Unlike his earlier work, which was inspired by figures and everyday life made from terracotta and stone, his later works embodied curved planes of metal and transparent Altuglas, which appeared to design the void and occupy space in a poetic and balanced way. With light passing through and bouncing off the material, the ellipsoidal form no longer had a back or a front, but became an endless extension of the space. Boris invited the viewer to not only appreciate the form itself but to also consider space as material in harmony with the sculpture,” the gallery says.This retrospective at Magen H Gallery will present Boris’ masterful combination of light, space, and form. The exhibition will focus on the interplay between sculpture and space, bringing out the inherent versatility of form in Boris’ oeuvre that transcends material boundaries.The exhibition will be on view from November 1, through December 21, 2018, at Magen H Gallery, 54 East 11th Street, NY 10003For more information, visit: http://www.magenxxcentury.com/Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.http://www.blouinartinfo.com/                                Founder: Louise Blouin
