Frieze Week NYC ’14: Frieze Art Fair (Part 2)

Last week, we brought you a first look at some of the amazing works of art at this year’s Frieze New York. But an art fair such as Frieze contains too many notable pieces—such as Danh Vo’s installation Massive Black Hole in the Dark Heart of Our Milky Way (pictured above)—to be shown in just one post. So, we’ve returned with part 2, which includes images of works by Yayoi Kusama, Ed Ruscha, George Condo, Jonas Wood and Jeff Elrod, among many others. Discuss Frieze […]

Openings: “Sunsets & Pussy” @ Marianne Boesky

Last week, Marianne Boesky Gallery put together a hot (NSFW) group show just in time for the warm weather to hit New York City. Entitled Sunsets & Pussy, this show brings together three generations of artists – Ed Ruscha, Lucien Smith, Betty Tompkins and Piotr Uklański. Each artist contributed works that explored two classic themes of summer wonder. Some tongue in cheek and some a little more subtle, this showcase features some interesting and creative take on the creative theme. Check out a NSFW look below.

The Water Tank Project (New York)

If Tom Fruin’s Watertower installation in Brooklyn is any indication, having artwork tower over art lovers in New York can make the cityscape a lot more interesting. Something that might do just that (as evidenced by these mock-up photos) is the proposed Water Tank Project, except instead of a new structure, existing water tanks (twelve feet high, thirteen feet in diameter) in NYC will be used as canvases for public art. Scheduled for the Summer of 2013, artwork from artists and notables like Jeff Koons, Ed Ruscha, Jose Parla, Catherine […]
