On view through tomorrow in Hong Kong at the local Gagosian in Central is Sterling Ruby’s show VIVIDS, his first with the gallery.

Kate Moss, who has been a muse for many an artist, was recently decked out in new Sterling Ruby painted parkas and photographed for AnOther Magazine. The paint-splattered limited edition garments, which would apparently cost you about the price of a car, are part of Dior creative director Raf Simons’ Fall/Winter 2014 collection. You can see the rest of the collaborative effort between Ruby and Simons here. Photo credit: Willy Vanderperre / AnOther Magazine (via Supertouch). Discuss Sterling Ruby here.
Keeping things going, we have another Rewind summary for you this week. First up is origami artist Sipho Mabona, who recently folded a life-sized elephant from a since giant sheet of paper. He and his team of nearly a dozen people worked over four weeks to create the 10 foot tall sculpture. Financed through Indiegogo, the crowd funded project is now on view at KKLB in Beromünster, Switzerland. Check out the video below and more photos at My Modern Met.

With a booth containing sculptures by two of the hottest artists working today – David Altmejd and Sterling Ruby and large-scale pieces by Wolfgang Tillmans, Andrea Rosen Gallery’s booth at Art Basel didn’t need to do much further to stand apart from the others at the Art Basel fair, but stand out it did. With a small room dedicated to work by the late Felix Gonzalez-Torres whom the gallery is showing at their New York location in a couple of days, Rosen made its booth […]
Sprüth Magers – based out of Berlin and London – certainly brought back to the states work by some of America’s best artists. Their booth included a prominent sculpture by Sterling Ruby, a painting by artist-of-the-hour George Condo (whose paintings seemed to be everywhere at the fair this year), a photo by Cindy Sherman, a large text-based installation by Jenny Holzer, instantly-recognizable John Baldessari and Barbara Kruger pieces, and a painting by Jeff Koons. See them for yourself after the jump… More after the jump…
As previewed by AM, Prism opened Misericordia last Friday night to a excited and fashionable Los Angeles crowd. The show featured the excellent curatorial (the show was curated by Birte Kleemann, Director at The Pace Gallery) quality you expect from Prism and included pieces by some of the best artists working today, like Terence Koh, Sterling Ruby, and Chris Burden, alongside some works that were hundreds of years old. The exploration of Mercy never looked so interesting. More opening images after the jump…
