Harmony Korine (writer of Kids, writer and director of Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy, Trash Humpers and Spring Breakers) is having an art exhibit at the Park Avenue Gagosian Gallery this May. Here is a preview: Blue Checker (2014), from “Shooters.” We have collectively decided that this is a Magic Eye painting with a person sitting on another person’s shoulders in it and the […]

Last night, the West 21st Street Gagosian Gallery started shipping out their Richard Serra installation. This meant that the throngs of people leaving opening receptions for bars and subways encountered a giant, famous slab of steel, strapped to a flatbed truck. Holy shit, you guys, Inside Out (2013) is outside! ANIMAL checked in on the truck this morning. […]

Art’s not dead, but it has left Gagosian. We tried but we can’t keep ignoring the “performance art” piece that Madonna bestowed on the upper crust of celebrity this week. The Gagosian Gallery — misreported as the MoMA — hosted the racial/social/artistic fiasco for the premiere of Madonna’s film project that I refuse to hashtag. Madonna, singing […]

Gagosian Gallery’s upcoming group exhibition in London “The Show Is Over” features 35 artists, 34 of whom are male. That’s 97% male, a sausage fest! In fact, it’s 2% sausagier than the Met’s Modern Art section in 1989, according to the Guerrilla Girl’s “weenie count.” That sort of gender disparity on behalf of the curator is too […]

Good news for the 44 Pratt students who lost work in a fire this past February. The Gagosian Gallery is giving them an exhibition! It is likely a transparent PR move by the Gagosian, but at the same time, a gesture that is hard to ignore, as is the uncomfortably borderline ironic name: “Flameproof.” The exhibit will […]

Last week, iCNN “reported” that the Gagosian Gallery is going to exhibit the work of former president George W. Bush. The dogs. The naked bathroom lamentations. Etc. While the internet murmured with displeasure and incredulity, we reassured you that it wasn’t really happening. Looks like the Great Gagosian Trollage of 2013 isn’t over, for a Facebook page for […]

“CNN” recently reported that Larry Gagosian will host an exhibition of George W. Bush’s paintings, a source of fascination, dogs and naked George W. Bush. Only, it wasn’t really reported by CNN, but its citizen journalist initiative iReport and this article is not vetted. A “mock flyer” of American Legacy the exhibit was “anonymously leaked online […]

Damien Hirst’s Spot Paintings have been relentlessly hated on by my art blogger comrades, so, for purely empirical purposes, I decided to go to see them in person and… uhh… be open to them. But first, I had to somehow purge myself of anger and that unceasing belief that Mr. Hirst is kind of a […]

Back in 2008, ingenious plagiarist, snatch decorator, and hobbyist drug counselor Damien Hirst declared that he shall no longer be making candy-color dot paintings. Panic ensued. In a 2-day Sotheby’s grab-a-thon, 21,000 visitors swiftly rushed to buy up hundreds of Hirst-works for $200.7 million (cha-ching), especially those rare, extinct dots because there isn’t going to […]

“I think the Japanese male sexual complex originated in the two-dimensional world,” says super-flat superstar Takashi Murakami, proclaiming himself the inventor of three-dimensional, life-size renderings of anime-style cultural sex objects. This time, he had collaborating sculptor BOME make him a fiberglass, baby-faced trollop toppling from her vast, disproportionate boobage, based on the manga of Seiji […]
