William Eggleston, Nan Goldin, Ryan McGinley, Martin Parr, Terry Richardson, and Stephen Shore — under one roof, on one exhibition bill, with all new work. How?! Turns out, it was pretty simple: #swag. Vice has the full interview with curator Ken Miller who organized the show, which opens tomorrow at Aperture Foundation, after Fujifilm approached […]

Starting January the 9th, you may enjoy the ambient Icelandic sounds of Sigur Rós and the visuals of Ryan McGinley — the New York photographer best known for putting attractive naked crotches next to sparklers and dangerous animals — right there in your taxi! Watch a thinly-dressed girl bouncing in slow-motion through traffic on New York’s most recognizable streets and highways. Her sparkly yellow […]

This latest collaborative arty vid “Varúð” from Sigur Rós does not feature Shia LaBeouf’s penis. What it has is a young girl skipping in a wig around on the High Line and in the middle of Chinatown streets, donning a shiny shiny wig. Then, all the things but her stop. Repeat. Again. […]

Ryan McGinley’s ongoing series of nudes and critters is up now at New York’s Team Gallery. If you’re not impressed with his placyful juxtaposition of bodies, animals and candy-color backgrounds, at least be impressed with his assistants’ ability to wrangle a tiny clawed monkey perched atop a model’s junk without major damage. […]

Photographer Ryan McGingley’s latest additions are a continuation of his glossy themes — same adventurous tits, fireworks and flying taints — yet… it isn’t provoking my irritable banter syndrome, what gives? It’s almost scientific how these bright hues and jiggling shapes are smooshing up harmoniously, albeit artificially. A tad too much saturation there, Ry, that […]

That far-fetched copyright lawsuit against Ryan McGinley and his alleged biting of 150 of photos from photog Janine Gordon has been dismissed as expected, as per the judge’s decision (PDF) — “the dictates of good eyes and common sense lead inexorably to the conclusion that there is no substantial similarity between Plaintiff’s works and the […]

Photographer Janine “Jah Jah” Gordon is suing Ryan McGinley and Levi’s for stealing her ideas and the “style, idea, composition, backgrounds, foregrounds, expressions, gestures” from her work. She claims he’s been ripping her since the ’90s and wants $30,000 for each of the 150 times he’s allegedly done so. […]

Ryan McGinley’s new photo series is chockfull of pretty artifice, tits with sparklers, butts with fowl and sun-streaked naked people, spontaneously tossed taint-first over ethereal landscapes. Life Adjustment Center at San Francisco’s Ratio3 Gallery is 1/2 monochrome emotional bestiality and 1/2 “exuberance, optimism, and power of youth” in color. It kind of makes you want […]

Earlier, Ryan McGinley’s had M.I.A. jumping through basketball hoops and prancing around NYC’s impromptu street fires. After Lynn Hirschberg’s NYT feature presented M.I.A. as a bourgeois, under-informed political poseur (even giving M.I.A.’s ex Diplo a chance to rag on her “terrorist shtick”), M.I.A. got all mad and Tweeted the journalist’s personal cell number. Counterproductive: The […]

Dubbed “the less creepy Terry Richardson,” Ryan McGinley expectedly drew an obnoxious, canned crowd last night at the opening party for his new show at Team Gallery “Everybody Knows This is Nowhere.” The well-connected photographer is known for stripping down the fashionably unkempt down to their tattoos. This time, he strips them of his signature […]
