Prince was promoting LGBT Movement in his music 30 years ago before it was even an acronym.. We lost a shining light and monumental (once in a 100 year) talent. Rest In Peace Prince

 

 

 

 

A must see retrospective exhibition by a remarkable and mercurial artist. A rare chance to see some of his best work.

“I can’t stand art actually. I’ve never, ever liked art.” So the artist David Hammons told the art historian Kellie Jones in a 1986 interview. Then why do you make it? Ms. Jones asked. Because, Mr. Hammons offered, art is about symbols and “outrageously magical things happen when you mess around with a symbol.” (via New York Times article).

David Hammons: Five Decades” runs through May 27 at Mnuchin Gallery, 45 East 78th Street, Manhattan; 212-861-7858, www.mnuchingallery­.com

William Klein is a legend in the fashion and documentary photography world. His ability to transcend anything he works with is a testament to his legendary status.

Have a look at the images that got him hired at Vogue. He was a master right out of the gate.

“William Klein: Black and Light, (1952-2015) is the second in the imprint series – unique and beautifully produced publications, each dedicated to the work of a single artist; in–depth and in print. Imprint #2 is the first publishing of a seminal maquette created in 1952 by cult photographer, film-maker and master of the photo book, William Klein (USA, born 1928). It is comprised completely of experimental photograms made only with light and movement – events captured and transformed in the darkroom. Created just after and inspired by Klein’s late 40’s/early 50’s geometric paintings and screens, when first exhibited in 1953 they led directly to his invitation to work for Vogue in 1954. The rest, as they say, is history”
