Photos and photos of Terry Richardson’s photos by G.
Mom and Dad by Terry Richardson. Now showing at Half Gallery in New York through December 4, 2011
Ever wondered what Terry Richardson’s family album might look like? Wonder no more. His exhibit “Mom and Dad” at Half Gallery in New York is here! The photos are taken from a 2-volume coffee table book that was published earlier this year. The photos could only be Terry Richardson’s parents as the artsy photos range from touching portraits to desperate times. Terry’s parents divorced when he was young and his father has since passed on so this was Terry’s way of bringing his folks back together – even if only for the duration of an exhibit.
The opening night reception (on 11/11/11) was quite a scene and I spotted former REM singer Michael Stipe in the crowd.

And of course, Terry Richardson was also in attendance. As always, he’s a really cool guy. In other Terry Richardson news, Terry and Lady Gaga are releasing a collaborative book and they are going to be signing copies at the New Museum in New York on November 22, 2011. You have to purchase the book in person on November 15, 2011 beginning at 10 am. That’s going to be quite a scene. Find out more details on the New Museum’s website.

Thanks Terry! Love you, man! “Mom and Dad” by Terry Richardson is showing at the Half Gallery (located at 208 Forsyth) in Manhattan until December 4, 2011.
The other day, Russell King took it to the next level (literally) by posting not one but four of his signs that were made in collaboration with artist Mike Die. The entire transaction took less than 2 minutes and I am very glad I was able to catch all the action. Since Russell and Mike’s signs are being affixed to posts, it’s not considered “vandalism.” On the same note, if you want to jack one of these works, you are going to need more than a wrench. See some shots of Russell King in action after the jump.
How cool is this?! This Russell King/Mike Die collaboration is rarely seen in green and pink. In this spot in Chelsea, you can see 4 for the price of one. Not only are they a treat for the eyes, but these great metal signs are not “vandalism” as they are attached to a sign post and can be removed if need be. It took less than 2 minutes to put these signs up. Respect!
We all have the HFA to thank for telling me about this fabulous event where artist Will Cotton talked about his career, posed for a photo with yours truly and even mentioned his recent collaboration with Katy Perry. Awesomeness times 4!
Enjoy another happy famous artist by clicking “play.” It’s that easy!
