The second of the 2 part exhibition takes place at Gladstone Gallery (located at 530 West 21st Street) and is a massive dome-shaped sculpture (hollow in the center). Anish Kapoor will be unveiling Britain’s largest public art work at the 2012 Olympics later this year and you know it will be amazing!

Until then, the duo of Anish Kapoor exhibits are running at Gladstone Gallery in New York through June 9, 2012.

Spotted at the opening of these exhibits were writer Salman Rushdie as well as artist Matthew Barney along with Bjork and of course Anish Kapoor was on hand and after the jump, see a photo of me with the artist.

"DJED" by Matthew Barney. Now showing at Gladstone Gallery in NYC through October 22, 2011

The hottest place to be in New York City on September 17, 2011 was the opening for Matthew Barney’s latest exhibit “DJED” at Gladstone Gallery in New York.  Featuring 3 large scale sculptures, “DJED” is Matthew Barney’s first major works produced from industrial metals such as iron, bronze, copper and lead.  “DJED” is the first New York exhibition of his “Ancient Evenings” project which has been in progress since 2007.  It is inspired by Norman Mailer’s 1993 novel “Ancient Evenings,” and also titled as such.   It’s a multi-part project structured as a site specific opera in collaboration with Jonathan Bepler and deals with the soul’s progression through death and rebirth using an automobile as an allegory of the rise and fall of the American landscape.

“DJED” by Matthew Barney is showing at Gladstone Gallery (located at 530 West 21st Street) in New York through October 22, 2011. Hat tip to the Happy Famous Artists for the info.

May 4 is artist Keith Haring’s birthday.  New York celebrated with an the opening night reception of an exhibit of previously unseen Keith Haring works on paper at the Gladstone Gallery.  The drawings consisted of works from a series called “Manhattan Penis Drawings for Ken Hicks” (1978).  As you can imagine, there were drawings of penises in varying sizes, states of arousal and penises that Haring drew in front of famous New York landmarks.  As I got to the section entitled “Actual Size” that were drawings  of Keith Haring’s own penis, I ran into fellow artist Scooter LaForge.  We are both big fans of Haring’s work, so we were sharing our reflections of the artist.  As any good reporter would do, I asked Scooter LaForge to answer the question that’s been on everyone’s mind:  “[from the ‘Actual Size’ series] which one are you?”

The answer – after the jump.

Keith Haring was born on May 4, 1958.  The late artist’s 53rd birthday was celebrated in New York with the opening night gala reception of a Keith Haring exhibit which features 133 previously unseen works on paper at the Gladstone Gallery (located at 515 West 21st Street in NYC).  The works are taken from a series called “Manhattan Penis Drawings for Ken Hicks” (1978).  Also featured are three large scale works created in 1984 and 1984.

Keith’s birthday was celebrated with a lot of love and emotion in the gallery.  I overheard many conversations of people sharing their personal experiences with Keith Haring.  Spotted in the crowd (and you can see pictures after the jump) were artist Scooter LaForge, rock and roll goddess Debbie Harry as well as Keith Haring’s parents, Joan and Allen Haring.
