If you are old enough to remember when Madonna was on the cover of Penthouse Magazine, you are laughing your ass off right now.

If not, I’ll just say the word “Pussy” and maybe that’ll give you a chuckle.

Love Stories Suck – but you can still eat my pussy – TMNK

On September 11, 2011, when a lot of New York was protecting themselves from another attempt by the media to scare us into submission, I was out and about on the town working it as usual.  I stopped by SoHo to see that NOBODY was there.  TMNK stopped by to give away free art, placed strategically throughout the city.  It was already encased in plastic, so as not to ruin it. Now that is full service, according2g.

I spent the day with NOBODY and NOBODY made my day.  Thanks for the great art, TMNK!

Lynda Benglis

Lynda Benglis at The New Museum in NYC. Exhibit dates are February 9 - June 19, 2011

The New Museum in Manhattan has a very special exhibit that opens to the public today, February 9, 2011: the first ever career retrospective of artist Lynda Benglis shown in New York!  Lynda Benglis has just about done it all and this must see exhibit has something for just about everyone: sculpture, video installations and photographs, many of which are on display for the first time.  Benglis has been at the forefront of the women’s lib movement, conquering the world of art, which had previously been ruled by men.  She broke down so many boundaries for women, including a huge victory when she responded to the male-dominated art world by posing completely naked (except for a pair of sunglasses) with a giant latex dildo as an advertisement for her 1974 exhibit.  A photo of that can be seen after the jump, but please be warned it contains nudity.

You might recognize this poured wax sculpture as it is regularly on display at the Whitney Museum.  There are many different variations of this sculpture in the retrospecitve and each one will leave you wondering how she made it.  One of my favorite parts of the exhibit was a room lit with only black light featuring some very cool wall sculptures.  The below picture will give you a frame of reference, but please take my word for it and see this with your own eyes!

Lynda Benglis at the New Museum runs from February 9, 2011 through June 19, 2011.  The New Museum is located at 235 Bowery in New York.

After the jump, see two pictures that may not be safe for closed-minded people.

The Sacred Gallery in New York is great for so many reasons.  Located on 424 Broadway, 2nd Floor (at Canal Street), the space houses a really cool tattoo parlor as well as an art gallery.  Everyone you’ll encounter at the Sacred Gallery is really cool and every month, they have a new exhibit showcasing great art.  On February 5, 2011, the gallery hosted The Tata Gala (Best of the Breast). Featuring the work of 20 artists, the mixed media show was quite cool.  Even better, the opening night reception was a benefit to raise money for breast cancer research!  As the name of the show suggests, the exhibit celebrates the female body and the art was quite titillating (sorry, I couldn’t resist).

Mick Jagger by Mark Seigler

Photographer Mark Seigler has seen and photographed everything from rock stars to gorgeous landscapes to still lifes and nudes.  “Listen” by Mark Seigler at the Steven Kasher Gallery in New York shows off many jewels from Seigler’s career that have never been displayed publicly.  Coinciding with the exhibit, Seigler has released a companion book also titled “Listen,” which is now available.  Music fans will surely recognize Seigler’s work as he has taken iconic photos of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Lenny Kravitz.

David Bowie by Mark Seigler

I attended the opening night gala reception for “Listen” by Mark Seigler and I was fortunate enough to meet the artist.  See a picture of my encounter with Mark Seigler as well as an image of a female nude (NSFCMP – not safe for closed-minded people), after the jump.

“Listen” by Mark Seigler is now showing at the Steven Kasher Gallery in New York until February 26, 2011.  The Steven Kasher Gallery is located at 521 West 23rd Street in Manhattan.
