Richard Prince - The Author. Now showing at John McWhinnie Gallery in New York through October 29, 2011

New York!  If you are a lover of Richard Prince’s work, time is running out to see an exhibit of rarely seen as well as works that have never been exhibited before.  “The Author” which is now showing at John McWhinnie Gallery at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller in Manhattan focuses on Richard Prince’s text based work through various stages of his career.  His series “TV Listings” from 1989-1993 has never been exhibited before (and you can see one canvas from the series below).

Richard Prince: T-Shirt Paintings at Salon 94

Richard Prince: T-Shirt Paintings now showing at Salon 94 in NYC through June 26, 2010.

Controversial artist Richard Prince has an exhibit at Salon 94 in New York called T-Shirt Paintings, the inaugural exhibition at Salon 94 Bowery. This exhibit is a mini-retrospective, spanning 25 years of Prince’s work.  Prince has stretched T-shirts of varying sizes and colors and has painted them in ways that only Richard Prince could.  One of my favorite pieces in the exhibit (which you’ll see a photo of below) is a white shirt with a CD sticker from Led Zeppelin’s “Houses of the Holy” affixed to the center of the piece with a few tiny specks of paint down the right hand side of the shirt.  Sometimes I like simplicity, what can I say.  After this exhibit closes, the gallery will be renovated over the summer and will reopen in September 2010.  Salon 94 is located at 243 Bowery and “T-Shirt Paintings” by Richard Prince runs until June 26, 2010.
