We Care About You by Andy Coolquitt at Lisa Cooley in New York. Now through June 27, 2010.

American artist Andy Coolquitt has a cool exhibit that just won’t quit (bad joke, I know – but it’s true) at Lisa Cooley in New York.  The exhibit entitled “We Care About You,” has sculptures made out of pipes, broom handles, discarded lighters, beer bottles, light bulbs, straws and crayons!  In conjunction with the exhibit, a 72-page full color catalog of Andy Coolquitt’s work will be available to make sure you check it out while you are at Lisa Cooley.  “We Care About You” runs through June 27, 2010 and Lisa Cooley is located at 34 Orchard Street (between Hester and Canal).

David Salle – Some Pictures From the 80s

David Salle - Some Pictures from the 80s now showing at the Mary Boone Gallery in NYC through June 26, 2010.

American artist David Salle has a cool exhibition at the Mary Boone Gallery in New York right now called “Some Pictures From the 80s.”  At first glance, it looks like David Salle juxtaposes random images in his canvases, but as you examine his wonderful works closer, you can see that David Salle’s protagonists refuse to conform to the viewer’s narrative expectations.  There are dozens of cool works in this exhibit, many of which are extremely large. I enjoyed this exhibit very much. The Mary Boone Gallery is located at 541 West 24th Street in New York and “Some Pictures from the 80s” runs until June 26, 2010.

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.
