Kiki Smith will be the third artist to be featured in the Public Art Fund’s “Last Lot” series, which brings art to a deserted lot in Times Square at 8th Avenue and West 46th Street, the project’s organizers announced today.
Ms. Smith will place a series of stained glass stars statues in the lot that range from “18 inches to six feet in height and are a kaleidoscope of hand-blown, translucent, iridized, modeled, and cathedral glass,” according to a press release.
Interview just put out a chat between Kiki Smith and Jenny Holzer that’s very worth reading.
Though Andy Warhol was notoriously private, a new exhibition at the New York gallery Affirmation Arts, “Warhol: Confections & Confessions,” shows 53 images from the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, none of which has ever left Pittsburgh. Eight of the pictures, one of which shows Andy Warhol skating, have never before been exhibited. [WSJ]
