Related to my post on Brice Marden, the current art issue of W magazine has 45 pictures by Stephen Shore of Marden’s Hudson River home. Not one picture shows a Bounty paper towel. (Nor did Leibovitz’s portrait for Vogue).
I wasn’t invited to the W Magazine Art issue party at Pace. The New York Post made it sound pretty interesting:
October 19, 2006 — NUDITY was the topic at the dinner Fairchild head Patrick McCarthy held in honor of W magazine’s first art issue at the Pace Wildenstein gallery in Chelsea the other night. “I was recently at an art function in Denmark when a man stood up during a speech and started shouting, ‘This is not art,’ ” said Pace Wildenstein’s part-owner Marc Glimcher. “The beautiful blonde he was with also stood up and pulled down her pants. The man then grabbed her posterior . . . It was odd.” The crowd checking out Richard Tuttle‘s art installation included WWD chief Ed Nardoza, W creative director Eddie Leide, Chuck Close, Brice Marden, Richard Prince, Mike Ovitz, Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg, Si Newhouse, Francisco Costa and photographer Phillip Lorca DiGorcia, who inexplicably fell out of his chair onto the floor during Tuttle’s speech.
