LA///FIRST LOOK: RICHARD PRINCE GETS NAKED IN HOLLYWOOD
In his aptly-titled new show "She" opening tomorrow nite at MICHAEL KOHN GALLERY, art star RICHARD PRINCE pays ample tribute to the LA-centric institutions of female nudity and car culture with the facility of someone well acquainted with the finer nuances of both. The centerpiece of the show—a split exhibition with Prince's late artist friend WALLACE BERMAN—is a 1986 El Camino wrapped by Prince in an array of photos from his "Girlfriends" series that makes it the perfect Hollywood cruiser for any nite of the week. Fleshing out the exhibition (literally) are offerings from his ongoing series of "Nurse" collages and large scale C-prints from his "Girlfriends" series alongside a real mailbox plastered in vintage black & white porn images that breathes new life into the stale governmental institution. A VIP reception tonite with Prince in attendance will be the hot ticket of the early LA art calendar, and you can expect ample coverage on tomorrow's ST. Meanwhile, HAVE A LOOK:
