Few things could be more of a surefire mega-moneymaker for art world puppet master Larry Gagosian than to stage a show of large scale pop art cowboy paintings in the wild west town of Los Angeles. Here, self-styled movie industry cowboys & girls are the big guns, shelling out massive sums for huge canvases to brighten up their vast expanses of open wall space. Hence, it should come as no surprise that Hollywood's biggest players pulled every string at their disposal to score one of the Technicolor trophies on display at Richard Prince's current show at Gagosian Gallery, "Cowboys" (on display till April 6th), to brighten up their next Beverly Hills dinner party.

Chicago-based artist Nick Cave has been invading NYC's Grand Central Terminal with a mesmerizing troupe of 30 animated roving art horses in a project called HEARD•NY in conjunction with Creative Time. Twice a day at 11AM & 2PM through March 31st, the sculptural horses—animated by two dancers from New York's venerable Alvin Ailey dance troupe per suit—wander, graze, and dance through the historical station's halls, accompanied by live music to the amazement of the thousands of hurried commuters that pack the transit hub daily. Cave's motivation? "I’m looking at the station as a platform to get people back to that place where we dream. We’re in a world where we’re trying to do what we can to exist and hold on to our jobs.So I’d like to transmit this dream-state feeling, to get us out of our day-to-day routine for a moment." Don't miss it... Read More
