Yayoi Kusama, “The Spirits of Pumpkins Descended into the Heavens,” Infinity Mirror Room at The National Gallery in Singapore, 2017

She’s back! The wait for her NYC return may be over, but the long lines are just starting to form. New Yorkers, get ready to step inside the hallucinatory, fantasy world of the self-proclaimed modern-day Alice in Wonderland, Yayoi Kusama. The iconic artist continues her U.S. takeover on the heels of packed runs at The Broad in LA and The Hirshhorn in D.C. with several exhibitions taking place simultaneously in NYC. Famed “Infinity Mirror Rooms,” new sculptural work, and sixty-six paintings from her “My Eternal Soul” series are all on display in David Zwirner’s Chelsea locations, while the gallery’s newly-opened Upper East Side space presents the latest “Infinity Nets.” A few of Kusama’s paintings are also on view at the Judd Foundation through December 9.

Rashaad Newsome: Reclaiming Our Time
De Buck Gallery
Now through December 9

Collage, sculpture, dance, and video are some of the methods employed by Rashaad Newsome in raising questions of power and agency in his work. The artist’s current exhibition continues his line of inquiry into authorship and attribution, a path that has included a deconstruction of Madonna’s “Vogue” in the past, highlighting the dance form’s origins in the 1970’s queer ballroom community in Harlem. This time, Newsome focuses on Cubism and the movement’s West African influence that has been largely overlooked. The exhibition presents three-dimensional collages, an installation entitled, “Through the Looking Glass” as well as sculptural objects from the artist’s furniture collaboration with Vosay, an Afro-Brazilian firm. During the exhibition, Newsome’s new immersive performance piece “Running”will be presented at The Park Avenue Armory on November 7th.

Richard Prince: Ripple Paintings
Gladstone Gallery
Now through December 22

Richard Prince, “Ripple Paintings” at Gladstone Gallery, Installation View

The master of appropriation who used the Marlboro Man and Instagram posts as fodder for his creations has done it again. This time, the source of his material comes from the pages of a magazine, Playboy magazine to be exact. Created in the last two years, this new body of work is culled from the cartoons the artist ripped out of the vintage issues of the publication he purchased on eBay, all produced between 1967 and 1970. Why cartoons? “I love cartoons. Funny drawings. Serious humor. Subversive. Laugh out loud. Another way of surviving.” Prince plays not only with the subject matter but the watercolor method in which the cartoons were made, adding his own watercolor paint – in contrasting hues and multiple layers – to the torn out pages, creating ripples as a result.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar Lists Hawaiian Estate for $3.3 Million

imagereader.aspx

Sammy Hagar is a certified rock and roll legend; whether it was his work with groups like Montrose or Van Halen, his solo career, his TV show, or his successful entrepreneurial ventures, his contributions to pop-culture have persisted for over 40 years reaching far outside the walls of the music industry.

According to a recent story in the Los Angeles Times, Hagar has listed “Mu,” his home of 22 years in Haiku, Hawaii for $3.299 million with Island Sotheby’s International Realty.localimagereader.ashx4

Hagar settled in Hawaii after the island’s beauty wooed him when he visited following a Van Halen tour in the mid 1990’s; his short stay to recharge quickly grew into a love for what he experienced during his time there.

Spanning nearly 10 acres looking out over Waipio Bay, Hagar’s home includes three bedrooms, a saline pool with cabana, outdoor brick pizza oven, and gourmet chef’s kitchen – one that has served as a creative space where many notable chefs crafted memorable meals.

Tranquility in mind, the property showcases the beauty and favorable weather Hawaii is known for. Enjoy a round of three-par golf, hike to a private waterfall, or enjoy a life of sustainability complete with a private well, water catchment, solar electricity, tilapia fish pond, fruit trees, and terraced vegetable gardens right on the home’s grounds.
