In the wreckage of what used to be Gavin Brown’s Passerby, Rob Pruitt displayed a farewell painting to a subject very familiar in his art, the panda bear. Christos Katsiaouni was there to document the final countdown.
Ah, Spring. It brings bursts of color to the go-to blackness of New York, and forms shapes from the bundled layers. I say this both about the work in XSTRACTION and the crowd that gathered at The Hole. Holton Rower’s new paintings are deceptively great as well, drawing the viewer’s focus to the out-of-focus. Christos Katsiaouni was on autofocus to photograph it all.
This was a good party with nice art, drinks and babes, and the Whitney raised over $450,000 towards their independent study program. Win-win.

Hurricane Sandy dumped six feet of water into the basement storage of Printed Matter, resulting in a loss of over 9,000 books. To help ease the cost of repair and enhancement of their storage, a benefit auction and selling exhibition is currently taking place at the Rauschenberg Foundation Project Space. Christos Katsiaouni was in house this past Thursday to document some of the attendees of the art preview.
This past Saturday in sunny Los Angeles, PRISM presented the opening preview and reception for a new exhibition of select works from legendary photographer Mario Testino.
