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.

Yung Lenox

Under the art direction of his father Skip Class, six-year-old Yung Lenox makes portraits of rappers and popular characters from online culture. This Saturday, the lil’ man makes his debut in the group show Magic Kingdom at the Old School in New York.

“He is me and I am him. 

He is my son. I am his dad. If I watch cartoons then he watches cartoons. If I eat pizza then he eats pizza. If I listen to obscure 90’s Memphis rap tapes then he listens to… get the idea.”

Jeff Koons Art Magazine Ad Series

Four ads taken out in four different publications (Artforum, Art in America, Flash Art, and Art News) used to publicize the exhibition of his now famous ‘Banality Series’ in 1988. The show happened simultaneously in three galleries, with each sculpture in an edition of 3.

From Wikipedia:

Each of the full-page features depicted different parts of Koons’ reputed persona:

• A propagator of the banal: Koons is shown alongside two pigs
• A bad influence on future generations: he is in a classroom with lots of children, a blackboard contains the slogans “Exploit the Masses” and “Banality as Savior”
• A gigolo: he is standing in front of a boudoir-style tent
• A ladies man: he is with a pony and several women in bikinis
