“i had this idea to make the announcement card for a show i was having with the info written across this sort of androgynous middle-aged woman’s face. in my mind at the time, it was about the inherent humiliation of being represented, so the announcement was a humiliation for both the artist and the subject. so i wrote all the info for the show across her face, but then i didn’t like it, so i blacked it all out and then i liked it so much better. the reciprocal humiliation felt much more extreme.” —john currin. gagosian is presenting a selection of framed works on paper by john currin at frieze new york. the fair opens to the public this friday, may 5 and runs through may 7. click on the link in the bio for information. #johncurrin #gagosianatfrieze #friezeny #friezeartfair @friezeartfair __________ image: john currin, "untitled," 1992, gouache on photocopy, 6 × 5 1/2 inches (15.2 × 14 cm) © john currin.

“this is around ‘88 or ‘89, and was one of my first figural things. it was right at the beginning of my transition from macho abstraction to… i didn’t know where i was going. on one level, it is a kind of parody or satire—though it’s not satire because it’s not really knowing well enough what i think i am satirizing. but it is meant as a slapstick parody of figurative painting—specifically of the kind of images high school girls would make. so this is basically a hornless unicorn, i guess—but actually this trained me to look at the right parts of the canvas for the first time, stop worrying about the corners, all that kind of stuff—just change my persona.” —john currin. frieze new york opens to the public tomorrow, may 5. gagosian's booth is featuring an installation of works on paper by john currin. click on the link in the bio for information. #johncurrin #gagosianatfrieze #friezeny #friezeartfair @friezeartfair __________ image: john currin, "untitled," 1989, gouache on paper, 11 1/8 × 9 1/2 inches (28.3 × 24.1 cm) © john currin

In these mirror paintings, #rachelfeinstein combines images of luxury cars and homes with details from 18th century wallpaper - creating a fantasy only to reveal it’s a construction.

Meet the “secrets” - rachel feinstein’s new large scale sculptures modeled after victoria’s secret angels on the runway. no longer idealized and refined, these works dismantle the ideas of beauty and performance that they represent.
