“Page Six” of Artforum

by Ken Krimstein


WHICH detested neo-realist threw a wild, drug-fueled party before his recent marriage? The image-maker was parading about his loft wearing only socks and showing off his leather outfits and sex toys … WHICH transgressive sculptor/videographer, who has had her share of bad publicity, refers to her husband’s first marriage as “abstract-expressionist era”? … WHICH despised female conceptualist doesn’t hide the fact that she hits the bottle at work? She has her assistant wash her shot glass every morning … WHICH leathery photorealist looks even worse than usual lately? He was going to be shot by a certain Polaroid artist for the next Abercrombie & Fitch catalog, but called it off at the last minute because his nose had collapsed due to the mountains of coke he’s consumed.


THAT a certain long-in-the-tooth minimalist had to audition for a part in director James L. Brooks’s Spanglish, starring Teá Leoni and Adam Sandler, and didn’t get the part … THAT Jenni Kayne, the 21-year-old daughter of F.A.O. Schwarz owner Kayne Anderson, has come out with her first collection of objet brut.


Basel Biennalle perennial and legendary recluse Anselm Kiefer at Sardi’s with author Vic Carucci and superagent Bob LaMonte … Armani-clad director/broken-plate genius Julian Schnabel huddling over lunch at Michael’s with public-relations guru Steve MangioneMaxwell and Busta Rhymes checking out the opening of the Christine Heindl show on Broadway at Prince Street.
