“Page Six” of Artforum
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.
