• Keith Haring at Pace Prints

    Keith Haring, often called “the Michelangelo of the New York City subway,”  was formative in changing the face of New York City by legitimizing graffiti as an art form.

    Pace Print's exhibition of Haring's prints and small-scale multiples focuses on prints created between 1983 and 1990 and feature his iconic graphic figures - dogs, dancers, and figures - in motion. The production of prints was an essential part of Haring’s work; as Pace Prints states, “He believed in the inherent democracy of creating limited editions that could extend the reach of his imagery in an attainable and affordable manner.”

    "My contribution to the world is my ability to draw," Haring famously said. "Drawing is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times. It brings together man and the world. It lives through magic." 

    The exhibition includes a pop-up shop; items were created in collaboration with fashion designers Nicholas Kirkwood and Patricia Field. Keith Haring is open until December 3rd - see it while you still can!

  • RxArt Is Now Seeking Winter/Spring Interns!

                                                                                  

    RxArt is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to changing the visual landscape of American hospitals through the installation of original contemporary fine art in patient, examination and waiting rooms. We are seeking an individual who is able to commit to a consistent intern schedule of 3 days per week, 10am - 6pm, for at least a 3 month period during the busy winter/spring season, with occasional weekend and evening hours to assist with our annual fundraiser and increase our presence at art fairs and related events. The internship will begin early January.

    An internship at RxArt offers a wide range of hands-on experience in nonprofit management to those interested in pursuing careers in the fields of visual art, nonprofit administration, healthcare administration, media and public relations, development and/or graphic design. Aside from the usual administrative tasks such as database management, website maintenance, in-house design of printed materials, fundraising and market research, this internship offers opportunities to contribute creatively on a daily basis. We are a small organization, so you can have a significant role and real impact. We have a small, high-energy office and we all enjoy our work. We are located in a light-filled storefront on the Lower East Side.


    Candidate requirements:

    - Excellent communication, organizational, writing and interpersonal skills
    - Proficient computer skills (Mac OS, MS Word, Excel, Adobe Creative Suite programs) and knowledge of social media platforms
    - Ability to commit to a consistent schedule devoting 2 or 3 days per week for at least a 3 month period
    - A strong interest in contemporary art


    We require a cover letter, resume, and an interview with the candidate. This is an unpaid internship. All internships qualify for school credit. Please send all materials to jobs@rxart.net.

  • Ryan McGinness Black Light Nudie Cards

    Ryan McGinness has just released a full, poker-sized deck of blacklight cards based on vintage nudie cards.  They feature McGinness's graphic, iconic drawings developed from figure studies of various models.  McGinness says, "My use of fluorescent paint under the blacklight color spectrum is a strategy to force a singular time/space experience with the work. That is to say, the work must be experienced in person, and cannot be fully appreciated through reproductions via jpegs or printed catalogue pages."


    The deck of cards, produced exclusively for the Standard Hotel, are available now for $35 at the Standard's Shop.

  • Nick Cave 'For Now' at Mary Boone Gallery

    RxArt paid a visit to For Now at Mary Boone Gallery, part of the Soundsuit exhibition by friend and artist Nick Cave. Part Where the Wild Things Are, part Hayao Miyazaki, the show offers a glimpse into a world of fantastic and surreal characters. The suits, wearable sculptures up to 8 feet tall, are made out of wood, fur, yarn, stuffed animals, and every found object imaginable.

    The sculptor and performance artist has two shows running simultaneously – For Now at Mary Boone and Ever-After at Jack Shainman. See both while you still can!
