Remembering Richard Duardo

Vault // Wednesday, November 12, 2014
There was only one Duardo, and with such dash and panache, he was recognized by that one moniker. Known from coast to coast, from sun-up to sundown, Richard Duardo lived to celebrate art and those who make and inspire art. He was certainly at home at the galleries where I'd hear him revel in conversation, but his heart was in the streets and neighborhoods that guided his Chicano pride and call for justice and dignity.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 12, 2014
From the sounds of it, the new Murakami show is quite personal and a deep meditation on life and mortality in the face of the great earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011. He recently told the NY Times, “I used to think of religion as something kind of false and hypocritical, but after the earthquake disaster, I realized in a time like that, religion and fairy tales and things like that are actually a necessity." His newest solo show, "In the Land of the Dead, Stepping on the Tail of a Rainbow," opened at Gagosian in NYC on November 10, and will be seen through January 17, 2015.
