Forever Young

| April 24, 2012 | Parties National

Twenty years ago, British artist Russell Young landed his first celebrity assignment: photographing The Goss-Michael Foundation co-founder and music icon George Michael for the sleeve of his Faith album. The contemporary art gallery recently returned the favor with a retrospective of Young’s most famous work—from the “Marilyn Crying” diptych to his edgy new series, Only Anarchists are Pretty. At a recent opening reception, the works hanging on the walls kept guests buzzing, but it was the 24-hour live webcam broadcast, offering a voyeuristic peek into the artist’s California studio for several months, that perhaps made the biggest impact.
