Exhibition view of the show at Sky Art. ARTNEWS.
Tonight, on the longest night of the year, 13 different venues will play host to the stateside edition of Ugo Rondinone: I ♥ John Giorno, a massive exhibition of work by the artist John Giorno presented as a work of art by his husband, the Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone. It's an expansion of the show that went up at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2015, a huge collection of paintings and poems and videos and installation and public displays by Giorno, Rondinone, and a long list of artists who are friends of both. And it's located in various places around town, often in downtown spots close to where Giorno has lived, worked, performed, and hung out during his half-century in New York City.
