Stepping Up for Art: Tonight I wear a Richard Prince
“Stepping up for art” is a charity project conceived by sixteen years old India Wolf , daughter of artist Maya Lin and art dealer Daniel Wolf , who persuaded 20 artists the likes of Cindy Sherman and Ed Ruscha to create works of art using Charlotte Olympia ‘s signature Dolly platform pumps as the canvas. The shoes, on display at Gagosian Gallery NY from Friday 2nd of May to Monday the 5th, include George Condo’s “Untitled,” a scribbled image of a woman’s face; Francesco Clemente’s “Vanitas,” a painted butterfly and lizard; and Maya Lin’s “Glass Slipper,” a fairy-tale pair embellished with recycled glass. Creations will be sold privately and will benefits Studio in a School, a nonprofit organization that brings art education to public schools in New York City.
