76 Grand Street
Deitch Projects presented an exhibition of drawings by Anthony Haden-Guest in conjunction with the launch of his new book, The Chronicles of Now. Haden-Guest’s acerbic drawings were well-known from their regular appearance in The New York Observer. Their spare, haiku-like humor revealed many of the unstated truths behind contemporary social interchange. The drawings seemed to flow directly from the interior of the artist’s mind. They were not labored and over-analyzed, but were as direct and spontaneous as the quickwitted remarks one would hear when accompanying Haden-Guest on his nightly rounds of cocktail parties.
Anthony Haden-Guest played a central role in the New York art world for more than twenty years. His book True Colors: The Real Life of the Art World is the ultimate insider’s account of the New York art community of the ‘80s and ‘90s. His friendships with many of the important artists and his presence at many of the most memorable official and underground art world events have given him remarkable insight into the way art is created, communicated, and consumed. Those insights inform and enliven his drawings, capturing what people are really thinking as they attend art openings, but are afraid to say.
