Longo has been all over New York this past year, participating in 50 New York Covers: A Public Art Project in celebration of New York Magazine’s 50th Anniversary, and the year-long Creative Time project, Pledges of Allegiance, with revolving flags each month flying high above the Creative Time Headquarters on East 4th Street.
In April of this year, Rashid Johnson was one of several artists, with a close association to The Studio Museum in Harlem, who donated work to be auctioned by Sotheby’s New York to benefit the institution. His mixed media piece, Cosmic Slop “He Said, She Said,” 2014 is the image above (Black soap, wax).
