Skeletor in New York
The charity art show I am curating, Skeletor Saves, is this Thursday in NYC from 6-10. What started off as a crazy little idea has ballooned into an event of monstrous size! We could not be more thrilled. We took an 80s cartoon icon, He-Man, and built a star-studded celebrity art show around him and his Masters of the Universe.
Some heavy hitters are involved. Designer Marc Jacobs has sketched some characters for the show. Helmut Lang’s submission is modern and the opposite of He-Man’s over-the-top imagery. Porn stars Francois Sagat and Buck Angel turned artists for the event. Add other notable gays to the mix-Casey Spooner, Joey Arias, Raja from RuPaul’s Drag Race- and you have a show that NY Magazine calls “Brilliant/Highbrow.”
I’ll take the brilliant, but highbrow, hmmpf, I don’t know about. Please come out this Thursday if in NYC. Details below:
Skeletor Saves is a collective charity show with work from top artists based on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. All proceeds will benefit the Ali Forney Center in New York City, a shelter for homeless LGBT youth.
