Contemporary Art … British Artist Chris Ofili’s Infamous Elephant Dung Sculpture in View in New York

Amid the many paintings by British artist Chris Ofili currently on view at the New Museum in New York is this amusing, visceral little sculpture tucked away in a small stairwell nook. The piece is titled “Shithead” and is made from the artist’s hair, teeth and elephant dung. (Shit, literally.) The artwork is part of an imposing career-survey exhibition of Ofili’s work called “Night and Day.”

Korean artist Yoon Hyup recently had a mural on the wall at the Rag & Bone Jean flagship store in Nolita, in downtown New York City. Rag & Bone has devoted the wall on the Elizabeth Street-side of its shop to showcasing art, with artists putting up new work every two or three weeks. Love it.
