Long time readers would know that whilst the Big Lamington keeps its finger on the pulse of The Arts in Sydney that I have a very soft spot for Prince, Richard. I've said it before that one of my all time favourite images is his untitled (Cowboy), of which both the AGNSW and Patrick Bateman have a copy. Now for those that have come in late, or don't read the global arts press he has an amazing exhibition on right now at Gagosian in NY. I wish I was in town to see it in the flesh as, being a follower of Prince on both twitter and instagram, I have unwittingly been witnessing this exhibition come together. To avoid me having to give you all chapter and verse, go read Jerry Saltz's awesome review here. Apart from being a top art critic, and personal friend of the Big Lamington, he is also a Prince fanboy so I share his views.
Points - Prince gets them all. Hey AGNSW, when are we bringing this genius out to Aus?
