After the recent heat wave, one doesn’t need another reason to leave the city behind for the beach but just in case… It’s the last weekend to catch New York-based artist Richard Phillips’ Point of Purchase exhibition in East Hampton. As its name indicates its focus is the on commercial, highlighting Phillps’ retail and pop-culture collaborations—from MAC Cosmetics to Jimmy Choo to Gossip Girlto Visionaire—from 1999 to 2010 and exploring the artist’s interest in creating art that lives beyond gallery and museum walls.
Point of Purchase is showing at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller (87 Newtown Lane, East Hampton) now through Monday, August 8th.
