MACAULAY CULKIN’S ART COLLECTIVE THREE MEN AND A BABY DEBUTS LEISURE INFERNO IN NEW YORK ON THURSDAY
While Macaulay Culkin may have departed from his placement in center spotlight for Hollywood blockbusters, his roles in more abstracted films mirror his recent foray into the visual art spectrum. After starring in an exclusively-iPhone-shot feature The Wrong Ferrari with artist-musician friends Adam Green and Toby Goodshank of The Moldy Peaches, Culkin stepped foot into painting with the two, forming three-artist collaborative effort Three Men and a Baby. 3MB, as the collective is formally titled, has been collaborating on paintings in the most literal sense of the verb - each of the three artists physically covers the canvas with paint at the same time - and the result is a jarring and yet overtly interesting group of paintings that will be on display at Le Poisson Rouge in New York this month.
The Huffington Post’s Daniel J. Kushner writes an in-depth article about the work of this collective, which seems to be more honest than attention-seeking. Check it out here, an absolutely wonderful interview with the artists here, and details of the show - which opens Thursday - below:
