Edgy artist Richard Prince — who was kicked off Instagram this year for posting a naked pic of Brooke Shields as a child, then reinstated — has been quietly showing, and selling, his latest, Instagram-inspired work at Gagosian Gallery.
Prince’s 48-inch by 56-inch″ inkjet prints from celebs’ social media feeds — with his comments underneath that are sometimes just emojis — have been on display for VIPs in a private area at the Madison Avenue space.
A spy who saw the works said pics of Pam Anderson and Kate Moss are included and selling for up to $100,000.
One mega-collector wondered whether rights issues could be tricky in some cases.
No formal exhibition has been announced. A rep didn’t comment.
