Dan Colen and Yoshitomo Nara Prepare for Fall

Some of Dan Colen's skateboard-ramps-turned-sculptures were unloaded this afternoon outside of the 24th Street branch of Gagosian. (Alex Gartenfeld had the story on that last month in the New York Observer.) Those hoping to redeem themselves after not skateboarding in Deitch Projects' skateboard bowl during the winter of 2002-03 are out of luck: there will be no skateboarding allowed in the artist's solo show, which opens on September 10. For another reminder that the new season is almost here, head up to the Park Avenue Armory, where Yoshitomo Nara and his assistants are hard at work on pieces for the artist's blockbuster retrospective at the Asia Society Museum. Nara's temporary studio is open to the public today and tomorrow from 4 to 7 p.m. His show kicks off on September 9.
