LABOR OF LOVE
by Charlie Finch
Celebrated actor spouses Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard hosted a party last week at their Park Slope home for photographer Malerie Marder
's comprehensive new volume of her entire oeuvre to date, Carnal Knowledge
, just out from Violette Editions. Malerie, a friend of Peter Sarsgaard since their student days at Bard College, is one of the most gracious artists around, blushing at compliments from Philip-Lorca diCorcia
, her dealer Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, who told me she is only doing guest appearances on Work of Art
this season, and Artforum
publisher Knight Landesman, once again wearing road-reflector orange. When asked why, Knight responded, "These days, I am addicted to orange, Charlie, I cannot wear any other color."
