Pulp Affliction

Prep visually for the Guggenheim’s upcoming Richard Prince retrospective by heading out to Long Island City’s Fisher Landau Center for Art where Prince’s Man-Crazy Nurse #3 rounds out an impressive showing of the institution’s prized holdings. Man-Crazy Nurse is one of Prince’s many “Nurse” paintings — sexy, sinister images culled from pulp lit, overlaid with acrylic and now, thanks to Tarantino, forever tied to Daryl Hannah’s lethal Elle Driver in Kill Bill. Minus the eye patch. —Rachel Wolff
