David LaChapelle : American Jesus

David LaChapelle’s latest exhibition of photographs, a series of digitally-doctored depictions of the late Michael Jackson shown under the provocative rubric “American Jesus,” opened to a packed house at Chelsea’s Paul Kasmin Gallery NYC. The abridged American Jesus exhibition at Paul Kasmin puts extra focus on three photos depicting the late Michael Jackson (well, a lookalike) as Christ and features a striking image of Naomi Campbell as Cleopatra.
A broadly expanded version of the show opens at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art later this month. “It’s going to go on until people don’t want to see it any more, I guess,” LaChapelle said.

At the opening on Tuesday 13th
