"Inject Relevance Back into Architecture". By Lukasz Swiderski. The Hoya, 11.04.08. 
excerpted text: 

“The pavilion sets out to drape an aura of refinement over a cynical marketing gimmick. Surveying its self-important exhibits, you can’t help but hope that the era of exploiting the so-called intersection of architecture, art and fashion is finally over.” (Nicolai Ouroussoff)

Elizabeth Peyton / Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs by Elizabeth Peyton, 2004

Portrait included in Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton. Exhibition on view at the New Museum, New York, through 01.11.09. 

Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton. Press Release. 
excerpted text: 

"From her earliest portraits of musicians like Kurt Cobain, Liam Gallagher, and Jarvis Cocker to more recent paintings featuring friends and figures from the worlds of art, fashion, cinema, and politics including Rirkrit Tiravanija, Matthew Barney, and Marc Jacobs, Elizabeth Peyton's body of work presents a chronicle of America at the end of the last century. A painter of modern life, Peyton's small, jewel-like portraits are also intensely empathetic, intimate, and even personal. Together, her works capture an artistic zeitgeist that reflects the cultural climate of the late-twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries."
