Artnet: We Got the First Look Inside Hunter Biden's Hush-Hush Gallery Show

We Got the First Look Inside Hunter Biden’s Hush-Hush Gallery Show, the Least-Seen, Most-Talked About Debut in the Art World

Hunter Biden’s New York art debut, months in the making, is a hushed and intense affair.

Approaching Georges Bergès Gallery in SoHo, you are greeted by a haggle of paparazzi parked outside. The door is locked and a security guard asks for your name before letting you in. It’s open by appointment only.

Titled “The Journey Home,” the show includes 25 works on canvas, metal, and Japanese Yupo paper. It may be one of the most talked-about and controversial art exhibitions in recent memory.

Concerns over conflicts of interest have reached the White House and the Capitol. The artist—the 51-year-old son of U.S. President Joe Biden—has been criticized and ridiculed by the conservative media and former President Donald Trump. His dealer, Georges Bergès, 42, has received death threats and the gallery was vandalized in July.

“It’s a very important exhibition for me because all eyes, like literally outside of the window, are on us,” Bergès told Artnet News at the gallery this week as paparazzi snapped photos through the glass.

The artworks pulsate with color, deep reds, ultramarine blues, and gold leaf. Most seem allegorical, steeped in mythology, symbolism, and personal history. Snakes twirl their bodies around totems. Dragons spit fire. Geometric forms float in space against densely patterned backgrounds. A solitary male figure is outlined here and there, at once part of and apart from this universe of symbols, shapes, and creatures.


This headline tells you all you need to know:


Southwest pilot signs off his comments to passengers with, "Let's Go Brandon."

"On Friday morning on a Southwest flight from Houston to Albuquerque, the pilot signed off his greeting over the public address system with the phrase, to audible gasps from some passengers."


How ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ became code for insulting Joe Biden

WASHINGTON (AP) — When Republican Rep. Bill Posey of Florida ended an Oct. 21 House floor speech with a fist pump and the phrase “Let’s go, Brandon!” it may have seemed cryptic and weird to many who were listening. But the phrase was already growing in right-wing circles, and now the seemingly upbeat sentiment -- actually a stand-in for swearing at Joe Biden -- is everywhere.

South Carolina Republican Jeff Duncan wore a “Let’s Go Brandon” face mask at the Capitol last week. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz posed with a “Let’s Go Brandon” sign at the World Series. Sen. Mitch McConnell’s press secretary retweeted a photo of the phrase on a construction sign in Virginia.

The line has become conservative code for something far more vulgar: “F—- Joe Biden.” It’s all the rage among Republicans wanting to prove their conservative credentials, a not-so-secret handshake that signals they’re in sync with the party’s base.

Americans are accustomed to their leaders being publicly jeered, and former President Donald Trump’s often-coarse language seemed to expand the boundaries of what counts as normal political speech.

But how did Republicans settle on the Brandon phrase as a G-rated substitute for its more vulgar three-word cousin?
