My Submission to Postcards from the Edge, NYC

Peter Combe, Damien Hirst at SFMOMA, 2011 

Above is my submission to Postcards from the Edge, NYC. When I saw Andy Bosselman’s photo of San Francisco based artist, Xiang Gao outside SFMOMA – I cracked up and knew I wanted to incorporate Damien Hirst‘s noggin.

Postcards from the Edge is an exhibit and benefit sale of over 1500 one-of-a-kind postcard-size works of art by established and emerging artists. All artworks at Postcards from the Edge benefit are exhibited anonymously. The works are signed on the back only and though viewers receive a list of all participating artists, they don’t know who created which piece until purchased.

Postcards from the Edge will be hosted at Cheim & Read from January 6-8, 2012

Peter Combe Parallels, Maurizio Cattelan: All, Guggenheim Museum, 2011/Stanley Kubrick, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I couldn’t help but see the parallels.

Thanks to @Guggenheim for sending this blogpost into the Twittersphere, and to SFMOMA for featuring it on their blog.

Update Nov 28: Sadly the @Guggenheim Ow.ly link has now now fails since I changed my Blog URL a few days ago not realizing previous incoming links would fail. I did however get a hefty 1,000 very appreciated hits before the change.

My Name in Lights, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam

Last month I mentioned The Holland Festival and the Stedelijk Museum’s joint presentation of the interactive artwork Your Name in Lights by John Baldessari. It was the opportunity to have your name screened for a 15 seconds on the marquee atop the museum extension’s construction scaffolding. I entered my name and on June 3, Your Name In Lights messaged me to say my name would appear Monday, 6 June 11:20:00 AM CET. This left me very little time find a photographer based in Amsterdam. After many Google searches I was able to find one willing to trek over to the Stedelijk and record the event. Amazing that he was able to take the 6 photos in all, in so short a timeframe.
