I was invited to make a piece for Grey Area‘s VIP Art Badge project that launched along with the opening of their new SoHo showroom in NYC. They chose my piece to be produced as an edition of 100. Here’s the brief along with a couple of pics. Check out ARTLOG for the whole story.
Creative Director Kyle DeWoody said, “redefining VIP to mean ‘Very Important Piece,’ we invited over fifty incredible artists to create works replacing the traditional VIP pass. It will not function to get anyone in anywhere, but rather to remind people why they’re here in the first place, the art.”
The VIP Art Badge artists include: Adriana Atema, Aaron Krauch, Alex Da Corte, Alex Massouras, Andrea Mary Marshall, Anne Koch, Bert Rodriguez, Carlton DeWoody, Chris Dorland, Christopher Milne, Dana Funaro, Don Doe, Don Dudley, Dustin Yellin, Elisabeth Koch, Elissa Goldstone, Fawad Khan, Garrett Pruter, Hal Hirshorn, Hank Willis Thomas, James DeWoody, Jana Leo, Jill Greenberg, John Gordon Gauld, John Wells, Jose Parla, Kathy Rudin, Kent Henricksen, Kim McCartey, Laura Ball, Megan Whitmarsh, Meghan Boody, Michael Genovese, Miky Fabrega, Nancy Natalia Brown, Nancy Lorenz, Nelson Hallonquist, Nic Rad, Nir Hod, Panni Malekzadeh, Phillip Estlund, Rachel Rossin, Roz Morris, Sarah Kurz, Shelter Serra, Shirley Irons, Spencer Tunick, Tatyana Murray, Tim Biskup, Tim Liddy, and Vadis Turner.
Note: I actually made another original piece for the show. You’d never guess it was mine unless you know me really well. Hint: you have to feel it to read it.
