About the Item

JR, Arched Throw, Montfermeil, 2014 Processed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308g art paper From a limited edition of 1000 Acquired directly from the publisher. Excellent. 9.45 x 11.81 in (24.0 x 30.0 cm) Notes: Taken from JR's work of 'Les Bosquets', an original ballet performance inspired by the riots in the outskirts of Paris. The dancers recreated the social upheavals on the backdrop of music composed by Hans Zimmer, Pharell Williams and Woodkid. Powerful images meet with the strength of the protests and show how the desire to exist may overcome uncertainties of life and create beauty in unexpected places.

  • Richard Prince, The Greeting Card Jokes #2: The Best Friend, 2011
    By Richard Prince
    Located in London, GB
    Richard Prince, The Greeting Card Jokes #2: The Best Friend, 2011 Foil-stamped print, on heavy wove paper, folded. As new condition, never framed or displayed. Hand signed and numbered by the artist, verso. Private collection (UK). From a limited edition of 100. 6.25 x 8.5 in (15.9 x 21.6 cm) Notes: Text image from Richard Prince's iconic Jokes series. Signed and numbered by the artist in ink on interior of card. Incorporating jokes reflective of the “borscht belt” humor prevalent in the 1950's, Prince's Joke works tap into social preoccupations of the national subconscious. Prior to Prince's use of the jokes, many had infiltrated popular culture, gradually losing their original authors to become adopted by a largely oral tradition. Beginning in 1984, Richard Prince began assembling one-line gag cartoons and ‘borscht belt’ jokes from the 1950's which he redrew onto small pieces of paper. "Artists were casting sculptures in bronze, making huge paintings, talking about prices and clothes and cars and spending vast amounts of money. So I wrote jokes on little pieces of paper and sold them for $10 each". Following the hand-written jokes and subsequent works in which cartoon images were silk-screened onto canvas, in 1987 Prince adopted a more radical, formulaic strategy of mechanically reproducing classic one liners and gags onto a flat monochrome canvas. Richard Prince's work has been among the most innovative art produced in the United States during the past 30 years. His deceptively simple act in 1977 of rephotographing advertising images and presenting them as his own ushered in an entirely new, critical approach to art-making — one that questioned notions of originality and the privileged status of the unique aesthetic object. Prince's technique involves appropriation; he pilfers freely from the vast image bank of popular culture to create works that simultaneously embrace and critique a quintessentially American sensibility: the Marlboro Man...

  • Banksy Juxtapose Magazine DIsmaland 2015 Original Copy Cyrstal Wagner Interview
    By Banksy
    Located in Draper, UT
    Dismaland is the latest innovation in family light entertainment by the graffiti artist Banksy. Installed in the centre of an unfashionable British seaside town frequented by low-income families, Banksy describes it as “the perfect art audience.” The location is a former lido comprising four acres of walled seafront compound, which in recent years has come to more closely resemble a neglected prison yard, an atmosphere Banksy has endeavoured to preserve by declaring that none of the installation crew were allowed to bring a broom. This is an art show for the 99% who would rather not be at an art show. It features a fairytale castle, a boat pond, arcade games and extensive water gardens, all given a distinctly modern twist. But beyond the Mickey-taking is a deadly serious attempt to assemble a show that takes stock of its generation. “It's scrappy, incoherent and self-obsessed, so maybe we're halfway there,” says Banksy. This is certainly not a “street art” show—an art form Banksy describes as “just as reassuringly white, middle class and lacking in women as any other art movement.” The roster of artists ranges from Jenny Holzer, winner of the gold medal at the Venice Biennale, to Ed Hall, a pensioner who has spent forty years producing every major trade union banner...
