One great quote about the billboards via the Gothamist
“I wanted to play the corporations at their own game, at the same scale and in the same locations. The advantage of billboard companies is that they’ll let you write anything for money, even if what you write is questioning the ethics of letting someone write anything because they have money.”

Peep the video.

This Saturday sees the opening of two respective solo shows at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC.

Both are talented artists and these shows are a must see.
Stockholm’s Natalia Goldin current exhibit, WHISPERS OF IMMORTALITY features GL Brierley, Andy Harper, Sam Branton, Masaki Yada, Rebecca Stevenson, Maurizio Anzeri, the show was curated by: Joakim Borda.
“The show takes its title from a poem by T.S. Eliot. But the theme is more succinctly expressed by Philip Larkin’s description of death: “Most things may never happen: this one will.” Working from this awareness, the six young British artists on view mix morbidity and sensuality to create arrestingly beautiful results. ”
