22 of my post-it note drawings (and one ink & watercolour) are currently being exhibited at A Perfect Day, a group exhibition at Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam, which opened on February 10th and continues until the 24th.
I am incredibly thrilled to be exhibited in the same room (albeit a very large room) as so many huge icons and heroes of mine, including Dave Eggers, Paul Davis, Chris Johanson, Rene Magritte, Christoph Niemann, Raymond Pettibon, David Shrigley, Leonard Cohen, Saul Steinberg, the Royal Art Lodge, Ian Stevenson and many more. Click on the above flyer to see a larger, more legible version of the complete list. (Thank you, Olga, for asking me to be a part of it!)
From the Perfect Day website:
A Perfect Day is the continuation of the Apexart exhibit called ‘Lots of Things Like This‘ that took place in 2008 in New York. An exhibition curated by Dave Eggers, author of ‘Whats the What’ and founder of the publishouse McSweeney’s.
‘People who see a drawing in the New Yorker will automatically think thats it’s funny because it’s a cartoon. If they see it in a museum, they think it’s artistic, and if they find it in a fortune cookie they think it’s a prediction. ‘ – Saul Steinberg
image + text: short, powerful, visual and textual funny
Now more than ever you can see anywhere in the world an art form consisting of images and text and, above all, humor. Today you see writers, cartoonists, graffiti artists, poets, songwriters, stage and film makers and artists around the world – in some cases, their main task – working with these elements. It is an accessible, contemporary form of communication, with a quick easy universal language, but as intimate as a sketch on a napkin. – Jesse Nathan
So if you're in Amsterdam, go see it!
