THE COCKTAIL PARTY © 1992 Sandy Skoglund
1. Photocopies I made today.
2. The Lab: an art gallery in the Mission, San Francisco on 16th between Mission and S. Van ness. There is a really good empanada place below it. Sometimes they have concerts. One time I reviewed a show there.
3. 10.-22.-38 Astoria exhibition is going on right now. In fact, the closing party is tonight (Saturday, November 17th, 6 - 8 PM) - thus you should cancel all your early evening plans and head on down there so you can get your xerography on.
4. See, they have some copy machines on site and you can copy anything in the exhibit. I just went and made a series out of one of the pieces I had in the show.
5., 6., 7., 8. This is called xerox art. There’s Timothy Furstnau (member of Fictilis) making some copies.
9. The final series. I call it “Stephanie, disturbed”.
Original artwork by Danielle Tanner
This October-November, FICTILIS will present the second installment of 10.-22.-38 Astoria, our gallery-wide installation/exhibition celebrating the art of xerography (photocopying). The Lab in San Francisco will transform into a pop-up copy shop that is pre-stocked with a wide selection of ready-to-copy artworks, by artists from the Bay Area and beyond. Visitors can use on-site copy machines to interact with the collection in several ways and contribute to its evolution over the course of the exhibition.
Due today - more info. here.
I was hanging out with my friend at 8Bar bikes, watching him put spokes on a wheel, getting bored, and chatting up the people walking by. One of these people invited me to his art project photo party. Actually, I may have invited myself. Anyway, I convinced some friends to join me and we locked our bikes up to trees growing out of the pavement. It was in the central-northern part of Friedrichshain, close to where I was staying (close to Ost Kreuz station). We went in and there was a camera set up on a tripod and artists from all over the world eating pizza. We drank beer and made friends. Then a girl sang a salt n’ peppa song and he photographed her. Then I sang some Supremes, or at least I think that is what I sang. I don’t remember. And he took this photo. I took a photo of his camera viewer with my blackberry. Then I sent it to my ipad. Then I uploaded it onto instagram. I don’t remember his name; I think he has my email.
