MAIL ORDER MONSTERS NYC POSTER/IMAGE COURTESY: DEITCH PROJECTS
this image was featured on the artlovers home page/week of: SEPT 11, 2007
talking bout TAYLOR McKIMENS . . .
TAYLOR McKIMENS did the LETTERING for the NEW YORK CITY POSTER of the PERES PROJECTS/BERLIN GENERATED – KATHY GRAYSON CURATED – ‘MAIL ORDER MONSTERS’ – which opened the FALL SEASON at DEITCH PROJECTS on GRAND STREET -running – SEPT 6 – SEPT 29, 2007.
TOMOO GOKITA provided the IMAGE, from a drawing of his called …..’Orthopedic Surgery’.
There was some controversy attached to the DEITCH PJOJECTS staging of the exhibit – it was not exactly the same presentation that PERES PROJECTS served up earlier in Berlin. WES LANG’S work was deleted – that is omitted – that is, censored. for supposedly … generating too many quote unquote negative comments.(?!) DEITCh PROJECTS being the very same galelry that serves up TERRY RICHARDSON graphic images of dicks & asshole lickings. (excuse the expression – but its true).
to get an idea of the so-called (racist (?) – not sexist !!) nature of the WES LANG work – check out the previous artlovers link to KATHY GRAYSON’S BLOG/record of the PERES PROJECTS /BERLIN July 1, 2007 opening . . . ….

here’s a link to the actual PERES PROJECTS/BERLIN exhibit (with more pix !!)
. . you can see for yourself – how great TAYLOR’S new lettering for the NYC show is – compared to the orginal Berlin poster, shown here. sometimes the best inspiration isn’t immediate.
and here’s an early HALLOWEEN TREAT . . . archival artlovers photos of:
