SFMOMA blog assignment ONE

This is Part one for Part two click HERE

An invitation was sent to a group of artists. I provided a curated list of works from SFMOMA’s permanent collection and asked each artist to make a work in response. This assignment continues my exploration as to how others interact with the museum, particularly how artists relate to works in the permanent collection.

Julie Cloutier “Dislodging: Four Objects” 2010 in response to

Gordon Matta-Clark “Splitting: Four Corners” 1977

Thomas Pringle “Michael Jackson and Bubbles” 2010 in response to

Jeff Koons “Michael Jackson and Bubbles” 1988

Thomas writes “Looks like Lucy from I Love Lucy. Does not look like Michael Jackson, I can tell you that! He must be in a play or part of a movie. I never knew he had a monkey. I think he was murdered, his doctor slipped him a micky and he drank it an died, under the cover of sleeping pills”
