MAIL ORDER MONSTERS – “20 Prints,26 Page Booklet”
Mail Order Monsters was a traveling exhibition that explored new trends in “fucked-up figuration.” Originated by Kathy Grayson, the exhibition began at Peres Projects, Berlin, moved to Deitch Projects, New York, and finished at ANP, Athens. Every generation has its unique take on the figure and the most exciting new art seems to portray the figure as broken, decaying, fractured, and monstrous! Each artist in the exhibition exemplifies this pervasive tendency in a distinct way. This unique portfolio/catalogue features a 26-page booklet containing an essay by curator Kathy Grayson, as well as 20 frameable prints by Mat Brinkman, Tomoo Gokita, Joe Grillo, Evan Gruzis, Ben Jones, Eddie Martinez, Dan McCarthy, Taylor McKimens, Takeshi Murata, Aurel Schmidt, Fran Spiegel, and Dennis Tyfus. Ben Jones and Taylor McKimens each contributed spectacular wrap-around covers.
