SF: The Thing, 2015
Standard size 5 football in box created in gingham cotton designed by Michelle Grabner. A physical rebuttal to Ken Johnson’s 2014 New York Times review of Michelle’s exhibition at James Cohan Gallery, in which he referred to Michelle’s work as that of a boring soccer mom. The comment ignited a firestorm of counter-reviews and letters to the editor. Also included is a pamphlet containing a brief introduction, an interview with Michelle Grabner by editor Jonn Herschend, and a reproduction of Joe Fyfe’s review of the review in HyperAllergic. One of 1.000 examples. Very good condition – never opened.
