This is a fun little show from the curators of V1 Gallery, where they sent out a message to a bunch of artists they have shown over the years, including Barry McGee, Tim Barber, Ray Potes, Ed Templeton, Art Marcopoulos, and more, and asked them to submit one piece of art, in an edition of 1 + 1AP, that reflects the current state of the individual artists position right now. That show has become "Hindsight," and opens on January 17, 2014.Here is the full letter V1 sent to artists:
It's a great pleasure to invite you to take part in the exhibition Hindsight. Opening at V1 Gallery's project space ”The Depot” in conjunction with the opening of Asger Carlsen's Hester exhibition.
The concept is simple, we have invited a group of artists that we admire and respect to make an artwork in an edition of 1 + 1AP. The subject matter is open, we would like Hindsight to be a reflection of the individual artists position right now. The Danish based photo retouching company and print makers Werkstette will handle the production and printing. The work will be printed on Ilford Smooth Pearl. You just have to send the file to Werkstette. The maximum size of the print 24 x 30 cm - but the image can be smaller if you wish to have a border around your work.
A newspaper titled Hindsight will be printed with the works in full size and be available to the public free of charge. We sincerely hope that you wish to participate, we hope that Hindsight can be a fantastic document of our world as seen and experienced by a group of great and diverse minds.
