So, plenty of weird things have happened to me thanks to the grocery lists project—the latest being that some of it is currently part of an exhibit (and book) at the Art Gallery of Ontario alongside art and items from Ed Ruscha, Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Hockney, Patti Smith, Claes Oldenburg, and others.
Weird. But good… because it’s so weeeeeeird 😛
“From the earliest cave paintings to TikTok, humans have found creative ways to document their day-to-day lives. I AM HERE: Home Movies and Everyday Masterpieces, a major new AGO exhibition opening in April of 2022, is a revealing look at our universal need to capture, share and cherish the everyday. Featuring lost-and-found home movies from the Prelinger Archives, alongside celebrated artworks by the likes of David Hockney, Patti Smith, Claes Oldenburg, Annie Pootoogook, Arthur Jafa and Mary Pratt, as well as snapshots, photo albums, letters, television, grocery lists, and social media, I AM HERE brings together a broad range of personal records from different time periods and locales to explore the shared human impulse to document life as it happens.”
See the exhibit from April 13 to August 14, 2022…
