David Shrigley Artist Blanket Edition 'EXIBITION' launching July 18, 12 noon EST, and is available exclusively from artandculture.com. A portion of sales proceeds benefit Art Omi.
The edition is in conjunction with TO BE OF USE, a solo exhibition by David Shrigley May 25 - July 21, 2019. Th exhibition showcases practical objects, each with a twist that undermines its anticipated function. Among the objects are selections from a series called Problem Guitars, each of which can be played, but in an altered capacity. An oversized telephone allows viewers to make phone calls—so long as the intended number doesn't contain a zero. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, The Artist—a Roomba outfitted with markers protruding from its nostrils—will produce a new weekly drawing to be displayed amongst the other artworks.
The blanket is an edition of 50; extra fine merino wool two-color knitted blanket, 73 x 59 in. (185 x 150cm).
