We recently made 2 one-of-a-kind silk tops and several necklaces for the giftshop of The Hole NYC, a new galley run by Kathy Grayson, Meghan Coleman and Suzanne Geiss, former Directors of now-closed, Deitch Projects. The necklaces and tops are fabricated with flat-clay beads both Angeline and I handmade.
Excerpt from Art Observed interview with Kathy Grayson:
AO: What about the decision to do the gift shop?
KG: Well, I go to these shows and like I love this art and then they’re like, “$10,000 please!” (frowns) and so I just kind of wanted everyone to be able to take home something. Also, all these artists are really interdisciplinary: they’re in bands, they’re fashion designers, they make jewelry… and so it’s part of this artist’s way of working, making objects and zines, and so it’s just really natural. They have all this cool stuff, and we thought it would be great to make it available.
