Clancco Poster at LMCC’s Lent Space


ls10_late_ed_04_backLMCC has just released a two-sided poster I designed for their LentSpace Late Edition project, What is Pan-Americanism? Here’s a description of the Late Edition project:

Punning “late editions,” when newspapers used to release evening editions of breaking news, with “late addition,” as in an afterthought or correction, this print-media series aims to put the current exhibition and its subject up for review by artists. Instead of following the conventions of newspaper publishing, these responses take the form of a new artwork “edition” that will serve as a compliment, retort, or possibly, as a humorous non-sequitur.

Once formatted, these prints are nested into LentSpace’s own program guide as inserts and distributed on-site in newspaper distribution boxes for free, while supplies last. By appropriating the newspaper distribution boxes in LentSpace as a gallery in-itself, each edition will become both part of the larger exhibition, yet will also serve as a take-home gift — often found by surprise — for any visitor.

Keeping in mind that these works will be publicly circulated, hoarding or other “appropriations” beyond the typically intended reception of the art object, such as using these papers as material for packing glass, are to be expected and also encouraged. In order to center this current set on the same themes of the Avenue of the Americas exhibition and to create a small volume of thematically joined works, each of the participating artists were posed a simple yet provocative charge, namely: What is Pan-Americanism?

The LentSpace program was curated by Adam Kleinman and Deborah Sprzeuzkouski, and included three other Late Editions by Wilfredo Prieto, Sebastian Errazuriz, and Erick Beltran. You can get your copy at Lent Space in Manhattan. If you can’t make it and would like one, e-mail me your name and address at sergio_sarmiento@clancco.com and I will get one out to you.
