Come on dude, defined?

Bob's birthday is coming up... wouldn't it be cool if we all chipped in to have that put up on a billboard in the US somewhere? Some highway in Dayton maybe? For what its worth, I have no clue how much that would cost...

good to see that you got the artists' points there . . .


there's WAY more of an edge to British Art anyway (asfar as "offending" people)


see: Damien Hirst, the Chapman Brothers . . .


Even the Virgin Mary Dung piece you mentioned was part of the British show 'Sensation' which got alot backlash (which I guess you read) from Giuliani whn it visited Brooklyn

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_British_Artists



Quote:
September 23rd, 1999-

Mayor Rudolf Guliani's first statement of opposition regarding the Sensation show. He declares it to be "insulting to Catholics". He also said that there "is nothing in the First Amendment that supports horrible and disgusting projects," and that "if you're going to use taxpayers' dollars, you have to be sensitive to the feelings of the public."

Norman Siegel of the New York Civil Liberties Union comes forth, saying that "once the government, using public funds, punishes artists to suppress unpopular views, we are heading down a dangerous First Amendment road."

ugh


let's BAN it!!


Quote:
September 16th, 1999-

William Donahue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, issues a statement about the impending "beastly" exhibit saying "I know of no other enterprise, profession or industry that allows as many frauds to be perpetrated on it than the artistic community. No wonder Hitler was accepted as an artist: all he had to do was proclaim himself to be one and that was enough for the creative-types to welcome him." The Catholic League calls for a boycott of the Brooklyn Museum from New Yorkers and writes letters to New York City Council asking that the museum have public funds pulled.

i don't know about a billboard, but I'll pay Bob $500 if he performs Carnival at the Morningstar School in Philly or New York

Wow - Bobs art on a giant billboard! And I heard the original collages are really tiny usually, interesting contradiction. . .I'd love to see it but it's too far from London and will be over soon anyway. Great idea... and yeah, there have been a few similar projects in the UK where artists create billboard art for tube platforms etc. but this still is a first. And further proof that there's still appreciation from this side of the pond...

Made the trip to see this yersterday.... such a weird feeling seeing Bob's work on such on a grand scale anywhere let alone Liverpool.

Interestingly I climbed some steps to get a better view for my pictures only to find an empty can of Bud at my feet..... Rolling Eyes


Was definitely worth the effort. If Bob's not going to tour Europe how about a full exhibition of his collages?

I’ve repeatedly tried through various hints and nudges to get the Bob camp interested in printing his collages in the form of poster reproductions, but nobody seems interested in doing so. I have a friend who’s willing to do the print run at a cost of around $40-50 per 2’x3’ poster with pro-quality ink and archival paper, which could then be sold on Ebay or elsewhere for $100-200+, but . . .

(Last time I say this. Movin' on. . .)

I'm with you on this one....the billboard proved just how great these collages look on a larger scale.

Anyone up for a petition?
