Black Market Type

Published on May 11, 2009

Our friend Scott Ponik helped organize this show at PNCA. By organize, we mean he helped produce the graphics, design all of the communication and act as the gracious host for visitors who walked into the gallery. Curated by Joseph del Pasco, the Black Market Type & Print Shop features 30 fonts composed of the hand-lettering of prominent artists. Visitors are able to wander to the back room and create posters of their own using any of the fonts.

Artist types included in the project: John Baldessari, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mel Bochner, R. Crumb, John Cage, Henry Darger, Julie Doucet, Jimmie Durham, Marcel Dzama, Tracey Emin, General Idea, Thomas Hirschhorn, Chris Johanson, Jasper Johns, Ray Johnson, Mike Kelley, Margaret Kilgallen, Kathe Kollwitz, Annette Messanger, Duane Michals, Chris Ofili, Laura Owens, Gary Panter, Raymond Pettibon, Adrian Piper, William Pope.L, Richard Prince, Ad Reinhardt, Dieter Roth, David Shrigley.
