The Postcard Project: Surreptitious Installations
1999-2000

The use of museum shops was appropriated as exhibition space to
humorously subvert the sequence of art marketing in the creation of artists’
reputations.

Each
Surreptitious Installation (of a postcard of my own work into the
postcard racks of prominent art museum shops) was documented by a
quick photo, and the purchase of my card along with adjoining cards.

Evidence of each installation were the receipt, the photo, the purchased
cards, a museum bag, and a receipt.
