BOOK: by AJW & Barry McGee

Andrew Jeffrey Wright & Barry McGee
The Broken Down Mysterious Doors of the Impossible
Self-published, 2002

Published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name at Lump Gallery in Raleigh, NC. Screen-printed, photocopied and collaged pages; the center spread unfolds into a screen-printed and spray-painted poster. I purchased this copy at a Space 1026 benefit auction, along with one of the original drawings used in the book. (Not for sale.)

Andrew Jeffrey Wright is a founding member of Space 1026 and one of my favorite (Philadelphia) artists. I like Barry McGee's portraits and patterns just like everyone else — but he really got me at the 1998 Walker Art Center exhibition Regards: Barry McGee where he had engraved had the electrical outlet covers on the gallery floor.
