In the Flatfiles at Pierogi 2000 in Brooklyn, I found an Art Haiku matchbook by Ryan McGinness. Much in the spirit of Ray Johnson’s mail art, the matchbook was free and was added to the Flatfiles long before McGinness became an art world star. Irony is not dead after all. His Art Haikus bash the likes of Julian Schnabel, Matthew Barney and Damien Hirst for the sort of insider art culture knowledge that he is pretending not to have. Priceless indeed. The Images below are about three times the matchbook size. The text would have been difficult to read otherwise.
