New online exhibition from 98Bowery Gallery, the webshop arm of Marc H. Miller’s personal project 98 Bowery: 1969-1989 — View From the Top Floor; again willing to showcase and document (and sell if possible) much of the forgotten art from the 1970s and 1980s.
In this occasion 98B brings American sculpture Tom Otterness and his plaster series “Zodiac Love” to the web palette so anyone can grab a piece of “populist” love from the well-known public sculptor.
First marketed in 1982, each of the twelve small-scale, plaster sculptures in the Zodiac Love series were priced at $11.95. While initially conceived as an unlimited multiple edition, in fact only few of these sculptures were actually sold and they have not been produced since 1987. Online Gallery 98 has obtained a limited selection of these plasters now regarded as important early works by a world-famous artist.
The just “opened” expo runs though winter until mid-February and joins some other pretty interesting web shows that continue to honor the spirit of Bowery’s artist low-rent refuge. More info this way!
