Tony Tasset Artist Edition for Artadia

We are excited to promote Tony Tasset’s artist edition for Artadia in tandem with Art+Culture Projects. Tasset’s “Cup Face” will be featured within the Art+Culture Projects booth at this year’s EXPO CHICAGO and is also available for purchase on Artspace.

Tony’s entirely bronze cup is emblematic of the Chicago-based artist’s practice to create hyper-realistic caricatures of the everyday. Similar to his other large-scale works, including the eye, snowman and other “styrofoam” pieces, the cup is a playful trick. Of his 2014 Whitney Biennial contribution of 400,000 carved artists names, Tasset has said he hopes “to celebrate artists and remove hierarchy.”
