ArtCal – Triple Candie – Limelight, Coffeehouse and gallery, 1954-61
The only thing we know for sure about this exhibition is that you can get a cup of coffee for 25 cents. It might be a send-up of the Limelight or it might be an homage. Read the press release and decide if the original exhibition actually existed.
I Like Nice Things tags Aitken’s work for their own and uses videos of people you might actually see on your daily commute (instead of Chan Marshall).
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s session picks for the College Art Association Annual Conference.
