A History of Progress, Violence and the Modern Spectacle: Crusade Against Communism, Sock Then Ask (Basil Gordon Being Beaten For Refusing To Tell Fellow Auto Workers Whether He Was A Communist, July 1950

I finished Crusade Against Communism, Sock Then Ask (Basil Gordon Being Beaten For Refusing To Tell Fellow Auto Workers Whether He Was A Communist, July 1950 for a show I’m in called Pixelated. The show is in a space called Here Art in New York City which is mostly a theater space and is the same place that I exhibited The Shadow back in 2003. For the show I’m exhibiting all 6 A History of Progress, Violence and the Modern Spectacle paintings as well as Wavy Davy from Epicenter City. I also decided to make an 11″x17″ poster for the show that uses an eye chart that spells Associated Artists for Propaganda Research. I made an edition of  50 for people to take and 4 artists proofs. The artists proofs are on heavier paper and are printed using a color copier and the edition is printed on cheap paper on a black and white copier.

Below is the last painting I finished, the poster and a photo of the posters sitting on my desk after editioning them.
