Packard Jennings at Catharine Clark Gallery, SF
A project I have been working with Packard Jennings on under the auspices of the Anti-Advertising Agency will make its debut this Thursday, April 6, from 5:30-7:30pm at Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco. You may know Packard from his "Fallen Rapper Protoyptes" in the Illegal Art E xhibit.
The show at Catharine Clark includes two new works. One is a pamphlet, much like his Day at the Mall pamphlet, designed to be included in postage paid return mail envelopes that come with credit card offers. The pamphlet is in the style of an airline safety card, and shows mail processors overturning their desks and creating a new utopian society within their office complex. Packard is collecting the business reply postage paid envelopes to send pamphlets in and would appreciate anyone who sends some his way care of the gallery.
The other project is the Anti-Advertising Agency Bus Stop Bench project. Packard and I have been surveying neighborhoods in Oakland about what advertising tactics bother residents the most, then Packard created new content for ads on the neighborhhod bus stop benches in response to the survey results. The drawings, a sample bench, and documentation can be seen at the gallery.
The opening reception is Thursday from 5:30 to 7:30 on the second floor of 49 Geary in San Francisco. The show will be up through May 6.
