Art Since the Summer of ’69 is very happy to present Dictionary - an exhibition and book release by Marc Hundley. Marc Hundley's second book focuses on a series of suggestive illustrations from the American Heritage Dictionary that hold an idiosyncratic, personal, and erotic significance for the artist. The softcover book is modeled on a German student's reader, and will launch at the day of the opening of Hundley’s exhibition at our gallery. The exhibition itself will include selected illustrations from the book, enlarged as limited edition prints.
Born in 1971, Hundley has lived and worked in New York for the last 18 years. He states of his work: "I generally make things that advertise the way I feel — or celebrate things I have chosen to have meaning". Hundley recently completed projects for the Los Angeles based store and art space Ooga Booga, and commissions for the fashion store Opening Ceremony. One of his t shirts was worn by the rapper Lil Wayne on the cover of his recently released record. Hundley’s work has been exhibited at Rivington Arms, Patricia Low Contemporary, Bellwether, Cherry and Martin, and in the Art Since the Summer of ’69 Project Space.
