Tony Tasset, Artists Monument

For the 2014 Whitney Biennial, artist Tony Tasset has chosen to take his Artists Monument
outside of the Museum’s galleries and present it in Hudson River Park, 17th Street between
Chelsea Piers and Pier 57. Just a few blocks away from my house!

The multicolored acrylic panels of Tasset’s Artists Monument are etched with the names
of 392,486 modern and contemporary artists, ranging from Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol
to emerging artists.

My name is inscribed twice. I'm not sure if that is because of my split personality,
or because I am twice the artist?
