William Evertson - For A Book About Death - Seattle
It’s been a little over two years since the first A Book About Death exhibition at the Emily Harvey Foundation Gallery in NYC. In 2009 I participated in that group show which included almost 500 international artists. The project was the brainchild of Matthew Rose, who asked artists to contribute 500 postcard versions of our work on the subject of death that would be given away during the course of the exhibit.
Matthew took his cue from an original work of the same name by the late Ray Johnson. Those of us who attended the opening could never have anticipated the interest in the show, with a line of people waiting to enter the gallery extending up Broadway to Prince St. Nor would we have anticipated that it would have traveled so far and been exhibited in so many venues.
