Nick Van Zanten

Regular price $75.00

Shipping calculated at checkout.

A meticulous record of all the time the artist spent not making art interleaved with a record of all the time the artist spent not making money, describing all of his worthless activities, during the period that he worked as an art handler for the MCA Chicago while also in grad school (1/13-1/28/17). Can be read from either direction, one way showing everything that happened except for paid time working at the museum, the other everything that didn't go towards making artwork. To protect the people that the artist interacted with during this time certain names, places, and events have been altered, with each edition having slightly different alterations. Edition of 15 + 1 AP.
Dimensions: 8.5 x 11"
Materials: Softcover staple-bound book, 66 pages
