This Friday, over 100 artists are coming together to re-appropriate the iconic Garbage Pail Kids trading card sets from our childhood. We are teaming up with Gallery 1988 and Topps to make this a reality… here are some examples of what you can expect from the exhibition, opening Sept 2nd from 7 to 10pm at Gallery 1988 on Melrose:
Contributing artist Robert Brandenburg is known for taking old magazine ads, photos, and paintings from garage sales and swap meets, and incorporating his own artwork into them. For our show, he started out with this original “Tommy Gun” Garbage Pail Kids card…
…and did this with it. His explanation is as follows:
“The classic 1967 film “Bonnie and Clyde” is now so heavily identified with its leading actors that people often forget that others had auditioned for those roles. This studio still shot shows Tommy Gun during a screen test for the part of Clyde Barrow. While it’s usually accepted that Warren Beatty took the role for himself because he was producing the movie; others suggest that he did so upon the insistence of Faye Dunaway (cast as Bonnie Parker), who objected to Tommy’s diminutive stature…he being just over 3 feet tall.”

So I said, “Excuse me. Do you mind if I take your photograph?”
And so he said, “Me? Why would you want my photograph?”
“Because I’m a fan. I’m a very big fan.”
“Do you even know who I am?”
“And who are you?”
“I’m a Bob as well.”
“And what do you do?”
“I run a lifestyle project. I have an apparel line and a popular website where I get to write, and share experiences, storytell, and opine, not unlike how you do.”
“Well then, take my picture. And it better be good.”
I still have heroes; the people who I look up to in my life. When I was young, they wore capes or were cartoons, and when I was a teenager they rode skateboards and played instruments and made art. And when I became a man, those heroes turned into thinkers and rebels and iconoclasts. My heroes are persuasive and incendiary and they do things differently. Their lives are difficult by choice, their comfort zone long abandoned and they exhaust themselves in the pursuit of change and progression. These are my heroes. Bob Lefsetz is one of my heroes. By chance, I sat next to him at the Deadmau5 show at the Palladium over the weekend and I couldn’t resist fanning out. He was immersed in the show, the glow of his Blackberry calling, the stack of merch at his side. Bob has taught me how to be a real music fan in the Spotify age, how important that human connection is through art, and how cool it can be to be critical and use your voice. 99% of you out there don’t know, or probably care, as to who Bob Lefsetz is. But for me, this one meant a lot and I was grateful for the opportunity.
…and I’m pretty sure I saw a cape on Bob’s back.
