SFMOMA blog assignment ONE
This is Part one for Part two click HERE
An invitation was sent to a group of artists. I provided a curated list of works from SFMOMA’s permanent collection and asked each artist to make a work in response. This assignment continues my exploration as to how others interact with the museum, particularly how artists relate to works in the permanent collection.

Thomas Pringle “Michael Jackson and Bubbles” 2010 in response to
Jeff Koons “Michael Jackson and Bubbles” 1988
Thomas writes “Looks like Lucy from I Love Lucy. Does not look like Michael Jackson, I can tell you that! He must be in a play or part of a movie. I never knew he had a monkey. I think he was murdered, his doctor slipped him a micky and he drank it an died, under the cover of sleeping pills”
