The citywide installation and performance by Shirt, in which he left a signed John Baldessari: Pure Beauty book at 14 locations free for anyone to grab, was shared over fifteen posts from the artist’s social media account starting here. Each of the locations Shirt placed a book is marked with an “X” in red paint marker on the subway map above, with the exact cross street locations on instagram. Starting in Queens and ending in downtown Manhattan, the black Krink marker traces Shirt’s “flight plan” through the five boroughs into the letter S.
