In November, for a conversation with Dong-Ping Wong, architect and director at the firm Food New York, Shirt installed a wall of New Works Sol Lewitt prints that he produced, appropriating the text graphic from the famous conceptual artist. The idea was that a print could be taken off the wall for free by a viewer and the installation would be over when there were no posters left. Some days later in the same space, the architecture firm Food New York had some young students come by and a 7 1/2 year old 3rd grader Ethan added an orange and some details to one of the prints (pictured). In fact, Shirt had distributed prints in various ways at that point in Switzerland, London, and New York, leaving the prints hanging on walls indoors and outside close to locations he was living and working.
