Martine GutierrezANTI-ICON

Martine Gutierrez talks about ANTI-ICON, ​her​ project commissioned by the Public Art Fund. In a series of ten photographs installed on bus shelters throughout New York, Boston, and Chicago, the artist embodies historical and mythological figures​ using improvised props and costumes. In a conversation with Public Art Fund associate curator Katerina Stathopoulou, Gutierrez describes​ ​placing her images in the context of everyday city life​, while using the language​ of​ advertising to undermine the power and ubiquity of marketing.
