The Art Guys have done it again! In a project exploring the connection between fashion, art, and commerce that only these irrepressible mavericks could have conceived, the two Houston-based artists spent a year crisscrossing the country wearing suits by designer Todd Oldham on which they had sold advertising space to 56 American companies. Suits capturesthrough photographs, essays, and an interview with The Art Guysthe story of their often hilarious experiences in their guise as human billboards.
As readers discovered in The Art Guys' first Abrams book, Think Twicethe catalogue of their 1995 exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houstontheir unique brand of subversive humor is a springboard for insightful observations about society and behavior. In Suits, the duo have found a fresh, fun, outlandish way to make us think about our material culture as we never have before.
