Rob Pruitt Rob Pruitt's Autograph Collection
London, UK: Luxembourg & Dayan. 2012
Synopsis: This catalog accompanies Pruitt's 2012 exhibition at Luxembourg & Davan.
"This body of work began in 1980, when Pruitt, then still in high school, made a special pilgrimage from his home in Washington D.C. to New York City specifically to obtain Woody Allen’s autograph. That first moment waiting for Mr. Allen at the stage door of Lincoln Center was the initial event that solidified Pruitt’s obsession. After college, during the Pruitt Early collaboration, the practice of collecting autographs was incorporated into the litany of Pruitt Early projects, albeit one that was never exhibited. Pruitt-Early eventually went on to collect autographs by carrying unstretched, raw Belgian linen with them to events and parties for their subjects to sign. Since the 1980s, this vast collection, which has become “The Signature Series,” features signatures from well-known individuals, including visual artists, actors, political figures and other people of cultural significance. Pruitt Early never showed their signature series collection while they worked together, and since they disbanded as an artistic entity, Pruitt has continued to amass this autograph collection over the past three decades." -- from the publisher
