An Experiment in Art and Education
Graphicstudio artisan, Matthew Squires, has just returned from Berlin. He returns after assisting in the installation of Allan McCollum’s “Each and Every One of You” at the Galerie Thomas Schulte . The piece looks particularly impressive in the space, which features a large storefront window with high visibility from the street.
About Each and Every One of You
“Each and Every One of You” was produced at USF Graphicstudio. The project is an arresting exploration of the emotional investment we all share in giving each other names.
Hoping to evoke an avalanche of memory and feeling with the simplest of means, he researched the U.S. Census Bureau’s most recent compilation of common names used in the U.S., and produced 3 portfolios of 1,200 prints each: the 600 most common female names and the 600 most common male names. Each portfolio is ordered according to popularity into two handmade walnut boxes.
“Each and Every One of You” was first exhibited at the Barbara Krakow Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts. The work recently traveled to Lyon, France and was also accepted into the National Gallery of Art archives along with several other Graphicstudio editions.
