About this project

We, DB Burkeman & Monica LoCascio, are a fanatical pair of obsessive art geeks and curators that have created a massive book which chronicles the art of the sticker, entitled STICKERS: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art. The book starts with Andy Warhol's banana sticker for the cover of the Velvet Underground album, and then makes its way through music, skate, brands, graffiti, fine art, politics and social issues, themes (dogs, cats, shapes, words, etc), and unconventional adhesive art forms. The book itself can be found here: http://www.rizzoliusa.com/book.php.... It features over 4,000 graphics on its 300 pages, and over 1,400 artists and includes an 23 peel-out designs in an 8 page section with exclusive stickers done just for our project. The deluxe version of the book (shown here) comes with those stickers in a larger, die-cut format and many of them are signed by the artists

We are trying to raise funds so that we can produce the first of many museum-quality exhibitions worldwide that showcase the amazing amount of material we've collected. The first show will be in NYC and coincide with the Armory fair. We'll then proceed on to Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and beyond. This includes but is not limited to stickers from obscure and seminal Punk Rock and Hardcore, Hip-Hop and rave/electronic culture, early skate, streetware brands, graffiti, political and social campaigns, profiles on both fine high-end gallery artists that are not necessarily known for creating stickers (EG. Damian Hirst & Jenny Holzer) as well as anonymous street artists. These will be shown in conjunction with objects and artifacts pulled from artists' and collectors' personal archives. We will also be featuring photography, video, music performances and new art created specifically for the show that highlight the history and significance of stickers in pop culture. Just a few of the thousands of artists, known and unknown, that are featured in the show include:

While on tour we're hoping to collect even more stickers in order to expand the sticker database we've already started. This database will be available online and via an iPod app which is being launched in December of 2010.

Please donate to help us produce the NYC show in March!
