Launch for “Eternal Boy” by artist Bradford Kessler at Miami Basel
December 7, 2013
At this year’s Miami Basel we are pleased to hold a launch for a new multiple titled “Eternal Boy” by artist Bradford Kessler, Saturday, Dec 7, 6-8 PM. “Eternal Boy” depicts a 360 degree profile of Bart Simpson in the aeroceramica sculpture style most famously noted in the 1933 bust “Continuous profile of Mussolini” by Italian Futurist Renato Bertelli.
Kessler’s portrait comes in two halves for display, each hand casted in solid black plastic from an original 3D print. Much of Kessler’s work exercises a spirit of renewal as signified by the Jungian archetype of Puer Aeternus or Eternal Boy. Kessler’s new edition casts the iconic character Bart Simpson as a twenty-first century child god, prince of youthful freedom, always searching for adventure. Eternal Boy is an infinite edition each individually numbered and signed on a unique accompanying box.
The launch will take place at Printed Matter’s booth T03, near Bookstore Entrance Hall B, Miami Basel.
