JELL-O HEAD

Press release:

You’re invited to “JELL-O HEAD,” an exhibition by Andrew Salomone featuring a portrait of Bill Cosby made from approximately 1,000 JELL-O shots. The exhibition will take place on Bill Cosby’s birthday, Sunday July 12th, starting around 4 pm, at Buoy Gallery. The audience is invited to enjoy the exhibition as they consume it and are welcome to as many JELL-O shots as they wish (over 21s only). Plans have also been made to broadcast the event live over the internet so that viewers at home can witness the gradual destruction of Bill Cosby‘s likeness and possibly some of the audience member’s sobriety, as the title of the exhibition is a reference to both the medium and the mental state of some of the audience members on the following morning.

Thanks to everyone who helped me with this project, especially Al from Buoy Gallery, Mike from the Music Hall, and Raj from Tulsi (who let me use his kitchen and refrigerator to make the JELL-O shots).
