John Baldessari pillow cases

John Baldessari
The Thing Quarterly, Issue 22
San Francisco, USA: The Thing Quarterly, 2014
33 x 25 cm.
Edition size unknown

Issue 22 of The Thing Quarterly consists of two 100% cotton sateen pillowcases featuring an image of a woman clutching a pillow. The black and white image is taken from a Hollywood film still in Baldessari's collection and has been silkscreened on each pillowcase with environmentally-friendly, water-based ink.  The pillowcases are standard-sized and envelope-style, with a thread count of 320. 

The work was intended as an open edition, but The Thing Quarterly folded in 2017, after operating for just under a decade. The edition is unsigned, though the artist signed a few copies which were sent out at random to purchasers.

  1. I was been framed at my place of work of stealing company funds, some documents were made up showing that i was responsible for the stolen funds, I was eventually sacked and i was locked up untill i was able to pay back the funds that was stolen, Then i explained my situation to a friend of mine who came to visit and he took it upon himself to make sure i was freed, He hired a group of private investigators who investigated the case and brought out the original documents out showing the real culprit and i was free at last i was later promoted at my place of work, Contact Brillianthackers800 AT gmail DOT com and also via WhatsApp +14106350697 so you can share your own victory story.
