I ♥ My Attitude Collection: The Store

This shopping experience is an online version of I ♥ My Attitude Collection: The Store. The project was first presented as a solo exhibition by the Dumbo Art Center at the NADA Art Fair in Miami Beach in 2011.

These 2019 editions are based on original works produced in 2011.

Artist Statement:

For I ♥ My Attitude Collection: The Store, I presented my personal collection of mass-produced items, all inscribed with standardized, yet culturally tailored, statements of irreverence containing the word attitude. In a converted booth/boutique, I sold objects such as mugs, t-shirts, and key-chains printed with phrases such as, “If you don’t like my Brooklyn attitude, quit talking to me,” or “I Don’t Have an Attitude Problem, You Have a Perception Problem.” Playing with the desires of a collecting audience for whom the rarity or the price tag of an item often holds as much appeal as formal or conceptual ideas, I produced limited edition attitude artworks to be sold alongside the collected kitsch.

The project was made possible by this Kickstarter campaign.
