Important Emerging Artist, 2004

Emily Floyd's work for the Gertrude Editions continues her investigation into the ways in which artists, curators and audiences learn to internalize and reproduce art discourse. Parodying the hype that can surround young artists, Important Emerging Artist provides a humorous and insightful commentary on the cliches used to market emerging artists.
