Gap presents Artist Editions T-Shirts Collection

May '08
Building on its long history of supporting the arts, Gap introduced Artist Editions T-Shirts, a limited edition collection of t-shirts designed by 13 of most influential contemporary artists, including Chuck Close, Jeff Koons, Marilyn Minter, Kiki Smith, Cai Guo-Qiang, Barbara Kruger, Ashley Bickerton, Kenny Scharf, Glenn Ligon, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Kerry James Marshall, Hanna Liden and Sarah Sze.

"We're honored to have the opportunity to partner with such a distinguished and diverse group of artists," said Marka Hansen, president of Gap brand North America.

"This collaboration celebrates the intersection of art and fashion and enables people to access contemporary art in a different way.

These 13 works of art speak the importance of creative expression and individuality, and we can't wait for our customers to experience them in their own way."

Gap worked in close partnership with the Whitney Museum of American Art and Art Production Fund to create the collection with the 13 artists, who are all previous Whitney Biennial participants.

The Whitney Biennial is a special exhibition held every two years at the Whitney Museum of American Art that features the most important contemporary art in the United States. Gap is a proud sponsor of the 2008 Whitney Biennial, currently on view at the Whitney until June 1, 2008.

"We're delighted to join with Gap on this project that celebrates contemporary American art with new work fromformer Whitney Biennial artists," said Adam D. Weinberg, the Whitney's Alice Pratt Brown Director.
