Gap Whitney Museum artist edition t-shirts: by Kenny Scharf, Barbara Kruger, Chuck Close, Kiki Smith, etc., and Sarah Sze.
Why couldn’t Barbara Kruger appear in her own ad?
I wonder if the artists are being tagged as sell-outs for this, or is that concept too late-20th-century? The t-shirts are quite nice so I myself would not really make that accusation, although doing freelance design work for the Gap might well undermine one’s credibility as a scourge of corporate capitalism, if that’s your thing. (Is there a philanthropic angle here? $ to fund developing artists, hint hint?)
At $28 I’m tempted by the Glenn Ligon.

I totally got suckered in and bought a kiki smith (sold out online so I had to go to the store) and a Sarah Sze. Gotta support Sarah…on day two of the sale (may 16th) every size was still available.
I’m pretty sure there’s nothing except self-promotion for the gap in this (look at us! People will think we’re relevant again!)
