ABOUT THE WORK
The legacy of Rene Ricard — poet, painter, actor, and art critic — is diverse, riveting and elusive. A cultural fixture in New York City, Ricard's predilections towards high society and downtown cool forged the associations which transformed his early anonymity into his full-fledged reputation as an art world tastemaker. In The Darkest Day Ricard superimposed his poem over a nineteenth century photograph of Henry David Thoreau's Walden Pond. This facsimile edition is faithful to the same printing methods the artist used in later years. We are pleased to have collaborated with the artist's estate to create The Darkest Day, a print edition of 125 based on his painting of the same name. The release commemorates Exhibition A's 10th Anniversary, as Ricard was one of the first artists to launch an edition with us back in 2010.
