This limited edition silkscreen print is based on an original painting created during Marka27's artist residency at MASS MoCA. During this time Marka and Gary Lichtenstein bonded over Mexican muralism, street culture, and contemporary art. A collaboration was inevitable and both Gary and Marka knew their love for experimentation, silkscreening, and Mexican culture was a recipe for something truly special and authentic.

IN THE STUDIO

This piece is inspired by predictions made in 1981 by 31 graduate students at the University of Houston who were studying future trends. Their research aimed to explore the societal impacts of achieving immortality through medical advancements. For this work, I focused on one specific prediction about personality traits. I merged the written language of this prediction with a pattern system of my own invention, correlating the visual structure with the linguistic framework. The work contains a numerical coding system, mirrored at the start and end. I'm interested in patterns of language that embody humanity's desire to foresee the future -- how does the feeling of the future manifest in words on a page?

"John Lennon, Fillmore East, NYC, August 1972," Bob Gruen, 2024

 

Silkscreen on 320 gram Coventry Rag paper

In 1972, John Lennon and Yoko Ono conceived a concert at Madison Garden called “One to One.” It was a benefit for the Willowbrook State School in Staten Island, a facility for mentally and physically challenged children. John, Yoko and Elephant’s Memory were headliners along with Stevie Wonder, Roberta Flack and Sha Na Na. Rehearsals were held at the famed Fillmore East in NYC and on one August afternoon, Bob captured this thoughtful shot of John on the stairs to the dressing room. There is something very quiet… very reflective about this moment in time… one that precedes what would be John’s last full-length concert performance in New York City. 

 

Bob Gruen met John Lennon in 1971, shortly after he moved to New York. For the next nine years, Bob worked as John’s personal photographer and captured a wide variety of diverse moments in John’s career and in his family life. Bob and John became friends and the strength of that friendship is visible in every photograph that Bob took.
