      DAVID HAMMONS (1943 - )
      The Man Nobody Killed.

      Color screenprint printed on cardboard, 1986. 280x216 mm; 11x8 1/2 inches. Edition of 200. From Cobalt Myth Mechanics, 1986/1987, Eye Magazine, #14. Published by Eye Publications, New York.

      While from an edition, each screenprint of The Man Nobody Killed is a unique variation. Each were printed on different found cardboard material, sometimes with additional printed surfaces or collaged material. The subject of the work is Michael Stewart, a New York graffiti artist who died as a result of injuries sustained while in police custody following an arrest by the New York City Transit Police. Another copy of this artist book, a spiral bound periodical, is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
