Ugo Rondinone: I ♥︎ John Giorno was a sprawling, multi-part exhibition that presented the extraordinary life and work of the poet, artist, activist and muse, John Giorno. Encompassing thirteen venues across Manhattan, Red Bull Arts participated in this city-wide celebration, presenting Giorno’s audio and visual works, including his visionary Dial-A-Poem, his iconic screen print painting series made in collaboration with his longtime friend and designer Mark Michaelson, sound poems created with audio engineer Bob Bielecki, and more. We produced a newly re-mastered John Giorno Band LP artist edition “I’m Rock Hard" (1982–1987), and a series of I ♥︎ John Giorno merchandise.
