Jim Dine, ‘This is How I Remember Now (Signed)’, 2008, Alpha 137 Gallery
Jim Dine, ‘This is How I Remember Now (Signed)’, 2008, Alpha 137 Gallery

Extremely rare when hand signed!
This poster was produced in conjunction with a 2008 German exhibition of Jim Dine's photographs. Jim Dine personally signed it for us in 2012 at a poetry reading that the artist gave at the Dia Art Foundation, so provenance is direct and impeccable. The text on the poster reads "This Is How I Remember Now Portraits", with a portrait of the artist juxtaposed in the background - and is perhaps as a commentary on the elusiveness of memory in life, art and photography. The poster is accompanied by a copy of the flyer publicizing the event where Jim Dine signed it.

About Jim Dine

Although often associated with both Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism, Jim Dine did not identify with a specific movement, producing a vast oeuvre of paintings, drawings, works on paper, sculpture, poetry, and performances. Emerging as a pioneer (together with Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenburg, and Robert Whitman) of New York’s Happenings of the 1960s, Dine would carry the spontaneous energy of this movement throughout his style, which emphasized the exploration of everyday life. Personally significant objects were Dine’s primary motifs, as in his iconic series of hearts and robes. He championed a return to figuration after a period of more concept-dominated works, and is considered an important figure in Neo-Dada and a forerunner of Neo-Expressionism. “The figure is still the only thing I have faith in in terms of how much emotion it’s charged with and how much subject matter is there,” he once said.

American, b. 1935, Cincinnati, Ohio, based in New York, Paris and Walla Walla, Washington
