THIS LIMITED EDITION IS SOLD OUT.

Since the mid-1980s, this Brooklyn-based artist has been known for her photographic works that deal with issues relating to racial and sexual identity, relationships, notions of the body, and methods of communication. Her New Museum Edition was created at a time when the artist had begun to extend her conceptual photographic work by experimenting with conceptual installation art. This untitled triptych consists of a fragile pair of glass wishbones, accompanied by a photograph on linen of a broken wishbone, and a text etched on glass. It reads: “Clearly if you got what you wished you know you’d end up wanting another wish.”
