Gigi Gaston: The Black Flower

Gigi Gaston: The Black Flower Artist / illustrator / art director Josh Gosfield has an amazing exhibit coming up at the Steven Kasher Gallery that will delight all fans of archival design. Gosfield created a fictional character, Gigi Gaston, a fabulous 60s French pop star, and then chronicled her in a series of created posters, album covers, magazine covers, articles, and videos. You'll swear it's the real thing, and maybe it is. The albums and magazines chronicle Gigi's rise and fall, and love and hate affair with celebrity media. SPD members will delight in Gosfield's attention to detail and his loving recreations of period publications. 

All the material will be presented at the gallery in large-size prints, and will also be available in a limited edition catalogue. Take a look at our sampler of Gigi Gaston materials, and then visit this site for the full collection. And dig this crazy video directed by "Godard." The show runs from October 22-November 25; opening is October 22, from 6-8pm. Steven Kasher Gallery is located at 521 W. 23rd St. in New York City.

    Josh was on WNYC's Soundcheck this afternoon to talk about Gigi's creation:

    There's a link to the show segment, the trailer, and one of her videos... It was a great listen.

    Great post Robert! Extremely interesting piece. Great concept with exceptional execution by Josh. I'm surprised I haven't heard of an idea like this before.
