Remember that little contest we had back in October to determine which design would be chosen for Hyperallergic’s very first t-shirt? Well, Duncan Alexander’s “T-shirts are the new galleries” took first prize, and now it’s for sale!
The t-shirt, made out of a comfy 100% cotton (I can attest, I’m wearing one now), features Alexander’s slogan in our signature Hyperallergic font, and is made for those self-deprecating situations when a snarky dig at the contemporary art world is just what you need.
No detail is left unattended to: instead of a tag that only scratches your skin and gets annoying, Hyperallergic’s unisex t-shirts are emblazoned with a screen-printed H logo on the inside of the collar, along with a note to the shirt’s origins: Made in Mexico but conceived in Brooklyn. Take a look!
I bet you’d also like to see it on some real people, right? Well that’s where Hyperallergic’s staff come in. Please enjoy myself, at left, and Hyperallergic publisher Veken Gueyikian wearing the tee. Aside from bloggers, we are also professional blogger-models, or bloggels. There’s also a full picture of the t-shirt here for those who just can’t get enough.
The first Hyperallergic t-shirt is available for purchase starting RIGHT NOW at our Hyperallergic store. By taking home a shirt, you not only support all the work we do here, you also rep the contrarian attitude we have towards the big bad corporate art world. We could all use a little more humor in our contemporary art, right?
