Art on the move = Mapping Pizza

Meg Duguid and Catie Olson’s held an art moving parade. On April 30th Duguid and Olson moved Meg’s art collection from her old apartment to her new apartment that is located just three blocks away. For this process they used cardboard, tape, a dolly, a little red wagon, manpower, a map, BLACK STILETTOS, and properly garnished pizza.

Duguid and Olson’s two- person parade of packaged art works followed a route from 2846 West 21st street, to 2226 South Marshall Blvd. Each group of works mimicked a lone post-modern parade float of carefully curated boxes that were pushed, pulled, and carried by the high-heeled clad duo. The works transported ranged from small to large, weighing form under a pound to a 250 pound bronze work. Artist work in the move include Andrew Natale, Frank Pollard, Amanda Ross-Ho, Bobby Burg, Siebren Versteeg, Jessica Peterson, Diego Bobby, Jack Sloss, Erik Brown, Stanlyn Breve, Terra Fuller, Iain Muirhead, Elisa Lendvay, Mike Wolf, Dominique Rey, and Brian Taylor.

Utilizing their mapped route Duguid and Olson created and eatable map created from a rectangular cheese pizza with pepperoni dots representing the trail they took on the with artwork parade. Duguid and Olson then kicked off their BLACK STILETTOS, eat the pizza map, and drink beer as a time honored tradition of moving.
