Peter Coffin’s Imaginary Concerts is the result of his experimenting with Colby Poster Printing Co.’s patent eyeball-attracting inks and then inviting aritsts and friends to create imaginary line ups of concerts.
Published in partnership with Printed Matter, Imaginary Concerts collects and displays over 70 submissions against the hazy, horizontal color bands encouraging your cranium to creep its deepest concert fantasies.
Peter Coffin has mounted over thirty solo exhibitions with museums and galleries including the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington DC), The Barbican (London), City Hall Park (New York City), and the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art (San Francisco). Coffin’s art can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Guggenheim Museum, among other institutions. Music looms large in Coffin’s work and mind.
