Gregory Fong - xoxo, 2010

"For a group exhibition in New York featuring many young artists, I invited 23 teenagers from well-respected Manhattan private schools to network and socialize at the opening. Inspired by the urban savviness of the teen-aged characters on the TV drama ‘Gossip Girl’, my hope was that the teens would gain a greater knowledge of what it means to be a pre-career artist.

Beyond the curator, only the teens themselves were aware of their status as an artwork."
