ARTFORUM review | other REVIEWS
Companies like Hallmark make greeting cards for hundreds of occasions, but so many are left out! House of Cards redresses this shortcoming. In 1992 the Museum of Modern Art, New York, invited me to do a one-person exhibition as part of its Projects series. I have been making satirical greeting cards from 1991 to today, but this was my chance to create a unique, provocative portrait of America in a large space on the main floor of a hugely attended museum. The 90 hand-painted greeting cards are a compendium of every awful, ignorant thing we do to one another. They are arranged in sections— Politics, The Economy, Racism, Religion, etc. — and push the envelope of acceptability and taste.
