Some of the People,
All of the Time
David Levine’s Brooklyn Museum exhibition “Some of the People, All of the Time” was cited by the New York Times as one of the 10 best shows of 2018. The exhibition included a series of new photographic prints as well as a curated selection of object’s from the Museum’s collection. Its centerpiece was a new monologue, written by Levine and delivered by a rotating cast of actors, on the theory and practice of the fake crowd and the possibility of becoming a “real person.” The project, which earned Levine a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship, was also featured in Art in America and Cultured, and the monologue text was published in n+1.
Modeled after INSTEAD, a radical New York-based publication from the late 1940s, Levine’s broadside presents a unique printing of this monologue alongside a select number of images from the exhibition.
