For Sale

What makes an artist tick? What makes him glue old bottle caps to a photograph of his dead grandmother and then piss all over it?

Ask Gregory Sale, who -- while he doesn’t necessarily do any of these things -- is not only an artist, but the latest artist to be chosen for the ASU Art Museum’s Social Studies program. The series provides a studio gallery to a visiting artist, who’s asked to not only publicly display his process, but to collaborate with other artists, students, faculty and anyone else they fancy. Sale’s residency commences in February, but he’ll speak about it Friday.
