GREENBERG, Jill. End Times.

Paul Kopeikin Gallery, no date (2006). First edition. Exhibition catalogue. A series of photographs featuring toddlers, that was the subject of controversy. The work featured stylized hyper real closeups of children’s faces contorted by various emotional distresses. The pieces were titled to reflect Greenberg’s frustration with both the Bush administration and Christian Fundamentalism in the United States. The method for getting the children to cry, in some cases, achieved by offering the children candy, then taking it away, spurred allegations of unethical conduct and provoked the submission of numerous complaints to the art gallery that hosted a public showing of Greenberg’s work. A near fine copy, very minor edgewear, in faux leather texture and rounded corners. Published in an edition of 1000 numbered copies although scarcer in commerce than the limitation would suggest.
