John Riegert

Guest curated by Brett Yasko

In February, 2015, Brett Yasko asked 252 Pittsburgh artists to each do a portrait of the same person: John Riegert. What followed has been a journey through studios, restaurants, group sittings, museums, universities, parks, cemeteries, fishing holes, artists’ homes and John’s own home. The culmination will be an exhibition at SPACE in the summer of 2016 where, among the portraits, John will act as docent—telling stories of each artist and their work, as well as stories of his own.

A Tumblr of the project’s progress is here: johnriegert.tumblr.com

A full-color catalogue will be produced. It will feature all 252 portraits, an essay by Eric Lidji (who has followed the entire project as a fly on the wall), photos of the interactions between John and the artists, as well as a section dedicated to John’s art and writing.
