The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston acquired the first COLLECTOR'S EDITION of The Unchosen Ones (ed 20) in pre-sale this week. The project features photographs by R. J. Kern and a cloth clamshell box and print folio created in collaboration with Keith Taylor in Minneapolis, MN. The Artist Book Edition includes essays by independent curator Alison Nordström, PhD and Joe Scapanski, Minnesota State Fair Board of Managers. The pre-sale began on April 15 and books will ship May 2018 in conjunction with a solo exhibition at Klompching Gallery in New York from May 9 - June 30, 2018.
This is the second acquisition of work created R. J. Kern by the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. The first included the COLLECTOR'S EDITION of The Sheep at the Goats in 2017.
