Sept. 11, 2001. Though much of his oeuvre was destroyed, the legacy of Bruce High Quality lives on, according to the artist's wishes, via the efforts of the Bruce High Quality Foundation. Bruce High Quality's short life was a testament to the contemporary possibilities of social sculpture. Only Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol compared in their conflation of art with the systems of modern media. It is through the tireless efforts of the Foundation that the artist's wishes continue to be wished.
Pictured here is the death mask of the fictional artist Bruce High Quality, namesake of the anonymous collaborative known as The Bruce High Quality Foundation. Behind him the masked members of the Foundation re-enact Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon" in their tri-color painting "The Bachelors of Avignon."
