Issue 50 Money Summer 2013

Artist Project / Gold Dust

Peter Simensky

Cabinet’s new issue comes sprinkled with gold dust, courtesy of artist Peter Simensky. Visiting Cabinet HQ the day the issue arrived, Simensky scattered 7.9 grams of 24-karat gold over the magazines, an amount equal in value to the cost of printing the two pages allotted to his project.

Peter Simensky is a New York–based artist. Simensky’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; Project Row Houses, Houston; and Museum 52 and the Swiss Institute, New York. He was recently an artist-in-residence at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire.
