Gallery Mondays: Michael Shvo and Paul Kasmin Gallery’s #GettyStation

If you needed a good laugh today, you’re welcome.

I remember walking passed this public exhibit in Chelsea during the fall of 2013. I was on my way to an art gallery for a job assignment, but I didn’t notice this lovely faux gas station until I walked passed it a second time on my way back home.

The exhibit is called Getty Station, a public art project presented by Michael Shvo and Paul Kasmin Gallery, which features the “moutons” (French for “sheep”) from late artist François-Xavier Lalanne’s Moutons de Laine.

You can imagine how quickly my face of utter confusion quickly turned into the face of a girl who had just been ultimately trolled as I stopped to take some photos.

I’m sure all the drivers in cars passing by the exhibit in desperate need of gas were pretty upset about this.
