Earlier this year, Jessie Rauch installed her Celebrity Catastrophe wallpaper at the RISD MFA graduate show. Her black and white tiled inkjet prints showcased her selection of 8 celebrities who were involved in well publicized scandals.
Who can forget Paris Hilton and her sex video? Or Mel Gibson’s drinking debacle? Also featured are Lindsay Lohan, Michael Richards, Tom Cruise, Anna Nicole Smith, Britney Spears and Ted Haggard. Rauch certainly created “a collective narrative of greed, addiction, exhibitionism and racism.”
