“Bike of the Month Club”

pulse-subFrom Karin Nelson of The New York Times’ Style Section, Sunday 12/27:

Forty years after Joe Goode created “L.A. Artists in Their Cars,” his iconic and nearly impossible-to-find calendar, comes the East Coast version. “Artists on Their Bicycles: New York” was produced by the Swiss Institute, photographed by Lukas Wassmann, and features 14 of the city’s artists, captured on their preferred mode of transport. Philip Lorca diCorcia, cycling down Greenwich Avenue, starts off the new year. Maurizio Cattelan, dressed as a mechanic in a bike repair shop, was adamant about being Mr. September. (It’s his birthday month.) October has Ryan McGinley maneuvering precariously around a pile of cabbages; and in December, Cindy Sherman and David Byrne (who is so enthusiastic about bicycling, he designed nine bike racks for the city) cruise down the West Side Highway.

“Artists on Their Bicycles: New York,” $45, is available in a numbered edition of 500 at www.swissinstitute.net
