The new shiny covered issue of PIN UP has a very nice review of TERTIUM QUID which has almost gotten lost in the shuffle of attention on the Georg Jensen book. Click on the clipping to see it large enough to read. Click on the TQ title to buy the book.
Our new favorite magazine has a big ad for TERTIUM QUID, our collection of paired vintage press photos. Click on their logo to see what Whitewall is up to right now. And click on the photos below, to go our website where you can spend all your money buying photos just like these, or these very ones, in fact.
I’m heading over to the International Center for Photography right now to pick up another copy of TERTIUM QUID. Since I’m just learning to crawl, this might take me a few minutes. I’m coming from Brooklyn, after all. But, hey, ICP’s a big deal. Maybe Annie Liebowitz will be there. I love her work. Click on me to enjoy my first forward crawl.
Race over there right now. Maybe they only have three copies left. Or you could click on the pic to buy it at mossPOP. Don’t get us wrong. We’re really pleased that it’s at MoMA, but a sale is a sale.
Until the end of the day tomorrow, Friday, August 15, they’ll be waiting, at EDELMAN ARTS, right up on the gallery wall, with the rest of the photos in TERTIUM QUID. They know how busy you are, and while, sure, they were disappointed you weren’t able to call, they’re just hoping you can make a little time for them before it’s over. They do love you, you know. They always have. And they talk about you all the time, and wonder how you’re doing, and if the relationship is working out, and how you’re doing since the promotion. And they’re fine, really they are. You absolutely do not need to worry about them. But if you could stop by, even for a few minutes, it would mean so much to them.
It’s no good sitting alone in your room. Life is a cabernet, old chum. Get out of the house and run over to EDELMAN ARTS TONIGHT AT 6PM to hear Murray talk about TERTIUM QUID for the last time. And see the exhibition, because it’s closing on Friday! As Lucille Ball once said: “You only regret the things you didn’t do, Desi.” So don’t be Netflixing those soaps tonight. You’re not a cat. You only get one life. Live it as a lover of vintage American press photos.
God knows we’ve tried to keep you informed. We’ve warned you. We’ve given you the dates. We’ve sent message after message. But at the end of the day, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him show up on Wednesday at 6pm at Edelman Arts to hear Murray talk about TERTIUM QUID, for THE LAST TIME . And this is the LAST WEEK you can see those amazing photographs. The exhibition closes on Friday. Remember when you missed Follies in 1971. I rest my case. Don’t repeat that mistake. We’re only going to say this one more time, until we say it again tomorrow. LAST CHANCE for TERTIUM QUID.
It may not be the Second Coming, but it is the second in a series of two talks about TERTIUM QUID that Murray’s going to be doing. Wednesday August 13 at 6pm at Edelman Arts. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Somewhat later Murray created TERTIUM QUID and that’s what he’s planning to talk about. For God’s sake, go. Learn something. OR, click on that little girl’s soul, I mean sole, to buy this photograph.
Are you planning to take advantage of your last chance to hear Murray talk about the TERTIUM QUID photographs, Wednesday August 13 or not? 6pm at Edelman Arts. Be there for the backstory and the subtext and the narrative and the insight and the inside scoop and the unvarnished truth about the way things were and how they are now. Or, on the other hand, you could skip all that and stay home and binge watch season three of Homeland, again. I know where I’ll be, and it does not involve Carrie Mathison’s bipolar disorder. Or, you could click on the tower-any tower–to buy this pair of photos at tertiumquid.net.
Here’s Murray explaining things to Carla Bruni (well, it could be. She was French, after all, that woman.) Those are TERTIUM QUID photos on the wall and Murray is explaining where they came from and what a “photo morgue” is. “Photo merde?” CB asked. “In a way,” was his considered response. Anyway, French people aside, Murray will be explaining the project tonight at the gallery, and you (vous) can come along for the ride. Click on CB’s watch (a present from Nicholas, no doubt) for the details of where and when. Or, here for more on TERTIUM QUID. A bientôt.
