11.27.09 Will Sherman

Though decorative wall calendars are pretty much obsolete, the Swiss Institute is releasing a “cutting edge” version at next week’s art world clusterf#$% in Miami. Fulfilling basic timekeeping needs, the 2010 calendar features portraits of “today’s most famous artists on their bikes,” including David Byrne, Ryan McGinley and Terry Richardson and others. Shot by photographer Lukas Wassmann, the calendar, “Artists on Their Bicycles New York,” can be bought for $45 in a limited edition of 500 or just downloaded for free.
