Some guy I’ve never heard of is selling fancy Crass memorabilia for a lot of money today.

Some guy I’ve never heard of is selling fancy Crass memorabilia for a lot of money today. Crass have nothing to do with it whatsoever and are “dubious.”

CRASS ART SHOW
18th February – 18th March, 2011
Opening reception Friday, February 18th, 6-8pm
Andrew Roth Gallery
160A East 70th Street
New York, NY 10021

More info HERE.

UPDATE: Went to the opening ready to give him a “face full of verbal” as the Brits say, but what can you do? He’s not making Crass-inspired art and selling it as authentic for millions. He’s taking his own collection of Crass memorabilia, all of which was made available to the public, and selling it as his own — which it is. He was there when these items came out and he had the foresight to store them for 35 years. It would be nice to force him to donate to the Dial House fund but forced benevolence is for Socialists.

I talked to the curator who said they’re charging $20,000 and already have a few offers. Go figure.
