To the Editor:

The poor quality of the reproductions accompanying Cherise Smith’s fascinating article, “Re-member the Audience: Adrian Piper’s Mythic Being Advertisements” (Art Journal 66, 1 (Spring 2007), 46 – 58) is very regrettable, and ironical in a discussion that extols Piper’s supposed marketing and promotional prowess. Sharp, clear images, drawn from the same digital photographs we supplied to Art Journal, can be viewed at the Adrian Piper Research Archive’s Online Galleries at


We invite your readers to visit these pages for accurate representations of the full-page Village Voice ads reproduced in Art Journal.

Yours sincerely,
