Art Is Easy After Chiari is an Artist Edition in the form of a cap that features a design closely based on Italian artist Giuseppe Chiari’s work “Art Is Easy”, a series of lithograph prints realised for the 8th Biennale of Sydney in 1990. In re-staging Chiari’s work in the artist's name, as an adornment on a sellable cap, the work attempts to agitate understandings of skill and labour as they relate to notions of value.
