Jeremy Blake, born today in 1971, tragically killed himself after his girlfriend, Theresa Duncan, killed herself. The story gripped the art world (and the rest of the world) for a long time. Read about it here in NYMag… RIP.

This image is a still from Blake’s Century 21, from the Winchester trilogy, 2004. It’s in SFMOMA’s collection and will be on view in Los Altos starting next month.

Adapting to new technological speeds is part of the artist’s job. – digital artist Jeremy Blake (watch). Blake would have turned 42 today. 

We will be presenting Jeremy Blake’s Winchester trilogy as part of Project Los Altos, our upcoming SFMOMA On the Go exhibition in Silicon Valley.
