Cremaster Fanatics may be interested in the proposed Temporary Museum of Vaseline in Perth Amboy, a project by Jimbo Blachly & Lytle Shaw currently on view in the Companion exhibition at the EFA Project Space in Manhattan. Perth Amboy, New Jersey was the site of the first Vaseline factory, and Blachly & Shaw have been investigating a possible naturally-occurring "Vaseline spring" in the region. Their proposed museum will teach visitors about the history of Vaseline and promises to include artwork from contemporary artists such as Matthew Barney and Paul McCarthy.
Blachly & Shaw will give a presentation on their museum next Wednesday, February 10 from 6:30 - 8 pm at the EFA Project Space. See EFA's web site for more information.
