DoBeDo contributor Sean Vegezzi is releasing a booklet, ‘SCOTT’ this weekend in New York City.
Organised by Vegezzi, Spencer Tullis and Alec Tinmar, the publication is an attempt to place the societal fixation on archetypal characters of the urban environment within larger concepts of art history and contemporary theoretical frameworks.
The booklet, bound by black plastic spirals and protected by a clear cover, is a direct reference to the ‘pitch books’ given by investment banks to potential investors. White text sits on burgundy pages within the printed booklet. Interspersed throughout are quotes from architecture critic Montgomery Schuyler, presented as they were written in a private brochure printed for Frank Winfield Woolworth in 1913. The contributions included within ‘SCOTT’ are largely works of fiction; elaborations on biases and cartoonish stereotypes sprouted from unsavoury personal recollections.
‘SCOTT’ is released on Saturday February 6th 2016, inside of the atrium at 60 Wall Street.

DoBeDo is proud to announce the launch of Tshirt #017 in the ‘DoBeDo Photographers Series Tshirt Subscription’ – ‘The Curious, The Suckered and The Regulars’ by Sean Vegezzi.
“An erect penis goes up against the new 1 World Trade Center. It stands like a sentry over Lower Manhattan, self-assured that its presence symbolizes the defeat of New York grime of yore: open air sex markets, emotionally disturbed wanderers, perpetrators of both serious and petty crime. The cock’s message is not one of nostalgia, nor does it romanticize the idea of an unsafe city. A timely erection can outlive concrete, glass and steel.”
The T-shirt comes with a free poster with text by Sean Vegezzi, designed by Edward Quarmby.
DoBeDo contributor Sean Vegezzi is releasing a booklet, ‘JOEY’ this weekend in New York City.
“Joey”, an affectionate colloquialism naming a stereotype of New York City’s builders, was the inspiration for a reading that took place in December 2014 (eighty feet under Midtown Manhattan) inside of New York City Transit System’s 7 Line Extension Project.
This event, video document, and compilation of poems, essays, and songs are part of an ongoing celebration of those who construct and labor over the spaces we move through and around – not the architects, designers or developers – but the Joeys.
‘JOEY’ is released on Saturday 12th December 2015 outside of 34th Street – Hudson Yards 7 Train Station.
