The D. James Dee Archive of Contemporary Art
Artstor has published more than 1000 images from the D. James Dee Archive of Contemporary Art in the Digital Library.
The complete Archive includes more than 100,000 images of work by Claes Oldenburg, Robert Gober, Hannah Wilke, Tauba Auerbach, Glenn Ligon, Rudolf Stingel, Sherrie Levine, Andy Warhol, and countless others. These photographs were taken from the 1970s through 2013 by James Dee the “SoHo photographer” for the artists or for the gallery where they were exhibited: Deitch Projects, Paula Cooper Gallery, Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, and DC Moore.
More than half of the Dee images in Artstor were collaboratively cataloged by a zealous group of users in a crowdsourcing project. The selection includes works on paper by Donald Judd and Brice Marden exhibited at Susan Sheehan Gallery, drawings by Oldenburg and Gober, fashion sketches by Stephen Sprouse shown at Deitch Projects, painted photographs by Duane Michals shown at DC Moore, and paintings by Dan Walsh.
