Outside Deitch Projects, 9/3/9, Wayne Coe drew a '60s male erotic film advertisement on the pavement in black diamond sand, peppering it with the names of contemporary fine artists, including Kehinde Wiley, whose show opened that evening. During the excitement, Coe earned a feature article in Insight Magazine and Charlie Finch's rave review on Artnet. The end of the evening was punctuated by the first intentional erasing of Wayne Coe's Manhattan Sand Painting Project, traditionally erased by the chance feet of pedestrians over a period of days.
Coe's work deals with the transience of community and magnetically attracts the history of the art community, social and even real estate history, as it relates to the largely rubbed out history of outlaw porn.
