    Joe Brainard (1942 -1994) was an American artist and writer associated with the New York School. After moving to New York in 1960, he soon became part of a community of poets and artists that included John Ashbery, Ted Berrigan, Frank O'Hara, Ron Padgett, Anne Waldman and Andy Warhol. Brainard’s innovative and expansive body of work includes assemblage, collage, drawing, and painting, as well as designs for book and album covers, theatrical sets and costumes.

    Brainard is best known for his small scale collages and works on paper. Although he knew Andy Warhol and considered him among his favorite artists (along with de Kooning), Brainard’s works are often humorous and earnest, in contrast to the cool detachment of much of the Pop art of the period. His work combines a technical skill and gift for composition along with seemingly endless invention and imagination.

    Joe Brainard’s artistic recognition came early on with his first solo show at the Alan Gallery in 1965. Over the next decade he exhibited regularly and received critical acclaim. His work has been included in a number of gallery and museum exhibition across the United States such as MoMA P.S.1 and the Berkeley Art Museum. His work is also included in many notable private and public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of America Art, the Colby College Art Museum and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In addition to his many visual art accomplishments, Brainard also found recognition as a writer with his now legendary memoir "I Remember" (1970). His collected writings were published by The Library of America in 2012.
