Scott Hug's My Love was originally commissioned for the group show If I told you you were beautiful, would you date me on the regular?, curated by Shandaken Projects director Nicholas Weist. Artists responded to the eponymous lyric from Justin Timberlake's song My Love (which asked how little the star could offer in return for fans' devotion) by salvaging pieces of hegemonic culture and modifying them so they could never re-enter the mainstream. Hug pastiched an early photograph of Timberlake from the 'N Sync days with the entertainer's name and signature to create this "fan poster." Best hung unframed, with pushpins.
