Allan McCollum’s THANKS are 3 3/4” l x 1” h tablets  bearing the word “THANKS”, sold in packs of five, each in a different color,  red, yellow, green, black and gold. Inspired by McCollum’s renowned Visible  Markers Series, in which McCollum explores his notion of the art object as  something that obtains it’s significance through the process of  its exchange, rather than merely through its making and its presentation.

The THANKS lend a physical form to a very common verbal gesture.   Allan McCollum has exhibited extensively in one-person and group  exhibitions both nationally and internationally. His work has been  featured recently in the exhibitions “Museum as Muse” and  “Objects of Desire: The Modern Still Life” at the Museum of Modern Art, at the  White House in the exhibition “Twentieth Century American  Sculpture”, and in Paris at the Pompidou Center’s “L’Informe: Mode  d’Emploi”.

McCollum’s work appears in the permanent collections of 63 Museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco,  The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, The Metropolitan Museum of  Art, New York, The Pompidou Center in Paris, the Sprengel Museum in  Hanover, Germany and the New Tokyo Metropolitan Museum in Japan.
