EXTRATERRESTRIAL ABSTRACT ART DETECTED BY
Conceptual Artist Jonathon Keats to Curate First
Intergalactic Art Exposition
Concluding centuries of speculation about extraterrestrial intelligence, conceptual artist
Jonathon Keats has discovered that a radio signal detected by the Arecibo Observatory contains artwork
broadcast from deep space. Initially dismissed by researchers as meaningless, the transmission may be
the most significant addition to the artistic canon since the Mona Lisa, or even the Venus of Willendorf.
Painstakingly decoded by Mr. Keats, the artwork will be displayed for the first time on the planet's most
ubiquitous exhibition platform, currently in the hands of one third of the world population: the cellphone.
Distributed by special agreement with pioneering online art gallery StartMobile.net, the images will be
available for download as cellphone wallpaper. As Mr. Keats notes in his press release, "This is the
ultimate outsider art." Mr. Keats may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
