Time for another round up of artist branded gifts. From the Barbara Kruger limited edition sunglasses via the Wim Delvoye Yoga Mat to the Joseph Kosuth Water Bottle, there is no end to what artists can be persuaded to do for the honour of the gift shop. For those who met Barbara Kruger and Joseph Kosuth on their visits to New Zealand the shift in tone is gob-smacking. We’ve come a long way but looking at this lot the artist-gift combo there's still a ways to go yet.
