With a wide selection of images, this publication, designed by Coline Sunier and Charles Mazé, documents Kaprow’s posters, a lesser-known side of his work, produced between 1953 for his first show at the Hansa Gallery, New York and 1996 at Kunsthalle Palazzo, Liestal. Most of these posters were designed by Allan Kaprow and are characterized by their aesthetic quality, the earliest ones in particular a combination of hand-lettered text and drawings and the later ones of photographs and typographic text in a minimalist style.
More than merely advertising Happenings or Activities, these posters act as scores/tools for the participants to the Happenings and as everyday objects that blur the boundaries between art and life.

about

Christophe Daviet-Thery is a bookseller and publisher in Paris, often questioning the exhibition, use and representation of books. In 2009, the Swiss collector, Christoph Schifferli, was invited to curate an exhibition at his gallery. The show was called “Books on Books”, and presented 26 artists’ books that were, in one way or another, about books or their representation, including work from Bruce Nauman (Burning Small Fires, 1968) to Batia Suter (Parallel Encyclopedia, 2009).

The same year, he asked the graphic designer, Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié, to oversee the catalogue, even if it would exist as a book independent of the exhibition. It addressed the issue of reactivating the exhibition in book form.

Continuing in the spirit of the above exhibition, and as an echo and apparition in the context of an art book fair, the work presented has been chosen as meta: books within books, books using imagery from books, as if in a game of mirrors.
