&: Daviet-Thery et Alice Dusapin vous invitent au lancement de la publication Allan Kaprow Posters
le mardi 5 mai à la Librairie Yvon Lambert de 18h à 20h.
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.
This publication is edited by Alice Dussapin and Christophe Daviet-Thery and Walther König
