Description

[New York]: The Junior Council of The Museum of Modern Art, 1973 (04), 21,3×9,4 cm. Oblong exhibition announcement card published in conjunction with a group show organised by the MoMA Art Lending Service. “The Art Lending Service provided the public with the opportunity of renting a piece of art for a two-month period before deciding whether to purchase the work or return it to the ALS. The ALS took a small commission on each work sold, which was used to staff and underwrite the expenses of the ALS”. Participating artists: Alighiero Boetti, Steve Gianakos, Keith Milow, Todd Papageorge, Pat Steir, John Tweddle, Richard Van Buren. Scarce piece of ephemera from one of the earliest appearances of Boetti’s work in the United States, only a month after his first solo show at the John Weber gallery (the first one in US).
