Months before Art Metropole’s first retail catalogue was published, “featuring an array of 27 publications, 2 recordings and 23 videotapes” and a whole two years before Printed Matter was established in New York, here we have an important and extended list/catalogue titled ‘Art Languages’ featuring over 200 (!) ‘Artists’ Books, Boxes, Objects, Records, Small Press Publications, Exhibition Catalogues, Concrete and Visual Poetry’. This catalogue is one of the earliest of its kind published in North America. It includes numerous pieces by Baldessari, Barry, Byars, Huebler, Johnson, Kosuth, Lewitt, Ruscha and Thek along with works by Beuys, Baruchello, Broodthaers, Dibbets, Filliou, Gomringer, Miralda, Roth, Thomkins et al. A wide selection from Minimalism to Fluxus.
