Black & White

Money For Food Press, New York, 1982. Ephemera, 11×8.5”. Condition: Near Fine. Rare Fluxus Artist’s book gathering 36 important artists including Lawrence Weiner, Brian Buczak, Ray Johnson, Laurie Anderson, Geoffrey Hendricks, Nancy Spero, and Andy Warhol, among others. Table of Contents states “one hundred copies of ‘Black & White’ were assembled July 2, 1982.” Book is arranged as: front cover with original collage, table of contents, 39 loose sheets (artworks), stiff board as a back cover; includes a pumping rod plastic binder clip to hold the sheets together. Each artist has photocopied their work on various paper stocks. In two instances, original art is included: Buczak’s “Kneeling Buddha” (pencil and acrylic, signed on verso) and Henricks’ “Mystery Photo Triptych” (tri-fold card with three photos, unsigned). Money for Food Press was originally created to expand the practices of its founders’ artwork, which was rooted in Fluxus and Ray Johnson’s New York Correspondence School. Money for Food Press embraced an accessible, democratic, do-it-yourself practice that encouraged the breakdown of boundaries separating art and life. Some smudges on the cover; sheets bright and clean. An outstanding example of the democratic and do-it-yourself attitude of these artists. (#KC15826) $1,500.00
