This is a large white paper shopping bag with a text work from March 31, 1966 and again published in 2001.
Dan Graham signed 29 copies for Art Metropole, apparently he also signed a limited number for different institutions. Nevertheless it is remarkable that this 1960’s text has been authorized again by his hand written signature on this small edition. Conceptual art created space for gigantic encompassing ideas compressed into a little text. Here a characteristic example of Conceptual art zooms in from macro to micro images.
