RICHARD ARTSCHWAGER, BLP, 1978
each 22,2 x 8,9 cm
2 stickers, text on envelope (10,4 x 24 cm)
edition unknown
published by Clocktower, New York, USA, 1978

 

The two stickers in white and black come in an envelope with offset printed text from an original type written description used for his installation at the Clocktower in New York, 1978. In 1967 Richard Artschwager introduces his Blips for the first time as an oval-shaped graffiti sign. These signs have been installed either vertical or horizontal as a device to focus on or draw attention to e.g. an empty gallery wall or a building front not commonly receptive for art.
