        A colllection of slides taken by Nicholas Tresilian, a director of the APG. Taken at the RCA conference in 1976 and Documenta 6 at Kassal West Germany 1977.

      Self-published., London 1977 - Three boxes of colour slides taken by Nicholas Tresilian. One of APG events one of Documenta 6 and one of his own images labelled 'High Entropy Arrys', 'Thresholds', 'Occultations' and 'Death'. 376 slides in total, all in very good condition. Approx 30 are on the 1977 Royal College of Art seminar and presentation, featuring Steveni, L atham, Breakwell, Brisley, Tresilian and Coward etc. Approx 200 on Documenta 6 at Kassel: includes multiples images on Breakwell, Beuys, De Maria, Serra, Flanagan, 'Grey Men', Gerz, Dieter Rot, Anti-Documenta stunt, the Free International Universiity, Gilbert & George, Rinke, Nam June Paik , Richard Long, Marcel Broodthaers etc. Multiple shots of the outdoor sculptures and installations. Also multiples shots of Kassel and locality. The idea of Artist Placement stemmed from a group of UK artists, and was guided by John Latham and initiated by Barbara Steveni, who were experimenting with radical new forms of art. Directed by Steveni, the APG pioneered the concept of art in the social context. From the outset their notion of ‘placement’ acknowledged the marginalised position of the artist and sought to improve the situation. By enabling artists to engage actively in non-art environments, the APG shifted the function of art towards ‘decision-making’.Acting outside the conventional art gallery system, the APG attempted, through negotiation and agreement, to place artists within industry and government departments. The artist would become involved in the day-to-day work of the organisation and be paid a salary equal to that of other employees by the host organization, while being given the new role of maintaining sufficient autonomy to acting on an open brief. These placements resulted in a variety of artists’ reports, films, photographs, interviews, poetry and art installations. Artists of international repute, such as Keith Arnatt, Ian Breakwell, Stuart Brisley, George Levantis and David Hall, had important placements or early associations with the APG.Like many other British artists and groups working outside common frameworks, the APG had a high profile abroad, particularly in Germany. Recent years have seen an increasing recognition that the APG served as a catalyst for many artist-in-residence programmes and community schemes, both in Britain and abroad. However, the APG’s brief was always more about political, social, and long-term engagement than about parachuting artists into problem zones. Like British Pop, the APG initiated and developed an aspect of art practice long before many of its contemporaries.Today the organisation exists as Organisation and Imagination (O + I). The name APG was changed in 1989 in order to distinguish it from the art administration’s placement schemes, set up closely along the lines of the APG’s legacy, to the group, highly problematic. O + I describes itself as ‘an independent, international artist initiative, a network consultancy and research organisation’. Its board of directors, members and specialist advisors include leading artists, civil servants, politicians, scientists, and academics from various disciplines [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Portrait of T.S. Eliot.

      [No date c.1977] 450 x 560 mm in glazed wooden frame. Artist's Proof print captioned and signed in pencil by the artist. A note on the backing to the frame suggests that this was a limited edition print of 45 copies. The backing also has a label with Jacqueline Morreau's London address. A handsome image of the poet deep in thought somking a small cigar. "A US born figurative painter working on the representation of women from a feminist viewpoint, Jacqueline Morreau studied with Rico Lebrun in Los Angeles and completed a training in medical illustration before settling permanently in London in 1972. Technical skill and concern with depicting the human body have both remained central to her work, even when this commitment contravened feminism's 1970s rejection of oil painting as too traditional to be politically valid. Although Morreau's art is traditional in appearance, it is revolutionary in content. Morreau was one of the four artists who organized "Women's Images of Men" - an exhibition which opened at the Institute of Contemporary Arts and toured Britain in 1980-81 - and, in her paintings and drawings, she has continued to express what she has described as `the divided self'. Through metaphorical scenes, often derived from classical mythology, Morreau presents complex and often conflicting views of women which not only reclaim and represent familiar stories from a female perspective, but also act as allegories for the values of contemporary society... Just as Greek mythology is underpinned by strata of complex and ambiguous sexual messages, so are Morreau's paintings... Morreau is one of the few artists to produce work that is both didactic and open to wide interpretation. " Louisa Buck, The Sexual Imagination, ed Harriett Gilbert, London 1993

        The Shining

      A UK First Edition, First Printing (New English Library 1977 with the code 'R49' present on page 447). The print run for the US First Edition was 25,000 and, given the low print runs of the UK editions of 'Carrie' and 'The Stand', which consisted of just 500 and 1000 copies respectively, the UK First Edition of 'The Shining' is likely to be considerably rarer than that of the US. Small bump to top of spine; edges toned and lightly foxed; a little off-setting to front endpaper and front board slightly bowed at the bottom. Original and unclipped dust jacket has some rubbing, chipping and wear to the top with a stain to the inside, and is now protected in a high-quality archival cover. A good copy of a contemporary classic.

        1977 Unpublished Interview on "Athletes Series" - SIGNED Original Audio Cassette with 40 MINUTES OF RECORDED INTERVIEW

      - Original cassette tape, autographed by the artist himself, of a 1977 interview with Warhol conducted by a journalist for Australian Women's Weekly. Together with a clipping of the article that resulted, about Warhol's new "Athletes Series." Warhol has signed on a strip of masking tape on the cassette (acting on his own suggestion that the interviewer should ask all her subjects to sign their tapes!). Audio in fine quality, with a slight background humming and one period of lower volume, but voices distinct throughout. The signed strip of tape measures 3 x 0.25 inches (7 x 0.5 cm). Together with a signed and notarized letter from the interviewer. A unique item from the influential artist.The tape contains 40 minutes of audio, which was quoted in the article but has never been released or published in full. The purpose of the interview, conducted at Warhol's Factory in New York's Union Square (in an area that once had been the boardroom of S & H Green Stamps), was to discuss his series of portraits of top athletes, commissioned earlier that year by Richard L. Weisman. Weisman sits in on the interview as well. Voices heard are those of Warhol, Weisman and Kathleen Brady, who conducted the article, as well as some of Warhol's staff. Warhol discusses his love of the Polaroid Big Shot camera; his telling Muhammad Ali to be quiet so he could take his photo; Australia's appreciation for contemporary art, especially Pollock's Blue Poles; and the beauty of New York's Twin Towers. He describes O.J. Simpson as "so interesting" and "beautiful," also commenting that Campbell's Soup should be served on airplanes, among other topics. Weisman has particular praise for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. On side 2, three minutes of the tape are faint because Warhol, Weisman and Brady stepped away from the recorder and towards some of the art under discussion.Richard Weisman commissioned 8 sets of the "Athlete Series," hand-painted and silk-screened images of sports stars including O.J. Simpson, Pele, Jack Nicklaus, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, from Warhol in 1977, paying $800,000 for 80 pieces. After donating several sets of the prints to universities, the athletes themselves, and several sports halls of fame, Weisman lost the remaining sets in a 2009 theft from his home.
