        Gordon Matta-Clark : One for All - All for One. Eine Ausstellung Zur Unterstutzüng De "Fonds Gordon Matta-Clark - Zentrum Für Zeitgenössische Kunst Antwerpen"

      Düsseldorf / Antwerpen: Städtischen Kunsthalle Düsseldorf / ICC, 1979 Text: German. De Amerikaanse kunstenaar Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-78), van opleiding architect, gebruikte de stedelijke omgeving, meer bepaald de gebouwen, als materiaal. Hij bewerkte leegstaande panden onder andere door er fragmenten uit weg te snijden. Met zijn ingrepen transformeerde hij architectuur tot sculptuur, hij legde de ziel van een gebouw bloot: to convert a place in a state of mind. In 1977 werd Matta-Clark door Flor Bex uitgenodigd voor een tentoonstelling in het I.C.C. Hij kreeg de gelegenheid om een leegstaand pand aan de Ernest Van Dijckkaai te bewerken, vlakbij het Steen. Ter ere van de vierhonderdste verjaardag van de Antwerpse barokschilder Rubens noemde de kunstenaar dit werk Office Baroque. Kort na zijn dood in 1978 stelde Flor Bex voor om als hommage aan de kunstenaar het Office Baroque te bewaren en het als kern te integreren in een op de omgevende percelen nieuw te bouwen museum voor hedendaagse kunst. Dit idee werd positief onthaald en de Stichting Gordon Matta-Clark werd opgericht om de nodige fondsen te werven. Talrijke kunstenaars uit binnen- en buitenland schonken een werk in een poging het Office Baroque veilig te stellen of, indien dat zou mislukken, om als basiscollectie te dienen voor het nieuwe museum voor hedendaagse kunst dat er, zo waren de voorstanders overtuigd, nu hoe dan ook zou komen. Ondanks de inspanningen van velen werd het Office Baroque, het enige overgebleven architecturaal-sculpturaal werk van Gordon Matta-Clark na diens dood, op een zucht van de definitieve overeenkomst gesloopt. Fotos van het Office Baroque bevinden zich wel in de collectie van het MuHKA en in huidig boek.. First Edition. Soft Cover. Good.

      New York: Random House, 1979. First edition of the author's fourth novel and what many consider to be his finest. Octavo, original half cloth. An excellent example in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Suttree is the fourth of McCarthy's novels to be published, but he had started it well before his first, The Orchard Keeper, appeared in 1965 to great critical acclaim. The principle scene of Suttree is Knoxville, Tennessee in the early 1950's. The central figure, Cornelius Suttree, is a fisherman who lives in a dilapidated houseboat on the river. Estranged from his prominent family, he has withdrawn from the society they represent, choosing instead a different world inhabited by people who live precarious, desperate, often violent lives. "McCarthy is a writer to he read, to be admired, and quite honestly- envied" (Ralph Ellison).

        A Service in Memory of Elizabeth Bishop. Agassiz House. October 21, 1979

      n.p., 1979. 8 pp. 8vo. Original self-wrappers, unstitched as issued. Light marginal wrappers. 8 pp. 8vo. A scarce Bishop item, being the program for her memorial service held at Harvard two weeks after her death on October 6, 1971. Among the participants listed on p 3 are Alice Methfessel (Bishop's partner and muse for the final decade of her life), John Ashbery, Robert Fitzgerald, Robert Giroux, Octavio Paz, Helen Vendler, and Frank Bidart. Page 4-8 feature music and lyrics for the hymns sung at the service. OCLC records only three copies. Megan Marshall's recent biography of Bishop, A Miracle for Breakfast (2017), opens with an account of the service: "... more than one hundred of Elizabeth Bishop's friends and former students sat on folding chairs in a mahogany-paneled reception room [of Agassiz House], growing warm in the sunlight from the high windows on an unusually hot Sunday in late October. Waiting. Waiting to hear from a succession of friends and poets, Ashbery most eminent among them, the one assigned to read first. Waiting to sing, accompanied by portable Hammond organ, the hymns-"Rock of Ages," "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God," "Dear Lord and Father of mankind, Forgive our foolish ways!"-that buttressed the poetry but not the faith of Elizabeth Bishop, a resolute "Unbeliever," as she had titled an early poem.... Alice Methfessel ... signaled the organist to begin. "We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing," the mourners sang. And then blond, athletic Alice spoke in her steady musical voice, quoting the elegiac last lines of E. B. White's Charlotte's Web, saying all she would in public: "Wilbur felt about Charlotte exactly the way I feel about Elizabeth ... [she was] 'a true friend and a good writer.'" ... John Ashbery finally arrived, to read Elizabeth Bishop's sestina "A Miracle for Breakfast." It was the first of two she'd written, sparking a vogue for the ancient form in younger writers. Ashbery had discovered the poem as a college student in the mid-1940s, he explained, ten years after its initial publication in Poetry magazine. Bishop's sestina-clever, incantatory, casually epiphanic-inspired him to try one of his own, the first poem he'd written that he considered worth saving. He'd felt "close" to her ever since, though like many of her admirers, he scarcely knew Elizabeth Bishop..." (pp 1-4) This copy originates from the library of Methfessel (1943-2009), whom Bishop met in the fall of 1970 at Harvard, where she'd taken a position teaching advanced writing. Despite an age gap of 22 years, the two began a romantic relationship that would last almost a decade, until Bishop's death in 1979. They were constant companions, Methfessel serving as muse and sustaining force in the final years of Bishop's life. Bishop's last book, Geography III (1975), was dedicated to Methfessel, and a six-month breakup in the women's relationship was the catalyst for one of Bishop's most celebrated poems, "One Art" ("The art of losing isn't hard to master...").

        Two Donna Summer Embroidered Tour Jackets

      LP Designs / Cat's Pyjama's, (Toluca Lake, California) 1979 - Two petite, extra small embroidered jackets for tour staff. Faint spotting else about near fine with previous owner's name ("Helene"), a personal assistant who worked for Summer, embroidered on the front side of both jackets. The jackets were provided to staff for two different Donna Summer's tours, designed by Mary Bassel and handmade by LP Designs (on the companies website, they note that Summer was one of their first clients). The first is a black silk-like material embellished with an embroidered portrait of Summer and the concert details from a performance at the Hollywood Bowl on October 13, 1979. The second is a coral-colored satin jacket with black details from the "Summernights Dream Tour: Donna Summer" embroidered on the back, from another 1979 tour (not to be confused with her 1990s "Mid Summer Nights Dream Tour"). Summer had a continuous string of disco hits, including "MacArthur Park," "Hot Stuff," "Bad Girls", "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)" and the epic "Love to Love You Baby". In 1979 Summer was the first to win a Grammy for Best Rock Performance, Female, for "Hot Stuff" and later that year sold out her first appearance at the Hollywood Bowl. Donna Summer was posthumously inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 and dubbed the "undisputed queen of the Seventies disco boom."

A defining De Palma film, suspenseful in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock and intense sexuality. The film begins with a very famous update on the "Hitchcock shower scene," with Angie Dickinson very plausibly filling Janet Leigh's role.
